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.
