Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, 8 Sleeps
Sparkling turquoise seas, the verdant northern coastline, dazzling sunrises, tropical flowers and lush vegetation welcome you to Cabarita Lookout. Relax by the sparkling pool, enjoy a massage by Racquel, our in-house masseuse, dine under the stars and step into a new way to vacation. Escape the hustle and bustle of super clubs and tourism and enjoy your new "home away from home" in Jamaica. Our villa, located fourteen mile east of Ocho Rios, was completed in 2009 on the historic Wentworth estate, an estate filled with banana, orange, lime, mango and papaya trees. Believed to be the illustrious Captain Henry Morgan's historic lookout and sitting adjacent to playwright Noel Coward's dramatic estate "Firefly," Cabarita Lookout has one of the most beautiful views in all of Jamaica. Elegant yet cozy, we want our home to be your "home away from home." On your arrival at Montego Bay Airport, you'll be greeted by Cutty, your driver, butler and new "best friend." Cutty has a wealth of knowledge about Jamaica and will be happy to share the lore of his land as he drives you to Cabarita Lookout. On arrival you'll be greeted with a rum punch by Sharon, both a fabulous cook and meticulous housekeeper. Cool sea breezes and breathtaking views will erase any memories of work or travel.
Cabarita Lookout is located in close proximity to James Bond Beach, Dunn's River Falls, Dolphin Cove, The Blue Hole, Mystic Mountain and Fern Gully. The villa has private beach access at Moxon's Beach Club about a 20 minute drive from the villa. Moxon's is perched on a cliff with a beach and 1 mile snorkeling reef within swimming distance. Snorkeling gear is available at no charge. For the more adventuresome, try rafting the Rio Grande, boating to Black Sands Beach and hiking to the Tacky Waterfall, exploring Cockpit Country or deep sea fishing with local fishermen. Or just kick back and relax around our new pool and be catered to by Cutty, Sharon and Racquel. Early mornings join Cutty as he goes down to the beach to pick up "the catch of the day" from local fishermen. Sharon's cuisine ranges from local to international. You are free to design your own menu.
Cabarita Lookout comfortably sleeps three families or three couples with extra beds available. The van and driver are available at all times during your stay. Whether you are looking for an active family vacation loaded with activities for you and your kids or just a quiet private getaway with friends, Cabarita Lookout promises memories you'll treasure forever.
Thinking of a romantic Caribbean wedding? While Cabarita Lookout is just 5 years old, we have hosted a number of weddings and a rehearsal dinner. I hope you’ll agree, the results were stunning. We have a wedding planner on staff, Verlie Carty, who has a fabulous Jamaican nursery filled with gorgeous tropical flowers. Our planner is also a talented maker of cakes and event coordinator. The weddings all included the ceremony with pastor, fabulous meal of lobster, Mahi Mahi and chicken, and dancing under the stars - and all at a modest price according to current American standards. And the wedding parties have been thrilled with the entire affair! If it is an elegant, romantic and private wedding you’re looking for, Cabarita Lookout may be your answer. Please feel free to call us or email us with your questions and desires.
About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
I have found my new home away from home. From the moment I stepped off the plane here and arrived at Cabarita Lookout I felt I belonged in Jamaica - its welcoming climate, landscape, and especially people delight all visitors. My favorite part of this trip was wandering into Port Maria and discovering its treasures. The vegetable market makes for the best meals and fresh fish can be purchased from the local fishermen and the oceanside bar is a great place to enjoy music. The Blisses are wonderfully accommodating and delightful in their stories. When I’m next able to come to this island I’ll look forward to staying at Cabarita Lookout and enjoy the spectacular views. Thanks for a great trip!

We had a fantastic time at Cabarita Lookout. Your home is lovely and what an incredible view!!! Cutty, Sharon and Devon were great. Cutty was so helpful planning our days and driving us around. We went to the Black Sands Beach/Waterfall, ate at Susie’s twice, went to the Reggae Beach and Craft Market, took a tour of Firefly and just spent some days relaxing by the pool. Sharon’s meals were perfect. We had three big fish eaters and three meat eaters and she was very accommodating. I loved the Rum Bread Pudding!
The Perfect Getaway
My husband and I just returned from a week at Cabarita Lookout where we stayed with friends. I have never had a better vacation and I will never stay anywhere else in Jamaica. In my opinion, Cabarita Lookout is the perfect place for families or groups of friends. The view from the terrace is breathtaking, with panoramic views of the ocean and the rugged coastline. Pictures just don't do it justice; you have to see it for yourself. The rooms are comfortable and spacious and the pool is gorgeous. It is really a tropical paradise. The staff is so accommodating and pleasant. Miss Sharon and Natalie made us the most delicious breakfasts and dinners. We had Cutty pick up fresh mahi mahi and lobster for dinner for two nights and Miss Sharon made curried goat and chicken stir fry two other nights. I strongly suggest eating dinner at the villa as much as possible. Miss Sharon is an excellent cook. Cutty also had many good suggestions for activities and drove us wherever we needed to go. I strongly suggest going to Reggae beach, which is between Ocho Rios and Port Maria. It costs 10 dollars US to get in, but you get a beach chair and great service right where you are sitting. We bought fresh coconuts with rum in them and had an excellent lunch of jerk chicken and fresh fish. It had such a great atmosphere that we went there twice. My other favorite activity was going to the Blue Hole, which is a series of freshwater waterfalls and deep pools of the most beautiful blue color. Our guide Jason lead us around and was so friendly and helpful. There is a rope swing, a cave under a waterfall, and waterfall you can climb down. It was really fun and it is relatively unknown so there were almost no tourists when we went (as opposed to Dunn River Falls which is always busy but still very fun). I loved that we were able to stay somewhere away from the resorts and that we got to see more of Jamaica and its culture. It really was the most perfect vacation and I will definitely be back.
Cabarita Lookout is the "Place to Be!'
My family stayed at Cabarita Lookout for a week during the month of May. Sure enough, Cutty was waiting for us as the Airport and took us back to Cabarita Lookout. And the views....we will never forget waking up every morning at 5:30 am just to watch the sunrise over the Caribbean Sea. Breakfasts were heavenly - Sharon and Natalie are fabulous and catered to whatever we wanted. Cutty was a generous host - you honestly will feel like you've known him forever. Dunn's River Falls was spectacular so was the ziplining. But, the best was getting the "real flavor" of the culture. Staying at a resort offers very limited taste's of Jamaica's true culture. However, staying at Cabarita Lookout, you get the real deal. Taking the boat to Blank Sands Beach and Tacky Falls was truly amazing. My son is 3 and he managed (thanks to Captain Bruce and Alfred.)
It was honestly very hard to leave...not just the vacation, but Cutty, Sharon, and Natalie. They are so caring, friendly, and warm-hearted. One of the best vacations our family every took!
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!
Our stay @ Cabarita Lookout
Our vacation was amazing!!! Cabarita Lookout is spectacular! Sharon, Cutty and Parson are the BEST! Everything was great, Sharon's cooking & desserts are to die for and Cutty is our new best friend, we'll never forget him. There was only 1 question he could'nt answer, it was immaterial anyway. Pam & Ed Bliss have to be an awesome couple. We will return and we will recomend this villa to our family & friends.
