Our villa project in Jamaica was a great opportunity to apply everything I learned and practiced with Artemano. The attention to details (there are infinite details) and having nature as our guide played a major role in the final results. The journey started 4 years ago on our first trip to Treasure Beach. We fell in love with this nature's jewel, a fishing (domino playing) village with friendly people that smile for no apparent reason 24/7 and nature displaying his art all around us. I feel blessed that we were welcomed to the vernissage. In planning the space the first item on the agenda was to see the Caribbean Sea from the entrance and be able to experience the sunset. Part of my learning experience was appreciating the power of empty space in decor: empty spaces empowers the rest...Our villa project in Jamaica was a great opportunity to apply everything I learned and practiced with Artemano. The attention to details (there are infinite details) and having nature as our guide played a major role in the final results. The journey started 4 years ago on our first trip to Treasure Beach. We fell in love with this nature's jewel, a fishing (domino playing) village with friendly people that smile for no apparent reason 24/7 and nature displaying his art all around us. I feel blessed that we were welcomed to the vernissage. In planning the space the first item on the agenda was to see the Caribbean Sea from the entrance and be able to experience the sunset. Part of my learning experience was appreciating the power of empty space in decor: empty spaces empowers the rest. And so we followed it with high ceilings large windows and a flat roof - the best seat in the house for witnessing nature's performance every day. When traveling to my suppliers on my buying trips, their showroom is their back yard. It feels personal and the whole buying experience becomes a visit to a friend’s home meeting the family...and buying. That was part of my inspiration, we placed many of our decor outside and the blend with nature creates a relaxing harmony. I always say to our coworkers that our stores are our stages, and we are the actors. Jamaica has presented another stage where my wife and I could express ideas. The process of building is very rewarding. The freedom to express oneself is a gift. About the Villa: Villa Elia is a wonderful blending of an incredible Jamaican setting offering the most expansive view in all of Treasure Beach combined with our beautiful Artemano nature sculpted furniture made of exotic wood imported from Thailand and the cool architecture of the villa. What you will experience is one of the most stunning private villas located in Treasure Beach filled with love and hospitality. The villa includes a large living/dining area with an amazing signature Artemano dining table which seats up to 14 persons. The comfortable seating area is nestled right next to the pool area. Open the sliding glass doors and step into the pool. The master suite includes a king size bed in the room and sliding glass doors taking you out on to your private deck overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The master bath includes indoor and outdoor showers and a bathtub. Choose your luxury. Both guest bedrooms include a queen size bed and share a bathroom with a shower that opens up to the sky. There are intercoms in all bedrooms allowing you to call on assistance. The caring staff of Villa Elia will make sure you are pampered during your stay. Betty and Eliesiea will prepare breakfast and dinner for you each day using healthy and fresh ingredients some of which are grown on property, you just reimburse them for the cost of the food. Chut is your on-site caretaker making sure the grounds are well kept and will attend to any needs you may have. There is an expansive patio overlooking the sea and a rooftop deck perched just right to enjoy each spectacular sunset. Walk down the stairs and you are on the beach. Villa Elia was built with lots of love. The idea behind Villa Elia was to build an oasis where we can eat healthy food, enjoy nature, and totally unwind. Come and enjoy! More

This is gorgeous, rural Jamaica where we experienced the countryside with nature all around us. If you're looking for developed beaches with scores of bars and restaurants, this villa isn't for you. Goats graze just beyond the shore and the only litter is driftwood. Every...More
