Greatview Vacation Rental

Greatview is one of the most glamorous private homes overlooking the Half Moon golf course and vast ocean vista.

Three world-class golf courses (Cinnamon Hill, Half Moon and White Witch) are within a five-minute drive.

The view is breathtaking ~ the deep blue sea to the north and magnificent mountains to the south. Here is the marriage of exquisite taste, beauty and comfort ~ floors of French limestone, Travertine marble and exotic pressed bamboo; walls of Barbadian coral stone and Venetian glaze. The details are immaculate and artistic. Furnishings are an exquisite combination of Asian antique and tropical colonial. Grounds are lush in orange and lime trees, avocado, papaya, mango, breadfruit, Poinciana, flame trees and delicate orchids.

Six well-appointed bedrooms are complemented by inside and outside dining areas, a snug television den and an air-conditioned gym complete with TV and fitness videos. A supplemental generator ensures that Greatview is never without electricity and air conditioning.

Greatview is among the best-managed and best-staffed villas in our group. A staff of 10 ensure the highest levels of service 24 hours a day. Our expert chef presents exquisite meals from the state-of-the-art kitchen with six-burner commercial gas stove and grill, two ovens, bread maker, rotisserie, microwave, wine cooler, icemaker and cappuccino/espresso machine. Chef Colin delights guests with his specialties of homemade pate, jerk chicken, lobster Newberg, grilled salmon in avocado sauce, pecan-crusted snapper, grilled shrimp and tenderloin, grasshopper pie and more. Table service is Wedgwood and Lenox china and sterling silver. Meals are served formally under the crystal chandelier or more casually on the al fresco 700-square-foot verandah overlooking the pool and magnificent ocean view.

Staffing at Greatview is extraordinary including two butlers who provide 24-hour concierge service, room service and breakfast in bed.

The large infinity-edge pool flows as a waterfall into the hot tub on the lower lawn. The poolside bar has a television, blender, smoothie-maker, and fridge stocked with drinks.

Greatview offers on-call massage and beauty treatments in a lovely indoor/outdoor setting, equipped with rainfall showers, steam room and stone massage. A few steps take you to hot tub and pools.

While numerous balconies and overlooks are part of Greatview’s contemporary architecture, the villa is child friendly. It offers complimentary cribs with mobiles, high chairs, playpen, baby toys and games, water toys, floats, water basketball and three tricycles. The shallow end of the pool can be roped off to define where deeper water begins. Greatview includes two connecting suites for families. Also notable is Greatview’s accommodation of guests who use wheelchairs or are physically challenged.

Greatview comes with three loved pets. Cara, a gentle 7-year-old Lab, Lucy, an English Cocker Spaniel and Spot, a plump and affectionate outside cat, live here. Neither bothers guests but both will come in to cuddle and play if invited.

Jamaica Travel Guide

Out of Many, One People

One of the Caribbean’s most popular villa destinations, Jamaica has something for everyone and every occasion. Many venture to Jamaica to tan and relax on the breathtaking beaches, while others come to enjoy the plethora of activities. Avid snorkelers and scuba divers can discover the beautiful coral reefs and exotic marine life. Coffee lovers will take pleasure in the delicious home-grown coffee from the famous Jamaican Blue Mountains, which are also ideal for hiking and horseback riding. Sightseers will want to climb the world-famous 600-foot-high Dunn's River Falls, and bird-lovers will enjoy the Rocklands Feeding Station, home to Jamaica’s 27 native species. Those who want to see beautiful sunsets should partake in the Jamaican tradition and head over to the famous Rick’s Cafe in Negril, where visitors will not only see magnificent sunset views, but also watch brave cliff-jumpers dive into the crystal-clear water.

A villa vacation in Jamaica is unique in that many of our villas come with a full staff (chef, butler, housekeeper and laundress) included. The friendly staff will treat you with their “No problem, mon” service, where everything you desire is at your beck and call.
