Coconut Cottage is a very private 5-bedroom cottage nestled into an acre on a gentle hillside that was the original 500-acre plantation of Round Hill Estate. Set in a storybook wooded lot, the villa accommodates couples and families in three bedrooms in the Main House and two more bedrooms in the Cottage just a few yards away.
Thoroughly upgraded and tastefully redecorated in 2013, today's Coconut is a brilliant testimony that wonderful old Colonial charm can co-exist seamlessly with contemporary comforts and amenities.
Situated to take advantage of the trade winds, the villa overlooks the stunning east view of the Caribbean Sea and Montego Bay. A new pool deck and wonderful fresh-water swimming pool are a few steps down from the verandah and offer an impressive, uninterrupted sea view clear to the horizon. Colorful new tropical landscaping adorns the grounds. Coconut's own organic garden provides fresh basil, parsley, beans, tomatoes, scotch bonnet, mangoes, coconuts, breadfruit, "uglyfruit" and, of course, ackee (Jamaican's national dish).
Inside, the stylishly renovated living room is the center of the Main House. Like all three bedrooms in the Main House, the living room opens to the covered furnished long verandah and that view. In open-space plan, a comfy nook with cable TV, bar and ceiling-to-floor library shelves form an indoor entertainment area.
But mealtimes are also memorable thanks to the very location of Coconut. Complementing marvelous meals is the undeniably romantic view over the sea to the east. After dusk, the lights of passing cruise ships and of the town of Montego Bay across the sea sparkle like a distant diamond necklace. When the moon is full, it seems to drift directly toward Coconut and turns the sea to silver. Mesmerizingly beautiful.
In 2013, all rooms were redecorated in designer fabrics. All bedrooms have state-of-the-art split system quiet air conditioning, ceiling fans and new en-suite bathrooms with bathtub/shower combinations. Hair dryers and Aromapothecary toiletries are complimentary.
