On site parking, caretaker/ security man with abundant local knowledge. Perfect for large family. Easy walk to Rick's cafe.

Guests of the ranch have exclusive run of the place, although the amiable neighbour, who is the caretaker, is there when you need him.

About Paul MacInnes

Father of two. Fluent Spanish and english.I have been travelling to Jamaica for 25+ years and have fallen in love with this vibrant island and it's wonderful ,friendly people.Rancho Relaxo is my dream home and I plan to retire there.I also own the villa next door which I purchased in 1998 and has also been a successful guest house for many years.I believe that if you give Jamaica a visit you will become enchanted as well.I have extensive knowledge of the island and would be happy to answer any questions you may have. Enjoy

Paul MacInnes purchased this house in 2007

Why Paul MacInnes chose Jamaica

This was an empty lot beside my other house which I have owned since 1999. I always wanted to be on the water until I witnessed a hurricane. I decided it was easier to go to the water than rebuild continually as my neighbors on the water have to do more often than one could guess.

What makes this house unique

Security goes hand in hand with privacy, that is the best feature of this house. You have complete control over your interaction with the outside world(an oasis) that only those who stay at Rancho will be a part of. The house is newly built(2010) so everything is in perfect working order. Our neighbors are a nice mix of foreigners and locals which makes interaction easy if desired.This is a unique because you will have a memorable experience that just can not happen in an all inclusive hotel who's bottom line is numbers and profit.We will entice you to return again &again. Respect Paul & Tania

Great place for a family to stay

  • 5 of 5

Firstly we would like to thank Paul for allowing us to stay in his lovely home. We stayed for a month as we were attending a family wedding, followed by a reunion which was held at Rancho Relaxo. Paul gave us plenty of information and even assisted with names and numbers for a local dj and other things.

We had 17 people staying in the Ranch including children and we did not feel squashed together. My family being the largest with 2 adults and 5 children all stayed in the master bedroom, with plenty of space for us all.

Gummy was always there to help when we needed, probably spending most of his time picking Guinep for the children to eat!!

Sophia made sure all our needs were taken care of for us all to be comfortable for the duration of our stay, and Wen helped with all the food prep and cooking for the reunion.

Definitely recommend staying here, pictures do not do Rancho Relaxo justice.

Thanks to you all Samara and family

P.s here is a little review from another family member who stayed at Rancho Relaxo with us:

Overall, we experienced a really pleasant stay at Rancho Relaxo. The rooms were all a comfortable size with the option to have a bunk bed. This also included air conditioning and a decently sized bathroom. The kitchen and garden was large enough to accommodate such a large family with all the essential utensils that were needed. An added bonus was the indoor swimming pool, were we spent many days cooling off in and lounging around the pool. This Villa provided us with all the necessary things that we needed to have a very relaxing holiday, for both adults and children.

However, if we ever needed help we could always reach to Wen, Sophia and Gummy. I cannot emphasis enough how helpful and good spirited these people were. They made our stay even more delightful by not only looking after the villa, but also being really easy to contact and talk to.

On one occasion, we did experience a shortage of water and electricity, due to a storm in Jamaica, however everything was up and running within the next day.

We would recommend staying here for people of all ages to get a lovely experience of Jamaica.

Amazing 30th birthday!!!

  • 5 of 5

I came to Rancho Relaxo to celebrate my 30th birthday with 11 close family and frIends. Everything I read online about the house and other reviews were spot on! Starting at the airport. Our driver dean was there waiting for us patiently and was there for us through the trip. He was truly amazing, funny, and a genuinely good person. When we arrived at the house Sofia was there to greeted us and give us a tour of the house. She was amazing. I felt like she was family. The house itself is spectacular. Perfect for my group. Everyone had their own rooms and everyone could be together in the center of the house and enjoy the pool. The kitchen was a dream. Everything you need. Wen came and cooked breakfast and dinner for us! One of the best food we had EVER! Just amazing and such a great person. We went to eat at Murphy's TWICE! Best curry chicken ever! And Murphy himself makes the experience better. We ate at Zest ( recommendation from dean) right on the cliffs of Negril. Spectacular views and food. Everything during the trip went exactly as planned. We did two excursions and really got to experience Jamaica as locals. Everyone in my group enjoyed themselves so much. We all want to go back immediately. Thank you Paul for being such a great host and sharing your utopia with us! It truly was magical!

More that we expected

  • 5 of 5

Rancho Relaxo was great place for 6 ladies looking to enjoy a week in Negril. We were met by an ever so kind Sophia who made us feel welcome and explained all the amenities. We arrived later than expected and she was ready for us upon our arrival. WEN, what an amazing spirit! We all wanted to take Wen home to cook for us permanently. The food was a fabulous and he cooked everything we wanted without hesitation. This ranch has everything you could ever want, the place is a well maintained private accommodation with modern touches, clean, spacious on interior and exterior. The exterior boasts mango, sour sop, ackee , ginuup trees with plush greenery and flowers for added privacy. We will definitely return, Paul the owner, was very helpful & professional during the booking process and made my planning process seamless. I would highly recommend the Rancho Relaxo!!! Until next time. CHEERS!

Above and Beyond

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Paul, Sophia and Gummy for such a welcoming, clean, accommodating stay at Rancho Relaxo. Our party of 9 felt totally at home, safe, and well taken care of during our 12 day stay at your home.

Your property is immaculate, and the vast, well kept yard was full of fruit, flowers, and lots of things for the children to explore. They did so of course, when they were not enjoying your beautiful pool. Wifi was reliable, and an invaluable tool to keep in touch with our families at home.

We were within walking distance to convenience stores, and a 15 min taxi ride to 7 mile beach. We enjoyed recording our new Reggae album at Mad Rebel Studio with Mojo Herb and the band had lunch each day at either Canoe restaurant, or enjoyed Ital dishes at the Bob Marley Birthday Bash grounds.

Sophia and Gummy went above and beyond taking care of us, in a way that made us feel like family. I would highly recommend Rancho Relaxo to friends and family; it is a perfect home away from home for several families to feel like we each had enough space and privacy, and yet enjoy a great common area to eat, play and enjoy Red Stripe together. Thank you for this excellent experience.

Blessings and Guidance,

Waymatea and Souljah Fyah Family

Great property, great place near Negril

  • 5 of 5

This house is magnificent with huge rooms and very comfortable for vacation. We loved the swimming pool in the center too.

We highly recommend this place.

We preferred to have a rental car which was more practical to move around or go groceries shopping.

And we loved the curry goat and Christmas meal prepared with Gummy.

Internet is also working great which is critical nowadays.

Great time there for our family.
