About the property

Enjoy the Royal treatment as you overlook the ocean

You and your guests are in for a unique experience!

Just as Mount Corbett was once the winter home of a princess in the British royal family, you will be treated royally during your stay.

Enjoy getting to know the staff! They are anxious to know you and make your stay memorable. Please ramble around the grounds that are walled for your privacy and there for your enjoyment whether you are sunning by the pool, playing a game of tennis or exploring the gardens. Don't be surprised if they offer you a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice or some other treat.

Breakfast and lunch, also served on the veranda, are usually light but filling fare comprised of fruit, and other fresh-baked treats. A multi-course dinner, served in the formal dining room, includes both Jamaican and American cuisine.

The house has four main bedrooms with a great room in the center. There is a large room on the lower level with 4 beds - perfect for kids. The house is surrounded by a beautiful, wide veranda perfect for relaxing and overlooking the ocean while feeling the ocean breeze. The pool and the tennis court are both steps away from main house. The sprawling lawn is perfect for a game of croquet, or the staff can bring the ping pong table out from the game room to play in the sunshine. The grounds are also perfect for nature lovers where they can examine the various native plants, including many fruit trees.

At night the drawing room becomes a place to watch movies or play games. In addition, the wifi can be used to catch up on emails or video conference with your jealous friends at home.

Consider Mount Corbett your home away from home during your stay. Your only responsibility is to relax and enjoy!

About Jim Anderson

The house is owned by a group of families who love the estate and the surrounding area. It is a place to relax and enjoy the ocean breeze. The staff has become like a second family, and they thoroughly enjoy having visitors to entertain.

Jim Anderson purchased this villa in 1975

Why Jim Anderson chose Discovery Bay

The property is uniquely historic in that it was built by the Kellog family in the 1950's to be reminiscent of the Great Houses on the island. Later it was used for many years as a winter home by Princess Alice of the British royal family. It has even been used in movies. The sprawling grounds are unique compared with other properties because of the large size and diversity of plants, including fruit and coconut trees.

What makes this villa unique

Guests at Mount Corbett are treated just like Princess Alice was many years ago - breakfast and lunch on the veranda, fresh coffee, juices, and drinks served by the staff, followed by a formal dinner in the dining room. The staff will attend to your every need, including setting up day trips, organizing activities, and customizing menus to suit your tastes.

Great house at great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Discovery Bay. The house was very charming and clean. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodated our big group perfectly. It was great to have a local cook prepare delicious meals for us. The Discovery Bay is a great location as it is mid way between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios where main attractions are.

This is a magnificent villa an a 4 acre walled estate fit for royalty, built in the manner of a 19 Century Great House, up on the hill where the breezes stir regularly. Mount Corbett sits quietly on the hill overlooking the bay and close to all sport , beach , and entertainment activities available in Jamaica. A first class local medical Clinic built by Kaiser is located in Discovery Bay. Runaway Bay Golf Club minutes away . Horseback riding, also in the water, romantic carriage rides, boating and fishing, all minutes away. Discovery Bay is centrally located between almost all the North Coast entertainment attraction venues, like mountain biking, zip-line in the mountains, Dunns River Falls, Jamaica Bob Sled, and Plantation Tours, all a few miles from Discovery Bay.
