  • Wonderful stay at the Treehouse

    "This was my fourth time staying at the Treehouse, but the first time in this apartment with 6 other people. The beds were comfortable, the rooms are always very clean there's a full kitchen and a dining room table. We were 7 people staying here - 2 youngest in the loft (which has a staircase that is not for older people) Having 3 full bathrooms was great at the end of the day when everyone needs to get ready for dinner and bed time. The staff at the Treehouse is fabulous and friendly. The owner is a very lovely person who cares about her guests. You can't ask for a better beach - you're right in the center of it all here. Many restaurants nearby and the hotel's restaurant and bar serve delicious food and drinks. Thank you again for a wonderful experience! I will be back!"

  • Fantastic!!

    "Fantastic pretty well sums it up! The villa is in great location we found a couple of really good eating places within walking distance of the villa. If you don't have a car it would be quite a walk into ochi but no need to worry there's plenty of cheap taxis passing on the main road and also the bus service if you want to do it properly! The villa is a Short walk to a lovely beach on a private road. Glad the villa came with the pass to the Bamboo Blu beach club, otherwise I don't think we would have had access to the beach without having to do the ten minute drive down into ochi town! The villa's estate neighbours The RUI hotel so most of the beach belongs to them...not a problem to us as we had ample beach to ourselves! Not that impressed with Bamboo Blu restaurant....pricey for a family with three kids not too bad if you are just a couple...after all ...you are on holiday! Free WiFi on the beach is great! The pictures of the villa do not do it justice .....it is fantastically spacious!! The main lounge is stunning as you walk in to the wooden beams/open roof space...gets quite hot in there! All the bedrooms have remote control air conditioning ( do not overuse) the rooms are well decorated and have all the space you need. The place is reasonably well maintained and was clean on our arrival. Nellie came and took the stress of maintaining the hygiene and the manager Suzanne was promptly on hand when we had a kettle disaster! (Us English like our tea!!) kids were well entertained on lazy days with the pool table, board games, books, easel, loads of garden space for family football! We spent two weeks here (4 adults and five kids aged 17, 16, 12, 10 and 1 years old) I would recommend Caribbean Dawn to everyone I know! Thank you to Ms Porter-Whyte who made the booking process easy and took the anxiety out of booking over the Net. I want to be there now!!!"

  • Wow, wow, wow!!!

    "We just returned from staying at Seagrapes for 1 week. Before we even left home, we felt well taken care of by the owners, Tony & Sheila. They contacted us via email and phone several times. They arranged our airport transfer to Seagrapes, a man named Norval, who they hand-picked for us. He was fantastic. We used him several more times throughout the week. Upon arrival to the house we were greeted in the driveway by the staff, who had genuine welcoming smiles on their faces. They immediately set the tone of "you're on vacation, let us do the work!" Robbie had drinks ready for us, Laura Lee showed us the house, and Blossom brought fresh towels out to the pool, all within 10 minutes of us arriving. Kurline made us a pasta dish for lunch, and as I pushed away from the table, I realized that it was the first time that I felt TRULY RELAXED while on a vacation. The staff at Seagrapes is PHENOMENAL. I cannot say enough about each individual. Kurline's meals were a treat. The food she made was simply delicious. My children, who usually eat burgers or chicken fingers and french fries while on vacation, gobbled up every meal. Kurline spoke with me on day 2 to find out our likes and dislikes. She made the best steak that I have ever had. It was a pleasure to interact with Robbie and Laura Lee, both of whom have a gentle and kind way about them. Laura Lee noticed that my son's face was sunburned. She went outside and cut fresh aloe and cooled it in the fridge so that we could apply it to his burn. Robbie taught my son how to fold napkins for the table. He took us on a walk to a beautiful cove where we collected shells and sand dollars. George the gardner, was discreet and always had kind words to say about my family. Blossom, discreet in her own way, made sure that our living quarters and laundry were perfect. Tony & Sheila checked in several times during our stay to make sure that we were happy. Tony even met us at the Good Hope Estate and gave us a tour of the amazing property. I am a self proclaimed homebody. Usually by day 3 of a vacation, I've seen it all and I'm ready to go home. NOT this time. I was so sad to leave and cannot wait to return. 1 week was not enough. There was so much for all of us (ages 66, 42, 41, 11, 9, 5) to do on the property... snorkeling on the reef, playing on the beach, kayaking, SUP, the pool, badminton, tennis, basketball, tree swing, hammock, delicious meal after meal, and exploring the property's flora and fauna. PURE BLISS."

  • 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."
