Bolt House - Oracabessa, Jamaica

Surrounded by 50 acres of landscaped lawn, fruit trees, and lush, untouched tropical forest, Bolt House is nestled on a hill overlooking Port Maria's beautiful blue harbor on the island of Jamaica.

Whether you are enjoying an exotic meal; swimming in the bright blue sea; soaking in the jacuzzi; de-stressing with a massage; de-toxing in the sauna; peacefully strolling the estate or just relaxing under the flicker of the star studded sky; we guarantee you'll leave here feeling completely pampered and rejuvenated.

Beautifully manicured lawns, wild tropical foliage, and glorious coastal views, all await you at Bolt House. A vibrant flower garden and soothing lily pond flank the east side of the house; a yoga deck on the west side is perfectly positioned under the shade of a tree looking out to a magnificent view of the ocean. The terrace, in the shade of the almond trees, allows for casual dining during the day and a romantic dinner setting amidst the flicker of candles and torches, at night.

With it's rich and almost mythical heritage, dating back to the '50s and '60's, Bolt House has played a significant role in the social life of the island, hosting such luminaries as Charlie Chaplin and the Queen Mother of England.

The property came alive during the era of Ian Fleming, thespian and author of the James Bond novels; Noel Coward, famed artist; and at the centre of Bolt House's history, Blanche Blackwell daughter of Alexandre Lindo.

Several decades later Blanche's son, Christopher Blackwell bought the GoldenEye property, which is still a close neighbor to the Bolt House. In 2000 Blanche Blackwell sold the Bolt House to it's current owner who has totally refurbished the 5000 square foot villa ncluding all new bathrooms, infinity pool, new furnishing and electronics.

Augmenting this secluded five-bedroom private home, is a one-bedroom cottage at GoldenEye, Spanish Elm with an exterior kitchenette, a front terrace overlooking the lagoon, secluded access to it below and a new private deck right on the water that can be rented for an additional fee/night.

Guests also have full access to the GoldenEye beach as well as all the water sporting activities they offer. Please note that all motorized water sports incur a separate charge, payable directly to Golden Eye.
