“Fabulous Gardens and the best shower ever!”
Reviewed 2 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Really enjoyed staying here... Lisa and Richard are such lovely people and the welcome breakfasts were just superb thanks to (oh no! my brain is frazzled and I've forgotten the housekeepers name!) .... but thank you! I love fried green plantain!!!

A hammock was put up for me in the garden, thanks Raheem :-) I loved it.

Would definitely come back should I visit Mandeville again!

We are soo very happy to have hosted you both. Very happy that you enjoyed the showers (new air tank working well) as well as the hammock. We got another hammock for both of you and permanent table and benches for the back....

“Clean, tidy and very welcoming”
Reviewed 21 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Lisa was very welcoming and friendly. The room was clean and tidy and had been thoughtfully put together - fully equipped kitchen, spare toothbrush and toothpaste in the bathroom, filtered water in the fridge, etc etc. We didn't have to ask for anything. Breakfast was simple but delicious.

“"Reservation" meaningless here”
Reviewed 15 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

My husband, mother, and I were very disappointed to learn on arrival that the owner gave our room to another guest. Despite the fact that I confirmed and paid for our reservation prior to leaving for Jamaica, she said that she didn't know if we were coming. She arranged for us to stay with a friend/family. While these accomodations were acceptable and the host very kind and hospitable, this was not what I booked and paid for. Isn't that the purpose of "reservation"?? Reservation does NOT guarantee a room!

It is with great regret we find that you were disappointed in your reservations being cancelled. We always accommodate all our guests to the maximum ensuring that they have an unforgettable stay. As a result of guests that no-show, we normally contact our guests one week prior to their arrival time to re-confirm. However, we tried to contact both you and Flipkey from as early as October 31 but got no response. Unfortunately, your contact phone number as well as your email address that was given were not working. In the event that we are fully booked, we make alternative arrangements with another guest house/B&B to ensure that our guests have accommodations. Again, we sincerely apologize for the miss communications and hope that you enjoyed your stay in Jamaica.

“It doesn't get better than this!”

I traveled to Jamaica with my parents for the first time in late July for the purpose of attending a sports tournament. We had booked this apartment but when we arrived in Jamaica we found out that due to slight miscommunication, it was double booked and the other person had already checked in. However, our phenomenal host, Lisa, arranged for us to stay at another rental home for no excess charge, was there to meet us when we had arrived, and had stayed for a bit to ensure that we got settled in and were comfortable. The house was clean, the fridge was stocked a bit so we had something to eat, and while there was no A/C, it's not needed in cool Mandeville! Lisa had even been the one who helped us arrange to be picked up at the airport and get around Jamaica for the duration of our stay! (THANK YOU PAUL!) One night Lisa had invited us to her home for a delicious dinner where she had prepared foods she knew we would enjoy in an absolutely beautiful outdoor setting. She genuinely treats you like a member of her family she has known for years.
Coming down to the end of our stay, my mother suffered a near fatal health scare in the early hours of the morning and when the ambulance did not pick up the phone, Lisa did, and she immediately came over. Not only did she personally rush my mother, myself, and my dad to the emergency room, but she stayed with us at the hospital and ensured that my mother was given the best treatment possible to save her life. Lisa took my father and I into her home without hesitation while my mom remained in the hospital overnight and ensured we had any and every thing we could possibly need, including a hearty breakfast the next morning that she made herself. What we found in Lisa and her staff (THANK YOU MELISSA, SHARON, AND JOSEPHINE!) is more than what you will find in any hotel not only in Mandeville, but in Jamaica. She is a fantastic, professional, patient, selfless woman who is genuinely interested in making sure her guests are taken care of to the highest standard. We are forever grateful to her. If you are considering staying on one of her properties, do yourself a favor and book now. What you will find in Lisa is more than you will find anywhere else. It doesn't get better than her.

The staff here were very helpful and attentive to your needs. The setting for meals is awesome under the lychee tree, but there is also the ability to be completely private in the apartment suite which has it's own well appointed kitchenette. Bathroom a bit tiny but clean. A wonderful place to stay well off the beaten path.
