Perks for the Parents

This luxury home with dramatic views of the ocean and high end fixtures is perfect for relaxing with the family. The house comes with a full kitchen, family-sized dining area and very spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. The infinity-edged private swimming pool is off the back porch. It is nestled on a farm and hidden amidst pastures, fruit trees, and lush foliage on the edge of dramatic oceanfront cliffs in a rural setting. Also included is a housekeeper, cook and gardener. Groceries can be ordered by phone or email to be delivered.

Why Kids Love it

Great for kids of all ages. The nearby cove is perfect for kids to play in the sand and swim while parents can relax and watch them. If your kids wake up early - it is the perfect opportunity to take a walk outside the gate and watch the horses coming in from pasture, or take an evening stroll and enjoy watching them go out to pasture. Yard space for football, soccer and sports, plus a polo field to play on and a swing set for younger kids. A tour company on the property can arrange ATC tours, zip lining, horseback riding and swim tours.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 nights. Rates listed are for the whole property (5 bedrooms); discounts are available for a smaller group booking 3 or 4 bedrooms prorated by rooms being used. Please contact the host for further pricing details. There are a lot of open areas, but it is still very child friendly. The pool is open but can be enclosed with a safety fence. Chukka Caribbean Adventures is on the same property so both parents and kids can participate in the adventurous tours that they have to offer, at a 25% discount. There are 3 resident dogs (Charlie, Madonna and Mr. Bojangles) who guard the house at night but will respect your space. Included in the rate are friendly and attentive staff, a housekeeper, gardener and cook, who can accompany you to the grocery, selecting the best items at local markets or prepare the food you purchase. Netflix is on offer; there is WiFi but no cable TV. Airport transfers can be arranged along with local car trips. On site at the farm are gift shops, snack bar and bar. A service can be hired to deliver a crib and baby toys to the house on request.

About the Location

The house sits on a large lawn area shared with 6 other privately-owned villas, 15 minutes from Ochos Rios, 5 minutes from Runaway Bay and 1 hour from the nearest airport. You may wake up to the sound of roosters, can listen to the crickets and frogs songs at night or go for a morning and evening walk around the polo field and watch the horses returning home or going to pasture. The cliffs at Chukka Cove are dramatic and extensive. On calm days, a ladder takes you into the cool clear waters. On the adjoining villa property is a small sandy cove, safe and perfect for young children to swim and play. On days when the sea swells, a 2-minute walk along the edge of the polo field takes you to Chukka Bay, a sheltered bay where the waters are always calm and cliff jumping, swimming and snorkeling are the order of the day.

Style Notes

This 6,600 sq ft oceanfront villa with an infinity edge private pool is glamorous and luxurious. The 3 indoor courtyards bring nature in. Windows offer fabulous ocean views.

We love the hardwood floors, the tropical plants and the soft furnishings, including cowskin rugs and white linens.

Our love for the life in the tropics, sun, sea, sand, gardens, open pastures, horses, dogs and sports and adventure tours extend to our 3 girls. When we travel for vacation, we like to explore and travel countries for food and culture. We invite you to share our home and experience our real Jamaica.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Waterfalls, beaches and wildlife

Ocho Rios, on Jamaica’s north shore, is a bustling beach town with plenty for all the family to do. Hike up Dunn’s River Falls, a park with a 700-ft waterfall at its heart, shop lively craft markets or swim with dolphins at Dolphin’s Cove, surrounded by acres of tropical rainforest. Then try a few local flavors - oxtail and jerk chicken are a couple of speciality dishes, along with passion fruit, plantains and red snapper.

My family and I absolutely loved our experience at Chukka Cove residence. The house was stunning, the staff were attentive and delightful and the location was perfect and so beautiful! We enjoying exploring all the private coves, including a great snorkeling spot and a fun sandy cove that was perfect for my little kids. The house coudn't have been more kid-friendly. There was a high chair and pack-n-play, appropriate safety measures, like a fenced in yard, and some many fun bonuses for the kids to enjoy. My kids loved finding lizards and hermit crabs and visiting the turtle who lived in the house. Highly recommended!!
