Shakti Home

Shakti Home is the quintessential beach cottage designed to open up to the outdoors allowing you to fully embrace your tropical surroundings. A plunge pool located right off the verandah, spiral outside shower, shady yoga hut, lounging beds, and the al fresco dining area add to the experience.

Two en suite bedrooms each with a king-sized bed, kitchen and living/dining area are located in the main house.

The Shaktini Suite located directly behind the main house on the 2nd floor offers a large en suite bedroom with a king-sized bed, a shaded tree house deck furnished with dining table and hammock, and a rooftop sun deck, provides lots of privacy.

Audrey will cook fabulous breakfasts and dinners for you each day. McCarl will make sure you are secure and all your needs are met.

There is nothing left for you to do but sit back, relax, and enjoy!

A Spectacular Beach Home...far from the madding crowd!

Before booking Shakti, we read the reviews below and noted that many included mention of the villa staff - Audrey and McCarl. Having had our own incredible experience at Shakti, we now understand why. They are truly part of the reason you would want to return. Audrey's cooking is amazing - her cream of pumpkin soup and grilled shrimp are out of this world! McCarl is not to be outdone - his burgers and jerk chicken rival any gourmet burger bar! They both keep Shakti running in pristine order and really make you feel like you've come to your 'home' on the beach.


The villa itself is in a stunning location - right on the beach for lovely long walks, with beautiful rock pools filled with fish. Our beach adventures were accompanied by Max, the villa's non-intrusive, yet very companionable dog. The pool is great for kids or just lounging. We loved the yoga deck for cocktails and watching the sunset, while the kids loved hanging out in the hammock overlooking the beach! The bedrooms are nicely appointed and the view from the rooftop deck of the Shaktini suite is breathtaking - accessed from a lovely treehouse deck below!


We were particularly impressed with the care and detail the Treasure Tours team and the Shakti staff took in ensuring that we all felt comfortable in our new Covid normals - constant sanitisation of surfaces, distancing, etc.


If you are looking for an escape '...far from the madding crowd...', Shakti Home and Treasure Beach are it! Many thanks to Rebecca, Amanda and the Treasure Tours team for giving us a lovely escape! We are already planning our return!

Simply Wonderful!

Initially, when I saw the photos of the Shakti Home online, I thought it was a large place and maybe would be too big for just myself and husband - BUT, I was pleasantly surprised - the place was not that big at all, but just PERFECT for the two of us with space to spare.


"Simply wonderful" is the phrase that I think best captures the Shakti Home and Shaktini Cottage -'the Love Shack and our stay there. From the wonderful welcome by Rebecca, who even offered and assisted with taking in our luggage from the car, to the absolutely delicious meals which were lovingly prepared by Audrey each morning and afternoon - paying keen attention to each of our likes and dislikes and still creating sumptuous meals, to the faithful watchful eyes and presence of Max (the dog) - as she alerted us to anyone who passes or came close to the Shakti Home, whether they were passing on the beach or entered the property - Simply Wonderful!


Having access to the bicycles to explore the community was invigorating and fun - we were even blessed with a large cantelope from one of the farmers on one of our rides in the community.


The roof top deck of the Shaktini was also marvelous for my husband and I and we thoroughly enjoyed dinner on the roof deck as we watched the sun set.


I think though, that what made our experience and stay so wonderful for us was being literally right there on the beach! The sound of the waves on the beach was a constant soothing factor 24hrs of the day!! Whether we were in the plunge pool, lounging on the pool verandah deck, relaxing in the hammock or being lulled to sleep at the end of the day - seeing and or hearing the waves while at the Shakti Home was - Simply Wonderful!

The most relaxing vacation

From the minute we arrived and were greeted by Rebecca, Miss Audrey and McCarl, we were taken with the beauty and sense of calm at Shakti Home. Not only is the home decorated thoughtfully and beautifully, every little touch adds a sense of peace as there are beautiful quotes and Buddhas placed all over the home. We spent all of our time enjoying the pool, which is salt water and was so nice on our skin. The ocean being just steps away was incredible. Miss Audrey's cooking was an absolute highlight and we wanted to take her back with us. I could not have asked for a better week to relax and will 100% be back to stay at Shakti Home soon. Also, Max is the sweetest pup and the best guard dog!! We love Shakti Home!!!

fantastic place

Keep in find it is a far drive from the airport - about 2 hours. Thorough Treasure Tours we book a limo up and back. They always say, "anything worth waiting for.....". And this is true with the Shakti Home. The home itself is fantastic, and the separate "quarters" in the rear is perfect for privacy - in fact its like a master retreat! cooking was great and service (cleaning up, making beds etc) was excellent.


