Make a Holiday Rental Apartment in Port Maria, Jamaica Your Home Away From Home

 

Port Maria is the capital town of the St. Mary parish on the beautiful island of Jamaica. Once an important port, the town sits inland from a wonderful horse shoe shaped bay with steep hills as its backdrop. The town is quiet compared to other tourist areas of Jamaica which makes it an ideal location for renting an apartment. You still have access to various outdoor activities in Port Maria, but you are guaranteed to be secluded from the crowds and bustle.

Things to Do on Holiday to Port Maria, Jamaica

Going on a Port Maria holiday is one of the best ways to find peace and relaxation alongside fun and adventure. The town has its own beautiful sandy beach where visitors can enjoy a spot of swimming, sunbathing, diving, snorkelling, sailing and fishing. Other activities available in the town include cycling and hiking, thanks to the hilly areas above the bay of Port Maria.

One must-see when on holiday in Port Maria is Firefly, the holiday home on Jamaica of the famous playwright Noel Coward. The house is now a museum and Noel Coward’s final resting place. Firefly was built on a high point above the town which was once the look-out point for the pirate Henry Morgan. Not only is Firefly one of the best places to get stunning views of the town and the sea, it is a perfect subject for those who are keen on painting, drawing or photography.

Places to Visit on Holiday to Port Maria, Jamaica

No trip to the wonderful island of Jamaica would be complete without venturing further a field to the capital city of Kingston. If you can tear yourself away from your wonderful Port Maria accommodation, you will find culture, music and Jamaican history in abundance. Fans of the legendary Bob Marley should make a stop at the museum in the city, which was the star’s former home. There is a lot of information to be found here including a tour of the museum and a film about Marley’s life.

Nature lovers will want to visit the Hope Botanical Gardens which not only provide peace and tranquillity away from the centre of the city, but a collection of immaculately green lawns and sprawling palm trees. Adjoining the gardens is Hope Zoo where you will find many animals including crocodiles, flamingos, zebras, lions, gazelles and the Jamaican Fruit Bat.

Everything was as stated in the villa description, such a beautiful, safe area. I have a 5 year old who loved it, every morning he ate his breakfast on the veranda and could run about outside without worrying. There were great facilities in the villa and everything was close to reach. The property was very clean. When we arrived the Villa smelt fresh & clean with clean linen on the beds! A Nice clean bathroom to wash off after the long flight from england and a clean spacious kitchen to make a quick something to eat. Sharon is very lovely & friendly, as it was my first time travelling to Jamaica she told me everything i needed to know and ensured i was ok with all the details. With any enquiry she got back to me ASAP! I would recommend this property a 1000 times and more! I have already booked to come back! Such a nice, Secure & friendly area. Also very close to Ochi! Thanks so much Sharon for all your help! Cant wait to come back! Love Hollie & Shenice. x

The villa was very easy to find, it was in a beautiful setting, and perfect for relaxation. I occupied the guest suite which had everything for my convenience. The property was clean and wll maintained. The service was fantastic, the staff made you feel welcomed, and the food excellent (yum, yum) The journey into Ocho Rios is very easy as there are numerous taxis and busses into the town. I was aware that there were attractions and restaurants nearby, but I was happy just having lazy days beside the pool, jacuzzi and leasurly walks down to the beach which is only two or three minutes walk away. I would defenitely recommend this property to a friend. I came back to the UK totally refreshed, and can't wait for the next trip.
