About our home

Hummingbird Hill is a lovingly tended country house owned by the same family for 45 years. It was originally the home of British actor Peter Finch, star of the classic film "Network". The 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home is on the edge of one of the most spectacular views in the Caribbean on a small (7-acre) farm that provides fresh organic fruits and vegetables for the kitchen and exchange with nearby neighbors. Friendly neighbors enjoy cooking and eating the produce we grow on week ends. The name Hummingbird Hill comes from the indigenous "Doctor Bird", or Streamer Tail Hummingbird, population that inhabits the property. A small valley of Blue Mahoe trees and extensive gardens are maintained as a bird sanctuary to ensure the natural habitat of the hummingbirds. Many other bird species of the Caribbean are to be observed on the property. A Caretaker stays on property to ensure your comfort and needs, and a cook/housekeeper can be available on a daily basis for a small additional cost. This is indeed the Garden of Eden, or as close as it comes in this most beautiful of islands. The house is ideally located 10 minutes off the main highway and major resorts, restaurants and attractions, including the famed Dunns River Falls, Mystic Mountain and Dolphin Cove. Major hotels are nearby with full beach, golfing and water sport facilities. A peaceful, beautiful and civilized bit of tropical heaven.
