Lovely spacious villa

5 of 5
Caribbean Dawn is a lovely spacious villa within the safe and well maintained Mammee Bay estate. The Villa has four seizable bedrooms all with air conditioning. There is a very large living area divided into different areas all well laid out. Large double doors look out onto the beautifully maintained garden that includes two mango trees. The villa also comes with a pool table and that most important of modern requirement wifi. A short pleasant walk along a coconut lined avenue takes you to a private beach with a beach bar. It's not cheap but then you a paying for good service and a view to across the sea. There are various activities available or just enjoy a cold beer or cocktail. We were met by Audrey who introduced us to the villa as well as Nellie who comes in each weekday and will cook for a small payment. Her ackee and saltfish went down a storm. Without doubt Nellie is a gem. A short drive along the coast takes you to the busy town of Ocho Rios which contains a number of restaurants. We would recommend Miss T's just past the amazingly busy clock tower on the left. Good quality food at reasonable prices with a number of vegetarian options. Just watch the car's undercarriage when you go into their car park. Evita's is up the hillside and a little more expensive but definitely worth a visit. For those who prefer quick food then try the Island Grill and Juci Patties. There is now a new toll road just down the road from the villa that takes you into Kingston and Spanish Town. State of the art road which goes through some stunning countryside. The national art gallery in Kingston is definitely worth visiting. So for those looking for a good safe family sized villa in a lovely setting, near to the beach and within easy access to Ocho Rios then like us Caribbean Dawn could be the place for you.
