Moon Author's Review
Green Castle Estate Great House (US$3,200/3,600 weekly low/high season, for up to four people, inclusive of meals, or US$3,600/4,200 low/high season for up to six with meals) is the fanciest accommodation you're likely to find between Port Maria and Port Antonio. While a weekly rental is preferred, it is also possible to rent a room at the Estate House for as little as three nights (US$260 d. nightly). For those who enjoy nature and an alternative idea of tourism but don't want to sacrifice elegant comfort and old-time Jamaican pace, there's probably no better accommodation option around. The great house has classy colonial furnishings in three spacious bedrooms with private baths, and a fourth room with two twin beds. The swimming pool overlooks gardens with a spectacular view of the coast and Blue Mountains from almost every window and veranda. You're guaranteed to see several species of hummingbird buzzing about, including the red-billed streamertail, the country's national bird. Tennis courts are well maintained. All estate tours are included with the great house rental. Opportunities for farm volunteer work and outreach in the neighboring community of Robin's Bay can be pursued with Angie.
