Benitoite Shore House, aptly named, after the vivid blue crystal, is a vivacious home perched on the edge of the ocean, offering wonderful views and parkland grounds.
 
Set across a single storey, this dazzling home is infused with a lightness and quintessential Caribbean ease. With the ocean and fine, white sands of the beach at the end of the garden this home is placed within a haven of fragrant tropical bliss, with over 200 palm trees swaying in the grounds.

The living space is airy, epitomising understated glamour, blending rustic touches and raw materials characteristic of the island such as glossy mahogany and wicker, along with the classic cedar sloping ceilings. There is a natural indoor-outdoor blend, with the long veranda offering a stylish spot to sit back in the cooling trade winds and enjoy a rum cocktail as the sun softens across the ocean.

The glamorous interiors offer ample lounge space, and an understated yet luxurious dining area for lively group meals of delicious flavours, prepared by the chef, to be enjoyed at the rare tree trunk table for ten, a gorgeous chunk of local Tamarind tree. Rich with textures and a creamy palette are offset by cool travertine marble, cherry timber furnishings and cut stone, along with cutting-edge designer pieces.

This is a fabulous home for rocking pool parties, with a diving board and slide, and speakers inside and outside for pool-side music - maybe getting into the reggae vibe of the island. Benitoite Shore House blends the best of a private residence along with five-star hotel grade services including a full staff offering, providing the most pampering experience for guests - this is a space to truly indulge and create memories.

The bedrooms are chic and sedate, offering a timeless and elegant charm along with a touch of grandeur with four-poster beds and genteel writing desks, leading to crisp marble bathrooms with rainfall showers. Benitoite Shore House can accommodate eight guests in four bedrooms (with the option for three more children.)

Benitoite Shore House is a magical home, offering pristine accommodation, artfully arranged and thoughtfully presented, a true home-from-home, with a gracious luxury interwoven to its design and every comfort imaginable whilst retaining that archetypal Caribbean upbeat feel.

Benitoite Shore House is nestled on the dazzling north coast of Jamaica, just outside the bustling, colourful town of Ocho Rios. Ochi, as it is known to locals, began as a modest fishing village, and today is a vibrant hub of slick shopping malls, magazine worthy beaches and buzzing nightlife. From white-water rafting to craft shopping, Ochi Rios is a charismatic melting pot of traditional Jamaican life and sleek tourist hubs.

When it comes to dining, there is so much choice; Scotchie is famous for serving the best jerk chicken on the island and it is full of locals. The north of this lush Caribbean island is known for its glitzy developments, crystalline waters and coral reef rich coast, whilst away from the tourist hotspots, there lies a fascinating, colourful culture with music built into its rhythms (birthplace of reggae) and craggy remote mountains through to tropical waterfalls and banana groves.

Dunn River Falls is a star attraction; a spectacular 600-foot waterfall that cuts through a dense emerald forest and spills into sparkling sea waters. Thirty feet offshore, easily reachable by kayak, is the barrier reef complex that covers much of Jamaica's north coast. Taking a kayak out to the live reef will offer a tropical treat of colourful fish and coral, with snorkelling in shallow water or deeper waters for scuba diving.

Hugging the coastline, there is a dazzling array of beaches to choose from; Turtle Beach curls around the bay, offering sweeping white sands fringed with coconut palms and drinks shacks. Mahogany Beach is a great spot for snorkelling whilst Reggae Beach, offers idyllic seclusion.

The beating pulse of Ochos Rios is Main Street; a busy thoroughfare lined on both sides with restaurants, fast-food chains, shopping centres and craft markets, and at night, comes alive with a vibrant nightlife scene.

Whether it be deserted coastline or hikes inland to hidden waterfalls, magical coral reef journeys, or bubbling local culture intermixed with shiny tourist hubs, live music or water sports, the north coast of Jamaica has it all.

Benitoite Shore House is a sublime option for the whole family, whilst the staff presence will ensure parents have a pampering break also. With chef-prepared meals, security at night, the option for tennis lessons and a great set of entertainment options by way of flat screen television and music system, children will be suitably impressed at the facilities.

The north coast of Jamaica consists of the diverse parishes of St Mary, St Ann and Trelawny, the gateway to spectacular scenery once visitors venture a little from the resort complexes, and active youngsters will be able to enjoy trekking or hiking in wonderful nature. Taking a trip deep into the sweeping cane and coconut plantations, rolling farmlands, mangrove swamps and craggy terrain will leave lasting memories.

Jamaica offers endless, thrilling outdoor pursuits for children, for older kids zip lining across the island's rainforests, or younger children will delight at aqua parks and shallow waters beach waters.

One of the picks of the northern coast would be close up dolphin encounters at Dolphin Cove in Ocho Rios, which is immensely popular due to its wide range of appeal to all ages. From feeding them to swimming with stingray to glass bottom boat trips to shark shows and a nature trail, this is an ideal day out for the family.

At week's end, they will present receipts for all food and beverage and reconcile your account. A typical grocery budget is $55-$65 per adult per day and $20-25 per day for preteens. This may vary up or down depending on market prices and menus.(more luxurious items such as shrimp, lobster, imported meats and Champagne will incur a further charge).

    Posted by Ian on 01/11/2018

    Our home for 2 glorious weeks. This was our second year in renting this villa. The villa is on well-kept grounds & is immaculate. The staff is gracious, caring & very eager to please. Denise the cook makes mouthwatering meals and her assistants Jackie, Gloria, Radcliffe keep the villa & the grounds spotless. The 3 dogs, Carrot, Sally & Sugar are friendly & very lovable. We will be booking again for a 2 week stay next year.

  • A wonderful trip

    Posted by Rob & Wendy on 01/10/2018

    It's our last night at Benitoite Shore House and this has been the best villa vacation ever. Seven Seas is beautiful - the setting, the grounds, the furnishings and I can't say enough about the staff and their service. They are professional, kind and their friendly manner was a pleasure. Denise is a great cook and all the meals were delicious. Thank you for all your help and we look forward to our next trip with you.
