I stayed at Turtles' Nest Villa recently after Lucy kindly supported our charity Likkle Swimmers. My parents and their four friends flew out to stay with us and we had the most incredible time. My three year old Jamaican god daughter also stayed with us a couple of nights.
Dacia, Petagaye and Zebedee are so friendly and helped us with anything we needed. They cooked two amazing meals for us as well whilst we were there, which I highly recommend! We used both the villa and the little cottage and were very happy with both. The bedroom decor is beautiful, the bathrooms are gorgeous and there is lots of space in the rooms.
The outside space in this villa is just incredible and watching the sunset from the deck at the end was a definite highlight! It was also very enjoyable to take an early morning stroll along the beach at the end of the garden, where the two dogs Sugar and Spice quite often joined us!
We can't thank Lucy enough for helping us with this opportunity and will definitely be coming back! What an incredible place it is, and hope everyone else enjoys it as much as we did.

I stayed for a family vacation and we loved everything!!! I visit Treasure Beach regularly, and would definitely stay here again. It is right around the corner from my favourite swimming cove on the south coast. It's got a great little pool, beautiful views, and a gorgeous yard - love the cactus plants on the south coast!
Do yourself a favour and book a stay here. The place is awesome, but the staff make it even better. Can't wait to come back.

"Great place, perfect location by the sea...lovely walk round to Great Bay. Friendly staff, would recommend."
Keith H | Kent, UK | May 2022
"This is a great place to relax and unwind! I definitely recommend visiting here for a moment of peace. Or perhaps a celebration getaway with a group of friends. The stay was wonderful and Dacia and Zeb were awesome.
Admittedly mine more so than my counterparts because I had the best room in the house (downstairs)!"
Melissa P | Airbnb review | March 2022
The staff here were lovely and so close to so many great excursions! Nice to be taken care of and have our own little quiet paradise!
Lisa W | March 2022
My family's visit to Turtles' Nest Villa felt like I was at home with long lost relatives. Given my experience pre-arrival, I knew my family and I were going to have an exceptional, professional and friendly stay. From the moment of meeting Dacia, Peta-Gaye and Zeb, they made us all feel so welcome. They went out of their way to ensure everybody was enjoying themselves
Our group ranged from age seven to 80. It was such a relief to see the effort and energy that the staff put in to make sure everybody was taken care of especially giving extra attention to the “old folks”. The villa is well maintained, very comfortable, decorated nicely and has the perfect layout. The views with the beach on one side and the mountains on the other makes the location perfect. AC and hot water were plentiful, beds were comfortable, kitchen was well stocked, pool very clean and the living room was comfortable.
Dacia and Peta-Gaye were excellent cooks. The best decision we made for the week was telling them to just cook whatever they felt like cooking. They came up with a menu for the week and while I had every intention of grocery shopping, they graciously went on our behalf. The only downside to their good cooking was that we never had leftovers.
We loved our visit so much that we have already booked a return visit.
Joan R | Maryland USA | February 2022
Our stay has been wonderful. The property is amazing and staying here has really given us a chance to decompress.
Matieu M | Montreal | Canada | January 2022
We had a lovely week - very restful which is what we needed. We felt covid safe due to the remoteness
and OK to just chill and not do much given the situation of our world. Zeb was truly helpful - checking on us and advising as needed. He was warm and fun and really just wonderful! He gets an A+ rating from us! We loved the deck by the ocean! We swam a ton and read and rested. The highlights for us were Sugar and Spice! We loved having them around and they accompanied us on long walks daily. They are awesome!
Allison G | California | USA | December 2021
Love the place and the staff are amazing. My daughter and I loved this place. We loved the beach, pool and outdoor space. The house is tastefully decorated and clean. Zeb and the ladies took such good care of us. We will definitely be back, again!
Serena G | Airbnb | November 2021
Beautiful place really close to great restaurants and an incredible private cove - really appreciate all of Zeb's help.
Tesean C | Airbnb | November 2021 |
Thank you to the Turtles' Nest team for making our stay amazing, we really enjoyed our time spent over the last few days. The rooms where in great condition, the property was perfectly decorated and the food was fantastic. This beach front villa is definitely worth the visit!
Sasha A | October 2021 |
This villa was amazing for our girls trip last weekend. Though the property is beautiful and well maintained it was the staff that made the stay exceptional! Thanks to Zeb, Dacia and Petagaye who are true assets to this villa! Would definitely return and recommend.
Ceecee | Tripadvisor review |
Absolutely amazing! Please do yourself a favour and book it right now! Lucy’s villa is exactly what my friends and I were looking for! Privacy, luxury, breathtaking views, amazing food, warm staff…you name it! This property is easily one of, if not the best, in Treasure Beach. Beautifully landscaped garden and well maintained house and surrounding areas.
Open living allows adequate sunlight and breeze to easily pass through. Rooms and bathrooms are very spacious and comfortable. Dacia (chef) is really gifted. She will exceed your expectations in the kitchen! Zeb (caretaker) was very accommodating and always checked in to make sure we were good without impeding on our privacy. I highly recommend spending the extra money (vs hotel) for this villa! Worth every penny!
Dwain H | Airbnb | October 2021
My guests and I truly enjoyed this trip and stay at Turtles' Nest Villa! From the views, to the service, all the way to the sweet and precious dogs! The chefs and caretaker made us feel welcome and were very attentive to our needs and questions as first time travellers to this beautiful island.
The driver, Richard, was amazing and thoughtful regardless of how far we had him drive and the locals on the beach were just as friendly. We will definitely be coming back!!! Five days was not enough lol!

