Great River House is located in a private gated neighborhood of other upscale villas, the entire property is fenced and entered through wrought iron gates, ensuring complete privacy. Grounds include a hard-surface tennis court, a putting green and a spacious grassy lawn with badminton and croquet. Fruit trees enhance the manicured lawns. Royal Palms, citrus and pimento trees are gently lit each evening.

Built in 1956 by a member of the Dupont family, a renovation in 2008 by modernist architect Tom Reed (and latest enhancements in 2015)  combines elegance, an expansive pool terrace, state-of-the-art technology including wireless Internet throughout, and cable televisions.

Locally-crafted mahogany furniture reflects an old Jamaica ambiance, complemented by contemporary designer fabrics, a chefs kitchen, and Kohler en-suite bathrooms with water tiles. Interiors are distinguished by artwork by famous illustrator Arthur Taylor, George Rodrique and original botanical and Jamaican watercolors and oils. The large serpentine pool features an infinity waterfall edge, fountain, expansive stone terrace and divided shallow children's pool.

Candlelight dinners are served in an interior air-conditioned dining room where guests may enjoy a view over the pool and its infinity edge to the sea beyond. Meals may also be served al fresco on the 2,400-square-foot pool terrace. The chef treats guests to fresh fish and grilled lobster, and everyone's favorite, jerk pork and chicken prepared on our own jerk drum. Also, farm to table fruit, herbs and avocados grown on the property.

Various nooks and crannies are thoughtfully provided for individual escapes. A flower-filled side courtyard with out-door shower offers a special hideaway for rejuvenating spa treatments on request.

Reviews

  • The entire team was excellent. The food was wonderful and everyone was very accommodating to our son with allergies.

    Prince was extremely helpful and we greatly appreciated his efforts, as well as Karen, Suzette, Desmond and Ron.

    Furnishings are very attractive and beds very comfortable!

    Duke

  • Terrific, kind, courteous and friendly staff.

    Prince is an exceptional butler. His charm and courtesy made this a delightful experience. We all loved him.

    Desmond is the best cook we've ever met! The cooking here is superb! Desmond accommodated small children, a vegetarian, and different schedules. We couldn't wait for each meal!

    Beautifully maintained house and grounds. We loved the table linens! Having Sonos was great.

    This is the 6th villa we have rented and by far our favorite! Beautiful, well thought out house.

    Thank you for all the ways you made us so cozy and relaxed and happy!

    Alexandra & Frederick P.

    Terry M.

  • Dear Linda,

    Thank you! We had a wonderful time at this amazing house! We will miss night swimming, smoothies, the bonfire, tennis and most of all, daiquiri time. The food was delicious and everyone helped to make this an incredible vacation.

    All the best,

    Stephanie M.

  • Dear Linda,

    Great River House was absolutely brilliant!!! We had a fantastic time, and were well looked after. Carlington and Radcliffe were especially awesome. Excellent service, and the food was out of this world.
