Description from owner


Villa Serene offers a real taste of Jamaica's South Coast. The property is off the beaten track but has all the comforts of home, nestled on a private beach and close to some of the best attractions. The property is great for lounging by the pool or a romantic night time bonfire on your private beach. The property is equipped with air conditioned bedrooms and has many outdoor and indoor entertaining space. The various nooks mean that it is ideal for multifamily rentals.

There is a pool; toddler's wading pool and Jacuzzi. Guests have full access to all areas. No amenities are shared, this is your home away from home. Staff will be present at the villa during the guests stay.

At Villa Serene, we are eco-friendly and focused on water and energy conservation. As a result, we refresh towels every other day (if needed) and linens every third day. In keeping with our commitment, we also encourage guests to turn off all lights and air conditioners when leaving the rooms to enjoy the beauty of Jamaica's South Coast.

Response from the owner So happy you made memories while vacationing at Villa Serene. It was a pleasure hosting you. You were friendly and created such an easy atmosphere for communication. Villa Serene does not have a hot tub. The jacuzzi as you said does have bubbles and is indeed the same temperature of the pool. The listing has a category (Jacuzzi/hot tub) which was ticked to identify the jacuzzi not the hot tub. There is also another category (Pool ....unheated outdoor pool is ticked). Will recommend to Tripadvisor to separate heading (jacuzzi/hot tub). This would eliminate any misinterpretation. We would forward to hosting you in the future.
