Noel Coward's Firefly
Today, perhaps take an optional visit to Firefly (30 minutes from Jamaica Inn), the home of Noel Coward where he painted and wrote overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
Noël Coward fell in love with Jamaica in 1948 when on holiday with Ian Fleming. He initially lived on the coast which regularly visited by his friends and celebrities. He used to entertain locals and travellers in the bar at Jamaica Inn.
Noel Coward bought the simple house (for $150) on top of the hill in 1955 as a retreat. He named it Firefly, no doubt due to the many firefly’s that come alive at sunset. The house and gardens have stunning views of the coast and is full Coward’s furniture, pictures and artefacts. Noel Coward was born in Teddington, South West London and died at Firefly in 1973, where he was buried in his beloved garden.
