About Patrick

The Cousins were born in Jamaica, and recently returned for a 17th year anniversary get-away. It was during this visit that we found and fell in love with Serendipity. We purchased this vacation villa as a way to reconnect with the Island they love so much, and to share this joy with their 3 children.

Patrick purchased this villa in 2008

Why Patrick chose Montego Bay

We love Jamaica: it's beauty, people, culture and food. It's our favorite place to be, and will be yours too.

What makes this villa unique

The astonishing 220 degree view of the Caribbean Sea. Serendipity has a warm, friendly staff that will take care of your every whim. They will mind the children while you go on excursion, or just sleep in. It is truly a VACATE-tion. You leave all your worries behind when you are at Serendipity. We have the only clay tennis court in Montego Bay!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I would like to express a sincere thank you for your gracious invitation to Jamaica, your encouragement in getting me there and your warm hospitality in your beautiful villa.



I had awesome time and enjoyed all 5 days immensely. The staff were friendly and helpful. Garnett the butler and Ms. Ruby the cook were real gems as their names truly describe. Garnett did something special for me everyday and Ms. Ruby did an excellent job cooking and packaging food for me to take home.



I was pleased to see that Jamaicans were friendlier and less hostile than when I first left Jamaica in the 1960's. I had such a tremendous time that I would love a return visit as soon as I get the courage again to fly the friendly skies.



Thanks again.

They aim to please

  • 5 of 5

The VERY warm welcome we received set the pace for an enjoyable time at Serendipity. The only thing missing at the welcome was singing some Jamaican folk songs & dancing (smile). Ms. Ruby (cook) & Garnett (butler) (we were in closer contact with these 2 staff members) were easy to talk to and make our wishes known. They accommodated us easily, so we did not feel as if we were imposing. All the staff members were efficient, and seemed to work well together which gave the place a very relaxed air. The food was well prepared, tasty & nicely served. The children in our party were introduced to various new fruits & thoroughly enjoyed the pool every free minute. Apart from a little snag on our arrival ( the driver of our van didn't see us & we couldn't find him) our driver was informative-snippits of folklore-and available to suit our schedule. We, the adults loved the view of the sea from our dining area on the patio. Only 1 out of 3 children lamented when she saw how many mosquito bites she had->15. Overall a very enjoyable & relaxing time spent! The property manager easily answered our questions & gave us clarifications.

Owner's Response: Thank you. I am glad you and your group had a wonderful time at the villa. We try to keep an ample supply of insect repellant on hand for those pesky mesquitos but they always seem to be especially attracted one person in any group. The staff thoroughly enjoyed having you and we hope you visit again.

A Must have experience!

  • 5 of 5

Being a Jamaican at work and hearing the expats talking about vacationing at the hotels and villas on the north coast it became an item on my Annie’s List (similar to a Bucket List) to spend a weekend in the country with my 3 children. By surprise from my cousin, I was able to spend a well relaxed and awesome weekend at Serendipity. Being in the atmosphere I was stress free and well comfortable sleeping in a beautifully furniture bedroom and spending time by the pool side with the children just relaxing and enjoying the cool north coast breeze. While I was enjoying nature and the conversations with other guests, I was pampered by the staff members beyond my expectations. Mr. Garnett the butler and Ms. Ruby the cook were very polite and hospitable. The children and I enjoyed every meal served and this was concurred by my daughter’s comments “Mommy the food is so nice, I cannot stop eating it”.

Without a doubt I cannot wait for my next visit and if you haven’t gone as yet, this experience is a must have.

Annie….

Couldn't of been more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Being from Jamaica, I knew the island was beautiful and would not disappoint. Serendipity not only was our place to stay while we were there, but rather our reason for an unforgettable vacation. We spent the week with a large group of friends and each couple had their own space. The staff was simply amazing. From the great cuisine and impeccable house keeping to the attention to details of each staff member. The was no want for anything. The attention you receive makes you feel like royalty. The villas have an amazing view and the facilities make it easy to relax and put your cares away. Not only would I go back I would highly recommend Serendipity to anyone going to Jamaica.

A MUST SEE

  • 5 of 5

This was by far one of the most amazing vacations we have EVER been on, from the amazing (5 star) service the staff gives you, to the unbelievable cuisines Miss Ruby creates, to the wonderful sites you will enjoy by traveling through the country (YS Falls, Appleton, Negril, Rick's Cafe, the caves). We visited some of these on the same day and it just dressed our vacation with excitement. Some days we simply wanted to relax and were pampered with a massage at the estate or simply lounged at the pool while the staff served us whatever cravings we had (Garnets rum punches with fresh fruits were to die for). Other days we went to the beach (crystal clear water, bring goggles to enjoy) or the local restaurants (great meals). Even down to our driver made our vacation enjoyable by stopping at local fish huts and jerk chicken and pork huts. Our family was under diet constraints and the staff even went as far as searching for gluten & sugar free meal ideas.

Garnet saw one of the children was restless one morning while eating breakfast and he took them all for a walk around the estate. The kids loved him and enjoyed the walks. We always had line of sight to them but really enjoyed the love and concern these folks showed for us and our children.

I will not come back to Jamaica unless Serendipity has the dates available. After the vacation, the staff was like our family.

Serendipity did not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

Serendipity did not disappoint! Friendly and attentive staff! Fresh Blue Mountain Coffee and Authentic Tasty Jamaican meals prepared on a daily basis! Scenic Views! Lovely pool deck and lounge area. Being born and raised in Jamaica, Serendipity is an excellent option for those who want to get away from the dime-a-dozen all-inclusive resorts and experience a more pure side of Jamaica. Trust me you will be glad you did.
