Holiday Rental House
The cosy newly built cottage in the traditional Jamaican style is located on a vast property with stunning sea views and tropical garden, just above a rocky cliff. From your front porch or lying in the hammock you will enjoy the beautiful view of the sea, or discover exotic birds and butterflies in the lush vegetation. In the evenings you can watch the light of fireflies. On the beautiful tree-filled property you can have a wonderful walk around the naturally canopied pathways or you can read and relax on our spacious brand new patio deck just a few feet above the ocean. From here you can enjoy stunning sunrises and sunsets during the summer as well as from our new attraction - the colorful designed Cave. If you want to, you can fish directly on the property or get refreshed by jumping...The cosy newly built cottage in the traditional Jamaican style is located on a vast property with stunning sea views and tropical garden, just above a rocky cliff.

The cottage and its furniture were built by local carpenters. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for self-catering and if you want you can enjoy the marvellous Jamaican breakfast the owner offers. Close to the property you will find various little shops and typical area restaurants. The cottage is prefer for two persons (please look for “rate”). More

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is located on the popular northern coast in Oracabessa, an authentic little village with a traditional fishing port. In walking distance (10 to 20 minutes) there is a small fishermen´s beach and the beautiful sandy James Bond Beach. You can also expore the island and make individual trips - we will be glad to give you advice and offer you some interesting excursions off the beaten track. Numerous touristic activities (like botanical gardens, museums, Fern Gully or the famous Dunn´s River Waterfall) are available in the lively harbour town of Ocho Rios - 20 minutes drive away.
