The House

Harmony lives here...the house keeps you in touch with the surrounding elements in such subtle ways that you wonder why you feel so good . A spacious veranda waits to accommodate your drifting moods and a large green cushion of a lawn extends down to your own private beach cove. Here, you can decide whether to launch off in to the crystal blue seas using the kayaks perched by your side, or just melt gently into the warm caribbean sea.

The Grounds

Centering the garden is a huge sea grape tree, from which the house has fetched its name. With its broad leaves and natural canopy extending to the edge of a rock crested pool. You can rest blissfully in a shaded hammock. while observing your children at play. Behind the house is a private tennis court which may be lit for games in the cool of the night.

The Rooms

There are three bedrooms in the main house ~ two upstairs, one downstairs. Cheerful colours and tasteful art play on the walls. In the adjacent cottage, just a couple steps away from the front entrance lay two smaller bedrooms. Seagrapes manages to maintain that warm homelike feeling while also being an extraordinary place - nothing overstated, but everything in balance - like the sea, sun and wind..

The Location

Seagrapes is a 60 minute ride along the scenic North Coast Highway. Just enough time to let you unwind and take a look at your new surroundings. As you pass through small villages and quaint countryside shops you are carefully being transported into the vacation of which dream are made.

The Staff

With staff gracefully appearing at the perfect moment to address your needs, you may dare to say that Seagrapes offers something unique - a magical world, all of its own.

The Location

Seagrapes is a 40 minute ride along the scenic North Coast Highway. Just enough time to let you unwind and take a look at your new surroundings. As you pass through small villages and quaint countryside shops you are carefully being transported into the vacation of which dream are made.

The Staff

The staff are the soul of any villa. It is often your villa staff, with their lively humour and willing ways that you remember most fondly about your entire villa experience.

Your butler is Robbie, who discretely appears at the right moment with your drink in the evening and resurfaces in the early morning tending to your garden in an entirely different role.

Your house keeper, Laura Lee , always has a ready smile during any part of her lovingly attentive work keeping up with your family holiday.

Blossom, your assistant housekeeper, whom you are not sure if she is really there until you ask for her, them she appears before you know it.

Kurline - the house manager.

Nothing passes Kurline unnoticed. She has a keen eye on everything that will keep your holiday running seamlessly.

She operates quietly from the kitchen , but is firmly in charge as she defines the next flavour you are about to experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are back, and it was incredible! We had the best time - nobody wanted to leave. See the attached photos. The villa was great, the staff was great and the food was out of this world. We did not eat out one time - not one!! Why would we!?

Kurline, Robbie, Laura Lee and Blossom were outstanding. I know I gained 10 lbs will I was there. We had grilled mahi mahi the first night - awesome! We did not think each meal could be any better, but we were wrong!



Each morning, fresh fruit and great Jamaican coffee. And Robbie kept the drinks coming all day - my kids loved that (Meg & I did too!!).



The snorkeling out front was great as well -- I found and brought home many shells and treasures. I know that I was in the water at least 3 hours a day -- only stopping to eat a great meal or consume a cool, refreshing beverage made by Robbie - life was good!!



What a great place - we are already looking at the calendar for our return trip and several friends are inquiring as well.

The Harts called to check on us a couple of times as well, which we appreciated very much.



It was nice knowing they were available if need be.



Thank you for all that you did. When you come to Greensboro, let us know so that we can show you more photos. Thank you.

Perfect Island Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a week in Discovery Bay with 4 friends. SeaGrapes was just the escape from the cold we needed! The villa is comfortable and relaxed and the staff could not have been more helpful and attentive. From the hot thermos of coffee ready when we woke up in the morning, to the cold thermos of water by our beds at night, we felt pampered all day long. We ate dinner under the beach side gazebo two of the nights and Robbie made awesome Margaritas or Rum Punch at sunset. We love to swim and to paddle board and the water was calm and crystal clear except for one day when there was a bit of a swell. Great vacation!!

