Overview of Bambu

Nine miles west of Montego Bay is a very private hill overlooking perhaps the most glorious view of sea and sky on Jamaica’s renowned north coast. Elegantly perched on seven acres atop this hill is Bambu, a grand seven-bedroom private villa distinguished by its classic architecture and appreciated by discerning vacationers.

Bambu was designed by architect Robert Hartley in the early 1960’s as a unique melding of West Indies architecture and Italian Venetian style. Its Palladian arches, dramatic central pool, Italian sculptures and breathtaking view make it one of the most photographed homes in this collection. In 1974, images of Bambu appeared in Aaron’s A Wonderful Time: An Intimate Portrait of the Good Life.

Multi-million dollar renovations of interiors and grounds have resulted in an impressive facelift of this elegant grand dame. Wireless Internet, Apple television, new marble bathrooms and a state-of-the-art kitchen complement lovely new interiors. Today its modern comforts and infrastructure mesh with Bambu’s original Euro charm and glamour.

As designer Charles Faudree wrote when it was featured on the cover of Veranda magazine, Bambu is the “….blending Old World elegance with New World comforts.” Its newest favorite folly is an outdoor garden bathroom, complete with shower, bathtub and lush landscaping.

Interior & Grounds

Bedrooms
Master Bedroom: 500 sq ft + 130 sq ft Dressing Room and Office: High kingsize four-poster bed. Two separate Travertine marble his 'n' hers bathrooms feature double showerheads in each. From the bedroom, French doors open to a 26' covered verandah with a breathtaking view of the sea and the distant town of Montego Bay. The Master Suite is quite private from the rest of the villa. Both showers are handicap accessible.

Bedroom 2: High kingsize bed. Travertine marble en-suite bathroom with double sinks and spacious walk-in shower. French doors open directly onto south poolside terrace. Bedroom 2 can be considered the second Master.
Bedroom 3 Children's Room: Two pairs of bunk beds, pink and white and very cute. The single door can remain bolted and locked to prevent unsupervised access to the pool terrace. A pass-through in the children's bathroom leads to Bedroom 4 next door, creating a connecting parent-child suite.
Bedroom 4: Kingsize bed. En-suite Travertine marble bathroom connects to Children's Bedroom 3.
Bedrooms 5 and 6: Two full/double beds in each. En-suite bathrooms are Travertine marble and have spacious walk-in shower.
Bedroom 7 The Hideaway: Queen bed and small bathroom in private hideaway tucked into the loower hillside and overlooking a gorgeous prospect of the blue sea and the distant town of Montego Bay and its romantic nighttime twinkling lights. This room's special folly is its outdoor stone shower and bathtub under an ackee tree.
