My husband and I wanted a quiet spot for our honeymoon and didn’t want to do the all inclusive hotel thing. I read all the reviews before choosing Te Moana and let me tell you they do not lie. This place is breathtaking. It is quite literally a slice of paradise. I struggled whether to keep this beautiful secret to myself or share with others. You will fall asleep with the sound of the ocean and cool breeze coming through every open space. The cottage has everything you need and you can spend the entire day doing absolutely nothing but looking out of your bedroom balcony. You will never want to leave. Jessica was the perfect host. Everything was perfect. We truly enjoyed our honeymoon.
Fabulous and Awe inspiring !
perfect for an idyllic romantic getaway, very serene and peaceful location away from touristy resorts yet so close to city centre quick 5 min drive . views are breathtaking from every part of cottage , loved the fact that you can swim , snorkel and kayak right your doorstep with private access to ocean, very detailed attention is paid to even minute things in the cottage and is equipped with everything that you can possibly imagine and so much more... host is very friendly and welcoming, loved the dogs and cat on property .. this has to be the best place i ve every stayed and i have visited so many carribean islands .. this is second to none hands down, if your looking for a relaxing place to just simply unwind you will not find a better place than this.
Thank you so much! So happy We could make your vacation so relaxed and enjoyable. Jessica
This place is a treasure.
Charming, quirky and private. Loved it!!! We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Te Moana. Make sure you have Sophia cook dinner for you at least once. It was the best meal of our stay!
Because we're both seniors, getting into and out of the water was a bit of a challenge for us because the sea was frequently rough (just our luck weather wise) and we weren't as agile as we thought!
Mostly we slept, read, gazed out to sea, watched the birds, and enjoyed our perfect little cottage. Only went to the beach one day - but no regrets. Hate to leave.
Perfect get away.
This was a perfect location and property for a quiet get away with my husband. Beautiful garden, ocean views, and authentic house décor.

Fantastic seaside cottage
My wife and I spent 8 days at Te Moana and enjoyed ourselves completely. It was our first trip to Jamaica but, we had dreamt about it for years. The property is a true gem and the ocean views and private access were unreal. Our goal was to just chill out and enjoy this magical spot and it was an easy goal to attain. The driver that Jessica arranged, Damien, is an amazing guy and enjoyed his easy “no problem mon” attitude. The local food is delicious and the water is very good, right from the faucet. If your looking for a place in paradise to unwind or reconnect, look no further.
So glad you both enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the wonderful review!
Te Moana - Everything I thought it would be and more...
I've been to Jamaica more times than I can count, but wanted a quieter experience than the typical all-inclusive resort this time around. Te Moana provided that and so much more. I spent much of my time working on my next novel right from the hammock. Everywhere you go, there is another breathtaking view. The staff was wonderful and Jessica and Sebastian, the owners, were very engaging and helpful. Our driver, Damien, was more than that. He cooked for us and we had first class meals and never had to leave the cottage unless we wanted. Te Moana made it so we didn't want to go anywhere but there, our home away from home! Can't wait to go back.
The Ocho Rios area boasts more attractions than anywhere else in Jamaica, including the world famous Dunn's River Falls. Bob Marley's birth and final resting place can be found at Nine Miles in the hills of St. Ann. Water sports, horseback riding, river tubing, canopy rides, swimming with dolphins, plantation tours, botanical gardens are all here, along with a less traditional ride on a camel.
