Thank you for your comments, however the Villa has not been rented for over 2yrs. Please tell me when you stayed here. I don't know who you are & i have not received the type of feedback from any guest that would warrant this review.

It's all about what you're looking for...if you want to experience a true Jamaican residence away from the resorts and away from the hustle and bustle, Carousel Villa might be for you! House is older but very well maintained. Plumbing has quirks but we absolutely loved the layout, the staff and just the "homey" feel of everything. 12 adults and 5 kids -- all had a great time! Jennifer is very detailed oriented and Joe's fried chicken is the bomb. Blue kept us safe and the other Jennifer always had a huge smile.

Our host Jennifer, her warm and kind staff Joe, Blue and Ms. Murphy became like an extension of our family. They were as involved as you wished them to be. All you needed to do was ask for what you wanted or needed and if it was possible, they tried their best to accommodate us. Joe was the most kind and attentive to our 89 year old grandmother which allowed us to travel about knowing that she was well attended to at the Villa. It was so nice to feel pampered, relaxed and stress free. Please keep in mind that Jamaica is a third world country so leave your first world expectations at home and go with the flow. We were a party of eight which included two grandmothers both over 85 years of age, and our 4 daughters ages ranging from 17 to 21 years of age. The wonderful and unique design of the Villa cannot be effectively conveyed by pictures or my words....you simply must go and visit for yourself if you are fortunate enough to do so. It is simply beautiful! The Bogenvilla flowering shrubs was reminiscent for my mum, of Australia. We enjoyed horseback riding, swimming in the pool, a catamaran ride, native foods and more. Our driver Mr. Wallace, recommended by our host, was a champion of the Jamaican roads which can be challenging. I would advise utilizing his skills. All members of our family used words like: "Perfect", "This Villa was Wonderful", "The best vacation ever", to describe our stay at Carousel. We hope that we are welcome back year after year as this has become our new "go to" place on the island of Jamaica. Thank you Jennifer(our host), Ms. Murphy, Joe, Blue (our security guard) who is also an amazing wood carving artist, Mr. Wallace (our driver), Nick and Robert (our horseback guides), for facilitating this most memorable family vacation.

Our family of 9 with adult children and grandchildren stayed at Carousel Villa in February, 2015. Jenn was great with communication before our trip and made sure the sleeping arrangements were perfect, especially for the family with a 2 year old and a 4 year old. All four rooms were spacious and comfortable with ensuite bathroooms, as well as AC and fans. We loved that there was enough space to spread out in the villa so that during the late evenings and early mornings some of us could be awake while others were sleeping without having to tip toe around. With little kids who needed naps, we could be at the villa, away from the beach, and still enjoy the sunshine and swimming pool. Miss Jennifer, Joe, and Blue were the staff who helped us during our stay. With them we enjoyed good conversation, excellent meals, and very personal attention. Jenn and her employees all made sure that if we had any requests for food, drinks, or information they were quickly taken care of. We used Eric Wallace for our airport transfers and he also drove us a few times during the week. If he was not available, he arranged for another driver to help us out. The transportation was another aspect that made this a very relaxing vacation for all of us. Thank you very much for the wonderful memories Jenn, Joe, Miss Jennifer, and Blue!!

My wife and I have been to Jamaica over 25 times. We have stayed at all types of accommodations from AIs to yards. We would have to say that the Carousel Villa was the best of all. We stayed at the villa from September 18 -26, 2010. The owner, Jennifer Sprauer, was most attentive and helpful with all the planning. She made sure that what we requested to be at the villa for our arrival was there. This included our first few meals and beer and liquor. We had the pleasure of meeting Jennifer while we were there. Due to a change in our plans, Jennifer was nice enough to allow us to stay an extra night at the villa. The Villa The villa is exactly what you see on the website. This rarely happens. The master bathroom is huge. The A/C works fine. The pool was nice and clean. All the grounds are beautiful. The Staff Millie and Oswald have been working at the villa for over 40 years. You know they are doing things right with that kind of tenure. We arrived late in the afternoon and met the staff, Millie, Oswald, John and Angela. My wife was looking for some Jacks to take to our Grandkids. Angela found some in Clarkstown for her. When Millie heard of this, she gave us an old classic set that she had. You cannot find them like that anymore. It is the little things like this that make the staff special. Angela kept the room spotless. Oswald was always right on top of everything. The staff is very good at being there when you need them, but give you all the privacy you could want. The security man, Blue, is great and we had many evening of fun conversations. Blue even brought me some sweet sop from his yard. John was available to get whatever we needed, from money exchanges to more beer and rum. On our last evening we had a dinner with all the staff. It was a special evening. The Food The food was great. Millie is a great cook. It was like having your Jamaican Grandmother cooking for you. We discussed our dinning plans with her and everything went off without a hitch. We had fresh lobster and fish on several occasions. Millie’s deserts were awesome. Miscellaneous We were able to have several of our Jamaican friends over for dinner and swimming. It was very nice to share this special place with them. The beach was nice and hassle free. We made friends with almost all of the local vendors. The golf cart ride to the beach was fun. It was also nice to be able to stop at the store for little items. We highly recommend Carousel Villa to anyone. We plan on staying many times in the future. Russ and Subrina
