Shaken...not stirred

Ready for a little escape... to a historic villa
nestled among
tropical forests , verdant gardens...maybe
perched on a seaside bluff overlooking the Caribbean?
Go ahead...put a little distance between yourself and the rest of the world.
you've earned it.


The lifestyle is pure Jamaican...
Relaxed...
a bohemian rhythm and tempo.


Jamaican easy...


Jamaican Breezy...


The Goldeneye resort is a historic venue ...built as a secluded retreat in the 1940's.
Adding to the allure and cachet...
It is the home where Ian Fleming wrote all of his James Bond novels.
and where... more recently,
Sting wrote 'Every Breath You Take'.


It offers a window to a different world...
surrounded by dense tropical vegetation
a private world...all of it's own.



Crisp ironed white linens...open windows and doors
with intoxicating white sanded views...


Outdoor showers and baths....bathing in the lush
tropical foliage... come on...you can do it!

Just the place 007 would head for a little R&R....
Shaken, not stirred.

wow, oh wow, am speechless!! the view, the villa, the pool, did I say the view? yes the view, magnificent:))
Its guestbook is staggering and sounds exciting, the birthplace of 007 and a classic like Sting's "Every breath you take", impressive.
Thx for sharing:)

Yahooooooo... this was nice since we woke up with a snow on the ground (I like snow I just didn't know it was happening while I was sleeping!). The photos are beautiful and as always nice to take an imaginary trip with you. Hugs...
