"Our vacation at The Highland House was amazing. The staff was very attentive, made us feel like we were at home. The whole process from start to finish was flawless. I had a horrible experience trying to rent a house before, which I explained to Keressa, she reassured me that I didn't have to worry about a repeat. Thanks Keressa for an unforgettable vacation."

"The views at Anticipation Villa are outstanding. This is why you come to Jamaica!! When I am on vacation, I want to relax and not have to think about any kind of work. While at the villa, everything was taken care of. My clothing was washed and pressed, the chef always had something great cooking in the kitchen, and any need or question I had was quickly attended too. My family and I can not wait to go back!"

"My partner and I spent two weeks here in September. We arrived at Chrisanns resort late in the evening, so it was in the morning the full glory of our surroundings became fully apparent to us. The apartment itself is decorated in vibrant colours, one is my favourite. The apartment is laid out nicely and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils, which was good as we did a lot of cooking. The day bed is a great chill spot and offered my partner respite watching international cricket and catching the sea breeze. I would utilise the different seating Daniela has available for the apartment, but truly enjoy laying in one of the hammocks reading a book, i mostly fell asleep whilst being gently rocked by the sea breeze.
Having the cove right outside your door is not only beautiful to look at but gives you everything you need from the beach holiday literally at your doorstep... a lilo is a must if you want to spend time floating around in the pool (bring a electric pump if you have one) which of course is located perfect for the sun and still in view of the sea, it felt amazing to me.
There is a supermarket and restaurant, across the road, we ate there on a few occasions and it was great to fill the gaps when we did not want to cook.
If you want a relaxing holiday where you can really unwind this is the spot, the sounds of the sea by day, the crickets by night. If you want local nightlife we went to a bar across the road, or go to Oche Town and you can get a route taxi across the road. Oceans 11 is worth checking out on Sunday – Karoke night. We did not drive and we were not held back because of it, the taxis are the mode of transport for the local people and you can use them too although a tight squeeze and save $$ to have more rum drinking hammock days
Charmaine & Cathy are the best housekeepers and they made us very welcome. Trevor made sure we tasted the fruits of the garden getting jelly coconut to drink straight from the tree, and lovely herbs growing to use, rosemary and tyme and Aloes right at your feet.
We loved packing a little picnic and spend hour or two in the gazebo, waving to passengers on the passing boats, jet skis and the fishermen
The apartment and surroundings had all we needed and really enjoyed staying here, we think our apartment was defiantly in the best spot. Having been to the island many times before, i am so happy that i found this apartment and will defiantly be going back"

"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!!!"
