A Host of Attractions

Chrisanns Beach Resort is two hours away from Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay. The resort is just steps away from some of Ocho Rios's finest attractions.

Across the street are Glenns Restaurant, Tower Jerk Center, Toscanini's Italian Restaurant, and Harmony Hall Gallery, an exquisite old mansion where you can view art by Jamaica's finest artists. Harmony Hall is also a Jamaican National Heritage site.

If you want to cook for yourself, there's a well stocked grocery store right across the street, and a weekly farmers' market just down the road with a wide variety of fresh Jamaican fruits and vegetables.

In Ocho Rios, you can shop for souvenirs, duty free jewelry and other goodies at the Island Village plaza. Relax at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville Restaurant and Lounge, right on the beach at Island Village.

You can visit museums such as the Reggae Museum in Island Village, and the world-famous Dunns River Falls and Park.

Ocho Rios has many restaurants: Italian, Chinese, international, Indian, and Jamaican. Every June, the town hosts a local jazz festival that brings together jazz musicians from across the island.

You'll find other attractions in Ocho Rios like Dolphin Cove, where you can swim with these friendly creatures, and Mystic Mountain for an awesome eco-tourism experience, complete with canopy bridges and bungee rides above a tropical rain forest.

Tour a working citrus plantation at the Prospect Plantation Tour, or go kayaking down the White River, or go mountain biking on trails nearby.

Ocho Rios is also one of the few resorts where you can visit authentic Jamaican towns, such as St. Ann's Bay, the birthplace of Marcus Garvey and Brown's Town, a major market town on the North Coast.

Just 45 minutes from Chrisanns is the birthplace of Bob Marley: Nine Miles, where you can visit his mausoleum and museum.

St. Ann's Bay is just beside New Seville, the site where Christopher Columbus first landed in Jamaica. Here you can visit a historical museum and ruins of early Spanish settlements dating back to the 15th century.

Chrisanns Beach Resort is just an hour's drive away from Firefly, the home of Sir Noel Coward. Firefly is now a museum, and another National Heritage site. Forty five minutes away is Golden Eye, the former home of Ian Fleming, where he wrote his James Bond novels.

If you feel adventurous, you can rent a car right across the street. Rent a car and drive to Portland and visit Navy Island, where Errol Flynn once lived. There' are tour brochures and car rental information in the reception area.

About Marian Stewart Titus

I was born and grew up in Jamaica, just 30 miles away from Chrisanns Beach Resort. My childhood memories are filled with visits to the beaches on Jamaica's north coast. I've been living in New York City since 1998, working in public relations in the non profit sector, and more recently, as a college instructor. I also make jewelry and quilts, and sell these at craft fairs around New York City. I visit Jamaica several times each year and spend part of my vacations at the beach while I'm there. My condo at no. 10 Chrisanns Beach Resort is now my creative retreat from the hustle and bustle of New York City. I plan to spend more time painting the breathtaking scenery around the north coast, using this beachfront condo as my base.

Marian Stewart Titus purchased this condo in 2009

Why Marian Stewart Titus chose Ocho Rios

This location is very convenient for many activities. Chrisanns Beach Resort is an ideal haven if you want to get away from the big resort hotels, and enjoy the calmer, more mellow side of Jamaica. I love the beach, and Chrisanns has its own private cove where you can swim in the sheltered area, or venture further out to the deeper sections of the sea. The countryside sorrounding Chrisanns Beach Resort has some of the most breathtakingly beautiful vegetation, beaches and rivers on Jamaica's north coast. Chrisanns Beach Resort is also near to many atttractions, and is an easy 45 minute ride from the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, along a newly built highway that has awesome views of the Caribbean sea.

What makes this condo unique

The sunsets from the beach are to die for. The breezes that you'll experience if you're on the beach or out in the gazebo overlooking the sea are calming and refreshing. When you're sitting on the balcony of no. 10, you can see the sea, and hear the waves all day and night. Having a housekeeper who can cook for you is a real benefit, as she can prepare Jamaican dishes if you wish. Glenn's Restaurant, just across the street, offers Jamaican and international dishes. There's a Glenn's menu at the front desk, so you can call them and ask them to deliver right to your condo. Your condo has access to a wide variety of cable channels, and you can also borrow a range of current DVDs from the resort manager's office, at no charge, and watch these on a DVD in the condo. It's like having Netflix without the fees. If you can't do without the Internet, no worries, as the complex has both wireless and high speed plug in Web access.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Marian:

We just wanted to take the time to Thank You for our stay at Chrissan's last week. Your home was very comfortable with nice decor and a lot of unexpected detail. The location is very nice. We enjoyed the pool and the quiet beach alcove.

