CARIBBEAN VACATION RENTAL REVIEWS
very impressive, homely, welcoming and peaceful
The villa was well situated, not too far from town. It was very clean and and homely. The staff was very professional, ready to help with whatever needed help. A visit from the management was encouraging and reassuring. Overall everybody in the family was happy. The pool was clean, the food was well cooked and appetizing, the service was great. Laundry was done and the beds made with change of linen. The dinning table was our family fun place. The family room was great, balconies were used, the lounge arrangement was super. Loved the architecture of the house. The grounds was clean and well manicured. Will love to go back. Best of all we had a very knowledgable driver (ROBERT) who made our movement around interesting.

Amazing Family Trip
Our family stayed at Summer Hill Villa during the last week in July. We had a fabulous week at the Villa, and the staff did everything they could to make our stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. Desi made many a “phone call” to make sure all our needs were taken care of. We were particularly fond of the yummy cocktails and mocktails he prepared for us.
The cook prepared sumptous meals for our family. We had several dietary variations among our group and she was incredibly understanding and accommodating. In fact, we enjoyed our home cooked meals more than some of our dinners out.
The house was kept in immaculate condition and our rooms were lovely, clean and laundry taken care of daily. We spent a fair amount of time poolside and that was a gathering area that did not disappoint. All in all a fantastic week and we thank everyone at Summer Hill for making it such a special experience for our family.

Memorable family vacation for siblings, spouses, and significant other
This was a great outing and villa for our party of 9 including 6 members who had never been to Jamaica. In general, the villa and staff met our needs. The staff was VERY responsive and professional. Desrick, especially was a delight while making sure that we had “no problem” with the accommodations, hospitality, and courtesies.
The cook extended her repertoire by preparing vegan plus international cuisines to our specifications, including omelets, French toast, chicken cordon bleu, spaghetti, and enchiladas as well as authentic Jamaican entrees.
In addition to providing recipes from Allrecipes.com, I also brought a variety of spices that might not be readily available in Montego Bay. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. The pool was so very refreshing!

Jamaica Crew 2017
As one given a mandate to make memories that count, no one could have prepared me for the memories we made during this grand adventure. Summerhill Villa was the most amazing part of the adventure. Seeing Jamaica was a big part of our trip, but the villa was like nothing I could have imagined. The property? 10/10 amazing. The staff? (Now part of my family, I should add) 10/10 amazing. We had a bit of weather while we were there and never felt inconvenienced at all. The staff helped us find lots to do and meals appeared on schedule , even without power. (A backup generator, of course).
There were 10 of us from Canada, 2 from Florida and 2 from Jamaica staying there. Desrick informed us when we arrived that the house was mine for the week and to treat it like my own. At first that seemed strange, but we quickly got the hang of it. Now I want Jackie, Marva, Chris Ann, Ron, and of course Desrick (Ricky) to come live with me. I loved not having to lift a finger for anything. When we ventured out, we invited the staff along and they took turns joining us as their duties at the villa allowed. They think I don’t know, but I’m quite sure they were keeping an eye on us “crazy Canucks”. Oh, and let’s not forget TJ, who showed up every evening, to keep out the Bogeyman. Not that I ever expected one, but it was nice to know he was there.
The positive energy in the Villa was the perfect way to recharge your batteries. Coming back to work and school, I think everyone understands now why they work so hard at what they do. To go back to Summerhill Villa! If you are considering this location “Just do it!” You won’t be disappointed.

Great for large family trips
We used Summer Hill and the villa next door for a HUGE Thanksgiving family reunion. Most of the kids and teenagers stayed in Summer Hill. They loved the pool. The staff was extremely patient and accommodating. It was the trip of a lifetime for our family.

Fun in the sun
I stayed at Summerhill villa this past week. The staff was great, they treated us as if we were at home. The hospitality staff was great. Our driver for our stay was Devon Cunningham was great with us. He went above and beyond when it came to showing us the beautiful places in Jamaica. He was a great guide. If I have the pleasure of traveling to Jamaica again I would like him to be my tour guide.

Summerhill is an excellent choice
Summerhill staff goes the extra mile for each guest. The chef’s cooking will have you biting your fingers thinking it’s more food. The facility was super clean. 19 people were in my party, we enjoyed a cleaned pool everyday, rum punch all day and great excursion by using Dwaine Burke for our driver (he’s not a part of Summerhill staff but Jamaican Treasures hooked us up with him) I’ve been back 7 times and only use him.

