Ocho Rios villa description

Cabarita Lookout is perched on a hill adjacent to Noel Coward's ''Firefly'' , fourteen miles east of Ocho Rios, with breathtaking views in all directions. Sea view verandas are spacious and perfect for outside dining and sunbathing. A sparkling turquoise pool invites visitors to cool off while enjoying the amazing views. Private beach access offers opportunities to snorkel and enjoy the wonders of the Caribbean. A van and driver are available from 7 am to 9 pm for Ocho Rios attractions like Dolphin Cove, Mystic Mountain, Dunn's River Falls, Fern Gully and the reggae-inspired nightlife. Our fabulous cook, Sharon, will prepare meals to your specifications. Take a trip down to Kokomo Beach - just 5 minutes away - and pick out your fish for dinner or take a boat ride to the fabulous Black Sands Beach and waterfall. Cabarita Lookout is the perfect spot for friends to gather or families to makes memories. We want our home to be your ''home away from home.''


On Arrival: Sparkling turquoise seas, the verdant northern coastline, dazzling sunrises, tropical flowers and lush vegetation welcome you to Cabarita Lookout. Relax by the sparkling pool, enjoy a massage by Racquel, our in-house masseuse, dine under the stars and step into a new way to vacation. Escape the hustle and bustle of super clubs and tourism and enjoy your new “home away from home” in Jamaica. Our villa was completed in 2009 on the historic Wentworth estate, rumored to be the illustrious Captain Henry Morgan’s historic lookout and sitting adjacent to playwright Noel Coward’s dramatic estate “Firefly.' Elegant yet cozy, we want our home to be your “home away from home.” On your arrival, you’ll be greeted by Cutty, your driver, butler and new “best friend.” Cutty has a wealth of knowledge about Jamaica and will be happy to share the lore of his land.On arrival you’ll be greeted with a rum punch by Sharon, both a fabulous cook and meticulous housekeeper. Breathtaking views await you.

Our Location: Cabarita Lookout is located in close proximity to James Bond Beach, Dunn’s River Falls, Dolphin Cove and Fern Gully. For the more adventuresome, try rafting the Rio Grande, exploring Cockpit Country or deep sea fishing with local fishermen. Or just kick back and relax around our new pool and be catered to by Cutty, Sharon and Racquel. Early mornings join Cutty as he goes down to the beach to pick up “the catch of the day” from local fishermen. Sharon’s cuisine ranges from local to international. You are free to design your own menu. For the more adventurous, take a boat to Black Sands Beach, hike to the waterfall and discover the secluded private beaches most visitors never see.

A Private Getaway: Cabarita Lookout comfortably sleeps three families or three couples with extra beds available. The van and driver are available at all times during your stay. Whether you are looking for an active family vacation loaded with activities for you and your kids or just a quiet private getaway with friends, Cabarita Lookout promises memories you’ll treasure forever.

                              Cabarita Lookout is located 14 miles east of Ocho Rios and about 4 miles west of Port Maria. It is adjacent to Noel Coward's famous ''Firefly'' Estate in St. Mary.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2009

                              About the owner: My husband and I have had a love affair with Jamaica for over 30 years. The first year we visited Jamaica we were taking a drive east of Ocho Rios when we rounded a corner and saw the most spectacular coastal view we'd ever seen. My husband said, 'Some day we'll have a home with this view.' Little did we know, 12 years later we would be volunteering in orphanages in just this location! After 9 years of volunteer work, we found the perfect property with the view we had fallen in love with 20 years earlier. We purchased the land and built Cabarita Lookout! While we still bring mission teams to stay at Cabarita Lookout, we have also opened the villa up to guest rentals.

                              Why the Owner Chose Ocho Rios:
                              We actually purchased land in a location we love and built our own villa. As described earlier, we believe Cabarita Lookout has the most spectacular view in all of Jamaica, a land and people we love. 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, night life 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, papapa 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.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              The benefits of staying at Cabarita Lookout are many. Sharon, our cook, creates fabulous meals out of fresh fruits and vegetables and local fish. We often take a boat from Paggee Beach, our local beach, and set out for pristine unpopulated beaches; my favorite is Black Sands Beach where we hike to an amazing waterfall and fresh water pool. 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 night life. 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 sun rise over Jamaica. I like to bicycle in the hills surrounding Cabarita Lookout. I love to swim at Moxon's Beach Club and be waited on hand and foot by their amazing staff. But most of all I just love being at Cabarita Lookout, 'far away from the maddening crowds,' and looking out on my little piece of paradise.
