Experience Real Jamaica. Quietly nestled in the hills above the West End, High Life Villa offers a private escape from life. The moment you enter the property through the lush Coconut grove and ascend the mountain through the towering palms flanking the driveway your senses will be flooded with the beauty of the Jamaican countryside. Upon arrival at High Life you will be greeted by the staff and given a tour of the 4 bedroom 4.5 bath Villa. The main house offers kitchen, dining, and living rooms, as well as the master wing and one guest suite each having private on suite baths. The connected guest house offers a bar area, sitting library with a collection of great works of literature, one guestroom, one separate bathroom, and one guest suite with on suite bath.
Situated on 30 private acres, this retreat is yours to enjoy and explore. The caretaker, Daniel, will guide you on the property to see the 15+ varieties of fruit trees, escort you though the community garden to view the produce growing from the fertile Jamaican soil and observe the farming techniques used by the resident farmer, and introduce you to Ginger and Daisy, the coveted Donkeys that graze this paradise. If the aesthetics of this landscape aren’t enough, this lush tropical oasis has fragrant blooms year-round.
Enjoy breathtaking sunsets over the Caribbean by the pool and unforgettable sunrises from the rooftop tanning deck. In the mornings enjoy a book in the thatched Cliffside Cabana as the country side of the West End comes alive; in the evenings unwind looking to the north to see the famous Negril Lighthouse, the western most point on the island. Spend the day relaxing by the 44,000 gallon swimming pool while listening to the tranquil sound of the cascading fountain, or enjoy a day trip to any of the nearby attractions. High Life is situated just minutes from great restaurants, bars & water activities that dot the West End. Whether you desire peace, quiet and relaxation, or an excursion into the town of Negril or another nearby attraction, High Life has it.
Enjoy your meals prepared onsite by private chef Shane Parkinson. Shane wonderfully showcases the bounty grown on property at each meal. Meals are traditional Jamaican fare served family style for you and your family/guests enjoyment. You will experience the national dish of Jamaica, Ackee and salt fish, the famed “breadfruit,” curried chicken, and jerk dishes that rival all others. Plan with Shane to receive Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee service each morning along with a platter of local fruits and toast, a Jamaican breakfast served typically mid-morning, refreshing afternoon fruit smoothies, as well as a traditional Jamaican meal each evening. Meals can be enjoyed in any of the four dining areas of your choosing, dining room, rooftop tanning deck, poolside, or in the Cliffside Cabana. Please let the chef know of dietary restrictions and any food dislikes.

Chris Rix purchased this villa in 1986
High Luxury with a direct connection to Mother Earth. It is a fairy tail setting in the tropics with all the gifts the tropics allow without any headaches of everyday life. We DO NOT have TV or PHONE. We DO have a full staff that will wait on your every need or disappear completely. There is nothing better than sipping your morning coffee out of Silver coffee service and watching the ocean with very distant sounds of the island waking for the day.
All Private to the Villa-
Dreamy Pool with Mermaids tiled in the bottom & a very polite fountain dripping at the deep end.
Prize Mango trees
Beautiful flowering tropical plantings
Non-resort TRUE Jamaican fare prepared for you and to your desired liking at the times you prefer.
We made unforgettable memories at High Life. Shane, Bryan and Susie were fantastic hosts and chris the owner was easy to communicate and finalize trip details with. The prepared meals made by Shane were fantastic of course his famous jerk sauce stands out in our minds most. We loved our experience at high life as 8 ladies from New York we felt safe and so happy.. The one thing I sould suggest is an outdoor shower by the pool... Other than that the property was amazing! Let's not forget about Ginger the donkey and all the cute baby goats !!!! We love High life and Jamaica Mon!!! Would highly recomend this villa for large groups or families looking to bond and have a chill time... Thank you for everything High Life !!
If you want to experience the true character of the Jamaican lifestyle, this is the way to go. This is not the cossetted, distilled, and sanitized version you get at an all-inclusive resort. At High Life you'll get to see and taste all that is true Jamaica, albeit in a luxurious villa, attended by an impeccable staff, who felt like family by the end of our stay! Shane, our chef, made all our meals truly Jamaican....and served up one heck of a 'Miami Vice"! Always smiling Susie was our delightful housekeeper. The drivers, Des and Tito, know all the best spots for shopping, eating, dancing and beaching! Daniel keeps everything running smoothly. We had four couples who never wanted the vacation to end. We will return.
High Life Villa was more than I expected. Chris prepared us for the stay. Shane, the chef, and Bryan, the driver, were like family. Shane prepared great meals for us daily. It was nice to dine on all the tables, especially the rooftop with a view of the ocean. The estate was lovely. We took long walks and enjoyed a tour of all the fruit trees on the estate. I would highly recommend the estate to anyone. Plan to return again and again. Thank you Chris.
We had a wonderful stay at your villa. It was everything we thought it would be and more. The place and the views are amazing. Shane is such a cool guy and a great cook. Dice is the man as well and Suzi is a sweetheart. She babysat the kids one night for us. What a great staff. Couldn’t have asked for anything better from any of them. They were all so helpful. We hope to get back there next year!
We stayed here with 2 other couples, what a great vacation, This is the first time that we have done this type of vacation and is definitely the way to go! The staff, Shane , Suzie and Daniel treated us like old friends, we were really taken care of, the house was beautiful, beyond all our expectations, definitely will be back, do not hesitate booking this vacation
The property was beautiful! All the staff was exceptional! Shane made us delicious meals, and accompanied us for some outings. Bryan was a great driver! Daniel was friendly and made sure all our needs were met! Thanks to all for making this a fabulous, hassle free vacation! And thanks for the wonderful birthday cake Shane!
Negril was a fishing village in the late 70's now home to a very diverse & interesting tourist destination. The exposure to real Jamaica is likely the best in Negril. Its all about the beautiful views on the West Side and the amazing Sunsets. There are ample dining and shopping locations. Grocery, Pharmacy and anything you need while away can be easily found. Money exchange is better in Negril than the airport, but US dollar is accepted everywhere. While at High Life Villa we have prepared a guide of tried and true locations for dining, shopping, snorkeling, beach combing, and must see attractions. There is no shortage of activity in the Negril area, checking into High Life will likely be all you need for the perfect get away.
