  • Excellent Service

    "My husband and I were set to book this beautiful property when we had a change in plans that prevented the Jamaica end of our trip from happening. Although we didn't get to stay at Goodman Villa I want to comment on the lightening fast reply we received from Mary. I had sent requests out to nine properties and she responded immediately. He follow through on every level was top-notch to the point that we disregarded all other options. We are definately going to make time to visit this property in the future!"

  • Best Villa Vacation Ever!

    "This was a last minute booking but the owners went above and beyond to insure our trip was stress free. Unexpected to us, Leslie the butler met us at the airport with the driver, and made it his mission to take care for the rest of the week. The owners who live in Florida appear to be very involved in the management of the property and it shows. We arrived to chilled towels and met the rest of the 7 person staff who greeted us with “welcome home”. They endeavored to satisfy us in every way possible for balance of our stay. Never intrusive, always friendly, and available day and night, they quietly went about their daily routines in keeping the Villa and grounds in top shape. As they say, the best Chef’s on the island are found in the better villas and Bambu's Peaches is the best we have experienced in multiple villa stays over 20 years of visits to Jamaica. Leslie joked our first night that the meals would progressively get better each day, but we found every dinner to be equally exceptional. We opted to enjoy all of our meals in the open air dining pavilion which afforded excellent views over to Montego Bay both day and night. Other options included a formal dining room as well as a beautiful terrace area on the ocean facing corner of the property. Peaches’ multi course creations were always served by Leslie, each meal served on a different and unique place setting. All meals were restaurant quality! The villa itself is unique for the area…a blend of Caribbean Architecture (roof lines) with some old world Italian inspired features (arches; iron work) including the statues around the swimming pool which may remind some of a roman spa, or at least the Garden of the Gods at Caesars Palace (Vegas Edition). The show stopper is the grounds. Multiple levels of well-manicured lawns, fruit trees, palms, dotted with fountains and quiet spaces. Well placed Royal Palms towering over the roof tops give the property a true paradise feel. Not a bad view anywhere. In addition to the usual “free range” island foul, the owner’s love of animals is present on their island estate. The “Arc” as I called it included roaming bunnies, a few peacocks, a friendly Great Dane Pup, goats, and even a parrot who added to the menagerie. The pictures do not do the place justice. We were two and more than comfortable, but Bambu easily works for multiple couples or a larger family because of the many “hiding places” affording on demand quiet time. 5 Star Experience"

  • Fantastic!

    "Our stay at Great River House was really terrific. The house is lovely. The setting is very pretty. The proximity to Round Hill made our trips to the beach and to see friends easy. Throughout our stay, we kept noting how remarkable your staff is. Carlington is without question the best cook we have had in the Caribbean (having been coming down for 30 years). He is imaginative yet 100% reliable. As a person, he exudes warmth and welcome. He was a pleasure to spend time with. Kirk is similarly kind and warm. We spent much time with Kirk discussing the island and various details of our trip. He is a very well-spoken, thoughtful and kind man. He was a joy to be around and he very much helped make our stay what it was. Kirk and Carlington are still being discussed in our apartment in New York as Charlotte, our 3 year old, is still obsessed with them both. Last night we visited Charlotte’s grandmother for dinner and when the desert was not to her liking she asked if she could have dinner tonight with Kirk and Carlington. The ladies of the house were all smiles and so nice to see each day. The house was immaculate and laundry etc was fully reliable and 100% spot on. The grounds are very well kept and we felt secure at night thanks to Dev (and the dogs). We only regret not getting to do a bonfire so we will need to return another time! I think being able to keep a staff such as this must be a true challenge and yet a real reflection upon you both - your commitment to the house and the individuals that make up the team. They seem to think very highly of you and are really an impressive group. They are the difference in our view between a mediocre and a fantastic experience. This was a fantastic trip. We thank you for everything and very much hope to return soon."

  • Best Ever

    "Sitting here over looking the pool with the ocean in the background on the last day of vacation and reflecting back at what's been the best vacation ever. Having never stayed in a "staffed" villa I wasn't sure what to expect coming in. And having 10 adults in the house also made me a bit apprehensive -- like would there be enough room for us all to enjoy the space without being on top of each other? I'll address the space first. No worries! We quickly discovered that between lounging by the pool, or sitting in one of two conversation areas (both outside but covered) that EVERYONE was comfortable, able to make as many private calls as they needed and we didn't feel on top of each other. It was was so enjoyable to see different couples chatting and socializing. Staffed villa: Completely expands the vacation experience. The staff buys the groceries, cooks awesome meals, cleans up afterward, makes coffee in the morning -- cleans your room and a few folks in our party even used laundry service! The late risers never knew this -- but each morning a staff member cleaned the pool and swept up all the leaves -- before "most" of our crew were even out of bed. Our group marveled daily at how wonderful this experience has been. And if you are still reading reviews and trying to decide I'd recommend stop reading and start making a reservation!!!"