good at the end, but frustrating moments

  • 2 of 5

I must start by saying that the entire staff at Sea Grapes are incredible. Carleen, Robbie, Laura-Lee, Blossom and George were fabulous. It must be said that what we received was not what we expected. This is another case where a professional photographer (and photos from years ago) can make something look much better than it really is. The home is nice. It's basic but nice. It is clean, thanks to the hard work of the staff. The view is not at all what you would want in a Jamaica vacation retreat; you see a giant 700 foot rusted steel ship across the small bay, which is docket at a commercial shipping yard where the Bauxite that is refined on the hillside across the bay is loaded. Above that are smoke stacks and a rail system leading between the ship and the processing plant, also on the hillside. This is not a "Jamaica Vacation View", rather a view of what Discovery Bay really is; a commercial shipping port. On top of that we got to watch a commercial dredging unit that has been there for 11 months dig away at the sea bottom, again right in front of the house and in plane sight. I had serous words with the owner, Sheila, after she "requested that her contractor look at the home" during our stay, which was taken by her as permission to send construction workers to the home for the first 4 days to work on her home improvements. I complained, but it continued. Then, when she pushed so far as to have them in the gest house I got angry and insisted that she and they finally leave. She finally complied. Later she did apologize and they even paid for some food for the rest of the trip. I suspect that based on her skill in asking and tact we are not the first to experience this major issue. I caution renters that they get in writing that they will not have to deal with this as she is manipulative and friendly to the point of taking advantage. We had no hot water for two days, and was told due to the lack of sunshine the solar heater wasn't giving hot water. We had to insist that they turn on the electric heater. This is beyond me how that can be ok. Like your sleep? Forget it! Across the bay is a nightclub that blasts music until 2am weekdays and 5am Friday/Saturday. I couldn't sleep in spite of taking a sleeping pill to get over the noise. We will return to Jamaica and rent a staffed Villa but we will not be returning to this property due to all the reasons stated above. I caution shoppers, this is not what you think it is based on what you see on the website

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at Seagrapes. We concur that our staff are wonderful and normally our villa receives rave reviews, over 30% of our guests are repeat visitors. Discovery Bay is a beautiful harbor and a marine sanctuary. While there is a shipping dock that receives a ship or two a week at the opposite end of the harbor, the bay is wide, deep and protected. The water is crystal clear and perfect for the watersports we offer: paddleboarding, kayaking and snorkeling. This is the only complaint we have received regarding this issue. We do acknowledge and sincerely apologized for some renovation work we were doing during your stay. We had believed that as it was mostly on an area that you were not using it would not disturb you. Regrettably this was not the case. As soon as you brought it to our attention, we had the workmen stop immediately, we offered you a daylong excursion in consideration for the disturbance, and as this was not of interest, we advised the staff you were not to pay for any additional food, wine or drink during the second week of your stay. Your personal email to us said that you felt you had been able to convey your expectations clearly to us and that “as a result the rest of our stay was very nice.” In our twenty years of renting Seagrapes, this is our first negative review. We want you to know that we take your complaint seriously and we very much hope it was overall a positive family vacation for you.

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation included my family of 4, as well as my parents & my niece and her husband. Our ages range from 11 to 73 and every one of us said that was our dream vacation....even my 13 year old daughter had a smile every day! The house was wonderful (pictures don't do it justice) and the staff was attentive, warm, friendly, and overall outstanding. My children spent time in the kitchen with Kurline almost every day cooking cookies, muffins, cakes, etc. Robbie always knew when to show up with a Red Stripe, Rum punch, for the adults or a popsicle for the kids. The food was incredible. I highly recommend going to the market with Kurline. We hope to make this an annual trip.

A special place

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to SeaGrapes and it has exceeded our expectations once again.

This is a lovely property with many activities to keep an energetic family busy or let them unwind and let go. There are kayaks, paddle boards, a tennis court and a great reef nearby for snorkeling. The staff is very welcoming. They make the table up each night to look like a celebration! Fresh flowers and colorful linens which set the stage for the terrific food! You will be well fed so come hungry! The menu ranges from traditional fare to tenderloin and mashed potatoes. We even had fresh octopus (sea cat)! This year we were happy to host a wedding on the property and it was a beautiful affair which the staff catered. I cant recommend enough.

An island haven

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 glorious days at Seagrapes. The villa is spectacular with a beautiful private beach with incredible snorkelling opportunities right off the beach. The staff were so attentive to every detail. The food was utterly delicious and our every request was met. The wonderful cook was able to adapt menus to accommodate any dietary requirements. The butler served drinks throughout the day and night at our request including island specialities like Pina Colada, Rum Punch, and Strawberry Daiquiris. Our kids had a blast in the pool, in the ocean, on the kayaks, playing tennis, volley ball, and snorkelling. And there was a great selection of DVDs and board games for relaxing in the evening. The location is close to Montego Bay (45 minutes) and attractions like Dunns River Falls (45 minutes) in case you want to leave for a day. But the villa is so exceptionally wonderful, we had little incentive to leave. We highly recommend this villa for anyone looking to escape the daily grind, have fun, kick back and unwind!