Audrey's family vacation
This was our 2nd visit to Summerhill, my family had a wonderful time. This staff was new, however, just as fabulous as the staff 6 yrs ago, very attentive, friendly and professional. Jacky the cook, wow!!!the dishes she prepared was Absolutely mouth watering. Delroy, such an asset to the villa, everything was in order, such attention to details. Erika, Marlene, Marva and Stephlon such hard workers. I highly recommend Summerhill to family and friends. Looking forward to our next visit.

best vacation ever!
I cannot begin to tell you how amazing the entire experience was – from the booking agent…to TraceyAnne our concierge….to the staff at Summerhill – Not once did we not feel that we were their top priority – Each and every person we encountered help make this trip the most memorable.
The staff at Summerhill looked after every need – including one guest who liked to rise early but always had his breakfast ready thanks to Jackie….one guest who unfortunately had an ear infection but was quickly remedies thanks to some homeopathic remedies by Nordia….Karin who looked after every ounce of the house…Stephlan who welcomed us with a big smile and helped us totally relax….and Delroy the man who made every thing run as smoothly as possible –
They were all amazing and we hope to cross paths again! Tracey Anne was truly amazing she handled every request big or small and made it so easy for me (the planner) to relax

Jamaican Villa good fit for big family
We had a good week in the home. We had 18 people, from ages 4-83 which mostly filled the place. The staff was very nice and accommodating. They took good care of us and we enjoyed our time.
The location is good not great, as we had a driver the whole week and he was very busy. It would have been nice to have easier access to Half Moon Bay as one had to drive back and forth too much.
The chef was competent but not wonderful. We had a little communication gap in some of the things we wanted vs. what we got. All in all a good trip.

Amazing service and location
I stayed here in August 2014. The staff was amazing and took care of us. Stayed with a large group. Loved having food cooked for us daily and being able to have our own pool, which we spent a lot of time in. We rented a van to drive us around which was convenient. Most amazing and relaxing trip. Nice to have everything taken care of while there. Staff was friendly, gave tours, had a lot of information, cooked amazing food, washed clothes and cleaned daily. Would definitely recommend to anyone else.

Best vacation ever!
My husband and I just stayed at Summerhill for a week and had our wedding there with 30 guests. We had the overflow guests stay at a nearby villa, and it didn’t even compare to Summerhill! The staff is just amazing and made our stay everything we had hoped it would be. So many of our guests mentioned this being the best vacation they have had, and it’s because of the exemplary service and accommodations. We are already planning a reunion trip, because we all had such a blast. It comes highly recommended from us!

We just got back for the planning of my son’s wedding at Summerhill Villa and can not wait to back in May, 2009, for a whole week. This villa is spectacular with great staff; Loxley and Noel incredibly helpful! They even allowed us to store us boxes for the wedding. This place is beautiful, I mean spectacular!
Ms. Jones the owner makes sure of that. They are constantly working on the gardens, even without guests. It is not cheap but the pictures on the net do not do justice to the beauty of the property. Close to everything and surrounded by other fine villas. Believe me!

Thanksgiving 2007 at SUMMERHILL VILLA
Staying at Summerhill Villa was one of the BEST trips that I’ve had to Montego Bay, Jamaica.
The villa is gorgeous and the staff anticipated our every wish or thought. AHHHHHHHH, to be there now.
I always thought that I would miss out on things while tucked away in a villa, but the privacy the location afforded, paired with everything being within easy driving distance, the beauty of the grounds, and waking up to a beautiful breakfast table with a chef cooking in the kitchen and our butler standing by ready to serve us, changed my thinking. Summerhill Villa is the only way to go.
I’ve visited several other villas and they are nice, but Summerhill embracs and greets you as you enter the private enty gate. The four who booked and paid -in -full first, lived upstairs. It was so much fun comparing the layout and features of each room. Those who had mobility problems with stairs stayed on the ground floor. My husband and I stayed on the lower level, with our private gated-entry, jacuzzi tub and wet bar in our patio. Oh, and my sister Cynthia was just a hallway away, and we spent many nights chatting til the weeee hours of the morning. It was the perfect location for us.
When we wanted to gather together we’d sit by the pool, receive our lunch outside under the gazebo, watch TV or DVD’s in the library/computer room or sit in the living room. We had so many options and there were eleven of us.
The food was unbelievably delicious… our driver (Dennis) and our Outstanding Chef “Loxley” helped us with many selections of local dishes. We even went down to the ocean and hand picked lobster for several dinners (including our Thanksgiving dinner).
I could go on and on, but to sum it up “We’re ready to re-book” for another great trip…. maybe another Thanksgiving.
