We stayed here in February of 2014 for a week. We have travelled all over the world and this was one of our best vacations ever for several reasons. First of all, James and Mary are the perfect hosts and strike just the right balance between ensuring your visit is perfect and giving you your privacy. They are full of suggestions and went with us on some of our outings. It was like having local friends who knew all the best things to see, do, and eat. Second, the villas are comfortable and the resort is located in a simply gorgeous part of Jamaica. The other guests are part of the fun. We also felt perfectly safe. I went walking alone in the hills every morning and encountered many locals who always gave me a friendly greeting and wanted to make sure I was okay (apparently walking for the pleasure of walking is not a local pastime). There was no pestering of tourists like in other spots in Jamaica where I have visited. Third, having a cook was wonderful and Brenda helped us try all sorts of new foods and local treats. I am a picky and not adventurous eater and I really enjoyed everything she made. I would have never have tried these foods in a hotel restaurant (e.g. curried goat which was delicious). Finally, we balanced hanging out and doing nothing with kayaking in the blue lagoon, visting Monkey Island, swimming in underground caves in Reach Falls, and driving around the island with Warren with the Rasta music blasting. It was the perfect way to spend a week in paradise.
