Drambuie Estate is a spectacular 35 acre hilltop villa with extraordinary views of the sea and Montego Bay. The villa was built in the 1940's by the Duke of Malborough as their private winter residence. Using cut stone walls brought from England over 200 years ago as ships ballast, the villa is constructed to resemble a 18th century tropical plantation house.
The Main House consists of a Great Room with large, comfortable sitting area, games area (including a pool table), TV viewing, sound system and many french doors that open onto a 330 foot wrap around stone veranda. The villa is furnished in great style with antiques, oriental carpets, fine original art, china and pottery. Also in the Main House is the spacious Master Bedroom suite.
A short pathway from the Main House leads through tropical gardens to The Cottage, where there are an additional 3 bedrooms. A few steps down from The Cottage is The Hideaway, a very private bedroom retreat, making for 5 bedrooms in total.
All bedrooms are air conditioned with ceiling fans, cable television, CD sound system and mini-bar.
-Bedroom 1 is a large 22 x 30 feet with a King 4 poster antique canopy bed, large dressing area, private bath with double vanity, bidet, walled private shower, sunken bathtub. Opens to the veranda through double french doors.

-Bedroom 2 has a King with private bath (tub shower combo)
-Bedroom 3 also has a King with private bath (tub shower combo)
-Bedroom 4 also has a King with private bath (tub shower combo)

The long veranda that surrounds the Main House leads down to a manicured lawn and sparking pool, all overlooking the blue of the Caribbean Sea and Montego Bay in the distance. At night the twinkling lights of the city are spectacular. The pool is an extra large 28 x 65 feet and is surrounded by terraces with comfortable lounge chairs and a Dining Pavilion and bar.
