About Paolo Del Grande

I'm an Italian who came to Treasure Beach with the intension of having a quiet week long vacation. I fell in love with the area and the people here are just amazing so I made this place my home

Paolo Del Grande purchased this villa in 2001

Why Paolo Del Grande chose Jamaica South Coast

It is located in a very quiet and more private part of Treasure Beach

What makes this villa unique

No harassments,just beautiful sunsets and the warm blue sea

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Beautifully quaint accommodations for an ideal stay at Treasure Beach.”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2014



I cannot say enough wonderful things about Villa Optima. The house, the rooms, the location, the "staff" who welcomed us and became new friends, and the FOOD! We were in Treasure Beach for a wedding and I truly believe we had the best setup of all the other guests that had come in for the event. We reserved the three bedroom villa with two other couples whom we'd never met but were friends of the bride and groom, and the house is setup perfectly. We all had private bathrooms, easy access to our individual suites, and a shared living area, kitchen, and large porch. We had 2 meals prepared for us every day by Monica and Trudy - and we were blown away with every meal. These ladies could seriously open their own catering service and blow other restaurants out of the water :) The location of Villa Optima was incredibly convenient. You are literally across the street from a small beach cove and within easy walking distance to the area's restaurants. And the care these people took with us during our stay is unmatched. The owner, Paolo, even went out of his way to return some sunglasses my husband left - he shipped them back to the US without being asked! If we ever have an opportunity to travel back to Treasure Beach, there is no question about where we would stay. Our love to all at Villa Optima!

Myself and family just had one of the most incredible vacation experience.

Experience a piece of authentic, rustic, old world Jamaica.

The house is in a great location. Not far from Jakes.

Right across from the beach and beautiful cove so the view can be enjoyed also of the house from the beach.

House is quaint ,and practical.The garden and verandah gives you the ideal indoor out door living.

Pool is set back from the house great if young children are vacationing .

The locals are friendly and warm beautiful people.

PS. If you are only comfortable in a resort setting this may not be ideal.

Also it is a approximately 2.5hrs drive from Montego bay. Seriously consider having a native driver so you can sit back and relax.

The owners are very easy to work with. Also they are next door neighbors.

Hence that also factors into the safety aspect of renting.

Villa Optima great choice.

Good bang for your money.

Peaceful retreat with pampering

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 4 adults and 2 children had a lovely, relaxing week between Christmas and New Year's at Villa Optima. The house was very comfortable, and we loved the shady veranda and pool. The beach is beautiful and convenient (but use caution when the wind and waves are up). Best part: delicious meals cooked and served with humor and grace by Monica and Trudy, who were helpful in so many ways. We truly felt pampered and indulged.

A real gem in Treasure Beach - Beachfront living at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from the most wonderful vacation at Villa Optima. From the moment we arrived we knew we had made a fantastic choice. The villa is well laid out, nicely appointed with a beautiful porch with dining area where we ate all the delicious breakfasts and dinners prepared by Monica. She thoroughly impressed my son with her creative vegan meals. Monica was also very helpful in arranging excursions and even a bonfire on the beach (not to be missed). It is a quiet area, safe and we swam every night in the ocean. Be sure to go to YS Falls, Bamboo Ave., Appleton Rum Factory tour, Black River to see the crocodiles and if you like snorkelling Sunny Island is very good and the Pelican Bar is a must see (with dolphin spotting on the way). We travelled with our son (22), daughter (26) and her fiancee and we all agreed it was the best vacation ever! It is a different experience altogether from the usual all inclusive resorts we have been to many times before. The region is a farming and fishing community and the locals and other tourists were friendly and helpful. You can walk to Jack Spratts if you want to go out for dinner, their pizza is very good. We are so very glad we got to see the real Jamaica! Thank you to owners Paolo and Tia for providing such a wonderful place. We will be back!!!

Very nice stay

  • 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!

Treasure Beach-the quiet side of paradise

  • 4 of 5

The owner Paola was very accommodating, even going so far to bake delicious bites for our family several times during our stay. The house was perfect for our use with 3 full bedrooms, with air-conditioning and private bathrooms, all across from the beach. Many private beaches were within easy walking distance for those seeking variety. There was none of the pressured sales solicitations encountered at the usual tourist destinations. I would recommend this location to anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of Negril, Ocho Rios, Montego Bay and experience real Jamaica.

Perfect location for a week end at the sea

  • 5 of 5

It is the 2nd time we are going to Villa Optima and we love it.

The location is incredible, you only have to cross the road and you are at the cove, as we have small children this is precious to us as we only take towels / sand toys and whenever they are tired / hungry / need to be changed, we just go back to the house in a minute.

The house is very convenient, two double bedrooms and one room with two large single beds, a living room / kitchen with couches, wifi. There is a bathtub in one of the bathroom (3 bathrooms in total), and both beach and house towels are provided in everyone of them, they are large and of nice quality. Fridge is spacious, with separate freezer, oven works great (gas oven with burners). Monica the cook and helper is very good, helpful, understands your needs and adapts very well. She baby sitted our kids twice so that we could go and have dinner at Jakes and it went really well. Paolo and Tia Maria the owners are very helpful, very welcoming, they will surprise you with homemade bread which is a delight. They can shop your shopping list ahead so that the fridge / pantry is full when you come in (I prefer to do my own shopping to be sure to get everything I want, e.g. if we want to have strawberries, not always easy to find everywhere / anywhen, and for baby food I like to bring my food processor to be on the safe side but the house works great for families in my opinion).

There is a very nice garden with a trampoline, some swings, a pond with turtles, koi fishes, and some frogs sometimes (my big boy was over the moon to observe a real frog for the first time).

There is also a patio area around the house to get lunch or dinner very agreeable because it gets air and it's shady, as the wheather can be really hot in treasure beach.

Do take a lot of mosquito repellent / coils / nets as there are mosquitoes, but once you have everything to fight back it's quite manageable. There is AC in every room, not in the living room which can get a bit hot but you'd rather be at the beach / in the patio / garden and at night it's cooler. Stargazing on the trampoline is amazing, the sky is very clear.

We love the place and got many fond memories there as a family (went to Black River Crocodile Safari tour, Floyds Pelican bar on Parottee, Callaloo shop close to Jakes where you find the cutest little girls' dresses ever, for attractions nearby).
