Welcome to Firefly a website dedicated to the final home of Sir Noël Coward
"Firefly: winged insect emitting phosphorescent light " (Concise Oxford Dictionary)
This photograph is thought to have been taken by Cole Lesley and shows Noël Coward at 'Look Out' in the grounds of his home, Firefly, near Ocho Rios in Jamaica. Noël built the simple single-bedroomed house on the site of a pirate look out high on a hill above his initial Jamaican home, Blue Harbour. It looks out across the Spanish Main where a statue of Noël sculpted by Angela Connors still surveys the beauty of the Jamaican coast.
The sign outside Firefly and the pianos in the lounge when they were still both present.
Firefly is open to the public and has been viewed by many famous visitors and tourists who have taken the trouble to seek out Noël's last hide away.
