HONEYMOON IN SECLUDED PARADISE AT NORSE POINT

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday villa in Port Antonio

Villa, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Norse Point is the Ultimate Honeymoon Hideaway. It is a secluded 1-bedroom villa situated on the Waters' Edge of the most magnificent ocean bay we are aware of on the planet (San San Bay). The living room provides sleeping accommodation and a half bathroom for two additional persons in the form of two single beds that double as couches during the day.

Relax in crystal clear water and a magnificent ocean bay protected by a continuous coral reef. The famous 'Pellew Island' is untouched and is located directly opposite Norse Point and presents itself as being your private island.

Susan and Alex Dougall are Jamaicans who grew up vacationing with their families on San San Bay. Their dream to own their own San San holiday home became reality in 2008 when they were presented with the opportunity to purchase the only home on the bay that is both secluded and directly opposite the magnificent 'Pellew Island'. It was a dream come true for us and our four children. No one has been able to tell us of another ocean side spot on the planet that compares to Norse Point.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2008

We bought Norse Point because of its unique combination of features - located in the lush parish of Portand offering a backdrop of mountains, rivers and magnificent rainforest - water that is several degrees warmer than tropical holiday locations to our north - a calm bay protected by a magnificent coral reef - and its location directly opposite 'Pellew Island'. We pinch ourselves every day wondering whether it is a dream or reality that that we were fortunate enough to buy this property. We get endless pleasure from our frequent weekends at Norse Point which was our motivation to make this purchase.

We know of nowhere else that has such a beautiful untouched coral sand island, two swimming minutes away from a holiday home seaside deck, separated only by crystal clear water and protected by a magnificent coral reef.

What a wonderful place to just get away

What can I say that hasn't been already said about this wonderful place. Norse Point is truly a delight. The location is simply beautiful. The house is small but delightful. We loved opening all the doors in the morning and being able to feel the breeze and see the views. I can't say enough about Verona. Without her I don't think our stay would have been as delightful Verona is not only and excellent cook she helped us immensely with arrange travel and buying food. Shopping with her at the local market was great fun. Don't hesitate to ask her for anything, if it can be found Verona will find it.

This is not a 'tourist' place. If you are looking to be immersed in the local culture you couldn't make a better choice. There are several beautiful beaches in the area. We particularly liked Winifred Beach (Verona's recommendeation0. It's a beautiful uncrowded beach but getting to it is a challenge.

Enjoy swimming and snorkeling off the deck, take the kayaks for a trip to the Blue Lagoon or just lay in the sun and wave to the passersby.

Fly into Kingston and be prepared for the ride of your life as you go over the Blue Mountains. Driving in Jamaica is not something we would recommend. The taxis are easy to find and much safer. Verona is very helpful arranging transportation. This was without a doubt the most enjoyable vacation we have had.

Amazing Vacation Experience

Norse Point is spectacular. We travel A LOT, and I can say without hesitation that this was the best vacation we've ever had. It's on a point, so you don't see any neighbors. There is the beautiful Monkey Island within swimming distance. And Blue Lagoon, the inspiration for the movie with Brooke Shields, is minutes by kayak. Snorkelers will delight in the reef, but looking under the deck that cantilevers over the water is just as good.

Perhaps the real selling point, however, is Verona, your housekeeper and cook...I should say chef, really. She will spoil you beyond belief! Picture this: you get out of the water and she has a warm towel and cool coconut water waiting. She makes food so good that you cancel all thoughts of eating at a restaurant, and she is in possession of a magic laundry basket. Your dirty clothes mysteriously appear on the bed, cleaned and folded.

She can hook you up with anyone and anything. You want your hair braided? Done. You want fresh fish? She calls her guy and he brings fresh snapper to the dock. You are bored and want a boat tour outside the reef? A guy appears within the hour to show you around. You want to go on a day trip? Her son, Kemar, is a magnificent guy who takes you anywhere, and you will feel safe the entire time. You want to go to the market? She personally escorts you so you get a deal. She has PEOPLE.

