Swim in the large 30’ x 30’ pool, lie on the beach, swim in the Caribbean, or play a lively game of pool in the entertainment room.

Your cook will prepare dishes to tempt your palate and expand your knowledge of Jamaica’s fine and varied cuisine. Feel free to ask her to make some of the local dishes she thinks you might enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We booked the Villa 6 months in advance, and we were not disappointed. My wife and 3 college age children attended. This was absolutely the best vacay we have taken as a family. The home is a high quality and very luxurious. the linens, beds, towels, and furnishings are also very high quality. The Villa is located within a gated / 24 hour guarded community, and is easily the nicest place in the development. The beach has firm sand and no rocks in the water like other places in Jamaica we have visited. The staff was wonderful with Gloria being an excellent chef. She can cook anything you like and is a real pro in the kitchen. Lobster is cheap ($6 for an 8 oz. tail). Johnu, (property maintenance / security guy) also doubled as a bartender, aside from his maintenance and security duties. he sleeps onsite in a detached casita on the property and is there 24/7. The pool was always perfectly clean and great temp, while the yard and home were well maintained at all times. There is also a driver on call 24/7 for taking trips into Montego bay or Ocho Rios for excursions. highly recommend swimming with the "glow fish" excursion. The owners of this Villa live nearby (30 minutes away) and really know what they are doing, and were very hands on anytime we needed anything. They also arranged for a masseuse to come out and also had jet skis delivered to the house one day. we also visited magic Mountain (neat bobsledding ride, great ziplining!, and a "15 minute "ski lift" ride to the top of the mountain thru some serious trees and vegetation- also a great restaurant and pool onsite.) One of the coolest things Deeana arranged was a day on a large catamaran for snorkeling and lunch on a private beach. The crew was excellent, and it was an amazing day trip. Highly recommend that. there is a cool bar that is a short walk just outside the development. The internet worked great at the source - in the pool table / game room area, but was weak in other parts of the home. not a big deal as we were happy to leave the tech behind most of the trip. If you do have to get some work done during the trip, it's plenty for that. Gotta give props to Deanna as well. She is an excellent driver, and a great source for fun things to do. They have a very nice and comfortable van for transport. We will definitely be back. Thank you Rory and Deanna!!



PS. THE Carport / covered parking area would be a great place for a basketball hoop!!

Saint Ann Jamaica Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Well, we've been home 48 hours and we are trying to figure out how to go back... first and foremost, the Villa and the grounds are first class. Rory and Deana spared no expense making this place extravagant.

We were traveling with my wife, 3 daughters, 14,11, and 3, as well as my mother.

I really don't know where to start, except this was the best vacation experience we have ever had. We have spent time in Europe and all over the Caribbean and the US.

Deana (she's awesome!) picked us up at the airport and let us pick up a few extra groceries prior to arriving at the Villa. Once we arrived we were greeted by three amazing individuals. Gloria, Jhenell, and Johno.

Ms. Gloria cooked for us every day, and everything we had was amazing. She would ask every morning what we wanted for that day. Her curry shrimp is extraordinary. My kids wanted to bring her home with us.

Ms. Jhenell took care of laundry and housekeeping as well as helped us keep an eye on our little one around the pool.

Johno is the groundskeeper and the jack of all trades. My 14 year old wanted a coconut and 5 minutes later... he shows up with two. He's a great late night converser : )

The most wonderful part of this experience was the staff including Rory and Deana. I feel like we made a new family in the six days we were at Sun Kissed.

As others have stated, the internet is spotty sometimes, but there is so much to do from the magnificent pool, ping pong, kayaking. It was awesome to see my kids not on the phone every time I looked up.

Deana also arranged a private catamaran tour with Vagabond Charters. This was the coolest excursion. Andrew caters the charter to whatever experience you would like, and the day is yours until dark. This is a must if you are staying at the Villa, and it's very reasonably priced.

