Serenity on the Beach

Montego Bay, Jamaica

“We loved going to Round Hill and to the market!”

We enjoyed sightseeing with our van driver who was a very safe driver and a good tour guide.

SERENITY is one of the most beloved and often revisited Jamaican villas on Jamaica's beautiful north coast. Its prize location is a waterfront acre 8 miles west of Montego Bay.

In Caribbean-style architecture, spaces are defined by airy octagonal gazebos and high cedar ceilings. Pretty blue and white fabrics and cool marble floors are throughout. Each bedroom opens to a sitting area for private afternoon naps or all-day gazing at the changing light on the Caribbean Sea which is practically at your doorstep.

Eye-opener coffee trays are silently presented outside each bedroom door while guests are still asleep. Morning walks down the long beach are energizing. Sunset beach walks are beautiful. Nighttime walks to the point reveal the sparkling lights of the town of Montego Bay across the water.

Four bedrooms and the living room are connected by a long furnished marble veranda. The veranda adjoins the pool terrace, where cool drinks and evening hors d`oeuvres are served under the palm trees. Most weeks, a special treat is dinner on the beach.

Just beyond the veranda and pool, a terraced walkway leads to the second of 2 outdoor showers, lower waterfront terrace, beach and sea. On calm evenings, you may see our local fishermen laying their nets by torchlight. If the night produces a good catch, they’ll return early in the morning with fresh fish or lobster to sell to your Caribbean rental's cook for tonight’s dinner.

This Jamaican villa shares a basketball hoop and private tennis court with neighboring Tranquillity (bring racquets and balls). Combining Serenity and Tranquillity creates a 10-bedroom compound with 2 pools, tennis court, long beachfront and staff of 10. Beyond Tranquility is our glamorous neighbor, Noble House on the Beach, which accommodates 8 or 10 more guests. Combining these 3 homes creates a 14-bedroom compound with 3 pools, tennis court, long beachfront and staff of 18. This remarkable waterfront trio is a favorite for weddings and family reunions. All 3 Jamaican villas are child friendly and very private from each other.

100 yards offshore is Holden's Reef, a continuation of the barrier reef complex that fronts much of Jamaica's north coast. Easily reachable by kayak, this live reef is home to a myriad of tropical fish and corals. At low tide, portions protrude above the water so you can step from your kayak to snorkel in shallow water. On the ocean side, deeper waters beckon the more adventurous or scuba equipped.

If you`ve left your pets behind while you take a vacation, be advised that Serenity is home to our beloved pups, Spot (brown & white Jamaica dog) and Wrinkles (beautiful Rhodesian Ridgeback). They love children and will romp with you on the beach.

To drift off to sleep to the sound of waves lapping on the beach is a dream come true at this Caribbean rental.
