Property description

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 the blissful peace of Nautilus Villa.

WHAT TO DO IN JAMAICA? Fun excursions are too many to list, but check Things To Do below for some of the huge range. Our local manager makes all the arrangements, gets you the best prices.

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 usually 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 and 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.

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

ADDITIONAL: Airport transfers for stays less than 10 days and food costs are not included; these 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.
