Overview

Treasure Beach Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Created as a testament to an enduring love affair, The Buccaneer artfully melds Moorish Spain, Morocco, Crete, South Africa, Taos - and Jamaica - into one romantic, serene, spectacular, fantasy, beach villa, designed by Sally Henzell.

The setting is dramatic: on the hillside, above the fishers' beach in quiet Billy's Bay with 3/4s of a mile of untrammeled beach also reachable by gated pathways. Sweeping staircases, inside and out. Inspiring views. And always, the sound of the waves... Gaze out to sea from the oceanfront pool, terraces, and deep shaded portico. Up on the roof a spacious 'sun and moon lounge' invites sunbathing, dining, sunset and stargazing, or just curling up with a good book.

Opening onto the Oceanside terrace: a huge living room with scrolling hand-wrought ironwork doors, deep color-saturated walls that are inlaid with glass, plus comfy, inviting oversize furniture designed specifically for the house. Full music - VCR - TV systems, Phone.

Four artful, air conditioned bedrooms and four tiled bathrooms.

The kitchen is fitted out with all modern conveniences.

Discover the simple pleasures of life in Treasure Beach, Jamaica. The Buccaneer Villa is perfect for travelers seeking a destination spot on Jamaica's unspoiled southern coast. The villa is built overlooking the beach at Billy's Bay and has private access directly onto the beach where you will find hammocks awaiting you in the shade of our sea grape trees, this is the cold weather escape that you've been dreaming about. Your relentlessly sunny get-away awaits you.

You can experience the best of both worlds in Treasure Beach... Breathtaking ocean and mountain views. Marvel at the 360-degree view overlooking sparkling, turquoise waters. Soothing ocean breezes will lull you to sleep in our hammock by the mangroves, unwind in the sanctuary of the Buccaneer Villa, decorated with an exotic Bohemian flair. Best of all, live-out cook, housekeeper, caretakers Suzie, Cebert, and Garfield provide a warm welcome with a knack for almost invisible pampering.

*** Testimonials ***

'Many thanks for our wonderful vacation at The Buccaneer. We loved every moment of it and the best part was your wonderful staff. Suzie was delightful and could not have taken better care of us and most important of all, our baby. Again, many thanks for helping make Treasure Beach our favorite vacation spot.' Sincerely,

Celia Boddington and Paul Bledsoe

'There are just no words to describe what a glorious, transforming trip this was for Parks and I. Our lives are forever changed. I cannot thank you enough for the best vacation we've ever had. We arrived as two stressed out, uptight complainers and turned into potential Jamaicans. To us, life in Jamaica is about beauty, tranquillity, happiness, love, patience, tolerance, health, living life, appreciation, and gratitude. Jamaica truly does capture your soul. P.S. We love Suzie, Garfield, Cebert and everyone!!!' Sincerely, Parks and Cathy Talley

'I do not have words that are worthy of delineating the priceless time we had at The Buccaneer. To be enveloped by the never-ending vistas of the glorious sea and the heavens, the soothing waters and sea breeze, sweet Suzie's scrumptious food (a labor of love) is to be blessed and healed. My favorite moments were those spent in solitary strolls on the deserted beach as well as my meditation and yoga at sunrise and sunset, on the roof. I have been fortunate to have traveled to some of the world's most spectacular places - but there was something so incredibly magical about our experience at The Buccaneer.' - May 2003 guests from New York City

Adam Clayton of U2 stayed here. So can you... 'It's like a house on a beach you've seen in a dream...'

'Treasure Beach is a gem for travelers in search of the off-beat. You won't find a more authentically charming and relaxing place in Jamaica.' - Lonely Planet

'The coolest place to stay on the planet.' -London Evening Standard-

Relaxation at its best

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely loved our stay at the Buccaneer Villa. Mary is wonderful and she made me feel so relaxed and at ease. We stayed with our 3 children, ages 8, 6 and almost 4 and they had a great time and so did we! The view from the Villa is spectacular. We spent a couple nights on the veranda upstairs star gazing. The property is great for exploring. We even saw a mongoose! The kids loved the pool and so did we for a quick dip in the afternoon as it was so refreshing. The beach is great for beach combing (we found many different interesting shells that we are proudly displaying on our mantle.) We rented a car for our trip and went on a few different day trips. One of our favorites was going on a boat out to Pelican Bar and on Black River. This was such a neat "once in a lifetime" experience, which Suzie arranged for us. We had a blast. Suzie recommended going to YS Falls one day and we are so glad we did as that was such a wonderful memorable day. I cannot say enough positive things about the Villa itself, but do have to mention that Suzie, Jamie, and Nikki are the real gems. We just adore them and hope to come back and visit again.

