We rented both villas for 8 bedrooms total as our family was very large. We felt like we had our own private resort-private pool, the staff, the beach-everything was wonderful. It was great to have so much living space both indoors and outdoors. The kids loved the big lawns. A wonderful home!
We rented Coral Cove, Discovery Bay, Jamaica via Travel Keys and they did an excellent job. Our concierge, Jennifer Kinzie, is outstanding at her job. We were well prepared for the trip and every question was promptly answered. We were guests at Coral Cove from 6/30/2013 - 7/6/2013, 8 adults, 3 children. My wife and I decided to spend some big bucks to take our 3 kids, spouses & significant others, and grandchildren on a memorable vacation at a beautiful location that only involved relaxation and fun. No cooking, no cleaning, no running around. All our desires and expectations were exceeded - it was the best vacation ever. The villa is beautiful, comfortable, and has everything we needed. The staff is superior and catered to our every need. Our cook Norma is exceptional and very easy to work with. We made sure to plan meals at least a day ahead. Norma even made picnic lunches for our excursions. We enjoyed Jamaican style cooking as well as the down home cooking I crave. The staff did all the shopping and presented us with very detailed receipts. Penny and Louise kept the villa sparkling clean all the time. They also did a fantastic job keeping up with our dirty clothes. Kevin is an excellent butler. His service during meals was exceptional. Kevin seemed to be able to read our minds regarding refreshments. Drinks at the beach, pool, and patio were always readily available. Devon was an outstanding assistant butler and gardener. Paul did a great job keeping the beach, pool area and grounds looking their best. Additionally, the staff responded quickly to requests and even issues we did not bring to their attention. During cocktail hour one day, we discussed the areas of the house where the wireless connection was best and what areas to avoid. The next day an IT technician was on site to replace the router -- problem solved and we never made the request. We took several walks in the neighborhood and never felt unsafe. Our grandchildren spent many hours in the pool and the beach. The adults spent many hours reading in comfortable beach chairs and kayaking in the bay. The fishermen in the family paddled out beyond the protected area of the bay to fish for the big ones. On 2 occasions the fish was so big it took them for a ride in the kayak before the line broke. Regarding transportation, we decided to rent a vehicle and driver for the entire time we were in Jamaica. This decision was one of the best ones we made. Our vacation experts, Travel Keys, contracted with Denton Transportation. Travel from and to the airport was punctual and enjoyable. During the week we enjoyed Dunns River Falls, river rafting/tubing, horseback riding, sailing and snorkeling. We also did the glistening waters tour in Falmouth. Denton personally did almost all of the driving. Both Denton and the other drivers are very safety conscious. Every place Denton recommended was just what we hoped it would be. Also, we were never approached by local vendors because Denton was always there for us. Whatever we asked for Denton delivered. On our last night my wife and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary with an awesome dinner on the beach followed by a fire. It was the perfect ending to a perfect week. Bottom line, we spent a lot of money; but, it was worth it. In fact, we had decided on the tips for the staff and driver before we left home and put the money in envelopes so we would have the money at the end of the week. We put more money in every envelope because the service was so good.
