Mandeville and the South Coast

Accommodations

The popularity of Treasure Beach as an off-the-beaten-track destination has led to a blossoming in the accommodations market. Most of the guesthouses are remarkably affordable when compared with other tourist areas, with comfortable accommodations for two starting around US$30 per night. Even villas rent for considerably less than in other areas of Jamaica, with rates starting at around US$1,200/2,600 (low/high season) per week for 2-8 people.

The only time of year it becomes hard to find a room is during Calabash Literary Festival (late May), when those who haven't booked well in advance happily settle for whatever's available, even staying in Black River, Junction, or as far away as Mandeville if necessary.

Bliss by the Sea

Located on one of the most pristine beaches in Treasure Beach, Jamaica, this art deco home built in the 1950s, offers breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea and the Great Pedro Bluff. The bumpy track leading to the villa may at first appear to be somewhat rustic but it ensures peace and privacy as well as adding to the quiet charm.
