About Coconut Cottage - Montego Bay Jamaica

Thoroughly upgraded and tastefully redecorated in 2020, today’s Coconut is a brilliant testimony that wonderful old Colonial charm can co-exist seamlessly with contemporary comforts and amenities.
Situated to take advantage of the trade winds, the villa overlooks the stunning east view of the Caribbean Sea and Montego Bay. A pool deck and wonderful fresh-water swimming pool (heated in the winter months) are a few steps down from the verandah and offer an impressive, uninterrupted sea view clear to the horizon. Colorful tropical landscaping adorns the grounds.
Inside, the stylish living room is the center of the Main House, with large comfortable sofas, a reading nook and a 65” flat screen Television. Like all three bedrooms in the Main House, the living room opens to the covered louvered long verandah and “that view.”
Mealtime at Coconut merits special mention. Chef’s Special is an eponymous Coconut Basa as many times as you want it this week! Memorable meals are created by Chef Leighton and served by ever-smiling Butler Allan. A few guest favorites are Leighton’s BBQ jerk pork chops, bananas flambé, all-day-every-day chocolate chip or oatmeal cookies, and a homemade ice cream cake that kids beg for “just one more time.”
But mealtimes are also memorable thanks to the very location of Coconut. Complementing marvelous meals is the undeniably romantic view over the sea to the east. After dusk, the lights of passing cruise ships and of the town of Montego Bay across the sea sparkle like a distant diamond necklace. When the moon is full, it seems to drift directly toward Coconut and turns the sea to silver. Mesmerizingly beautiful.
All rooms are decorated in designer fabrics. All bedrooms have state-of-the-art split system quiet air conditioning, ceiling fans, personal safes, and new en-suite bathrooms with bathtub/shower combinations. Hair dryers, robes, and toiletries are complimentary.

We loved our stay at Coconut Cottage!!!!! The staff was awesome and very friendly but they were so quiet we almost forgot they were there! Loved the house! So much room for us all and the food was amazing. We hung out at the pool then hopped into the van with Andre our driver and he zipped us over to Round Hill to enjoy the beach and other amenities. It was the perfect combination of private and resort style living!
We stayed at Coconut cottage over Thanksgiving for a family vacation of six. The cottage is beautiful overlooking the ocean from above. Walk up the little hill past the cottage and you will rewarded with a breathtaking 180 degree view.
We just returned from staying 2 weeks at Coconut Cottage and it was the best holiday/vacation we have had. The home is beautifully decorated, spacious and relaxing. We all considered it the 'best of both worlds'.....the benefits of a 5 star villa with an incredible staff and access to a 5 star resort without having to pay the over the top prices. We will certainly return!
Our stay at Coconut Cottage was a complete delight! The house is beautifully decorated, comfortable, sophisticated - yet warm. It is difficult today to find old-world charm updated in such a simple and elegant way. Perfect! I loved my bedroom - you've thought of everything! Loved Round Hill, Coconut Cottage & entire staff. I feel fortunate to have experienced it. Thank you!
Coconut Cottage was perfect for our party of six, which included two young children. We never tired of the beautiful view, the large swimming pool, the comfortable rooms, delicious meals on the verandah, and the quick trip to Round Hill's beach. We had plenty of space and only needed to use three of the five bedrooms. Thank you for allowing us to experience this beautiful home and true Jamaican hospitality!
This house was truly wonderfully. We went with 5 kids and 6 adults, and it was perfect for our group. The food was better than any of the restaurants we tried! Allen and the rest of the staff were so great, especially to our kids. The beach at Round Hill was also beautiful.
