Why Natalie Henderson / Ethlyn Moulton chose Duncans

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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.

Our family of five adults spent New Years week at Palm Villa and had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very comfortable and just a few steps from a great, quiet beach with beautiful blue ocean waters. We spent New Year's Eve at the local beach bar celebration that included fireworks and a bonfire. Cook and housekeeper, Jennifer made several memorable dinners for us including jerk chicken and ackee and salt fish. She was a wonderful host - helping us with everything from groceries to which local sights and activities were recommended. We highly recommend Palm Villa for a quiet beach vacation away from the crowds and tourist centers.

Wonderful time.

  • 4 of 5

I was nervous taking my family somewhere I was unfamiliar with. After Kirk meeting us at the airport and coming home to dinner made by Jenny the feelings quickly subsided. Jenny made our stay wonderful and I could trust Laris to get my young adult children to and from where they wanted to go. The property itself was challenged as they had a lot of rain before we came and during our stay that left the water pressure low but that was out of their control. Jenny’s homemade meals made up for anything that might have put a damper on things. I can’t say enough good things about her and how she made us feel while we were there.

My Birthday Treat from my Daughter

  • 4 of 5

I had this thought to celebrate my 60th birthday with my daughter, baby sister and niece in Jamaica after Christmas. A long time friend suggested Palm Villa. My daughter made this idea/gift possible. I am immensely grateful to her. What a welcomed place for R&R! Absolute access to the beach, sun, and relaxation. Accommodations were good. Grateful for the sleeping nets to ward off mosquitos feeding on my flesh during my slumber. Appreciative of the transport to and from the airport, the grocery store to purchase food and those meals prepared for us.

Not one to require being waited upon or looked after, privacy is appreciated because I came for that level of peace. I am sure I will return to Jamaica! Grateful for being off the beaten path. Neighbors were a bit noisy at night but no fault of Palm Villa hosts.

Thankful for God’s blessing through my daughter’s gifting, my sister’s willingness to join me and my hostess’s gracefulness.

Thank you!

Yours in Christ,

Amazing stay at Palm Villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I , and our children (aged 18 and 15) just returned from a 5 day stay at Palm Villa. What an amazing experience! The house was perfect. It had everything we needed and was steps from the most beautiful beach we have ever visited. It was situated on a small street right off the beach, in a Jamaican neighborhood. The local residents were always so friendly to us. We enjoyed looking at all their beautiful wood carvings and paintings - we just had to buy some to bring home!

And then there was Jennifer. From the first hello hug to our final goodbye hug, she was so warm, inviting and helpful. Anything we needed, she was there to help, and her cooking was amazing!! We looked forward to every meal she prepared! From the little details (the towel decorations and flowers on the bed) to her pampering us (always having a cold drink ready for us when we came up from the beach) she made us feel spoiled!

Our driver, Loris, was wonderful too! He was available to take us on short notice - and drove us to out of the way destinations (Irie Blue Hole)! He looked out for us on our excursions and made stops along the way to show us things (the spot where Columbus first landed in Jamaica).

If you want an amazing, true Jamaican experience, then I highly recommend Palm Villa. Jennifer will take care of you and make sure you have the best trip possible!

Awesome Villa

  • 5 of 5

First time to Jamaica and decided to not do the whole all-inclusive resort and found this little gem. Let me just say was by far the best vacation ever. Our warm welcoming host Jennifer made our time at Palm Villa very relaxing and was helpful in every respect. Jennifer lovingly prepared all of our meals which were authentic Jamaican cuisine and were delicious. The white sand beach is 100 steps from the villa. Full immersion into the Jamaican culture was perfect.

Perfekt relaxing beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

This trip to palm villa was very wonderful. Jennifer made sure that we had everything to make us feel good. Every day she cooked some real nice food for us.. oh if i think about that akee and saltfish, i want some right now!! The house contains everything to make you feel like you're home and its real close to the pretty silver sands beach(less then a minute by walking distance). The neighborhood is quit and safe. We met some friendly locals and tourists but there wasn't much people around what made us feels like the beach was there just for us. We went there with kids and i would recommend this place to be perfect for kids. And for parents as well. We came exhausted and left relaxed!!

Thank you Jennifer for everything! You are a perfect host!!
