Bambu is elegantly perched atop a lush hill of eight and a half acres surrounded by natural vegetation, nine miles west of Montego Bay. This grand six-bedroom private villa commands one of the most magnificent views of the sky and sea across Jamaica's North Coast and its classic architecture which distinguishes it and is 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 Jamaica's best villas. In 1974, images of Bambu appeared in Slim Aaron’s A Wonderful Time: An Intimate Portrait of the Good Life.
A separate entrance has been thoughtfully designed for guests using wheelchairs and features a ramp to a level entrance to the villa. The Bambu pool features a broad 4" deep wheelchair platform as well. This shallow water platform is also a perfect, safe pool area for toddlers.
A wide variety of dining areas take advantage of the spaciousness and vast views from this special property. Breakfast at the river is a marvelous way to start the day. Cocktails on the terrace over the bay and dinner in the gazebo feature one of the most beautiful nighttime light shows in the world. Guests are sure to enjoy fiery lightning which is affectionately called 'Cuban Dancers' by some.
Multi-million dollar renovations of interiors and grounds have resulted in an impressive facelift of this elegant grande 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 amusement is an open-air garden shower and bathtub outside a small hideaway bedroom downhill from the main house, with a nine-mile view across Montego Bay.
Bambu's tasteful grounds are headed by talented Sam. The gardeners have created and maintained a lush and lavish tropical paradise, with natural stone pathways that wind through gardens to unexpected terraces for private quiet times.
If you have left your pets at home for this holiday, Bambu is home to three affectionate Mastiff pups. At your preference they may be allowed to roam the grounds and come in to play or could be kept in their large open-air kennel.
The oversized master bedroom, 500 sq ft + 130 sq ft dressing room and office, features a high king size four-poster bed with two separate travertine marble his 'n' hers bathrooms offering double showerheads in each. From the bedroom, French doors open to a 26' covered verandah with a breathtaking view of the sea and the distant town of Montego Bay. The master suite is quite private from the rest of the villa. Both showers are wheelchair accessible.
The second bedroom is considered as a second master also with a high king size bed and travertine marble en-suite bathroom with double sinks and spacious walk-in shower. French doors open directly onto the south poolside terrace.
The children's room has two pairs of bunk beds, pink and white and very cute. The single door can remain bolted and locked to prevent unsupervised access to the pool terrace. A pass-through in the children's bathroom leads to bedroom four next door, creating a connecting parent-child suite if desired.
Bambu's fourth bedroom has a king size bed and en-suite travertine marble bathroom, connecting to the children's bedroom.
Two full/double beds are found in each of the fifth and sixth bedrooms and have en-suite bathrooms, travertine marble and spacious walk-in showers.
Please note: This villa has access to Tryall Club Golf, Tennis & Beach Club
