Stay in a 230 year old Great House, the center of the former Knutsford Estate. It is majestically located on top of hill, great view. The sunset is fabulous. It's on the road to Nine Mile, where Bob Marley was born. The Great House is a beautiful and impressive building, with thick walls, big rooms and wide verandas. Two big bedrooms with double bed and adjacent bath room. You can prepare your own meals in the kitchen. There is also a kitchen with wood fire and oven in the other house; we can ask local cooks to prepare a typical Jamaican lunch or dinner for you. There is a pool, and various shady terraces. It's a family home; don't expect resort-type luxury. At this time we are still working on the hot water system which is to be solar based, just like the electrical power system. It is a great place to relax, away from the heat and the noise of the coast. The climate up this hill is much cooler than in the coastal strip.
Colonial style house, 2 bed rooms, shady veranda's, pool, great views
