Welcome to my Hummingbird Hill villa
in Oracabessa, Jamaica.
Famed Canadian architect David Taylor had a vision…to build a spectacular villa on Jamaica’s north coast high atop a hill the locals call “the John Crows Nest”. Perched 1000 feet above the sea overlooking Oracabessa Bay St Mary, the house boasts infinite views and confirms David’s reputation as one of the most creative, innovative designers in the world.
Completed in 1968. the house was christened Hummingbird Hill. Offering a 360 degree vista of both the Caribbean Sea and the Blue Mountains , this unique 3 bedroom villa is paradise found. The house is built vertically so that each floor has its own bedroom and bathroom.
Hummingbird Hill has a very open feel to it with accordion doors that open onto the deck and pool as well as floor to ceiling windows on both sides of the living room.
Two gazeboes offer a place to rest and shelter from the sun. There are several hammocks that provide a perfect way to catch the ocean breeze. A Jamaican vacation at Hummingbird Hill is a commitment to peace and relaxation. You will be pampered and spoiled….and you will leave with a love for this wonderful country that will stay with you forever.
There is satellite T.V., stereo, extensive CD and book libraries, solar hot water (with small electric tank in case of bad weather) and an authentic Jamaican jerk pan. The kitchen is open and very well equipped.
Our villa is about one and a half hours drive from the Montego Bay airport. The town of Oracabessa is five minutes away with a market and local grocery. There is a beautifully secluded beach in at the foot of the hill. Other beaches nearby include James Bond Beach and Reggae Beach. Snorkeling off the reef at Moxons is but a ten minute drive. Ocho Rios, with full banking and shopping services is 20 minutes away.
A vacation at Hummingbird Hill is a chance to experience the real Jamaica.
Paradise never seemed so real.
