Nine miles west of Montego Bay is a very private hill overlooking perhaps the most glorious view of sea and sky on Jamaica’s renowned north coast. Elegantly perched on seven acres atop this hill is Bambu, a grand seven-bedroom private villa distinguished by its classic architecture and appreciated by discerning vacationers.
Bambu was designed by architect Robert Hartley in the early 1960’s as a unique melding of West Indies architecture and Italian Venetian style. Its Palladian arches, dramatic central pool, Italian sculptures and breathtaking view make it one of the most photographed homes in this collection. In 1974, images of Bambu appeared in Aaron’s A Wonderful Time: An Intimate Portrait of the Good Life.
Multi-million dollar renovations of interiors and grounds have resulted in an impressive facelift of this elegant grand dame. Wireless Internet, Apple television, new marble bathrooms and a state-of-the-art kitchen complement lovely new interiors. Today its modern comforts and infrastructure mesh with Bambu’s original Euro charm and glamour.
As designer Charles Faudree wrote when it was featured on the cover of Veranda magazine, Bambu is the “….blending Old World elegance with New World comforts.” Its newest favorite folly is an outdoor garden bathroom, complete with shower, bathtub and lush landscaping. /n Security deposit /n $1,000 to be paid upon arrival /n Arrival time /n 4.00 p.m. /n Departure time /n 11.00 p.m. /n Energy costs included? /n Included in the rental price /n Linen & towels included? /n Included in the rental price /n End of stay cleaning included? /n Included in the rental price /n Tax /n Taxes & Fees of 10% must be applied to the villa rental rate, due to General Government Consumption Tax /n Minimum stay /n 5 nights between 28/04 - 22/11 & 01/12 - 14/12, otherwise 7 nights /n Changeover day /n Flexible /n Internet access? /n Wi-Fi connection included /n Pets welcome? /n Pets are allowed upon request /n Smoking Allowed? /n Not permitted inside the villa /n Insurance /n It is recommended that all guests take out insurance to cover against potential cancellation and any accidental damage caused during your stay at the property. /n Other Ts and Cs /n Temporary Tryall Club Membership Fee of US$26 per person per day plus a 15% service charge for any guest 16 years and older will be required.
