Why Pamela Johnson chose Jamaica

Stone Harbour is a property on Old Fort Bay, the beach where we raised our children on summer, spring, and winter vacations. Knowing we wanted our grandchildren to experience the colors, sea, music, food, and magic that is uniquely Jamaica, we decided to buy this property and renovate. The renovations and designs are an on-going labor-of-love, as each year the gardens become more spectacular and the amenities more comfortable.

What makes this villa unique

I have never known any guest to come to Stone Harbour and not experience a wonderful change for the better, whether they bring paints and cameras for artistic work, using Jamaica's remarkable colors, or come with family to swim, eat, play games and share memorable time, each guest has always left with the dream to return. Our remarkable staff will pamper, answer questions about island life, and ensure that your holiday is special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The only thing that makes leaving Stone Harbour bearable is the thought of coming back soon! We had the BEST vacation ever."??

Doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

Two families traveled to Stone Harbour for a full week. We had four adults, two 18 year old boys, one 15 year old boy, one 15 year old girl and a 9 year old boy. As a mother of two teen-age boys, I haven't felt so well cared for in decades. I have never had a vacation that I felt so incredibly rejuvenated!


The staff was simply amazing. They are the ones that made the trip so perfect! Tony, the butler, thought of things before we did - heating up the jacuzzi at the end of the day, drinks in a cooler by the pool, and so on. Delma, the chef, made us the best home cooked meals we could imagine. She put all her love into every dish. Keisha and Beryl, the maids, kept every bit of the house beyond spic and span, they lovingly did our laundry and put water in our room each night. The gardener, "Second", kept immaculate care of the grounds, took us on a beach hike and kept the kids busy with kites on windy days.


The house itself was in great condition. Everything was clean and well cared for. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of places to lounge, play games and hang out. We all loved the pool and the jacuzzi. We used the beach every day. All of us loved boogie boarding and going for walks. "Second" showed us the best spot to snorkel where the water was calm and the corals hid hundreds of fish. My son even caught a lobster (that Delma cooked up for him).


We went on several outings while we were there and used a local driver (Michael) who was also wonderful. We went ATVing up the mountain, we went to the blue hole (a big favorite), we went to the Green Grotto and to the Dunns River Falls. All were not too long of a drive and everyone in our party was able to do these activities.


We chose to eat all our meals at Stone Harbour. I can't imagine a better place to eat. Delma makes all authentic Jamacian foods. She was a great meal planner spacing out our choices and giving us great recommendations. Lunch was always casual by the pool. I loved that she often served leftovers as well as sandwiches for lunch. It was a thoughtful use of the food purchased. My personal favorite was the Jamaican breakfast. Ackee and saltfish for breakfast is my new obsession.


Many thanks to Pamela for sharing her home with us. Our 18 year olds leave for college soon and Stone Harbour served as the perfect backdrop for lots of family time. We will remember this vacation for a lifetime!

Anyone looking for an incredible retreat this home offers it all. All the feeling of an all inclusive but with the privacy and peacefulness of home.

Beyond Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Once again HomeAway has met and surpassed my expectations. Pamela and her staff are beyond excellent. The home and grounds are beautiful. The views breath taking. The only mistake we made was going out to dinner one night. Should have stayed home for wonderful food and excellent service.

Any help we needed to go any place was met. The staff handled all requests and we had one child who had food limits and it was always addressed for her to be very happy at every meal.

First vacation I have been on that I did not want to go home. That says it all.

The comforts of home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Amazing vacation! When we drove onto the property, we were blown away by the beautiful grounds and view of the water. As we pulled in, Delma, Tony and staff were waiting to greet us on the step. My husband and I, our four boys (11, 9, 2, 5 months), and my mom were glad the experience of the airport and long ride were over. But before we got out of the van, 'Miss Delma' reached in and offered "let me have that baby". That set the tone and summed up the warmth and hospitality of our vacation. The house was beautiful, the grounds immaculate, and the accommodations were perfect. Working with Pamela via email and phone to arrange for an extra crib and other necessities before we arrived saved a lot of stress. Tony made sure that everything was set up and waiting for us. Our boys loved their rooms and Oma had her own suite overlooking the pool. Delma's cooking was delicious and the fresh fruit every morning was perfect. My husband raved about Delma's jerk chicken and I loved her lobster the best, but every meal was great. She even made special things for our picky 2 year old, and made sure she always had her secret mashed potatoes available for him once she saw that he was hooked. Tony was on top of everything and researched a 'dirty banana' to make sure we had our favorite tropical drink. Tony even dimmed the lights and moved speakers to the pool to make a romantic setting for my husband and I on our last evening. Everything was so relaxing, yet there was plenty to do for the kids between the pool, hot tub, beach, and running around the property. Second was always providing us info about the property and area, grabbing us fresh coconuts, and even personally escorted us on a long walk down the beach to 'laughing waters' - it was a beautiful thing to see. Delma went into town with my husband and mom to grab souvenirs and show them the town. Our kids got comfortable with Delma and Tony quickly as they are so warm and friendly. Our 2 year old still talks about the pics he got with Delma and Tony when we were in "Maica". It was so sad to leave, and we promised ourselves that we will go back, and we will! If you want to relax and be pampered in a beautiful private villa by warm caring people, this is the place to go.

The perfect Christmas vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Stone Harbor and are so grateful Christmas week available for us. The house was perfect, the family slept in the house and my husband and I in the cottage by the ocean. We loved listening to the waves and crickets going to sleep each night and waking each morning. It was like heaven!

Words cannot describe Miss Delma's cooking and hospitality. Food was fabulous and we ate everything she made for us, one meal more delicious than the next. You're entire staff is by far THE BEST! Tony so accommodating and attentive to every detail and Second arranged lots of fun excursions that we were able to do within the area. Rose kept everything neat and clean and we barely noticed she was around. I hope they enjoyed having us as much as we loved being with them.

We loved the pool, hot tub, shuffle board, kayaks, grounds beaches and everything about Stone Harbor.

We're looking forward to returning, thank you so much for having us as guests in your beautiful Jamaican home.
