We only stayed at coolshades for a few nights at the end of our trip, I've been home 2 days and missing it already! Truly beautiful property and the Richmond Estate is stunning. The property is central in terms of travelling the island however it is about a 20 minute walk to the main road should you wish to flag down a local taxi/bus. Amenities within the property are second to none and the host has truly thought of everything you might need to enjoy your stay. Would stay again in a heartbeat and would recommend the property to anybody!

I booked Michelle's Cool Shades Villa for a long weekend with my Mother, Father, and Brother. Our stay was extremely comfortable and wonderful overall! The home is in a meticulously manicured gated community. There are sea views from the porch. Security is present at all times, and the neighborhood is extremely quiet. Kay-Ann, the housekeeper was there to greet us upon our arrival, and gave us a detailed tour of the property before leaving. The home is very clean, with televisions in each room, and has wifi available. Michelle is acutely responsive, and answered all of our questions with little to no wait time. The clubhouse is great as well. There is a modern supermarket at the base of the the community, and the community is only about 5 to 15 min away from the all of the natural attractions of Ocho Rios by car. I'd recommend renting a car if you are familiar with "driving in Jamaica". A great value, would stay again.

We enjoyed the villa very much. The gaited community provides security and a feeling of safety. We vacationed from July 3rd till July 18. The pool was like 2 min walk and hardly busy. They have a beautiful gym by the pool with a ping pong and pool table. They have wifi at the pool as well. The villa was clean and well equipped with cooking and eating equipment and a water and ice machine in the fridge. The washer machine worked great and they had laundry lines outside for clothes. The grocery store could be walking distance but for the time of year with the heat it would be impossible. The private beach the renters have access to is a drive approx 10-15 min drive and not walkable. The area in which Richmond estates is is in the country and you would need a vehicle to get around. Depending on how much you plan on doing you could spend money on taxi. Or you would need a rental vehicle. We had a few minor issues with the wifi not working for a few days. The wifi was not accessible in any of the bedrooms only from the main rooms. The lack of internet made it difficult to contact our family when we arrived. Our family in JA was able to use phone credit for us to call family. Also once we found out we could use the wifi at the pool this was ok. The villa was missing a shower curtain and rod in one of the bathrooms. I was able to find a rod and bought a cheap curtain. The beds did not have mattress covers and that was a concern as I had a potty training child. Once I notified Michelle of these issues she gave us a refund for one nights stay for our inconvenience. This was much appreciated. It was a bit challenging not having someone to deal with our concerns as the housekeeper couldn't always make the decisions on her own and Michelle lives abroad. With this said I would not let these issues bother me or impede me from staying at Michelle's villa again. She has a more flexible policy when it come to additional guests on a more reasonable rate/night. This place was beautiful and my family loved it. Thanks so much Michelle

House was very nice and in a nice neighborhood. Centrally located between Falmouth and Ochos so we were able to do a lot in our short stay. Communication was great and beds we're comfortable

Overall my fiance's 30th went off just as planed. Michelle was a tremendous help throughout the whole process. The house itself was absolutely amazing. Very very clean and well kept. The driver that Michelle recommended was also a great help. He was very knowledgeable on different areas we should visit and things to do. The neighborhood was very well maintained. The pool area is very nice. Internet can be spotty inside of the bedrooms, so I suggest staying closer towards the front. Overall the trip was amazing and I would defiantly return. Michelle's home provided a peaceful option not to far away from all the action.

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.