"Capture Your Heart"
My family and I usually visit all inclusive hotels for our vacations, as such we wanted a change this time around. Therefore, we looked around and found Turtle’s Nest Villa. Firstly, even though the pictures are nice, the villa is so much more beautiful in person.
Secondly, I have visited quite a few hotels in Jamaica, however the food prepared by Peta-Gaye and her mother is so much better than anything you will have there (just prepare a menu outlining what you’d like to eat, and bring your own groceries, as Treasure Beach does not have any large supermarkets. If you do ask them to purchase your groceries be aware that you may be charged a service fee for that). Thirdly, you will not want to leave, as the sounds of waves crashing against the waves enveloped you at night, the pets Sugar, Spice, and Stray captured your heart.
Leanne G | September 2021
Turtles' Nest was nothing short of amazing. Zeb and Dacia followed all COVID19 protocols and we were truly inspired by the breathtaking view of the Caribbean Sea. Loved the saltwater pool and every need was catered to by the friendly staff. I loved the LA aesthetic.
Kesi G | August 2021
Great location, amazing chef, and just pure relaxation! Will definitely be back. You have such a wonderful villa! My friends and I immensely enjoyed our time there and are already planning our next visit back. Thank you!
Shamara J | July 2021
This is a beautifully designed house in a great location, offering excellent amenities and well looked after by the attentive team of caretakers. Would fully recommend as a place to stay, far away from noise and crowds, with direct access to the wild south coast of Jamaica.
Michael L | July 2021
This villa exceeded our expectations. The Turtles' Nest team (Zeb, Dacia, Petagaye) were excellent! Zeb went above and beyond for us! Dacia and Petagaye’s cooking will definitely leave you wanting more! My friends and I had the most amazing time and we will definitely return!
Rochelle G | July 2021
Wonderful stay! It is so peaceful and relaxing and the location is perfect! The villa is well appointed, the staff are friendly and diligent in their work and the dogs (Sugar and Spice) are a wonderful bonus.
Jodie M | July 2021
It was like paradise. The staff were excellent and attentive to our all our needs. We bonded with everyone including security who came every night.
Expedia review | 5* | July 2o21
This was a beautiful stay, the staff were great and also very responsive every time I needed something or had a question.
Abeshy G | July 2021
Located in the bread basket parish of St. Elizabeth, captured my heart and soul. The beautiful, quaint and untouched fishing village on the south coast of Jamaica is truly a hidden gem. With the intention of spending a few days in paradise, I pulled up to Turtles’ Nest Villa - a private, beachfront vacation home with incredible mountain and ocean views.
Pure Jamaica review | Top Five Villas in Jamaica | June 2021
Omg this villa is amazing and CLEAN! Dacia is a wonderful chef, she prepared my favourite Jamaican dishes to perfection. Look no further if you’re looking for LUXURY and PRIVACY :)
Ranneka M | June 2021
It was like paradise. The staff were excellent and attentive to our all our needs. We bonded with everyone, including security who came every night.
Linda M | June 2o21
Quite honestly, this was the best Airbnb experience I have ever had. Firstly, the place is gorgeous and secluded. Lucy’s staff is incredible and hospitable. The manager Zeb, is friendly and so very accommodating.
The staff: Dacia and Peta-Gaye were hilarious, punctual and did an amazing job hosting a party of seven people.
The place is exactly as advertised. The property also comes with two wonderful dogs named Sugar and Spice who greeted you every morning outside and went swimming with all of us as well as kept us safe- like personal body guards. Also, security was always present at night and felt extremely safe. I recommend this villa to anyone even thinking about spending anytime at Treasure Beach- worth every penny. You’re welcome in advance.
Shimmy B | June 2021
Travelling in St. Elizabeth, Treasure beach is a must. A beautiful, calm piece of coast line with everything from bohemian huts to luxurious villas.
We visited Turtles’ Nest and the staffed villa did not disappoint. Beautiful villa on the beach front with comfortable rooms, spacious living room, kitchen, balcony and outside area surrounding a fresh saltwater pool.
The villa’s caretaker and chef made sure we had everything we needed, felt safe and comfortable with amazingly cooked meals. We did not want to leave! Thank you Turtles’ Nest we will be back soon!
Streets of Jamaica review | June 2021
My second time and I’m already thinking of making it a third! Went with friends and thinking of taking my family as it’s perfect for ANY group. Respectful staff and they respect privacy. For the rate I felt like I didn’t deserve everything we were accommodated with!
5* TripAdvisor review | June 2021
Nice getaway. This is a lovely property especially for those who value privacy. Lovely layout, with the pool and the beach to relax at. The beach is great and the caretaker is very cool!

