Hi there! I am Debbie. Welcome to Chatham Cottages! I am blessed to have married into a family that has been in the Hospitality business here in Montego Bay, Jamaica for a long time. Below is a little history about Chatham Cottages. Chatham Cottages Montego Bay’s Chatham Beach Hotel was built in 1934 by Stanley Foster, hitting its stride after World War 2 as a popular destination for veterans, celebrities, and vacationing families. Chatham Cottages have been operated by the Foster family on a continuous basis since then, providing affordable, secure, and comfortable accommodations for hundreds of youth groups, mission trips, and organizations. Individuals and families also continue to enjoy our peaceful alternative to the all-inclusive scene while benefiting from our close proximity to the beach (83 strides from Cottage 7 takes you to the ocean). We welcome the opportunity to give you the same warm welcome we’ve been extending to guests for over 80 years! A guest left this sweet note! - Mrs. Foster, Thank you so much for the warm hospitality! We had such a nice time here. Wishing you all the best! Kimberly & the CSP crew
Why Debbie chose Montego Bay
I love to travel! And have found over the years beginning from when our children were small and even now I prefer a self catering cottage with space and privacy to staying in a hotel room. I have set up the cottage with this in mind. It isn't fancy but it is comfortable and roomy. Having a kitchen is nice for families and those that are on special diets. Pack a lunch and go explore this lovely island! ** Why this property? Location! Location! Location! Yes, this Cottage is central to everything. You can even walk on into downtown Montego Bay if you are a walker. :-) Do you need a home base for a conference or outreach, or just a peaceful place to relax? How about that book you keep wanting to write but too many distractions at home? Chatham Cottages provides a quiet respite from the many activities within easy reach of Montego Bay.

The listing description was spot-on accurate. The cottage has a great location that is very close to the beach, great restaurants and the Hip Strip.
The property was very clean and well maintained.
Ms. Debbie was very helpful! She gave us good recommendations on things to do, where to eat and where to go for groceries and other necessities. She was always very prompt in responding to my questions before our trip and would check in during our stay to see how things were going.
I would recommend this place for anyone going to Montego Bay! It was so relaxing and had everything that we needed.
We were able to do so many activities. We went to Dunn's River Falls, Blue Hole/Secret Falls, Martha Brae River Rafting, and did a Hampden Rum Tour. We went to the beach! We went during a holiday and the beach across the street from the cottage was very busy, so we just went to Doctors Cave Beach, which is a short walk away. We ate at Toby's resort (just around the corner), Tracks and Records, Café Tease and the Pelican café (milkshakes!). Ms. Debbie also had some bun and cheese with coffee that we all enjoyed for breakfast!
Thank you so much for staying in my cottage. It was a pleasure having you all. I really enjoyed meeting you and your lovely family! You are welcome back anytime!
Chatham Cottages was a great stay and highly recommend it!!!
This was a great stay, the photos were exactly what the cottage looked like. Very secure, clean, and safe. The owner Mrs. Debbie is very accommodating, greeted us, gave great recommendations of the area, where to go for groceries. If we needed anything Mrs. Debbie would ensure it was done. Great stay!!!!
The small beach is across the property, get there early, the locals begin to arrive around 10:00 am or so. Recommend Doc Cave beach on the Hip Strip, very secure, clean bathrooms, bar, music. Entrance fee is $6.00 (US) per person. If your stay is longer than a week recommend you rent a car. Haggle everything!!! Cab fare, souvenirs etc. The Hip Strip is within walking distance, no issues, but be prepared to walk the gauntlet of sellers of souvenirs. Visit the casino which is across Margaritaville on the Hip Strip. the first floor is an arcade for kids, go up to the 3rd floor, food, bar and entertainment is great. I do recommend visiting the Hard Rock Cafe in Montego Bay, Pier 1, Rick's cafe in Negril and Dunn's river falls in Ocho Rio's, great time and experience.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. You left our cottage spotless, we love having guests like you stay with us!
