  • 3 weeks at a lovely spot - ideal if you drive

    "I spent 3 weeks at the Almond Tree Villa (main house) Dec 2016-Jan 2017. The Villa is a 5min drive from Ochi Town - perfect for those wanting to be in the mix of things but who also want to retreat to living like a local in a nice residential area. Perfect hub for those travelling around the island – 90 mins to Mobay, Portmore or Portland, 45 mins to Linstead, 60mins to Spanish Town, just under 2 hrs to Kingston. I made regular journeys to these places and back within a day which was a big plus. In terms of transportation, the White River turning leads you to the roads up to the villa also leads to a well established community & therefore there are taxi's every few minutes for those not driving. As long as you are prepared to walk out to the main road (a 5 min walk). Personally I drove, as did quite a few of the other guests - there is ample parking at the property and it makes getting around very easy. Highly recommended especially if you are used to driving a left hand drive. You will save lots of money by driving. The rooms are spacious with all amenities as listed and the main house was perfect for our needs, I would definitely stay at the property again. There were a few initial hiccups which were mainly to do with the lack of information on arrival and cleaning/presentation of facilities I reached out to the owner Neil and like always he resolved all issues within a day or so - quite typical of his communication even before I arrived at the Villa - always helpful and willing to rectify any issues., the perfect owner. A few things to note: Cost of Transportation. We hired the service of Junior as recommended by Neil to get us from Montego Bay to Ocho Rios. The cost of this was approx. $70US! Please note there are much more affordable options to get from the airport to the villa - you can pre book/pay online many services which will cost 30-50% less (like for like) however what you may not get is Junior's wit, charm and insight into the villa and advice on local activities etc. So in the end we were happy to pay the $70US but there are cheaper options. - At least 60% of the time there was no hot water when showering, not uncommon in the Caribbean but for a guesthouse something that can be easily solved. - We used the washing machine service 3 times and 2 of those 3 times there was either no soap powder or fabric softener which should come as part of the service. All in all it was a great stay, I would be happy to return."

  • Clean and comfortable

    "The apartment was as described, the owner was very responsive and helpful in providing us with reliable local drivers - she even called the airport transfer companies to ensure we had no issues with the transportation we booked. Beautiful view from apartment. Mahogany beach was small and perfect for us as we have young kids and my husband and I were able to relax. Walkable distance into town but not 5 mins. Enjoyed the nearby local restaurants which offer very good food at extremely affordable . Would have appreciated spared linen as had little kid and spare additional toilet supplies - we stayed over the new year period so maybe that had an impact on the housekeeper's availability. We would stay there again."

  • A Piece of Heaven in Jamaica

    "ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR! The villa is immaculate! The STAFF IS THE BEST PART! They make you feel at home! We are definitely coming back to our little piece of heaven in Jamaica. My husband and I travel a lot and our last tropical trip was an over water bungalow in French Polynesia. We thought we would never be able to top that...WRONG! This is your own little paradise all to yourself!"

  • Amazingly beautiful!

    "I truly enjoyed the privacy of the villa. The staff was phenomenal. The chef food was delicious. Christ Sandra, Tasha and Nicole were outstanding. We felt as though we were with family. The service was professional and the cleanliness was impeccable. I'll be booking again soon as everyone is asking when are we going back."
