Staying here was a far better experience in the fact that we feel we got to experience the people and love of Jamaica in a much more intimate experience.

The villa is situated close to the beach and is set up nicely for groups. What made the stay especially wonderful was the hospitality of the staff."

Ready to look beyond the all-inclusive resort for a total Jamaican indulgence? Our privately owned, 5-bedroom, 4.5-bath villa at the edge of the Caribbean in Ochos Rios will win you over. You might just swear off Sandals forever!


Only the very best… Jamaican Ocean View Villas offer you a full on-site staff, including chef, butler, chauffeur*, and cleaning service, who focus on making your vacation exceptional. They’ll learn your favorite drink, make you a delicious authentic Jamaican meal, drive you to nearby excursions in a private car, and introduce you to the very best of Ochos Rios. Friendly—but never intrusive—hospitality! You will be spoiled immediately with complimentary refreshments, fruits and snacks upon your arrival. Curate your own menu with our chef before you arrive to meet the needs of your entire party.

Even better, Jamaica Ocean View Villa is located in an upscale, gated community, 200 yards from a residents-only beach, a picturesque estuary where 8 rivers meet. We’re just as secure and safe as the resorts, but we also enjoy a residential neighborhood setting. You’ll love our private, resort-style swimming pool, too—that you won’t have to share!


The Jamaica Ocean View Villa recently underwent a design transformation with the help of a well-known interior and hospitality designer, and we can’t wait to show it off! Throughout, you’ll find true Jamaican elegance, with rich mahogany, lots of light, and refreshing white fabrics.

Our bedrooms are particularly exceptional. All 5 open up to their own private terrace…and 3 of them have Caribbean Ocean views. Three bedrooms also enjoy their own attached baths. The master suite has a spa-like bathroom with a glass-enclosed double shower and a deep, jetted tub for total indulgence.

If you have a very large group (11+ people), let us know and we will add extra beds to accommodate them. Because we have so much space at the villa, you won’t feel crowded in the slightest. Let’s not forget the games room replete with pool table, dart board and kid friendly Xbox, Wii, Netflix and toys.


Sip our signature Dark & Stormy cocktail on the terrace overlooking the sparkling pool with an ocean view. Eat the Jamaican Ocean View Villa way, outside at the dining table, with an al fresco atmosphere of warm tropical breezes. Our chef’s home -made delicacies will tantalize your taste buds in your private 5-star setting. The expansive pool will fit your entire party and offers a large terrace for sun worshippers. Want an even more luxurious experience, book an outdoor massage poolside to ensure you are completely relaxed. Our groundskeeper takes amazing care of the tropical landscaping that surrounds the terrace, as well as the pool itself!


It’s easy to explore the north coast of Jamaica from the villa! The nearest beach is just 200 yards away, and many other popular beaches are just a short drive away Just let our driver know where you’d like to go ~ we provide free transportation per day for guests spending a week or more at our villa.

We have several stunning beaches to choose from, such as James Bond Beach, Turtle Beach and more. Dunn’s River Falls (Jamaica’s most popular attraction) introduces you to the wild, rushing waters of Dunn’s River. Swim with dolphins. Horseback ride on the beach. Take a catamaran cruise, or enjoy world-class deep sea fishing, Check out the real Blue Lagoon, or raft down a river. Cliff jumping more of your thing or maybe an ATV safari tour. What about bobsledding at nearby Mystic Mountain, zip-lining, and canopy tours. We are not just your vacation rental owners, we are invested in your ideal vacation and will become your personal Jamaican travel agent to help you achieve your vacation dreams… and do it all on your OWN schedule, rather than following the resort’s pre-arranged timeline.

Convinced? Book soon! Our calendar at Jamaica Ocean View Villa is filling fast for 2015 and beyond.

About Cavel Capalbo

Thank you for stopping in to learn more about our family-run Villa. I’m Cavel Capalbo, my husband Kyle and I are the owners/operators of Jamaica Ocean View Villa. While Kyle and I have always loved to travel to destinations around the globe, Jamaica has always held a special place in our hearts.

