“Delightful 'home from home' in totally unspoilt beach location in beautiful Portland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We spent 5 days at the Green House during our recent first visit to Jamaica and loved every minute! The owner`s summer residence, this very attractively designed single storey timber constructed house with lovely covered verandah on three sides is a perfect place for a family or friends getaway, on the edge of the small community of Hope Bay, about 15 minutes drive from Port Antonio and an hour and a half from Kingston. Comfortable, attractively furnished, spacious, breezy accommodation, with a very 'homely' feel, well equipped kitchen, good library of books (many interesting ones on Jamaica) and games, lovely enclosed garden, all a stone`s throw from a deserted beach. This is the perfect place to unwind and totally relax! Excellent swimming a few minutes walk along the beach which is perfect for long walks or beachcombing, and you may not meet a soul apart from perhaps a local fisherman - bliss!
If you need all the trappings of a 5 star luxury villa, air con, wi-fi etc.along with a white sand beach, and a variety of bars/restaurants right on your doorstep, the Green House may not suit you, but if you want a lovely, peaceful location from which to explore beautiful Portland, meet friendly locals and experience 'untouristy' Jamaica, then this is the place!
There are many wonderful white sand beaches close by including Frenchman`s Cove, Winifred Beach, and Boston Beach, and not to be missed excursions should definitely include Somerset and Reach Falls, and river rafting on the Rio Grande.
We would really love to go back to Portland and we`d definitely hope to stay at the Green House next time - just hope it won`t be fully booked!
