Shhh. Don’t tell Jamaica Inn’s general manager Mary Phillip that we spilled the beans, but Cottage #7 — a private onebedroom, 2018-square foot, two-storey cottage complete with its own pool and access to a private cove in the Caribbean Sea — is located to the very east of the property.
Access is gained on the ground level through a foyer area with a cathedral ceiling between a double-volume staircase and the living room. The living room has 20-foot glass doors facing a private infinity edge pool overhanging the Caribbean Sea. Two feet below the pool deck is a wooden deck for lounging or dining cantilevered over the sea.
You’ll love the relaxed charm of the living room, which is tiled with large-format shell stone and furnished with contemporary Caribbean furniture. The bar is equipped with a beautiful art sink by Jamaican potter David Pinto and lit by a collection of pendants overhead.
There is a powder room on the ground floor with a vanity fabricated from a chunk of local guango wood.
A wooden staircase rises through a double-volume space to the bedroom on the second floor. Two sets of French doors open to the amazing sea views to the north and east, with a balcony facing the cove. The floor for upstairs is teak. The bedroom is accented by a custom-made Jamaican modern four-poster bed and luxurious rugs.
The bathroom boasts a free-standing oval tub, two vanities, walk-in closet, shower with iridescent glass tiles, and just outside on the balcony is a pebble-floor outdoor shower.
