Holiday Rental House
The Retreat Plantation House, 7 miles (11Km) from NEGRIL, JAMAICA This classic West Indian plantation house was built in 1921 for the father of the present owner. Recently restored and furnished to its former level as the manager's residence on a still-working sugar cane property, this house holds remarkable echoes of plantation life in the last century. The interior with sections of natural (unpainted) wood contrast with freshly painted walls, giving a modern look to the high-ceilinged bedrooms, with an overall emphasis on simplicity. Visitors to the Plantation House will live like the owners did, and wake to the sounds of life in the Jamaican countryside. The dawn sky is often painted in bright colours; sunsets are equally spectacular. Guests may rent a car—or not, as they choose...The Retreat Plantation House, 7 miles (11Km) from NEGRIL, JAMAICA This classic West Indian plantation house was built in 1921 for the father of the present owner.

Guests may rent a car—or not, as they choose, for there is a frequent taxi service in both directions, to Negril, for the beaches and supermarkets, and to Savanna La Mar for the fruit & vegetable market.
