Scotch on the Rocks is a charming turquoise villa that sits on a small rise overlooking Sandy Bay in Ocho Rios. This oceanfront, 4+ bedroom, 5 bathroom villa is nestled in a lush tropical, orchid filled, gardens overlooking the sea. It is ideally located in a privately-nestled cove between two of Jamaica’s most prestigious hotels: Sandals Royal Plantation and Jamaica Inn. While completely private, Scotch on the Rocks is just minutes from lively Ocho Rios.
Scotchie, as it is affectionately called, was originally built by the late Scottish Lord, The Earl of Mansfield. Today it is owned by members of the Red Stripe Beer family. Present owners have extensively renovated the home with concentration on accommodating families. Victorian fretwork and warm mahogany floors are original, while Italian travertine reflects the recent renovation. Interior design is a tasteful eclectic mix of high-tech amenities combined with Jamaican and English antiques.
Everyone’s favorite gathering place is the large furnished verandah overlooking the vast expanse of deep blue Caribbean Sea. Stone steps lead from the main house down a slope to a private cove and fabulous crystal clear bay, wonderful for swimming, floating, snorkeling and kayaking. The sea entrance is by steps into water that is about one foot deep and sandy bottom, perfect for children. The swimming area is all sand bottom and about 5-6 ft. deep.
Beside the waterfront deck is an outdoor shower. The gardener will place chaises on the seaside deck and the butler will serve lunch there if you wish to stay on the waterfront all day. Scotchie is a perfect holiday destination!
