This Self-Catering Cottage is in a small gated community across the street from the beach ( 2 pictures are of this public beach, 1 with a girl and the other of swimmers ) and is only a short walk from Doctor's Cave Beach and the Hip Strip of Montego Bay. Just around the corner from Montego Bay's airport, 1 block north of the intersection of Sunset and Kent Avenues. Chatham Cottages for many years has provided vacationers and missionaries alike a welcome place to rest amid the busy streets and popular beaches of this tourist hot-spot.

This cottage has a living room, kitchen (Fridge, Stove, Microwave, dishes, pots, etc.) with dining area, 1 bathroom and 2 bedrooms, each bedroom has A/C. Can sleep 6 people. 1 Bedroom has 1 twin bed and a bunkbed with a double on the bottom and a twin on the top, 2nd Bedroom has 2 twin beds, the living room has 1 twin bed ( so could then sleep 7 people ).

All you need to bring is your bathing suit and a toothbrush!

There is a patio in the back where you can sip a cold drink while the kids run around in the fenced backyard. A huge Breadfriut tree in the backyard, feel free to pick a breadfruit and enjoy with your home cooked meal right there in the kitchen.

This is a great Cottage to use as a base as you explore Jamaica. Or a place to just relax and finally write that book you have thought about for years! Yes, there is Wi-Fi in this cottage.

Want to explore but can only handle so many restaurant meals? No problem! Because of the kitchen, a trip for groceries and you can cook some or all your meals and make sandwiches to carry with you when you go out exploring! This is great for those on special diets.

This Cottage is ideal for a single family or 2 couples, but can accommodate groups of up to 7 at an incremental rate.

About Debbie

Hi there! I am Debbie. Welcome to Chatham Cottages! I am blessed to have married into a family that has been in the Hospitality business here in Montego Bay, Jamaica for a long time. Below is a little history about Chatham Cottages.

Chatham Cottages

Montego Bay’s Chatham Beach Hotel was built in 1934 by Stanley Foster, hitting its stride after World War 2 as a popular destination for veterans, celebrities, and vacationing families. Chatham Cottages have been operated by the Foster family on a continuous basis since then, providing affordable, secure, and comfortable accommodations for hundreds of youth groups, mission trips, and organizations. Individuals and families also continue to enjoy our peaceful alternative to the all-inclusive scene while benefiting from our close proximity to the beach (83 strides from Cottage 7 takes you to the ocean).

We welcome the opportunity to give you the same warm welcome we’ve been extending to guests for over 80 years!

A guest left this sweet note! -

Mrs. Foster,

Thank you so much for the warm hospitality! We had such a nice time here.

Wishing you all the best!

Kimberly & the CSP crew

Why Debbie chose Hip Strip

I love to travel! And have found over the years beginning from when our children were small and even now I prefer a self catering cottage with space and privacy to staying in a hotel room. I have set up the cottage with this in mind. It isn't fancy but it is comfortable and roomy. Having a kitchen is nice for families and those that are on special diets. Pack a lunch and go explore this lovely island!

** Why this property?

Location! Location! Location!

Yes, this Cottage is central to everything. You can even walk on into downtown Montego Bay if you are a walker. :-)

Do you need a home base for a conference or outreach, or just a peaceful place to relax? How about that book you keep wanting to write but too many distractions at home?

Chatham Cottages provides a quiet respite from the many activities within easy reach of Montego Bay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Debbie, just a quick note to thank you for having us in 7. We had the best time. We love being part of the Chatham cottage community! We arrived back home and already looking forward to our return to 7 next year! Thank you again.
