Treasure Beach villa description

Dramatic villa with 3,000 square feet of living space. Seafront/Beach location with an excellent staff set upon 2.5 acres of natural fields of Mango, Grapefruit, Papaya and Sweet Sop trees. Seafront Terrace and Pool with spectacular panoramic views. Set unseen on a private lane off the country road sits La Casa Duna. Your viewpoint here stretches far into the distance down the coast of Treasure Beach and it´s small beaches and rock pools to Great Pedro Bluff.
High open beamed ceilings throughout offer great indoor/outdoor living. Spacious Living and Dining rooms open through polished French doors to the expansive terraces, pool and Caribbean beyond. Large seafront Master Bedroom with King size bed and en suite bath/shower. Two Garden side Bedrooms ( one with queen size bed, one with twins ) share a large bathroom/shower. Additional beds and Pack N Play available. Babysitting services available.
Set on a seafront bluff, air conditioning is superfluous. Ceiling fans throughout with louvered and screened windows.
Greeting room with small library, games, TV/DVD (BYO DVD), portable music player , Wireless speaker stations: iPHONE, iPAD, iPOD touch, Android and Blackberry compatable. Fully equipped spacious kitchen. Wonderful traditional Jamaican Cuisine. Outdoor grilling area with seating.
Caretaker quarters are set unobtrusively off the entryway to the house.
Down the stairs to the new reef protected private beach which is yours. Turn left and follow a short walkway two minutes along the waters edge to a spectacular beach and swimming hole.
Amazing day trips easily arranged. Go up the Black River to see the Crocs, Birds and amazing wildlife of the Great Morass, visit beautiful YS Falls, Floyd´s Pelican Bar atop the reef, the Appleton Rum Estate, Sunny Island and great snorkeling and fishing trips are just a few possibilities.
No cars, no road noise, no higglers, no tourist throngs--nothing but the sound of the Sea and the sight of a beach where the first footprints of the day are yours.
La Casa Duna is fully staffed. Miss Bev and her daughter Pheona will see to all of your needs in the house and work closely with you on your meal planning. Two amazing people and cooks. Len Parchment ( Bev´s Brother ) cares for the property and is the man to talk to about all things outside the house and any trips you may wish to take. An excellent Grillmaster.

                      Located on the edge of the small village of Billy's Bay in Treasure Beach on the Southwest coast of Jamaica. Visit beautiful YS Falls in the Jamaican jungle, tour the Black River and see the Crocodiles, snorkel off Sunny Island, watch the fisherman bring in the catch of the day, tour the Appleton Estate Rum Factory, grab a Red Stripe at Floyd's famed Pelican Bar atop the reef, go bird watching, jam with local musicians,walk the many beaches and coves or hike in the hills just above the house. So much to do and nothing to do if you want. Most importantly, take the opportunity to walk the local villages and meet the wonderful people of this part of Jamaica.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1982

                      Why the Owner Chose Treasure Beach:
                      I first travelled to Treasure Beach for the Christmas with my parents on what was truly an adventure.We stayed at another house for three Christmas´ and fell in love with the area, the location, the Sea, the pace of life, the food and of course the people. Many of whom I have grown up with and are dear friends. There was this empty house for sale at the end of the beach on top of the bluff and the rest is the amazing journey.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Bev, Len and Pheona ( Staff ). Total privacy. The view from the front Terrace up the coast to Great Pedro Bluff. The amazing swimming beach just below. Snorkelling in front of the house. The sound of the Sea. The gentle breeze through the house. The Garden side in the morning with the Hummingbirds and Lizards. The Food.........The Food........The Food
