Our stay at the big white villa
Overall the big white villa was a nice stay I just think everything such as the furniture is outdated.... we had to pay $45.00 because a leg just fell completely off of the chair... no wrong moves my friend just sat down and the leg came off... the housekeeper, cook and Erroyl the chauffeur were great people that helped us well....
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and are very sorry that you felt compelled to write a negative review due to being asked to repair a chair that your party broke. Thank you for you comments regarding the Big White Villa Team. We will ensure that these are passed on. One Love
Great Villa with Amazing Staff
The Big White Villa was the perfect size for our group of 12 and offered plenty of space for everyone. The house manager, Aretha, along with the grounds keeper, Sam, met us upon arrival and were very friendly and welcoming. All of the rooms offer an A.C. Unit however the unit in the master bedroom did not work. Luckily, there was a nice breeze the majority of the nights so between that and a couple fans we were able to sleep comfortably. The hot water heater was also an issue. Everyone got about 5min of hot water for a shower before it turned cold no matter how much we tried to stagger shower times. Again, we made it work but when paying so much for a vacation, I didn’t expect to be taking cold showers. I can’t say enough about Kevin, the chef, he was amazing! We asked him to make traditional Jamaican meals and he did not disappoint. Errol and Errol chauffeured us around and were very resourceful when when planning activities and answering any questions we had about the island. It was truely a pleasure getting to know them. Taneisha , the housekeeper, was so sweet and attentive during our stay. The beach is just a short walk away however it is very Rocky as the pictures show. There is an amazing little restaurant called “Sugarpot Ruins” about a 10 min walk down the beach that offers an absolutely beautiful beach though. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again!
Wonderful staff! Enormous amounts of room!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Big White Villa. Kevin was a wonderful chef. Sam & Leticia were so warm and helpful. The rooms were large and gave us all enough room to relax. I would recommend this rental to anyone.
We are happy the holiday makers enjoyed their stay at the villa. As we have recently done some updating
Of which we are very pleased with.
Beautiful home at a great location would become perfect with some maintenance and cleaning
We had a great vacation in Jamaica. It’s a lovely place. The people are friendly and helpful. The drive down from Montego Bay to the Big White Villa was smooth. Our ride was through Travel Jamaica Tours and Errol Bowen who drove us down entertained us and kept us laughing all the way. He is awesome. He and Errol Williams did all our chauffeuring during our stay. They were a pleasure to work with.
The staff at the Big White Villa were friendly and resourceful. The property manager worked with us to prestock food and supplies before our arrival. She was present along with the staff when we arrived. We love Kevin, our Chef! He whipped up delicious meals and accommodated our preferences and diet restrictions cheerfully. He went out of his way to help with other needs in the house as well. A shout out to Sam as well. He was a quiet gentle presence who unfailingly stepped up as needed.
The house itself is a spacious and airy place that easily accommodated our group of 14. The location is beautiful. The landscaping is lush and tropical. We enjoyed the pool. The sights and sounds of the ocean are close by. The neighborhood is quiet and secure. All our excursions and shopping or dining trips were a short drive away.
A little more attention to maintenance and housekeeping would make the Big White Villa near perfect. But for them the small annoyances would have been absent. As such it falls short of the ‘luxury’ tag. Nevertheless all in all we enjoyed our Jamaica experience. The food. The sights. And most of all the friendly folk!!
Great location, beautiful view, friendly staff ... a little dated, and some maintenance issues
We had some difficulty finding the Villa, the address provided did not appear on Google map, the property is marketed as Ocho Rios (which is largely in St. Ann) but it is actually located just outside of Ocho Rios in St. Mary. My other guests had similar experiences with finding the Villa.
The actual accommodations were adequate, we had 5 bedrooms in the main house and 2 bedrooms accessible from outside by the pool area. They were good size rooms with enough amenities to be comfortable.
We met the maintenance person, the house keeper, private chef and manager on the first day. Everyone was friendly and happy to assist in making our vacation enjoyable. The view from the upstairs balcony was amazing. The beach (while quite stony and challenging to access via a steep stair) was generally okay.
The property is not air-conditioned in the common areas, each bedroom has an air-condition unit, however, we had to keep the doors open to maintain a reasonable temperature in the living room, kitchen, and upstairs lounge areas. Having the doors open also meant mosquitoes which were a bit annoying.
There were a few maintenance issues (refrigerator beeped 24 hrs per day because the Freezer did not work, blinds in master bath were broken and could not close, door on shower was broken etc. etc.) but nothing that was a fatal flaw.
The chef did an amazing job and cooked some really delicious local meals for us, however, I think the house cleaning had a bit to be desired and the dust did a number on my sinuses.
The Villa is also located near a public park area and there was loud music which played every night during our four night stay.
Honestly, we had a good time in Jamaica, we visited Dunn's river falls, the town in Ocho Rios, enjoyed local fruits, and other amenities. The Villa met our needs for somewhere to sleep (as we were out for most of the days) however, I wouldn't describe it as "luxurious".
We had a group of 12, there was ample space for everyone and no one really complained. It is a great villa in a great location, it just needs a few tweaks in the maintenance area and I would give it at least 4 stars.
Die Villa liegt nur 3,2 km vom Zentrum von Ocho Rios entfernt, wo 1658 am Rio Nuevo die letzte Schlacht zwischen britischen und spanischen Truppen um Jamaika stattfand. In und um Ocho Rios finden Sie viele andere berühmte Attraktionen wie Dunn’s River Falls, wo Sie im Fluss schwimmen & Höhlen & Mini-Whirlpools hinter dem Wasserfall finden können. Verpassen Sie nicht Dolphin Cove, wo Sie mit Delfinen, Haien und Rochen schwimmen können! Mystic Mountain liegt 213 m über dem Meeresspiegel in einem Regenwald und verfügt über eine Bob-Achterbahn und bietet Touren mit der Luftseilbahn über dem Baldachin des Regenwaldes. Bei der Prospect Plantation Tour erfahren Sie, wie eine Plantage arbeitet und können Fahrten mit einer offenen Kutsche machen, auf Pferden & Kamelen reiten und es gibt auch eine wunderbare Schmetterling-Voliere & Sie können sogar Strauße füttern. Besuchen Sie auf jeden Fall Golden Eye, das Haus, wo Ian Fleming lebte und alle 13 originalen James Bond-Bücher geschrieben hat.
