About Villa

In the 1950’s, Kingston attorney Clinton Hart happened onto this remarkable 3-acre waterfront location, bought it and built a simple beach cottage for his family. Through four generations, Canoe Cove has been a beloved family home, virtually unembellished. In 2015, Hart’s grandson replaced the worn cottage with a new sort of architecture, straightforward, uncomplicated and loaded with thoughtful comforts and essentials to redefine luxury in a beachy, barefoot lifestyle.

Here is a dream come true for the three-generation family whose wish list of individual requirements includes copious space for togetherness; intimate space to take a nap, finish a novel or have a massage; sporting options to satisfy restless cravings for activity and the stimulation of competitive sports; and spacious dining areas when those other cravings kick in and your chef rings the bell that signals time for another long, leisurely, luscious meal.  In short, make your multi-faceted wish list and take a look at Canoe Cove.

The 200’ beach ranges in width from sea wall to surf from 15’ in high tide to 30’ in low tide, varying with weather patterns.  For joggers or strollers, the extended beach length is approximately 1,000 feet.  The uninterrupted view extends all the way to the horizon, punctuated a few times each week by tall white cruise ships drifting silently across your view toward the harbor. 

Canoe Cove encourages a relaxed, un-fussy vacation with an abundance of sporty options balanced with as much pure relaxation as anyone could want.  The location is amazing. The service is excellent. The villa itself is stylish without pretense or overstatement, uncluttered and totally livable.  Inside, textures of exotic woods establish a grounded, organic ambience as backdrop against stylish furnishings.  Cedar, Jojoba, Honduran pine, marble, coral stone and natural cement floors are cool under bare feet.  Finishes of reclaimed teak and driftwood echo the Caribbean venue.  Decorating a hallway is a whimsical 6’ pendant lamp made entirely of old magazines and looking remarkably like bark.  Across the lawn, supporting structures of the gazebo are purloined telephone poles with bamboo-clad bases.  Delicate orchids cultivated on site contrast with other natural materials and adorn most rooms.

For tennis buffs who want to bring their own pro from home, on-site sleeping accommodations can be arranged and villa staff will look after this guest.  Nannies from home may sleep in the child’s room.

  • First, we wish to thank you for all of your help and advice. The beauty of the property and staff alike was overwhelming. Our vacation far exceeded anything we could have imagined and will be treasured for the rest of our lives. We also had the opportunity to spend time with the owner, John Bailey, who is genuinely kind and hospitable. He has given the world a tiny piece of paradise and we are forever grateful. My husband and I, as well as each of our daughters, have pledged to return again (and again, God willing).

  • We were a group of 14 and stayed a week at Canoe Cove. Jan 27-Feb 3-2018. Words can't describe how amazing this villa is! From the pristine gardens and breathtaking pool to the open air rooms...everything was beyond our expectations. The layout of this villa is terrific and gave you privacy if you needed it and great gathering areas if you wanted to be all together. The pool view and beach absolutely breathtaking. The staff was amazing...Our Chef Akeema & Romario and Angela catered to our every tastes whether we wanted a BBQ dinner, pasta station or casual burgers and homemade chicken noodle soup and grilled cheeses---they made it happen....Oshane and Andre kept us happy 24/7 with what ever we needed...whether it was a frozen drink at the pool or a getting us a masseuse for the day...they had us covered!! The beds were extremely comfortable with daily turn down service and fresh towels thanks to Sharon, Eisa and Angie. Thank you for making this week so memorable. We're already talking about going back!!!

    Thomas Party

  • Words cannot describe this incredibly magical week we have just spent at Canoe Cove. Welcomed by our fabulous staff who have utterly spoilt us rotten, always been there for us and going far beyond our expectations every day. Our food was out of this world and I always looked forward to what we would be eating next.

    Our days filled with sunshine, beautiful beaches, waterfalls, cocktails, and fun will be missed. The girls loved their time with Andre and completing the puzzle!!! He is very special and they enjoyed all of his games so much.

    I could go on and on about how wonderful each and every moment has been. Thank you Arianna, Bounty, Andre, Jermaine, Angie, Angella, Elsa, Sharon, Clive, Jino, and Damien for making our holiday the best ever.

    We are all emotional today leaving Canoe Cove, but have the most amazing memories in our hearts. We will be back, that's for sure. One Love.

    Croll Family
