Good Hope Plantation is about two thousand acres in size and is located in the parish of Trelawny, Jamaica.   This property sits in a wonderful valley, which is surrounded by the green hills of the cockpit country.  The Martha Brae River flows straight through the entire Good Hope land.  

There have only been five families since 1742 to own Good Hope. Originally a sugar plantation, in 1912 when John Tharpe became the third owner, he turned the Great House into a hotel and set about planting coconuts. In 1989, the present owner, Tony Hart started a restoration of the property and along with a few investors planted the citrus that grows there today.

A fantastic gathering place for families, retreats, and friends,- with space for togetherness, space for discovering nature, space for alone time.  

Today Good Hope is a tour destination for guests to enjoy the property with Chukka Caribbean.  The Coach House welcomes guests to immerse themselves in the history, the nature & the beauty of Jamaica.

Reviews

Thank you for arranging the transportation from Coach House to the beach. We went every day and it was a relief knowing we had reliable and helpful service. Errol was our driver. He was very pleasant, energetic, knowledgeable, and all-around great driver. I would highly recommend him to drive the Linda Smith Villa van - he was a great representative for your company.
We got an opportunity to speak with the owner of Good Hope - that was a real treat! He took us on a long tour of the property and hearing the history of the plantation was fabulous and enjoyable. Eating oranges I picked off the trees as we walked was delicious as well. This felt like a real privilege to spend time with him.
The food was very good; Ms. Barb took good care of us and we had no food allergy issues. Every meal was served buffet style . Our girls (17, 16, 15, 15) had a great time at Chukka. It was obviously very convenient. We received a discount and were able to use the ticket over several days
The beach front was absolutely spectacular. We had lunch there every day, swam out to the reef for snorkeling, and I enjoyed some fishing. The house there was nice! Having facilities next to where you are beaching is wonderful.

We had the most amazing stay at Tammy's beautiful house just before the holidays. I almost didn't write this review since I am nervous about too many other people finding out about it since we absolutely plan to return.
Our group consisted of 6 adults and 6 children (age 2 - 5). We all had a wonderful time!
House is beautiful. Pool is awesome (it's saltwater, which is so much nicer than chlorine!) AC units in bedrooms worked great. Big TV in living room and you can sign into your Netflix or Amazon account.
The private beach is amazing! Bigga (Tony) was the nicest host and there's a great building on the beach with a bathroom, lounge area, etc. We felt so spoiled!!!
But what really makes the house special is its unbelievable staff. I wish they could have come home with us! Bev is so warm and thoughtful!!! Aldane is the sweetest man and so helpful and kind - the kids loved him. Barbara is the BEST cook ever - don't miss her jerk chicken, grilled lobster tails, grilled fish, coconut rice with pigeon peas, ackee & saltfish, homemade plantain chips & salsa... basically everything she makes you will LOVE. And she was incredibly thoughtful and careful with one of the children who has a severe dairy allergy -- she always made sure he had delicious food that was safe to eat. She also satisfied our children's "unique" palates (not easy - they are the pickiest bunch of toddlers you've ever met!).
Tammy is a gracious host and patiently answered all of my endless questions leading up to the trip. She is so on top of everything!
Anyway, all of this is to say that we will absolutely be returning to the Coach House at Good Hope in the future! Do yourself a favor and stay there too :)
