Why Property Manager chose Treasure Beach

Relaxing and Fabulous
We just returned from a week stay at Shakti Home and couldn't be more pleased with our decision to stay at this fabulous property. Upon arrival, we were greeted by two smiling faces who grew to be some of our absolute favorite people. Miss Audrey and McCarl are the very best. They don't skip a beat and made sure that our every need was met during our trip.
I am giving this property 5 stars for the following reasons -
1) The view - from nearly everywhere in the house, the view of the sea is spectacular. Not only do you get a glimpse of paradise from every glance, the sounds of the waves are soothing and peaceful.
2) The food - Miss Audrey is a phenomenal cook. Meals are packed with flavor and well thought out. Each day we pushed ourselves away from the table full and happy. Jerk pork, pepper steak and grilled mahi mahi were our favorite dinner dishes. We can't leave McCarl out here though as he was in the kitchen as well helping to prepare meals and set up for service.
3) Overall accommodations - the rooms are well appointed and have comfortable beds, the pool is in a perfect location on the property and is very refreshing during hot days, the furniture in both patio areas is perfect and provides wonderful place to relax.
I will add that there are a few things that need some attention though - the kitchen could use a refresh. New appliances and a bigger space for Miss Audrey and McCarl to work their magic would make this home so much better. The refrigerator is small and the stove has seen better days.
The shower head in the master bathroom did not work as it was intended to and there were a lot of ants in the bathrooms.
There are 4 bicycles and they were pretty worn down. I would suggest getting bikes with gears as this would help riders on uphill treks.
All in all, we were very pleased and were able to overlook the things that need some improvements. We will definitely return...mainly to see Miss Audrey and McCarl as they truly are one of the biggest highlights of this property!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review Carla. It was great seeing all of you relaxing and enjoying your stay. We very much appreciate your comments and suggestions. I am sorry to hear of the ants problem you experienced and we will make sure to take care of them. It is in our near future plans to update and expand the kitchen to make it worthy of Audrey and McCarl's talents! Thank you again and we look forward to your return!
Best in Treasure Beach
This was our second trip to Shatki house and it was just as relaxing as the first. You cannot find a home closer to the beach. There are sdventures within a hour or so but we chose to hang out and enjoy the crashing waves of the ocean, walking on the beach, the plunge pool and delicious food at the house. The water was rougher than last time we came in May so we did not feel comfortable swimming in the cove but, the plunge pool was there for relaxing. We enjoyed cocktails at Jakes and Jack Spratt when we wanted to see other people. Shatki House and TB gets you away from the tours and tourists but, those are just at arms reach when you want it!
Can I tell you that I feel like I just got back from Paradise?
After spending in Montego Bay we took the gorguous drive across the island to the amazing fishing community of Treasure Beach to our dreamy beach house that would be our Om away from Home. At Shakti Home, there is something for everyone in the family. Every morning my husband and I did a different bike ride around the wonderful village of Treasure Beach to come home in time for Miss Audrey's delicious home cooked Jamaican breakfast (with freshly baked bread) and a swim in most amazing cove. The kids explored the beach, collected shells boogie boarded, rode bicycles down and hung out at Jakes, did Art class with Rhonda, frolicked in the perfect plunge pool while we relaxed with books and hammocks or enjoyed a rum punch or 2 made by our lovely house man, McCarl. There is so much to do on this part of the Island. Shabba picked us up one day for a boat ride to see the dolphins (yes, we actually jumped in and swam with the dolphins) and picnic lunch on the beach. Another day we toured the fantastic Black River Safari to see the crocodile and other Jamaican wildlife and then on to YS Waterfalls for zip lining. On our last day, we ventured to the Treasure Beach Sports Park to watch a local cricket tournament and see the action. Miss Audrey's cooking is to die for…I don't think I have ever eaten so well in all my life. We have come back to London different people…relaxed, inspired, fulfilled and so at Peace with all. We have already booked our trip for next year!
Our Favorite Home in Jamaica! We love Shakti!!
We have been visiting Jamaica annually for over 20 years. The last several years we have stayed at Shakti Home. It is a "home" to us in every sense of the word. Aside from its incredible comfort and beauty it has a special feeling no doubt reflecting the owners Nicky and Sharon. The rooms are very sweetly appointed with beautiful and whimsical artwork. The inside blends with the outside in an easy flow---you feel like you are one with the sea and the sand. The staff, Audrey, McCarl and Sonya are part of Shakti and part of what makes it feel like home. We have decided that Audrey is the best cook on the island---and the meals served up at Shakti are a central part of the experience. Every year that we have returned there have been significant upgrades to the house. New floors, new showers, and the biggest recent addition, a plunge pool. Many afternoons spent at the next door cove body surfing followed by a quick shower and a plunge in the pool with a red stripe in hand. Can it get any better? One of my favorite spots---the hammock on the yoga cabana overlooking the sea. Sunsets are stunning! Treasure Beach is one of the best parts of the island and Shakti is by far our favorite place to stay!
Wow, Erin thank you for your amazing review and it is such a joy for Nicky and I when we here back from you and that you are enjoying all the upgrades-especailly the pool which we are so so proud of!! Shakti Home is a work of love for us and we really appreciate hearing from you that you love it too! Happy Holidays and we can't wait to have you back next year...lots of plans for the coming year too to make Shakti Home even more special. Love, Sharon and Nicky!
Most unique and special place I ever stayed
You cannot really compare Shakti Home to almost anything. I doubt their is a more luxurious place in all of Jamaica and without question it's the nicest place in all of Treasure Beach. You also are VERY safe to walk around outside the grounds in Treasure Beach. We were here for Thanksgiving and Audrey cooked for us and it was wonderful! Maccao (who's name I'm sure I just spelled wrong) the groundskeeper was also pretty awesome. He invited me for when he went spear fishing even - I didn't do it because I'm not the best swimmer :) The ENTIRE house opens up to the ocean - the hammocks are nice but so are the beach chairs on the lawn. The pool with the infinity edge was pretty awesome for a view. The only remotely negative thing was the first night we were there we didn't close the house up by dark and we invited A LOT of bugs inside. I probably killed 150 tiny black beetles that night in bed - lesson learned though - the second night we closed the house up early and had no issues. This place truly is spectacular and we will be back! One suggestion is to go with some family or friends so you can share the cost - but it was worth every penny for me and my girlfriends getaway Thanksgiving :)
Thank you so so much for your beautiful review of Shakti Home..it is truly unique and special and I think that is because it is filled with so much love! Im so happy you enjoyed your stay and the amazing food by the one and only Miss Audrey and the care of McCarl..we have a great team. Looking forward to having you back again very soon. Much love, Nicky and Sharon Feanny
Shakti Home is a beautiful andsoulful spot and easily one of my favourite on the island! The house has a yogi glam vibe, with all the basics covered : a tree house bedroom with a shower in the bed room, it's right on the beach, an outdoor shower and an awesome hammock spot for naps and relaxing. And to top it all off the food was awesome! Treasure beach is the true authentic Jamaican experience. It's rootzy, real and theres tons to do. There are boat tours out to Pelican Bar (a bar built in the middle of the sea) The famous Jakes hotel and Jack Sprat restaurant nearby (try the lobster pizza) YS Falls and the list goes on... Shakti home hits the sweet spot with its positive yoga vibes fused with modern comforts, true Bohemian Luxury.
Thanks so so much for your kind words Summer and you truly described the heart of Shakti Home...it is a place where you can truly let go and just BE!! Cant wait to have you back next time when the pool is built! We are starting construction next week and its going to be amazing!! Thanks again for making it Shakti Home-your OM away from Home!
