Jim's Place - Jamaica - south west coast.
Jim's Place is on a hillside acre in a gated community on the beautiful south west coast of Jamaica. We have been here for 15 years, but just now  are making our place available to guests beyond friends and family. Our studio apartment is private and self-contained, with a sleeping area [double], an equipped kitchenette with dining booth, full bathroom and private veranda with a staircase that leads you to the pool and poolside cabana. The unit, on its own level, is nestled within a larger 3 storey villa home occupied by the Canadian owner. Although it could be described as "rustic" [no AC - the house is designed to catch the breezes] it is comfortable and includes WiFi, daily housekeeping service and much advice as to the many local amenities. The South coast of Jamaica is known for its laid-back, relatively undeveloped nature... an ideal place for rest and relaxation away from the bustle of tourist filled "all-inclusive" resort life. The village of Whitehouse is 1 mile to the east - a market town known across the region for its fish market as well as the local farmers' market for fresh produce. Our staff will be happy to guide you or do your daily shopping, you can even wake before the sun and meet the fishermen on the beach as they bring in their fresh catches from the night before. There are also many options for day trips to attractions, both local and further afield, and licenced tour drivers are always available. Or you can just sit back and relax - enjoy the amazing view and the soft breeze off the sea. The "Moon Guide" [a British travel publication] said that we enjoy "the best sunsets to be had in Jamaica". And that's the truth. Each night you'll watch as the sun drops into the Caribbean, splashing the sky with it's radiance. There are private [part of our community] and public beaches a 10 minute walk down the hill where you'll discover a truly wonderful way to spend the day, searching for seashells and swimming in the warm ocean surf, but know that we are 240 feet above sea level; so after the walk 'home', you will likely need a refreshing dip in the beautiful horizon pool overlooking our lush gardens and a cold Red Stripe.TripAdvisor property ID 3028233...Read more

Additional Location Information
We are located in a gated community on the south west coast of Jamaica near Whitehouse, Westmoreland. Our 1 acre hillside garden property is about 240 feet above sea level which affords an amazing view of the the sea looking south west and soft breezes which keep the house cool. We have access to 2 private beaches [attached to the community] as well as public beaches used by locals and fishermen. Whitehouse, 1 mile east, is our local market town, with well stocked supermarkets, post office, banks and ATMs as well as a large farmers' market for fresh produce and fish direct from the sea - weather permitting. There are also several restaurants - the new Blue Waters Restaurant and Lounge being a favourite, seaside experience.
Day trips can be arranged with our licenced driver to the many attractions along the south coast, from Negril to the west to Treasure Beach to the east and parts in between. YS Falls is a popular spot as are boat tours on the Black River [Jamaica's longest at 40 miles] where you'll see aligators and hundreds of tropical birds.
If an "all-inclusive" experience is on your wish list, day [or evening] passes can be arranged at Sandals Whitehouse European Spa, located 1 mile to the west - or you can just lounge on your own verandah [at home] and lazily view their beach and watercraft [sailboats large and small, glass bottom and SCUBA dive boat].
We can arrange Montego Bay airport pick-ups with our regular driver at reasonable rates for the 80 minute trip across the island [recommended], or provide you with complete directions and alternate travel options.
