"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!!!"

"We had never been to Duncans Bay before, although we have been to Jamaica many times. This was our first time renting a house vs. staying at a hotel or resort. We loved it. It was my husband, myself and our closest friends (another couple). We loved having a house with a back terrace and front terrace and other rooms to hang out in, instead of just a hotel room or other areas in a resort. It was very private and relaxing. Johnny picked us up at the airport and took us to two restaurants during our stay, and drove us back to the airport. He also took us to Silver Sands to snorkel and any where else we wanted to go. On the way in he took us to the grocery store so we could stock up on some essentials. Sandra and Iris were wonderful and it was so nice not to be the one cooking!! We enjoyed fresh fish and lobster and local Jamaican cuisine all done to perfection. We looked forward to Curtis' arrival each day...he was wonderful to talk to and takes his job as gardener very seriously. We met Veronica upon our arrival and she couldn't have been nicer. It was very easy to communicate with her via email, prior to arriving and no problem at all working out all the details. The street is small and wonderfully quiet and peaceful. The beach is mere steps away, and despite being a public beach it felt very private the whole time we were there. We will definitely go back!!"

"My husband and I spent 10 days at the villa and it was a fabulous vacation! We had the best housekeeper and cook, Honey, who was so gracious and helpful! Honey made our meals, which were absolutely delicious and she assisted us with plans for adventures. We rented our own car and had a wonderful time exploring at our leisure. It was our pleasure to meet Kathie and Doug and to get to know them alittle during our stay. We would highly recommend this villa for your next vacation!"
