Cannon Cottage - Jamaican Vacation/Holiday Beach Villa, spectacular sea views

Bedrooms 3
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 10 nights


About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bathroom ensuite villa, sleeps 7 persons (Can be rented as 2-B/R)

Cannon Cottage is a spacious 3 bedroom en suite villa perfectly located so close to the beach it only takes a minute's walk to get there. It is located in the fully gated, secure community of the Silver Sands Estate. This Resort has over 100 private Villas owned by individuals from all around the world.

Cannon Cottage has the great fortune of being situated on an incline so it overlooks and offers a breathtaking view of the world famous Silver Sands Beach and, again, is just a one-minute walk to the water. Dining on the terrace provides a tranquil view of the turquoise waters of the sea as well as the beautiful tropical foliage surrounding the Villa.

More about Cannon Cottage Villa: Day or night you can relax in the Jacuzzi with its own waterfall, set among the rocks in the back garden amidst the lush tropical paradise, or 'chill out' in the hammock on the verandah and enjoy the cool sea breeze while sipping your rum punch. It boasts two original cannons from Jamaica’s colonial days, along with unique, original artwork throughout the house.

Lorna, Erica and Barrington, your Cook, Housekeeper and Gardener, will pamper you to ensure that your stay at Cannon Cottage provides memories to last a lifetime. Baby-sitting services are available upon request. The villa provides some amenities for babies and toddlers at no extra cost, including crib/playpen, booster chair, bed rails, crib net, assortment of beach pails and toys, floats.

Cannon Cottage - private enough to get away from it all, or you may wish to join other families, who are staying at any of the other villas throughout the Estate, or at the Club Area, which is the social centre and hub of Silver Sands, which has live entertainment some evenings, including bands and kareoke.

Activities on the Silver Sands Estate: The beach is an expanse of magnificent fine grained white sand, cleaned daily. It is one of the best in the Caribbean, and has a qualified Life Guard. You may swim in the beautiful pristine blue waters, snorkel and explore the reefs of Silver Sands, or simply bask in the sun.

The Estate is a perfect environment for jogging and power-walking, plus there are footpaths linking the roads from one block of houses to the next. With minimal vehicular traffic, it is a great and safe environment for children and youngsters to roam around as they go about exploring and meeting other children who may be staying at other villas.

The large patio at the beach has a bar and grill, and a pool room. There is a well stocked commissary. There is a Gazebo at the end of the Jetty that separates the West Beach from the Swimming Beach - a romantic spot to watch the sunrise or sunset. Also a popular setting for many a wedding over the years.

Activities around and nearby Silver Sands: Certified drivers provide round-trip transfers Airport/Silver Sands. Advise if you need car seats. You can also arrange with the property manager to be taken to any of the many tourist attractions Jamaica has to offer. There is a small coral reef just offshore the beach and a larger one further out. Deep Sea Fishing (or luminous Lagoon Tour) can be arranged as well. Boat hire is for 1/2 day or the full day .... 10 mins west of Silver Sands. Braco Stables, not even 10 mins east of Silver Sands, offers a horseback riding tour.

There is the local Fishermans Beach next door the property. Vendors sell their art and craft during the day and at nights there is Island entertainment to be enjoyed. Its a 3 minute drive to the town of Duncans to the supermarket.

So happy we chose Cannon Cottage & we'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Cannon Cottage & can't wait to go back! This was our second trip to Jamaica; last time we stayed at The Hilton Rosehall (which was very nice) but we really enjoyed this more as it was such a relaxing atmosphere. We rented 3 bedrooms & were happy to to arrive & find it was just as nice as the pictures. The view from the deck is spectacular & we enjoyed the (extremely) close proximity to the beach while feeling secure in the gated community of Silver Sands Estates. The owner, Karen, is warm & welcoming & was very helpful in recommending local restaurants & activities to us. Her staff are exceptional & we were thoroughly spoiled. Lorna prepared amazing food for us & Erica kept the cottage neat & tidy in addition to doing some laundry for us - what an unexpected treat!! We have told friends & family that we highly recommend Cannon Cottage & are looking forward to going back soon!

