Fortlands Point

Discovery Bay, Jamaica

Named "one of the best villas in the world" by Islands magazine August 2010
Once the site of an old stone fort, sits a remarkable new home named Fortlands Point. From its breathtaking location on the tip of the peninsula, the commanding view encompasses the turquoise water of Discovery Bay on one side and the deep blue Caribbean Sea on the other. The views are simply magnificent. The clear buoyant water and adjacent reefs are a paradise for snorkelers and divers. Just a few feet from the point, the protected reefs are a colorful coral world of Jackfish, Parrot Fish, Wrass and Sergeant Majors. The stereophonic sound of waves lapping the coral and beaches lulls guests to sleep each night.

Textures of teak, cedar, Italian tile and Persian rugs complement the dramatic architecture. With families in mind, seven bedrooms (including two specifically for children) have been thoughtfully designed on individual split levels in this Jamaican villa. The comfortable veranda in this Caribbean rental is complete with black granite bar, ice-maker and television. Sunset cocktail hours here drift into leisurely long dinners under the stars on any of five open-air dining areas. Inside is the formal dining room with 100-year-old 12' mahogany heirloom table. As a special treat, the staff will serve dinner on the very point itself, followed by a seaside bonfire if you wish. Evenings to treasure and remember will be found in this Jamaican villa.

Seven old cannons dot the two-acre grounds. Across the lawn is the indoor glass-backed squash court. The adjacent mirrored fitness room includes a universal weight machine and elliptical cycle in a breezy space with a wonderful view of the sea.

Child friendly, Fortlands Point offers two complimentary portacribs, one high chair and games for children (and adults too). The DSS satellite television system includes Disney and and other children's programming. In the yard are two swings, one set of rings, a slide and a mini-tree house.

If you`ve left your own pets at home, you`ll be happy to see two playful German Shepherds romping on the lawn. They love children.
