THIS is the way to visit Jamaica! The house was beautiful, clean, and spacious, with a pool all to ourselves and a gorgeous beach in walking distance. The family who works for the homeowner made us amazing food and saw to our every need - from shopping to transportation. We loved our bike trips to Treasure Beach, sampling the food and atmosphere at Jakes, Jack Sprats, and 77 West. Fantastic reggae concerts on Sunday night just across the street. And my son even played some pick up soccer with the local kids at the sports center. In all, a fun, relaxing, safe, and delicious vacation.
Beautiful view with great staff
Six of us stayed for 7 nights at the Sandy Rose Villa in early January 2019. We have never been out of the US for vacation before and we wanted a memorable experience with Jamaicans not on a resort. Wow, this trip exceeded my expectations!
Starting with the staff who were so welcoming on the very first night. They greeted us at the van where the staff and the driver took our things upstairs for us. The cooks, Ena and Nadine, were absolutely amazing and I wish I could have a couple weeks to cook with them and learn a few things. Yes, they were that good! They also communicated to Captain Neil and Teddy to set up our boat trips. They assisted us in making a local phone call for the driver to come get us last minute to go to a street dance.
We visited YS Falls, Black River (saw dolphins on the way and crocs on the river), Floyd's Pelican Bar, Accompong on their annual celebration, and sunny island. We used the refreshing pool nearly every single day. We ate fresh lobster on a couple of excursions which was amazing. We had a bonfire on the beach on our last night. Amazing!
If you are looking for a vacation that is away from all the hustle and bustle of the city, this place is perfect. There are drivers that you can get to take you where you'd like to go. Both drivers are great. I wouldn't want to navigate those roads!
The home is simple and cozy. I slept well here and that says a lot. We felt comfortable and never threatened. Howard is the grounds keeper and ensures the safety of the guests while at the house. The dog on the grounds is good at keeping you safe too :)
While every vacation has a least favorite part, we all say it was the lack of warmer water for the shower. It's solar heated so the luke warm water didn't last long. For us, that wasn't a huge issue though and we would most certainly stay again. I can't wait to see our new friends in Treasure Beach again!
Seriously consider a stay here...it's worth every penny and more. Also, don't forget to tip the staff, they work hard!
I absolutely loved my stay here the staff was the best Howard Kenny Kevin Ted nadine and ina And all the other staff from our tours to our guide we had the time of our lives!!! Shut out to the pelican bar and Jack Spratt bar and restaurant two very special places we had a ball at Will come back can wait thank you Adaria for your wonderful house
David, his wife Jenneka and their friend Bob were a pleasure to host.. Our staff Ena, Nadine and Howard were treated very well and would be happy to have them back for another vacation.
Excellent getaway from the hustle and bustle of life, though still having the modern amenities.
This properry is exactly as described, the staff is great.
We loved Sandy Rose Villa
Our family of 5 (kids age 13, 10, and 7) had an incredible time on our first trip to Jamaica staying at Sandy Rose. The house is perfect, well set up and taken care of, and in an unbelievable location. Treasure Beach is a quiet and very cool get away from it all kind of place, and Sandy Rose even more so. Ocean access is right down the road and pretty much your own private beach, and the pool is great for kids. Ena and Nadine are outstanding cooks, and Howard is the consummate tour guide. There are a ton of activities in the area, including a trip to pristine YS Falls, and a boat trip up the Black River with Lobster lunch. We really can't recommend it enough.
We stayed at this villa for a week in July and had the most amazing holiday. Ena, Nadine and Howard (the staff) were truly fantastic. Ena and Nadine provided some of the best meals we have ever tasted and Howard made sure our 15 year old son felt at home, by inviting us all to a local cricket match and inviting our son to play football with the local village team. All of the locals were so friendly we truly felt at home. The villa itself is well kitted out with everything you need and the owner, Adaria, was absolutely fantastic with regular contact throughout and answering my many and varied questions prior to our arrival. The villa is off the beaten track and it would have been a good idea for us to hire a car rather than rely on the local taxi company, which turned out to be more expensive than we expected. However, now we have experienced a Jamaican holiday, would definitely return to this villa in the future (with a hire car!) and can highly recommend a stay here. If you want to experience local culture and immerse into local life, Treasure Beach is the place for you. The endless beaches are almost deserted and there are hardly any other tourists, which we loved.
Treasure Beach is an unspoiled series of fishing villages 30 minutes east of Black River. Local activities include swimming, snorkeling, hiking, biking and boat tours. Exciting boat tours of Black River, Jamaica’s largest and third longest river, includes mangroves, bird sanctuaries, crocodiles, and a stop at the Pelican Bar (a cool bar with hammocks in the middle of the sea). This boat tour can be started right from the Sandy Rose Villa's beachfront area. Other attractions include YS Falls, a spectacular waterfall with pools, rope swings, and gardens, tours of Appleton Rum Factory, a visit to Lover's Leap, a 1,700-foot cliff overhanging the sea which has a breathtaking vistas, golf courses in Mandeville, and Alligator Pond featuring 'Little Ochie' fish restaurants. The annual Calabash Literary Festival each May attracts artists and poets worldwide. There are also many great restaurants/bars in Treasure Beach, including our favorites, Jakes, Jack Sprat, and The Wild Onion.
