The the food, the fresh air, sound of nature outside, birds singing and the most unforgettable hospitality! Mandeville gets really cool sometimes and for my stay we had temperatures in the 60s at nights. Loved it

“Fantastic Apartment”
Reviewed 12 October 2016 for a stay in April 2016
2
people found this review helpful

The two of us stayed in the larger of the two apartments for 13 nights in April 2016.

I am from the UK and have visited Jamaica several times but had never stayed in Mandeville.

The apartment is located in a nice, quiet area, a short drive from the centre of Mandeville which has everything you need, plenty of restaurants, supermarkets and shops. The accommodation has no dogs although I have seen this stated on some websites.

Lisa (the owner) was very helpful and friendly before we arrived, we spoke several times by email and she responded within good time. Other than that we didn't have any contact with her as it was not needed, the stay was perfect with no problems. We were greeted by Lisa's housekeeper when we arrived who showed us around the apartment.

The apartment was quite large for the two of us and has a lovely garden. The bedroom had a double bed, bedside tables, chest of draws and a small wardrobe. There was an iron available to use in the room. The living room had two large sofa beds, coffee table and a table & chairs for eating. The cable TV in the living room worked fine and WiFi worked most of the time.

There was a full kitchen with an oven, hob, kettle, mini oven and fridge. The basics such as salt, pepper, washing up liquid etc are available for you to use when you arrive.

The bathroom was a decent size. Hot water was always available and the shower had decent power. Towels, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo are available for you to use.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

Hello Lisa,

We felt special in your
beautiful home..... the location was ideal, situated in a quiet residential area 10 minutes walk to the centre of Mandeville. There was plenty of supermarkets, banks, restaurants private and public transports etc, together with an amazing market to cater for our needs.

Taxis are available frequently from Lisa's home either from her gate or a couple of minutes walk away at off peak times. A real priviledge to be encountered with.

Lewis, Rachel and I arrived in Jamaica for my mum's and their grandma's funeral. We wanted a
home away from home. Lisa's apartment was the perfect place!

We were welcomed by her lovely housekeeper Josephine, who showed us to our apartment. It was clean, fresh smelling, spacious and equipped with all amenities including linen, towels and toiletries. Our fridge was well stocked too with all essentials at our request, a wonderful gesture.

My son Lewis was pleasantly surprised with the speed of the internet connection and cable Tv in his bedroom. Lewis made friends with your well mannered son Dillon and played together on his playstation on several occasions.

I was impressed with the beautiful garden with plenty of fruit trees, exotic birds, fragrant plants and flowers. We felt very much at home. I watched my children played and amused themselves, it was just devine, whilst I relaxed and chilled. Rachel loved swinging in the hammock admiring the spectacular countryside.

Lisa is warm, pleasant, knowledgeable and hospitable lady. We loved her breakfast, cooked by the wonderful Josephine which was different every morning, served under the Lychee tree, made from local produced vegetables and fruit.

The children and I looked forward regularly to great conversations from other guests together with fresh Jamaican coffee and mint tea prepared from leaves grown in her garden. We all got on so well, it was like one 'big' happy family.

Nothing was too much trouble for Lisa and her staff, our clothes was laundered by kind and attentive Josephine,she even prepared evening meals for us. Lisa kindly hired her car with a driver to us, a lovely and polite man called Rochaine. We were very fond of Rochaine and the children loved his company.

Thank you very much for having us in your extraordinary home for 12 days Lisa and Dillon. The children and I will never forget the wonderful experience we had.

Best wishes,

Rose, Lewis & Rachel xxx

Rose, Lewis and Rachael came to stay with us due to their Mom/Grandma's funeral. We are happy that we and all our other guests were able to make your stay a very special one especially in the kids time of grief. Seeing the kids coming early to the dining table and enjoying our Jamaican meals was very heartwarming. Our home will always be your home. Warmest

Our stay at Casa da Buena Vista was awesomely comfortable. Lisa is an incredibly caring and considerate host. Our suite was homey, clean and beautiful, and we wish we could have stayed longer. And when she says she's "fixing up something special for breakfast", she means it. Around every corner, there was something different and unique which allowed for pure authenticity and creativity. Homey is all you can think of when you see pictures of family members and friends. It's comforting for persons looking not just for a place to rest their heads but for a home away from home. We recommend Casa da Buena Vista to any duo.
