Rumagin Villa - Reader Reports & Opinion
Caroline Carter from U.K. visited in April 2013 and awarded
Rumagin is a comfortable and spacious villa in a great position. Each of the three double bedrooms have their own bathroom and there is plenty of relaxation space on the first floor overlooking the well kept pool and gardens and with views over to Pigeon Point. There are two good restaurants and the beach within walking distance and other lovely beaches only a short drive away. It is next door to the Bird reserve and gets lots of interesting feathered visitors and is also an excellent base for exploring the north of the island, whilst only a short drive from the airport.

Rumagin is an ideal home not house for a relaxing family vacation. What I Loved most, was the open varanda where one can experience the clean crisp air. The hill provided a great early morninglate evening walk followed by a dip in the pool, heaven.
We were welcomed to a very cleaned, well maintained pool. All of this would not have been possible without very high standard planning & organizing by Gillian. She is very exceptional and trust me, please have her(Gillian) organize your vacation, you will not be disappointed. Gillian thank you for a ensuring we had a wonderful time.

Woke up to stunning views. Great kitchen, cooked every day . Great pool. Famous Grafton beach is only a one minute drive. Very private and quiet....just what we were looking for. Night time, poolside bbq was the best.
Next time I would walk with plug in bug repellant or buy citronella candles as the mosquitoes came out every evening like clockwork. Other than that it was a dream villa...esp if u have a full house.
Gillian and Helen were a pleasure to deal with. Very accomodating and always checking to ensure a comfortable stay.

The villa is absolutely amazing. I visited with 3 cousins, 2 where from Miami. We wanted a change of scenery from the normal hustle and bustle of life in our respective homes. Rumagin is ideal for pure relaxation! The villa has an open floor plan which is excellent for entertaining and the pool is quite large and has a nice depth - a very good thing for us since my cousins enjoyed doing their nightly antics in the pool! The villa is in a very quiet area and has a very homey feel.
Another highlight was the well equipped kitchen and the grill which was in the pool area. We decided to have a BBQ on the last night there, I can't think of anything that was lacking in the kitchen. Quite nice, there is even a dishwasher! What a relief to have one!
The process of checking in and checking out was so simple, I recommend speaking with Gillian or Helen, they are both very accomodating and a joy to interact with, they definitely helped to make my stay stress free. I won't hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone, I honestly think I had the best sleep I've had in quite a while at Rumagin!

We had an absolutely great week long stay at Rumagin Villa. The house offers an unpretentious charm which is hard to beat; absolutely stunning views in every direction- lush greenery or the beautiful ocean greets you at every turn and the wrap around verandah allows you to make the most of these wonderful views. The villa itself is nicely appointed; 3 decent sized bedrooms each with air conditioning and en suite bathrooms, and a good sized living-dining area equipped with a TV, as well as a well-stocked galley style kitchen. The pool is a good size and located in a sunny spot which ensures great sun bathing when you don`t fancy the 10 minute trek to the nearest beach. The villa is comfortable and its simple but elegant charm suited us down to the ground. The daily maid service ensured we could really enjoy a proper holiday- free from bed making and cleaning! We would definitely stay at Rumagin again.
