Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: I am a Canadian living in Jamaica in a separate house on the Greatview property. I am there to manage the villa and its staff of 10 to ensure that guests needs are attended to and their expectations of Greatview continually exceeded. My personal collection of antiques and vintage collectables are throughout the villa. I ensure that the amenities are always fresh and new and that guests are delighted by the variety of different table settings, dishes, placemates and napkins and Greatview's famous salt and pepper collection. Read excerpts of the book Greatview Jamaica - Following a Dream and Arriving Somewhere Else - on the home page of Greatview's website. www.greatviewjamaica.com

Why Saint James Parish, Jamaica:
Having vacationed in this community overlooking Half Moon Bay, I knew this was an area I wanted to return to and to bring my family to for extended family vacations. The views are breathtaking, the villa I personally built is the ultimate in luxury and the staff I have trained can compete with the best anywhere in the world. The gardens are maintained by 3 gardeners and are spectacular - extending into the house with potted plants and trees and orchids everywhere. See www.greatviewjamaica.com

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
10 staff serve guests including a chef trained in international cuisine, 2 butlers providing 24 hour service including concierge service, 2 housekeepers and laundress, driver and gardeners. There are large common spaces for group gatherings but also private patios and nooks to 'getaway'. Greatview boasts a games room with arcade games, pool table and foosball table, a private air conditioned gym, treehouse for kids, infinity pool with waterfall into lower pool and hot tub. A wealth of adventures are at hand: golfing, snorkling, scuba-diving, beaches, the night life of Montego Bay, tennis, fishing, sailing, waterfall climbing, hiking, horseback riding, shopping, and visiting historic sites.
