High standard accommodation at surprisingly low rates
Whether your booking is for a single person, a couple or a larger group of family or friends you will no doubt be looking for that somewhere special to spend your time in Jamaica. If you are looking for high standard, self-catering, rental accommodation close to Ocho Rios, you have just found the perfect holiday retreat. We offer everything you might possibly need for that perfect vacation at prices everyone can afford.
Safe and secure environment
You will be staying in a very safe and secure environment in the quiet leafy neighbourhood of Eltham. Almond Tree Villa and the three studio apartments, Tamarind, Pimento and Cinnamon are situated together in Selbourne Gardens which is an upscale private estate inside a gated community.
The apartments are built at the rear of the villa around the pool.
Close to Ocho Rios and beaches
You will be away from the hustle and bustle of Ocho Rios yet only three miles and literally a ten minute drive into the centre of the exciting tourist resort. There are several really nice beaches within a few miles of the properties.
Lovely swimming pool
Always kept pristine and crystal clear the pool is a favourite with everyone, young and old. The Swimming pool and the pool terrace are in a private and secluded position being situated in the back garden and are only shared by the guests in the villa and the three apartments.
Our guests can spend their time relaxing and lazing around the pool on a sun lounger while sipping a cool drink or two or perhaps eating outside under the umbrellas on the picnic tables by the poolside. 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.
You will find all our staff always ready to help you get the most from your holiday. Please feel welcome to ask for any assistance or anything you need.
If you need help with any small problem that might arise or if you need any advice please speak to any of the staff, Nigel, Chupsy, Renee or Junior. They will all do their best to assist you.
Our driver Junior helps us oversee everything at the villa and you will find him a big help.
Our ‘Caretaker/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.
Nigel is always available to cook breakfast or any other meal on request.
Cleaning and maid service
There is a maid service that is already included in the price of your holiday.
For stays of 8 nights or over our cleaner Chupsy will arrange to come in roughly half way through your stay to clean throughout and change bedding.
For bookings of 7 nights or less Chupsy will come prior to your arrival and after your departure only.
Fresh towels are supplied and replaced twice a week but please bring your own beach towels for use outside on the pool terrace.
For those guests who want to get away from it all Chupsy is also available to do your washing and ironing. Guests are invited to make a private arrangement directly with Chupsy.
If guests would prefer to do their own washing they can do so when either Nigel or Chupsy are on hand to show them how to use the washing machine. Guests are given complimentary free wash loads and additional washes will be charged at $500 JA per wash load. There is also a wash tub that guests are welcome to use. Each property has its own iron and ironing board.
We offer airport transfer with our driver Junior from either Kingston or Montego Bay airports. Both airports are about 60 miles away but Montego Bay is a much easier drive and a cheaper option.
Please ask for a quote when booking. You will find Junior’s prices for airport pick up to be the most competitive.
Junior drives a Toyota Noah 8 seat bus and is always available to offer a very useful service to and from the villa. 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.
Tours and longer trips
Junior is also an excellent tour guide with a wealth of knowledge of all things Jamaican. Please ask him for a quote to drive you literally anywhere on the island.
