The sea view from The Pearl’s extra large balcony (balcony alone is 360 sq ft!) is nothing short of spectacular. You are so close to the water, you want to reach out and touch.

Both bedrooms , and the living room enjoy this magnificent sea view.

Not to be outdone is the view of the beautiful, well manicured garden and pool from the kitchen, living room and both bathrooms. There is a beautiful view from every room in this Penthouse.

About Vernon

Both my wife and l grew up in Jamaica and we are now residing in Canada. Ocho Rios is where my wife was born so she knows the place intimately. No where in Ocho Rios offers the spectacular views of Ocho Rios. The Pearl Penthouse is our opportunity to share the beautiful tradition and culture with the rest of the world.

Vernon purchased this condo in 2013

Why Vernon chose Ocho Rios

One of the largest condos in this community (approx 1, 200 sq. ft) boasting 2 large bedroom, 2 ensuite bathrooms and sleeping up to 6 people, comfortably. This Penthouse suite is one floor from the ground by stairs for easy access and is complemented on the ground floor by a large swimming pool tucked away in a tropical oasis of flowers and trees. This penthouse has sea views to the north and pool views to the south (there is a magnificent view from every window!)

The property boast amazing amenities such as six swimming pools, a mega gym(just 2 minutes away from the Penthouse) that has every equipment you can think of, as well as a large tennis court complemented by the awesome sea breeze and view.

What makes this condo unique

Near to the town center with the most attractions in the island of Jamaica. It also have one of the best view of the Caribbean sea.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed at the Ochio Rios Pearl for two weeks. The accommodation was as good as promised. I found the owners helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The property was clean, comfortable and clean towels etc provided daily by the housekeeper who cleaned daily and was available to cook and run errands if needed.

The balcony was large with an outstanding view.

The property is situated within walking distance of the centre of Ochio and the beaches. There was something for all ages with a good selection of local bars, restaurants, clubs and supermarkets.

I could find very little to fault with my stay here and would certainly plan to stay there again.

Upon entering the complex , the security was friendly , check in was smooth .

Pros : great location , clean , spectacular views , housekeeper Cooks very well and was accommodating, staff were all friendly , spacious, like keyless entry ,

Cons: 2nd bathroom had lots of ants , no A/C in living room area ( cooled down in the evening with breeze) , safe not reliable even when it says it's open after code is entered, hand paper towels should be provided , not wheel chair accessible for those needing it

Overall , we liked our unit and would stay at Columbus heights again .

Value for Money!!

  • 4 of 5

My Cousin Jason and I rented this facility just for a weekend getaway April 15-18, 2015 and indeed it was one of the better trips to our native land Jamaica West Indies. No stress!! This place lived up to every comment that was posted online by other guest who stayed here. The balcony scene took our breath away. We were able to see the ship come in and depart. You felt safe and no pressure or a care in the world. To top it all off, Michelle the housekeeper was the sweetest. She keeps the facility welcoming and immaculate. She is truly a representation of great customer service. I would hire her in a second. Her display of honesty and respect was noteworthy. We appreciated the fact that on the second day, the owner of the Penthouse called to see if we were settled and all is well. The communication since we confirmed our stay was a no brainer. All went smooth. Our only little issue was the Wi Fi which kept going in and out. We are definitely planning on going back in the near future. Already we have told our friends.

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Columbus Heights with my son and his friend for a week. The condo is just as advertised. The view is incredible--the best in the complex. Michelle was fantastic, making delicious meals that we thoroughly enjoyed. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were great. Michelle came every day to tidy up and give us clean towels. It couldn't have been any better. The location is perfect for easy trips to all of the adventurous trips we took to HEvans Scent (for ziplining), the Blue Hole for cliff diving and waterfalls (don't miss it), Dunn's River Falls, and the ATV tour up the mountain which provided amazing views from the top. The US phone was great so we could keep in touch with home without any added cost. We lounged by the pool and enjoyed beautiful evenings on the balcony. It was a short walk to the beach and shopping. I loved walking down main street - past all of the tourist traps - to the local produce and craft market. Mr. Jackson drove us down to one of the local restaurants - Mom's. We had jerk chicken and curried chicken--it was less than $20 for the three of us. Check it out when you visit.

Second Trip- Took Mom this time- My 78 year old Mom who is very picky absolutely loved it

  • 5 of 5

After staying here with my Nephew and Niece back in April, I returned for a second dose. My 78 year old Mom came with me this time and her only comment over and over again was how clean, nice, and great the Pearl is. She loved the view, absolutely loved Michelle (our housekeeper), the security guys were always helping her to go up the stairs and they became her new sons. Again, even though I experienced here once before, this visit also exceeded my expectations. The Pearl will be my Villa of choice when in Ocho Rios and I am there a lot.. Thanks again Sherril and Vernon for being such great hosts

My Pearl Experience

  • 5 of 5

When I first walk thro the doors of the Penthouse I fell inlove, and when I open the curtains of the slide doors to the balcony I knew I had to come back. The view was breath taking both day and night, overlooking the beaches and the lush vegetations around the area. The penthouse was warm and homely and just a few mins walk away from the town with jamaica rich culture. The owner Sherril was a gem she was just one txt or phone call away when I needed any assistance, she was very welcoming. I am looking forward to my next vacation

Great location/accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very clean and spacious. The view is breathtaking and the meals Michelle prepared were much more delicious than some found in the local area. Very quiet surroundings, but close enough to town to enjoy dinner and movie or go out for drinks or karaoke night. The Hills are a bit steep, but it offers great exercise opportunities for your stay. Thanks for a great week, I will be returning in the near future!
