“Slice of Heaven on secluded beach”

We were 5 couples vacationing at the Sunkissed Villa in February 2016. Rory, the owner, answered my emails very quickly and all my many questions. He also arranged a driver to meet us at the airport and transfer us to the villa ($20 USD pp). The villa is about 1 hr from Montego Bay and 45 mins from Ocho Rios. We had also arranged for some pre-stocking of food and beer so it was easy to get into the vacation mode easily once we arrived.

The pictures on the site are very accurate of the villa. The bedrooms are decorated lovely and have lots of space. Most of the bedrooms had beautiful walk-in showers and the master suite had an outdoor shower as well. But the best feature of this villa is the pool and it's view. Sitting just 55 steps from the ocean and a sandy beach, the pool created a very luxurious feel with the lounger island in the middle of the pool, and a jet tub. At night the pool was lit up in blue and purple lighting and added a lovely ambience outside in the evenings. The outdoor sitting area was designed well and very comfortable.

The house came with 3 employees...a cook, a housekeeper and a groundskeeper. The groundskeeper stayed on the property at night so we felt very safe in the villa. He would come around every night as we were heading off to bed and lock us up nice and tight inside. Our cook and housekeeper prepared all our meals and our Cook, Miss Gloria, even made arrangements for fresh lobster on two nights. And I mean fresh....the tiny fishing boat, with a lobster cage on the back, drove right up to our beach and dropped off our lobsters, still kicking and fighting.

This was the first time our group had rented a villa with a cook included. We provided a menu of what we wanted for the first two days and the food was stocked ahead of time. We paid the grocery bill the next day at the grocery store when we went with Miss Gloria to get more provisions. A hint....plan your meals, with Gloria's assistance, and buy for the week as the grocery store is about a $40 taxi ride from the villa. Groceries were not cheap in Jamaica but not overly expensive either. Liquor did seem more expensive than in Canada, except for Rum and beer.

The beach that the villa sits on is not very long, maybe 10 other houses along this stretch but its very secluded and private. There is a River Tubing excursion company at the end of the beach and we did take this excursion that let us tube down the river that was on the other end of our beach. The water stays shallow for quite a way out on the beach so good for children.

Liked best: Location of villa directly on the beach and very secluded. The pool was beautiful as well and gave it a very luxurious ambience.
Liked least: A bit remote from anything else. Expensive to take taxi's for groceries, etc. Closest night action would be 15-20 minutes away.

I simply can not express how awesome our experience was at Sunkissed Villa!! From the moment we arrived, we were warmly greeted by the gracious staff. Pictures really do not do the villa justice. The entire villa is well appointed with just the right touch to make you feel like you are staying at a high end resort. The difference is in the level of service that the staff provides in this beautiful setting. We provided a menu for our first day and Ms. Gloria, the villa's cook, delivered toe curling, home cooked Jamaican food. She delivered every single day of our five day - five night stay promptly at our requested time with a table nicely set for us.

Pros: Beautifully romantic, perfect place when you want to get away from the concrete jungle, attentive staff, well appointed villa, great communication with owner, perfect for couples, family, friends gathering.
