What is their favourite memory or story at Villa 2?

Ms. Jentine loves baking her famous chocolate cake for her guests’ special occasions. “We often have guests celebrating their anniversary. I love to surprise them with my special chocolate cake!” she says. Whenever they have their shareholders in house, she knows to ensure that their favourites are prepared and waiting, “the owner calls our grater cakes ‘ginger cakes’ and he loves them. When the kids were younger I’d prepare springtime cookies and lemon/papaya ice cream,” she says.

What is the “best” feature of Villa 2?

The view. This villa is often requested because of its breathless view of the ocean and island greenery. Guests do not have to go any further than their bedrooms to enjoy this view.

Is there any interesting décor in Villa 2?

Not specifically, however, the shareholder has a love for Caribbean carvings and paintings, therefore, they are tastefully displayed around the villa.

Rita Marley, Kenny Rogers and Horace Burrell, just to name a few.

Both the owner and the owner’s daughter got married at Round Hill. Villa 2 and Villa 3 both have the same owner. Most of the fruit trees on the villa property were not there originally, the previous gardener planted them. Jentine and Charlet are mother and daughter, respectively.
