Our stay was good

  • 5 of 5
The villa is ok. While choosing this property as our rental we did know that we aren't going to a 5 star hotel and our expectations were relevant to the price. We rented the entire villa. I found that some rooms were a lot nicer than others with updated furniture and better decorating, but again we weren't really there for the decor. One thing I cannot stand is dirty linen! and this place had GREAT FRESH linen! The washing machine was a great convenience also. The house overall is fairly clean....I have a 1 year old who just started walking so I thought the floors where not to my standard so I swept and wiped them and we were good to go. The kitchen was reasonably stocked, the oven would not light with the ignition button so we have to light to manually, my dad thought it was very unsafe for his children and grandchild but we only used it a couple times and managed. I would recommend getting that fixed. The bathroom was a bit dated but was functional. The outside area is well maintained, again the furniture is dated but otherwise very clean and comfortable. The pictures and description match the actual villa. The beach is quite a hike(if you have a toddler in tow) so we drove. But lots of my family members walked. It’s a very nice beach. The restaurant on the beach is ok(more tourist foods than authentic Jamaican food). I'm not giving this villa a 5 star hotel rating but rather a 5 star based on the advertising, my stay and expectations. I’m sure if the furniture and decor was updated, the price would also change. So i would rather save a few dollars and have the older furniture. I would probably stay at this villa again. I would get the king size room with its own bathroom(this bathroom was updated).

Truely our home away from from home

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Villa Serenity. This was the best way to visit Jamaica. The house and pool are clean and well cared for. Millicent and Lincoln are wonderful people who treated us like family. They took care of us, helping us find whatever we needed or wanted during our stay, yet did not hover. They gave reviews and recommendations that were always spot on.
The accomdations were exactly as we expected, or better. All of our needs were anticipated and addressed.
The private beach is a short walk away and includes a restaurant and bar. The staff were friendly and personable. They were very accomodating of our food allergies. The salon at the beach was personable and the prices were very reasonable compared to other locations. The gift shop was slightly high, but they did not push and harrass as you can get in some of the shopping areas. The lifeguards and security were friendly and outgoing.

I am very glad we chose to stay here and not in a resort. This was my 3rd visit to Jamaica, but the first time I got to see more than the tourist traps. We were able to meet people and learn more about the culture and the land than before. Definitely hope to return to Jamaica, and Villa Serenity, again soon!

Thank you for making our family vacation pleasant and smooth.

If I had one suggestion, it would be for more knives in the kitchen. However, it is not a complaint, just the one thing I missed from home because the local produce is wonderful to work with and I did a lot of cooking during our visit. We only ate out for 4 meals during our entire week long stay, otherwise it was 3 squares at the house each day.

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, mother-in law and I flew from London, UK to Jamaica in February 2012. We stayed at villa Serenity and really enjoyed it. We liked the following about the villa:

• The villa is located in the gated estate, really spacious, has an amazing tropical garden and a good-size swimming pool
• The beach is very close and is really good – white sand with a good coral reef a couple of meters away in the water
• Two 5-star hotels right next to the estate - you can buy a day/nigh pass into any of them
• Very close to Dunn’s river and other famous tourist amenities
• 10 minutes by car to Ocho Rios - great shopping – everything from local food/shops/market/banks to duty free designer and jewellery shops
• Very friendly and helpful owners - Millicent is a great host

I would highly recommend the villa Serenity to anyone, families or couples!

Villa Serenity - March 2012

  • 5 of 5
Millicent picked us up the airport and it was a great drive to the villa. The perfect opportunity to do some sightseeing. Millicent provided us with a phone with her number and graciously drove us to town to get supplies, and the bank is conveniently located next door. Ron the caretaker was there when we arrived and was only a call away the entire week. It was really nice having Ron right there he made you feel safe but at the same time he made sure to give you your privacy. He's a great guy. The linens and towels were all clean and fresh and having the washing machine was a nice bonus you don't need to pack so much. The pool is nice and clean and refreshing and Ron keeps it to perfection. A short walk to the beach which is beautiful, The beach club makes a rum drink the dirty banana, it's a must try, yummy. The food (fresh lobster) is fantastic, the staff are very friendly. All the locals we met were very upbeat and friendly people. Looking for a boat ride, fishing etc look up Captain Morgan at the beach.
Scothies Jerk House just outside gated community. You have to try the pork and festival. Unbelievable the flavour!! We had a fantastic time at Villa Serenity. Now I have to start working on the savings account so I can plan my return to visit my new found friends. Thanks Millicent you were fanastic.

Perfect vacation home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Villa Serenity was the perfect vacation rental for me and my 3 children. We rented 2 rooms with bathrooms and the rate was excellent. The villa had everything listed in the ad: a/c, hot water, internet, cable TV, airport pickup and drop off, babysitter, and all the rest. The pool was great the kids spent hours swimming. The best feature was the private beach for residents and it was an easy stroll from the villa. The beach was beautiful with a full restaurant and bar. The rest rooms were fully updated with beautiful mosaic tiles and wood accents. The villa was very clean and the yard was large with a lot of fruit trees. We visited Dolphin Cove and the 2 older kids had fun swimming with and kissing the dolphins. We tried the jerk chicken and pork from the jerk restaurant that was close by. I would recommend this villa to all my family and friends. The hosts were the best and the baby sitter helped a lot with my 3 year old. The only thing I didn’t like was that the trip was too short and my husband missed a beautiful vacation.
