Year Purchased: 1988
About the owner: I was born in Canada in the early 60's outside of Toronto. I attended high school in Brampton, Ontario and was bit by the travel bug at an early age. At 17, fresh out of school my girlfriend and I started out on a venture to western Canada, hitchhiking across the country (I didn't exactly tell my father about the hitchhiking part!) I spent the next five years working three jobs and then traveling at every opportunity that came my way, being fortunate enough to spend nine months wandering around Europe, Greece, Israel and Turkey. The following year I went to Mexico twice and then my father passed away shortly thereafter. The first trip I took after his death was intended to heal my soul from his passing and I decided on going to Jamaica. As they say 'the rest is history' I fell in love with the island back in 1986 when I first landed there. The pulse of the island grabbed from the moment I landed. The rich historic culture, the gorgeous scenery, the succulent food, the Reggae music playing everywhere, I loved it all. The following year I was to receive a small inheritance from my fathers death. I was young (22) single and motivated to live in the tropics! I made it official and moved to Jamaica by myself!! My first business there was a restaurant where I met my future husband. We have two adult children aged 26 and 23 now, however my husband passed away nine years ago. We as a family are trying to continue to build on this business and make him proud of us!! We have come a really long way!
Why the Owner Chose Negril:
After moving to Jamaica and opening a restaurant there I realized I would need a permanent living solution as I was renting for the first several months after I arrived. I began a search for a piece of property. I travelled the island extensively and found myself drawn back to Negril time and again. I didnt want to be in the city of Montego Bay nor did I like the grainy beaches of Ocho Rios. The seven mile stretch of white sand beach in Negril and the undeveloped small town feel is where I decided I would purchase land. Through my friend and former business partner I found a piece of land for sale that fit all my criteria. It was undeveloped, close proximity to the beach and town centre and best of all it was in my budget! I loved the historic rock formations on the property and saw some huge potential for development. This was 1988 and Negril was still virtually undeveloped back then but it was inevitable to me that the sleepy little town of Negril would become a larger tourist destination on the island one day, how could it not? The only spot on the island to have a seven mile stretch of pristine white sand beach! I was sold and bought the land in March of 1988, first moving a small prefab home onto the grounds, and so we began. My husband planted every one of the beautiful fruit trees which now adorn the property. It has taken many years to reach the point we are at now, as I mentioned the property was virtually undeveloped, with nothing on it. It has been a long arduous process that was both frustrating and rewarding at the same time We now have a 6 bedroom villa and a goreous pool that were bulit through years of hard work, and something I am extremely proud of accomplishing.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
