Villa Serene offers a real taste of Jamaica's South Coast. The property is off the beaten track but has all the comforts of home, nestled on a private beach and close to some of the best attractions. The property is great for lounging by the pool or a romantic night time bonfire on your private beach. The property is equipped with air conditioning and has many outdoor and indoor entertaining space. The various nooks mean that it is ideal for multifamily rentals.
There is a pool; toddler's wading pool; hot tub and Jacuzzi. Guests have full access to all areas. No amenities are shared, this is your home away from home. Staff will be present at the villa during the guests stay.

Upon arrival, Cheryl greeted us to show us around the villa and even had birthday cake waiting for me. She was very helpful even before we arrived with answering questions for locations for...

Their enjoyment of Villa Serene and of their Jamaican experience was infectious... Believe me! They have endorsed my concept of enjoying life and not sweating the small stuff. I now, want...
