The villa is outside of the touristy areas but just a short drive to tons of activities. To list a few favorites:
1. 5 minutes to our Beach Club Seawinds (water sports of all types can be arranged there, snorkeling, sailing, water-skiing, wave-runners)
2.15 minutes up the road is a very fun Zip-line Tour
3. 20 minutes to to Hip Strip for Nightlife and shopping
4 1.5 hrs to fabulous Negril (7 miles of white sand beach and cliff-diving)
5. Golf at a number of world class courses all within a 30 minute drive
6. Horseback riding
7. Amazing waterfalls to be explored
there is just so much to do in Jamaica the list could go on forever...
Getting around
Hire a van and driver from Ken Smythe. They can take you anywhere you want to go. He has good vehicles and safe, friendly drivers.

How to get there
We are about 30 minutes from the Sangster International Airport. To reach our villa you take Longhill Rd, as if you were headed to Treasure Beach. Our villa is not easy to find. I suggest using Ken Smythe to arrange for a driver, they know how to get to us.
