Canoe Cove Vacation Rental

Experience this new 7-bedroom contemporary beachfront villa on three private acres in Old Fort Bay!

In the 1950’s, Kingston attorney Clinton Hart happened onto this remarkable 3-acre waterfront location, bought it and built a simple beach cottage for his family. Through the generations, Canoe Cove has been a beloved family home, virtually unembellished. Last year, Hart’s grandson replaced the worn cottage with a new sort of architecture, straightforward, uncomplicated and loaded with thoughtful comforts and essentials to redefine luxury in a beachy, barefoot lifestyle.

Here is a dream come true for the three-generation family whose wish list of individual requirements includes copious space for togetherness; intimate space to take a nap, finish a novel or have a massage; sporting options to satisfy restless cravings for activity and the stimulation of competitive sports; and spacious dining areas when those other cravings kick in and your chef rings the bell that signals time for another long, leisurely, luscious meal. In short, make your multi-faceted wish list and take a look at Canoe Cove.

The 200’ beach ranges in width from sea wall to surf from 15’ in high tide to 30’ in low tide, varying with weather patterns. For joggers or strollers, the extended beach length is approximately 1,000 feet. The uninterrupted view extends all the way to the horizon, punctuated a few times each week by tall white cruise ships drifting silently across your view toward the harbor.

Canoe Cove encourages a relaxed, un-fussy vacation with an abundance of sporty options balanced with as much pure relaxation as anyone could want. The location is amazing. The service is excellent. The villa itself is stylish without pretense or overstatement, uncluttered and totally livable. Inside, textures of exotic woods establish a grounded, organic ambience as backdrop against stylish furnishings. Cedar, Jojoba, Honduran pine, marble, coral stone and natural cement floors are cool under bare feet. Finishes of reclaimed teak and driftwood echo the Caribbean venue. Decorating a hallway is a whimsical 6’ pendant lamp made entirely of old magazines and looking remarkably like bark. Across the lawn, supporting structures of the gazebo are purloined telephone poles with bamboo-clad bases. Delicate orchids cultivated on site contrast with other natural materials and adorn most rooms.

Guests will also enjoy the sports activities. Golfers can practice on the 5-hole 1,300-sq-ft graded synthetic turf putting green & sand bunker (putters & wedges provided). Tennis players will enjoy the Har-Tru green clay tennis court -- the only Har-Tru court on Jamaica’s north coast (racquets provided). Also features 1/4-size basketball court, private gym (SOLE recumbent stationary bike, PRO-FORMA treadmill, bench & weights) and private massage room.

For tennis buffs who want to bring their own tennis pro from home, on-site sleeping accommodations can be arranged and villa staff will look after this guest. Nannies from home may sleep in the child’s room.

Child-friendly swimming pool has a shallow entry for toddlers, a man-made sandbox big enough for everyone, nearby outdoor shower and a grassy yard for lawn games. Kayak life jackets come small-medium-large.

Accommodations

Four bedrooms downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs. Six of the bedrooms all open to patios or balconies and feature en suite bathrooms. Bedroom 7 designed as children's room has a small bathroom and no access to patios or balconies.

Combining bedrooms 1, 2 and 7 creates a convenient family suite, each bedroom door being a few steps from the next.

Jamaica Travel Guide

Out of Many, One People

One of the Caribbean’s most popular villa destinations, Jamaica has something for everyone and every occasion. Many venture to Jamaica to tan and relax on the breathtaking beaches, while others come to enjoy the plethora of activities. Avid snorkelers and scuba divers can discover the beautiful coral reefs and exotic marine life. Coffee lovers will take pleasure in the delicious home-grown coffee from the famous Jamaican Blue Mountains, which are also ideal for hiking and horseback riding. Sightseers will want to climb the world-famous 600-foot-high Dunn's River Falls, and bird-lovers will enjoy the Rocklands Feeding Station, home to Jamaica’s 27 native species. Those who want to see beautiful sunsets should partake in the Jamaican tradition and head over to the famous Rick’s Cafe in Negril, where visitors will not only see magnificent sunset views, but also watch brave cliff-jumpers dive into the crystal-clear water.

A villa vacation in Jamaica is unique in that many of our villas come with a full staff (chef, butler, housekeeper and laundress) included. The friendly staff will treat you with their “No problem, mon” service, where everything you desire is at your beck and call.
