Enjoy Rainbow Tree - as so many others have done, time and time again. Wash away your stress in ambiance conducive to quiet romance. Recharge yourself. Luxuriate in a tropical climate with cool sea breezes in the driest part of Jamaica.

Rainbow Tree is an award-winning, custom-designed, and custom-built villa. It is situated on the most beautiful property in Treasure Beach - five and a half very private acres directly on the Caribbean Sea. It provides a private haven for vacationers who seek an out-of-the-ordinary retreat from workday hassles. your accommodations are gracious, spacious, functional, and beautifully decorated.

There are nearly 7000 covered square feet to enjoy, both inside and on the covered verandah that encircles the home. Ceilings are 17-foot cathedrals, with overhead paddle fans throughout. There are two master bedroom suites with king-size beds plus three more bedrooms, each with two twin beds that can be made into kings. All bedrooms are air-conditioned, though the delightful breezes usually make their use unnecessary. Walk-in closets, four large bathrooms, and a powder room enhance your comfort. The expansive living room extends 30 feet along the sea side of the villa. The separate dining room seats up to ten. A breakfast bar complements the kitchen. Books abound in the greeting room/study.

Rainbow Tree has High-Speed Wireless Internet access, TV with a DVD , and a good sound system. There is wheelchair access to the entire villa. There is a beautiful cactus garden on the mountain side of the villa - a wonderful place to sit with your morning coffee and watch the hummingbirds.

Your staff of three full-time and two part-time professionals will do their utmost to make you comfortable and turn your vacation into an experience you’ll want to repeat again and again. However, your privacy is absolutely respected at all times.

You will awaken to fresh-squeezed orange juice and the aroma of just-roasted Jamaican mountain coffee. The staff will select the finest fruit, vegetables, fish and lobster; prepare three meals a day; clean; handle your laundry needs; maintain the grounds; and keep the sparking pool crystal clear. Loving nanny child service is available at a moment’s notice - at nominal cost.

You can virtually live on Rainbow Tree’s huge, covered verandah. And, you need only walk a few feet from the veranda to Rainbow Tree’s lovely pool, complete with thatched gazebos. A wide, sandy, reef-protected beach runs along the entire property line. The sea is a snorkeler’s dream and beckons to swimmers.

Comfortable airport transfers and private guided tours of a host of delightful area attractions are available.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Nirvana Vacation

My wife and I have stayed many times at Rainbow Tree and Rainbow Point Villas. If you are looking for the most relaxing sun filled vacation - look no further. The staff is incredible- within minutes of meeting the staff, you will feel like family. Both villa's facilities are spectacular. Incredible ocean and starry night moonlight views. We would recommend either villa for those who either want a romantic get-a-way, a family with children vacation or friends just hanging out for a week or so. You simply will not be disappointed at either Rainbow Tree or Rainbow Point. Its our home away from home. A 10-star vacation!

We are “island people,” having lived in the Caribbean—and having traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean and Pacific. We moved back to the US from St. Croix in 1980, realizing we needed a more stable environment in which to raise and educate our children. (Karen concentrated on technology and healthcare marketing, and Peter worked in sales and customer service.) We found Treasure Beach when we were searching for a sweet and unspoiled place in the Caribbean to visit—and first stayed there in 1985. We immediately fell in love with the people, returning as often as we could. We purchased 5-1/2 beachfront acres in 1988, designed Rainbow Tree, and had it carefully constructed from 1989-1991. (Because we lived in the Caribbean, we understood the special design and construction considerations.) Our staff has been with us since 1990. We have become an integral part of the community and regard Treasure Beach as our second home. Karen heads Treasure Beach Foundation, a nonprofit devoted to providing educational opportunities for the students of Treasure Beach.

Peter Kennedy purchased this villa in 1991

Treasure Beach is well outside the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas of Jamaica. The residents are decent and hardworking—and they call tourists “guests.” Treasure Beach has a casual, laid-back feel. When we had the opportunity to purchase 5-1/2 acres—what we thought was the finest land in the area—we jumped at the chance. We have had a relationship with our employees for 20+ years; they delight at making our guests feel as comfortable as possible—and are largely responsible for our exceptionally high rate of return guests and referrals.

Our land extends from the road to the beach. The villa itself is superbly designed and constructed. There are 17-foot cathedral ceilings throughout, keeping it airy and cool. All rooms and closets are oversized. The living room alone is 30 feet long and has several seating areas. All bedrooms have cross ventilation, and A/C is available in each; all mattresses are custom-made to hotel standards. The villa is full of original Jamaican art and photography. Large verandahs surround the house, providing numerous areas to relax. The 30 foot freshwater pool has a large deck, a gazebo, and two sun shelters. We recently added an outside kitchen in which the staff prepares amazing Jamaican meals including jerk chicken and pork. The sound system has speakers inside and outside; wi-fi is there if you care to keep in touch with the outside world. Our villas manager is available to take you on delightful day trips. Loving, responsible nanny service can easily be provided.

