Holiday Rental House
Spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea await you in this bright, airy home. A short walk to shops, restaurants, and the beach, our home is located above the fray on a full acre overlooking the quiet fishing/farming village of Treasure Beach on a cool, breezy hillside. Home of “community tourism”, Treasure Beach offers all the tropical treasures of the Caribbean, along with some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. Experience it all from this scenic hillside perch! This spacious new home has two levels, each with a private entrance, 10 foot x32 foot veranda, and access to a large yard. The upper level home is owner occupied from January to April. The lower level, available for rent, has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and an open, airy living space with a well-stocked kitchenette.

A short walk to shops, restaurants, and the beach, our home is located above the fray on a full acre overlooking the quiet fishing/farming village of Treasure Beach on a cool, breezy hillside. Home of “community tourism”, Treasure Beach offers all the tropical treasures of the Caribbean, along with some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. Experience it all from this scenic hillside perch! This spacious new home has two levels, each with a private entrance, 10 foot x32 foot veranda, and access to a large yard. The upper level home is owner occupied from January to April. The lower level, available for rent, has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and an open, airy living space with a well-stocked kitchenette. French doors, in both the larger bedroom and living room, open to expansive views of the sea and the village below. From the doors and windows, to the sofa and chairs, our home is decorated with hand-made, one-of-a-kind furnishings, created by local craftsmen. Enjoy lounging inside on the cushy bamboo sofa, or relax outside on the veranda in equally comfy Adirondack chairs or the inviting hammock. Or, if you'd like a bit of sun, or to cool off, enjoy sunbathing or taking a dip in the newly constructed pool. From any of these locations, experience the cooling tropical winds that blow year round on this breezy hillside. When you're ready to go out and about, take a short walk down the hill to play a game of tennis at the sports park, or walk a little further and take a dip in the warm Caribbean Sea at one of Treasure Beach's swimming beaches. Or, stay closer to home and enjoy an afternoon chat with one of the friendly and hospitable neighbors. At the end of the day, unwind and enjoy the view from the veranda, or relax poolside while you watch the sun go down on another perfect Caribbean day. The home is a self-serve, however, if you would like to relieve yourself of any household duties, and completely relax, opt for a full-service experience, with one of our two local chefs to provide meals (if available) and housekeepers to make sure your surroundings are tidy – available with advance notice for an extra charge. If you need transportation to and from the airport, or would like to take an excursion, we can provide the names of drivers (available for an extra fee). While this home is comfortably livable, please note that it is still under development. Though no construction will occur when guests are present, our current prices reflect deep discounts until our project is complete. More

Interaction with guests
If you'd like a genuine Treasure Beach experience, take some time to walk up the hill to visit with the neighbors. Roddy and Judy, who manage our house and support guests when we are not there, share the hilltop property with their extended family members. All of them are lovely, friendly folks who extend a warm welcome to visitors to stop by to say hello. Or, you can have all the solitude you want, with the exception of an occasional visit by Roddy to water the gardens or clean the pool.

Serendipity is a very well appointed and beautiful place; the pool is a real bonus. It is a very relaxing and out-of-the-way place yet also close to anything you need (groceries, restaurants, ATM, etc.). Evelyn and Jeff are fabulous hosts: extremely friendly and helpful. We...More
