Imagine having a 'private reef' to yourself with access to kayaks to ride on. All you need to do is bring your snorkel gear and you get to see the glories of a living coral reef, 1-mile out from your front yard.

The space
This is the Only little private boutique resort we know of that offers the opportunity for you to spend day after day taking in the beauty of a coral reef filled with a variety of marine life. Some of the guests even swim out and back, that is how close it is (distance 1-mile).

Sea Ranch Cottage (cottage closest to the ocean) and Rasta Ranch Cottage sit directly on the water, with a small sandy beach just steps from your door.

Each furnished cottage features a large living/dining porch with privacy shades, a ceiling and table fanned bedroom with queen size bed, fully-equipped kitchen, private bathroom -- and unique open-air showers with reliable electric hot water, outside in a walled garden of flowering vines.

A/C is an additional surcharge of US$15/night, this is paid on island directly by you when you want to use it. We ask that you only use the A/C at night when you are getting ready for bed/sleeping.

Jamaican paintings, carvings and books abound. CD/radio players. Sea kayaks and seabed/floats. Outside grill, separate cookhouse with freezer-fridge and oven, should you wish to hire Laga to cook local meals for US$15 + supplies. Or dine out at a handful of good little places.

One hour from MoBay and Negril, yet off the beaten track in a traditional fishing village, Sea Ranch and Rasta Ranch at Horizon have been featured in Caribbean Travel & Life: Jamaica's Hidden Coast.

Seaside pavilion and jetty. Sea kayaking, snorkeling. Housekeeper, boatmen, guides, night watchman. Dinner can be hired to shop and cook, boatmen and guides available for wherever you want to explore; YS Falls, the Blue Hole Gardens, Negril, Black River to name just a few.

This private seaside compound in an untouristed fishing village and is a favorite of artists, writers, honeymooners and adventuresome first-time visitors who come back again and again.

"Utterly charming" says the Lonely Planet Guide to Jamaica of Sea Ranch and Rasta Ranch, "two sweet cottages in a private oceanfront setting".

-The famous Peter Tosh is a son of Belmont. His monument is just down the road you can walk right over to it, the locals there will show you around -- you may find his CD's or t-shirt on sale as well
-You can hire Laga to take you fishing for US$35/hour
-Kayak to the reef which is about 2.5 km out directly in front of Horizon, were you will see a lot of sea life
-A trip to Negril for some dinner and nightlife.
-Walk to Mt Carey, straight up the hill across the road will take you past the playfield up to a beautiful view of the village and the sea. LAGA is happy to be your guide and introduce you to the locals; farmers riding their donkey or tending there gardens, children playing, etc
-Close by, the town of Savanna-la-Mar (20+ minutes away) for shopping can be arranged as well
-Or you can just take in the sweetness of just do nothing at all (one of mi favorite tings to do on island)

Bluefields Bay, Jamaica

If we have organized an airport transfer driver for you, Horizon is within walking distance to several eateries (to go shacks - to proper sit down/eat-in restaurants):

• RICHARD’s is directly across the street that makes good fried chicken and fish
• DORRETT’S, a 3+ min walk makes great crab cakes and curried lobster
• LUNA SEA, a 20+ minute walk is a fully stocked bar/resturaunt BUT ONLY walk to during the day, because road is very busy and there are no street lights.

There are also handful of small cook shops, rum bars, steam fish/jerk/soup shops within a 15 min. walk on the main road outside the property gates.

LEROY’S BAR on the waterfront just before Belmont Square is a lovely place to watch the sun go down and does delicious steamed fish.

THE BREADFRUIT PUB just opposite also does great fish to order as well as other meat and seafood dishes.

BLUEFIED’S BEACH PARK another great place for curried lobster.
