Property description

With three of our children and grandchildren living in the US, and all of us getting together every Christmas staying in some of the nicest villas in Jamaica, Judy and I in 2010, decided to build a real family holiday house.
So, the design was for a very airy, family-friendly, elegant retreat. Our verandah and outdoor furniture are covered in sunbrella fabric. We have a large beach-entry swimming pool and perhaps the most attractive feature is our own private beach cove.
There are two water front sitting areas, a dock area: and a gazebo area, as well as furniture on the beach.
Bruce, our water sports assistant is extremely helpful with our water sports equipment and activities, which include jet skis, fishing boat, kayaks and paddle boards, snorkeling equipment and deep sea diving can be arranged with the Sandals Hotel and Spa across the bay.
We also have table tennis, a lawn for croquet and ball games such as the famous Jamaican cricket, soccer or even football, there is also gym equipment available.
There are great sitting and dining areas and an air-conditioned dining room that can seat 16.
Four bedrooms are on the 2nd level of the house with large folding doors that open onto a verandah with a 90 degree view overlooking the beautiful Caribbean. One bedroom is on the ground floor looking onto a beautiful garden area and is equipped for wheelchair access for the bathroom. There is an annex with a beautiful king size bedroom and bathroom and a children's room with two sets of double bunks and its own bathroom.
It is hard to leave Rivendell once there but the children try each year to visit two wonderful attractions: The lovely “YS Falls” and the “Black River Safari” both are within a half hour drive.
Judy will work along with guest to fix menus and stocking of the house, with a staff of 7, we are sure that any family that chooses to be with us will have one of their best holiday experiences.

Owner info

About the owner: Judy and myself have 8 children (including in-laws), and 14 grand children. We have stayed at the best villas in Jamaica and in 2010 we built Rivendell on the south coast in the same quiet bay as the famous Sandals Whitehouse Resort and Spa.

Why the Owner Chose Whitehouse:
After years of renting many vacation properties in Jamaica we decided it was time to own our own. We chose this location in Jamaica because of its natural beauty and undeveloped serenity. It is also a part of the island where the weather is lovely and the sunsets amazing

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Rivendell has every thing a vacation by the sea has to offer: a beautiful private beach, boating, snorkelling, deep sea diving and spa treatments at Sandals.