"Staff Are Incredible"
Incredible staff, upful energy, great service and a peaceful place! Definitely forwarding, back soon! Give thanks. The place is warm and welcoming!
Blessings. Much love.
Jesse Royal | May 2021 |
Thank you so much, from myself and on behalf of the Lion Pride team. It was such a lovely experience to stay at the villa and the property is truly amazing. From the staff to the rooms and the dogs were just heart-warming. I would love to go back!
The stay was very comfortable and trust me if you want that get away from the city life with some peace, food and water, Turtles’ Nest Villa is the vibe. The house feels very open and homely, which I liked, it felt like I was in my house by the seaside. Highly recommend to visit.
Nickii K | Lion Pride Jamaica | April 2021 |
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed Turtles' Nest and we thank you for your hospitality. Everything was absolutely perfect in large part to Zeb, Peta-Gaye, Dacia, and Sherna.
We’re sure going to miss our girls Sugar and Spice! We look forward to our next visit.
Zeb is the best and helped immensely! We will definitely be back to Turtles' Nest!
The Richards family | April 2021 |
We had an amazing time at Turtles' Nest. The accommodation was great, your staff was amazing and the location is a hidden gem. We’re already figuring out what next year will be like for us there. Zeb was very courteous and understanding of our needs, immensely accommodating and very reliable.
Dacia was also amazing, she is a treasure for anyone to have on staff. Her cooking is top notch, and also beyond accommodating. Thank you so much for your flexibility with my booking, and thanks for having such an amazing space there. I’m now considering getting some property out there myself!
Brian M | March 2021 |
"Best of Jamaica"
My wife and our three kids stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. This villa is located on the south coast of Jamaica which is much quieter than the north coast. It's a wonderful location with an entrance to the beach right from the property. We went for a long walk along the coastline every morning and after dinner, every day to watch the sunset.
The villa comes with staff who will cook for you, we sent our menu request ahead via WhatsApp and when we arrived the fridge was already stocked and dinner was being prepared. The villa itself is tastefully decorated and laid out. It has a wonderful mezzanine on the 2nd floor with a great view of the ocean. We rented a car from MBJ airport and drove to it ourselves. We enjoyed the scenery along the way and used Google Maps with no problem. We are already planning a return trip next year.
Sherwin D | February 2021 |
Lovers' weekend at Turtles' Nest hanging with the voice of the sea and the rising of the sun, and the whistling of the wind that brought peace. Good Day World!
Thank you so much for your hospitality and kindness. We had a fabulous time at Turtles' Next Villa. I shot some video
to include in my Grammy's footage!
Maxi Priest | February 2021 |
Great service! Great spot! Can't wait to visit again! Would definitely recommend!
I stayed here for a few nights with a group of friends. It was a great experience. The staff were courteous and kind. The villa is spacious and welcoming. We were able to do some grilling and to enjoy the pool. There is easy access to the sea. The views are unmatched. I'm looking forward to my next stay.
Monique G | January 2021 |
The perfect place, just what we needed. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with the warm hospitality of Zeb and Dacia. They made our first night very comfortable and helped us get settled in. Thanks to Lucy for her thoughtfulness and understanding as she assisted us with our booking.
We felt very much at home at Turtles' Nest Villa with the beauty and tranquility of the space. Loved the rooms and facilities. Pool time was enjoyed by everyone including the kids. We will definitely be back and recommend this place to our friends.
Zuri G | February 2021 |
Treasure Beach is definitely a hidden gem in our little island and I truly hope it stays that way. Turtles Nest was the best decision we have made to start 2021. This villa was BEAUTIFUL, not just the amazing villa, but the location, being right on the beach front in just a few steps.
The view and the sound of the ocean were just enough.
The caretaker Zeb and the cook Dacia were wonderful, friendly people. Zeb ensured we were comfortable and shared tidbits about the history of Treasure Beach, he went out of his way to find me a favourite fruit I had encountered on the trip there and ensured I had plenty of it to go back home with. A truly amazing experience and we cannot wait to go back!
Neikisha C | January 2021

