PIMENTO HILL - LUXURY STAFFED VILLA WITH ROUND HILL MEMBERSHIP

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Montego Bay

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 14,16 and 17. 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

What a wonderful time our 3 families have had. Teens 16 x 2, 15,13 x2 and 11 all played and explored and chilled, and we never heard a complaint from any of them - except the one we all have: 'Why can't we stay just one more week?!!!' We were busy - Round Hill, Mayfield Falls, Negril, Dolphin Cove...but there is still so much more we have to do...hopefully the next time we come VERY soon. The staff at Pimento Hill has been wonderful - so kind and accommodating. We will miss them! Thank you, Nathans, for sharing your home with us!

Heavenly

  • 5 out of 5
It's taken me a while to write this review because it's been difficult to put into words the most perfect and beautiful vacation that we have ever had. First of all, Jamaica is a beautiful country full of magic and history, and charm. Second, staying at Pimento Hill was the best decision we could've made, as it made our stay unforgettable and just perfect.
When you arrive at Pimento Hill you feel the old world elegance and charm of the house in the gorgeous Caribbean setting. On the day we arrived, we were welcomed with candles lit at the entrance and along the veranda. The house has the most beautiful sunset views overlooking the water through a landscape of trees and colorful flowers. The table was elegantly set for dinner in the veranda and we enjoyed the most delicious lobster with chilled white wine. My family was so impressed! The house, the views and the service exceeded everyone's expectations and they couldn't stop talking about how happy they were to be there. My dad kept telling me that it was the best vacation that he's ever had, and he doesn't normally enjoy vacations too much!
We had dinner at the house every day during our stay and every single day it was delicious. We recommend trying the Curried Goat!
Every bedroom in the house is uniquely beautiful and the house is large enough that you don't feel claustrophobic if you spend a couple of days without leaving. We spent some time in the veranda and other times we would hang out by the pool, which is a completely separate area with the same gorgeous view. You can play music throughout the house as well as in the pool area. Some days we would ask the driver, Delano, to take us to Roundhill to enjoy the beach and the afternoon tea. Other times we would go on more adventurous trips to Negril, waterfalls and around Montego Bay.
The staff at the house was wonderful! Pimento Hill has a team of genuinely amazing people, whom it was a pleasure to meet and that I'll never forget.

We are looking forward to our next trip to Jamaica and staying at Pimento Hill again! It was a truly wonderful and unforgettable experience for the entire family!

Owner's Response: Wow! Pamela, I LOVE this review. You have captured the atmosphere of Pimento Hill House - the history, the ocean views, the welcoming staff and the unique lay-out of the individual areas along with candles, flowers, beautiful table settings, delicious meals and stunning sunsets. How you describe your stay is exactly as we know and love the place - it is our little bit of paradise! My Dad doesn't like holidays either and had stopped going on them altogether until we bought Pimento Hill House which he now loves and holidays with us there regularly and so ditto on that too. The staff is amazing - they are all so genuinely friendly, smiley and caring - and Pansy is a great cook - the curried goat is a particular favourite of many of our guests. Thank you so much for submitting the review. It really makes my day when I wake up and see that I have a new review and that my guests have enjoyed staying at the villa as much as me and my family do....honestly, I have a big smile on my face :) Many, many best wishes to you and your family and I do hope you will stay again soon, Jane

From the arrival to the early morning breakfasts on the veranda.....it was awesome!!! Pansy the CHEF was superb!!! She can cook ANYTHING!!! Eric set the mood at dinner with candles and his wonderful personality!!! Jason and Ralston were awesome....educating us on the many plants and fruits on the acreage of this lovely home!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Carmen, thank you so much for this wonderful review. It makes me so happy to read your comments and hear all about how each one of the staff team looked after you all so well. I am actually staying at the villa myself at the moment with my family (we are a party of 11) and we are also being looked after royally by everyone. I will make sure that I pass on your praise personally to all of them. They are a wonderful team and I know I am lucky to have found them all. We would all love for you to return soon and send many best wishes from the beautiful Pimento Hill....Jane, Pansy, Eric, Yvonne, Ralston, Jason and not forgetting Delano!

An Amazing Experience!

