Overview

Wedding Venue Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach

Yhardly is a crisp and contemporary home set in traditional Jamaica, set on Treasure Beach on Jamaica’s south coast, overlooking the sweeping coast on its doorstep.

This sumptuous abode offers a relaxed and low-key tropical idyll, in a particularly tranquil spot, where the sounds of the sea can be heard and the scent of jasmine lingers in the air. In classic Caribbean style, there is an upbeat feel to this airy home, whilst indoor and outdoor living interplay naturally. Sitting back with a rum cocktail on the swinging benches in the evening as the sun sets across the bay will be about as good as it gets.

Whilst being sleek and modern, this home has recurrent local and rustic touches, such as the unique thatch roofed dining gazebo, an ideal space to sit back as a family or group and enjoy the culinary delights prepared by the chef, fragranced by herbs from her own garden.

The interiors blend the same chic, minimalist and understated design, combined with a fresh and neutral palette, offset by rustic style, driftwood shelving, water pipes inside hollow logs, an outdoor shower masquerading as a tree, and a stone garden walkway studded with 500 tiny squares of blue glass that gleam in the sun. The rough-edged driftwood at Yhardly blends charmingly with the crisp, clean lines of this unique home.

With pops of vivid colour, sumptuous fabrics, delightful ethnic patterns, this home has a super relaxed vibe so it - set in secluded tranquillity, with a bohemian grace that is a far-cry from the anonymous resorts. The luscious gardens are a myriad of tropical plants and bright, fragrant blossom.

Eight guests can be accommodated across four bedrooms, each of these offer boutique hotel style comfort, crisp quality cotton bedlinen and breezy Caribbean charm along with accents of fuchsia and aqua.

Yhardly is a vibrant home, imbibing the styles and flavours of the south coast, true to its fishing village roots with the natural timbers and local raw materials, along with an edge of designer finesse and stylist’s glamour, ideal for getting away from the bustle of the crowds and indulging in unadulterated tranquillity.

Treasure Beach, in contrast to the north coast of Jamaica, is less developed and less known for glitzy resorts, more known for its sweeping long beaches, and being a little more bohemian and ‘off-the-beaten’ track than the north. Formerly a fishing village, today this spot is known for its sporting credentials - with the development of a sports park open to everyone from local kids to international sports stars. Venus and Serena Williams have taught tennis on the courts.

True to its name, Treasure Beach is a six-mile stretch of coral-toned and sometimes black sands, hidden coves and rocky crevices. For those seeking a taste of the vibrant local culture, a visit to one of Treasure Beach’s main bays such as Billy's, Calabash, Fort Charles and Frenchman’s will hit the right note, for less trodden spots.

This part of Jamaica offers a taste of local life - friendly fishermen dock their brightly painted canoes with the day’s catch, and local dishes are aplenty, from curried goat, jerked meat and pumpkin soup from roadside and beachside stands, whilst the clear waters are ideal for snorkelling.

Circa an hour’s drive in-land and visitors will be able to take in the delight that is YS Falls - one of Jamaica’s finest natural offerings, with seven waterfalls, several which cascade into natural pools. A 120-foot cascading waterfall network sits amid 2,000 acres of pastures on a privately-owned estate, owned by the same family for over a century and where thoroughbred race horses and purebred Jamaica Red cattle are reared. With rope swings and zip wires, visitors can whizz through the tropical rainforest canopy overhead enjoying the falls from overhead as well as an adrenaline buzz.

A boat ride through Jamaica’s largest river with a tour of the wetlands and Black River wildlife is a leisurely way to explore this region, whilst Pedro bank is a fascinating bank of sand and underwater heritage which offers shipwrecks, sunken vessels, parrots and colourful fish life.

    Posted by Judy on 01/12/2018

    We wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic trip to Out of the Blue. The staff are the best. The food was great and the villa beautiful.

  • A Great Time

    Posted by Kellie on 01/11/2018

    We had a wonderful time at Yhardly, the house was wonderful, beautiful views for sunset & sunrise. Listening to the waves crashing the Villa staff was unbelievable thank you Miss Bev, Donna & Randy we hope to see you again they never seem to forget anything we asked for, the meals fantastic & that banana bread for the flight home hit the spot. A Great Time was had by all. Oh I forgot to mention our driver Ranny wonderful knowledge which hit the spot with my dad who had ALL the questions.

  • Oh my!

    Posted by Susan on 01/10/2018

    I have just got back from Yhardly. Oh my! Great Bay was lovely … silver moon on the water … just spectacular … gorgeous calm sea stretching into the horizon ... a small dark line only every now and then as a wave curls over … an early morning runner on the beach and a fishing boat heading out to Pedro Banks, silvery wake behind him ... lovely staff looking after us … so difficult to tear ourselves away and head back to reality! Well worth the extra drive time, just as you promised. We’ll be back … we’re a sure thing! Thank you so much!
