6 of us stayed at the apartment. two of the party in their late 70's, one in their 50's and three in their mid 30's.
The apartment really was like a 'Home From Home' in a good way. Clean, light and airy and the ceramic tiled floors were lovely to walk bare footed on especially on the really hot days. It took us a while to figure out how to use the washer/dryer but thanks to Google we did it. The beds were very comfortable and the AC in the bedrooms much appreciated on the hot nights but as another reviewer mentioned there's no AC in the main living area which can get really hot and muggy but there is ceiling fans in all the rooms (except kitchen and bathroom) and the windows/shutters can all be opened to allow a cooling breeze to blow through.
In the kitchen is an electric hob/oven, a microwave, a dish washer and fridge/freezer as well as plates, bowls, mugs, drinking glasses, a blender and all the utensils needed to cook a great meal. Sitting out front was a evening regular and the perfect place to wind down and witness the wonderful array of stars in the night sky.
The street views were amazing with all the beautiful array of plants and flowers and neighbours were very friendly and would always wave and wish us good day. All the staff who kept the development clean and safe do an amazing job and work really hard.
The pool was lovely and clean and definitely needed on a hot day. The location of the apartment was perfect as we could easily get to Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and all the local attractions. One of the nicest things after being out all day was returning to a calm, clean and safe environment.
The supermarket located at the front of the development was very handy and has a good stock of products and very helpful friendly staff but it's not as cheap as other supermarkets we visited.
I would highly recommend this apartment and plan to return with my family in 2019.
I stayed in this villa for a week, with 5 of my girl cousins. The villa was perfect, great size big enough for the 6 of us and most importantly safe! The pool was lovely and a great size. The drive is perfect for a car. If you choose to get one while you stay in Jamaica. Henry was very helpful and easy to contact when needed. Apart from a few issues with the washing machine and other minor issues in the kitchen (nothing that will effect your stay) the villa was perfect. I defo recommend a stay here. I am sure I will be back or one of my cousins will. Thank you Henry for a great stay!
The Richmond Development is new and homes nice. The security is excellent and the community pool is the highlight. The house is a short walking distance to the pool. The Country Store is another highlight. They have everything you need, and is the cleanest store that I was in two weeks in Jamaica.
Like most homes in Jamaica, this home only have A/C in the bedrooms. So it can be little warm in the kitchen during the hottest part of the day... This is usually when we enjoyed the pool.
In all, the place had everything we needed. Plus the location was perfect for our excursions to Ochi and Falmouth.
Our stay at Richmond Estates – Luxury Villa was just perfect! From the moment of booking to the end of our stay at this wonderful villa the professionalism of the owner and satisfying accommodations was truly top notch.
Our decision to stay at this home was based on the location and upon arrival we were not disappointed with the condition of the home, and everything appears as shown online. The rate for the villa and the booking process through FlipKey was fairly easy and allowed us to plan ahead our expenses for this very budget friendly vacation.
The home was centrally located to the pool, children’s playground, and within walking distance to the “Country Store”. Most days we headed to the pool which is quite large, well maintained and staffed for convenience with a drink station and currency exchange option if you choose. We did meet some nice vacationers by the pool house and even attended a games night on our last day that was hosted by a social committee and well attended by very friendly residents.
I cannot stress enough how safe and at home our family felt in this secured gated community……from now on this will be my preferred choice for a vacation spot.
