4 Bedroom Great House Plantation Style Jamaica home located in a prestigious area in Montego Bay - Luxurious plantation living.
The Jamaica Mansion, a modern day Jamaican Great House, is an ideal choice for a vacation villa rental in the Montego Bay area.
Set on 5 acres and elevated 150' above the Caribbean Sea, the Jamaica Mansion offers beautiful views of the sea to the north and the mountainous interior to the south. Located in Rose Hall, 8km east of Montego Bay's international airport (MBJ), the Jamaica Mansion is ideally situated to take advantage of the numerous golf courses, beaches, hill walks and attractions of Montego Bay and Jamaica's North Coast.
The Jamaica Mansion consists of 5 acres of land on which is set the Great House, the Guest House, the Staff Quarters, the Pool and Pool House.
The Great House is situated to offer the most spectacular views of the sea, and also to enjoy the cool breezes that descend from the mountains in the evening. The 5 acres surrounding the house include the orchards with a collection of citrus and other Jamaican fruits - depending on the season, from our gardens you can pick fresh oranges, grapefruits, limes, ackee, breadfruit, avocados, mangos, custard apples and noni. Not to be outdone by the fruit, there is a plethora of flowering plants to enjoy outdoors as well as to cut and bring indoors.
The Great House
The Great House is two stories tall. The main floor consists of the entrance foyer with a soaring 30' ceiling and sweeping staircase leading up to the second floor. To the east is the Living Room, 24' by 40', where you'll find seating for 12 and a card table for 4. The television with cable is located in this space. The 14' ceilings float above, and with windows to the south, facing the mountains, and the north, facing the seas, the views and breeze are sublime. Through the foyer is the formal Dining Room with seating for 12 at 2 tables.
There are 5 double French doors which open onto the porches towards the sea to allow the breeze through. To the west is the less formal Outdoor Dining Room, the location where most guests chose to eat their meals. This informal space allows you to look out to sea and enjoy the colors of the Caribbean, or, at night, the passing lights of cruise ships.
To the east of the formal Dining Room and north of the Living Room, you will find the Sitting Porch, 16 by 40, where again the family and most guests will spend their social time. With seating for 9, this is an area in which to relax, read a book, gaze out to sea and have evening cocktails. The Kitchen is found beyond the dining rooms, and the Staff Quarters are located beyond the western side of the house.
Upstairs bedroom: 2 Double beds and views to the ocean
Up the stairway, you will find 2 bedrooms and the sun porch. Each bedroom in the Great House occupies approximately 24' by 40' and each has attached bathrooms. The East Bedroom consists of one king size bed (a beautiful antique Jamaican bed that sits a little high - there is a step stool to help step up to the bed), one double bed, a sitting area (consisting of one couch and two armchairs) along with dressers and desk.
There is over 20' of closet space, a double vanity along with tub and toilet. The West Bedroom holds 2 double beds, several armchairs and about 15' of closet. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower in place of a tub. Both bedrooms offer views south to Flower Hill and north over the Caribbean Sea.
Bedroom 2 - Upstairs with queen bed, large sitting area
Bedroom 3 - downstairs with 2 queen beds, opening up to grassy pathway leading to swimming pool.
Bedroom 4: Queen bed with ocean views and french doors opening up to the garden and swimming pool
The bedrooms are air conditioned, each bedroom with its own controls, but the nightly prevailing breezes blow through the rooms and keep the bedrooms comfortably cool for sleeping. In the morning you will likely awake to the sounds of green parrots and doves.
Step through the French doors at the top of the stairs and you will find yourself on the sun porch which runs the length of the house, about 16' by 80', and affords a terrific view of the sea. Beautiful in the early morning or late in the day, it is an ideal spot to stretch, meditate and quietly enjoy the view and surroundings.
The Guest House
The guest house sits to the east of the great house and is accessed through the Living Room via a breezeway.
There are 2 bedrooms in the Guest House. The North Bedroom is furnished with a king size bed, which is hard to leave in the morning as there is a large bay window offering views of the Caribbean while lying in bed. Also, there are double French doors leading out toward the Pool House. The South Bedroom contains 2 double beds and also has French doors leading to the Pool House. There is one bathroom in the guest wing for the guests of both the North and South Bedrooms.
Pool and Pool House
The oval-shaped pool is approximately 20' by 40' and, due to the slope in the yard, elevated at one end - offering exposure to wonderful breezes and views down over the Half Moon Golf Course. The Pool House sits to the south of the pool and is a shaded area that is an ideal location for lunch or afternoon snacks.
The staff consists of a cook, the housekeeper and two grounds persons. Work with the cook to coordinate meals and any special dietary needs or concerns. The staff can accompany you on shopping trips to the nearby stores and markets. The housekeeper will take care of the cleaning of the living space and will also take care of any laundry needs you may have.
