We recently stayed at Emerald Beach number 1 and was hugely impressed... The staff Pam and Gloria are very friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. When we arrived we were greeted to homemade lemonade, an ice cold flannel and an array of fresh tropical flowers! Every day they served up the most delicious lunches and evening meals.... More

We just returned back home from our 3rd visit to Emerald Beach Villa # 5 and we are already planning our 4th visit for next year. Our stay always feels like we are on our very own 5-star resort. My husband and our two children absolutely love vacationing at Emerald Beach. A tropical paradise in every sense of the word.... More

When you go to a new destination, it is natural to be a bit apprehensive. Will it live up to your expectations? Will you be glad you decided to go there? In the case of Emerald Beach #2, I think you will be pleasantly impressed. The neat and tidy property is exactly like it appears in the advertising. The villa... More

My family and I spent 8 glorious days at the beachfront paradise and it was easily the best vacation we've ever had. The villa was spotless, comfortable, spacious, gorgeous and had ocean views from every room. This retreat truly exceeded our expectations from the moment we arrived until the sad moment we had to leave. The real highlight of Emerald... More

We just returned from a fantastic week at Emerald Beach Villa #5 and we are incredibly homesick for our vacation. The villa is spacious, spotless and well-appointed, with glorious ocean views from every room. The gardens are lush, lovely and tended with extreme care and the saltwater pool seemed to be the perfect temperature at all times! The beach feels... More

The villa at Emerald Beach #5 is fabulous - wonderful accommodation, beautiful location, on Gibbes beach on the West Coast, lovely gardens and pool. But the true highlights are Eudele the cook and Sayleen who works with her - these ladies are fantastic - great food, welcoming, always laughing and full of fun - they make the holiday.

My girlfriend and I stayed in #5 in mid November and had a fantastic vacation. We generally go on two beach vacations a year (lucky us) and more often than not stay in 5 star all inclusive resorts. We are in our mid 30's and stay active, but also like to relax on vacation. Emerald Beach was the best of... More

The villas are on one of the nicest beaches on the west coast. Lovely sandy bottom with some coral off to the side of the beach with plenty of space for lounging on the sand. The only problem is that the villas do not allow you to take the sun beds onto the beach, therefore the only option is to... More
