Almost like an illusion perched on the side of a mountain is Greatview, a magnificent villa in the Montego Bay area of Jamaica. The cliffhanging swimming pools at differing levels make a splendid sight from across the valley. The guiding hand of Greatviews creator and the commitment of its staff are evident in the upscale decor and careful attention to detail found at every corner.
Many features make Greatview particularly family friendly. Take advantage of the media room with library, Wi-Fi access and laptop, fitness room, Nintendo Wii as well as billiards, foosball, air hockey, ping pong and arcade tables. The Greatview property even includes a log cabin tree house nestled between Sea Grape and Poor Mans Orchid trees. Perfect for the magical world of the child, a winding staircase leads to a spacious living room furnished for special tree house lunches, games and crafts. A full staff, including driver and chef, are present to assist you with your needs.
Few villas capture open and airy with the mastery of design embodied at Greatview. The covered pavilion is no doubt the social heart of the villa. Its a great place from which to admire the vibrant colors, birdsongs and fragrances of the adjoining tropical gardens. For sun lovers, the deck over the kitchen offers an opportunity to catch some rays, while partial covering accommodates those who prefer shade. Amateur astronomers can congregate here at night to watch the stars through Greatviews telescope.
The six spacious and stately bedrooms at Greatview accommodate up to twelve guests. The main bedrooms include en-suite bathroom, air conditioning and cable TV. The sweeping views from each are mystifying and the well-chosen artworks provide feelings of familiarity.
Despite its formidable sheer mountain presence, the main floor rooms, covered pavilion and two master bedroom suites at Greatview are wheelchair accessible and designed to accommodate the physically challenged. This luxury retreat makes a perfect destination for multi-generational families or a group of friends looking to get away from it all. Close to many premiere golfing options, there will surely be something for everyone at Greatview!

The staff at Greatview made our week so special. We took two other couples along and everyone raved about our week. Would recommend it to both adults and children.
We had a wonderful family get together at the Greatview Villa on Jamaica. The property is outstanding with beautiful flowers and trees on the outside and very comfortable features on the inside, like an outside shower, that made the trip special. The staff is amazing and very warm and welcoming. They were extremely flexible to our needs, including a 19 month old child and just so much fun to be with! They helped us plan the week just the way we wanted it to be. We would highly recommend this vacation for a family who wanted to make a very special memory. We sure did.
This was one of our all time favorite family vacations we have ever experienced. Jamaica is a beautiful country with even more beautiful people. Our stay at the Greatview Villa was absolutely perfect. As if the spectacular view, beautifully appointed home, and incredible food wasn't enough, the staff was so far beyond our expectations that we just can't rave enough about them adequately. They treated us as if we were their family and I know that each and every one of us felt that way about each of them. There could never be a staff anywhere that we would love any more! We are excited to return there Thanksgiving 2016! We have already decided on our dates. We will miss them all until then and look forward to our reunion. Thank you James D'Silva for your recommendation of the Greatview Villa!
This was the trip of a lifetime. The villa is gorgeous and the landscaped grounds that surround it are breathtaking and meticulously maintained. The staff is absolutely incredible and bend over backwards to suit villa guests. This vacation was perfect from the second we arrived at the villa until our departure.
Greatview was the perfect family get away retreat. It catered to every whim for children, parents and grandparents. Dining as a family without the worries of shopping or clean up was better than dining in a 5 star restaurant! The staff at the Villa was warm and efficient. The layout of the Villa offered privacy and intimacy at the same time!
