About Sam McChesney
My wife and I live with our 3 dogs, 4 horses on a ranch located between Lawrence and Kansas City, Kansas. We have three grown children and 4 grandchildren and are currently semi-retired. We spend our time with our family and enjoying activities like horseback riding, golfing, and traveling. We like to spend as much time as possible at our second home in Montserrat, Camelot by the Sea.
Sam McChesney purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Sam McChesney chose Olveston
My parents retired to Monsterrat in the 60's and we fell in love with the island. Now, with my wife of 45 years, who was with me as my fiance the first time I ever visited Montserrat, built our dream home that we split our time between. We are both originally from Cleveland Ohio, but have spend the last 40+ years just outside Kansas City, on the Kansas side. After spending my career in real estate, we now run and live on a 80 acre horse ranch, called the Painted M Ranch in Olathe, Kansas. We take great pride in our Camelot by the Sea and keep it in the best condition by having a full time professional staff manage the property while we are not there. If there is anything we can provide you with to make your stay more enjoyable please don't hesitate to ask. Montserrat is the hidden gem of the Caribbean and we look forward to helping you discover all the secrets and beauty if holds.
What makes this Villa unique
Camelot by the Sea is one of the most prominent properties on the island of Montserrat. It has been featured on an official government postage stamp and included in many of their travel and promotional literature. We chose this property due to its proximity to the beach, majestic ocean views, privacy, and unique indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

Camelot was a lovely stay and the property manager was great assisting with our concerns from beginning to end. We are looking forward our stay again. The villa accommodated our family and we are all happy with the place.
Vicki and I are happy you loved your stay. We look forward to seeing you and your family again.
This property was heavenly! Such a perfect place for a getaway. Very grateful to have been able to go there.
Thanks for your kind comments. You make renting our Villa very satisfying..
Hope to see you soon.
We arrived in the evening and Ruthann was there to greet us and show us around the property and made sure to let us know if we had any questions to give her a call. There is a information book that details how to operate and troubleshoot various equipment and also included places to eat, visit and taxi service which was very helpful. Ruthann was able to arrange for her friend Ann to prepare breakfast for my group (which included 2 other villas) and came along with her to deliver it which was very nice of her to do. Camelot by the Sea is a amazing property and what you see in the photographs is what you get and more. In the Ocean Bedroom you can hear the waves braking throughout the night which was very relaxing. The villa was clean, the kitchen had all the supplies needed to prepare our meals. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were stocked with the basic toiletries, all the rooms had emergency probable lights in case there was a power outage. The landscaping and property design is perfect. In the evenings you witnessed the most magnificent sunsets. Everyone enjoyed their stay at Camelot.
The TV in the theater room was not working and we were not able to get live television, Dwain was very receptive and called for service but things happen at a different pace in the islands-however those minor issues would not prevent me from returning to Camelot. Camelot is highly recommended, you will not be disappointed.
Spectacular villa on Montserrat
After more than 3 weeks at this wonderful villa it was difficult to leave!
My family of 4 (2 adults, 6 year old, 3 year old) plus nanny found Camelot to be well-equipped, spacious and nicely maintained.
The 4th bedroom is a suite with its own balcony on the lower level and has a mini fridge which worked well for our nanny.
The views are incredible as is Woodlands Beach which is 136 (steep) steps down from the villa but there is a handrail to help.
The pool is huge and my children spent hours splashing around and playing on the floating foam mattresses.
All the bedrooms have en suite baths and there is also a powder room by the main indoor space.
The on-island property manager Dwain was very helpful recommending tours and restaurants and was easily reached for our only issue when the gas BBQ needed to have a tank switched which was done quickly.
We had a fabulous vacation and would highly recommend Camelot by the Sea!
Thank you for your thoughtful comments. We much enjoyed having you as guests. We do hope to have you as guests in the future. Our best to you and your family.

Amazing property,everyone we met was so friendly and helpful. The house is wonderful pictures do not do it justice! Dwain was great! I am already planning our next trip back!
Tina and Jim,
Thanks for you very kind review. Our regard for you and your stay at Camelot by the Sea equals yours for us. We would very happily look forward to your return. I agree with your opinion of Dwain. We are very fortunate to have him. Dwain was very pleased with the few Caribs and half a bottle of Captain Morgan Private Reserve rum you left behind. I have not rated your stay, but I plan to give you a 5 star review. Take care and look forward to seeing you again.
The villa is amazing ! And the Island too ! Already planing our next stay at Camelot by the sea!
Thankyou for the great review. We look forward to your next visit.
