Negril bed and breakfast description

Spring Mountain Benefit Corp. is now exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Any contributions above fair market value for your stay at Spring Mountain Villa are now tax deductable under section 170 of the Code. Spring Mountain Benefit Corp. is a public charity in place to help local people in Jamaica. For more information, please see http://www.acrosticpoet.com/springmountainvilla.com.

Set high on a mountain, Spring Mountain Villa gives you privacy, a breathtaking view and a vacation like no other. Green Isle is a Jamaican town just miles from the white sand beaches and cliff side restaurants of world famous Negril. Your host Marvia lives right next door and will provide a genuine Jamaican vacation tailored to your taste! She is available to cook (Marvia is a great chef), guide and transport you to the many activities available locally. The entire 3 acre compound is fenced and the enclosure contains the two villas, many native fruit trees (mango, papaya, bannana, coconut), and a vegetable garden. For a modest fee, you can go deep sea fishing, river fishing, go horseback riding, visit the bird sanctuary and even hike to the falls. The Negril beach, just minutes away by car, is a seven mile crescent ringed with bars, restaurants and water activities.


Marvia, who has two young children, has years of experience as a tourist chaperone. She is fluent in English and knows her business very well. She was born and raised in the area. You can feel safe and secure in her care. She will escort you to the less expensive shops and stores as well as secluded and remote areas, if you wish, for a modest fee.

If you like the beach, this is the way to go: the white sands of Negril, the sunsets, the nighttime activities are at your disposal! You do not have to deal with the hassle of tourist hotels, with a myriad of rules and regulations. If you wish, you can relax on the beach every day and spend the entire time frequenting the local bars and restaurants. Every hotel on the beach has a bar and a beach area that are open to the public and most have amenities that you can enjoy (such as hammocks, a pool, and beach chairs) while you patronize their establishment.

If you like the cliffs, you can spend all day snorkeling off the rocks at any number of bars and restaurants that overlook the sea. You can ride there by auto or take a trip on a glass bottom boat around the beach to the cliffs. You can see the famous cliffs from the boat, snorkel on the reefs, swim to the cliffs (and dive, if you are brave!).

There are many glass bottom boats available in Negril to snorkel on the reefs or for lunch on a nearby island, where you can feast on lobster, fish and chicken (drink included). You can go deep sea fishing or river fishing, if this is your pleasure.

You can cool off and go river swimming (fresh water) by the waterfall. It is an easy hike through the lush green countryside.

If you are an explorer, then this is the vacation you want. You can hike at Roaring River and the Mayfield Falls or take a day trip to the bird sanctuary and enjoy the natural landscape at your own pace. There is no experience as exciting as having Jock cut open a coconut with his machete as you hike the countryside!

                              Location

                              Located about 30 minutes from the Negril Beach and Cliff resorts, high on a hilltop inland from Negril, Spring Mountain Villa provides a unique Jamaican vacation experience. Swim in the river, lie in the sun on the beach, go horsebackriding, hike to the falls, or visit the bird sanctuary... many wonders await you!

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2005

                              About the owner: Marvia and I built this property in 2005 in order to allow tourists to experience local life in Jamaica, and to bring much needed money to the area. Spring Mountain Benefit Corp, the nonprofit, uses all proceeds from rentals to benefit local people in the area. I've been going to Jamaica for over 30 years and have been 'sisters' with Marvia since 1998. I have always loved the place, the people and the culture and want to help in any way I can.

                              Why the Owner Chose Negril:
                              The location of this property is fantastic. You can see the sunrise from the back veranda and the sunset from the front veranda. It is secluded, high on the hill, and surrounded by farm land to ensure privacy. It is a beautiful location.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
                              Relaxed atmosphere, tailored to suit the traveler's needs. The vacation can be customized in just about any way imaginable. Also, any money paid over $30 per night is a US Federal tax write-off as it is a charitable donation.
