Norse Hill

Nestled in the beautiful parish of Portland on 8 acres of lush botanical gardens, sits the magnificent hilltop villa, NORSE HILL VILLA, overlooking San San Bay and just 15 minutes away from the historic town of Port Antonio . Many of the plants on this amazing property had been shipped from all over the world and strategically planted. This 1960s architecture was built by a Norwegian shipping magnate and his wife, as an escape to comfort, tranquility and spacious living. Radar and Iris lived in Hong Kong, India and France but finally found the perfect spot here in San San to build their dream home.

Norse Hill boasts luxurious accommodations, extraordinary Asian and European furnishings, unspoiled natural beauty and serenity at its best in an area that is arguably the most beautiful part of Jamaica.

This spectacular 4 bedroom 20th century home is constructed of beautifully cut stones, wood and glass, with oversized living and dining rooms.Inside the villa features elegantly designed wrought iron, high ceilings, a spiral staircase with a beautiful fish pond below. The cut stone design is the signature of the architect who built Frenchmans Cove Hotel.Three expansive bedrooms, located on the second floor, feature dressing rooms with en-suite baths and private balconies with fantastic views of the pool, white water seas,majestic mountains and exotic gardens. The 4th bedroom on the ground floor includes two queen beds with an additional sleeping loft and en-suite shower. All bedrooms are airconditioned with additional ceiling fans for your comfort, although this hilltop retreat enjoys a constant breeze, making it cool year round.The living and dining rooms open onto, neatly, manicured lawns, exotic flower beds,the swimming pool, secret pathways and trails leading down to the woods and turtle pond.

The hammock and the property’s icon “Tree of Life”( a combined ficus and fig), create a romantic spot for relaxing, or exchanging wedding vows near the heart shaped pond and the prized “Jade Arbour’s” breathtaking view of the Caribbean Sea.Our friendly staff stays on property and is always on hand to take care of your every needs and to make your vacation most enjoyable and memorable.
