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

We had a great staying at Marukamba. The place in real life is even better than in the pictures. It is a wonderful house in a splendid location. The host Gaby and her helper Sarah were very nice and helpful. Treasure Beach is the perfect place to relax and unplug from the rest of the world, and also to experience jamaican culture and lifestyle from a small but lively local community. Definetely recommended, much love from Italy!.

I took my inlaws to show them another side of Jamaica and it was perfect. The roads to get here are awful, but once you are here, you literally want to leave. The house has a rustic/natural feel. It's works, just go. Bring good friends, good book/games and drink of choice and watch the sun go down. Love it. Thanks

We happened to get to Jamaica just before a major storm. Our drive from Montego Bay to Treasure beach was adventurous to say the least. The road over the island is a bit scary. Lots of pot holes and narrow roadways. Had it not for the rain it wouldn't have been quite as scary. But once we got to burakumba we were welcomed and put to ease! The following day was a major storm, one that most locals say they had never seen one quite so bad. The town was flooded in on one side and the road was crumbling away. Through all of this, the town and Sarah were very helpful! We had a great time and are already planning to go back!

Hi Brandy, we're so happy you enjoyed your stay so much and are planning to come back, even with your parents this time ... nice :)! The storm was quite an event indeed, unseen in the history of Treasure Beach. Luckily after just a couple of days everything went back to normal, including the roads, as if nothing ever happened ... long live mother nature ;). One love, Hans & Sarah.

Being right by the beach (about 5 min walk) was a luxury. Having the whole place to ourselves was amazing. Nobody bothers you up there unless you want to (except ginger!!). You constantly feel the breeze coming into the house! We came right after a heavy rain so there was alot of mosquitos but Sarah was very accomadating as was the whole community and Hans was was very helpful if we needed anything. The stairs killed me though lol.
