If you fancy the idea of staying somewhere that might inspire literary inspiration, the villa where writer Ian Fleming created James Bond might leave you both shaken and stirred.
The Fleming Villa at GoldenEye in Jamaica is an oceanside Ocho Rios retreat with a famous history. The five-bedroom, five-bathroom villa sleeps 10 people and is composed of the main house and two guest cottages, including a pool house. The other cottage is called the Sweet Spot and it contains the fifth bedroom.
While staying at the villa, you can enjoy the services of a personal chef, butler and housekeeper. You can dine in multiple outdoor areas in this tropical island escape, choosing to be amid flowering gardens or overlooking the sea.
The villa features classic Jamaican architecture with wood-trimmed jalousie windows that open to island breezes and beautiful views. The desk where Ian Fleming wrote his James Bond novels is still there, and there is an exotic outdoor shower set among banana trees.
Facilities include Wi-Fi cable TV, CD and DVD players and an iPod dock, and you can relax outdoors and enjoy the surround sound speakers. The Fleming Villa attracts writers, artists and others who cherish their privacy and enjoy the inspiring surroundings at the edge of the Caribbean Sea.
You can stroll over to the main GoldenEye complex for health and beauty treatments at the spa, have a cocktail at the Bizot Bar, and enjoy a dinner at the Gazebo. As a guest of GoldenEye, you will find water sports, tennis, fishing and mountain biking right at your fingertips.
