About the property

Jamaica vacation - waterfront Nautilus Villa on Blue Lagoon 3 bd/3bth, staffed

WATERFRONT JAMAICA VACATION RENTAL VILLA - beautiful Nautilus Villa on the Blue Lagoon, near Port Antonio on Jamaica's north shore. Still the best rates around for a gorgeous dive-off-the-deck waterfront property, three bedrooms, three bathrooms. Perfect for six guests.

HOW TO GET TO JAMAICA? Many flights serve Kingston airport, Montego Bay has even more. A driver and vehicle will be waiting to transfer you from arrival airport to Nautilus Villa (additional cost for stays of less than 10 days).

WHAT TO DO IN PORT ANTONIO? Fun excursions are too many to list, but check Things To Do below for some that many guests have enjoyed.

HOW DO I BOOK? Just email us and we will send you our guest agreement. Payment is easily made by credit card via Paypal, or wire transfer, or via this vrbo site.

NAUTILUS VILLA STAFF: The rental includes services of three staff who make sure that you have nothing to do except enjoy your vacation; they leave the property each evening after cooking your meal and finishing the clean up. Our local manager is an expert concierge - she will get you the best prices for any excursion you choose and special attention too, since she knows all the vendors.

NAUTILUS VILLA has a total capacity for six guests. There are decks on both levels; two bedrooms on the upper floor and a spacious, comfortable living room overlooking the deck and ocean. All bedrooms have king size beds which can also be separated to form twin beds. The third bedroom is on the lower level, with kitchen , dining room and a deck with steps for easy access to the water level and the two 2-person kayaks which are provided for your enjoyment, as well as snorkels, masks, fins, swimming noodles and life jackets. Indoors, there is a flat screen TV and cable, WiFi, media player for your own music and movies, as well as a wide range of books, board and card games. A telephone and local SIM card can be provided for your use; just top up the SIM card when necessary.

SPECIAL OFFER: For stays of ten days or more, Nautilus Villa guests will receive free round trip transfers from their arrival airport to the villa.

ADDITIONAL: Food costs are not included. Airport transfers for stays less than 10 days are not included. Food costs are similar to food costs in the US and Canada. We suggest a budget of $35-$40 per person per day, if all three meals are taken at the villa. Daily transport by the Nautilus Villa car and driver for excursions during your stay is also an additional cost.

THINGS TO DO: Many! The local property manager can arrange a variety of fun excursions: rafting down the Rio Grande (with lunch at the famed Belinda's open-air cafe), visiting Reach Falls or Dunn's River Falls or a coffee plantation. Hail one of the passing boatmen and have a tour of the coastline in the Port Antonio area. You can surf at Boston Beach and try jerk pork or chicken from one of the food stalls - they will all claim to be the original source of this famous Jamaican delicacy. You can go snorkeling at Winifred's Beach and enjoy Jamaica food cooked at Cynthia’s lunch shack for another unforgettable experience. Anthony Bourdain visited Jamaica in 2014 to shoot a TV series for his food show; he liked Cynthia’s food so much he came back twice! You will get special treatment if our local manager arranges your booking. A boatman can take you there, then return to pick you up a few hours later.

About Kay Cain

The owners are long-term Jamaican residents; the whole extended family loves this villa and is delighted to own it after enjoying its facilities for several years as rental guests.

Kay Cain purchased this villa in 2015

Why Kay Cain chose Jamaica

With the whole island to choose from, and with all their experience as global travelers, this lovely villa on the north shore of Jamaica, just a couple of hours from Kingston, is the owners' preference for a getaway to tranquility and relaxation.

What makes this villa unique

Excellent design that emphasizes the nearness of the water and views of a nearby island and endless ocean; allowing occupants to live on either of the two large decks and feel themselves afloat on the ocean. There is a full staff including chef, butler and maid so guests can eat in the villa, enjoying what amounts to their own private hotel. There is also a driver/car whose services can be rented for excursions or shopping or dining out. Those who book 10 nights or more will have free R/T transfers from their arrival airport.

Booking authorised via only.

Natilus Villa - Beautiful Blue Lagoon!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place! Within seconds of arrival we felt relaxed and at home. The staff welcomed us the moment we arrived and pampered us the entire time. Thank you Kervin, Junior and Yvette you made this magical place extra special. Junior cooked Jamaican dishes and even shared recipes with my 17 year old son. Kervin helped my 13 and 15 year old daughters with the kayaks all day long. Yevett was there to make sure they had everything they needed. The house itself was very comfortable, each bedroom with its own bathroom. The location is prime. We loved to jump right of the deck into the clear water and kayak a short paddle to the blue hole. Many other sites are a taxi away and the staff can help you arrange a ride. If you like to take photos you will be in paradise. We did not want to leave and will definitely return! Should you be lucky enough to have the opportunity to stay at the Nautilus don't hesitate!

Alle die die Natur lieben und gleichzeitig verwoehnt warden wollen sind bei Nautilus bestens aufgehoben. Das Haus liegt traumhaft in einer Bucht mit abwechselreicher Unterhaltung. Monkey Island, das Blue Hole, San San Beach sind mit dem Kayak in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen und Body, Mind und Soul geben sich der Natur ganz hin. Mit dem Auto/Taxi koennen viele weitere Plaetze besucht warden, alle sind einmalig. Darunter die Flosfahrt den Rio Grande hinunter, Waterfalls etc. Dieser Platz und Urlaub wird ihnen immer in der Erinnerung bleiben. Junior (Koch), Kervin und Yvette machen ihren Aufenthalt im Haus sehr angenehm und verwoehnen Sie zum vollstem.

Natillus Villa- Paridise Blue Lagoon Jamaica!!!! Vegan Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Nautilus was wonderful!! Booking it was very easy as Kay was very helpful in making sure all our needs were met prior to arrival, great customer service! Once we arrived Junior cooked delicious VEGAN Jamaican style food for us and Curvin made us feel right at home. The house is very comfortable and spacious. Jump in to the beautiful clear ocean off your deck. We are a family with 2 young children (5yo and 7months old) it is great for families! There's two bedrooms upstairs which was great because we had the kids right next to us and then one bedroom downstairs.

Yvonne was also great making sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Jennifer, we are delighted that your family enjoyed staying at Nautilus Villa - and especially that the vegan food recipes turned out so well. Our chef was happy to get the opportunity to broaden his range of culinary experience, especially when it brought smiles to the faces of those gorgeous children! We look forward to your next visit!

Beautiful, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location, right on beautiful clear water. The staff is very courteous, and the house provides a perfect space for up to 6 people. It's secluded and tranquil yet is a close enough drive to more touristy options, and great food. There's lots of light, room to relax, and is a perfect getaway location. The area and islands around the house are perfect for easygoing exploration as well.

A Relaxing and Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I had a fantastic trip in Jamaica in this accommodation. The location is ideal, providing us with panoramic views of water, and direct access to kayaking. The house is in mint condition, with great rooms and a sprawling deck to unwind. As a whole, the house is of great value for money, and the most incredible place to experience Jamaica.
