We spent a week at Cannon Cottage, Silver Sands (near Falmouth) on Jamaica's north shore Feb. 11 to 18th. The villa was well-cared for, very clean and tastefully decorated. The bedrooms were spacious. The grounds were breathtaking; beautiful hot tub with waterfall in the private backyard, lovingly cared-for gardens, well-lighted. The front porch was a terrific spot to relax in the hammock or read in a lounge chair. I loved that the home was situated on a hill; the view and breeze was refreshing and it felt very private. Great proximity to the beach. Lorna the cook was easy going and genuine in making our stay comfortable and easy. She did a great job accommodating our 9 and 7 year old girls' food allergies. Erica the housekeeper did all our laundry, paid careful attention to the cleaning and was quick to help us whenever needed. The beach was soft sand and wide and the water great for boogie boarding. Snorkeling was good out on the reef (went with Errol's boatman Mustaff at $15 US each). Silver Sands feels very safe. Karen Sangster, the owner, was genuine in her desire to make our stay the best it could be. We booked directly with her.
