Tamarind Studio Apartment with Swimming Pool and minutes from Ocho Rios
Description from the owner
Tamarind studio apartment is newly built and is situated next to the pool at the rear Almond Tree Villa, only minutes from the coast and Ocho Rios town centre.
It is designed with luxury in mind and will accommodate a single couple. It consists of a large bedroom area with a beautiful hard wood Mahogany floor, double bed, bed side tables, a flat screen Television, seating for two people and a powerful ceiling fan. The apartment will have Air conditioning from January 2015.
There is a spacious built in closet/wardrobe going through to the toilet/shower room.
The attractive granite topped kitchen is of a good size and fully equipped with everything needed for a self-catering holiday. There is a fridge with freezer, gas cooker/oven, micro wave, electric kettle, coffee maker, pots and pans and cutlery, plates and kitchen utensils.
The veranda looks out over the swimming pool and there is a table and chairs ideal for outdoor eating or simply relaxing.
Tamarind can either be rented separately by two people or can be taken as additional accommodation for large parties renting the villa, bringing the total occupancy to 13 people.
The pool is a recent addition to the property. Many of our guests had previously commented that a swimming pool was the only thing missing. Now our guests can spend many a relaxing day lazing around the pool on a sun lounger while sipping a cool drink as the kids play around in the water. The pool measures 25ft by 15ft and is ideal for children being only 3ft deep at the shallow end where the steps enter and 5ft at the deep end.
The pool is very private and secluded being situated in the back garden and of course you and your party will enjoy exclusive use along with any guests staying in Tamarind.
The lush gardens are filled with a variety of colourful flowers and plants. The various fruit trees include mango, orange, coconut, ackee and soursop.
Nigel the house manager
Our 'House Manager' Nigel resides on site in a self-contained apartment he shares with his partner Renee. Nigel maintains the gardens and the swimming pool and terrace to the highest of standards. Apart from security, which is one of his other roles at the property, he is always happy to offer his services as chef to ensure your holiday is enjoyed to the full.
Bed and Breakfast Option
Many of our guests prefer to book with breakfast included. Nigel charges separately for this service and offers great value for money. He is renowned for his cooking and what better way to start the day than with a good hearty Jamaican breakfast served outside on the Pool Terrace. You can pre-order a varied weekly breakfast menu by speaking to Nigel when you arrive.
Maid Service with Loraine
There is a maid service, which is included in the price of your holiday with Lorraine coming in twice a week to clean throughout and change bedding. Fresh towels are provided twice a week but please bring your own beach towels.
For those guests who want to get away from it all Loraine is also available to do your washing and ironing. For a very reasonable price she will wash and iron your clothes to a high standard. Guests are invited to make a private arrangement directly with Loraine.
If guests would prefer to do their own washing they can do so when either Nigel or Loraine are on hand to show them how to use the facilities. There is also a wash tub at the rear and an iron and ironing board are provided in both the villa and the apartment.
We offer airport transfer with our driver Junior from either Kingston or Montego Bay airports. Both airports are about 60 miles away. Please ask for a quote when booking. You will find our prices for airport pick up to be the most competitive.
Junior drives a Toyota Corolla hatchback that is licensed as a taxi and is always available to offer a very useful service to and from the property. You will have his mobile phone number and you can phone him whenever you need a drive back from 'Ochi' or from the nearest beach....Read more
