The place was very updated, quiet, clean and the staff is amazing. We all wished the stay was a bit longer and... More

We stayed in Unit #2 which is a two-story, four bedroom villa with four bathrooms, a living room, kitchen and a large upstairs balcony. The grounds are secure and safety is not an issue. Our swimming pool and entire area was kept... More

Our family has sort of adopted Chillin' as our home away from home. We have stayed there a number of times, and in fact, Chillin' was the "wedding central" for our daughter's wedding. Family members stayed in all but one of the villas for a few days leading up to and after the wedding (we sort of took over the... More

Private and Secure. First Class treatment. The perfect base for your North Coast adventure. From Portland to Negril, it is all just a drive away. Beach access and pool are great features. You won't want to leave.
