Hello Sharon,

Thank you so much for all your help in preparing my family for our trip. We had a wonderful time and the staff in both the cottage and villa were marvelous. We could not have asked for a better vacation. Thank you.

Warmly,

Janice S.

Dear Linda,

The staff keep the place spotless clean, and there is ample room to spread out. The delightful cook helped us to establish our grocery budget. I recommend taking the Linda Smith advice and joining your cook at the supermarket for your initial grocery stock so that she knows what you like, how much you intend to eat, and spend. The cove is very small and private, the small pool clean and adequate, and the complementary kayaks handy. Discovery Bay is pleasantly undeveloped and not at all like the ubiquitous 4-star all-inclusive hotel destinations. You will be in close contact with the local community which is a pleasure as you are perpetually greeted with broad welcoming smiles.

We had a wonderful stay at Linga Awile and definitely plan on visiting again! The staff were so welcoming and friendly. They were all a joy! Casita’s food was amazing and she shared her cooking tips/ingredients with us! Dawn kept everything immaculate and we enjoyed her beautiful smile. Daniel was very accommodating and answered our many questions. He is also an amazing cook as he grilled two different nights for us – filet and jerk chicken and they were both incredible! Daniel went above and beyond on his part and the boys greatly appreciated it.

Prudi S.

We had an AMAZING time. The house was the perfect blend of comfort and 'authentic.' We loved the open-air living and dining areas and then retreating to our A/C bedrooms at night. The staff was so fun and delightful and we really enjoyed getting to know them. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect trip -- from the planning services Exceptional Villas provided to the accommodations, food, and personalities of the villa team. We loved the house and our experience there that we barely left. Thank you SO much.
