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!

Most RELAXING vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed, everything was simply amazing! The owner was always quick to respond to questions. You can tell they focused on the smallest detail in the home. Each bedroom had separate air conditioners, the home is more open air. We spent every waking hour in the outdoor living space & was only inside while sleeping.

There were 6 adults & 6 children (ages 11-16) in our party. We spent a lot of time on the beach, in the pool & kayaking around the bay. Each morning, we would enjoy coffee on the dock & feed the fish. We would kayak out to the reef where there are some beautiful snorkeling areas. We rented a boat that picked us up from our dock & took our entire party out to the reef. It was gorgeous! The waterfront area right in front of the house is not ideal for swimming. They do provide passes for a more sandy beach area a 15 minute walk away. We all wore water shoes when getting in the water & swam out to a more open area away from the sea grass by the shore. I would caution against going into the water without water shoes. A few in our party stepped on sea urchins, but Ms. Delores came to our rescue & helped pull the small spikes out!

I have to rave on the staff at Elsewhere. They truly are a key part of what made our week long stay so perfect. Mr. John kept the grounds clean & pristine during our stay. Kassandra is the chef & her food is going to be better than anything you could get at a restaurant. I would plan on her cooking every meal for you. We provided a list of drinks/food to have upon our arrival. Once we were there, we met with her to go over the meal plan for the week. We had some picky eaters, but she always incorporated a variety so that everyone had something they could eat. I gained 3 pounds that week & it was worth every glorious ounce! Kemoy would set the most stunning table before each meal. My son was in awe of all his folded napkin designs, Kemoy took the time to show him how he did them. He also made the best mixed drinks! He assisted us with setting up transportation to the straw market. We truly appreciate all that he did for us. Ms. Delores is an absolute gem! She did everything from the housekeeping & laundry, to pulling sea urchin spikes out of our feet, to giving some of the best advice I've ever received in my 41 years! Simon was available to drive us where we wanted to go. I left there feeling like the staff was part of our family. You will not be disappointed in this home, I promise!

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!
