Address: Discovery Bay, Jamaica
Located on a private waterfront acre, Sea Haven is a traditional West Indian cottage dressed in charming periwinkle blue. It sits directly on the edge of beautiful Discovery Bay. 

The living room is sunshine yellow with a vaulted ceiling painted to match the sky. Antiques include a 200-year-old rocker made of twigs. Tortoise-back mahogany dining chairs Circa 1780 are from Admiralty House in Port Royal and were used by Lords Rodney and Horatio Nelson. 
The living room opens wide to the 60' verandah ... furnished in wicker chaises, draped with flowering vines and overlooking the turquoise bay. On one side of the waterfront is a small sandy area. On the other side, cut-stone steps lead into wonderful swimming and snorkeling water.

From the water's edge, it's an easy swim to the sunning platform. Watch romantic sunsets from the verandah or Jacuzzi plunge pool. 
After sunset, your chef will serve you delicious candlelight dinners on Spode china ~ inside, on the open-air verandah, or in the gazebo over a natural coral formation on the water's edge.

During the day, a bird feeding tree dapples the gazebo and, in the afternoon, the pool. For all-day sunshine and blue, blue water... luxuriate in the buoyant bay which is Sea Haven's front yard. 

The garden consists of just under an acre of tropical shrubs and trees, the trunks of which are smothered with Broughtonia, Brassavola and Oncidium orchids. Fruit trees abound, including Mugulba and Julie mangos, ackee, sweetsop, soursop, otaheiti apple, and lime. An exotic Alamanda vine shades the entry. Humming bird trumpet and Japanese hat attract humming birds to the verandah.

Just in front, we built a perfect half moon pool, 21’ x 11’, tiled with ocean blue mosaics, with a bench, heater, air blower and 16 jets. From the hammock and gazebo, from everywhere, in fact, the murmur of the sea is always heard.
Beside the man-made white sand beach is a cut-stone barbecue
