Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Silver Sands Jamaica - Villa EbbTide at Silver Sands

EbbTide 4 bedrooms, 4 ensuite bathrooms, one with both tub and shower. Sleeps 10

EbbTide boasts a spectacular beachfront view. Located at the water's edge on a small, quiet, powdery white sand beach just west of Silver Sand's magnificent main beach. We call this 'Our Little Beach' and sshhhhh, it's EbbTide's secret!!

EbbTide is within easy walking distance of the main beach, yet secluded enough to chill and let loose on your own steam away from the madding crowd on the main beach. The perfect opportunity to refresh your spirit and revitalize mind and body!

EbbTide is large and airy and oozes comfort and inviting Caribbean hospitality. Sliding glass doors, cathedral ceilings, lush tropical foliage, beautifully appointed rooms and a caring, pampering staff all ensure a vacation you've been dreaming about all these years. Relax, enjoy and drink it all in!

Villa EbbTide at Silver Sands : EbbTide is a beautiful, spacious and comfortable holiday villa set in a lush, tropical garden and ideally located on the beach at Silver Sands, Jamaica. This charming home away from home offers four air-conditioned bedrooms, each with its private bathroom, and a large, airy living and dining area strategically positioned to allow maximum benefit from the prevailing trade winds. All rooms are additionally equipped with ceiling fans. At EbbTide furnishings, wall colours and decorative accents have all been carefully selected to reflect the Caribbean vernacular of laid-back, understated elegance and warm, inviting Jamaican hospitality.

The seaside trellised patio, complete with cotton hammock and lounge chairs, is great for al fresco dining, sun tanning or evening cocktails .. even wedding receptions, which EbbTide has delighted in hosting! After all, what better backdrop to your perfect day could there be than a fiery-gold sun sinking into the silky pink water!

Our Staff: A holiday at EbbTide includes the services of our manager/cook, Charm and housekeeper, Hyacinth. They will prepare and serve all daily meals and leave after the evening meal is over. Charm is a sunny personality and gourmet Jamaican cook. Indeed her lobster in garlic sauce, roast pork and Jamaica-style fried fish are to die for. And did we mention her banana bread and key lime pie? Charm and Hyacinth manage the affairs of the house with tact and efficiency and will ensure that your vacation is hassle-free and perfect in every way. They will make arrangements for groceries and produce to be delivered to the villa should you not wish to make the trek into the village yourself. They will also be only too happy to arrange with our friendly roster of tour guides for daily excursions or with masseuses or manicurists for your pampering pleasure! Remember, it is their pleasure to fit in seamlessly with YOUR schedule..please do not hesitate to let them know all your preferences.

A Cut Above The Rest!: What makes a vacation at Villa EbbTide so special?

Perhaps it is the extra nuances, the finer attention to detail that makes all the difference...like our refreshing Welcome Cocktail, spiked or juicy, but just the ticket to take the edge off your jetlag!

Or the thoughtful touches like the wall-mounted hairdryers and magnified make-up mirror to quickly transform you from Beach Bum to Tropical Diva!

Or perhaps it is the discreet turn-down service each evening, with a dark, moist chocolate placed on your pillow, just to make you know that your presence is welcome!

It's simply EbbTide's way of saying 'You are special, and we're delighted to have you!'

The perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

I am a Jamaican living in Texas. I spent a week at Ebb Tide in October 2009 with my family and we all had the time of our lives. The house was perfect for our needs. With me were my adult children, their significant others, my mother and my wife. Four bedrooms and four bathrooms made everybody happy.

My wife spent countless hours scouring the beach, a few steps off the back patio, in search of shells. Needless to say we hauled a good load of shells back to Texas. My mother was in seventh heaven sitting on the patio sipping rum and coconut water. The younger generation spent a lot of time exploring the area, building sand castles, playing ping pong not to mention having long conversations with the bar tender at the main beach. I must admit that I was in on some of this.

Oh the main beach. You will not find a better beach anywhere in the world.

The staff at EbbTide are so wonderful that I wanted to take them home with me. Every meal that I ate was top class. Being a Jamaican most of my requests were my favorites from my youth. Those in the family that had never been to Jamaica before were equally enthusiastic about the food. We all ate with great enthusiasm. The staff really made us feel special. I won't even say all the "extra mile" things that they did for us because they really went above and beyond what they were supposed to.

We made a couple excursions to Ocho Rios/Dunns River Falls and to Negril and Rick's Cafe. Ocho Rios was closer than I remember it (new roads) and Negril was not too bad except for the road construction on the West end of Montego Bay.

The only bad thing was that the time at Ebb Tide was way too short.

Extraordinaire semaine de repos et bien-être

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine à EbbTIde et c'était notre première fois. Nous étions 2 familles de 4 personnes incluant 2 jeunes enfants et 2 jeunes adultes (20 et 22 ans). L'accueil a été parfait et nous nous sommes sentis chez nous tout de suite. Tout était fait pour nous: les repas, la table mise, la vaisselle, etc. La nourriture était délicieuse et il y avait toujours un choix de 2 plats principaux car certaines personnes ne mangeaient pas un des 2. Tout le monde était donc très content! Charm et Hyacinth se sont super bien occupées de nous et Hyacinth nous a même servi de guide pour la visite du marché à Falmouth (heureusement, car nous nous serions perdus tellement c'était grand!). J'aimerais bien pouvoir les avoir toutes deux chez nous tellement elles sont gentilles et serviables! Les échanges avec la propriétaire de la villa ont aussi toujours été rapides et elle répondait avec force détails à toutes nos questions (qui ont été nombreuses!). Merci à vous toutes pour ce séjour merveilleux!

