Treasure Beach villa description

Created as a testament to an enduring love affair, The Buccaneer artfully melds Moorish Spain, Morocco, Crete, South Africa, Taos - and Jamaica - into one romantic, serene, spectacular, fantasy, beach villa, designed by Sally Henzell.

The setting is dramatic: on the hillside, above the fishers' beach in quiet Billy's Bay with 3/4s of a mile of untrammeled beach also reachable by gated pathways. Sweeping staircases, inside and out. Inspiring views. And always, the sound of the waves... Gaze out to sea from the oceanfront pool, terraces, and deep shaded portico. Up on the roof a spacious 'sun and moon lounge' invites sunbathing, dining, sunset and stargazing, or just curling up with a good book.

Opening onto the Oceanside terrace: a huge living room with scrolling hand-wrought ironwork doors, deep color-saturated walls that are inlaid with glass, plus comfy, inviting oversize furniture designed specifically for the house. Full music - VCR - TV systems, Phone.
Four artful, air conditioned bedrooms and four tiled bathrooms.
The kitchen is fitted out with all modern conveniences.
Discover the simple pleasures of life in Treasure Beach, Jamaica. The Buccaneer Villa is perfect for travelers seeking a destination spot on Jamaica's unspoiled southern coast. The villa is built overlooking the beach at Billy's Bay and has private access directly onto the beach where you will find hammocks awaiting you in the shade of our sea grape trees, this is the cold weather escape that you've been dreaming about. Your relentlessly sunny get-away awaits you.

You can experience the best of both worlds in Treasure Beach... Breathtaking ocean and mountain views. Marvel at the 360-degree view overlooking sparkling, turquoise waters. Soothing ocean breezes will lull you to sleep in our hammock by the mangroves, unwind in the sanctuary of the Buccaneer Villa, decorated with an exotic Bohemian flair. Best of all, live-out cook, housekeeper, caretakers Suzie, Cebert, and Garfield provide a warm welcome with a knack for almost invisible pampering.

*** Testimonials ***
'Many thanks for our wonderful vacation at The Buccaneer. We loved every moment of it and the best part was your wonderful staff. Suzie was delightful and could not have taken better care of us and most important of all, our baby. Again, many thanks for helping make Treasure Beach our favorite vacation spot.' Sincerely,
Celia Boddington and Paul Bledsoe

'There are just no words to describe what a glorious, transforming trip this was for Parks and I. Our lives are forever changed. I cannot thank you enough for the best vacation we've ever had. We arrived as two stressed out, uptight complainers and turned into potential Jamaicans. To us, life in Jamaica is about beauty, tranquillity, happiness, love, patience, tolerance, health, living life, appreciation, and gratitude. Jamaica truly does capture your soul. P.S. We love Suzie, Garfield, Cebert and everyone!!!' Sincerely, Parks and Cathy Talley

'I do not have words that are worthy of delineating the priceless time we had at The Buccaneer. To be enveloped by the never-ending vistas of the glorious sea and the heavens, the soothing waters and sea breeze, sweet Suzie's scrumptious food (a labor of love) is to be blessed and healed. My favorite moments were those spent in solitary strolls on the deserted beach as well as my meditation and yoga at sunrise and sunset, on the roof. I have been fortunate to have traveled to some of the world's most spectacular places - but there was something so incredibly magical about our experience at The Buccaneer.' - May 2003 guests from New York City

                    Three couples stayed at this villa for nine nights and absolutely loved every minute of it! Without question, we fell in love with Suzie, Nikki, Delroy, families and friends. They treated us so well, and the traditional Jamaican meals were absolutely amazing! AMAZING! The location and layout of the villa is superb with stunning sea views from each bedroom. The villa is spacious and features endless spots to relax and view the sun rise and set. We were blessed with perfect weather which made for endless hours enjoying the beautiful pool and beach. Suzie will arrange any excursions you wish. We had a blast with Captain Dennis on a trip to a deserted beach for shells and the infamous Pelican Bar. Given the distance from the town center, Jack Spratt's, Jack's, and our new friends at the Fisherman's Bar, during daylight we usually walked, and Suzie arranged rides for our return at our request. We found the people we met to be warm and friendly, and we always felt totally safe. We were welcomed with open arms at a local church. We ran and walked most mornings into the opposite direction from town, and had the road to ourselves. Suzie also arranged for a massage therapist to come to the villa. Overall, our vacation was so special and indeed memorable because of the new friends we will treasure always. We looked forward to being with the 'staff' each day! The owner, Mary, was also very helpful and a joy to work with. Thanks again to all! We love you!

