Born and growing up in Jamaica was a great and beautiful experience. Having traveled and lived overseas, I have always wanted to offer visitors a taste of our exquisite Jamaican culture. Our warm smiles, laughter, music and exotic cuisine is guaranteed to be memorable. .As a 'well-being' enthusiast I have tried to create a setting that will truly de-stress, yet offer an unforgettable holiday experience for those visiting our island

We picked this rental because of close access to Beaches resort where we were going to a destination wedding. Jennifer the property manager was a wonderful host and set us up with local taxi's to get around, We had several Jamaican breakfasts and a dinner at La Vista which were quite good. The entire staff was helpful and met our every need. I would recommend La Vista to anyone staying in the Ocho Rios area of Jamaica.
The property is spotless clean and is maintained every day. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the view is just amazing. We received a very generous welcome basket and the local Jamaican food was cooked to perfection and had a very reasonable price.
Definitely exceeded expectations in terms of service!
My husband and I stayed at Claudia's B&B for three nights during our Christmas holiday. Claudia, Jennifer, and the rest of the team have thought of every detail to make you feel at home. After traveling all day from the US it was so nice to have snacks and drinks in our fridge along with a welcome dinner. The view and sound of the ocean accompanied by the palms rustling from sea breeze makes this location very special. We had read in reviews about traffic sounds and will say there was some traffic noise however is it mostly drowned out by ocean in the day and crickets chirping in the evening.
My husband and I rented a car which allowed for us to easily get to all of the attractions. If you are not secure in your driving ability I would recommend utilizing the tour guide they offer through the property. I would also recommend going to Dunn's River Falls. If you do go plan to go first thing in the morning (right when it opens) to avoid the influx of people from the cruise ships. My husband is a paraglider. Claudia was able to connect him with a local so he could get some air time. They even provided him with a local cell phone to use in case he needed to get in touch with the villa while he was out. If you are looking for a relaxing day at the Villa Jennifer offers excellent onsite massages. There is also an infinity pool overlooking the ocean as well as hammocks, lounge chairs, and swings!
Dining (usually available at an additional cost): Sandra and Jennifer do an excellent job with meal preparation and presentation. We were able to try several Jamaican dishes from their lovely seafront veranda. Prior to arriving Claudia asks if you have any meal restrictions and then Jennifer and Sandra plan accordingly. I really enjoyed the banana porridge, the callaloo, the Johnny Cakes, and my favorite, the plantain! Every meal was home cooked, a true Jamaican delight!
I would highly recommend staying at Claudia's B&B. As some of the other guests had commented, this property is oceanfront but does not have access to the sea. From my perspective Claudia has taken that into account in the price. Between the welcome meal, the breathtaking views, the well thought out amenities (kitchenettes, complimentary local snack baskets and drinks, hammocks, infinity pool, swings, etc), and the generous hospitality this property is VERY reasonably priced to under priced.
Thank you to the great team at Claudia's B&B for making our Jamaican experience so memorable!
If you're coming to visit the island, this ocean front cottage is a great place to stay! You will be enveloped with an authentic Jamaican vibe as soon as you arrive. The staff is super nice and very accommodating. Although I felt safe anywhere on the island, there is added peace of mind while on property with a locked gate at the front entrance. The staff simply buzzes you in and out at your leisure. This makes it easy for children to be left unsupervised while playing in the pool or whatever. Also, there are only two rooms so you would not have to worry about many other random guests. The room is very nice with all the comforts of home. There is an overhead ceiling fan as well as an oscillating fan to help regulate, however, there is no air conditioning. I was pleasingly surprised to find a snack basket with Jamaican treats and island grown fruits, as well as a stocked mini fridge with delicious juices, water, and of course a red stripe to start your vacation off right. They also supplied sunscreen and mosquito spray for yet another added bonus. I have to say the only negative aspect of the place is that there is no beach access. There is a great view of the ocean and swings down by the water but it is rocky down there so they have fenced off the shore line. All in all I would say this ocean front villa captures Jamaica's beauty and charm while keeping you comfortable throughout your stay. Yeah Mon!
