Welcome to Almond Hill, a 4-bedroom private luxury Jamaican villa located on a former 500-acre coconut plantation. Its location 22 minutes west of Montego Bay is literally one minute from posh Round Hill where guests enjoy complimentary resort membership.
Originally designed by Prince Kasimir Korybut in 1993, this stunningly stylish Jamaica villa rental has been totally renovated. Villa Almond Hill is a wonderful private Caribbean villa and the marvelous renovation has created all new, extremely chic rooms and bedrooms including elegant en-suite bathrooms. Tall library shelves in the high-ceiling living room house an abundance of books, movies, cable television and 6-speaker sound system.
Down a gentle slope a few steps from the house is the 35' private pool fringed by Royal Palms. The poolside gazebo is an idyllic spot for shaded lunches, perfect for private laptop time and cocktails too!
Almond Hills’ design around a comfy veranda is perhaps one of the most marvelous touches in this Jamaican villa- elegantly perched overlooking the superb nine mile view of glistening sea to the harbour and town of Montego Bay while being cooled by trade winds. It’s paradise for peaceful afternoons of napping and reading or leisurely afternoon tea and conversations. The veranda is a haven for long candlelight dinners served by long-time butler Reuben Riley under the romance of the stars and the lights reflecting from the distant town and cruise ships. Count your blessings if there's a full moon too. An idyllic spot that will give you evenings to treasure and remember forever.
In the south wing of Almond Hill is the spacious Master Bedroom notable for its stylish bathroom with open shower, deep bathtub and special folly, its own very private 2nd shower in an enclosed garden. There are two new outdoor showers, another of which is by the pool. The other state-of-the-art bedrooms are equally spacious and all bedrooms open to the lawns, gardens and wonderful view. Other al fresco sleeping accommodations are readily available as well.
While extraordinarily private behind its iron entrance gates and not actually within Round Hill proper, Almond Hill is situated in the Round Hill Estate, a one-minute drive from the Round Hill gate house, hotel, beach club and excellent Continental restaurant. Each week, two themed beach party buffets welcome Almond Hill guests for various fees.
If you left your pets behind while you take a vacation, you’ll be happy to find some lovable family dogs in Almond Hill who are granted free run of the house and grounds. Dervy, Button and Survivor are so friendly and fun. Cocoa is more of a sleeper and basks in the lovable lazy environment of this Jamaican home. They all love guests!

Enclosed by a cradle of hills with stunning views of the western coastline, Montego Bay’s lovely beaches are just one of the reasons why it is so popular. Montego Bay is a busy place with the centre of activity centred along Gloucester Avenue which has been renamed the “Hip Strip”, bars, restaurants and gift shops line most of the avenue. The strip ends with the infamous Margaritaville and soon after this you will come to Montego Bay’s most famous beach called Doctor’s Cave Beach. At the end of the hip Strip, the sea emerges once again with a lovely stretch of beach with some great snorkelling.
Downtown Montego Bay is not touristy but great to visit if you want to get a flavour of local Jamaican culture. It can be quite chaotic and colourful with lots of fruit and vegetable markets and local shops
A special amenity available to guests in this villa is membership at Round Hill ... just minutes from the villa and one of the finest private resorts on Jamaica's North Coast. Round Hill offers a jogging trail, gift shop, logo shop, beach bar, piano bar, Wednesday Manager's Cocktail Party, Continental cuisine in the hotel restaurant ... and unforgettable long sunsets from the waterfront terrace. For additional charges, members may enjoy the spa, tennis courts, Pineapple Kids Club, fitness center, a range of water sports and parties (Monday beach party and Friday Jamaica Night).
