YOUR PRIVATE POOL ALMOST TOUCHES THE SEA!
Rainbow Point is a colorful and well-decorated villa on one and three-quarter acres. It had been used primarily for weddings, as its panoramic Caribbean views are so captivating. We purchased it in 2003 and totally renovated it for use as a comfortable vacation villa.
There are three bedrooms, all with sea views and air-conditioning (though it is rarely needed). Rainbow Point has high ceilings, overhead paddle fans throughout, attractive furnishings and art, a good sound system, Internet access, and TV with a DVD player.
The huge, covered veranda is well-furnished with chaise lounges, a bar, and a table that seats six; it is a perfect place for eating meals and relaxing. There is also an additional dining deck on the mountain side of the villa. The pool has expansive decking surrounding mature coconut palms, plenty of top-quality chaise lounges, and overlooks the sea. This affords you an exquisite view of the South Coast, as well as the local fishermen bringing in their catch in the late afternoons.
Rainbow Point affords couples, families, and friends a way to vacation in casual comfort. When you rent the villa, it is all yours - even if you have only one or two people in your party. That means you have exclusive use of the villa and its accompanying freshwater, private pool. It also means that the full-time, salaried staff will be there to cook your meals, clean the villa, handle your laundry, keep the pool sparkling, maintain the grounds, and do their utmost to make your stay enjoyable. Loving nanny service is also available.
Meals are served family style. Rainbow Point has an excellent cook, adept at Jamaican cuisine. As the villa is in a fishing village, lobster and fish (grouper, snapper, and many more varieties) are most commonly served. There is also an abundance of delicious fruits and vegetables.
You will require no fancy clothes. And you will encounter no fancy prices. Only peace and quiet. And the welcoming smiles of the residents - lovely people who treat you as guests, not tourists.
Rainbow Point is truly an oasis in the midst of a peaceful get-away-from-it-all atmosphere. A place where you will not only relax, but be rejuvenated. A place where you will forget your worries and leave your heart. Our experienced driver can provide airport transfers, as well as private guided tours of area attractions.
Especially large parties (up to 14 people) can rent our other Treasure Beach villa just down the beach -- Rainbow Tree -- in concert with Rainbow Point. Our staff members are used to working together and can arrange for dinners or special meals to be served together for your entire group.

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 our first villa there—Rainbow Tree, and had it carefully constructed from 1989-1991. The staff for that villa has been with us since 1990, and we have known the staff for Rainbow Point nearly as long. 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.
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. We already had one villa in Treasure Beach and were presented with the opportunity to buy an existing villa on nearly 2 acres down the beach from it. Though we knew the property needed extensive work, it was structurally sound—and boasted incredible views. The renovation included making the ceilings higher; replacing the roof, doors, and windows; installing A/C; redoing the swimming pool; and adding an expansive deck (with two sun shelters) around it.
Rainbow Point is an incredibly colorful, comfortable home away from home. As it is on a point, it is continually cooled by the trade winds, though A/C is available in all the bedrooms. Each bedroom has a sea view. It has a huge covered verandah between the villa and the pool area; our guests have been known to relax for hours on it; they also often use it for dining so they don’t miss a moment of gazing at the gorgeous Caribbean. Rainbow Point is ideally located overlooking the local fishing beach—with a private walkway going down to the beach. The sound system has speakers inside and outside; wi-fi and cable TV are there if you care to keep in touch with the outside world. Our villas manager and caretaker are both available to take you on delightful day trips. Loving, responsible nanny service can easily be provided.
