About Amy McEvoy
Welcome to the Sea Miracle Villa. It is my pleasure to have you stay in what I call my passion miracle. I grew up in a suburb of Detroit, MI and have never really loved the winters here. The older I have gotten, the less I like them! I still have my permanent residence in a suburb of Detroit, MI. I started coming to Jamaica five years ago to celebrate my 40th birthday with some very dear friends. I remember saying to myself while on that beautiful vacation for ten days, "what a blessing!" The whole time I was hear I kept whispering to God, thank you, thank you, thank you! I decided on that trip that I wanted a house here in Duncans Bay Jamaica. I fell in love. How and when was it going to happen I didn’t know, but I knew. Well, I have always loved the Sea, the Sand, the Sun. So, a house in the tropics always seemed like a far-off dream. One I never thought that I would achieve. Fast forward four and half years and I decided to bring my 15-year-old daughter, 13-year-old son and 11-year-old son to the place I love so much. I was hoping they would enjoy it and love it as much as I do. Well, they fell in love too! They love the food, the culture, the sights, the sounds, the sea, the sun as much I do. So, I said to them lets buy a house here! And here we are! The four of us couldn’t be more blessed and thankful! Be careful what you wish for, what you dream about and what you see, you never know it just might happen! One Love

What makes this Villa unique
One benefits of staying in a villa, such as the Sea Miracle, is that you are able to really learn about the Jamaican culture. You will really get a "feel" for the island, the people, the food, the music and what it is all about. So, when you return you can say you WENT to JAMAICA!!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
I have no idea how I can succinctly I sum up how amazing Amy, her local team, and her villa all are.
Amy (the property owner) was a dream to work with before and during the trip. She was always quick to respond, offer advice, and answer my millions of questions leading up to and throughout the trip.
Kevin and Hopeton (the local drivers) were super friendly and safe drivers to and from the airport - and when we wanted to venture out from the unit.
Althea (the local housekeeper) was a warm and friendly presence in the unit. She was always willing to cook, clean, and help out with a smile - and she made the best tasting meals for us!
The unit itself was spacious, clean, and homely. It's about 200 feet from the beach, and we felt completely safe there in the small residential community at Duncan's Bay. The beds were comfortable, and there is an AC unit in each bedroom.
I've been to numerous islands in the Caribbean and they all have rolling power outage/cable/Internet issues. We never experienced any issues here - the Internet was fast and reliable. So if you unfortunately experience any issues, it's not Amy's fault - everything is set up properly.
I don't know if we just got lucky with the timing, but for us, the beach was quiet and peaceful, and pretty much a private beach. We only saw a handful of people on the beach itself. Amy has chairs and coolers you can bring down with you. There are two little food/drink shacks on the beach with super friendly staffs willing to serve you drinks and cook up some amazing local food.
The grassy knoll in between the beach and the villa are full of locals who very much want to kindly chat, fist bump, hug, and make small talk to get to know you.
If you want a peaceful getaway to live like a local with a hands on housekeeper, I give the Sea Miracle my highest recommendation.
Mark, thank you for the review! I am happy to know you enjoyed your stay at the Sea Miracle. Having guests as easy and wonderful as you, your girlfriend and parents makes our jobs that much more pleasurable!
You are correct, in that, at times, there are issues with power and internet connection. They happen far and few between, but they do happen. Unfortunately, I don't have control over this, except to call the respective company and let them know there are issues needing attention.
The beach is always very private and has very few people. That doesn't have much to do with timing. The privacy of the beach is, for the most part, a constant. We are very blessed to have such a beautiful beach that is so private and in its natural setting and surroundings.
Thanks again, Mark, for choosing the Sea Miracle. We would love to host you again in the future!
Jamaica on business:)
Nice villa. Friendly staff. Close to the public beach. AC worked very well and very much needed in the bedrooms!!
Well appointed kitchen.
Relax and Rejuvenate
Renting from Amy was such a wonderful experience...she answered all our questions and more! Sea Miracle Villa is such a beautiful oasis. Everything was perfect. Althea kept the villa sparkling and her cooking is delicious. Hopeton is one of the safest and conscientious driver around as the drivers in Jamaica are crazy!!! It was nice to be in +29 weather versus our -30 weather at home so made our winter 1 week shorter!!! Beach is a very short walk and so private and calm. The neighborhood is so friendly and welcoming. Definitely you get what is advertised.
Exactly as advertised
We enjoyed 2 weeks at Amy’s bright and clean villa in Duncan’s Bay. We were charmed by the welcoming low key community that sits right on a beautiful stretch of beach. One of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had. Thanks for taking such good care of us Amy, Althea and David!

amazing house, great place to relax and let nature mesmerize you!
the house is well equiped, clean, and super cosy. The beach is beautiful and just a few
steps away. Warming neighborhood that sums up with the great vibe of the villa. Amy is truly a super hostess, making you feel comfortable and cared at all time.
Thank you, Maira! It was a pleasure hosting you and your friends!
The property was very well manicured, and beautiful front to back..perfect lounging in the evening!!
The property, staff and amenities were over the top!! We could not have been more happy with all of it... Amy was very helpful with any and all questions before our arrival and during our stay.. Althea was a fantastic housekeeper and even better chef.. We thoroughly loved everything she prepared, even some American dishes!!... Hopeton was the most kind, soft spoken young man. He really knows how to make you feel safe, with with the crazy drivers in the island... The beach access was only 300 feet away, and the most stunning stretch of beach we've ever seen... It was very private setting and the locals really make you feel at home... We will most definitely be returning to the Sea Miracle as soon as able... We've made life long friends and a family vacation destination for many many years to come... Thank you all so very much, I can hardly wait to write another review after our next stay!!! Til then Jamaica!!!! One Love
Thank you, Doug! We enjoyed having you and your family stay and look forward to having you again!
