|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Perched atop a cliff at the edge of the Caribbean Sea is Scotch on the Rocks, an endearing turquoise villa just minutes from the heart of Ocho Rios. Although the villa sits upon a rock, all of the private ocean swimming areas have cozy, shallow, sandy bottoms—perfect for children. Cool off in the shade of the white gazebo at the end of the dock, with nothing to look at but miles of ocean waters and tiny windsurfers in the distance.
Stone steps lead from the main house down a slope to a private cove and a fabulous crystal clear bay. Kayaks and snorkeling gear are included. Or you might opt for a quick dip in the swimming pool. Wi-Fi is available on the main floor. Full staff is provided. If you feel like spending your day outdoors, the staff will gladly set up seats on the seaside deck and bring out your lunch.
The decor at Scotch on the Rocks features Victorian fretwork and warm mahogany floors that add classic charm, while Italian travertine reflects the recent renovations. The interior design is a tasteful, yet eclectic mix of high tech amenities and Jamaican/English antiques. The comfy verandah overlooking the vast sea is the ideal setting to share a laugh.
The five stately bedrooms at “Scotchie” accommodate up to ten guests. Dark wooden accents add warmth to the pristine, plush furniture. Each bedroom includes en-suite bathroom, TV with DVD player and air conditioning. The calm sea views are simply breathtaking.
The grounds at Scotch on the Rocks feature lush tropical gardens where bougainvillea and orchids are often in bloom. Built by the Scottish Lord, The Earl of Mansfield, the property currently belongs to members of the Red Stripe Beer family. Whether you decide to go for a day trip to nearby Dunn’s River Falls or the infamous James Bond Beach, you will surely enjoy the feeling of returning home to unwind in this unique piece of Jamaican history.

The villa is immaculate! The STAFF IS THE BEST PART! They make you feel at home! We are definitely coming back to our little piece of heaven in Jamaica.
My husband and I travel a lot and our last tropical trip was an over water bungalow in French Polynesia. We thought we would never be able to top that...WRONG! This is your own little paradise all to yourself!
We had a phenomenal trip made magical by the staff in the villa. Scotch on the Rocks may be a little outdated but Elvis, Bryan, Cherry and Pat are as welcoming, accommodating as they come and the food and service doesn't come any better. The views are magnificent and the waters are excellent stage for hours of fun. Thank you.
Scotch of the Rocks is a beautiful house and located directly on the sea, absolutely outstanding. But the attention to detail and professionalism of the staff were extraordinary. We all had a wonderful vacation.
Wow what a great time we had ,travelling with our adult children to Ocho Rios and scotch on the rocks. Staff at the villa were wonderful , Brian organised anything we needed , Cherry cooked wonderful meals; you don't need to go out. Everything was perfect even the weather.I would highly recommend staying here.
My wife and I are seasoned world travelers and have had the good fortune of staying at some of the worlds top resorts, hotels and villas. That said, Scotch on the Rocks was by far the best property we have ever visited. The property itself was stately and elegant. Everything was well maintained and spotless. The true magic of the property, however, was the staff. They treated us like we were family and they did everything in their power to enrich the vacation experience our entire family. Scotch on the Rocks is a beautiful place to experience Jamaica. The people, the culture, the music and the natural beauty of Jamaica are what make it the heartbeat of the Caribbean.
