EBBTIDE-ELEGANT CARIBBEAN CHARM 4/4 IDEALLY POISED-WATERS EDGE

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Duncans

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

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!

The Sea...Oh, The Sea!

Our garden spills out through a white picket gate onto the silky blue Caribbean, fringed by a powdery white sand beach. EbbTide guests are able to enjoy this ‘west beach’ almost exclusively, as it is completely separate from the magnificent ‘east beach’ which is the undisputed hub of Silver Sands.

We affectionately call this west beach ‘our little beach’ and, sshhhhh…it’s EbbTide’s best kept secret! Here you can wade or snorkel in the shallow water, take a leisurely stroll amidst lapping waves at the water’s edge, collect sea shells, reach out and touch the setting sun as it settles into the rippling pink and gold water .. or simply drink in the peace and grandeur that is Silver Sands!

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!

What makes a holiday at EbbTide so special? Perhaps it is the extra touches that we put into every detail. Like the discreet turn-down service every evening, when a delectable chocolate is placed on your pillow. Or the wall-mounted hairdryers and magnified make-up mirror in our bathrooms to transform you from beach bum to tropical diva. Or perhaps it is the efficient, pampering care that Charm and Hyacinth take of you...all simply EbbTide's way of saying "You're special and we're glad you're here!"

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks so much for everything. We so very much appreciate the setting of Ebb Tide but especially Charm and Hyacinth, who are always available with smiles, ready to anticipate our needs. And we're both readers, and no other place has ever had reading lights, which we adore. Once again, thank you for everything. We love Ebb Tide. The view from the patio is truly spectacular-no electric wires, so pure.

A presto

The perfect vacation

  • 5 out 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.

As close to perfect as humanly possible!

  • 5 out 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 out 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 out 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 out 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!

Ebb Tide - Perfect Location and Get-Away (full)

  • 5 out of 5
I have stayed at Ebb Tide at least five times over the last ten years and can't wait to return. It is really a very special vacation spot. The entire Silver Sands complex is great -very different from a typical "resort"-much more authentic.

Ebb Tide benefits from a fabulous location right on the ocean. My favorite thing is to sip coffee before breakfast on the patio enjoying the morning ocean. I love the layout of the house-it is perfect for groups and the large open living room is so pleasant and social. I am a timid eater but have always enjoyed the food. Charm and Hyacinth have always been great about accommodating my requests (see below). I have always been very happy with their service.

Ebb Tide’s amazing location is the selling point for me. It is a great value compared to other properties with similar locations. Another benefit is privacy / no noise... some villas by the beach can be noisy with lots of foot traffic/activity at the beach bar. Ebb Tide is close enough but far enough!

The decor is authentic and warm with wonderful paintings by local artists on the walls (I bought one from the artist in Ochie for my husband's wedding gift!) While the villa has not been completely renovated in recent years as some others have been, this has never been an issue for me. There are other villas that are new and/or newly renovated-if you feel strongly about this you should stay at one of these but be prepared to sacrifice location/cost.

-I don't go to Silver Sands for luxury (although being cooked for feels luxurious). It is a more rustic and authentic experience!

-I have always had a different meal each day (with certain staples -eggs, plantains, salad). My favorites are (1)veggie stew peas (2)brown stew chicken (3)curry chicken (4)pumpkin soup (5)fish-snappe, (6)banana bread. I have tried all sorts of things including ox tail, ackee and saltfish, mackerel, chicken foot soup(!) etc. Most are too adventurous for me but others love them. I LOVE the guava jelly, johnny cakes and the fresh fruit. I tend to make my own coffee in the mornings before the ladies arrive (and snack on fruit or banana bread)-they are always willing to put on another pot when they arrive.

I come to Ebb Tide to relax and unwind. I plan to read a few books, spend time at the beach and relax at the house. I really do love this villa and hope that others select it for the same reasons I have and also have the same, wonderful experience.
