    Thoroughly upgraded and tastefully redecorated in 2013, today’s Coconut is a brilliant testimony that wonderful old Colonial charm can co-exist seamlessly with contemporary comforts and amenities.

    Situated to take advantage of the trade winds, the villa overlooks the stunning east view of the Caribbean Sea and Montego Bay. A pool deck and wonderful fresh-water swimming pool are a few steps down from the verandah and offer an impressive, uninterrupted sea view clear to the horizon.  Colorful tropical landscaping adorns the grounds. Coconut’s own organic garden provides fresh basil, parsley, beans, tomatoes, scotch bonnet, mangoes, coconuts, breadfruit, “uglyfruit” and, of course, ackee (Jamaican’s national dish).

    Inside, the stylis living room is the center of the Main House.  Like all three bedrooms in the Main House, the living room opens to the covered furnished long verandah and “that view.”  In open-space plan, a comfy nook with cable TV, bar and ceiling-to-floor library shelves form an indoor entertainment area.

    Mealtime at Coconut merits special mention. Chef’s Special is an eponymous Coconut Basa as many times as you want it this week!  On place settings of Christofle silver and Wedgwood china, memorable meals are created by talented Chef Leighton and served by ever-smiling Butler Allan. (Although Allan is always standing by, adults and children alike love to summon him with the antique dinner bell from France that sits on the Queen Anne dining table.)  A few guest favorites are Leighton’s bbq jerk pork chops, bananas flambé, all-day-every-day chocolate chip or oatmeal cookies, and a homemade ice cream cake that kids beg for “just one more time.” Guests actually applaud Leighton’s meals.

    But mealtimes are also memorable thanks to the very location of Coconut.  Complementing marvelous meals is the undeniably romantic view over the sea to the east. After dusk, the lights of passing cruise ships and of the town of Montego Bay across the sea sparkle like a distant diamond necklace. When the moon is full, it seems to drift directly toward Coconut and turns the sea to silver.  Mesmerizingly beautiful.


    In 2013, all rooms were redecorated in designer fabrics.  All bedrooms have state-of-the-art split system quiet air conditioning, ceiling fans and new en-suite bathrooms with bathtub/shower combinations. Hair dryers and Aromapothecary toiletries are complimentary.
