Big Grape boasts large upper and lower decks with views of the Caribbean through the bamboo and palms. It has direct access to a sunning and swimming area shared with only one other cottage on the property, giving Big Grape unique privacy and seclusion.
Big Grape boasts a comfortable and stylish living room and fully equipped kitchen. Downstairs are two double bedrooms, and upstairs is a unique lofted master suite crafted with Jamaican cedar. The spacious upstairs living area leads to a large sun/moon deck, ideal for sunning or reading a good book in the treetops.
While keeping its quintessential island charm, Big Grape has been upgraded with such amenities as Wi-Fi and an i-Pod ready stereo system. With regard to service, Big Grape Villa offers daily maid service, morning coffee and toast service, and the option of having additional meals prepared and served by our wonderful onsite cook, Juicy.

My boyfriend and I stayed in Sea Grape for a week and it was easily the best vacation we've ever taken. The villas are private, comfortable, and so close to the water. We went snorkeling (by flagging down Famous Vincent from the spot that we spent our afternoons swimming, lounging, and exploring the crystal clear water all around us.) The staff is so accommodating and friendly, but completely give you your space. They're there when you need them (like to ask for snorkeling gear, order food from Juicy, or ask about getting a cab) but completely give you your privacy when you don't.
AC in the bedroom was great for at night, we exclusively used the outdoor shower (why would you ever choose and indoor one when you can rinse off in the sunlight surrounded by beautiful trees and flowers??), and the mosquitos were completely manageable with bug spray.
We went on a couple day trips, one down to the "7 mile beach" which was fun for a day, but we found ourselves missing the natural and private cliffside by our villa. We also went to the Blue Hole Mineral Spring which was about 30 minutes away via taxi through the farm lands. The spring is 30 feet down and at the bottom you can covered yourself in exfoliating limestone. The staff there was also really friendly and helpful, and we had read online that they would take you to a near by ganja field if you asked-- they did! We tipped them after, both for the tour and also for their general hospitality. Definitely recommend the mineral spring for a day trip.
For food, we would walk in either direction from the villa and find multiple options. Since we were there in the off-season, we often found ourselves talking and hanging out with the restaurant owners after our meals. Was such a cool experience to hear from and get to know the awesome business owners of the neighborhood.
We cannot WAIT to go back to Sea Grape Villas.
We had an amazing time at The Big Grape! Juicy, Christine and Bentley were the perfect hosts during our stay. We are a family of four and it was the first time we brought our daughters to Jamaica and they absolutely loved it! The privacy of the villa and the accessibility to the shops and surrounding resorts and restaurants on the West End also the beach being a short taxi ride away make the Sea Grape Villas a perfect vacation spot! We are already booked for next year and plan on making this our annual family vacation.
Sea Grape exceeded my expectations. The cliffs were the right choice for us to stay and Sea Grape offered luxury, privacy, authenticity, hospitality - everything you could want in a villa. Thank you to everyone who made our trip so amazing.
I stayed here last summer with friends and a wonderfully relaxed time in Big Grape. I loved that the house is surrounded by the garden yet only steps from the water. My favorite part was waking up and walking out onto the patio sitting down at the table and minutes later Juicy magically appears with a fresh pot of fabulous coffee and fresh fruit, even mangos grown on the property. We also tried his johnny cakes which were awesome as were the dinners he prepared for us. We thought we would miss being on the beach but not one bit - the cliffs was beautiful and so easy to get in and out of the water. We went to the beach a couple times but actually preferred swimming in the cliffs. Loved just relaxing under the umbrella near the water watching the sunset and drinking Juicy's rum punch. What a life! And it was such a treat to have Christine come in every day and clean up--even doing our dishes and laundry. The flowers, the food, the ocean - this place is paradise. Thank you Sea Grape for a wonderful time - and thanks to Bentley too!
My husband, daughter, and I just got back from a fabulous stay at Sea Grape last month and we are already planning our return trip. Sea Grape is one of the most beautiful it's in the world- somewhere between heaven and earth. The views are stunning and the views are yours to enjoy- all by yourself! Make sure that you make watching the sunset a priority. We have stayed at Sea Grape before and have always been impressed by the warmth of the staff and Juicy's cooking- his jerk chicken is worth the trip! If you have the will power to skip his cooking for a night our family always enjoys a meal at the Rock House. Enjoy your trip!
Nicely tucked away in the trees, but still a stone's throw from a dip in the Caribbean. Everything I needed and nothing I didn't need. Quiet, simple, 70's charm, but well maintained with fresh paint on my last visit. If you want an all inclusive, go somewhere else. If you want casual relaxation, a seasoned local staff, and the feeling of staying at a friend's beach house, this is for you.
The staff will take care of your every request and get you anything you can't find yourself. Juicy is a fantastic cook -- make sure you have his brown stew and definitely his fish dishes... and curries... and anything else he makes. Great local ingredients. Christine keeps the place nice and clean and Bentley keeps the place safe and the grounds in order. All have been there for decades and feel like family.
Blackie the dog will quietly look after you, bark at boats that get too close, and lead you around at night. She's the sweetest little dog! Miss her too!
I rarely found reason to leave the grounds and I can't wait to get back there!
