In 1494, enthralled with its green, verdant mountains, white crescent beaches and waterfalls cascading into the sea, Columbus declared it "the fairest island eyes have beheld", and the story of Jamaica's discovery has continued to the present day. In the 40's Ian Fleming and Noel Coward fell in love with the North Coast. Coward, incredibly, bought an old buccaneer's hideaway belonging to Captain Morgan, Fleming a donkey race track and 15 acres of land overlooking a spectacular little cove and reef, where he built GoldenEye. In 1946, blown into port on the back of a hurricane, Errol Flynn roared, rather unimaginatively, that the place was "more beautiful than any woman"… Today, largely unspoilt, the North Coast remains the choice for many celebrity second homes - an intoxicating mix of emerald and blue waters edged in sandy white beaches with the backdrop of a spectacularly mountainous interior.
Our villas and cottages can be found amidst this famously unbridled beauty. GoldenEye, now a superb coastal retreat and the Tryall Club at Montego Bay, have some of the most spectacular scenery in the Caribbean. Both have private villas, cottages and beaches. They all offer watersports and are fully serviced by charming local teams offering fabulous local cooking and daily housekeeping.
