Some vacations are more like "trips," with lots of duties, chores and bustling about. I'm happy to say that three generations of us spent Christmas week at Datura, where the staff made sure we were on a relaxing vacation.
From the moment we met Chisholm at the airport until 7 nights later when he dropped us back there, we were happy and relaxed. Chisholm, Shereen, Henry, Carol and Opie made sure of that. They asked us what we wanted and then made it happen. They were also very responsive when we had specific requests regarding meals, meal times, etc.
The house and grounds are tidy, comfortable and beautiful. Datura is also big enough that everyone was able to find a spot to relax or play. The kids loved being able to run all around the flora and fauna playing imaginary games. The adults were able to find sunny or shady spots for reading, napping and relaxing. (Over 5 books were read, so that's a measure of the relaxing going on.)
The staff also made sure our Christmas in Jamaica was special, making us a delicious lobster meal, as well as a great Jamaican punch drink, sorrel. We ate out Christmas Eve at Round Hill (posh resort 10 minutes away) and Shereen's cooking was better! For Boxing Day, Chisholm took us on a short road-trip (1 hour, 15 minutes) to Negril to a calm and lovely beach.
The listing was accurate. The floor plan was especially helpful. The owner/rental agent is very responsive and was available by phone or email during our stay. The house's WiFi worked very well. Although the four adults didn't watch TV, there was cable TV, which the two children with us loved.
Five of the six of our party had never been to Jamaica before, but all six of us will be returning! I would (and already have) recommend this property to friends and relatives.
