About the Property
Estate with room options for Couples and/or larger groups!
Snorkel or dive the reef easily reached from the sandy beach and private dock or spend the day on the pool deck sunbathing or just walking in the lush tropical gardens landscaped with local flora and palms. There is an outdoor shower for you to rinse off after your snorkeling trip too!
With the accommodations available in a variety of ways, Big Rock can be an intimate and romantic base for 2 or is ideal for couples or a small group travelling together – whatever you need, Big Rock will provide you with tranquil surroundings, and a wonderful base from which to enjoy the island.
There’s nothing better then an outside kitchen! You will enjoy preparing meals in the fully equipped outdoor kitchen which adjoins the pool or creating your own pizza in Big Rock’s Pizza Palapa! The wood-fired pizza oven and the large gas BBQ is perfect for grilling fresh fish or steaks. When renting one or both of the casitas, guests have exclusive use of the pool palapa kitchen.
The main house has a beautifully furnished living room giving an open plan island style, ideal for sharing the talk of the day before sitting down to dinner. Patio style doors open out onto the wrap-around deck which is furnished so that you can sit and read or enjoy the view from a hammock over the pool to the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea. The main house has a fully equipped kitchen and laundry.
Each of the two bedrooms in the main house has a Queen bed, air conditioner and each with its own full bathroom.
Wireless Internet service is available throughout the property so that you can keep in touch with those back home.
Our Property Managers will be at the airport to greet you and assist with your rental car pick up or transfer vehicle departure (transfers at extra charge) before heading to Big Rock via the Grocery Store if you’d like. They will ensure that you are familiarized with the house and are on call throughout your stay to provide assistance and answer any questions that you might have.
You’ll have the services of Pudens and his wife Isabel who live in a separate cottage at the entrance to Big Rock.
Pudens is a wonderful local islander who is the full time Gardener/Caretaker/Boat Captain/Pizza Chef at Big Rock.
Isabel will be providing daily room freshen-up service and will always be available to assist with any of your needs.
Pudens and Isabel will serve a complimentary all you can eat wood oven pizza party for guests on whatever evening you want. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available for an additional charge. You will need to give advance notice of at least 24 hours for any meal.
Although you can rent tanks and dive or snorkel the reef just off the beach from this home, there many local dive sights along the shore this side of the island. Located just a few minutes by boat are 3 well-known dive shops: Dive Port Royal, Reef House and Islander Diving. Pudens can drop you off at their docks and pick you up when you’re finished.
The 22’, 85 horse power panga style power boat is comfortable for deep sea fishing, taking trips to famous Pigeon Keys, tour the mangroves or to a number of well known and not so well known on and over the water restaurant/bars like BJ’s Backyard Bar, Hole in the Wall, Frenchy’s 44, La Sirena, Pookey’s to name just a few. Pudens will be on hand to boat you over to Oak Ridge for shopping and sundries. Boat service on demand for all guests is included for no additional charge to locales from Port Royal to Jonesville.
Hourly rates will apply for boat usage beyond these areas and Pudens will captain. Deep sea fishing is slightly more as a fishing captain is used.
The house is located in a very peaceful, remote part of the island which is approximately an hour from the International Airport at Coxen Hole, 40 minutes to French Harbour (with one of the biggest and best grocery stores on the island) and about 1 1/2 hours to the West Bay area.
If you wanted to rent a vehicle, a 4x4 rental is essential as the last 15 minutes of the journey are on an undulating dirt road. Another option is to park securely and inexpensively at BJ’s in Oak Ridge and boat to Big Rock. If you prefer, you can also taxi directly to BJ’s in Oak Ridge and never use a car.
A local cell phone will be available for you during your stay so that you can call ahead for the boat to be waiting for you on your return.
Come and enjoy a lovely peaceful vacation away from the hustle and bustle – this truly is the ultimate in peace and tranquility but with all the comforts of home.
