Luxurious Villa With The Best View In Ocho Rios! Villa Barbary!

Villa with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and swimming pool in Ridge Estates, Jamaica

From £2,583 per week

On 2 1/2 acres overlooking Ocho Rios & St. Ann's Bay, Barbary has the seclusion of a private estate just minutes from Ocho Rios and Jamaica's north shore. Sleeps 10 in comfort!

Overview

Set on top of the highest hill overlooking Ocho Rios, Villa Barbary is a gem at the top of the canopy. We are so high the neighborhood reservoir is on our property! The high ocean breezes keep the property cool on many of the warmest days.

There is a lovely pond outside the front door with water flowers and tilapia! Around the side of the yard is an extremely private pool where you and your family/friends can enjoy the tropical sun while sipping a rum punch!

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, private pool, full outdoor verdana, interior atrium open to the outdoors, living room, dining room, sun room, fully equipped kitched, devoted staff, on 2.5 acres at the top of the hill overlooking Ocho Rios, complete privacy .... The best view on the northern coast! What more could you ask for?!

The Master Bedroom has a lovely ensuite, a private balcony and a hand carved Jamaican Mahoghany bed. You don't even need to leave the bed to enjoy the fantastic view of the turquoise blue Caribbean! Or, you can leave the comfort of your pillow for a cup of Blue Mountain coffee on the balcony as you watch the cruise ships sail into the harbor.

The second bedroom upstairs is an ensuite with a king and a twin beds. The windows of this bedroom open wide to the phenomenal view of the ocean...and the wonderful breezes that can be enjoyed while resting in bed. The private bathroom includes a tub/shower, wc and sink - again, with a window to the ocean!

The upstairs also boasts a 'palm tree' bathroom for guests in the bedroom just down the stairs.

Taking the circular staircase to the 1st floor there are two additional bedrooms and a bathroom around the corner from the entry. One bedroom has a king and a twin - or three twins. The remaining bedroom boasts a queen size bed. Both downstairs bedrooms have windows and doors leading to the outside veranda!

The downstairs radiates out from an indoor atrium open to the stars (or the rain) above. The Sunroom (which boasts 50% glass walls) has seating for 6 on overstuffed wicker chairs and a wrought iron table with 6 chairs. In addition to the fantastic view the sunroom houses a flat screen tv and old movies on dvd and tape! The living room has an antique Jamaican mahogany secretary, a couch, loveseat and chair, and a game table with 4 chairs for a quick game of cards, enjoying a board game, or putting together one of over a dozen puzzles at the villa. It also has huge sliding glass doors with a view of the Caribbean from any seat!

There is a formal dining room with three sets of doors that open up to the side yard of the villa...and a fully equipped kitchen that includes a coffee pantry at its entrance. Cook for yourself, or arrange to have someone do the cooking for you.

The walls of the villa are decorated with carvings and paintings all secured from the markets in town. The villa has been decorated with the comfort and enjoyment of guests in mind. While 3 bedrooms have AC - it's usually not necessary with the breezes up from the ocean.

As the owner, I was delighted to host a wedding reception for my daughter and her new husband at the villa in the Fall of 2015. With a fantastic local band (reggae, ska, jazz and blues!), and catering from one of Ochies best authentic Jamaica restaurants - we hosted about 40 family and friends from Jamaica and the States....it was the perfect setting! And it could be yours....ask me about hosting a reception - or family reunion - at Villa Barbary.

From London, United Kingdom Feb 2009

A superb, very spacious property with wonderful views. The layout, with open courtyard and very well appointed public rooms and bedrooms provide a luxurious but relaxed environment.

The staff (cook, maid, gardener and security guard) are all extremely friendly and help to make the stay even more relaxed and comfortable.

The place, scenery and people providing the services were excellent. The villa was amazing - exquisite, large, cool, bright and airy rooms, etc. The place was peaceful during the days and nights and it could be an inspiration for writers and thinkers. The scenery was well above expectations, e.g. great view of Ocho Rios, the sea, cruise ships, and son on. However, what made the stay so wonderful were the staff who were so respectful, helpful, good company, and always down-to-earth. I only wished that we could have stayed longer. I would definitely consider booking the villa on future holidays. Well done!

I was part of the Sweeney party that came on 5th Nov 06, once I got used to the atrium and lizards coming in it was definitely somewhere I could stay for a longer period. Rossetta, Lorraine, George the security guard were absolutley wonderful and made use feel very welcome. George the gardener was so knowledgeable about the plants and the garden as a whole, we couldn't fault the service they provided and miss them lots. I really hope I can come back and see them. Beautiful house clean and well looked after, keep up the good work!

I stayed at Barbary last April - it was glorious. I enjoyed the privacy of the property and my family had a great time. When we wanted to play tourist we just walked into town...its easy going down hill! On the way back we hired a local taxi and in the meantime went to the beach, the casino, shopping and had the BEST Jamaican food! I will return!

This place is soemthing you dream about, once rented the place I wanted to call it my home. The environment is awesome, you have so much beauty to enjoy, you need a week to really take it all in. Ocho Rios is the place to be, Barbary completes anyones idea of a true vacation!

I've owned Barbary for over 8 years now. It is my favorite vacation destination! I love to relax at the villa and forget about the stresses back home. The staff have been with the villa much longer than we have and treat it as if it were theirs. George keeps the gardens and pool in gorgeous condition. We love to have guests enjoy the view, the amenities, the staff, and the ambiance of living in a Jamaican villa that sits on top of the world! Welcome!
