Our vacation and stay and Pineapple Cottage was wonderful. Armeda (Marcia) and Quata and Andy made it look effortless. The food and service was excellent. It was fantastic having a hot tub and our own pool. We will be back.

Thank You

Dear Peggy (and Pinky),

Thank you so very much for our lovely week at Pinnapple villa 2. The Villa is beautiful and the pool is a huge plus. (I would suggest adding a handrail by the stairs since I slipped and fell there.)
Special thanks to Pinky. Pinky you are a star!
I am including some of our pictures for your enjoyment.

Thanks again and be well.

A Great Vacation

five stars

Hello Peggy:

It was wonderful to meet you and Henry. It felt like I'd known you all my life!! You are both wonderful people and I'm so glad we were able to become friends.
We had a great vacation. Your staff could not have been nicer and more accommodating. Actually the day we left the girls from Pineapple Village came over to
say our goodbyes and I (along with a couple of others) were crying. I really didn't want to leave them behind. .
I will be in touch at some point to look forward to visiting one of your properties again. When you see the girls next please give them my love. Please keep in touch.


**Response from Peggy Wall (Chin)


Just a few lines to let you know, I am so pleased I got to meet you and that you are such a fun person.
Hope you had a great time and in case you didn’t I would like to know why
This is how we improve and make it better for your next trip.
You all seemed so relaxed except for the occasional head cold etc.Is this too much snow for you or do you do the slopes?
Take care keep warm and healthy.

Kind regards.

This Trip Was The Best Ever

five stars

Hello Peggy,

Let me start by saying this trip has been the best ever for so many reasons. Our weather was perfect, perfect, perfect for all 10 days. What can I say about the staff: Gwenny, a grand lady always eager to listen and learn even with all the years of experience. Angela, well as one of Gwenny’s daughters, the fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree. She was so very helpful and attentive to our questions and needs. Pinkey is always a delight to be around. We had the chance to meet some new staff members like Sally, Rose and I think we had a Rasheen for a day or two. They all made us feel right at home, served us very well and were very polite. Oh yes, Andy. At first, Andy may have been a little unsure of this group since many of us mix our own cocktails, prepare our own snack trays, etc., but he was eager to serve and to learn so it wasn’t to long until our group members were calling on Andy to practice his mixology and master the cheese slicer I brought them and arrange snack trays as we languished by the pool. Everybody loved Andy and many of us thanked Richard for his efforts in bringing him up to speed.

Of course, with this being our 8th consecutive trip Deb and I went immediately to our room, (3) and noticed the changes with a tv, dresser and bed, (very comfortable). That new Samsung fridge is awesome and that ice maker, wow, our group put that thing to test especially when Andy is mixing up anywhere from 4 to 10 gin and tonics at a time. Very nice addition and very well placed. We used to store our cases of soda, tonic, water and good ole Red Stripe back in there and invariably bumped our heads numerous times so that’s what I mean by very well placed and the fact that it’s close to the kitchen. I noticed the material put on the surface of Dukes was also used on the railing around Pineapple. I understand it’s to last for quite a while so very low maintenance. I like low maintenance.

You really hit the ball out of the park with those Yamaha four seater golf carts. I think the option to rent or not is the only way to go with carts. As you know from my suggestion a year or two back about the carts that my wife has some mobility problems due to bad knees. Walking any distance, to many steps to go up or down are a no-no. We use wheelchair assistance in our travel. This trip was the first in years that Deb had the opportunity to tour Silver Sands, socialize with our group down at the beach bar with a pina colada in hand and even go noodleling (those colored foam flotation tubes) with other ladies from our group in that beautiful water. All of this I have you to thank for Peggy so thank you, thank you, thank you.

We are planning on doing Pineapple Villa tee shirts for 2015. Just working on some ideas like maybe yellow tees and /or polo’s with green ink and /or embroidery. Will get back to you later with more details and request for sizes for you and husband. My treat.

All our best and warmest regards,

Tom & Deb

Great Stay!

It was great, I rated it 100!

