Nestled amongst the vibrant greenery of the Caribbean, Minerva House boasts a natural, serene location overlooking a secluded sandy beach with breathtaking sea views. Ideal for those in search of peace and tranquillity in a private, upmarket retreat. The stunning modern architecture commands glorious sea views from the very first moment you enter the house. Once inside there's a fabulous, cavernous living area that attracts a gentle yet cooling sea breeze whilst accommodating plenty of seating and an intimate dining section. This opens out onto a long, spacious covered veranda - perfect for alfresco dining or just to relax with a drink, watching the tropical bird life and superb sunsets. Each of the four cool and airy bedrooms have their own en-suite bathroom facilities, air-conditioning and a ceiling fan. Two of the bedrooms also have outdoor twin showers with sea views as well as direct access to the veranda. Steps lead down from the inviting infinity pool to an attractive, secluded beach with its own reef. There's plenty of good snorkelling and it's also possible to arrange for excursion boats to pick you up from the shoreline. It's a nature lovers paradise with dolphins, exotic birds and even turtles that come to lay their eggs in the sand. Staff: Edwin and Tamesha will greet you with a warm welcome and attend to your every need - from cooking delicious meals of your choice, (including Edwins special barbecue nights) to taking care of housekeeping with a daily laundry service - not to mention making you that perfect pina colada! They're both very knowledgeable about the area and will do everything they can to make it a perfect vacation. All the staff services are included in the nightly rate. The only thing that isn't included is the cost of the food and drink - these you can buy yourself from the supermarkets or you can simply give the staff a list of what you want and they will buy it (you then reimburse them). You can request what meals you would like to eat or just leave it to Tamesha to surprise you with some local cuisine! Area: Treasure Beach is one of the safest and friendliest parts of Jamaica with a real sense of community when it comes to tourism. This laid back oasis is far from the hustle and bustle of the all-inclusive resorts of Montego bay - made up of smaller hotels and upmarket villas there's an abundance of pristine sandy beaches, local culture and authentic Jamaican cuisine. A number of restaurants and casual local eateries are all within a 10 minute drive, including Jack Sprats and the well-renowned Jake's Hotel bar and restaurant. There are a handful of small convenience stores that sell the basics within a few minutes drive; a large supermarket and a bustling daily fruit and veg market are located in Black River - approx 30 minute drive away. Nearby excursions: The Black River safari cruise (get picked up from the beach) - enjoy the natural wildlife along the country's longest navigable river with majestic crocodiles and an abundance of birdlife -stop off at the unique Pelican Bar along the way for a cool drink. The gorgeous YS Waterfalls are approximately one hours drive away - swim in the natural pools, plunge off a rope-swing or fly high above the falls on a zip-wire - it's great fun. More
