Why George Lindsay chose White House
I wanted to have a place where I could share with family, friends and loved ones where they would be able to press the reset button and be one with nature.

Paradise by the sea
Villa Gilgal is an exceptional vacation home. The house itself is beautiful, with wonderful details like high-end shampoo, conditioner, body wash in each bathroom and plenty of fluffy bath and beach towels. The pool is great for adults and kids, with pool toys, waterfalls a hot tub and a swim up bar for smoothies and drinks. Off the back patio is the sea, where you can snorkel to see coral and fish. But the best part of all is the wonderful staff. Chef Dave will make you amazing Jamaican food and all you do is buy groceries - fresh fish and lobsters caught out back by local fishermen too. They will take you to town for shopping and groceries, arrange a car to see the attractions, and generally make sure everything you might want is there for you. Junior makes some amazing rum punch and blender drinks. The house is located on the south coast, which is about 2 hours from Montego Bay airport (road is in the process of being widened and repaved now) but it’s peaceful and not commercial there. We love the setting. Nearby you can see YS Falls, the Pelican Bar, and the Appleton Rum distillery. We never left the house some days - so relaxing and fun to swim and enjoy the sun.
If there was such a thing as six stars this villa would get it!
As a custom home builder it was so nice to find such a well thought out vacation villa/rental. This property is truly set up to accommodate large and small parties. From the outdoor pool, cabana bath, strategically placed outdoor showers, multiple outdoor areas to enjoy the spectacular view to the outdoor kitchen that is tucked away, the design of this property was truly impressive. The design and decor of the home itself was also perfect.
The staff that took care of us were top notch in every regard. Chef Sasha sat down with us to coordinate the menu of our preferred meals and go shopping with us to get our culinary essentials. Her skills did not disappoint. Every meal was delicious. O'Neill made sure the outdoor areas of the property were immaculate. Debbie Anne went above and beyond to make sure our 20th year wedding anniversary was perfect from the special decorations to the music playlist she prepared. Junior (JR) answered all of our questions, helped us understand all the nuances of the property and ensured our excursions went off without a hitch from preparation to execution.
The true thoughtfulness of each of these individuals left a lasting impression on us. Now we understand why so many guests say they will return. Now we too can say that we truly look forward to planning our next trip to Villa Gilgal.
This is a beautiful property with views of the ocean and sunset that are truly one of a kind
My family of 4 had a wonderful vacation at the beautiful Villa GilGal! The staff is warm and helpful from the moment you arrive, and they went out of their way to make sure that my son, who has autism, was always happy and had what he needed. When there was wine at dinner for the adults, Germaine made sure there was also a chilled bottle of sprite for my son! Members of my family all have very different diets and restrictions, and every single one of them was anticipated and accommodated. The best thing I can say is that a day after we got home, we reserved the property for the same time next year! I have never done that with another vacation before!
Thank you for your feedback! We are very pleased that you and your family had a wonderful vacation with us. We are also happy that our team was able to take care of your son’s special needs and ensure that he was always happy.
We are very excited that you have already rebooked your stay for this year and we are very much looking forward to seeing you soon.
Simply Paradise - Perfected
There are really no words to describe Villa GilGal. If you try and put words to this you would have to start with the staff. Germaine - our butler Caring, attentive, always has a smile and takes care of your every need. Junior, the caretaker keeps the whole operation running like a well oiled machine, whatever you need Junior will figure out a way to get it done. Oneil, keeps the grounds looking beautiful, Chef Dave, 3 meals a day plus snacks and everything was fresh, great presentation, and OMG SOOOOO Delicious. Sasha, a women of all trades, house keeper, cook, and just and absolute pleasure to be around. George and Tina, the owner and administrator were quick to return emails and attentive to our every need. Communication was really great
The pictures do not do the Villa justice it is so much prettier, the hardscapes and ocean entry and just gorgeous, house is well maintained, extremely clean and very comfortable. The pool is an absolute gem with the hot tub and swim up bar. If I could give this 6 stars I would it was perfect
Amazing property and staff. Highly recommended and will visit again.
Exceeded my expectations
We stayed at the villa for 3 nights and hosted out wedding there. Our guests are still talking about how exquisite the location was. The team were wonderful in supporting us through the wedding, even when vendors cancelled last minute and ensuring that we had a pleasant and relaxing stay on the days before and after the wedding. Thank you everyone
