Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Port Antonio - Chateau en Exotica

Private Luxury Villa, 4 bedrooms, 4 baths and sleep 1-12

Chateau en Exotica pertinent Questions and Answers. Why would A.T. & T. and its affiliates choose a small, exclusive, private 5+ acre Chateau Estate located in a small, noncommercial tropical paradise on a small Caribbean island as their Mega Giant company's 'Million Dollar Player' awards grand prize destination? (Twice chosen.) Why would Jamaica's largest newspaper The Daily Gleaner, devote almost a full page special feature on The Chateau calling it, 'A dream house, a place of serenity?' (Twice featured).

Why would popular books, newsletters and magazines such as Frommer's Jamaica 2004 3rd edition select Chateau en Exotica' A Real Pocket Of Posh, has opened in this north coast resort.' 'Worthy of being called A Fantasy Retreat' (page 2) 'If you want the honeymoon retreat of all time or else want to slip away for an illicit week, consider this oasis near San San Beach and the Blue Lagoon, its the Ultimate Fantasy Retreat' (pages 167 & 168).

Best Villa Rentals-Caribbean, Focus on the World, The Caribbean, The Visitor, International Travel News and Caribbean Property (front cover) write wonderful, special stories or use the picture post card views? Why does Hollywood film so many movies here, such as Cocktails starring Tom Cruise (movie crew were also Chateau guests), Club Paradise, recent remakes of Treasure Island and Lord Of The Flys, Mighty Quinn, Clara's Heart, In Like Flynn, Treasure Of Jamaica Reef, Girls Of Jamaica, Playmates In Paradise and Eden?

DREAM VACATION

  • 5 out of 5
As travelers to Cancun,much of the Caribbean, Hawaii (hang loose) the Florida Keys and

The Bahamas (including the Atlantis resort, which is also a fun place, man made beautiful, but sorry to say, we found that the staff, at ATLANTIS resort, seemed to have little or no consideration, for THEIR ATLANTIS guests).

Our personal vacation favorites, are the Chateau en Exotica, and Castles on the Sea, Ocho Rios Jamaica, we had spent both our honeymoon, and since then five family vacations at the Chateau (which speaks for itself)

We have also recently vacationed at Castles on the Sea, which is also owned by the same owners, (who own the Chateau en Exotica), which is close to Ocho Rios Jamaica, and once again, we have had some of our very best vacations ever, problem is which one to visit, Chateau or Castles?

This year we split up our vacation with one week at each property, which was exactly the right choice, for us.

Both are totally different, but equally fantastic in their own ways, we wound up having the best family vacations we have ever enjoyed.

If your looking for a unique vacation/dream honeymoon getaway, or very special occasion, with a friendly and surperb staff, fabulous meals, a famous pristine Chateau, or two twin "Castles", we recommend either property, pick the one that best suits what you all enjoy the most. You wont go wrong.

In either one of the most gorgeous tropical settings imaginable, only minutes away, are Gorgeous private beaches, rivers/ waterfalls for swimming, Blue lagoons, tennis, golf and without lots of tourist trapings.

Though there are more tourist attractions in the Ocho Rios area, Dunns River Falls, Mystic Mountain, Dolphin Cove, Fern Gully etc), therefore you will likely find many more fellow tourist's in Ocho Rios.

However Castles is actually about a 15 minute's drive away, from Margaritaville, and many of the other tourist attractions of Ocho Rios.

We also love and enjoy the party atmosphere of Cancun, its lovely beaches (though mostly rough waters for swimming). But staying in a hotel, is not privacy.

We find both the Chateau and Castles are TOTALLY private resorts, that are VERY VERY hard to beat.

Thanks to all of our friendly staff at both properties, who always treat us as royalty, always providing us with cherished privacy, simply awesome unforgetible dining treats, great tropical drinks, and SO much more, GOD willing we will be back again.

Owner's Response: Our attempt is to continusiouly offer and provide, extremly affordable rates, at some of most beautiful and totally private accomodations, in the safest, and most select and gorgeous areas of jamaica, or where ever they those properties are located worldwide.

