Stop/Start sounds from our treetops, click here:

blowing through the shutters and open doors of this hilltop paradise.

My first visit was in 1984 and my most recent was in 2006, with a dozen or so stops in between. Hummingbird Hill is truly my second home. The staff are like family to me. Settling in is no more complicated than kicking off my shoes and opening an ice cold Red Stripe!

I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to visit and fall in love with all parts of the island, the people, the food, the sights and sounds; from Ocho Rios to Kingston, from Port Antonio to Negril, and so many places in between. Still, coming home to Hummingbird Hill is what it is all about.

My most recent trip was with my two boys (ages 7 and 10) who were visiting Jamaica for the first time. I now get to relive the discovery of this paradise once again through their eyes. By their own account, they still consider this “as the coolest place ever”! Smart kids… how could I possibly argue with them?

If this is what paradise is all about, who needs Heaven? »

  • My first sighting of Hummingbird Hill was around 1980. Paradise! Would have a hard time counting how often I've returned...Well over 30! Standing on the balcony next to the beautiful pool you feel like you're '"King of the World". At night the sounds of near-by Jacks' River waft up the mountain; If you are lucky on a Saturday night you'll hear reggae parties and Sunday morning, the church bells calling the locals.


  • My computer screen is a picture of Hummingbird Hill TEN REASONS WHY... 10) You get all the basic facilities you need (telephone, satellite tv, great kitchen, showers in all three bedrooms, amazing pool) and still feel like you’re at a friend’s house, not a “rental”.

  • My husband, two sons, and I spent 7 glorious days at Hummingbird Hill last summer. Middle room, with king size bed. Master bedroom, king size bed. Master bedroom, king size bed.   We totally bonded as a family in the cozy hilltop house. The pool was like therapy for us and we spent many hours just lazing around and soaking up the environment.


  • Hummingbird Hill is a peaceful and beautiful retreat where the "charm" of the Caribbean is still evident. It is easy to make this place a home away from home.
