Nearby are other vacation homes, built Venice-like into the sea. Swim, snorkel or kayak ten minutes around the gazebo on your left, and you will find yourself on Princess Nina's island; ten minutes in the other direction will take you into the Blue Lagoon (see the Outings page for more information); a ten-minute walk will take you up to Goblin Hill, our sister property, with its acres of lawns, innumerable birds, flowers, tennis courts, swimming pool, bar manned by charismatic mixologist Calvin, and Hummingbird Terrace where you can observe the hovering of mango hummingbirds as well as the spectacular indigenous, streamer-tailed Doctor Bird, the national bird and all-around symbol of Jamaica. Please go up for our Rum Punch Party from 5:30pm to 6:30pm on Saturdays, for the eponymous elixer; the best soft drink in the world, Ting; and our famed coconut chips.
The lush lawns at Goblin Hill make you want to kick off your shoes and feel the thick grass under your feet. The Almond Tree Overlook gives a picture perfect view of Princess Nina's island, and has been the site of many beautiful weddings. It provides a peaceful spot for lazing in a hammock or reading in planter's chairs overlooking San San Bay.
For birdwatchers, Goblin Hill's eleven and a half acres are home to 22 species of indigenous birds, and many other migratory species.
