QUIET RURAL RETREAT ON SEA TURTLE NESTING BEACH

Treasure Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6-8

Large 3 bedroom home situated on a small bluff just above one of the best sea turtle nesting beaches in Treasure Beach with a small cottage close by. The area below the house has a great swimming beach with the possibility of walking along the coast in either direction. The main house has one large bedroom with two twin beds and another of the same size has a king sized bed and a small child’s bed. There is also a smaller room with a single bed. This house has 2 bathrooms and an outdoor shower. The small cottage which is about 50 feet from the main house has two porches, a king sized bed and its’ own bathroom and can be rented as an add on when we are not using the space as our turtle office during nesting season which is July-November. All rooms in the main house have ceiling fans and all the bedrooms also have a standing fan. Two bedrooms have screens and the others have mosquito nets over the beds. The house also has a nice living room, good sized kitchen, a large veranda on the sea side, a second story deck with a thatched roof and a roof deck for viewing Treasure Beach’s beautiful sunsets. The house is very comfortable and there is almost always a breeze blowing through.

We are conservationists and are trying to raise enough money by renting our home and providing turtle tours (NEPA approved) to be able to pay 2-3 local men to do nesting surveys on the hawksbill sea turtles that nest on our local beaches. If you are looking for a gated community or the latest in luxuries, this is probably not the place for you. We do not have hot water although if you are willing to wait until late afternoon when the sun has been shinning on the water tank for a few hours, you can often get a nice warm shower. We have also left most of the trees around the house in an effort to keep the local bird population in place and then we draw them in even closer by putting out bird baths and hummingbird feeders. The birds really put on quite a show and sometimes you can actually hold the bottle while the streamer tail hummingbirds feed, giving you a good close up view.

If you want see the real Jamaica, learn about her wildlife and see some of her wild places, this is the place for you.

About Sarah Thomas

I have been an annual visitor to Jamaica for 30 years. For the past 14 years, I have settled in the Treasure Beach area and find it to be a home away from home, both comfortable and safe. I spend the remainder of my year in Oregon and have long focused my life on various forms of conservation.

Sarah Thomas purchased this house in 2004

Why Sarah Thomas chose Treasure Beach

This area of Jamaica integrates a culture of farming and fishing with limited tourism in a safe and positive community that still has the opportunity to save a good part of its' wildlife and culture.

What makes this house unique

Allows visitors to experience a true and realistic Jamaican environment in a safe and Eco-conscious retreat on one of the few remaining Hawksbill Turtle nesting beaches in the area.

Treasure Beach is a nice rural area of farms and fishing beaches with a little tourism thrown in. There are some beautiful long undeveloped beaches here where the hawksbill sea turtles come to nest and areas of mangrove swamp where the endangered American crocodiles spend at least part of their year.

We can provide a tour that will consist of walking the nesting beaches and learning about habitat needs, predation issues and population survival . There is also the possibility of seeing an adult turtle come up on the beach during the night to nest or a group of hatchling hatch out and head to the sea.

We can also provide an educational boat tour to see the crocodiles that live in the Black River which is one of the biggest wetland areas on the island. This river is a short boat ride down the coast from the house and your captain will pick you up off the beach below the house. This is also a big birding area so bring your binoculars.

Since the local area is heavily involved in fishing, we have developed an educational tour about the local fishery. We will visit local fishing beaches, talk to the fishermen and learn about the varied techniques and equipment used and what the important fisheries issues are. This would be followed by a trip to the local fish sanctuary in search of solutions.
