If you are looking for a luxury vacation or getaway which embraces authentic Jamaica, this is the perfect gift to yourself.
Situated on Jamaica's tranquil south coast, near the border between Westmoreland and St. Elizabeth, is the new Google 5-star rated villa that has captured the hearts of both locals and tourists alike.
I believe that its spectacular view of the ocean, private beach, clean and spacious interior, modern amenities, secluded location (yet a minute away from the local flavour) and the unparrallled client service is what makes it super special.
Perhaps that is why Alfred Dawes, a recent visitor calls it, 'a slice of heaven'.

Maura, the proprietor has been pressing me to visit for a few months now, although it just officially opened this February.
Well, I finally made it, on reason of my wife's birthday getaway!
This time she preferred not to have the excitement and fanfare, just something that would allow her (and me, happy to say) to enjoy a quiet, reflective time together.
And it was exactly what the doctor ordered! We had a wonderful time.
I might not have done it much justice, but I've curated a few photos that I'll share with you right now.
I am hoping that it'll give you a feel of the uniqueness of this little gem. Here we go, enjoy... scroll down

The guest room with 2 queen beds and a/c with modern bath
Yes, this is a loaded mango tree! And yes, I got two fit ones :-)
By the way, I saw quite a number of young fruit trees, from ackee and orange, to papaya and coconut... especially coconuts, another year or so Maura can invite me to coconut fest :-)

Look further out,... noticed someone standing on the rock fishing? :-)
Yep, she is nervous, not used to climbing mangroves :-)
I Should Tell You...
Amenities includes wifi, cable, smart tv, kayaks, snorkeling equipment, and yes a private beach!
Ivy's Cove is perfect for corporate meetings, weddings, conferences, retreats and even birthday parties. Maura has a way to transform the villa according to your preferences.
The price is typically USD$500 per night per room, but she is willing to accommodate locals at special rates.
Two units are available for rental and each unit sleeps 6 persons (2 rooms x 3 beds per unit)
A personal chef can be had for just $34 USD per day.
According to Maura, several cultural and reggae music ambassadors have already graced Ivy's Cove. These include Busy Signal, Konanja and Krysie. They love it here!
Look out... this exciting new villa will soon be featured in the prestigious Indulge Magazine as well as Places and Spaces and JN Weath magazines.
