Montego Bay, Jamaica – Caribbeans
Welcome to Villa Rica on the Beach, a luxurious 5 bedroom beachfront villa located in the beautiful Montego Bay. Rica is perched on one of the most coveted sites on Jamaica’s lush north coast. This iconic villa is a unique, sprawling 15,000-square-foot private home.
Rica is a unique combination of the Caribbean and Oriental elegance. The architecture in this Jamaican villa is immaculately tasteful consisting of airy pavilions with peaked roofs and its living spaces separated by water gardens and bridges. Rica is simply a paradigm of beauty and style.
The 600-square-foot main pavilion consists of the Great Room with 56 glass doors and massive wrap-around veranda on floors of gleaming white Jamaican marble. Outside the Great Room, a Japanese footbridge arches over a reflecting pool to the formal dining room. Like the Great Room, the dining room has wrap-around glass doors that open to the mesmerizing landscape of gardens and ocean view. Everyone’s favorite gathering place is the veranda generously furnished with deep comfy chairs and sofas, dining tables, a nearby bar and cable television. On this spacious veranda, breakfasts, lunches and candlelight dinners are served where memorable meals are created by Chef Jerome and served by our good Butler Rodrick. Steal away across the soft lawn for a solitary escape. Take a nap and read a book in the shade and wave at a cruise ship full of passengers who wish they were where you are.
Outside you will find a well-kept lawn dotted with gardens and a soft sand beach where you will find complimentary kayaks. The gentle surf makes it easy for parents and kids alike to paddle and play as much desired. Many memorable moments will be made here. The sprawling grounds are like both a park and a playing field. The gardens include a wild orchid tree, herb garden, two mango trees, one lime tree and a beautiful breadfruit tree. The wide lawns are home to croquet, badminton and volleyball. 100 yards offshore is Holden’s Reef, a continuation of the barrier reef complex that fronts much of Jamaica’s north coast. Easily reachable by kayak, this live reef is home to a myriad of tropical fish and corals. At low tide, portions protrude above the water so you can step from your kayak to snorkel in shallow water. On the ocean side, deeper waters beckon the more adventurous or scuba equipped.
You will have the perfect start to each of your days in the Master bedroom at Villa Rica that opens out to its own spacious porch where you will wake to the aroma of eye-opener Jamaican coffee, quietly placed there by our butler. After you have had your delicious full breakfast, you might enjoy a walk east on the beach for your morning exercise. Take a swim in the sun. Take a moment at the point to gaze eight miles across the sea to the town of Montego Bay, stunning when lit after dusk. Stroll back to the villa and grab a cold drink, then take the spiral staircase to the roof deck for a more elevated view of Montego Bay. On a quiet night, the sound of waves lapping on the beach may lull you to sleep.
Villa Rica shares eight acres on the sea with deluxe neighbouring villas Serenity and Tranquillity on the Beach. Combining these 3 homes creates a 15-bedroom compound with 3 pools, 1 tennis court, 1 basketball hoop, long beachfront and staff of 19. This remarkable waterfront trio is a favorite for family reunions. All 3 villas are very private from each other, extremely family-friendly and welcome children.

While staying at Villa Rica you will be personally looked after by our wonderful team of staff. Everyone craves the extraordinary food and service that come with a villa vacation. Your arrival starts with a welcome drink offered by a longtime butler, Rodrick. Many more drinks to come. Talented Chef Jerome artfully presents meals as attractive as they are delicious. The housekeeping team headed by Ionie looks after your bedroom and bathroom, lamps, linens and laundry, and ensures fluffy towels for bath and beach.
