About John Hendrickson

I am a born and bred child of Jamaica now currently residing in Sydney Australia but I look forward to every opportunity I get to recharge in Jamaica with its rich culture of those who live here while enjoying the full flavor cuisine, traditions, art, language and music. It does not take me long to fall back into step with the island of 'Soon Come' and everything 'All Right'. It would be my pleasure for you to stay at Paradise Plum so you can enjoy your little piece of Jamaica as much as I do mine.

John Hendrickson purchased this house in 2011

Why John Hendrickson chose Jamaica North Coast

I am very proud of this property with its prime location within the gated community located in the prestige residential and resort area of Rose Hall, St James. It has beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea from the hills of the Rose Hall White Witch Golf Club while still located close to all the resorts, attractions and shopping that the city of Montego Bay has to offer. The property comes fully staffed with a chef, butler and housekeeper!

Prepare to be completely indulged and spoilt on this vacation! Our friendly staff will offer you a warm welcome and serve you with traditional Jamaican hospitality for the duration of your stay. Come for a visit, and we will do all we can to make sure you come back as friends.

What makes this house unique

Paradise Plum is a private property with a beautiful pool and entertainment area overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

Covering an area of over 3000 square feet, the luxury villa has 4 bedrooms with luxurious en-suite bathrooms. These four bedrooms can accommodate up to 8 guests while two additional guests can use the full sleep sofa area on the first floor. All four bedrooms are equipped with televisions and cable service.

After a refreshing swim in the pool, you can rest comfortably on the lounging chairs on the deck. The poolside is also the perfect spot for morning coffee or before-dinner drinks! The pool is surrounded by a beautifully landscaped garden.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I stayed at Paradise Plum for eight days through August 25, 2016. What can I say about our stay but that is was an incredible feeling to stay at a property where the staff and owner, was like our long last family. We are originally from Jamaica and it was good to come back home and have all our needs and wishes meet. We are so thankful and in awe of everyone at Paradise Plum, from John, who was very understanding and accommodating from our very first interaction. He was the ultimate host and the only thing that I wished was that we could have meet in person. Thank you for all that you did for my family and I during our stay. Mama D with her open and loving greetings and for treating everyone in my party with love and kindness especially my children. They loved her warmth and charm so much they truly miss her beautiful smile and wish that they were still there with her. :-) As far as our food was concerned, Chef Morgan went above and beyond when it came to our meals. We of course wanted authentic Jamaican food and he was more than willing to oblige us with that request and so much more. We even tried recreating a few dish at home and failed miserably. Derrick was so professional and was very attentive with all our needs, including getting me my authentic mint for my tea. Yes for all you Jamaicans authentic mint tea that you draw. HA. Our driver Godfrey was so amazing and so very patient with all of us. There was not one day that he came for us that we were ready to go and he never ever complained not once. He took us to amazing spots on the island and kept us safe and secure. Will I come back…definitely, absolutely, for sure. We loved our stay…we loved the staff…we love Jamaica.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Paradise Plum Villa in Montego Bay from 8/17 – 8/25/2016 with my family.

Before arriving at Paradise Plum I was unsure of what to expect – the pictures looked great on-line and the reviews were good, but still I was skeptical. We were met at the airport by Godfrey (driver) who was very courteous and professional. We then we drove to the villa and was met by Momma D (house keeper), Derek (butler) and chef Morgan with cool drinks, towels and the biggest smiles and welcoming spirits. My skepticism started to wane at that point and was completely gone once we were escorted inside and I looked around at what was to be my home for the next several days. The villa was very well kept and had all the amenities one would be looking for in a home away from home. I had one of the bedrooms on the second level which had a king size bed, lovely bathroom with double sinks and French doors that opened to the most breath taking view of the Caribbean sea, sunrises and sunsets.

The staff was very attentive and welcoming and as a result they felt more like family than folks we had just met. Momma D always made sure the bathrooms, bedrooms and living spaces were clean and would extend kind gestures of leaving fresh cut flowers on our beds. In addition, she would always be willing to accommodate us and go the extra mile to meet our needs. For example, a white dress that I thought was ruined because of food stains is now like brand new thanks to Momma D and the magic she worked to get the stains out. Derek would anticipate all our needs and would be ready to make “it” happen with the biggest smile. Chef Morgan is an amazing chef who prepared our meals with the utmost attention to details and presentation, resulting in the most delicious dishes. I consulted with Chef Morgan on doing a birthday dinner and I was extremely happy with the outcome of this dinner. He made it happen and we were all pleased with how delicious the food was and the care he took in presenting everything – one of my best birthday dinners!

