  • OUTSTANDING PROPERTY

    "We just came back (yesterday) from the most wonderful stay at the Villa. Everything was outstanding from the staff, gorgeous home, beautiful setting, immaculate kept rooms, delicious meals. Nadine and all the staff were the most helpful, warm, happy people, they could not do enough for the 18 of us that were there to celebrate my brother in laws 50th. Thank you all for making our celebration so special, we look forward to another visit very soon."

  • The week that I look forward to the most each year.

    "This was the second week that I have spent at Villa Mara. It was like coming home! We were met at the front door with welcomes and hugs. Last year I thought that the stay was amazing - this year - it was even better. I don't know how the staff did it but they remembered little details about our likes and were right on top of everything. The beautiful house has the atmosphere of real Jamaica and I must say that I got the back to boarding school feeling when we had to leave. My husband, daughter, son-in-law and two grand daughters accompanied me on this trip. Every one had a blast and felt most pampered. My grand daughters both cried when they left. Many very, very happy memories have been made at Villa Mara. For that week we were made to feel that it was our home."

  • Great place for a couple or a small family with little ones

    "The staff seemed like a family and the service was excellent. We really enjoyed Cathy and appreciated her good housekeeping and consideration. Upon request she made us a delicious Jamaican dinner: Curried Mutton, Stewed Chicken and Rice and Peas. Also upon request she arranged for a nice young lady to cornrow my daughter's hair. Lewis at the security gate was so pleasant to interact with and very accommodating. It was those types of services that exceeded expectations. The condo was bright and inspiring with the owner's original artwork as well as local pieces. There was a great selection of beach toys and inflatables - great for those with small children. Small water ants and mosquitoes are common (spray and a vaporizer are options at the rental) but neither were significant problems during our stay. The small beach cove and pool were nice features and the ocean view was delightful. The restaurants across the street (Glenn's & The Jerk Center) were very good. We opted for a rental car because we wanted to go on excursions at our convenience. There are so many fantastic attractions close by the rental property. We (even our 4-year old) climbed Dunn's River Falls - it was fantastic, we even liked the beach there(water shoes sold at Dunn's were cheaper than anywhere else); We also went to Bamboo (formerly Reggae) Beach twice and loved it, the day the cruise ship was in was crowded but fun and we got there early so had a good spot; Note: check both Ocho Rios and Falmouth Port schedules to find out when cruise ships will be docked; While driving around, exploring we happened upon the entrance to Blue Hole. They had just closed for the day but several locals highly recommended it (especially for strong swimmers). Lots of helpful information was provided pre-arrival. Champion Foods was the preferable grocery store and Nancy's Cambio gave the same money exchange rates as NCB bank with much shorter lines. The condo met all our needs and the rental process was straightforward. The owner was very pleasant to interact with and always responded promptly. We had a great time and were so glad we chose the property."

  • great time BEST STAFF ever!

    "we stayed a week over thanksgiving and had a great time. The home was clean and located on a great reef for snorkeling, which we did every day! The pool and yard was beautiful too, great sunsets outside eating great meals every night. Now the home , pool and ocean where great BUT the STAFF made our trip memorable. Ms Jenni's cooking, Ms Tasha's service and smile, Mr Jabon enthusiastic attitude to make sure we all have a great time was second to none. We ate great jamaican cusine daily, played games at night with the staff, laughed and felt like they were family. They make a great trip super special! Thanks for a thanksgiving we will never forget! Mo, Mike and Matt"

Ocho Rios Travel Tips

Ocho Rios Beach Rentals Are Quite Popular in Jamaica Travel Options

Translated literally to “Eight Rivers,” Ocho Rios is found on the northern coast of Jamaica within the parish of Saint Ann. This region is well known for its water sports and scuba diving so if you are planning an exciting adventure vacation, Ocho Rios beach rentals will be right up your alley. This Caribbean town is one of the most popular destinations for Jamaica travel and travellers adore Ocho Rios villas.

Do Not Miss Dunn’s River Falls near Ocho Rios Villas

Once a booming fishing village, Ocho Rios is now a prime vacation destination. In fact, it is a popular stop on cruise ships, making it the first exposure to Jamaica travel that many people get. One of the reasons that it is such a popular destination is that it is home to Dunn’s River Falls. The waterfalls are located quite close to many Ocho Rios beach rentals. Thousands of people visit the cascading falls every year, and for good reason. Fed by springs in the hills, the waterfall flows almost 700 feet into the sea. During your stay in Ocho Rios villas, you might enjoy climbing the falls and taking a swim.

Jamaica Travel Offers Choice and Freedom

Though there are many resorts in and around Ocho Rios, you will find that you may get the most out of your vacation when you stay in Ocho Rios beach rentals. Because they are situated near all the hottest spots, you will feel centrally located to everything. Ocho Rios villas also allow you the freedom to vacation at your own pace. You will not have to worry about missing breakfast at the hotel or sticking to anyone else’s schedule except yours!

Other Fun Stuff near Ocho Rios Beach Rentals

Aside from the wonderful beaches, scuba diving, and waterfalls, Jamaica travel can offer you so much more. In fact, just getting away from it all in a tropical paradise can refresh and renew your body and mind. One way to achieve this is by visiting one of the natural mineral springs in the area. Or, if you prefer to commune with aquatic wildlife, why not visit Dolphin Cove and swim with the dolphins? Either way, you will experience something you will not get at home which will help make this trip even more profound.
