Welcome to A Summer Place on the Beach, a luxury 7 bedroom private beachfront villa nestled by the bluer than blue waters of Discovery Bay.

Villa Summer Place is in a superb location on its own sandy beach, idyllic for a Caribbean family vacation. Its surroundings are mesmerizing panoramas of azure water and lush green hills. Multicoloured bougainvillaea, hibiscus, sea grape, almond, ginger lilies and coconut adorn the manicured grounds. A large side yard is a perfect place for children to play to their hearts' content.

The interior design is immaculately tasteful with a combination of style and comfort in all the right ways. The large open plan living room features an entertainment centre with a 30" DSS television, VCR and assortment of videos for all ages. French doors open from the living room to a 1,500-square-foot, beautifully furnished veranda. Charmingly draped with beautiful Thunbergia blossoms, the veranda is the heart of this happy home. This breezy veranda is a paradise for reading, playing games, snoozing, watching hummingbirds feed on the flowers or just taking in the magnificent surrounds of natural beauty. You will also be quite near the pool for a refreshing dip. From the pool terrace, it's only a few steps onto the 100' white sand beach. Guests are invited to use the snorkelling equipment and sea kayaks for great fun on the beautiful water.

Delicious home-cooked meals include Jamaican, American and Continental specialities. Memorable meals are served on the terrace or in the more formal dining area on a 250-year-old family heirloom table that seats 14. On special occasions, dinner is served in the pool gazebo or the main gazebo at the end of the jetty. The waterfront gazebo is also a favourite spot for massages, cocktails and watching glorious sunsets across the bay.

This stunning villa is perfect for events like family reunions or evening a wedding. Check out more of our Caribbean Wedding Villas here.

Puerto Seco Beach – Complimentary to guests on Discovery Bay
Located near Fortlands Road's entrance (a 10-15 minute walk or 3-minute drive from your villa), is the newest water park & beach club to the North Coast. For various fees, guests may enjoy the large aqua park, scuba diving, snorkelling, kayaks & paddleboards. The club hosts a full-service bar and restaurant as well as private beach cabanas or sun loungers for rent.

This villa is a beachfront home. It should be noted that beaches change their shape and size from day to day, week to week and month to month, mainly as a response to seasonal waves, currents and tides. Every effort has been made to depict the beach in front of this property, but temporary changes may occur.

Area description

• Town: 3 minute walk to Discovery Bay
• Airport: 60 minutes to MBJ via driver

If you ever wish to leave A Summer Place during your vacation, colourful Ocho Rios is just 25 minutes east of Discovery Bay.

Ocho Rios, which is located 54 miles north of Kingston, is built around a wide bay with a sweeping arc of hotel lined beach. It is well geared to meet the cruise passengers whom are often present. The chief attraction is Island Village which is located at the far west end of Main Street. It is a slick collection of shops, restaurants and bars with a private beach and a great museum called the Reggae Xplosion which is dedicated completely to Reggae – Jamaica’s best know export! The museum even includes a night club where guides demonstrate the latest moves. There are lots of wonderful things to do in and around Ocho Rios including:

Shaw Park Botanical Gardens
Located 550 feet above the sea, the gardens have beautiful views of Ocho Rios and are home to many rare plants and trees as well as a very pretty waterfall.

Coyaba River Garden
Also with wonderful views, Coyaba Garden’s are more compact than Shaw Park with paths threading past ponds and streams. It also has an interesting museum dedicated to the local history.

Dolphin Cove & Dunn's River Falls
Just west of Ocho Rios is probably Jamaica’s most famous attraction – the Dunn’s River Falls. It is a magnificent cascade of multiple tiers pouring over smooth lime stone rocks, encircled by interesting ferns and foliage and ending at a beautiful cove with white sands and crystal clear waters. There is also a great reef off shore and therefore it’s well worth bringing some snorkelling gear.
Climbing up the falls is the thing to do. When you enter you can take a guide who will assist you in finding an easy route up. Remember to wear a swim suit and also gym shoes as you will undoubtedly be drenched by the time you reach the top! Dunn’s Falls is quite touristy and developed (it can get busy when the cruise ships come in) with plenty of car parking and a large craft market at the end but it’s well worth a visit.
Practically opposite Dunn’s River is Dolphin Cove which is a kind of Mini-theme Park which provides the opportunity to swim with dolphins and sting rays. You will also get an opportunity to get up close and personal with macaws, snakes, iguanas and goats.

Green Grotto Caves
Located 22 miles west of Ocho Rios on the main road between The Runway and Discovery Bay, The Green Grotto is an extensive range of limestone caverns with a subterranean lake and plenty of impressive stalactites and stalagmites. The history of Green Grotto is really interesting as they were originally used by the Amerindians as a place of worship and later as a hideout by Spanish troops.

Mystic Mountain
Located close to Ocho Rios Mystic mountain is definitely one of the top attractions in Jamaica. There is a really good cable car ride, a zip line, Mystic water slide, infinity edge pool, bobsled track and a restaurant with a great view of the Bay of Ocho Rios! It’s really well done and great for the adventurous at heart.

Bob Marley Center & Mausoleum
Located 25 miles south west of Ocho Rios, high in the St Ann hills amongst gorgeous landscape of grassy cattle pastures, lies the Bob Marley museum where he was born and spent his early childhood before he moved to Kingston at the age of 13. With a rasta red, gold and green flag flapping in the wind, the compound is centred around the tiny wooden shack where the Marley’s lived. The mausoleum itself is a simple whitewashed building holding Bob Marley’s tomb.

It is absolutely gorgeous, more than you can ever imagine.
It is absolutely gorgeous, more than you can ever imagine.

My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and renewed our vows. You can look at all the pictures of "A Summer Place on the Beach" on the internet, but none does this property justice. It is absolutely gorgeous, more than you can ever imagine. It was the perfect place for our ceremony. However, it would not be as amazing if the staff were not who they are. They are the icing on the cake that will make you not want to leave. They were very accommodating, all you had to do was ask and you received. Chef Maylin; Butler Derval; Housekeeper/Laundress - Norine; Gardner - Cat, plus all the others were extremely the best care takers ever. They went above and beyond to ensure we were happy. The grounds of the villa were kept immaculate at all times. We had 8 staff and we, a group of 12, appreciate each and everyone of them. Their smiles and friendliness will always be remembered until we return. This was an awesome experience that will last a life time.

Hi Emma, We really enjoyed Jamaica and the villa. We had good time there. The staff was very supportive and helpful with food and everything. They catered to our special needs throughout our stay. The villa is kept up well. We enjoyed the beach, the pool, and the amenities. We would definitely go back to the same villa. We will let you know when we take a next trip and looking to book a villa.

Expert Reviews

An amazing villa for a big group!

Expert Review Pic A Summer Place is an amazing villa for a big group of family and friends to just relax and have fun. This villa has lots of space and has something that every age group will enjoy. The staff here are so lovely, friendly and professional. The chef here is incredible with mouth-watering Jamaican, American and Continental specialities. The one thing I would say is that you would definitely need a car or your own private driver in Discovery Bay as it is not in a very touristy area...but that is something that many like about this area. If you simply want to relax and not have any agenda... This is your villa!
