Grand Elegance Villa, Montego Bay -9 Bedrooms

Why we Love Grand Elegance Villa? This villa was built with quality fittings and each of the three levels has its own private kitchen, living areas and pool table/ ping pong table in the games room are on each level of this villa! There is also a gym in house! Very professional service with manager, chef, housekeeper, laundress, poolman/gardener. Personally, we felt that Grand Elegance was Breezy because it catches the tradewinds, 180 degree views of the Caribbean Sea from the bedroom balconies and quite private. We like that it has a salt water pool and salt water Jacuzzi and the outdoor bar by the pool was nice feature. This owner also going “green” with solar panels hidden on the rooftops! For a total of 9 bedrooms, 3 levels – Each floor has 3 luxury bedrooms and each level has its own kitchen – for a grand total of 9 bedrooms – Fantastic for large family reunions, weddings or large groups that would like to stay together. This villa is over 12,000 sq feet so its living large! Only 15 minutes from the Montego Bay airport.

Seven Seas Villa, Jamaica

Why we love Seven Seas Villa, Ocho Rios! Firstly, the staff is so phenomenal at this villa and this is why there is a lot of repeat guests coming back to this waterfront Seven Seas Villa! Also, this property has a very large lot, so there is your own tennis court, basket ball area, shuttle board and lots of greenery and grassy spaces. There are lots of outdoor living so you have a very spacious waterfront property and you don’t see your neighbor! Best of all, you can go to the waterfront and walk all the way along to the Mammee Bay beach club for great swimming, a beach bar and grill restaurant, and small interesting shops along the beach! This is a gated exclusive community and you are only a 5 minute drive from the famous Dunns River Falls and also lets not forget the famous Jerk Chicken and Jerk Port of Scotchies!

About 45 minutes from Montego Bay, a picturesque drive up to the Good Hope Plantation, a step back in time where we witnessed the most beautiful countryside that most tourist don’t see….Once a working village and sugar plantation, the 1700’s Good Hope Estate is the Caribbean’s first and only nature adventure park with an unparalleled variety of adventures and cultural experiences including the thrilling zip-line canopy, rugged ATV and Dune Buggy adventures, relaxing jungle river tubing, Appleton Rum Tasting, Great House tour, and bird aviary.

Pharos Summertime Villa, Montego Bay – 6 bedrooms

Why We Love This Villa:  Well the staff is number one at Pharos-Summertime Villa!  This is one of the villas where I am so impressed with the owner and the relationship he has with his whole staff. He treats them like family….I mean, they are his family! He honestly gives them his wallet when he gets on island and then trust them to pay for everything out of that when he is on island! Now where do you see that?!  Also, one of the most comfortable family homes in Jamaica with so much to do at the villa itself with basketball, tennis court, swimming pool, gym, volley ball net, lots of lounge chairs for relaxing around the pool. This is a real home with heart!

Starbucks in Montego Bay Jamaica!

Being a Starbucks patron forever, this new one in Montego Bay,Jamaica is my fave as the vibe and service was Jamerican! Perfect ambiance with the right music playing. Great coffee and service with a Jamaican smile. Beautifully designed with a window view of the famous Dr. Cave Beach and great reggae vibes. Such a great addition to the popular Montego Bay Hip Strip and to Jamaica….yes more outlets are being planned!

Oh! Don’t forget to bring your old books as this Starbucks collect and give to needy schools  in Jamaica!  I love the way Starbucks does that.  There is no real accessible library for the folks in need and books are too expensive the folks that really need them.  Bring all you can, especially children’s books.

We’d love to see some of those destination mugs one day for Montego Bay, Negril, Ocho Rios and Port Antonio.  Hey Starbucks – we’ll design them for you!

The folks working in the store are very pleasant and well trained.  I enjoyed having a conversation and discussing the merits of double shots, machiatto, picolo and so on.  While our tastes are different we agree that the fresh roast beans are the secret to the best prepared coffee.

We liked the look of the delicious cakes and accompaniments.  Stoicly resisting any temptation we sipped our well earned refreshments in the cool AC of a well decorated and maintained oasis in the middle of the hip strip. What a great addition to all that Jamaica has to offer.
