Fleming's original house Goldeneye, now part of Island Outpost's luxurious retreats
Goldeneye, a luxury retreat in Jamaica
The original Fleming house is owned by Chris Blackwell, who landed his first job in the entertainment industry as a location manager on Dr. No, after being personally recommended by Fleming. Besides helping EON out on occasions, Blackwell founded Island Records and made fame with artists like U2, Robert Palmer, Grace Jones and a local musician called Bob Marley.

Twelve years after Fleming died, Blackwell talked Marley into buying Goldneye, but when the latter chickened out thinking it was ‘too posh’, Blackwell bought the estate himself. For years it has been a private retreat for celebrities like Johnny Depp, Harrison Ford, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Sting, who claims to have written Every Breath You Take in Fleming’s study.
Ian Fleming's Goldeneye
Goldeneye is now part of Blackwell’s Island Outpost Resorts and consists of Fleming’s main house and three clusters of private villa’s with multiple bedrooms named after Bond girls. While the private villa’s start at 660 US$ a night, the main house rents for 2,500 US$ a night. But for this money you will have access to all the private beaches where Ian Fleming used to go swimming, you will have stunning sea views from all verandas and windows, an in-room media centre with CD and DVD libraries, fresh tropical flowers and exquisite Jamaican food and drinks.
