Hi, I'm Karleen Edwards, your host at itti Barry Villa in Ocho Rios

Hi, I'm Karleen Edwards!

itti Barry Villa is my family’s vacation home in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

Set on the exclusive beachside Mammee Bay Estate, our family bought itti Barry after the sad passing of my darling husband Barry. 

It was always our dream to one day own a home here in Jamaica: the land of our birth, and when we found this beautiful villa it felt like coming home for my family and our dream of a lifetime was fulfilled. 

In Jamaican, itti means ‘little’ and itti Barry was my husband’s childhood nickname. And so it was that we named itti Barry Villa in his memory. 

Today, itti Barry is not only our vacation home, it’s also yours!

Our four bedroom luxury vacation home is perfect for girlfriend getaways, family get-togethers and corporate stays. The villa features its own private pool, beautiful garden and a verandah where we’ll serve you afternoon tea in the shade. 

Our ambition has always been to deliver a luxury Jamaican vacation experience like no other, where guests can truly kick back, relax and rejuvenate mind, body and soul… and of course have lots of fun and adventures along the way!

At itti Barry Villa you set the pace. Your personal chef will prepare all of your daily meals and our concierge team will organise off-site activities, such as a day trip to Dunn’s River Falls, a horseback beach ride at sunset or perhaps a round of golf?

Don’t feel like leaving the villa? We can organise spa packages and yoga classes on-site in the morning, and then you can head to the beach in the afternoon, which is just a step away.

We have created a Jamaican getaway retreat that we know Barry would be proud of!

Here’s to Barry and here’s to you!

We look forward to welcoming you soon to itti Barry Villa
