Kingston House Rental Photos and Description

A 5 bed, 5 bath home 4,000 up in Jamaica's Blue Mountains with stunning views

Stepping Stones is an inviting 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom home in the enchanting neighborhood of Greenwich, approx. 4,000 feet up in Jamaica’s famed Blue Mountains. Located in one of the world’s finest coffee growing areas, the community of Greenwich is built on the site of an early British Military camp, about a mile from the main military training installation at Newcastle, which is still in use today by the Jamaica Defense Force. Steeped in history, and nestled among spectacular gardens, this heavenly retreat will inspire the soul and leave you feeling rejuvenated and at peace.

Go for a stroll in the gardens, filled with a variety of flowers and plants, including: hydrangeas, lilies, anthuriums, coffee, wild strawberries, nasturtiums, ferns, bananas and many more.

The property consists of the main house, Stepping Stones, extensively refurbished in the 1980s, with 3 bedrooms (2 with queen size beds and one with twin beds) and 3 bathrooms, living and dining rooms, kitchen and a large verandah with breathtaking views over Kingston, the harbour, and the mountains. Features include a gas fireplace, satellite dish and Internet. There is a newly-built cottage, Pebbles, completed in 2013 with 2 bedrooms (both with queen size beds), 2 bathrooms, a kitchenette (with coffee maker, small fridge, a toaster oven and a microwave) and a verandah with views over Kingston, the Caribbean Sea and the mountains.

You have a choice of dining inside or on the verandah.

Most visitors explore the area by foot: there is the Hollywell National Recreational Park, with its lovely footpaths; The Gap Café for good Jamaican cooking and fresh Blue Mountain Coffee.

A little further away is the famous Strawberry Hill Hotel and Spa in Irish Town, about 25 minutes away by car; EITS Café an organic farm and restaurant also near Irish Town, (which will deliver to Greenwich); and the Old Tavern Coffee Farm (tours can be arranged), which produces some of the island’s finest coffee.

No pets allowed and no smoking indoors

Rental includes a manager and cook.

Come and enjoy the peace and tranquility of Jamaica’s mountains.

About George Cumming

Debbie and George were both born and raised in Jamaica, and were married in the gardens of Stepping Stones 25 years ago. They own a successful real estate company in Kingston and enjoy hiking, mountain biking, and traveling.

George Cumming purchased this house in 1987

Why George Cumming chose Kingston

Like many Kingston residents, Debbie and George visited the area as kids, enjoying hiking and picnics in the mountains. Debbie's parents purchased the property in 1987, and Debbie and George took it over in 2013, adding a 2 bed, 2 bath cottage.

What makes this house unique

Greenwich is a very special place to all who visit- the views, the air, the walks in the garden and the way time just seems to pass more slowly.

Wonderful Home in the Most Beautiful Area of Jamaica

  • 5 of 5
The Blue Mountains are more beautiful than any beach in Jamaica. The views, plants, flowers, birds, are amazing. The weather is cool and perfect - even when the clouds roll in. The home is delightful and very comfortable. We especially enjoyed sitting on the porch. The staff was kind and unobtrusive. My husband and I hiked up to Holywell National Park, drove down a little ways and had delicious dinners at EITS Cafe, sublime coffee at Cafe Blue, read and relaxed. It was just perfect. The drive up the mountain from Kingston is rough but worth it.