When we planned our first trip from the U.S. to Jamaica with our youngest along, we quickly learned that a number of new resorts and luxury rentals were exclusive to “adults only.” Others had age restrictions like “families with children aged 12 and older welcomed,” or “No guests aged 15 to 17.”

Later, when we made the decision to build our rental property in Jamaica, we pledged two things: Ours would be a family-friendly villa that welcomed guests of all ages; and, We would build and appoint the villa with the finest materials and guest considerations possible.

In short, we built a luxury villa rental open to guests the world over, regardless of their age. Kyle and I chose our staff with abundant care, and in December 2006, Jamaica Ocean View Villa welcomed its very first guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Sorry for taking so long to respond but you can imagine after 10 days away I have been very busy. Everything was great. I have no complaints about the house or staff. They could not have been more accommodating. We really appreciated the set up of the party. The band was great. The graduation party was just as I envisioned with the band around the pool. I will ask some of my guests if they have any suggestions and pass on. Thank you and Millicent and Lindle.

We had 13 people at the facility with ages ranging from 12 years old to 66 years old. below is comments from representative of each age group

Mykl 30 years old

The experience at the Villa was phenomenal. The place itself was very welcoming and the location was entrenched strategically in a private area that provided comfort, but also made me feel that I was amongst the general populace. The scenic cliff side and the wonderful river that fed into the Ocean at the beach was a highlight that added to the experience.

The food prepared by Millicent was taste bud engaging and definitely gave the Jamaican authenticity I desired. Shout out to my favorite dish, the Callaloo!!!! The upkeep of the villa was up to par as well with no unusual instances of cleanliness that raised eyebrows.

As for the personnel, everyone was professionally withdrawn but also actively engaged and helpful when needed. Our driver Rudy, was the navigational informant with limitless knowledge of the beaches, restaurants, and other places of interest. Without doubt, he ensured our safe arrival and departure from the airport and all throughout Jamaica. Lindo (sp?) showed the guys a great time. He was the informational guru when it came to showing us the night life entertainment and the hot spots to watch the Basketball Finals.

The Villa facilitated a harmonious environment conducive for family bonding.

Marian 66 years old

Emile, everything was great! We really enjoyed ourselves and truly appreciated Millicent's attentiveness to providing us with delicious Jamaican cuisine. Also, they were excellent in providing you contact with what had to be one of Jamaica's best musical groups. The group's performance was fantastic and, as such, everyone had a wonderful time.

Another suggested place was the church by the sea. It was such a lovely setting with the breeze flowing in, the sound of the waves and the ocean view. The setting was truly remarkable.

Heavenly and Luxurious family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a 7 night stay at the Jamaica Ocean View Villa. This trip was to celebrate our 40th anniversary with our grown kids and grand kids.

From the moment we stepped out of our coach and viewed the beautiful villa crystal blue waters and tropical landscaped lawn, we knew we had been "welcomed home"!

We had high expectations for this vacation and we were not disappoint!

The service we phenomenal, every person went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of and pampered.

From Adrian our butler/bar tender setting up the beach bar, to the dining room, housekeeping every at the villa was a pleasure to be around.

The chef ( Ms. Juney) cooks some delicious cosines both Jamaican and American “ her sauce is the best”

Ms Herma keeps the house immaculately clean and tidy and is a joy to be around.

Shenell the manager always has a smile on her face, when she visit to see how we were enjoying our stay.

Brian keeps the pool and the lawn clean daily.

If the service wasn't enough, the beautiful grounds and beach top off all expectations of a great vacation.

The villa is located on a private, coved beach so you have no distractions from the large resorts nearby.

The décor of the villa is elegant and the photos does not really show how large the villa is. There are plenty of space for guest to relax.

We booked the all-inclusive meal plan and enjoyed breakfast every morning served on our veranda, lunch at the pool deck or dinner under the stars or in the dining room

The villa has a private bar and drinks are a fraction of the cost of the local bars and lounges.

