About the property


Welcome to Tranquillity on the Beach, a luxury 6 bedroom private beach front villa located on Jamaica’s stunning north coast of Montego Bay.

Villa Tranquillity is totally true to its name with its restful ambiance on a stunning 6,300-square-foot beachfront home on a spectacular Caribbean seascape and an acre of soft, immaculately landscaped lawns. Artful landscaping ensures year-round flowers in bloom which in turn ensure regular visits from hummingbirds and parrots. An old cut stone walkway leads through the beautifully lush garden to the beach, just a stone throw away from the villa.

Tranquility is the ideal spot for entertaining family and friends, especially on its wide sweeping waterfront that leads into shallow water for many yards out, a magical watery world for kids and adults alike. 100 yards offshore is Holden's Reef, a continuation of the barrier reef complex that fronts much of Jamaica's north coast. This live reef is home to a myriad of colourful tropical fish and corals. Easily reachable by kayak, at low tide, portions of the reef protrude above the water so you can step from your kayak to snorkel in shallow water.

The entrance of the villa whisks you away into paradise as you pass an indoor waterfall garden as you approach the spacious Great Room which opens to a beautifully furnished veranda. Memorable meals are served by the butler on the veranda overlooking two acres of elegantly landscaped grounds and the bluer than blue sea, or you may choose the inside formal dining room or even more magical is the romantic beach front gazebo by candlelight. Some nights, you may spot a few local fishermen as they ease through the water beyond the gazebo laying nets for the fresh catch that they deliver to your chef the next morning. The complete Caribbean ambiance is quite beautiful.

The chic Master Suite is at the east end of the veranda with french doors that open from the large bedroom to the wide covered porch where eye-opener coffee is placed each morning. The second Master Bedroom was added to increase Villa Tranquillity to 6 bedrooms with its louvered mahogany doors that open to the superb view over the lawn and gardens to the sea. Two smaller bedrooms are beyond the living room on the west end of the villa. The fifth bedroom and a smaller sixth bedroom most suitable for children are in the Beach Cottage across the lawn on the water’s edge.

My Oh My!! Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

We have been "home" almost a week and we are already planning to go back "home" to Tranquility. From the moment we arrived, the staff couldn't have been more welcoming and made us feel at ease from the first friendly "hello". The villa itself was spotless with the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in. I loved the furnishings and decor. It was sheer bliss for me not to have to cook, clean or wash a shirt for a week. Danny the chef is incredible and obviously very proud of his skills as an amazing cook. Every meal he prepared was cooked with love. His dishes are full of flavor and beautiful to look at too. As for Leeford the butler, I wish I could have smuggled him home in my suitcase. The whole staff team were just wonderful and they work so happily together, it's a joy to watch them. We loved everything about Tranquility, the house, the staff, the ambience, the food, the beach, the view. Emma and Noreen were a dream to work with and I will be using their exceptional service when booking our next trip to Tranquility.

A week of pure heaven

  • 5 of 5

My family of eight adults and two babies spent a wonderful week at this home. The staff was warm and willing to do anything to make us have a wonderful week. The house was clean and had everything necessary for our family. They brought in highchairs and cribs for us. Our laundry was done everyday if we requested. The chef, Danny was amazing and eager to please. He accommodated our vegetarians and meat eaters willingly and deliciously. Leeford, the butler could not have done more to ensure we were all well taken care of. Judith, Bridgette, Owen and Charlton rounded out a wonderful team. Having the beach so accessible made it easy for us with little children. We used the pool, kayaks, tennis court, snorkel gear etc. We arrived during an unprecedented rainstorm. The property was flooded due to the 8 inches of rain. The water quickly receded but there was a lot of debris on the beach from the storm. The landscaping crew worked tirelessly to clean up the beach and by the next day we were able to enjoy the water and beach. My family has already asked if we can rent this property again and make this "our place".
