About Tom and Eloise Collins

I am from Jamaica, and my husband is from from New York; we have our permanent home in the United States. We have been married for thirteen wonderful years, with three children.

Tom and Eloise Collins purchased this chateau / country house in 2009

Why Tom and Eloise Collins chose Jamaica

I was born and raised on this same property, but I left there at the age of sixteen. As soon as my husband went to Jamaica and saw the beauty of the place, he immediately fell in love with it. My father died in 2006 and shortly after he died, my husband and my brother started to build this dream house.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

peace and tranquility is hard to come by nowadays, but this place will allow you to rest, read, relax, with absolutely nothing else to do..

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Andrew..

I am elated to know that you enjoyed your stay at our place. I hope the next time that you visit the road and internet service will be a lot better because the government promised us.. Unfortunately, we are at their mercy for those amenities..

This really is a beautiful and well equipped house. The top and first floor balconies look out over the tree-tops into a lushly vegetated valley, one end of which ends at the Caribbean Sea. With a little patience you will see humming birds, parrots, parakeets, turkey vultures (called John Crows locally) and many more species. all from the balcony. The perfect place to drink your morning coffee. There are mangoes (just out of arms reach) and a breadfruit tree beside the house along with fruit trees I've never heard of before. Every bedroom had a full bathroom en suite and an extra bathroom on the first floor in the living area. We (2 Adults and 3 teenage boys)had the place to ourselves as a holiday let but I understand from the owner it could be used as a bed and breakfast. A decent internet access was provided. The house keeper lives on site in a separate building and was always helpful but never intrusive. This would suit very well either two couples or a family of six or less. There is air-con fitted although we never used it. The house is sat beside a quite road and is about 20 minutes from the main coast road and another 10 minutes to a usable small beach for swimming or sunbathing, the locals call it the Steamer beach as the remains of a shipwreck are still visible. There are a few other beaches but if you are looking for a fully "manicured" one then its probably best going to somewhere like Negril. The road up to the house is a little potholed in places but still drivable, I'm told it will be repaired soon. For eating out then Lucea is the nearest place we used, we used Lucea for shopping also. If you wanted something a little more upmarket then probably better to look for something nearer Montego Bay. If you want a break away from tourist hot spots then this will definitely be worth considering. The owners are very amenable (they let us change our dates quite late with no charge whatsoever). The whole family fully recommends it.
