Optima Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was very much needed. I have traveled to Treasure Beach for 18 years our first to this property. Was all we wanted for our stay. Great location. Quiet , great walk to reaturaunts..

Pool was a bonus to cool off from the hot sun

The beach was within a few steps ...

Food and accommodations were awesome ...front porch was big enough for domino games with local friends

Great hang out if you didn't want to travel to town

Would stay again!!!

A well designed home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well designed home, well ventilated, cozy, comfortable indoor spaces as well as a huge porch for playing dominoes and sipping an ice cold Red Stripe. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms are all nicely sized with their own bathrooms and really comfy new beds. It's everything it is advertised as and much more.

The staff, Monica and Trudy, and owners Paolo and Tia, is what keeps us coming back to Treasure Beach. Their warmth and friendliness is what you will find everywhere you go. Their delicious meals are prepared twice a day and customized to your taste. Lobster, curried shrimp, jerk chicken and ackee for breakfast. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! Monica and Trudy were even thoughtful enough to serve us a romantic candlelight dinner the night before our friends arrived. Thanks girls!

This home is very affordable, especially if you bring some friends. Paolo lives next door and can answer any questions you might have about the area. He greeted us with a nice gift of homemade soap and even brought over a freshly baked loaf of bread. Some days we were even treated to fresh coconuts.

We couldn't recommend Villa Optima enough and we will be back, it sits in front of the best swimming cove in the area and close to everything, which (this is why we like Treasure Beach) is not touristy. If you are looking for a truly laid back vacation, this is it. It's easier than you think, they'll pick you up at the airport and spoil you for as many days as you can get away, take a couple extra days, you won't be sorry. Soon Back

Owner's Response: Thank You so much for your review. It means a lot for us. I am so glad that we have participate to your happiness while in Treasure Beach. Thank You, Thank You. Paolo, Tia and the Staff.

Welcoming Villa Optima in Secluded Treasure Beach

  • 5 of 5

Two couples shared this spacious three bedroom Villa with a wrap around porch that faces secluded wharf bay across the street. We've been to Treasure Beach several times. There's a large living area that's connected to a well appointed kitchen. And best of all, Monica and Trudy are great cooks and even better hosts. They pampered us with great meals for breakfast and dinner... and made us feel part of the Treasure Beach family. The owner Paolo lives in the house next door and was very attentive without being in our way. Paolo even shared fresh coconuts with us several times. We would highly recommend Villa Optima if you're looking for a laid back, relaxing trip to a non-touristy area of Jamaica. Paolo partners with Rebecca at Treasure Tours for transportation to and from the Montego Bay airport. It's about a 2-1/2 hour trip across the mountains but well worth the drive with Kevin. HIghlights are daily "walkabouts" to Eggy's on the beach, Smurf's for breakfast if you want to give the girls a break, Jack Spratt's for conch soup, Junior's for Jerk or pea soup, Charmaine's for cold Red Stripe, Charlie for hand made local crafts. Captain Dennis for boat tours, Miss Dawn's for great hand roasted coffee. The list of wonderful new and old friends goes on. Explore and find your own new adventures.

Very good stay for group of friends or family

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 adults and kids and stayed 2 nights. The house is very spatial, with nice terraces, lots of space. Beach is just across the road. It is very quiet, no cars noise. Perfect for big families or groups of friends. But lots of mosquitos, come prepared!

Great place to stay in Treasure Beach

  • 5 of 5

First off let me say that driving to treasure beach in Jamaica is a bit of adventure itself. Jamaicans are not big on road signs/ fixing pot holes which led to both a flat tire and couple accidental side trips on the way to the villa. It's nice to have a car in Treasure Beach, but be aware that it will take about 3 hours to drive there from Montego Bay and it isn't the easiest place to find until you get to know the area.

Paolo for whatever reason refuses to accept payment in any form other than wire or cash, which made me very wary of dealing with him. However, he is legit and he is super nice. He helped us get our flat fixed and went out of his to make sure we had a great stay. I trust Paolo 100% now and wouldn't hesitate to wire him money, even though some people might not want to do that.

The house itself is great. 3 Bedrooms, each with it's own bath and one of the rooms has two beds. AC in the bedrooms to stay cool at night. Kitchen is well equipped, and the living room is comfortable. The interior roof of the house is just unfinished wood which is kinda funky-cool, but also looks a little shabby. Monica was the housekeeper/chef for us and did an amazing job, her cooking was some of the best I had in Jamaica. The house has a wonderful porch for lounging and is right across the road from a great beach. Locals come to this beach because it is somewhat protected from the waves by a reef and is very calm to swim in. You can also walk around and explore other beaches in the area, but we spent most of our time at the beach right across from the house because it was that nice (though it isn't a large beach- it's surrounded by some rocky areas on both sides).

Paolo also graciously offered to pick up groceries for us in the big city before we got there to get things that hard to find locally and save some money. There is a smaller grocer in TB that has most anything you could need though. There is no ATM in TB.

We discovered about 3 cockroaches in the house while we stayed. Not a big deal to me, but that might be a big turnoff for some. Otherwise the house appeared quite clean and well kept. One night a cat (we think) somehow opened a partially closed screen and grazed on some of our bread. Perhaps he let in some cockroaches too. The power went off temporarily after a storm, but Paolo has a generator he fired up for us and the power company had it fixed in a few hours.

Overall I think this house was great value, and I would definitely stay there again.

About Owner / Property Manager

I am Italian and lived in Jamaica for the last 18 years. Came here for a short vacation and decide to stay here for the rest of my life.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this villa in 2000

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Treasure Beach

This area is just magical

What makes this villa unique

I built this home with the idea of a perfect beach-home

Guestbook comments from the manager

“Perfect getaway, the beach is litterally across the road”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2014

Second visit at Villa Optima, we love the place.

The setting is priceless, you cross the road and are on a nice sandy cove with not too much waves, as we have young children we only take a towel / sand toys and if we need to change or feed them we get back (and forth) to house (and beach) in a minute, this is priceless.

At 8 am and as of 5 pm you have the beach all for yourself. Water is clear, you can see fishes close to the rocks, observe crabs, shells (my little one loves it).

There is a nice garden in the property with pond with turtles, koi fishes, frogs (first time my son saw a "real frog", he was over the moon). Also a trampoline (kids love it, we do stargazing at night, the sky is very clear, it's amazing), swings (baby swing is broken though but there is a big kid's swing), slide, even a sturdy plastic tricycle perfect for our 4 y.o.

Bedrooms are nice, there are both home and beach towels in each bathroom, large and of good quality. One of the bathrooms has a bathtub which is nice when you travel with a baby. All rooms have AC except the living room.

Kitchen is working well, we like to bring everything with us so that we know we have everything at hand. Monica the helper / cook is very helpful and smart, she baby sitted our kids twice and averything went well. Paolo and Tia the owners have a true sense of hospitality, they even baked homemade bread for us (and homemade soap as a little gift, very nice).

Do take mosquito repellent, coils, spray and nets as there can be mosquito bites but nothing that will ruin the getaway :) The living room can get hot (as it has no AC but the room is very large so AC would not make sense), but at night it is cool, there are fans in it, and we usually have lunches on the patio where it is shady and there is the sea breeze and the sound of the waves.

Just a perfect getway in family. We treasure the moments and memories collected there.
