Description


Welcome to Scotch on the Rocks, a stunning 5 bedroom oceanfront villa with wonderful views of the Caribbean Sea, just minutes from lively Ocho Rios.

Scotch on the Rocks is a charming 5 bedroom villa overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Its ideal location is a privately-nestled cove between two of Jamaica’s most prestigious hotels: Royal Plantation 5-star boutique hotel and the legendary Jamaica Inn. While completely private, Scotch on the Rocks has its own private waterfront with a small patch of sand for enjoying snorkelling.

Stone steps lead from the main house down a slope to a private cove and fabulous crystal clear cove, wonderful for swimming, floating, snorkelling and kayaking. Beside the waterfront, the deck is an outdoor shower. The gardener will place chaises on the seaside deck, and the butler will serve lunch there if you wish to stay on the waterfront all day.

This deluxe waterfront villa in Ocho Rios offers great swimming and breathtaking ocean views all day long as well as glorious sunsets by evening. The villa’s private cove and water access are perfect for enjoying a morning of snorkelling. Complimentary snorkel gear is provided as well as 2 complimentary 2-seater sea kayaks. The over-the-water deck is perfect for enjoying hours of sunning.

Scotchie, as it is affectionately called, was originally built by the late Scottish Lord, The Earl of Mansfield. Today it is owned by members of the Red Stripe Beer family. Present owners have extensively renovated the home with a concentration on accommodating families. Victorian fretwork and warm mahogany floors are original, while Italian Travertine reflects recent renovations. Interior design is a tasteful eclectic mix of high-tech amenities combined with Jamaican and English antiques.

The iconic gathering place is the large furnished verandah overlooking the vast expanse of deep blue Caribbean Sea that is Scotchie's "front yard." Sitting here genuinely feels like lounging on the deck of a ship with nothing in sight but blue sea and sky. It's heaven.

This villa is perfect for weddings and offers beautiful settings to take beautiful photos. Check out more of our beautiful Wedding Villas in Jamaica here.

The staff went above expectations on every aspect!
The staff went above expectations on every aspect!

Noreen, I wanted to let you know that we truly enjoyed our week at "Scotch on the Rocks". The staff went above expectations on every aspect. From Brian waiting on us hand and foot; Cherry & Elvis being the best cooks that we could ever ask for. Everything was homemade and delicious. Pat taking care of our rooms and turning down our beds at night and then even cleaning and folding our clothes was never expected! All with genuine smiles on their face and heart. The house was just as the pictures suggested. Just beautiful. Our driver Michael did an awesome job as well. He made suggestions to visit "Blue Hole" and "Luminous Lagoon" and we enjoyed this as well. I appreciated your attention to detail and assistance last minute. Thanks again.

It was amazing!
It was amazing!

It was amazing and the expectations from pictures and description were perfect. You helped with all the information on details prior to which helped. The staff was great and were present for just the right times. We didn't quite need the driver much as I suspected as we didn't go off property too much- the one tour we did also included transportation as well, however it was convenient when we did. Thanks again!

Guartanteed a memorable stay...

Expert Review Pic This home is amazing- beautiful and spacious. It has both indoor and outdoor living space with magnificent views from every room. The staff in this villa are wonderful...Bryan, Cherry, Pat, Elvis and Richard will ensure all your needs are taken care of! The location is great for getting around, most major attractions of the area are within 10-15 minute drive. Although there isn't a beach at the house there is a pristine sandy beach within walking/kayaking distance. However, the crystal clear ocean by the pier is perfect for swimming and snorkelling. You will be guaranteed a memorable stay at Scotch on the Rocks.
