  • Delightful!

    "Our third year in a row! That should speak for itself! But to add more about why...we simply love Ms. Annette, we love this house and we love the location! Ms. Annette is the ultimate caregiver and an amazing cook. She sources food like nobody else and her meals are balanced and delicious! Being repeat "friends" she knows what we like and always delivers. My husband calls her the President of the Chamber of Commerce because she knows everything about the area and if we ask for anything she's on the phone and sourcing it pronto! In addition we have become friends and have loved getting to know her and her family! We are convinced there is no other location where we can get away from the winter, right into summer, just right into an already comfortable pace with so many familar people and explore the beautiful Jamaican culture and island! Also, we prefer to explore with our own vehicle so we always rent a car. But we have met the delightful driver, Johnny. And Karen the owner has created a beautiful home filled with positive and beautiful decor. We plan on a return visit next year! This is a great and beautiful vacation spot!!!"

  • Perfect Birthday Getaway!

    "My 60th birthday was at the end of December and we spent a wonderful week at Great Escape. What an awesome way to celebrate this milestone. My husband and I met friends on 12/28 at the Jamaica airport and thanks to Mark's tip, we were expedited thru customs by VIP Attractions (the extra $50 was SOOOOO worth it). The ride to Great Escape was a treat, with Rambo driving and being an entertaining tour guide. We made quick stop at the market in Montego Bay to stock up on snacks and adult beverages and then a stop at Border Jerk for some great chicken. What a wonderful start to an amazing vacation. The Villa was even better than we expected. Two bedrooms and two baths and a great pool (expertly maintained by Nevil) at the main house and the clubhouse at the beach was PERFECT for watching the sunset!! And Wifi!!!!! Shane prepared delicious meals for us and his rum punch should be bottled! We took a few (not many) trips to nearby attractions -- Frankly, being at the Villa was so perfect, we really didn't feel the desire to go anywhere. We did take a boat trip to the Pelican Bar and down the Black River to Sister Lou's......Captain Ted was amazing! The sea was quite choppy, but he navigated the small boat expertly. Pansy cleaned for us every day and even did some laundry for us. All and all, the combo of the villa, the staff and the laid back Jamaican culture made for a PERFECT birthday!!!"

  • A Special Place

    "Our 3rd time at Shakti Home and it just keeps getting better. Lots of interesting upgrades since we were there last and the best parts the same, amazing home cooking by Audrey, and a view to die for with the peace and serenity we needed. You leave here a new person. McCarl, the caretaker at Shakti also helped to make sure any of our needs were met. Perfect place for doing nothing but relaxing!"

  • A Must have experience!

    "Being a Jamaican at work and hearing the expats talking about vacationing at the hotels and villas on the north coast it became an item on my Annie’s List (similar to a Bucket List) to spend a weekend in the country with my 3 children. By surprise from my cousin, I was able to spend a well relaxed and awesome weekend at Serendipity. Being in the atmosphere I was stress free and well comfortable sleeping in a beautifully furniture bedroom and spending time by the pool side with the children just relaxing and enjoying the cool north coast breeze. While I was enjoying nature and the conversations with other guests, I was pampered by the staff members beyond my expectations. Mr. Garnett the butler and Ms. Ruby the cook were very polite and hospitable. The children and I enjoyed every meal served and this was concurred by my daughter’s comments “Mommy the food is so nice, I cannot stop eating it”. Without a doubt I cannot wait for my next visit and if you haven’t gone as yet, this experience is a must have. Annie…."
