We had a one week stay in TCI and chose Villa Jayla. It is extremely quiet and private with a superb swimming pool. There are houses on either side but the property has dense trees/vegetation that make it feel secluded. Our favorite beach was Taylor Bay just minutes away, but some days we just spent pool side looking over the ocean. It is a remote location so dining out took 20 min drive to Grace Bay area, but we never minded the trip. At night, the property automatically lit up with driveway lights etc. which was nice to come home to. There is a security system as well, so we always felt safe. The property is in good condition, could use some minor TLC outside, but nothing that really bothered us. Its a/c works well when needed, wifi was adequate and Rhonnda was a very accommodating host.
The kayak was fun to go out on Silly Creek, but really nothing can beat the pool and the view. Highly recommended

Myself and 12 year old daughter stayed at Villa Jayla, August 5-10, 2015 and had a glorious time. Rhondda was a wonderful host and her assistant, Anika - top notch. The house was clean and nicely decorated and was equipped with everything a family would need (food aside) for a wonderful vacation... Even down to the sunscreen. While vacationing, we often find ourselves itching to explore. However, we never felt the need to leave. We spent a few hours at Taylor and Sapodilla Bay, but neither compared to what we had back at Jayla. I'd get up in the morning and enjoy a cup of coffee on the veranda, make a light breakfast and become a poolside lounge lizard ALL DAY LONG. I don't think I've ever been so relaxed in my life. The view of Chalk Sound was breathtaking, and the property so private, I found my daughter skinny dipping one afternoon while preparing lunch. It truly is a magical place, and I would recommend Villa Jayla to anyone who is looking to stay in Chalk Sound. We spent a total of 14 nights in TCI and the best part of our vacation was our 5 nights at Villa Jayla - hands down...... You just have to experience it for yourself.
