The Geejam Collection, owned by music industry veterans Jon Baker and Steve Beaver, has just revealed the completion of Cocosan, the newest addition to its private villa development in Port Antonio, Jamaica. Cocosan is a partially renovated and newly built property located on the San San Estate, an area originally developed during the 1960s heyday of Port Antonio when the jet-setting elite including Errol Flynn, Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan, Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza, Garfield Weston and Lady Price, fell in love with the region. They recognized that the 1000-acre San San Estate was, as famous resident Errol Flynn put it, “more beautiful than any woman [he’d] ever seen.”

Cocosan sits in a hilltop location and offers views across the jungle, the John Crow and Blue Mountain chains and Portland’s coastline.

The three-level, six-bedroom villa accommodates up to 12. Large, high-ceilinged rooms, some with balconies, display contemporary, collectable artwork and photography curated according to each incoming guest’s taste from Baker’s personal collection. Cool Vibe: Custom vinyl turntables and mixing consoles add to the character of the villa in keeping with Geejam’s musical roots.
