Description of the Ocho Rios vacation villa rental
OCHO RIOS AREA VACATION VILLA Your own beach rental on the beautiful Caribbean Sea offers choices to keep families and friends together on just about any vacation budget. There simply is no better way to experience Jamaica at its best - meeting the people who make it so.

Doctors Villa offers choices for your vacation with the emphasis on safety, relaxation, and fun. With two seaside patios, 4 bedrooms with attached bathrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, living room, and 3 dining areas inside and out, you have plenty of space on two floors even before you head out to the hammock on the seaside terrace or down the steps to our 300 ft. sandy beach. John's the caretaker/security man, and together with the optional services of Paulette - cook, housekeeper & babysitter - Leona's therapeutic massage, and drivers Duncan or Deano, you have the choice of all the pampering you may want. It's the attention of our people that makes us unique - our people, and our location on the sea. Opt for a driver to come for you or rent your own vehicle for the easy drive from MBJ.

Know that when you get there, your previously selected arrival meal will be ready and the kitchen will be stocked with cold drinks and groceries for breakfast the next day so you needn't stop en route. You just get there and don't even worry about paying for the groceries until you've changed your money for Jamaican dollars the next day. Drop your bags and go straight down the steps for a swim in the sea, rinse off in the outdoor shower and you're ready for a Red Stripe or a coconut rum with pineapple juice - Ting for the kids - as dinner is served.

You'll quickly come to love Paulette's tasty dishes and possibly decide you'd rather not be in the kitchen at all. Experience the mellow smoothness of Blue Mountain Coffee, fresh-squeezed OJ and a morning swim in the warm, clear waters of the Caribbean - on your schedule. Snorkelers will be amazed at the colorful corals and fish on the 2nd largest reef system in the world, just a 15-minute swim from the beach. Treat yourself to a therapeutic massage within the sound of the (real!) waves on the upper seaside patio, relax in the hammock with a Red Stripe and plan your daily excursions, or don't. Alternatively, take advantage of the opportunity to save money by booking the place as 'room only' and take care of your own cooking and housekeeping, with Paulette just a phone call away in case you change your mind. Go to the market, join in a street dance or walk to the shops at the end of the road for ice cream, beer, groceries, walk a little further up the hill to the area jerk center, meet the people - they may surprise you with their helpful, friendly welcome natures. Chances are, they know Doctor's family, John or Paulette and are pleased to show Doctors Villa guests how special they are, how safe the neighborhood, how easy it is to take a local 'taxi' into town.

Area Information
Amenities include private sandy beach with sun and shade options, free internet, Wi-Fi, hammock, charcoal bbq, DVD's, books, board games, a locked/gated driveway with parking for 6, and sea views that can't be beat. It's like coming home, only better!

Our nearest city, Ocho Rios, is 14 miles west of the villa, and offers everything a tourist town should: tropical gardens, restaurants, craft markets, duty free shopping, cinemas, swim with dolphins, Mystic Mountain's zip lines and Jamaican Bobsled run, and the stunning and climbable Dunn's River Falls - still the #1 reason why visitors 'make it Jamaica'. Also in the area is an 18-hole golf course, downhill mountain biking, horseback riding on the beach, Prospect Plantation with its historical jitney tours, Rio Nuevo's coastal gun emplacements, beautiful Blue Hole, Fern Gully, catch-and-eat fish farming, public Bamboo, Groovy and James Bond beaches, Water Land, Calypso Rafting, and peaceful White River inner-tubing. The farmer's markets in Ocho Rios and Oracabessa are worth a visit whether shopping for the evening's meal or just taking interesting photos.

Sharing the Caribbean Riviera shoreline with Beaches Ocho Rios, guests at Doctors Villa can participate in the resort's offerings at an additional cost if chlorine is needed ($100/day/adult, $50-75/kids, 10 am - 6 pm).

So much to see and do in this, one of the largest and arguably most beautiful of the Caribbean Islands. The tropical year-round climate is softened with sea breezes, early morning showers, and happy smiling Jamaican faces. Make Doctors Villa your north coast home base but drive around and check out other parts of the island as well. Negril on the West coast has the renowned sunsets of Rick's Cafe; the lush tranquility of Port Antonio on the East coast is often overlooked by tourists but a favorite for Jamaicans in the know; and the exciting and beautiful up & coming areas around Black River and Treasure Beach on the South coast are not as easy to access but worth every pothole. There's something for everyone which keeps so many of us foreign yardies - Jamaicans living abroad - and others returning to this island paradise whenever we can.
