Historic villa in Port Maria
Our Jamaican villa rental is privately nestled on a tropical hillside between Ocho Rios & Port Maria, Jamaica. This spacious villa boasts a breathtaking panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea and Blue Mountains. A van and driver are available for tours & airport transfers. Driving in Jamaica can be quite challenging and stressful and the owner offers a package deal of villa/van/driver for rent for $1750.00 per week. (No insurance cost , no liability for any damages, includes ONE airport pickup & ONE airport departure, includes experienced driver knowledgeable of Jamaica.) RENTER PAYS FOR FUEL. Typically guests go into Port Maria on the first morning to buy groceries and change money. Lawrence will drive & our manager, Tashae rides along to help you change money at Western Union & help purchase groceries. You can use a credit card at the grocery store, but during your daily travels you will need Jamaican money to spend. You will have a safe in your room to store your valuables. We also have a COOK AVAILABLE for a small fee. You can plan your meals with her once you arrive & pay her directly. It works out nice for the guests to have her cook some of the evening meals. You can be out all day exploring the island and have a nice meal ready for you when you arrive back at the villa. It's only $10 USD for her to prepare, serve & clean up for each meal for 2-4 guests & $15 for 4 or more guests. You pay for the groceries. You are minutes away from some of Jamaica's finest beaches and exciting nightlife of Ocho Rios. Dunn's River Falls, Rio Grande Rafting, Blue Mountain Biking, Blue Lagoon, Black Sand Beach, Boston Bay and Port Antonio are just some of our guests favorite places to see and experience. As you look out to the endless wonder of the Caribbean Sea, you are awed by this exotic and soothing paradise.

4/5 Good

Enjoyed our visit their in Jamaica. The house has a great view and quiet. The house manager and driver (Tashae and Michael) are very nice and helpful. A small ac in the bedrooms would be nice. Suggestion to future renters, is to go to Ochos Rios for your groceries not the local supermarket. Me and my family had a great time!.

A picture is worth a thousand words but On Top of World Villa will leave you speechless
While it is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, the picturesque views from The On Top of the World Villa will leave you speechless . . . The best part is that’s only the beginning! As you ascend the rolling hills of the property and are met by a beautifully manicured and artistically designed landscape, that provides the perfect preview of what is be expected from the villa itself. Before you can even experience the full delights of the house, you are greeted by the warm and friendly villa host (Tashae) who from the moment you arrive until the second you depart does an absolutely phenomenal job of making you feel less like a guest and more like family, without her energy the experience would not be the same at all. She is truly an asset. And then the Villa... the perfect mesh of home and holiday! Super comfy beds, lots of closet space, adequate temperature and insect control accommodations, extremely clean kitchen and bathrooms, and just the right amount of sunlight peeking into the windows each morning as it rises. If you’re one who enjoys rising with the sun you’ll find company in the songs of the roosters who erase any need for an alarm clock! After settling in and deciding on your meal schedule I recommend that you speak with Tashae and Charmaine and let their culinary expertise guide you as you go into town and source the ingredients for what will surely be some of the best food you’ve ever had in your life. It’s a good thing there is not need for socks in the villa because one taste of Charmaine’s food would surly blow them away! Sugar, spice and everything nice, if Charmaine is cooking you’re covered. Whether you’ve got a detailed itinerary or you’re just winging it,Michael will make sure you get there safely and that you’re properly prepared for your destination. An individual truly committed to the service of his duty there is no reasonable request that Michael will not intended to fulfill. The members of the On Top Of The World Villa staff and the surrounding elements and people of the community will make your Paradise experience even more heavenly! No matter how you feel upon arriving to the villa, while you’re there (and for a few days after you leave) you will know what it feels like to be at peace, and to enjoy the view as you sit on top of the world. Suggestions: Just some basic cosmetic updates throughout the house: wall cracks, master suite veranda& suggestions about local attractions & back room wifi would be nice

Amazing hidden gem
I found this location in the VRBO website and after comparing with a couple others, decided on this location. It maybe a little difficult to find on the first try, but it was easy after that. The view is to literally die for! The area is pretty quiet and tranquil and also close to a few attractions. I will definitely be going back! Oh yeah Tashae is great. Always available to help or if you just have questions ☺️

Amazing true Jamaica experience
Wow! What an incredible experience and a very solid value. Was really not sure what to expect when traveling to Jamaica and I was a bit apprehensive about traveling there based on some media reports about crime, but we decided to be "adventurous." I am so glad we did. This home has 4 bedrooms & 2 1/2 baths and fit our 5 adults & 2 children incredibly comfortably. The views are breathtaking from the home. The home is probably about 10-15 minutes from town along a mountain road (which is a bit rough) that provides isolation from the business of the town. The option exists to hire a driver for the week and that was absolutely the right call. The driver was exceptional and friendly and was an incredible addition to our family for the week. There is a on-site house hostess (she has separate living quarters) who makes sure the house is well kept and maintained. And then the options exists (that we took advantage of) to have a cook prepare your meals. There is no A/C, which at first we thought would be problematic, but we fairly quickly adjusted and enjoyed the fresh air that usually was reasonably pleasant. So, every day we woke up to birds chirping, fresh mountain air and breathtaking views. We would then go out for the day with our driver to whatever adventure we had planned and then return to the home to an amazing freshly prepared Jamaican meal hot and ready to serve. How can you beat that?!?!? This was my 3rd time in Jamaica ... 1st time for a day on a cruise ship, 2nd time for 3 days at and all inclusive resort and then this time for a full week. With our meals prepared, an immaculately kept house and a private driver we enjoyed a true Jamaican experience at an incredible value. This made for one heck of an amazing trip with memories that will last a lifetime. I can without hesitation recommend this property. Keith & team ... thank you for such a wonderful vacation! We are truly grateful!

Beat all our expectations!
Our family of four adults just got back from our first Jamaica trip. We stayed at the villa the week of Christmas. Before the trip, I was a little apprehensive about the location of the villa . We had included the van and driver with our rental and it was the best decision we made. It made a huge difference and it made our trip very enjoyable . I strongly recommend this option to anyone renting the villa . Lawrence our driver was very friendly, helpful and truly amazing. He helped us plan our daily sightseeing, made sure we were safe at all times and was with us the whole time taking good care of us. We cannot thank him enough for making our trip very memorable. Ocho Rios and all the main attractions are about 45 minutes drive from the villa.The villa itself is charming and the pictures do not do it justice. It sits on top of a hill with a panoramic view of the surroundings. The rooms are very spacious and the beds were comfortable. We were out on the veranda most mornings, sipping our coffee and enjoying the beautiful view. A couple of suggestions that would make the stay even better would be to provide extra blankets,bed linen and towels and include small soaps/ shampoos for initial use. On the whole this villa beat our expectations and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to experience the real Jamaica!
