“Highland House Zen”
Reviewed 29 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

If you are looking for a historic house in the Jamaican hills, Hammerstein Highland house is your place. This tastefully styled, cozy yet grand beautiful villa was the answer to my mid-winter blues. With a staff lead by the gracious Carl, our stay was perfection. The food was sublime with dishes that were local and fresh. My only regret is eating every ounce of my dessert every night. Besides the food, the grounds are beautiful and the perfect setting for getting a bit of exersize. There is a yoga studio below, a library full of books and fun DVD's, a few places to venture out to making this a most pleasant holiday destination for some serious R and R.

“Old School Jamaica and The Sound of Music"”
Reviewed 26 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

If you like old fashioned tropical glamour with a view almost as good as that of the opening sequence of the Sound of Music then Hammerstein Highland House is for you. Built in the 1950s by the Oscar Hammerstein, the lyric and book writing partner of Richard Rodgers, and maintained by current American owners, it has the timeless classy vibe of a place trying just hard enough. The décor is largely white with splashes of bold pastels that bring Jonathan Adler and Kelly Wearstler to mind - without the pretense. The staff is sublime, quiet and efficient and the fresh locally sourced meals by the chef - with ingredients from the property's organic garden are full of traditional Jamaican zest. The pool is fresh as a lake, each room generous and unique. The villa is a ten minute drive up a hill from the bustle of overwrought Montego Bay with its built up beaches and traffic. What a difference a mountain road makes. Yet it's all happily less than a half hour from the airport and the intensely posh Round Hill -- for dinner among the excessive and elite. Unique, divine!

Thank you Keressa and all the staff at the House and a special thanks to Calbert Brooks and his band who rounded off a very special day

“Heavenly, Magical and Blissful overlooking Montego Bay”
Reviewed 9 May 2013 for a stay in March 2013

The moment you walk inside you will immediately forget all worries!!!! The Highland House is the most relaxing and blissful home for a vacation. The friendly staff are fabulous. The view overlooking Montego Bay is divine. Each bedroom is a comfortable suite and creatively decorated. It is so perfect you want to leave to go back to reality.
