Swimming Pool. 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 gardens. The lush gardens that surround the villa 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 at the rear of the property 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 villa, 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. Your party can pre-order a varied weekly breakfast menu by speaking to Nigel when you arrive at the villa.
Using the villa for outside parties and Wedding Receptions
The gardens are ideal for outdoor parties and we have previously held a number of small wedding receptions at the villa that have been a great success. Whether you would like to have a little get together with old friends you have in Jamaica or use the gardens for a reception we will be happy to help out.
There will be a small but very reasonable charge to use the villa and gardens as a venue when guests wish to invite other friends and family into the grounds for such an event.
We are also happy to organize weddings at the beautiful setting of Dermott’s beach which is only a mile from the villa. Please ask Neil for further details.
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 the villa 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.
