About Karen Frohlich

I live in Siesta Key, Florida and spend months at a time at 'One Rhythm Villa' in Jamaica. Doing this, I feel good and at home...I am grateful..I always Love it when family and friends find their way for a visit...

Why Karen Frohlich chose Trelawny Parish

I especially favor this location because it is private, quiet and on the seaside.I Love the Sea. When I first came upon this area, it was an instant knowing for me that I would one day be at home here in Jamaica. That was almost 15 years ago. When I first saw the Sea, it was full of so many different shades of turquoise that I could not look away.... so I just sat in gratitude of the beauty surrounding me & took it all in.

What makes this villa unique

One Rhythm Villa opens up to the outside gardens and sitting areas, it is like having a flower garden inside. There is a gentle sea breeze that flows through the villa most all day. Jamaica gives me the feeling that I am always in Love.....I am blessed!

to me

Hello Karen!

Just wanted to write as I have been thinking about your home and community in Jamaica constantly since returning in the spring. The time spent there with Annette and Johnny will forever be in our hearts. Those two people are some of the best that we have ever had the pleasure of spending time with . Their gifts of connection and intuition in being with new people are really incredible. I can't imagine that there would be anyone who could fill Annettes's shoes as far as providing the level of insight, kind support and hospitality that she does.

Brian and I are dreaming about when we can come back! Trelawny is a most special community and the way of life and perspective of the folks that we have spent time with there have been an inspiration to us since we have come back. The trip really highlighted the blessings and shortcomings of our own life and community in such a powerful way. I only wish that we could travel back to Jamaica more often...

I can't wait to send an email with some dates that we would love to come back to your home. The next time we will bring some friends. I can't wait to share this community and your home with some friends or family.

Hope you are well. Thanks again for creating a portal to such a lovely community and culture for us. I could have never imagined that a vacation could have such an impact on our life!

Michelle (and Brian) Higginson

We could not have chosen a better location than One Rhythm Villa for our first trip to Jamaica! The exceptional meals prepared by Miss Annette and the attention to detail was very much appreciated by our family of 4. Miss Annette was very accommodating and flexible with our schedules with meal preparation. She welcomed us at the property, showed us around the Villa, brought us to the beach (which is only a minute walk) and introduced us to all of the vendors/locals on the beach. Miss Annette also welcomed us with a delicious meal. She prepared a perfect amount of food for our family for each meal, including local dishes and the national dish, with very little or no food left over, it was just so tasty! We appreciated Miss Annette's suggestions for local tours, and also appreciated coordinating our schedule and driving needs with our driver Andrew. Miss Annette also arranged a snorkeling tour along the reef which was pretty amazing!

Speaking of Andrew, we could not have asked for a better driver. He was safe, funny, a great tour guide and showed us many places to see the true Jamaica. We also appreciated his flexibility in our needs, his descriptions and explanations of buildings, history and the culture of Jamaica. He stopped to let us take pictures (something tour buses would not do), came shopping with us in Montego Bay, and made us all feel extremely comfortable as if we had known him long before this trip. Please be sure to ask him how to tell the difference between the male and female goats! This had our family roaring in laughter!

Our family enjoyed Glistening Waters (a must!), The Cave Tour, The Blue Hole, a Tubing Tour, snorkeling (as mentioned earlier), Margaritaville (the waterslide was under repair, so this was a bust). For the most part we used U.S. currency (we are Canadian), and would recommend to bring a lot of cash to pay for things. Although many times tours said they would take credit cards, we often ended up paying in cash as the internet/systems were 'down'. There is a bank within driving distance, and withdrawing (U.S. or Jamaican) money is an option.

Thank you Karen for sharing your beautiful Villa with us. Karen was extremely quick in replying to our emails and even called us to confirm a few things. We would definitely come back and recommend One Rhythm Villa to anyone considering experiencing Jamaica in true style. A beautiful country, beautiful people and a trip we will cherish forever!

Owner's Response: Krista Thank you for being with us at One Rhythm in Jamaica! So many times during your stay Ms Annette and Andrew would call me and tell me what a wonderful family you are.

One Rhythm Heaven

March 2nd 2018

Thank you Ms Annette for another spectacular vacation. It is always a pleasure to visit One Rhythm. We've been coming for a few years now and it always gets better. The services such as internet have even improved since last year. Makes working on vacation a breeze. My birthday was spent at the villa and Ms Annette made a fabulous dinner. She even put up birthday decorations. Very special! Lots of love to Karen for putting us up again, to Johnny our tour guide and especially Ms Annette. We will be back next year to our second home. Thank for sharing!

Royalty on a budget

  • 4 of 5

The villa is very cozy with easy access to beach. No views of the water. Master toilet doesn't flush & heard it's been like that for a long time. Bench on porch broken & almost threw me to the ground. It was missing a leg. 2 beach lounge chairs also broken that you have to pay about $2 to get someome to take to & from beach daily. Beach chairs, beach umbrella, cooler & thermos for drinks would have been nice. This villa is very clean & comes with the services of Ms. Anette who takes care of your every need & is an amazing cook as well. Will definitely be back. Just be better prepared.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this review. All the reviews are appreciated and help us fine tune an already lovely experience. There is a beach umbrella, a cooler and Lounge chairs for the beach. I will be sure the staff makes them available. I do like the idea of a thermos and will be sure to get some for the villa. There is no charge for taking lounge chairs on the beach. Perhaps it was a tip you gave the person?? The toilet in master bedroom just needs to have the handle held for a couple seconds. It works well. The bench has been removed from the patio. The staff driver, the housekeeper and myself want your Jamaican experience to be the best possible and we use these reviews to assist us in creating just that. Thank you.

