Emerald like a jewel

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Emerald Estate with my brother back in August 2015. It was great. The property is clean and welcoming. The houskeeper had a meal waiting for us and the fridge had drinks to. Easy to find from the airport and I liked the safe feeling knowing the 24 hour security where there. The swimming pool is about 20 steps away from the apartment. It was great to have wifi and i just loved the water despener machine. The access to the back garden was good to hang out the washing. The houskeeper was helpful and very very friendly. I would recommend this villa and look forward to my next trip in the near future. Pandora of the UK

paradise

  • 5 of 5

I spent an amazing ime at emeralds, this is my 2nd visit there and wil return again again , just love it there, the villa is the perfect place to stay and enjoy living like a local. The property is very clean and spacious, with a cosy intimate comfortable feel to it, fully equipped to accommodate all your needs, feels very much like home from home.

Karen the house keeper is very friendly and makes you feel very welcome if you don't feel like cooking and want to try the real jamaica cooking Karen is more than happy to cook for you for a small fee nothing is too much trouble.

Thank you Karen really appreciate your visits.

Thete is plenty to do locally with several beaches close by. If you get board you can always take a 15min journey into ocho rios which is a lively town with plenty to do.

I have recommended this villa to friends and family.

The owner Jennifer is also available on the phone to answer to any questions.

Thanks Jennifer keep up the good work.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

I was pleasantly surprised with the property, it was much nicer than the write up, we were met by the house keeper Karen, who was very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for her.

The property had everything you could possible want and more to accommodate your needs, it is a very spacious 2 bedroom property with all the facilities that you would have at home, this made you feel like you were not missing out on any creature comforts, Karen attended daily to keep on top of the high standard of cleanliness.

The location of the property was in a fabulous location, only 8km from Ocho rios, where you have all the night life, bars and restaurants which are easily accessible. you also have several local beaches that you can go to if you don't want to travel too far.

I had a fabulous time there, and loved it so much that I didn't want to leave, I have told all my friends and family about it and I will definitely return again.

Thank you for an excellent stay.

Map

Car: recommended

The Villa location is ideal, as it lies just off the main highway from Ocho Rios to Portland. and is surrounded by a number of upscale homes. It is located of the main road at Huddersfield in the parish of St. Mary, about 15 minutes ride from the Tourist capital of Ocho Rios, and about 5 minutes walk to the small town called 'Stewart Town' further along you have the Boscobel Beach Hotel.

When you leave the security gate asked the security guards especially Donovan he has been there for the last five years he will direct you any where (Past clients have been happy with Donovan's helpfulness & Knowledge of the area). There is a local beach next to the local gas station called the Cool Oasis ask the staff they are friendly and will direct you to the beach. There are about 4 more beaches in the area depending where you want to go. & which direction ‘Reggae Beach’ is situated about 12 mins from the villa not far from ‘White River.
