About the property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths

Coconut Cottage is part of the original Round Hill Estate and is located on the lush 'Jamaican Riviera' side of Montego Bay. A 'plantation style' villa, the house has a spacious, beautifully decorated 3-bedroom main house with a large fresh water pool and a lovely, 2-bedroom cottage for a total of 5 bedrooms.

Situated to take advantage of the trade winds, the villa looks out to a lovely view of the Caribbean Sea and Montego Bay. Private yet well located, Coconut Cottage will satisfy all of your vacation needs.

The beamed, high-ceiling living room, with comfortable tropical furniture, opens to a lovely covered verandah that runs the length of the property and overlooks the pool and sea. Meals are served on the verandah, including candlelight dinners. The cottage is reached by a short path from the main house and has two large bedroom suites with private baths. The bedrooms can be adjoining, making the cottage ideal for families with small children.

Outdoors, the villa is surrounded by lush gardens and rolling lawns overlooking the sea. The private pool has comfortable lounge chairs for relaxing pool-side and enjoying the view.

Only 20 minutes from downtown Montego Bay and Sangster International airport.

Jamaica is truly a world away. Its natural beauty is breathtaking and its people charming and laid back. Yet the internet can be spotty, electrical interruptions happen, restaurants open and close based on the bounty of the day and you may have to wait for one of our neighboring goats to cross the road before you can pass. Time slows down. To enjoy your time on the island it is important you come prepared for this.

About Kim Cohen

We are a Chicago area family of five who have been traveling to Jamaica for over 12 years.

Kim Cohen purchased this villa in 2011

Why Kim Cohen chose Hopewell

After exploring the whole beautiful island, we found our perfect spot. It's proximity to Round Hill (3 minutes away) where we vacationed often and loved - with the added benefit of being a private hideaway.

What makes this villa unique

This truly is our home away from home. Coconut Cottage is a classic 'plantation-style' Jamaican villa but has been redecorated to have a modern and comfortable sensibility. The staff are like family - going above and beyond to always make us feel at home. Our stays are always worry-free and completely relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was an amazing time in your house. Everything was perfect, the house, the staff and the surrounding.

Thank you very much.

Don’t hesitate - you found the place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 12 staying at the Coconut Cottage. Everything was perfect - Allen was extremely gracious and always had a nice smile on his face. Dwayne was absolutely the best driver, tour guide and friend that we made on the trip! We will come back again!!

Fantastic- a great holiday exceptional staff

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about the graciousness of the wonderful staff of Coconut cottage. We were greeted with a cold cloth and a cool drink as we arrived. Velda and Lorilette worked quietly behind the scenes to keep our rooms tidy and clean - each night our beds were turned down and our AC's had been turned on to cool down the room. Each day there were fresh folded towels for the pool. Leighton also made us delicious, healthy meals and when one of us mentioned we liked Jamaican patties they appeared on the table. Allan the butler was fantastic in anticipating our needs and even drove into town to try and secure a restaurant reservation for us - when he found out that it was not open he quickly switched to plan B and found us a new restaurant. He always greeted us with a warm smile and truly made our experience seamless. We also hired Dwayne as our driver - he was very kind and knowledgeable and allowed us the freedom to get to the beach easily- especially since we were there in August inn the heat. Kim the owner was a pleasure to deal with and able to answer all our questions. We were a group of 8 women celebrating our significant birthday! It was a wonderful holiday for us all - thank you to all ! Mary

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

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!

A perfectly relaxing and fun family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Coconut Cottage at the end of June to celebrate a 50 year anniversary and my father's 70's birthday. We had our two children with us ages 8 and 3 and 6 adults. I researched islands and settled on Jamaica due to the easy access from the Southeast U.S. and tropical "Hawaii like" vibe. It did not disappoint. We hired Dwayne to drive us for the week, per the owner's and other reviewers suggestion. He picked us up at the airport in a very nice van and gave us an informative drive through Montego Bay and on to the house. I would highly recommend Dwayne!

The house was even better than expected. The house and grounds are quiet and gorgeous. The common areas all open up to the terrace and pool deck and lovely views East to Montego Bay. It's luxurious but laid back and casual at the same time. I never worried about my children! There was space and privacy for everyone and plenty of shady places to tuck away alone or gather and be together. My husband, children and I stayed in the two bedroom guest cottage and it was perfect for us. The staff were lovely. The food chef Leighton served was delicious, accommodating and presented beautifully. During the day we would swim early and lounge around then Dwayne would zip us down the hill to Roundhill for lunch and we would spend the afternoon at the beach. Dwayne was just a phone call away. Everyone loved the beach and resort. Dinners and evenings were spent back up at the Coconut Cottage.

We did go on a zip line tour that Dwayne recommended which was a blast and we went down to Roundhill for the Friday Jamaica Night which was also really fun otherwise we had no schedule but to relax.

Kim, the owner, was very helpful in answering my endless questions before our trip.

We all would say it was a nearly perfect vacation and hope to return next year or sooner if we can!

Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

The staff there was amazing. They made the stay so much better. Al the butler was there to assist us with anything we needed. The chef was great. Every meal was perfect. The house had space for all 11 of us and the pool area was our oasis!! I would stay here anytime I visit Jamaica with a group and would recommend this property with no hesitation.

Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

What a delight. Waking to the sound of tropical birds, drinking coffee while watching the sun come up over Montego Bay...perfection! We stayed at the house with our 3 young boys, my sister, and her husband. The spacious, elegant property gave us lots of places to connect for meals, rowdy Ping-Pong tournaments and relaxing mornings by the pool. At the same time, we all had plenty of space to spread out--we never felt we were on top of each other. The bedrooms were spectacular; the beds were comfortable and the décor elegant. That said, I was never worried that my boys would break anything--the feel of the house is one of casual luxury. The location of Coconut Cottage is ideal. We spent many days on the lovely beach at Round Hill, and just as many exploring the island. Hire a driver! Kim’s recommendations are spot on. We jumped off of waterfalls at Blue Hole in Ocho Rios, went snorkeling in Montego Bay, watched the cliff divers in Negril, and even headed into the mountains to get a better feel for the island as a whole.

The real difference between Coconut Cottage and any other property, however, is the staff. From Allan’s warm, affable presence as “house manager” to the spectacular meals prepared by Chef Leighton (go to the market with him!), to the laundry and housekeeping skills of the lovely ladies on staff, we felt utterly pampered. Our boys were absolutely in love with the staff—and the staff was wonderful with them. Allan’s jokes, Leighton’s willingness to send out a PB & J for our youngest along with our own 3-course dinner, and the loving attention of the housekeepers, all made our kids really happy.

The adults loved the wonderful meals served with an incomparable view and Allan’s genuine helpfulness in planning our excursions. Whether you want to lounge on the beach at Round Hill for a week or get more adventurous, you’d be hard pressed to find a better home base than Coconut Cottage! My husband and I are also avid runners, and the area around Coconut Cottage did not disappoint. My morning run through the farmland behind the house was an amazing way to start the day…as were the massages that Allan arranged for me and my sister at the house—divine!

Kim, the property owner, is wonderfully responsive and answered all of my many, many questions with patience and detail. An amazing experience!
