I am a Canadian living in Jamaica in a separate house on the Greatview property. I am there to manage the villa and its staff of 10 to ensure that guests needs are attended to and their expectations of Greatview continually exceeded. My personal collection of antiques and vintage collectables are throughout the villa. I ensure that the amenities are always fresh and new and that guests are delighted by the variety of different table settings, dishes, placemates and napkins and Greatview's famous salt and pepper collection.

Owner purchased this villa in 2003
Having vacationed in this community overlooking Half Moon Bay, I knew this was an area I wanted to return to and to bring my family to for extended family vacations. The views are breathtaking, the villa I personally built is the ultimate in luxury and the staff I have trained can compete with the best anywhere in the world. The gardens are maintained by 3 gardeners and are spectacular - extending into the house with potted plants and trees and orchids everywhere. See www.greatviewjamaica.com
10 staff serve guests including a chef trained in international cuisine, 2 butlers providing 24 hour
service including concierge service, 2 housekeepers and laundress, driver and gardeners.
There are large common spaces for group gatherings but also private patios and nooks to 'getaway'. Greatview boasts a games room with arcade games, pool table and foosball table, a private air conditioned gym, treehouse for kids, infinity pool with waterfall into lower pool and hot tub.
A wealth of adventures are at hand: golfing, snorkling, scuba-diving, beaches, the night life of Montego Bay, tennis, fishing, sailing, waterfall climbing, hiking, horseback riding, shopping, and visiting historic sites.
We are at a loss for words to adequately describe this extraordinary experience. The attention to detail and friendly kind service has made this our best vacation ever! Thank you for tolerating our loudness and the additional people with such graciousness. We were very happy to have this private retreat from all the wedding guests. We look forward to next year. Thank you.
I wanted to take time to let you know how much we enjoyed spending time at Greatview. It is a phenomenally, amazing villa and I only have good reviews to offer about the accommodations, the staff, and setting and the overall experience. Each member of your staff blew us away.
Morgan was so attentive and was spot on for everything we needed. Aaron is world class and I can see what an invaluable resource he is. Damion with that award winning smile, set the bar when he called to check on us on our way back from Kingston. That's a personal touch that you don't often see and it really went a long way.
Sherri-Ann, Donna, Pamela = amazing. The house tour and room orientations, nice touch! Turn down service, laundry wrapped in the scarf-draped baskets; no words to describe it. I only wished my housekeeper could come to you for training.
Let me not forget about the gardening staff. Ricardo, David and Mark, who kept us in stitches. They were all kind-hearted and free spirited and a pleasure to be around. The hike to Mt. Zion I'm told was informative and inspiring. The ladies were so grateful for the opportunity to spend the morning with Mark and Ricardo and learned so much about the land.
Of course, I saved the best for last. Colin, dear Colin whom I was told came out of his shell while we were around. He was so delightful and we are all still craving his meals. I only regret not having more time to spend some time in the kitchen with him while he was preparing dinner. I have a passion in cooking and would have loved to see him in action.
The house, it speaks for itself and agreed it is indeed a Greatview! It is the epitome of luxury, service and perfection at its grandest scale.
Many, many, many thanks to you and your staff for this wonderful experience. The attention to detail, the organization and sophistication of the process… it simply took my breath away. We all, were thoroughly impressed and have walked away with moments that will last us a lifetime.
When you stay at Greatview you will receive a membership at Half Moon Hotel, only a 2-minute drive or a short walk from the villa. Half Moon is situated on 400 acres that are ribboned by a two-mile long white sand beach. Guests have access to the Sunrise Beach, pools, tennis courts, fitness center and Half Moon’s 18-hole signature golf course.
