Wow - what a holiday! We have just spent Christmas at Rainbow Tree and had a wonderful time - in fact it's probably been our best holiday ever. There were 9 in our group including five children aged from 6 to 13 years. We wanted a holiday that would cater for everyone and Rainbow Tree and Treasure Beach didn't disappoint. From the moment we were picked up from the airport by aman we knew the holiday was going to be good. If you like experiencing the true feeling of a country then Treasure Beach is the perfect place. Rainbow Tree was incredibly comfortable and spacious with a glorious view of the sea and beach. Miss Laura and Miss Jenny prepared the most wonderful Jamaican food and made sure we had everything we needed at all times. Calvin was so helpful and made sure our stay was picture perfect. Here are a few of our favourite things: 1. The people - Aman, Miss Laura, Miss Jenny, Calvin and their friends and family made us feel so at home in their glorious country 2. Jumping into crystal clear rivers from rope swings 3. Watching our children flying through rainforests and over waterfalls 4. Enjoying a chilled Red Stripe ...at the Pelican Bar (a bar in the ocean!), at Jack Sprats, on the beach and at Malcolms bar! 5. Jerk pork, chicken and lobster 6. The view from the veranda at Rainbow Tree - beach, ocean, sunsets and stars 7. Picking up chilli shrimp on the way back from YS falls 8. Crab at Sister Lous 9. Our beach bonfire 10. Experiencing the vibrancy of life in St Elizabeth
“A Wedding in Paradise!!!”
Rainbow Tree is a beautiful, rustic jewel in the small fishing village in Treasure Beach. The wrap around covered veranda is a wonderful place to spend a morning or evening, while the calm, sandy beach is a perfect place to spend the day. You could waste hours reading in the hammock under the tree or lounging by the pool. The whole house felt open and comfortable with a near constant sea breeze. The aC units chilled the bedrooms nicely for sleeping, though we were instead tempted to open all the windows to the sea breeze.. The house itself is gorgeous with good size bedrooms, bathrooms, and lots of nice big windows to enjoy stunning views. The staff was attentive and kind. Miss Laura and Miss Jenny are fantastic cooks - everything we ate was so fresh and wonderful! If you like being surrounded by nature, then this is a perfect place for you. The Kennedy family was very helpful with everything from directions to recommendations of places to eat or tours to take, etc. We had our wedding at Rainbow Tree in December, and it was the most perfect wedding we could have ever imagined. It is a magical place to get married.. There were 7 of us staying at the villa for a week and it was the ideal combination of a vacation and wedding. The wedding service was quite formal and elegant, and it was in a beautiful tropical setting with gorgeous flowers and plants everywhere. To have our wedding in such a beautiful place was a dream come true. Karen and Peter Kennedy as well as local staff done everything they could to make our day special. They looked after everything from the flowers to the music, and so we were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings right up to the wedding. At sunset, we had the wedding on the beach and it was a truly magical experience. If you are considering a destination wedding, we highly recommend Rainbow Tree. Staying here will be one of the best decisions you ever make. Truly a gem and we feel so lucky to have been there.
This is the second time I have stayed at Rainbow Tree, and the first time with our young twins. Rainbow Tree is an excellent place to experience life in Jamaica and not feel like a tourist. Miss Laura and Miss Jenny somehow have a knack of knowing when they are needed and when they are not. They have been doing this for a long time, and it shows. The food is excellent. They cook up real Jamaican food, and they will taylor the menu to what you like. We had lobster a couple of times, excellent jerk chicken, and ackee and salt cod for breakfast. Best of all, you will eat most of your meals on the veranda, with the fresh air, views of the ocean, sounds of the birds, and latticed shade. The jasmine was in bloom during our stay, so the aroma filled the veranda. There is a lot of space at Rainbow Tree: 5 bedrooms, plenty of indoor space, and of course the wrap-around veranda. Our twins loved to race around the entire veranda. And the grounds feel expansive, too: the pool and its shady palapas, the grass, the hammock, and the steps down to the beach. The villa is located on a cove, so the beach is somewhat narrow. There is a reef that protects the beach from heavy surf, and the snorkeling is pretty good. The entire Treasure Beach community is friendly to visitors. There are no resorts here, so if you are looking for a resort, then Treasure Beach may not be your place. If you want to add some adventures to the relaxation, then I definitely recommend Floyd's Pelican Bar, a bar built of sticks located in the ocean. Other worthwhile adventures include YS Falls, a boat trip up the Black River, or a tour of the appleton rum distillery. I know that I will be going back, and it appears from other reviews here that this is a commonly shared opinion from people who stay at Rainbow Tree. Right now a common greeting amongst Jamaicans is "Respect!" If the kind of respect shown in these reviews resonates with you, then you will enjoy it.
