Guestbook comments from the owner

We booked the Villa 6 months in advance, and we were not disappointed. My wife and 3 college age children attended. This was absolutely the best vacay we have taken as a family. The home is a high quality and very luxurious. the linens, beds, towels, and furnishings are also very high quality. The Villa is located within a gated / 24 hour guarded community, and is easily the nicest place in the development. The beach has firm sand and no rocks in the water like other places in Jamaica we have visited. The staff was wonderful with Gloria being an excellent chef. She can cook anything you like and is a real pro in the kitchen. Lobster is cheap ($6 for an 8 oz. tail). Johnu, (property maintenance / security guy) also doubled as a bartender, aside from his maintenance and security duties. he sleeps onsite in a detached casita on the property and is there 24/7. The pool was always perfectly clean and great temp, while the yard and home were well maintained at all times. There is also a driver on call 24/7 for taking trips into Montego bay or Ocho Rios for excursions. highly recommend swimming with the "glow fish" excursion. The owners of this Villa live nearby (30 minutes away) and really know what they are doing, and were very hands on anytime we needed anything. They also arranged for a masseuse to come out and also had jet skis delivered to the house one day. we also visited magic Mountain (neat bobsledding ride, great ziplining!, and a "15 minute "ski lift" ride to the top of the mountain thru some serious trees and vegetation- also a great restaurant and pool onsite.) One of the coolest things Deeana arranged was a day on a large catamaran for snorkeling and lunch on a private beach. The crew was excellent, and it was an amazing day trip. Highly recommend that. there is a cool bar that is a short walk just outside the development. The internet worked great at the source - in the pool table / game room area, but was weak in other parts of the home. not a big deal as we were happy to leave the tech behind most of the trip. If you do have to get some work done during the trip, it's plenty for that. Gotta give props to Deanna as well. She is an excellent driver, and a great source for fun things to do. They have a very nice and comfortable van for transport. We will definitely be back. Thank you Rory and Deanna!!



PS. THE Carport / covered parking area would be a great place for a basketball hoop!!

Paradise in St. Ann

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to review an experience that left you in tears as you were leaving. The Villa is is simply beautiful: from the pool, the furnishings, the landscape, and the view of the ocean. This was a first class experience.

Let's start with the staff. Gloria is a first class cook- every meal for 6 days was made to perfection... and you choose when you want them. Ms. Jhenell kept the Villa cleaned and did all of the laundry while tending to my wife and daughter's every need. Johno watched over my family and kept the pool and the grounds immaculate. Deana, the property owner was so pleasant every time we spoke with her. She had genuine interest in our family and what we needed to make our stay first class. More importantly than all these things... these individuals became our friends. The only excursion we took was a private catamaran tour with Andrew from Vagabond charters, where once again, Andrew and his staff watched over my family as if we were their family. The catamaran tour is a must! Glass bottom kayaks! I've never heard of that : ). The grocery store will deliver your food so you never have to leave the property should you decide you just want to relax. Local fisherman will boat up to the beach and sell fresh fish, Let Gloria do the negotiating, she will get you a deal. I've been home for 24 hours and my family and I have been in constant discussion about this being our favorite vacation.

Our vacation was a relaxation vacation, but Deana has a minibus and can take you anywhere you want to go on your trip. We would have done more excursions, but who wants to leave such a beautiful property and good friends...

Still Family- June 2017. Grandmother, husband, wife, 14yo daughter, 11yo daughter, 4 yo daughter

PS. My 3 yo turned 4 on the first day of our trip and Deana made sure we had a birthday cake for her upon arrival at the Sun Kissed Villa.

Book this Villa! You won't regret it...

Little piece of heaven...

  • 5 of 5

Sunkissed Villa is like a little piece of heaven, located in a quiet gated beachfront community. The house and staff were beyond our expectations. Jhono, the groundskeeper/security guard stayed on site and took care of our outdoor needs including inflating all the crazy rafts we brought. He stayed at night and locked up the house. On our final night, he made an incredible bonfire on the beach. Gloria is an amazing cook and prepared the most wonderful meals, many of them local Jamaican dishes. Maryann stayed busy keeping the rooms straight and the towels clean and dry.

