Perfect Safe location , very clean home . House keeper made the most amazing food and driver really went out of his way to make my 1st trip to jamicia amazing ! Pool and gym on site was a major plus !
My family and I came in from New York, and could not have picked a better place to stay. Everything was nice, neat, clean and cool. This 3 bedroom house in a quiet gated community had enough room for my entire family; and the pool which was only less than 1 minute walking distance gave us a nice place to relax. The amenities in the unit were great and everything worked properly. The private beach was a surprise, and very relaxing. But one would need a car to access the beach as it is about a 2 minute drive down the main road. I would recommend this unit!
I stayed here for one relaxing and rejuvenating week in February. The weather was clear blue skies and breezy- just perfect- even with the occasional shower.
Richmond estate is a home from home and the house has everything you need in the way of home comforts. The house keepers kept the place really clean and tidy during my stay and even cooked for us a couple of nights for a small charge.
The pool was just amazing and the pool table, table tennis and big screen tv in the clubhouse a really good touch. The pool was never busy and quite often I had it all to myself!
Ocho Rios is not far by local bus or taxi, which you can flag down on the main road if you don't want to drive. You can also order in food from a variety of restaurants.
There is a private beach club just for Richmond estate residents a 5 bus ride away and it's pure bliss!
If you want a true Jamaican experience rather than hiding away in an all-inclusive, then I'd wholeheartedly recommend this place.
The property was clean & had all the amenities necessary. The bedrooms were good sizes as were the bathrooms.
An extra touch was having the house maids to cook our meals (good authentic Jamaican dishes may I add).
The pool area is right next door to the house which was also very convenient. It was well maintained and clean. Pool chairs were always available & clean.
The grounds within Richmond Estate are well kept & preened.
The indoor/outdoor gym was an absolute delight, and working out as dusk approached made my work out even better!
The estate is guarded by 24 hour security so safety was never an issue. The area itself is very quiet so if you are looking for a peaceful place - then this is definitely it!
Ochi is a short 10-15min drive away or you can jump on the bus outside the estate for $140 JD.
Its local enough for all the usual tourist attractions but far enough from the hustle & bustle.
Margaritaville & Amnesia are good nights out in Ochi throughout the week.
The only request I would have is that wifi should be made available throughout the property, however this is not a huge problem as the signal is strongest in the kitchen and living area.
I shall be returning! : )

I loved staying here; the villa was the perfect size for our party of 7 and the on-site pool was literally seconds away from our front door. Cooking and housekeeping were included in our rental which really made things easy for us - I also made regular use of the on-site gym about 2 minutes walk away within the gated estate. The grounds are kept in impeccably good condition and Ocho Rios is 15 mins away by car, very quick and easy to get to. We also loved the estate's private beach, about 5 mins away by car, 10 on foot and definitely worth the journey when so many beaches nearby charge an entry fee.
I would 100% stay here again and am already planning my next trip!
