Oracabessa villa description

On Jamaica's rugged North Coast, tucked away between Noel Coward's Firefly and Ian Fleming's Goldeneye you will find our 3.5 acre wooded, gated property that affords quiet and privacy. We are 20 minutes east of Ocho Rios, just outside a quaint little town called Oracabessa. The villa itself sits on a bluff overlooking the Carribean Sea with no close neighbors. We have the novelty of a blow hole at the sea's edge which sprays into the air filling a natural sea pond and series of pools which makes a delightful play area for adults and children alike. There are also steps carved into the rocks for access to the sea for diving and snorkeling. The beautiful grounds are landscaped with many private paths and hideaways, and include a large freshwater pool. The house has three air conditioned bedrooms each with its own newly remodeled ensuite bathroom, and can accommodate up to ten guests. All bedrooms open onto the verandah with sea views in front, and open to the garden with private balconies in back. The living room/dining room is a large great room area with a wrap-around verandah. Because the villa sits on a bluff we get tradewinds year around, and find that the climate is more temperate even in the summer than where we live, which is Florida. The kitchen is modern and is at your disposal for drinks and snacks. We also have a full time, live-in staff that is ready to meet you and help you with anything you might need from planning your activities, to doing your laundry for you, and of course shopping and cooking, all included in the cost. The attractions of Ocho Rios and the beaches Port Maria and Oracabessa are close by. The villa is two hours by car or bus from the airport in Montego Bay and we will be happy to arrange transportation for you.
We are happy to announce the opening of The Cottage at Blow Hole. The construction has taken 'somewhat' longer than expected but the results are stunning. The cottage will be rented only as overflow along with the main villa and can sleep up to six comfortably. The exception being when the owners (us) are in residence. The cottage blends perfectly with its surrounding and in no way detracts from the privacy or views of the main villa. We will let the photos speak for themselves.
Welcome to the new standard in comfort, privacy and service, welcome to Blow Hole Villa and The Cottage at Blow Hole.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: My husband and I bought this property with the intention of using it as a vacation/retirement home; vacation now, retirement sometime in the future. We have done extensive renovation of the property within the last 7 years and are excited to have others to enjoy the villa as much as we do. The Cottage we have been planning for retirement is now completed and ready for occupancy, by special request. Call us for details.

                          Why the Owner Chose Oracabessa:
                          This location is close to Ocho Rios (about 20 min by car) so that we can run into town for shopping or dining or for our guests to go to the many attractions(such as Dunn's River Falls), but we are far enough into the country to enjoy the quiet country lifestyle. Oracabessa is a very small village a couple of min. away that fills all of our daily needs, and the Boscobel Airport is 10 min. away for people who prefer not to drive from Montego Bay.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          The villa is situated on the cliffs overlooking the Caribbean Sea...nothing between us and Cuba but water. We have the unique feature of a seapond and a blow hole that are accessible by a series of steps down to the sea. Depending on the weather the blow hole varies its show. We spend a lot of time on the veranda just enjoying the view. Of course there is excellent diving and snorkeling also, as the steps drop off to about 30' of crystal clear turquoise water. The seapond is great for little ones as it is only about 3 feet deep and entirely enclosed.
