What few people know today is that Ian Fleming wrote all 14 James Bond books during his two-month winter stay in Jamaica. It was in 1946 that he bought the large tract of land on the Jamaican coast where he would build a bungalow, which he named Goldeneye following a wartime operation in which he himself took part.
So this place can justifiably be said to have been one of the biggest contributors to Ian Fleming’s creative flow as a writer. You can read more about Ian Fleming and his writing habits while he was there.

Sure, the price may seem steep, but sometimes you need a change of scenery. This is evidenced by the large number of famous writers’ hotels.
