Villa Reviews:
“We golfed, rode, rafted, dined, explored. You went all-out to make sure our first trip to Jamaica was a very special experience. See you next April!”~
 ~ Newfields, NH
 
“Quite simply, it’s fabulous.”
~ Richmond, VA
 
“We want to thank you so much! You didn’t so much as send us on vacation as introduce us to a new circle of friends. Molly’s line was that this was a true ‘all inclusive’, as it included so much more. Drambuie was wonderful — very ‘Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous’; there’s absolutely nothing like Mr. P’s cooking under a full moon overlooking MoBay. Pat is a wonderful host, very interesting and funny guy. He made sure we went to church with him before we left (down at the bottom of the hill) and it was a very moving experience, even meeting the Minister of Tourism. Carolyn took Molly and me to swim with the manatees and ‘radiate’ ourselves at Milk River Bath. Thanks again for a fascinating insider’s look at a beautiful country!”
