Linford from UK
The place, scenery and people providing the services were excellent. The villa was amazing - exquisite, large, cool, bright and airy rooms, etc. The place was peaceful during the days and nights and it could be an inspiration for writers and thinkers. The scenery was well above expectations, e.g. great view of Ocho Rios, the sea, cruise ships, and son on. However, what made the stay so wonderful were the staff who were so respectful, helpful, good company, and always down-to-earth. I only wished that we could have stayed longer. I would definitely consider booking the villa on future holidays. Well done!

I was part of the Sweeney party that came on 5th Nov 06, once I got used to the atrium and lizards coming in it was definitely somewhere I could stay for a longer period. Rossetta, Lorraine, George the security guard were absolutley wonderful and made use feel very welcome. George the gardener was so knowledgeable about the plants and the garden as a whole, we couldn't fault the service they provided and miss them lots. I really hope I can come back and see them. Beautiful house clean and well looked after, keep up the good work!

I stayed at Barbary last April - it was glorious. I enjoyed the privacy of the property and my family had a great time. When we wanted to play tourist we just walked into town...its easy going down hill! On the way back we hired a local taxi and in the meantime went to the beach, the casino, shopping and had the BEST Jamaican food! I will return!
This place is soemthing you dream about, once rented the place I wanted to call it my home. The environment is awesome, you have so much beauty to enjoy, you need a week to really take it all in. Ocho Rios is the place to be, Barbary completes anyones idea of a true vacation!
About the owner
I've owned Barbary for over 8 years now. It is my favorite vacation destination! I love to relax at the villa and forget about the stresses back home. The staff have been with the villa much longer than we have and treat it as if it were theirs. George keeps the gardens and pool in gorgeous condition.
We love to have guests enjoy the view, the amenities, the staff, and the ambiance of living in a Jamaican villa that sits on top of the world! Welcome!
