Villa Description

A stunning renovation has created all-new design of picture-perfect bedrooms and modern en-suite bathrooms. Tall library shelves in the high-ceilinged living room house an abundance of books, movies, cable television and 6-speaker sound system. Notable are two new outdoor showers, one off the master bedroom, another by the pool.

Down a gentle slope a few steps from the house is the large private pool. Its poolside gazebo is a favorite spot for shaded lunches and private laptop time.

Perhaps best of all is Almond Hill's design around the comfy verandah ~ cooled by trade winds and located for its superb view nine miles across the sea to the harbor and town of Montego Bay. A haven for reading and napping, afternoon tea and conversation, the verandah is most memorable for wonderful candlelight dinners served here with the romance of distant lights of town and cruise ships reflecting on the bay.

While extraordinarily private behind its iron entrance gates and not actually within Round Hill proper, Almond Hill is situated in the Round Hill Estate, a one-minute drive from the Round Hill gate house, hotel, beach club and excellent Continental restaurant. Each week, two themed beach party buffets welcome Almond Hill guests for various fees.

If you left your pets behind while you take a vacation, be advised that Almond Hill is home to some lovable family dogs who are granted free run of the house and grounds. Dervy, Button and Survivor are totally friendly and fun. Cocoa is more of a sleeper. They all love guests!
