About Delroy Roberts

The Cousins were born in Jamaica, and recently returned for a 17th year anniversary get-away. It was during this visit that we found and fell in love with Serendipity. We purchased this vacation villa as a way to reconnect with the Island they love so much, and to share this joy with their 3 children.

Delroy Roberts purchased this guest house in 2008

Why Delroy Roberts chose Montego Bay

We love Jamaica: it's beauty, people, culture and food. It's our favorite place to be, and will be yours too.

What makes this guest house unique

The astonishing 220 degree view of the Caribbean Sea. Serendipity has a warm, friendly staff that will take care of your every whim. They will mind the children while you go on excursion, or just sleep in. It is truly a VACATE-tion. You leave all your worries behind when you are at Serendipity. We have the only clay tennis court in Montego Bay!

Guestbook comments from the manager

“The Villa itself was beautiful and furnished lovely. The view was awesome from every room and very relaxing. The staff went beyond our expectations and their service was Impeccable! Usually, you can find something lacking or simply not up to standard; Not the case with this staff. Our meals were mouth watering from the juices to the main courses prepared by Chef Otis Williams. Rosemarie and Pauline also were very accommodating with various hats, filling in wherever and whenever needed housekeeping, kitchen, grounds, etc. Last but certainly not least, OJ-Otis Jr. He made sure the 11 of us wanted for nothing and was at our beck and call. What impressed me the most about OJ was 99% of the time he was at our service before we had a chance to call. LOL This was my 5th visit to Montego Bay and the most enjoyable of all. We are planning a return trip no later than 2019 and I'll DEFINITELY REQUEST THE SAME STAFF. I'm a stickler for quality and they served it on a PLATINUM PLATTER!!”

Awesome 50th Birthday Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Serendipity provided the perfect setting for my college girlfriends reuniting to celebrate our 50th birthdays. The house was lovely and spacious - great for a large group - but what really made our visit so memorable was the staff. Very kind and attentive - we felt so pampered! And the food was to die for - the chef provided a delicious spread three meals a day. Re-entry into

the real world after our stay was tough :) We would highly recommend Serendipity to any large group of family...

We loved Serendipity - cannot wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 11 and have stayed in various houses over the years. Specifically also in Jamaica. The house was a great set-up for us with 3 bedrooms upstairs and 3 downstairs since we had 3 rooms being adults/parents, then the 3 below by the pool being the teenagers. The staff was lovely and the food was delicious every meal! They utilized the notes we sent down in advance well, and all was done as requested, along with the various Jamaican delights at each meal. The views are perfect, we felt very safe and secluded, and it was also nice having the bedrooms being air conditioned. And we LOVED having our very own tennis court right on the property - we played every day! We cannot wait to go back to this house again and only hope all the same staff will still be there... Otis, OJ, Rosemarie and Rhinard, as well as Delroy - thank you for a fabulous and most enjoyable stay. And also to Richard for checking in on us from time to time - much appreciated! -The Harris Family from Delaware

Beautiful Property, but things to consider.

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic service by all house staff ! Elegantly decorated. Nice pool.

There are a few things to consider though. Communications right before the trip were just ok....some questions went unanswered, and the flow of information was on the slower side, which made it harder to plan things. Would be nice to communicate directly, instead of thru The common areas are not air conditioned. Because we were there in early July, it was hot and meant we had to contend with both the heat and the mosquitoes. There was always a breeze, but it was still warm. Wi-fi was just ok, and a couple of the bedrooms didn't get a those folks had to be in the common areas to get a signal. Construction just started next door, so noise became an issue. If the common areas were air-conditioned, it would mitigate both the heat and the mosquitoes....and some construction noise. Ensure the manager sends you the ground rules regarding the house driver (i.e. hours per day and what locations/distances are included in the daily rate). This would help avoid any misunderstandings regarding the service. Also helpful would be to have a one page instructional guide in each room to explain the tv/remote settings. The settings are simple, but it would be helpful. Get to Scotties restaurant for the best Jerk Chicken around !

