BEST BEACH IN TREASURE BEACH

Treasure Beach Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom Beach Front Guest House With Separate Cottage

A 'roots luxe' beach front guest house in Treasure Beach on the South Coast of Jamaica.

This section of the South Coast is one of the special hide-away spots of Jamaica.

Treasure Beach has no 'all inclusives', & Calabash House is surrounded by Jakes , long considered to be 'the hippest resort in the Caribbean'.

We offer a laid back, small town atmosphere, perfect for family vacations, or small workshops, as well as couples, friends or the individual traveler.

Our gracious staff will make sure you feel at home.

Jamaican food has always been considered the best in the Caribbean, & our cook Suzett will be sure you know why.

Breakfast on the back veranda overlooking the sea, with fresh squeezed orange juice & delicious local fruits, some grown in our own yard, is only the start of your perfect day.

TB has a wide variety of local attractions, all within walking distance, including live music by Joe Issacs of the original Heptones playing various nights of the week at one of the local bars, South Jammin, as well as other musicians, visiting or local, at various small venues. Bring your guitar if you play, you never know when you might find an open mike.

A completely safe atmosphere for grown-ups & teens to wander, day or night, there are short walks, longer treks, small cafes, wide spread internet access, ice cream breaks, everything you would want to see, at several local beaches, the best of which is right out your back door at Calabash House.

If you want to take to the water there are wonderful boat excursions with local fisherman.

You are only a 20 minute boat ride to the world famous & completely original Pelican Bar, built by Floyd in the middle of the Caribbean Sea.

Just another few miles on the fishing boat will take you into Black River, the largest morass in the Caribbean, full of crocodiles, birds, fish, beautiful trees & plants, including endangered mangroves.

The other direction will take you to the fabulous 'Little Ochie' a seafood restaurant where you pick your seafood, have it weighed, decide how you want it cooked & then hang out in beached fishing boats with a thatch roof chilling out with a red stripe until your cook brings you the delicious fare.

Afterward you can go look for the manatee at Alligator pond, one of the many interesting sites in the area.

Just north of Black River is the beautiful YS Falls, with the longest zip line in Jamaica, for the bold, & a relaxing swim in any one of several pools of this magnificent, many tiered fall.

Once again, a myriad of flowers, plants & birds as well as huge trees in this lovely, well cared for attraction.

Treasure Beach & Calabash House offer you the unique opportunity to enjoy the Jamaican people, one of the friendliest & most accessible populations in the English speaking Caribbean.

The owner/artist, Elizabeth, has decorated the walls with original mosaics & some of the many participants in art workshops at Calabash House have graced the walls with their paintings.

No shortage of provocative art or reading materials, we stock the bookshelves with works from emminant Caribbean authors every year at the Calabash Literary Festival, considered by insiders to be the festival you most want to be invited to, as well as the standard detective thrillers, in case your idea of the perfect vacation means never getting out of the hammock [beachfront, of course].

You can check out the on site Mermaid Art Gallery for that special unusual treasure to take home to the ones who didn't get to go, or to remind you of the fun you had at Calabash House when you are back shoveling snow, or trying to force that frozen door lock.

As they say in Jamaica.... soon come.

This is the absolute best place in Jamaica!

The calabash house is an incredible place to stay. It is warm, bright, vibrant and inviting with its unique character of creative artwork and one of a kind aesthetic. It is an inspiring place filled with charm. It is a place to relax, connect with loved ones, make art, hold retreats, just be oneself. This place is enlivening and rejuvenating for one's spirit. The beach is perfect. The B&B owner and her staff are so delightful and pleasure full to be around. They are gentle folks, with huge hearts and very fun personalities. The food that is prepared by the staff is nourishing and completely delicious. This truly is the best place in Jamaica. When I am there, I never want to leave. And when I muster up the energy to actually leave the premise for an afternoon, I can't wait to get "home" again. Calabash House is a true treasure and blessing on our planet.

An amazing weekend all in all

I have been meaning to write since our stay in Treasure Beach – we had such a great time. your cottage is perfect and we all SO enjoyed staying there.... I am so glad I found you and Calabash House – we shall be back!! I have recommended the house to everyone, and we had a fair few visitors that weekend with everyone being at the Triathlon and then Boxing in the evening, so I hope some rentals some your way. We went out to Floyds the next morning to show a few who hadn’t been – a rather re-built bar since I went last 12 years ago – but as brilliant as always – expensive beer and cooking hot!
An amazing weekend all in all and thanks so much

Would I go back? Yes!!

Must I tell the truth??? What a wonderful vacation experience we had at the Calabash House!!! Each breakfast and dinner we had no left overs!!! We gave the staff our group of 8-9 likes and the staff prepared wonderful meals for our group. The best Jamaica Breakfast!We asked for seafood and yes we got wonderful Lobster one night and another night King Fish!!! Oh, the first day our flight was delayed and when we finally arrived at the Calabash House a fried chicken dinner was ready for us and yes no leftovers!!
At first when someone remarked "No TV" we all thought what will we be doing this week. Well it was great just sitting around playing card games, taking walks and just spending time with family!! The nights went by too fast for us.
To take a break out of the sun(which I must do) the grounds have hammocks so you can take a nap or read. Michael takes great care of the grounds. The house was just what we wanted, big bedrooms and with 9 people we had plenty of space. Its just a peaceful retreat!!! Suzette ,Yonie and Michael are wonderful people and they have kind souls! Suzette over heard me say that I would love a fruit drink and the next day she had everything to make one for me. We did send money ahead of time for Suzette to buy food for several days and once there we gave her more money to purchase what was on our food and beer list. She gave us receipts for everything. Must say some of the younger members first said they wanted to sleep in late but after smelling the breakfast cooking the first morning they were up and never missed a meal!!
The beach was beautiful but one day with the wind up we had to watch out for the rough waves. It was so nice to enjoy the beach without having salespeople coming up to you like in Negril and MoBay!! We did find out that on New Year's Eve the area comes alive with people coming from all over Jamaica to celebrate at Jack Sprat.
If you ask if young children would like the beach I can not answer that question but we did have small children in the houses beside us. Our group ranged from 21-5? and everyone had a wonderful time and we hated to leave. We did make it out to the Pelican Bar and down the Black River but as my husband said "We did nothing and it felt great-walk out the back down and you see the beautiful beach and walk out the front door and you see the wonderful mountains"!
Would I go back? Yes!!
