"Our stay at Blow Hole Villa was everything you could ever want in a vacation. We came in February 2015 with a group of 5 couples and we all plan to return!
The property is breathtaking along the cliff side with the natural pools forming below. Waking up to see the sunrise with a fresh cup of coffee (prepared every morning by staff) was the best, most relaxing way to start the day. All of the rooms are spacious with their own bathroom attached. I'm partial to the new guest house portion of the living space because that's where I stayed - most amazing outdoor shower!! There is ample seating and lounging space inside and around the two pools (two!!) and the smaller pool can be turned into a jacuzzi when requested.
What truly makes Blow Hole Villa unique is the staff. Each member is sweet and helpful and highly skilled at their job. Shirley's cooking is to die for- there's really no reason to venture to restaurants with the way she cooks. Fresh lobster, Johnny cakes, lamb curry, fresh fruits, callilou, coconut cakes, etc. Trust her recommendations and come hungry! Annette drove us to the store so we could pick up ingredients for Shirley's meals plus any other snacks, beer etc that we wanted. Easy and fun to make the trip into town with her! If fresh fish is what we wanted Danny (who we called the mayor of Oracabessa) would flag down the local fisherman in our backyard and come back with whatever we wanted. 20 lobsters? No problem. Or he would drive us to pick up fresh lamb just down the road. His son Neko helped out with meals set-up, firing up the hot tub, answering any questions we had -and of course- showing us how to cliff jump off Chicken Point! Marlene made sure our laundry was clean and rooms tidy. We really were spoiled!
There's not much reason to leave the property although we had a blast one day at Goldeneye resort. You can get a day pass and enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding, relaxing at the serene beach and drinking rum at one of the coolest beach bars I've ever been to. Bond Beach was closed when we were there, but I heard it is fun (walking distance). Finally, highly do NOT RECOMMEND venturing to Reggae Beach which is basically a cruise ship beach stop and a total tourist trap (I.e. The complete opposite of Blow Hole Villa!).
Janine was helpful and easy to work with. In conclusion, stay here!!!"

"With our group of ministry missionaries we "went home" again to Island Breeze Villa. Although I last stayed there almost ten years ago it has been lovingly taken care of suitably updated and staffed with the best people ever. Our housekeeper remembered me and our guests and made us feel as though we were long lost family returned home. This is a special place with great design and comfort. I would highly recommend this home for family, or friend gatherings. Island Breeze is a great place to unwind and refresh"

"We had a WONDERFUL vacation at the Wheelhouse. The house was fantastic and I cannot say enough about the staff. They made everything so easy. We all got used to being pampered very quickly. Elaine, the chef, made the most delicious meals and each day they got better and better. Of course Roddrick ,the butler, was a gem. He was always one step ahead of our needs and wants. The grounds were beautiful and housekeeping and laundry was a real treat.
I have to say the golf carts were a big hit with everyone, especially my 19 month old grandson. I wish we could have them in my neighborhood.
We hope we can return next year.
We have been taking family trips for the last 10 years and I think this was the best!"

"We just returned after a week in Jamaica at La Sirena. The house was wonderfully relaxing with the sound of the waves to help us sleep and perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids. It is a beautiful spot with an ocean view and great spot to see the stars and sunsets. Steve the owner is great to work with. Ms. Ida, the cook, has a heart as large as the island. She is a wonderful chef and we looked forward to every meal. We did some fun trips to YS Falls and the Black River and Pelican Bar. Ms. Ida can arrange transportation and help you set up any sightseeing you would like. If you want some sunshine, relaxation, and a chance to meet the island natives, this is the place for you."
