Fantastic golf courses in Rose Hall and Ironshore.

About Evelyne Kalteis

I am 66 years and I live in Germany.

Evelyne Kalteis purchased this house in 2012

Why Evelyne Kalteis chose Jamaica

When we visited Jamaica a few years ago for the first time, we liked it so well that we purchased a plot of land.

In 2012, the house has been completed and the second house is already finished so far that we can inhabit it. Jamaica is always worth a trip.

What makes this house unique

The house overlooks the sea and has a private sandy beach. Very suitable for children as the water is very shallow at the edge.

The view from the garden and from the bedrooms are beautiful. You will be outdoors almost the whole day and enjoy the warmth and sometimes the warm rain. We have found very dear Jamaican friends, who take care of the house and also like to give advice to the travellers or they also optionally accompany as a guide for a reasonable fee. Montego Bay is only 10 minutes away by car. The bus station is around 300 m away or you can take a taxi.

We love the country very much because the people there are much more relaxed than in Germany. 'Come soon'!

We not only love the turquoise-blue sea, but also the year-round green vegetation in the mountains.

Good Times

  • 5 of 5

It was truly a delight to arrive at this house by the sea. PapaD and Tman picked us up at the airport and graciously showed us around the property and were available if we had any questions. The property was very clean, tasteful and ready for our one week stay. Everything you need for a vacation stay is there and the availability of wifi was truly helpful. The porch and little beach offer plenty of comfortable outdoor relaxation. Fortunate of having found this little place - we were lucky to attend a low-key, local performance of Jimmy Cliff in his hometown.

Thank you Evelyne for making your place available - hope to come back

Beautiful property but a few setbacks

  • 3 of 5

The property is beautiful and in a nice location. TMan is the BEST caretaker we've ever had the pleasure of meeting. He was always checking in us, cleaning, picking things up, hanging outdoor lighting, he even picked up souvenirs for us. An absolutely wonderful man! A few drawbacks with

The house, 1.) no hot water in the master bath (in the sink or the shower), and no urgency to get it fixed, so we all had to take turns using the guest shower. This was a huge inconvenience in the morning when we were all trying to get ready for the day. 2.) There is no air conditioning in the main part of the house, only the bedrooms, and we had to close the windows and doors the first night we were there to keep the water flies out. Needless to say, it was sweltering downstairs. 3.) there is no real beach per se. There are stairs down to the water and you can easily access but the water breaks right up against the wall so don't plan to play on the beach or lay in the sand. 4.) the doors and windows didn't securely lock (fixtures were loose and/or missing) so we put our valuables in our bedrooms and locked our bedroom doors every night). It appears they are actively working on the property to improve, but was not bothersome to us at all. Again, it is a beautiful area, a restaurant, food market and souvenir shop are within walking distance and we did enjoy our Jamacian vacation.

Owner's Response: I already ordered new glas sliding doors, because nobody can fix the door! I'm sorry about no hot water in the master bedroom! Sometimes it is not possible to get a plumber so quick! Slogan in Jamaica: Soon come!!!

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful beach house. We spent a great deal of time on the patio area enjoying some of the best tropical breezes on the island. We should know we drove from Ocho Rios to Lucea and the house hosted the best breezes we could find to combat the tropical heat. The private beach was very enjoyable for snorkeling be sure to bring water shoes but it is very easy to pick up a pair at any of the souvenir shops for about 10.00. Our favorite part of the trip was our most accommodating host Evelyne , Tman and Papa D. They were generous with information and so much fun to be with. They were all very special people. We look forward to coming back and sharing this with our family. Thank you so much for the memorable evening at Pier One too!
