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.

Daily transport by the Nautilus Villa car and driver can be arranged at additional cost.

THINGS TO DO: So many ways to enjoy this beautiful area: 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, tour the coastline in the Port Antonio area. 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. Snorkel at Winifred's Beach and enjoy Jamaican food cooked at Cynthia’s lunch shack for another unforgettable experience. Go by road or with a boatman, who will 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 Port Antonio

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.

Booking authorised via only.

Exceeding expectations

  • 5 of 5

The views from the Nautilus villa are absolutely magical. The experience of being right on the water - for breakfast, lunch and yoga is life changing. The sonos music system was such a treat and set the perfect background music for our stay. We kayaked and paddle Boarded to blue lagoon and Monkey Island. We also went for exploratory jogs and hikes in the morning. Portland's vegetation is exceptionally lush and the views on our runs were beautiful.

However, the beauty of our surroundings was paralleled (arguably surpassed) by the hospitality and talent of the staff. The head chef, Junior, is undoubtedly the best cook I have ever met. Not only is junior's food amazing - but he requires little to no instruction and has an expansive repertoire - he caters to Vegans, vegetarians as well as meat lovers. You will not lift a finger in the house - as the butler and housekeeper ensure that the house is always clean and that you constantly have a fresh cocktail or cup of coffee in your hand. Thank you nautilus.

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.
