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.

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. Here in the country you may wake up to the sound of roosters, and listen to the crickets and frogs songs at night. Of course, like all farms, the villa has its own resident cat fondly called 'Puss' and the friendly neighbour dogs occasionally come for a visit. So immerse yourself in the real Jamaica and soak your cares away in the turquoise waters of the cove or in the private pool used only by Chukka Cove villa residents. A safe place to vacation without being locked in a compound! Your private paradise has a master and second bedroom both with full ensuite bathrooms. The master suite includes a separate living area with futon, desk and sliding doors out to a small covered balcony with an incredible ocean view, the perfect place for your morning coffee. Sleeps 4 adults and 1 child or teen. Downstairs, the dining room boasts large folding doors that open onto an expansive furnished patio shaded by a passion fruit vine. A powder room, kitchen and laundry room complete the lower level. The cliffs at Chukka Cove are dramatic and extensive, great for exploring or simply listening to the sound of the waves crashing ashore. On calm days, a ladder leads in cool clear waters. On property is a small sandy cove, perfect and safe for young children to swim and play. On days when the sea swells are up and you seek calmer waters, a two minute walk along the edge of the polo field takes you to the spectacular Chukka Cove, a sheltered bay where the waters are always calm and cliff jumping, swimming and snorkeling are the order of the day. What`s included? • Friendly and attentive staff included, led by Carleen, keep the villa spotless and prepare authentic Jamaican dishes. They can either accompany you to the grocery, selecting the best items at local markets, or prepare the food you purchase. • Netflix – where we are located, there is no cable TV • Airport transfers can be arranged with professional and friendly experienced drivers, as well as trips into town for shopping. On site at the farm are gift shops, snack bar and bar. • A 25% discount on all Chukka Tours. The largest tour operator in Jamaica, award winning Chukka offers multiple locations and tours for your enjoyment. Located at the original tour location Chukka Polo farm you will see over 100 horses head to the stables each morning for the famous horseback ride n swim tour. Tours depart from the farm just a short walk from the Villa. Trish - Our reservation's manager, takes care of all bookings. Originally from Jamaica, now resides in Canada. She's more than happy to answer any questions you may have. More

About the neighbourhood
Villa 1 at Chukka Cove sits on the cliffs just off the North Coast Highway between Runaway Bay and Ocho Rios in the parish of Saint Ann. Villa 1 was used in the filming of the 1973 film 'Papillion' starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman, and in 1985 Walt Disney's mini series 'Return to Treasure Island' was also filmed at Chukka Cove. Airport transfers can be arranged, as well as trips into town for shopping, or you can rent a car online or at the airport. Award winning Chukka offers multiple locations and tours for your enjoyment. Villa 1 is located at the original Chukka polo farm location. Tours depart just a short walk from the Villa. On site at the farm are gift shops, snack bar and bar.

Guests can either rent a vehicle and travel off property by themselves but we highly suggest proceed with caution and ensure awareness at all times. It is highly recommended that our guests use known licensed transportation or excursion operators at all times. Chukka has complimentary round trip transportation for all excursions.
