Why Pamela Johnson chose Saint Ann Parish

Stone Harbour is a property on Old Fort Bay, the beach where we raised our children on summer, spring, and winter vacations. Knowing we wanted our grandchildren to experience the colors, sea, music, food, and magic that is uniquely Jamaica, we decided to buy this property and renovate. The renovations and designs are an on-going labor-of-love, as each year the gardens become more spectacular and the amenities more comfortable.

What makes this villa unique

I have never known any guest to come to Stone Harbour and not experience a wonderful change for the better, whether they bring paints and cameras for artistic work, using Jamaica's remarkable colors, or come with family to swim, eat, play games and share memorable time, each guest has always left with the dream to return. Our remarkable staff will pamper, answer questions about island life, and ensure that your holiday is special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Best Villa in Old Fort!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I went on a girls trip and the pictures do not lie, well maybe they do because once you get there the view is even more amazing! The house was clean and beautiful, didn't have to want for anything. Tony was a great host and great host his service will forever be remembered. Ms. Delma put all her heart in whatever she prepared to cook for us! The food was awesome, perfect! Wanted to take her home with me! Beryl puts love in cleaning up your rooms and made sure we had plenty of towels, last but not least Second taught us everything we needed to know about the island from the coconuts to the fruits on the trees, and everything that was on the beautiful island. We had an amazing time and we will definitely be back!!!

Best week ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned last night from our stay at Stone Harbour Villa. Wow ... what an amazing experience. I read the previous reviews before reserving the home, and I have to agree with everyone else. The place is wonderful and the service is amazing. I can't say enough about the staff. They took care of us, fed us, pampered us. We could not have asked for more. The owner suggested that we hire a driver for the week and I am glad we did ... I definitely recommend this. He was great and gave us useful information about places to visit and things to do. We hiked Dunn's River falls, swam at Blue Hole (our favorite), swam with dolphins, did the Bobsled ride at Mystic Mountain. All of the activities were amazing!! We did not want to come home and are looking forward to visiting again. Thanks again Pam, Delma, Tony, Keisha, and Second. It was a week to remember!!!

Doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

Two families traveled to Stone Harbour for a full week. We had four adults, two 18 year old boys, one 15 year old boy, one 15 year old girl and a 9 year old boy. As a mother of two teen-age boys, I haven't felt so well cared for in decades. I have never had a vacation that I felt so incredibly rejuvenated!

THE STAFF

The staff was simply amazing. They are the ones that made the trip so perfect! Tony, the butler, thought of things before we did - heating up the jacuzzi at the end of the day, drinks in a cooler by the pool, and so on. Delma, the chef, made us the best home cooked meals we could imagine. She put all her love into every dish. Keisha and Beryl, the maids, kept every bit of the house beyond spic and span, they lovingly did our laundry and put water in our room each night. The gardener, "Second", kept immaculate care of the grounds, took us on a beach hike and kept the kids busy with kites on windy days.

THE HOUSE

The house itself was in great condition. Everything was clean and well cared for. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of places to lounge, play games and hang out. We all loved the pool and the jacuzzi. We used the beach every day. All of us loved boogie boarding and going for walks. "Second" showed us the best spot to snorkel where the water was calm and the corals hid hundreds of fish. My son even caught a lobster (that Delma cooked up for him).

OUTINGS

We went on several outings while we were there and used a local driver (Michael) who was also wonderful. We went ATVing up the mountain, we went to the blue hole (a big favorite), we went to the Green Grotto and to the Dunns River Falls. All were not too long of a drive and everyone in our party was able to do these activities.

MEALS

We chose to eat all our meals at Stone Harbour. I can't imagine a better place to eat. Delma makes all authentic Jamacian foods. She was a great meal planner spacing out our choices and giving us great recommendations. Lunch was always casual by the pool. I loved that she often served leftovers as well as sandwiches for lunch. It was a thoughtful use of the food purchased. My personal favorite was the Jamaican breakfast. Ackee and saltfish for breakfast is my new obsession.

THANKS!

Many thanks to Pamela for sharing her home with us. Our 18 year olds leave for college soon and Stone Harbour served as the perfect backdrop for lots of family time. We will remember this vacation for a lifetime!

Anyone looking for an incredible retreat this home offers it all. All the feeling of an all inclusive but with the privacy and peacefulness of home.
