Goat Hill   Montego Bay, Jamaica

Goat Hill sits on a remarkable site, located specifically to benefit from the spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea and the most favorable tradewinds day and night. The east view captures the sunrise, Montego Bay and the Great River ~ the west view is an equally lovely vista toward Round Hill, the Caribbean Sea and the sunset. The entire property has been lavishly renovated.

Villa Description

Designed by the son of architect Edward Durrell Stone, Goat Hill is an ingenious arrangement of individual pavilions ~ wrapped by cut stone terraces and balconies, shaded from the sun by deep cedar eaves. Each bedroom is reached by an exterior stone stairway. The result is great privacy in every living space. Each pavilion has three walls of single panel glass doors that open wide to the magnificent day and night views and tradewinds. Textures of rich mahogany, highly polished brass and white canvas upholstery form the chic interior design. A tiled bar and adjacent powder room adjoin the living room. Rooms are adorned by original art and unique objets d`art. Goat Hill is uncluttered, tasteful and sophisticated.

Chef Patricia recently upgraded her skills during a three-week apprenticeship with Norma Shirley, renowned head chef of Norma’s on the Terrace in Kingston. Each day at Goat Hill begins with eye-opener coffee trays placed outside bedroom doors so guests may experience the glorious sunrise over the bay from the privacy of their own balcony. Breakfasts are served on the west verandah under the ackee tree in view of the graceful slope of Round Hill across the water. Lunches are served at poolside or on the east terrace to take advantage of the breezes and beautiful view over the deep blue bay. Delicious home-cooked dinners are served by soft candlelight on a gleaming mahogany table as the night lights of the town of Montego Bay and passing cruise ships sparkle like tiny diamonds across the water.

Kingsize 4-poster bamboo bed. 3 glass walls open to balcony and ocean view. Just outside the bedroom is the 10’ x 10’ Jacuzzi. The en-suite bathroom has large open shower by a lighted garden of ginger lilies. A special feature of the master bathroom is its own hidden tub-for-two in a private walled garden.

Bedroom 3 - Poolside
Optional kingsize or twin beds; 3 glass walls that open to a cut stone terrace, swimming pool and ocean view; en-suite bathroom has large open shower area and lighted walled garden.

All bedrooms and bathrooms have new South American cherry hardwood floors. Each 15 x 20 bedroom is air-conditioned, commands a stunning ocean view and features Italian cotton linens. Each bathroom has a large sunken shower area and a west wall of louvers that open to lighted gardens planted with ginger lilies. All bathrooms feature Starfish Oils amenities (soaps, bath oils, hot tub fizz, candles), Grohe rainfall showerheads and double vanities with above-counter porcelain basins. Because of Goat Hill's architecture, including outside stone stairways to each bedroom and balconies with open flooring, we do not recommend Goat Hill for children unless nannies are employed for oversight.

    Kelly & Geraldine J. – Wilmot, SD – November 2013
    The food was excellent and the staff listened to all our requests. The grounds were well-kept and the Jacuzzi was hot every night! We loved all the comfy furniture. Our favorite spot was the couch outside – perfect for after-dinner relaxing. We will definitely be back!

    Shelley C. – St. Charles, IL – March 2013
    We couldn’t feel more welcome here! Miss Patricia, Sharon, Patrick and Ozzie take such good care of us – we want for nothing! Thank you for making our stay so pleasurable. We love it at Goat Hill and will always return.

    Katharine S. - Ontario, Canada - February 2013
    The Goat Hill staff made this special trip a memorable one. The villa is spectacular with fabulous amenities and stunning views. Every comfort is taken into account -- every room has its own highlight and charm. The butler looked after our every need and the staff were charming, gracious and cared well for us. Fabulous food!
