This luxury five bedroom villa, surrounded by bright tropical gardens on the beautiful Sandy Bay at Ocho Rios, is aptly named. It’s previous owner was a Scottish Lord and it sits on the rocks above the Caribbean Sea, reflected in its turquoise painted exterior. In the 1980s the villa was bought by the Jamaican family famed for founding Red Stripe Beer, who still own it to this day.
Supreme privacy, light and airy interiors accented with Jamaican mahogany, travertine tile floors, intricate fretwork and Caribbean art, create a homely, laid back vibe that make ‘Scotchie’, as the villa is affectionately called, ideal for relaxed family getaways.
Service is exceptional, with a a full staff including a cook, waiter, butler and housekeeper on hand to provide a paradise of pampering. Talented chefs create a bespoke menu based on your personal tastes and served on a stunning dining patio. Enjoy delectable dishes like lobster thermidor and pork in black beans; crab backs and a jerked chicken pasta with a salad of romaine lettuce, apricots and sun dried tomatoes, followed by chocolate black satin pie with pecan crusts or rum cake and whipped cream.
Nestled between the villa's two verandas is a fresh water swimming pool and a short walk from the pool deck takes you to the private wooden pier and gazebo where you can watch the sunset. Beside the pier is a shallow, sandy alcove that gives easy access to the calm clear sea. Protected by a reef, the bay is perfect for snorkelling.
Explore the nearby limestone caves with underwater springs, take a short boat ride with a local fisherman to world famous Dunn's River Falls, or just bask in a hidden hammock in a ‘chill out spot’ in the newly landscaped garden and drink in the scents of vibrant Vanda orchids and purple Thumbergia flowers.
