Cannon Cottage is a spacious 3 bedroom en suite villa with its tropical colours, distinctive art work and furnishings that are tasteful, stylish and one of a kind. The Villa boasts two original cannons from Jamaica’s colonial days and is located in the fully gated, secured and patroled community of the Silver Sands Estate. This Resort has over 100 private Villas owned by individuals from all around the world.
Cannon Cottage has the great fortune of being situated on an incline so it overlooks and offers a breathtaking view of the world famous Silver Sands Beach and is just a one-minute walk to the water. Dining on the terrace provides a tranquil view of the turquoise waters of the sea as well as the beautiful tropical foliage surrounding the Villa.
More about Cannon Cottage Villa: Day or night you can relax in the Jacuzzi with its own waterfall, set among the rocks in the back garden amidst the lush tropical paradise, or 'chill out' in the hammock on the verandah and enjoy the cool sea breeze while sipping your rum punch.
Lorna, Erica and Barrington, your Cook, Housekeeper and Gardener, will pamper you to ensure that your stay at Cannon Cottage provides memories to last a lifetime. Baby-sitting services are available upon request. The villa provides some amenities for babies and toddlers at no extra cost, including crib/playpen, booster chair, bed rails, crib net, assortment of beach pails and toys, floats.
Cannon Cottage - private enough to get away from it all, or you may wish to join other families, who are staying at any of the other villas throughout the Estate, or at the Club Area, which is the social centre and hub of Silver Sands, which has live entertainment some evenings, including bands and kareoke.
Activities on the Silver Sands Estate: The beach is an expanse of magnificent fine grained white sand, cleaned daily. It is one of the best in the Caribbean, and has a qualified Life Guard. You may swim in the beautiful pristine blue waters, snorkel and explore the reefs of Silver Sands, or simply bask in the sun.
The Estate is a perfect environment for jogging and power-walking, plus there are footpaths linking the roads from one block of houses to the next. With minimal vehicular traffic, it is a great and safe environment for children and youngsters to roam around as they go about exploring and meeting other children who may be staying at other villas.
The large patio at the beach has a bar and grill, and a pool room. There is a well stocked commissary. There is a Gazebo at the end of the Jetty that separates the West Beach from the Swimming Beach - a romantic spot to watch the sunrise or sunset. Also a popular setting for many a wedding over the years.
Activities around and nearby Silver Sands: Certified drivers provide round-trip transfers Airport/Silver Sands. Advise if you need car seats. You can also arrange with the property manager to be taken to any of the many tourist attractions Jamaica has to offer. There is a small coral reef just offshore the beach and a larger one further out. Deep Sea Fishing (or luminous Lagoon Tour) can be arranged as well. Boat hire is for 1/2 day or the full day .... 10 mins west of Silver Sands. Braco Stables, not even 10 mins east of Silver Sands, offers a horseback riding tour.
There is the local Fishermans Beach next door the property. Vendors sell their art and craft during the day and at nights there is Island entertainment to be enjoyed. Its a 3 minute drive to the town of Duncans to the supermarket.
We loved Cannon Cottage and it's owner & staff!!! What a gem! The house is perfect in every way! The beach was beautiful and clean, never crowded! Karen was great to work with and a very gracious hostess! She answered all of our questions and was very helpful in arranging a driver (Julie) for a couple of day outings! Barrington (the gardener) was very helpful as well, what a character! He was a lot of fun! Erica was a great housekeeper, she went above and beyond doing our laundry and keeping the place spotless. The house was in perfect condition. Lorna (the cook)was wonderful! She was a special lady who prepared delicious Jamaican recipes. We truly enjoyed our stay at Cannon Cottage...it was the first vacation that we really did not want to leave!! We will be back there for sure, hopefully sooner rather than later!
Guided by the recommendation of a family member, we visited Cannon Cottage during our recent trip to Jamaica all the way from Germany. After a 45 minutes drive from the Montego Bay airport we entered Silver SandsVillage nicely located directly on the beach. Cannon Cottage is a house not only in a perfect shape but also decorated with art and unique pieces. We had a very warm welcome by the owner Karen Sangster and her staff. They cooked delicious meals for us (for example „ackee and saltfish“ we heard so much about as a Jamaican national dish) which we ate at the dining table set on a balcony while having a perfect view on the ocean. This is also the ideal deck to read a book or simply relax . Having a back problem and being light sleepers, we were pleasantly surprised by the comfort of the bed. At night it as was quite –what we are used from home- so we had most restful nights. The white sanded beach is in sight and only seconds away. You get beach chairs there and umbrellas free of cost. Also there is a bar and restaurant (which we didn’t try) but they offer entertainment and one night we watched the crab racing, a traditional game, which was quite funny. All over all, our stay was very pleasant and a real Jamaican experience.. We travel a lot and not everywhere it has suited us so well. We can definitely recommend Cannon Cottage for everybodies holidays. Thank you!
I felt more relaxed in Jamaica than anywhere else I have experienced. For sure I will return as soon as possible. I am in love with the ackee tree and the beach. I enjoyed how our room opened to the hotub in the back and how it offered a quiet break from the ocean in the day. I also enjoyed the hammock in front with the bird songs and the tree frogs at night.
Everything was as advertised and the staff were so friendly it was
Ike having instant family. I didn't have to cook or clean a thing and the food was so good I had to nap it off every afternoon and had no desire to go to a restaurant!
The view of the ocean from our deck was spectacular ; combined with the sounds of the waves very soothing to the soul! The beach is just steps away to enjoy :walking , snorkeling ,swimming or just relaxing on the beach of white sand.The market near the cottage has all your groceries needs not to mention rum wine alcohol and souvenier's for you to take back home! There is a bar and a grill on the beach for all to enjoy !The fisherman's market is next to the Silver Sands where you can see the local artist doing their wood carvings or find an assortment of souveneirs from the other shops or even buy fresh fish lobster from the fishermen at the market.

We just recently completed a family vacation with some friends of ours. We both have girls right around 3yo. Everyone enjoyed the trip greatly. Everything was as advertised. We had breakfast every morning outside, we made several trips to the beach each day (great to be able to go back and forth to clean up and eat), we had great meals every night, and we enjoyed drinks at the jacuzzi after the girls went to bed.
Lorna and Erica were very helpful and so nice. The girls loved seeing them every day. Every driver we had was great. I would certainly recommend Julie though. I would also recommend Harold for a snorkeling trip out to the reef and Lorna 2 (as we called her) for a massage.
Karen was great to work with. She answered all of our questions before the trip. She even made a special accommodation for us.
Thank you for a wonderful vacation. We hope to come back soon.
Cannon Cottage was exactly what we were looking for to celebrate our anniversary. The location of the villa was private with amazing views of the ocean. We had a wonderful time and loved Lorna's cooking and attention to detail. The beach was not crowded and the swimming was amazing. We look forward to returning next year. Thank you to Karen, Lorna, and Barrington for their kindness and making our vacation special.
