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 </p><p>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 </p><p>architecture with traditional finishes. </p><p>Be Inspired11</p><p>P l a c e s &amp; S p a c e s</p></li><li><p>12P l a c e s &amp; S p a c e s</p><p>has won back-to-back awards for their prime real</p><p>Before we take you on a tour through these two magnificent properties, you </p><p>can travel back in time on a journey through Negrils history. Negril was a sleepy fishing village until 1959 when the road was paved to link it to the rest </p><p>of the island. It started out as a popular getaway destination for Jamaicans and quickly grew to welcome the more adventurous travelers from overseas. </p><p>Before the development of guest house accommodation, visitors would sleep on the beach or room with local families. This is how Negril became known as the home of casual. Negril is famous for its unbroken, beautiful 7-mile white sand beach with the crystal-clear Caribbean Sea lapping at the shoreline. Imagine a place where the people are friendly, the food phenomenal, and the atmosphere unlike anywhere else in Jamaica. Negril has also developed an active and environmentally-conscious spirit.</p><p>Moon Dance VillasSitting on this magnificent beach, the discerning traveler will find the elegant </p><p>Moon Dance Villas. Set in a tropical paradise, the property consists of 6 stylish stand-alone villas, ranging from a 1,500 sq ft one-bedroom honeymoon suite </p><p>Set in a tropical paradise</p></li><li><p>with a private garden and Jacuzzi on the verandah, to a 5,500 sq </p><p>ft five-bedroom family-style villa sitting on the edge of a private </p><p>stretch of beach, surrounded by lush gardens and unspoiled views of the famous Negril sunset. </p><p>All villas are equipped with entertainment centres and include hand-crafted Jamaican cedar wood furnishings, elegant art work and breathtaking views. The villas are set back from the water, giving them a private and unique feel not found on the rest of the beach. The property sits on 4 acres of lush tropical land with plenty of room for expansion. The experience of staying in one of the Moon Dance Villas will be with you for a long time. </p><p>Moon Dance CliffsSituated on the dramatic cliffs of Negril is the home of Moon Dance </p><p>Cliffs. Completed in 2008, it features a boutique spa hotel along with </p><p>four private villas, most rooms with their own Jacuzzi. The whole </p><p>property is set in breathtaking tropical gardens, with uninterrupted sea views that capture the world-famous Negril sunsets. The private villas offer the luxury and space of your home away from home, with </p><p>all the amenities of a 5-star resort. </p><p>Midnight Cove is the largest of the villas, offering over 5000 sq ft of </p><p>pure luxury situated in a secluded corner of the resort. Ironwood is </p><p>13P l a c e s &amp; S p a c e s</p></li><li><p>a lavish vacation home for eight and the highlight is most definitely sitting out on the master balcony </p><p>with the lush sea air filling your lungs. The final </p><p>two villas offer complete privacy for the love-struck </p><p>honeymooners; both have their own verandas offering a sanctuary of luxury and comfort. The </p><p>ocean is the extension of a private garden. </p><p>Moon Dance Resorts have played host to hundreds of weddings. Offering the lucky bride and groom </p><p>a unique destination seaside wedding completely designed to their specifications in a totally private </p><p>setting. Their day is focused around the romantic gazebo on the cliffs or spent on the beach with </p><p>the ocean as the stunning backdrop for timeless memories.</p><p>This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase an excellent property that is fantastically finished </p><p>with even more possibilities for expansion.</p><p>CENTURY 21 Heave-Ho Properties is pleased to offer </p><p>both resorts for sale.

Hers is a heavy </p><p>case load and her days are quite lengthy with lots of meetings, but while the demands on her time may be many, Sinclair juggles her time as a realtor, Justice of the Peace and PAJ President with practiced ease as she has long mastered the art of multitasking. </p><p>As Managing Director of Property Solutions Limited, her days are indeed very busy but Places &amp; Spaces </p><p>caught up with the real estate broker recently and had a chat about her term in office and how the industry </p><p>can work to help itself as well as those it serves.</p><p>P&amp;S: Tell us about the Realtors Association of Jamaica.</p><p>CS: The Realtors Association of Jamaica (RAJ) is a professional body. We are an affiliate to the National </p><p>Association of Realtors (NAR) which is an international body. Realtor is a brand but not all practitioners who sell real estate can call themselves a realtor. We stand by a code of ethics that is used by over 1.5 million people worldwide and we are one of 80 international country members.</p><p>P&amp;S: How long have you been president and what do you think you bring to the position? </p><p>CS: The RAJ has election of officers annually and </p><p>I was elected last September. To know whether I have brought anything significant to the table since </p><p>becoming president, you first have to know about me. I </p><p>have been in the business in excess of 25 years. I have an MBA; have also worked as a technical assistant to former Prime Minister Bruce Golding and have served </p><p>on many government boards, so I brought all of that experience to the RAJ.</p><p>Part of my mission is to continue to educate our members so that they can offer quality customer </p><p>service that is on par with any provided internationally.</p></li><li><p>Recently the anti-money laundering regulation came into play. The Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) that covers financial </p><p>transactions by non-financial businesses and professionals will </p><p>became effective on April 1, 2014. We are now compelled by law </p><p>to operate within certain parameters as it relates to business. We have to be compliant and screen our clients and operate in a manner that is totally ethical as this has been an issue in the past because of the nature of our business. </p><p>P&amp;S: how has the RAJ been working with government agencies to...</p></li></ul>
