Greatview

Spring Farm, Montego Bay, Jamaica

This Jamaican villa is one of the newest and most glamorous private homes overlooking the Half Moon golf course, Ritz Carlton and vast ocean vista. Three world-class golf courses (Cinnamon Hill, Half Moon and White Witch) are within a five-minute drive. This Jamaican villa's guests have a special membership at the Cinnamon Hill course, entitling them to 50% discounts on 18-hole greens fees, including cart and caddy, and enjoyment of the club restaurant, bar, golf shop and outside lounge.

The view is breathtaking! The deep blue sea is to the north and magnificent mountains are to the south. Here is the marriage of exquisite taste, beauty and comfort. This Caribbean vacation rental's floors are of French limestone, Travertine marble and exotic pressed bamboo; walls are of Barbadian coral stone and Venetian glaze. The details are immaculate and artistic. Furnishings are an exquisite combination of Asian antique and tropical colonial. The Grounds in this Jamaican villa are lush in orange and lime trees, avocado, papaya, mango, breadfruit, Poinciana, flame trees and delicate orchids.

Six well-appointed bedrooms are complemented by inside and outside dining areas, a snug television den, and an air-conditioned gym complete with TV and fitness videos. A supplemental generator ensures that this Caribbean vacation rental is never without electricity and air conditioning.

Greatview is among the best-managed and best-staffed villas in our group. A staff of 9 ensure the highest levels of service 24 hours a day. Our expert chef presents exquisite meals from the state-of-the-art kitchen with six-burner commercial gas stove and grill, two ovens, bread maker, rotisserie, microwave, wine cooler, icemaker and cappuccino/espresso machine. Chef Delores delights guests with her specialties of homemade pate, jerk chicken, lobster Newberg, grilled salmon in avocado sauce, pecan-crusted snapper, grilled shrimp and tenderloin, grasshopper pie and more. Table service is Wedgwood and Lenox china and sterling silver. Meals are served formally under the crystal chandelier or more casually on the al fresco 700-square-foot veranda overlooking the pool and magnificent ocean view. Because of the extraordinary menus, the Greatview grocery budget is $45-$60 per adult per day and $20 for children under 14.

Staffing at this Jamaican villa is extraordinary. Including two butlers who provide 24-hour concierge service, room service and breakfast in bed.

The large infinity-edge pool flows as a waterfall into the hot tub on the lower lawn. The poolside bar has a television, blender, smoothie-maker, and fridge stocked with drinks. Colorful Montego Bay, the `hip strip` and beautiful Doctor's Cave Beach with water sports and Groovy Grouper Restaurant are just 20 minutes away via driver.

Half Moon with it's private beach, tennis, fitness center, water sports, food and beverage, and dolphin lagoon is just five minutes downhill from the villa.

While numerous balconies and overlooks are part of this Carribean vacation rental’s contemporary architecture, the villa is child friendly. It offers complimentary cribs with mobiles, high chairs, playpen, baby toys and games, water toys, floats, water basketball and three tricycles. The shallow end of the pool can be roped off to define where deeper water begins. This Jamaican villa includes two connecting suites for families. Also notable is Greatview’s accommodation of guests who use wheelchairs or are physically challenged.
