Allamanda Villa is a newly built, elegant five bedroom Caribbean vacation home. All on one level, the villa boasts a dramatic fifteen hundred square foot great room with soaring twenty foot ceilings and fifty feet of sliding glass doors that open up onto an expansive covered terrace.
Spanning eighty five feet, the terrace affords guests the luxury of enjoying the outdoors in any weather. Play billiards or table tennis, enjoy a frozen cocktail at the bar while watching a sports event on the outdoor television, or lounge on the sofa and read a book, occasionally glancing up to watch the children play in the infinity edge, beach entry salt water pool, before gazing out at the Caribbean Sea.
Three master bedrooms are accessible via the terrace or an interior hallway. Two of these measure eighteen feet squared, and have en-suite bathrooms with walk in showers and walk-in closets. The third master bedroom measures twenty feet squared and has an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower, an outdoor shower, and jacuzzi bathtub. There is also a two bedroom family suite which share an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower and bathtub. The parents (or nanny) room, considered the forth master, has a secure private outdoor garden. The children's room has two sets of custom made bunk beds and a video game system. All bedrooms have been floored in beautiful teak wood, are comfortably air conditioned and have forty-two inch televisions with cable access.
The great room has a seventy inch LCD TV and video game system. WiFi internet is available throughout as well as a wireless speaker system (SONOS) in the public spaces which can stream thousands of radio stations from around the world.
The villa sits on two acres of manicured grounds which includes an impressive play scape for children with swings, a fifteen foot slide and rock climbing wall. Incorporated into the drive-way is a basketball net.
The villa staff includes your own personal butler, a chef, sous chef, chamber maid, a laundress, night manager, and gardener, all of whom will cater to your every need.
Attached to the villa at no extra cost is a passenger van and driver available for day trips around the island, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Furthermore, for families with children ages eight and under we will provide forty hours of NANNY service!
Three Jamaican Dogs live at Allamanda (Petie, Peaches and Plum). They are very friendly and are given free reign of the property at all times when the owners are in residence. If requested, however, the dogs can be kept in their ample dog run during the day and only let loose in the early evening to roam the property at night. Just let the staff know your preference.
Allamanda villa also includes beach club membership at nearby Round Hill resort, perhaps the most exclusive resort in the Caribbean; playground of celebrities and CEO's.

About Michele McDonald and Glen McDonald
We live in Canada, but I was born in Jamaica and have since traveled back for many vacations. As a child my parents brought me back to the island every summer and I have so many fond memories from these times. Now that I have children I want to share with them their rich heritage and help them to create magical memories of their own.
Michele McDonald and Glen McDonald purchased this Villa in 2012

Our group of three families (6 adults and 6 children) had an absolutely amazing stay at Allamanda Villa. We cannot think of a single thing we would have changed. The house is impeccably clean and beautiful, with extremely comfortable bedrooms, stunning outdoor space, and a warm and very professional staff. The food was delicious - far better than anything we ate away from the house! - and Michael, the house manager, was always willing to fire up the blender to make killer margaritas, daiquiris, or pina coladas. Our children played in the spacious yard all day, and we relaxed by the beautiful pool. The owners were extremely responsive to our questions, and so easy to work with from booking through the end of our stay. This was the most relaxing trip we’ve ever taken with children for sure, and overall, a really magical experience.
Thank you very much, we always enjoy getting reviews, especially good ones! We are very grateful you chose Allamanda and we hope you return soon.

Wonderful Family Retreat
Allamanda provide our family the perfect getaway for three generations to celebrate our 50th anniversary. The staff was better than five star. They all greeted us at the bus as we arrived with drinks in hand. Junior, the butler, was always available to answer our questions and take care of our every need. Being an early riser Junior was there at 6:00 AM with fresh brewed coffee and juice. Our twin 3 1/2 year old twins were in the pool as soon as they awoke.
The property is exceptionally maintained by the entire staff constantly and is presented better than five star. Special recognition to Kingsley for his attentiveness to the pool daily and to Michael for making us all feel safe as he was on property for security each night.
I, and my entire family, would highly recommend this property for young and old. Thank you to Michelle and Glen for allowing us to spend time in your home. I hope that one day we will return.
Allamanda Villa was the perfect choice for our family gathering spanning 3 generations. It is just as beautiful as the photos and the owners have thought of every detail -- from the warm greeting and send-off by the entire staff to everything in-between. The villa was spotless and well-appointed, the grounds were beautiful, the service and food were outstanding. It has the amenities and friendly service of a world class resort, combined with a homey feeling that is unlike any other vacation. Having access to the beach club and the driver, in addition to the beautiful pool and other activities on-site, allows everyone to do as much or as little as they want. I would highly recommend this peaceful, private paradise.
PERFECT - all the way around
Allamanda Villa offers the perfect combination of luxury treatment, in a setting that truly feels like home. The staff will pamper you and make you feel like you are in a 5 star resort, yet you have the comforts of home. We had three families join up during our trip, ranging from age 3 to 75 - and Allamanda was perfect for all of us. The membership to Round Hill Beach Resort is a huge asset, and we spent considerable time there. The house is comfortable, the staff is knowledgeable and extremely friendly - it was a perfect vacation. Thank you!!
WOW!! from Randall
Such an unbelievable house to relax in as well as have fun. The kids played in the pool all day and watched movies on the big screen all night. The rooms and beds were so comfortable......having a remote control for the air conditioner (for me) was the cats meow. Including a membership for access to Round Hill beach resort really made our stay extra amazing. I hear that many celebrities attend this resort. Thanks for building such a wonderful house for others to enjoy.
Fantastic!! First Rate!!
Allamanda Villa is a spectacular place and all of the staff are first rate. The kids particularly liked Junior and the yummy frozen drinks he made for them!! Derval did a fantastic job with all of the meals. He made breakfast lunch and dinner and it was a gourmet dinner every night!!
Our party included three families (6 adults, and 8 children ages 2-9). The Villa is large enough, and well enough designed that we never once felt cramped or lacked for privacy if desired. The place was always kept immaculate by the very friendly staff, even with all the kids doing their best to make it otherwise. :) I highly recommend Allamanda to anyone with young children. The pool is very accessible for kids of all ages. The kids also enjoyed the play equipment as well as the video games and other toys.
The driver, Dorman, was very friendly and happily showed us around some of the more 'local' places that tourists wouldn't normally get to see.
On behalf of all of us who stayed there, thanks again for a terrific vacation!!
Allamanda Villa is located twenty minutes drive west from Montego Bay airport in the exclusive gated community of Great River Private. The brand new Villa is a stones throw away from the exclusive resort, Round Hill, where villa guests enjoy beach club membership.
