About the property

Lansdowne Is Located In The Prestigious Upton In The Hills Above Ocho Rios

RESERVE NOW FOR CHRISTMAS 2018!!!

Lansdowne offers FREE RETURN TRANSFERS for all guests from/to Montego Bay airport as well as Kingston Airport.

Lansdowne is located in the prestigious Upton Country Club in the hills above Ocho Rios, a 15 minute drive by car and is surrounded by spectacular mountain views. The villa offers spacious accommodation on two floors as well as a beautiful manicured garden providing a lovely setting for daytime and evening relaxation. The villa does NOT have a swimming pool but the popular Reggae Beach is a 10 minute drive away and even closer is the mouth of the White River at Kaz Kreol Beach Lodge. There is also popular 'Irie River' on the White River, ideal for family outings and 15 minutes walk from the property.

Lansdowne is ideal for large groups especially Family Reunions, many of which we have recently hosted!

The manicured garden is a tranquil area covering an acre of land and has tall coconut trees and tropical plants with exotic blooms. Wrapped around the house is a large U shaped verandah, ideal for breakfast or dinner or simply entertaining.

The main floor of Lansdowne which is on the upper level plays host to 3 bedrooms each with its distinctive decorative theme and having views across to the hills. The 'bamboo bedroom' being a favourite with guests. The main bedroom as well as Bedroom 3 have their own private terraces, where breakfast can be served.

On the lower level there are two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

The Chinese inspired Dining Room, large kitchen, TV room and beautifully decorated Living Room complete the main floor layout. The spacious Living Room features windows which open onto the wrap around verandah revealing beautiful views of the front and side gardens and beyond towards the hills. The furnishing is classic colonial and contemporary which gives it a comfortable and elegant feel.

The Living Room also features a games table with cards and dominoes as well as a handy folder with maps and information leaflets on sightseeing tours and places of interest.

The Dining Room painted in Ralph Lauren 'dining room red' can accommodate up to 12 or more persons, for a large dinner party. The TV Room or entertaining room is equipped with Cable TV, music system and an IPod docking station. There is a large collection of magazines and 'coffee table' books to enjoy.

There are Ceiling Fans in the Living Room, Dining Room, TV/Entertainment Room, the three bedrooms on the main floor as well as the Garden Bedroom on the Ground floor. We do not have air conditioning as the villa is generally cooled by a through breeze.

With close proximity to Sandals Golf and Country Club, many guests enjoy a walk through picturesque Upton enroute to playing golf.

Lansdowne is fully staffed with a housekeeper and a cook who will prepare all your traditional Jamaican dishes and generally take care of you during your stay. The groundsman attends to the garden and grounds and can take you on a tour of the 'banana walk' where we grow our own bananas, plantains, pineapples, pumpkins, gung gu peas, mangoes, oranges and avocados (jamaican pears) for the table.

Notes:
The prestigious area of Upton is located in the cool hills above Ocho Rios. A 15 minute drive from Ocho Rios will take you to Upton which was formerly a Pimento plantation and today still has large areas under cultivation. From the Villa there are interesting walks to explore, see the Great House at the top of the hill, visit the horses grazing in the nearby fields or simply admire the varied Jamaican Flora and Fauna. Did you know? Over Three thousand species of plants grow on the island, and 27% of them are found nowhere else on Earth! THE TOWN OF OCHO RIOS: Ocho Rios is considered one of the premier resorts on Jamaica's North Coast with its year round warm weather, sun drenched beaches, towering mountains, world renowned waterfall and with a number of sightseeing attractions for the family. Ocho Rios which was once a fishing village now offers accommodation ranging from the large all inclusive resorts to beautiful villas set beside the sea or sitting on hilltops as is Lansdowne.

Beautiful property and gracious staff!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Lansdowne! The staff, Collette, Kadiann, and Peter, were just the best - warm, friendly, and made us feel right at home. Collette's cooking was superb and just what we hoped for. The property is so beautiful with amazing views of the mountains and lush greenness of Jamaica! A bit further from Ocho Rios than we thought, so it is absolutely necessary to have your own vehicle, but certainly a wonderful property for a family gathering. Our Jamaican homecoming was enhanced by this wonderful lodging. Thanks so much for a great time!

Pleasant Vocation!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is located in a quiet country club with a beautiful landscape. It was well maintained, beautifully decorated, very clean, and spacious. My family and my friend’s family (a total of 9 people) stayed there during the Christmas holidays, and we were all very happy to have chosen this home. The owner was very professional and very gracious. The house staffs were very nice and helpful. They prepared breakfast and dinner for us and provided the BEST local Jamaican food experience we had. When we went out to see tourist attractions, we hired a driver recommended by the host. The driver, Richard, is a knowledgeable, reliable and very pleasant person to work with. Otherwise, we spent the day at the villa relaxing on the front balcony or walking around the neighborhood. We will definitely return to this villa if we ever visit Jamaica again and would recommend this home to anyone looking for a great, relaxing place to stay.

It means a lot to us to receive a Review such as yours. We are striving to offer the very best we can in accommodation and service within this price range and we are happy to know that our efforts are being rewarded, by way of your Review. It was our pleasure and I will pass on a copy of your Review to the ladies, especially to Valrie. She was very happy to see the group enjoy their first taste of Jamaican cuisine. Kind regards and we hope to welcome you back on another occasion. Bridgette

THE TOWN OF OCHO RIOS:

Ocho Rios is considered one of the premier resorts on Jamaica's North Coast with its year round warm weather, sun drenched beaches, towering mountains, world renowned waterfall and with a number of sightseeing attractions for the family.

Ocho Rios which was once a fishing village now offers accommodation ranging from the large all inclusive resorts to beautiful villas set beside the sea or sitting on hilltops with commanding views, one of which is Lansdowne, in Upton.

ATTRACTIONS:

Attractions include a visit to Mystic Mountain, a tour of a working sugar plantation and horseback riding on the beach. For the sports enthusiast, play golf or tennis, scuba dive to a sunken wreck or participate in a polo match.

Dunn's River Falls is no doubt one of the areas most impressive attractions with its crystal clear water cascading over 600ft of rock down to the sea. These falls are regarded as one of the best in the world and a holiday would not be complete without a visit.
