Almond Hill is a lovely, new private, 4 bedroom (one bedroom is a single) villa surrounded by a 500-acre coconut plantation with a large private pool.
The villa and grounds were designed by Prince Kasimir Korybut in 1993. The villa is tastefully decorated in colorful English chintz fabrics and comfortable new furniture inside and out. Tall library shelves in the high-ceilinged living room house an abundance of books plus the satellite television and VCR.
Spacious bathrooms with mirrored walls adjoin each bedroom. The master bath features an oversize tub and open shower area with floor-to-ceiling louvred doors that open to a walled garden. Just steps from the house is the large private pool. Its spacious gazebo is a favorite spot for shaded poolside lunches.
Perhaps best of all is Almond Hill’s design around the large furnished verandah … cooled by tradewinds … and located for its superb view nine miles across the sea to the harbor and village of Montego Bay. A haven for reading and napping, the verandah is most memorable for wonderful candlelight dinners served here in the romance of distant lights reflected on the water.
While completely private behind its iron entrance gates and not actually within Round Hill proper, Almond Hill is just minutes from prestigious Round Hill Hotel with shops, beach bar and excellent Continental restaurant.
If you’ve left your pets behind while you take a vacation, be advised that Almond Hill is home to three lovable dogs who are granted free run of the house and grounds.
