Welcome to Villa Juanita, Jamaica!
Perched atop the cool hills of Jamaica’s gorgeous northeast coast, Villa Juanita is a stunning 19-bedroom property in the quaint parish of Portland. Picture rising to the breathtaking scene of an island sunrise - sipping tea on your balcony as you watch sun-dappled waves seemingly crash against the rocks in slow motion. Imagine gazing up at a pure azure sky, caressed by the gentle tropical breeze, as you walk toward a soothing session under a cool natural spring.
Boasting fresh contemporary interior designs, unforgettable panoramic views of blue Caribbean Sea waters, access to our very own onsite natural spring, and fresh seasonal foods from our small organic farm, we invite you to join us in the tropical getaway of your dreams.
The Villa Juanita Experience
Portland is a mecca of natural attractions and a cornucopia of local culture nestled in a relaxed coastal setting. When you’re ready to recess from the sights and shopping, ease into Villa Juanita’s tastefully designed first and second floor suites with their multiple private bedrooms, living rooms, and stunning Sea views from the outdoor wrap-around patio areas.
Dine in from our extensive organic menu, or whip up a meal of your own in the spacious fully-equipped private kitchen and dining room – all while soaking in the calming northeast coast. Enjoy the mix of authentic Jamaican culture tossed with a splash of modern Caribbean style.
Our six single bedrooms with attached bathrooms and outdoor balcony area – all including scenic Caribbean Sea views - are also perfect for small families, relaxed couples’ getaways, and tranquil retreats.
Portland's shoreline features some of the world’s most stunning beaches, waterfalls, caves, and rain forests. Villa Juanita is only a few minutes away from the Reach Falls ecological sanctuary – home to 23 species of ferns, and a variety of tropical birds, including black- and yellow-billed parrots. Climb, swim or just relax beneath one of the many cascading waterfalls, or hop a guided Driver’s River upstream tour to experience the underwater caverns.
Our family owned and operated villa is also an hour’s drive from the historic capital of Port Antonio offering scuba and snorkeling, tropical birding, and day tours of local farms highlighting native fruiting trees and the medicinal flora and fauna. The larger resort towns of Montego Bay and Ocho Rios on the north side of the Island are only a daytrip away.
Sights and Attractions
A mere thirty minute drive away through Holland Bay to Morant Point you can ascend to the balcony of a historic lighthouse which is still steadfastly surviving almost 200 years of gale-force winds and high seas. From the bridge you will experience uninterrupted views of Jamaica’s eastern coastline, including the varied greenery of the cane sugar and banana plantations and the stunning shadows of the Blue Mountain range, where heaven and earth meet and reflect.
Villa Juanita is nearby to a treasure trove of attractions including unblemished natural beauty, historical buildings, and cultural heritage sites.
