of the newest villas in Jamaica, Seaside Cottage is an adorable
private home of comfort and sophistication at famous Round Hill.
Its exquisite location provides one of the most spectacular views
in the Caribbean. Hidden away from the awareness of others ...
yet only minutes from all amenities of the prestigious resort
... this intimate villa is the ultimate for a romantic honeymoon,
anniversary or relaxing escape.
Interiors are designed around a unique blend of
specially commissioned Balinese and Jamaican furnishings and original
art. Floors are cool Italian tile. While meals typically are served
al fresco in the poolside gazebo, guests also have the option
of the indoor dining room. A state-of-the-art telephone system
in every room enables laptop and Internet connection. Intercoms
enable easy communication among all bedrooms, kitchen and staff
quarters. Televisions in each bedroom are Digital Satellite System
(Total Platinum). In the living room is also a stereo with CD
player, DVD/VCR and a 32" Toshiba television. All rooms share
a breathtaking view over the ten-mile stretch of azure sea that
separates Round Hill from the town of Montego Bay, a panorama
beyond description day and night.
From the pool terrace, the expansive lawn sweeps
down to the sea. Guests can swim and snorkel from the coral rocks
in the clear water here.
Rise early to catch the visual magic of a Jamaican
sunrise kissing the landscape with color and light. After a morning
swim and breakfast, relax on the furnished poolside verandah.
Here, both under roof and open to the brilliant sunshine, are
sofas and chaises for sunning, reading and napping ... or merely
reveling in pampered relaxation. Indulge in the bubbly hot tub
with a rum punch under a Jamaican sunset before a delicious home-cooked
candlelight dinner in the gazebo. After dark, the lights of the
town of Montego Bay twinkle from far across the water, adding
nighttime magic to this romantic hideaway.
For more activity, take a seven-minute walk down
a tree-lined lane to Round Hill Hotel and Beach Club. Shuttle
service is available if you prefer a two-minute ride to the beach.
While totally private and self-contained, Seaside
Cottage shares 10 acres with its sister property, Hillside
Cottage ~ an older but much-loved 4-bedroom villa 100 meters
away. The two villas can be rented together for a marvelous eight-bedroom
compound with two swimming pools and a combined staff of ten.
Dinners can be served to all guests at either property.
