Bumper's Nest encapsulates all that is synonymous with elegant Caribbean living with its lavish master cottage, handsome interiors and stunning views. Many families have an enduring love affair with Bumper's Nest, returning year-after-year and enjoying it as their home away from home.
From a three acre garden, at the peak of Mahogany Hill, Bumper's Nest takes full advantage of views of the Caribbean Sea, Tryall forests and the 14th hole of the legendary Tryall Golf Club. It has been meticulously designed to maximize the natural light, air flow and magnificent views.
Originally a Spanish architecturally designed villa, it received very contemporary renovations, which include a 50 foot infinity pool set in a 100 foot pool deck, marble en suites and a 12 person Jacuzzi.
Two bedrooms are in the detached, luxury master cottage which also has a gym and the Jacuzzi. The master bedroom has a white muslin draped king size bed and the guest room has two queen beds. Each has a large 400 square foot en suite bathroom with marble showers and ultra-modern finishes. Both bedrooms enjoy a private terrace with unobstructed views of the green hills and perfect blues of the Caribbean Sea.
Four bedrooms are in the split level main house, each with beautiful private en suite bathrooms and private terraces - two with views of the ocean, two for snuggling up with a good book. Three are fitted with king beds, and the fourth has two queen beds.
This villa provides a number of free-flowing living spaces, from a large television room with inviting sofas, to the covered outdoor living room flowing with natural light, to the nearly 100 foot pool deck from which you can watch your butler, Wayne, make your favorite drink at the outdoor bar. A fire pit on the lawn is a magical gathering spot to enjoy cocktails and conversation under the evening sky.
Meals prepared by your expert Cook, Rhona, using herbs from the villa's own organic garden, may be enjoyed in the indoor or outdoor dining room, each with a capacity for 12 persons, or alfresco on the pool deck. After lunch, be nice and let someone else use the hammock under the cool almond tree, for a change.
The Tryall Club Membership
A significant amenity for guests in this villa is membership at the excellent Tryall Club. On 2 200 acres, Tryall's golf course is among the most beautiful in the world.
