The staff, Sonia, Howard and Delores are amazing and so attentive. Make sure to ask Howard for some Rum Punch and Delores for some Curry Chicken...simply divine. I stayed with family 3 adults and four kids and we never wanted to leave the Villa because it was just like home. We felt very safe here and it has an amazing view to the ocean. We hung out in the pool listened to loud reggae music and just had a ball. The price was reasonable and the location very good to get to and from attractions. We utilized Jackson the driver recommended by the owner and were pleased with his services. He is punctual and knowledgeable about the owner. I loved that we could shop in the privacy of the home and even get our hair braided. Two things to know about Jamaica is that food is fairly expensive in the stores compared with the States and some things are just not available. Bring your favorite items like cereal, peanut butter, jelly, kid snacks with you as they will be pricey if available in the store. Delores will shop for you or you can go with her. Menu plan with her and your vacation will be effortless. She will cook your every hearts desire and it will be delicious. You can get fresh fish that is amazing from the fish monger just tell Delores what kind you want. Bring mosquito spray. We loved eating on the patio as the sunset. This is an amazing villa and is so peaceful and relaxing.

“An absolute treasure!”
Reviewed 27 February 2013 for a stay in November 2012

My group and I stayed in the villa and another villa for a week in November 2012. This villa was such a treasure that anytime i think about it I get wistful! It was in a great location, easy to get to the beach! Fabulous views! Wonderful staff! Very comfortable beds, sumptuous accommodations, quirky but tasteful decorations, very clean swimming pool, very secure and absolutely the best!

We were so pampered at this villa that when we could not stay at another villa we were booked into. We spent a night at the new villa and the new day we were fortunate enough to be able to book back into Skylark for the rest of our stay! Such a treasure!

Well looked after by the staff! Well done Howard, Dolores and Sonya! Please if you stay here, do tip the staff! They are worth it and then more!

Just want to start out by thanking Sonya Howard and Deloris. They couldn't have been any nicer. Really made you feel at home. We recently stayed here for a very low key relaxing bachelor party. The villa is clean and deloris' cooking was excellent. Our second night there the transformer in front of the villa blew and we had no electric. Immediately Sonya was on the phone to have it repaired and it was in just over 12 hours. i am a big guy and was a little leery about the A/C but i actually had to wake up in the middle of the night to turn the A/C down as did everyone else in the house. there is a friendly dog on site they keep him chained up most of the time. We asked for him to not be on the chain he was def on the skinny side and we bought him a bag of dog food. i would absolutely recommend this villa. Its was my first time renting a villa and not staying in a resort and was pleasantly surprised.
