Welcome to Good Hope Retreat
Over looking ocean
Good Hope Retreat is a private artists retreat now open to the public. It consists of three extraordinary hand-crafted wood, island cabin-style houses on an estate of four acres, situated majestically in the high Mountains of Westmoreland, Jamaica.
Our retreat is off-the-beaten track, amid lush vegetation, with our Jamaican hills overlooking the island's South Coast. Our sunset from this vantage point, 700 meters (2100 feet) above sea level, is an exclusive nightly spectacle of beauty. Cool evenings and warm but moderate daytime temperatures, individuals with heightened appreciations of natural wonders and phenomenon will be inspired to no end by all that is to be found and re-discovered in the rural tradition of Good Hope Retreat.
Set on a hill overlooking the village of Billy's Bay and the Caribbean Sea beyond, Mer's Perch has two bedrooms offering air conditioning and two single beds.

Watch the world go by while perched on one of the two spacious and cool verandahs or take a short stroll through the town and onto the beach.
