About the property

Unbelievably low rates. High standard rental . Clean, comfortable and homely.

Tamarind Apartment is one of three lovely studios sharing the grounds and swimming pool with Pimento and Cinnamon apartments together with Almond Tree Villa.

Tamarind is on the ground floor below Pimento and is designed with comfort and a bit of luxury in mind for either a single person or a couple. We are sure that you are going to love the stylish and homely feel of the apartment.

The polished Mahogany wood floor adds a subtle attraction with a real nice feel under foot.

The apartment is spacious enough with a total inside floor space of 350 square feet. The accommodation comprises of a large bedroom space, kitchen and bathroom. You will enjoy your nights sleeping on the plush, king size bed between crisp fresh Egyptian cotton sheets. Other furniture includes matching bed side tables and a two seater settee.

The flat screen TV offers you a great choice of cable channels. We have one of the better cable packages with dozens of choices for everyone including, movies, sports, news, kids and music and radio.

You will find Tamarind’s modern fully fitted kitchen a pleasure to use with its impressive granite work surfaces. The kitchen is actually larger than the kitchen in the main villa so there is room enough.

And because you are going to be staying with us for at least a week or two we have supplied everything that you are going to need to prepare meals, snacks and drinks during your vacation. There is a four ring gas cooker, a tall fridge/freezer, microwave, electric kettle and toaster, pots and pans, cutlery, a full complement of crockery and the usual kitchen utensils.

Leading through to the bathroom is the closet/wardrobe with plenty of shelves and space to hang clothes and room to place suitcases. And there is a long mirror, a must for the ladies.

The attractive fully tiled bathroom is a good size with a shower, toilet and wash basin. We have a solar powered energy which means we always have hot water, 24/7 and we are not affected by power cuts.

We hope that you will choose to stay with us. Our aim is to offer the best high quality accommodation at the cheapest possible prices to our customers and our rates are some of the most competitive.

For stays of 8 nights or over our house keeping staff will arrange to come in roughly half way through your stay to clean throughout and change bedding.

For bookings of 7 nights or less we will make up the apartment prior to your arrival and after your departure only.

Fresh towels are supplied and replaced twice a week but please bring your own beach towels for use outside on the pool terrace.

For those guests who want to get away from it all Renee is also available to do your washing and ironing. Guests are invited to make a private arrangement directly with Renee.

If guests would prefer to do their own washing they can do so when either Nigel or Renee is on hand to use the washing machine. There is a small charge of $600 JA per wash load to cover the costs and we supply the washing materials.

Tamarind has its own iron and ironing board.

I loved my apartment the tamarind studio it had everything you need for a self catering hoilday and more

on arrival i met Renne and Nigel who live on the property they helped me to settle in and answered any questions that i had. their are a lovely couple plus their gorgeous little boy nickli, i actually came to look on them as family.Anything i needed they were on hand to help me.

Few days later i met the owners Neil and Pauline Grey what can i say about these fantastic people i have so much love for them they went above and beyond for their guests. whlle staying their i met their driver jurnior and his family we went to jurnior's beach where he had cooked some jerk chicken,fish and jurnior cooked some ital stew i never tasted anything so nice sending a big up to jurnior and his family i had great day with them.

Almond tree villa is a very tranquil place and that's i was looking for, i can honstley say that it was my best hoilday ever i've been travilng to jamacia since 2001wouid i recommend it hell yes every time looking forward to December

Just want to say thanks again for a great stay.

Hidden Gem!

The apartment was nice and clean. Great cost for a wonderful stay in Ocho Rios!! Staff was excellent and made us feel comfortable. We will definitely consider Tamarind on our next visit to Jamaica.

Fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying my sister and I have been to Jamaica 5 times and can confidently say this is a great place to stay! The area is quiet, safe, and close enough to Ochi that going into town was no problem at all. We were two couples all of us around 30 years old; one couple stayed in this apartment (the Tamarind) and the other couple in the apartment upstairs (the Pimento). The Tamarind is a bit smaller than the Pimento, but both were more than suitable apartments (not that we spend a ton of time indoors when in Jamaica anyway!) It was a great way to travel together but still have separate apartments for privacy! Nigel, the caretaker who lives on the property was helpful and friendly and was available if need be anytime. The pool was great! It was cool and clean and such a nice break from the heat! The apartments were also clean and tidy and were set up with almost everything you need (tv, pots, pans, cutlery, towels, hangers, full length mirror etc). I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for accommodation close to Ochi but with a "living with the locals" feel!

Amazing little find!

  • 5 of 5

I've just returned from a 2wk stay at Tamarind and already wondering when I can return, transfers to the apartment were made by Junior a brilliant guy with a wealth of knowledge of Jamaica and a real love for Ocho Rios really made the journey fun and informative. We arrived at the villa quite late so Junior stopped for us to stock up on necessities and also and one of the many local restaurants for us to have a bite to eat. We arrived to a lovely welcome from the owner Neil and his super wife Pauline, the apartment itself is simply divine ideal for a couple and the exceptional poolside view. The villa is situated in the pretty town of Eltham which was nice and tranquil but near enough to enjoy the hustle and bustle if that was what you desired.

We loved every moment of our stay the hosts were so warm and welcoming and the staff so friendly, I will definitely be returning!!!!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time staying at the Almond Tree property, usually my family, friends and l rent the villa but this time as l was travelling alone I decided to stay in the Tamarind Apartment which is situated at the back of the property.

At first I was a bit apprehensive about renting the apartment because I have stayed in a few studios before that have felt cramped like I was in a box but I was pleasantly surprised at how big the Tamarind actually is. It has a large kitchen that is equipped with all the things that you would need to cook your own meals plus lots of storage for food supplies.

The bed/living room is very spacious and has a double bed and sofa and didn't feel at all crowded when I had people over to visit especially as there is also seating outside on the verandah.

The owner Neil and the staff Nigel, Junior and Lorraine are really friendly and helpful, they are always available if there are any problems or you just want advice on the best restaurants, beaches or places to visit.

I will be returning to Jamaica next year and I have already booked the Tamarind for my stay.

The Almond Tree Villa and the Tamarind Apartment have become my home's away from home and I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
