GREATVIEW at HALF MOON is one of the undisputed finest private homes in this collection.

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.

Eight 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, ice maker 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. 

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.

Reviews

Let me say that our week at Greatview was amazing! I know you receive countless glowing reviews about your villa bookings. I also know I am extremely picky and pay attention to so many details. Then, Dave has his own criteria that can make my villa selections a bit of a challenge. You have come through for us on so many occasions. I always wonder in anticipation if you can top some our previous stays, especially after a great stay at Allamanda last year. But, Greatview surpassed every experience we have had to date. Within 24 hours of our arrival, Dave was telling me he would no-doubt be interested in returning to Greatview. He reiterated that sentiment several times through the week. In fact, he even joked that we could have stayed a second week when we were asking our butler about upcoming bookings at the villa once we left.

Aside from the stunning decor, wonderful layout and spectacular location, one of the significant benefits at Greatview was the air conditioned study where Dave could play his virtual reality video games (his new hobby). Dave was able to have a perfect, cool area to spend his days. We have stayed in a few villas with family rooms or TV rooms, but they were either not air conditioned, the internet was too weak in that part of the house, etc. Of course, the patio was also perfect for Dave to work a few hours each day and still be near me in the pool (a bonus for me!). Plus, it was great to watch our movies, etc. at night in the air conditioned family room without having to retreat to the bedroom right after dinner. Although, the Greatview master suite would have been plenty comfortable!

One of the other cool bonus features of our visit was the opportunity to meet Margaret and receive a copy of her book about her Greatview journey. What a great lady and she has such an inspiring story! I had looked for her book online so I was thrilled when they handed me my own copy. It was fascinating to read about her challenges of building in Jamaica. In addition, we really liked our butler and our chef. We pride ourselves in being low maintenance and we don't really need to be checked on too often. Lemar fit the bill. Germaine's upbeat demeanor was a pleasure to encounter through the day, even though he was not actually our butler during our stay. Oral really seemed to care that we were happy with the menu and asked a few times through the week if we wanted him to change anything. Oral even sent us home with fresh-baked cake and banana bread which was so sweet of him. The staff really made us feel comfortable, which I know you also hear so often. But, we like our solitude and this staff offered a great balance of hospitality and service.

Thank you again for yet another wonderful villa vacation! Dave and I both think you are just wonderful!!!

Brenda J.

Where to begin......This was our second stay at Greatview. We thought the first was phenomenal and didn't think it could get better. We were wrong! It was even better the second time! The house is beautiful, yet very child friendly and very comfortable for adults. The caring and attentive staff at Greatview made us feel at home. They were always there to meet all our needs yet they were never over bearing. We had children ranging in age from 7-13 and they all agreed this was their best vacation ever. From arts and crafts with Christine the nanny to ping pong and basketball, everyone was kept busy. All the staff was wonderful but the new butler Jermaine really connected to the kids with his wonderful sense of humor. Jermaine was so professional, playful and engaging. A fabulous new addition to an already wonderful staff. Colin the chef prepared creative, delicious meals. We never had any desire to go out for meals because we knew those meals wouldn't rival Colin's. He did a wonderful job of preparing many choices for our group of 11. Different kids with different demands. Colin met every demand and exceeded our expectations. Greatview is a relaxing, beautiful home that allows you to be as active as you would like. We can't wait to return to Greatview and see all those friendly faces again. We have already booked our next stay. The only negative is.....it's not soon enough!!