Definitely a 10/10. If you’re considering to go here, you should.
Sydney B | January 2021
No words to describe just how amazing, how comfortable, how truly welcoming this amazing place is. Absolutely number one on my most favourite places to stay. (Planning a wedding soon, I think this could be the place!!!)
Tammy B | January 2021
"Perfect Beach Villa!"
Turtles Nest Villa truly an amazing experience! I couldn’t ask for more from our host, and on site helper! The villa is breathtakingly, jaw dropping! I felt at home but was still in awe of how beautiful the decor and scenery was! I felt so safe with the two dogs that followed me around and even played with me at the beach!
10/10 would definitely recommend you stay here!
Bicana B | December 2020 |
Beautiful villa located on the coast of St.Elizabeth. Definitely worth a visit, the place was very clean and the host was very hospitable. Had such a lovely stay, will be back soon!
Sasha A | December 2020 |
I had a fantastic weekend with my family. We felt so safe, un-impacted by the pandemic. All safety procedures were in place. The modern style villa catered to all our needs. Lovely rooms and bathrooms. The kitchen made us feel right at home. Jerk chicken prepared on the grill and eaten on the deck along the beach is a once in a lifetime experience. The kids just wouldn't leave the pool, lol. Zeb and the resident pets Sugar and Spice were so hospitable. Five star experience!
Island Girl | Tripadvisor | November 2020
Fabulous! Turtles Nest was a wonderful, secluded slice of heaven... we were very comfortable. Zeb and Dacia add the cherry on top - chatty, informative and respectful. So glad we finally made it out to this treasure.
Erika W | November 2020 |
My visit over the past weekend with my friends would not have been as great had it not been for this great villa and their awesome staff. We were a pretty diverse group and was never made to feel uncomfortable. We were greeted warmly and welcomed by the caretaker and given a tour of the places and told what was available to us.
Not to mention the chefs Dacia and Peta-Gaye... the food was to die for. Taste, presentation and the table setting was awesome. I'd recommend this place to anyone for them to feel at home away from home.
Rhasaun H | October 2020 |
We had the pleasure of staying at this villa for my wife's birthday weekend, and we were definitely impressed with everything. Form initial contact with the owner Lucy, I knew that this was the correct choice. She gave us the contact information ahead of time for the chef and manager, and we were able to send down our menu ahead of time. was available to us.
We wanted to have lobster for dinner on Saturday and Zeb pulled it off without any hitches. I have to send a personal shout out to the great staff there, Zed, Dacia and, Peta-Gaye were excellent, friendly and thorough. The location itself was the real beauty of the weekend. Right on the beach this villa and its views are amazing. The swimming pool is salted but not too salty, and our resident family, the dogs Sugar and Spice, were almost to friendly. I would definitely be returning.
Brian S | October 2020 |
From the very first time I came across photos of this beauty, I could not stop thinking about it. Since having had the pleasure of vacationing at this property in August with my family, it has been the highlight of our year so far. The support staff are very accommodating, helpful and they prepared delicious meals for us day after day.
The ambiance of the location sets the pace for nothing but relaxation. I remember waking up every morning and just feeling extremely blessed to be having such an awesome experience. This vacation home has everything you could ever need to rejuvenate and create special memories with your loved ones.
My kids absolutely loved it and my youngest commented "Mommy this should be our spot". The environment and house was clean and well kept. The experience lived up to everything I had anticipated and more. I have recommended to several persons since and will definitely stay again.
Kellyann G | October 2020 |
I did not want to leave this villa. I spent three days and two nights and man, I wish I had stayed a month. From the initial communication with Lucy, the owner, I was impressed. She's quite quick with email responses and provides clarity on all questions asked. She definitely makes sure you are well prepared for your stay. Dacia, our chef whose cooking skills are beyond amazing was the sweetest and most down to earth soul. We immediately clicked with her
From the initial communication discussing grocery items ... she was an immense help. Now how do I go back to regular life after waking up to Dacia's delicious breakfast and coming home to her finger licking dinners?! Zeb, the caretaker was so friendly and greeted us with the warmest smile. I immediately felt relaxed and in good hands as soon as I saw his smile. He immediately showed us around the house and told us all the hot spots in Treasure Beach to visit. The villa's incredible! I was obsessed with the tropical-beach themed decor and stuffed sea animals in each room. The beds were soft, plush and comfortable. Views of either the mountain or pool and ocean met your eyes from each room. One of my fav parts of the villa was the sun terrace where you have your own private access directly to the beach. It's so secluded that you literally have the beach to yourself. I did not see a single soul around. I would absolutely stay here again and I highly recommend it!!!
Lisa S | September 2020 |
This villa is awesome! The rooms are spacious. The property is kept clean and well maintained. It’s directly ON the beach and the staff are accommodating and very pleasant and friendly. My friends and I went with our older kids and all have us had an incredible time. We have recommended others and will definitely be returning.
Dacia, Peta Gaye and Zeb added the personal touches to make it extra special.
Keira B | September 2020
My stay at Turtles' Nest Villa was absolutely fabulous. The staff were friendly. The place was clean and well kept. The dogs were super playful and the POOL absolutely wonderful! The beach view was spectacular and we had it all to ourselves. My boyfriend and I and friends spent one of the most memorable vacations there and I’ll definitely be back again!
Alyssia Tang | August 2020
Lucy has a lovely home. The caretaker Zeb is amazing and really helpful. I'll definitely be staying again.
Christopher C | August 2020 |
Was just what the doctor ordered. Thank you for having us! Your staff made an exceptional property into a stupendous one! Worth the drive and and even getting lost turned out to be a great adventure. The staff were what sold it for me.
Hudson A | Kingston | September 2020 |
Oh my goodness!! We had an amazing time! You are so blessed to own that beautiful slice of paradise! Dacia, Peta Gaye and Zeb were incredible!
So warm and welcoming... what an awesome chef Dacia is.
Her curried goat was the best I ever had and I cook a pretty mean curry!
Thank you for sharing your home with us and trusting we would take care of everything, we will most certainly be back if you will have us and I have already referred the villa to two families so far. Sugar and Spice.....will miss them so much.....they greeted me every morning!
Mitzie T | August 2020 |
I fell in love with the design, small details and the team caring for this house. It was a magical coincidence that the day available for booking coincide with Tao’s birthday. Now we will never forget this trip. The walk into the breathtaking sunset of Treasure Beach, the water always warm, the breeze always refreshing and the sky oranges unforgettable.
I was mesmerised by the sand dune. I absolutely love them. There is nothing like waking up to salty breeze on my face, sand in my toes and the sound of crashing waves. Cool ocean waters of Treasure Beach I will miss you, I will miss taking the stairs of Turtles Nest descending to the beach where life is always better.
Yhordanka A | August 2020 |
Turtles' Nest villa should be your next staycation destination.
The villa’s interiors exude tropical chic. The combinations of high ceilings and fold-away glass doors make the indoors feel like an extension of the outdoors. The interior colour scheme of white, blue and turquoise picks up the hues of the shore from outside.
Enjoy the features of a hotel, but the privacy and intimacy of your own villa.
SueTanya M | August 2020 |
The villa has a spacious yet minimalist decor, with a comfy luxury vibe. Turtles’ Nest is a three bedroom villa that opens up to a saltwater pool and a thatched roof gazebo that leads you straight to the Caribbean Sea. I enjoyed taking my morning tea to the deck while listening to the waves and breathing in the fresh sea breeze.
Turtles' Nest Villa does well to play up its gorgeous view. From every room, you’re granted an enticing view of the south coast beach and saltwater pool. The ground floor of the villa has a bamboo beachy living room, spacious kitchen and dining area, a cool terrace, and a bedroom that opens up to the pool.
