The SpaceKatamah is our Moroccan Villa in Treasure Beach, Jamaica, a quiet bohemian beachfront retreat with a variety of eco-friendly lodging options. The Cabin is a one-room guest house with three six foot windows over looking the sea, private bathroom with hot water, and private outdoor bamboo shower. This lush property is spread out over two acres of beachfront land, right in the center of Treasure Beach. Ocean breezes and shade from the plentiful fruit trees keep our guest rooms and cabins wonderfully cool. With our elegant veranda and its Moroccan arches; our Japanese bamboo showers, and our Asian-style platform beds, we have created an exotic paradise on the beach. There are several hammocks to relax in, a beachfront patio, a shaded porch by the sea, bikes, lots of water-sports equipment, including masks and snorkels, surf boards, boogie boards and kayaks. Our Beach House has a communal kitchen, large shaded patio and is an excellent place to enjoy dinner while watching the sunset or morning yoga overlooking the ocean. Other popular Katamah activities include hiking, deep-sea fishing, boat tours and exploring local landmarks such as YS Falls and the Appleton Rum Estate. Many of the restaurants and shops are locally owned and operated making this proud tight-knit community one of the safest places in Jamaica. Come stay in one of our stylish Moroccan guestrooms or one of our breezy oceanside cabins, and experience quiet, authentic Jamaica! Guest AccessShared kitchen/ beachside club house -private parking on the premises! Interaction with GuestsKatamah is a beautiful garden on the sea, the villa is surrounded by flowering bushes and the cabins are on the beach! The beach house has a kitchen, indoor outdoor living space and the laid back atmosphere makes you feel so at home like your visiting friends .... Locals offer fresh fruits, vegetables picked that day and fish straight out the ocean!!! The open kitchen inspires people to cook (especially if that's their passion!!) and often a spontaneous meal is planned that morning and becomes a pot luck open to all guests and the none cookers end up bringing the Red Stripe!! Sharing meals with new friends who become your Katamah "Family" it's one of the great experiences guests always marvel at.... The food was free? I don't understand? How do you make money? Yes The experience is priceless. These kind of things are difficult to explain because they are voluntary and spontaneous often done out of pure joy. So guests want to mingle every night down in our beach house (just 15 ft from the Sea!) and some are there for alone time.... At Katamah you do your thing, no pressured meal times, no pressured anything ... Take a bike ride, boat ride ...chat with someone from the other-side of the world or not that is the beauty of Katamah

Saint Elizabeth: Cultural and Historic (website: hidden) Saint Elizabeth Jamaica has many very interesting historic and cultural buildings and sites. They include: Accompong: This village located in St. Elizabeth is named after its founder Accompong, brother of Quao, Cuffy, Cudjoe, and Nanny, the leader and founder of Nanny Town. They were well trained warriors from the Ashanti area of West Africa. Accompong is the only remaining village in western Jamaica inhabited by the descendants of the Maroons. Situated on the south side of the Cockpit Country, the town was founded in 1739 when land was given to them as part of a Peace Treaty with the British. when the second war with the English broke out in 1795, the Accompong Maroons remained neutral and were left untroubled at the end of the war when all the other Maroon settlements were destroyed. Traditional ceremonies are held here on 6th January annually to commemorate the signing of the Peace Treaty and the establishment of the town. Most of the Maroons have gone to other parts of Jamaica to live but they are still proud of their African heritage. Black River - The town of Black River, established close to the banks of the river after which it is named, is one of the oldest in the island. The exact date of its establishment is not known but an 1685 map of Jamaica identified its existence. The town itself is quaint and beautiful, looking southward, toward the shimmering blue Caribbean Sea. Black River was designed by the Leyden brothers of England, three wealthy men who were substantial land proprietors in the