Overview

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Montego Bay - Pimento Hill House

Villa, 6 Bedrooms + Library, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-17)

Pimento Hill House is a spacious, private home with a legendary history. The villa overlooks the Caribbean sea and is located just five minutes from Chic Round Hill where guests enjoy complimentary beach membership. It was originally built in the 50s for a French Count and Countess, Jacques and Vera di Sibour. This was a time when Jamaica was a glamorous party destination for the early jet set. Noel Coward, Ian Flemming, the Kennedy's and many famous actors and actresses spent the holidays at Round Hill or at house parties in nearby villas. When Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip visited Montego Bay at the end of their Carribean tour in 1966, they stayed with the Count at Pimento Hill. There is a scrap book of newspaper cuttings in the villa detailing all the famous guests Pimento Hill has hosted.

In the late 60s Rosser Reeves, a hugely successful American advertising exectutive and pioneer of television advertising, bought the villa from Count de Sibour. The AMC program, Mad Men, uses Reeves as the model for the professional accomplishments of the main character, Don Draper (Jon Hamm).

In 2007 the current owners bought Pimento Hill and extensively renovated the villa while trying to retain the period, colonial features. Owned by a family in London, the villa's atmosphere is a marriage of the grandeur of a by-gone era with modern amenities.

The villa is surrounded by 6 acres of lush garden with many water features - water lilies, ferns, dragonflies and butterflies abound. There are mango trees, coconut palms, banana plants and even an old cotton tree. There are also large grassy lawns to play cricket or football on.

Accommodation - 9000 sq. ft. Hall, great room, veranda, study, 2 pool bedrooms, 1 bedroom interconnecting with the study, 1 large bedroom in main villa, 1 master bedroom with 2 dressing rooms (one used as interconnecting child's bedroom if required) and 2 bathrooms.

The villa has 6 full-time staff to look after your every need.

About Jane Nathan

Here we are at the the annual Round Hill 'Sugar Cane' ball (Feb 2010)! We live in London where my husband works as a banker. Our 3 children are 15,17 and 18. We have travelled extensively all over the world but our favorite place to be is Pimento Hill, Jamaica.

Jane Nathan purchased this villa in 2007

Why Jane Nathan chose Montego Bay

In 2001 we booked a family holiday to Round Hill, Jamaica. Our children were 2, 3 and 5. We had such an amazing time, we booked to go again in 2002 and then again in 2003, 2004 and so on! By 2006 we had decided to try and buy our own villa close to Round Hill. In 2007 we found Pimento Hill and fell madly in love with its history, grandeur and view and proximity to Round Hill!

What makes this villa unique

I love being looked after so beautifully by our lovely Jamaican staff. The villa comes with 6 full-time staff - a cook, a butler, a housekeeper, a laundress and 2 gardeners. There is also the option of having a driver. It feels like you are staying at your very own private hotel with complete privacy, peace and quiet. The actual villa and garden is very beautiful. I love to go and see the water lilies and dragonflies in the morning, to watch the butterflies and humming birds at breakfast and to stare at the turquoise sea turning pink, sipping a rum punch on the veranda at dusk. It is truly the most relaxing holiday you could ever hope to enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jane, Just wanted to wish you a happy new year. We had a marvellous time at your splendid villa. Everything was perfect. Pansy is a gift, her culinary talent is extraordinary. We are curious as your availability for next year, particularly New Year's week. Thank you ever so much.

Perfect family vacation two years in a row!

  • 5 of 5

This year marks the second year that we have been lucky enough to stay at Pimento Hill. It is the perfect place to have a family getaway. The staff is absolutely incredible and goes to great lengths to ensure your stay is relaxing/everything is taken care of. The property is very well-maintained and luxurious. It is not sterile like most rentals but has tons of history and an impressive mix of comfort and upscale decor.

From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, everything is taken care of for you. Eric does a great job of making sure that all your needs are met while Pansy makes sure that your belly is full of delicious food :) You even come home with no dirty clothes because they do your laundry every day! It is the dream vacation for anyone!!!

The only drawback to a near perfect vacation experience is the staff at Roundhill (the beach club that you are given access to through this house). They are not very friendly and the service leaves something to be desired. The grounds and the beach are wonderful but the staff has a way of making you feel unwanted. This was very surprising to us because Roundhill is so well regarded but we had the experience both years so it was worth mentioning.

Everything else is absolutely perfect and totally worth the trip! We will almost definitely be back in 2016!!

Owner's Response: Dear Vivian - I am so happy that you have enjoyed a second wonderful stay at Pimento Hill. We love to welcome our guests back and I know all the staff were looking forward to seeing you again. I am so sorry that you found some of the staff at Round Hill unfriendly. It is a World Class resort with a great reputation and should be the most amazing 'add on' to your experience of staying at Pimento Hill. The beach and grounds are beautiful which is why we have chosen to have beach club membership here. I hope to rectify this situation when you return. Many best wishes and thank you for the lovely review - Jane

Everything we hoped for and more...

