Owners Comments


We love our home in Jamaica and visit often. It’s really lovely to be able to share it with our family, friends and guests. We’ve lived in London for over 40 years but now we spend 3 – 4 months each year enjoying our beautiful Island.

After enjoying 3 family vacations in Mammee Bay Estate, we finally bought our Jamaica home from the family of Byron Lee, one of Jamaica’s premier music pioneers. Byron Lee and his group the Dragonaires brought Caribbean music to the attention of the world.

We feel lucky to have our villa in Jamaica and it's in such a great area.  We've loved renovating the 50's interior into a modern and comfortable space, while keeping the character. It’s a real treat to sit under the Lignum Vitae tree with a nice glass of wine at the end of the day.