It is stated that the small town is in walking distance, and it is, but - its very hot and about a 15 min walk, so we rented mopeds. This turned out to be great as they delivered them full of gas, and picked them up when we were done with them 3 days later So we go to see the island etc. Several places to eat in the nearby town and we did that typically at lunch, since dinner and breakfast were personally cooked for us at the home.


The beach was quite turbulent so swimming was not possible. It just began to clear for the previous very windy days, about the time we were leaving. There is a protected swimming area about 100 yards from the house and it was good.


The Treasure Tour group was fantastic about being sure we were happy and well taken care of. They came by the home to be sure all was ok, and offered to do anything that needed done. Cant get better than that!


So.... if you want a peaceful, quite, retreat - away from the hustle and hassle of the resorts with people selling you crap on the beach - this place is it! The private infinity pool is fantastic and a welcome cool down after the day.

Piece of Paradise

We thoroughly enjoyed our 7 night stay at Shakti Home. There were 4 people in our group and the home fit all of our needs. It was nice to be able to split the 2 couples up between the master suite and Shaktini suite. It provided the perfect amount of privacy.


THE ACCOMMODATIONS -

Both suites were well appointed with comfortable beds. The rooms were clean. The sounds of the sea were soothing. The patio furniture is very comfortable and is where we spent a lot of our time. The infinity pool is perfect for sunbathing. It is a bit cool, but refreshing in the heat. We took a couple rafts with us, but they have 2 lounge chairs in the water that were nice as well. The wi-fi worked very well. All in all, great!


THE FOOD -

Miss Audrey is simply amazing. Her dishes were all incredible. She crafts amazing meals in a very modest kitchen space. McCarl does a great job assisting her. The grilled fish, jerk pork and pepper steak were our favorite dinner dishes and breakfast never disappointed either. Ask her to make you banana pancakes - they were delicious!


THE STAFF -

As mentioned above, Miss Audrey is great. In between preparing meals, she keeps the home clean and tidy. She also did a great job shopping prior to our arrival, not missing a thing from our list of preferences. McCarl is on-site nearly 24/7 and is a phone call away for any needs should you not be able to locate him on the property. He is knowledgeable about the area and pointed us in the right direction when we went to town to find pizza! We also can't leave Max (the house dog) out. We grew to love having Max around! She is quite the dog - sweet and protective of her home and guests!


We only had a few things that we noticed needed attention, but were pretty easily overlooked -

-The kitchen could use an upgrade as the appliances are dated and the space is pretty cramped. A new refrigerator with a larger capacity would be great. We struggled keeping things cold / frozen as the fridge was packed full.

-The bathrooms could use a little TLC - the shower head in the master bath didn't function as intended and water was usually cold.

-There are 4 bicycles available to use. They have definitely been on several journeys and have some issues.


We will definitely be coming back to Shakti Home! It was sad leaving this piece of paradise, but we will count down the days until we can return!

We just returned from a week stay at Shakti Home and couldn't be more pleased with our decision to stay at this fabulous property. Upon arrival, we were greeted by two smiling faces who grew to be some of our absolute favorite people. Miss Audrey and McCarl are the very best. They don't skip a beat and made sure that our every need was met during our trip.


I am giving this property 5 stars for the following reasons -


1) The view - from nearly everywhere in the house, the view of the sea is spectacular. Not only do you get a glimpse of paradise from every glance, the sounds of the waves are soothing and peaceful.


2) The food - Miss Audrey is a phenomenal cook. Meals are packed with flavor and well thought out. Each day we pushed ourselves away from the table full and happy. Jerk pork, pepper steak and grilled mahi mahi were our favorite dinner dishes. We can't leave McCarl out here though as he was in the kitchen as well helping to prepare meals and set up for service.


3) Overall accommodations - the rooms are well appointed and have comfortable beds, the pool is in a perfect location on the property and is very refreshing during hot days, the furniture in both patio areas is perfect and provides wonderful place to relax.


I will add that there are a few things that need some attention though - the kitchen could use a refresh. New appliances and a bigger space for Miss Audrey and McCarl to work their magic would make this home so much better. The refrigerator is small and the stove has seen better days.


The shower head in the master bathroom did not work as it was intended to and there were a lot of ants in the bathrooms.


There are 4 bicycles and they were pretty worn down. I would suggest getting bikes with gears as this would help riders on uphill treks.


All in all, we were very pleased and were able to overlook the things that need some improvements. We will definitely return...mainly to see Miss Audrey and McCarl as they truly are one of the biggest highlights of this property!

