About the owner: We rented various villas in the Round Hill environs for well over a decade while looking for the perfect home for our family. When we saw Great River House we fell in love with the view of the sea, the extensive grounds, fruit trees, the private tennis court, tree swings and gorgeous infinity saline pool. The house while large is also very welcoming. Our children, small grandchildren in-laws and friends all share our feelings.
