My wife surprised me with a trip to Jamaica for our wedding anniversary, and since I'm usually the "travel agent" in the family, I must admit I was a little concerned about where we might be staying. I am delighted to share that this property is - in a word - PERFECT. The location on the cliff overlooking the ocean, the ability to walk down a few steps (through the "grotto," no less) and across...

When my wife and I arrived at the Seaside Cottage we were immediatley in awe of its beauty. We were greeted right away (everyone on the property was very helpful) and given a tour of our gorgeous cottage which is filled with cool and unique art pieces. The description and pictures of the cottage and amenities on this site is very accurate but seeing this place in person blew us away with its beauty. The...

Stayed for four nights. Snorkle gear, kayaks, Ipod doc, TV w/cable, well stocked kitchen and walking distance in to Ochi. Bed comfortable with a mosquito net that was pretty but not needed. The need to access the bedroom by going outside was not a problem, just different. Thankful for upstairs bathroom. Downstairs shower is outside. No need to travel far for snorkling, it's right there. A very nice kitty hangs around the place and shows...

We have stayed in a number of vacation rentals, and this is as good as it gets. Many extra touches from Peter and Annabella, from directing us to our parking place on arrival to a detailed walk-through of the cottage to a mid-week change of linens to drinks with our hosts on our final night and a nice departing gift. But none of that would make that much of a difference if the cottage wasn't...

My husband, daughter, and I stayed at the Garden Cottage for 3 nights about a year ago. Although the weather was cloudy at times, we adored the view, with the trees and the ocean directly across from the deck. We also loved the friendly resident dogs in the yard! The cottage has a full kitchen, comfortable beachy furniture, a bedroom, sitting area, bathroom, and pleasant deck. Great Jamaican art on the walls. We enjoyed the...

How to get there
Airport: Montego Bay: 55.3 mi
Turn left at the roundabout outside the airport and follow the main road to Ocho Rios (c. 55 miles/88 km). Approaching Ocho Rios, bear right at the fork by Island Village, which leads to the by-pass road. At the top of the hill, take the turning to the left, past one of the ubiquitous craft markets, down the hill to a T-junction - this is the old Main Street - opposite Pineapple Place. Turn right. At the end of Pineapple Place, after a car park, you will see a single-storey building “the St. Ann Chamber of Commerce”. IMMEDIATELY after the St. Ann Chamber of Commerce, there is a driveway with a sign for Hermosa Cove, we are the third house on the right.