Thank you Jamaica Ocean View Villa for staying true to who you are! We will be back

Excellent property and staff

  • 5 of 5

The villa was as advertised and had everything we were looking for. From the time of the reservation request, the owner Ms Cavel was very accommodating and even changed the dates for us as we had a last minute scheduling conflict. All our questions and inquiries had prompt responses. We were traveling with 5 children and she had a groceries ready for us when we got there.

The staff was amazing. Chef Jason cooked us some great meals. His food was way better than any restaurants we ate at. He asked us for what we liked and was open to our suggestions.

The rest of the staff was very attentive and accommodating and we never had a No for an answer. We were up pretty late at night and the housekeeper Herma was always awake to make sure we had everything we needed. She was amazing.

The kids and us had a great time in the pool. The bedrooms are spacious and well separated which was important as we had kids with us. The house was very clean and Herma made sure it stayed that way all the time.

Overall a great experience and I would definitely recommend the place to anyone visiting. The experience was way better than any hotel.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Jamaica Ocean View Villa is a beautiful property a few minute walk to the beach. It was very convenient to have the van and driver to take us around to the various attractions such as Dunn’s river falls, Mystic mountain and dolphin cove. The attractions are about a eight minute drive from the villa.

The staff was very friendly and helpful and the chef prepared the best Jamaican dishes for us. We were a group of 10(4 adults and 6 children aged 5-14) and the villa worked out very well for us.

All in all, a great vacation for all of us.

This is a gorgeous, well maintained home, it very clean, professional staff, lots of amenities and amazing views of the pool, ocean and mountain. We were so happy to be able to celebrate our daughter’s graduation in this beautiful house. In fact, we were so pleased with the villa that we decided to rent again in 2016. It was the perfect family Getaway!

Definitely an enjoyable experience

  • 3 of 5

I have vacationed in the Carribean numerous times and always have stayed in all inclusive resorts, however this time I wanted to stay in a Villa. When renting native villas its always important to remember that everything is not like it would be at home. Given that point overall our stay at Ms. Caval's Ocean View Villa was pretty good. There were a few hiccups in the house the first day with the pool and jacuzzi not being functional, lack of hot water and the not being welcomed with Rum Punch because ingredients were unavailable, however Ms. Caval made sure that despite hiccups she accommodated us with complimentary Red Stripe Beer and Malibu Rum and every appliance was fixed immediately. Our Home Manager and chef Millie was very pleasant. Her Jamaican cooking was indeed exceptional and was a hit with my friends and I. The other staff members Romario and Natalie were very friendly as well. The person who assisted us the best was Hewing, our driver, hired by the Ms

Caval . He was timely, accessible and professional. He went above and beyond his duty to make sure that we were comfortable, taken care of, and had an overall great experience. I would recommend him as a driver for all guest who stay at the Ocean View Villa. Thank You for a satisfying experience in St. Marie Rio Nuevo

Owner's Response: Alex. We're so sorry you didn't feel like you had a terrific experience. Our goal is to provide a wonderful accommodation for a fun and relaxing vacation As mentioned, our pool was shut off due to the lack of ability to finish regular maintenance in the continuous rain caused by a passing storm. We want to make sure our pool is working for a great guest experience, but I'm sure you'll agree we don't want to risk the lives of our pool maintenance team! We were very pleased the pool was back up and running early the following morning after your arrival at 7PM. Yes, the hot water system went down - luckily we were able to have an electrician there within 20 minutes, and it was up and running! The Jacuzzi was in full service upon your arrival at the villa until the 3rd day of your stay. The house manager was called to assist a member of your group with the Jacuzzi. Only to noticed that the drain was broken. The plumber was called and after examining the Jacuzzi, he found that the drain plug was twisted and tightened in the wrong direction. We offer our guest the choice of complimentary Red Stripe Beer or Jamaican Rum punch upon arrival. In your case we went above and beyond by offering you a complimentary bottle of Malibu along with red stripe beer. We're so happy you enjoyed the people that work with us to make your stay even more relaxing. While you're used to an all inclusive resort experience, in staying in a vacation rental offered by an owner, we're here to help in any way possible and address concerns as soon as they may come up. Thanks again for staying at our villa
