Our Story

Nestled in the tranquil parish of Hanover, stands the intricately designed, Poetreef Villa.

Artistic masterpiece

A 3-story Villa

An artistic masterpiece, this 3-story villa is built within 3 acres of lush tropical gardens and coastal land. With clear views of the breath-taking Caribbean Sea, Poetreef offers guests an intimate and serene escape to relax and rejuvenate from their busy lives and commune with friends, family and nature.

Poetreef’s design incorporates the best of the Jamaican vernacular architectural style. Built entirely from cut stone, this accentuates the property’s characteristic warmth, historic feeling and pristine natural surroundings. Dedicated to reflecting this style throughout, the highly skilled artistry extends to the interiors, which boast clean cut pure stone walls intricately laid to echo the property’s contemporary tropical look and feel.

Unique Marriage

Wood + Stone

The property’s interior amplifies the outdoors with the use of nearby local woods – Broadleaf, Blue Mahoe and Cedar Woods. The use of local wood is a focal feature seen in the craftsmanship of a wooden staircase which connects the lower and upper level as well as sculptures by local artists placed thoughtfully throughout the property. The unique marriage of wood and stone sets this villa apart from the rest and represents the quintessential Caribbean cut stone architecture.


A Work of Love

Poetreef is a work of love built on four years of dedicated planning and collaboration to achieve perfection. This intimate property acts as the perfect haven for those seeking tranquility, solitude and a true nature escape.

Poetreef is a poetic representation of nature and art combined. Formally owned by renowned American poet Mr. Gerd Stern for decades, the current owner, Bart, has retained the beauty of Poetreef’s vision. Poetreef represents a love letter to his children and a symbol of their timeless love for Jamaica.
