About Anna Kissoonlal
My husband and I have a love affair between Jamaica, Germany and the United States. Rohan originally hailing from Ocho Rios and myself from Germany, we love the opportunity to travel with our children to visit family and friends when possible. We are a fun loving, family comes first kind of couple and enjoy the quietness of just relaxing and getting away from it all. We ventured into this home by accident, but we believe that all things happen for a reason. We are excited to be able to truly call Jamaica our second home and to be able to share our beautiful home and view with all who wish to come to see.
Anna Kissoonlal purchased this Villa in 2018
Why Anna Kissoonlal chose Port Maria
My husband and I had been looking for a second home in Jamaica for several years. Being that my husband is originally from Ocho Rios, we wanted to find a home close to his hometown to be close to the family and friends. On the way to the home up the mountain, it was nice to see the locals in the area waiving at you as you drove by. Once we pulled up to the home, the view what just breathtaking and only got better as you climbed the stairs up to the house. As described earlier, we believe Cabarita Lookout has one of the most spectacular views in all of Jamaica. Cabarita Lookout is located about 30 minutes from Ocho Rios in a quiet community atop a hill, sitting adjacent to Noel Coward's estate 'Firefly.' We are close enough to Ocho Rios to enjoy its fine dining, nightlife and beaches, yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet our hilltop perch affords. Cabarita Lookout views the Caribbean and northern coastline, yet we are surrounded with lush vegetation including banana, mango, lime, papaya, and ackee trees. Our caretakers, Cutty and Sharon, have also planted a vegetable garden which provides fresh lettuce, tomatoes, squash, and beans. Cutty goes to the sea for fresh fish and lobster and Sharon adds the fresh fruits and vegetables from our land. Cabarita Lookout is a unique property that provides the perfect getaway for the more adventuresome or for those who just want to kick back around the pool and take in a view they'll remember forever.
What makes this Villa unique
The benefits of staying at Cabarita Lookout are many. Sharon, our cook, creates fabulous meals out of fresh fruits and vegetables and local fish and chicken. We love rafting on the White River, watching turtle hatches, snorkeling in private reefs and climbing the many waterfalls. We have our favorite lunch spots - Bamboo Blu and Christopher's at Hermosa Cove! Each morning I love to swim laps in our amazing 'pool with a view.' I love to dine at Toscanini's Restaurant in Ocho Rios and enjoy the nightlife. I love to sit on the master suite veranda with a glass of wine and melt into the view. I love to have breakfast on the veranda and watch the sunrise over Jamaica. But most of all I just love being at Cabarita Lookout, 'far away from the maddening crowds,' and looking out on our little piece of paradise. The van and driver are available 7 am to 9 pm during your stay. Complimentary pick and drop off from Montego Bay Airport are included in the price of your stay. Additional trips to the airport are at an additional cost or shuttle reservations can be made for you (costs paid to the company). Your home away from home stay vacations starts here. we look forward to having you!

We stayed at Cabrita Lookout for spring break in the last month of March with 3 adults and 3 kids (9,9,5) and had a great time.
Now a little warning this property is about 1.5-2 hours from Montego Bay and about 45 minutes from Ocho Rios but with Cutty doing the driving and when you see the view it is well worth it. The Villa is located in the mountains so going up the mountain you are really taking off the beaten path but once you arrive at the property it is just breath taking.
During your stay you will not be seeing any other tourists unless you venture to Ocho Rios, and we were really able to experience the local Jamaican life.
Now the week with Cutty was absolutely fantastic. He kept a close eye on all three kids as well as helping us with anything we needed. He knows everybody and really makes sure your stay is perfect. He can also take you to any excursion, so you do not need to pay for a "tour", just let him know and he will take care of you. He let my kids pick fresh eggs from his hens each morning and after spending a little time with him, he is just a fantastic person.
Sharon and Ann Marie we great in the house. Sharon was able to cook breakfasts and dinners and they were fantastic. Sharon also helped us shop for groceries during our stay and everyone in our party loved her cooking.
The pool at the house was used each day and the kids loved it. The house itself was in great condition and really is kept in great shape. The internet was down all week after a line got cut down the mountain so that was a bummer but we lived without it and did not skip a beat.
Overall my family loved out time and Jamaica and we would rent this villa again!
The view of the property is impeccable!
Honestly, the property felt like another home away from home because it was comfortable to stay at. Cutty and Mrs. Sharon were nice and sweet. The breeze was beautiful, and I eventually started to love listening to the roosters, goats, an dogs at night. It is both a romantic and family vacation spot all in one. I can’t wait to go back.
Thank you, Ashley, for your wonderful review. We look forward to hosting you and some of your friends again soon. Thanks again for choosing our villa as your stay destination in Jamaica. -Anna
Cutty the driver IS THE LOOKOUT. If it wasn't for him and his kindness, I don't know how the trip would of gone. Cutty gave 200% to us. The food was great.
Got to be the most enjoyable place I have ever stayed. Wake up every morning at 5:30 with my phone/camera to see the next best sunrise ever!
Thank you for your wonderful review of our home. We look forward to having to stay again soon.
Absolutely Superb Vacation Rental
Our recent stat at Cabarita Lookout Villa Jamaica was the best vacation my family and I have ever taken. We enjoyed the complimentary pick up from the Montego Bay airport and the drive and villa manager Cutty was great during our stay. The rooms in the home were most comfortable, super clean, nicely decorated and covered all our needs and more. The villa was a dream to stay at and the staffed cook Sharon prepared some of the best foods we have ever eaten. For a quite vacation spot, this was a perfect rental. We will most definitely stay here again.
Thank you, Tammy, for your wonderful review. We look forward to hosting you and your family again soon. Please check back to the site to see all the new and exciting updates we are doing to the villa in 2019.
Thanks again for choosing our villa as your stay destination in Jamaica.
Our family of 8 stayed in this wonderful home in February. No matter what window you looked out or what time of day the views were spectacular. The pool was awesome too. The home was clean and spacious and fully equipped with whatever you may need. Our cooks/housekeepers Sharon and Ann Marie were very nice and accommodating to all of ou needs. We even had massages on the veranda. The gardener Devon worked hard to maintain the beautiful property, which was gorgeous. We appreciated the service and knowledge that Cutty, the driver brought to our stay. Having him welcoming us at the airport was great. He took us to various beaches and shopping all week. The ride to the house was a hike so we stopped for a bite to eat which Pam, the owner recommended. Pam was so helpful and responsive with all our questions ahead of time. We would stay at this home again.
Thank you Lily for the wonderful review! I'm so happy you and your family enjoyed the villa and the staff! Our staff is like family to us, so this means a lot. We hope you return in the future!
