Good Hope Coach House is 40 minutes from the Sangster Intl Airport in Montego Bay. From the historic seaport town of Falmouth, the villa is 5 miles into the island’s interior, bordering the magical Cockpit Country region.
Falmouth & Cockpit Country
Cockpit Country is the natural habitat for most of the island’s endemic flora and fauna. The landscape is dramatic with its green conical shaped hills, valleys, caves, and rivers.
There are magical country roads that border Cockpit Country, carrying you through traditional rural villages, with names like Unity, Sherwood Content and Friendship, which typify a way of Jamaica country living. This is where Maroon history feels most vivid. The Maroons were slaves who escaped to the Cockpit, set up their own communities and fought for freedom.
Falmouth can boast the largest and most concentrated collection of Georgian Architecture in the Caribbean. It is also the Caribbean’s newest Cruise Ship destination.
