Tranquility Estate has been our home for the last 15 years – first as a holiday getaway and now as a permanent residence. It is one of the most beautiful homes in Kingston, in the exclusive area of Jacks Hill.
We offer bed and breakfast facilities in the main house only.
We have a self contained studio that sleeps 2.
The house sits on three levels, the main house containing 4 bedroom.
A self-contained studio apartment which overlooks the swimming pool at the lower level.
The property covers just under 6,000 sq. ft and our Mediterranean style house is built of red bricks and mahogany with cool black marble floor throughout. The Estate sits on 12 acres of Jamaican hillside and offers 320° views of Kingston, the surrounding hills and mountains and is the last house at the end of a private road. When you’re on the veranda, you can choose the dazzling views of Kingston or the serenity of the hills and mountains. We have a terraced garden, home to the ever blooming Bougainvillea, avocados, oranges, and lime trees along with our bee hives.
One of my many skills is that I am a trained Cordon Bleu cook, who loves to do just that. In addition to cooking, I love all kinds of music, the theatre, travel, culture, reading and collecting books, politics and my most favourite – people. At present, I work with the gardeners with the clear aim of turning the Estate into one of self-sufficiency, so that in time we will produce we will produce most of the food eaten on the Estate. It is a very exciting time! We have planted bananas, tomatoes, okra, yams, cassava, potatoes, sweet potatoes, red peas, gungo peas, spinach, callaloo, pumpkin and watermelons – no small task! The Estate already has growing 7 types of mango, grapefruit, lychees, oranges, limes, coconut, avocado pear, soursop and other fruits and vegetables. If you would like a tour of the grounds (and you have strong boots and a good head for heights) just ask me and we will provide you a walking stick and show you around.
I look forward to sharing my home with you and I’ll do everything possible to ensure you enjoy your stay.
