  • An historic great house that used to be the residence of the Barrett family. A must do for amateurs and expert of arts, architecture and history.
  • We had first went to Rose Hall for our first stop but it doesn't compare to what you see at the Greenwood Great House. We had young and extremely informative guide named Tamika. She seemed to really enjoy what she was doing and had all kinds of interesting information about the artifacts in the house. There are so many antiques and priceless artifacts to see in the house. There was also an incredible view of Jamaica from the Terrace balcony which had a 180 degree view down from the mountain to the water. I highly recommend going here and checking it out. We came to Jamaica on Carnival Magic. If you would like a private tour of Jamaica we used "Patrice Bailey Tours". Our driver for the my wife and I was Trevor and he was really good. ---- Find a way to get to the Greenwood Great House it is definitely worth while. My wife and I loved it. (We were there on December 10, 2015)
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Greenwood Great House. The house is in excellent shape. The furniture and artifacts are more comprehensive then found in most museums. Wonderful Edwardian and Victorian furniture and personal items as well as a eclectic collection of mechanical musical instruments. The owners are very warm and laid back. Talkative, but not in a nosy way. Our guide was very knowledgeable and also very warm and easy going. The grounds were beautifully kept and the view from their veranda of the Caribbean is breathtaking!
  • Most breathtaking view of Falmouth town, the owner/operator very knowledgeable & the house has a very extensive authentic books, furniture, ceramic, glass & metal ware, clocks, complete bedroom sets among others....most enlightening, delightful tour ever. Only jd$500
  • My experience there is amazing and I would encourage others to seek more in the history of the barrett's homes.
