JM252 is part of a singular retreat for a long list of international dignitaries, and much of the "old money" crowd has made this 2,200-
acre gated community their winter residence. Located 12 miles outside
of Montego Bay (30 minutes from Sangster International Airport), this
very special private club was originally built as a sugar plantation and
later transformed into a coconut farm. It was also the site of a coastal
fort constructed by the English for protection against Spanish or French invaders and pirates. There is evidence that the Arawak Indians - the
true natives of the Caribbean - once occupied the very land on which this exclusive resort is set.
In 1957, a group of Texans purchased the tropical estate, which is currently comprised of a 162 year-old Georgian-style Great House, 56 privately-owned villas, 13 Great House Villas and an 18-hole Par-71 Championship golf course that has been the venue for some of the most notable tournaments (e.g. Johnny Walker) in the world.
Swim and snorkel (there's a reef just offshore) in the calm, shallow, azure sea just steps from this charming oceanfront villa, which boasts a small sandy beach just a stone's throw away. JM252 is a sought-after private home due to its prime location and casual, comfortable flair. Designed with families in mind, the villa has a separate cottage which is ideal for the grandparents or an au pair traveling with the family.
The relaxing laid-back atmosphere is just perfect for such a desirable location. The easy flow from indoors to out is achieved with large picture windows and airy rooms that make the most of its idyllic setting. The golf course and clubhouse are just moments away, and the main private beach and watersports facility are only a short stroll from the villa.
JM252 has a very private feel to it ... you enter the accommodation via an arched stone doorway into a courtyard appointed with tropical plants and on to the house. In front of you lies the ocean, a very spacious veranda and a lovely lawn beckoning children to play. In the main house, the living room features cable television and a stereo system and is furnished with classic Jamaican wicker furniture. There is a separate dining area as well as a bar.
Outside on the covered verandah is a large dining terrace that faces the sea. With plenty of space, this is a wonderful place to relax as well as enjoy your morning coffee, afternoon libation or dinner prepared by the cook while enjoying the twinkling lights of Montego Bay. Manicured lawns and a private swimming pool with a panorama of the beach and Caribbean Sea make this villa an excellent choice for those who must be at the water's edge.
JM252 will accommodate eight guests in four air-conditioned bedrooms (one king, one queen and four twin beds). Three of the bedrooms are in the main house (one king bed and the other two bedrooms, which are of an unusual shape, have twin beds). The fourth bedroom (queen-size bed) is located in the cottage.
While essentially private and self-contained, JM252 is only a few minutes walk or golf cart ride (cart is included the rental of the villa) from the property's Great House (for afternoon tea), golf and tennis pro shops, bar and restaurant, shops, beach club, dive shop and nighttime entertainment. There is a Kiddies’ Club, Internet room and Fitness room at the resort.
JM252 is rented with the services of a household staff of cook, housekeeper, laundress and gardener.
The duty-free shops of Freeport (where the cruise ships dock) are just 15 minutes away. Tours of the rum factory, sunset sails, or a train trip to the interior can be arranged. A white sandy beach is just down the hill from the villa, with the famed Seven Mile Beach of Negril just an hour’s drive to the west. Ocho Rios, home to Dunn’s River Falls, is 90 minutes to the west. River rafting by torchlight, native floorshows, visits to the Anchovy bird sanctuary or a furniture factory up a nearby mountain (where you can order excellent quality cedar and mahogany period reproductions) also involve minimal driving.
