Two bedroom Ocean Front Villa, large patio set in a tropical garden is conveniently located between the resort towns of Ocho Rios and Runaway Bay on Jamaica's North Coast, and tucked away at Chukka Cove, Villa 1 provides unique access to a truly Jamaican experience.

The front lawn was used in the filming of the recent 2016 Season 20 finale of the Bachelor with Ben Higgins while staying at Brown Shuggah, Chukka Cove!

Villa 1 is far from pretentious, it is a warm and inviting 'real' home set on a farm and hidden amidst pastures and lush foliage on the edge of dramatic ocean front cliffs in a rural setting. With recently upgraded furniture and new renovated modern kitchen it's nothing like the mega all inclusives, it sits in a lovely groomed area shared with only five other villas.

Villa 1 is the perfect place to unwind and relax. It's located on Chukka Farm, which is about an hour drive from Montego Bay International Airport but less than 20 minute from downtown Ocho Rios. Dunn's River Falls, Dolphin Cove, Rainforest Bobsleding at Mystic Mountain, and a slew of other excursions are located along the way to Ocho Rios. Horseback...

The location and villa are perfect, close to ocho rios while away from the busy cruise ships. The garden is well kept, and the sea and cove are excellent for swimming. The villa is a real "family villa" and could do with a bit less familyphoto's. it also could use some renovation. The real issue are the dogs at night,...

Management response:

Thanks for your observations Eric and we appreciate your wonderful comments. Villa 1 holds years of memories for us but you're right, times are changing and so are our guests. There are plans for improvement/upgrades which include a lot less family photos.. The neighbour with the dogs is moving out and should be gone, with the dogs. If you are...
