Perks for the Parents

Coconut Cottage Villa in Jamaica offers all the luxury and convenience of a resort vacation with the peace and tranquility of a private residence. It sleeps 10 adults and 2 children. This beautiful spacious luxury villa under new ownership is just across from the entrance to the Round Hill Resort just outside Montego Bay in northwest Jamaica. The residence is made up of 2 adjacent buildings (the main house and the cottage) so it’s ideal for large families or parents traveling with friends, grandparents or nannies. This villa comes fully staffed with a chef, butler, housekeeper, car and driver, security staff, laundress and gardener, so parents can truly relax without the stress of everyday life. Families can also take advantage of the fantastic resort amenities at the on-site Round Hill Resort, known for its notable history of famous guests, child-friendly beach and luxurious facilities. Parents with young children can use the resort’s kids club (for an additional fee) or ask the hosts for a recommended nanny when they want to try out the spa or enjoy water sports at the beach.

Why Kids Love it

There is so much for kids to explore in this spacious villa. Outside, there’s a ping pong table, hammock, tree swing, cornhole, basketball hoop, and the private heated pool with floats and toys in the garden. Indoors, there are video games, board games, and cable TVs in all the bedrooms if they need some chill-out time. There are plenty of pool/beach toys to borrow at the nearby Round Hill resort, and older kids or teens can visit the hotel to try their hand at snorkeling, sailing, kayaking or paddle-boarding - as well as spending their days splashing in the resort pool. The Round Hill Resort offers kids's clubs and the beach is shallow and safe for families - around 15 minutes’ walk or a 5-minute drive. Aquasol Theme Park at the Walter Fletcher Beach offers kid-friendly activities and features and Rockland Bird Sanctuary is famous for its astonishing variety of bird species.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5-7 nights, depending on the season. High season: 19 December to 14 April, plus Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year. Low season: 15 April to 18 December. The property can be booked as a whole or in part (the cottage and the main house collectively sleep 12 people; 10 adults and 2 children). Contact the hosts to confirm rates, which depend on the dates and occupancy. Sorry - no college/university groups as the villa is primarily a place for families and mature adults. Saturday is the preferred arrival day, however the hosts will do their best to accommodate alternative plans. The villa is gated and is all on one level. The residence comes with WiFi and beach bags. Please note the extra fees that are chargeable: 1) Groceries are typically around $60/adult and $30/child per day; 2) Household Staff Tips at 10 - 15% of the total cost of the stay; 3) Van fuel/gas/petrol charged at the amount used, 4) Driver tip at $150 per 5 - 7 night stay. Extras must either be paid to the host during your stay or charged to a card to be paid at the end of the stay.

About the Location

Guests have full and exclusive use of the villa, which is located 20 minutes away from downtown Montego Bay and around 30 minutes from Sangster International Airport. The villa is directly opposite the entrance to the 5-star Round Hill resort. All our guests enjoy complimentary beach membership and access to the amenities at Round Hill Resort, a 110-acre private enclave of luxury villas with seaside dining, an exquisite spa, a fitness center, a kids club, water sports, nightly parties, and much more. In addition to complimentary snorkeling, you may rent kayaks or pedal boats, windsurf, water ski, go tubing or catamaran sailing, take a glass-bottom tour or a sportfishing trip, and scuba dive. Round Hill features programs for families and kids-only activities at the Pineapple Kids Club and 7-Up Club. (Daily fees may apply.) The hosts offer a complimentary van and driver for the duration of your stay (but guests are responsible for gas and tips), including airport transfers and short trips into the resort (5 minutes) or to local shops and restaurants. The driver can also assist guests who want to explore Jamaica, and will act as your personal guide. Take a day trip to visit one of the championship golf courses nearby, or try out river rafting, fishing, snorkeling, sunset cruises, or amazing waterfalls - to name just a few of the island’s activities.

Accommodation Details

This residence has 5 bedrooms and 5 ensuite bathrooms on 1 level. There are 2 separate buildings: the main house features 3 bedrooms, while the separate cottage has 2 interconnecting bedrooms. The Main House: the primary suite has a 4-poster kingsize bed, bi-fold doors to the veranda with outdoor seating and an ensuite bathroom; bedrooms 2 and 3 have 4-poster queensize beds with double doors to the garden and pool, plus ensuite bathrooms. In the main house, all rooms open on to the veranda, and all the bedrooms have air conditioning, flat-screen cable TVs and USB charging stations, plus portable Bluetooth speakers that can be used with your smart phone, tablet or computer. Cottage: bedroom 4 has 2 queensize 4-poster beds and looks out onto the garden with sea views; bedroom 5 has a kingsize bed. These are the best rooms for young children, as the bedrooms are adjoining and can be connected. Hosts can also provide a crib. Outside, there is a garden with tree swing, hammock, and heated swimming pool, looking out over Montego Bay and the Caribbean Sea.

Style Notes

Resort-side villa. Originally a sugar plantation, this beautiful estate later produced pimento, allspice and coconuts before its incarnation as the 100-acre Round Hill Hotel & Resort in 1953. The hosts have sensitively renovated the villa in 2020 with a fresh look and modern amenities, including a gym (with Peloton bike, weights, and treadmill) and luxury new bathrooms, while maintaining the history and character of the property. Located within reach of the warm ocean breeze, the villa and pool look out to an amazing panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea, with exceptional evening views of the stars and the beautiful lights of Montego Bay. The beautiful new bathrooms are all equipped with organic bathroom products, towels, bathrobes, and hair dryers, and guests can enjoy crisp white linens, contemporary pool loungers, and classic Caribbean 4-poster beds, finished with vibrant patterned textiles and coastal-inspired blues. We love the exposed ceiling beams, the traditional 'louvre' doors, and sleek modern bathrooms.

"Originally from New York City and Fairfield County Connecticut the owners of Coconut Cottage Villa are now retired and reside in the Palm Beach area of Florida. They fell in love with Coconut Cottage Villa and Round Hill Resort and are delighted to be a part of this world-class resort and to share this luxury villa with our guests”

Palm-fringed beaches and technicolor sunsets

West of Montego Bay, Jamaica's second smallest parish is slightly off the tourist beat, with classy residences in the hills and near the beach. It's one of Jamaica's less developed areas with fewer resorts and more authentic natural sights. Expect palm-fringed beaches, technicolor sunsets and shallow, sugar-sand beaches.

Wow, we had an incredible time at Coconut Cottage! The entire experience was so wonderful - beautiful location, house, and the staff was so warm and genuine and lovely. The membership at Round Hill Resort across the road was also a fantastic addition, and we enjoyed visiting the resort daily, for a swim, ocean time, lunch and drinks! The food prepared for us by the chef was delicious and such a treat - we felt so taken care of and would highly recommend this special spot to anyone looking for a relaxing and fun family vacation. Thanks Coconut Cottage crew for the amazing week!

We had a lovely time at Coconut Cottage! The staff is incredible — they made sure our family was well cared for throughout our stay. The food, amenities and location were ideal for our family of five. We look forward to returning one day!
