About Great River House - Montego Bay Jamaica


Set in Montego Bay on five acres of gently sloping land with sea view and surrounded by manicured lawns, Great River House is the product of a massive renovation. 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 and a spacious grassy lawn with badminton and croquet. Royal Palms, citrus and pimento trees are gently lit each evening.

Built in 1956 by a member of the Dupont family, a renovation by modernist architect Tom Reed 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. 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.
