Overview

About the property

5BR Sea front Villa with pool, seaside tennis court and the beach at your gate

Lovely Hikaru has undergone a very sensitive renovation, honoring the striking modern clean lines, while adding some new touches overseen by our very talented designer Sophie and her Building Team under the direction of Mr Luke. We now have 5 bathrooms featuring outdoor stone showers, a new kitchen house with polished concrete floors and counters, a much larger open living room with built in concrete couches, restored original vintage Quaker furnishings, ceilings opened to the metal roof lined with white tongue in groove board, African fabric covered furniture, new locally made Ratan lighting, high efficiency white 3- blade ceiling fans, and AC units in the 5 bedrooms (for those who want them- many will not so that they can be soothed by the ocean/mountain breezes and the sound of the crashing waves).

You will now enjoy a covered chic seating area on the lower seaside facing terrace, and a covered front porch with built in seating. We will certainly preserve the many wonderful mid-century features of this home.

This unspoiled area is one of the few fisherman's villages that welcomes tourist -- not a tourist area that tolerates fishermen.

Our five-bedroom beachfront villa includes a 50-foot lap pool, private tennis and croquet courts, and wonderful cook-housekeepers.

You can walk deserted beaches, or snorkel, body-surf, or fish. You can photograph and share the lives of our fishermen neighbors; or you can enjoy the privacy of an acre-plus lot, shielded by trees and flowers.

Privacy: We're in a fishing village, but shielded by heavy plantings on an acre and a quarter. And you even pick your own tropical fruit! Our village neighbors will welcome you if you choose to visit, but will not intrude. Watch for returning fishing boats from our patio, then walk 300 yards to the harbor to watch fish weighed and sold -- and bring some home! Or walk to the west over a series of all-but-deserted beaches, half-mile scallops of sandy beach separated by reef spurs you can climb over or wade over in reef shoes.

We allow two tradespeople -- a basket maker and wood carver -- to come into the back yard to show their wares. Miss Vanecia will tell you they're there; it you say no thanks, they'll pack up and leave.

You can walk a hundred yards down our lane, if you'd like, to learn to play grown-up dominoes at a neighbor's bar.

Touristic things: Our groundskeeper leads a walk into the hills behind us, pointing out birds and orchids.

You can drive to Black River, or hire a local boatman, to see the historic slave-trading block, visit the colorful local outdoor market, or -- best of all -- go up the river a few miles, through mangrove forests and open marshlands occupied by colorful birds and crocodiles. On the way home, stop at the famous Pelican Bar for a drink.

The night sky and views : With almost no light pollution, the stars are brilliant. Go for a midnight dip in the pool, but once there turn the pool lights off to enjoy the magnificent sky. Only one Dipper at a time to the north; the Southern Cross rising over the ocean during the night.

Our wide patio catches an onshore breeze most of the day, and gives you a panoramic view of the Caribbean at your doorstep so wide you'll have to turn your head to take it all in.

All this while Miss Vanecia and Miss Elesha keep house for you, shop and prepare and serve all meals, and make it a very special vacation.

Why Treasure Tours chose Treasure Beach

It is easy to make friends with fishermen in our area, and we did. The area has remained relatively undeveloped because the South Coast is in a 'rain shadow': the northeast trades wring themselves out on the mountain spine, so we have half as much rain as Ocho Rios. For many years, we relied largely on rain caught on the rooftop. Large-scale hotels just weren't possible. Piped water arrived a few years ago, but tourist development has been blessedly slow.

What makes this villa unique

The house accommodates up to ten-- but when one wants to be alone, there are a half-dozen places to sit, birdwatch, read or just contemplate the Caribbean.

Incredible Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hikaru between Christmas and New Years and it was the most incredible week. Eleshia and Vaneshia were incredibly attentive and Rebecca checked on us several times and arranged some trips for us. We felt right at home with the entire staff and by the end of the week we felt like they were part of our family.

Patrick, the groundskeeper was amazing and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. We loved getting to know him and the ladies of the house as well. Our kids, ages 18, two 7 year olds, and a 3 year old, allade friends with the locals and were immediately accepted by the locals, who played with and went out of their way to include our kids in their fun.

The house was perfect and lovely in every way. We had so much fun swimming in the gorgeous pool and the beach was perfect. We had incredible breakfasts and dinnners each day outdoors overlooking the sea. The ladies made every effort to make our meals special and nice and we loved eating in and being treated like family. The rooms are all beautiful and comfortable and the outside showers were a real treat.

We cannot ever fully explain how amazing our time at Villa Hikaru was, but they are memories that will last a lifetime. Our kids loved every minute of this trip and my husband and I were left totally enchanted by the lovely home, but even more by the sweet and wonderful people we met. This is an all around dream trip!

Impressively relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at Hikaru. The accommodation was well laid out and there were lots of areas to relax in. We were there to attend my father's funeral nearby so needless to say it was a stressful time for our family, however Hikaru was the perfect sanctuary with the atmospheric sounds of the sea just at the end of the property, the immaculate pool, peaceful gardens and friendly locals. The staff were very kind and helpful as well providing amazing food and caring lovingly for the living space. I was there with my husband, son, 4 nephews and a couple of adult cousins over the period of our stay.

A true treasure indeed.

  • 5 of 5

This house and the lovely ladies are the true treasure in Treasure Beach. The house is wow in every way and there is not one fault I could find. The lovely ladies who keep the house so beautifully clean and cook the most special food are the true representation of old world Jamaica and the essence of what I fell in love with in this dear country 30 years ago. If you love good style, beautiful views, walking on the beach, swimming in the perfect temp pool, playing tennis or cards, and eating super delicious food then this is the place for you.

Perfect place to unwind and rejuvenate!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a place where you can unplug from the day-to-day hustle and bustle, Villa Hikaru will help you forget about it all. From reconnecting with nature by walking on the private beach just steps away, being lulled to sleep by the sounds of waves while relaxing on the chaise on the veranda, and lots of comfortable areas to curl-up and take in the breathtaking views; our family enjoyed every moment.

We woke up every morning to the smell of a delicious breakfast spread that was only topped by an equally fantastic dinner. Vanesia and Elisha are fabulous cooks and their warm hearts made us feel right at home.

The bed and bath rooms are beautifully decorated and it is not hard to miss all of the design details. However, I guarantee you will not spend much time in them. You'll much rather be outside soaking in the peace and tranquility or watching the beautiful sunset. We can't wait to go back!

Perfect Caribbean Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our first steps into Hikaru took our breath away. As we walked into the colorfully and stylishly appointed villa and onto the terrace, we were greeted by the warmth of the ocean breeze and a stunning view of the sea. Our sense of wonder never left us during our week-long trip. The staff doted on us with such affection that we felt like long-lost family members. We dined on fresh and unfailingly delicious Caribbean delights each day. We spent hours frolicking in the well-maintained L-shaped lap pool. We soaked in the sun on the serene and quiet beach that lies just at the foot of Hikaru. The house itself is stunning - immaculate, comfortable, spacious, and filled with vibrant, creative design elements that were in full harmony with the natural beauty of Jamaica. The outdoor showers were a particularly luxurious treat. Villa Hikaru is such as treasure - the perfect place for anyone in search of an authentically-Caribbean and truly restorative vacation.
