Star Apple House Staff & Service

We have four dedicated staff members at Star Apple (Michael, Steve, Viv, and Pansy) who have all been with us for years and instinctively know how to deliver the un-intrusive service and feel good factor that our guests return to year after year. A Star Apple day starts early with Michael preparing the pool and sun deck/lounge area for the days activities. At your request, coffee/tea and fruit can be available on the veranda for the early risers from 7am. Full breakfast is served when all our guests are ready, but usually around 9. After that the day is yours. Pansy can handle grocery shopping on your behalf if required, but cooking is her thing. Her Jamaican cooking is legendary ! She will also pre-purchase your first few meals plus pantry staples, then if you wish, finish the week’s shopping after meeting with you to discuss your preferences. Many of our guests prefer doing the supermarket shopping themselves (including us !) but Pansy will always be at hand to accompany new visitors . A typical grocery budget for a week is US$300 approx. per adult . At your request, our housekeeper will care for every service detail, from providing a supply of fresh linens and towels, Lighting candles and turning down your bed each evening…She’s also the go-to person if you require her laundry services. Michael and Steve will maintain the pool and grounds immaculately each day,. He can also show you around the grounds and introduce you to our many tropical fruit trees… Wearing his “Butler Hat”, Michael will serve, tend the bar and generally facilitate your stay. Available on requests are masseuses, nannies, babysitters and drivers. Note: Staff gratuity is not included in the rates, it is however at your discretion We suggest 10-15% of your total stay cost.
