Traveled to Jamaica lots of times but after my first stay in sea rose villa in March I had to return in July. The best stay I ever had, my new home away from home. Dave was the best and the owner is so cool and accommodating. This is s real dream in Jamaica.😍😍

genuine Jamaican relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 had a very nice stay at this snug villa. Well maintained, simply furnished and meticulously clean. Plenty of space inside plus great front porch and upper balcony for enjoying the breezes. It's a short drive from pretty much all the north coast sights. You may want a rental car for maximum flexibility although they're happy to arrange for a courteous driver. This is not the place for you if you crave bustling shopping areas or partying clubs. What you get is a taste of real Jamaican coastal life, slow paced and sun drenched. Best part is perhaps the chance to know the lovely staff, who somehow make you feel as if you've come home. Be sure to ask Adessa to cook some ackee with salt fish!

Better than advertised!

The owners of Sea Rose Villa are modest about their beautiful home, and the photos just don't do it justice! If you're looking for a more authentic Jamaican vacation, this is the way to do it! We stayed at a resort last time, and though it was terrific too, this is a much more relaxing vacation. The staff accommodated our schedule instead of us being subject to the resort requirements to control a "herd". The Villa is set in a peaceful neighborhood in the middle of a beautiful and peaceful garden. Flowers, fruit trees and grass along with the sound of the ocean from just across the street makes Sea Rose a lovely place to return home to after a busy day of doing "whatever the heck we want!" Runaway Bay is easy access to Ocho Rios attractions, but you can choose to stay away on cruise ship days. So far (as I write, we're still in paradise), we've visited Mystic Mountain (which is beautifully done - and my daughter says it was "the best day of my life"), but is definately pricey!! We also did ATV tours with Wilderness Tours combined with Dunn's River Falls. I highly recommend them! About half the price of anyone else, extreme personal attention, and they only ATV tour around that allowed our 7 year old to ride. We were also treated to a driving tour by "Teacher", the Sea Rose Driver, to and around Ocho Rios. Adessa cooks AMAZING food in somehow just exactly the right portions. We feel satisfied without being bloated and miserable while trying to enjoy the island.

The house feels just enormous with four private decks. We've opted to eat breakfast outside every morning, which is total bliss. The evening is definately mosquito time, though! Better to dine in the large ding room. We've enjoyed having our iPods/iPhones hooked up to the music system in the main room, and just lounging on our gorgeous front porch. More than anything, interacting with the locals and making fast friends around the neighborhood has been a total treat. Dining requests and times have been handled with "no problem".

Also, the master bedroom with a CalKing bed is HUGE! With two outdoor decks and the breeze blowing through all of the screened windows, it's just a treat! The air conditioning units in the bedrooms really pump out the cool air and make a perfect amount of noise for great sleep.

If you're looking for either a quiet romantic vacation or a laid back family vacation, the Sea Rose Villa is an incredibly economic AND beautiful way to go about it!

Owner's Response: We're so glad your stay was enjoyable. There's just no way to describe how wonderful Sea Rose is with just a photo or descriptive text- but you have! We would also like to thank you for mentioning the great meals that Adassa prepares. She our best kept secret. Safe travels and happy vacations!

What a lovely place of peace and quiet. We enjoyed our stay at Searose so much - it was hard to go back to the "real' world.The accomodations are everybit as nice as described; the food and servicee was outstanding. We really felt as if we were guests at a friend's home, who happened to not be there. Addassa even went to the trouble to make an apple pie for an old Minnesotan who requested it. Jamaican apples are so small, she must have peeled half the afternoon! "Ackee" the Jamaican dish became a favorite of ours, too. Thank you Kevin and Debi for sharing your lovely home.

GETTING MARRIED AT THE SEA ROSE WAS PERFECT – We looked at many places in Denver Colorado to get married and once we started planning all of the details became overwhelming. After going over our flower options at a local florist “Simply Beautiful Flowers,” Barbara the owner knew that we were looking for something simple yet beautiful without all of the frustration and planning. Barbara told us she had a friend that owned a villa in Jamaica and it would be a beautiful place to get married. My fiancé and I were going on a cruise that was stopping in Ocho Rios on February 16, 2009 and this sounded like a wonderful place to be married. With it being a cruise, we only had one day for all of this to fall in place, Barbara made a few phone calls to the owner and Addassa who bent over backwards to make our wedding a reality. Everything was ready from the transportation which was provided by Hugh Johnson (he was on time and a very nice man), flowers and decorations, the marriage license, ceremony that was done by Rev. Michael A. Campbell (who was wonderful), rose pedals in our room, to the most incredible Jamaican Lobster lunch with all of the trimmings and wedding cake all done by Addassa and her team. We were treated very graciously and will never forget how perfect everyone made our special day! Thank you to all at the Sea Rose and a special thank you to Addassa; you are a precious and special lady! Ann and Randel Broomfield, ColoradoDate of stay February 16, 2009
