Overview

About the property

Lovely, colonial style villa with verandas all round and great terrace and views

In one of the finest settings on Montserrat, a very upmarket private development of just seven, colonial style luxury villas spread across some 30 acres of wooded hillside and overlooking the Belham Valley and the Caribbean Sea. Lime Tree House is near the highest point and has spectacular views in almost every direction.

The huge terrace holds an extra large (40 feet by 20 feet) swimming pool with a semi-infinity edge looking out across the sea, a good diving board, steps at each end and a safety ledge going right around for maximum safety.

There are plenty of sun-loungers and a high degree of privacy.

Great Long Term Stay

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I occupied Lime Tree House as long term tenants, whilst I was working in Montserrat, between April 2016 and March 2017. Our occupation will explain the absence of recent holiday letting reviews for the property. The villa is superbly sited, with a large pool, lovely gardens and a compact, well maintained interior. It would make a great base for couples or families wanting to holiday in Montserrat and I would highly recommend the property. A vehicle is pretty well essentail, but that is true wherever one stays on the island. Hank's beach bar, Olveston House restaraunt, Ram's supermarket (main supermarket on island) and the Belham valley are all close by. The property affords great ocean views (Isles bay beach is a 5 minute drive away) as well as spectacular views of the volcano. The photographs and description of the property are all accurate. There are two bedrooms, the second bedroom containing twin beds, so the property is best suited to singles, couples or families with up to 2 children.

And now for something completely different...

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting the islands of the Caribbean for several years now and Montserrat was certainly different! The effects of the volcano on the southern half of the island are amazing to see and we spent memorable days exploring the island and visiting the Volcano Observatory, the abandoned Air Studios and the outskirts of Plymouth.

Lime Tree House was an excellent base from which to do this. We visited for 11 days in early October and the house was very much as advertised, with 2 large bedrooms and bathrooms at opposite ends of the house, with a splendid lounge and kitchen with all mod cons in-between. The balcony soon became our breakfast room and with the excellent wifi, my office for the hour of work a day that I couldn't avoid!

We were given excellent information by Jon, the owner, when we booked and before we travelled and we were met at the airport by his manager, Pickett, who took us to collect our local driving licence on the way from the airport so that we could take advantage of the owner's car (which is also available to rent) straight away. The people of Montserrat are incredibly friendly and we soon got used to waving to everyone we saw and not having to lock everything up all the time - crime on the island is virtually non-existent.

We used the pool a lot and the memories of watching the sun set from it will stay with us for a long time - especially the evening when an agouti appeared in the garden in front of us and stayed there long enough to have his photo taken!

The island has a good choice of restaurants and our favourites were Olveston House, Ziggy's, Tina's, and Ben & Gemma's new beach bar at Isles Bay.

The island also has several (usually deserted!) beaches and the swimming and snorkelling was fun. We also went trekking through the rainforest on one of the several trails that are available in the central hills.

Following the destruction of Plymouth by the volcano, there is still re-building going on in the north of the island to create a new capital around Little Bay, but Montserrat is the Caribbean before tourism arrived and if you want a holiday of tranquillity and a stunning example of the power of nature, then it is well worth a visit and Lime Tree House is a great place to stay.

Wonderful time in paradise.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were excellent. The views were amazing. The pool was very nice. The beach was a short drive from the house and was fantastic. Had it pretty much to ourselves every time we went. The locals were very friendly and easy to talk to. We had never been to Montserrat but we will definitely go there again. I've told everyone that has asked that it was one of the best vacations we have ever been on and that they should try to go there someday. Really only have a couple of negative things to mention and they are very trivial. The house could use some cleaning supply such as dish soap for the sink and dishwasher. Couple of oscillating or box fans would be nice also.

Lime Tree House retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we expected and the owner Jon was true to his word and very helpful and supportive with details about the house and all aspects of visiting Montserrat. We could not be happier with our choice. The house is perfectly suitable for one family or for two couples as we were. Jon detailed every aspect of the house honestly and accurately. He tirelessly answered my infinite emails and we arrived and stayed without issues or concerns. Jon made sure we had transportation to house on arrival which made settling in easy. On our arrival the house was spotless and move in ready. Although the house is not large it feels very spacious as it is designed for outdoor living and why wouldn't you live outside with such an incredible view of the sea and the volcano. We like to embrace ourselves in the local culture of the places we visit but Jon had suggested that we spend time to enjoy the house and he was right. Each day we spent hours discovering the treasures of the island and meeting new friends but most afternoons we would find ourselves enjoying the very large pool and sunshine on the spacious deck. Renting a house in an unfamiliar location can be a stressful event. This was an extremely pleasurable event. The house is upscale in an upscale location and the pictures do not mislead or lie except that until you are actually there you don't realize how beautiful it all really is. Very few islands offer a location with such a view with a pool and so much privacy. The island is small with very few tourists, no over priced tours and certainly no crowds. If you want an exciting nightlife and lots of action Montserrat is not for you. If you want simple, friendly, safe and quiet Montserrat is paradise just as Jon's house except for the wild roosters. They are not quiet at 5:00am.

Highly recommended vacation home in Montserrat!

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in an excellent and quiet private neighborhood with gorgeous views of the ocean. The yard is fenced which keeps the wild roosters at bay, surrounded by green lawns and trees. A very large tiled patio around the deep pool provides an area for social gatherings. The home is very clean, freshly painted and all the screens and doors are tight which keeps out insects- this can be a problem in many tropical homes.

A very special and beautiful site

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a really wonderful week at this property. Other reviews cover many basics – pick-up at the airport, arranging a car for us for the week, facilitating getting a Montserratan driver’s license, etc. Those reports are all accurate; the owner very effectively makes things simple and makes sure one has all the necessary information and support. What really makes this site special is the incredible location, the views, and the large pool with its large deck. From the pool deck, one can look out to the Caribbean Sea and incredible daytime and sunset views. Turning 90 degrees you have an amazing view of the volcano, including views of the vents still active, when the clouds clear. We were enthralled. It is easy to get to a beautiful beach, and we spent wonderful time down there on a lovely beach that we had almost to ourselves. It is also easy to get to the Montserrat Volcano Observatory and learn much more about the history of this volcano and its impact on Montserrat. We explored the island extensively, which was easy from this site. We also loved sitting by the pool at night to look at the amazing, star-filled sky. There is no way to describe the number and vividness of the stars we saw; the memory will stay with us always. We also should stress how nice the house is. It has great privacy and is very quiet. It is well kept and has many new features, such as a recently updated kitchen. There are windows and glass doors everywhere, so one feels connected to the beautiful environment even when inside. There is a lovely roofed porch all around two sides of the house, and we spent much time on its main section, eating breakfast there, for example. Every day of our stay was just perfect. Montserrat is a very special place, and this house provides the opportunity to enjoy all the most special aspects of the island. We recommend it most enthusiastically, and we definitely hope to be back soon!

We recommend a visit to the old capital of Plymouth, evacuated in the 90'ties.

Also visit to the now deserted Air Studios, still owned by the family of the late Sir George Martin, and where the likes to The Beatles, Boy George, Sting, Eric Clapton recorded some of their best albums is high on the agenda of most visitors. For those seeking adventure then a guided hike into the mountains in search of the famous Montserrat Oriel, Mountain Chicken ( Large Frogs) and other wild life unique to Montserrat might appeal. For the divers a search of the old coral reef for fish only seen in these waters might be the climax of a super holiday. Drink the water at Runaway Gaut to ensure your return to the beautiful island of Montserrat.