What a paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had the trip of a lifetime! The villa is beautiful and so very peaceful. Though it did rain most of the time, Kemar helped us “chase away the rain” with a trip to Negril, Green Grettel Caves, Columbus Park, and Fort Charlotte. He didn’t rush us and helped our trip to be amazing. Of course the real star of the villa was Miss Annette, the maid/cook that lives in the villa as well. She made us feel so welcome and loved, even inviting us to church with her. I highly recommend One Rythem!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for this review. Yes Kemar (driver) truely enjoyed every moment with you as well. Ms Annette is absolutely the star of the show. She has the flexibility to accommodate the guests by either staying on the property or going to her family home. This is determined by the needs & desires of each guests. Many guests do enjoy going to local events with Ms Annette, they really get the feel for the Jamaican culture that way. Please do come back to Jamaica again soon.

Power outages, spotty Internet but great cooking!

  • 3 of 5

The 3 of us arrived in the afternoon to a villa that had been without power since early morning as the whole area was shut down for maintenance. We regained power just prior to 10pm. Thankfully Ms Annette, our housekeeper/cook had a sumptuous meal waiting for us. We were literally SPOILED by this woman's culinary skills to whip up an amazing meal whether it was lobster or soup and grilled sandwiches. I tried foods that I never had before and enjoyed them. A local couple stopped by the villa several times a week to sell veggies and fruits. Ms Annette made sure that the quality was good and the price was fair. Ms Sandra, the lady who covered days off for Ms Annette was a bright, cheery, smiling addition to our stay. She made sure that we were nicely fed and that we departed with clean clothing. A first for any Ja vacations! 12 for my friends 11 for me

The villa was 3 up from a gorgeous beach that abutted a small cluster of fishermen and crafters by Leroy's Bar. A storm did substantial damage to the beach but hopefully that has been addressed since our departure.

There was a "commissary" store a short walk from the villa in White Sands and they did offer delivery. We did travel to a local store also with Ms Annette to shop in addition to stopping enroute from Mobay at the Progressive store for our best prices and options. Be aware that by renting the villa you are responsible for providing your foods and drinks as well as paper products, soaps, spices, oils, and condiments which add up quickly. Ms Annette arranged for the lobsters via the fishermen which my friends said were delicious.

The 3 of us were quite comfortable sharing this 2 bdrm 2 bath villa. It would be unfair of me not to point out the cons of this rental. The roof leaked in several spots and the kitchen had an obvious prior repair that was not adequate. We mopped up rain there and in the living area. The spotty internet was annoying as was the very repetitive outages of the cable tv. I also found it odd that the spare blanket in my bedroom disappeared and the housekeeper had no answer to where it went to. She provided a replacement for me.

There were limited candles for the power outages yet a rechargeable flashlight and light bar had been supplied to the housekeeper who stays on property.

The owner, Karen, stayed in her new home next door but never made any attempt to communicate. The driver and cook seemed to always be called by the owner to address her needs. This was "awkward"

Owner's Response: Thank you. We are all in appreciation of your review. Your stay with us was a delight and we do welcome you back to One Rhythm again soon. Your time at One Rhythm was when Jamaica was experiencing some unusually high winds and rain. This weather can create intermittent power and internet outages just like at home in the states. All is well now and fully functioning. Upon guests arrival, we provide all paper products and bath salts. Once these items are consumed, it is up to guests to purchase any additional paper products. As far as food items and spices, we remove all used and left over items from prior guests for health and sanitary reasons. Several times a year, I do get back home to Jamaica and stay at my other property. I do keep this private so as to respect my guests privacy. I am always available to my guests by phone or email. Once again, thank you for your time with us. My staff and I wish you the very best for the upcoming new year. With appreciation, Karen

One Rhythm is The One

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful villa. We wanted to make the most of our first experience in Jamaica. Our children are older, 18 and 20. They loved it.

We have traveled to a lot of beaches. We live at the beach. This is the prettiest beach that I have ever been to. The sand is perfect. It's an easy walk into the water. Great for swimming and snorkeling. The surrounding reef gave us some fun areas to snorkel. Every photo taken was beautiful. This is why you chose Jamaica.

The island is the draw. But the people are what make it. Everyone is friendly and smiling. I read the prior reviews and that is why I chose this villa. They are spot on. Annette is the reason you can truly enjoy your stay. She is so much more than the housekeeper and chef. She knows when to give you your space, when to check on you and wants to make sure that you are happy with everything. She wanted to make sure that she made food that suited everyone in our group. I mean, I know that I should have felt guilty for requesting that she fix nearly every meal for us during our stay, but I enjoyed every minute of it. Her food was always amazing and then to top that off, she went out of her way to fix a wonderful Thanksgiving meal for us. And to have our family all sit together for that many meals is absolutely priceless. Like I said, Annette is so much more.

I hope that you are lucky enough to get Andrew as your driver. He's great. He's very fair. He really takes care of you and your family while you are with him. He makes sure that you get where you need to go and what you need. He stays with you while on your excursions. He gave us peace of mind while out and about. My husband asked many many questions and Andrew was very kind and patient during all of it:) He also helped guide us on what would be the proper amounts to pay and what is not when we asked his opinion. And when he tells you the best place to buy jerk chicken, go there. It was so good and very reasonable!

I hope that everyone can have as great of an experience as my family did while in Jamaica at One Ryhthm. Yea, Mon.
