About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 2 Showers, (Sleeps 2), recently refurbished
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 seaside cottage has its own set of stairs leading down to the sea. The adjacent reef provides shelter from the waves and interesting snorkeling. Complementary single and double kayaks, as well as a paddle-board, 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.
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, living area with dining table, bathroom with in/outdoor shower, and water heater.
The bedroom (330 sq.ft/31 sq.m), accessed by an external staircase, has an airy feel with a view that is 100% Caribbean. There is a four poster king-sized bed, sitting area, small balcony and newly fitted en-suite shower room with its own view of the sea. A flat-panel LCD television carries 100+ TV and 60+ radio channels. A wall safe is installed in the closet.
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.
Three reasonably well-behaved dogs and two cats provide the requisite security, but will not intrude unless invited. The gate is closed at night, with access to guests. The outside driveway lights are light sensitive therefore on all night.
There are two well-stocked grocery stores and small restaurants within easy walking distance. Usain Bolt has just opened Tracks and Records Sports Bar 5 minutes walk up the private road. Christopher's restaurant is 5 minutes walk also.
Terracotta tiles and bamboo 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, outside sofa and another dining table.
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 to the jetti leading to the swimming hole.

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.
Year Purchased: 1981
About the owner: Born and raised in Jamaica and then moved to England for a good number of years, working in fashion and textiles. Paris came next before returning home this past summer to look after the family home and continue my studio here.
Why the Owner Chose Ocho Rios, Jamaica:
