Golden Eye Jamaica
by Deon Clarke

The name’s Bond, James Bond. You would not have been born in this century if you did not know this familiar line of the prestigious action-packed James Bond movies. 

However, do you know where this all started?

That’s right, no other place than Oracabessa Bay, St. Mary, Jamaica where the dream home of the famous English writer Ian Flemming and British Naval intelligence agent, was named “Golden Eye”. 


Historical Background

Ian Flemming - Golden Eye JamaicaIan Fleming (1908-1964)

Legend has it, that the name “Golden Eye” came from the name of one of his secret missions during World War II.  Originally a “donkey race track” this modern luxury boasts a panoramic view of the ocean and lush vegetation of flora and fauna which he adored.

Golden eye sits on 15 acres of land and is the birthplace of all 13 of James Bond novels written by Ian Flemming. These thrillers written in his bedroom, were driven by his naval intelligence experience and were to later make their mark in the film industry.

The property is adjacent to the James Bond beach and just 20 minutes from the town of Ocho Rios.  This was a popular destination for many of the rich and famous a few decades ago and is still enjoyed by many celebrities today. 

If you have a passion for writing, you might just be inspired when you visit the Golden Eye.
