This was our second stay at Jim's Place. Not only has the villa improved in way of amenities and comfort, we were delighted to visit during a time where the trees on the yard were offering us a multitude of delicious local fruit on a daily basis! The caretaker made sure all of our needs were met and we got to enjoy a few evenings in his company cooking local dishes and listening to music. As per usual, walking around the town, we felt welcomed by the locals and got to discover the fish market, the local bars and the friendly people. Be it for a relaxing private get away or an activity-filled vacation, Jim's Place is THE place to feel relaxed, safe and comfortable. Can't wait til our next visit! :)

We do encourage all of our guests to explore the local community and these folks took full advantage of that. We are "off the beaten tourist track" and this shows in the friendly reception our guests receive from "the locals". Apart from this feature, we are quite central for "day trips" to some of the hot spots along the south coast and have stand-by drivers who know the area well from Negril to Treasure Beach. Welcome back!

I picked this place because of the artistry. Because I love to feel at home wherever I travel, I dislike boring architecture and decor, and need to stay in a place that feels beautiful and loved. Jim's Place did not disappoint, and in fact was our favorite accommodation in Jamaica. Warm tiles, elegant design, calm colors, and just enough touches of detail and artistry to make it feel really unique and special. Jim is a friendly and helpful character, and Hepburn, the caretaker is kind and sweet, he roasted our bread fruit on a fire for us, as we didn't know how to cook it. The bugs were free to come and go with the open air design, but they didn't really bother us. I was expecting masses of mosquitoes, but that was not the case. It is not a luxury place, but if you love beauty and nature you will love it here. Hot water for showers was fantastic.

This guest and her 2 travelling partners were wonderful to host. I wished they had more time on their journey to spend with us, but they needed to explore the island in a short time. They did pack a lot into the 2 days and we arranged a special boat tour up the Black River AFTER they normally closed up. The addition of the ceiling fan [suggested by an earlier guest] gave them "the best sleep on the island so far." It can only get better as we learn the art of hosting in paradise. I would welcome them back!

“Fantastic view”

Jim and Oney have created a wonderful rental space that offers a tremendous view of the sea, and privacy beyond compare. The garden apartment which we rented was comfortable but as we've mentioned to Jim, could use some small amenities, such as an overhead fan above the bed, and hooks for hanging clothes and other items. The apartment offers a small but adequate kitchen, and access to a second kitchen on the first floor adjacent to the pool. The grounds were well kept and since the top floor apartment was not occupied, access to the upper balcony was a real treat. The view from the top floor is incomparable and breathtaking. If you enjoy privacy this is your place. Oney was very helpful and always available to run errands or do some shopping in Whitehouse. For those that require hotel type comfort, this may not be to your liking, but for the seasoned traveler this property is very dear.

If you do consider this property, be sure to bring bug repellent as the no-seeums and mosquitoes can be a challenge. We made numerous walks into Whitehouse and up the beach toward the Sandals resorts. We enjoyed these adventures, more so because the locals are very friendly without the typical sales pitches that are more common in areas such as Negril where we have vacationed in the past. Access to local taxis to places like Black River, YS Falls, and other points of interest are very affordable and easily acquired in Whitehouse. Oney can also arrange for a private driver if one desires.

This is a wonderful get away and as mentioned an incredibly private and romantic spot.