There is so much more that I would like to add, but I only have a few characters left. If you are looking for a very intimate beach home experience where the little details make all the difference, then the Sun Kissed Villa is for you.

P.S. my 3 year old turned 4 the day we arrived and with very little notice, Rory had a birthday cake delivered so we could celebrate.

It's the little things that matter most!

Big Ups to the wonderful people at the Sun Kissed Villa...

Paradise in St. Ann

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to review an experience that left you in tears as you were leaving. The Villa is is simply beautiful: from the pool, the furnishings, the landscape, and the view of the ocean. This was a first class experience.

Let's start with the staff. Gloria is a first class cook- every meal for 6 days was made to perfection... and you choose when you want them. Ms. Jhenell kept the Villa cleaned and did all of the laundry while tending to my wife and daughter's every need. Johno watched over my family and kept the pool and the grounds immaculate. Deana, the property owner was so pleasant every time we spoke with her. She had genuine interest in our family and what we needed to make our stay first class. More importantly than all these things... these individuals became our friends. The only excursion we took was a private catamaran tour with Andrew from Vagabond charters, where once again, Andrew and his staff watched over my family as if we were their family. The catamaran tour is a must! Glass bottom kayaks! I've never heard of that : ). The grocery store will deliver your food so you never have to leave the property should you decide you just want to relax. Local fisherman will boat up to the beach and sell fresh fish, Let Gloria do the negotiating, she will get you a deal. I've been home for 24 hours and my family and I have been in constant discussion about this being our favorite vacation.

Our vacation was a relaxation vacation, but Deana has a minibus and can take you anywhere you want to go on your trip. We would have done more excursions, but who wants to leave such a beautiful property and good friends...

Still Family- June 2017. Grandmother, husband, wife, 14yo daughter, 11yo daughter, 4 yo daughter

PS. My 3 yo turned 4 on the first day of our trip and Deana made sure we had a birthday cake for her upon arrival at the Sun Kissed Villa.

Book this Villa! You won't regret it...

This was perfection!

  • 4 of 5

All that you read about this place is true. The wonderful staff, (the cook, Ms. Gloria is the best cook), the pool, the rooms. Rory and Deana were great. Whatsapp is the best way to connect with them. The beach/water is not the nicest, but who cares when you have a pool steps away.

As someone else said, we too spent most of our time staying in the house and ventured out on one day. So relaxing. We spent hours staring at the water.

Do yourself a favor and book this place. But don't forget the mosquito repellent. This is the tropics.

Champagne campaign

  • 5 of 5

I went to the villa with a group of girls for a bachelorette party. It was fantastic! The house was very luxurious and comfortable and always clean! The members of the staff were very friendly and helpful and the food prepared was delicious. Management was very attentive and arranged convenient transportation from the villa to various attractions between ocho rios, trelawny as well as airport pick up and drop off. Overall it was a great place for us to vacation. Very fun and relaxing.

Fantastic Getaway and girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures doesn't do this paradise justice. We were a party of 8 and only had 4 days at the Sun Kissed Villa in Jamaica. The staff was so efficient and took great care to ensure we had an awesome time. The villa was well maintained, the staff met every request we had, even taking care of a ghost crab that visited us on the veranda and scared the dickens out of us city girls. Rory and his wife responded to every email and request we had before we arrived and while we were there.

Words are not enough to express what an awesome time we had at this villa. I would recommend staying here to anyone and would return anytime I visit Jamaica.

You won't go wrong or be disappointed choosing the villa as a home away from home and more, it's a paradise.

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The pictures for the house are great but when you get there you realize that you have hit the Carribean jackpot. The house is warm and inviting and so is the staff. Gloria kept our bellies full. Marion made sure our rooms were tidy and towels plentiful and Johno made sure we were safe. The house looks small from the front but when you go in its a different story. One side of the house practically opens up to let in the breeze and the magnificent views. The pool is nice and we were steps away from the beach. Only downside are the ants.... Small itty bitty ones and red ones outside the door that can make their way inside. Other than that the place is awesome.
