Set high on a mountain, Spring Mountain Villa gives you privacy, a breathtaking view and a vacation like no other. Green Isle is a Jamaican town just miles from the white sand beaches and cliff side restaurants of world famous Negril. Your hosts, Jock and Marvia, live right next door and will provide a genuine Jamaican vacation tailored to your taste! They are available to cook (Marvia is a great chef), guide and transport you to the many activities available locally. The entire 3 acre compound is fenced and the enclosure contains the two villas, many native fruit trees (mango, papaya, bannana, coconut), and a vegetable garden. For a modest fee, you can go deep sea fishing, river fishing, ride with Jock on his glass bottom boat, go to an island for a BBQ, go horseback riding, visit the bird sanctuary and even hike to the falls. The Negril beach, just minutes away by car, is a seven mile crescent ringed with bars, restaurants and water activities.
Jock and Marvia, who have two young children, have years of experience as tourist chaperones. Both are fluent in English and know their business very well. They were born and raised in the area. You can feel safe and secure in their care. They will escort you to the less expensive shops and stores as well as secluded and remote areas, if you wish, for a modest fee.
If you like the beach, this is the way to go: the white sands of Negril, the sunsets, the nighttime activities are at your disposal! You do not have to deal with the hassle of tourist hotels, with a myriad of rules and regulations. If you wish, you can relax on the beach every day and spend the entire time frequenting the local bars and restaurants. Every hotel on the beach has a bar and a beach area that are open to the public and most have amenities that you can enjoy (such as hammocks, a pool, and beach chairs) while you patronize their establishment.
If you like the cliffs, you can spend all day snorkeling off the rocks at any number of bars and restaurtants that overlook the sea. You can ride there by auto or Jock can take you on his glass bottom boat around from the beach to the cliffs. You can see the famous cliffs from the boat, snorkel on the reefs, swim to the cliffs (and dive, if you are brave!). You can snorkel directly from the boat (equipment provided), go ashore for lunch and drinks, and return with the sunset on the water.
Jock can take you on his glass bottom boat to snorkel on the reefs or for lunh on a nearby island, where you can feast on lobster, fish and chicken (drink included). You can go deep sea fishing or river fishing, if this is your pleasure.
You can cool off and go river swimming (fresh water) by the waterfall. It is an easy hike through the lush grren countryside.
If you are an explorer, then this is the vacation you want. You can hike at Roaring River and the Mayfield Falls or take a day trip to the bird sanctuary and enjoy the natural landscape at your own pace. There is no experience as exciting as having Jock cut open a coconut with his machete as you hike the countryside!
