Myself and a group of family and friends stayed at the villa for 2 weeks. On arrival Maurice the care taker was their to show us around and give us the run down. He also took us to a nearby place to eat as we arrived so late a didnt know where to go. Maurice assisted us with anything that we needed at any time and was always pleasant to be around. The cleaner was also lovely and did everything that needed to be done. The property owner Alvin checked in to make sure everythig was running smoothely. The location of the property is ser next door to hotel Riu and of close proximity to both the beaches and town. All the tourist attraction were minutes away from the property and easy to get too. Couldnt of asked for a better place to be honest!

“a wonderful option”
Reviewed 3 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Renting this villa just outside of Ocha Rios was one of the best things we did on this trip.The villa is well maintained and equipped with everything you could possibly need and if there is something you need, just ask Maurice the caretaker. For the price per night, we could not have stayed at any hotel on the island for this rate, and the privacy is a huge plus. From the swimming pool, to the wonderful courtyard off the front of the house, we spent our time enjoying each others company and it was a great base for sightseeing, just a quick trip to town. We even had a few friends over for dinner and it was no problem.

Liked best: not a hotel
Liked least: the view of RIU hotel, but when they buy what used to be a beautiful stretch of the beach, I suppose you have to ignore it.

“Family reunion ”

person found this review helpful

We rented the villa for a family reunion January 12th-19th 2015. Overall we were pleased with our experience. More lighting needed in the bathroom and the living room. A umbrella would have been useful for shade around the pool. The staff did a great job in making us feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend this villa to friends

I spoke to this lady on a number of occasions to make sure she was happy she explained that she was unhappy with the cost of the air port pick up, as she come on boxing day I told her clearly that I have nothing to do with the cost as it is totally independent contract.

Because she was unhappy I decided to give her some money back out of my own pocket the reward I got from this, is she got her whole family to write a bad review

I explained the trasportation price so she was aware before hand so she could have made her own arrangements, but insisted that I make the arrangements I told her that they are going to charge her a lot as it is Boxing day a national holiday.

She seemed to blame me even through I explained clearly to her that I receive no money from the transfers if she can find a better rate else where I would be happy for her to use that service.

I explained to her that if a guest requires an airport pickup I can only arrange it with a reputable company which I did.

She insisted that it is my fault that they charged her so much on Boxing Day even through she accepted that I have no control over the cost on a national holiday.

This lady also complained that she also her guests were being bitten by mosquitos.

When I explain her complaints to our staff they told me that these guests where told not to leave the doors open as there are 3 doors where you can enter the main villa if somebody leaves the doors open things will come in as it is a topical country.

Maurice explained this to this lady also her guests more than once. There was a lot of them so they came and went as they please

He told me that he can only advise guests the guests can do as they please also the guest can bring who they wish to the villa which I agree with.

Our staff can only advise but they can not tell guest what to do unless it is a life and death situation.

The lady was very angry about our Housekeeper Natalie was not working on the Christmas weekend.

Our cleaner has 3 children she is entitled Boxing Day off she was back there the very next day.

In this business it is impossible to please everybody even through you give it your best shot.


I have explained to her that she would have trouble to find somewhere as nice as our villa for the cost that she has paid, she agreed with me while she was there.

I kept in constant contact with her and at know time did she indicate that she was unhappy except for the pool sharing with the studio and our double bedrooms

I explained that they could work out a routine but the other people stopped using the pool so she also her guests had exclusive use of the pool.

I strongly be leave that in this business you can not please every one because everybody is different you can only make sure that they are safe first and for most, also that they do not lose anything, the place is clean through out also comfortable plus the staff are pleasant also polite and helpful.

I have travelled around the world and stayed in some fantastic places I have tried my best to my budget to produce a decent away from home where guests feel safe also comfortable in our surroundings which most people who have resided with us have found our villa to be very good.

We are proud to say that we have a lot of returning guests

Kindest Regards

villa and grounds beautiful and well maintained. The staff are very helpful but respect your privacy,however unlucky enough to be in the master bedroom with faulty AC over last 4 nights so didn't sleep well but have to say Morris tried his best to get it repaired. Had a brilliant family party here an would recommend it.
Would have liked parasol for some shade when having a pool day.
