"TEK TIME" is Jamaican patois for the advice that almost all of us need: TAKE TIME to slow down and take in all that’s good and beautiful around us.
Our prescription for slowing down your pace is a glamorous, fully-staffed five-bedroom villa with private pool ... on the edge of a championship golf course.
The talent of taking time comes naturally in your bubbling hot tub ...
... especially after a dip in your sparkling pool, kept immaculate by your gardener.
Remember to take time also to watch a game or two on TV in the nearby bar while your butler keeps the fresh fruit and rum punch coming.
Thoughtful planning led to the full bathroom just few barefoot steps beyond the pool and bar.
The villa's enviable location is adjacent to the 12th fairway of Cinnamon Hill. From the edge of Tek Time's property, guests have walk-on access before 8 a.m. and after 4 p.m to practice and joggers can use the cart paths.
Cinnamon Hill is one of Jamaica's most beautiful golf courses. It truly is in your back yard. Half Moon and White Witch are five minutes away.
Half Moon membership comes with Tek Time rental. Enjoy its beach ...
...and excellent tennis facility. Tek Time guests have complimentary membership.
No room in Tek Time is without a window-wall and a view.
The bedroom wings are joined by a central living space and stairway to the second floor.
Open plan design features wide spaces, cool marble floors and casual comfort everywhere.
The main living room merges seamlessly into a comfy verandah. Here, under a high ceiling and in an environ of lush landscaping, guests are just a few steps from the pool.
Take time for mealtime ... memorable at Tek Time when served on a custom-made tree-trunk pedestal topped with clear glass.
Or dine inside by a window wall open to a garden.
Or request service in a more private spot on the side terrace for just two or four of you.
Carved out of the pool border is a shallow ledge for youngsters to splash around safely. The ledge can also serve as a fine place for a wheelchair.

With wide spaces inside and out, Tek Time comfortably accommodates friends and families of 10 or more guests ...
... looked after by the warm, thoughtful staff who quietly pamper their guests without ever intruding.
Before you leave, stroll up the lawn to a hidden bridge that leads to a quiet spot: a secluded thatch gazebo for laptops and naps or just for taking time to observe where you are this week.
This really is where you are. Take time to appreciate!
