    Villa Hikaru sits atop a sandy knoll with a commanding view of the Caribbean just beyond our beachfront gate. Our staff will shop for you, and prepare and serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to your tastes. It's like a small, very personal hotel!
    Most of our neighbors are village fishermen; one of the late-afternoon joys is to watch for them from our shaded patio as they return from a 50-mile trip to sea, then go down to help Miss Vanessa buy your meals.
    You can walk all-but-deserted beaches for miles. There's a tourist area a mile and a half away (home of the famous Jake's) with several good restaurants -- but most folks think Miss Venesia's cuisine tops the restaurants.
    A trip up the Black River, one of the world's great marine morasses, is special - reached by ca...

    Things to Do
    Additional Location Information
    Treasure Beach is the gem of the unspoiled South Coast. In a rain shadow (half the rainfall of Ocho Rios), hotel development was long stymied by lack of piped water. (For years, our drinking water was from sparse rain stored in a 16,000 tank.) The result is an area where fishing is still the predominant way of life. Our neighbors welcome tourists, but make their living at sea; going down the beach a few hundred yards to buy dinner when they come in from "far sea" is one of the favorite things to do.

Villa Hikaru is one of the oldest villas available in Billy's Bay and pricer relative to others in the area. That being said, it is a testament to the pioneering characteristic of it's owners and the community in which it occupies. It has a lovely pool and vista of the local bay and is in a relatively safe area of... more

A group of us stayed at Hikaru several years ago. (I listed July 2010 because it wouldn't go back any further) We absolutely loved Hikaru and the staff. The house and grounds are gorgeous, clean and very comfortable. The food was spectacular! We enjoyed the fresh water pool as well as snorkeling right from the beach. The owners were fantastic... more
