Jamaica Villa Vacation Reviews


Submitted: Jan 30, 2014

Prior to our trip, we debated staying at an all-inclusive resort versus renting a private home. By far we made the right choice in renting Ocean View Villa. We were 11 in our party including my two girls, ages 9 and 12 and we went to celebrate my 40th birthday. We all had an amazing time, relaxing by the pool at the villa, exploring the local beach, shopping, snorkeling, and my favorite, visiting the Blue Hole. The staff at the villa were all very professional and friendly. Millie is a fantastic cook and was our “go to person” making sure we had everything we needed. Stacey, Madri and Ricardo were a lot of fun and each worked very hard to make sure all of our needs were met. They did truly feel like family and we were all sad to say goodbye so soon. The owner arranged for us to have a driver for the week. He was absolutely a wonderful man. He was always on time to pick us up and made sure we were not taken advantage of in terms of paying for tours or items in the market. He also gave a history lesson of the island during our drives and pointed out significant places. What I loved most about staying in the villa was the cultural experience. From start to finish the owner of the property was always quick to get back to me with any questions or concerns. I can speak for all 11 of us, that we would highly recommend this experience to others.

The Importance of Reviews for Vacation Rentals

With the Internet becoming an ever increasing aspect of our everyday lives the ability to share information has become instantaneous. This has a huge effect on the vacation rental industry.

It’s easy for people to find rentals and to leave reviews of places they’ve stayed online. This combined with a competitive market that gives travelers lots of choice means it is extremely important that you get reviews for your property and these reviews need to be positive. If you don’t have reviews or many that are negative it is highly likely that a person will move on to a property that has already established itself as a good place to rent. Read more
