Thank youTanika for letting us call your beautiful property home for a week. The house is bright and spacious with all mod cons. Tanika's helpful and speedy replies to our queries regarding transfers and local grocery stores ensured we knew everything we needed in advance of our arrival. A 'welcome pack' was also emailed to us ahead of arrival with advice on the local area and guidance on using the Wi-Fi and TV etc.
On the day of our arrival Ms Janett was there to welcome us and show us around the property and answer any further questions we had. She is also available to cook if required at a small additional cost. Fantastic tasty home cooking I highly recommend her!
We were lucky enough to have a lift available when needed however I would stress the need to book car hire when visiting this area. There are other travel options; such as shared taxis which are available from the main road a short 15 minute walk away. However the convenience of hiring your own vehicle with the independence to explore local beaches and sights can't be beaten.
The complex has a pool which is approx 10 minutes when walking. There is no life guard on duty. Sunbeds are available.
We attended a wedding at the nearby Club Riu which is 10 mins away by car. I wouldn't advise walking from the property to this venue.
This was the perfect base for us during our visit to JA.
We had an absolutely great experience staying at Tanika's property. There were 7 of us in our party and we will all be back. We had Janet our housekeeper/cook was a delight. She prepared Jamaican meals which made us eat at home during our stay. Real authentic Jamaican food. Our driver was Johnny. Took us where we needed to go and for a good price.
The house was perfect location for us. We were there for Rebel Salute. We could sit in the front screened patio area and see the mountains. We could sit on the back patio and enjoy the quiet and listen to music outside. We didn't use the hot tub, but it was there for our use.
We gave our stay at Tanika's a 5-star.
All in all, we will be back. See you Tanika in January 2019.
A beautiful home that was spotless and tastefully decorated. Came with everything we needed and the cutest little book that had all the information about everything that we needed to know about the house and the surrounding areas. Definitely my go to spot for time spent in Ocho Rios!
The Drax Hall Complex is lovely and located less than 15 minutes from Ochi Rios and St Ann bay allows you assess to all you needs and entertainment. The house features provides a family tone and spring break getaway experience.
