Located in the beautiful parish of Portland, this vacation rental has all the comforts of home. The home is located 5-7 minutes from downtown Port Antonio, and 15-20 Minutes from all beaches. If rafting on the Rio Grand is on your agenda, we are only a 10-minute drive away. Centrally located, and nestled in one of the safest parishes in Jamaica, I am sure you will return year after year.

About Donna-Marie Cole-Malott

I was born and raised in the beautiful town of Port Antonio, and I now live in West Chester, Pa. I visit Port Antonio annually, and consequently for the vast majority of the year my vacation home is empty. I am listing this property to share this beautiful tranquil retreat with you. Because I enjoy having a space to call my own, with all the comforts of life, I have created a space that fits that mold, and I am sure you will be pleased with this rental. I am a teacher, a mother and a wife, and this space allows me to vacation with my family while finding moments to read, relax, and enjoy the beautiful ocean breeze.

Donna-Marie Cole-Malott purchased this house in 1997

Why Donna-Marie Cole-Malott chose Port Antonio

Located just 5-7 minutes from down town Port Antonio, you are close to an amazing town, and you are surrounded by one of the most lush, bountiful places in the world. The property has fruits bearing trees that produce year round, from Jackfruit, breadfruit, ackee, mangoes, and pineapples etc…. You can tour the property and eat to your heart’s desire. This home is located just 10 minutes from the amazing Rio Grande, and all beaches are between 10-20 minutes away. I am certain that you will fall deeply in love with this amazing town (as I have), and you will return year after year!

Incredible stay...

  • 5 of 5

I sincerely hope I have the words that will do my stay at Tranquil Retreat justice. From the pre-booking to post-stay, Donna was there to ensure that my stay was as comfortable as possible. Having a communicative and responsive host is a major part in meeting your expectations. Then arriving at the home and it being exactly as pictured and described was the icing on the cake.

The home was spacious and clean. Getting to and from town was a breeze, with route taxis passing throughout the day. This is a huge plus because it makes getting to all of the gems Port Antonio has to offer that much easier and less expensive.

If you're looking for a clean, easily accessible, quiet home with a phenomenal host: THIS IS IT!

Best place to stay! Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed in Port Antonio for 6 weeks for an international placement. We found Tranquil Retreat online and were absolutely pleased with our stay. The home is sitting on top a hill overlooking a beautiful view. Donna-Marie was an amazing host along with the help of Keisha and Dale. All three were very responsive and helpful throughout our stay in Jamaica. The house is equipped with wifi, tv, and washer- this made our stay more accommodating. Donna- Marie's home easily became our home away from home and there's no doubt that we will be coming back to stay again!

Comfortable Home Away from Home

  • 4 of 5

One of the reasons we decided to stay at this property was Donna (the owner)'s responsiveness to emails. She was really great with getting us all the info we needed to know. She's in the States, so we didn't get to meet her in person, but she checked in on us several times by phone, and the housekeeper who let us in, Winsome, was really wonderful.

The apartment is located on the outskirts of Port Antonio, with route taxis (100$J) passing by every few minutes to get into town. A convenience store is a couple minutes walk from the house. It's very spacious- one large bedroom with a queen bed, stand-up fan, full bathroom (cold water only), and then another bed in the living room (ceiling fan), plenty of room for 4 to sleep. There's also a 1/2 bath, laundry room with washing machine, spacious kitchen with full-size fridge, gas oven, microwave, and living room, and a entry porch. The house had cable and wi-fi. No a/c, but we found the temperature very comfortable with the fans.

There were several great attractions nearby, including Reach Falls, rafting on the Rio Grande, and Blue Lagoon, as well as several beaches.
