Saint James Parish Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, Beach Front, Tennis Court, Pool, Fully Staffed

Welcome to Serenity on the Beach, a wonderful 4 bedroom private beachfront villa located on Jamaica’s stunning north coast. Its prize location is a waterfront acre 8 miles west of Montego Bay.

Villa Serenity artfully combines contemporary and Caribbean-style architecture with its superb spaces defined by airy octagonal gazebos and high cedar ceilings. Elegant and pretty blue and white fabrics and cool marble floors are throughout. Each chic bedroom opens to a sitting area that is a paradise for lazy private afternoon naps or magical all-day gazing at the changing light on the Caribbean Sea ~ practically at your doorstep.

Make the perfect start to each of your serene days at this Jamaican villa with the wonderful aroma of eye-opener coffee trays that are silently presented outside each bedroom door while you are still asleep. Follow this with magnificent and energising morning walks down the long beach just a few steps outside. Sunset beach walks are spectacular and an ideal way to set a magical ambience for the evening. Night-time walks to the point reveal the night light show of the town of Montego Bay across the crystal water.

Four bedrooms and the living room are connected by a long furnished marble veranda. The veranda adjoins the pool terrace, an idyllic spot for cocktails and evening hors d`oeuvres served under the palm trees. The staff are more than happy to give the special treat of a delicious home-cooked dinner on the beach. An undeniably stunning place to dine. Count your blessings if there’s a full moon!

Just beyond the veranda and pool, a terraced walkway leads to the second of 2 outdoor showers, lower waterfront terrace, beach and sea. On calm evenings, you may see our local fishermen laying their nets by torchlight. If the night produces a good catch, they’ll return early in the morning with fresh fish or lobster to sell to the Serenity cook for dinner.

STAFF:While staying in Villa Serenity you will be personally looked after by our wonderful team of staff. The staff includes a cook, butler, housekeeper, night watchman and laundress who will cater for your every need. The warm staff of four work as a team and are cross-trained so no guest is ever without legendary Jamaican service and hospitality.

If you`ve left your pets behind while you take a vacation, be advised that Serenity is home to our beloved pups, Spot (brown & white Jamaica dog) and Wrinkles (beautiful Rhodesian Ridgeback). They love children and the beach!

Truly Amazing

  • 5 of 5

1. The staff were so warm, professional and lovely. They accommodated all of our requests with a friendly smile. We couldn’t have been happier and did not want to leave. The food was out of this world. The villa was so beautiful and comfortable…and so luxurious! I loved the décor. Thank you so much to all the staff here for the vacation of a lifetime and the team at Excpetional Villas for helping with everything.

Serenity shares a basketball hoop and private tennis court with neighbouring villa Tranquillity (bring racquets and balls). Combining Serenity and Tranquillity creates a 10-bedroom compound with 2 pools, tennis court, long beachfront and staff of 10. Beyond Tranquility is our glamorous neighbour, Noble House on the Beach, which accommodates 8 or 10 more guests. Combining these 3 homes creates a 15-bedroom compound with 3 pools, tennis court, long beachfront and staff of 18. This remarkable waterfront trio is a favorite for weddings and family reunions. All 3 villas are child friendly and very private from each other.

100 yards offshore is Holden's Reef, a continuation of the barrier reef complex that fronts much of Jamaica's north coast. Easily reachable by kayak, this live reef is home to a myriad of tropical fish and corals. At low tide, portions protrude above the water so you can step from your kayak to snorkel in shallow water. On the ocean side, deeper waters beckon the more adventurous or scuba equipped.

Enclosed by a cradle of hills with stunning views of the western coastline, Montego Bay’s lovely beaches are just one of the reasons why it is so popular. Montego Bay is a busy place with the centre of activity centred along Gloucester Avenue which has been renamed the “Hip Strip”, bars, restaurants and gift shops line most of the avenue. The strip ends with the infamous Margaritaville and soon after this you will come to Montego Bay’s most famous beach called Doctor’s Cave Beach. At the end of the hip Strip, the sea emerges once again with a lovely stretch of beach with some great snorkelling.

Downtown Montego Bay is not touristy but great to visit if you want to get a flavour of local Jamaican culture. It can be quite chaotic and colourful with lots of fruit and vegetable markets and local shops

The area to the north and south of Montego Bay has much to offer including:

Golf

Montego Bay features some great golf courses including:

• Tryall Club

• Half Moon

• Cinnamon Hill

• White Witch at the former Ritz Carlton

Rose Hall & Greenwood Plantation House

The era of plantation slavery comes very much to the fore once you travel east of Montego Bay where you will find two palatial great houses that have been opened up as tourist attractions. Closest to Montego Bay is Rose Hall which was the former home of the “White Witch” Annie Palmer. She came to Rose Hall as the wife of its owner John Rose Palmer and is reputed to have murdered him and two more husbands after him as well as numerous lovers. The “White Witch of Rose Hall” has fascinated generations, and even today, there are those who claim to see Annie passing through the Great House. The supposedly haunted house has day and night time tours both of which are really fascinating.

Greenwood Great House is more interesting in terms of its architecture than Rose Hall. It was built in 1790 and is a beautiful building and definitely the greatest great house in Jamaica. It commands amazing coastal views and filled with original fittings and curiosities. Greenwood great house probably has the finest antique museum in the Caribbean.

Horseback Riding

There are many opportunities to go horse riding around Montego Bay. Chukka Blue has excellent horses and guides which is 5 minutes west of Tryall. You can start with a ride in the mountains; end with a gallop on the beach. There is another Chukka Blue near Ocho Rios. In addition an excellent equestrian centre with sand arena is located at Half Moon Equestrian Centre and you will find mountain riding at the Rocky Point Stables.

Calico Sailing and Undersea Tours

Explore Montego Bay’s marine environment and coral reefs aboard a modern semi-submarine or enjoy a pirate cruise aboard the Calico Pirate ship. Telephone: 952 5860

Doctor's Cave Bathing Club

Doctor’s Cave Bathing Club features white sands and crystal clear water right in the centre of Montego Bay’s Hip Strip. Dr Alexander McCatty donated Doctors Cave as a bathing club in 1906. The seawater is reputed to have curative powers.

Dreamer Catamarans

This is a great day out aboard a sight-seeing or sunset cruise on a 53-65 foot sailing catamaran. There is an open rum bar as well as dancing and foot massages.

Tennis

There are plenty of tennis courts for day or night play at Half Moon, Holiday Inn, Racquet Club and also for members only the Tryall Club and Round Hill.

Air Tours: Island Hopper

See the grandeur of Jamaica's mountains and coastline by helicopter. Approx $750 per hour.

Appleton Rum Distillery

Dating back to 1655, Appleton is the oldest rum distillery in Jamaica. Its rums are considered by many to be the best in Jamaica. The tour takes you around the factory and explains the whole production process. You will also get the opportunity to sample various rums.