Dream Vacation in Jamaica

five stars

We have been going to Silver Sands Estates since 1986 for our winter or spring vacation and began staying in Pineapple One or Pineapple Cottage in 2007 and have been returning to either one of the Villas since 2007. You cannot top this vacation and believe me we have been to Hawaii, Spain, Mexico, England, Aruba, St. Thomas and numerous places in the U.S and this vacation is by far the number one of them all.

Truly, this vacation is by far the best there is. The only vacation you take where you arrive with clean clothes and leave with clean clothes. The staff at Pineapple Cottage, Pinky who prepares excellent meals, Andrii who pays extreme attention to detail in maintaining the cottage's cleanliness,and Richard who is extremely attentive to your every need while at the Villa. I almost forgot to mention Billy Cain and also Ki Ki (Kenroy) Brown and Tony Brown, who are by far the best drivers in Jamaica and stand ready to take you anywhere in Jamaica you choose to visit and provide interesting tales along the way. This by far is a vacation you need to add to your bucket list of things to do. If you've never tried a Villa vacation now is time to make the call to Ms. Peggy Wall, who by far is the best Villa owner I have ever dealt with in renting Villas at Silver Sands. Ms. Peggy stands ready to make your vacation along with her staff a vacation you will remember forever and one you want to repeat over and over again. Hats off to all the ladies of the villa and gentleman - Gwenny, Angelia, Judith, Pinky, Andrii and Richard as well as the drivers Billy Cain, Ki Ki (Kenroy) Brown and Tony Brown. These individuals all go above and beyond to make your Jamaican vacation a memorable one. I could write a book on this vacation. However, I'll just say we thought our vacation at the Pineapple Villas who never be topped but this year they all out did themselves and it was by far one of the most enjoyable and relaxing vacations we'd taken.

Pineapple Villa ~ Jamaican Utopia in Silver Sands!

five stars

My family has stayed in many vacation homes/villas all over the world in many different locations. Typically we have a group between 8-20 made up of singles, couples and families of all ages. Pineapple Villa exceeded all of our expectations! Not one person in our group could find something they weren't 100% satisfied with! The villa itself was just fabulous! Extremely clean, very spacious, well kept, beautiful furnishings, we never ever felt crowded with so much room having multiple family areas and so much common space! It felt like home from the moment we stepped in the door! It has abundant patio space upstairs and down with seating for everyone. The pool and hot tub are sparkling clean and nice and big. And wow what great ocean views! The villa is in a real cozy gated community with a nice lil bar, restaraunt and store just at the beach which is literally just a short walk out your door. They also have activities such as ping pong, snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, windsurfing, boogie boarding, etc. right there at the beach! And wow! It is a gorgeous beach with more than enough beach chairs for guests to use. There were even nightly events such as crab races, karaoke, art shows and entertainment in the evenings. Just a great area for singles, couples or families to enjoy as much or as little as you'd like. Everyone is so friendly and we never once felt unwelcome or unsafe. The staff at the villa goes above and beyond! We left leaving teary eyed as if we were leaving family behind. Everything was always clean and tidied and our laundry was washed and folded daily. Our meals were so unbelievable! We had a menu made before arriving and they prepared everything just as we liked or better! We honestly can't find a single negative about Pineapple Villa! It was a vacation unlike no other! We have already booked our return trip and you can count on seeing us back for many return visits in years to come!

We stayed at Pineapple Cottage for Jamaica Jazz and Blues in January and we loved it! We loved the fact that we had access to the internet, the ability to call family in the states and in Jamaica, and those helpful ceiling fans that ward off mosquitoes at nights. We fell in love with the beauty and space Pineapple Cottage offered. Andrea was great. She made sure that we had ample meals, and was good company. Pineapple Cottage was really a home away from home. We are so excited to come back!!

One of the most enjoyable times our lives.

five stars

My family and I visited Pineapple Cottage in august and wish we didn't have to leave. We were so happy to have had the pleasure of meeting andrea and enjoying her company and her cooking! Excellent!! The accomodations made us feel like we were at home. Having access to telephones and a computer was an added bonus. We were able to keep in touch with our loved ones back in the states. We hope to visit again in the very near future and can't wait to see andrea again and enjoy the beautiful accomodations.

