“Total relaxation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014

If you want some where for total relaxation this is the place.
I have been here twice and it still has that calm charm to it, if you are looking for a modern bling bling place this is not for you, its a great 1900 century villa with some of it original charm.
Pool area lovely, chief was a god send at minimal tip US$30.
The only down side breakfast is toast coffee and tea, on the plus side tea is straight from the lovely garden.
Keep it up Garden House !!!!

Nice pool area, nice gardens, nice long drive way, nice staff, quiet corner of Jamaica.
The breakfast is toast and coffee, tea the maid will make you any thing you want if you buy it for a small tip, $1000 ja I paid for 3 days £6 cheap and well worth it.
Paid deposit for electric gate key $5000 ja.... not advertised anywhere,
Apart from that all good.

Had a very relaxing stay at Garden house. Faithlin that works at the house is a real sweetheart! Always with a smile she made us feel really welcome, and she was always helpful as well.
We used the kitchen and made our own breakfast etc, and it was fine.
Need to mention that there are no TV in any room, but you are free to use the one in the living room. There is a fan in the room but no A/C.

This place is truly beautiful. The gardens are amazing and the views are breathtaking. We were made to feel part of the family by the owners and staff and I couldn't have asked for more.
Sitting by the pool watching the sun rise over the ocean in pure peacefulness, followed by delicious home cooked Jamaican food...paradise!
The beach is only a short drive away, crystal clear waters with plenty of fish to look at and Dunns River Falls is definitely worth a visit.
We will definitely be back with more of us next time!

Garden House is truly a Tropical Paradise. We stayed here for our Honeymoon as this place was recommended by a friend. The photos they showed us of their stay did not do this place justice!!! Our host, Ken & Rev Garrick's and the staff made our stay such a memorable experience. I can't rave enough about all of them!
The rooms was clean, the resort was lovely. The gardens we manicured and the view of Ocho Rios from any of the balconies or infinity pool were breath taking.
Some of the staff took us out to the non touristy areas and showed us where locals eat real jerk and where you can have a massage on the beach over looking the sea!!! There is also a beautiful waterfall (Brains Falls) that runs down the side of the property that could rival Dunn's River Falls. This is well maintained and easy accessible by any fitness levels.
We have booked for our 5 year anniversary and look forward to seeing everyone at Garden House on our next trip. Thanks you all for providing this wonderful experience. Neil & Roz

Room Tip: The Master Suite on the top floor has an amazing view over Ocho Rios!!

I had the most amazing time here and will be forever grateful.. Such a beautiful, spacious house but I spent most of my time in the gardens.. Eating mangos and avocados straight from the trees and dipping in and out of the pool :D The staff were friendly and helpful and pointed me in the directions of local spots (some of which I would never of found in a tour guide) I went on my own as a single female and made friends with the staff and locals with no problems along the way. Would definitely bring my daughter next time as it's also perfect for family's. Writing this is making me want to book a flight back there right now!!

The views, the food, the people, the sun! What more can you ask for?
So glad we found this idyllic corner of the Earth, as we're now planning to return to get married at the Garden House as soon as we can.
Great for kids, great for adults, was even taught how to cook Jamaican style!
Having stayed at large hotels in the past, to go such a long way and stay in a family run villa was something of a gamble, but we are so glad we did. The kids always had something to do, and the adults had every opportunity to relax in the beautiful grounds, or enjoy the beautiful landscape.
Beautiful, beautiful place, can't wait to go back!
Go if you can, you won't regret it.
