Welcome to "Jim's Place". Our beautiful one acre property is nestled 240 feet above sea level on a hillside in a gated community on the south west coast of Jamaica - 80 minutes from the Montego Bay airport. Our Garden Suite contains a sleeping area with double bed, ceiling fan, full bathroom, eat-in kitchenette and a private verandah with a staircase leading down to the pool and poolside cabana.
This owner/architect designed home is unique and rustic in nature; evocative of traditional great houses. Sea breezes provide natural air conditioning through the louvered windows and doors. The Garden Suite is a few steps above the pool deck and gardens. Mango, moringa, frangipani, bougainvillea, poinciana, ginger and other tropical trees and plants fill the grounds. Our garden attracts many bird species, from parrotlets & hummingbirds to egrets, song birds and mourning doves. A bird sanctuary is just 5 miles to the east.
The view from the Master Suite's upper veranda (shared) is a 180 degree horizon view of the breathtaking Caribbean Sea where each evening you can watch as the sun splashes into the ocean igniting the sky.

Jim, the owner will not always be on the island, as he travels between Canada and Jamaica. However, there will always be at least one staff member present during your stay to assist you with any needs you might have regarding, shopping, banking, touring etc. Our friendly, resident caretaker ["Oney"] is always happy to do your daily food shopping or accompany you on informative walking tours of the local district. He can also arrange for private taxis for day trips further afield.

The Canadian owners are artists/designers and welcome others in the arts field to come and share their talents and experiences. We like to think of our place as an Artists' Retreat.
Our 1 acre property is in a residential neighbourhood. The general area is essentially rural in nature. We respect our neighbours' right to "quite enjoyment" as in any community. Our home is for registered guests only, although we do encourage folks to get out and about, explore the district and meet the friendly local people.
I am a semi-retired designer/artist with a 45 year career in architecture, stage, film and television design. Designing and building "Jim's Place" in Jamaica was a labour of love... beginning in 1998 with an empty 1 acre hillside lot, 240 feet above sea level and a dream of creating an artists' retreat. We began hosting non-family guests in early 2014 and have enjoyed sharing our home away with folks from many countries. We can't be there as often as we like and are lucky to have found a special person [Hepburn] to act as host on our behalf.
