We had an excellent stay in Ocho. We were greeted and shown the property as soon as we arrived. It was emaculant, a beautiful home, extremely well kept and even smelled amazing. We had a large group the owner arranged transportation from the airport for those who needed. Taffi kept everything in order (and we had alot of children!). She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area. She was a joy to have during our stay and we will all miss her!
This place is nothing short of Awesome!!!!! The pics really dont show the true Gem of this villa, the cook Taffy was great, warm personal and made us feel right at home. The host Charmaine/Joan are wonderful, they made sure every one of our needs were met without being pushy. The house is open, airy ,very clean and gives the feel of a second home. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are really comfortable! The villa also has amazing views, perfect house for entertaining, spending time with the family and taking great photos . The beach is 10 minutes away. 15 minutes to Dunns river falls, shopping and restaurants. Just a beautiful home in a very quiet gated community. Thanks Joan for providing me and my girls the perfect place for a Bday get away! WE WILL BE BACK!
I spent 5 wonderful days at Vista Views near beautiful Ocho Rios. The house is stunning and overlooks the Caribbean Sea. The home was clean and Paul (the housekeeper) was extremely helpful connecting us with transportation and tour operators. It was excellent visiting the beautiful attractions in the area and then being able to cool off in the pool on the back terrace anytime we wanted! I would highly recommend this property to anyone truly looking to experience the real Jamaica
This is a lovely stay, about a 10 minute drive along the coast from Ochi Rios. The curb appeal starts as you turn off the highway into the community, and are greeted by security guards 24/7. The gated open and you begin your ascent into the hills. All the houses are gorgeous, and you feel like you're in a movie. You're wondering which villa is yours, when you are it: high up on the hill looking down on the ocean. Private transport can be arranged through the villa staff (probably the best way to get around), or since the community is right off the main highway, it was pretty easy to catch a bus or taxi. We also noticed a rental car service at the bottom of the hill, but we did not use their services. Overall it was pretty easy to get where we had to go. The rooms are excellent and the private pool is terrific. From the pool deck you can look down on the ocean. There is an inner patio and an outer patio - The inner patio is a great place to take meals. The meals in the dining room are good and very relaxed atmosphere. The food was absolutely fantastic. We bought all our food at the market, and Miss Nicky prepared some delicious meals. Our favourite was The ackee and codfish with festivals for breakfast. The staff were terrific especially Paul, who went out of her way to ensure that we were enjoying our vacation. The only hitch we had during our stay was a power outage caused by a tropical storm. However, the villa has a generator which kicked in within 30s of losing power. The generator can be loud, but it was better than being without power! The last night we had a candlelight dinner by the pool which was truly very romantic. Even without a large group, having the fully staffed private villa to ourselves made us feel like celebrities. 10/10 would return again or recommend to any traveller.
My other half and I arrived at VISTA Del Mar on May 26 2017 for a one week stay. We were met by Paul and Ms Daphne who were very warm and welcoming. They informed us of places to visit in Ocho Rios. We had an amazing view poolside of Ocho Rios. We had an even better view from our bedroom balcony (master bedroom) of the clear blue water. Our bed was a King sized comfy bed, we felt right at home lol. As of now, when visiting Jamaica this will definitely be our home away from home.
