About Mel Chambers
Melvin Chambers is the child of Jamaican father and Cuban mother. Raised in Jamaica, he left as a young adult to make a better life for himself and his family. He gained experience in the automotive industry in Europe and later Canada, then settled in America for 15 years as a real estate professional. It was by acquiring properties, and managing business operations in New York, USA that Melvin sharpened his expertise in the areas of commerce enhancement, client relations, and real estate development and management. Although immensely successful in New York, Melvin longed for the natural, free-flowing climate of home. After traveling back and forth for many years, Melvin sold many of his properties in New York to invest in properties in Jamaica; and he moved back to Jamaica for good in 1988, residing on the estate he purchased in 1986, Windfall Villas. In 2004, he sent for his son Mel to learn the real estate business and help manage the beautiful estate of Windfall Villas. Mel Chambers is the property manager and contract advisor of Windfall Cottages and a host of other properties in Jamaica.

A beautiful weeks stay at Windfall Villa. Would highly recommend!
We are 3, 60+ couples who just finished a wonderful weeks stay at this beautiful villa. We knew we didn't want to stay at large resort for our first trip to Jamaica, and this fit our needs perfectly. The home is on a beautiful setting, million dollar view, plenty of space to spread out, pool was cool and refreshing, covered patio/bar area with charcoal grill was our idea of paradise. Our host Mel and housekeeper, Monique, were wonderful hosts, always checking in on us daily and making sure we had everything we needed. Mel corresponded with us prior to our trip and picked us up at the airport, took us to a traditional Jamaican restaurant along with a stop at grocery store. He even guided us with food choices as one of our party has dietary needs which was so helpful being in a strange country. Throughout the week, he offered other restaurant choices, and answered lots of questions about the island and culture. It was great to have this added service of driving us wherever we wanted to go on the island, rather than renting a car or calling a taxi. We enjoy cooking our own meals and the large kitchen is well equipped for the quick meals we prepared. Monique stopped by daily with her sweet disposition to clean up after us, although we didn't always have things for her to do. We did hire her to cook 2 wonderful dinners during our stay, she is an amazing cook and we enjoyed sampling the Jamaican cuisine. I would highly recommend this if you like trying different foods. This rental is safe, secure and is everything that is represented online. You will not be disappointed. The week just went too fast. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks Mel and Monique for a great week!!
Thank you for everything. It was a pleasure having you stay with us at Windfall Villas. I wish you guys could have stayed longer instead of having to head back to the cold weather. You guys were great guests. If you are ever in jamaica again, please give me a call.
A fabulous spot with amazing views!
Mel took care of everything and was extremely quick with his correspondence prior to arrival. The villa was immaculate, the pool, the grounds, along with the super comfy beds, made our stay. We arranged for Monique to make us lunch and dinner on our first day and we were most impressed with the quality of food, not to mention, the amount!
I would highly recommend Mel's place for groups, or families wanting a great place to chill out and enjoy the views! And thanks for taking us to see some live music Mel!
Thanks again for everything. You guys were great guests.
Everything you would expect from the amazing reviews and description
I'm always skeptical of places that have few reviews and they are all five stars. I really dug in to make sure before booking that I wasn't getting scammed where maybe the view was great but they were next to a landfill, or a loud construction zone, etc. This place is 100% accurate as promised and over-delivered. We were a group of five. Two gay couples and a friend.
Mel picked us up from the airport directly. He was outside of the airport where things are kinda crazy combing through people to find me rather than forcing me to meet him somewhere. To me, that was huge when I'm in a strange environment and there is hundreds of locals trying to take advantage of tourist's money. The personal service continued from there. On the ride to the villa he answered any questions we had and gave us recommendations. He also stopped at a grocery store and helped us with navigating the check out and advised me the best way to pay to avoid high exchange rates. Mel and his housekeeper Monique were extremely accessible, but never intruding. Monique often would walk over with a charming smile and just say hi and ask how we were doing, but I could tell she was checking to find an opportune time to tidy up after us. Mel also found times to just check in to see that we didn't need anything, and was also available via the phone he provides you to call him during your stay.
The view is even better in person than the pictures. The WiFi, A/C, TV, Fridge, and other promised amenities were all in working order.
Quick recommendations to improve your stay: If you have kids or a group I recommend bringing board games. If you have a Wii at home you could maybe bring some of the games as I saw a console but never tried it (ask Mel). Also bring or purchase a nice pool float if you like to do that. It's an amazing pool with a great view but the floats provided are a bit small. If you plan to buy booze to drink while there, the Duty Free in the airport actually is similar in price to the grocery store, but has a better selection of brands that you may recognize. We waited until the grocery store and I regret it. I hope this review helps you and if you decide to stay here I'm certain you will enjoy it!
Thanks again for everything.
Perfect for our family trip to paradise. We loved everything.
I’m writing this on the morning of our final day in MoBay and it’s bittersweet! Mel’s house is great and it hurts to leave.
The house is far more spacious, relaxing, and well maintained than the pictures can capture. The views are breathtaking. There were 3 adults and 4 kids ages 18mos to 12 y/o in our party and we had more than enough room to spread out and relax.
We highly suggest hiring Monique to cook for you. She is an amazing cook and made us fantastic breakfast, packed lunch to go for our excursions) and welcomed us back from the days adventure with a home cooked Jamaica meal each night.
Monique is also the housekeeper and she’s so nice and sweet. The kids all love her and say they’ll miss the home cooked meals (we all will lol!). Everyday we came back to tidy rooms, hot meals, and fluffy beach towels ready for the next day.
You’ll have zero regrets about just getting groceries and focusing on relaxing during your trip (also we found that the restaurants in town generally have good food and but less than ok service).
All of the kids loved the pool and would have slept in it if allowed. The beach is near by and Mel’s available to drive you round trip pretty inexpensively in his van (all 6 of us plus a car seat fit comfortably).
All in all because of Windfall Villa, Mel the ultimate host, and Queen Monique we had a great time and a perfect vacation. Couldn’t have started a New Year in a better way.
Thanks for everything. It was a pleasure having you and your family stay at our place. Please say hello to everyone for me.
We loved staying at Windfall Villa. Mel and his staff were top-notch and treated us like family!!!
Having our own villa was such a nice change-of-pace from a crowded resort. We each had our own room with attached bathroom which was an added bonus. Monique would come in daily for clean up and dishes which made my job even easier. We also enjoyed having her cook for us one evening, for an additional fee. Having Mel as our own personal driver made getting around Jamaica so
Much better. Thank you, Mel and staff for a truly memorable Jamaican vacation!!!
Thank you for everything. I enjoyed having you stay with us at Windfall Villas. You came as strangers and left as friends.
R&R At Its Best
Our recent 7-day trip to Windfall Villa was wonderful. Our group of four have stayed at a few private villas in Jamaica in the past and found this property to be the best. The villa is very clean and had everything we needed and desired. The property is very private and beautiful. Mel was attentive to our needs and made sure that we were well taken care of. A bonus was Monique, she prepared fabulous meals and kept us supplied with all the amenities. Her smile and friendly personality was infectious. Thank you both for a great time!
If you are looking for a relaxing and peaceful vacation, I highly recommend Windfall Villa.
Thanks for everything. You guys were great guests. I'm looking forward to your next visit.
