QUIET & ROMANTIC SEASIDE COTTAGE 1 MILE FROM TOWN CENTRE

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Ocho Rios

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3)

The cottage at Te Moana shares a landscaped 1-acre waterfront lot with owners Peter & Annabella Proudlock’s home. Only one mile from the centre of Ocho Rios, yet a world away, Te Moana offers an idyllic escape from the real world.

The property is perched on a cliff 30 ft above the Caribbean Sea, which is accessed by steps over smooth rocks to a sandy swimming area. The adjacent reef provides shelter from the waves and interesting snorkeling. Complementary single and double kayaks are a fun way to explore the coastline. Passing fishing canoes offer a motorized alternative. There is a sunbathing/sunset-watching deck just above the sea., and a more private yoga platform, sheltered by a small island. Four reasonably well-behaved dogs and three rather shy cats provide the requisite security, but will not intrude unless invited. The fourth cat, Kayak, is resident in the cottage, but welcomes visitors warmly. There are two well-stocked grocery stores, and a beach within easy walking distance.

The Cottage is completely self-contained, with its own entrance and small garden, located on the sea. Downstairs is spacious (366 sq.ft/34 sq.m) and houses the fully equipped kitchen with wall safe, living area with dining table, sleeping alcove with single/day-bed, bathroom with in/outdoor shower, and the water heater.

Terracotta tiles and wicker furniture are attractive and functional, while the walls are adorned with part of Peter & Annabella’s eclectic art & craft collection. The 24' x 9' (7.3 x 2.7 m) verandah boasts 2 hammocks, 2 chairs and another dining table.

The bedroom (330 sq.ft/31 sq.m), accessed by an external staircase, has an Indian feel with a view that is 100% Caribbean. There is a king-sized bed, sitting area, small balcony and shower room. A flat-panel LCD television carries 100+ TV and 60+ radio channels.

Rumours that, on a clear day, you can see Cuba remain unconfirmed, although it does appear possible. Ceiling fans and the trade winds provide all the necessary cooling.

The garden has a cliffside deck with bench for relaxing sundowners. Steps lead down to a grotto, where the kayaks are kept, and on to a bridge and more steps.

We had a wonderful time at the sea side cottage! We really wanted a secluded, ocean front vacation where our biggest challenge was deciding between a hammock and a lawn chair. THIS WAS IT! We split our time doing touristy things (Blue Hole -- a must --, Prospect Plantation, Harmony Hall, Blue Mountain bike tour) and reading and swimming/snorkeling. We would wake up, read for a while, swim for a while, take a nap, read, swim and repeat! You have easy access to great snorkeling right off the property plus kayaks. The view is beautiful and like so many other people state, the pictures on the website do not do justice, this property is gorgeous! The property is semi-secluded so you don't feel like you are a tourist being hounded by people and a quick taxi ride into town and you do all the touristy things if you want. The owners and staff are extremely nice and welcoming (they went to the grocery for us before we arrived so we had food). If you are looking for a beach vacation with our own private beach front BOOK NOW!

A little piece of paradise

We spent two weeks in the Seaside Cottage of Te Moana. Since we chose it by finding it on the internet we hoped that the difference between pictures and reality is not too big. We were not dissappointed. Quite the opposite. We arrived at night and when we woke up in the morning we couldn't believe how beautiful it was. You open your eyes and you see lush green plants and trees and the ocean. A mild breeze fills the room of the very open built wooden house. You enter this house and you have a feeling of peace and quiet overcoming you.
The cottage has its own backyard, nicely landscaped and cleaned by the gardener. Walk a few steps down and you reach the private sundeck, covered partly by a tree for some shade. It also gives you easy access to the sea. Perfect for swimming, snorkeling and also boating, kajaks are provided for free. Grab a beer and watch the sun go down.

Things to consider:
If you are allergic to cats you might have a problem to tell "Kayak" - one of the three cats, but the only one you would see - not to stay at the cottage while you are there.
There are four dogs watching the property. They are nice dogs and they won't be in the cottages yard. They and many other dogs in the neighbourhood are a pain at night and in the morning when they start a barking session.
Sometimes the waves are higher and break at the reef which makes quite some noise and might bother some people. We definitely preferred it to the barking though!

Inside the house everything is pretty clean and you find all you need. Linens, towels and beachtowels are provided and changed every five days if you stay longer than a week. If you need anything else you can always ask the owners or the housekeeper living on the property. If you plan on some serious cooking you probably have to bring some things along.

It was our first time to Jamaica and we were very glad about the help we got from the owners friend staying there (the owners were abroad at that time). Thanks Ryan! It made things a lot easier for us.
We had a rental car which gave us the opportunity to see all different places of the island. It makes you independent of any taxis or tour busses.

We did quite some travelling all over the world so far but the seaside cottage was definitely one of the best and most beautiful spots we stayed at. Highly recommendable!

What a find!

We just got back from 10 days in the seaside cottage of Te Moana. It was an amazing visit. To wake up to the view and sound of the sea each morning right outside your bedroom window is beyond words. Peter and Annabella are wonderful hosts – very warm and welcoming. When we arrived, we had a list of things we wanted to do in the area. However, we had such a hard time leaving the house, view, sea and the excellent snorkeling right in our own yard that we spent most of the vacation right at the house. We got to snorkel with stingrays. I would bring bug spray. There aren’t any screens on the windows that really adds to the experience but also adds some mosquitos. They provide citronella candles and electronic mosquito repellents that really do work. I would highly recommend this home! This vacation was absolutely perfect. Thank you!

Simply Breathtaking!!!!!

My husband and I have always wanted to visit Jamaica and we're able to find a reason to go this year. My husband's best friend decided to have their wedding in Ocho Rios. They chose to do the all-inclusive at Sandals resort, where they offered the wedding packages. But Chirs and I have always loved staying at local cottages in all of our travels. So we found this one on VRBO.com and we were in awe with this place from the moment we saw it online. Although, pictures do not do it justice, our stay at Te Moana - Seaside Cottage was simply one of the most amazing, beautiful, and adventurous vacations we have ever been on! Our time here was definitely entirely too short! The cottage itself was everything and more that we thought and hoped it would be! We loved the peacefulness of the cottage. It was so relaxing to lay in the hammock in the shade or lay in the lounger to catch some sun, most usually with a little Jamaican Rum in my hand!! ;) Shorts walks through town or the market were so enjoyable and catching a taxi was a breeze! We loved the swimming area and the dock. We live on a lake in Oklahoma, and it reminded us a little of home in that sense. Everyone, Anabella, Peter, and all their staff were extremely gracious and so kind to share themselves and wonderful recommendations with us! Harmony Hall and Tuscaini's is a must see and dine in, while you are there. Beautiful art work and delicious food!!! And, Anabella, I am so proud of my gifts that I got from you before we left. All who were lucky enough to get one, loves them dearly! Thank you! I cannot not wait to return to Ocho Rios and would definitely stay in the Seaside Cottage again. As of this moment, I am trying to talk my mother and father into going to Jamaica and staying here as well. It is definitely highly recommended! I loved loved loved our time here!!!
