  • Mahvelous!

    "BEST.VACATION.EVER. My week at Selah Villa was wonderful. If you haven't seen the photos, Selah Villa is beautiful. It's a stone's throw from Jewel (the former Hedonism resort), and features its own private beach, tennis court, and a wonderful pool. It comes with all the accoutrements you'd expect, even including two kayaks (a twin and a single) and a catamaran. The staff is AWESOME! Patrick, Ryan, and Lesreen took care of our every need. They were always surreptitiously in the background, ready to assist us at a moment's notice. Occasionally we would take a nap, and Lesreen would re-make our bed again! Ryan's cooking was awesome, we never felt any need to head outside for a restaurant, having a marvelous meal with a superb ocean view nightly was spectacular. Ryan was terrific at customizing our menu and keeping everybody fed and happy. For those not familiar with Selah Villa, the staff purchases, delivers, and prepares the food, the vacationer pays for it. Ryan helped us manage our groceries and food bill very well. The tennis court is great. I was a bit disappointed that the tennis court didn't have a net strap. The snorkeling and scuba here is world class. Great snorkeling in Selah Villa's own little private bay, as well as the rocks by the Jewel resort. Great reefs out there with plenty of aquatic life. There is a sunken ship and plane nearby (about 60 feet down) for those that are scuba minded. The Selah Villa private beach features a couple of palapas with hammock and plenty of loungers on the beach. Loved the pool and jacuzzi. It's a forty foot square infinity pool. Water is warm and inviting. The near end is super-shallow for adults to lounge around in, the middle area is shallow for kids to play around in, and the far end is deep enough to swim in. Plenty of pool toys for everyone. The tech at Selah Villa was good. Two LCDs, one with netflix. Good selection of movies. PC and wireless. Probably the biggest glitch I experienced was the internet speed. Most of the days there I experienced frustrating sub-dialup speeds. Resetting the router did help for a while. For the last two days of our trip we got decent speeds, no problem. Your mileage may vary. It's not an inexpensive vacation, but when you factor in the fact that the rental rate plus groceries is all you need, it's not as bad as you'd think. You have to spend your time on this world somewhere; this is one of the finest places to do so. Five stars."

  • Nine days in Paradise!

    "Linga Awile is an amazingly peaceful place. Discovery Bay has, thankfully, not yet been discovered by the mega resorts that are cloning themselves elsewhere in Jamaica. It is a place of sun, sand, warmth and welcome! Jenni was so gracious to let us arrive a day early due to the massive storm that closed down the SE US, and Casita, Cheryl and Deano gave up their day off to welcome us. It only got better from there. The kids spent hours each day in the pool and the adults Linga'd on the Veranda and Gazebo. We all swam in the warm ocean, kayaked and melted in sunshine and 85F. Around the area we enjoyed the caves, horseback riding - into the ocean no less - rafting, and a magical visit to Glistening Waters. We went to local markets and tourist markets, shopped in the local grocery store, and came home each night to a comfortable home, and amazing meals. Don't miss Casita's fried chicken, or coconut moaa, or the talapia! Cheryl kept us in dry towels and dry floors and keeps a spotless house. Deano served us coconut fresh from the tree, every meal, took care of the yard and allowed us the priviledge of getting to know him better in the evening. Moma Casita, Auntie Cheryl and Brother Deano, we have already booked the same time for next year!"

  • We love Villa Seagull!

    "Me and my husband, Michael have gone for many many years and always stay at Villa Seagull. There is a reason for that. Not only is the Villa close to the beach but we always feel like we are coming home. The house is wonderful and inviting and the food that the staff cooks for you, is amazing!! Home cooked Jamaican style! Trudie the owner is a wonderful host, and very special person! It is truly a very special and magical place to go if you want the real vibe of Jamaica!! Sherry and Michael Schuessler"

  • The week that I look forward to the most each year.

    "This was the second week that I have spent at Villa Mara. It was like coming home! We were met at the front door with welcomes and hugs. Last year I thought that the stay was amazing - this year - it was even better. I don't know how the staff did it but they remembered little details about our likes and were right on top of everything. The beautiful house has the atmosphere of real Jamaica and I must say that I got the back to boarding school feeling when we had to leave. My husband, daughter, son-in-law and two grand daughters accompanied me on this trip. Every one had a blast and felt most pampered. My grand daughters both cried when they left. Many very, very happy memories have been made at Villa Mara. For that week we were made to feel that it was our home."
