Guestbook comments from the owner
Absolutely beautiful property, situated in a very peaceful surrounding. With fantastic views of the mountains, hillsides and ocean with the added bonus of local residents near by who are extremely hospitable. Excellent value for money and a wonderful house keeper called Claudett who is near by to help you with all inquiries. A fantastic retreat!

Currently living in Florida USA. I was born in Jamaica and vacation there a few times each year with my family. We purchased this property a little over two years ago and intend to retire there some day. I worked for 5 years as the Director of Human Resources at Air Jamaica Vacations.

We hope that you will enjoy our home as much as we do.

Wayne Bishop purchased this villa in 2008

The Villa is located on about 3 acres with 6 other homes (just the right density). A short walk of under under five minutes down the street is our private community beach.The villas location is very tropical with well maintained gardens and some sea views. Located only 15 minutes from Ocho Rios it is close to town, directly on the new highway and close to several beaches. Great location without the congested town traffic but easy access to several great locations on the island.

Easy access to James Bond Beach, Ocho Rios, Reggae Beach, Dunns River falls by private or public transportation.

This property is a midpoint between Ocho Rios and Port Maria. Two minute walk to private community beach.

It also has great access to the Capital Kingston and the South Coast. Ideal for a day trip to Portland and it's great beaches. Very centrally located with easy access to public transportation. Beaches Boscobel a Family hotel is only 5 minutes away. It has a water park and you may purchase day passes. The best way to see Jamaica and get around if you have a family is by rental car.

This house came very well-equipped and everything worked. The owner was quick to respond to any questions and was helpful. However, I do think a car is necessary rather than advisable as everything is too far to walk, particularly as the nearby road doesn't have proper pavements and is busy . I hadn't expected there would be so much traffic, which did rather spoil the peace and quiet. We tuned out the noise after a while, so it wasn't really a problem, but we certainly couldn't hear the sea from the house. In fact, the sea view wasn't as good as anticipated, The balcony, which was outside the door to the property, was quite small with no room for a proper table and chairs to sit out and eat a meal as we like to do on holiday. It would have been been a squash to get just four chairs out there without blocking the access but, luckily for us we only needed two.. Due to a couple of other houses in the way the view from the balcony is mainly of the garden rather than the sea itself. Admittedly,you could get a better view of the sea from inside the house, but not while you were on the balcony which was disappointing. Overall though, we enjoyed our stay even if it wasn't as quite as much of a beach house as we were expecting. .

Owner's Response: Hi Gail,
Thanks for your feedback. I certainly do not advertise or have pictures that indicate the property is a beach house or beach front property, and when asked i also indicate that you must walk to the beach.
I must say that you can hear the ocean from the property in the early morning and at night. You certainly can’t hear the sea at noon during the day. When you say drive to everything I do think you may prefer a car if you want to go to most of the major attractions in Ocho Rios but the beach and small shops in Oracabessa are in walking distance; not everyone wants to walk. However if you are not at an all-inclusive hotel and do not have a budget for a rental car you can certainly get a local taxi at the entrance to the property. In speaking to you when we were visiting you seemed to be enjoying your trip, describing walking down to the beach and driving up to the coffee plantation in the Blue Mountains. Yes, there is a partial view of the sea from the front patio, and guests often take the chairs down to the very large garden under the trees as well. Happy that you seemed to have a good time, even if for you the glass was half full.

The location was a lot more beautiful than expected, and I loved the proximity to the beachs, and the seaviews are just fantastic. The place is well kept and and maintained with great facilities, such as internet. The owners are quick to respond if you have any questions, and this makes one feel special. Nearby you have the Moxon's restaurant and bar, the Ian Flemming airport and the James Bond Beach, and I just love the little convenience stores. Overall, great ambiance. The well known Dunn's River Falls is less than half an hour away, and in Port Maria you have the famous church where Errol Flynn was married, only twenty minutes down the road. An excellent holiday retreat.

A comfortable, convenient cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had a very nice 7 day stay at the cottage. The house was comfortably equipped with everything we needed. A big plus was the wireless connection!
There were markets available and jerk stands within easy driving distance (our favorites were Buccaneers past Port Maria, Tower Isle Jerk, and the Ocho Rios Jerk Center). Plenty of beaches too (James Bond Beach and Calabash Beach are just down the street.

My time in Boscabel

  • 4 of 5
If you are looking for a really lovely location to stay then book NOW, My Wife and I spent 4 weeks here and many of those days were just sitting on the veranda watch the clouds, sea, humming birds & butterfly's. Go to the beech and find " Mal " during August and he may just show you the baby turtles hatching and running to the sea. Convenient for Ocho rios ( 25 min drive ) & on the main north coast road & you have a winner, All mod cons and parking space, you would be a fool not to take this little gem.

Enjoyable stay in Jamaica

  • 5 of 5
Recently stayed here with three friends. Had a wonderful time! Although there were some areas in Jamaica that felt unsafe, we felt totally secure here and in the surrounding areas. We had all that we needed in the house and it was plenty comfortable. The showers were a little on the cramped side but functional, I would still consider this home to be an excellent value for the money. No AC in most areas wasnt a problem at all, it was nice to open the windows and enjoy the breeze at night! Fans helped too. Found the listing here to accurately reflect the property. The owner was very prompt in answering any questions and was happy to give recommendations on places to eat, beaches and other activities. If you have space it would be helpful to bring a few things like dish soap, laundry detergent and trash bags so you dont have to buy it there.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive review. We do hope that visitors to our vacation home find it just as we describe. Garbage bags are provided; one of the bottom kitchen drawers. Brands of laundry detergent are a matter of choice so we do not provide it. I guess this is similar to hotels providing bath soap but not toothpaste.

Best,

Wayne

The property is in a tropical setting across the street from the sea. Keys are provided for access to the local community beach a 2 minute walk down the street. Small shops are located in Oracabessa a short walk away. The large tourist town of Ocho Rios is 15 minutes away. The property is on an impressive green oasis of trees, grass lawn with several homes nearby so there is no feeling of isolation. A great family property, with romantic tropical palms and a quiet garden retreat.
