Now you can rent a room at Ian Fleming's villa in Jamaica

15-Jun-2014 • Bond Style

The Fleming Villa, a three-bedroom home in Oracabessa on Jamaica’s north coast where Ian Fleming wrote his James Bond novels, is usually available to rent only in its entirety, but now travelers will be able to rent a single bedroom, reports the New York Times.

The 7,500-square-foot space is part of Goldeneye, a resort owned by the Island Records founder Chris Blackwell, and is set among 15 acres of grounds overlooking the ocean, which have almond trees planted by Mr. Fleming.

The paper points out that, "highlights of the retreat include a private beach, a pool, a large media room with a 64-inch flat-screen television, an indoor/outdoor sound system, a full staff with a butler, cook and housekeeper, and memorabilia throughout, including the author’s original writing desk, pictures of Mr. Fleming with various celebrities and bound editions of his books."

The single room option is available through Dec. 15 with some blackout dates, and prices start at $2,500 a night.