We spent most of our time outside the house on the lovely covered patio drinking coffee and watching the bay. The house comes with paddleboards and kayaks which we used to venture out to the reefs at the opening of the bay. Mornings were spent doing yoga on the beach, afternoons lounging by the pool and evenings playing pool inside the house or card games at the outside tables.

Deana was extremely helpful in arranging all our transportation and adventures during our stay. She even booked a private catamaran charter for our group with Vagabond Charters. Andrew, the captain and his crew were fun and very attentive to our safety. They got in the water with us and even dove down to find sea urchins for us to enjoy. Cleveland our driver for the week was friendly and full of great island information. He was always up for whatever adventure we wanted, sometimes stopping along the way to view interesting monuments of Jamaican history. He escorted us to the supermarket, flea market, helped purchase our tickets at Dunns River Falls and even stayed while we ate our only meal out at Sharkies on the beach.

We were 7 women travelling together and could not have felt more pampered and safe. This is the place to stay if you want to relax and enjoy the company of friends/family. We were sad to leave this beautiful house and wonderful staff. Wish the trip could have been longer!!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Spent 6 nights at Sun Kissed and loved every minute of it. My wife and i took our 3 teenage boys and 4 of their friends (yes, 7 teenage boys between 17 and 19). The staff was amazing. Gloria is a great cook, Marion took care of making sure house was clean, made beds, ensured we had fresh towels daily, and Johno rocked. Johno kept an eye on the kids in the evening, was up at the crack of dawn cleaning the pool and taking care of the yard, and anything else we needed. My lessons learned were to make sure to work with Deana way in advance for your plans while in Jamaica. Ask her lots of questions to make sure you know what to expect. Also, make sure to really plan out your grocery list while there. We actually ran out of bottled water twice, but it was only for a few hours each time. For anyone planning a trip here you will truly love it. Make sure to do the river tubing trip on the Rio Bueno right next door. We did this on the first full day there and my boys loved interacting with our guide, Alex and Leroy daily throughout our stay.

Saint Ann Jamaica Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Well, we've been home 48 hours and we are trying to figure out how to go back... first and foremost, the Villa and the grounds are first class. Rory and Deana spared no expense making this place extravagant.

We were traveling with my wife, 3 daughters, 14,11, and 3, as well as my mother.

I really don't know where to start, except this was the best vacation experience we have ever had. We have spent time in Europe and all over the Caribbean and the US.

Deana (she's awesome!) picked us up at the airport and let us pick up a few extra groceries prior to arriving at the Villa. Once we arrived we were greeted by three amazing individuals. Gloria, Jhenell, and Johno.

Ms. Gloria cooked for us every day, and everything we had was amazing. She would ask every morning what we wanted for that day. Her curry shrimp is extraordinary. My kids wanted to bring her home with us.

Ms. Jhenell took care of laundry and housekeeping as well as helped us keep an eye on our little one around the pool.

Johno is the groundskeeper and the jack of all trades. My 14 year old wanted a coconut and 5 minutes later... he shows up with two. He's a great late night converser : )

The most wonderful part of this experience was the staff including Rory and Deana. I feel like we made a new family in the six days we were at Sun Kissed.

As others have stated, the internet is spotty sometimes, but there is so much to do from the magnificent pool, ping pong, kayaking. It was awesome to see my kids not on the phone every time I looked up.

Deana also arranged a private catamaran tour with Vagabond Charters. This was the coolest excursion. Andrew caters the charter to whatever experience you would like, and the day is yours until dark. This is a must if you are staying at the Villa, and it's very reasonably priced.

There is so much more that I would like to add, but I only have a few characters left. If you are looking for a very intimate beach home experience where the little details make all the difference, then the Sun Kissed Villa is for you.

P.S. my 3 year old turned 4 the day we arrived and with very little notice, Rory had a birthday cake delivered so we could celebrate.

It's the little things that matter most!

Big Ups to the wonderful people at the Sun Kissed Villa...