FANTASTIC - BEYOND EXPECTATIONS !!

  • 5 of 5
It's been 9 months since our amazing trip to Rainbow Tree Villa in Treasure Beach and I still think about it everyday! We traveled there from Canada with 3 other couples and we all felt like it was too good to be true. Our first time staying in a villa and I will never be able to do an all-inclusive again. We enjoyed every minute, from lounging around the private pool and strolling the gorgeous beach and relaxing on the veranda. The food was incredible, we devoured every meal. A huge thank-you to Ms Laura and Ms Jenni, they cook with love and truly made us feel welcome and pampered! We ate all our meals on the veranda with the incredible views of the fruit trees, ocean and gorgeous sunsets.

The villa is beautifully decorated, gorgeous photos and art everywhere you look. It really did feel like a home away from home. We did a few excursions to YS Falls, the Pelican Bar and Appleton's Rum Factory and had a great time. Aman was a wonderful guide and driver and showed us the side of Jamaica that most travelers never experience. Calvin keeps the property at Rainbow Tree immaculate, the gardens are beautiful and our beach bonfire was incredible!

I highly recommend this hidden paradise to everyone. It was an unforgettable vacation, Peter, the owner was a pleasure to work with to make this vacation a dream come true. We will most definitely be back, and this time with our kids !

Owner's Response: Children of our guests often make good friends with the local children and are spontaneously invited to participate in soccer and cricket games on the beach. A great lesson in international relations.

JAMAICA AT ITS BEST

  • 5 of 5
We have just spent Christmas at Rainbow Tree and feel lucky to have experienced such a wonderful holiday. We went as two families with children aged 6 - 13 years. The house was perfect, giving us all the space we needed to relax, and had an amazing veranda that served up the most incredible views (the owner wasn't wrong when he said you could pretty much live on the veranda - we did!). Waking up everyday to the most beautiful view of the sea and the beach was great for the soul. And ending each day with the most spectacular sunsets and a sky bursting with stars was incredible (the Skywalk app was in full use as we wanted to know what each star and constellation was!)

The perfect blend of pool, beach and excursions (courtesy of Aman) kept everyone entertained for two whole weeks. We had so many amazing experiences from jumping into crystal clear rivers from rope swings to eating some of the best jerk pork to having a bonfire on the beach. Visiting the Pelican Bar, YS Falls and driving through St Elizabeth took us to another world.

But what really made this holiday a holiday with a difference were the amazing people we had the fortune to meet, who treated us as their guests and who gave us a true taste of Jamaica - in particular we'd like to thank Aman, Miss Laura, Miss Jenny and Calvin and also Shane, Ritchie and OShayne and the fabulous children of Treasure Beach with their smiles and energy. Treasure Beach and Rainbow Tree offers an unspoilt view of the world and has definitely made us start 2014 with a 100% positive outlook on life - love and respect x

Owner's Response: We are experiencing more and more visitors from the UK and their usual two week stays allow for plenty of time to really get into the vibe of the South Coast of Jamaica and what it has to offer. You hit many of the good spots and it obviously made a great impression. Our staff loves to read comments such as this. We are so fortunate to have such a fine group working for us for all these years. They are truly our Jamaican family.
We hope to see you back.

MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
We are in our eighties and this was the first return for us for some thirty years and the first visit by our family Grandchildren and husbands. It was a a marvelous time and we are most grateful. Your staff could not have been more helpful, cheerful and efficient and really fine people. They helped so much to make the trip so memorable. We loved the Villa ,and they kept it spotlessly clean. Even at my age 87 I decided to go on a boat tour which was the highlight of my stay there. But what a marvelous time we had, being again soaked by the warm blue green Caribbean sea, just like years ago when we sailed our boat down in Jamaica. I could go on and on, but won’t. Suffice to say wish we could do it again.

A WEDDING IN PARADISE!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Rainbow Tree is a beautiful, rustic jewel in the small fishing village in Treasure Beach. The wrap around covered veranda is a wonderful place to spend a morning or evening, while the calm, sandy beach is a perfect place to spend the day. You could waste hours reading in the hammock under the tree or lounging by the pool. The whole house felt open and comfortable with a near constant sea breeze. The AC units chilled the bedrooms nicely for sleeping, though we were instead tempted to open all the windows to the sea breeze.. The house itself is gorgeous with good size bedrooms, bathrooms, and lots of nice big windows to enjoy stunning views. The staff was attentive and kind. Miss Laura and Miss Jenny are fantastic cooks - everything we ate was so fresh and wonderful!
If you like being surrounded by nature, then this is a perfect place for you. The owners were very helpful with everything from directions to recommendations of places to eat or tours to take, etc. This property is perfect for the type of people who want to be away from touristy hustle and bustle and who want to do their own thing.

