A Host of Attractions
Chrisanns Beach Resort is two hours away from Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay. The resort is just steps away from some of Ocho Rios's finest attractions.

Across the street are Glenns Restaurant, Tower Jerk Center, Toscanini's Italian Restaurant, and Harmony Hall Gallery, an exquisite old mansion where you can view art by Jamaica's finest artists. Harmony Hall is also a Jamaican National Heritage site.

If you want to cook for yourself, there's a well stocked grocery store right across the street, and a weekly farmers' market just down the road with a wide variety of fresh Jamaican fruits and vegetables.

In Ocho Rios, you can shop for souvenirs, duty free jewelry and other goodies at the Island Village plaza. Relax at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville Restaurant and Lounge, right on the beach at Island Village.

You can visit museums such as the Reggae Museum in Island Village, and the world-famous Dunns River Falls and Park.

Ocho Rios has many restaurants: Italian, Chinese, international, Indian, and Jamaican. Every June, the town hosts a local jazz festival that brings together jazz musicians from across the island.

You'll find other attractions in Ocho Rios like Dolphin Cove, where you can swim with these friendly creatures, and Mystic Mountain for an awesome eco-tourism experience, complete with canopy bridges and bungee rides above a tropical rain forest.

Tour a working citrus plantation at the Prospect Plantation Tour, or go kayaking down the White River, or go mountain biking on trails nearby.

Ocho Rios is also one of the few resorts where you can visit authentic Jamaican towns, such as St. Ann's Bay, the birthplace of Marcus Garvey and Brown's Town, a major market town on the North Coast.

Just 45 minutes from Chrisanns is the birthplace of Bob Marley: Nine Miles, where you can visit his mausoleum and museum.

St. Ann's Bay is just beside New Seville, the site where Christopher Columbus first landed in Jamaica. Here you can visit a historical museum and ruins of early Spanish settlements dating back to the 15th century.

Chrisanns Beach Resort is just an hour's drive away from Firefly, the home of Sir Noel Coward. Firefly is now a museum, and another National Heritage site. Forty five minutes away is Golden Eye, the former home of Ian Fleming, where he wrote his James Bond novels.

If you feel adventurous, you can rent a car right across the street. Rent a car and drive to Portland and visit Navy Island, where Errol Flynn once lived. There' are tour brochures and car rental information in the reception area.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: I was born and grew up in Jamaica, just 30 miles away from Chrisanns Beach Resort. My childhood memories are filled with visits to the beaches on Jamaica's north coast. I've been living in New York City since 1998, working in public relations in the non profit sector, and more recently, as a college instructor. I also make jewelry and quilts, and sell these at craft fairs around New York City. I visit Jamaica several times each year and spend part of my vacations at the beach while I'm there. My condo at no. 10 Chrisanns Beach Resort is now my creative retreat from the hustle and bustle of New York City. I plan to spend more time painting the breathtaking scenery around the north coast, using this beachfront condo as my base.

                          Why the Owner Chose Ocho Rios:
                          This location is very convenient for many activities. Chrisanns Beach Resort is an ideal haven if you want to get away from the big resort hotels, and enjoy the calmer, more mellow side of Jamaica. I love the beach, and Chrisanns has its own private cove where you can swim in the sheltered area, or venture further out to the deeper sections of the sea. The countryside sorrounding Chrisanns Beach Resort has some of the most breathtakingly beautiful vegetation, beaches and rivers on Jamaica's north coast. Chrisanns Beach Resort is also near to many atttractions, and is an easy 45 minute ride from the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, along a newly built highway that has awesome views of the Caribbean sea.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          The sunsets from the beach are to die for. The breezes that you'll experience if you're on the beach or out in the gazebo overlooking the sea are calming and refreshing. When you're sitting on the balcony of no. 10, you can see the sea, and hear the waves all day and night. Having a housekeeper who can cook for you is a real benefit, as she can prepare Jamaican dishes if you wish. Glenn's Restaurant, just across the street, offers Jamaican and international dishes. There's a Glenn's menu at the front desk, so you can call them and ask them to deliver right to your condo. Your condo has access to a wide variety of cable channels, and you can also borrow a range of current DVDs from the resort manager's office, at no charge, and watch these on a DVD in the condo. It's like having Netflix without the fees. If you can't do without the Internet, no worries, as the complex has both wireless and high speed plug in Web access.
