  • Amazing views, Comfortable and So much more!

    "Thank you Jag and of course Miss Daisy. We instantly felt at home in your apartment. You totally under estimated the view with your photos. We spent every morning enjoying a cup of coffee while looking at the ocean. We went to sleep with sounds of the waves and nature almost every night. A short walk down to the pool or the beach made the amenities better than any resort. We snorkeled right off the beach. Our daughter made fast friends with kids within the community and has life long memories. We did as well. By renting this unit you have the opportunity to not only enjoy the island but also the amazing people ~ who are not only fun but so welcoming. We can not say enough good things about our stay. Your place is very comfortable, we worried about the white furniture and pottery with our 5 year old but she enjoyed your art and I hope you enjoyed the snowman she made for you. Please extend our thanks to Miss Daisy again. She took care of us and cleaned up after our many trips to and from the beach/pool. Thank you for arranging for groceries in advance. I wish I researched what groceries to buy as I am positive Miss Daisies Pumpkin Soup and Red Bean soup would have surpassed any restaurant as her Jerk Chicken. Richard was our local driver who took us our on a few trips into town. We found many restaurants provide transportation to and from Santa Maria - so that was a great tip. Tips for others: Closest restaurants - Walking distance at Hermosa Cove there is a restaurant Christopher's - food was ok - the view and atmosphere AMAZING. Tracks and Records a sports pub and shopping village is about a 5 minute walk. (sidewalks are not like Canada/US so be sure to walk facing traffic) Pineapple Craft Village is across the street. Be prepared for negotiating and saying no thank you. Recommend for groceries - Progressive foods - prices are a little higher but everything is there. For produce - ask Miss Daisy to see if someone can get for you or go to the market Best Italian, pizzas, pasta, great red wine - Cafe DaVinci within Island Village Best authentic experience - Dave's Lobster Shack - be sure to have cash and see the sizes of Lobsters that are available"

  • 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."

Anyone looking for an incredible retreat this home offers it all. All the feeling of an all inclusive but with the privacy and peacefulness of home.
