Photos and Description of this 9 bedroom holiday villa in Discovery Bay - SUNDOWN VILLA

9 Bedrooms+, 9.5 Baths, Sleeps 18

Sundown Villa is a laid-back, nine bedroom villa right on the beach in the exclusive vacation destination of Discovery Bay. The villa consists of the five bedroom main house with and the newly built (Spring 2013) four bedroom guest house. This nine bedroom compound now boasts the largest number of guestrooms on Discovery Bay making this a perfect getaway for any size group.

The 5,500 square foot main house sits directly on its own 125ft white sand beach and boasts gorgeous, Caribbean-styled living areas with large over-sized seating areas both inside and out. The open-air living room, equipped with both Satellite and Cable TV as well as a state of the art BOSE surround sound stereo system leads directly into a large outdoor, covered verandah with comfortable furnishings that overlooks the beach and pool. The two king master bedrooms sit on the ocean side of the house each with its own private patio. Situated on the garden side of the main house are two bedrooms each with two double beds and one more King bedroom with a trundle. All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning.

The new four-bedroom guest house can be rented along with the main house in a 7 bedroom or 9 bedroom configurations giving added flexibility to different sized groups. The two story structure has four king bedrooms all with air conditioning, their own private bathroom and each floor with connecting kitchenettes making this space ideal for families with small children who like to be close to them when travelling. The décor is fresh, clean and bright, with beautiful vaulted ceilings and a distinctly Caribbean beach vibe.

The villa also comes with one of the best staffs in all of Jamaica! Your whole week will be spent being pampered by everyone at the villa. Whether it’s your butler bringing you smoothies on the beach, or our chef pulling off a full Jamaican barbecue on the beach. We will ensure to keep your room fresh and clean. And the water sports activity guru can take the kids out on the sailboat - they all will do whatever it takes to make your stay at Sundown and unforgettable holiday!

Why Dana chose North Coast Jamaica

Discovery Bay is one of the most beautiful spots on the North Coast of Jamaica. The bay is a small little enclave of summer beach houses for numerous Jamaican families that have been coming here for generations. It's a great house right on the beach that is perfect for families or groups of friends or multi-generational trips

What makes this villa unique

There are alot of options in Jamaica when choosing a private villa to rent but what makes Sundown extra special is our 'family' that takes care of the guests who stay there. You will be completely taken care of from the moment you step on to the grounds at Sundown. Our staff takes immense pride in taking extra special care of every guest who stays with us. From the spectacular meals prepared daily by our chef to the incredible setting that the meals are served by our butler you will never want to stay anywhere else. Have breakfast on the gazebo at the end of the dock surrounded by the gently lapping waters of Discovery Bay, lunch under the cool of the covered verandah, in the afternoon the kids can help the chef bake fresh cookies in the kitchen whose door is always open and end your evening with a gourmet barbecue under the stars on the beach. Every meal will be different and more delicious and stunning then the last.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a treat! We can’t stop talking about the service level and staff of Sundown.



We are all so impressed. And I must say that we have visited and experienced the most luxurious villas in Jamaica, and now after experiencing Sundown, we are eager to sell.



I am so glad that we went to Sundown and you were able to offer us that wonderful dinner experience. We did not want the night to end. Rocky was excellent, the executive chef and villa chef – presented absolute divine menu creations! My agents and I dissected every aspect of the evening and we were absolutely blown away.



We found ourselves comparing it to the most luxurious villas that we know (and last year we traveled to 8 different Caribbean islands and inspected 150 villas) and we place Sundown hands down as number one!



I think Sundown’s presentation wins hands down mainly because of:



· The white glove service



· Excellent level of food presentation, creativeness, and taste



· The timing of the whole meal presentation from beginning to end was flawless



· The physical presentation of the staff, neatness, well groomed



· Their level of ability to carry on conversation and look you in the eye when talking to you and explaining points of the villa



· Yes, the villa is of a high quality in terms of decor, bathrooms, robes, safes, amenities etc, but many villas are this way – it is really the level of staff care and service that puts Sundown over and above the rest of the luxury villas.

Perfect for a multi-generational family!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at Sundown! The highlights of our stay were:

-staying in a house together was perfect for a family of all ages. We traveled with ages 1 to 81 and the convenience of being together while still allowing everyone to maintain their own schedule was priceless.

- Chef Norman was extremely accommodating and kind. He made amazing meals and made sure to fix the children's dinners early at whatever time we specified. We were able to pick any food we could think of for him to make but by the second day, we realized that we should just let him decide and prepare whatever he thought we would enjoy. And it was delicious!!

