Die Unterkunft


Welcome to Barukamba, the cozy and colorful hideaway nest of famous Jamaican dub poet Muta Baruka and fashion designer Jackie 'Amba' Cohen.

Barukamba, situated in laid-back Billy's Bay (Treasure Beach - St. Elizabeth), has a unique vibe and architecture. Completely made out of wood, it is built on a rock facing the ocean. The front terrace opens up on one of the most beautiful ocean views in Treasure Beach, while the beach is only 250 meters away.

If you are looking for a real Jamaican living experience, then Barukamba is the perfect spot. We consider our visitors not as tourists, but as our guests. Our friendly staff will make your stay as pleasant as possible, without interfering with your privacy.

We will gladly assist you with transport to the house. We can pick you up at the airport, give information on car rental, send road descriptions, explain you how to take public transport, etc. The choice is yours.

Once you have arrived at our place your Jamaican housekeeper Sarah will welcome you. As a long time resident of Billy's Bay and neighbor of Barukamba (she is living at the bottom of the stairs leading to the house), she will tell you everything about the area: where to shop, eat and drink, how to get to the different beaches, where to find the best spots to mingle with the locals, and much more.

Sarah can shop and cook for you as well. She does this with a smile and for a reasonable fee. The fee depends on the kind of dish you would like to savor and has to be arranged with her in person. Guests preferring to do their own cooking can do so in the fully equipped kitchen of the house.

The Barukamba house consists of:
- 1 master bedroom (36 m2) with a large and comfortable double bed, offering a gorgeous view on the ocean
- 1 mezzanine (9 m2) with a double mattress, the ideal bedroom and playground for kids
- a spacious living room (33 m2) with a colorful ethnic look and feel
- a fully equipped kitchen (fridge, stove, microwave, blender, coffee maker, toaster, ...) (12 m2), annex bar counter serving as dining table
- a funky bathroom (9 m2), its azure tiles and colored window pane creating an underwater feeling
- a back terrace (28 m2) and private garden (120 m2) with two swings, a sink for doing the laundry, and an outdoor grill for the best of barbecues
- a large front terrace (25 m2) with a 180° view on the ocean during the day, and an amazing view on the stars and the milky way at night

The Barukamba house is the ideal place for relaxing, spending time at the beach, reading or writing a book, enjoying some lovely food, discovering the country side, and integrating yourself into the local community of farmers and fisher men. Far away from the hustle and bustle of some of Jamaica's better known but overdeveloped tourist destinations like Negril or Montego Bay, it is located in one of the few spots on the island that are still left unspoiled.

For those guests wanting more action, we offer hiking tours, bike tours, boat tours, and other excursions. In general we assist our guests with any kind of trip they would like to make, be it a visit to a well known tourist attraction (Appleton rum factory, Pelican Bar, YS falls, the Maroons' Accompong town, Port Antonio, ...), or the discovery of a local beauty spot (hike across the reef to Lover's Leap, exploration of the Bluff, ...).

Whichever type of holidays our guests have in mind, we always try to exceed their expectations. And by keeping our rental fee down we offer one of the best price-quality relations in the area.

Our rates are:
high season (December - April) = 90 US$/night for 1 or 2 persons + 25 US$/night for each extra person
low season (May - November) = 65 US$/night for 1 or 2 persons + 25 US$/night for each extra person
Minimum stay is 2 nights. Maximum number of guests is 4.
Prices include accommodation and cleaning. Tipping the housekeeper is appreciated.

Should you need any kind of additional information, or should you have any questions, please contact us.

Come and experience the magic.

One love,
the Barukamba team

Wir wurden wie vereinbart am Flughafen Mobay abgeholt und für den vereinbarten Betrag bis zur Unterkunft gefahren. Hat alles Hans ganz unproblematisch geregelt. Vor Ort wurden wir von Sarah empfangen und sie hat uns die Unterkunft gezeigt und uns in allem unterstützt und bei allem geholfen. Alleine Sarah ist ein Traum von einem Menschen. Man fühlt sich hier gleich zu Hause und wir haben drei fantastische Wochen dort erlebt. Wir können Barukamba nur allen weiterempfehlen, die einen tollen Urlaub, weit abseits vom Massentourismus, verbringen wollen.

Wir hatten einen super tollen Aufenthalt in Barukamba und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet, sauber und der Ausblick vom großen Balkon ist atemberaubend, einfach traumhaft! Vielen Dank auch an Sarah, die uns sehr herzlich empfangen hat und für Fragen immer da war. Sie hat uns auch eine Bootsfahrt zur bekannten Pelican Bar organisiert. Wir können Barukamba auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen! :)

The Barukamba is one of the most amazing Airbnb experiences we've had. The house is way bigger than you'll think from the pictures and is at the top of a hill - stunning views of the ocean. We loved the feeling of 'living with nature', large open windows facing the ocean, calling asleep to the sound of waves and waimg up watching them the very first thing. Interior and the house is a sight itself, very creative and artistic feel to it. Billy's Bay was our favourite place in Jamaica, such a serene and authentic neighbourhood where we instantly felt like home. Enjoy food from Strikie T's stall just down the road, enjoy the beach and watch the stunning sunset from the terrace. Treasure Beach is a short ride away or about 20 min walk, where you'll find more shops and places to eat. This is Jamaica at its best, where you'll meet the friendly locals and fulljoy its beautiful vibes. Thanks for a great stay!