The most relaxing time for my family.. just fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
I am looking forward to returning; I cried when I had to leave. The staff is the most beautiful and kind people I have met and I have been to lots of different villas. The area is a safe and peaceful place; I have found one of my places that I can call home. The cook is excellent and the food fresh and delicious. I recommend it highly. Living inside and out at the same time has reminded me how important it is to my soul to connect with nature.
My children; 3, 6 & 9 had so much fun from the pool to the beach. They also enjoyed playing with the local children and the 6 & 9 year old had lots of freedom to roam with the other kids there in the village. I find that having my kids spend time in places so different from the US has opened their interest in different cultures, especially the older ones.

the best food in the world!

  • 5 of 5
I have NEVER eaten food the way Suzie makes it. The place is beautiful and I came during a low season. Even though we had rain and there were a few more mosquitos than usual, it was the BEST holiday ever! Mary was the easiest person to deal with and totally undersold the place. She needs to raise her prices!
I will be returning again and again. I am already planning my next visit working out details with Mary now.

Great Experiance

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for nine nights in the middle of October with out a car. We love Jamaica and have been to the island 20 plus times including getting married in Port Antonio 21 years ago. It was our anniversary trip. We LOVED IT. It is directly sea front on a small bluff over looking Billy's Bay. The views are amazing virtually from anywhere in the house but the fully covered porch facing the sea and running the length of the house is indeed special and includes lots of chairs and an eating area where we had most of our meals. Speaking of food Susie is a wonderful cook and can also arrange tours and outings for you. The pool is fairly large and has great ocean views. The upstairs master bedroom has a huge rooftop observation deck with fantastic views of the ocean and the mountains. It is wonderful for sunrises, sunsets and star gazing. The staff is truly a joy to deal with and will make you feel right at home. The areas is non-touristy and feels very comfortable and safe. You will be welcomed and treated like a friend. We have been all over the Island and stayed in some great places but my wife says it was the best time she has ever had and to prove that we have already rebooked the Buccaneer for two weeks in February. One love soon come.

very disappointed..

  • 1 of 5
The Staff was AMAZING!! These ladies are just so special to our hearts. Our family did not have such a great time though. we were eaten up by either mosquitos, ants or sand flies.. not sure..the home was fumigated because of the bites we had. Our 11 year old was head to toe covered in bites by the 2nd night, Our 3 year old received 21 bites overnight and that is with A/C, fans, bug net, spraying the bed with bug spray and her with bug spray... she was still eaten up! we had to watch our 3 year old like a hawk because of everything being open. She was not allowed to go to the upper level. There needs to be some safety things around the Buccaneer. We were told that we could walk around the town.. there is really no town to walk around. closest town is 1.5 hours away. The road from the airport was horrible!! 2.5 Hour drive!! There is nothing to do close by. Every night from the fish shack the smoke of pot would fill the Villa...
You need a car to travel anywhere.. there is nothing close by. The ONLY reason why I would even go back to Jamaica period would be for the ladies at the Villa.. they have become like family to us! Amazing wonderful women!
When I spoke with Mary about the bites.. all that was said is we could move (refund) to another Villa.. HOWEVER we had already bought our groceries.. and we would have to pay for more transportation!

Owner's Response: I have been doing this 15 years now and have never had a more difficult group. Eating in bed is not a good idea when in the tropics.
We have screened the windows and are doing all we can do to improve in every way possible.
The people before this group are coming back for two weeks in Feb and the people after this group are in the process of re-booking now.
I offered a full refund for them to go to another villa and they stayed anyway. Moving groceries from one house to another is not a problem at all. No matter what I offered, they did not take except when I paid for transportation to help them.
Please feel free to tell me any of your concerns and I can address them. Thank you, Mary
