Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: Like many travelers seeking some sun during the cold winter months, Michele and Denis found Little Bay and fell in love with the friendliness and wonderful spirit of the community. On one of those late evenings having “wouldn’t it be nice conversations” we saw ourselves making an investment in our future in this remote fishing village. Away from the bustling tourist areas and far from the cold northern winters we founded Tansobak Cottage and have been nurturing the one acre seaside cottage and landscape with buildings and gardens since 1998. It is still our home away from home and those who come to enjoy our place of peace feel the vibes, it’s just sweet and carefree. Guests are cared for and our staff have been with us from the beginning and have become family to us.
Why the Owner Chose Little Bay, Jamaica:
Little Bay is a small and friendly fishing village that has been relatively undeveloped with other than small cottages, local restaurants and shops. It sits in a remote location 12 miles southeast and away from the vacationing crowds of Negril. Our guests have found that while going in to Negril for the beach, food, music and other attractions is great, they are so happy to return from the hustle and bustle of the crowds to the peace and tranquil seaside hammocks and saltwater pool at Tansobak Cottage. Visiting the local shops, the all age school, meeting the locals over domino games in the small thatch, bamboo or wood clad bars or at the beach for volleyball or an evening soccer game is a common pastime for guests. Little Bay visitors really get to know the culture and lifestyle of the local fisherman and farmer Jamaicans. Artists have come to Little Bay and left their mark of artistry on the sides of the shops over the many years and photographers and artists find the Little Bay area remarkable in inspiring subjects to render in their own unique styles. Little Bay is the location for one of Bob Marley's island getaway homes and the local swimming hole is still located next to that property though only fragments of Marley's original dwelling remain. Locals can tell wonderful stories of Bob's time in the Little Bay area and the history of the area is rich with interesting details, just ask anyone here, they would enjoy talking to you and swapping stories. While Tansobak Seaside Cottage offers simple room rates we recommend the wonderful meal packages. The food is prepared Jamaica style just for our guests by our local cook who, if we can brag just a bit, is one of the best in the area. The variety and selection of seasonal island fruits and meats, fish, lobster, rice with coconut, pumpkin n' peas is ample for any appetite if you choose this option.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Little Bay itself is a friendly Jamaican community that loves visitors. The Tansobak Seaside Cottage is in a private location on the sparkling blue Caribbean that is relaxed and away from tourist crowds and the hustle and bustle of the resort areas. Our present staff have served our guests for over 15 years and enjoy making sure your getaway is enjoyable and relaxing.
