This villa is perfect for large groups as well as for couples. The bedrooms are located in their own areas of the house to allow amazing privacy to each couple. There’s air conditioning in the common areas as well as in the bedrooms. The beds were very comfortable. Each day we came home to clean towels and freshly made beds! The staff is remarkable taking time to cater to our every need! I will definitely stay here again!

“We had a wonderful time at the Ocean View Villa. The staff was incredible, keeping the place spotlessly clean. Millie (head of the household) was an amazing cook and kept our bellies very happy with mostly Jamaican dishes (oxtail, curry goat, fried dumplings, callaloo, lobster, rum punch, yum!). Her brown stew chicken is the best ever! But she’ll make whatever you want, The included van and driver was great. Our driver, Steve, was a wonderful tour guide, we would just tell him what we wanted to do the next day, and he would arrange everything for us. Plus, he was a careful driver (by Jamaican standards, anyway), and I didn’t fear for my life while on the road. The villa itself is in a small neighborhood at the top of a cliff, with a set of stairs down to the pebbly beach. You have to walk about 1 block to the top of the stairs, then climb down a long set of wide concrete steps. Overall, we had a great experience, and this place is highly recommended!”
Great location, spaciuos accommodation

A wonderful time and Pleasantly Surprised

We had a wonderful time at Ocean View Villa! The villa is great for family, the bedrooms rooms has plenty of space to spread out and offers lots of privacy. The beds are comfortable, and linens are of high quality, and the home is elegantly décor. The villa is located in a secure gated community and during our stay it was a pleasant surprise to see the security team stop by for random checks The staffs are excellent and worked diligently to make sure your vacation is a memorable. We were served complimentary refreshments, fruits and local chips for the kids upon arrival after a long day travelling. This was a most welcome surprise, as we had stayed at other villas in Jamaica before and never received this type of additional service. The pool area with the extended deck area was perfect, we would spend lots of time on the deck while our children swim or played on the grass. The nearby beach and the river are perfect for quite time and relaxation, the kids search for sea glass. The beach is absolutely wonderful for the kids. The location could not be better — quiet and peaceful and gorgeous views and only a few minutes from the top attractions in Ocho Rios.
Beyond our Expectations

We arrived fairly late at night after our flights was delayed, so it was such a pleasant surprise when we arrived to have refreshments and a hot home cooked meal waiting at the villa. This villa is amazing! The picture does not do it justice. From the location of the property, to the ground itself, everything was perfect. The villa is within a quiet peaceful neighborhood, gated secure community suited our needs in terms of size, privacy, comfort and the location meant we could travel anywhere along the north coast to try out any of the beautiful beaches during the day. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation and leave with some lovely memories of our stay at this villa, which provided all the comfort and convenience of a top hotel but with the privacy and flexibility required by a group of adults with mixed needs. We also felt very safe throughout our stay which was due to security of the complex. Millicent was fantastic she went above and beyond our expectations every day. We were as sad to leave her as were to leave Jamaica and end our vacation The staff and owner were very professional, and responsive. Peaceful and pleasing, Jamaica Ocean View Villa definitely exceeded all expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jamaica Ocean View Villa.
The experience at the Villa was phenomenal

The experience at the Villa was phenomenal. The place itself was very welcoming and the location was entrenched strategically in a private area that provided comfort, but also made me feel that I was amongst the general populace. The scenic cliff side and the wonderful river that fed into the Ocean at the beach was a highlight that added to the experience. The food prepared by Millicent was taste bud engaging and definitely gave the Jamaican authenticity I desired. Shout out to my favorite dish, the Callaloo!!!! The upkeep of the villa was up to par as well with no unusual instances of cleanliness that raised eyebrows. As for the personnel, everyone was professionally withdrawn but also actively engaged and helpful when needed. Our driver Rudy, was the navigational informant with limitless knowledge of the beaches, restaurants, and other places of interest. Without doubt, he ensured our safe arrival and departure from the airport and all throughout Jamaica. Lindo (sp?) showed the guys a great time. He was the informational guru when it came to showing us the night life entertainment and the hot spots to watch the Basketball Finals. The Villa facilitated a harmonious environment conducive for family bonding.
Warmth, Friendly and Attentive staff

We had a fabulous stay at Jamaica Ocean View Villa the house is beautiful and the on-site staff all looked after us extremely well. On arrival at the villa the staff welcomed us with a selections of complimentary refreshments and fresh fruits ( bottled water, soda, red stipe beers and rum punch). The house is decorated to a high standards throughout., The bedrooms are very large nicely furnished and luxury bathrooms, air conditioned, tv etc. The linens are of good quality and the housekeeper clean daily. The living room is spacious, the downstairs recreation room has pool table and game table for kids, which we took advantage of in the evenings. We spend lots of time outside as it was so nice to be outside around the pool area where we enjoyed numerous cocktails, beers and rums. The villa offers transportation available, – We visited Dunns River Falls, White River, Mystic Mountain and Dolphin Cove which are all within easy reach of the villa. We also explored downtown Ocho Rios and visited the supermarket a few times with Millie for essential supplies.
Delightful Family Affair

My family from the USA met up with those on the island and had a family reunion of sorts… they were all amazed by the house and the staff were more than welcoming. We were able to get directions to local hidden treasures… Blue Hole, Little Dunn’s River and more from the staff, all of which were fantastic. The staff (Stacey, Ricardo, and Sonita) were led by Ms. Millicent, the house manager, were all fantastic and the food they prepared was soooo good,my family requested the same meals two days in a row. The house was just as the pictures portrayed them, if not better. The walk to the community beach was short and the gated community afforded us the ability to jog/walk close by.