Upstairs houses the other two bedrooms, separated by a breezy bamboo thatched roof balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The balcony is brightly adorned, has ample breeze and the sound of rolling waves in the background brings immediate relaxation.
Diedre M | Kingston | August 2020 |
Awesome villa, very clean, beautiful location, friendly and efficient staff. LOVE LOVE love, will definitely be back. We had a fabulous time, the place was immaculately clean and the staff very efficient and courteous. We loved the resident dogs Sugar and Spice and definitely will be back. Beautiful location.
Sophia M | Ochio Rios | July 2020
Amazing getaway/home away from home. Amazing staff and a breathtaking view. Very homely and clean, amenities are well kept and makes you just want to return over and over again - just like me and my family!
Ramone G | July 2020 |
I recommend this to anyone thinking about it! One of the best places I have been to in Jamaica. Right on the beach! Amazing hospitality! The caretaker and chef will absolutely take care of you. I had an amazing time. And communication was perfect!
Everything was amazing. Zeb and Dacia were absolutely a dream! You made my 21st so memorable and I loved it!
Misti H | Tampa | Florida | July 2020
Wonderful place to go. Front of the beach with a beautiful deck to appreciate it. Nice pool, rooms really comfortable to get nice quiet rest. Perfect place for this covid time as beach is almost just for you and of course after covid....definitely recommended.
The house is really great, location, rooms, pool, deck in front of sea. Really wonderful. We really enjoyed. Zeb was there cleaning the pool everyday and being supportive. There is a place around the corner great to go to the sea as an option. We really enjoyed and definitely would comeback if we have the chance.
Alejandro S | Kingston | Jamaica | July 202o
This is one of the most magnificent places I’ve stayed that I booked on Airbnb. Lucy’s place is nothing short of perfect!! It’s your home away from home along with all the personal touches and amenities that you would have at home, but situated on your own private beach!!
Our stay at Turtles' Nest Villa was special because we had a great host in Lucy who made sure that we had all the things that we needed. She was available to answer any question we had and the caretaker Zeb made us feel very welcome!! If you’re an animal lover or not it will be difficult not to fall in love with her two dogs... Sugar and Spice! They are the sweetest two dogs you would ever meet!! I would highly recommend Lucy’s place to anyone or a group who wants a very high end luxury retreat with all the comfort you can imagine.
Orville M | Kingston | Jamaica | June 202o
Before we’d arrived Lucy kept us informed and sent us details for the caretaker and cook. Our family are from the area so we are familiar with the location but it is straightforward to find. Once we’d arrived the caretaker Zeb was extremely helpful and available all the time whenever we needed anything. The property is immaculate inside and out.
The living areas were great, we spent most of our time at the villa around the pool. The three bedrooms were all good sizes and the bathrooms were well presented. Not a bad word to say. The cleaners came in mid week and were great. We had two people stay in the cottage for some of the time and this was accommodated for and managed with no fuss. It is a beautiful property perfectly located and well equipped so that we could relax there if we wanted to but also close enough to the things to do/places to eat in Treasure Beach. Eight of us stayed throughout the week and all of us would definitely stay again.
Joe T | Vermont | March 2020
We stayed for 10 days at Turtles' Nest in March 2020. We have been travelling to Treasure Beach for more than 10 years now and have stayed in various villas in Great Bay, Old Wharf, Calabash Bay and Billy’s Bay. Turtles' Nest immediately became a favourite for us. All of the people working at Turtles' Nest are wonderful and definitely go the extra mile to make your stay relaxing and stress free!!
The food cooked by Dacia was absolutely delicious and she made sure our special requests were granted… imagine: we had callaloo every single day!! Zeb was also always available for all our requests and on site needs. He found nice big lobsters for us and opened Jodi’s coconuts daily. Their smiles, laughter and good humour are contagious - if it’s a word one can use nowadays? Our kids were asking for them when we left.
The beach right in front is very quiet and beautiful with amazing views of sunsets and sun rises. It’s a five minute walk to the best swimming beach in the area. 15 minutes walk to Great Bay via a beautiful beach side trail. And a 15 minutes walk to town.
Nelson P | Colombia | March 2020
"Five Star Villa"
I recently stayed at this villa with a group of friends and had an amazing time! The owner of the villa - Lucy - was great at communicating about the villa. Every time I emailed her she responded within a few hours. The staff at the villa were equally as great. Dacia - the housekeeper - cooked amazing meals for us and went grocery shopping for everything so we really didn't have to plan or execute much.
Zeb who is the House Manager was exceptional. He was great with communicating and was extremely friendly and hospitable. He put us in touch with a local - Damian - who arranged a bicycle tour for us and boat ride out to Pelican Bar which was so much fun! Everything was extremely easy and very convenient and the staff were great. I would definitely recommend this villa!
Kimberley T | Kingston | Jamaica | February 2020
Have stayed a number of times with family and friends. Really love the new additions in particular the beautiful gazebo and large deck that has been added close to the sea. Beautiful spot to enjoy the lovely sea breeze and the amazing sunsets. Dacia continues to do a great job and can prepare any style of breakfast or dinner and she keeps the kitchen spotless.
The relatively large swimming pool is always very inviting after a hot walk along the beach. Will continue to return and recommend it to our friends both Jamaican and overseas.
Bernie C | Canada | February 2020
Beautiful 360 degree landscapes compliment your immaculately designed villa. Blown away! Stunning food and Dacia, who cooked us breakfast and dinner kept our menu varied, delicious and fresh. Private access to the beach via your sun terrace was another highlight for us, Zeb the Villa Manager told us all about the turtles as we explored the rock pools.
St Elizabeth offers tranquility and natural living... WE LOVED IT! Thank you all.
Lydia Heywood | Gloucestershire | England | January 2020 | @lydiaheywood
The staff were amazing... lots of fun, always accessible throughout the night. Zeb was the real boss, love him. Dacia and PetaGaye were very friendly and jovial and always willing to help. Any issues we had were sorted immediately after voicing. The ladies cook very well and do not impose on the guests at all, you don't really notice that they are there. Even the dogs were awesome.
Anuscha-Mai | Kingston | Jamaica | November 2019
I awoke at 6am and wandered downstairs to take in the full view of the newly built gazebo, beach and sea. I opened up the patio doors to the sound of the sea and a cool sea breeze, this is straight out of a film I thought, it reminded me of big budget movies of people living in Malibu Beach or Miami. Don Johnson I am not but did I feel special, yes I did and that is how the whole of our two weeks made us feel, special.
I made a coffee and went to take up my place on a seat under the gazebo, watching the sea thinking 'is this real'. I knew from the website and photos that the villa looked stunning but nothing prepared me or my family for this amazing and breathtaking view. I was interrupted by my son and we went for a paddle in the sea, this was repeated everyday of our holiday.
Dacia arrived and proceeded to make us pancakes, crispy bacon with maple syrup and poached eggs this and her amazing omelette with callaloo and spices kept us full every day until dinner and dinner was a whole different taste extravaganza. We wanted to taste as much local food as we could so left it up to Dacia who prepared us dishes including; Jerk Chicken, Jerk Lobster, Shrimp in Garlic Sauce, Curried Goat, Steak cooked in a pot with local sauce (really good), ackee and saltfish and other dishes I can't recall.
As well as this Zeb sorts out any trips but we loved the local community so much we only ventured out to the Black River and Pelican Bar, seeing dolphins, crocodiles alongside the boat before mooring up at the Pelican Bar for a beer and swim. Thanks to our Captain Mr Bernard a.k.a Mr Nice Guy.
Must visits are Frenchman's, Jakes, Jack Sprats and Lashings where the hospitality is great, relaxed atmosphere with great food and drinks sensibly priced. I watched the Rugby World Cup final in Lashings Tree Top Bar at 4am, the result was awful but the environment helped me get over the loss.
We also loved having the dogs around as it made the whole place feel homely, Sugar, Spice and Dobby became part of the family for two weeks So will we go back, absolutely, would I recommend this villa, absolutely. It isn't just the villa it is the whole community feel and it is safe.

