Oracabessa house description

Jamaica unplugged! The owner, reggae musician Jamaica Papa Curvin, has lived in Germany for 40 years and just recently discovered his favourite property on the island. Now he lives in Jamaica and is looking forward to hosting guests with a genuine interest in his home country.
The newly build cottage in the traditional Jamaican style is located on a vast property with stunning sea views and tropical garden, just above a rocky cliff.
From your front porch or laying in the hammock you will enjoy the beautiful view of the sea, or discover exotic birds and butterflies in the lush vegetation. In the evenings you can watch the light of fireflies.
If you want to, you can fish directly on the property or get refreshed by jumping from the cliffs into the sea, if the conditions allow.
The new patio deck is giving you a panoramic view of the ocean. During the day it´s a wonderful place to relax, to bathe in the sun, read a book, meditate, do your exercise, yoga ect. During the summer months you can enjoy stunning sun rises and sunsets from the here.

James Bond Beach - unser Traumstrand!: A short walk will take you to the famous yet hardly frequented James Bond Beach – a divine Caribbean beach with sun loungers and changing rooms free of charge as well as restaurant where you should definitely try jerk food. Thanks to an offshore reef the sea is very tranquil here, ideal for swimming and snorkelling. Since there is a small fee to access the beach you will often be able to enjoy this beautiful spot all by yourself.

Vacation far away from the crowds!: How about a trip to a beautiful waterfall not far from the property – without bus loads of tourists? Enjoy the beautiful location to swim or jump from the cliffs right into the water. During the week you will hardly meet anybody here, but on the weekends this is a popular hang-out place where local youths like to gather. As a whitey you will find it very easy to get into conversations with them.
Or you can let Rasta Selassie take you to his hidden farm in the mountains - on site, we can organize individual Real Jamaica tours that will lead you to the unknown treasures of the island.
This location offers you everything for a perfect vacation far away from tourist crowds. Here you will get in touch with the locals and discover the real Jamaica!
