Ocho Rios villa description

Almond Tree Villa and Tamarind Apartment can be booked together or separately sleeping a minimum of 2 people in Tamarind or up to a maximum of 10 adults and 3 children when combining the 2 properties.
Both properties share a beautiful private swimming pool measuring 25ft by 15ft and are set next to each other in lovely gardens. The location is Selbourne Gardens, a quiet and safe estate about 3 miles from Ocho Rios town center, on the exciting north coast of Jamaica.
Almond Tree Villa has 4 large bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and Tamarind is a studio apartment with 1 double bedroom, bathroom and kitchen.
The villa is very comfortable with a real homely feel about it. Every room has a high powered ceiling fan and there is cable with flat screen TV in the lounge area and cable TV in 2 of the bedrooms.

The newly built Tamarind Apartment which overlooks the pool has a definate 'WOW' factor with a very impressive Mahogany hardwood floor. The living space is the ideal size for a couple. The kitchen and the shower room are both stylish and spacios. There is a flat screen TV for your entertainment. Because the apartment is dual aspect with plenty of windows there is always a nice breeze blowing through and Tamarind is further cooled by a powerful ceiling fan.

Our manager Nigel is always available to cook breakfast or the occassional evening meal. You will find him very helpful and really accomodating.
Airport pick up: We offer airport transfer to or from either Kingston or Montego Bay airports. Both airports are about 60 miles away.

Daily transport.

Junior is a licenced taxi driver and is always available to offer a very useful service to and from the villa. You will have his mobile phone number and you can phone him whenever you need picking up from ‘Ochi’ or a nearby beach.
Daily transport: Tours and the local beaches.

If you are interested in booking a tour please speak to Junior. Our mini bus is available for charter work locally or to any part of the island. Let us show you the sights of Jamaica. We know all the beauty spots, near and far.

There are several wonderful beaches within a few miles of the villa, Dermotts Beach, Reggae Beach, Golden Sands, Shaw Park Beach, James Bond Beach and Laughing Waters. Bob Marley's birthplace at Nine Mile and playwright Noel Coward's house Firefly with its spectacular view over Port Maria are worth a visit. Right on your very doorstep is White River where there is a choice of kayaking, tubing or rafting down a three mile stretch of the river from the 17th century landmark Spanish Bridge.

                                                    The villa was amazing. Marvin and Tessa were like part of our family from the first day. Spacious enough for me and my 4 kids as well as any visitors I had. Pricing was flexible and reasonable. My kids loved the pool and and going to the riverand beach nearby. I visit jamaica every year with my kids for 1 month every year and this was the best trip ever. Close enough to Mobay and Kingston so I could catch up with friends there and far away enough to ensure my privacy. Would defineately recommend this villa to anyone visiting jamaica, Just add airconditioning for next year please.

                                                    Recommended for: Adventure seekers, families with young children, girls getaway, pet owners, age 55+, families with teenagers, sightseeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway.

                                                    This is our fourth time staying at Almond Tree and once again Neil was very helpful. Marvin the caretaker is now christened Marvin the Marvellous, as nothing is too much trouble for him. One or two little niggles, but one phone call to Neil and they were immediately dealt with. Already booked for our next stay. Had several meals cooked for us by Marvin while we were there and they were superb. If you stay here get Marvin to organise a barbecue for you - better than any restaurant meal. The new cleaner, Carleen, is wonderful. Everything spick and span, with even the bedsheets ironed. Lovely safe neighbourhood with friendly neighbours and close to all the beaches in Ocho Rios. Check out Sugar Pot Ruins beach on the road to Orocabessa - a little gem of the beach with a great bar and restaurant.

                                                    wonderful wonderful wonderful. What more can I say. The description of the accommodation was accurate regarding layout and facilities. It was clean and well furnished and in good decorative order. The grounds are well maintained. The Manager was on hand for advice and support around local amenities, very friendly and helpful man. 15 minutes away from Dunns River Falls and other local attractions including Sandals Ocho Rios and a private beach. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and relatives.

                                                    Almond Tree Villa was a wonderful home that managed to make my whole family feel welcomed and relaxed. The manager was very accommodating and treated us with the utmost respect. I hadn't been to Jamaica in 10 years; my brothers still live there, and I wanted a place where we could all be together and enjoy each other's company - this place was it. My brothers said that was the best vacation they had ever been on and hope when we come back for a visit we go to the same place.The fruit trees, the pool, and the setting of the house was absolutely wonderful. I loved that it was a gated home with its own driveway. I love the way the rooms were set up; there were ten of us all together and everyone was able to have a bed to her/himself. My only concern with the house is that it does not have any form of cooling system. My husband had an allergic reaction to something, and it would have helped if he was able to stay cool. If not A/C units then I believe ceiling fans would have added to the ambiance of the house. Aside from that, everything else was wonderful. Mervin did a wonderful job cooking a meal for all of our family - to include some of my in-laws who were also visiting the island for the first time; however, they were staying somewhere else, but Mervin cooked a wonderful meal for us all that my mother-in-law is still talking about. I loved the dogs Boxer and Tiny; very protective of their home but very friendly to those within. I would recommend this place to large families who are looking for a wonderful home away from home. Thank you for allowing us the use of this place.

                                                    This is a little gem of a place in Eltham Och Rios, it's clean, tidy and well maintained. The customer service could not be faulted, and I would defiantly recommend my friends and family members. Transport is available on the premises and there are great venues near by to eat, to swim or just site see. If you want to stay in, the swimming pool is lovely, clean and well kept, and Marvin the house manager is also a great cook as well as a great tour guide. We loved it!!!

                                                    Perfect house for big families. Plenty of room. Affordable. Beautifully maintained. All the amenities of home. Private pool is a refreshing addition. Close to town and local eateries. Marvin is a great cook and guide.

                                                    It is hard to be back home after spending the best two weeks ever. the villa is great and the swimimg pool is fantastic. Marvin & Tessa really know how to make you part of the family and they really take care of you. The villa is very clean and tidy. Best place for value. You def get to know Jamaica and get close to the locals.

                                                    Once again, a marvellous stay at Almond Tree. We love this place, it's like a home away from home. Neil, the owner is always in contact with you to make sure everything is ok for your stay and is always open to suggestions on improvements. Marvin and Tessa are absolute angels, helping out with everything, inlcduing going shopping with you at the local market, to help you get the best prices for things. Marvin's cooking is so good that I left it all to him, only cooking one meal in the entire three weeks we were there. He even was willing to pick us up in the early hours of the morning from various nightclubs in Ocho Rios. Tessa keeps the place spotless and her washing service is superb, its lovely to come home with all your holiday clothes already having been washed. Having the pool was a real bonus, especially the exclusive use of it. The peace and tranquility of this villa and its neighbourhood is the main reason we come back here, in fact we have already pre-booked for next Christmas and New Year. Love it and would highly recommend it to everyone. Judith and Andrew - Preston