area. Today, it is nothing like the busy seaport town it was in the 18th and 19th centuries, when the area prospered from the lucrative logwood trade, exports of rum, pimento and cattle skin from nearby Holland, Vineyard and Fullerswood Estates. The town itself, because of its port, was vital to the slave trade. Slaves were brought here and sold at auction at Farquharson Wharf (see below). Over time, the town grew in size and importance and in 1773 it replaced Lacovia as the capital of St. Elizabeth. By the early 1900s the town was second only to Kingston, the national capital, in importance. The town has many important historic sites and structures and the buildings are of varying architectural styles. You will find examples of Georgian, Jamaican Georgian, British Colonial and Jamaican Vernacular architectural styles. Some of these buildings, particularly those to the western and northern sections of the town are wooden structures. Invercauld Great House, now transformed into a hotel, is probably the most imposing wooden Georgian building on the western side of the town. On April 8th, 1999, the town of Black River was designated a Protected National Heritage District by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust. Black River Court House: The date of construction for the Court House at Black River is unknown however it is described as presenting a fine appearance from the sea and at once attracts the attention of visitors. "Court sessions were originally held at Lacovia, but was later transferred to the town of Black River by an Act dated December 6, 1788. Black River Old Police Station - The construction date is unknown but it could have been built during slavery days. It is remarkable because it was built of molasses, white lime stones and broken bottles. Black River Spa: Located in Black River was one of the more popular spas in the island up until the 1930s. The cold spring which is rich in sulfur and other minerals is believed to have healing properties. It is believed to have cured many ailments. Unfortunately this gift of nature has deteriorated substantially. Hopefully someone will invest and renovate it. Farquharson Wharf – in Black River. The Slave Trade was carried on in Black River at this wharf (then called the “Town Wharf”) where slaves were sold by auction. Notices were published in papers, with comments on the slaves to be sold and the dates of the sale. The land proprietors would then arrive in their tandems (the buggy of those days) and make their purchases. In the early days, the Black River was crossed by a “Float”. It took pedestrians, donkeys loaded for market, mules etc., across. This was replaced by an extension bridge made of wood. When the bridge started to erode, the representatives for the parish invited the Colonial Secretary to see the condition. As a result, the present bridge was built. The bridge was officially opened by Sir Edward Denham in 1938. Hampton School, like Munro College, originated with Robert Hugh Munro who, in his will in 1797, bequeathed a part of his estate to his nephew Caleb Dickenson and the Churchwardens of St. Elizabeth to set up a school in the parish for the education of as many poor children as the funds was able to provide for and maintain. Dickenson improved the property of Munro, so that when Dickenson died in 1821, he was far wealthier than his uncle had been. In his will, Dickenson desired that his Trustees carry out the wishes of his uncle to educate the poor. In 1858, a school for girls was started at Potsdam, on the same property as the Boys' School. This location was not satisfactory and the Girls' School was moved for a short time to Torrington, then to Mount Zion (now called Stirling). By December 1884, there were fewer than 12 girls at the school. In 1885, the school reopened at a new location, Malvern House. By 1891, Malvern House was given up and the school moved to Hampton, formerly known as Fort Rose. The Girls' School eventually became known as Hampton. The school is one of the leading Girls' Schools in the West Indies. There are some interesting buildings on the campus. The original great house from the 19th century is now the administration building. The Chapel, built in the 1920s, is said to contain the finest stained glass window in Jamaica. Invercauld Great House: Located on High Street in Black River on the harborfront. Invercauld House