  • amazing views and home

    "This is a Five Star experience! The staff were so welcoming and helpful, the house is exceptional in its beauty and amenities. Ken and Carol were so gracious and got us ready for our trip via email. Mr Goofy and Mr Walton were wonderful driving us around for our excursions and sightseeing. It was truly a fairy tale vacation."

  • A Private Paradise

    "For anyone looking to break away from the crowds and have a luxurious beach retreat, look no further. The home is lovely, the staff friendly and helpful, and the setting quiet and comfortable. We came with 4 people, but the house could easily hold 8, so we had room to spare. The beach is tranquil and steps from the back door. There are no other resorts around, so we had the whole beach and cove to ourselves! All of the household amenities were terrific, though the pool was still under construction and not usable, so that is the only reason it isn't (yet) a 5 star property. We wanted to get away from crowds, and this did the trick. It's a bit of a hike (40 mins drive in either direction) to get to a major city (MoBay or Ocho Rios), so this wouldn't be a good location for folks seeking nightlife, shopping or major tourist attractions."

  • 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!"

  • 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."

Jamaica Travel Tips

Jamaica Resorts Offer Easy Access to Breathtaking Views, Local Art and Relaxing Waters

Jamaica is a popular Caribbean destination that may be reached via air or cruise. There are plenty of sights to see and local traditions to absorb during your stay regardless of how you get there. Jamaica resorts offer access to scenic waterfalls, caves, rainforests and tropical wildlife, as well as local artwork, shops and dining opportunities.

Reserve Jamaica Resorts and Relax in the Sun

Staying in Jamaica villas means you’ll have the best of both worlds. You’ll be able to explore local natural wonders, then retire to one of the many Caribbean resorts for a restful night’s sleep. Enjoy your own private getaway on the beach, and nap in the sun as often as you like.

Rent Jamaica Villas near Local Attractions

Visitors love to tour limestone caves, waterfalls and even mineral springs near Jamaica resorts. Many of the springs are purported to have healing properties, and can be found on a simple hike through the local national forests and parks. Some Jamaica villas may also be available further inland near these natural phenomena if you prefer something a little more secluded. Many Caribbean resorts offer information on local tours and schedules so that you can plan your own adventure in the local outback!

Absorb the Local Culture and Rest at Caribbean Resorts

When you feel like simply exploring the local villages around Jamaica resorts, you can stroll along the shops and search for gifts and souvenirs to take back home with you. Try to find a local restaurant to partake in traditional cuisine for a special treat too.

Many items the locals are selling around Jamaica villas are actually handmade by island natives, so it’s not like anything you can find back at home. Don’t forget to reserve your space at Caribbean resorts to explore as much of this beautiful island as you possibly can during your stay!
