Beautiful Home With Friendly Helpful Staff

  • 5 of 5

This was my husbands dream of returning to Jamaica the home of his youth. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Dell made delicious Jamaican meals. Jason reomended and arranged travel adventures. We traveled with our adult son with autism and everyone was accommodating. We loved our trip and would not hesitate to recommend this rental to others traveling to beautiful Jamaica.

Especially happy that Jason was able to take you all around to show the entire family where Brian grew up and went to school and all other excursions. Please come back again and enjoy the land of your husbands birth.

Beautiful villa will definitely stay again

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at villa with 9 friends for my 25th birthday and loved it. The villa was so beautiful and clean and the staff where also helpful. The food was great at times it did take a little long to be ready. I guess this was due to that there was 10 of us in total about from that the food was good. The rooms are super clean and the cleaner cleans every morning. My only complaint where the was not hot water after the first night but we never cared cause it was so hot anyway. Jason was super nice and understanding when we complained about the wifi and came over and tried to fix it. What people need to understand Jamaica wifi system is nothing like city internet so if your planning to try work from the villa this could be an issue so just get all that stuff done before you get there haha. I return to Jamaica next June for a family holiday so I might just rebook a stay

Owner's Response: Hi Kristina, Thanks for your honesty of some of the issues you experienced. These always help with me trying to ensure that whatever problems their are that they are addressed immediately. The internet will always work on Island time, unfortunately their is not much I am able to do to rectify this issue, unless the company run the cables along our road. My apologies. I am so sorry your meals came out late, but the size of your group as you stated would have caused this, again I do apologize for this. All in all I am truly glad you had a memorable 25th Birthday, and hope to see you soon.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

So happy we chose to stay at sandpebbles! Besides the awesome accommodations which were beyond our dreams, besides the amazing meals that Dell cooked for us, which were sooo much better then any hotel chain or restaurant could have ever provided, what we loved most was the personal touch and home town knowledge of Jason! From the minute he picked us up at the airport it was on. We stopped at a local spot for some juicy patties and I mean local. He knows all the right people and places to go and see if you want a truely authentic Jamaican experience. We also were very pleased with the works from, Pauline who kept our stay tidy and and clean. Tyrone and Romaine made sure the pool and the grounds were spotless as well as whipped up all our cocktails and served all our meals with great professionalism. We had dinner on the beach as well as a bon fire for our 4th of july celebration! We cant emphasise enough how much Jason provided , we saw the real jamaica , the real Jamaican people , "off the beaten path" which we thoroughly appreciated and enjoyed! And we fell in love with the beach dog that we named Emma that kept our hearts warm from the absence of our own pets! The memories from this vacation will be cherished for ever! When we do visit jamaica again we know where we will be staying!!

Owner's Response: Matt, Thanks for all your kind words. It warms my heart that you can come to our little piece of paradise with your family and enjoy what we call home. I am happy that Jason was able to make this happen for your family, especially for your son's summer vacation before heading off to University. Dell really is special with her meals, so glad you enjoyed them. I heard you tried a lot of our local dishes. You really got the true Jamaican experience. Thanks again, and we do look forward to you returning

The Ideal Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We choose this spot for an extended family vacation (two adult siblings, their spouses and children) and it was perfect! The secluded inlet offered beautiful ocean views, tranquil breezes, mild surf, and safe play for both adults and kids (aged 5 to 15). Having a pool too, meant fun swim time while everyone was in view. The whole property is gorgeous with orchids and fruit trees galore and several different outdoor entertainment spaces. The indoors were lovely, too: always immaculate, thoughtfully decorated, stylish but relaxed.

