“Imagine a vacation in a beautiful villa high atop the world, wit”
Tranquility villa is gorgeous! The home is spotless, and tastefully decorated in Caribbean style. This villa sits high above Port antonio with a billion dollar view! It delivers tranquility, pampering, and is centrally located for many activities. We especially enjoyed the soft music sounds of Port antonio drifting up to the villa.The villa had a great sound system of it's own that could be heard inside and outside, that we enjoyed daily. Beverly cooks anything you request. She is very helpful setting up menus,and will accompany you to the stores or will do the shopping ahead of time, or when needed upon arrival. The highlight of the day was awaiting her scrumptious meals! She was also a friend in need when I sustained a minor injury during the visit, which required going to a local hospital.(my fault..no defect in the villa!)Thanks again Beverly!! Dennis was very professional and friendly. He gave us great advise on places to visit, etc. He did all he could to pamper us during our entire stay. He fixed us daily fruit smoothie pitchers to mix with our rum for happy hour or to have at breakfast time! He took great care of us during a tropical storm we experienced while we were there, and from our viewpoint this storm was fun to watch and did not detract from our visit. The villa was safe during the storm as well as at night! I loved the view and the pool more than anything...however, you had to earn the view by ascending the road to the villa. I rented a car and drove myself for the most part. I would do it again, however, it does come with some trepidation! My nephews stated you had to earn that tranquility by arriving at the villa, but it made it all the more special! Believe me, if I could do it...so could anyone else. I have a fear of heights! Having said that I would do it again and again, and would rent a car..so it couldn't have been that bad! Hard to say goodbye to Dennis and Beverly, as well as this perfect spot in paradise!
“Beautiful location with sweet views”
visited this property with my wife and twin 3-year old girls. Girls loved the small pool - it was perfect for them. The views are just amazing. Property is just a few minutes drive from all the sites including Frenchmen's cove. Dennis and Bev are just amazing...so helpful with everything. Would recommend the property w/out any hesitation.
“Fabulous, relaxing, beautiful, private...”
This was my second time staying at Tranquility, (15th trip to Jamaica), My stays at Tranquility, were by far the best! Each stay gets better and better! I love the home, it's beautiful, spacious, clean, private, and the view is priceless! It's far enough away from everything, that you have the privacy you desire, but it's close enough to experience everything Jamaica has to offer. The food the cook made was fabulous, it was wonderful to have exactly what we wanted for our meals. (Helpful if your'e vegetarian, or have special dietary needs- one of us is vegetarian and the other, not). Can't pinpoint what I like most. Meals outside with a beautiful view and flower decorations on the table, lots of sun on both sides of the house, the food, swimming pool...? I loved, loved, loved everything! All of my vacation needs were met, and then some! Can't wait to get back!
We adored our stay at Tranquility -- it truly lives up to its name! This elegant, old-school school villa, built in the 1950s, is perched on a mountaintop. The views alone (Port antonio bay one one side, Blue Mountains on the other) are worth the price of admission! The house is small (5 people max but 4 is ideal) but airy and completely private. And the decor -- white wood wainscoting, ceiling fans, teak floors and simple white beds with mosquito netting -- is classic Jamaica (Noel Coward or Ian Fleming would have been very much at home here). Our stay was made even more delightful by a warm and professional staff: Beverly, a gifted cook specializing in Jamaican cuisine, on-property houseman Dennis, and on-call driver Charlie. Frenchman's Cove, a gorgeous private beach, is a 15-20 minute car ride away -- but truthfully, this is the kind of place where you can wile away the hours sitting by the pool and watching the changing views as the light shifts. One issue to take into consideration: the trip from the airport is 2- 21/2 hours through winding mountain roads. But the setting and staff make it well worth the wait!
I travelled to many places but have never felt upon entering my lodging the way I did when I set my foot in Tranquility Villa. The place is indescribably beautiful -- the pictures on the website do not justice to the views you have from the villa. Together with my family, we had huge trouble coming up with appropriate adjectives that would sum this place up. You have the view of the Caribbean Sea to your left, palm and bamboo trees and Blue Mountains in front of you and to your right. The villa staff -- Dennis and Beverly -- should teach courses on hospitality. They were warm, friendly, and welcoming; we immediately bonded with them. Dennis cut gorgeous flowers every morning to set at the table on the terrace. Beverly cooked Jamaican food that was just incredible. Our driver, Charlie, proved to be so much more than a driver. He was an amazing guide. He went out of his way to accomodate us and to show real Jamaica to us. I really have nothing negative to say about Tranquility Villa. The villa is clean and stylishly furnished, the beds are comfy, the service is impeccable, and the owner with whom we booked our stay was kind and willing to spend considerable amount of time over the phone with me prior to our landing in Jamaica and answer my questions. The ride through Blue Mountains to get to Port antonio is beautiful and definitely worth the 2 hours in the car. Since getting back, we are recommending Tranquility Villa to all our friends and family. Just before leaving the villa, we took a picture with Beverly, Dennis, and Charlie and as we were leaving, found ourselves tearing up -- which tells ou how lovely the staff was towards us! It was a heavenly stay!
“Pristine beauty and privacy”
Tranquility Villa was true to its word with a casual, home-like environment and lovely staff (Bev, my new friend and Dennis, that cool cat) who were present when you needed them, and left us on our own as well. The home was perfect for us (2 couples). We used every inch of it, the decks, porch, pool area - each with stunning gorgeous views! Port antonio is like a best kept secret, very different from resort-style locations. The drive from Kingston is legendary with winding, twisting roads, pot holes and aggressive driving. We just surrendered to our very experienced driver and focused on the exceptional views. We went to Frechmen's Cove twice, loved it, that was one of the highlights, also the rafting was beautiful. One night we dined a the Bush Bar (GeeJam), wonderful food and amazing service. The guys went deep sea fishing and came back with stories about their great adventure. Al in all...Pretty hard to find anything to complain about! Can't wait to go back.
“Aptly named piece of heaven on a hilltop”
We loved this place so much that I was almost tempted not to write a review in the hope of keeping it secret. The villa is beautiful; quietly elegant and immaculately maintained. The polished wood floors felt great under bare feet and the breeze blows right through the place keeping it cool and fresh. The views - the blue mountains to the right and the sea to the left - are captivating and the staff (Beverley and Dennis) made us feel completely relaxed and well looked after at the same time. I'd recommend this place to anybody with an appreciation of nature and time to watch the sky.
“Thoughts on Heaven”
I was thinking that when I get to heaven and God takes me by the hand to show me my personal mansion on my street of gold, I would have to interrupt and say "Well, Lord, actually, may I have a "Tranquility"? Then I realized... He knows... So He would pat my hand, smile, point the way... then I'd see... oh yeah... I'm in heaven... then I'd get to spend eternity, not just the short visit I so far have had the immense pleasure to experience! Thank you Tranquility! I look forward to seeing you again!!
“Amazing To wake up to the blue mountains on the right and the To”
Perched at the top of a hill with n amazing view of Erroll Flynn's private island , is this most charming Jamaican style yet extremely modern villa. I arrived at night and so did not see the amazing Blue Mountains until the next morning when I opened the door leading to my patio and beheld the quiet glory of these mountains. Then breakfast was served on the terrace looking down on Flynn's island, floating in the Caribbean, and It was then I truly understood the meaning of the word Tranquility. The beds were comfortable and the staff charming and helpful. It was a memorable experience and as you can see, it made me poetic. I have rented spaces myselfand so am happy when I find a place I can recommend.
“Heaven on a Hill.”
It was just awesome. The staff were so friendly. The food was great. And all just moments from the beach.
