The timeless view of the sunrise over the Blue Mountains never gets old.

I wanted to share some photos from last year of one of my favorite vacation villas in Jamaica, Reggae Legends Villa (RLV)!

Nestled atop Jack’s Hill overlooking Kingston Jamaica is the exquisite Reggae Legends Villa. When I say the air is different up here, it is something you must truly experience for yourself.

Having found this villa on AirBnB, I quickly learned why they have a perfect 5 star rating and the “Superhost” status. Communication from Alicia, Andrew, and Marc was always flowing. From booking to arrival you are well taken care of.

There are technically two houses and both can be rented separately or together to allow maximum flexibility and opportunities for guests.

There is Marley history attached to RLV, past and present, and you are less than 100 yards from the legendary Kingston Dub Club. You’ll quickly find out why the nickname “Reggae Mountain” has been coined.


As you walk up to the front door, you enjoy the majestic view of Kingston and the Caribbean Sea.

The service that you receive from Marc and the staff is world class. Some of the All Inclusive resorts need to come here for a training class in how to exceed guests expectations.

There are a LOT of repeat bookings, not just annually, but several times a year, myself being guilty. I could not imagine staying anywhere else when visiting Kingston.


Able to accommodate formal dinners, training, and meetings, RLV is a great retreat destination.

Leighton DaCosta

Hello, I'm Leighton and I help people around the world tell their story. Let me introduce myself. Whether it's for online dating, or a professional profile, it always seems that the "About Me" section is always the hardest to write. Not because you have nothing to say about yourself, but because you want to be sincere, genuine, interesting, and brief all at the same time. I have never been a fan of writing about me in the third person, like: "Leighton DaCosta, was born in Kingston, Jamaica, and moved to Brooklyn, NY at an early age when his parents wanted to form a new life for themselves and their children. In the third grade, the family moved to Orlando, Fl, where Leighton considers his home town. After spending 3 tours in the Navy, he settled in Jacksonville, and now Miramar, Florida, where he now calls home. Today, still wanted by many, he does work as a fashion and wedding photographer. If you have a wedding(or photo shoot)... if no one else can help... and if you can find him... maybe you can hire... ok.. this is not The A- Team." But you see what I mean? What do you know about me? How can we connect? Did you know that my FAVORITE food is Pizza and Sushi? Or that my favorite color is Purple? When I go to the wine bars, I usually order Mimosas, because even the cheapest champagne tastes great with some good ole OJ. When I travel, I like staying in nice hotels. Not because of the name, (even though I AM partial to Hyatt) but because of the bathrooms. One of my favorite hotels is the Viking in Newport, Rhode Island. Small rooms, but AWESOME bathrooms. I LOVE TO EAT, and eating as much as I have, has led me to be about 100 pounds more than I was in High School... Yeah there is some muscle there, but if it was all muscle, I'm sorry folks, I wouldn't be taking photos, I would be retiring from the NFL. If you want to see some of my favorite dishes, follow me on Instagram. Because of that, I find myself now in the gym more than ever. Trying to stay fit and alive... I workout, so I can EAT! Well that's enough for now, if you want to know more about me, follow my blog. Better yet, I want to find out more about YOU. So let's talk!