And the staffing made all of the difference! Gizelle is a thoughtful, personally-engaged owner, checking in to ensure that everything is to your liking and directing a top-notch team to make the vacation unforgettable. Jason has a great insiders' view of the island, recommending once-in-a-lifetime excursions while avoiding tourist traps. He has a great people sense and can discern what your specific party might enjoy and he makes no-pressure suggestions. Dell is an outstanding and flexible chef, tempting you to try something new while respecting your preferences. Marvelous! Tyrone, the cool-as-a-fan butler, is so much more! He is patient with questions, ready with info, and seamlessly sets up gorgeous meal settings and maintains the public spaces. At 5:30am each day he was already quietly opening the house to ocean breezes, cleaning the pool, slicing fruit. Awesome. Ms. Pauline kept everything immaculate and is a housekeeping icon. She also made desserts, famous rum punch, and was always ready with meal planning suggestions, shopping knowledge and such. She sets a very high standard. And last, but not, least, Romaine kept the yard gorgeous, helped inside --and was the king with the kids--helping them climb one of the many mango trees to pick fresh fruit, shimmying up to get breadfruit for us, and always patiently making recommendations for fun and answering questions about his island. In every way, the Sandpebbles team made us feel spoiled and relaxed. Want a bonfire on the beach? Yeah mon! Want to take a run too far that might not be most recommended? A gentle explanation, and alternative suggestion, is headed your way. Perfection! We are already planning to come back with a bigger group and hope to also rent this team's exquisite villa a few doors down the beach.

Fantastic stay! We will be dreaming of this vacation spot for years to come!

  • 5 of 5

This was one family vacation we will never forget! The staff at Sandpebbles was top-notch! Dell, Pauline, Tyrone and Romaine went above and beyond each day, allowing us to truly relax and enjoy this beautiful house. The pictures on the site are beautiful, however seeing this house in real life is another experience. Tastefully decorated and very much like home. The kids had a blast in the pool and playing around on the kayaks and paddle board. My husband and I enjoyed daily walks on the beach, and daily doses of rum punch by the pool. Gizelle made sure we were taken care of and Jason showed us some of Jamaica's treasures from his native perspective. The Blue Hole falls trip is a must! I highly recommend this house and this crew! Already wishing we could plan another trip! Thanks again to the staff and the Smith family for our fabulous Jamaican holiday!

No worries, mon!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a different kind of family vacation experience, one where you get off the grid and away from the crowds, you must visit Sandpebbles! What a special place! Gizelle was so great to work with - from the time we booked, the weeks leading up to our trip getting our meals and transportation worked out, and she even stopped by to check on us after we arrived. The staff at the villa is absolutely amazing and very attentive to the guests. As previous guests have mentioned, Dell's meals are absolutely delicious and we loved trying some of the local Jamaican dishes. The kids loved watching her prepare the meals! Pauline kept the house in perfect order and turned down our beds each night and left bottled water for each of us. Tyrone took care of anything we needed and the kids loved seeing his unique table settings before each meal. Romaine did a great job with our beach bonfires and told us lots of interesting things at night about the culture. He even raced the kids on the beach and was so kind and helpful (and really fast!). Jason was great about taking us on excursions but with a local feel and not "touristy". We loved the Blue Hole and the guides Jason knew were so much fun! Glistening Waters was another favorite for the kids. We loved taking the kayaks out to the reef for snorkeling and the little kids loved walking to the far right end of the beach and collecting hermit crabs for races. They also developed quite the technique for lizard hunting around the villa. Tyrone can share their secret method for catching them. Our favorite quote of the week was Tyrone saying "those lizards are having a bad week"! We can't say enough about the whole staff and the amazing hospitality. Everyone was like a big family and so welcoming and accommodating. We hope to come back some day. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Owner's Response: Hi Kari, Oh.....it was our utmost pleasure getting to meet you and your family. Seeing the girls in the tree climbing, playing, the others kids enjoying the pool. Not to mention you adults just sitting relaxing watching them and not having a care in the world. That is the ultimate goal of Sandpebbles. Our staff are awesome, they creat the atmosphere of relaxation, along with our little piece of Paradise we call home. I am super happy you all had a great time. Please come back and join us again. Maybe in the new Villa.