My husband and I had the entire stay to ourselves. The Jamaican Cuisine was delicious and authentic. We felt like royalty. My hubby is a Jamaican Farmer and selects and prepares many of our family meals and said, "Wow,Mommy Sandra is good in that kitchen!"
Jennifer is professional and warm, and runs every detail like clockwork. Very knowledgeable and is detail oriented. She will not deny any reasonable and safe request for her guest/family. You really feel like you're at your own Home away!
Lucien keeps the property safe and picturesque at all times. If the fruit ripens and falls into that clear swimming pool, he will salvage what he can for the guests; feed the birds or geckos. Nothing is wasted at this place! Echo friendly has no air conditioned cold air, and has hot water shower or tub. Be sure to specify all dietary needs and exclusions.
The view of the zero edged pool and ocean were breathtakingly better than any photo could capture. We had a few storms and the cable was off, but it made our visit even more special. We turned all the technology off and reconnected. My hubby and I have been trying to naturalize him dor four years and have been taking care of ourselves apart. . . saying this to say. . . "We looked ar our wedding day photos, talked about our future Together and Prayed; we were only disturbed when called for dinner or if awaken for snacks, or told the hammock was out!
The Sunsets were surreal and we've never been treated so lovely.
We will book again at Holiday Season. Thank You Claudia & Staff for giving us a Cherished Memory and many more to come!

My girlfriend and I stayed at this property for 3 nights and we were blown away by the outstanding hospitality provided by Claudia, Jennifer, Sandra, & Lucien. We were initially greeted by Jennifer who was very sweet and friendly and so helpful with researching activities to do in the area. She was always around if you needed anything. Sandra's cooking is amazing! The best curry goat we've ever had! And Lucien went above and beyond with doing favors and running errands for us. All 3 always had a smile on their face!
Claudia has an amazing team and an absolutely gorgeous property! Best part was we got engaged in their backyard!!! This was an experience we will never forget and we will DEFINITELY be back soon! I highly recommend this property to anyone staying in Ochi! THANK YOU
The property is centrally positioned along the North Coast at Boscobel only 20 minutes from Ocho Rios. Its central location means that you are easily connected to the highway that takes you to many other enjoyable attractions along Jamaica's North Coast. Take in Noel Cowards, Golden Eye, minutes from the property, or venture further to look at Blue Lagoon in the parish of Portland. If in Portland, then you have to visit Boston Beach and sample authentic jerk chicken, or pork at this great facility. Take a picture of the famous Blue Lagoon . Everyone wants to climb the falls in Ocho Rios. As the name translates from Spanish its the meeting of eight river tributaries, to give you a spectacular falls which everyone must take the challenge to climb. Don't forget to wear sticky shoes if you want to climb faster. Feeling a bit more dare devil, then visit Mystic mountain especially if you like zip lining through our lush vegetation. Swimming with the Dolphins at Dolphin Cove is just across the road, but a word of warning. This attraction is always so fully booked, it would be best to book ahead of your trip. Its worth it. We have our own mineral springs in Ocho Rios now so you can visit Blue Hole in Ocho Rios as well. En route to Ocho Rios there are many private and public beaches. James Bond Beach is 5 minutes from the property, and is a paying beach but really nice to hang out with friends. There is White River rafting just 10 minutes away, and you can always enjoy private available water sports both near to the property as well as in Ocho Rios. If you want to sample some of our local culture, visit the fish market in Ocho Rios and talk to the fishermen as they bring their boats in. You might want to try cooking some of the catch or just tasting some, as there is a restaurant there as well. You can venture further afield to both Montego Bay and Negril both with even more white sand beaches and great offerings on hand. Yes life's a beech here, and we wait to welcome you to our island for what will be an unforgettable holiday. See you soon!!
