This property (Olcam Lodge) belonged to my father, who took time over the years to restore the property to its natural beauty. What I love most about the property is the space and the luxury yet homely feel. It is private yet close enough to essential amenities and tourist attractions. My family and I have spent many vacations here. Since owning the property I have made a number of improvements including the addition of a swimming pool, hot tub and master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Guests’ feedback is important to me and helps shape future improvements to the property.
Very tranquil. Lots of space and a homely feel.
Our stay at Oclam Lodge was unforgettable start to finish! The location was jaw-dropping, backing onto the the 18th green of the famous run away bay golf course & just a stones throw away from the paradise beach that is run away bay.
The staff were incredible, everything was catered for, We took our 18th month year old & ms Sharon was an outstanding hostess & we felt more than comfortable.
We've already booked our second vacation for February & we really couldn't recommend any higher 'FIVE STARS'... a real must

We had a lovely time at Olcam Lodge. The staff was excellent, and the only areas of improvement that I would suggest would be some of the outdated aspects of the bathrooms, and the lack of screens to help prevent mosquitoes/flies, etc. We do hope to return in the future.
2 families shared Olcam Lodge for a week just before Christmas 2012. We had an absolutely fantastic time due mostly to the gracious staff and the beautiful property. Ms Sharon made quick friends with the entire party and kept us well fed and very comfortable. Damien (Platup) kept the grounds, pool and hot tub clean and working properly all week. Our driver, Donovan was a priceless resource in getting us around the island safely. We would highly recommend this property to anyone seeking a more real Jamaican experience than the typical resort-style vacation. We were able to try different cuisine, spend plenty of time on the beach, and were in close proximity to many attractions.
We had a wonderful time at the Olcam villa. It was very nicely decorated and we felt at home. They went out of their way to make us feel at home and relaxed. The kids enjoyed the pool a lot. Whenever we needed to go somewhere they were there to help us and even helped us save money. We were even able to enjoy some fruits and vegetables from the property including mangoes and plantains! It was great. I look forward to going back for our next vacation in Jamaica. This was the first time we didn't go to one of the expensive resorts, and it was a much better value and a better time overall. No fighting for a space at the pool, everything was ours alone! What a way to vacation!
We stayed at Olcam Lodge for 10 days this February and we had a lovely time! We made a last minute booking. There were 13 of us, which is higher than the max capacity of the property, but the owners were flexible and accommodated our group size at no extra cost. We had our elderly grandmother with us, so it was ideal having the fifth smaller bedroom on the ground floor for her to stay in.
We loved everything about the property; the space, privacy, beautiful garden and most of all the pool which kept the children entertained. The private beach was nice also and within walking distance from the property. The photos of the property were pretty accurate and the property was clean and well maintained.
We had been trying to rent a big enough vehicle for our group size and were having difficulty. The owners at Olcam Lodge helped us out with this and at very short notice. I can’t thank you enough for this!
We had full maid/cook service. The maid/cook was very pleasant and arrived each day to prepare our daily meals. Sharon you are a great cook. Thanks!
We felt safe in the property. The lower windows were grilled, we had access to a safe and security is provided each evening as part of the rental cost.
No negatives from us. We would definitely stay again if we return to Jamaica.
There was a bit of false advertising when we initially booked. This has been corrected due to our complaints. The house is beautiful however we felt that we did not get what was advertised. The website listed there being three rooms with king sized beds. Well none of the rooms had a king sized bed, the largest bed was queen sized (according to US and Caribbean standards). The other rooms had full sized beds . We were not told of this beforehand and were very disappointed by this. The website also listed there being 4 ensuite bathrooms. Well this is not true either because there are only 2 ensuite bathrooms. The third bathroom is shared between two rooms which by definition is a jack and jill. Furthermore one of the bathroom doors did not lock, so you had to hope that someone on the other end would just come busting through the doors. The fourth bathroom is not even a bathroom as it is a half bath downstairs! The fifth bedroom advertised is the sleeping quarters for the maid, so you are really getting 4 bedrooms and not 5. The website lists that there is private beach access. Also incorrect, when we got there we were told that there was private beach access with an access card, however, the card was missing and had not been replaced! We had to shell out additional monies simply to get to access to the private beach! The staff also resides in the house. The maid sleeps downstairs which my Jamaican family thought was very unusual. Having owned a villa themselves, they are used to a maid coming at 8am and leaving at 5pm. Additionally, the night “security” and the “yard boy” sleep in the basement. However, they also have access to our living area through the gate. They are friendly and nice, however when going on vacation with your family, you don’t anticipate others in your living space.
The worst part of all was the fact that we were robbed in broad daylight. We left to venture in the town and left my mom, dad and 2 year old nephew at home. While they were downstairs the thief came in via the upstairs balcony. There is a tree hanging over the balcony that the thief climbed on, then walked on the balcony, then broke a window (which is right above the balcony). They took my wedding ring, engagement ring, iphone, laptop, camera, and perfume. It was distressing to say the least!
All in all we would not stay here again, mainly for how the management handled everything. We were refunded 50% of our rental fee, but we felt we were owed a full refund.