This trip marked the fourth consecutive year my family and I have made the trek to Treasure Beach and Rainbow Tree (some of us all the way from Norway) and each year we are reminded why it is among our favorite spots in the world. Miss Jenny, Miss Laura, Calvin and aman look after us as they would their own family, not only taking care to ensure we are well fed (the coconut cream pie! the lobster! the banana pankcakes!) but also helping arrange whatever we needed: bicycles to rent, rides to and from Jake's and Jack Sprat, and even tips on how to calm stubbornly itchy mosquito bites. Aman is an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide and the unofficial mayor of Treasure Beach. In four trips, I've done most all of the available excursions and he knows someone at every destination. Trust his dining recommendations, too -- he knows what he's doing. He is well versed in Jamiacan politics, government and history and happily answers any questions about either. The accomodations at Rainbow Tree Villa are top-notch and it doesn't take long for the place to feel like home. Our most recent trip included nine people and the house is expansive enough for us to spread out and relax as we each saw fit, without feeling crowded or in each other's way. If you are looking for maximum relaxation in a gorgeous, peaceful setting, then Rainbow Tree is the right place.
“The best vacation you will ever have.”
My family and I had the best vacation experience of our lives at Rainbow Tree. The property and the view are breathtaking. Everything is clean and in good working condition with every detail taken care of. I took a nap in a hammock hanging from the branches of an almond tree overlooking the sea. But the staff are the real gems here. They not only prepare wonderful local cuisine and care for your every need, they also are exremely warm and friendly and make you feel like family. My son was invited to go play soccer (football) by some of the local boys and they all treated him like an old friend. It had a real impact on his view of the world. Have the driver (extra cost) take you to Floyd's Pelican Bar and the Black River tour by boat, and to YS Falls and the appleton Rum factory tour by car. Ask the grounds keeper to take you fishing on the coral reef and to make a night bonfire on the beach (and tip extra for these). The private pool is really private while offering an excellent view of the sea. The owners were very accurate in their descriptions and explanations. Just follow their advice and you won't be disappointed! We're definitely going back and will be bringing friends and family.
I am a returning guest since 2002. I have stayed both with friends and with family for times ranging from 1 to 3 weeks. The service is friendly beyond compare. The food is delicious and plentiful. The accomodations are relaxing and comforting. I have stayed here all different times of the year and always cry when I'm leaving. If you want to relax - this is the place, no pressure and no worries just a quiet peaceful beach, luxurious pool and view out of this world. I hope to go at least once a year the rest of my life!
One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. The home is beautiful and the staff is catering but not overbearing. Probably the most relaxing two weeks of my life. Definitely will be going back!
“Glorious Destination Wedding and Relaxing Vacation all in One”
I don't even know where to start...there is so much to rave about (in a good way, of course!). We got married at this beautiful villa, and every detail was taken care of by the beautiful and kind people who work here, as well as by many of the amazing residents of Treasure Beach. Everything that could have been done was done to make, not just our special day as unforgettable as possible, but our whole two week stay at this magical place. The first week, we had some of our wedding party staying at Rainbow Point, the smaller of the two Rainbow Tree Villas, as well as ourselves and others from our wedding party staying at Rainbow Tree. I can't even begin to describe the warmth we felt from the beginning from the staff, who quickly became friends throughout the stay. Not to mention the amazing beach and pool, which would put any resort to shame. We certainly hope to be return visitors. We had an amazing combination of complete relaxation, a bit of adventure (Floyd's and the Black River, and I went on an amazing bird tour), family fun (with 3 little ones under the age of 5, somehow we all still managed to relax!), etc. I can't recommend it enough!
My second trip to Rainbow Tree Villa in December 2010 was just as lovely as my first in 2009. My family and I love the seclusion and comfort of this magnificent home and the delightful and friendly people we encounter in Treasure Beach. The amazing staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, even during the Christmas-New Year holiday week we were there. Our group consisted of 6 adults with varying interests and we had no problems keeping ourselves as occupied (or unoccupied) as we wished. The food is amazing, the sunsets spectacular and service perfect and unobtrusive. Many thanks to the Kennedy family for sharing this unique part of the world. We absolutely plan to return as many times as we can.
“An absolutely amazing vacation at a beautiful villa.”
I can truly say that our time at Rainbow Tree was the most relaxing and memorable vacation that anyone in our family has ever had. The staff there went out of their way to ensure that everyone had the best time possible. Our mornings began with fresh coffee on the veranda overlooking the ocean and then a lovely breakfast prepared by Miss Laura and Miss Jenny. Mornings were spent exploring the beautiful beach and reef protected water front just below the villa. Afternoons were spent lazing by and playing in the private pool. Evenings were for playing board games and lying outside looking at the brilliant stars. The ladies made sure that we had delicious meals three times a day, and that the cooler was always well stocked with whatever beverages made us happy. Both of our families (four adults and three children aged 14, 10 and 9) had a wonderful time and enjoyed the various outings that we arranged with the staff immensely. Our boat trip up the Black River and to Floyd's Pelican Bar was a load of fun, as was our trip to YS Falls. The bonfire that Calvin the groundskeeper set up on the beach below the villa for our last night there was a truly memorable experience and one that our children still talk about. My husband and I had been to Jamaica five times before this (in Negril), and could not believe the difference between the busy resort scene that we were used to, and the relaxed lifestyle that we found at Treasure Beach. We took a 1.5 mile walk from Rainbow Tree down the road past many local houses and villas, and were not once stopped by any vendors. We were absolutely amazed by how truly friendly everyone was. I can not recommend this absolutely beautiful villa enough, and loved it so much that we rebooked our next vacation at Rainbow Tree immediately after getting home last year.
