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.

It's light and airy and lives up to the photography seen in the listing. Well-maintained, clean and tidy, providing all essential equipment need to make yourself at home including great wifi access . We found the house keeper, neighbours and staff at the front gate very welcoming and friendly which added to the feeling of being secure. Great location for travelling and touring Jamaica's north coast. I would surly recommend this property to family and friends

The villa and surroundings were clean and cosy and would definitely recommend this villa to others. Unfortunately there were a few hick ups during my stay. The garden came across very rude and unwelcoming and although the swimming pool is stated on the website as private this is not the case as the pool is in fact shared with other guests. Apart from that everything else was very coche and the Chris the care taker was on point. Would definitely stay here again! Thank you.

Property well-maintained and clean. Activities, attractions and restaurants within 5 minutes walk. Rental was worth the price, we had a good deal. Local area offered all our needs and will come back next year using the same rental.
