  • Honeymoon Getaway

    "My wife and I recently got married in Montego Bay where we stayed for 4 days leading up to the wedding. After the wedding we spent our honeymoon at the Buccaneer villa for 7 nights. We loved the Buccaneer Villa and Treasure Beach for many reasons! We found that Treasure Beach had more sun than the Montego Bay side and the ocean was calmer which led to many afternoons spent on the beach. The private swimming pool was also a nice option that we tended to use every morning. Nikki, our cook, cooked amazing meals both in the morning and evening! We ate better in one week than we have in our entire life! The one day that Nikki did not cook for us, we walked through town about a mile and a half to a restaurant called Smurfs for breakfast. Everybody that we passed was friendly, smiled and would say hi. We never once felt unsafe during our stay in Treasure Beach. Our last night at the Buccaneer Villa, Bama, the grounds keeper, built us a bon fire on the beach which was a perfect ending to our stay. The thing that we enjoyed most about staying at the Buccaneer Villa was the relaxation. We felt completely separated from the rest of the world and were able to enjoy each other's company without and distraction. It was by far the most relaxing vacation that we have ever had and we already plan on going back with friends and family! Thank you Mary, Nikki, and Bama for a honeymoon that we will never forget!"

  • A Jamaican Balm for the Soul

    "Back in 1974-76 I taught school in Jamaica for two years, living near Savannah La Mar with my three kids. Many times I have been back, but my most recent trip was truly memorable. My husband and I had grown tired of the noise, too many tourists, and hustle of the North Coast, so we decided to try the South Coast this time because we know it's still unspoiled. We searched the internet and loved seeing the pictures and reviews of Rainbow Tree, so we booked there. We were not disappointed! It's an incredibly beautiful spot, well-maintained, and looks oh so Caribbean, sitting on a bluff above the sea. We were greeted by Laura and Jenny who had prepared a very tasty group of appetizers and drinks for us to enjoy, which we did on the back veranda. Somehow we timed our arrival to just before sundown, so we relaxed with our drinks, watching a picture-perfect sunset, the colors varied from pink to orange to purple, as the sun slipped into the sea. I knew then that our vacation would be filled with good people, good food, nature, and relaxation. Ahhhhh... Each morning we walked up the nearly deserted beach to the fishing village, where brightly-painted boats were pulled up on the beach. If you see anyone, tourist or local, the person will greet you with a smile, but won't intrude on your experience. What a contrast to the hustle of the crowded beaches of the North Coast! Both Laura and Jenny have worked with the owners of Rainbow Tree for many, many years, Laura since it was built 23 years ago—and Jenny for a dozen. What a great tribute to the owners that their staff does not want to leave! What a great tribute to Laura and Jenny, that the owners are happy with them, too! With so many years of experienced staff, you can imagine how smoothly and calmly the place runs. Aman, Laura's husband, is available for transport if you don't have a car. He drove us all the way over to Grange Hill, several hours away, so I could visit my old school. It was so gratifying to be greeted with smiles from several on staff who had been there those many years ago when I taught there. I couldn't stop crying, especially when I reunited with two of my students who teach there now. That's Jamaica, full of beautiful people and beautiful places, all glowing beneath the Caribbean sun. Try Rainbow Tree---the staff is dedicated to making your stay wonderful, the sea is there to salve your soul, and you will come back contented and refreshed."

  • Amazing!

    "Golden Sun Villa is summed up in one word: AMAZING! We went to Jamaica on our honeymoon hoping for a romantic getaway. Before our trip started the owner emailed us a full list of activities to do and things to know when there. All of the recommendations were great and saved us a lot of time looking into things to do. He answered all of our specific questions and was a pleasure to deal with in all regards. Once we got to Jamaica we rented a car and had a beautiful one hour drive to the villa. We were greeted by the very friendly staff and Franz the grounds keeper showed us around the gorgeous grounds. Larna the cook was exceptionally helpful and very kind. We had her purchase all of our food before getting there, so we arrived to a fully stocked fridge, with delicious fruits, and enough food for her to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner for us for the week stay. Chelsea the housekeeper/maid was a delight as well. She cleaned up after us so we never had to lift a finger. She even made a floral arrangement on our bed every morning, very tropical! The house is very spacious with a cozy master bedroom. The lounge area has a TV with couches around to hang out after a long day out. The absolute best part of the villa is the backyard. It has an unbelievably scenic background with the ocean crashing against the shore and palm trees blowing in the wind. Our favorite part of the backyard is the stunning pool. We would stay outside for hours at night swimming under thousands of sparkling stars. It is truly a spectacular sight we won’t soon forget. Other notable parts of the grounds was the all you can eat sea grapes that grow next to the house, the almond tree on the grounds which we got to eat from, and the total privacy we had. We had the time of our lives there and hope others can enjoy it as well. If you are planning a trip to Jamaica I would definitely recommend staying here."
