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.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Prospect, Lyssons, 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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
