A typical grocery budget is approximately US $50-60 per day per person for adults and $20-30 for kids.* This includes full breakfast, lunch and dinner. Wine and liquor are extra and will be pre-stocked at your request.
The staff will stock the first day's food based on instructions you provide on our Guest Arrival Information Form and will shop for you every few days. If you wish to go to the various markets with your cook, you are welcome. Otherwise, simply review with him your tastes and distastes and he'll handle it all while you stay at the villa and relax. At week's end, he will present receipts and reconcile your account. Please be prepared to pay for your groceries with cash unless otherwise arranged. Both US and Jamaican dollars are accepted.
If a full-time driver is not booked, there will be a $40 pre-stocking fee and a $40 shopping fee twice per week to cover taxi fare.

PRE-PAYMENT OF GROCERIES
If you want your vacation at Coconut Cottage to be as worry-free as possible, we highly suggest that you consider pre-paying for your groceries. Arrangements can be made when booking. Estimating grocery costs is not a science. Much depends on the menus you want and current market prices. The formula of US $50 per day per person for adults/$20 for kids is used when calculating pre-payments. This includes full breakfast, lunch and dinner. Wine and liquor are extra and will be pre-stocked at your request. If there is reimbursement to be made at the end of your stay, that amount will be refunded with your security deposit. Note: pre-payments must be made at least 2 weeks before your stay.
*this may vary up or down depending on market prices and menus.
