About Owner

I live in London, England from a young age and was educated there. Recently I have been spending lots of precious time in Jamaica where I was born. I first visited Duncans Bay in 1999 with my 2 young teenage children and we were walking along a lane which has some quaint cottages and directly in front I could see the ocean appearing through the branches of almond trees which lined the banks in front of the beach. It was such a beautiful sight. A year later I bought one of the cottages. The cottage is surrounded by a beautiful garden with tropical plants. The living room opens out to the patio area which makes it light and airy. All the bedrooms have louver windows bringing in fresh sea breeze into the rooms. There is a green area that stretches along the beach with many trees for shades. This area is great for children to play on. My children love this area along the beach and they now bring their children to play there. On a Saturday night live music is performed by local artists at the Beach bar. This area is ideal connection to many attractions and Montego Bay Airport is just 45 minutes drive.

Owner purchased this Villa in 1999

Why Owner chose Trelawny Parish

I love the idea of strolling to the beach early mornings with a cup of coffee and take in the views and if energetic go for a swim.

                                                                  andrea R.

                                                                  We loved our stay!! Our teenagers loved being able to walk to the beach. We felt safe enough to let them head down during the day with out us. The food that Joan cooked was fantastic! It was our first time staying at a home that provided a housekeeper/cook, Joan was so Wonderful. Thank you for making us comfortable in a new situation.

                                                                  Best holiday ever! Nice space and professional and warm staff!

                                                                  Dawoon C.

                                                                  It was my first time in Jamaica, and my husband and I took our 7 month old daughter. We really had a great time. The place is absolutely great - very nicely decorated and great vibe. It is a beautiful house - nice rooms and excellent garden. Joan and Curtis are amazing. They are very kind, highly professional, and extremely thoughtful. Joan is an excellent cook - her food is amazing - healthy and tasty. This was also my first time to stay at a private residence/villa instead of hotels when I travel abroad (I travel a lot for my work) - after this experience, I feel that in Jamaica, I will definitely choose a private residence like Yellow Canary than hotels. For food, Joan will go to markets and get ingredients as per your request. Curtis - who is a gardner - also helped us set up an umbrella in the beach and was always helpful. They also had a pack and play (we brought ours but they have it there) - my daughter loved the space and slept like a baby throughout our 5 nights of stay! Veronica (the owner) is also very responsive and accommodating - and I enjoyed interacting with her. Overall, I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy a low-key and relaxing family (or couple) holiday near the ocean - I feel also safe around the villa as well as the house is located in a residential area only a couple steps away from the beach.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

The family was very friendly and clean and have treated the property as it were their own. Joan the cook enjoyed cooking them meals and we would love to have them back in the future.

                                                                  Property well maintained

                                                                  Claudia B.

She helped with our groceries and her cooking is superb. Only complaint I have is no air conditioning in living room, so couldn't was the daybed at night. I recommend bringing bug spray, lots of mosquitoes at night. The beach is steps away from the house and is beautiful. The outside decor is very relaxing to I sit outside. I would definitely stay again on my next visit.

                                                                  Just what I needed!

Joan and Sandra prepared delicious meals. Johnny and Curtiss were great, welcoming and helped show us around. The beach is less than a block away. Just perfect!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

Iris was an amazing hostess and cook and Curtis took wonderful care to make sure the property was in great condition every day. We felt so taken care of and loved seeing their smiling faces everyday.

                                                                  We were able to use a pack and play and highchair for our 9 month old son which was great so we didn't have to bring our own. The beach was spectacular and Leroy's bar was a perfect place to spend Saturday evening listening to live reggae music.

                                                                  Johnny and Turbo drove us to the Blue Hole and Martha Brad River Rafting which we thoroughly enjoyed. We hope to be back!

                                                                  I loved everything about my stay at Yellow Canary. The house is even better than pictured and just steps from an amazing beach. Picture yourself taking a deep breath on a beautiful white sand beach with crystal clear water because this is what you get just steps from your front door.

                                                                  Veronica has created a very peaceful place. The beds are comfortable, staff are reliable and friendly, excellent wifi, ac and ceiling fans basically all of the comforts of home. She has some really amazing gardens, very well tended by Curtis. Everything was so easy. We will definitely be back.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

Just 10 minutes drive from here is Falmouth Town which is an old historical town with lovely old buildings, churches, shops, a hospital, and a great market. Some of the largest cruse ships dock here 3 times weekly. Historical plantation houses such as Good Hope Great House and Rose Hall are worth seeing. Dunns River Falls, Swimming with the Dolphins, and River Rafting Adventure are a must.
