Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms, 6 Sleeps

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 bottomsperfect 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 Dunns 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.

A terrific time for my family in a beautiful house with great staff.

  • 5 of 5

House was wonderful. Staff was even better. We miss Miss Cherry's food as we speak and Brian and Elvis services our every need. Still trying to figure out how Miss Pat got our whites so pretty!

Also house is in great location near all the great sites of Ocho Rios. Great modern house with old school feel!

My 4yr old son is still asking if he can go back to use the swimming pool which was a bit cold but well used. Thank you for a wonderful visit and we look forward to our next return!

Scotch on the Rocks far surpassed our wildest expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The staff were so dedicated to making our trip the best and most authentic Jamaican experience anyone could have. They were unbelievably gracious and entertaining as well.

The food was amazing. Cherri, Elvis, and Brian collaborated with us on the days activities as well as the tremendous drinks and meals through out the day. The location next to the town of Ocho Rios was perfect for us as we planned a number of activities and did not have to drive too far. The equipment at the dockside, snorkeling, kayaks, and paddle boards complemented the amazing swimming you could do right off the docket. Patricia graciously greeted us at the house upon our arrival and made sure we went home with clean clothes. We left with tears in our eyes. We can hardly wait to return!

Genuine service

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fantastic vacation despite the weather not cooperating ... The house is an excellent place to spend time with family and friends lending itself to a lot of family activity with the many separate places.

The house is a little outdated but it is more than compensated for by a staff that is outstanding and genuine. We had Jamaican food all week and could not be better! Obviously Bryan-mons rum punch is legendary!

A Piece of Heaven in Jamaica

  • 5 of 5

ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR!

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!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

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.

The visit exceeded expectations.

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.
