Lonely Planet calls Horizon Cottages, “Utterly charming.”
This private seaside compound in a untouristed fishing village is a favorite of artists, writers, honeymooners and adventuresome first-time visitors who come back again and again.
Sea Ranch Cottage (cottage closest to the ocean) and Rasta Ranch Cottage sit directly on the water, with a small sandy beach just steps from your door. Each furnished cottage features a large living/dining porch with privacy shades, a ceiling and table fanned bedroom with queen size bed, fully-equipped kitchen, private bathroom — and unique open-air showers with reliable electric hot water, outside in a walled garden of flowering vines.
Jamaican paintings, carvings and books abound. CD/radio players. Sea kayaks and seabed/floats. Outside grille, separate cookhouse with freezer-fridge and oven, should you wish to hire a local cook for marketing and dinner service. Or dine out at a handful of good little restaurants.
One hour from MoBay and Negril, yet off the beaten track in a traditional fishing village, Sea Ranch and Rasta Ranch at Horizon have been featured in Caribbean Travel & Life: Jamaica’s Hidden Coast.
