Rio Chico Estate on 14 Acres with Private Shoreline, Tennis, Gym
Description from the manager
Fourteen acres of abundant tropical vegetation, fresh waterfalls and creeks greet you during the drive across the scenic meandering entryway to Rio Chico. The property comprises 2,000 feet of protected shoreline, two private white sand beaches and breathtaking panoramic views of the crystal Caribbean Sea. Stroll along lush manicured gardens that are accented with classical Italian sculptures and stone ivy-covered bridges at this resplendent island estate.
The villa offers plenty of magical tucked away swimming spotsa main pool featuring a cliff-side infinity wading area, a smaller pool near the beach and a natural waterfall pool. Or take a relaxing soak in the hot tub. A home theatre, private night lit tennis court, sea kayaks, snorkeling gear, table tennis, netball and croquet are provided for your entertainment. The villa comes with a large private staff (two butlers, private chef and sous chef, housekeepers, water-sports guru, multiple groundskeepers and 24 hour security) to pamper you, cook and serve your meals and ensure your comfort throughout your stay. Feel free to ask the friendly international chef to cook according to your specifications.
The pristine, tastefully painted rooms at Rio Chico are a testament to the classic aesthetic so elegantly portrayed at this destination. The dark wooden accents and plush furniture contribute to the stately feel of your surroundings. The alfresco dining area under the clinging vines of the latticed roof paint chiaroscuro memories as you dine on grilled lobster, chicken or fish.
The eight majestic bedrooms at Rio Chico accommodate up to eighteen guests. Six bedrooms with king beds are located in the main house, and another two with queen beds in the cottage. All of the bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning, and the views are simply stunning. Why not enjoy the comfort of the complimentary Italian Anichini linens and Frette bathrobes as you enjoy breakfast in bed?
The various streams, waterfalls and pools that carve through the grounds at Rio Chico spring directly from the same mountain source as nearby Dunns River. Recommendations for short outings include exploring the beauty of the Green Grotto Caves and visiting the outdoor museum Columbus Park in Discovery Bay to learn about the Spanish colonial era first hand from the artifacts on showcase. However you decide to spend your time in Jamaica, the sheer grandeur and variety of landscapes at Rio Chico will have you feeling like an epic character from a romance novel in no time.
