Island Outpost Set to Open Calabash Bay

Island Outpost is set to enter the villa market with Calabash Bay, located on Jamaica's south coast, set to open during the first quarter of 2006. Built on over two acres of land, Calabash Bay is actually comprised of two units: one four-bedroom villa and a two-bedroom house, which can be rented together or separately. The décor of Calabash Bay utilizes bamboo and rattan, hand-woven straw mats and yellow concrete floors. Indonesian and Moroccan furniture and accents mix with local Jamaican art and handcrafted pieces made from local cedar wood. Amenities include wireless Internet access, cable television, and cooling air conditioning and ceiling fans. Calabash Bay comes with a staff of four: an in-villa cook, butler, gardener and houseman. A concierge will also be on-hand. The house is a ten-minute walk from Jake's, and is situated around the corner from Treasure Beach. Rates for Calabash Bay start at $800 per night for the four-bedroom villa and $250 per night for the two-bedroom house, plus 18.25 percent tax and service charge.