- Housekeeping. Veronica was so sweet! She was mostly busy with our laundry, beds, etc and it was so nice to have freshly washed clothes every day. She picked up around the house as well but this could have been better. I thought the house would be kept as clean as a hotel with dirty dishes constantly picked up, etc but I would see the same toys, dishes,games out for hours after we were done with them.

Butlers - this feature was one we were really looking forward to. We expected to be waited on nonstop as you are in a resort and expected the enthusiasm and excitement from them to pump everyone up and create a fun atmosphere. It is important to know that the butlers were wonderful for setting up our tables for meals and would help us if asked. Dujon was very sweet and responded quickly and happily to our requests. He would take us out on the hobie cat, bring drinks for the kids, etc when requested. But we were under the impression from other reviews that the butlers will proactively offer to take the kids on the canoe, surprise us with fresh cookies and lemonade for the kids and other snacks for the adults, be creative and enthusiastic about coming up with fun games with us. This was not the case. It was more of a reactive response to help us, which you may be fine with. Trisha was our other Butler. She was the only negative of our trip. Her responses were short and often rude when we asked her for anything. She was not very friendly and did not smile much. Im not sure if she was tired or had personal issues going on, but her attitude was not acceptable.

We made sweet memories! Dana was an incredible coordinator from the start!! It was beautiful, no cooking, laundry, etc was great and the accessibility to pool, beautiful beach was amazing!!! Food was delicious! We are so rested and happy! Thank you Sundown!!

Great for families, not so much for the adventure seeker.

  • 3 of 5

I took a group of 16 on a business retreat. As a participant, i will say that the house set up and staff are very well suited. The furnishings are perfect, common areas spacious and intelligently layed out. The staff was very friendly, the meals where great, and the set up for each meal was ideal for the size group. Not once did we feel crowded, even during the rain which confined us to indoors. There were plenty of games stocked for adults, but if you want any card games youll have to bring your own. Dont forget about the humidity and the effect it will have on the cards after a couple days:-). The water was beautiful and had great scenery snorkeling, and i will say its safe for kids. The kayaks were certainly handy for when someone wanted to get away, and the bay was completely safe. The ONLY complaint i have is that there is no option to walk the beach. The only sand and water you have is right there in front of you. Again, great for families, but not so much for 16 adventure seeking and/romantic adults. Also, there is no town or attractions wothin walking distance.

As an organizer, the villa is much to be desired. Outside of setting up transfers to and from the airport, i found it extremely challenging to get anything done. Trying to set up a menu for 16 people over 5 days requires skills and experience on their part. Through email and phones calls, asking what the menu options are for authentic Jamaican meals that can accomodate food allergies, the answer of "what would you like" doesnt work very well. Ive rented similar villas all over the Carribbean and Central America, and in every experience there are menu options. It was frustrating. Another example was for off site activities. In no instance was the organizer able to set something up for us. I finally started calling the restaurants and tours myself in order to get anything done. I understand "island time" but this brought an entire new experince to light. Once again, very frustrating.

Summarizing, the villa is great, but my first question going forward will be whether im making plans through a service or house manager. No more villas manged by services for me!

Looking for the perfect holiday - here it is

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week here with my husband and 4 other couples. A beautiful villa with its own small beach and lots of outside space. We were so well looked after by the amazing staff of 8, all of whom were so professional as well as warm and friendly. We didn't lift a finger.

A car or driver is necessary if you wanted to go off sightseeing but there is plenty to do at the villa apart from just relaxing in the sun. Since there were ten of us, we didn't feel the need go out at night as we were a party just at home, with wonderful food and a variety of cocktails and very drinkable wines with each meal. Special thanks to the staff for really spoiling us. Every hotel could learn from the staff training that has made this villa what it is - a very memorable place to stay.

A piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Every year our family looks forward to returning to Sundown, a piece of paradise in Jamaica. The staff at Sundown provide exceptional service and make us feel like Sundown is our home away from home. Rocky, Damean, Veronica, and Donna are truly one of a kind people who make every stay memorable. We look forward to Damean preparing one of his wonderful meals, like his curried chicken. Rocky always does a spectacular job of setting up for dinner whether its on the beach, in the one of the gazebos or on the veranda. Veronica and Donna keep Sundown spotless and take great care of us. We could stay at any villa but we keep coming back to Sundown because of the great people. Everyone is looking forward to our next visit.
