We stayed with family and friends and it was truly an amazing stay. The villa is very cozy and comfortable, 3 nice size bedrooms with AC of which 2 have king beds and one has 2 beds and 3 bathrooms, one per room. Nice Kitchen, living area and the dining table is set on the veranda. The Villa comes with the outsanding services of Monica and Trudy, they prepare 2 meals per day, you choose between Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner. You have to bring the food for them to prepare it for you (which for us it was not a big deal as we stopped on the way and bought lots of local fruits and vegetables, they are easily found when driving thru the country side from Montego Bay to the South Coast) otherwise you can make arrangements with the owner Paolo who offered to purchase items if we needed. By the way, Paolo is customer service oriented gentlemen who took care of all our last minutes requests and provided us with local information. He also hand makes soaps which are used at the Villa, nice touch! The villa is located across the street from the beach but no need to worry there is not a lot of traffic. The beach is outsanding, cristal clear water and not deep at all. The sand is dark but really nice. The Villa also has a pool wich is a nice feature. We had lots of Fun and will be back.

If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of major tourist destinations in Jamaica and enjoy peace, tranquility of pristine beaches, then Treasure Beach is your destination. You can explore the many private beaches at your leisure. The people of Treasure Beach will make you feel like you are home among friends. Having stayed at both Negril and Treasure Beach, I would choose again Treasure Beach. Renting the home of Paolio and Tia was ideal for our family. We could experience all the freedom and comfort a private home can provide; and if you want to experience the cuisine of Jamaica, the staff provided by the owners will cater to your desires. B

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Villa Optima. The house, the rooms, the location, the "staff" who welcomed us and became new friends, and the FOOD! We were in Treasure Beach for a wedding and I truly believe we had the best setup of all the other guests that had come in for the event. We reserved the three bedroom villa with two other couples whom we'd never met but were friends of the bride and groom, and the house is setup perfectly. We all had private bathrooms, easy access to our individual suites, and a shared living area, kitchen, and large porch. We had 2 meals prepared for us every day by Monica and Trudy - and we were blown away with every meal. These ladies could seriously open their own catering service and blow other restaurants out of the water :) The location of Villa Optima was incredibly convenient. You are literally across the street from a small beach cove and within easy walking distance to the area's restaurants. And the care these people took with us during our stay is unmatched. The owner, Paolo, even went out of his way to return some sunglasses my husband left - he shipped them back to the US without being asked! If we ever have an opportunity to travel back to Treasure Beach, there is no question about where we would stay. Our love to all at Villa Optima!

“Perfect getaway, the beach is litterally across the road”

Second visit at Villa Optima, we love the place.
The setting is priceless, you cross the road and are on a nice sandy cove with not too much waves, as we have young children we only take a towel / sand toys and if we need to change or feed them we get back (and forth) to house (and beach) in a minute, this is priceless.
At 8 am and as of 5 pm you have the beach all for yourself. Water is clear, you can see fishes close to the rocks, observe crabs, shells (my little one loves it).
There is a nice garden in the property with pond with turtles, koi fishes, frogs (first time my son saw a "real frog", he was over the moon). Also a trampoline (kids love it, we do stargazing at night, the sky is very clear, it's amazing), swings (baby swing is broken though but there is a big kid's swing), slide, even a sturdy plastic tricycle perfect for our 4 y.o.
Bedrooms are nice, there are both home and beach towels in each bathroom, large and of good quality. One of the bathrooms has a bathtub which is nice when you travel with a baby. All rooms have AC except the living room.
Kitchen is working well, we like to bring everything with us so that we know we have everything at hand. Monica the helper / cook is very helpful and smart, she baby sitted our kids twice and averything went well. Paolo and Tia the owners have a true sense of hospitality, they even baked homemade bread for us (and homemade soap as a little gift, very nice).
Do take mosquito repellent, coils, spray and nets as there can be mosquito bites but nothing that will ruin the getaway :) The living room can get hot (as it has no AC but the room is very large so AC would not make sense), but at night it is cool, there are fans in it, and we usually have lunches on the patio where it is shady and there is the sea breeze and the sound of the waves.
Just a perfect getway in family. We treasure the moments and memories collected there.
