A fine 18-hole golf course and a sports centre with swimming pool, tennis courts, and a squash court cater for the actively minded, whilst the commercial centre has a wide range of shops, restaurants, bars, and a supermarket to sustain the needs for everyday living. The Grand Princess Casino has its own bars, nightclub and spa roof terrace and features regular live shows. For all its many amenities, Jolly Harbour remains a sophisticated and tranquil setting to while away the holiday hours.

Hamilton Estate stands on a peaceful hillside a few hundred yards back from the delightful sweep of Jolly Beach and a short walk from the entrance to Jolly Harbour Marina and Resort. Access to the beach is through an attractive nature reserve that borders the site to the front directly across the coast road. Four villas are being constructed over the course of the next year or so, the second of which, "Coco House", is being retained by the proprietors for their own use.

This villa has picturesque views towards Jolly Harbour and the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea to the front and forested hills to the side and rear. Coco House is towards the back of the development with the best coastal views.

A gated private access road leads from the coast road to the entrance of each property, opening to a parking area for two vehicles. The gardens will be landscaped with ground cover and a selection of exotic tropical trees and flora. Perimeter fencing and a separate gated entrance will provide the villa with additional privacy and security.

The veranda takes full advantage of the commanding views of the gorgeous tropical sunsets and the cooling trade winds which provide natural air-conditioning. The external living areas of the villa are not overlooked by its neighbours, ensuring a high degree of personal privacy.

The Villa

Coco House is designed for al fresco living with extensive verandas and decks that extend the internal spaces outwards. All principal rooms open on to covered external areas, creating an ambiguous edge between the inside and outside - so suited to well-adjusted tropical living. Large glass sliding doors connect the bedroom areas to the pool deck, whilst the wide swing-back doors of the living areas can be secured open to take full advantage of the cooling breezes and glorious sunshine. See the Floor plan for details. 

The three double bedrooms are all en-suite and include sliding mirror-door wardrobes. The half-tiled bathrooms feature American Standard fittings with bathtub and shower, water-saver toilet, vanity unit with wash basin, wall-mirror, and the normal accessories such as towel rails and soap dishes. The master bedroom has an additional wardrobe, and the villa will be fitted with an extra large storage unit that is lockable and can be retained for each owner's personal belongings. The glass sliding doors of the master bedroom open directly on to the pool veranda whilst the two guest bedrooms open to a corridor with a glass sliding wall also accessing the pool veranda. There is also a utility room off this corridor that has plumbing for a washing machine and includes an additional WC, washbasin and a lockable storeroom.


The main living area features glass doors to three sides, providing access to all veranda areas and unrestricted scenic views. The kitchen area is fully-fitted with a range of base and wall units and includes a stove with oven and hob, and an American style refrigerator. The kitchen also has double door access to the dining veranda. Internal floors and the floor of the pool veranda are covered with ceramic tiles whilst the pool surround and the living and dining verandas are finished in wooden decking. Ceiling fans are fitted throughout, both internally and externally, and air conditioning units are fitted in all of the bedrooms. Additional units can be fitted on request.
 
A high level of specification will apply to all building materials and internal fittings. Coco House will also have a larger pool, its own electricity generator and other upgraded specification over the the other three villas. be fitted with , and each owner will be free to select the colour and style of many of the finishing materials and will be able to upgrade and personalise certain fittings as optional extras.

Should you be interested in purchasing a villa outright, rather than a share in a group with a boat,  you can find all the relevant information at www.jollyvillas.com. Please note that this business has no other connection with the OwnerGroups Company. 

The boat.

The owners of Coco House will also share ownership of a sailing yacht. Exact choice and specification of the boat will be determined jointly by the co-owners, but a Bavaria 42, Beneteau Cyclades or similar is anticipated. The accommodation on this type of boat is optimised to provide excellent day-sailing. While providing good facilities for overnight cruises, the "shore base" of Coco House enables cabin space to be given a lower priority compared to day facilities. It is expected that maintenance costs of the boat will be largely if not entirely covered by charters which have already been organised through the developer's associated holiday company utilising a local professional skipper.
