“From the minute we walked in, it was breath taking”

Reviewed 13 Jan 2013

From the second we arrived to the second we left, was absolutely breathtaking. The house was in a gated and secured community. The immaculate home furnishings - just gave the look and feel of paradise. Exactly what we were searching for as a relaxing getaway vacation! There is a beach located right in front of the house and it's about a 3 min walk to get down there once u walk down the stairs. The view is just gorgeous. The ever so kind and helpful staff were there at our every waking need! Everything we needed was taken care of. The cook made all of our meals just unforgettable. True taste of Jamaican cuisine. I do recommend renting a car! but we took the taxi which was just fine. We had an excellent taxi driver named Dale who drove us everywhere. I 100% recommend him. He is honest and loyal and was always there on time to pick us up. Our stay in the Big White Villa, made our family vacation to Jamaica unforgettable and we are just counting down the days until we can return. We thank Cynthia Lusack for allowing us to stay in her beautiful villa. We will definitely be coming back!

Response from the owner I am so happy about your comments Sidia,we cannot ask for more than our guest leaving the place with the feeling,that they would like to return,and you certainly have.Thank you

“amazing time at the villa”

Reviewed 15 Nov 2012

We had an amazing time at the villa with any possible comforts e perfect service. The house is fully furnished, with great level of detail and taste; huge rooms with own bathroom, air conditioning, tv, internet... everyting; the staff looking after the house were great (cleaning lady and maintainance guy). A pool is just a bliss during hot Jamaican days but even better - the local beach is 2 minutes away down a fly of stairs. The town of Ocho Rios is 10 minutes' drive away so if you have a car it works perfectly. We had the unfortunate situation of being there during the hurricane and we suffered no damage- the house is robust and there is a generator. Highly recommended !

Response from the owner Thanks Gloria for spending the time to write this review. Happy to know you enjoyed your stay at the villa even with the unfortunate encounter of Hurricane SANDY. You treated it as an exciting experience ...worthwhile of video-ing. This shows how safe you felt being at the villaWe look forward to your next visit

“Great relaxing stay in a peaceful location!”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2012

We had a wonderful week here and would definitely come back again. We stayed in the pool suite which was very convenient and just the right size although could have done with a freshen up compared to the rest of the house which we were shown around. We would love to come again and bring friends and stay in the big house. The amenities were great and Ricky looked after us well. You must have a car when staying here and you will find it a great base to travel from. We were a bit hesitant as there was no credit card or paypal facility to pay but everything went smoothly ...Thanks Cynthia !

“The best Christmas Holiday away from home!”

Reviewed 30 Jan 2012

We had an amazing week stay at The Big White Villa with family and friends. It was the best Christmas holiday away from home! The luxurious and tranquil villa was festively decorated and provided something for every age group in our gathering, from children to seniors. The modern facilities, wireless internet, Wii gaming system, pool, heated jacuzzi, and cable television were all wonderful amenities enjoyed at our home away from home. The Villa offers spectacular seaviews from almost any vantage point. The gazebo, patios and beautifully flowering garden enhanced our relaxation. Our accommodation in the apartment nearest the pool was great! We had our own cooktop, refrigerator, dutch oven, cable television, private bathroom, comfortable king size bed and patio. An added bonus was that We could access the wireless internet while sitting on our patio that was just steps away from all of the action in the pool. This villa allowed us the time to spend with the family and yet still enjoy our privacy. With the Villa location in a secured gated community across the street from the Rio Nuevo Battle site Memorial Park and just an easy 10 minute ride from Ocho Rios, we were able to enjoy the privacy of our family holiday gathering and the activities that make Ocho Rios world reknown...the World Famous Dunn's River Falls! It was great having the brochures and information on local activities in the Villa. As a family, we had the best times snorkeling and sailing on the Cool Runnings Catamaran. The younger adults enjoyed a night out at Margaritaville and Christmas Eve in downtown Ochi. The Staff at the Villa were quite welcoming and helped to make our vacation a memorable one. Thanks to Dal and Cynthia for sharing their beautiful Villa with others along with a little bit of Jamaican history. Oh the memories we will have for years to come! We look forward to visiting again soon. Yeah Mon!

Response from the owner wow!!!!..this is so beautiful what you have written.and thank you.I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay@the villa so much to the point you we re compelled to write such a very discriptive and thorough review,Once again,Thank you.

“A palace with creature comforts!”

Reviewed 26 Jan 2012

What can I say.,.. Perfection! From the decor, the location, the staff everything was perfect. The villa catered for our every need. There was a wii for the kids (and those brave adults who didn't mind the humiliation), a family safe pool with a shallow end for the less confident swimmers and a cinema size tv, although we hardly spent time watching it. The best part about the villa is that we could all stay together. It really helped that we had separate apartments so we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. Definitely recommend this villa for family reunions or group bookings.

Response from the owner Blu thank you so much for taking the time out to write such a beautiful review.another satisfied customer,we cannot ask for anymore.Once again thank you.

“amazing and restful”

Reviewed 24 Jan 2012

Beautiful villa in a fantastic location.The villa has lots of space so can easily accommodate large groups of people without feeling like you are on top of each other!! The villa boasts an impressive 4 bathrooms and a separate loo! The villa is set in its own grounds with a beautiful view of the sea. The local shops are minutes away with easy access to the main strip where you can access more shops, bars, restaurants and the famous Turtle beach. The grounds are stunning with a pool perfect for lounging and sunbathing in the day and relaxing with a glass of wine at night! We had a fantastic time and will definitely be going back soon.

Response from the owner Thank you Char for writing this review,so happy you enjoyed your stay at the villa.we will be looking forward to your next visit,hopefully very soon.

my family of 6 visited the resort for spring break last year from atlanta, my four children (6,8,10,12) had a blast and want to go back again.i couldn't get my 8yr old (who's autistic)out of the jacuzzi, we are seriously considering returning soon as the house,food and hospitality was out of this world,we recommend it highly to any one wanting to take their family to a peaceful,safe not to mention beautiful resort. "The big white villa" is big in our hearts.

Response from the owner Nadine,it was such a pleasure to host you,we know how much you enjoyed it,just cant wait till you are back.

“the best place to stay”

Reviewed 19 Oct 2011

I would strongly recommend the Big white villa as the perfect place for those laid back souls who like being away from the city and prefer to live among the locals. I love this place!!! It was as beautiful as it is pictured. It was quite and cozy and cool. I liked having my own pool, and jacuzzi!!! Since I prefer to to prepare my own food, I had a full kitchen/dining area, awesome!!!. The staff were friendly, helpful and wonderful. Thank you aretha for handling my internet needs immediately. I would have stayed longer if i have made better arrangements. I will be back to this place next time I come to Ocho Rios

Response from the owner Thank you Moraa for spending the time to write this happy we were able to make your vacation a good one.dont leave it too long before we see you again

“Enjoyed the family in Jamaica!”

Reviewed 12 May 2011

This is a great place for you to spend with your family. We rented out the whole villa and everyone was comfortable and also had their own space. What I really enjoyed about this option was that we were able to enjoy the family when we had meals together, played wii, went swimming, or just sat around and chatted. It was so safe, clean, and comfortable. The only down side is that the villa is outside of the city and so you need to hire a driver to take you to the main tourist attactions (Dunn's Falls, shopping, etc). I also was not a fan of having to grocery shop for the food, but the staff really helped finding the foods we liked to eat. Bottom was such a great experience overall and what a way to just get away and relax with the family!!!

Response from the owner Thanks Donney,for spending the time to write a review,also very happy to know you enjoyed yourselves.