The staff was very attentive. Charmaine, Cathy and Chase were charming. The detailed email you sent us was very helpful in contacting resources as we needed them. I really wished we could have stayed longer.

I must say that we were very, very satisfied with the cell phone rental. That is such a nice touch, and it was valuable in helping us contacting the people we needed to while we were there, and also keeping in touch with family in the U.S.

All in all, we had an enjoyable stay, and we thank you for all your care.

It seems you spend much time in NY; however, if you ever happen to travel to the Raleigh, North Carolina area, please do look us up. It would be a pleasure to meet you in person. Or perhaps we will get a chance to meet in JA the next time. This was a quick and very busy visit -- Next time we hope to have more time.

Nice getaway

  • 4 of 5
My visit was wonderful. We really had a nice and relaxing stay. The resort was safe and clean, the staff was friendly and cooperative (the housekeeper Charmaine was always reliable and helpful), and provided attractive and stress-free accommodations. The private beach can only be described as a small piece of paradise. Also, the owner was very helpful in providing information about transportation, etc. I will be back.

Awesome stay!

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Chrisanns Beach Resort for our honey moon. We lodged in room 10 and we have to say, it was a really nice room!!! It was not the biggest room but the arrangement made it very spacious. It was very cute and felt like a home away from home with practically everything we needed being in place. Everything from a fully equipped kitchen to board games, beach towels, cable tv, a mini balcony, hot water, air conditioning and even diving goggles. The staff was courteous and housekeeping did a good job of making sure things were in order and over all the entire experience was good value for our money.

Wonderful relaxation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in apartment 10 for three weeks. It was so peaceful and relaxing that we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. The staff at Chrisanns were all so delightful! Kathy and Charmaine did a beautiful job of keeping our apartment clean and tidy. Jennifer was always a pleasure to meet and talk to during our stay. Chase and Trevor were very interesting and fun to be around. Marianne always treated us with the utmost care and concern. She dealt with any issues that came up promptly and always responded to our queries. The apartment now has a new fridge and a new toaster. Thank you Marianne for all your patience when our deposit check got lost in the mail. The pictures reflect the apartment amenities. For those of you who may rely on Wi-Fi, we were best able to connect with our small laptop, then a blackberry playbook and the iPad mini provided the least reliable connections. While staying there, others with the regular iPad were able to connect from a further distance away from the lobby.

Perfect compromise between hustle of Ocho and secluded cottages far away from good stuff.

  • 5 of 5
We chose this condo for a week's holiday in Jamaica. Although we considered a few places in Ocho Rios (and elsewhere on the North coast), most seemed to promise to be too noisy. Other possible rentals were secluded, but not close to anything particularly interesting.

This condo is close enough to Ocho, Dunn's, etc., and also has restaurants and a grocery store as well as Reggae Beach within walking distance. The condo's pool and sheltered cove mini-beach may not match those of the big all-inclusives, but are adequate and user friendly.

The host Marian and the housekeepers are very helpful and available.

Condo has extras such as cable TV, WiFi, games, books, snorkel gear, kitchen utensils. It is beautifully decorated and very clean and neat.

You can manage without a rental car though, if you can adjust to left side driving, a car makes things easier.

My Experience at Chrisanns

  • 4 of 5
Our Experience at Chrisanns Beach Resort was overall very favorable! we chose Chrisanns because we wanted a quiet place to stay that was on the beach,clean and safe. We also wanted our own cooking facilities.
The unit was very comfortable and clean. the bed was wonderful!!! I slept like a baby!!!
The staff was very courteous and helpful of our needs. The only drawback was the lack of Wifi in the unit, we had to go to the lobby to get internet service, but I was told about this when I booked the Unit. I would definitely
go back!!!
