Tamarind Apartment.

This studio apartment is newly built and is situated next to the pool at the rear of the property. It is designed with luxury in mind and will accommodate a single couple.

Swimming Pool.

The pool is a recent addition to the property. Many of our guests had previously commented that a swimming pool was the only thing missing. Now our guests can spend many a relaxing day lazing around the pool on a sun lounger while sipping a cool drink as the kids play around in the water. The pool measures 25ft by 15ft and is ideal for children being only 3ft deep at the shallow end where the steps enter and 5ft at the deep end.

Further details

Nigel the house manager

Our 'House Manager' Nigel resides at the rear of the property in a self-contained apartment he shares with his partner Renee. Nigel maintains the gardens and the swimming pool and terrace to the highest of standards. Apart from security, which is one of his other roles at the villa, he is always happy to offer his services as chef to ensure your holiday is enjoyed to the full.

Bed and Breakfast Option

Many of our guests prefer to book with breakfast included. Nigel charges separately for this service and offers great value for money. He is renowned for his cooking and what better way to start the day than with a good hearty Jamaican breakfast served outside on the Pool Terrace. Your party can pre-order a varied weekly breakfast menu by speaking to Nigel when you arrive at the villa.

Using the villa for outside parties and Wedding Receptions

The gardens are ideal for outdoor parties and we have previously held a number of small wedding receptions at the villa that have been a great success. Whether you would like to have a little get together with old friends you have in Jamaica or use the gardens for a reception we will be happy to help out.

There will be a small but very reasonable charge to use the villa and gardens as a venue when guests wish to invite other friends and family into the grounds for such an event.

We are also happy to organize weddings at the beautiful setting of Dermott's beach which is only a mile from the villa. Please ask Neil for further details.

Maid Service with Loraine

There is a maid service, which is included in the price of your holiday with Lorraine coming in twice a week to clean throughout the villa and change bedding. Fresh towels are provided twice a week but please bring your own beach towels.

For those guests who want to get away from it all Loraine is also available to do your washing and ironing. For a very reasonable price she will wash and iron your clothes to a high standard. Guests are invited to make a private arrangement directly with Loraine.

If guests would prefer to do their own washing they can do so when either Nigel or Loraine are on hand to show them how to use the facilities. There is also a wash tub at the rear and an iron and ironing board are provided in both the villa and the apartment.

The North Jamaica Coast region

Tours and the local beaches.

If you are interested in booking a tour please speak to Pete. Our mini bus is available for charter work locally or to any part of the island. Let us show you the sights of Jamaica. We know all the beauty spots, near and far.

There are several wonderful beaches within a few miles of the villa, Reggae Beach, Golden Sands, Shaw Park Beach, James Bond Beach and Laughing Waters. Bob Marley's birthplace at Nine Mile and playwright Noel Coward's house Firefly with its spectacular view over Port Maria are worth a visit. Right on your very doorstep is White River where there is a choice of kayaking, tubing or rafting down a three mile stretch of the river from the 17th century landmark Spanish Bridge.

Please ask Pete for a quote for one of our great value tours to see places like Blue Mountain, Negril, Black River, Treasure Beach, Somerset Falls, Port Antonio or anywhere else you would like to visit.

Ocho Rios

In and around Ocho Rios

Ocho Rios has grown from being a small fishing village into a splendid major tourist resort with an impressive array of hotels, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The local shops offer everything from arts and crafts to T-shirts and other souvenirs. The market is well worth a visit with its huge selection of exotic fruits, fresh produce and fish.

Dunns River Falls and Jamaica's newest tourist attraction Mystic Mountain with its Rain Forest Bobsled and Sky Transporter are both located in Ocho Rios and a must to see.

Other nearby tourist attractions include Prospect Plantation and Chukka Cove famous for horse riding, Dolphin Cove where you can swim with the dolphins and the tourist centre of Island Village which contains several restaurants and bars, including Margaretaville and an air conditioned cinema.
