About Nicoletta Bonafede
My name is Nickie, and I, along with my husband and children, are the new ownesr of the Buccaneer! After having been returning guests for some time, we decided to purchase the villa when Mary offered to sell. Mary and her staff have done a great job all of these years and we will build on her success, offering excellent service with the same friendly staff you've come to know and love. We have updated the villa to be able to offer you even more comfort and modern amenities.

Why Nicoletta Bonafede chose Treasure Beach
My family and I stayed at the Buccaneer and had a wonderful time. Actually, we have traveled to many parts of Jamaica over the past 18 years but our favorite destination is Treasure Beach, with its desolate beaches, rugged rocks, quaint fishing boats, abundant wildlife on land, air and sea, and the most warm and welcoming people. The Buccaneer Villa is the perfect place to stay at Treasure Beach! It is a beautiful and unique house with the beach at your doorstep and within walking distance to the local bars, restaurants and shops.
What makes this Villa unique
The Buccaneer Villa has the most spectacular views of both ocean and mountain. The rooftop patio is my favorite part of the house both during the day and during the night. It's a great place to practice yoga, sunbathe, share a drink, or stargaze. There is always a welcoming breeze on all of the patios and in the rooms throughout the house. There are many bedrooms and it is easy to have privacy. The outdoor shower is fun! The artwork built into the walls with colour and mosaic tile, the archways on the patios, the dome in the bedroom all add to the creative and whimsical feel of the house. The pool is large and refreshing midday, with views of the ocean while in the pool. The beach is at the bottom of the property and is great for running, snorkeling, collecting seashells and swimming. I really enjoy getting to know the fishermen and choosing from their fresh catch of the day when planning our meals. Also, we love exploring all of the surrounding beaches by walking on the sand and rock climbing along the water's edge for miles. (Remember to bring your water slippers). In short, you simply must come and experience Buccaneer Villa for yourself.

We had the best vacation - and it really was due to this wonderful property and staff. We felt like we had our own private beach because we rarely saw anyone else there; we spent hours star gazing on the roof top deck because with so little light pollution, the views at night were awesome; Nikki cooked delicious food for us and Michael made us two nice bonfires on the beach; and every day the biggest decisions we had to make was where we were going to sit and read and what drinks to take with us. The house is very artsy and has a magical energy to it. While I normally swim a lot on vacation, this was not my ideal swimming place (pool was a little too small for laps and the ocean required walking out further than I like to in order to get into water of any depth), but being able to enjoy the sound of the ocean and walking on the beach without seeing other people was definitely worth the trade off of not spending lots of time swimming. The only time we left the property was with Captain Neal (to go to the Pelican Bar - which was basically just another place to drink, listen to music, and be in shallow water; and he also took us to Lover's Leap even though we were just trying to find an ATM). Be aware that the ATM in town often does not work, so unless you want to spend time driving around, bring all the cash you need with you. I imagine that on our next visit, we may venture out a little more - but honestly, it felt so nice to get away from any responsibility, schedules, other people, etc. that just being able to sit still and relax in such a beautiful, comfortable place was perfect!
Amazing location, great staff, very relaxing
This villa in Treasure Beach/Billy’s Bay is a gem. Beautiful grounds, lots of places to chill, great ocean views and steps to the beach that is rarely used by others. Our host Nickie and her helper Station made us outstanding local dishes which I recommend taking advantage of. Michael the groundskeeper, keeps the lot in beautiful shape. He will set up a bonfire on the beach if requested. Local boat tour guide Captain Neal is a solid choice for water tours and fishing. I hope to return one day soon.
Thanks for the review Jim. We are so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Buccaneer Villa! You are most welcome to return any time!!
The property is set on a beautiful part of treasure beach. The views are incredible. The house is so well designed with windows exactly where they should be. The staff was friendly and helpful. Treasure beach is a gem and this place allows you to enjoy it the fullest. So far our best vacation ever!
Thank you Marta!
We cannot wait to have you back with us at Buccaneer Villa!!
Thank you so much Jan for having stayed with us at Buccaneer Villa! Wishing you and your family a magnificent new year!!
Great oceanside property with all the local perks!
The Villa made my first trip to Jamaica a very memorable one! A very comforting property that goes hand in hand with the lovely staff, both of which allow you to authentically enjoy the Treasure Beach area. There are plenty excursions to choose from in the area, from Appleton Estate, YS Falls, Lovers Leap, or Black River safari, the urge to explore the island is conquered by the great connection Nikki has forged with the locals. This is definitely a place I would visit again!
I am so happy that you stayed at Buccaneer Villa! Please come again soon!!
Beautiful, relaxing villa - amazing vacation!
The Buccaneer is a magical place. My family and I were captivated by the peaceful beach, the luscious gardens, the vegetable garden and the many fruit trees. We enjoyed scallion straight out of the garden and picked mangoes right from the tree. The food was so fresh and delicious! We spent nights on the breezy rooftop looking at night stars. Thank you so much to the staff and to Nickie for coordinating our trip. I hope to return soon.
Thank you Julia!
