Jamoon is a charming and private two-story home set on landscaped gardens in the established Sandy Lane Estate on the West Coast. Conveniently located a short distance to duty-free shopping, pristine beaches and an array of dining options, is the beautifully finished, 7-bed holiday villa.
From the main double doors, guests already feel welcome in the cool reception area with a fishtail palm tree as the centerpiece. On the left are a powder room and a pantry with party appeal - complete with wine cooler, mini fridge, storage for snacks and icemaker.
Just ahead is the open-plan living room - with dramatic, high ceilings accentuated by a skylight and a view of the large pool. This space designed with entertaining in mind, has plenty of comfortable seating areas, a grand, antique dining table accommodating up to 20 and even a baby grand piano. More comfortable seating and lounge chairs are found on the terrace with tranquil garden views as well as the pool deck.
Immediately outside of the well-equipped, Scandinavian-designed kitchen is casual outdoor dining set up on the wide, covered terrace – usually the spot for a leisurely breakfast or lunch prepared just how you want it. A full complement of guests can expect gourmet meals to grace the table utilizing choice local fare whipped up by the amazing in-house chef. You’ll be tempted to dine in the whole time!
The bedrooms spread throughout the home on both levels, have ceiling fans and air conditioning. Two master suites, one on each floor, both have en suites, walk-in closets and French doors leading to a private terrace. The other bedrooms come with dressing rooms and most have French doors opening onto a patio, the garden or pool deck. The guest wing known as ‘The Cottage’ to the left of the foyer, has its own access to the pool area and to the main gate. The 2 bedrooms here sharing an interconnected bathroom, is just the place for a family with small children.
To the left just off the living room over mini wooden bridges, is an inviting pool with deck and a water volleyball and badminton court (at the deep end) as well as floating loungers. Whimsical tropical paintings of flora and fauna on the exterior walls can be appreciated while drifting on an inflated chair in the pool. A cozy TV room for 8 (cable and DVD), equipped study, 2 iPod docks and wireless internet throughout the house offer options for play and remaining connected.
The eclectic mix of antiques with Caribbean flair adds to Jamoon’s relaxed warmth – sure to woo large families and groups.
