villa and grounds beautiful and well maintained. The staff are very helpful but respect your privacy,however unlucky enough to be in the master bedroom with faulty AC over last 4 nights so didn't sleep well but have to say Morris tried his best to get it repaired. Had a brilliant family party here an would recommend it.
Would have liked parasol for some shade when having a pool day.

I spoke to this lady on a number of occasions to make sure she was happy she explained that she was unhappy with the cost of the air port pick up, as she come on boxing day I told her clearly that I have nothing to do with the cost as it is totally independent contract.

Because she was unhappy I decided to give her some money back out of my own pocket the reward I got from this, is she got her whole family to write a bad review

I explained the trasportation price so she was aware before hand so she could have made her own arrangements, but insisted that I make the arrangements I told her that they are going to charge her a lot as it is Boxing day a national holiday.

She seemed to blame me even through I explained clearly to her that I receive no money from the transfers if she can find a better rate else where I would be happy for her to use that service.

I explained to her that if a guest requires an airport pickup I can only arrange it with a reputable company which I did.

She insisted that it is my fault that they charged her so much on Boxing Day even through she accepted that I have no control over the cost on a national holiday.

This lady also complained that she also her guests were being bitten by mosquitos.

When I explain her complaints to our staff they told me that these guests where told not to leave the doors open as there are 3 doors where you can enter the main villa if somebody leaves the doors open things will come in as it is a topical country.

Maurice explained this to this lady also her guests more than once. There was a lot of them so they came and went as they please

He told me that he can only advise guests the guests can do as they please also the guest can bring who they wish to the villa which I agree with.

Our staff can only advise but they can not tell guest what to do unless it is a life and death situation.

The lady was very angry about our Housekeeper Natalie was not working on the Christmas weekend.

Our cleaner has 3 children she is entitled Boxing Day off she was back there the very next day.

In this business it is impossible to please everybody even through you give it your best shot.

I have explained to her that she would have trouble to find somewhere as nice as our villa for the cost that she has paid, she agreed with me while she was there.

I kept in constant contact with her and at know time did she indicate that she was unhappy except for the pool sharing with the studio and our double bedrooms

I explained that they could work out a routine but the other people stopped using the pool so she also her guests had exclusive use of the pool.

I strongly be leave that in this business you can not please every one because everybody is different you can only make sure that they are safe first and for most, also that they do not lose anything, the place is clean through out also comfortable plus the staff are pleasant also polite and helpful.

I have travelled around the world and stayed in some fantastic places I have tried my best to my budget to produce a decent away from home where guests feel safe also comfortable in our surroundings which most people who have resided with us have found our villa to be very good.

We are proud to say that we have a lot of returning guests

We have a brand new 900 BTU air conditioner in the master bedroom but if it is left on 24 hours a days it will start to drip so we have now installed a timer to solve this problem

Kindest Regards

“OK villa, owner needs to be a straight forward communicator....”
Reviewed 6 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

My friend and I booked Villa Patiently Waiting for a Christmas holiday with our kids, the property is situated in a gated community with a small beach within walking distance. The owner organised an airport pick up for us which he initially quoted £80 for the 6 of us which quickly became £110 because it was Christmas, the driver who we were told was called Robin turned out to be Dave, the jalopy of a bus he picked us up in broke down and I found myself being mechanic assistant as he tried to figure out the problem, the boot also didn't work so we worried our suitcases would end up on the motorway by the time we arrived at the villa. He finally managed to get a jump start from some locals, when we arrived at the villa he insisted the charge was £150!!! We were so tired we didn't have the fight in us to argue but complained to the owner who returned some of the money to us, fair to say it left a bad taste in our mouths before the holiday had even begun.
The villa itself is spacious and airy though it is in need of some updating despite being billed as a luxury property, the grounds it's set in are well kept and Mammee Bay Estate is pretty. We had teenagers with us so they appreciated the 4 TVs installed (1in each bedroom) and the WiFi. The bedrooms have air con but none in the main living area apart from a fan so it got uncomfortably hot at times. The lighting in the living area and bathrooms is substandard, need good lighting in bathrooms especially having teenage girls who wanted to do their make up for going out in the evenings.
There is a lovely cleaner who comes each day though we learnt once we got there that she doesn't do weekends, think it would have been good to know this upfront! The caretaker started off well but we saw less of him as the days passed, the pool he seemed to clean each day earlier during our stay was left until it became quite dirty. He told us mosquitos were not much of a problem in the property but we got bitten pretty badly, there should be the option of nets in each bedroom, we learnt that bug spray should have been provided from the start which we got in the last part of the stay which also helped kill the roaches we encountered!!!!
We rented the villa with the belief we had sole use of the pool but we found there are a couple of studio apartments on the site and the occupants used the pool too, not a huge problem but the owner should have made that clear in his description to prevent any confusion.
One of the rental studios has a thin plasterboard wall adjacent to our living and kitchen area, we unfortunately had to endure the sound of the occupants having loud sex, awkward......

