Caribbean, Jamaica - Bedrooms: 4, Bathrooms: 4
Located on a private waterfront acre, Sea Haven is a traditional West Indian cottage dressed in charming periwinkle blue. It sits directly on the edge of beautiful Discovery Bay. The living room is sunshine yellow with a vaulted ceiling painted to match the sky. Antiques include a 200-year-old rocker made of twigs. Tortoise-back mahogany dining chairs Circa 1780 are from Admiralty House in Port Royal and were used by Lords Rodney and Horatio Nelson. A rough-hewn 17th Century chair in the master bedroom belonged to the captain of a schooner that plied between the islands. A 19th Century lady's writing desk adorns another bedroom.
The living room opens wide to the 60' verandah ... furnished in wicker chaises, draped with flowering vines and overlooking the turquoise bay. On one side of the waterfront is a small sandy area. On the other side, cut-stone steps lead into wonderful swimming and snorkeling water. From the water's edge, it's an easy swim to the sunning platform. Watch romantic sunsets from the verandah or Jacuzzi plunge pool. After sunset, your chef will serve you delicious candlelight dinners on Spode china - inside, on the open-air verandah, or in the gazebo over a natural coral formation on the water's edge. During the day, a bird feeding tree dapples the gazebo and, in the afternoon, the pool. For all-day sunshine and blue, blue water... luxuriate in the buoyant bay which is Sea Haven's front yard.
The Sea Haven staff goes home each night. When guests have eaten dinner and are settled and comfortable for the evening, Alfred the butler drives the staff home in his little car, affording guests absolute privacy. Alfred always locks up part-way, leaves his telephone number with the keys and sets up morning coffee in the kitchen. He is only half a mile away and back on the job by 7:30 each morning.
Driving time from the Montego Bay airport to Sea Haven is approximately 60 minutes. Discovery Bay is an incredibly beautiful and placid body of water ... truly one of Jamaica's treasures. The eastern shore with its lovely villas and cottages is colloquially known as "The Riviera."
