Going here was, at the least, an amazing experience. The place, by far, exceeded our expectations. It is absolutely beautiful, comfortable, clean and safe. There is a grocery store in walking distance at the end of the community, and you can go into Saint Anns Bay or Ocho Rios for groceries as well, which is a short drive away. The grocery store in Ocho Rios was big and had everything you needed, would probably be the one we would suggest. Close by are several attractions, Dolphin Cove, Dunns River Falls, Margaritaville, Scotchies, Ocho Rios Jerk Centre(which we thoroughly enjoyed), Flavours beach, and many other things. We would have loved to stayed longer and experienced all the attractions surrounding the area. The pool is a short distance from the house, and absolutely beautiful. And coming from someone who stayed at many all inclusive resorts, is much more relaxing, you don't have to rush to get up and get chairs by the pool. Some days we had the place to ourselves to enjoy. The community is very safe, completely gated, 24 hour security, foot patrol. You couldn't feel any more safe. We were so comfortable there, we felt right at home. Kayann, the housekeeper, was very friendly and helpful, and is just a call away if you need anything, you can even get her to cook you some jamaican meals. Everybody we met from the community, other house owners, security, pool workers, etc., were extremely friendly. There is also a driver for the community, Keith, which we used during our stay who brought us most of the places we went and suggested some places to us as well. He was very friendly and helpful, we would recommend him if you aren't renting a car. We got to see a lot more of Jamaica staying here than we did staying at a resort and we look forward to returning to Michelle's home again in the near future.
If you go, we recommend going to the Jerk Centre or Scotchies and trying some jerk chicken or pork, festival, and fried plantain. And make sure to visit somewhere that has Jamaican patties, they are delicious.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to return. Thank you Michelle, your home is absolutely beautiful.
