Villa Elia is the perfect place for family relaxation, fun with a breathtaking view and perfectly apportioned furnishing. There is an outdoor shower outside the master bathroom, a pool and a beautiful rooftop space overlooking the ocean. The Villa Elia family made our stay exceptional and the food prepared by Chef Betty and Elisa was second to none.
The location in St. Elizabeth is ideal and there is nothing better than seeing the sunset over the beautiful ocean. This place is amazing and we will definitely be going back. The Villa Elia family did well in creating such a tranquil and beautiful place of serenity for guests to enjoy!
This modern, architecturally inspiring villa is a bright, relaxing oasis. The house itself is breathtaking - with a beautiful outdoor pool, huge open rooftop, outdoor showers, gazebo area, kitchen and dining room surrounded by glass.. with a gorgeous view of incredible vegetation - enormous aloe plants, cacti of all shapes and sizes, blooming flowers, and plants I have never even seen before! The staff was so kind, considerate, warm & welcoming. No exaggeration, Betty cooked some of the best meals I've ever had. Amazing soups, salads, plantains, jerk chicken, ALL the good stuff.
From the house, we walked down a staircase and were IN the ocean! We swam and went snorkeling every day, it was so much fun. If you keep walking along the beach (very close by) you can visit the corner stores, small shops, bars, and restaurants. When we walked on the road instead of the beach, we were greeted with friendly locals and TONS of adorable goats. I miss them all already! I will 100% be returning to Villa Elia.
Villa Elia hangs off a cliff overlooking a beautiful bay and the views are without compare. The house was clean and spacious and beautifully decorated from top to bottom. Staff was friendly and helpful and gladly assisted us whenever we needed.
I highly recommend renting this amazing space if you want to experience a relaxing and quiet vacation with a private beach area. I hope to return soon!
Where do I begin? This place is magical. Heaven on earth. From the 180 degree view of the sea to the incredible care takers (Betty, Alicia, Chut), chefs and angels who cooked for us and made the trip unforgettable. I really can't recommend this place enough. Every detail in the house was thought out so carefully and diligently. Highly highly recommend!
This is gorgeous, rural Jamaica where we experienced the countryside with nature all around us. If you're looking for developed beaches with scores of bars and restaurants, this villa isn't for you. Goats graze just beyond the shore and the only litter is driftwood. Every morning after Betty and Eleicia served us a healthy breakfast feast (ask for their special de-tox tea with ginger and tumeric, it's marvelous!), we took a short walk along the beach to loll in one of several coastal turquoise coves. Lunch was prepared on our own with scrumptious leftovers from the morning. We luxuriated in the shade of the patio parasols, sipping our drinks, reading our books or happily gabbing in the pool with the expansive sea views inspiring our afternoons. At four o'clock we grabbed glasses, chilled wine and cameras and headed up to the roof to watch the nightly sunset show. Meanwhile Betty and Eleicia were preparing another dinner-to-die-for and our appetites were again indulged. The caretaker Chut was there in an instant if we had the merest request ( help, the parasol isn't opening!). The home has a zen vibe, an exotic blend with nature that lends itself to relaxation and contentment. The photos of the house are exact. A ride in Captain Ted's boat is a must, especially if dolphins are in the area. We had dinner one night at the nearby Frenchman's Reef by the sea, more of an outing than anything else, and spent a fun afternoon hanging out at the Lobster Pot, a beachside seafood shack where we saw our just-caught fish arrive fresh from the boat. Recommended - surf shoes for walking some coastal terrain, bug spray for evenings if you're at the beach after dark and a reading light if you stay up later than your partner. We're definitely going back!
