Our rustic 1 acre property is in a gated community near Whitehouse, Westmoreland on the south coast - 80 minutes from the Montego Bay airport. The Garden Suite contains a sleeping area with double bed, full bathroom, eat-in kitchenette and verandah overlooking the pool.


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's place was a wonderful escape from the everyday. If you are a for "Turn Down service" or "the resort experience", Jim's Place may not be for you. But if you want to see the real Jamaica and don't mind communing with nature a little bit, Jim's Place is a must. From the awesome architecture to the way the rain flows around the house and into the Bird Baths on the porch, not to mention the "rain off the roof shower". Jim's Place is an experience in itself. Hepburn is the most helpful caretaker who lives onsite, he helped us navigate into town and get groceries and necessities for our stay at the house. Terrance was a local driver recommended by Jim for local trips and excursions around the island. We hired him for a ride to Negril and to see the " Blue Hole Mineral Spa". What great trips, Terrance is a good driver and knows his way around as well as the locations and information about the areas you pass through. The View is definitely the million dollar view that was advertised and the pool was a nice oasis from the heat of the day. Bugs were definitely around but not too much of an issue if you used the mosquito netting and bug spray or bug bracelet for sleeping. Hepburn took me to the beach one morning and we bought 4 lobsters from a fisherman for a great price. Navalee came out and prepared them for us with curried chicken, mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, and plantains. What an awesome meal. We regret not having her come over more often... We also liked Blue Waters restaurant that was just down the road. They had great food, cold Red Stripe and a great view. Give Jim's place a try you will love it.

Where to begin? Our first trip to Jamaica was amazing and we owe that to this wonderful Airbnb. Enjoy a cup of Jamaican french press coffee on the private balcony before having Hepburn, the caretaker, take you on a short walk to the private beach. Make sure to end your day on the upstairs veranda with a Red Stripe and the most magnificent views of the sun setting over the Caribbean. Jim was the best host and made this a very stress free trip. He organized the transportation of our travel party to and from the airport. Hepburn was a great host as well, showing us all the best spots in town. Stop by and have a beer with Little at Little Big Tree, or shoot a game of pool with Vicky at Roger's Bar, or just hang out at Jim's Place, you won't be disappointed. Already planning our next trip back!

Jim's place was perfect. Very spacious, clean, easy to get to with his directions, close to walk but far enough away from the town center where it was peaceful and quiet. Shower is perfect and has hot water. Great views. His mate Hepburn who lives at the front of the property was very nice and helpful. The cat was a cute meow box who would gladly accept some petting. Central to some very nice beaches and communities. Great base for longer trips if you need to drive. Ample parking for your rental car. I would stay again..!!

Even though Jim wasn't there, Hepburn the caretaker was more than helpful and provided great advice on anything. He showed us how to get around town and to the beach! I enjoyed his company and felt safe knowing he was around. Walking to the farmer's/fish market was a great way to interact with the friendly locals. The community is definitely a place I'd live at. The stay was very enjoyable and comfortable. I had everything I needed here. One can feel the love here at Jim's place. I certainly experienced a enlightening and peaceful vibe. A great way to end the year!

This place was a great experience. I loved the pool, the view, the structure of the house... just serenity. Thanks to Oni too, as he was very helpful. I will recommend this place to anyone I know planning to travel to Jamaica and are looking for a non tourist experience. The community was great as I am reinforced to say #supportlocaljamaica Kim Andrade

Het was echt een geweldige plek. Het huis wat Jim zelf heeft gebouwd is voorzien van alle comfort. Alles is zo mooi in verhouding gebouwd qua kleur, stijl en materiaal dat het rust, luxe en sereniteit uitstraalt waar je ook maar gaat zitten, liggen of zwemmen. Je kan er heel goed een boek lezen, maar bijvoorbeeld ook schrijven of een beetje werken. Prachtige strandjes zijn in de omgeving te vinden, lekker eten aan het strand of relaxen in een bar op palen in de zee. En boodschappen doe je om de hoek. Zowel in supermarkt als op de marktkramen eromheen. Wij hadden een huurauto, wat echt ideaal is. Maar voor wandelaars is alles binnen loopafstand te vinden. Je kan gewoon alleen maar genieten hier. En als je iets niet weet dan is er 24/7 een hele lieve man aanwezig in een huisje aan de strand. Hij past dag en nacht op het huis en de tuin en zorgt als je wilt ook voor jullie.

Lucette wrote about "Jim's Place~Jamaica" [translated by (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)] It was really a great place. The house that you built yourself is equipped with every comfort. Everything is so beautiful compared built in color, style and material that peace, luxury and serenity emanates wherever you sit, lie or swim. You can very well read a book, but also a letter or a little work. Beautiful beaches can be found in the area, good food on the beach or relaxing in a bar on stilts in the sea. And do errands around the corner. Both in supermarkets and at around the market stalls. We had a rental car, which is really ideal. But walkers can find everything within walking distance. You can simply enjoy here. And if you do not know something then there 24/7 a very sweet man present in a house at the beach. It fits day and night on the house and the garden and creates as you want for you too. She and Herbert were wonderful guests!
