About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Nestled in the heart of Jamaica's tourism Mecca, Ocho Rios is a secluded beachfront resort. The 'Jamaican-Getaway' Penthouse condominium provides all the amenities and comfort of home and much more.

Enjoy the picturesque views of Ocho Rios Bay from your own private terrace off the Master Suite. Wake up to the sun-kissed blue skies and fresh clean Caribbean breeze. This is truly paradise!

If you are in the mood to experience the warmth of the Jamaican culture, you are simply within walking distance to lively nightlife, movies, casinos, restaurants, shopping and approximately one mile from the world famous Dunn's River Falls and Dolphin Cove.

A few steps through the tropical gardens and across a small promenade are the golden sands of Turtle Beach. There you will find an extensive choice of water sport activities ranging from scuba diving to deep sea fishing. Or if you prefer just basking in the warm Jamaican sunshine, lounging next to the pool, watching the kids make sand castles on the glistening white sandy beach. It's your getaway, the choice is yours!

Best Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This exquisite tastefully decorated condo was paradise! Waking up to the sunrise and fresh sea breeze was priceless I slept like a baby and everything I needed was there to suit my comfort. Rachael was beyond hospitable! She made my arrangements for my car rental and ensured that my stay was everything that I desired.

Being in the heart of Ocho Rios, I had experienced the best Jamaica had to offer – the nightlife, the people, the delectable cuisine- overall the culture. Simply amazing!!! This getaway was well-deserved but the experience is a must-have! See you in the near future, Rachael!

Ocho rios

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect. Near to some great attractions. Very close to the beach and some lovely nearby evening venues like Margaritaville and Oceans 11. Apartment had good amenities and a lovely view overlooking the sea.would definitely stay here again. The only downside was the sandcastles life guard and pool rules were too strict which spoiled a lot of families fun as you were not allowed to use the pool slide or jump or dive in the pool even though it was 9ft at the deep end. We witnessed lots of families being told off on their first dsy for doing this and being disappointed.

Words can’t describe our stay, you just have to experience it for yourself! Absolutely one of the best beachfront resorts in the heart of Ocho Rios. A true Jamaican bliss within walking distance to the nightlife, movies, shopping and dining. The Penthouse suite was impeccable and clearly exceeded our expectation. Waking up to the view of the Ocean and relaxing on the balcony in the morning was breathtaking. The sunset is second to none. How can we forget about the staff, and services. Our airport driver (Jimmy) was great not to mention Rachael who took care of everything to make our stay memorable. We were sad to leave, it was a visit to paradise. Then again, we have already made reservation to return :-).
