Hi, I'm Karen!

I was born in the early sixties and was bit by the travel bug at an early age. I started with western Canada at 17 years old and lived in Jasper Alta for the next five years doing extensive travelling to Europe and Mexico. My father passed away when I was 22 and I was to receive a small inheritance. With that in mind I travelled to a few Caribbean islands and soon fell in love with Jamaica. That was back in 1986 and as they say the rest is history!! The following year I moved to Jamaica by myself at the ripe old age of 23.. My first business there was a restaurant where I met my future husband, the chef! his cooking won me over right from the get go!! Within a year i had found a small piece of property that was both close to town and within my budget. I purchased it in 1987 and have been building on it ever since.

Here is my property:

This villa is perfectly situated in a neighborhood in the heart of Negril--making both the beach and the cliffs easily accessible. There are lots of stores (markets, ice cream shop, bakery) within walking distance. And you don't feel like going out yourself Desiroi (the chef) is always willing to accommodate. The villa itself is very nice, albeit undergoing renovations while 2 new private units are being added upstairs. The only complaint we had was with the quality (read sturdiness) of the poolside umbrellas. The private pool is one of the best features of the villa. We would wake up a around 7am and lounge poolside until 10 or 11 when it was time to grab a bite to eat. Speaking of which, the villa comes with a chef who is a GREAT cook and an even greater person. He easily saved us hundreds of dollars on meals during the 8 days my boyfriend and I were there. We would give him $10-20 US in the morning and he would serve us dinner at about 7-8pm each evening on the pool deck. Dinner just happened to be our preference but he will cook you breakfast, lunch and dinner if you so desire. Also, Sophia (the housekeeper) is AMAZiING. She is very sweet, knows how to allow you to maintain your privacy, and is a font of knowledge about where to go and how to get there while in Negril. Karen is very lucky to have her. Overall, we would definitely come back and, in fact, are planning to do so in the near future.
