About the property

Beautiful 3 story home; feathered 2bedrooms, 3 full bath, living, and Kitchen

This three-story home is located in the mountains on a very fruitful property with absolutely nothing to do. It features three bedrooms and four bathrooms. Each bedroom has its own bath room on the top floor that open up to the balcony, where you can sit and enjoy the view of the Caribbean sea. The second floor features a large kitchen with stove, refrigerator, beautiful handmade cedar cabinets, & granite countertops; a large living and dining room combo, and a full bathroom. There is also a balcony to sit and enjoy a cup of Blue Mountain coffee and watch the sunrise. The bottom floor consist of 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, kitchen, and dining area. However, the bottom floor is NOT included in the nightly rate. There is a river for hiking at the bottom of the property, about 1.5 miles from the house. Also, there is transportation and a driver available to take you anywhere. An additional fee for transportation usage. The top and second floors are all for your convenience. There are no maid or chef on the property, but if guests need those services, they can be arranged (at additional cost) by the owners.

About Tom and Eloise Collins

I am from Jamaica, and my husband is from from New York; we have our permanent home in the United States. We have been married for 16 wonderful years, with three children.

Tom and Eloise Collins purchased this chateau / country house in 2009

Why Tom and Eloise Collins chose Lucea

I was born and raised on this same property, but I left there at the age of sixteen. As soon as my husband went to Jamaica and saw the beauty of the place, he immediately fell in love with it. My father died in 2006 and shortly after he died, my husband and my brother started to build this dream home that we call our home away from home when we visit the island.

I pray that you enjoy the property the same way as we do!

Good Luck!!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Peace and tranquility are sometimes hard to achieve in this face-paced world, but this place will allow you to rest, read, relax, and enjoy the natural fruits that nature has to offer. This place also gives you the opportunity to connect with your inner peace and your spiritual guide.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Andrew..

I am elated to know that you enjoyed your stay at our place. I hope the next time that you visit the road and internet service will be a lot better because the government promised us.. Unfortunately, we are at their mercy for those amenities..

The property is located in the country side right off of the main road. The house itself is very warm and inviting, though it is not an open floor plan; the space felt very large and open. The rooms are very big with bathrooms to match. Each room has access to a balcony that looked down onto a very lush valley and out to the ocean. Overall I would recommend this location to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle of the city. There is ample street and secured parking if you need it. There is a grounds keeper available should you need help with anything. Over all it was a beautiful home and I would rent the space again.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This really is a beautiful and well equipped house. The top and first floor balconies look out over the tree-tops into a lushly vegetated valley, one end of which ends at the Caribbean Sea. With a little patience you will see humming birds, parrots, parakeets, turkey vultures (called John Crows locally) and many more species. all from the balcony. The perfect place to drink your morning coffee. There are mangoes (just out of arms reach) and a breadfruit tree beside the house along with fruit trees I've never heard of before. Every bedroom had a full bathroom en suite and an extra bathroom on the first floor in the living area. We (2 Adults and 3 teenage boys)had the place to ourselves as a holiday let but I understand from the owner it could be used as a bed and breakfast. A decent internet access was provided. The house keeper lives on site in a separate building and was always helpful but never intrusive. This would suit very well either two couples or a family of six or less. There is air-con fitted although we never used it. The house is sat beside a quite road and is about 20 minutes from the main coast road and another 10 minutes to a usable small beach for swimming or sunbathing, the locals call it the Steamer beach as the remains of a shipwreck are still visible. There are a few other beaches but if you are looking for a fully "manicured" one then its probably best going to somewhere like Negril. The road up to the house is a little potholed in places but still drivable, I'm told it will be repaired soon. For eating out then Lucea is the nearest place we used, we used Lucea for shopping also. If you wanted something a little more upmarket then probably better to look for something nearer Montego Bay. If you want a break away from tourist hot spots then this will definitely be worth considering. The owners are very amenable (they let us change our dates quite late with no charge whatsoever). The whole family fully recommends it.
