About the Owner

Our family has owned Datura Villa since 1989 and I have been the manager since that time. While I live in New york City, I visit Datura frequently throughout the year and work closely with our property manager and concierge, Mr. Cheston Chisholm. Mr. Chsiholm has been employed since 1990 and he is also a licensed tourist driver and owns a 12 passenger mini-van for optional guest ground transportation. All of our staff are fully trained, honest, and have been employed for at least ten years.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We visited Datura Villa in Jan. 2014 for the 2nd time. Our first trip was a group of 3 families and this past trip was 5 couples. Both vacations were amazing. The staff makes the trip. Yes, the house is wonderful and the view beyond belief, but the staff makes the house come alive and enhances everything. Don't hesitate to book a week at Datura. Whether you want to be on the go the whole week or relaxing with a good book, you can have that type of vacation at Datura. 2 thumbs up!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
A friend invited me to spend a couple of days in Jamaica at Datura Villa last month, and I can't say enough about this beautiful property and the wonderful staff running the show! First of all, Datura Villa is located about 20 minutes from the airport in Montego Bay. Chisholm, the property manager, met me at the airport and pointed out some of the sights in Montego Bay as we drove to the villa, which is located on several acres of property with spectacular views of Montego Bay.

The accommodations are what I'd describe as "Old World Jamaica" with modern amenities, including new bathrooms, wifi throughout, a gym on the property, and a salt water pool and hot tub situated on a hillside overlooking Montego Bay. The house is comfortably furnished, with lots of space and separate areas for hanging out with friends or just curling up with a book and spending an afternoon undisturbed. To be perfectly honest, I was looking for a bit of a retreat, and thus had no desire to sightsee or go anywhere. The chef, Cherine, served three delicious meals every day - breakfast on the terrace, lunch "under the almond tree" (no joke), and dinner in the dining room. Everything is very casual, but I felt very well taken care of at the same time. The food was terrific, with great local ingredients and specialties at every meal. Much of the fruit at breakfast was grown on the property! I had no special requests with regard to ingredients, etc., but I was asked about allergies and food preferences. The jerk chicken and pork was a standout, as were all desserts and pastries. I believe the eggs came from chickens on the property next door. I even took home some of the homemade jerk sauce as gifts.

Every afternoon, several of us worked out with Henry, the on-site trainer. Henry is built like a tank and put us through our paces for an hour or so daily. The fitness room is in a new addition to the property, and has weights, machine, yoga mats, etc. After that, a nap, dinner and drinks on the terrace. I'm sure many guests go out or leave the property, but I was content to spend several quiet and very restful days at Datura Villa. I would highly recommend to friends, and will be returning again next year with a larger group, and I hope to be able to plan for this as an annual getaway!

Datura Villa - Great Caribbean holiday experience!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned form a wonderful holiday at Datura Villa overlooking Montego Bay and still remarking to myself how enjoyable it was. This time, my husband and I, and some friends did something different than staying at one of those large resorts or the touristy, all - inclusive spots. We pooled our funds to stay at Datura Villa – a gorgeous private residence that came equipped with a full staff and all the facilities you would want. It was a delightful holiday and to my mind – a far better version for a family or group of friends than the typical resort option. So to sum up – here are my top ten reasons why we loved our week at Datura.1. The View. Picturesque spot with a spectacular view of Montego Bay and the surrounding areas. At night, you were mesmerized by the stars above or the twinkling lights of the town below. 2. Beautiful Residence - a lovely and very comfortable private residence – with a subtle luxurious feel and all your creature comforts. 3. Gorgeous pool and hot tub over looking the bay ... and worth noting, the pool is all yours – in contrast to a resort where you are sharing with all the other guests! 4. Attentive and helpful Staff – from our driver Chisholm who is available to take us on outings, to the cook, Shereen who can accommodate your food interests in the most tasty ways, to Henry who is always ready to do a training session/stretch class.5. Perfect Base for Day Trips. We loved having both the quiet and privacy of the villa – and using it as a base for day trips to to check out various resorts, beaches and nearby attractions. eg snorkelling at Round Hill, spa activities at Half Moon, dinner out to a fine restaurants 6. Great Meals – tasty, healthy and with a Jamaican flair. One day we decided to splurge on lobsters. Shereen was able to arrange for their delivery that day and grilled them to perfection for us. 7. Lush Property - with different types of flowers and interesting vegetation. Every day I would do the walk down to the private gate as a morning exercise routine taking in all the lush plant vegetation, bamboo trees and flowers. 8. Work Out Facilities - nicely outfitted Fitness Building. 9. Security on site. 10. And lastly – everything is very easy and taken care of for you.
