First VRBO rental
We spent 2 weeks at Whistling Villa and it was amazing. We arrived much later at night than was anticipated but was still made to feel welcomed by Delores and Chris. The villa had a homey and private feel. We felt very safe at the location. The Manager, Delores was very responsive whenever we needed to contact her. The housekeeper, Ms Dorothy was very pleasant and Chris, the caretaker felt like a part of the family. Everyone was pleasant and accommodating without being intrusive. The grounds are well kept, the AC units worked well (and it was really hot), and the pool was beautiful and clean. My first VRBO rental experience was very pleasant and we will definitely be telling our friends about Whistling Villa.
Thanks again for staying at Whistling Villa.I am glad you enjoyed your stay and we are looking forward to having you and your friends at the villa again.
One of the best places I've ever stayed.
I have just returned home to the U.K after spending 1 month at whistling villa August 2018. Where should I start well the two members of staff there Chris the grounds keeper and Miss Curry who was our cook/cleaner are two of the most nicest people I have ever met, nothing was too much trouble for them both to help out with. The food that Miss Curry prepared for us on a daily basis was second to none it was absolutely delicious. The grounds keeper is always there to help out at a moment's notice, he kept the grounds and the pool exceptionally clean and tidy on a daily basis. The villa itself is very spacious and comfortable, the living area is very big and each of the bedrooms are very big and comfortable with the added benefit of Air Conditioning especially after spending days out in the red hot sunshine or just lazing around the pool, which is very nice just to be able to open the doors and have a cool refreshing dip in the pool. The villa has got fruit tree's where you can just go and pick a piece of fruit from which are delicious. The private beach in which the villa has exclusive use of which is only a couple of minutes drive away is beautiful or you have the public beach at the bottom of the road. The villa's location is close to local amenities and tourist attractions like dolphin cove where you can swim and interact with them which I definitely recommend in doing, you have mystic mountain and bobsled which is another fabulous place to visit. You can purchase day/nighttime passes at local hotel resorts like Jewels resort in runaway bay which has a small but very enjoyable water Park attached to it, with the passes you get full access to entire
complexes except for the room's where all your food and drink are included with the passes. Whistling Villa is located up in the Cardiff Hall Estate area which is very peaceful after spending days out in like Ocho Rios or Montego Bay. Ocho Rios is a lovely town to visit for the day where you have a beach loads of shops and places to eat like Margherita Vil. We went to the Kool Runnings water park for the day which is approximately 2 and half hours drive. The villa has the added benefit of having a driver which you can hire for days out to take you places. We hired a car for the full month which i would definitely recommend in doing to allow you the freedom of going places when and where you want I would definitely go back again and i would recommend this villa to anyone. Overall a beautiful place
It was great to have your family at the Villa for the month of Aug 2018.
Thank you for sharing your experience.
I hope your family and friends will visit again.
definitely will return to this Home away from home
If you would like to stay at place away from home that feels like home. This is the ideal place for you! Affordable, private and very clean. The Villa is in a quiet area, as well as a gated property with a respectable and friendly young man who keeps the villa grounds looking splendid - not to mention the private pool where you can go for a morning swim or anytime because it is yours to cool off whenever you like! There is a deck with a table and chairs to sit and enjoy a meal or just a quick lunch. The villa is very roomy with the comfort of air conditioning and also a kitchen to cook your meals or there is also a cook/cleaner you can hire at an affordable price. I have stayed at this villa both times i have traveled to Jamaica and i would most definately stay there many more times as i feel safe as well as comfortable. put up your feet and enjoy your vacation with no worries - no problem!
Thank you for sharing the experience of your stay at Whistling Villa.
I hope you and your family and friends will be back soon.
Perfect Location & Villa is a home away from home.
This is the second stay at this villa and I would recommend it to anyone whether you are travelling with family or friends.
Beds are big and comfortable. Each room has A/C, private bathrooms and privacy locks.
Staff here are very welcoming and always on hand for any type of needs. Dorothy can cook like a chef and she is always willing to help whether it's with laundry, or a babysitter.
The pool is great and always clean to use when you feel like a refreshing swim.
Will definitely be visiting again.
I appreciate you and your family returning to Whistling Villa again.
I 'm happy that you all enjoyed your stay and I hope to see you back at the villa soon.
My husband and I stayed at Whistling Villa for ten days in July 2012. Everything was wonderful and we couldn't have asked for a better vacation, especially given the price point.
The pool was well maintained, as were the grounds, and we spent many lazy days out in the sun or shade by the pool. The bed was easily the most comfortable I have ever slept in in all my life. The villa was clean and tidy, which is important to us.
Whitsling Villa is a close drive (about 15 minutes) to Ocho Rios and is in the centre of Runaway Bay. You're never far away from everything you need.
The real jewel of this hidden treasure is the staff. Miss Joyce was so welcoming, kind, and accommodating. The prepared meals were second to none and it was so nice to have authentic Jamaican home cooking. Chris did an exceptional job keeping the grounds and pool maintained during our stay. We wanted privacy, which is why we chose a villa, but the second we needed something both of them seemed to know exactly when to appear. They truly made our stay a memorable one. Delores, our driver, was also great. All we had to do was call and she was there to help us with any errands we needed. Not only did she drive us, but often she'd accompany us to help us find the best deals, etc. We could not have asked for better people while on our vacation.
I would recommend Whistling Villa to all my friends and family. We've been raving about it since we returned home. We look forward to another vacation next year.
