About the property

5 Bedrooms, 8.0 Bathrooms, 10 Sleeps

Almost like an illusion perched on the side of a mountain is Greatview, a magnificent villa in the Montego Bay area of Jamaica. The cliffhanging swimming pools at differing levels make a splendid sight from across the valley. The guiding hand of Greatviews creator and the commitment of its staff are evident in the upscale decor and careful attention to detail found at every corner.

Many features make Greatview particularly family friendly. Take advantage of the media room with library, Wi-Fi access and laptop, fitness room, Nintendo Wii as well as billiards, foosball, air hockey, ping pong and arcade tables. The Greatview property even includes a log cabin tree house nestled between Sea Grape and Poor Mans Orchid trees. Perfect for the magical world of the child, a winding staircase leads to a spacious living room furnished for special tree house lunches, games and crafts. A full staff, including driver and chef, are present to assist you with your needs.

Few villas capture open and airy with the mastery of design embodied at Greatview. The covered pavilion is no doubt the social heart of the villa. Its a great place from which to admire the vibrant colors, birdsongs and fragrances of the adjoining tropical gardens. For sun lovers, the deck over the kitchen offers an opportunity to catch some rays, while partial covering accommodates those who prefer shade. Amateur astronomers can congregate here at night to watch the stars through Greatviews telescope.

The six spacious and stately bedrooms at Greatview accommodate up to twelve guests. The main bedrooms include en-suite bathroom, air conditioning and cable TV. The sweeping views from each are mystifying and the well-chosen artworks provide feelings of familiarity.

Despite its formidable sheer mountain presence, the main floor rooms, covered pavilion and two master bedroom suites at Greatview are wheelchair accessible and designed to accommodate the physically challenged. This luxury retreat makes a perfect destination for multi-generational families or a group of friends looking to get away from it all. Close to many premiere golfing options, there will surely be something for everyone at Greatview!

Greatview is AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days and are already scheming how we're going to get back! The view, the staff, the house, the food; everything is fantastic. This was definitely the best food I've had in Jamaica and the pool and gardens are to die for. Certainly pricy but I would say you get what you pay for and I would go again in a heartbeat.

This was a Fabulous at 40 celebration and it was the best experience any of us ever had. From beginning to end, the process was great. Levi took good care of helping me book the villa but I have to say James really made this experience so much fun! We had a blast planning this trip together. So much so that we thought of bringing him with us. The villa itself was a dream and the staff was incredible, thanks so much for everything, will definitely be back for my fabulous at 50!

Best Week Ever in Jamaica!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family get together at the Greatview Villa on Jamaica. The property is outstanding with beautiful flowers and trees on the outside and very comfortable features on the inside, like an outside shower, that made the trip special. The staff is amazing and very warm and welcoming. They were extremely flexible to our needs, including a 19 month old child and just so much fun to be with! They helped us plan the week just the way we wanted it to be. We would highly recommend this vacation for a family who wanted to make a very special memory. We sure did.
