Nigel the house manager
Our ‘House Manager’ Nigel resides at the rear of the property in a self-contained apartment he shares with his partner Renee. Nigel maintains the gardens and the swimming pool and terrace to the highest of standards. Apart from security, which is one of his other roles at the villa, he is always happy to offer his services as chef to ensure your holiday is enjoyed to the full.
Bed and Breakfast Option
Many of our guests prefer to book with breakfast included. Nigel charges separately for this service and offers great value for money. He is renowned for his cooking and what better way to start the day than with a good hearty Jamaican breakfast served outside on the Pool Terrace. Your party can pre-order a varied weekly breakfast menu by speaking to Nigel when you arrive at the villa.
Maid Service with Loraine
There is a maid service, which is included in the price of your holiday with Lorraine coming in twice a week to clean throughout the villa and change bedding. Fresh towels are provided twice a week but please bring your own beach towels.
For those guests who want to get away from it all Loraine is also available to do your washing and ironing. For a very reasonable price she will wash and iron your clothes to a high standard. Guests are invited to make a private arrangement directly with Loraine.
If guests would prefer to do their own washing they can do so when either Nigel or Loraine are on hand to show them how to use the facilities. There is also a wash tub at the rear and an iron and ironing board are provided in both the villa and the apartment.TripAdvisor property ID 3502290...Read more

Left on 07/11/2015 for a stay in June 2015 | myjamfamReviewed Jul 11, 2015Stayed Jun 2015
Neil, the owner was always quick to answer numerous questions before our trip. He called us before we left and when we returned home. Having read lots of good reviews, I felt comfortable that all would go well. This was my first time to this part of the Island. Junior picked us up at the Kingston airport and we became instant friends. He is the perfect person to teach you about the Jamaican lifestyle (although I was already familiar) and the area. He was always available by phone or on the premises as well as the friendly and helpful Nigel. My greatest concern before the trip was travelling with children (one with autism). The staff took great interest in observing and learning about his condition and were extremely helpful in keeping an eye on him. The staff became friends and like family. Juniors mini bus (van) came in handy for transporting our large group on several occasions, including a family reunion about an hour away. Almond tree villa truly was a home away from home. The furnishings, were sturdy and more than adequate. We were provided with plenty of towels and had the house cleaned and our linens changed during our stay. We had a full house of kids ages 4-15 and everyone was very comfortable. The kids enjoyed the TV with cartoon stations and of course the wonderful pool. My favourite place besides the pool was the verandah where I ate my breakfast each morning and a great place for conversation and nice breeze through the day and evening. Town (shopping, church) and beaches are a short ride away. We particularly liked Mahogany beach, small and clean with lovely views and shade. The neighbours were also helpful and friendly. I was overall so impressed with everything. The staff are respectful and can be a little shy at first, but quickly warm up and go above and beyond to make your stay great. If you want a quiet, more private visit, they would respect that and let you set the tone. The Wi-Fi was a little choppy during the day but seemed to improve after 10pm. My personal recommendations for visitors are to bring with you an unlocked GSM phone and then buy a digicel or lime SIM card and a little credit. The gas station was the closest place to get cold drinks, snacks and phone credit, but can be very expensive when done daily. Champion supermarket in the heart of Ocho Rios was a very good Supermarket with good prices. Just remember most places you pay with a credit card (save fast food joints) will ask you for ID when using your credit card. Next time we will fly into Montego Bay instead of Kingston as the ride is smoother and a bit shorter. I loved that the villa was in a quiet and nice and safe neighbourhood.Tiny and Boxer make a very good little security team. For those who have done the resorts and want to go a little deeper and take in more of the culture, Almond Tree Villa offers the best of everything. We were sad to leave. So now it is not a matter of IF, but when we will return. We have only been home a week but my husband is already telling everyone about our great experience at Almond Tree Villa. My thanks to Neil, Junior, Nigel and Chupsy for an unforgettable holiday.
