  • 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"

  • Just Do It!

    "Our family of five just returned from our stay at Palm Villa in the quaint parish of Duncans. This was our first visit to Jamaica and we LOVED IT! The parish of Duncans is smaller and less touristy than other places in Jamaica. You will have a more authentic and relaxed Jamaican experience in this area. The parish has a nice grocery store, bakery and meat shop. You'll also have access to fresh fish directly from the local fisherman. Within walking distance of the villa, you'll find a bar/eatery called Leroys and another small bar/eatery. You'll also find shops where the locals sell souvenirs, wood carvings, paintings and etc. When we arrived at Palm Villa, we were greeted by our host, Jennifer. She immediately took us under her wing and made us feel right at home. We found Palm Villa to be well appointed, clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. We especially liked having comfortable beds and bathrooms in each of the bedrooms. Other features that we appreciated were the ceiling fans (there is air conditioning, but we didn't use it), WIFI, and lovely yard with shady areas to relax in. Jennifer is a wonderful person who will do everything that she can to make your stay enjoyable. She will cook amazing meals for you and so much more. Jennifer is well known and respected in the area and we were so happy to have her there to help us understand how to use Jamaican currency, recommend things to do in the area, arrange for locals to take us snorkeling and to visit a cave, negotiate prices on our souvenirs, and arrange for transportation when we wanted to go to Ocho Rios and etc. She uses a driver named Mr. Mason who is excellent. He is a safe driver who knows many things about the area and he will point things out as he drives. Palm Villa is a treasure in the Duncan's area. While we visited, there were many people who came by the villa and commented on how they wished that they had been able to stay there as opposed to their current location. Palm Villa is more private than other cottages, it has a beautiful yard filled with flowering plants and trees and it is a two minute walk to the beach. The beach is magnificent. It is private and very expansive. We were often at the beach with other locals but it was never crowded. We swam, snorkeled, and walked the beach on a daily basis. If you are looking for a tranquil, relaxing, safe, and wonderful place to visit, choose Duncans and Palm Villa. You won't be sorry, just do it!"

  • Unforgettable, absolutely stunning

    "Out Of The Blue Villa is a slice of heaven on earth: everything was beyond my expectations from the exceptional beachfront setting to the beauty of the villa's design to the dizzying array of fresh fruit and delightful traditional Jamaican dishes prepared and served by the incredible staff. The layout of the villa allows for both lounging quietly by yourself and congregating with your fellow guests in spacious common areas, in the sun or shade. The pool sparkles in the sunshine all day long and conveniently offers an umbrella and two chairs for a wonderful way to cool down after beach-combing or hiking the surrounding bluffs while enjoying unobstructed water views. Though my boyfriend and I stayed at Out Of The Blue with six other friends and certainly enjoyed our group time, we also found it incredibly romantic, easily finding adventures to embark on together off the property or simply listening to the waves crash upon the shore while swinging lazily in the totally cool canoe-turned-loveseat on the veranda. Thoughtful highlights include a sound system with speakers wired outside to enjoy your tunes, well-stocked and perfectly situated outdoor bar with ice machine (a true necessity!), funky outdoor driftwood rinsing station to avoid bringing the beach into the villa with you, and of course, the incredible staff who went above and beyond for each of us every day: not having to rinse a plate, make a bed, or do laundry certainly heightened my sense of being in paradise! At the owner's recommendation, we checked out the Appleton Rum Estate tour, YS Falls, and rented a boat from Treasure Beach to take us out to the Pelican Bar - all of which I highly recommend. The only meal we had outside of the villa was at Jake's on Treasure Beach, also recommended by the owner and an absolute must in my books. My Villa experience was exceptional and has left a lasting impression; without a doubt, I would return to Out Of The Blue in a heartbeat!"

  • FIVE STARS ALL THE WAY!

    "Our stay at Oclam Lodge was unforgettable start to finish! The location was jaw-dropping, backing onto the the 18th green of the famous run away bay golf course & just a stones throw away from the paradise beach that is run away bay. The staff were incredible, everything was catered for, We took our 18th month year old & ms Sharon was an outstanding hostess & we felt more than comfortable. We've already booked our second vacation for February & we really couldn't recommend any higher 'FIVE STARS'... a real must Steve & Katie (UK)"
