Welcome to Linga-Awile on the Beach, a lovely small and private 3 bedroom beachfront villa located on Discovery Bay's clear waters. Linga-Awile shares a delightful waterfront site with its sister property ~ Villa Coral Cove.

Without a doubt, you will feel the restful ambience of the Caribbean as soon as you enter Linga-Awile. This pretty Jamaican villa is elegantly perched on a lovely, long, large lawn with its own swimming pool and sugary white sand beach with thatched roof umbrellas for shade.

The interior design at Linga-Awile is a tasteful combination of Caribbean comfort and beauty in every way. You will always feel relaxed in Ling-Awiles’ at-home atmosphere.

If one group rents both Villa Coral Cove and Linga-Awile, all may dine together. If two different groups are in residence, meals are served inside, on individual open-air patios at each villa, or on picnic tables at the beach. The cooks will plan torchlight beach parties with chicken, chops, steaks, lobster or fresh fish served sizzling from the two outdoor grills. Each villa has its own pool, outdoor barbecue grill and seaside rinse-off shower.

Linga-Awile is a water sports lover’s dream vacation... you have kayaks and other water toys such as a swim-up deck and floating bar.

You will feel welcomed and pampered throughout your stay. On the beach, or by the pool, the staff will be on hand to look after your every need and ensure your comfort at all times.

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 town of Discovery Bay 25-minute drive to Ocho Rios
• Airport: 60 minutes to MBJ via driver

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 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 limestone 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 offshore 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 swimsuit 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 stingrays. 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.

Amazing Time!!
Amazing Time!!

We had an AMAZING time. The house was the perfect blend of comfort and 'authentic.' We loved the open-air living and dining areas and then retreating to our A/C bedrooms at night. The staff was so fun and delightful and we really enjoyed getting to know them. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect trip -- from the planning services Exceptional Villas provided to the accommodations, food, and personalities of the villa team. We loved the house and our experience there that we barely left. Thank you SO much.

The wedding went off without a hitch!

Everything was absolutely amazing. Both properties were absolutely beautiful (Coral Cove & Linga-Awile). The wedding went off without a hitch and I couldn’t have imagined the location would have been that beautiful. The staff by far was the best part of the trip they took care of us like family. The linga a while property is great for small weddings and I’d highly recommend it to anyone you have looking for a venue.
