IAN FLEMING, a British naval intelligence officer during World War II, lived a similar life like James Bond alter ego. He wrote 12 bestselling James Bond novels while wintering at the Jamaica beach house called Goldeneye in the village of Oracabess, near Ocho Rios. Every noon he thought out his plots while while floating face down in the water watching fish through a facemask.

IAN FLEMING borrowed the name James Bond from the name of the local bird watching expert. So it may have been more than coincidence that in Dr.No, Bond disposes of the evil doctor by smothering him in bird droppings. The first of the Bond films, Dr. No was shot almost entirely in Jamica.

IAN FLEMING, whose books earned him more than USD1 million a year, also owned a Londown townhouse near Buckingham Palace and a seaside apartment in Sandwich, England, but he returned each winter to work in Jamaica. Goldeneye, which was later owned by reggae singer Bob Marley, is a large, traditonal Jamaican house with three bedrooms, a living room, and a porch in the back overlooking the sea. Its interior is filled with 007 memorabilia including scripts, photos, and movie posters from all over the world.

Goldeneye is now an Island Outpost resort and includes four additional villas.
