MEALS: Before departing for your vacation, we will ask you to fill out a Food & Beverage Request form. This will tell us what you would like for your first dinner and breakfast. This means that the cook will go out and pre purchase groceries to make for your first meals. Once you are in Jamaica, you can then reimburse her for the groceries. At this time you can then discuss the types of food you would like for the rest of your stay. If anyone has any allergies or food dislikes, etc please let the cook know since they are very versatile and able to prepare a wide range of dishes/menus.
Cost of the meals are the grocery bills that have accumulated for the items used to prepare the meals for your group while at the villa. If you are not going to eat at the villa, then no groceries are used/no additional cost warranted. If you are going to eat out, simply tell the cook when you will not be requiring a meal so that one will not be prepared.
The cook will do the grocery shopping for you. If you need certain things from the supermarket, you can just make a list and she will get them. Remember you are on vacation! If you would like to go to the grocery store, you are also welcome to go and see what is available.
A good budget is about $35-45 per adult for 3 meals and about $20 per child per day. Meal costs are variable and depend on what you choose, this will affect the budget. Choosing items such as: lobster, shrimp, or imported meats will increase your budget.
Paying for groceries:
You may plan to pay for groceries and gratuities in cash. Both US and JA Dollars are welcomed. You may also accompany your cook to the supermarket and liquor store where your credit card will be accepted. Most commercial establishments accept credit cards. Small roadside merchants and craftmen will require cash.
I came to the island with a large group who wanted a variety of experiences and this rental was exactly what we needed. First of all the owner was incredibly helpful and responsive during our planning/pre-arrival which really helped. Then upon arrival the team exceeded our expectations on many counts. The tour company used for airport transfer was excellent. Their reps met us just outside of customs/immigration and took excellent care to get us to our villa. Once there we found the staff to be friendly, warm, and extremely helpful. Audley (sp?), Juliet, and Ulete worked non-stop to ensure that we had everything we needed and then some. We were a large and "lively" bunch - which could not have been easy - but they were there for us the entire trip. The house itself is located in a very nice area of Mobay and is within an easy drive to local attractions as well as food and drink. We took advantage of the option to have a driver for our group during our entire stay and it was well WELL worth the cost. Desmond was absolutely amazing and went well above and beyond our expectations as well. What more can I say... this trip exceeded expectations and I personally can't wait for my next trip to Jamaica!
Everything went great. Everyone loved the house and my wife loved her stay and birthday cake. Pardon me, I was going to write a review on homeaway earlier this week, just got busy with work. Thanks for taking care of our large group of 12. Can't wait to re-visit again.
Whenever I stay in Montego bay it's only with the best staff and the best property in Ironshore. My family and I have made it an annual event to come to Jamaica and the Imani Ashia is the best place we have been so far. I've stayed in other places but for the last three years the Imani Ashia is our only destination. For the staff; you have the best that Jamaica can offer and they treat you like family. The house is amazing and the scenery is breath taking.
For the cost a good value. Not luxurious but clean. Staff very kind and attentive. Safe. Real feel of Jamaica cuisine. Would go back
Imani Ashia Villa was a wonderful experience. The property was very clean and well maintained. We received EXCELLENT service from the villa staff-Juilet, Uelete, and Odley. They were friendly, attentive, and professional. Highly Recommend it!!!
We had a wonderful time at Imani Ashia Villa. William was great to deal with leading up to our stay and even checked on us during our stay. It couldn't have been easier. There weer 8 of us in our party and the house was spacious and surpassed all of our expectations. The rooms were large, everything was well maintained and the pool was great. We felt very safe and comforatble. The location was perfect for us - not too far from the airport and convenient to shops and the beach and restaurants. I enjoyed jogs through the neighborhood each morning.
What really made our stay special were Audley, Juliette and Miss Ulette. Audley is the caretaker and took care of everything while we were there. Juliette is the housekeeper, helps with meals and clean-up and kept us in clean clothes. Miss Ulette is an amazing cook and introduced us to several Jamaican specialities and also catered to the vegetariains in our group. It is impossible to overstate how special each of these three people are and how they made us feel so welcome and cared for us so well!
We would love to return to Jamaica and this Villa in the future to explore those parts of the island we missed this time and to re-live our fantastic experieince. Our best vacation ever!
