Overview

About the property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths

Coconut Cottage is part of the original Round Hill Estate and is located on the lush 'Jamaican Riviera' side of Montego Bay. A 'plantation style' villa, the house has a spacious, beautifully decorated 3-bedroom main house with a large fresh water pool and a lovely, 2-bedroom cottage for a total of 5 bedrooms.

Situated to take advantage of the trade winds, the villa looks out to a lovely view of the Caribbean Sea and Montego Bay. Private yet well located, Coconut Cottage will satisfy all of your vacation needs.

The beamed, high-ceiling living room, with comfortable tropical furniture, opens to a lovely covered verandah that runs the length of the property and overlooks the pool and sea. Meals are served on the verandah, including candlelight dinners. The cottage is reached by a short path from the main house and has two large bedroom suites with private baths. The bedrooms can be adjoining, making the cottage ideal for families with small children.

Outdoors, the villa is surrounded by lush gardens and rolling lawns overlooking the sea. The private pool has comfortable lounge chairs for relaxing pool-side and enjoying the view.

Only 20 minutes from downtown Montego Bay and Sangster International airport.

Jamaica is truly a world away. Its natural beauty is breathtaking and its people charming and laid back. Yet the internet can be spotty, electrical interruptions happen, restaurants open and close based on the bounty of the day and you may have to wait for one of our neighboring goats to cross the road before you can pass. Time slows down. To enjoy your time on the island it is important you come prepared for this.

About Kim Cohen

We are a Chicago area family of five who have been traveling to Jamaica for over 12 years.

Kim Cohen purchased this villa in 2011

Why Kim Cohen chose Hopewell

After exploring the whole beautiful island, we found our perfect spot. It's proximity to Round Hill (3 minutes away) where we vacationed often and loved - with the added benefit of being a private hideaway.

What makes this villa unique

This truly is our home away from home. Coconut Cottage is a classic 'plantation-style' Jamaican villa but has been redecorated to have a modern and comfortable sensibility. The staff are like family - going above and beyond to always make us feel at home. Our stays are always worry-free and completely relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was an amazing time in your house. Everything was perfect, the house, the staff and the surrounding.

Thank you very much.

Peaceful and without worry

  • 5 of 5

The place was just as it looked on the pictures. It was wonderful to spend time with my family and another couple to celebrate our girls birthday and show them Jamaica. The staff was the best. They are the reason we were so comfortable. Allen is just beautiful in spirit and Dwayne our driver was the best tour guide. I am spelling all the names wrong, but Valda is retiring, we were her last family. Too bad you all will not experience her warmth and kindness. We wish her well and a good retirement. The food was great and they are so accommodating to your needs. My 13 year old daughters loved the place and loved the food prepared by the wonderful chef. Thank you all for making this a wonderful trip. The place is beautiful, but it is the staff that adds the warmth and connection to the country. We will return.

The Lap of Tropical Luxury!

  • 5 of 5

My party of six ladies had the greatest vacation of our lives at Coconut Cottage! The dinners were fresh and full of Caribbean flare, the staff said “no problem” to anything we requested, the rooms were clean, and the house was a dream!

The location allows the air to stay cool and breezy all the time and we had no insect issues in June. The laundress actually washed and ironed anything we wanted and the night watchman was the kindest of gentlemen. Allan, the butler, now feels like family and we were invited to visit his uncle’s farm up the road. The drivers, Dwayne and Adrian, were so kind and attentive. I cannot express enough how loving and fun all the wonderful Jamaicans we met were. The Round Hill beach is everything you could hope for and more too. We are definitely returning!!!!!!

Ideal villa with great staff

  • 5 of 5

This was our second experience at Coconut Cottage and we were delighted to find th whole staff the same as when we visited two years ago — an experienced, skillful team that makes guests feel like welcome family and keeps everything in the house, including the kitchen and mealtimes, running smoothly.

We love the spacious layout, well-appointed rooms (none of the 5 bedrooms are second-rate or ok for kids only) but most of all we love the expansive outdoor living. The large verandah comfortably covers three very separate lounge seating areas and the large dining table. When I craved the sun, the cushioned chaises around the pool were perfect. I encourage the owner to add more photos to the site, because this property is special from so many angles!

We can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

Allan, Leighton, Valda, Matthew, Lorelette were beyond gracious, as was Kim the owner. We had our toddler, 7 month old baby, and 70 year old mother with us - everyone was happy! A terrific place for a multi-generation trip.

Don’t hesitate - you found the place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 12 staying at the Coconut Cottage. Everything was perfect - Allen was extremely gracious and always had a nice smile on his face. Dwayne was absolutely the best driver, tour guide and friend that we made on the trip! We will come back again!!

Fantastic- a great holiday exceptional staff

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about the graciousness of the wonderful staff of Coconut cottage. We were greeted with a cold cloth and a cool drink as we arrived. Velda and Lorilette worked quietly behind the scenes to keep our rooms tidy and clean - each night our beds were turned down and our AC's had been turned on to cool down the room. Each day there were fresh folded towels for the pool. Leighton also made us delicious, healthy meals and when one of us mentioned we liked Jamaican patties they appeared on the table. Allan the butler was fantastic in anticipating our needs and even drove into town to try and secure a restaurant reservation for us - when he found out that it was not open he quickly switched to plan B and found us a new restaurant. He always greeted us with a warm smile and truly made our experience seamless. We also hired Dwayne as our driver - he was very kind and knowledgeable and allowed us the freedom to get to the beach easily- especially since we were there in August inn the heat. Kim the owner was a pleasure to deal with and able to answer all our questions. We were a group of 8 women celebrating our significant birthday! It was a wonderful holiday for us all - thank you to all ! Mary
