Native will always exceed all reasonable expectations, while offering some of the more reasonable prices. Native Villa is on a hillside overlooking one of the best hotels in Jamaica. The villa has a private swimming pool in a secure gated development of private villas and stately homes. Nestled on a hillside, with a breathtaking view of the turquoise Caribbean Sea, and natural sugar white sand beaches. The property is located on Jamaica's unspoiled South Coast, minutes away from natural world class beaches, renown for safe swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and fishing. A tropical paradise, it sits on an acre, with an abundance of exotic trees, flowering plants and colorful birds. The Culloden / White house area has a very rich history. Native Villa is staffed by a manager with hotel mgt. experience in the U.S.. All other key personnel are trained at hospitality schools.
Property is ideally suited for Nature lovers: The Whitehouse area more closely represents the traditional 1950's and 60's Jamaica than the highly commercialized resort area. An area where traditional values and attitudes abound. Relics of our heyday are still evident.
The environment is well preserved and therefore still retain its rustic charm and stateliness. The area is diverse and therefore is attractive to the sand, sea and sun market segment, the nature (green) and eco-tourist market segment, as well as the Caribbean/Jamaican diaspora.
The property manager worked for several years as a part time weekend night auditor/night manager for several small to mid-sized properties in the United States. He also took courses in Hotel and Motel management. He also traveled extensively as a business traveler staying in business class hotels in North, South and Central America, Europe, The Caribbean and The Pacific. All key personnel are trained at hospitality schools. The villa consists of 6 bed rooms all having their own bathrooms. A caretakers cottage is located on one side of the property and is always occupied by a staff member, who will attend to your needs 24 hours / day, 7 days per week. There is adequate parking for 3 cars or a medium sized tour bus.
My family of 5 stayed at this beautiful villa over Christmas break and had an amazing vacation! In addition to being right by the private beach (5 mins. driving), the village of Whitehouse, Sandals resort, it was close to many other beaches and tourist attractions. The villa itself was a great place to spend time. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable and the kitchen was fully stocked. The chef prepared excellent food and the house keeping staff kept the house spotless throughout our stay. The owner did everything to make us feel at home down to the most minute details and we had a fantastic trip. Thank you!!
Five of us females staying at Sierra LaMar for a week was wonderful.
We had privacy that you don't get at a resort. The villa is secluded which made it wonderful for us to enjoy the pool and be ourselves. We were very well taken care of by Byron who attended to all of our meals and shopping. Byron prepared the meals effortlessly. We enjoyed experiencing the Jamaican cuisine.
One fall back, there was no beach close by but we did take a day trip to Negril for beach and shopping. There is no tourist shopping in the town of Whitehouse and you would need transport to get there as the Villa is on a hilltop. We did an evening pass at Sandals in Whitehouse one evening. We had a great time.
Shawnette and Claudette were very pleasant and they kept the villa presentable for us.
Our transport for the whole time we were here, was by Daniel Lawrence Transportation and mostly driven by Jermaine. We always felt safe riding with them. You will need transport to get around because the touristy things are all at a distance. But, Daniel will be sure to take care of your transport need if you wish.
We felt like we were with family the whole time there and we miss them already. Garth was always available if we needed him for anything.
A group of 10 of us stayed at Sierra La Mar for 12 days, January /February 2011. We had the best vacation, feeling like we had our very own slice of paradise that we could call home. Garth was a great host, totally accomadating and very helpful during our stay. Byron the chef cooked up amazing lobster and many great meals, thank you Byron, we miss you! Shawnette and Claudette did a great job to ensure the villa was tidy, and Danny from Juta tours made sure that his men Michael & Jermaine took excellent care of all of our transportation needs, it felt like we had our own personal tour guides! We would highly recommend Sierra La Mar, its a wonderful change from the all inclusive vacation. The villa is large enough that you never felt like you were tripping over people. The beach was a short ride away, and it was like having your very own private beach. We saw locals swim up from diving for fish, with octopus and squid. Thank you Garth, for a wonderful vacation, we were very sad to leave, we feel like we have left our family behind!!!
For my first time to Jamaica I was very impressed with this property, Mr. Lee and his staff. I had a fabulous time, the property is absolutely beautiful. Mr. Lee is just the most hospitable and accomodating owner. Also the chef that we had on site was absolutely fabulous, I wanted to bring him home to cook for me :) Excellent Cooking Byron!!! I told everybody about you. I will definitely stay here again and again.
Thanks so much,
Our Jamaican vacation was the best and we do plan to make many repeat visits. I just cannot say enough good things about our stay in the villa and its proprietor, Garth. The villa was very clean and comfortable and easily accommodated my family of six. Garth was an angel and made sure that all my family's needs were met. I highly recommend this property to anyone who wants a relaxing vacation away from the hustle and bustle.
My wife and I were married on January 22, 2005, one of the coldest months in Chicago. Every year for our anniversary we take a trip. We usually drive somewhere and rent a cabin or villa. Last year we rented a villa up in Canada. It was beautiful, my wife loved it but she pleaded "next year, can we go someplace warm?"...So we chose Jamaica. Based on all of the great reviews and the description, Sierra La Mar seemed like the place to go. LIttle did we know it would exceed all of our expectations. This place is paradise.
Mr Lee and his staff did everything in their power to make our stay as comfortable as possible. My buddy Byron, the master chef , churned out meal after delicious meal with little effort. There are passion fruit growing wild on the property, my wife brought one in one day and asked what it was, 10 min later, Byron had prepared a drink using the fruit....Our driver Clinton made sure we got to our destinations safely and had plenty of laughs along the way. Colin, the grounds keeper, made sure the pool was clean everyday, and introduced us to fresh coconut water, mmm.
A great, great time. My wife and I, try to go to a different destination every year, but the staff at Sierra La Mar make it very difficult to not be repeat customers.
