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 Hanover Parish
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.

Ideal villa with great staff
This was our second experience at Coconut Cottage and we were delighted to find th whole staff the same as when we visited two years ago — an experienced, skillful team that makes guests feel like welcome family and keeps everything in the house, including the kitchen and mealtimes, running smoothly.
We love the spacious layout, well-appointed rooms (none of the 5 bedrooms are second-rate or ok for kids only) but most of all we love the expansive outdoor living. The large verandah comfortably covers three very separate lounge seating areas and the large dining table. When I craved the sun, the cushioned chaises around the pool were perfect. I encourage the owner to add more photos to the site, because this property is special from so many angles!
We can't wait to return!
Allan, Leighton, Valda, Matthew, Lorelette were beyond gracious, as was Kim the owner. We had our toddler, 7 month old baby, and 70 year old mother with us - everyone was happy! A terrific place for a multi-generation trip.
Don’t hesitate - you found the place!
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
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
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
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!
Complimentary beach membership at Round Hill, personal driver available upon request.
