About Pamela Bliss
My husband and I have had a love affair with Jamaica for over 30 years. The first year we visited Jamaica we were taking a drive east of Ocho Rios when we rounded a corner and saw the most spectacular coastal view we'd ever seen. My husband said, 'Some day we'll have a home with this view.' Little did we know, 12 years later we would be volunteering in orphanages in just this location! After 9 years of volunteer work, we found the perfect property with the view we had fallen in love with 20 years earlier. We purchased the land and built Cabarita Lookout! While we still bring mission teams to stay at Cabarita Lookout, we have also opened the villa up to guest rentals.
Pamela Bliss purchased this villa in 2009
Why Pamela Bliss chose Ocho Rios
We actually purchased land in a location we love and built our own villa. As described earlier, we believe Cabarita Lookout has the most spectacular view in all of Jamaica, a land and people we love. Cabarita Lookout is located about 30 minutes from Ocho Rios in a quiet community atop a hill, sitting adjacent to Noel Coward's estate 'Firefly.' We are close enough to Ocho Rios to enjoy its fine dining, night life and beaches, yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet our hilltop perch affords. Cabarita Lookout views the Caribbean and northern coastline, yet we are surrounded with lush vegetation including banana, mango, lime, papapa and ackee trees. Our caretakers, Cutty and Sharon, have also planted a vegetable garden which provides fresh lettuce, tomatoes, squash and beans. Cutty goes to the sea for fresh fish and lobster and Sharon adds the fresh fruits and vegetables from our land. Cabarita Lookout is a unique property that provides the perfect getaway for the more adventuresome or for those who just want to kick back around the pool and take in a view they'll remember forever.
What makes this villa unique
The benefits of staying at Cabarita Lookout are many. Sharon, our cook, creates fabulous meals out of fresh fruits and vegetables and local fish. We often take a boat from Paggee Beach, our local beach, and set out for pristine unpopulated beaches; my favorite is Black Sands Beach where we hike to an amazing waterfall and fresh water pool. Each morning I love to swim laps in our amazing 'pool with a view.' I love to dine at Toscanini's Restaurant in Ocho Rios and enjoy the night life. I love to sit on the master suite veranda with a glass of wine and melt into the view. I love to have breakfast on the veranda and watch the sun rise over Jamaica. I like to bicycle in the hills surrounding Cabarita Lookout. I love to swim at Moxon's Beach Club and be waited on hand and foot by their amazing staff. But most of all I just love being at Cabarita Lookout, 'far away from the maddening crowds,' and looking out on my little piece of paradise.
Guestbook comments from the owner
From the amazing meals to the Black Sand Beach, I have had the vacation of my life. Sharon has been an absolutely incredible chef; Cutty is my new best friend; and the Blisses have made the past two weeks something that I will be telling stories about for years to come. Jamaica (and the view from the house) is BREATHTAKING. A home away from home is an understatement, I truly feel that I have found something that allows me to forget the worries of home and enjoy the beauty of my surroundings, which is not complete without mentioning the people of Jamaica, by far the most welcoming people I have ever encountered. Pam and Ed have made my time in the awe inspiring country that much more amazing. If I am fortunate enough to travel back to this country there is no question that I will be staying at Cabarita Lookout! Best wishes and many, many thanks.
