About Osburn Tucker

Living in Canada and have several rental options to offer travellers to Jamaica. Responding to enquiries in a timely manner, and customer satisfaction is my number one priority.

Osburn Tucker purchased this villa in 2006

Why Osburn Tucker chose North Coast Jamaica

I bought this property because of the quiet location yet close to

all amenities.This is a great area for golfers, sun seekers,

beach goers, and those that enjoy the laid back lifestyle.

This property offers great value for the money.

What makes this villa unique

lots of fruit trees for guest to sample. Unique layout of property provides security and privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Osburn,

We loved Whistling Villa, and you have a real treasure in Chris your groundskeeper. He took great care of us, helped us shift heavy groceries and excavation materials, got the barbecue and oven going for us as needed and was always of good cheer. His two dogs were real favourites and if we could have smuggled them home in our bags - we would have!

The house was absolutely perfect for our needs! We will definitely be in touch about next year if our grant comes through. Lots of space to work and store our gear, it was great to be able to have the pool at the end of a long hot day of excavation and Dorothy the cook was super. She taught us how to make coconut drops and smashed green plantains.

Thank you again for accommodating us for this project it was a super spot for the whole team.

Best regards

Dr Robyn

Spacious 4 bedroom villa with pool

  • 3 of 5

Spacious 4 bedroom villa with good size pool and well kept gardens in quiet neighbourhood of Runnaway Bay.

Flavours public beach is clean and safe for children , is a 20 minutes walk . The beach cafe serves reasonably priced food.

Forget the private beach.

Local supermarket, fruit and veg stalls, post office and ATM are a 15 minute walk away. A taxi back is JM$200 each.

Warning we found that the ATM wasn't that reliable .

The onsite staff Dorothy and Chris were very helpful sharing their knowledge and generally running around after us . Brownie the dog was excellent with the kids.

For a special meal out try the Cardiff. They do great food from 19.00 to 21.30 . Take a torch as the road isn't well lit. They also do lunches and sandwiches until about 14.30

Whistling Villa is ideal for a quiet and relaxing break away from the all inclusive prison's
