Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Pat, thank you very much for sharing your home, we had an awesome time! The food and service was any resort we have ever stayed in. We understand that there will always be a few things that don't go your way when traveling and our biggest complaint is that we couldn't stay longer because the week went by way too quick...and yes we were discussing the possibility of returning next year. Thanks again, we absolutely loved our family vacation! Everything was like you said it would be or even better.

We had an awesome time at Pat's house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was even more beautiful in person. The pictures do not do a complete justice. Pat and Josh were awesome host. We felt very safe at all times. The private beach was nice too. Stores were close by. I hope to go back many more times. The only thing I would say is that the amenities for the house mentions the house has air condition. However, only one bedroom out of 3 had air condition. You do not need air condition during the day. There was always a nice breeze. However, at night you needed to have air condition if you like it cooler to sleep. The air was less breezy at night. I would definitely recommend this home to friends!

Owner's Response: Thank you Kevin for the nice review! You were awesome guests, just the kind we love to have in our home! I am sorry about the 2 A/C’s that weren’t working. We are in the process of getting new ones. If we would of had more notice that you were renting from us, we would of had that taken care of. Anyway, I’m happy you still had a great time! Hope to see you again sometime! Pat & Josh

Lovely time in a lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from our wonderful Jamaican vacation and stay in Fanta Sea. Pat was a helpful host, offering ideas of places to visit and occasionally checking in on us. The beach we had easy access to was clean and peaceful and the location was perfect for day excursions in Ocho Rio and beyond. On our last night my family each shared what was the best part about the trip and we were unanimous that it was the cook Oswald’s meals. Do yourself a favor and have him take care of you. Pat did our shopping beforehand and every day we sat down to a delishious breakfast and dinner without any fuss. I highly recommend staying here for a resort like esperience without having to actually stay in a resort.

Great property, great stay..

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a week at Fanta Sea. The property and house are well kept complete with fruit trees, gazebos, hammocks, and a pool which the kids really liked. The staff was also very sweet and accommodating and included a cook, butler, and housekeeper. It was great being pampered with meals, cleaning, and laundry each day! Josh, the caretaker and security, can get a bit carried away but I think he had our safety in mind so I gave him some latitude. Kids loved the golf cart ride to the private beach!

Owner's Response: Thanks Matt, Glad your family enjoyed your stay! I know our staff works hard to make that happen for you!! I know to some people it seems Josh takes his job of security (locking the house at night) a little to serious and to others they really appreciate it! He just believes in taking care of our guests. Happy New Year to you and the family! Looking forward to seeing you again!!

Best vacation ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this place to anyone. We all loved our relaxion time at the villa. Everyone is so friendly. We had a loss in our family and Pat and Joshua was so helpful in making this trip very precious and dear to our hearts. The cook Inez and the housemaid Sharon were both wonderful. Joshua made time to take us wherever we wanted to go and would wait for us with no pressure. We all came home with great memories and hope to visit with Pat and Joshua again. Thank you guys for everything!!!
