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.

Weather in Port Maria, Jamaica

Port Maria lies on the coast but is 1,000 metres above sea level which means that it is slightly cooler than other areas on the island. The warmest months are between May and September. The months of July and August are the hottest in the town with temperatures reaching a daytime average of 28°C. The good news is that there are regular sea breezes to help visitors stay cool. Visitors should note that Jamaica is within the hurricane and earthquake belts although these incidents rarely occur.

There are a few operators who offer affordable direct flights to Jamaica including British Airways and Virgin Atlantic Airways. Other airlines offering indirect flights include American Airlines, Air Canada and Caribbean Airlines. Passengers can depart from various UK airports such as Gatwick (LGW), London Heathrow (LHR), Aberdeen (ABZ), Edinburgh (EDI), Leeds (LBA) and Manchester (MAN).

EUPHORIC CONDO

5 of 5
Round of applause for Ms. Kenita, I have traveled to Jamaica many times and I must say hands down this is the best condo/villa I have ever stayed in. Once you walk into the apartment it is like walking on a cloud everything has been updated to the max. This place is in the heart of Ochi Rios across the street from Margaritaville and 2-3 min walking distance to shops, bus line and grocery stores. Everything was cleaned and arranged in tact when my party walked in I never had a problem and actually had a beautiful view of Columbus Heights at night from the balcony. I have been to Jamaica 6 times in the past year and this is the best place I have stayed in. Big up your self Kenita you have a winner. I will recommend this place to anyone I know who will be traveling to Jamaica by the way if you want to book please do so because her place is booked out !

Such a relaxing location!

5 of 5
This apartment is a real home from home. My partner and I stayed there for two weeks and were sorry to leave. Booking was simple and the owner, Dulcia, very responsive to emails and super helpful. Key was ready for us on arrival, alongside useful information to help us during the stay; air conditioning was on which we were grateful for. The provision of beach towels was really helpful! Charmaine, who cleaned etc for us every day was fantastic, and well deserved of a tip at the end. Towels were changed daily and everything was kept very fresh! Nice shower (water quick to heat up), good kitchen with all the equipment (oven, hob, coffee machine, toaster, microwave, fridge/freezer) you need. Lounge was comfortable and there were many TV channels (if you wanted something to watch); news (local/other), documentaries.children's TV and movies.We had a few issues with the WIFI, but Dulcia was quick to try and resolve. The apartment does pick up the WIFI from reception (we discovered) so it wasn't much of an issue. Great balcony which we had breakfast on every morning. Bed was huge and comfortable. We found with the aircon and fan it was just right temp for sleeping. Lots of cupboard/drawer space was helpful. The extras...e.g. safe, hairdryer, clothes airer, iron+board were much appreciated. Clearly much thought has gone into this unit! Pool was well looked after and great for a swim, hardly busy when we were there. The dedictaed loungers for the aprtment were much used but there were others available. We swam in the beach 'pool' every day...the home of quite a few fish and an eel as we discovered while snorkelling. I would recommend bringing beach/wet suit shoes, as there are a few rocks but also these are needed for other excurions such as Dunns River Falls and the Blue Hole. My other half swam out of the beach pool on the calmer days; not to be recommended when the sea is rough as the 'gap' is guarded by rocks. Security at this complex 24hr and gates are closed overnight, allowing pedestrian access. We ate at Glenn's across the road for both breakfast and dinner, highly recommend this very reasonable and very friendly establishment (they do take away which we had following our arrival early evening). Also had some great jerk chicken at the Jerk Centre just up the road. We used route taxis to go into town, and would recommend. Dulcia even sent us Easter bread, cheese and mangoes as a gift as we were there then! Perfect host with a lovely place! THANKS