was built in 1894 by Patrick Leyden for a member of the Farquharson family. It is a fine example of Jamaican Georgian architecture, and is typical of the elegant turn-of-the-Century waterfront homes built on High Street in Black River by wealthy merchants. The beautiful Great House is furnished with many pieces from this early era. The original building has been maintained and the attractive additions blend with the original style. Invercauld is a landmark building in Black River and it is currently used as a guest house. Lacovia Tombstones: At the junction of the Lacovia main road and one of the roads to Maggoty lay two tombstones. On one is a large marble slab with the inscription "To Thomas Jordan Spencer" who died in 1738. The other is unmarked. The story goes that a duel at a nearby tavern resulted in the death of both men. They were buried side by side. Tombstones known as the "Lacovia Tombstones" were erected in memory of these men. Spencer's tombstone bears a crest which indicates that he was a descendant of the late Sir Winston Spencer Churchill. Lover's Leap Lighthouse: This Lighthouse was built by the Engineering Department of the Port Authority in Jamaica. It is the most recent lighthouse built in Jamaica. The Lighthouse stands at approximately 1,600 feet above sea level and is powered by three different power sources: a generator, electricity and a set of batteries. Magdala House in Black River: built in the late 19th century. It was built for Tom Leyden, who with partner William Farguharson of Leyden and Farquharson Shipping Company, were two of the richest men in Jamaica in the mid 1880s. The house is a 2-story Victorian building decorated with fretwork. Munro College Buildings: Munro College is an all boys' high school. It stands 2,650 feet above sea level, on the highest peak of the Santa Cruz Mountain in Potsdam. When coffee plantation owner Robert Hugh Munro died in 1798, he willed a sum of money "for the endowment of a school in the parish of St. Elizabeth, Jamaica for the education of poor children of the parish." These funds were bequeathed in a trust to his nephew, Dr. Caleb Dickenson and the churchwardens of the parish and their successors to be used to establish and operate the school. But the funds were used for other purposes until 1856 when the government directed that the remainder of the trust funds be used to establish Munro & Dickenson Free School in Black River. The following year the school was moved to Potsdam, and was at that time the only high school for boys in the western Jamaica.

Painted in alluring hues of turquoises and sea greens to evoke the surrounding Caribbean Sea and with a choice of hiring the whole acre-and-a-half property – a four bedroom main villa and two bedroom sister villa - or just one of each, Seaweed is pioneering a new standard of luxury living with an eco-conscience on Jamaica’s south coast. Interior Design & Style An organically motivated design of four- and two- bedroom beach villas, the interiors of Seaweed feature Caribbean cool colours with dark woods and organic furnishings locally made by Island Art Jamaica. Jakes’ bohemian chic signature style of mosaic tiles, shell adornments and coloured bottles worked into walls is also evident throughout. Guestrooms Spanning five guestrooms - plus a sixth basement games room/bedroom inclusive of four queen size beds, two pull out sofas, full bathroom with shower, large screen TV, pool table and bar - over two buildings, each room, with its ensuite bathroom - incorporating an outdoor shower or deep bathtub and a private veranda facing the ocean - is a serene space for relaxation after a “hard day at the beach.” Facilities A private gym with steam shower overlooking the ocean will provide inspirational views whilst guests work out, while a two-level infinity edge pool and hot tub decorated with mosaics and shellwork is available for those who prefer to remain poolside. Of course no beachside property is complete without a barbeque and Seaweed comes up trumps with its generous outdoor grill decorated with stones and shells in swirling designs in homage to the sea nearby. Also on the site, there is an outdoor bar complete with rattan roof for al fresco entertaining, a fire pit for cosy night time gatherings and outdoor speakers are dotted about to ensure music is available at all times – an important aspect of island living.

