“Comfortable but.....”
Reviewed 13 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

First I MUST thank the staff. Ms. Enid and Chantelle were fantastic in ensuring our comfort during our stay.

Staff: Ms. Enid and Chantelle are fantastic. They truly provided a great warm Jamaican welcome. They were very accommodating. A few times we forgot our keys when we left the property and they made themselves available to open the doors for us when we returned to the property. I found them very kind and personable. They were just very nice people and super friendly.

Dining: We ate traditional Jamaican food for most of the trip and LOVED IT. Ms. Enid and Chantelle are GREAT cooks and our meals were wonderful. The formal dining setting in the home is very inviting and provided great family time around good meals. All left overs were packed up in the refrigerator during our stay so we were able to make snacks out of the leftovers when we wanted.

Location/Grounds: The grounds are more beautiful than it looks in the picture. The property is located in an absolutely serene environment. The first drive to the property seemed long, but after going up the hill a few times we realized it is not as far as it initially seemed. If you are looking for a fantastic location off the beaten path Landsdowne will definitely provide that.

The House: The home is large enough to host a large group. The layout of the house is very segmented so if you enjoy a more open concept space the layout is lacking. The home could do with some upgrades. For a vacation rental I would prefer a more upgraded feel. This property could use a fresh paint job and perhaps some modification of the space utilization. There are 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, 2 of the bathrooms are en-suite leaving only 1.5 bathroom available for all of the other guests in the remaining 3 rooms. We did not end up maxing out our guest utilization for the entire trip but if we had all guests with us at once the bathroom would be very inconvenient.

There are no AC units. This is not a bother to me but some of our guests were a little uncomfortable at times. There are fans throughout the house I highly recommend that you utilize them at all times to keep the house cool.

The house has hot water but the staff is instructed to turn off the hot water heater at night. If you like to take late showers like I do it is no fun taking cold showers after a late night.

In addition one of my desires during this trip was to have my grandmother stay with us for some time. There are many stairs to reach the main floor so it is not convenient for an elderly person/mobility disadvantaged.

Overall: Overall the property was nice for our purposes. We had children with us so they had lots of space to run around and we traveled throughout Jamaica for 2 weeks so it provided a great central space for us to call home during our time in Jamaica. For the price I would probably shop around before choosing Landsdowne as my next vacation rental.

The Staff was so nice and welcoming and they made sure that we were enjoying our stay and I also like the fact that the the owner also checked in by phone to see if we have any issues. The staff was so helpful with my son and also took some recommendations from my friends on foods and worked around our schedule.

“Perfect Vacation House for Groups”
Reviewed 27 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

Lansdowne was the perfect place to retreat from the busy ocho rios town but close enough to enjoy the amenities of the town (supermarkets, restaurants, attractions and beaches). Both the property and the house were in immaculate condition, just as seem in pictures. The house is beautifully designed, spacious and airy (lots of windows allowing natural light and fresh breeze).

It was perfect for my group of 10 as there was enough space for us to do different group activities, to eat together, play games or just lounge around, both inside and outside. The next best thing about Lansdowne were the housekeepers, Enid and Erica, they didn't miss a beat! They were able to cater to all our needs. Just give them your groceries and they cook up the most scrumptious meals.

Be sure to visit Blue Hole while staying here! We had a blast and there was nothing better than to return to our guest house to have lunch waiting on us and to relax.

I would recommend this property to anyone and everyone!!! We will definitely be visiting Lansdowne again!!

“Perfection”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My family of 10 wanted the "perfect" location for our reunion vacation, one that would allow for rest and relaxation while giving the kids the opportunity to be free to explore. Not only did Lansdowne offer this, it far exceeded our expectations and offered so much more. Simply stated, it was perfection!!! Nestled in the hills of Upton, Ocho Rios, our home away from home offered the perfect environment for us to get the R&R we wanted and the space and beauty and coolness of the property provided three young children the opportunity to take in the natural wonders of the tropical landscape without the discomfort and misery of the heat or pests. No air condition was necessary in the middle of the summer as it was always breezy and cool day and night. Furthermore, the distance to the town and local attractions was easy to get to on a day-to-day basis without feeling that we were too secluded. Traffic in the area is limited so it always felt safe and noise free. I can't say enough about this place, but it would be unsettling if I didn't mention the added bonus of Mrs. Christy, our very professional and friendly hostess, who took care to provide the best in service to our family. Not once did we feel as though we were in someone else's home. At all times, we were made to feel welcomed and at home. Thanks also to Mrs Bridgette for extending this opportunity to enjoy Jamaica to the fullest. From the onset, you made the process easy and worked to accommodate the needs of our large family. Without hesitation, we would return and would definitely recommend Lansdowne to extended family and friends wanting that "perfect" location for a family retreat. In fact, the pictures from our family trip has already done that for us.
