Our five bedroom Ocean front villa, with an infinity edge pool just off our large covered verandah surrounded in a tropical garden and conveniently located between the resort towns of Ocho Rios and Runaway Bay on Jamaica's North Coast. This beautiful home is privately tucked away at Chukka Cove Polo Club and hub of Chukka Caribbean Adventure tours. ‘Brown Shuggah’ provides a unique access to a truly Jamaican experience. This dream home was built with love and attention to details and finishes. Designed with three indoor courtyards to bring nature in, it is a very open, warm and inviting home. Over 6,600 Sq Ft, we think the design blends Farm House, Great House, and Caribbean villa all in one. It is nestled on a horse farm and hidden amidst pastures, fruit trees, and lush foliage on the edge of dramatic ocean front cliffs in a rural setting.
Complete opposite to the large all-inclusive resorts, it sits in a large lawn area shared with 6 other privately owned villas. Here in the country, you may wake up to the sound of roosters, can listen to the crickets and frogs songs at night or go for a morning and evening walk around the polo field and watch the horses returning home or going to pasture. The family dogs Madonna and Mr. Bojangles also live on property and do their part to protect the house at night but will respect your space.
So immerse yourself in the real Jamaica and soak your cares away in the turquoise waters of the cove or in the private pool off the verandah. A safe place to vacation without being locked in a compound!
Your private paradise has a master and ensuite, sitting room, bathroom and outdoor shower. The master suite includes a living/sitting area with comfy couches and coffee table, and doors that open out to an incredible ocean view, the perfect place to wake up or unwind after the day. The second and third bedrooms both have ensuite bathrooms.
This home boasts two more living rooms, one inside between two open courtyards (orchid-west and tropical –east), large glass folding doors open onto an expansive furnished covered verandah. A powder room and dining room. TV room and adjoining recreational (exercise-elliptical and free weights / kiddies play room). The kitchen opens right into breakfast nook and both enjoy views of the front gardens and the indoor orchid courtyard. There is also an outdoor seating and dining area outside under the almond tree - where you can relax and enjoy the cool breeze or star gaze.
The cliffs at Chukka Cove are dramatic and extensive, great for exploring or simply listening to the sound of the waves crashing ashore. On calm days, a ladder takes you into the cool clear waters.
On property is a small sandy cove, safe and perfect for young children to swim and play. On days when the sea swells are up and you seek calmer waters, a two minute walk along the edge of the polo field takes you to the spectacular Chukka Bay, a sheltered bay where the waters are always calm and cliff jumping, swimming and snorkeling are the order of the day.