As close to perfect as humanly possible!

  • 5 of 5

YES Ebb Tide is TRULY accessible for everyone!!!

If you want the definition of a true vacation Ebb Tide/Silver Sands with Charm and Hyacinth is your destination!

If you want to feel at home in paradise, pampered and entirely care for you could not find better people than Charm and Hyacinth.

My father stayed at Ebb Tide 20 years ago and fell in love with the house and the people. Who knew we would return 20 years later to find some familiar faces and make new friends too! In those 20 years we have added more kids to our family including my little brother who is a multi-handicapped 17 year old wonder. Complete with his "chariot" (wheelchair) the entire Ebb Tide crew lead by Charm and Hyacinth built two small ramps for Caleb (before we arrived) to be able to go literally wherever he wanted too! What an amazing luxury that does not happen every day! The food is out of this world and exactly what we asked for during every meal, snack, left over.

Fresh Red Snapper, Lobster, local mangos, ans SO much more! The access to our own beach is priceless and the close proximity to the public beach, bar and grill, crab races, entertainment is perfect.

We are a very close family who does not easily trust people to care for Caleb because he does need 24/7 care, however Charm and Hyacinth cared for him just as we do and we were more than comfortable having the ladies tend to his every need while we played in the warm ocean or napped or read or whatever we desired to relax.

The transportation was phenomenal! With a bus complete with wheelchair lift just for Caleb.

Ebb Tide the house was so lovely with four bedrooms and four baths everyone could enjoy their own space. The living areas are awesome for watching TV, putting together puzzles, dancing, playing cards, etc.

The dining room is situated between the front and back sliding doors so for every meal your get to hear the surf and feel the ocean breeze.

I can not convey how blessed we felt and still feel.

It is usually so difficult to vacation with a wheelchair we were in heaven with the simplicity and efforts continually made to make us feel like kings and queens.

"Thank you" is not even close to expressing how we feel about his experience but is simply with our DEEPEST thanks that we give to Charm and Hyacinth for making our vacation dreams come true!

We will be back next year and have already put our dates on the calendar!!!

Jamaica here we come- no problem!!!! :)

Relaxation +++ a vacation to remember!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Silver Sands was very relaxing. The pre-breakfast swims were great in setting the tempo for the day. The over-the-top breakfasts served by Charm and Francine were delightful and satisfying, so lunch was not a priority. This made it even more relaxing. The dinners were so good they were better than five star meals. This included lobster, pork roast, curry goat, oxtail, fish done three ways, roast chicken, and stew peas, to name a few. The key lime pie was so good Charm had to repeat with a double batch so we could share with our many friends. For our stay all requests were greeted with smiles and Charm’s and Francine’s desire to make our stay enjoyable.

Charm and Francine worked hard to keep the house clean and tidy despite our vacation mode.

We highly recommend “Ebb Tide” and ”Silver Sands” for a vacation to remember. I most certainly will return sometime soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this mouth-watering review! Yes, tasty, fabulous home-cooked meals are a significant ingredient of an EbbTide holiday. It's so wonderful to see our guests take the culinary plunge and sample - and greatly enjoy - foods and flavors never before experienced, and made all the more delicious because you neither have to cook yourself, nor do the washing up! All we ask is that you bring an open mind and a holiday spirit! Of course mealtime is not the only reason to enjoy EbbTide...It's all about location, location, location. We invite you to check us out smack at the edge of the ocean, where waves tease you and beckon you to unwind, relax, savor and enjoy peace and tranquility like you've never known before!

Ebb Tide is our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Ebb Tide in the afternoon. We were joyfully greeted by charm and hyacinth. We spent most of our days at the beach which was just a quick 3 minute walk down the street. The water was clear, beautiful and warm. Our view from the porch was amazingly gorgeous. A perfect place to watch the sun set and read a good book. The constant breeze off the water was the perfect air conditioning. We had the most wonderful meals prepared by charm and hyacinth. Some of the best food I've ever had! Our private beach was a perfect place to wade in the water and collect seashells. Ebb Tides bed rooms are very spacious and each have an AC unit. The living room stretches across the whole house! There are many comfy couches and chairs to curl up on, relax and enjoy the breeze that blows through the whole house, watch TV or enjoy each others company. We can not wait to plan our next trip to beautiful Jamaica. We will definitely be staying at Ebb Tide, our home away from home.

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Charm and Hyacinth for the wonderful care that we received while on our vacation....the meals were delicious. We spent a great deal of time out on the patio, which was lovely, looking at the ocean, and looking at the wildlife. The setting is very private and romantic. Charm and Hyacinth are the best!

Location

Car: not necessary

Silver Sands Estate is a beautiful resort set in a secure gated community of approximately 90 vacation homes. The reef-protected azure sea is warm and welcoming, and is fringed by the most magnificent sweep of white sand beach in the Island. The ultimate escape! Set in the rural village of Duncans, Silver Sands is ideally located within easy driving distance of the tourist meccas of Ocho Rios and Montego Bay, where you can find a fascinating assortment of fun activities, ranging from river rafting, rainforest canopy tours, horseback riding, dolphin encounters, climbing the world-famous Dunn's River Falls, magnificent golf courses, craft and jewelry shops...and, of course, great dining experiences, be it ethnic, continental or just like home! If the beach at Silver Sands is just too awesome to leave for even a day, then there is tennis on property, as well as great opportunities for power walking or leisurely strolls along the internal roads, and a beach bar and grill.

Other Activities: cave exploring, sunbathing
