  • This is truly a home from home!! Although we arrived later than planned the housekeeper Alecia was there to hand with a warm welcome and guided us to the location. After a long flight we were not disappointed and felt at home straight away when we arrived. All rooms were as described clean bright and very comfortable. The location and home was beautifully maintained, and although we were visiting an elderly relative, we could not have made a better choice for self-catering. Also having the internet on tap is definitely big plus during our stay.

    Arlene, was the perfect host, checking up on us on our arrival to ensure everything was to our satisfaction.

    I must add, the surrounding area was quite, safe and peaceful and a enjoy to be in whatever the time of day or night for that matter. I only wished that we could have stayed longer.

    If you were blind folded and landed here, it would be hard to believe that you were actually in Jamaica. This housing complex is definitely the way to go for Jamaica....

    Thanks Arlene for the opportunity to share your family home in JA and we would not hesitate to visit again!!

  • I felt at home from the moment we stepped into Arlene's home. Nothing was overstated. The rooms and entire place was beautiful and I was not disappointed. This property was well kept and the community secure. We made it to the pool and our kids had a great time. Everything in the house was up to date. Arlene checked up on us to ensure that we were comfortable. Arlene quickly resolved our concerns which made us very pleased. For an exceptional stay at a reasonable price, this is the way to go. Thank you Arlene and your family for opening up your home to us. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

    Thank you Alecia. I appreciated your communications.

  • My experience with Arlene was very pleasant from the beginning. I stayed at her house with my husband and two children for nine days. The house was very clean and well kept.Thanks to Alecia the house keeper for that. She was very pleasant and helpful. She is also a great cook. She cooked for us for two days and the meals were delicious. We had everything at the house to our comfort.The internet was a big plus. I really felt at home. We were very impress with the neighborhood. The surrounding was quiet and peaceful. The landscaping was beautiful. We felt very safe there since security was always walking around. We did not use the gym but we enjoyed the private beach and the pool. They also had a playground which was good for us because my son is three years old. He enjoyed it a lot. Overall it was an enjoyable stay. Thanks Arlene for always calling to check up on us. We'll would love to come again.

  • My experience with Arlene was very positive from the onset. Unlike other host she always replied to me within hours if not minutes to any quiries I had.

    The home and community surpassed my expectations. They were both extremely clean and well maintianed and I always saw yard staff in the neighborhood taking care of the landscape.

    The home comes with a housekeeper by the name of Alicia and she was awesome. I truly wished I could have bottled her up and brought her back to Canada with me. We spoke 2 weeks prior and she explained her process to me. I gave her a list of meals that I wanted for my stay and she agreed to all of them. I wired her enough money to purchase things she needed for my first breakfast and dinner. When I arrived the first evening dinner was hot and waiting on the stove. Her oxtail and rice & peas was great. The next morning she came at 8:00 and prepared our breakfast of Ackee & saltfish with fried dumplings and plantains. Again it was all great. After she cleaned up the breakfast dishes we went to the market where she grabbed everything I desired and more. I paid the bills at the cash registers and all was well.

    Alicia made herself available when needed to cook and clean. If we needed her there early to prepare breakfast because we had an early excursion we woke up to a hot breakfast ready and waiting. If we asked her to come a little as we would be sleeping in because we were out late on the town she obliged as well. Alicia kept the home immaculately clean at all times without being over bearing. She even offered to do our laundry before we left.

    All in all it was a great experiencea and I promise that everytime I visit St. Annes Jamaica I will stay at Arlenes if available.

    Response from Arlene:

    Leon, thank you for sharing your awesome experience. We will endeavor to make the Richmond experience pleasantly memorable.

  • At first I was sceptical about holiday rentals. Hotels in the winter are over priced so this was the best option. My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights. Excellent. From the moment we pulled up to the gate I loved it. The house itself is better than the pics. We was so impressed!! We had our own transport so we didn't use public but Arlene did mention that she could get us a taxi if we needed it. The house was clean and the housekeeper was very friendly and helpful she and Arlene checked up on us to make sure we was ok. We did not use the gym or the pass to the private beach. The pool was just how it looks in the pics!! Amazing!! I would definitely stay again. Thank you!!!

    Thank you for a great review.

  • Thank you Arlene, for opening you beautiful home to me and my friends. My stay here was very pleasant. Everything was new and the house was filled with everything you needed including a washing machine. The pool was just at the end of the street along side the pool table and pinball table. The gym was available although that was not my thing my friends enjoyed it. There was a pass to the private beach which we enjoyed very much. I really appreciated the fact that we were able to sit down and have a formal meal together in the dining room. cable and internet was a plus when when we where not out on the town......would love to come again...see you soon! and thanks again for checking on us to make sure everything was OK.

About
I am a christian, a wife, a mother and a hematologist-oncologist physician. Caring for patients with cancer takes compassion and dedication and has many challenges. I look forward to coming to our vacation home in Jamaica to rejuvenate and enjoy the paradise island. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading to my kids, making all kinds of waffles and cookies together, going to church with my family, talking with my husband into the night until I fall asleep and listening to hymns. I am a wanna-be-marathon runner and a wanna-be-golfer..... one day I hope to fulfill that dream.
