Five Jamaica properties added to firm's portfolio

CABIN JOHN, Md. -- Five new properties joined the portfolio of Villas by Linda Smith, bringing the Maryland company's roster of properties to 54.

Roaring Pavilion

Remember the scene in the film "Dr. No" when Sean Connery spots Ursula Andress as she materializes through the surf?

That scene was shot at the Roaring Pavilion villa, a 6,000-square-foot property located in St. Ann's Bay just outside Ocho Rios. It features four bedrooms and three living areas.

The staff includes a major-domo, a concierge, two butlers, a Paris-trained chef, a chambermaid, a laundress and two gardeners. The spa has a steam room with rainfall and handheld showers; a treatment room; and a teak deck with treatment tables.

Drambuie Estate

The stunning villa, set on 35 acres in the mountains near Montego Bay, is 1,500 feet above sea level.

The property, built by the Duke of Marlborough in the 1940s, features vibrant, colorful walls; Chinese rugs; 1930s French posters; and carved sculptures whose origins span the globe. Separate pathways connect five bedrooms under three roofs. A charming cottage houses three of the five bedrooms.


The more diminutive three-bedroom Eureka villa overlooks the Caribbean and the eighth fairway at the 2,200-acre Tryall Golf Club. The villa staff of four includes a chef, a chambermaid, a laundress and a gardener. The property's centerpiece is a 650-square-foot Great Room that opens up onto a 130-foot-long veranda and pool.


The 10,000-square-foot, five-bedroom villa also is located at Tryall. The two-acre site, overlooking the Caribbean, features granite bars, verandas, a two-level pool terrace and mahogany and travertine marble floors.


The six-bedroom villa affords views of the ocean, Half Moon golf course and the Ritz Carlton Golf & Spa Resort at Rose Hall. Three golf courses -- Cinnamon Hill, Half Moon and White Witch -- are a stone's throw away. The villa's five bedrooms as well as a gym are located in the main house; a cottage, complete with a kitchen, also is on site.
