“Go if you can!”
Reviewed March 29, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We spent a truly unforgettable week at Culloden Cove and fell in love with the place itself and this stretch of the Jamaican coast. The villa is a great, great family getaway. We were there with another family - both with our two young children - and it couldn't have been a more ideal place in which to relax, have fun and most of all, feel right at home. The vibe here is easy going. The villa is really lovely but frankly, not too precious, which, with four kids in tow suited us.
Big highlights for us were the lovely staff and the delicious meals they served up. There's lots to do and see in this part of Jamaica but we spent a lot of time at the villa itself, lazing by the pool or kayaking around the cove.
It's not cheap but it's definitely worth it! I'd recommend Culloden Cove in a heartbeat.

“Pristine Jamaican home”
Reviewed March 7, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We just spent a magical week at this lovely beachfront home with two young children and grandparents. Our children rarely left the pool or beach except to sneak to the kitchen to see what fantastic meal was being prepared. The staff is exceptional--they are not only fantastic cooks (think lobster, jerk chicken, key lime pie), but they arranged snorkeling and fishing excursions as well as trips to the Black River and the Pelican Bar. Dion and Lily went out of their way to take care of our kids with special treats lsuch as different fruit smoothies and banana bread for snacks. The groundskeepers kept Culloden Cove immaculate and were very helpful with any tasks (cleaning fish or helping us bring up the sea kayaks) without being obtrusive. We would love to return for longer.

“Brain break and uninterpreted bliss”
Reviewed February 25, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Ok - get over the fact that the shower pressure isnt like that of London (or a plush hotel), the sand from the beach finds its way into the sitting room or the toiletries don't come from Jo Malone - you land in a place that offers stunning views, incredibly warm hospitality, beautiful beach and gardens and delicious local food. Sure next doors fence and house looks not to have seen a paint brush in a few years - but this is not a rich country in monetary terms. Instead, you have a complete lack of tourists, welcoming beaches and friendly helpful faces at every turn in the local village or in the grounds of the house. I only mention these points re luxury, so as you are not dissapointed on arrival in the house and village. But even if these are requirements for normal holidays - dont be put off - i am guilty of chasing these pleasures and found the stripped back vibes and amazing real pleasures on offer unbeatable. will be back!

“Amazing week in paradise!”

Our experience at Culloden Cove was outstanding. The villa and landscape were breathtaking, the food was amazing, and the staff were incredible. We will definitely be going back.

We were part of a large group of friends who visited Culloden Cove - our group consisted of 3 couples and 4 kids (aged 4, 3, 1 and 1).

The villa itself is located about a 10 minute cab ride away from downtown Whitehouse - it is quite secluded. There is about 50 feet of a white sand private beach, a beautiful dock and water that stays chest high on an adult for at least 40 feet out. The water is also very warm and great for swimming since it's very calm even at high tide. You might want to bring goggles (to go explore the reef right off the dock) and water shoes (to walk through some of the reefy areas).

At the top of the steps down to the ocean is the infinity pool, which we'd go into for either a change of pace or to cool down. Off the pool is a cabana area with some couches, a hammock and a few chairs. It was a great place to read or sit in the shade and enjoy the ocean.

We ate all our meals and did most of our lounging on the large, covered patio. There are couches, a couple of hanging chairs (which if you ask the toddlers were the best part of the trip) and a huge table that fit all 10 of us comfortably. You're surrounded by lush vegetation, hummingbirds and geckos. It's a great place to hang out and for the adults you'll be spending a lot of time there drinking wine, rum or red stripes. Side note: apparently the only beer you can find in Jamaica is Red Stripe or Heineken. Beer is cheap, but wine is relatively expensive compared to Canadian and especially American pricing.

The house is nice but honestly, you're not spending a lot of time in there other than to sleep. They have a large flat screen TV with satellite, which we turned on approximately once for a football game. The kitchen is nothing special, but you'll be amazed at what Dion, Gail and Lilly are able to prepare in there with seemingly basic facilities. There was a large picnic table in the living room which the kids spent a lot of time at drawing and playing.

The bedrooms upstairs are well appointed, and the AC works well. You'll have no problem sleeping at night or a quick daytime nap. There is a separate 2br/1br cottage which was great for the family of 4 staying with us, basically the only downside to that spot was that it wasn't in range of the wi-fi.

A couple of other miscellaneous points:
- There are lots of fruit trees on the property, and we were eating fresh starfruit right off the trees all week as it was in season. Pretty cool.
- The ladies will offer to take you into town to the market when they do the shopping. This is a good decision.
- The ladies are awesome. It's worth saying again.
- If you have small children it's totally worth spending a few extra dollars getting the nannies to help you out. It let the parents relax and enjoy themselves.
- For anyone worried about safety, one of the nice things about the isolation of Culloden Cove is that you're pretty far away from any tourist joints. We never felt concerned about security not only because there was an overnight guard keeping watch around the property, but also because we were so far away from typical tourist attractions.
- The grounds are meticulously maintained every day by Vincent, who has a heck of a life story. Ask him to tell you about it.
- Relax, the internet connection can be spotty but you're in paradise and can live without netflix for a few days.
- The only negative was the transport to/from the airport. Due to our large party we special booked a bus for 6 adults and 4 small children We flew into Montego Bay, and nervously waited outside the airport for about 30 minutes for our arranged bus to arrive. The drive took about 1.5 hours and took us across the island through very narrow and bumpy roads. There was no seat belts on some of the seats, and the car seats provided were very old and didn't exactly inspire confidence. Our driver was extremely polite and took the time to point out some sites along the way, but for those of you used to North American roads may find this a little nerve racking.

Andy and his staff were wonderful and the perfect place to go with kids - 2yr and 8 months. We couldn't have asked for an easier vacation - which made it that much more enjoyable. So nice that everything is just taken care of for you.

Our family of 10 enjoyed our week at Culloden Cove very much. Our kids loved playing in the pool by the ocean, and the the kayaks were used daily to paddle to the reef to snorkel. The small beach has sandy entry and is great for swimming. The villa was comfortable and staff were all very friendly. Minor issues were dealt with pleasantly and immediately by the staff and the owner. Andrew, the owner, was terrific to deal with and answered all inquiries and provided lots of information and recommendations. I wouldn't hesitate to rent from Andrew again.
