Two bedroom Ocean Front Villa, large patio set in a tropical garden is conveniently located between the resort towns of Ocho Rios and Runaway Bay on Jamaica's North Coast, and tucked away at Chukka Cove, Villa 1 provides unique access to a truly Jamaican experience. Far from pretentious, it is a warm and inviting "real" home set on a farm and hidden amidst pastures and lush foliage on the edge of dramatic ocean front cliffs in a rural setting.
Nothing like the mega all inclusives, it sits in a lovely groomed area shared with only five other villas. Here in the country you may wake up to the sound of roosters, and listen to the crickets and frogs songs at night. Of course, like all farms, the villa has its own resident cat fondly called "Puss" and the friendly neighbour dogs occasionally come for a visit.
So immerse yourself in the real Jamaica and soak your cares away in the turquoise waters of the cove or in the private pool used only by Chukka Cove villa residents. A safe place to vacation without being locked in a compound!
Your private paradise has a master and second bedroom both with full ensuite bathrooms. The master suite includes a separate living area with futon, desk and sliding doors out to a small covered balcony with an incredible ocean view, the perfect place for your morning coffee. We recommend 4 adults and 1 child.
Downstairs, the dining room boasts large folding doors that open onto an expansive furnished patio shaded by a passion fruit vine. A powder room, kitchen and laundry room complete the lower level.
The cliffs at Chukka Cove are dramatic and extensive, great for exploring or simply listening to the sound of the waves crashing ashore. On calm days, a ladder leads in cool clear waters.
On property is a small sandy cove, perfect and safe for young children to swim and play. On days when the sea swells are up and you seek calmer waters, a two minute walk along the edge of the polo field takes you to the spectacular Chukka Cove, a sheltered bay where the waters are always calm and cliff jumping, swimming and snorkeling are the order of the day.