I stayed at Turtles Nest for one week, and hands down it was one of the best weeks of my life.
I enjoyed every minute, the villa itself is stunning, such luxury and attention to detail, I loved the various ornaments and pictures in each room.
The surroundings are breathtaking, waking up every morning to the fantastic sea view was just mesmerising.
The staff are amazing people, who cater for your every need, full of knowledge and advice on local trips or where to eat, not that you need to eat out as the Villa chef is just the best cook she will create you the most mouthwatering of meals, her lobster curry is a must try.
I can honestly say you will not be disappointed if you stay here - I am working out how quickly I could go back, I feel like I wouldn’t need to go anywhere else now having been here. Treasure Beach will take a piece of your heart, everyone is so friendly, the vibe so chilled and you get to stay in the most amazing villa.
Who could ask for more?! Thank you.

"Felt like a home away from home"
Turtles' Nest Villa was nothing short of amazing, we rented for three weekends August. The staff were on point, the meals were great and they were helpful in every way. The villa was decked will all the amenities one would need very comfortable. Two families and their children enjoyed the pool.
Everything was great about the place. We even used the barbecue one night. Actually saw sea turtles and their eggs for the first time. Thanks for allowing us in your villa we will be back next year for another three weekends. Thanks to Zeb, and Dacia and the ladies.

“A Gem on Treasure Beach”
A relaxing, scenic getaway in a small, quiet community. The staff are very personable, making you feel at home instead of on vacation. The complimentary cooking services will give you a filling and tasty spread, and the sophisticated yet playful decor makes the accommodation nothing short of cosy!
If you're there between June and November, I highly recommend asking to be connected with the area's turtle group to witness their very important sea turtle preservation efforts and, if you're lucky, some turtle sightings on the beach!

