About Monica McNeil

Our idyllic villa was a dream come true. Happily married for over 28 years, we purchased this home as our private escape. We've treasured many memories here and we want to share it with visitors who wish to create their own special memories in Jamaica. Our daughter Nadine, a former contractor with the United Nations, is now an internationally recognized yoga instructor and is available upon advance request. There’s nothing like enjoying relaxing yoga on one of our three (3) terraced decks overlooking the sea.

Monica McNeil purchased this villa in 1989

Why Monica McNeil chose Saint Mary Parish

We chose our location because it is less than two hours away from Kingston, Jamaica's capital, and Montego Bay, the perfect location for a day trip. The area has a smorgasbord of restaurants and activities such as White River, Dunn's River Falls and the Rio Nuevo Battle site, just mere minutes away. If you’re a foodie you’ll delight in the fantastic Italian food at Toscanini, just minutes away from us.

And now, with the opening of the Ian Fleming airport less than a 10 minute drive from the villa, guests may arrive via private plane. The legendary Firefly restaurant is closeby, as well as the famous Golden Eye hotel. This area is also known for the filming of the first ever James Bond film, "Dr. No".

The construction of the new highway makes Montego Bay less than 2 hours away.

What makes this villa unique

We know our groups! We have extra equipment including tables and chairs. Enjoy the warm ambiance with fairy lights in the trees, tiki torches around the pool, and the sound system outside by the pool.

For a small surcharge we can also assist you with everything you need to manifest the perfect event; catering for larger groups, speciality place settings, linens, audiovisual for slideshows/presentations, group transfers and even put you in touch with a local acquaintance who owns a beautiful beach nearby, to organize an intimate or larger beach party.

My first time in Jamaica was definitely a memorable one. I really got a feel of the Jamaican culture by means of our Villa and staff (Ms. Marylyn, Danielle, Tasha) as well as our driver (Dwight). The Villa is clean, private and relaxing. The staff at the Villa are PHENOMENAL. All of our needs were met and they exceeded our expectations. I left feeling like a native of the island because of them. Monica, you have the best 3 person staff on the island in my opinion. "Yeh mon"

Can't wait to return soon!!!!

Amazing!!! Will not disappoint

  • 5 of 5

I’ve stayed in many a homes and this one was in my top choice! Driving distance to all the attractions and Dwight is very helpful in making sure you’re treated right and safety is his top concern. Once you’re home for the day very relaxing environment and the staff is top shelf!!! Our room was cleaned and sheets were changed by the time we returned home and the dinner choices were AMAZING!!! The ladies are very helpful in food choices (They recommended Champions to shop because the prices are cheaper) but food in Jamaica is quite pricey no matter where you go..I️ suggest letting the ladies at the house do the shopping. Love the 4 bedrooms with SEPERATE FULL baths!!! The views are amazing and the pool is perfect!!! Onsite 24 hour security adds that extra peace of mind!! No real complaints and I’ve recommend 2 of my friends to get THIS house for their couples retreat they won’t be disappointed!!!!

Thumbs Up!!

  • 5 of 5

This house made my 1st trip to Jamaica a sensational one! The view of the ocean from the multiple level balcony was PHENOMENAL! This spacious villa was exactly what was needed for the week. My wife and I stayed with 3 other couples and we never got in each other's way. Each of the 4 spacious bedrooms suited us swell. The living room (front room) easily held us 8 for game night. And the staff.......oh my.....the staff was AMAZING! Marilyn, Tosha, and Danielle far exceeded our expectations! We couldn't have asked for anything more. Every meal prepared was delicious and the rooms were kept spotless. I definitely recommend this property for those who are searching for their next get away.

**This home is within a short drive to Mystic Mountain, Dunns River, Blue Hole, and city shopping!

A wonderful anniversary trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Valhalla Villa. Our driver gave us reasonable rates and took great care of us, making sure we were safe through out our stay. We stayed for 7 days and enjoyed each one more than the last, except the last because it was time to come home. The staff was excellent! Can't stress that enough! They are the reason we will return without question. The food and service they provided far surpassed our expectations. Best fried chicken I've ever had, and that means a lot from a southern boy. Couldn't have asked for more.
