Guestbook comments from the owner
I have had the benefit of traveling to Jamaica and staying the The Highland House 3 times. Each with a group of friends, and not always the same group. The staff, the property, the food, the organic gardens, the decor, the view... All top notch! I can't wait for my next trip to the house. It is a favorite destination for rest and relaxation.
