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

Hi there, I'm Karleen Edwards and I'm excited to share the heartwarming story of itti Barry Villa with you! Here's our story!

itti Barry Villa holds a special place in my heart as it stands as my family’s beloved vacation home in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Situated on the exclusive beachside Mammee Bay Estate, we acquired this stunning villa after the unfortunate passing of my dear husband, Barry.

Owning a home in Jamaica had always been a dream for us – a dream deeply rooted in our birthplace. When we stumbled upon this quaint villa, it felt like destiny had brought us back home to begin our story. The beauty and serenity of itti Barry Villa instantly captured our hearts and became a symbol of hope and new beginnings for my family. It instantly felt like coming home for our family and fulfilling our dreams.
