"As first time travelers to Jamaica, we had a ton of questions and doubts with regard to the villa and the place in general. Karen (the owner) was absolutely wonderful, prompt, and courteous in answering the myriad of questions I had. She settled most of our doubts, etc. Would book her villa again without a second’s thought.
Once we arrived in Jamaica, we were met by the colorful Johnny, a reggae aficionado, who randomly belts out lines as well. Be forewarned that his van is not a Cadillac or even a Volkswagen bus. It is a miscolored utilitarian vehicle with ice cold air conditioning and gets you where you want to go without issues. He is an amazingly warm and friendly gentleman and full of tales, whose veracity should not be checked, lest its charm be lost. Johnny is a wonderful guide as well. Funnily, he knows everyone in Duncan’s bay. Rather, everyone knows Johnny
We were greeted by another wonderful person, Ms. Annette at the villa. To say she took care of us is an understatement. She cooked amazingly delicious healthy meals for us for the duration of the stay and helped us celebrate our Son’s 11th birthday making dishes he liked and also hanging up banners. She may appear serious and commanding, but she is neither.
The Villa was simply astounding. With windows and doors open, the warm Caribbean breeze will invade the house and envelop you in heavenly calm. Comfortable rooms, beautiful garden area with cradle like hammock hanging from huge Almond trees.
The beach, a mere two minutes’ walk, is absolutely stunning. Since we went off-season, we had the beach all to ourselves, save for a few locals who cannot be friendlier. Some sections of the water does have rocks, but once you find the sandy areas, it is nothing but soft silky white sand caressing your feet as the warm waves wash you.
Please carry a bit of cash with you (US Dollars accepted everywhere) as many places only take cash. If you have a choice between Duncans River Falls or Blue Hole, do the blue hole trip, it is an adventure getting there, but worth it! As far as costs, I think 30 dollars a day can comfortably feed a family of four, three delicious, well-balanced Ms. Annette meals a day. Even McDonalds cannot beat that.
If you even have a sliver of doubt. Cast it away and go to One Rhythm Villa. You will love it."
