One of the best vacations EVER!

Well we "JUST" returned from our 7 day trip to Hillcrest Villa - Jamaica. This was the first vacation in over 10 years where we could get"all our kids together at the same time...so I must say I was a little nervous as we rented a home in another island last fall and was so disappointed when we arrived.
So on this trip I did speak to some of the previous guests and also asked alot of questions from Stefano (and THANK YOU for being so patient with me Stefano!) He answered quickly all my questions.
We arrived on the 19th of March, Raymond the driver was waiting right outside as we were told. It was about a 40 min drive to the Villa...and once we arrived...well I would really have a hard time explaining. I can say...the pictures are EXACTLY as the Villa looks...but it is 100 times better in person! We met the rest of the family (staff)...Ms Carmen, Dell, Casanda and Winston. They made us feel comfortable immediately upon arrival!
This home is situated so well that with 8 of us there we felt like we could do just about anything alone...some of our kids might be playing pool..some snorkeling, some kayaking, some napping, some just chatting with Dell and Ms Carmen about the food and how to prepare it....
The water front was probably our most favorite place, the way they have the rocks to keep the area out front calm...we would sit for hours and just listen to the waves. The snorkeling right there around the rocks was awesome...the kayaking onto the reef and beyond was unbelievable...watching the fisherman each morning and the ships in the distance at night....
The meals were absolutely wonderful...we tried many of the authentic dishes and everyone was MORE then content and filled each meal..and we have some picky eaters!
The home itself is beautiful...the marble floors, high ceiliings, full spray showers...but even with the luxary it was very comfortable and after a few days you feel so relaxed and at home.
We thought we would be bored as we have a very active family - our kids are 17-22-29...and we were worried that not being at a all inclusive (as we've always done), might have them stir crazy after a couple days....we were SO WRONG! All of our kids had absolutely the time of their lives and could not stop saying it through the week...how wonderful it was.
Stefano...your home is gorgeous - thank you for sharing it with us.
Your family (staff) were so wonderful to our family - thank them all for us!
We hope to be back next year for sure