Be nice if the owner provided a care pack on arrival, a bottle of water and some juice as we arrived during the night and woke up parched and having to find out where the nearest supermarket was to buy provisions.
I think it would be sensible if the villa was also equipped with info on local attractions, restaurants and bars and basic tips to help smooth the stay.
You really need a car as the estate is not in close proximity to a lot of shops or restaurants, again the owner should have made a point of this as it's quite an important aspect, we actually met 2 drivers who were genuine and used them to get around and they were open to proper negotiation on price, my friend recommended one of them to the owner to use for airport collections for future guests! We've kept their details and will recommend them to friends.
Dunns River and Mystic Mountain are about a 10 minute drive away which are great for days out.
Overall we had a fantastic holiday, Jamaica is one of the most beautiful places on earth, not sure I would stay at Villa Patiently Waiting again, but I cannot wait to get back to the island soon.

“BOXING DAY FOR 9 DAYS”
Reviewed 6 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

people found this review helpful

After a lot of tooing and froing via email and phone calls I was looking forward to my stay with my friend and our 3 teenage children and one twenty something year old child. We arrived and was picked up by a driver who the owner Alvin had sorted out. Now I was told £80 to pick up then was told £110 because it was boxing day! The van broke down and the driver asked for £150...HE WAS TAKING THE PISS as far as I was concerned. We paid the money was tired and managed to get back £20 from the owner. Montego Bay is 1 hour 45 mins to Villa Patiently Waiting. We arrived to find a massive Cockroach in one of the bathrooms. I would have thought that the villa would have been sprayed before our arrival. We were bitten every night until we insisted on Morris the caretaker getting us a spray. I also had to insist on a phone, which was promised.

Our first day we came back and there was someone else sitting by the pool, I had not been advised by the Alvin that we had to share the pool, if i rent a villa with a private pool I'm not expecting to share it with anyone. Also the pool was not cleaned EVERY day, we had to wait 2 days for a cleaner to come as she didn't work at weekends! We ended up finding a hoover without a hose and hoovered the place there were ants accumulating on work surfaces and the floor in the lounge.
The second morning I had to kill a cockroach in my daughters room, as the place wasn't sprayed.

One of the rooms were two of our 14 year olds were staying the water kept dripping so the room was damp. The shower head in the big bedroom just spurted out. I was expecting towels and bedding to be changed every day, this was not the case. The cleaner Natalie was very helpful.

We were also expected to pay for sun loungers on the estate beach which apparently we were meant to get a beach pass from our villa owner. Alvin the owner called a couple of days after that we didn't hear from him.

I had to pay £90 service charge, I'm still not sure what this was for. The pool was not cleaned every day, the area around the pool was dirty. We had to ask Natalie the cleaner to mop the area as another guest had trodden mud around the pool in the night and left cigarette ends.

On a positive note the villa was good size and we didn't feel that we were on top of each other. There were english plug sockets, the villa was very light, TV in every room the lighting could have been better it was very dark in the lounge and big bedroom. The wifi was very good. You definitely needed to have a car, as some people just saw us as a way to make some cash! The villa is VERY secure and had 24 hours security on the gate.

We were able to leave laptops and ipads etc around and they were safe.

If you are looking for space and nicely furnished rooms this is the place. The swimming pool is always in the sun and the beach is nearby (less than 5min). The owners description does justice. But sometimes other rooms on the premises are rented out as well and you have to share the pool.
The staff (Maurice the manager and Natalie for cleaning) was really pleasant to have around. Always polite, respectful and of service. Maurice is always on the top of things. When he organizes something for you it will work out perfectly. But one should know that this service is not included. He is always there to cook if you ask him and pay him to do so. He has lots of drivers at hand who come punctually, but this cost you almost double the price. Example: pick up from the airport (6 people with luggage) cost us 150 US$ on the way back by our own arrangement, but 250 US$ when picking up. Natalie made up the rooms to our satisfaction. The owner also called a number of times to make sure that everything was allright. All in all we had a very enjoyable stay.
