Simply Amazing. Fantastic Week.

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect way to enjoy Jamaica.

The House:

- Stunning. Comfortable. High end. Everything was perfect. You will spend most of your time in the outdoor living space. Enjoying the pool, the lagoon, the beach.

- The towels, the place settings, the flowers, everything was just so well done.

The Service:

- Lovely. The staff was simply a joy. Delores took great care of our needs. Kassandra cooked fabulous meals (better than any restaurant). Kemoy set up fantastic meals on the breach, on the dock, in the outdoor space. John took care of the gardens.

- Meals. Worth mentioning again. Kassandra is a tremendous chef. She made us local dishes that were absolutely delicious. Great morning coffee as well.

The Experience:

- We were eight very happy adults in the space. We enjoyed the lagoon for swimming and Kayaking, the dock for our morning coffee and admiring the sea life, the tennis courts and the community.

- We felt at home, pampered and relaxed.

Don't miss this house. It's one of the best vacation spots ever.

All the best to the wonderful team there! It was a joy!

OMG... I Cried When I Left

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at a number of vacation homes around the world, and this is by far the top on my list. Everything from the beginning (making the reservation online) to the end (pulling out from the driveway) was flawless, smooth, and well executed.

Connie was very responsive to every email I sent, and made sure that every request was communicated to the staff at the house, where they executed everything without any reminders. If something in our schedule needed changed, the staff did not hesitate.

The home is gorgeous, in a safe community, upscale, comfortable, and warming. I loved that every room had its own bathroom. Some with views of the ocean, balconies, and view of the Veranda or Garden. Very well laid out.

Staff are friendly, hard-working, attentive, fun, and absolutely AMAZING!!! This was the first time I made a reservation to a property where there were 4 staff members. I usually only book the chef, but this home had everybody. I was a little concerned as I didn't know what to expect and didn't want to "FEEL" like I was in someone's else's home, but that was never the case. We had access to everything, and we never felt like we couldn't be ourselves. The only staff that stayed at the premises was our housekeeper, Dolores, who stayed in another wing and was never intruding to our vacation. She always made sure we had everything we needed, and in those late nights where we needed something she was always there. After staying there for 8 days and 7 nights, I understand the choice of why one staff stay at the property. She even nursed a few of my friends back to health after too much partying in the city. :-)

I highly recommend coming in with an open mind, and ready to receive some of the Jamaican culture, especially when it comes to the food. Kassandra, our Chef put the icing on the cake to our vacation. She cooked as often as we needed or wanted, and literally everything cooked to perfection with Jamaican flavors. We allowed her to "do her thing", and did not want things that we could eat back in the States. She remembered a few of my friends dietary restrictions and worked around them. The only negative thing I have to say about her, is when you get back home you're going to be a little depressed as she will not be there.

I'm running out of characters on this review, but you would be crazy not to book Elsewhere Villa. I highly recommend, and hope to be back very soon to visit again. You won't be disappointed. Promise!

Preparing to book my fourth visit!

  • 5 of 5

After visiting Elsewhere three times and preparing to book my 4th visit I think it’s time I wrote a review!

Three of the last four years my wife and I have joined with 4 other couples for a week at Elsewhere. For several very good reasons there is no better place to relax and unwind with friends and family.

First the house and the grounds are perfect. Every furnishing is top tier, every towel and pillow soft, every nook and cranny clean and polished. You can immediately tell that a great deal of attention has been paid to the design and finishes. The pictures are no exaggeration, there is no way to be disappointed.

Second, there is so much to do …or nothing to do …as you prefer. For example, our crew enjoys tennis. Most mornings about half of us will head up to the courts and half will lounge on the deck reading or looking for starfish from the dock. When tennis is over breakfast is on the table for all of us to reunite, and enjoy. In the afternoon there is the pool to lounge in or beside (a full Olympic size pool is also available next to the tennis courts), kayaks to paddle, music to enjoy and sports available on the big screen TV at the bar. If you are so inclined the staff will arrange an excursion, order you a masseuse or the Hard Rock café is a short walk where you can enjoy a long sandy beach with a resort type atmosphere. All these activities and more are available, but in true Jamaican fashion none are pressured. Enjoy if you like, and if not feel free to nap all day!

Finally, the service is over the top. Deloris, will launder your clothes and clean your room while Kemoy keeps your drinks fresh all day. Cassandra is ready to prepare three sit down (multiple course) meals for you. Or, she will alter the service as you desire. (We prefer fruit with coffee, breakfast after tennis, a light lunch buffet and then a full evening dinner). One of our party requires a gluten free diet and she reports that this is her favorite vacation because she is always accommodated and isn’t just limited to “Garden Salad.” Another often over looked advantage to having a gourmet chef on premise is that there is never the troublesome negotiation amongst your party about when and when to go eat!

All-in-all this is an unforgettable stay that you should not miss. Absolutely I would recommend Elsewhere… Just don’t book my week!

Amazing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Elsewhere! The staff made our stay incredible, laundry done and fantastic meals cooked for us all day:). The kids enjoyed swimming, building sand castles, and exploring the beach for washed up jellyfish and starfish. The best snorkelling site was literally right out the back door but it's a bit of a kayak to get there and the kayaks need some fixing up (back rests). We had an awesome bonfire one night on the beach and a paint night one night as well. So much to do for everyone!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 stay at Elsewhere by the Sea for my 40th birthday celebration and this place exceeded all of our expectations! The house is beautiful and big - with 10 people we never felt crowed and there are plenty of spaces to find a private moment to take in the beauty around you - we all fell in love with the trees and the sunsets. The staff was so professional and warm - Delores, we miss you! Kemoy, thank you for tending to our every request - your Rum Punch was too good! Cassandra, you added 5 lbs to my waistline, but it was so worth it! Every meal was wonderful (the pepper beef was our favorite) and she even sent us off with her amazing banana bread for our plane trip home. We had dinner on the beach, dinner on the dock, a bonfire on the beach, and an unforgettable night painting with Island Strokes. This was truly a trip we will never forget and Connie was a pleasure to work with and incredibly flexible with making this trip perfect - THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

Elsewhere is Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this villa justice. The house is beautiful furnished, the grounds immaculate and the staff AMAZING! We cannot wait to go back.

We also enjoyed the tennis, kayaks, and walks around the hotel area. Needed some exercise to compensate for Kassandra's amazing meals! Highly recommend.
