Now Highland House serves as an important base for OLLF's Learning Center. Truly a family project, Keressa Page, Brenda's daughter manages the villa.

                      Why the Owner Chose Montego Bay:
                      This home was purchased when the owner fell in love with the property and it's history. We live in Atlanta and can visit easily with a quick 2 hour flight. It is spacious enough for our large family and to rent to groups. The property took our breath away and we instantly fell in love.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      When you stay at Highland House you are completely secluded on 17 acres, but have easy access to Montego Bay (just 20 min drive)and full use of our Beach membership at Seawinds Beach Resort(just 5 min drive). Our home has an organic garden with loads of fresh produce used for meals.
