I was looking for a plece of rest and relaxation and visited Duncans Bay for the first time in 1992.The tranquility, proximity to the beach, the sound of the sea from my bedroom,and the nature walks made it the perfect place to get away from the stress and strin of every day work. I bought the villa in 1993 and it's as been my home away from home ever since.
There are a combination of factors create the atmosphere at Duncans Bay : the fisherman with the daily fresh catch of fish, lobster, and crabs. The area abounds with talented Jamaica artists doing their wood carvings in the nearby craft shop: Desmond - the wicker worker who made my dining chairs. Nelson Fisher - the talented painter, a native son of the trelawny, who does landscapes and still - life acrylic painting. Several pieces of his work are hanging on the wall in the villa.
The peacefulness which allow me to stay on the beach or my front lawn and read a book all day makes it the perfect getaway for me.
My wife and I came to get married on the beach in Jamaica and stayed at the Palm Villa.
We had an amazing time.
The villa was always kept clean and Ms. Jennifer made our stay delightful.
We awoke to a great breakfast every morning and came home to a scrumptious dinner every night.
We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
We came to Palm Villa with mixed expectations. We weren't exactly sure if everything we heard and read would be our same experience too. We were picked up at the airport by Loris and, after a 45 minute drive to Palm Vila, we were greeted by Miss Jennifer. An immediate and overwhelming sense of relief took over all of us as we began our 6 day relaxing vacation. Here's the scoop folks: You need to make a trip to Palm Villa if you are looking for: 1. A beautiful relaxing beachside vacation 2. All your meals cooked by the now infamous, Miss Jennifer. She has the incredible ability to assess your needs and adapt her cooking to your wish-list 3. The ability to unwind, drink, and mix with the locals.
If you are looking for a high-intensity schedule-filled-day.....no need to book here.
Palm Villa forces you to relax...and we did.
Every once in a while, a vacation comes along that hits all the senses: sight, smell, hearing, touch and, especially, taste. Palm Villa checked every one off for our group.
This was our second visit and every year we have booked prior to leaving and extended our stay even longer each time!
The villa has everything you need! If there is a issue they have it fixed very quickly!
This villa is great for a couple,friends or a whole faimly!
The only thing I recommend is being plenty of bug spray and sunscreen BC in Jamacia the cost is very high!
The villa is very clean and well stocked. Truly a home away from home. The garden was beautiful with many varieties of flowers and trees. We enjoyed relaxing in the swing under the almond tree and dancing to the reggae beat in the yard. The beach is just down the road, with stunning white sand. We walked for miles of shoreline without a soul in site. Jennifer was like one of the family. We shopped at the market and she watched our pocketbook. Very relaxing vacation. We will definitely return. See you next year Duncan's Bay!
The villa was exactlty what we expected. It was nice, clean and quiet. The beach is a few steps away from the villa, the beach is beautiful and very private. The place is perfect for people who want to relax and enjoy the beach.
Jennifer, our host, was like a second mother for all of us. She took care of us and make sure we were happy with our stay. Our 3 girls (20, 18, 16 years old) absolutely loved her! She cooked really well and she made sure to cook things we liked, which was nice. She is defintely the heart and soul of Palmvilla. Thanks again Jennifer.
It is true that Palm Villa is the place to be, if you like true relaxation and a good taste of Jamaican life. Ms Jennifer will help you with that and other people in Silver Sands and the fisher village are very friendly. The villa is very clean with a beautiful garden.
If you are reading this review and are looking for a none resort Jamaican experience do yourself the favor of booking Palm Villa. Ms. Jennifer is everything you have read about. Host, ambassador, cook, friend. She will make your time under her care a relaxing and delightful experience. She far exceeded my expectations. I believe that nothing is beyond her and the contact list in her phone. The people she has entrusted to share Jamaica with her guests are all exceptional. All love their country and are delighted to share a Jamaica that is off the beaten path.
We ate Jamaican dishes, prepared by Ms. Jennifer, that make me long for one more bite. We enjoyed a beautiful, uncrowded, beach. 300 yards from our door. We ate fresh everything. Fruit and vegetables that arrive daily, to fish we watched being cleaned in the fishing village a short stroll down the beach. We were allowed to be carefree for ten days. It was like being a kid again. We only had to play, and come back to food on the table. We had but to ask and Jennifer made it so.
Palm Villa is a labor of love. Comfortable, clean, safe, a place I think of as a second home. I can't wait to once again hug Ms. Jennifer and relax in the best place Jamaica has to offer.
