Celebrity Frequented Fortress with Private Beachfront
Originally a 17th century fortress, this Ocho Rios beachfront property has hosted Sir Winston Churchill, Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and Drew Barrymore, to name a few. The home�s original, two-foot-thick stone walls, along with their gun ports, have been retained, while the interior has been fully renovated to provide contemporary comfort and style.

The home has Wi-Fi...