BOOKING

Booking was easy and received the longest set of directions. We paid offline because TripAdvisor had issues with my card. That was really scary because it cancelled a day before I was to checkin. Thankfully Debiann and team had a quick workaround after I called in panicked. Thanks guys!


DIRECTIONS

Possibly impossible. Lol we found it but honestly only due to a LOT of late night calls and prayers and triple checking the gas. Some short naps, snack stops and so on. It went on forever. Again the team really helped here or I may have just slept in the car. We arrived in the early AM. Very long drive. Be prepared! Instructions are not always translatable at night because there are no lights in some areas. The only guarantee is the lovely voice on the phone ushering you in to a nice meal


MEALS

Audrey is the best. No complaints I have pictures of every meal. They were all picture perfect and even with 5 star reviews she is underrated.


STAFF

All excellent. I was worried about a dog being on site but after she alerted us to a few tourists (before running off to investigate and get a head run) I grew to love Max too!!!


All the staff are excellent and courteous. Sometimes I wish the layout of the main room allowed for more privacy. I didn’t want to be rude while they worked so I usually excused myself to other areas.


BATHROOM, WATER

All good here. The shower head is on reason I booked. Was not disappointed


Outside bathroom is handy and perfect


DESIGN, DECOR

I agree with a review on decor. Naked pictures of the owner was maybe made me feel like I was prying into someone’s life lol. Sofa could be replaced or restuffed. LOVED the Bluetooth and surround sound. Made my trip!! Lots of good music and open air living room was EVERYTHING. Heavy yoga influence. Minimal reflection of Jamaican culture anywhere. Not the people, music, culture or landscape. It’s heavy-handed yoga and Indian appropriation themes throughout. Without context or meaning it just seems like a logo or signage or some religious symbol inscribed everywhere. It felt like there was a not-so-subliminal message throughout the property.


POOL

Great chairs. Great pool. Very cold. Nice to have when you don’t want to or can’t go in the sea.


BEACH and PATIO and ROOF

All perfect and relaxing. Lots of small books to go disappear and unwind alone. The roof is over the back room and there is a nice lounge. There are basically 5 patios in this little property. Exquisite planning for the leisure traveller. My other favourite part of the property. Then when you can’t decide which patio to go relax on, you still have the beach!! Haha! Had breakfast lunch or dinner on the various patios. Love love loved it. Thanks to the owner for this foresight.


ANTS and ROACHES

I saw some beach crabs. Hummingbirds and other birds. Maybe this is why I saw no ants or roaches inside.


Audrey is so efficient. Nothing was left out to attract insects.


There are some by the pool chair but very negligible. Reports have been exaggerated or addressed by the staff.


ROOMS

Only needed one room. AC in the rooms. Well needed. Living room was breezy and cozy. Not the largest room for a big family but perfect for 2


DISHES

the platters were plastic. Plastic plates and cups. Had to ask Audrey not to serve any hot food on plastic. She switched to the ceramic and glass thankfully. I would ask the owner to improve the dining experience a bit. Better utensils, plates, platters. Because the food and location deserve a 5 star table setting


MISC

Enjoyed coconut water smoothies and lots of vegan dishes. There are a lot of local health practitioners like yoga, massage, rasta healing and other wholistic professionals. I loved that. The beach is quiet. No tourists. You can bike or walk around. The place is so idyllic and pretty. Very rural. A man came by selling papayas. We had the best and sweetest papayas and best avocado. Close to the town and lots of activities and adventures.

I could go on and on.


It was divine. I rated 5 stars despite some minor updates to decor and dinner servings. I was so happy here and hope to return again. Thanks for great service and a truly unique property.

PERFECT Beach Villa Getaway

I cannot say enough good things about my week at Shakti Home. The location is unbeatable. I've been all over Jamaica but Treasure Beach is my new favorite spot. The beach is at your doorstep and the town is so welcoming! Miss Audrey is an amazing cook and McCarl makes sure everything is taken care of --- all you have to do is enjoy 🙂 can't wait to go back!

Can't get closer to the ocean than this

This villa is perfectly located in the Treasure Beach area, and right on the beach! All you hear is the sound of the waves, and all you see is the blue ocean. This is an extremely well-kept and comfortable villa. The furnishings (and beds) are comfortable, the pool is pristine, and has a swimming beach only steps away. Audrey the housekeeper is an INCREDIBLE cook. Best food we ate in Jamaica was prepared by her. McCarl was very helpful whenever we needed anything. Max, the dog was a welcome companion (he'd walk with you on the beach, and watch your towel as you swam!). We will definitely be back.
