Why Pamela Johnson chose Jamaica

Stone Harbour is a property on Old Fort Bay, the beach where we raised our children on summer, spring, and winter vacations. Knowing we wanted our grandchildren to experience the colors, sea, music, food, and magic that is uniquely Jamaica, we decided to buy this property and renovate. The renovations and designs are an on-going labor-of-love, as each year the gardens become more spectacular and the amenities more comfortable.

What makes this villa unique

I have never known any guest to come to Stone Harbour and not experience a wonderful change for the better, whether they bring paints and cameras for artistic work, using Jamaica's remarkable colors, or come with family to swim, eat, play games and share memorable time, each guest has always left with the dream to return. Our remarkable staff will pamper, answer questions about island life, and ensure that your holiday is special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The only thing that makes leaving Stone Harbour bearable is the thought of coming back soon! We had the BEST vacation ever."??

Anyone looking for an incredible retreat this home offers it all. All the feeling of an all inclusive but with the privacy and peacefulness of home. Don't forget your snorkel gear as the waters are teaming with fish. Will definitely be back next year!!!

Beyond Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Once again HomeAway has met and surpassed my expectations. Pamela and her staff are beyond excellent. The home and grounds are beautiful. The views breath taking. The only mistake we made was going out to dinner one night. Should have stayed home for wonderful food and excellent service.

Any help we needed to go any place was met. The staff handled all requests and we had one child who had food limits and it was always addressed for her to be very happy at every meal.

First vacation I have been on that I did not want to go home. That says it all.

The comforts of home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Amazing vacation! When we drove onto the property, we were blown away by the beautiful grounds and view of the water. As we pulled in, Delma, Tony and staff were waiting to greet us on the step. My husband and I, our four boys (11, 9, 2, 5 months), and my mom were glad the experience of the airport and long ride were over. But before we got out of the van, 'Miss Delma' reached in and offered "let me have that baby". That set the tone and summed up the warmth and hospitality of our vacation. The house was beautiful, the grounds immaculate, and the accommodations were perfect. Working with Pamela via email and phone to arrange for an extra crib and other necessities before we arrived saved a lot of stress. Tony made sure that everything was set up and waiting for us. Our boys loved their rooms and Oma had her own suite overlooking the pool. Delma's cooking was delicious and the fresh fruit every morning was perfect. My husband raved about Delma's jerk chicken and I loved her lobster the best, but every meal was great. She even made special things for our picky 2 year old, and made sure she always had her secret mashed potatoes available for him once she saw that he was hooked. Tony was on top of everything and researched a 'dirty banana' to make sure we had our favorite tropical drink. Tony even dimmed the lights and moved speakers to the pool to make a romantic setting for my husband and I on our last evening. Everything was so relaxing, yet there was plenty to do for the kids between the pool, hot tub, beach, and running around the property. Second was always providing us info about the property and area, grabbing us fresh coconuts, and even personally escorted us on a long walk down the beach to 'laughing waters' - it was a beautiful thing to see. Delma went into town with my husband and mom to grab souvenirs and show them the town. Our kids got comfortable with Delma and Tony quickly as they are so warm and friendly. Our 2 year old still talks about the pics he got with Delma and Tony when we were in "Maica". It was so sad to leave, and we promised ourselves that we will go back, and we will! If you want to relax and be pampered in a beautiful private villa by warm caring people, this is the place to go.

The perfect Christmas vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Stone Harbor and are so grateful Christmas week available for us. The house was perfect, the family slept in the house and my husband and I in the cottage by the ocean. We loved listening to the waves and crickets going to sleep each night and waking each morning. It was like heaven!

Words cannot describe Miss Delma's cooking and hospitality. Food was fabulous and we ate everything she made for us, one meal more delicious than the next. You're entire staff is by far THE BEST! Tony so accommodating and attentive to every detail and Second arranged lots of fun excursions that we were able to do within the area. Rose kept everything neat and clean and we barely noticed she was around. I hope they enjoyed having us as much as we loved being with them.

We loved the pool, hot tub, shuffle board, kayaks, grounds beaches and everything about Stone Harbor.

We're looking forward to returning, thank you so much for having us as guests in your beautiful Jamaican home.

Third visit

  • 5 of 5

I am sitting in Stone Harbour Villa as I type and trying to come to terms with the fact that tomorrow is my last full day here. My husband and I have been here twice before with our children, but came just the two of us this time. It has been wonderfully relaxing. The new gazebo on the property has been perfect for our lunch each day and a great place for massages. The house is beautiful and comfortable and the staff is absolutely amazing. Tony and Delma see to your every need and wish. Delma is a great cook and makes sure she knows your personal preferences. Second keeps the grounds perfect and is eager to get you a kayak, boogie board, or find shells for you. We will miss these wonderful people and property and will return as soon as possible!

Owner's Response: Erik and Gina, I am so happy that you are having a great time. Paradise, yes? I'm also glad that you liked our surprises. We just finished the gazebo before you came--a bit more to do, the curtains are being made, for one thing! The furniture is arriving for the pergola under the breadfruit tree, as well. Next time you come we'll have more surprises for you! My warmest regards, Pamela Johnson Stone Harbour Villa