It is heart warming to know, that our efforts, though not always perfect, have in fact attracted world wide rave reviews, not what we say, but what many of the following world famous say:

In any book store or libary, you may read worlds leading travel author, arthur frommer's jamaica travel, opinion of the chateau en exotica.

Chateau en exotica is featured on pbs television special, the bahamas and the caribbean with shiri belafonte

Jamaica's leading newspaper the daily gleaner
Calls chateau en exotica " a jamaica dream house" with this being almost a full page sunday feature.

A t & t million dollar contest (chateau en exotica twice chosen, as at&t's dream distination)

Film crew from movie cocktails, guests of chateau while filming
Movie

Our properties are featured in many travel books

Caribbean's deluxe property magazine maco had a five page feature on castle's on the sea. (our newest property).

We believe it would be extremly difficult to find other private or public resorts, that have those type of alcolades, its really great, when other's praise your efforts.

It's almost equally encouraging to get hundreds of numerious positive feedback from our happy guests, and thank god we certainly have recieved more than our share, making all efforts from both ourselves, our professional staff's, and all others involved totally worth while.

Each year we recieve many such letters of thanks. Sorry that we can not share, all of them.

Our thank you to all of our returning guests (which have been many), are both verbal, writting, and also a 15% returning guests discount, at any rental property we have.

We feel certain that most guests would return, even if there were no discount.

Hopefully some of our guests, may also share their comments, to this venue, regarding any of our properties, they have formally vacationed at.

Please feel free to ask any questions, which you may have, or make any inquiries. Hope many others, will be able to also enjoy either (or both) of these earthly edens.

Always the very best, henri & joyce

TRULY AN ULTIMATE FANTASY RETREAT

  • 5 out of 5
My favorite place to go is Chateau en Exotica in Pt. Antonio, Jamaica. One can never be bored because of the numerous things to do like going to San San private beach, so intimate with white sand caressing your feet. There is river rafting, or going to Reach Falls as seen in "Cocktails: starring Tom Cruise. The craft markets are well stocked and this is naming a few things to do. Best of all is after enjoying the sea and sun you go back to the Chateau to be pampered. The service extended by the staff is absolutely A1 and at the same time very professional. One of my sumptuous meals is Doris' pumpkin soup which is to die for. The chateau is exquisitely decorated and at the same time very intimate. . The staff is very gracious, very polite and also friendly.. I look forward with so much anticipation to my next visit - it is so worth it. I must not fail to mention that working with the owners concerning reservation, and accommodation is polite and hassle free.

SHEER BLISS

  • 5 out of 5
After giving birth 3 months ago, vacation was the last thing on my mind but I'm happy that my wonderful & thoughtful husband convinced me in going to Jamaica where we stayed in the most romantic oasis surround by lush green mountains harmoniously over looking the beautiful blue sea as the sounds of song birds filled the air. Upon our arrival we were graciously greeted with champagne in long stem crystal glasses by the butler & the entire staff making us feel like celebrities. Chef Doris is really fantastic not to mention her must have delicious bread pudding. The villa was immaculately kept especially being paranoid about my new born. I was pampered with an amazing reflexologist & baby nurse Carole Rose who has duel citizenship in Jamaican & United States which was all arranged by the staff. I felt safe leaving my baby to go and have poolside candle lit romantic dinners with my husband & lounge at the most beautiful private white sandy beaches. The staff went above & beyond in their call of duty. I almost forgot that I was a new Mom. Come one come all & immerse yourself in sheer bliss. I'm Already planning my return trip to Chateau en Exotica with two other couples & their children.

A+ FOR SATISFACTION

  • 5 out of 5
Me and my family have enjoyed going to the Chateau en Exotica over the years, my most recent being early this month. This is a haven for seclusion. My most relaxing time is early mornings by the pool overlooking "Aligator Head" (note shape of the land stretched out in the blue waters) with reflections of the sun on the water. The professionalism combined with the cheerfulness of the staff leave nothing to be desired. The pictures speak for themselves - what you see is definitely what you get. If you want privacy, that's the place to be and if you want more action that's also nearby.
My family and I alternate our visits between the "Chateau "and the "Castles" in Ocho Rios (also owned by Henri & Joyce Verne) and we have never been disappointed. I wholeheartedly recommend anyone to choose either place for an unforgettable vacation.
