About this listing
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. Our helper, Miss Mavis, is available to bring you fresh linens, advice & a big Jamaican welcome.
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!
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!
I love the international nature of our property. Owners are from many different corners of the world. They are friendly, relaxed, and all are concerned with caring for our little slice of heaven.
There are always 'route' taxis at the top of the drive or you can hire Mr. Nelson who drives for Juta Tours. He can take you anywhere on the island in a private van. He's a wealth of knowledge and a quintessential gentleman.
Other things to note
We can offer an FAQ page or anyone who books with us to get you off and running when you arrive.
The property is quiet, guarded 24/7 and security guards take their job seriously. The smoking of Ganja on the property is not condoned and they will come to the door if they suspect that folks are smoking in the condo. Please respect these house rules.
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.
