The year 2014 has shaped up to be an interesting one in real estate, with new development schemes being constructed not only in St. Catherine, but also the cool hills of Mandeville and beyond. The desire to build on our dreams, raise families and secure investment options continue to drive developers to provide beautiful homes for Jamaicans, both here and overseas. Lets face it, everyone young or old, rich or otherwise wants a piece of the rock.
Places & Spaces in its continued effort to be the real estate magazine of choice for the discerning reader, has progressively stepped up its own game to keep abreast of our readers demands as well as market trends. We always endeavour to be current and aware of the issues and events that affect and shape the course of the industry in which we operate.
As our readership has grown significantly over the past two years, we
are more than happy to increase our overall offering of listings, housing
schemes and features. Within our pages are comprehensive and enlightening features pertaining to topics relevant to the sustainability of the real estate market as well as lifestyle content that will assist in turning any space in your home into an oasis or a sanctuary.
Issue number six is all about spotlighting buildings and schemes you may have noticed and wondered about, such as the much talked about Musgrave Professional Suites and the eco-friendly Moorlands Manor. Our cover story spotlights a healthy slice of gourmet all-inclusive luxury in Negril, courtesy of Azul Sensatori Jamaica, which is THE place to relax and
rejuvenate oneself in the west.
Additionally, Places & Spaces features articles on designing your own walk-in closet; great ways to exercise in small spaces and what you need to know in deciding whether to rent or buy property.

MoonDanceTwo greatluxury destinations
Moon Dance Resorts has two beautiful locations in Negril, Jamaica; one is on the famous seven-mile beach and the other is on the Cliffs, known as the West End. At the Cliffs there is something for everyone to enjoy, from the active adventurer who wants to cliff jump and snorkel, to the relaxed traveller who just wants to sit by the pool and
get a massage. This is the ideal place for the seeker of luxury, peace and contentment. Then there is the beach location: nestled on a 300-foot stretch of prime Negril beachfront, you will find Moon Dance Villas, a stunning property of elegant accommodation featuring modern
architecture with traditional finishes.
