Carleva Bay sits on a quiet beach frequented only by local fishermen. Enjoy snorkeling, wading, aerobics, yoga and watching the sunset. Close to nature and cultural sites. Ambiance, outdoor space, and locals are phenomenal. Great for couples, families, corporate retreats and groups.

The basic price is for 1-2 people and increases for each additional person.

Nonresidents must apply for a travel authorization. See additional requirements for visitors from the US and other countries.

The space
A Jamaican-styled villa sitting on your own piece of Caribbean paradise! The life of the house is surely our beautiful open-air courtyard. All of our bedrooms open onto the courtyard, each bedroom can hold several beds to accommodate groups and comes equipped with full washroom facilities. The large front yard and beach front are fenced-in living spaces. Come read on our swing under our mango and almond trees, and doze off to the sound of the ocean.

Guest access
You have access to the whole villa. The price is based on the number of people staying in the villa. The basic price is for no more than two people, who can each have their own room if so desired. Please let us know. There is an additional per-person, per-day charge beyond two people.
Cooking staff is available to hire upon request, and cater to various dietary needs.

Other things to note
We don't have any pets. However, the next-door neighbor has dogs that sometimes bark! We also occasionally see one or two local cats on the property. Given that the house is very open, take precautions to ensure they don't get into the kitchen at night: make sure you close the kitchen door firmly (you can also put a high stool on each side so the door can't be pushed open).
Please don't keep any food or candies in your room and bags, as ants find them very attractive!
Lizards are also part of the local fauna. We fill in all possible entry points (mainly on the roof) to prevent access to the bedrooms and kitchen, but you might see the occasional one on the walls. They are harmless and will disappear quickly, as they are quite afraid of humans!
Do read the house rules and other details in the entry room -- lots of useful information there!

Location

Yallahs, Saint Thomas Parish, Jamaica

We are on the beach, away from noise and bustle, but just a short walk to the main road and Yallahs square, where you can do some shopping, get real jerk food, and get to know the locals.

My husband Nelson and I are both retired and spend our time between Philadelphia, Jamaica, and (less often) Italy. I am Italian and Nelson is Jamaican. We bought this villa in 2003 as a center for our NGO, Edu-Tourism. We host some student groups who do volunteer work with local organizations (they tell us it's life-changing!) and love to help them explore the area and get to know its culture and its African roots. We know everything about Yallahs, St. Thomas, Portland (the next Parish), Kingston, and beyond and are happy to share it with you. We have at our (and your) disposal everything needed (transportation, staff, people to meet, sites to visit, musical/cultural groups) to help you have a wonderful experience and a memorable stay--whether you want to just relax, reconnect with family and local friends, become edu-tourists, or whatever. If you would like to include some volunteer work as part of your visit, we can make it happen: just tell us about yourself and give us some advance notice. The villa also has a small library, in case you want to read about local culture and history (as we do) or just some good novels.
