Knockando on Round Hill

KNOCKANDO on ROUND HILL is beloved by families for its thoughtfully-planned layout that has created privacy and proximity in one beautiful villa.
The bonus is its unique location, sited for its breathtaking blue views of skies, sea and sunsets from its enviable perch atop famous Round Hill ...
... and lush garden views around the grounds.
The living room opens wide to the heart of the house ~ a 1,300-square-foot verandah with generous seating areas in white canvas on oversize bamboo sofas and chairs under five ceiling fans.
At one end of the verandah is a bamboo bar, icemaker, fridge and cable television ....
... with a window looking into the Game Room where there is fun for all ages!
Around dusk, the butler serves hors d'oeuvres on the verandah or pool terrace ...
... during the western sunset.  Don't miss it.
Chef Sherry Ann is a pleaser.  From Continental to Jamaican, hearty to vegetarian and vegan, sophisticated fare to chicken fingers for kids ... she can prepare meals for children and adults at the separate hours that please all.
Her presentation is always part of the enjoyment.
Whether barefoot or black tie, any nights of the week or on special occasions, dinners can be served on the elegant mahogany dining room table.
Most guests opt for casual alfresco breakfasts and lunches in the north gazebo.
Adjoining the verandah is the living room with vaulted ceiling ...
... television, sound system and part of Knockando's collection of original art.

The 650-sq-ft Master Bedroom suite on cool marble floors ...
...  adjoins a dressing room with a restored antique lace-trimmed spindle crib.
The dressing room leads to the newly-renovated master bath and large walk-in shower with double shower heads.
The Master Suite connects to the Middle Bedroom with 2 queen beds.  The connecting door may be left open for family convenience or locked for privacy.
The Blue Room, also on cool marble floors, includes an interior hallway to a small back room with one queen bed for child, nanny or other adult. The connecting pocket door may be left open or closed at night.

In a wing just beyond the kitchen is Olivia's Treehouse ...
... a magnet for toddlers and beyond!
The Treehouse includes a fantasy bedroom where 1 to 6 kids ... or 5 + a nanny ... can play, nap and sleep through the night, safe and secure.
Upstairs in the same wing is king-bedded Treetops for parents, just a stairway above Olivia's Treehouse, yet totally private.
Treetops is also a favorite room for honeymooners.  Louvered doors open to a wrap-around private deck ... and its pink marble shower offers a glorious view of the sea and sunset!
Its en-suite bathroom has a pink marble shower and long view of the Caribbean Sea. Excellent shower for watching sunsets.
Room Service is available to Treetops and to all bedrooms.
The Cottage is a 400-sq-ft building a few steps from the main villa with its own wet bar and mini-fridge. An excellent handicap accommodation, the Cottage has a wheelchair accessible shower and bench, booster toilet with side rails, and Jacuzzi bathtub.
Guests have complimentary use of 2 golf carts and an electric wheelchair for easy trips down the hill to the beach club to dine, sun and swim.
Or stay 'home' and spend lazy afternoons in the south gazebo.
A nanny's room is included in Knockando's staff quarters, and a special 'dining garden' is available on request for children's cuisine.  Reservations required.
Memorable at Knockando will be the warmth and friendly affection ...
... of the entire staff of five.  You won't want to leave.

Montego Bay, Saint James Parish, Jamaica
More than 50 years ago, a visionary named John Pringle dreamed of turning a magical Jamaican hillside and waterfront into a luxurious retreat and he named it Round Hill. He sat upon the hill, gazed over the deep blue sea and selected the site for his own home, the genesis of what was to become a renowned resort for guests from around the world. Today, that home is Knockando, distinguished by one of the most breathtaking views in the Caribbean.
