Llandovery Estate, Jamaica
Ocean Front Caribbean Sea Villa - Brown Shuggah (Ocho Rios)
Ocean Front Caribbean Sea Villa ‘Brown Shuggah’ (Ocho Rios)
This four bedroom, five bathroom Ocean front villa has an infinity edge pool just off our large covered verandah that is surrounded in a tropical garden. Our villa is conveniently located between the resort towns of Ocho Rios and Runaway Bay on Jamaica's North Coast.
This beautiful home is privately tucked away at Chukka Cove Polo Club, and is at the hub of Chukka Caribbean Adventure tours. ‘Brown Shuggah’ provides a unique access to a true Jamaican experience. This 6,600 square foot villa blends Farm House, Great House, and Caribbean villa all in one. This dream home was built with love and attention, and it really comes out in the details. Designed with three indoor courtyards to bring nature in, it is a very open, warm and inviting home.
Your private paradise has a master and ensuite, sitting room, bathroom and outdoor shower. The master suite includes a living/sitting area with comfy couches and coffee table, and doors that open out to an incredible ocean view. It truly is the perfect place to wake up or unwind after the day. The second and third bedrooms both have ensuite bathrooms.
This home boasts two more living rooms, one inside between two open courtyards (orchid-west and tropical–east), large glass folding doors open onto an expansive furnished covered verandah. There is a powder room, laundry, dining room TV room and adjoining recreational (exercise-elliptical and free weights / kiddies play room) as well as a covered garage. The kitchen opens right into breakfast nook and both enjoy views of the front gardens and the indoor orchid courtyard. It is nestled on a horse farm and is hidden amidst pastures, fruit trees, and lush foliage on the edge of dramatic ocean front cliffs.
Completely opposite to the large all-inclusive resorts, it sits in a large lawn area shared with 6 other privately owned villas. Here in the country, you may wake up to the sound of roosters, can listen to the crickets and frogs songs at night or go for a walk around the polo field and watch the horses returning home. The family dogs Charlie, Madonna and Mr. Bojangles also live on property and do their part to guard the house at night, but will respect your space. They are tended to by the house staff.
Immerse yourself in a true Jamaica experience and soak your cares away in the turquoise waters of the cove or in the private pool used only by Chukka Cove villa residents. A safe place to relax without being locked in a compound!
The cliffs at Chukka Cove are dramatic and extensive, great for exploring or simply listening to the sound of the waves crashing ashore. On calm days, a ladder takes you into the cool clear waters.
On the property is a small sandy cove which is perfect for young children to swim and play. On days when the sea swells are up and you seek calmer waters, a two minute walk along the edge of the polo field takes you to the spectacular Chukka Bay. It is a sheltered bay where the waters are always calm which are great for cliff jumping, swimming and snorkeling.

Serene Setting directly on Ocean with Extraordinary Architectural Details
We had a lovely stay at Brown Shuggah! The house was built and decorated with every detail in mind from the open courtyards within the house to the fabulous wooden doors and drift wood details on cielings and in seperator walls. The views are spectacular and the doors and windows can open to create the indoor / outdoor living that one craves in the tropics! The home is very spacious and all the bathrooms and bedrooms have unique touches and the master has a sitting room and wonderful stone shower. I absolutely loved the family photos and artwork throughout the house and the attached zero entry pool right off the house was great for the kids. Walking down to the ocean everyday and watching the waves crash was like a symphony of mother nature at her best! The house was staffed and made it easy to relax and not worry about meals and cleaning. Door and windows and lighting and AC's were adjusted majically at just the right time each day! Dan and Anna were super helpful pre-trip and during the trip and loved the L'Escargot dinner reccomendation. Chukkah tours that were 25% off as guests were great day trips including the Horseback riding ( a few minutes walk to the property) and the Blue Hole cliff jumping, tubing and zipline tour and the Dunn's River falls snorkeliing and Catamaran Tour were awesome. Clarence was our driver and was so helpful arranging everything and getting us everywhere! Grace, the cook was so hardworking and had fabulous curries and chicken dishes every night and relaxing lunches on the patio. This truly is a spectacular house, setting, staff and owners and a nice relaxing diversion from the typical all inclusive options!”
