Property description

The cottage at Te Moana shares a landscaped 1-acre waterfront lot with owners Peter & Annabella Proudlock’s home. Only one mile from the centre of Ocho Rios, yet a world away, Te Moana offers an idyllic escape from the real world.

The property is perched on a cliff 30 ft above the Caribbean Sea, which is accessed by steps over smooth rocks to a sandy swimming area. The adjacent reef provides shelter from the waves and interesting snorkeling. Complementary single and double kayaks are a fun way to explore the coastline. Passing fishing canoes offer a motorized alternative. There is a sunbathing/sunset-watching deck just above the sea., and a more private yoga platform, sheltered by a small island. Four reasonably well-behaved dogs and three rather shy cats provide the requisite security, but will not intrude unless invited. The fourth cat, Kayak, is resident in the cottage, but welcomes visitors warmly. There are two well-stocked grocery stores, and a beach within easy walking distance.

The Cottage is completely self-contained, with its own entrance and small garden, located on the sea. Downstairs is spacious (366 sq.ft/34 sq.m) and houses the fully equipped kitchen with wall safe, living area with dining table, sleeping alcove with single/day-bed, bathroom with in/outdoor shower, and the water heater.

Terracotta tiles and wicker furniture are attractive and functional, while the walls are adorned with part of Peter & Annabella’s eclectic art & craft collection. The 24' x 9' (7.3 x 2.7 m) verandah boasts 2 hammocks, 2 chairs and another dining table.

The bedroom (330 sq.ft/31 sq.m), accessed by an external staircase, has an Indian feel with a view that is 100% Caribbean. There is a king-sized bed, sitting area, small balcony and shower room. A flat-panel LCD television carries 100+ TV and 60+ radio channels.

Rumours that, on a clear day, you can see Cuba remain unconfirmed, although it does appear possible. Ceiling fans and the trade winds provide all the necessary cooling.

The garden has a cliffside deck with bench for relaxing sundowners. Steps lead down to a grotto, where the kayaks are kept, and on to a bridge and more steps.