10 Year anniversary Trip

five stars

Our 10 year anniversary was a lifetime experience and it was all because we were able to stay at the villas. The amenities, staff and service we received were all remarkable. The villas were very clean, home-like and comfortable. The beds in Pineapple Two were extremely comfortable!! The only thing we would suggest changing would be the temperature of the hot tub at Pineapple Two, it never would get warm and was often even cold. Overall, we give the villas a 100!

Many Thanks to Peggy and Pauline at Pineapple 2. We had an amazing week there and would have loved to have stayed longer.

Relaxing and a chance for the family to reconnect

five stars

Pauline is your greatest asset to us. She is our family now after so many years. We love her so much and are immediately so comfortable once we get there. Your place is beautiful and very well kept up. The beds are so comfortable and the plumbing has been great. It is close to the beach another great plus. Also, love the extra fans you have installed in key areas.

Thanksgiving in paradise!

five stars

Our family went to Pineapple 2 for the Thanksgiving holiday. We loved the comfort and convenience of the house- it was fantastic! Pauline and Gwendolyn took great care for our dining and comfort - we were totally spoiled. They accomodated every need we had and did it with great pleasure. Two of our family had to work remotely several days, and the internet connection and phone service made that easy and convenient.The beach was easy to get to and our 19 month old grandson had a ball in the poool and at the beach. Our favorite part was the ourside porch where we could "hang out" and spend precious time together in the warmth of Jamaica.

Perfect Getaway at Pineapple Villa and Cottage

five stars

We were celebrating a 50th birthday and brought a large group to Pineapple Villa and Cottage. The accommodations were very comfortable and the staff was wonderful. They pulled off large meals without a hitch, were extremely friendly and made us all feel at home. We didn't want to leave! The owners were also very helpful in making the arrangements and easy to work with. I would highly recommend Pineapple Villa and Cottage and would return without hesitation.

Beautiful, Peaceful & Relaxing Vacation

This was a wonderful vacation. Pauline was the greatest! Food could not be beat! The only setback was no a/C in living quarters (which we are accustomed to) I would recommed it to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation. Thanks Peggy

Very relaxed and pampered

My husband and I really enjoyed our long weekend at Pineapple Cottage. We usually visit Negril, but our time in Silver Sands was a nice change of pace. Pauline was absolutely wonderful - she made sure that we had everything we wanted and her cooking was fabulous. If lobster is in season when you visit, her fresh lobster with garlic butter sauce is top notch! We found the environment very relaxing - it was easy to decompress and forget our cares at least for a few days. I highly recommend Pineapple Cottage - we will return!

Always Wanting To Return

five stars

I am always wanting to return to Pineapple Cottage. It is tastefully and comfortably decorated, clean and well cared for by a friendly staff. It is our vacation destination of choice because it is there that we are most able to relax, enjoy a beautiful beach, read by the pool, spend time as a family, and enjoy delicious homemade local foods.

Exceptional housekeeper/cook

five stars

My husband & I along with another couple spent 6 days at Pineapple Cottage. The housekeeper was really exceptional. Her cooking was amazing, & our meals were always on time & beautifully presented. She made helpful suggestions & was always smiling & happy to attend to our needs.
The villa was clean & adequately stocked. Our friends loved the fact that internet access was included in the price, as were telephone calls home to family & friends in the us & Canada.
The 2 minor problems we reported were promptly dealt with, & we were actually thanked for bringing these matters to the owners attention (1. a standing fan, as the verandah got very hot in mid afternoon; & 2. the DVD in the living room did not work.)



Our favorite place to relax

This is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The comfortable and spacious accommodations are so much nicer than even the best hotel rooms and seemed like they are designed to make it easy for the traveler. Best of all though are the warm and caring housekeeping staff. Pauline took great care of us and fed us like royalty! Of course, the warm Jamaican sun, the lovely Caribbean ocean, and friendly community of Silver Sands all contribute to a perfect vacation spot!
