HONEYMOON IN SECLUDED PARADISE AT NORSE POINT

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

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).

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Port Antonio

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Wonderful villa, brilliant Verona

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a glorious week at Norse Point. Everything we needed was there, all equipment for superb snorkelling and great kayaks for exploring nearby. Port Antonio is a great place, and Norse Point a great place to explore it from. Verona was lovely and made sure we were well looked after - her food, as many have mentioned, was outstanding, it must get a bit repetitive, as everyone says it, but it really is true! We'd definitely stay again as it's such a beautiful place and great accommodation, the deck is just perfect for winding down with a book. Our recommendation is to visit Reach Falls and Winifred's beach, both great examples of the beauty of Jamaica.

Breathtaking!!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I celebrated our 20 year anniversary at Norse Point and couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting! Having Verona there to make sure everything was perfect for us took this experience right over the top! She prepared the fresh fish and lobster we caught for her each day and planned meals with me for the week. The laid back town of Port Antonio is definitely the way to go if you want to experience the true Jamaica and get away from the congestion of the resorts.
The water was the most beautiful blue I have ever seen and snorkeling was breathtaking! We saw huge seastars, sea urchins, eels, lots of colorful fish, and sea anemone. Of all the places we have traveled, I think this was the most beautiful. We did not experience any discomforts, not many insects and no security issues while we stayed there. Verona and Alex made sure everything was in order and well taken care of. I have recommended this to everyone and we are planning another trip back to Norse Point with our kids as soon as possible.

Really PERFECT.

  • 5 out of 5
Our family had the good fortune of visiting Port Antonio and staying at Norse Point for a week in April, during our children's spring break. It was the perfect vacation for us and made even more perfect by the accommodations at Norse Point. The villa is great! There are magnificent views of the water from every room. The island across from the dock was ideal as our swim, snorkel and kayak base. It was also fun to just jump in the water and snorkel right there off the dock. And, as everyone mentions, the lovely Verona took such good care of us. Having her there was amazing--what a fabulous cook and wonderful person. Making arrangements with Alex was super easy, and he was so helpful in every way as well. Flying into Kingston also was easy--and we all really enjoyed the drive through the mountains, which was spectacular. We had been to Negril a few times before, but really preferred the lush and laid back beauty of Port Antonio. Kayaking to the Blue Lagoon was a favorite activity for the kids. We really hope we are lucky enough to return one day. Thank you so much for everything. THis is really a perfect vacation spot.

Paradise!

  • 5 out of 5
We recently stayed at the Norse Point villa and were immediately overtaken with the beauty of the location, the home and the view! Upon our arrival we were greeted by the wonderful Verona who kept us well-fed and smiling all week! She took us to the market with her for groceries and ice cream as well as took us out for traditional jerk chicken and pork. Every morning began with a large platter of fresh island fruit and coffee in addition to eggs, bacon and/or pancakes. One morning she even made us the traditional Ackee breakfast, the national dish of Jamaica, which was incredible! The home was very clean, peaceful and safe. We enjoyed our days by kayaking to the Blue Lagoon, San San Bay and even Winnifred Beach (albeit this was a bit more of a trek!) as well by snorkeling in and around the island. We even used the charcoal grill that the home has on hand one day and made curry chicken! The owner was exceptionally helpful and always responded to our inquiries promptly. We would recommend this villa to anyone in a heartbeat!

As romantic and stunning as an over water bungalow in the South Pacific

  • 5 out of 5
I have stayed in several houses here in the Port Antonio area but this location is simply the BEST. Situated right on the clear turquoise water channel between the mainland and Monkey Island, this is a swimmer's paradise. It also kept my boating captain husband very happy as he literally felt like he was on a boat. The only thing lacking was the steering wheel. It's hard to want to leave the beautiful hardwood deck except to submerge onself into the warm Caribbean Sea or take the kayaks up to explore the famous Blue Hole just fifteen minutes paddle away. While at the Blue Hole, my 12 year old daughter Natalie was entertained for hours climbing up and jumping off the overhanging Almond Tree into the extrodinary aquamarine water below. This area of Jamaica is a hidden treasure and Norse Point is the best spot to experience it all. The small house is charming, filled with a rich array of colorful local paintings that excite your senses and make you want to pack them in your bags to bring home to Colorado. We also wanted to bring Verona and her warm smile back with us. Verona looked after us as if we were family. She can cook up everything you want from Jamaican specialities to American breakfast staples. She even taught my daughter to make Johnny Cakes which we hope to eat again very soon now that we are back home. Not sure that they will compare to Verona's Johnny cakes and I have a feeling that we will need to return to Norse Point in the very near future.

What a wonderful place to just get away

  • 5 out of 5
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.
