Living Room and Dining Room
The living and dining rooms comprise one large room. The dining room has a dining table that seats six. All the furniture is antique and locally made. There is a glassware cabinet with a supply of wine glasses and dessert bowls. There are kerosene lamps and candles for ambiance and in case of power outages. The living room is furnished with rattan furniture, standing lamps and a standing floor fan. The entertainment center has a 40″ Samsung smart TV with access to your NetFlix, Disney, Amazon Prime and YouTube accounts as well as a choice of 191 channels of cable TV. The stereo amplifier is Blue-tooth ready and is connected to the cable network for music streaming on Stingray Music.
The living room opens up onto a 50′ long veranda that is facing the sea and just steps from the largest of the two beaches. It has a teak dining set with a table that can seat 12. There is a settee with a large couch and two chairs and ottomans at the opposite end of the veranda. A bar and an ice chest are located between the dining area and the seating area. A standing fan is also stationed midway. There is a limited array of exercise equipment with free weights and elastic tubing, along with two Bosu balls and on-demand padded decking. A wall-mounted monitor is connected to a DVD player that is available along with instructional DVDs. A Pilates reformer can be set up on request. A smaller porch is located on the eastern exposure of the living room with a porch swing.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a six-burner restaurant oven and range. A full set of stainless steel Calphalon pots and pans along with cast iron frying pans and a wok provides our staff with an excellent choice of equipment. There is a 27 cubic foot refrigerator, microwave, a Cuisinart food processor and coffee/spice grinder, four slice toaster, blender and a commercial-grade orange juicer. Coffee lovers will find one and two-cup Italian stovetop espresso coffee makers, a Bodum French press, a DeLonghi espresso machine and a Mr. Coffee coffee maker. We have recently installed a reverse osmosis water filtration system and the water can be carbonated with a CO2 dispenser similar to Soda Stream. The laundry facilities are restricted to the staff for the linens and towels but they can do personal laundry for a nominal fee.
Located on the ground level of the main house both bedrooms have their own private full bathrooms, each with a door opening to a shared outdoor shower for rinsing off after coming from the beach. Both master bedrooms have four-poster beds. The Seaside Master bedroom opens directly onto the 50-foot veranda and the louvered windows provide views and sounds of the Caribbean Sea and one of the two private beaches.
The upstairs bedrooms are en suite that share a bathroom overlooking the sea.
The largest partition has a king sized bed and has a private entrance down a staircase leading to the lawn and beach.
The center partition has a nook with a twin bed and a staircase leading down to the dining room and living area below. On the eastern side of the second level is a third partition that has two twin beds overlooking the tennis court and Seven-Mile Beach.
The staircase has gates at the top and bottom to prevent access by small children.
A cottage is immediately adjacent to the main house and serves as a 5th bedroom. It has its own bathroom with a sunken shower and its own patio that is facing the beach. It has a Queen size bed, wardrobe and hotel safe.
Since there are no screens on the house except for the kitchen and cottage, all the beds except for the one in the cottage have mosquito nettings that are artfully supported by tent poles that contribute to an authentic tropical setting.
Plantation louvered window blinds of Negril’s original beach house ensure that the ceiling fans will keep a comfortable, bi-directional flow of air from the inside/out. The nearly constant sea breezes are the best antidote to power-hungry air conditioners making this one of the most eco-friendly environments in this rapidly changing world.
There are hotel wall safes in the two master bedrooms and larger safes in the entertainment center and in the upstairs alcove area.
The beach house villa is surrounded by two acres of beach, lawn and rocky promontories that mark the beginning of the West End. Boasting of some of the oldest cotton trees on the island which may be more than 300 years old, and sea grape trees of equal vintage, there is ample shade from the Caribbean sun. There are Adirondack chairs, chaise lounges and hammocks to idle away the hours.
The red-clay tennis court was installed in 2017 after the original grass court was deemed unplayable. It is groomed frequently and is in top competitive shape.
Two “pocket beaches” flank the tennis court, the larger of which is about 250′ long and the shorter is about 50′. Both have shallow sandy bottoms. There is a boat landing from which the kayaks and paddle boards can be launched. Reefs are located immediately offshore. All in all, the sea frontage measures about 1000′ feet.
