Kanopi House was conceived and designed by native Jamaicans, the family’s inherent feel for tropical design and lifestyle makes for unique and luxurious havens. Bringing their signature approach to island living combined with a laid-back atmosphere and gourmet cuisine they thoughtfully designed Kanopi House as an environmentally friendly hideaway. A tropical jungle of vine-drenched, 100-foot Banyan trees; soaring chartreuse bamboo and flowering magenta ginger lily descending into a secluded, white sand cove. Set in Portland, one of Jamaica’s most luscious parishes; this private, six-acre retreat is found just outside charming Port Antonio, the seaside town that anchors the ‘Jamaican Riviera’. A tropical paradise of crystal waters, postcard beaches, lagoons and verdant greenery. Jamaica’s North East coast has, for decades, been home to the island’s beau monde while drawing the more sophisticated, international traveler. A private shoreline that wraps around a blue lagoon, ringed by an untouched corral reef; purple manta rays gliding through clouds of colorful fish in a warm turquoise sea, glazed in a layer of cool from the mountain stream that flows into, and over, it. Where an elegant, earth conscious oasis of chic-ly appointed, ‘tree houses’ is linked by a winding pathway sliced through a sun dappled rainforest overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Eco-friendly, low impact, organic, green and NEPA approved: Kanopi House treads gently upon the earth. The property’s limited ‘footprint’ rendered in a ‘grey water’ system, processed along a lined reed bed, and the use of sustainable, regionally sourced hardwoods. Furnishings, designed and handcrafted by area artisans, are produced from renewable Jamaican materials: windows cased in cedar shutters, floors laid in Spanish Elm and Sweet Wood, stone quarried locally. Caring for the environment as well as the community, Kanopi House artwork and décor accents are designed and sourced locally. From laundry hampers and wastebaskets woven from Jamaican banana leaf, to tableware, linens, planters and lampshades - each piece is handcrafted by the island’s skilled tradesmen and produced in the traditional island manner. No trees were felled in the layout of Kanopi House; buildings were adjusted to accommodate the natural landscape; in some cases, trees simply go through the roof. A Guango tree a neighbor had chopped down and was poised to burn, refashioned as a series of organic, rough-hewn dining and coffee tables.