It was with heavy hearts and sad faces when our stay at PP came to an end and we had to say good bye and depart. We will definitely be returning to PP!! I highly recommend Paradise Plum as a home- away- from home vacation destination!! Kudos to the staff again and thanks to you all for making my vacation and birthday an amazing experience!

May God bless you all!!

This place was glorious. Travel included 3 couple and 3 singles

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start!?! The welcoming was warm. We were picked up from the airport and arrived at Paradise Plum with cool towels from Mamma Dee, drinks from Derrick and food soon to be served for our late lunch. This place exceeded my imagination. The staff made sure we truly were on vacation. They were personable and put you at ease. Our clothes were washed if we liked(we provided the detergent) and the house was always clean. Mamma Dee made sure to keep towels at poolside. We never went without a drink thanks to Derrick. We stayed full because of the fine culinary skills of Chef Morgan. He was able to create any dish we requested. Or driver Frankie was kind and knowledgeable. He served not only as a driver but like a caring father figure and tour guide for our entire 7 days in Jamaica. This was truly Paradise. To all the staff our group will miss you. Thanks for the amazing hospitality and genuine pride in which you do your job. We truly felt like a family. Passporters 2016 will always remember our home away from home! Thanks to the owner, John, for having such magnificencet staff!

Best trip by far!

  • 5 of 5

I have taken several trips to Jamaica but this was the best by far. The care and love shown by all staff made this trip one to remember. The property was more beautiful than the pictures. We took walks around the property and saw marvelous views and all the rich greens and wonderful flowers that Jamaica is known for. Our driver was very knowledgable and we were able to do every excursion that we dreamed of doing with no questions. The staff of the house made us feel like we were home. We had excellent meals from the chef and I even had the perfect birthday dinner that ended with a delicious birthday cake. I can't wait to return.

Look no more.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Paradise Blue in Montego Bay and it was just perfect. The home is brand new and the decoration is first class. It has everything you could hope for. The beach is not far away and was a great. The pool and gazebo is so peaceful. I spent most of my time reading in the cool breeze on the gazebo lounges.

Hilton the chef is BRILLIANT! He can make anything. He made some Jamaican dishes like jerk chicken and peas and rice that my daughter went crazy over. There was so much food and all of it was good. Our butler Ryan really made our stay so easy so we didnt need to worry about anything. We have done villa holidays before but this is sooo good. We went for drinks at the yacht club next door which was really fun too.

There was no one else there so we felt like we owned the pool and gazebo. We loved the place. You cant fault it.

Rose Hall is widely regarded to be a visually impressive house and the most famous in Jamaica. It is a mansion in Jamaican Georgian style with a stone base and a plastered upper storey, high on the hillside, with a panorama view over the coast. It was built in the 1770s at a cost of about £30,000[1] and subsequently became the property of John Palmer. Hakewill visited the building and wrote:

"It is placed at a delightful elevation, and commands a very extensive sea view. Its general appearance has much of the character of a handsome Italian villa. A double flight of stone steps leads to an open portico, giving access to the entrance hall; on the left of which is the eating-room, and on the right the drawing-room, behind which are other apartments for domestic uses. The right wing, fitted up with great elegance, and enriched with painting and gilding, was the private apartment of the late Mrs. Palmer, and the left wing is occupied as servants’ apartments and offices. The principal staircase, in the body of the house, is a specimen of joinery in mahogany and other costly woods seldom excelled, and leads to a suite of chambers in the upper story."[2]

Rose Hall was restored in the 1960s to its former splendor, with mahogany floors, interior windows and doorways, paneling and wooden ceilings. It is decorated with silk wallpaper printed with palms and birds, ornamented with chandeliers and furnished with mostly European antiques. There is a bar downstairs and a restaurant.

The estate, and the adjoining plantation "Palmyra", was passed down to John Rose Palmer from his great uncle.

Rose-Hall estate had about 650 acres divided among sugar cane, grass, and about pasture for over 270 head of cattle. About 250 enslaved Africans were housed on Palmyra estate, which furnished about 1,250 acres.
