Location

Car: Not Necessary

We are located in a lovely community overlooking the Half Moon Resort. Are within walking distance to one of the finest resorts in Jamaica. On property there is a Volley Ball Court, A shuffle Board Court & Pool. We have total security & a very fine staff of four to tend to your every need. They will shop, cook, clean & wash & iron your personal clothing daily. No need to carry lots of chances of clothes. We have a fine driver with van to take you where ever you might want to go. He will take you on two day trips and as many local runs as you desire. His price is $600.00 per week. Your driver can recommend and take you to all the local interesting places to see. There is excellent shopping close by and four golf courses. Three are very well maintained championship courses. Beaches are within 10 minutes from the villa. Fine Restaurants are within minutes. The food at the villa is every bit as good as the finest restaurant.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: We are a family of four. We own and operate several restaurants and golf courses in the U.S. I manage the Restaurants; our Sons work The Golf Courses in the U.S. Mr. Smedley designed & built the Cinnamon Hill Golf Course in Jamaica in 1972. The country was at that time under communist control. It was a very difficult time. Very hard to get equipment or supplies. He did however get a hiatel hernia from the stress of working with the communist government. The Government has changed - we love the Island especially the people. The Course has had some changes made. One of the best holes removed and Mr. Smedley's name has been removed from Course. If you play Cinnamon Hill mention the Smedleys to the caddies.

Why the Owner Chose Coral Gardens (Montego Bay, Jamaica):
We have been going to Jamaica since the 1960's. When building the golf course in Jamaica we fell in love with the Island and decided to buy a vacation home. We are golfers and this area is a golfer's paradise. We also wanted to share the Island and our wonderful home with friends and family. We now want to share our paradise with the world.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Skibereen is secluded, very private and secure. A privacy fence surrounds the entire 2 acres. I love sitting on the veranda watching the birds and the ocean. I enjoy walking the property and visiting the fruit trees and humming birds. We are so close to fun things to do and are surrounded by golf courses, tennis, water sports, horse back riding, fine restaurants and duty free shopping. All this within 5 minutes of the Villa and I do not feel the pressure. Skibereen has the most loving staff on the Island. They take such good care of everyone.
