About Michelle

We are a couple (English & Spanish) that manage and own our family property. Having moved to Jamaica in 2014 we now live onsite to ensure our guest receive the customer service and Jamaican experience from the first start of there holiday.

Michelle purchased this villa in 2005

Why Michelle chose Ocho Rios

Garden House was loving restored by my parents having been left a ruin for many years. The villa is a historical colonal property with lots of history. The gardens having been lovingly looked after by my late father is now maintained and a huge selling point of our villa. 4 acres of tropical gardens gives the peace and tranquillity to Garden House with it's wealth of fruit trees and plants and wildlife. You will not only get the hospitality you deserve but the combined local knowledge of 50years that will show you the hidden and true Jamaica.

What makes this villa unique

Close to all local hot spots including Dunns River, Coyaba falls and dolphin cove.

My stay was awesome. The workers there are very nice, friendly, and always made sure we were okay. My wife, family, and myself, had a wonderful time at this villa, and will surely use again. Recommend to everyone.

Amazing Staff in an Amazing Country

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed ourselves during our week at the Garden House. The room arrangements were a good size for us (11 adults, 7 kids fit comfortably- kids sharing beds); young and old enjoyed the pool; and we got the much needed rest and relaxation we needed. The compounds surroundings were beautiful, sitting atop the trees with a view of the ocean. Leonie and Faithlyn's incredible work truly make this house great. To say they went above and beyond is an understatement. They made themselves available almost 24 hours a day, even when we told them we could handle things from that point (in the day). Their cooking/cleaning, their local advice, their assistance with transportation- they made our trip easy and comfortable. They were gracious, fun, and loving- like they were a part of our family. Courtney and his fellow drivers were also amazing and entertaining, taking us from one place to another. We miss you all already!

Small points:

- internet can be very spotty, but enjoy the pool and the excursions

- while of course you come to enjoy the outdoors and the local Jamaican community, and the house has a great rustic Jamaican charm to it, but some updates can be made to make the place a bit more comfortable

- beach is close, but NOT walking distance from the house (we were able to easily arrange a ~10 minute ride to the bamboo blu beach)

Otherwise, my family would refer this house to others.

Owner's Response: Thanks for our review. I'll be sure to advise the staff of your kind words. The beach IS 10-15min walk. Bamboo Blu, is not in Ocho Rios, but in Mammee Bay, a nice beach but not the closest beach to the property. We do hope the overall experience and the private location of the property helped you create some long lasting memories with your family and hope you come again soon.

Family away from family, home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing getaway for our family! We had eleven guests total, two kids and the space was perfect for us. Spacious and beautiful rooms and the grounds were fantastic! Very clean and well kept. And such beautiful views of Ocho Rios-a prime location for pictures! While all the rooms are not air conditioned the island breeze was cool at night and it was great to hear the sounds of nature throughout the day and evening. The garden is beautiful, the tennis and basket courts were great for exercise, and the pool was perfect at any time of the day. You can't beat an all access twenty four hour pool! It was beautiful!

The best part of this property though, is the staff and owners! For the five days that we spent there they treated us just like family. Leonie, Faitlin, Rocky, and Jerome took extra time and energy to make our stay as beautiful as possible. They really did go out of the way for us (taking us everywhere and doing more than what was required). They made us feel safe and at home twenty four hours a day. We so appreciate these wonderful and loving people and will never forget them! The best service I have ever encountered (and I travel very often)-so much better than any resort or hotel.

Also, Michelle and "Mom" are such amazing people and really made us feel at home. Michelle was always easy to contact and so helpful and kind. We got to meet her during our stay and she was just as lovely and caring in person as she was during our phone, text and email conversations.

It was really amazing for us as a family to be able to enjoy the space and each other in this beautiful home. God Bless "our family" here at the Garden House. If we are to ever return to Jamaica we will definitely stay here!
