Super house and staff. Perfect place to relax or party!
Skylark Villa is a wonderful beautiful house to stay with friends and family. The staff is top notch as is their service. Chef prepares wonderful meals and it is close to several wonderful beaches but it is hard to leave the pool onsite. Have been coming back for years.
This home is special in several respects- 1) the layout- gorgeous views and pool 2) open to the outdoors from every angle 3) comfortable furnishings and beds.
What truly makes this home unique is the staff- Howard takes care of the property and anything needed, Sonia cooks amazing meals and Caron keeps the place immaculate, laundry clean and sets a beautiful dinner table! You will feel like royalty.
We chose to hire Mr. Johnson for the week to drive us to the beach, dinner and outings to Dunn Falls. He even arranged a boating excursion for 5 of us. Note that in Jamaica they drive on the opposite Side of the road from the United States, so if you are driving yourself it requires some skill!
We traveled with our 6 person extended family. Several days we simply relaxed at the pool and enjoyed the house. Other days we spent at a nearby beach - Doctors Cave where you can rent chairs, umbrellas and have an excellent lunch and cocktails on the beach!
A memorable week relaxing with the family and we highly recommend this property!
I cannot express how satisfied and blessed we were to spend our time here while in Jamaica. It was perfect for our family of 8. I was apprehensive at first about having the staff, but oh what a joy it turned out to be! These people were
fabulous and to come home with no dirty clothes was amazing! The location was great, and we never once felt unsafe at any time. We loved eating by candlelight on the beautiful veranda. The pool and hot tub are fabulous! We also loved being able to play miniature golf and volleyball and use the beach at Half Moon. And using Alberto,the recommended driver, is a must! He was so very helpful, and his price is very fair. He will take you wherever you want to go, multiple times a day if needed. We have traveled many wonderful places (such as HI) as a family and this is the only place I have said “I will be back!” Thank you also to Oliver, the house owner, who made sure we were satisfied and checked in on us. Cannot wait to go back again one day!!
My new home!!!!
I have never been to a more beautiful place. We got to the house, the staff greets you and from then on, you do not lift a finger. Ms. Sonia takes u shopping to prepare meals like "top chief ". Howard let's you know, anything you need let him know and it will get done. Ms Carron made sure our rooms were clean, clothes were iron and anything else we can think of she was there to help us. This place is priceless, I will be coming back every year.
The best vacation!
9 of my family members came to Jamaica to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We had 6 adults and 3 kids. The accommodations could not have been better. I'm a picky traveler and I really don't have anything that I would have changed. We enjoyed ourselves so much at the house that I only left twice in 7 days and that was to go to the beach. The staff is sooooo incredible. When we arrived Howard served up amazing rum punch and a smoothie for our son. Sonia cooked fantastic local dishes, but will work with you on whatever you want. The first day she already had some food in the house and then day 2 a few people went with her to the grocery store to stock up for the whole week. We spent one afternoon at the very lovely Half Moon Bay resort and another at the beach club. We hired Mr. Johnson for the week to drive us around since we had so many people. He took all the boys to Dunn's River Falls one morning and was terrific. The pool has been recently redone and is as beautiful as the pictures. There are 3 Bedrooms with king beds and one with 2 queens. Even though they aren't all shown in the pictures, each is equally beautiful. And all the bathrooms are well appointed. Karen - the housekeeper - will do your laundry every day and have it folded on your bed by the afternoon. All the staff had an amazing talent of keeping things running smoothly and clean, but never being in your way or intrusive. They were truly lovely. I hope to come back to this amazing spot soon.
Beaches and golf (3 championship courses) are nearby. Tennis, riding, sailing, shopping and water sports are nearby.
