After spending a week at Great Escape with our 3 children (4 yr olds and a 18 month old), we can't wait to go back. The travel was not easy with our crew, some long flights then a long car ride (~2 hours from Montego Bay), but once there, it is pardise. The weather was perfect, warm and sunny every day. The location is remote, just beach/pool/walks down the road to see the horses and goats/quick stop into the Cove boutique hotel for a drink. If you like getting away from it all and don't need a lot of stimulus beyond a good book and a nap, you found it. The staff is great, very helpful and accomodating - Ann's meals were very good, hearty local foods and she was very flexible with us. Rambo was very helpful, even bringing sea shells for the kids to take back! The pool and gardens are well taken care of the house is clean. Mark was easy to work with and responsive to questions as I was a little nervous going off the beaten path with the family in tow. If you want a luxurious location with many activities, this is not the place for you, if you want a quiet beach house with a family atmosphere, no distraction - make your reservation! We also visited the town of treasure beach which is very chill - very nice people and not at all intimidating. The beach was nice and had good food at Jack Sprats. YS Falls were nice as well, go early as Ann and Rambo recommend and beat the tourists, kids had fun in the pools there and it was good to get out and see some more of Jamaica. I would definately recommend this location for families, couples, or a group. My wife can't wait to get back on a girls trip.

Great place! Great staff! My wife and 28 year old son and myself spent a week here, Very nice place. We had the meal package and were able to ask the night before for the next days meal. Anna is a great cook. Rambo(the driver) picked us up at Montego Bay airport then took us to Negril after our week stay for our second week. He took us anywhere we wanted to go. He and my son went to the Bob Marley site. He took us to the bars and waited until we were finished. Anyhing we needed they heiped us. Great swimming pool and beach house. The place is well worth the money.

Really cool place, the pictures don't do it justice. Isolated without being remote, with plenty of space to relax. Helpful staff as well. Had a great time.

Lovely house in very quiet part of Jamaica
Lovely house in very quiet part of Jamaica
This is a great house in a beautiful area of Jamaica. We are used to the all-inclusive resorts, so this was very different. No nightlife or noise.. just long walks each morning down the lovely country road (with plenty of goats), days spent at the 'clubhouse' down by the private beach and lots of swimming. The beach is pretty amazing.. no one around except the odd snorkeler or boat passing by. The garden beside the clubhouse is yet another peaceful and beautiful place to relax. The bedroom and bathroom down at the clubhouse make it extra special and comfortable. This house is maintained daily by an excellent staff. Ann, the cook and house manager, was so sweet to cook some specific things we asked for and everything was presented nicely and very delicious.. real, hearty food, nothing fancy. Rambo is an amazing driver, very helpful and was happy to answer questions as we drove around. We learned a lot about Jamaica from him. The house, grounds and pool were kept very clean. Housekeeper and gardener come each morning. The house itself is not extravagant, but the bedrooms and living room are very comfortable and cozy. The outside deck is probably the best part of the house. We really enjoyed swimming in the pool at night.. just such a treat to have a private pool! It was very easy to book the house and the owner is very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this house to families (seems like it would be great for kids), couples and anyone looking for a quiet getaway. The staff is very warm and welcoming and they provide a friendly atmosphere. Getting to town is a hike.. an hour plus on foot (have Rambo drive you if you do not like a long walk). The famous Jake’s is fun for a drink, and the town of Treasure Beach is nice for an afternoon jaunt.

Great Escape was a private paradise. The owners were wonderful and had everything arranged. The house is beautiful and the location is so private and special. The extra beach house and private beach is a huge plus. And if you don't feel like the salt water there is the pool attached to the house! My only suggestion is to be sure to stock up on all the food and liquor you will want for the week when you go shopping after you land in Jamaica. Once you are at the house your options are very slim to get anything else you may need. Just do that and you will have a perfect vacation! We recommend this place with high stars for comfort, beauty and privacy!

The place to go if you want to relax/recharge!
The place to go if you want to relax/recharge!
This is truly a dream spot and the place to go if you are looking to relax and experience Jamaica without all of the tourists. It's a very quiet, peaceful location and has everything you need to make a memorable vacation. The house isn't fancy but is definitely comfortable w/ 2 beds and 2 baths and the separate beach bedroom allows for complete privacy (but location of beach bathroom means several stairsteps to navigate in the night). The best part of the experience is the TLC provided by Ann and Rambo. ..you don't have to do a thing! Ann makes 3 incredible meals each day and is happy to accommodate any dietary challenges...she'll even let you go to the market with her if you want! Rambo provides transportation to/from airport and will drive you to any other adventures you wish to pursue. They are great to talk with and learn about the true Jamaica. If the beautiful weather, beach, and pool don't hold your attention, the house is furnished with state of the art electronics and filled with DVDs. If you can give up Ann's cooking one night, you should go to Jack Spratt's for island pizza..so good! We've made trips to Black River and Pelican Bar with Joseph and to the Falls...both were fun and I'd recommend. We're most happy though just to hang around and relax and watch the 4 or 5 cars go by or the goats walk down the road. If you're looking for lots of activity/shopping/nightlife, then I wouldn't recommend this palce. It's the place to go if you're looking to relax and get away from it all. Working with Mark and Carolyn to get your vacation booked is a breeze..they're very helpful and make every attempt to grant your wishes. We've recommended this place to other friends who've visited and they've all been happy with their experience. We love this place so much, we've booked it 7 times and plan to make it our yearly home away from home (if only for one week at a time!)

Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: I first traveled to Jamaica when I was 19 and fell in love with the Island.I proposed to my wife Carolyn at the top of Dunn River Falls and we were married in 1991.We continued to travel back to the Island and upon a day trip came across the Treasure Beach area and shortly thereafter started our search for a property in the area.We purchased the property in 1998 and spend as much time as we can at Great Escape. Both of our boys have been to Jamaica since infants and have come to love Jamaica as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Treasure Beach:
We stayed at a nearby property during our search and the opportunity arose to buy a house already built along with a ocean front parcel and additional acreage.We refurbished the house,added a pool and built the 'clubhouse' on the ocean.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We love the location being a few miles out of Treasure Beach and the quiet surroundings. Gorgeous sunsets,star gazing at night and a staff that is off the charts!
