Enjoy the sun drenched days of Negril on a two acre beach front estate offering uncompromised privacy with its two private beaches where swimsuits are optional. Only the hotel crowds are missing and the planned daily activities of resorts.
Hotels could not provide you with a more personable service than our staff which includes a housekeeper, cook, gardener and security guard from dusk to dawn. The staff provides 24 hour service and security every day of the week. A household guide is available in all the rooms at the house and can be printed from the web site. It requires an Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Resorts and hotels have long lines or require reservations for meals at specified times. Not here. Breakfast at 11:00 AM, lunch at 4:00 PM or dinner up until 7:00PM , no problem. Our staff will prepare legendary Jamaican cuisine while you enjoy the comfort and security of a large private estate.
With its four bedroom and guest cottage, this villa/beachhouse will accommodate groups and families up to twelve for the vacation of a lifetime. There are two master bedrooms downstairs each with a four poster, full-size bed under a canopy of mosquito netting. Each bathroom opens onto an outdoor shower for rinsing off after swimming. Upstairs there are three twin beds and a king sized bed sharing one bathroom; if necessary, the king size bed can be broken down into two twin beds. There is a back staircase which can be used as a separate entrance especially after swimming. There are room safes in the main house and the cottage. We also have a child's daybed, crib and two playpens.
With its vaulted living room ceiling the villa will resonate on a stereo system transforming it into an instrument itself. We have recently installed a 37' flat panel HD TV with local cable service. Internet access (DSL and Wi-Fi) and fax will keep you connected to the world if that is your need. If you have Itunes on your laptop you will be able to connect to the stereo system through Airport Express, otherwise there is a cable connected to the amplifier to which you can connect a MP3 player.
Shaded by centuries old cotton trees (kapok), almond and sea grape trees, the broad expanse of the lawns and beaches makes an ideal setting for a wedding in Jamaica. The seawall which juts into the sea is flanked by two beaches. Dining on the seawall for any meal of the day could be habit forming. Hammocks are all about the property and reflect an age old tradition in the Caribbean.
The tennis court has recently been converted back to its original grass court surface. Please contact us if you want the availability of a tennis professional; we will do our best to contact one for you. We also have a ping pong table, horseshoes and a croquet set. There are also the traditional board games.
The Negril Hills Golf Club is just five minutes from the property by taxi.
There are hammocks and benches scattered throughout the property. The word hammock is an Arawak Indian word, so are the words tobacco, barbecue and canoe. What a life! Thank you, Tom Robbins in Even Cowgirls Get the Blues for that little bit of linguistic history.
Negril has been called the Reggae capital of the world with a different live show every night. All the venues are within short walking or driving distances. Some guests have even enjoyed the shows sitting on the sea wall around a bonfire listening to the music as it bounces off the water from venues a mile away! As a result of a strong lobbying effort, the shows are now required to end at 1:00 AM in respect for those who would rather listen to the waves and the more natural sounds of the night.
There are small patch reefs, coral gardens and caves surrounding the property along a thousand feet of sea front. We provide snorkeling gear at no extra cost to appreciate this marine world. Four sea kayaks which are available to the guests, also, at no extra cost. The kayaks can be rigged for one or two persons and carry an anchor and line for snorkeling either along the cliffs or out on Long Bay among the numerous patch reefs. Unfortunately, we no longer have a sailboat nor the windsurfers. The personal workout center is on the veranda overlooking the sea.
For the land lubber who is not so adventurous, there is a turtle pond with three loggerhead turtles to feed and pet. These were given by local fishermen to keep them out of someone else's stew pot.
Airport transfers and excursions are available.
