“Perfection”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

My family of 10 wanted the "perfect" location for our reunion vacation, one that would allow for rest and relaxation while giving the kids the opportunity to be free to explore. Not only did Lansdowne offer this, it far exceeded our expectations and offered so much more. Simply stated, it was perfection!!! Nestled in the hills of Upton, Ocho Rios, our home away from home offered the perfect environment for us to get the R&R we wanted and the space and beauty and coolness of the property provided three young children the opportunity to take in the natural wonders of the tropical landscape without the discomfort and misery of the heat or pests. No air condition was necessary in the middle of the summer as it was always breezy and cool day and night. Furthermore, the distance to the town and local attractions was easy to get to on a day-to-day basis without feeling that we were too secluded. Traffic in the area is limited so it always felt safe and noise free. I can't say enough about this place, but it would be unsettling if I didn't mention the added bonus of Mrs. Christy, our very professional and friendly hostess, who took care to provide the best in service to our family. Not once did we feel as though we were in someone else's home. At all times, we were made to feel welcomed and at home. Thanks also to Mrs Bridgette for extending this opportunity to enjoy Jamaica to the fullest. From the onset, you made the process easy and worked to accommodate the needs of our large family. Without hesitation, we would return and would definitely recommend Lansdowne to extended family and friends wanting that "perfect" location for a family retreat. In fact, the pictures from our family trip has already done that for us.

“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our visit to Lansdowne was for a Family Reunion this past July. Our group included 5 Adults, 5 Teenagers and 1 Toddler. We stayed for approximately 9 nights/10 days.

Making our reservation was very simple once we were informed the Villa was available. We made two payments and were able to use PayPal. The owner of the home was very accommodating to the needs of our very large group and her response to communications is very quick.

With our reservation we were able to arrange transportation from Montego Bay airport to Lansdowne. This was the only time we used this driver (other then when our other family arrived the next day and when that same group left separately to depart Jamaica). We chose to not use this transportation because the prices were very high. Please be aware that you will need a car to go any and everywhere staying at Lansdowne. A cab stop is less than a mile in walking distance. It's a beautiful walk down a rough road but not hard at all if you enjoy walking. I advise using the cabs as much as you can, they are very affordable.

Lansdowne, itself is a beautiful property. Very quiet area. The noisiest part are the birds and mosquitoes. The house and property are very clean. The bathrooms do need several upgrades to the showers and sinks. The stove and refrigerator also need to be replaced, they are both not up to date. Beds and Linens were very comfortable. The property doesn't have air conditioning or a pool but there is a great breeze in the evening once the sun goes down. The villa has several fans on the upper floor but the bottom floor could use more. Days are very humid and hot (in July).

The staff at Lansdowne, Enid and AnnMarie are great ladies. Very professional, polite, punctual, and they truly treat you like you are at home. They are honest and willing to help as much as they can. I felt our comfort was their #1 concern and I can't tell you how important that was to my family and me. Enid manages Lansdowne very efficiently and AnnMarie assists her all the same. We hated to say goodbye.

Overall we enjoyed Lansdowne and would recommend the property to a family or large group who need a home away from home.

“Fabulous holiday in Ocho Rios”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed here in May 2014 for a family reunion and had one of our best times in Jamaica to date.

The villa was spacious enough for a family of 9 and the service provided by the housekeepers Enid and AnneMarie was simply marvellous and they were very friendly and professional, catering to our requests. Mealtimes were great and it was a treat to have such a splendid array of local food and fresh fruit with every meal. The villa was extremely clean and spotless with lots of natural light and comfortable.

The property itself is about10 mins drive to the nearest beach and set in luxurious tranquil grounds close to a Sandals resort and golf course. We felt safe here and would return in an instant. It was so relaxing and the highlight of our trip to Jamaica.

I would also like to say a big thank you to the property owner Bridgette who had everything arranged for us at short notice due to a last minute change in our plans. It was clear from our first correspondence that we would be well looked after and it really helped put us at ease prior to arrival.

I wholeheartedly recommend Lansdowne and have already recommended this to friends!
Thank you for making our trip wonderful.
