About Yanique Redwood
My husband and I live and work in Washington, DC. I am from Jamaica, and he is from Miami, Florida. We have two young adult children, and we love to travel (and eat while traveling!), read and spend time with family (especially while traveling!)
Yanique Redwood purchased this Villa in 2016
Why Yanique Redwood chose Montego Bay
When we considered where we might buy a vacation home, a couple of places in the Caribbean came to mind, but it didn't take long to decide that it had to be Jamaica! We have traveled all over the Caribbean, but we haven't found the same combination of great weather, beaches, culture and food.
What makes this Villa unique
When we walked through the front door with the realtor, the view of Montego Bay through the verandah doors took our breath away. We had to take a few steps back in order to digest it all. We continue to pinch ourselves. The verandah has become our favorite place on the entire property. We wake up super early just to sit and take in the view. The nighttime view of the city lights is also spectacular. In addition, we love the light-filled, breezy spaces throughout the house and the high ceilings, hardwood and ceramic floors and traditional louvre windows. And did we mention the views from every bedroom? Although we were encouraged to buy in one of the popular subdivisions close to the resorts, we wanted a home that was tucked away from the hustle and bustle yet close to all that Montego Bay has to offer. The fact that the villa used to be owned by a famous painter--Michael Lester--was an added bonus. We have two signed reprints of his work in the foyer for your enjoyment.

Overall the experience was first class! The venue, the staff, and the view was outstanding! Woke up every morning to a great breakfast by Ms. Cordella followed by perfect recommendations from Yunique and Ronnie for things to do. Very friendly and welcoming. Can't wait to come back!
Couldn't ask for More
This unexpected gem nestled on the hillside gives a quaint yet sprawling feel.
The View of Montego Bay and it's surroundings breathtaking. The property and amenities prestine, with exceptional staff that make you feel oh so at home.
Can't wait to revisit
Point of View Villa & Spa provides tranquility, breathtaking views, indoor/outdoor living, beauty and a sense of being home! From the moment we arrived we were greeted by Ms. Cordella and Lorraine. They were truly accommodating the entire length of our stay and always made sure we were taken care of. I traveled with 5 other ladies and we collectively had the same sentiments about Point of View. I stayed in the Oasis room which is a separate villa from the main house, but still very close. The room, closet and bathroom were so spacious! The amenities are just as they are pictured/described on the website. Ms. Cordella and Lorraine cooked savory authentic Jamaican dishes that left you wanting seconds and thirds! My experience at Point of View has left a lasting impression that is sure to bring me back soon!
Montego Bay's Hidden Gem
Point of View was just the trip my friends and I needed to start our year off right. Tucked away overlooking the island, this was better than I imagined in person. The view was absolutely breathtaking and the house was amazing. The pictures definitely don't do this place justice. Cordella and crew were the best hosts making sure things were well taken care of everyday. I could literally eat her cooking all day everyday. The beds and amenities were more than comfortable; you could tell some serious care went into decorating this place. There was more than enough room for the nine of us to enjoy this house.
The booking process was so easy and made coordinating the trip a breeze thanks to Yanique and her constant communication. Planning our daily trips and arrival and drop offs to the airport made my life a lot easier and the trip much more enjoyable.
Our driver, Mr. Beckford definitely made the trip for us! He took us to the great local spots to eat when we weren't eating Cordella's cooking. He also spent a lot of time just getting to know us which made spending the day with him more enjoyable.
From Yanique to Cordella to Mr. Beckford and Mr. P, the Point of View staff definitely knows the value of customer service and how to treat their guests. To top it all off, it happened to be my birthday one of the days we stayed there and everyone helped decorate! I was truly humbled. After 5 days, I was definitely planning on how I could stay forever! I would highly recommend Point of View to anyone traveling to Montego Bay.
Best staff anywhere
Really just everything you could possibly want in a vacation retreat. The house is beautiful, the beaches are beautiful, the views are stunning. But if you’re going to make the choice to be away from the center of everything right in Montego Bay, then the team taking care of you becomes so much more important. Cordella, Stan, Lorraine, Tracy, Mr P, and Yanique were just incredible and made our stay so easy. Getting to know them was definitely the best thing about staying at Point of View. Can’t wait to go back.
Some places are just too precious for words, but I'll try....first, the view and grounds of the villa are absolutely breathtaking. To be greeted each morning with those turquoise waters and view of MoBay...well, it is like instant meditation. But, what puts this place over the top is definitely the love and care that has been put into every corner and amenity of the house, which are cared for diligently by Cordella and Mr. P. It is absolutely curated for you to feel like you are valued as a guest. Cordella's cooking and gracious accommodation of our requests were astounding. And we were well taken care of by Traci's massages and Stan's willingness to drive us to our daily adventures with his local insights. I was there to rest and relax with colleagues who have become friends, and we were able to hive and just be our human selves with presence. I can't wait to go back!