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. As you may know, HomeAway sets rules that govern the communication between the potential guests and the owners prior to the guests arriving to the property. We as owners did not know that there was an issue with communication and will work with HomeAway on that to improve it. The villas in Jamaica with full panoramic Caribbean Sea views like the spectacular one at Serendipity do not air condition the common areas because the villa provides the experience of the tropical breeze and the views. Our listing clearly states that the bedrooms and bathrooms are air conditioned with state of the art quite efficient units. As to the Wi-fi, the signals are strong throughout the house but the solid concrete construction sometimes causes the signal to diminish. We have addressed that issue as a result of your review. I was surprised to hear that you had an issue with construction noise. Our neighbors are building a single family house which at the time of your stay the foundation was laid. I spoke to the spokesperson of your group about his experience with the construction and he did not voice a complaint. I then asked my staff to monitor the construction and send me pictures of the construction which revealed that there was little to no noise consistent with what your spokesperson advised me. I am truly sorry that the construction became an issue but to be fair, there are no cranes, jackhammers, or any noisy equipment. The few construction workers are quite and when I stayed at the villa days before your arrival, my group did not hear anything. I guess they were busy enjoying the pool, the deck, the views, and the tennis court. The Driver's rates are independent of our villa. However, the driver you used has a 14 seater new clean vehicle that was pristine each time he picked up your party. I know this because Delroy the driver is my personal driver. Also, his rates are much less than anyone driving a similar vehicle. He was fair with you but in the future we will try harder to explain the fees better than we have already done on the site. As to the TV remotes, each time we travel we have to get familiar with the television. We were recently in Greece and I actually had to get the front desk to come to my room to assist me with turning the television on. We will make sure the guests realize that one remote turns on the power for the television while the other operates the channels. Thanks again for your review, glad you had a nice time.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

I was part of the group that stayed at your wonderful villa the week of April 23-29. I just wanted to say what a great time I had and a large part of it was because of the outstanding staff, especially Melissa. I have a new best friend in her. Because of her I also have a new skill. I sat with her on two different occasions and learned to fold table napkins in different designs. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay and enjoying what was a splendid vacation.

On behalf of my wife Margaret and our daughter Abby,

Best Regards,

Ron M.

Better than we could have imagined!

  • 5 of 5

Serendipity was AMAZING! I took my hardworking and dedicated staff there for a much-needed break to celebrate our 10th year anniversary. Having traveled to Jamaica 4 times, staying in some high-end resorts that cost a ton of money and left me feeling like I was on a school field trip and thus, missing out on real Jamaica. I was looking for a more personal and authentic experience for my guests and we definitely found it here!

With that being said, honestly, I was a little nervous about wiring money to a foreign country to book accommodations for 10 people that I had only seen pictures of online. However, working with Nicole immediately eased these worries and made the entire process simple as she answered all of our questions with detail and care.

With that being said, the pictures online don’t do justice for this Villa! Serendipity is actually much larger, more spacious and even better than the already awesome pictures show. It is open and airy, simply the perfect balance of elegance and comfort. It is well maintained, very clean and simply gorgeous! The views from each bedroom were above and beyond all of our expectations. As well, each room having a private bath makes it nice when traveling with others. The location is 20 minutes from the airport and was the perfect home base for activities any where else you would like to visit while there.

Furthermore, we were all extremely pleased by the warm and friendly staff that felt like family from the minute we arrived. That coupled with the expertise of our sweet Melissa, the Butler, as she made everything seem easy and simple to arrange our individual and group outings. As well, Melissa made sure she presented every meal in the most beautiful way possible right down to the tiniest of details. Melissa also, took care of us, with her beautiful smile, demeanor, daily surprises and fun whether we stayed poolside, relaxing in the open spaces of the villa, or by providing us with everything we needed to know before excursions to make them the most enjoyable.

In fact Melissa and Earl the grounds man even taught us the real Jamaican way to play dominoes! They say I’m ready for Trench town next visit! What’s more, Earl kept everyone happy with his singing and happy nature while keeping the pool and grounds impeccable Every.Single.Day! Miss Ruby, our fantastic cook went over and above to provide us with the ultimate, most delicious authentic Jamaican menu, which we are all still dreaming about since we left.
