VILLA KELSO is conveniently located in the town of Duncans only moments from Silver Sands Beach (guests have full access to the beach and bar/restaurant) and within a short drive to Glistening Waters (1 of 3 bioluminescent bays in the world) and equidistance to the attractions Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. KELSO has spectacular views of
the Caribbean Sea and neighboring views of Silver
Sands and Jamaica's north coast. Enjoy the private
swimming pool, large furnished verandah and beautiful
manicured gardens while staring off into the the blue
sky and sea.
Just 35 minutes from Montego Bay, 15 from Falmouth,
a UNESCO historic site, and set in the tiny village
of Duncans — in a parish where 88 great house
sugar plantations once held sway — this elegant
villa, owned by a prominent 'old Jamaica' family,
is unlike any other on island.
Totally-private and hidden away behind canary-yellow
walls and wrought iron gates, with manicured lawns
and gardens that look out to sea, Villa Kelso honors
the Scottish heritage of its Jamaican owner.
Here, you'll find treasures: fine English, Scottish,
Jamaican and American antiques; a classic West Indies
covered verandah -- a sweeping 70 feet of breeze-cooled
outdoor living space -- fine china, silver; plus mementoes
of a gracious, yet little known way of island life.
The style is elegant, comfortable and cosseting.
For a wedding or anniversary, a memorable reunion,
birthday party or company celebration of up to 150
guests -- or just one extraordinary holiday for yourself,
family & friends -- it's very easy to fall
in love with Villa Kelso.
Relax poolside in
the jacuzzi, or on the villa's own private beach, less than a 10 minute drive away -- Mr. Wilson will be please to take you there daily or for a day trip to Ocho Rios...wherever you like.
Dine casually on the terraces or expansively in the
antique mahogany-filled dining room.
Gather in the spacious living room or around the
baby grand piano. You'll find many hideaways here
for a good book, a good chat or a very good private
Ride through the surf and over the hillside. Snorkel.
Windsurf. Bamboo raft down a lazy river. Stroll along
glorious white talcum powder sands.
