9 Selbourne Gardens, Smith Terrace, Eltham, Ocho Rios, St. Ann

Almond Tree Villa and the three studio apartments Pimento, Tamarind and Cinnamon are situated together on the same lot within the upscale estate of Selbourne Gardens in the peaceful suburban district of Eltham.

Selbourne Gardens was highlighted in the Sunday Gleaner as one of the most desirable places to live in and around Ocho Rios. Most of our closest neighbours are elderly returning residents from either USA or UK.

It’s a quiet and private location tucked away at the end of a Cul-de-sac with no through access to non-residents. We are sure you will enjoy the peaceful, safe and secure feeling that the local area offers and at the same time it is literally only a 10 minute drive into the heart of Ocho Rios town centre.

The Eltham route taxis run past the entrance to Selbourne Gardens every few minutes.

On the other side of the ball park Eltham has a couple of friendly local bars and convenience shops and a top class barber called Scada.

The nearest beach where White River meets the sea is less than a mile away and there are several other lovely beaches within a couple of miles of the property.

James Bond Beach

Mango Beach

White River Beach

Mango Beach at Coconut Grove is a favourite with many of our guests. They have a little beach bar and food is usually available.

There is a small supermarket and other shops and bars at White River and you can eat the freshest fried fish and bammy right by the riverside at the local fry fish joint opposite the Fisherman’s Pub.

It is only 3 miles from the property to downtown Ocho Rios. 'Ochi' is a splendid major tourist resort with an impressive array of hotels, restaurants, bars and night life. The market is well worth a visit with its huge selections of exotic fruits and vegetables.

Other nearby tourist attractions include the famous Dunns River Falls, Mystic Mountain, Prospect Plantation and Chukka Cove for horse riding, Dolphin Cove where you can swim with the dolphins, Island Village, Bob Marley's birthplace at Nine Mile and playwright Noel Coward's house Firefly with its spectacular view over Port Maria.