The owner, Alex, does an excellent job of answering questions and providing all info needed ahead of your stay. He's extremely responsive and a great guy. They have two kayaks and snorkel gear, and even life jackets provided.

The house sits right on the point, below road level, but you do not hear road noise while sleeping, which is a blessing. There is a security guy, so no concerns there.

I highly recommend using taxis and not renting a car. Jamaican roads are...ummm...tricky. Only the very adventurous should attempt this. Again, we've driven all over and do not attempt Jamaica.

The house has everything you need. It's well maintained and thanks to Verona, immaculate. The bed is comfortable. We never ran out of hot water. I am not easily bowled over, but I have nary a negative comment. We stayed two weeks and I can't wait to return. Seriously, you will not want to go home. It's that good.

We plan to return next year. That is why I hesitate to share this jewel publicly...I want to have my two weeks in paradise available for 2015.

We spent one week at Norse point for our honeymoon. it was absolutely unbelievable. It was everything we were promised and more . Verona was so good to us. She really made of feel like royalty. The food was amazing and shopping with Verona for all the ingredients was so much fun!
The deck gets great sun and the snorkeling right next to it is awesome! We saw lots of eels, rays, lobster, brightly colored fish and corals, even a little octopus! We kyacked almost every day. We loved the location, san san beach to the left, the Blue Lagoon to the right, and Monkey Island with a beautiful little beach right across from us! Lots to do and explore! Perfect relaxing romantic, getaway for 2. We plan on going back for our five year anniversary! Highly recommended.

A wonderful Place in an incredible setting

I would probably give this 4.5 stars if I could, but that's not an option. This is a wonderful place and the pictures are very realistic of the villa and the surrounding area. There are no houses within shouting distance, so it feels fairly secluded. We spent much of our time snorkeling (AMAZING!) and kayaking. Having these things available with the accommodation was probably what made our decision to stay here and I am glad we did.

The Blue Lagoon is a few minutes away by kayak and we were mesmerized with it. It is a must see if you stay here.

Another reviewer commented on the road above and yes, we experienced the road noise and people talking above the villa as well. It really wasn't any problem. Several people came to the door while we were there, inquiring about rentals. It wasn't a nuisance.

And then there is Verona. She was wonderful and friendly, accommodating and a good cook. She came with us to town to help with a variety of things and it was very much appreciated. She made all our meals and made us feel welcome and at home. We enjoyed having her there.

Overall, it was a wonderful vacation in one of the most beautiful places, sitting right on the water. It is a very restful and relaxing place. Alex the owner was very accommodating and helpful beforehand. Others have mentioned Verona's delightful son Kumar and we enjoyed his company as well as appreciated his taxi service. I wish we had used him on the drive from the airport as well as the return trip.

I can highly recommend this vacation rental.

My now fiancé (got engaged on this trip) and I have spent/are currently spending four wonderful days at Norse Point having spent the previous week at Norse Hill Estate. This is truly a wonderful location. Verona, the cook/housekeeper, is fantastic. This is the best holiday we have ever had. Highly recommended! Although don't come in feb 2015 or 2016 as we want to come for our pre wedding holiday and again for our honeymoon!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words about Norse Point and our wonderful caretaker, Verona. Just to clarify for anyone reading this review, Norse Hill Estate (situated in the hills above Norse Point) is not in any way connected with Norse Point (situated directly on the water opposite "Monkey Island" and surrounded by San San Bay). Both properties were originally developed by the same Norwegian owner (hence the common word "Norse" in the name of each property). Thank you. Alex (owner of Norse Point)

Location

× This owner has not provided a specific location. If you would like more information, please contact the owner.

Swimming or kayaking to and from "Monkey Island" and up and down the crystal clear coral reef waters of San San Bay.
