Flortlands Point, Jamaica villa -This is a most stunning and newly built property located at the peninsula of Discovery Bay.
Fortlands Point on the beach is a fabulous seven-bedroom villa set on three acres of stunning Caribbean peninsula. The Jamaica villa sits on the tip of the peninsula, which was once the site of an old stone fort, providing picturesque views of Discovery Bay and the sparkling Caribbean Sea from its fantastic location. Fortlands Point on the Beach was named ‘one of the best villas in the world' by Islands Magazine in its August 2010 issue. The dramatic architecture of the premier villa is complemented by the cedar, teak, Persian rugs and Italian tiles.
The two-acre gardens surrounding Fortlands Point are beautifully landscaped with exotic greens and trees. Further enhancing the ambience of the lawns are the seven ancient cannons placed all across the grounds. An indoor glass-backed squash court is located across the garden. Adjacent to that is a mirrored fitness center that includes an elliptical cycle and a universal weight machine. Guests can enjoy their physical activities in a breezy area with a fabulous view of the ocean. Hammocks are placed near the ocean, an excellent spot for relaxing and enjoying the serene environment.
The family room is quite spacious with comfortable seating, surround sound big-screen television, DSS television system, DVD player and a library of movies. The connected balcony provides fabulous ocean views. The villa provides wireless Internet, computer and fax.
The verandah is designed for comfort and a relaxing environment. Furnished with cable television, icemaker and black granite bar. It is definitely the perfect spot for sunset cocktails and late nights with the starlit sky.
Meals can be served at any of the five open-air dining areas or in the formal dining room inside Fortlands Point. The 100 year old mahogany heirloom dining table is a masterpiece that seats up to twelve persons and is perfect for formal dinner parties. For a special treat, dinner can be served on the point with a seaside bonfire as the guests' request.
Being among the few villa rentals in Jamaica designed for large families and groups, the seven bedrooms have been deliberately placed on individual split levels. All bedrooms open to the wide stone terrace, hot tub and the expansive swimming pool. A few steps further lead to the lawn and then the main beach. Guests at the villa fall asleep to the rhythmic sounds of the ocean waves gently beating against the corals and the beach.
The Baron's room is the master bedroom furnished with a king-sized bed, day bed, television and en-suite bathroom. French doors lead to the furnished terrace and the beautiful lawn. The room offers a divine view of the sea. The other rooms include the East View bedroom, the Queen room, boys' room, captain's room, large loft room and the girls' bedroom.
