About Eleanor Harper

I was born in St. Andrew Jamaica, but currently living in Palm Beach, Florida. I migrated to the States when I just out of high school (St. Andrews High School for Girls) at 15. Lived in Florida where i lived in Broward County for close to 20 years. I attended Florida Atlantic University and University of Miami. Although my job allows me to travel, my best trip was done in 2007 when I visited several cities in Europe with my three children. My husband enjoys cruising, so I have done most of the Eastern and Western Caribbean.

I was first attracted to location in St. Thomas Jamaica due to the proximity to the sea and I enjoy the peace and calm in the area. Its a great place to meditate and relax.

Eleanor Harper purchased this house in 2009

Why Eleanor Harper chose Jamaica

East Prospect is considered an undiscovered jewel. You will enjoy renting this modest home vs. staying at a hotel or resort. It is very private and relaxing. The area is wonderfully quiet and peaceful. The beach is mere steps away. We can arrange car transportation to and from the airport, along with grocery shopping and tours of the island. If you don’t want to cook, you can take advantage of fresh fish and lobster and local Jamaican cuisine all done to perfection.

What makes this house unique

We do offer discounts if you are a tight budget. Please send me a note on want you can afford to pay. We can offer a la carte pricing which depends on the amenities you chose to pay for.

Jamaika, Haus am Meer

  • 3 of 5

Im Februar 2017 hatten wir das Haus in der Nähe von Morant Bay direkt am Meer für unseren

Urlaub gebucht.Abseits vom Touristenrummel verbrachten wir 4 wunderschöne Wochen

wie im Paradies.Eine leichte Brise machte die Hitze erträglich und das Tosen der Wellen

wiegte uns in den Schlaf.Wir hatten die Möglichkeit das Leben der Jamaikaner kennenzu-

lernen und konnten die urwüchsige Natur bewundern.

Henry unser Ansprechpartner kümmerte sich liebevoll um uns.Tag und Nacht stand er uns zur Verfügung und wir hatten gemeinsam viel Spaß.

Das Haus ist sauber und modern eingerichtet.Ein riesengroßer Kühlschrank und ein toller

Gasherd halfen uns bei der Verpflegung.Einkaufsmöglichkeiten befinden sich in Morant Bay

und in den Restaurants kann man Chicken und Fisch bekommen.

Wir können dieses Haus jederzeit weiter empfehlen .

Owner's Response: Ralf and Gabby was a pleasure to host. They left the house intact. Henry really had fun taking them to the local hangout spots. The community welcomed this loving couple. We hope to see you in the near future. Eleanor

Nice location

  • 5 of 5

Location on a peninsula. You could watch the sunset over the water. It had good security. The house was clean and well supplied with essentials for cooking. The property manager Henry was very helpful. Morant Bay was our close shopping area and banking. We bought fresh fish and lobster from the fishermen. We went to Bath, hot springs. Next time I would go and sit in the hot spring water in the spa, if you go upstream with lots of people offering to help you, beware that you know how much they are going to charge you for their massage before you arrive up stream. We enjoyed our stay and would like to stay here again on my next return to Jamaica.

Thank you.

Laila, Gustav and Johan. Canada

Owner's Response: I heard you and your sons were perfect guests from Henry. I feel in love with the location and I am glad that you enjoyed the house. We hope on your next visit to island, we should have the completed the second level of house. The ocean views will be spectacular. I enjoy going to the mineral baths as well and enjoyed the massages. Next time, let us know when you plan on going, I can ask Henry to guide/refer you to someone that is known to provide good service. Allison

The perfect winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to enjoy the sun, sea & warmth, this is likely the place you are looking for. My wife & I spent January at this property. With the Caribbean Sea in the back yard and the warm Jamaican sun shining almost every day, we had a prefect January get away. The house is perfectly located to enjoy the sea, but also enjoy peaceful quiet and privacy. The home is very comfortable, spacious and located in a great neighborhood. It is a great place to make some Jamaican friendships that may last the rest of your life. If you are looking for a chance to get to know some of the people of Jamaica, watch and enjoy the ocean from your backyard, have the beach nearby and enjoy sunshine almost everyday, I would highly recommend you consider this property. I believe it is the best value in all of Jamaica!

We hope you will come to visit and become a frequent traveler to Jamaica, especially what I consider the undiscovered gem in the area of East Prospect. This is for those who don't want to be stuck in the rut of all inclusive resort living. You will be able to venture out and connect or get engrossed in Jamaica's culture. If you have the yearning to learn or experience the REAL Jamaica culture, please consider spending time in East Prospect and the surrounding areas with all it has to offer from the beaches, natural beauty and good food. ANYONE that is thinking of visiting or going for an extendication (extended vacation) as I call it will find the house cozy and affordable.
