“Idyllic getaway”

Shakti is a gem, steps from the surf of the South Coast of Jamaica. An idyllic spot for those looking to unwind. The staff Audrey (housekeeper/cook ) and Sheldon (groundskeeper) were wonderful. Shakti has everything you need and the owner has tastefully appointed decorations and art which contribute to the charm of this villa. Treasure Beach itself is a sleepy, rustic area with wonderfully friendly people. The staff at Treasure Tours, Rebecca and Debiann were a pleasure to deal with.

“A small piece of paradise”
Reviewed March 14, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

I recently had the good fortune to be invited by friends to accompany them for a weekend at Shakti Home although a small 2 bedroom cottage it is beautifully appointed and with great attention to detail. The decor is really charming and the location is sublime (right on the sea) A mere few steps away. The staff are very friendly and accommodating and the cook Audry is an excellent cook. We all had a lovely and relaxing weekend in paradise.

“Treasure Beach- private perfection!”
Reviewed December 24, 2011 for a stay in December 2011

Just returned from a 5 day stay and I miss absolutely everything about Shakti Home! Gorgeous property, the rooms were beautifully designed and appointed with every detail suggesting refined comfort. The property is perfectly situated for privacy and for true beach living. Treasure Beach is a hidden gem (pardon the pun,) and the people are so hospitable it was very difficult to leave. We have stayed at some of the top resorts in Ocho Rios and Negril, but Shakti Home was a true unparalleled experience! Cannot begin to say enough about the food and gracious service from Miss Audrey and Sheldon (and everyone with Treasure Tours.) We feel so lucky to have found this home away from home, and hope only to return very soon!

“A little piece of paradise!”
Reviewed November 7, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

Just back from our second stay at Shakti House. It’s truly a special place. Peaceful, serene, private, cozy accommodations with cool island décor and furnishings, and our backyard - the beach. What more can you ask for?

Audrey is the housekeeper and terrific cook and Sheldon is always there to keep a watchful eye on the property, help Audrey, and is at your beckon call when you need him. He’s a pro at opening a coconut (plentiful) for some refreshing coconut water. Audrey’s cooking is the best in Treasure Beach, no need to go anywhere else to eat. The house and location is so beautiful, you won’t want to.

Shakti House and Treasure Beach are ideal for a “get away from it all” vacation. If you are looking for peace and quiet, cozy accommodations and local food and culture, this is the area of Jamaica you want to be and the place you want to rent.

Shakti has 2 bedrooms and baths (master is open to the sea in front), a cute outdoor shower, full kitchen, open great room and gorgeous patio with full view of the sea in front of the house. There are lounge chairs for lazing in the sun or shade and a cozy hammock steps from the sea under a coconut palm for napping or reading. There’s also a covered pavilion to the side of the house also steps from the sea for watching the colorful sunsets or practicing yoga or meditation. I teach and practice yoga and practicing here captures the true meaning of yoga – being one with all things and nature. Every wonderful minute is yoga: swimming in the sea, eating amazing food, marveling at the night sky littered with stars, the sound of the sea lulling you to sleep and simply enjoying the company of who you are with.

If you go: bring a good bug spray if mosquitoes find you appetizing, snorkeling gear and reef shoes, powerful sunscreen and wine (we packed in a cooler in suitcase – all other alcohol plentiful). Booking via Treasure Tours, you send in extra $ for food, prepare a menu of desired food/meals/drinks and Audrey stocks the house prior to arrival. Treasure Tours can also arrange the airport transfers. Don’t bother to bring a lot of clothes – you don’t need much and you’ll look funny wearing anything fancy.

We usually rent homes when we island travel and Shakti has been the best so far. We will return again and again.

“My Second Home!”

I've stayed at Shakti Home three times and am definitely looking forward to return visits. I LOVE this house, The open floor plan means you are never away from the sound and sights of the sea. Wherever you sit, outside on the veranda or inside the main room on a cushy sofa or snug on a window seat in the bedroom your view of the ocean and sky is limitless and all absorbing. The house is supremely comfortable--never a bad night's sleep at Shakti! Last but not at all least, Audrey, the housekeeper, is without a doubt the best cook in Treasure Beach whipping up fabulous Jamaican breakfasts and beautifully presented dinners to order.

“Peace, beauty and tranquility...Jamaican style”
Reviewed October 16, 2010 for a stay in September 2010

If you are looking for a hidden haven far away from the worries and stress of the world then this is the place to be. With the beach a stones throw from the lounge and ocean breezes that come through the house there really is nothing to do but let the pressure of the world float away with the evening tide. The caretaker was easily accessible for all our needs and the cook Audrey's jerk chicken...stunning! The house had all the comforts you need but you definitely need to be prepared to slow yourself right down. This is not the place for anyone that is looking for nightclubs and busy restaurants to go to at night. Shakti home is ideal for solo traveler's, couples or small families who are very happy with their own company and like tranquility. It is impossible to not leave this place completely relaxed and ready to face the world again...My only complaint was that I had to leave! I'll definitely be back.