                    A beautiful home, at a beautiful location, in a beautiful community. Our family's first trip to Jamaica was a dream week, which was made relaxing, easy and carefree by Mary, Suzie and all the staff. Wonderful weather, amazing food, quiet and peaceful. We had our two kids (6 & 9) and they loved everything about the home, the food and the friends they made. Buccaneer is a great place to hole up and hang out, but Treasure Beach has great vibes as well. And a nice drive into Black River and YS Falls is great way to spend the day. We will definitely return, not just to enjoy the home and weather, but to see the wonderful people we met.

                    Every now and then you arrive at a place that is all you have dreamed of and more... welcome to the Buccaneer. It is even more beautiful than the pictures. From the moment you arrive and are privately transported to the house, there isn't a thing in the world to worry about. My husband and our three small children can't wait to come back. Every detail is taken care of by Suzie and Wayne cooked some of the most delicious meals. It was so fabulous that we didn't even leave the house once except for our daily walks on the beach. The days start off by waking up to the sounds of the crashing waves and the smell of something delicious cooking downstairs. We spent so much time in the hammocks by the pool overlooking the ocean and being rocked by the constant breeze. The beach is beautiful and we rarely saw anyone else aside from a few goats eating grass on the nearby hills. Each evening we would watch the sunset from the rooftop terrace and later return to see who could spot the most shooting stars. It is simply an off the beaten track paradise. The owner was a pleasure to work with and made sure that everything was perfect. You must experience this place for yourself!

                    My husband and I just spent a week at this amazing villa in Treasure Beach. It was everything and more that we had hoped for our honeymoon. The staff was so warm and welcoming and they were there for us anytime we needed anything: food, a ride, clean sheets etc. The food was outstanding! The house is an artists dream- If you want to have creative juices flowing this is the place to be. The pool and beach are quiet and picturesque. Both of us left a piece of our heart in Jamaica and we will DEF be back with friends!

                    It was wonderful to wake up every morning to the sounds of the ocean surf and we never tired of the paradise view. It was our first trip to Jamaica and we enjoyed the people, the beauty and the weather. The neighborhood was safe, the home was spacious, clean and comfortable. Suzie, Rema and Wayne were so helpful and cooked up the best meals (try out the grape nut ice cream) The owner was very helpful in arranging all the details. Thank you for a most relaxing vacation.

                    I can't think of a more wonderful vacation than the one recently spent at the Buccaneer. I was there with three friends and from the moment we got there, we were pampered. Our luggage was whisked away by a waiting staff while we wandered around, awestruck by this treaure we had found. It's hard to describe how perfect the place is. Although the pictures are accurate, they can not reflect the deliciousness of the decor, the scenery or the staff. Every need has been considered and I would highly recommend it for an unforgettable experience. I will be back!!!

                    I came with 6 of my college friends to kick-off the summer, and celebrate graduating college. Suzie and Wayne (the cooks) were so cool and took great care of us. We spent one day going to Y.S. falls, which was soooo much fun, and we spent a day at Margaritaville in Negril, as well, both of which days Kevin (the driver) drove us. All our days there were fun, but also relaxing. We would sleep in and wake up to a delightful fresh cooked meal. We even went out to breakfast at the Treasurebeach hotel one morning, which was also great. In the evenings we often went to a few local bars including Kevin's bar named Smurfs. On the nights we went out locally, we walked to the near by bars with the locals, having great fun under the moonlight and stars of Billy's Bay. On a few nights Kevin drove us to further out parties or bars, which were all quite fun and exciting. The week was a blast of exploration, relaxation, and everything wonderful. I'm hoping to go again soon.

                    I spent a week there for my honeymoon and my husband and I wish we had spent two. It was by far the most relaxing week we've had in quite some time. We spent our days in the sun by the pool, and at a few local bars. We woke up every morning to Suzie's (the cook) wonderful cooking for breakfast. And we walked around the small town of Billy's Bay meeting new people. Even at night, we would walk under the stars with a few locals. The staff was great, the food was great, and the place was gorgeous. It was a dream vacation for our honeymoon.
