Description:

Completed in 2004, Greatview is the newest and most glamorous private home overlooking the Half Moon golf course, Ritz Carlton and vast vista of Caribbean Sea. Three world-class golf courses (Cinnamon Hill, Half Moon and White Witch) are within a five-minute drive. The view is breathtaking ~ the deep blue sea to the north and magnificent mountains to the south. Here is the marriage of exquisite taste, beauty and comfort ~ floors of French limestone, Travertine marble and exotic pressed bamboo; walls of Barbados coral stone and Venetian glaze. The details are immaculate and artistic. Furnishings are an exquisite combination of Asian antique and tropical colonial. Grounds are lush in orange, lime and ackee trees, avocado, papaya, mango, breadfruit, Poinciana, flame trees and delicate orchids.

Five well-appointed bedrooms are complemented by inside and outside dining areas, a snug television den and an air-conditioned gym complete with TV and fitness videos.

Greatview is fully staffed, including an expert chef who presents exquisite meals from the state-of-the-art kitchen with six-burner commercial gas stove and grill, two ovens, bread maker, rotisserie, microwave, wine cooler, cappuccino/espresso machine, dishwasher and icemaker. Chef Delores delights guests with her specialties of homemade pate, jerk chicken, lobster Newberg, grilled salmon in avocado sauce, pecan-crusted snapper, grilled shrimp and tenderloin, grasshopper pie and more. Table service is Wedgwood and Lenox china and sterling silver. Meals are served formally under the crystal chandelier or more casually on the al fresco 700-square-foot verandah overlooking the pool and magnificent view. Because of the extraordinary menus, the Greatview grocery budget is $50 per adult per day and $35 for children under 14.

The large infinity-edge pool flows as a waterfall into the hot tub on the lower lawn. The poolside bar has a television, blender and smoothie-maker, and fridge stocked with drinks.

Colorful Montego Bay, the "hip strip" and Doctor's Cave Beach with water sports and Groovy Grouper Restaurant are just 20 minutes away. Ten minutes east is Rose Hall Beach with sailing, windsurfing, glass bottom boat, jet skis, diving and snorkeling, beach volleyball, bar and restaurant, and sunset cruises. For excursions, snorkels, fins, masks, picnic baskets and beach towels are provided. The Greatview owner offers a complimentary starter voucher at Rose Hall Beach.
