About Elsewhere by the Sea, Montego Bay

My husband is from Jamaica and I lived there for nearly 20 years. We moved to the US about 12 years ago but continue to visit friends and family on a regular basis.

Why Elsewhere by the Sea, Montego Bay chose Montego Bay

We built this property about 20 years ago and we were one of the first two or three houses occupied when Lagoons was built. At the time, we had three small children and it was a wonderful place to raise a family. When work and education took us to the US, we rented the property long term to a family. In 2014, we completely remodeled the house and added a pool for villa rentals. We still enjoy visiting with our children and find it a very special place for family to relax and reconnect. We hope you do to!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We just spent a week in paradise. The villa is beautiful, the location is perfect and the staff is FANTASTIC! Kassandra, Delores, Kemoy and John all took care of us like family.



Can't wait to go back!

Simply Amazing. Fantastic Week.

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect way to enjoy Jamaica.

The House:

- Stunning. Comfortable. High end. Everything was perfect. You will spend most of your time in the outdoor living space. Enjoying the pool, the lagoon, the beach.

- The towels, the place settings, the flowers, everything was just so well done.

The Service:

- Lovely. The staff was simply a joy. Delores took great care of our needs. Kassandra cooked fabulous meals (better than any restaurant). Kemoy set up fantastic meals on the breach, on the dock, in the outdoor space. John took care of the gardens.

- Meals. Worth mentioning again. Kassandra is a tremendous chef. She made us local dishes that were absolutely delicious. Great morning coffee as well.

The Experience:

- We were eight very happy adults in the space. We enjoyed the lagoon for swimming and Kayaking, the dock for our morning coffee and admiring the sea life, the tennis courts and the community.

- We felt at home, pampered and relaxed.

Don't miss this house. It's one of the best vacation spots ever.

All the best to the wonderful team there! It was a joy!

Amazing house, Amazing Staff, Will Return!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 12, ranging from 1 - 95 years old stayed the week of Thanksgiving. 2017. We booked this house due to the 5 star reviews and all the reviews were spot on. We had a vacation of a lifetime staying here at elsewhere!

While the house and amenities were great, the staff made our vacation! Cassandra the cook made the best meals we have ever eaten. No need to eat out. Delores the housekeeper always had the house super clean, clean clothes the moment you dropped them in the hamper, and stayed up late to let us in at night be sure we were home safely. Kemoy the butler does it all. I never thought I'd want a butler around all from 8am-9pm but boy was it awesome. He works non-stop setting table, cleaning the table, making awesome mixed drinks, arranging taxis and tours for you. Whatever you need he was there to help. John the groundkeeper was there bright and early making sure the yard was perfect and even raked the beach every morning. The entire staff of (4) went above and beyond and our family was so greatful! If you are worried about having people around all day, do not worry... John is there only early morning, and Cassandra is always cooking, while Kemoy and Delores are working. They do their work and do not interfere but right there when you want something. We will return to this house due to the great service we had.

The house itself is amazing. Positioned on the water there in Montego Bay with your own private beach. We loved the outdoor patio space which was huge! Nice to have the bar and T.V as some of use choose to watch football games in the afternoon while lounging in the pool. The house was extremely clean and beds were super comfy and your own A/C in each room. It was great having all of our meals on the very large table on the patio watching the sunsets. Lots of fans in the house so there was always a breeze. House is very close to everything. The pool was clean and felt great, nice to go kayaking too!

Tours - We did Dunns River Falls, Snorking & Parasailing & they picked us up right off the dock at the house which was super convenient. Rose Hall Ghost Tour, shopping at straw market, Doctors Cove beach and MargaritaVille, Massages at the house, bamboo river ride. We also had fun at the casino, heads up no dealers all electronic. They all were lots of fun.

Overall our family of 12 ranging from 1-95 in age gave this house a 5 stars! Will definitely return!

Such an FABULOUS, AMAZING vacation!

  • 5 of 5

ELSEWHERE by The Sea was a true delight! We were a group of 9 women in our 50's and 60's looking for a relaxing spot to be pampered. This house, location and staff were the perfect combination to meet and exceed every need, request and desire. The house itself, is wonderfully furnished with fabulous, relaxing spaces throughout....from the nice seating on the veranda, the spacious dock on the water to the balcony on the second floor, ELSEWHERE offers gorgeous views, wonderful privacy and intimate luxury. The neighborhood was secure and quite nice. We walked every day and enjoyed the community gym to help work off the wonderful food that we ate at each meal. The staff took this fantastic vacation package to the next level. They were insightful, creative, attentive and sooo much more! , Kassandra the cook, Kemoy the butler, Delores the housekeeper and John the gardener were FANTASTIC! From the delightful, DELICIOUS meals that Kassandra prepared each day to the beautiful table settings and wonderful cocktails by Kemoy, the incredible help that Delores gave each one of us with our laundry, turning down beds, making the house look perfect every day, & her thoughtful attentiveness, to the perfectly manicured lawns, flowers, beach front, grounds & more by John. We came unsure of what to expect with a staff of 4 at the house each day.....we left with 4 new and wonderful friends that we hope to see again in the future! There was a soothing, wonderful, once in a lifetime relaxing rhythm to each day that was exactly what we were seeking. It was a place that allowed us to be still, breathe deeply and enjoy each other leaving our sometimes stressful, often hectic lives behind. Thank you to Piers and Connie for sharing your lovely home and to Kassandra, Kemoy, Delores and John for your wonderful service! You made our week into a memory we will never forget.

One love......Rhonda

PS Be sure to take advantage of the kayaks and snorkel gear provided. There are some wonderful sights right off the beach! A local Steel Band on the beach is a TON of fun too!!

A Paragon

  • 5 of 5

Near perfection in making our family time together both meaningful and memorable. It starts with the "place," a home perfectly designed for gathering our group all the while providing individual space for relaxation and solace. It is the team, however, that makes the experience matchless.
