Experience Real Jamaica. Quietly nestled in the hills above the West End, High Life 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 home. 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 upper viewing and tanning platform. 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.
