Ocean Front Villa 1 at Chukka Cove

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. 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 Ms. Carleen, to 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.

We booked this front villa for a week. Right in front of the villa is a cute little private cove where we snorkel. The water was pristine and calm in the morning. The housekeeper, Carlene, was a wonderful cook and very helpful in every way. Went grocery shopping with her and she kept us fed, breakfast and dinner. Visited Ochoa Rios one day and it was an educational experience. Tourist beware when shopping at the craft market and never have someone offering you as a personal shopper. When withdrawing money from ATM, go to a reputable bank. But the stay at the villa can be very rejuvenating.

From the moment we walked in, we felt at home. We swam in the sea on days when it was calm and in the pool on days when it wasn't. Everyone was super helpful!!! The rooms were nice. I loved that they were separate and that the kitchen was downstairs. We rented a car and felt completely safe coming back at the wee hours in the morning. Chukka cove has a great cliff to dive from and a nice shallow area to relax in for not so great swimmers. Just ask George to show you. Charlene made great meals and even ginger tea when my stomach was upset. Going back to Jamaica in a few months and I know where I'll be staying if it isn't already booked. Thanks for a great stay!

My family and I spent a week at Villa 1. The stay was one of a kind, the most relaxing vacation I have ever had! The natural beauty of the property was amazing. My sons 4 years old and 10 months had a blast in the pool daily, which at the time we had completely to ourselves. My husband and I had morning swims in the ocean, My family and I spent a week at Villa 1. The stay was one of a kind, the most relaxing vacation I have ever had!

Chukka Cove Villa 1 is a lovely ocean side villa located in a quiet spot outside St Ann's. It's a beautiful area and the villa itself has great indoor and outdoor spaces. Carlene cooks and looks after the place and she is lovely. Great cook and a kind soul that is super easy to get on with. She cooked a lot of knockout dishes, but the dishes with ackee and breadfruit fresh from the tree beside the house were a highlight. The owners were totally professional and easy to deal with. The villa is well maintained. The day we left they were starting some renovations, so I imagine it is now even nicer than when we were there, and we had zero complaints. The cove down the lane is great for swimming and snorkeling. There was a supermarket a 15 minute walk away and the area around was quiet and completely hassle free. Great for a relaxed Jamaican get away.

This place is a small part of paradise! For a 5 and 3 year old the pool, cove and snorkelling are just perfect and the views from the villa are stunning. Carlene is the most amazing housekeeper and even the fussy kids loved her food which was delicious! The villa was spacious and very clean. One evening we went out and carlene was able to arrange babysitting. Errol was a wonderful driver. We had a few minor complaints. The dogs woke us barking at 5.30am several mornings and Netflix was a bit temperamental. Unfortunately thought there Was one problem that did spoil the trip a bit - the villa by the pool was being renovated and the drilling and banging were so loud a few days that it really spoiled the time by the pool and at the villa those days. That aside, we would highly recommend this place, especially with young kids.

Best vacation ever. Very authentic Jamaican experience. The villa and property were beautiful. If you are looking for a vacation where you lay on the beach all day, this is not it. Here you will discover another sort of Jamaica. Crystal clear coves, perfect for snorkeling and swimming. The continuous sound of the sea crashing against coral cliffs as you relax under the shade of the trees. Authentic Jamaican cuisine prepared each day by the fabulous Carlene. This is a place away from the droves of tourists, so quiet, so idealic. I would recommend renting a car during your stay, you will want to go out and explore.

We just returned from a fantastic stay at Villa 1. Carlene more than lives up to her reputation as a fantastic host. Her amazing cooking was only surpassed by her warmth, charm, and thoughtfulness. She and the rest of the team at Chukka Cove made our stay worry-free and truly relaxing. By the time we left, we felt like family. The grounds of the property are stunning and immaculately maintained. We spent many hours relaxing and talking while watching the waves crash beyond the patio. Breakfast often included fresh fruit from the trees on-site, and Carlene made a point to show us the different varieties and had us try each one. The private cove was a relaxing place to visit and is a very short walk from the villa. The water is deep enough (quite deep in some places) to jump in from the rocks, but shallow enough for snorkeling. The arrangements made by the entire team (thank you, Trish!) were perfect and it made celebrating our anniversary that much more special. We definitely plan on returning!

We just retuned from Jamaica. We stayed here at Villa 1, words cannot describe how PERFECT this spot was for our family of four. The food was the BEST!!!!! The view and amenities were perfect! We did several of the Chukka Adventure Tours, Blue Hole, Good Hope and Dunns River. I could go on forever praising how much we enjoyed this spot. So I'll sum it by saying this: I've stayed at many of the all inclusive hotels on the island, and after staying at Villa 1, I will never visit another all inclusive hotel. We got so much more for our money staying here! You will NOT be disappointed! One love, Robert and family

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, they bark all night long, a good night rest is difficult to get, this certainly needs improvemenr

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 riding and ATV adventures originate at Chukka Farm. The villa itself is situated along the shoreline, at least 150 meters off the main road, so it's very very quiet at night. The only thing you hear are crickets chirping, an occasional dog barking, and the water crashing up against the rocks. You can choose to go swimming in the small cove or in the pool, both adjacent to the villa. The staff, Carlene and Janet, were wonderful! I felt like I was home among family they treated me so well--kinda like going to grandma's house in the country for the weekend or holiday. Carlene cooked amazing meals everyday! If you want to get around, they'll provide a driver. I rented a car from Salem Car Rental, located about 5 minutes up the street. I caught a taxi and was there in no time. Overall, I had an amazing time! I will definitely be going back!

Un lieu extraordinaire, une végétation luxuriante excellemment bien entretenue, l’océan qui joue sur les rochers aux portes de la villa, une petite crique en contrebas, une piscine impeccable : parfait pour se déconnecter des turbulences de la société. La villa, vaste, très propre, très bien équipée : ventilateurs intérieurs et extérieur, climatisation dans chaque chambre. Terrasse protégée du soleil, ouverte sur l’océan, autre petite terrasse près des chambres orientée de même. Chambres spacieuses avec salle de bain ou d’eau et WC attenants, excellente literie. Et puis, Carleen, excellente cuisinière, femme pleine de gentillesse qui prend soin des hôtes, répond à toute demande, ne cherche qu’à faire plaisir : une perle ! Un taxi fiable conduit par Thomas permet d’aller visiter les alentours en toute sécurité ; tarifs fixes et affichés. Un veilleur de nuit est présent de 6h pm à 6h am. À proximité, un centre équestre, un bar et une petite boutique soignée. Des activités peuvent être réservées à cet endroit : balade à cheval dans l’eau, ATV, excursion vers les chutes en catamaran avec ambiance festive. Petit point à savoir : du personnel travaille sur le terrain 7 jours sur 7, tôt à cause de la chaleur. Bronzage intégral exclu pour les pudiques ! Merveilleux et inoubliable séjour pour nous
