The Best Family-Friendly Villa Rentals In Jamaica


If you're on the hunt for a family-friendly summer vacation that will keep the adults relaxed and the kids entertained, look no further than a vacation rental in sun-splashed Jamaica. Jamaica has the rare combination of incredible natural beauty, kid-friendly fun, world-class golf and beloved cuisine that keeps multigenerational families returning year after year.

And when you rent a vacation home from Villas by Linda Smith, your family can enjoy the privacy, space and flexibility that you need to experience the full range of Jamaica's delights. With your own fully stocked kitchen, dining room, private pool and outdoor living areas, the entire family can spread out in comfort – and at a price comparable (and often less) per person than a hotel suite.

Most Jamaica villas also come fully staffed with a chef, butler, housekeeper and personal laundress who anticipate and fulfill every need – a priceless luxury for otherwise busy moms and dads. In-villa chefs are happy to prepare individual meals for children and serve them at times parents suggest, and nannies are always available for hire, so adults can spend an evening (or several!) out on the town without kids in tow.

Many homes in the Villas by Linda Smith collection are especially well suited for families with amenities like outdoor play areas and adjoining bedrooms. One particularly family-friendly villa rental is five-bedroom Noble House on the Beach, a seaside gem with a soft lawn, silky beach and shallow entrance to the sea. Located just 100 yards offshore is Holden's Reef, a spectacular snorkeling spot that can be easily reached via the villa's included kayaks. Noble House can also be combined with neighboring Serenity and Tranquillity to create a fifteen-bedroom compound, ideal for family reunions.

Viviana at the Tryall Club, a six-bedroom rental on six private acres, is another family favorite for its privacy, amenities and staff. Viviana offers a heated pool with a shallow end for toddlers, a private gym, a game room and membership to the Tryall Club, which grants access to tennis courts, water sports, beach parties and the complimentary Hummingbird Kids Club. Once a week, the Viviana staff organizes Jamaica Day, a celebration with Jamaican food and entertainment that culminates with a torch-lit party on the lawn.

No matter which vacation home you choose, your time in Jamaica is sure to produce cherished family memories, from the meandering conversations over dinner on the terrace to the hours spent splashing in the sea.
