Built in late 1970’s, Serendipity represents the classical architecture of its era, with original Terrazzo floors and classic iron work. Private and spacious, it offers the perfect intimate getaway as well as a fabulous family vacation. Serendipity is off the beaten-path and sits in front of one of Jamaica’s national treasures, Turtle Bay. Named for the turtle-shaped monolith that rises from the water you can enjoy the picturesque rocks that crop up from the sea. Once here you can enjoy the sunrise view that crowns Turtle Bay every morning from our verandas. For more info on turtle bay search “Turtle Bay Portland Jamaica” online.
Located near the small fishing community of Machioneal, you will be able to see the clouds kissing the tops of the famous John Crow Mountains from our front verandas off the upstairs bedrooms. For the nature enthusiast the ocean offers a wealth of natural treasures. The beach offers a coral reef that is great for snorkeling. You can take a stroll on the beach and collect sea shells and sea glass, or take pictures of the natural formations of the rocks and colors of the sea. A photographer’s dream! From the back verandas you have a clear view of the ocean where you can feel and smell the fresh ocean breeze and sleep to the sound of the waves. Spend the afternoon relaxing on one of the many double hammocks on the property and watch the moon rise at night over the ocean.

Portland, and our town Grange Hill, is located on Jamaica's northeast coast and is one of the rural areas of Jamaica. It is a nature enthusiast’s dream. Portland extends from the highest peaks of the Blue Mountains, down to the north coast, and is noted for its fertile soil, beautiful scenery, and fine beaches. The Blue Mountain ridge to its south traps the moisture causing the parish to have the highest rainfall in the island. It is noted for fine beaches, such as Frenchman's Cove, Boston Beach, Winifred, Turtle Bay, and Dragon Bay. It is also known for the world-famous Blue Lagoon, which is believed to be the crater of an extinct volcano. The lagoon is an almost landlocked cove with approximately 55m (180 ft.) of water.
Rafting on the Rio Grande is also a tourist attraction. Boston Bay in Portland is an area well known for its famous "jerked" foods, including chicken, fish and pork. It is a fun spot where locals surf and skateboard. We can coordinate your travel for day trips to these or any other destination and attractions on the island.
Serendipity is a 2.5 hour drive from Kingston Airport; we can arrange transport for you and your party to and from the airport. If you are comfortable with driving on the island you can also rent a car, we will be happy to provide you with driving directions that will take you directly to our doors. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway or a night on the town, Port Antonio is a great destination. The capital town of Port Antonio hosts music concerts, culinary festivals, farmers markets, souvenir shops and sound system dance parties.

We are excited to share our lovely island beach getaway with you and your family. Delroy has Jamaican roots and we currently live in the US but visit as often as possible. We are both working in healthcare and have found that the experience of being at Serendipity is relaxing, rejuvenating, adventurous and overall an opportunity to have a perfect zen vacation experience.
We would love to welcome you to our home away from home!
