"Nine of us stayed here for a week. We loved it and had a wonderful time. The staff is personable and so flexible. The food was delicious and Leighton was nice to work with us. The rooms were perfect and relaxing. Honestly we had no complaints. As we arrived they were all out to greet us which was nice. The tour was amazing. Each room they showed us was unique in its own way. Allan is very sweet and played games with us when invited and was a joy. Leighton was quiet but made delicious meals for us. Valda and Lorlett sang as they worked and they really made the vacation for the moms on this trip. Clean sheets and made beds with fresh towels and clean ironed laundry was the biggest treat. Rohan shared with me his plans for education and career and I wish him the best. Our drivers were always there when we needed them. I recommend Dwayne for your driver. We met Matthew (security) and talked to him. We screamed a couple nights (once during a movie and once when a bug was on someone) and he was right there checking on us. I never felt unsafe EVER. The ping pong table was awesome. We spent many hours playing. We loved the comfy lounges by the pool. Most if us girls walked every day and Bastin gave us a tour of the property with livestock. We even got to go see the school over the hill. This week has been hard to return to cooking and cleaning again in boring Kansas. :) Thank you for sharing your house with us. We would love to stay again anytime!"
"I stayed at Coconut Cottage with a group of my friends & had an amazing time. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean (and I loved the scent of the free toiletries!). When we arrived, the house manager greeted us with a refreshing mango ginger juice (made from the mangos on the property). Another day the groundskeeper took a coconut from one of the trees, cut the top off, popped in a straw and gave it to me while I was lounging by the pool. The staff was so friendly and thoughtful. I also loved the information book provided by the owner; it contained many great suggestions. One restaurant the owner recommended was the Lobster Trap. It turned out to be one of the best dining experiences I've had. We ate on the beach---the most amazing lobster, potatoes and Red Stripe you can imagine. Make sure you call ahead; they only serve what they catch that day. We also spent time at the pool, bar and beach at Round Hill, which is almost directly across the street from Coconut Cottage. I enjoyed my vacation so much that I am returning in April with my children. The owner and staff are wonderful---definitely exceeded my expectations!"
"I recommend Coconut Cottage without reservation. First, it is beautiful. The 'Cottage' is a lovely villa, decorated in whites with dark wood accents and many views of greens and blues. The back of the house is almost entirely open, enabling you to settle in on one of the many couches with fresh air and the patio, pool, lawn, and water in the distance. The bedrooms were lovely, well equipped, and well maintained. And if you tire of the house, we found the Round Hill resort (a longer walk or shorter shuttle ride) offered its own attractive architecture, awnings, and ocean-side attractions of pools, restaurant, and spa. Second, the villa is very comfortable. We traveled with a group of 5, but we could easily have had twice as many people. There are assorted indoor and outdoor places on the property to read, sun, and sleep. We all had plenty of privacy, balanced with wonderful, early (ok, not that early) mornings and long evenings in the living room together talking, reading books, playing games, and enjoying Jamaican food and drink specialties. Finally, this location affords a restful sense of decadence. Visiting Round Hill gave us the more social experience of resort life, with all of the convenience of opening a 'room' account, so we felt at home there. Remaining or returning to the Cottage gave us a tranquil and private place to talk and play and rest. The staff at the house could not have been more helpful and gracious in looking after us -- cooking, cleaning, mixing drinks, arranging transportation. If you cannot relax here, you most likely cannot relax anywhere. I look forward to relaxing there again!"
"We stayed at Coconut Cottage with our teenage boys and our parents. It was a wonderful experience in every way. The villa is beautiful and with our family of 7 everyone was able to have their own bedroom and bathroom, find a quiet nook to read, and come together for lively games of dominoes. The pool area is great and the views are amazing. The staff thoughtfully met all our needs and wants. We had many delicious meals at the villa, including waking every morning to a lovely big breakfast. The access to Round Hill is great. We played tennis, had a few meals, snorkeled and relaxed at the beach. My husband played golf at Tryall, just a few minutes away, on most mornings and really enjoyed the course. All in all, a fantastic vacation and a beautiful place."
"Every detail of our vacation was wonderful. From the minute we arrived and were greeted with fresh juice, to the final heart-felt hugs from the staff as we sadly headed back to the airport. The cottage had everything we needed. Elegant and high-end but in an understated, unpretentious way. Thoughtful details abound. The staff is excellent, there when we needed them, but never hovering. Breakfast was amazing! The layout is comfortable and everyone had their own little place to escape to. The view, the pool, and of course the days spent at Round Hill = heaven. So happy that we have found our special place and look forward to creating many more amazing memories at CC!"
"Our stay at Coconut Cottage was a complete delight! The house is beautifully decorated, comfortable, sophisticated - yet warm. It is difficult today to find old-world charm updated in such a simple and elegant way. Perfect! I loved my bedroom - you've thought of everything! Loved Round Hill, Coconut Cottage & entire staff. I feel fortunate to have experienced it. Thank you!"