This was such a beautiful and tranquil experience. Enjoyed everything including the wonderful staff. You can book with confidence anytime you plan to visit Treasure Beach Jamaica.

“We loved everything about this villa!”
Treasure Beach, with its "local tourism" is just the kind of vacation we wanted! I researched ALL the villas in the area and could not be any happier with our choice to stay at Turtles' Nest Villa. We loved everything about it. Spacious and clean. Hip and Cool. Perfectly styled with Jamaican artwork and textiles that are available at a local shop.
The shaded upper deck was my favorite spot for an afternoon nap. There are fantastic views of the ocean from every room. Be sure to also take a walk around the garden in front of the house as it is equally breathtaking. Before we arrived Lucy, the owner, was quick to answer any of my questions. Closer to our arrival, she put me in touch with Zeb and Dacia to answer questions and make sure we had what we needed when we arrived. We had never stayed in a villa, so it was helpful to have some questions answered before we arrived. Once at the villa, we would see both of them in the morning at breakfast time and if we ate at the villa, dinner time.
While there, Dacia made us breakfast every morning and most of our dinners. I liked that meal planning did not have to be done before we arrived, but she had a meal for us after a long day of travel. During breakfast, Dacia would ask what we wanted for dinner. We asked for suggestions of what she could make and were never disappointed. Every meal was delicious! We loved trying some traditional Jamaican dishes. The food was plenty, and we ate leftovers for lunch. Dacia was sweet and understanding about my daughter, who is a picky eater. Several times she made her a blander version.
Zeb was a big help with transferring money, scheduling drivers for when we wanted to venture out, a boat captain to get to Floyd's and making sure we had everything we needed/wanted. Including aloe from a plant on the grounds for my son's sunburn. A couple of women came every three days to clean and change linens. We did not get to know them like we did Dacia and Zeb but they did a great job. Laundry is on site and they laundered a few loads of your clothing also.
I can not give all of them enough praise for making this such a wonderful vacation. Especially Dacia and Zeb. Our entire family, enjoyed talking to them and learning more about life in Jamaica. They made us feel at ease and home in this beautiful villa and charming town.
The entire week we where there, we did not see anyone else on the beach. It was like having a private beach. A few days we did not go in the ocean because of rough seas but on the calmer days our kids rode the waves on boogie boards. We love the beach, but when traveling with children it is nice to have a pool as an alternative to the ocean. We ended up spending a couple of hours a day on the beach and the majority of time at the pool. I was glad we picked a villa with a large pool. The pool's water was cool enough to cool you down during the heat of the day and warm enough to night swim.
We could not be happier with our choice of Turtles' Nest Villa. I would not change a thing and can't imagine a friendlier staff. Would definitely recommend! Would definitely return!

The villa itself is lovely, the staff are out of this world!! Love Zeb!!! Will definitely be back! Clean, spacious, lovely pool, we saw dolphins swim past and turtle tracks in the sand!
I am absolutely in love with Treasure Beach. Walked around freely, even rode a bike, but the absolute highlight was seeing happy, healthy animals everywhere. What a paradise!
Thank you Treasure Beach, this is seriously a wonderful, amazing place!! If anyone is thinking of coming down, check out Turtles Nest Villa!! Lovely!! The staff are amazing, the villa is absolutely gorgeous, thank you for making this little holiday so incredibly special. The very fact that the staff are kind and gentle with the dogs, have food for them, only makes this trip even more amazing, we are so grateful, thank you.

Stress Free Vacation Villa: We experienced a quick, efficient & helpful booking process. Friendly staff who went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful stay. This was a great Treasure Beach family villa and we are looking forward to returning in the future.

Wow, what can I say about Turtles' Nest Villa. The place itself is absolutely breathtaking. It is literally like stepping into your own private paradise!!!
If you are looking for a nearly private beach, steps from a beautiful luxury pool you are looking in the right place.
The property itself is kept impeccably clean, the rooms are spacious and beautiful!!!
The bedding is so crisp and comfortable. Anything you could possibly need you will find waiting for you. Zeb, the grounds keeper is so friendly and helpful. Every morning and multiple times a day he would come to make sure we had everything and anything we needed. The chef came each day and prepared whatever we could have desired and a few things we wouldn't even think of. She was so helpful and thoughtful and they worked together to be sure we were well taken care of.
Each night a security guard came to stand watch, he never intruded but it was comforting to know we could come and go as we pleased and our home away from home would be well guarded.
Communication with Lucy was the easiest thing ever. She always responded to messages almost immediately and always had great suggestions. The location of the villa is ideal....remote enough to feel like the only people in the world and yet just 5 min from shops and popular restaurants on treasure beach. Honestly I could not have chosen a better place for me and my bridesmaids to stay in the days leading up to my wedding.
This place is worth every penny and this pictures only show a fraction of its beauty. Do yourself the favor of experiencing top accommodations and excellent customer service on beautiful treasure beach by staying at Turtles' Nest Villa! You won't regret it!!!