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a marvelous week at Pimento Hill to celebrate my 60th birthday with 14 of my dearest family members ranging in age from 18 months to 73 years. Jane did a fantastic job helping me organize transportation logistics with 3 children needing booster/car seats. Upon arrival, Delano, our driver, swiftly handled our luggage and ferried us off to paradise. The staff at Pimento Hill welcomed us warmly, the rooms were clean and spacious and decorated with flowers. Our family is quite diverse and the food issues were quite intricate. However, Jane said "no worries" and sure enough everyone's food needs were catered to....at the same time no less for all of us to enjoy big family meals on the breezy porch. We all decided that Pimento Hill's beds, coffee, view, and staff were unmatched. Ralston, the gardener, Pansy, the main chef, and Sherri, the dessert chef deserve special mention ��. Finally, there is the Round Hill club which we used extensively....what a perk! In conclusion, we made wonderful family memories at Pimento Hill thanks to Jane and her wonderful staff.

Owner's Response: Dear Gudrun. Thank you so much for this great review. I am delighted that you and your family had such a special week celebrating your birthday. I really enjoyed helping you to organise everything so that it was all perfect for your stay. The staff are one of Pimento Hill's greatest assets and I know they all go out of their way to make our guests' holidays wonderful. As you know, I am currently at Pimento Hill celebrating my own birthday and couldn't be happier and, as you point out, having Round Hill's facilities to hand is also a marvellous extra! Many thanks and best wishes, Jane

Villa Pimento Hills is Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Pimento Hill for six nights in late January and loved every moments of our stay. The staff was attentive to our needs without being too intrusive. The entire villa was impeccably clean upon our arrival and was kept that way during our entire stay. Panzy's meals were delicious and having Delano as our driver was extremely practical. Guests at Villa Pimento Hill also have complete access to the Round Hill Resort, including the beach and the fantastic gym. Jane was extremely accommodating before and during our stay, answering every question and providing us with many insights and recommendation for the Montego Bay area. In summary, you can't go wrong with choosing Villa Pimento Hill for your next visit to Montego Bay.

90th birthday

  • 5 of 5

We had my mother's 90th birthday at Pimento Hill including the entire family from my 16 month old grandson to my mother. The property is awesome, the staff is fantastic. Pansy was a fantastic chef and the food was fabulous. All 10 of us had a great time. It all was made very easy with the help of Jane who helped plan the entire vacation with her input from where everyone should sleep to the food and answers to any question that I had.

Unforgettable 40th

  • 5 of 5

I had the most memorable 40th birthday thanks to Pimento Hill!!! 10 of my girlfriends traveled from Florida with me to be celebrate and we all had the time of our lives. It began with impeccable communication with Jane. She was prompt to respond to my emails and helped organize every detail. As for the staff, they were all welcoming and friendly. Our airport pickup was effortless and our driver, Delano, was easy going. Pansy was an outstanding chef and made delightful meals. Some of our favorites were lasagna, baked salmon, goat, pumpkin soup, chocolate chip cookies and banana nut pancakes. Eric, the butler, was approachable, friendly and very accommodating. Each bedroom was unique and Yvonne spoiled us with our perfectly made beds. I mustn’t forget to mention the view at Pimento Hill……SPECTAUCLAR!!! It truly was breathtaking and so incredibly relaxing to sit on the back veranda and take it all in. We have never felt so relaxed. We spent most of our time gathered on the veranda soaking in the view and laughing our heads off. It seriously was the best vacation. It’s all about making memories and this one goes down in history!!!! My sincerest thanks to Jane and the entire Pimento Hill staff for making our trip so unforgettable.

Owner's Response: Amy - Thank you so much for posting this review. I am delighted that you had such a great celebration for your 40th Birthday and that I was able to help you organise it. Pimento Hill is becoming a real 'party house' with so many guests celebrating special occasions there ... from birthdays to anniversaries. There is no where in the World I would rather be than Pimento Hill for my 50th Birthday in February! I am so pleased to hear that you had such a memorable and happy time - that's what the villa is all about - making wonderful and magical memories with friends and family in a beautiful and relaxing setting - it doesn't get much better than that!! Lots of best wishes - Jane

Absolutely Fantabulous!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property, excellent communications from Jane, great food, awesome staff for our perfect 15th reunion of 5 families! That's a whole lot of people (19...) to please and we were all awed by the whole package start to finish! Would love to add Pimento to our tradition..

Thanks Jane!

Owner's Response: Dear Anitha - thank you, thank you for this brilliant review and also for your lovely 'thank you' email. If I am honest, I was a little nervous about 19 of you staying at Pimento Hill as this is one of the largest groups we have ever had staying at the house but I should have known that the wonderful staff would rise to the occasion and still manage to look after everyone with the same care and diligence that they always look after anyone who stays at Pimento Hill. When I was staying at the house just before you arrived, I kept thinking what an amazing time your group could have - I imagined all the children running around the garden, playing on the lawns and climbing the trees, enjoying the pool and table tennis and the pool table. Then I thought about all of the adults relaxing on the veranda in the evening and being able to have 'grown-up' time knowing how happy all the children were. I am so pleased that everything worked out just as I had imagined it.... I would love for you to make Pimento Hill part of your tradition and to welcome you back next year. It has been an absolute pleasure corresponding with you, Many best wishes, Jane

Additional pricing information

Notes The rental amount includes all staff at the villa and a driver and mini van is also included for the entire length of the stay. The driver would collect guests from the airport, be available to drive them to tours, excursions, restaurants and bars and take them back to the airport for their return flights.
Guests pay 25% of the rental as a deposit to secure the booking. This is fully refundable up to 45 days before their arrival date at which time the outstanding 75% of the rental is due. Once the balance has been paid no refunds can be made and travellers would have to rely on their travel insurance to reimburse them the rental amount in the unlikely event of having to cancel at this late stage.
