Fodor's Review

About 20 miles (32 km) east of Ocho Rios, Noël Coward's vacation home is now a national monument managed by Chris Blackwell's Island Outpost company. Although the setting is Eden-like, the house is surprisingly spartan. Coward decamped uphill from his original home at Blue Harbour to escape the jet-setters who came to visit. He wrote High Spirits, Quadrille, and other plays here, and his simple grave is next to a small stage where his works are occasionally performed. Recordings of Coward singing about "mad dogs and Englishmen" echo over the lawns. Tours include a walk through the house and grounds. The view from the house's hilltop perch, which was a lookout for Captain Morgan, is one of the best on the North Coast.
