ONE NIGHT FREE! DIVINE SWIMMING, POOL, PERFECT STAFF

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Discovery Bay - Villa Sea Haven

Four Air Conditioned Bedrooms With Baths Ensuite, Pool, 70 Foot Verandah

Located on a private waterfront acre, Sea Haven is a traditional West Indian house dressed in a miracle of colour. Periwinkle blue exterior, sunshine yellow inside, with a barrel vaulted blue sky ceiling and yet more sea to view on a trompe l’oeil wall. Antiques include a 200 year old twig rocker made by slaves, and tortoise-back mahogany dining chairs which came from Admiralty House in Port Royal and were used by Admiral Lord Rodney, and Lord Horatio Nelson when he was an ensign. Four comfortable air conditioned bedrooms with baths en suite. Free high speed wireless internet. The living room opens wide to the 60' foot verandah, which is a feast of pickled wicker, draping vines, and more colour. Barbecue, hammock, gazebo, kayaks, snorkeling gear. The best cook on the 'strip'!

A bird 'feeding tree' frames the view and dapples the gazebo, and in the afternoon, the plunge pool. On one side of the waterfront is a built-up sandy area, and on the other cut-stone steps lead you to perfect snorkeling and the off shore raft. The butler is the chef and will serve you in the dining room, on the verandah, or 'al fresco' by sunlight or by candlelight, according to your whim. Pluck a naseberry, sweetsop, Mugulba mango or Julie from a tree and surrender to the pink warm glow of the sunset across the azure bay.

Less than an hour from montego bay's airport, discovery bay is absolutely unique, an incredibly clear, blue, beautiful and placid body of water, a perfect sheltered horseshoe bay, one mile across, protected by coral reefs.

This “strip” of houses on the eastern shore is colloquially known as both “millionaire’s row” and 'Jamaica’s riviera'. It is now the villa destination of choice in Jamaica and although many owners try to take advantage of our popularity by listing nearby (or distant) homes, there is only one Fortlands road, only ONE Discovery Bay.

Born in jamaica to english parents, i have been going to discovery bay since i was about twelve years old and longed for a house there of my very own. Twenty-seven years ago i found my dream spot! This beautiful place has seen my children grow up and been my joy and comfort through every one of life's ups and downs.

Erica Downer or Anne Fulton purchased this villa in 1985

Although this house was not huge, it had about an acre of private garden, wonderful swimming and I could see it's potential. Lacking the capital for a grand build I needed to find a place that could be slowly enlarged and improved, and this was it!

I fell in love with the music of the murmuring water, turqoise through the bird feeding tree, surrounded by friends' homes so with proximity yet privacy. Being the most elevated of all the houses along the 'strip' it also gathered whatever cooling breezes blew, and I also found Alfred Miller, who has been my butler, support and friend through 30 years. Alfred has finally retired, and has passed on all his skills to dear Elva who, with 25 years' service, is now our mainstay.

Amazing Stay

Our group of seven had six days of perfect relaxation, beautiful views, and the best food imaginable. The staff was wonderful, the meals delicious and we were able to sample all the local dishes. The bedrooms were spacious, air conditioned and provided the perfect nights sleep. Waking up to overlook the waters was one of the best experiences. The house is spacious, living room great for hanging out at night. We loved the huge wrap around veranda for the meals. The driver, Naval, met us at the airport and was available to some day trips we planned. The house staff were friendly, loved to explain their local customs and provided everything we needed. We loved that the fisherman would row to the house at the end of the day with their catches, red snapper channel crabs and lobsters! I would highly recommend Sea Haven for a perfect vacation spot. Thank you Erica.

Discovery Bay is a fishing village of about 4,000 of the kindest, friendliest people imaginable. It is about 40 minutes from Montego Bay and about 30 minutes from Ocho Rios which are the tourism capitals of Jamaica and there are a huge range of many activities and facilities, from swimming with dolphins, canopy rides, mountain biking, dog sledding, to groceries, banks, duty free shopping, art galleries, restaurants and night spots. Here is every imaginable convenience and recreational activity. I have done many of the activities and tried most of the restaurants and will be very happy to make recommendations!
