If you are looking for a real island experience and want to stay in a safe, and remarkably beautiful place, then come and stay at Tansobak. The private Tansobak Cottage is located away from the hustle and bustle and sits on the coral edge of the glistening blue waters of Jamaica’s south coast. Our cottage is located in Little Bay which is a small and friendly fishing village and bordered by two sandy beach bays. The property, a lush tropical acre includes bananas, grapefruit, oranges, tangerine, star fruit, key lime trees and exotic flowers.
You will enjoy our hammocks in the sea view almond trees and there are loungers on the sea front for sunning and relaxing. Tansobak has a unique saltwater pool built into natural coral boulders providing a perfect private spot for a quick cooling dip. At the sea edge of the patio is an ocean ladder for access to swimming and/or for snorkeling the reef. Watching the sea birds, fish rising and fishermen pulling lobster pots is always a great daily activity off of the edge.
Masks and snorkels for viewing the treasures of the sea and reef and a few mountain bikes are available for exploring the area. Micro-fridge is provided on each floor for you to stock with your beverage of choice. Private baths are in each room with hot water showers.
The main floor 'Doctor-bird Suite' has one bedroom with double bed, one bathroom with shower, a living room with a double futon convertible couch, wet bar with microwave and fridge. This is our only room that has air-conditioning. This unique suite has a first floor veranda facing the sea. The suite features handcrafted cedar carved closets and cabinetry and hand made wicker chairs.
The smaller upstairs 'Sunset Room' has a double bed. The larger upstairs 'Sunrise Room' has a king bed, microwave and fridge - Both second floor rooms have private baths with hot showers, large screened windows, ceiling fans and verandas to enjoy the wonderful sea views.