"Truly wonderful stay!"
We have just spent the most magical and relaxing week at Turtles Nest. The property overlooks the beach and ocean with stunning and uninterrupted views. Every morning we woke to the gentle sound of the waves, and could walk from the property straight onto the beach for a stroll, before coming back to a prepared breakfast.
Dacia, the villa’s chef, cooked the most delicious meals from fresh, local produce and Zeb, the caretaker, was helpful, welcoming and discreet. They were both so hospitable that they really made our stay! The villa is new, very well maintained, freshly painted and had every amenity that we needed. Lucy, the owner, took great care to make sure we were happy with everything. There was plenty to do and explore in the area, from beaches, local markets to boat trips. All was included in the information pack and Dacia and Zeb made some great suggestions.
We particularly enjoyed eating out at Lashings and Jakes. If you are looking for beautiful peaceful surroundings, away from the tourist traps then this is definitely the place to come. We highly recommend it and are sure to come back.
Dominique C | London | April 2019
We had a great time at Turtles Nest. The house is beautiful and very comfortable. The A/C in the bedrooms was immensely appreciated. The kitchen is well appointed and the appliances are very nice. We also used the outdoor grill which is always something we like.
The bedrooms were very comfortable with plenty of space, closets and hangers. The beds were large and easy to relax in. Each bedroom has its own bathroom which we loved. The showers and amenities were very nice. The pool is beautiful and we used it daily. Each morning we took a walk on the beach every day. Zeb was great, checking in with us each day to make sure everything was ok and answer any questions. We used his suggestion for the ride to Pelican Bar and dinner. He has a wonderful personality.
I'd highly recommend Turtles Nest for a very relaxing vacation in Jamaica away from the all-inclusive hotels.

"Beautiful, Tranquil Turtles' Nest Villa"
My stay at Turtles' Nest Villa can simply be summed up as amazing. The property is beautifully maintained and you have access to all the basic amenities you need... I recommend taking the option with the Chef. Dacia prepared some traditional Jamaican dishes for us and I can tell the food was cooked with love. Delicious.
The caretaker Zeb is a true gem. We were warmly greated on entry and assisted with everything we needed. We decided to do a boat ride to Pelican bar and he arranged the entire trip and even accompanied us. We enjoyed our chats with Dacia and Zeb as they told us about all the attractions that Treasure Beach and its surroundings had to offer. The property has three bedrooms and comfortably sleeps six. We enjoyed lounging by the pool and soaking up the breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea. You have the property all to yourself and you don't have to worry about disturbing the neighbours. The owner Lucy, kept in touch to ensure everything was okay. You have amazing staff that know how to make your guests feel right at home. Great for a getaway with friends.

Turtles' Nest and the Treasure Beach community will always have a special place in our hearts! We had such an amazing experience and cannot wait to get back sometime soon and hopefully for years to come! Lucy takes great pride in her property and the community. She was always very quick to respond to questions and requests.
The villa itself was incredible. Simply gorgeous with an open design and beautiful yet comfortable decor and accommodations. Each bedroom has it's own full bathroom which provides ultimate privacy and convenience and comes with the most amazing views of the sea. The expansive and well thought-out kitchen is equipped with everything you may need to create a simple breakfast in the morning to a full blown meal in the evening. From the floor to ceiling patio doors in the kitchen, is a full view of the salt water pool as well as the sea. The sea is remarkable! We swam on the days where the tide wasn't too much and took in some pretty incredible sunsets each evening. You can also walk along the beach for miles checking out the local restaurants and hot spots.
What made us fall completely in love with the spot was Dacia and Zeb. These are two of the most kind and genuine people you will ever cross paths with in life. Both were always happy to help with whatever we needed to make our stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We considered them family by the time we left and feel so very blessed to have met them. Our experience at Turtles' Nest was top notch. We honestly could not have asked for a better place to spend some family time together and make some amazing memories!
Deanna S | Denver | Colorado | January 2019
Dacia, Zeb and the staff were the best. They cooked whatever our hearts could come up with. They also cleaned and kept the place up spectacular the whole visit. The pool was clean, the beach was everything! The sunrise and sunset at Turtles' Nest are second to none. We will be back often and can't wait to return already!
Chris C | January 2019
Thanks a million for every thing that you and your lovely and wonderful team did for us. We definitely will come back again and recommend it to all our friends and family.

"Didn't want to leave!"
Beautiful and serene location and very calming house to spend time in. Loved swimming in the pool, the sea or both every morning. The view of the sea and mountains from bedrooms and the general laidback feeling in the area. Lots of help and friendliness from Zeb and Dacia - plus lovely food. Didn't want to leave!

Bernie C | February 2019
I stayed at Turtles' Nest for 7 days - my stay was pre-arranged by the organisers of the retreat I was attending in town. It has everything you need for a perfect villa stay in an amazing, magical place. Zeb, the property manager was wonderful.
I enjoyed our talks in the morning and he really seemed to enjoy maintaining the lush gardens in the evening. The decor was simple and tasteful - the breezes that ran through the house when you open the doors were amazing! The beach is right there for walking and swimming and the pool awaits. Who knows what you might see looking out at the amazing views! Can't wait to return! And I will!
Julie D |Princeton, New Jersey | August 2019
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your amazing place! Zeb was wonderful, very helpful and welcoming. I love the wide open feeling to the house, the view and starting my day swimming laps in the pool. The energy of this house was definitely part of a transformative experience I've had at Treasure Beach and I will be forever grateful.
