About Karen Ffrench
I am Jamaican and love it. Decided what better way to share my culture with visitors than opening up my second home to give others the opportunity to experience our infamous culture!

Beautiful home in an incredible setting.
Four of us (two couples) stayed at Karen's house for two weeks at the end of February 2019, we wish it could have been two months. The house and deck were wonderful and very clean, the setting was paradise. Any questions we had and Karen was only a phone call away and was extremely responsive and helpful. The wireless internet in the home worked great, just as Karen said it did, making calls back to and from the US absolutely effortless and free. We met and conversed with some great people in the neighborhood, both residents and guests from a variety of countries. Originally we anticipated spending much time at 7-Mile Beach down the road and the neighboring Bloody Bay Beach (which is easily accessed via foot path along the water from the community) but we soon saw little reason to leave this beautiful place. We did take the Scuba Caribe snorkel/cave cruise to Rick's and Margaritaville from Bloody Bay Beach and definitely recommend it for it's beautiful scenery. We also ventured out to downtown Negril several times for dinner and a few times for supplies. We also enjoyed fresh lobster and cold drinks a few times on Bloody Bay Beach.
We can't compliment Karen's recommended driver Balvin enough. Being our third trip to Jamaica we have experienced a multitude of drivers, including on this trip. Balvin is truly one of a kind, an extremely professional and cautious driver with the cleanest vehicle I have ever seen. Driving in Jamaica is not for the faint of heart and we could not have been more appreciative of Balvin's expertise and his sincere desire to keep us safe. He is a wonderful and truly honest man and will always be our driver when visiting.
As for the people of Jamaica...…...we love them, and they (along with the great food) are one of the reasons we will keep coming back!
Beautiful condo steps from the beach
It was a wonderful holiday! The condo is a very nice size, nicely decorated, and well appointed in a very nice and secure area. We didn’t lack for anything when cooking. The condo really is just steps from a beautiful beach that is well maintained daily by a nice man named Randal. If you enjoy snorkeling, you can go from the beach. We saw many interesting and brightly colored fish. The property is further than we thought from 7 mile beach, but we used the same driver throughout our time and he was always available. Karen does an excellent job keeping the condo clean and overall it was one of our best vacations. Would definitely go back!
Family All Girls Vacation
Amazing, Awesome, Fantastic time!!!!! I have stayed at Karen's place in Montego-bay before and absolutely loved it but Negril was beyond amazing. The view, beach, and pool were all big hits. Miss Karen, the housekeeper was amazing and on 3 occasions the food she prepared for us awesome. We stayed for only 11 days but I will definitely return especially to the Negril place. The beach is right there and barely takes a minute to reach and the pool a 2-minute walk. We arrived late to check-in but Karen was awesome to have someone waiting for us and go over everything, we had the place totally to ourselves and would have liked to stay longer. She checked in on us but not really needed cause Miss Karen (housekeeper) took awesome care of us and on occasion took us to the grocery store for more supplies. There was never any security issues, even slept with the back door open (unknowingly) one night, the area was very quiet and not a lot of people around. We had the pool and beach to ourselves on numerous occasions. Karen Love, thank you, we had an awesome time. See you next year.
Absolutely beautiful beachfront condo in Negril
My mom and I stayed here for a little over a week in late February and we kept saying to each other, "This is paradise!" You just can't beat the location of this place - right on the beach, absolutely gorgeous views, lots of windows and doors for easy indoor/outdoor living, and accessible to shops, restaurants, and other beaches in Negril. The condo was wonderfully decorated and felt homey. Little Bay Country Club is a quiet, adorable community with pastel-colored houses and friendly neighbors and vacationers. Karen is super responsive and ready to help with anything you may need. (The TV in the master bedroom wasn't working, and she was able to have someone come fix it towards the end of our stay.)
There are just minor reasons why we would not give the full 5 stars. While the beach was wonderful, we felt it could have been maintained better, there was a lot of debris and seaweed that had washed up even before we arrived that were still there when we left. Also, we were a little confused about the helper's role, because we were doing most of the tidying ourselves throughout the week. (That could be because of our personalities, though!)
Overall, we loved our stay and are already planning on returning next year. Grateful to have discovered this gem in Negril.
Wonderful vacation, exactly as described:)
This was our fourth trip to Negril, but the first time we were bringing our 5- & 8-year old along for the vacation. The large communal pool was a big selling point for us. It is exactly as described, and I don't believe I ever saw more than 6 people in it at any given time. The water was clean and clear. The view of the ocean from there was my favorite aspect. The beach was exactly as described, which I found most shocking. It is truly private, and never overcrowded. There was always a portion of the beach for us to use all to ourselves. I should also add this was during President's Week when most US kids are off from school and I still found it to be not crowded. The view seen is completely as accurate, and was one of my favorite aspects of the master bedroom. Karen (owner) was a pleasure to deal with before the trip, and Karen (housekeeper) was a great help with tidying up, dish washing, and helping with the laundry. The unit is well decorated, comfortable, and exactly as described. Little Bay Country Club was a great community and we always felt safe with the 24-hour security. I even saw a German Shepherd that patrolled the grounds at night, which I thought was a great aspect they never even mentioned. The location is ideal to the resorts, the three awesome beaches (this private one, bloody bay beach, and 7-mile beach), the strip before the town of Negril (which was where we ate most nights), and the town of Negril itself. We would highly consider another trip to Negril and another stay at Karen's rental. It was truly an amazing week!
It was my pleasure and look forward to your return!! :)
Perfect vacation at a beautiful house. We never wanted to leave.
We had wonderful vacation at Karen's house! 4 of us stayed February, 2018. Karen was responsive to our questions from the beginning of the process and met us at the property along with Karen the housekeeper. She gave us a cell phone to use and a card for Balvin who we called to drive us everywhere. Karen arranged for a pickup from Montego Bay and we were able to stop at the Mega Mart to buy groceries for the week on our way. The house is beautiful and Karen the housekeeper came every day to do laundry and clean. The back deck is steps from the beach and we swam and snorkeled every day. The snorkeling is wonderful. We walked on the path through the Bush to Bloody Bay one day. There are many vendors (who all want you to look at their booths) some resorts and boat rental places. We ate lobster that we chose and was grilled on the beach for us. Balvin took us to Rick's Cafe one night. We went on a catamaran cruise for snorkeling, cave swimming, jerk chicken meal and the sunset. Balvin took us on a day excursion to Black River, YS Falls, and the Appleton Rum Estate which I highly recommend. On the last day Balvin took us to Margarativille and we strolled up and down 7 mile beach. So beautiful. It was always so nice to return to the peace and comfort of Karen's house at the end of the day to sit on the deck and listen to the waves. It is secluded so you will need to use a cab whenever you want to go somewhere but for us renting a car and driving ourselves would have been too intimidating. The beach and pool were quiet and never busy. This is the perfect place to stay away from the crowds and all-inclusive resorts. Thank you Karen for a perfect vacation.
Negril is a laid back community where time doesn't exist! Everything is easy going ... a place to totally relax. the community tends to be more of a rustic setting ... bars and restaurants! This is the total island living experience.
