About Paolo Del Grande

I'm an Italian who came to Treasure Beach with the intension of having a quiet week long vacation. I fell in love with the area and the people here are just amazing so I made this place my home

Paolo Del Grande purchased this villa in 2001

Why Paolo Del Grande chose Treasure Beach

It is located in a very quiet and more private part of Treasure Beach

What makes this villa unique

No harassments,just beautiful sunsets and the warm blue sea

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Beautifully quaint accommodations for an ideal stay at Treasure Beach.”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2014

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Villa Optima. The house, the rooms, the location, the "staff" who welcomed us and became new friends, and the FOOD! We were in Treasure Beach for a wedding and I truly believe we had the best setup of all the other guests that had come in for the event. We reserved the three bedroom villa with two other couples whom we'd never met but were friends of the bride and groom, and the house is setup perfectly. We all had private bathrooms, easy access to our individual suites, and a shared living area, kitchen, and large porch. We had 2 meals prepared for us every day by Monica and Trudy - and we were blown away with every meal. These ladies could seriously open their own catering service and blow other restaurants out of the water :) The location of Villa Optima was incredibly convenient. You are literally across the street from a small beach cove and within easy walking distance to the area's restaurants. And the care these people took with us during our stay is unmatched. The owner, Paolo, even went out of his way to return some sunglasses my husband left - he shipped them back to the US without being asked! If we ever have an opportunity to travel back to Treasure Beach, there is no question about where we would stay. Our love to all at Villa Optima!

Quiet, Safe, Relaxing with untouched beaches and no crowds

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time during our stay. The south coast is definitely the part of the island that has the least amount of tourists. We met so many locals and they were all so friendly to us. The house is exactly as it is pictured. A beautiful huge wrap around porch where you have your meals prepared and served to you. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom and air conditioning unit, along with a mosquito net (which we never felt we needed). The beds were comfortable with good sheets and good pillows. The food was outstanding - we chose some Jamaican dishes and were very pleased with how delightful the food was. Our beds were made and rooms were swept each day. We spent most of our time at the beach just across the small road, literally steps away. There was hardly anyone else on the beach, it truly felt like we had it all to ourselves. At night after dinner we chose to enjoy the pool and take a dip. Overall very lovely and we expect to return for many more visits in the future. Very kid friendly, our 3 year old loved it.

Big and spacious but rather dark and gloomy especially in the living area. Felt tired, needs TLC

  • 3 of 5

Villa has a lovely garden and pool and is in a beautiful location. Shanique the housekeeper is helpful and is a great cook. But although the Villa is big and reasonably equipped it felt dark and dingy and the 3rd bedroom was decidedly damp. There is a lack of hanging space for clothes, only one wardrobe in the hall and no hooks anywhere. The lightning in the living area and kitchen is poor and not helped by a very ugly yellow paint job. The villa would be much improved if it was all painted white. The terrace is fantastic though, lots of seating and table space and great for big party meals.

April 17th to 27th 2016.

  • 4 of 5

Myself and family just had one of the most incredible vacation experience.

Experience a piece of authentic, rustic, old world Jamaica.

The house is in a great location. Not far from Jakes.

Right across from the beach and beautiful cove so the view can be enjoyed also of the house from the beach.

House is quaint ,and practical.The garden and verandah gives you the ideal indoor out door living.

Pool is set back from the house great if young children are vacationing .

The locals are friendly and warm beautiful people.

PS. If you are only comfortable in a resort setting this may not be ideal.

Also it is a approximately 2.5hrs drive from Montego bay. Seriously consider having a native driver so you can sit back and relax.

The owners are very easy to work with. Also they are next door neighbors.

Hence that also factors into the safety aspect of renting.

Villa Optima great choice.

Good bang for your money.

Peaceful retreat with pampering

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 4 adults and 2 children had a lovely, relaxing week between Christmas and New Year's at Villa Optima. The house was very comfortable, and we loved the shady veranda and pool. The beach is beautiful and convenient (but use caution when the wind and waves are up). Best part: delicious meals cooked and served with humor and grace by Monica and Trudy, who were helpful in so many ways. We truly felt pampered and indulged.

A real gem in Treasure Beach - Beachfront living at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from the most wonderful vacation at Villa Optima. From the moment we arrived we knew we had made a fantastic choice. The villa is well laid out, nicely appointed with a beautiful porch with dining area where we ate all the delicious breakfasts and dinners prepared by Monica. She thoroughly impressed my son with her creative vegan meals. Monica was also very helpful in arranging excursions and even a bonfire on the beach (not to be missed). It is a quiet area, safe and we swam every night in the ocean. Be sure to go to YS Falls, Bamboo Ave., Appleton Rum Factory tour, Black River to see the crocodiles and if you like snorkelling Sunny Island is very good and the Pelican Bar is a must see (with dolphin spotting on the way). We travelled with our son (22), daughter (26) and her fiancee and we all agreed it was the best vacation ever! It is a different experience altogether from the usual all inclusive resorts we have been to many times before. The region is a farming and fishing community and the locals and other tourists were friendly and helpful. You can walk to Jack Spratts if you want to go out for dinner, their pizza is very good. We are so very glad we got to see the real Jamaica! Thank you to owners Paolo and Tia for providing such a wonderful place. We will be back!!!

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 adults and kids and stayed 2 nights. The house is very spatial, with nice terraces, lots of space. Beach is just across the road. It is very quiet, no cars noise. Perfect for big families or groups of friends. But lots of mosquitos, come prepared!
