This is a very well designed home, well ventilated, cozy, comfortable indoor spaces as well as a huge porch for playing dominoes and sipping an ice cold Red Stripe. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms are all nicely sized with their own bathrooms and really comfy new beds. It's everything it is advertised as and much more.
The staff, Monica and Trudy, and owners Paolo and Tia, is what keeps us coming back to Treasure Beach. Their warmth and friendliness is what you will find everywhere you go. Their delicious meals are prepared twice a day and customized to your taste. Lobster, curried shrimp, jerk chicken and ackee for breakfast. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! Monica and Trudy were even thoughtful enough to serve us a romantic candlelight dinner the night before our friends arrived. Thanks girls!
This home is very affordable, especially if you bring some friends. Paolo lives next door and can answer any questions you might have about the area. He greeted us with a nice gift of homemade soap and even brought over a freshly baked loaf of bread. Some days we were even treated to fresh coconuts.
We couldn't recommend Villa Optima enough and we will be back, it sits in front of the best swimming cove in the area and close to everything, which (this is why we like Treasure Beach) is not touristy. If you are looking for a truly laid back vacation, this is it. It's easier than you think, they'll pick you up at the airport and spoil you for as many days as you can get away, take a couple extra days, you won't be sorry. Soon Back
