Property Description

Built in the 1940's by the Duke of Marlborough, Drambuie Estate is a slice of old Jamaica when lively drawing room conversation and gracious service ruled the day in an extraordinary private setting. Today this remarkable hideaway retains many exquisite original features plus contemporary amenities of air conditioned bedrooms, cable televisions and Internet access, the best of both worlds from two centuries.

Drambuie is exquisitely furnished with Chinese rugs; original art; 1930's French posters; carved sculpture from Jamaica, England, China and Africa; and Chippendale and Queen Anne treasures complemented by casual wicker veranda furnishings. A few steps across a grassy lawn are the large pool, umbrella tables and shaded luncheon pavilion. Each night, the lighted town of Montego Bay and cruise ships in the harbor twinkle like a diamond necklace in the distance. Star-gazing through Drambuie's telescope adds magical nighttime drama.

The Drambuie chef indulges guests in many specialties including seafood royale (fish, lobster and shrimp in cream sauce), quesadillas, lobster thermador, sweet and sour pork, key lime pie, banana pudding, crepes and artistic presentation at every meal, served on Wedgwood bone china. The night view from the dinner table is incredible, beautiful beyond words.

Cut stone walls brought from England 200 years ago as a ship's ballast comprise the 18 inch walls of the main house. Vaulted ceilings are 16 feet high. Floors are cool tiles from England, Mexico and South America. The main house consists of the great room with pool table, 50" television, VCR and sound system; inlaid games table for chess, checkers or backgammon; and comfortable sitting area. French doors open to a 330 foot wrap-around stone veranda furnished with alfresco dining tables, wicker sitting area, tempting hammock and lawn leading to the pool. Through tall mahogany doors is the large master bedroom suite. Also in this building are the powder room, butler pantry and kitchen.

A tiled path leads 30 feet from the main house to the cottage. Here are three more bedrooms which can be connecting for parents and children or kept private via locking doors. A furnished veranda fronts the cottage. Nine steps down from the cottage is the fifth bedroom, an intimate hideaway for two.

The Drambuie staff are delighted to take guests on property tours to explain how the estate operates and to point out the many varieties of tropical flora, fauna and birds that thrive here.

Drambuie's complimentary full time driver will handle all airport transfers as well as excursions to beaches, water sports outlets, restaurants, shops and various tour destinations. Guests are asked to tip their driver locally.

Drambuie's staff and owners love their dogs, free to run the property if you wish. They are calm, friendly and gentle with children. On request, the dogs can be kept in their large fenced yard all day during your vacation.

Drambuie is an exquisite wedding and honeymoon location.
