Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Negril - Gatehouse Villa

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Nestled in a garden of green foliage, at the center of a seven mile white sand beach is Jamaica's best kept secret...

Gatehouse Villa, Negril's most private & accommodating villa. Escape the all-inclusives with a private villa right on the beach! There are 4 separate bedrooms, each with a private bath, and a full kitchen. you can rent 1, 2 , 3 rooms or rent the entire villa for larger parties. Kitchen is automatically included with 2 rooms, and available for an extra fee of 35/night if you rent only 1.

Step out the door, pass through the garden and walk onto the beach, right into the clear blue waters. Thirsty? Stop by our bar, Tony's Hut for a cold one as you venture out! For the independent traveler, the Gatehouse offers guests a private paradise on the Caribbean sea.

Two of the best things about the Gatehouse are its location and staff. Directly on the beach, just a few feet away from the water, the Gatehouse's quiet location is near the middle of Negril's seven mile white sand beach. Can't find us on the map? We are in between Charela Inn and Fun Holiday Beach Club. That means that restaurants, bars, music venues and other activities are all just a short walk away.

All of Jamaica's finest activities are nearby, including; snorkeling, jet skiing, parasailing, boating, scuba, golf, tennis, fishing and of course, simply relaxing. Talk to one of the activity coordinators on the beach and they will bring your jet ski or boat right to you!

In the mood for a private party of any size? Ask Tony about his famous Jerk Chicken and Grilled Lobster barbecue parties right on the property next to the bar. During high season, Tony may even cook you a pizza or two in his outdoor pizza oven.

We have not raised our rates in 20 years. Please know that when you request an instant quote, it will give you the price for 1 room. Multiply that rate times of the number of rooms you would like to rent. 2 rooms or more will give you private access to the kitchen with no extra fee. We are happy to arrange airport transfers or tours for you with our trusted driver of 20 years, Lewis. 30/person/each way for airport runs, with a minimum charge of 80.00. Tours to be negotiated with Lewis, and you pay him directly for all services. We also provide a list of things to do/places to eat upon request.

Review copied from Tripadvisor:

This was our third time staying at the Villa and it was great as usual. Tony the caretaker and Joan the housekeeper are so nice and very accomodating. The villa is nice and the beach is just absolutely gorgeous. Tonys bar is the best bar on the seven mile beach...........We hardly left the villa the whole time we were there............I highly recommend gatehouse villa and we can't wait to go back!!!!

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 4 girlfriends stayed here in March, 2016. We had a great time. Great location in the middle of Negril, close to everything. The best part was; it was right on the beautiful beach! The breach and the water were gorgeous!

The staff, Pauline, Tony and Milton were excellent, always there with whatever you needed. They were so pleasant and helped us with whatever we needed. Had a great lobster meal cooked by Tony. The tiki hut right next door was so fun, we were there every day!

The only "con" was the beach merchants; they were very pushy, even aggressive, and some were hostile if you didn't buy their goods. Milton did help us out with this, he discouraged them from bothering us.

We all hope to return next year!

awesome place to renew our wedding vows

  • 5 of 5

Thirty years ago my wife and I went to Negril for our honeymoon. We wanted to renew our vows on the same beach we started our life together.This trip included 7 of us with our 3 children, a daughter in law and my mother. The set up was ideal for us. We each had our own room and bathroom and a patio where we could gather. Our ceremony was perfect. Our children took turns with our vows while Grace Ann took pictures and kept the champagne cold. That was followed by a lobster and chicken feast prepared by Tony. The best meal we had in Negril. The staff all went beyond doing their jobs and became new friends as the week went on. Pauline kept the place spotless. My wife and I usually do AI vacations but we had such a great time I think our next vacation will be back to the Gatehouse just the 2 of us.

Just that one word, 'amazing' defines the Gatehouse Villa, the location, the setting, the kitchen, the people we met - including Pauline (best housekeeper EVER), Diana, Tony, Milton, Mr. Lewis, Ali (the organizer) and Owen (grounds keeper). We will definitely be going back - and that is the best recommendation that a review can have. Thanks to everyone for taking such good care of us.

My husband and I spent a week at the Gatehouse Villa and loved every minute of it! The location is unbeatable, the kitchen is fully stocked with anything you may need to whip together a meal and includes a full sized fridge. At first I thought we would be going through withdrawal without a TV but the place is so relaxing and the beach so close that we didn't miss it at all. Loved the covered area outside and the rooms were comfortable and quiet. My only wish would be for internet access as that would have been nice on the day (and night) it rained. Otherwise, I couldn't think of a thing I would change. This isn't the Ritz, mind you, but it's clean, comfortable and the staff is wonderful! After over 30 visits to Negril, I think I have finally found the place that I will go back to over and over again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback on the internet - they are out of capacity in Negril and we are looking at other solutions for our future guests! At least there is free and paid open wi-fi right up the beach!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a week at the Gatehouse Villa with my family. It had been a dream of mine to spend the holidays in Jamaica. I knew I wanted to be on the beach in Negril due to my friends recommendation. I poured over many options, but the Gatehouse continued to be the top of my list. When I began to inquire Ali was phenomenal and it became evident this is where I wanted to rent. Ali continued to go above and beyond prior to the trip- answering all questions promptly and providing insight into activities and restaurants in the area.

Upon arrival to Montego Bay we were greeted by Lloyd Lewis who drove us to the Gatehouse. He became much more then our driver, Lewis shopped for us and was the tour guide for our sons. Everyone at the Gatehouse became family very quickly - Tony, Pauline, Owen, Milton and Grace Ann embraced our family and contributed to one of the best vacations ever. They provided a secure and welcoming environment.

The proximity to the beach and the comfort of Tony's Hut can't be beat. The Gatehouse provided a very comfortable stay with all the amenities we required, although not a fancy place it was heaven on earth for us. Our sons enjoyed the beach during the day and the nightlife in the evening. I would recommend the Gatehouse to people that want a true Jamaican experience and the beauty of the 7 mile beach.

Right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been going to Negril for many years now and love it. We have stayed at a few different places but we really the Gatehouse because it is so private but also has a bar. The house is nice and the kitchen is perfect for us. We have been bringing our 4 year old daughter the last couple times and she calls this our Jamaica home. Grace Ann and Milton are great bartenders and go out of their way to make everyone welcome. The bar has a great crowd all day long but no one bothers you if you just want to hang out on your chair and relax. We love it and will be staying here for years to come! They will even set up a driver, Lewis, who is great-giving lots of information on your drive in from MoBay.
