Almost like an illusion perched on the side of a mountain is Greatview, a magnificent villa in the Montego Bay area of Jamaica. The cliffhanging swimming pools at differing levels make a splendid sight from across the valley. The guiding hand of Greatviews creator and the commitment of its staff are evident in the upscale decor and careful attention to detail found at every corner.
Many features make Greatview particularly family friendly. Take advantage of the media room with library, Wi-Fi access and laptop, fitness room, Nintendo Wii as well as billiards, foosball, air hockey, ping pong and arcade tables. The Greatview property even includes a log cabin tree house nestled between Sea Grape and Poor Mans Orchid trees. Perfect for the magical world of the child, a winding staircase leads to a spacious living room furnished for special tree house lunches, games and crafts. A full staff, including driver and chef, are present to assist you with your needs.
Few villas capture open and airy with the mastery of design embodied at Greatview. The covered pavilion is no doubt the social heart of the villa. Its a great place from which to admire the vibrant colors, birdsongs and fragrances of the adjoining tropical gardens. For sun lovers, the deck over the kitchen offers an opportunity to catch some rays, while partial covering accommodates those who prefer shade. Amateur astronomers can congregate here at night to watch the stars through Greatviews telescope.
The six spacious and stately bedrooms at Greatview accommodate up to twelve guests. The main bedrooms include en-suite bathroom, air conditioning and cable TV. The sweeping views from each are mystifying and the well-chosen artworks provide feelings of familiarity.
Despite its formidable sheer mountain presence, the main floor rooms, covered pavilion and two master bedroom suites at Greatview are wheelchair accessible and designed to accommodate the physically challenged. This luxury retreat makes a perfect destination for multi-generational families or a group of friends looking to get away from it all. Close to many premiere golfing options, there will surely be something for everyone at Greatview!

This was the trip of a lifetime. The villa is gorgeous and the landscaped grounds that surround it are breathtaking and meticulously maintained. The staff is absolutely incredible and bend over backwards to suit villa guests. This vacation was perfect from the second we arrived at the villa until our departure.
We loved the wonderful setting and beautiful and comfortable home-perfect for children and adults. The staff at the house was exceptional and really made our trip memorable. We loved the chef! He was always accomodating to the different dietary requests of our family. Jamaica is beautiful with wonderful people. Being able to use the facilities at Half Moon Bay Resort was a plus. We had a wonderful driver who was very helpful everyday.
All 16 guests from 53 years old to 11 years old had a fabulous time! The Greatview Staff made the vacation! The food and service were amazing! We loved the open area and the pool and we spent the majority of our time there relaxing, drinking, eating and laughing! The children loved the pool, the treehouse and the game room! Every meal was delicious! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a vacation of a lifetime! We will be back!
I am an extensive traveler and I have never enjoyed anywhere as much as I have enjoyed Great View. The Villa, made me feel as if I was completely at home, the staff was superior even to my staff at home and made me realize what I should be requesting from my personal staff. The cleanliness and food could not have been surpassed anywhere. Love the experience and I am returning before the year is out. Thank you Richard Spence for this recommendation, great find.
we just loved everything about this vacation at Greatview. the moment we stepped through the front door, we were welcomed by a top notch staff who saw to our every need and then some! the views were breathtaking. the accommodations were comfortable, lovely, clean, and well designed. there was something for everyone in our group- from our 1 yr old granddaughter who loved wading in the infinity pool, to my parents in their 80's, who loved the comfort, convenience, and beauty of the home. food prepared by colin was a treat, both visually and gastronomically… we will miss our daily platter of tropical fruits served outdoors.
this was the first vacation of its kind for us, so we have nothing to compare it to, but i have a feeling this would be a tough act to follow. we hope to be able to return to GREATVIEW, and capture the magic once again!
The villa was beautiful and comfortable, the staff was so professional and personal, the food was so special and delicious and the grounds were so lush making our week of vacation the best ever! It was the perfect spot for our family of 16 (children and grandchildren) to be together. The villa offered so much for us all...the children especially enjoyed swimming in the pool and playing in the tree house (a nice feature). It was a week of relaxation for the adults...all we really had to do was be on time for the meals! We all voted and agreed that we all would love to return to Greatview!