"My friends and I stayed at CC for a relaxing mid-winter break and it was absolute paradise. The house is beautiful and comfortable and comparable to any 5 star hotel. The staff are fantastic from their cooking, to service, to helpful tips, to special treatment... we felt like royalty. Round Hill is a very short drive and an extremely luxurious, but not snobbish, resort. The buffet at their Jamaica Night was spectacular, although, I admit that the desserts at the cottage were better :) I highly recommend a day trip to Mayfield Falls for an adventure, Negril for white sand beaches, or Croydon Plantation for delicious fruits and history. Stay at Coconut Cottage if you want your own slice of paradise."
"Coconut Cottage far exceeded our expectations. The property is expansive and our group of 6 felt like we each had our own little piece of heaven. The bedrooms and baths are incredibly comfortable and well appointed. The staff is wonderful, always knowing when to help and when to let us do our own thing. The views of the ocean are gorgeous and far more impressive than the pictures on the website. The ability to utilize the amenities at Round Hill was wonderful but we were always glad to come home at the end of the day to our own space. We hope to return to this very special home every year. Thank you for the a truly memorable vacation."
"My family of 6 just returned after a wonderful week long stay at the magnificent Coconut Cottage. From the moment we arrived, the incredible staff made it feel like this beautiful place was our very own home away from home. The photos didn't even do it justice! Every bedroom room is large and beautifully decorated. The grande living area is so comfortable and the outside veranda is so tranquil for taking in the beauty and serenity of the ocean and the view. We never felt like we were ever on top of one another and we always all had our own space to chill out when needed. Alan and the courteous staff made us the most delicious meals and drinks everyday ...anything we could have asked for! (banana pancakes were my personal favorite) This home is a piece of heaven. We loved every moment of every day and can't wait to go back next year...and every year thereafter. :)"
"We thoroughly enjoyed our one-week stay at Coconut Cottage! Prior to our arrival, the owner was incredibly helpful and responsive as we planned our stay. The villa staff and driver greeted us with big smiles immediately, and their genuine friendliness continued throughout our stay. We never tired of the beautiful view, the large swimming pool, the comfortable rooms, delicious meals on the verandah, and the quick trip to Round Hill's beach/pool. Coconut Cottage was perfect for our party of six, which included two young children. We had plenty of space, and only needed to use three of the five bedrooms. Thank you for allowing us to experience this beautiful home and true Jamaican hospitality!"
"If you are looking for a quiet Jamaican get away in a superior natural setting with pampered but unobtrusive service, Coconut Cottage should be on your list. The owners will help you get car service from Montego Bay airport, and we recommend getting a driver for your whole stay. A few miles outside of MB, you'll find an unmarked driveway that leads past some fields with a few pigs, goats, chickens, etc, and comes to a secure, gated additional driveway that houses the Cottage. We took an extended family group of 11 and had a truly wonderful experience. A staff of 5 provides excellent food -- we asked for and got "food like the locals" -- including goat curry, several kinds of fish, jerk chicken, and truly fresh fruit (mangos are much better than in the US). The staff is very friendly, and happy to chat and be available while also demonstrating a good sense of when guests desire space and quiet. We spent part of our week simply enjoying the property, and also going across the road to Round Hill (great snorkeling and a fun Friday night show), and another part of our week touring the Island, with the same driver using a large van. The staff was also able to arrange a bicycle for me, so I could work off a few of the great calories. There is great walking up the hill and also mountain biking type terrain. There is a stunning ocean view from the living room and pool area, and the house includes up to date audiovisual and an ample variety of fun board games. The property lent itself to our family having individual times to ourselves as well as group events. There is plenty of both indoor and outdoor space to enjoy. This ends up being much more economical and relaxing than simply staying at Round Hill or another place with lots of other folks. If you want to people watch, just go across the street or into town! The property was always clean, the descriptions provided by the owners are accurate, and we definitely recommend this place and will be back. "
"This vacation was one of my all time favorite vacations ever! We enjoys Coconut Cottage and the amazing staff so so much. It was the perfect match between laid back living and luxury! We travelled with our friends, both families had three children. The house was perfect for two families with children. The style of the house was welcoming and beautiful and the indoor/outdoor living spaces made us feel like we were always enjoying the Jamaican sunshine! We will go back!"
"We just returned from a week at the divine Coconut Cottage! The house is perfection. It is beautifully decorated and yet totally comfortable. All the rooms open to the veranda which gave everyone the ability to socialize together and retreat when they wanted privacy. The staff took great care of us and the food was delicious. We took full advantage of Round Hill. We went snorkeling and sailing. The kids went tubing and learned to weave baskets with Richard. The Beach BBQ and Jamaican Night are not to be missed. Thank you for letting us rent your amazing home. We plan to return and will definitely recommend it."
"First let me say it was incredible! The staff were fantastic and Dwayne our driver was the best. As you may or may not know this was our first trip to Jamaica and we fell in LOVE with her. We will be back for sure year after year we loved every minute of it. PERFECTION!!!!!!!! We are planning on returning to Coconut Cottage next year and are already looking at the calendar. It was truly a pleasure working with you and again it was beyond words."
"We just returned from staying 2 weeks at Coconut Cottage and it was the best holiday/vacation we have had. The home is beautifully decorated, spacious and relaxing. We all considered it the 'best of both worlds'.....the benefits of a 5 star villa with an incredible staff and access to a 5 star resort without having to pay the over the top prices. We will certainly return!"
