Datura Villa is a five bedroom, fully staffed, private vacation destination that is located just seven miles from the Montego Bay airport in the town of Reading. The villa sits 500 feet above sea level, on nine private acres, and affords spectacular views of Montego Bay and its islands.

Originally built in 1930 by the editor of The New Yorker magazine, the villa has the amenities of a fine hotel and yet offers affordable luxury, privacy, and close proximity to all tourist activities, nightlife, and the airport.

Within the house is a high-ceiling, grand living room with mahogany floors, a library, bar, TV room with a state-of-the-art LCD projector and eight foot screen, antiques, a screened-in dining room overlooking the aquamarine waters below, and a modern commercial kitchen with pantry, ice maker, two refrigerators, and blenders.

The large terrace, which is ideal for day- dreaming and viewing stars at night, overlooks the large swimming pool and hot tub. Also on the grounds are a tennis court, a large, private fitness pavilion with state-of-the-art equipment, tropical gardens, bird-watching, and fruit trees of Mango, Orange, banana, coconut, lemon, allspice, ackee, nesberry, papaya, and breadfruit.

Within short distances, there are several beautiful beaches, 5 excellent golf courses, SCUBA, Para-sailing, plantation tours, bird watching, river rafting, horseback riding, waterfalls, spa treatments, shopping, dining/dancing, nightclubs and a casino.

Included in the rental price is a full staff consisting of a cook, housekeeper, maid(s), caretaker/gardener, and our property manager/concierge.

Complementary guest laundry is provided as well as fresh linens and towels.

This is the perfect spot for families, honeymoons, weddings, and groups of friends to relax and play.

"Wonderful!"

Thank you for such a wonderful review! I would like to correct one point about our swimming pool. It is not a salt water pool. Rather, our swimming pool is a fresh water pool that uses a salt chlorination system which produces free chlorine ions but no chloramines--the chemicals that are responsible for the chlorine smell of pools, as well as skin, hair, and eye irritation. The advantage of our system is that it offers a sanitary, silky, fresh water taste and quality without the caustic effects associated with conventional chlorine. Our system is of course more expensive to maintain than simply throwing chemicals into the pool but, as our guest noted, the experience is far more pleasurable and luxurious.
