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.

90th birthday

  • 5 out 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 out 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

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..

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

Stunning and Luxurious Pimento Hill

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from our second visit to Pimento Hill, the first visit was truly wonderful and we had been counting the days until we could return. As soon as we were greeted by our lovely driver Delano, it all came flooding back, the Pimento Hill experience......... stunning luxury. The welcome at the house is gorgeous, waiting for you amidst the twinkling candles in the most stunning home, are the wonderful team, whose warm, smiling service is flawless, you feel like royalty for every moment of your stay. Every meal is so beautifully presented and lovingly prepared by Pansy, her food is so fresh and authentic, we wanted all her recipes to take home. While enjoying this wonderful hospitality, you are sitting on your own veranda, looking out at the most breathtaking view, everyday is a pinch yourself day at Pimento Hill, it is truly special.
The photos speak volumes of how beautiful the house really is, every room is unique and so so comfortable and spacious Our room opened onto the fabulous swimming pool, just the perfect way to start your day in the Jamaican sunshine and with our brilliant outdoor shower, we were living the dream. The gardens are amazing, lush and tropical. Whilst you can see forever with the awesome view, you are completely secluded in your own little piece of Jamaican heaven, there is an old world Caribbean charm that transports you back to a glamorous age, and in total luxury.
If we could drag ourselves away from our heavenly retreat, Delano was on hand to whisk us down to Round Hill for some time on the beach, a spot of afternoon tea and the occasional Pina Colada. This is a wonderfully stylish resort, full of character and charm, we loved it.
Jane was fantastic is organising our trip, nothing was too much trouble, she has a brilliant empathy with her guests and understanding of what makes a great holiday.
We cannot wait until we can return again, no-one could ever tire of such a beautiful, stunning retreat, anyone lucky enough to spend time at Pimento Hill is guaranteed a fabulous, unforgettable experience.

Owner's Response: Dear Colette, Thank you for this absolutely lovely review! You have really captured the essence of Pimento Hill with the twinkling candle light at night and the beautiful ocean view and tropical gardens in the daytime. And, of course, the amazing service and meals provided by the wonderful staff who are on hand to look after you every minute of your stay. I am really happy that you had such a wonderful time and look forward to organising your next stay as soon as you can make it! Many best wishes, Jane

Fantastic Vacation Experience

  • 5 out of 5
We just came back from a week at Pimento Hill where we were celebrating the 30th anniversary of my mother's 50th birthday! The pictures and descriptions don’t do it justice. Everything was outstanding. We were a family ages 10 - 81 and the accomadations were perfect. The place has a very James Bond/Dean Martin feel (as evidenced by their pictures on the walls). The house and grounds are very spread out so you never feel on top of one another, the pool is a great place to relax and the outdoor veranda was a wonderful gathering place for breakfast, lunch and dinner to chat and talk about how much fun we were having. We made several trips to Round Hill, played golf at the Tryall Club and we went to Mayfield Falls for an excursion. Pansy, Eric, Yvonne, Ralston and the rest of the staff were fantastic. They couldn’t have been nicer. They accommodated all of the requests and made the stay even more enjoyable. Delano, the driver, was also excellent – every airport pick-up was on time and he made all of the trips to Round Hill and Tryall and we never had to wait. I would be remiss, if I didn’t mention Pansy’s cooking. It was great – we tried so many different dishes and they were all so delicious – better than any restaurant I could imagine. The owner, Jane, made everything easy and was a great help in planning the trip as making sure everything was taken care to make our vacation so memorable.

Owner's Response: Hi Matt - Thanks for this lovely review. I am so happy to hear that you had a great time celebrating your Mother's very special birthday. Pimento Hill is a perfect place for family to get together - with lots of space and beautiful areas to relax in. I am also delighted that you enjoyed Pansy's cooking so much - she is a great chef and everyone loves her dishes - she should produce a cook book! I loved helping you to organise your trip and always try to do all I can to make sure that my guests have a wonderful stay at the house and so I am delighted to receive your review outlining what a great time you had. It put a huge smile on my face. Many best wishes, Jane

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

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.