                        Seaweed Luxury Villa with its 270 degree views of the ocean becomes the latest member of Jakes’ villa collection which currently includes Calabash Bay Villa (and Calabash Cottage) on the doorstep of Jakes, and Hope House in the picturesque locale of Old Wharf, ten minutes from Jakes proper and which Seaweed Luxury Villa will also call home. Painted in alluring hues of turquoises and sea greens to evoke the surrounding Caribbean Sea and with a choice of hiring the whole acre-and-a-half property – a four bedroom main villa and two bedroom sister villa - or just one of each, Seaweed is pioneering a new standard of luxury living with an eco-conscience on Jamaica’s south coast. Interior Design & Style An organically motivated design of four- and two- bedroom beach villas, the interiors of Seaweed feature Caribbean cool colours with dark woods and organic furnishings locally made by Island Art Jamaica. Jakes’ bohemian chic signature style of mosaic tiles, shell adornments and coloured bottles worked into walls is also evident throughout. Guestrooms Spanning five guestrooms - plus a sixth basement games room/bedroom inclusive of four queen size beds, two pull out sofas, full bathroom with shower, large screen TV, pool table and bar - over two buildings, each room, with its ensuite bathroom - incorporating an outdoor shower or deep bathtub and a private veranda facing the ocean - is a serene space for relaxation after a “hard day at the beach.” Facilities A private gym with steam shower overlooking the ocean will provide inspirational views whilst guests work out, while a two-level infinity edge pool and hot tub decorated with mosaics and shellwork is available for those who prefer to remain poolside. Of course no beachside property is complete without a barbeque and Seaweed comes up trumps with its generous outdoor grill decorated with stones and shells in swirling designs in homage to the sea nearby. Also on the site, there is an outdoor bar complete with rattan roof for al fresco entertaining, a fire pit for cosy night time gatherings and outdoor speakers are dotted about to ensure music is available at all times – an important aspect of island living. Seaweed Luxury Villa provides kayaks, snorkelling equipment and boogie boards for sea based adventures as well as seven mountain bikes (for both adults and kids) for guests to explore the local area. Eco-Friendly Facts Luxury Villa Seaweed has been architecturally designed to be sympathetic to the natural environment and comprises the following eco-friendly features: Solar hot water, provisions for wind generated power, LED lighting, day lighting, Natural and local materials, extensive use of reclaimed lumber, concrete counter tops, natural river stone, rainwater harvesting, recycling gray water to irrigation, use of local and adaptive landscaping. Speaking about the new villa, Jakes General Manager Jason said: “We’re thrilled to add the new Seaweed Luxury Villa to Jakes’ offering. We love welcoming people to the South Coast of Jamaica and Seaweed Luxury Villa will both complement Jakes and provide a new standard of luxury accommodation in this region.

                          The Villa was built in 2011 by a Jamaican family that has had a long-standing love and respect for Great Bay. It was built as a family vacation home that is rented to select very lucky guests. The Villa is located directly on a wide and pristine sandy beach. There are 4 air-conditioned bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms and views of the sea and the rolling green hills behind. Three of the bedrooms have a king-size bed and the fourth bedroom has two queen-size beds. The Villa is equipped with wireless internet, television, apple TV, a fax machine and a landline. There are also a variety of DVDs and books for your use while you are there. Go to sleep to the sound of the sea, wake to bird song, sip your morning coffee on a palm-frond verandah above the wide, sandy beach. Enjoy a drink made for you at the driftwood bar while you lounge on beach chairs in the private pool. Watch the fishermen of Great Bay prepare to go to sea, or meet them as they return with their catch, make a selection to be prepared for your dinner that same evening. Chat and feel the old Jamaican vibe, and experience the quiet pride in this very special part of St. Elizabeth. Getting There: The Villa is located in the small fishing village of Great Bay on the South Coast of Jamaica. The closest international airport to the Villa is Sangster International Airport (MBJ) in Montego Bay. The Villa is approximately 60 miles from the airport and will take about 2.5 hours by car. This journey is a wonderful introduction to Jamaica with a most beautiful journey along the coast and through the mountainous border of the cockpit country. Rent a car or have a personal driver take you there showing you the local lore and attractions along the way. Ranny (a local driver) would be pleased to collect you from the airport for a local minimum rate. By air it is about a 35 minute trip from MBJ on a private plane to the small local Lionel Densham airdrome, a 10 minute drive from the Villa. A private plane or helicopter is not as expensive as one might imagine and the views are spectacular. Again, we would be pleased to assist you in booking.
