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.

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

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!

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.

I just wanted to thank you for an amazing week at Pimento Hill! The staff was outstanding and all 11 of us had one of the best weeks of our lives!

We loved everything from the dinners on the porch, to laying by the pool, to Round Hill and so much more! The weather was great all week as well.

50th birthday celebration in beautiful relaxing home setting

i booked Pimento Hill directly with Jane almost a year ahead of time, wanting the best possible villa for my friends and i to belatedly celebrate my 50th birthday. Pimento Hill did not disappoint! the house itself is beautiful, but also very comfortable and homey. it is well appointed and even includes a very large library of current and old DVDs - not that we could fit that in among our girl chatter! the rooms are gorgeous and spacious and it is nice to not have to bring amenities. there is even a small gift shop which benefits the staff. the grounds are well looked after, the pool is beautiful and surrounded by 8 chaise lounges, a picnic table and some other comfy chairs. the staff very warm and welcoming, and attentive when necessary and the masseuse gave us wonderful, well needed and much appreciated massages and reflexology! Round hill is just 5 mins away and was great for working out facilities, tennis and the beach and ocean. needless to say, with all that, my friends and i all had an incredible time! SO MANY thanks to Jane who was SUPER to work with throughout the year with regards to my many questions, as well as some last minute changes. i so appreciated her quick responses to my many emails! if i had to repeat the experience i wouldn't hesitate to return to Pimento Hill!

Owner's Response: Hi Claire, Thank you so much for submitting this review. I have loved our email correspondence over the last year and it was wonderful to actually meet face to face when you were in London in January. I am delighted that your birthday celebration stay with all your friends at Pimento Hill was such a success - how could it not have been with all our meticulous planning?!! :) I can't wait to do the same thing myself next year! Many best wishes and thank you again for taking the time to write the review. Jane

Every staff member exceeded all expectations - beyond anything I could have imagined. This was truly the most amazing team of people. The accommodations were excellent. the attention to details, the 'little' things were amazing. This was one of the most comfortable homes I have ever stayed in.
Jane - Thank you so much! This was beyond even what I could have imagined. I will definitely be back!

2013 Thanksgiving Holiday @ Pimento Hill

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 29-Dec-2013

Jane & Dominic, our stay and enjoyment @ Pimento Hill was beyond our expectations. Everything began with Airport pick up arrangements. It was well arranged and coordinated. From that point, all details associated with our stay were meticulously orchestrated. Once we arrived at the Villa, we were greeted by the Villa staff (what a wonderful group of people) and after the unloading of our baggage, the first arrival group received a tour of the internals/externals associated with Pimento Hill. It is a beautiful and well maintained property. As you know, the staff set the tone for our stay and they acted as consummate professionals and experts in their endeavor. OUTSTANDING SERVICE!!! Please pass on our appreciation to them. We were able to do some Zip Lining, Mayfield Falls and horse back riding as well as enjoying the amenities provided by the Round Hill Resort. We also had the opportunity to do a tour of the Island, do some shopping, visit one of the orphan homes (very touching), etc.; It was also great just to enjoy the Villa and spending quality time around the pool, great room, etc., with the family, enjoying the wonderful meals that Anndra prepared and Eric so gracefully orchestrated with help from Jason. The remainder of your staff was equally impressive. This was a great vacation!!!!!!!

The equivalent of staying at a 5 star resort and having it all to yourself!

When searching for a villa for our holidays this year we wanted something extra special as this was not going to be a normal family holiday but also the venue for our wedding. Judging from the photo's on various websites this villa ticked all the boxes - big house, nice garden, great view! I didn't think it possible that the reality would differ much from the photo's but was I mistaken - this villa is FANTASTIC - paradise on top of a hill, the garden is not just nice it is beautiful, the view is stunning and the house itself is amazing! We knew as soon as we arrived that we had chosen the perfect venue for our wedding.

As other guests have mentioned previously in their reviews -the staff really are superb. A fantastic group of people that help make Pimento Hill the special place it is. Nothing was too much trouble for them, the food was top class as were the rum punches (although not recommended before a midday trip to megamart), a laundry service that is second to none - Thank you Christine. They made us feel like Pimento Hill was our home for the time that we were there and not just a vacation rental (I think that's what made leaving at the end of our stay all the more difficult......)

I would also like to say a big 'THANK YOU' to Jane (the owner). Thank you for all your help and advise without which I think this holiday could have been quite stressful for both myself and Rob and as it turns out it was anything but. Thank you to all at Pimento Hill for giving us a wonderful vacation and great memories. x

Thank you so much for this lovely review and for the email and beautiful photographs that you also sent me. The photographs of your Wedding are stunning. Pimento Hill, the garden, the view, the flowers, the lights around the pool, everything looks amazing. The staff and I really do want all our guests to have a magical stay and it has been our pleasure to be a part of your Wedding.
Many congratulations and best wishes to you and Rob,
Jane