Fabulous is the only way to describe our recent stay at Cannon Cottage. We were warmly welcomed by Karen, who is the owner, and made our two weeks stay very memorable. Cannon is a beautiful and quaint cottage and is thoroughly updated. The cottage is staffed by Lorna, Erica, Barrington and Duval, who all made us feel at home. Lorna and Erica took good care of us and prepared delicious meals, while Barrington and Duval kept the garden and grounds well groomed. The garden at the back is so beautiful and tranquil and we enjoyed the quiet time spent there. There are spectacular views of the ocean from the verandah and we will always remember these as well as the sounds of the waves. The weather was terrific, the seas calm, the beach clean and not crowded and there were picturesque views of the sunrise and sunset.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Best way to experience Carribean!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to Carribean for 25 years. Cannon Cottage is the only time we have felt a part of the culture while being treated like royalty at same time. The staff, Karen (owner), fellow guests of silver sands all made it so incredibly rich. Tours by Julie who prayed and sang gospel song at our request were fun and very safe. Barrington and Duval took us to local river head to high jump into a rainforest like blue pool. Devonhouse ice cream was best way to finish our authentic Jamaican meals on back deck. We loved Erica and Lorna who made each day feel like we lived hear. They shared their country’s stories as they cooked up the seafood we speared. Glad we cancelled rental car and instead paid locals directly. Snorkeling was good not great but when your at this perfect a beach how can you complain? All I can say is that you haven’t seen Jamaica unless you have let Karen Sangster and crew show it to you. Thanks be to God for preserving all this for us!

Best vacation we have ever had!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Cannon Cottage and it's owner & staff!!! What a gem! The house is perfect in every way! The beach was beautiful and clean, never crowded! Karen was great to work with and a very gracious hostess! She answered all of our questions and was very helpful in arranging a driver (Julie) for a couple of day outings! Barrington (the gardener) was very helpful as well, what a character! He was a lot of fun! Erica was a great housekeeper, she went above and beyond doing our laundry and keeping the place spotless. The house was in perfect condition. Lorna (the cook)was wonderful! She was a special lady who prepared delicious Jamaican recipes. We truly enjoyed our stay at Cannon Cottage...it was the first vacation that we really did not want to leave!! We will be back there for sure, hopefully sooner rather than later!

Amazing stay at Cannon Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Guided by the recommendation of a family member, we visited Cannon Cottage during our recent trip to Jamaica all the way from Germany. After a 45 minutes drive from the Montego Bay airport we entered Silver SandsVillage nicely located directly on the beach. Cannon Cottage is a house not only in a perfect shape but also decorated with art and unique pieces. We had a very warm welcome by the owner Karen Sangster and her staff. They cooked delicious meals for us (for example „ackee and saltfish“ we heard so much about as a Jamaican national dish) which we ate at the dining table set on a balcony while having a perfect view on the ocean. This is also the ideal deck to read a book or simply relax . Having a back problem and being light sleepers, we were pleasantly surprised by the comfort of the bed. At night it as was quite –what we are used from home- so we had most restful nights. The white sanded beach is in sight and only seconds away. You get beach chairs there and umbrellas free of cost. Also there is a bar and restaurant (which we didn’t try) but they offer entertainment and one night we watched the crab racing, a traditional game, which was quite funny. All over all, our stay was very pleasant and a real Jamaican experience.. We travel a lot and not everywhere it has suited us so well. We can definitely recommend Cannon Cottage for everybodies holidays. Thank you!

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

I felt more relaxed in Jamaica than anywhere else I have experienced. For sure I will return as soon as possible. I am in love with the ackee tree and the beach. I enjoyed how our room opened to the hotub in the back and how it offered a quiet break from the ocean in the day. I also enjoyed the hammock in front with the bird songs and the tree frogs at night.

Everything was as advertised and the staff were so friendly it was

Ike having instant family. I didn't have to cook or clean a thing and the food was so good I had to nap it off every afternoon and had no desire to go to a restaurant!