We had our wedding at Rainbow Tree in December, and it was the most perfect wedding we could have ever imagined. It is a magical place to get married.. There were 7 of us staying at the villa for a week and it was the ideal combination of a vacation and wedding. The wedding service was quite formal and elegant, and it was in a beautiful tropical setting with gorgeous flowers and plants everywhere. To have our wedding in such a beautiful place was a dream come true. Karen and Peter as well as local staff done everything they could to make our day special. They looked after everything from the flowers to the music, and so we were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings right up to the wedding. At sunset, we had the wedding on the beach and it was a truly magical experience. If you are considering a destination wedding, we highly recommend Rainbow Tree. Staying here will be one of the best decisions you ever make. Truly a gem and we feel so lucky to have been there.

Owner's Response: Natalie, thank you for your kind words. It was an absolute delight working with you to make your dream wedding come true. Knowing how important this was to you (and your fiance and family), I understood you were taking a chance by planning your wedding at a destination to which you'd never been. Our staff was thrilled to partake in this special occasion, and I know they did all they could to make things as smooth as possible. I hope we have the pleasure of hosting you and Dmitry once again. All the best, Karen

THE ULTIMATE VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, our two young children and some friends just returned from an incredible week at Rainbow Tree. It is the first real vacation we've had in a long time, and everything about it was wonderful. The villa is spacious and tastefully appointed, and we felt very much at home during our stay. My favorite spot was the veranda, which had an amazing view of the Caribbean; it was the perfect place for relaxing on a chaise lounge, reading, sipping Red Stripes and mango daiquiris, and watching the sun come up and set each day.

The food was INCREDIBLE! We were treated to fresh-squeezed orange juice and fresh Jamaican coffee each morning, as well as large platters of tropical fruit along with a host of other items like omelets, Johnny cakes, French toast, and banana pancakes. Dinners were equally as plentiful and oh so yummy. The grilled lobster was to die for, and the stewed chicken in brown sauce is the best chicken we've ever had. Parents: It’s also worth noting, if we were having something on the spicy side, the staff made separate dishes that our kids could enjoy.

Yes, the staff. You won’t find a nicer, more loving group of people to look after you while you’re away. Miss Laura and Miss Jenny went out of their way to take care of our every need, and did so ever so graciously. When my husband got too much sun on his back one day, Miss Laura ran out to the front yard, got some aloe, and prepared a special concoction to help soothe his sunburn; it really helped! Both ladies are genuinely warm and cheerful, and we all really enjoyed talking to them. Aman, Laura's husband, is also a great conversationalist and fantastic tour guide. Have him take you to the Pelican Bar (a bar out in the middle of the ocean) on his boat; you won’t find anything like it anywhere else!

To those with young kids, even though Rainbow Tree is not child-proofed, I felt very safe having my children there. The property is also gated in the front, so I felt reassured knowing that my kids couldn’t run off the grounds (they are wanderers).

I can’t say enough good things about Rainbow Tree. The house, the views, the pool, the beach, the food, the staff, and the people of Treasure Beach are great—and I can’t wait to go back and do it all over again. Our children feel the same way. Ever since we got home they've been begging me to go back to Jamaica!

If you’re looking for a beautiful place to unwind, de-stress and have some fun—in an authentic, unspoiled setting—this is it.

IS THIS HEAVEN? YEA MON!!!

  • 5 of 5
I am writing this review actually sitting on Rainbow Tree's veranda right now, while enjoying the sunny skys and breathtaking oceanfront views. This is our 5th trip back to Rainbow Tree. If you want to spend a week(s) with family or friends, in the most glorious and enchanting place in the world, choose Treasure Beach and Rainbow Tree or Point. You absolutely will never be disappointed. The staff: Aman, Ms. Laura, Ms. Jenny and Calvin pride themselves on making each minute you are here calming, refreshing, warm and comfortable. You will come to learn what all guests have learned over these years - Rainbow Tree's staff is not staff but rather family. If you are interested in just chilling your days away with your loved ones and friends, there is no better place to come to. If you are the type who loves a Sandal's vacation, Treasure Beach, Rainbow Tree and Point are not for you and your family and friends. But, if you take the leap we did back in 1998, Treasure Beach and Rainbow Tree and Point will become an annual get-a-way, just as it has to us and many others. The owners of Rainbow Tree are wonderful and kind people. They don't miss a beat, from the time you speak directly with them before, during and after your trip. From the moment you land in Montego Bay to your return home, everyone involved makes sure you are stress-free and happy. You will relax your entire trip, enjoying the grounds, oceanfront views or you can take wonderful day trips with Aman. Ms.Laura and Ms. Jenny's cooking are second to none. Be sure to ask Calvin to build you his famous skyscraper bonfire on the beach. Don't miss visiting The Pelican Bar with Aman and Ritchie. Folks from Rainbow Tree are treated with love and respect by the owner, Floyd. The real treasure at Rainbow Tree and Point are Aman, Ms. Laura, Ms. Jenny and Calvin. I wish I had more time to write this review but the sun and beach are calling me. Bottom line - if you want to experience a truly magical, breathtaking vacation and interact with the real people of Treasure Beach, Jamaica, look no further and book what will be your best vacation ever at Rainbow Tree or Point in Treasure Beach, Jamaica.
