The Wharf House - Old World Charm By The Sea

Located in: Montego Bay
The Wharf House is a beautiful and historic 18th century property located on the shores of the Montego Bay Lagoon, a large saltwater inlet of the Caribbean Sea which is part of the Montego Bay Marine Park. For several decades, The Wharf House has also been - and remains until today - one of the homes of our family.

We are not - nor do we aim to be - a hotel. We are a small and intimate villa, offering four bedrooms furnished with family-owned antiques and lovely artwork from the Caribbean. Each of our rooms is unique, but all of them reflect - we hope - our passion for “beautiful things”…be they furniture, paintings, art & craft items, or merely the views you have from your bedroom windows.

The Wharf House has its own small private pebble beach (accessible only to Wharf House guests), a swimming pool shaded by massive cotton trees, a large seaside dock, and expansive tropical gardens dotted with a wide variety of fruit trees - mangoes, coconuts, ackees, breadfruit, avocados, lemons and pomegranates. Our staff will be happy to help you to sample some of these fruity delights.
Our property is home to a wide variety of wild life. The lagoon teems with fish and other sea creatures, and our gardens are filled with birds & bees & butterflies & lizards. And, yes, these wonderful creatures sometimes make their way into our house...and we would not want it any other way. Please bear this in mind when considering a vacation at our home.

We - and several generations before us - have greatly enjoyed living at The Wharf House, and we very much hope that you, too, will enjoy your stay…however long or short it may be.

The driving time from Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport to the Wharf House is approximately 15 - 20 minutes. From our property, you can reach the Fairview Shopping Center (with its large supermarkets, pharmacies, and wide variety of trade shops) in about 10 minutes, by car.

The Wharf House has four bedrooms. All bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans and A/C. The rate for renting the entire property is US$900 per night. If you wish to rent only one, or two, or three bedrooms, please contact us for a quote.

Two of our bedrooms - the Sea View Bedroom & the Garden View Bedroom - are located in the Main House. These two bedrooms are adjacent to the common living room & inside dining area.
The "Sea View Bedroom" has an antique king-size four poster bed, a walk-in closet, en-suite bathroom, and is equipped with a ceiling fan and A/C.
The "Garden View Bedroom" has antique twin beds, a walk-in closet, and is equipped with a ceiling fan and A/C. The Garden View bathroom is located in the Main House, across the living room.

Our other two bedrooms are, in fact, stand-alone cottages.

The “Sea Side Cottage” is located against the very shores of the Montego Bay Lagoon, offering lovely views of the Caribbean Sea from your four poster king-size bed. This cottage has its own small private terrace, walk-in closet, en-suite bathroom, ceiling fan & A/C.

The “Pool Side Cottage”, located a little further back in the gardens, is very private, and has antique twin beds and its own separate access to the shared swimming pool. It, too, has a walk-in closet & en-suite bathroom with shower, ceiling fan & A/C.

Our VRBO listing shows photographs of each bedroom - but if you need or want advice on selecting the bedroom ideally suited for you, please contact us. We will be happy to be of help.

There are several "common" areas, which - unless you have rented the entire property - you will share with other guests: the living room and inside dining room in the Main House, the kitchen, the dock, the swimming pool & gardens, and the pebble beach.

Our rates include Continental Breakfast, all taxes, and free high-speed WiFi. A staff gratuity of 15% of the total cost of your stay is customary & will be very much appreciated.
Please note that during our main season - from December until April - we give preference to those bookings which are for our entire property, and for a minimum stay of one week.

B&B service:
Our Continental Breakfast is served, buffet-style, between 8am and 10am. Depending on the weather, breakfast is served either on the dock, or in the common living/dining room. You are, of course, free to help yourself to your breakfast from the buffet & carry it to your room…or to any part of the property which takes your fancy.

Our Continental Breakfast consists of seasonally-available tropical fruits, eggs cooked to your liking, breads and toast and pastries, jams, fresh fruit juices, and freshly-brewed Blue Mountain coffee & a variety of teas.

The Wharf House has a separate & large building, which can be used for meetings, Yoga, dance, and retreats of all kinds.
A small kayak & two paddle boards are available for guests who wish to explore the Lagoon. Snorkeling equipment is available for those who wish to explore the nearby reef. Also on property: a ping-pong table & a wide variety of board games.

The Wharf House is staffed at all times by our live-in caretaker, Leroy, our housekeeper, Elisha, and our cook, Pinky.

Additional services - Cook:
The services of our excellent cook, Miss Pinky, are included in our rental rate, but you will have to purchase your own groceries for the preparation of your lunches and dinners. Please contact us for cost details and general information.
Please note that we do not permit guests to cook their own meals.

Additional services - Driver:
If you require a driver, to get around…no problem. The Wharf House works with a reliable and reputable licensed tourist taxi driver, Verol, who will be happy to take you anywhere you wish to go. This service comes at an additional charge. Contact us for cost details & general information.

Additional services - Massages, reflexologies, facials, Reiki, chiropracter, yoga classes etc.
The Wharf House has its own spa room, located right on the sea. Enjoy the sound of the waves lapping against the shore, as you are pampered by one of our professional therapists. These services are available by prior appointment only & come at an additional charge. Contact us for cost details & general information.

Four major golf courses, deep-sea fishing, scuba diving, sunset catamaran cruises, zip-lining, river rafting and horseback riding are all within easy reach of our property; as are several restaurants and jerk centers, a cinema, the famous Doctor’s Cave Beach, and much more. We will be happy to help you with reservations & recommendations.

You can also book the Wharf House (subject to availability) for an event: a wedding, spiritual retreat, party, family reunion, etc. Please contact us for conditions & pricing details.

The Wharf House is secured by Hawkeye Security’s 24 hour monitoring service.
