We are a small gated Jamaican community on the ocean with a gentle beach, a beautiful reef a 3 minute swim away, & a 15 minute walk to central Ocho Rios. The name of the place is Carib. (You'll need that name at customs.) Our helper, Miss Mavis, is available to bring you fresh linens, advice & a big Jamaican welcome.

The space

The view is amazing. We are at the end of the property so the patio is quite private with a view of the reef and the Caribean beyond. The condo has an open floor plan with newly renovated kitchen, dining area and open living room. The bathroom, also recently renovated has an over sized shower. The king sized bed has high count linens and is air conditioned - so comfortable after a long day on the beach!

Guest access

You have close access to the beach, snorkeling, beautifully kept gardens and grounds, and a lot of friendly faces. Massages, boating, fishing and other activities are available from folks at the beach. Check with Mr. Nelson, the guest book, or Mavis for suggestions.

Interaction with guests

I live State side but Miss Mavis and her husband Mr. Nelson take special care of the place, treating it like their own. They treat our guests like family and are helpful in so many ways. They are gems!

Susannah's place is exactly as advertised - the location is central and the quaint beach is hardly 100yds from your door. The view from the balcony is closer to the Caribbean than the picture shows. Also, you have a walk-out gate from the balcony onto a very nice area for pictures or a picnic. Mr. Nelson and Mavis are great caretakers and even showed me around to a couple of nice places for dinner. They are very keen to help but we're also ok when I let them know I was just going to wing-it on my own. If you are a first-timer to Jamaica like I was, definitely get some tips from Susannah.

The place is beautiful, so close to everything, and has an amazing view! My wife and I were there celebrating our wedding anniversary and it was just we we wanted! Nelson and mavis gave us a huge Jamaican welcome and made us feel right at home! She even made us a home cooked meal! Thanks again for everything!

Susannah's place was great. It was beyond our expectations. It is very clean, comfortable, and the view is amazing. The newly remodeled kitchen and bathroom are very nice. If you are not familiar with Ocho Rios or its your first time visiting Mr. Nelson and Mavis are so helpful. Mr. Nelson took us to the grocery store, Dunn's River Falls, and the Knutsford bus station. Also, there is 24 hour security. The Beach bar has very good food and the people were very polite. We had a great stay.

My very first official vacay and i received exactly what i needed... tranquil, peaceful, clean, perfect, priceless view. Perfect seclusion to rest, wake up to the sound of waves and a clear, close-up view to the bottom of the ocean. The apartment is also centrally located a mere 5 mins away from the heart of the town for easy access to restaurants and a very active nightlife. The grounds are well kept and 24 hr security is provided. The apartment is just as advertised and will definitely see me for a return vacay.. Highly recommended!!!!!!

I am a full time landscape designer working in the SouthCoast ( southeastern Mass.) area. My condo in Jamaica has been in the family for 30 years. I've just finished extensive renovations to bring it into this century - great wifi, new kitchen and bathroom, and a glorious king sized bed with high count sheets. I love the laid back local vibe that we have at Carib. It's a gated community, Jamaican style. We have owners from all over the world, beautiful grounds, and a quiet beach just a short swim to the reef.
