Description of Villa
in Montego Bay:
Wharf House is a very comfortable home with waterfront location. It truly reflects the colourful history of Jamaica, with thick stone walls with gun slots, for soldiers who originally defended the wharf and its sugar trade from the Caribbean pirates. This 18th Century location, provides a small compound of five buildings which are connected by wonderful walkways, along landscaped gardens. Special to this property are two very old cotton trees which could share many stories of the past.
This Home has preserved a piece of history, and today has been turned into to the most beautiful and contemporary home, with all the charm and comfort to be enjoyed by its visitors. The old charm and rustic qualities are definitely returned and unique to this property.
The interiors of the Main House have been lovingly decorated to reflect the tropical casualness of the home. The owner of this house has a collection of Caribbean art and is displayed throughout the rooms. There is a wonderful mahogany dining table, large and stately, which features antique Chippendale chairs. The floors are or rich mahogany, stone and brick. Many features are reminders of past centuries.
The main house has 2 air conditioned bedrooms. The other cottage in another building gives privacy for another two air conditioned bedrooms. Across the lawn, another cottage has a play room with comfortable sofas, chairs and tennis/ping pong table. Very family and children friendly here.
This part of the bay which Wharf House backs onto, is an environmentally protected Marine Water Park. The scenes from here are spectacular. There is a lovely large wooden deck not far from the main house. Children love to feed the fish from here. The deck also serves as a wonderful place to have casual meals. The views at night are special, twinkling lights from Montego Bay, and the beautiful lights of the Cruise ships which cruise into port.
This villa is located less than ten miles from Montego Bay. It is located minutes drive away from beaches, more than a few world class golf courses, and tennis facilities, restaurants, water sports and craft markets.
