Hanover House

About Hanover House, Jamaica

If you're not looking for the bells and whistles of modern Caribbean architecture, Hanover House is right for you. Its high ceilings and small treasures from another century evoke the former grandeur and elegance of a dignified past Jamaican lifestyle. When I've had enough of glass block, stainless steel and lucite, this is where I want to be for a week or more every year to remind me of the more traditional Jamaica I came to love. I appreciate its polished brass hardware from England, its massive master bedroom with balconies on three side, its crooked old chandeliers and its oh-so-genuine longtime staff. Gazing over its picture postcard views recharges my soul and reminds me why I love Jamaica.

A sweeping staircase brings guests up through the three-story entrance foyer to the salmon-hued soft brick pool terrace ... a 1,500-square-foot outdoor living space around the 40' x 40' private pool, picturesquely framed in white stone arches. The adjacent large living room has satellite television and opens to more terraces and views. Four shaded sitting areas, poolside chaises, and two dining tables seat 15 guests. The breakfast table overlooks a 500-acre coconut plantation. One evening, let the kids eat early. Then linger over a long candlelight adult dinner till the stars come out. Then, with drink in hand, move to the master suite balcony for the light show of a lifetime. (Some guests have chosen to sleep on the balcony rather than leave the mesmerizing view.)

No words can adequately describe the many views from Hanover House ... truly breathtaking every hour of the day and night. The villa's architecture was designed to capture both glorious sunrises across the sea and unforgettable huge sunsets beyond the hills. If you rise early, look for the storybook clouds of mist wafting down over the Great River just to the east. Don't miss those precious and memorable times of day!

Interiors at Hanover House are characterized by a few priceless Empire pieces and several antique mahogany case pieces, richly restored with their original hardware and fluted bases. English botanicals adorn the walls. The large bathrooms have their original plain cabinetry and laminated countertops, but the very comfortable beds and views from each bedroom more than make up for the lack of Corian and granite. In summary, Hanover House feels like home and has a very distinctive brand of charm and spaciousness that have drawn many families back again and again.

Hanover House has become known for its beautiful and extraordinarily photogenic weddings.
