About Patrick Couisns

The Cousins were born in Jamaica, and recently returned for a 17th year anniversary get-away. It was during this visit that we found and fell in love with Serendipity. We purchased this vacation villa as a way to reconnect with the Island they love so much, and to share this joy with their 3 children.

Patrick Couisns purchased this guest house in 2008

Why Patrick Couisns chose Jamaica

We love Jamaica: it's beauty, people, culture and food. It's our favorite place to be, and will be yours too.

What makes this guest house unique

The astonishing 220 degree view of the Caribbean Sea. Serendipity has a warm, friendly staff that will take care of your every whim. They will mind the children while you go on excursion, or just sleep in. It is truly a VACATE-tion. You leave all your worries behind when you are at Serendipity. We have the only clay tennis court in Montego Bay!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I would like to express a sincere thank you for your gracious invitation to Jamaica, your encouragement in getting me there and your warm hospitality in your beautiful villa.

I had awesome time and enjoyed all 5 days immensely. The staff were friendly and helpful. Garnett the butler and Ms. Ruby the cook were real gems as their names truly describe. Garnett did something special for me everyday and Ms. Ruby did an excellent job cooking and packaging food for me to take home.

I was pleased to see that Jamaicans were friendlier and less hostile than when I first left Jamaica in the 1960's. I had such a tremendous time that I would love a return visit as soon as I get the courage again to fly the friendly skies.

Thanks again.

Island Time

  • 5 of 5

My experience here has been absolutely wonderful. Ms Ruby has cooked such wonderful island cuisine , jerk chicken , rice and peas, rum cake and pina colodas .So many more tasty dishes we enjoyed. Also Garnett the butler served all meals so beautifully and also was so kind and friendly. Earl the gardener kept the grounds so perfect and the pool was so inviting and clean . Also the villa was so clean and spotless and if you needed laundry done Ms Doreen and Ms Rose Mary took care of it right away. I will totally miss waking up to hearing the ocean and feeling the ocean breeze on my face as I relaxed on the patio . Also the villa was conviently located to zip lining and Negril and the beach and shopping for gifts to bring home for lasting memories.

When I stepped foot out of my vehicle I was greeted with a cold towel and warm smiles. This made me feel at home when I was shown around and was hospitably equipped with their in home wifi. Which proves to be very helpful with any work you may have to do on vacation. Their staff was so nice and never once got in the way but did what they had to do and much more which was all you can ask for to top off your amazing trip to Jamaica. My advice as a first timer is to go to serendipity you won't be sorry!

North coast of Jamaica. Be sure to visit Scothies and the Fish Hut, our favorite dives. The Hip Strip is also a must see where you can spend the day shopping and hanging out on the beach. We love the Great River Zipline Canopy Tours in Lithe. We will provide beach access to beach club.
