The Happiest Birthday Present!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a lovely three weeks here for my birthday in January. The property location is perfect, less than five-minute walk to the beach in a safe, gated community. The staff kept the house and grounds in tip-top shape, especially Margaret and Boston. I'm already dreaming about a return visit at my earliest!

Excellent little place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Over the Moon villa this past November. It was a sweet place, very clean. Claude is a gracious host and Margret and Boston were the best. Margret did some cooking for us and it was excellent.

Wonderful Stay at the Morning Glory

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best vacations I've had in a long time. Claude and his wife were very kind and welcoming. Margaret the cook her food was amazing. She even baked me a birthday cake (red velvet) was delicious! Our driver was very helpful and always on time to take my friends and I around. I enjoyed staying in the villa, very quiet and peaceful area....oh and CLEAN! The activities and attractions are nearby definitely a plus. Everything was perfect, highly recommended. I will be back for sure!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation consisted of Dad, Mom, Son, and Daughter. So you will get a short review from each.

(Daughter's review) I had a great time at morning glory it was a wonderful vacation. it was a wonderful environment with very friendly people and a very nice rental villa. Margret was AMAZING!!! Food was delicious and Margret was great. Margret cooked very good dinners and breakfast. The Burton's, the owners of the place where very generous and nice. There is a beach right down the road where everything is no problem man, its all good! Beautiful gardens and very spacious for running around room. I loved my stay at Morning Gory Villa, it was a great experience and I think who ever wants to stay at the villa would love it as much as I did.

(Son's review) The caretaker was wonderful. Margret took such amazing care of us with her delicious food and her hospitality. Boston, the groundskeeper, took amazing care of the garden. When you get to the villa you will see just how good the grounds look. The owners, Mr.and Mrs.Burton are lovely. On the night that they ate dinner with us, they were very nice and funny. They took very good care of us. The rooms are very tidy, the AC's work well and you wake up to birds chirping away. Overall I would give this villa a 10 out of 10. Thank's to the owners and staff, our stay in Jamaica was three times better because of you. Thank you very much for the stay.

(Mothers review) Our stay was incredible.The grounds are immaculate, as is the villa, the team is genuinely caring and go out of their way to make sure guests enjoy themselves. The owners were very, very nice as well! We will not only remember the beautiful beach and the environment, but also the wonderful people we met and the memories we made. Stay at Morning Glory!

(Dad's) What can I say that has not already been said about this lovely Villa, owners and staff. Well here it is. The other portion of our vacation, for us at least is the beach and water. Well, they are both fantastic. It is a short walk, less than a minute to Bamboo Blue beach. The best part of the beach are the people who work there. The boat captain/ snorkel expert, the life guards, the activities guy, the bartenders, the managers and the wait staff are all what make you stay memorable. In short we loved it!

I will mention to Margret (delicious meals) and Boston (Care and attention) how appreciative you all were for how they made your vacation one to remember. Thank you Mum, Daughter, Son and Dad. We look forward to seeing you and your extended family here again soon. Claude & Geraldine