  • 5 out of 5
6 of our adult family members from three generations stayed at Pimento Hill house for the last few days of our Jamaica vacation and it was an experience to remember! I initially thought it almost sounded too good to be true when I read about this property, but it is all as described. The house is amazing - spacious and full of history. The pool, the view, and the layout are all incredible. We absolutely loved having the staff available to us! "Cook" does not describe what Pansy is - she is a gourmet chef! We loved our meals. Eric also took such good care of us preparing the table, serving us, clearing the table and just being such a kind person. All of the staff was amazing and it was so nice to have a driver available to us whenever we wanted him. We also attended the complimentary cocktail hour at Round Hill Beach Club on Wednesday evening and thoroughly enjoyed it - it is a beautiful club. Jane was always incredibly responsive and accommodating every time I emailed her prior to our trip. She also arranged to have a massage therapist there to give my 85 year old father of massage while the rest of us went zip lining (by the way, I highly recommend zip lining with Jamaica Zip Line Adventure tours - it was fantastic). I definitely recommend anyone stay at Pimento Hill!

Owner's Response: Barb - this is such a lovely review ... thank you so much! It is great to hear that you had such a wonderful time. Everybody loves Pansy's cooking - she is a great chef and Eric just has an easy going demeanour - he is calm and kind and a fantastic butler. Pauline is a real find too - her massages are the best and I am delighted that your 85 year old father enjoyed his. I am definitely going to check out the zip lining when we are at the house this Summer - can't wait to get to Pimento Hill now and see everyone there .... Many thanks again and lots of good wishes to you and your family - Jane

Everything you would want from a relaxing getaway

  • 5 out of 5
This was one of my favorite places I have stayed in the world. The Staff was outstanding, The food was beyond amazing, the view was unbeatable, the place was beautiful and so comfortable. It was safe, clean, and serene. I felt like royalty. I would go again in a heartbeat for a couples trip, family trip, and even a girls trip.

Family vacation

  • 5 out of 5
Our experience at Pimemto House from the booking to leaving was excellent. Our family vaction could not have been made any better at the Waldorf. The review before mine took the words out of my mouth. Thank you Jane and your remarkable staff. We did appreciate the grits!

Owner's Response: Thanks for submitting this review, Gary. Myself and the staff do try really hard to make our guests' stay at Pimento Hill House as perfect as it can be - down to getting the right kind of grits for breakfast (not necessarily an easy task for an English woman trying to explain to a Jamaican cook)!!!! So pleased we did it :)
It was a pleasure having you to stay. Many thanks and best wishes, Jane

Wonderful. Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 out of 5
We have been blessed to have the ability to have traveled throughout the Caribbean. I have got to say this was one of our favorite vacations of time. We had such a wonderful time we wanted to share our experience! Delano was wonderful driver and safe driver. He took us wherever we wanted to go. Into town to go shopping, down to Round Hill or to the beach at the bottom of the hill. One of the days the boys went out fishing. Christine and Yvonne were both so sweet and always took care of us, our clothes and the rooms. Every morning Ralston, the gardener, put flowers in the girls hair. Jason was also fun to talk to as well; he was super nice! We are now facebook friends! There is nothing even comparable to Pansy's cooking. Ever since we have gotten back I have been sulking. There are no words to describe how amazing she is. We had banana creme pie, french toast, lobster, jerk chicken and pork, ribs and sweet potato salad. She can make anything you want and it's by far the best food I have ever had! Don't plan on dieting while on this trip because it will be very hard! Eric did everything for us! He was our go to man whenever we had a question. He was our waiter and he also introduced us to new music! He was fun to talk to and hang out with. All the people are amazing. The house itself is beautiful too. We have stayed at many houses in the caribbean but this was by far our favorite. The people were terrific. The views are gorgeous. It's definitely the place. We will be returning. -Brisa

Owner's Response: Dear Janet
How lovely to hear from you and what a super review. I knew that you had had a great time because the staff told me all about your stay - they LOVED having you stay at the house and are convinced that your daughter and her friend are going to be famous one day for their singing and song-writing! Thank you so much for submitting this review and telling everyone about the amazing staff we have and the wonderful time you had at Pimento Hill. It is a great joy to me to be able to share our beautiful holiday home with others.......
We would all love to welcome you back whenever you can make it! Many best wishes, Jane
