We breathed a sigh of relief after arriving here after a long flight and airport transfers with 3 cranky under 5s and a teen... good sized bedrooms all air conditioned and most importantly spotless... The kitchen was thoughtfully equipped including crockery, cooking equipment and a good sized fridge freezer with ice maker...
We pre planned and brought snacks and food with us which is important if you arrive after 8pm as the on sight supermarket is shut then...
The swimming pool/gym were very nice although we found it too hot to go in the daytime and either went early or in the cooler evenings...
I also loved the fact that it felt very safe for the kids...
Pauline the owner and Mr. R the caretaker were very responsive and on the occasion we needed to contact them, were very helpful.
Although not an essential, perhaps consider bringing a portable DVD player as that was one thing we missed having brought the kids' favourite films for the odd night in as there isn't one here! There was also only one kid's channel that worked on cable but I guess this isnt what families go on holiday to the Caribbean for, I guess!
Also be organised and plan lots of day trips so that when you return here in the evenings, it really does feel like coming home!
We would stay again...
We arrived at this beutiful villa and was met by the owner and housekeeper who were lovely.
We stayed a week and didn't want to leave the villa, it was home from home and more.
My brother was so impressed that he made enquiries to purchase a plot on the new phase 3 being built as i type.
We all recommend richmond estate and this particular villa for a glorious stay.
My cousins and I stayed in the Serenity Villa for 4 nights and 5 days. The villa was really nice, the decor was modern with an island feel. The landscape was beautiful. We really enjoyed the banana trees in the backyard. We received great care from prepared meals, transportation around Jamaica, good house keeping to whatever we needed or wanted. We really enjoyed our stay and we will be returning for another vacation. Special thanks to Ms. Pauline, Mr. Rockhead and Ms. Correen who made our stay wonderful and one to remember.
We spent seven days with our two children and it was the best vacation we've ever had. The pictures don't do this home justice, it's so spacious and clean. Very well put together and located in a very safe gated community. My daughter did not want to leave because she loved being there so much. It's really perfect for kids too because there is great outdoor areas where they can play, run and have lots of fun. Especially loved the pool and the playground. It's so cool that we hardly had to use the AC which each room has. Be prepared to purchase groceries or you can eat out. I would recommend renting a car to get easily to local restaurants but I'm sure that taxis are easy to connect with. Really great management team and staff too, very easy to talk to and very helpful. ps the roxborogh restaurant down the street has great food.
The home was just as advertised. The community was safe and clean. My family had a great time and plan to stay there again.
The unit was okay. A little bit older and unkept than we had expected. The owner was nice enough to provide our family with a pot that we needed for cooking however most of the applicances were old and rusted. The air conditioner worked well in the unit and tv was okay. Major drawback was the lack of a dryer that would have made it easier for us to clean our baby's clothes.
Mr. Rockhead was very accommodating and helpful and really made our stay the best he could.
I would definitely recommend staying here with a family and children as the family's safety and security was paramount and this exceeded our expectations. The property was as advertised and the beds where extremely comfortable and the children enjoyed having there own rooms and bathroom to share. The open plan dinning made perfect for socialising and relaxing at the same time being able to have the front door open incorporating the veranda into that space. Overall the property was nice and our expectations were met and we would definitely book to stay here again.:-) Also want to say a massive thank you to Mr Donavan who was there to answer to our every need extremely helpful nothing can't do for you, nothing was never a problem made the holiday just run so smooth.
Look forward to booking our next visit
