WATERFRONT COTTAGE ON HUGE PROPERTY, CLOSE TO BEAUTIFUL BEACH

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Oracabessa - Real Jamaica

Cottage for 2 Persons – Your Hotel-ly Different Holiday

Jamaica unplugged! The owner, reggae musician Jamaica Papa Curvin, has lived in Germany for 40 years and just recently discovered his favourite property on the island. Now he lives in Jamaica and is looking forward to hosting guests with a genuine interest in his home country.

The newly build cottage in the traditional Jamaican style is located on a vast property with stunning sea views and tropical garden, just above a rocky cliff.

From your front porch or laying in the hammock you will enjoy the beautiful view of the sea, or discover exotic birds and butterflies in the lush vegetation. In the evenings you can watch the light of fireflies.

If you want to, you can fish directly on the property or get refreshed by jumping from the cliffs into the sea, if the conditions allow.

The new patio deck is giving you a panoramic view of the ocean. During the day it´s a wonderful place to relax, to bathe in the sun, read a book, meditate, do your exercise, yoga ect. During the summer months you can enjoy stunning sun rises and sunsets from the here.

James Bond Beach - unser Traumstrand!: A short walk will take you to the famous yet hardly frequented James Bond Beach – a divine Caribbean beach with sun loungers and changing rooms free of charge as well as restaurant where you should definitely try jerk food. Thanks to an offshore reef the sea is very tranquil here, ideal for swimming and snorkelling. Since there is a small fee to access the beach you will often be able to enjoy this beautiful spot all by yourself.

Vacation far away from the crowds!: How about a trip to a beautiful waterfall not far from the property – without bus loads of tourists? Enjoy the beautiful location to swim or jump from the cliffs right into the water. During the week you will hardly meet anybody here, but on the weekends this is a popular hang-out place where local youths like to gather. As a whitey you will find it very easy to get into conversations with them.

Or you can let Rasta Selassie take you to his hidden farm in the mountains - on site, we can organize individual Real Jamaica tours that will lead you to the unknown treasures of the island.

This location offers you everything for a perfect vacation far away from tourist crowds. Here you will get in touch with the locals and discover the real Jamaica!

Simple. Beautiful. Off the beaten path.

My only lament is that I needed 2 more weeks there.

Everyone was wonderful to us- Papa Curvin, Grace, Johanna, Kurrency, and Cornelia, who emailed with me in the weeks leading up to our trip to help me with all of the logistics.

Beautiful people-- hospitable, warm, helpful, easy to talk to, extremely accommodating. We loved the property and it was the absolute perfect spot for us to stay- a good distance from the built up resorts and tourist developments of the island. We were free to do our own thing, had privacy, but the comfort of knowing the staff were just a few steps away and always there to answer any questions we had. We were utterly content with the simplicity of walking to town or the small provisions shops to pick up anything we needed, eating & drinking at roadside spots nearby, swimming at the nearby James Bond beach, sunbathing on the rocks by the cabin, lounging in hammocks, drinking lots of rum on the porch, and chatting up the Real Jamaica staff.

Hoping I'll be back in the not too distant future.

Perfect Spring Break Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 04-Jun-2012
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2012
My boyfriend and I decided very last-minute to come out to Jamaica for our spring break. We're both college students, but we decided that we'd rather spend time with actual Jamaicans instead of staying in the super touristy resort havens. We could not have been more pleased with how quickly they responded to our hasty request for housing and the hospitality they showed us when we arrived. Curvin and Zyon went out of their way to make us feel at home and to ensure that we had the best time possible in their town.

Staying in the area was extremely affordable and offered many opportunities to visit areas without any other tourists. The photos on this page don't do justice to the beautiful tree-filled lot that the two cottages reside on. It's wonderful to walk around the naturally canopied pathways or to read in the hammock with spectacular cliffside views of the ocean thirty feet away. The exquisitely maintained cottages themselves are also perfectly equipped for a week away. Each features a kitchenette stocked with all the basic essentials for cooking and feeding yourselves. Each day, we'd walk or take the local bus (there's only one road, so it's hard to get lost) down to the market for food to cook up. As most of the area restaurants stop serving food past sundown, our late-night schedules didn't adjust for us to eat out much for dinner, but we did have one or two delicious lunches.

I would highly recommend stopping at the road side bars and "jellie" stands (selling refrigerated coconuts). Although I couldn't understand the thicker accents, it was really nice to stop, talk to people and also thoroughly enjoy the snack/drink we'd just picked up. Again, as the village doesn't get many tourists, people were amused by our stupid questions about food/directions and were happy to chat.

Although we did make it out to Negril for our final day (and the water temperature was to die for), you're cheating yourselves of a fuller Jamaican experience if you spend all of your trip in the (much more expensive) resort areas. Also, if security is your concern, besides one easily avoidable run-in with a lowlife in an Ochos Rios market, our trip passed without any sort of safety or theft related incidents!

When we went, Clive's Transport Services were the cheapest and best reviewed budget option for getting out to Oracabessa/Ochos Rios. Our trips were seamless, so if new reviews still say great things, they're a good choice.

Come to Real Jamaica - it's amazing!

Review from The Canadians :)

Our stay at "the real Jamaica" cottage in Oracabessa was AMAZING!! We were so comfortable and relaxed and felt at home there. Zyon was a great hostess and provided us with good advice and information when we requested it. I can't wait to get back there and see her friendly face.......(and her adorable kitties too!)
We saw and experienced everything in Jamaica we wanted to see plus more and still stayed under budget. Definately cheaper then staying at a resort.
I would advise anybody to stay at these cottages, especially if they want a REAL Jamaica experience! So quiet and peaceful, no hustle and bustle. Pure relaxation!!
We had a wonderful time, thank you to the "real Jamaica" team for our experience and our life-long, cherished memories. We know where we'll be taking our next holidays, it's just not soon enough!!

The cottage is situated above a rocky cliff on the popular northern coast in Oracabessa, an authentic little village with traditional fishing port. In prominent location yet far away from the tourist crowds!

Here you will find rest and relaxation in the large tropical garden or on the divine beach nearby.

You can also explore the island and make individual trips - we will be glad to give you advice and help you with organizing your excursions. If you want to get to know the country and the locals, we can also offer you some interesting tours.

Numerous tourist activities are available in the lively harbour town of Ocho Rios (18 km from the property). For example you may want to visit the botanical garden, the museums, Fern Gully or the waterfalls. You can also play golf or tennis, go horse riding or diving, swim with dolphins, etc.

Close to the property you will find various shops and restaurants.
