          The SpaceThe Ankobra is the name of a river that flows north-south in the western part of Ghana and is also the name of a resort on that country's Gold Coast where my family and I stayed many years ago. Long story short we fell in love with the design of the huts of this resort; with the help of a local architect in Jamaica we were able to design and build our own Ankobra on land we inherited. The house has three bedrooms, three baths, a complete kitchen, large living room, a screened porch, pool and pool deck. There are huge mango and cashew trees planted in the late 1800s, a variety of local fruit trees, hard wood (lumber) trees and over two hundred coconut trees (mostly young suckers). It has been two years since we retired from being a Foreign Service family and moved here so there is ongoing work, daily, to clear fields for planting vegetables and other crops- peanuts, papaya, watermelons bananas, citrus and ornamental trees. Guest AccessExcept for the master bedroom/bath all other rooms of the house is available to guests. There are paths for those who love to run, walk. Waking up with the sun is my favorite thing to do; the air is the freshest at that time of day! Interaction with GuestsThere will be either Andy or I or both of us on hand to help make your stay as hassle free as possible! We have been global nomads for the better part of thirty years and have seen a fair bit of this vast world so depending on where you will be visiting us from we might want to share and/or compare stories; perhaps you prefer to be just left alone and we can appreciate that too! We are your basic down-to-earth couple who enjoy art, sports, cuisines, eating what we grow, current affairs, politics, farming. . . If saying Andy was at Woodstock and that both of us fell asleep in the wee hours of the morning on the grass at Reggae Sunsplash many years ago peeks your interest, well it all happened! The NeighborhoodAnkobra is unique! It is the result of our vision for our lives in retirement. It is still a work in progress but we believe that it is the ideal place for a family of four, for couples, for anyone interested in exploring the real Jamaica and for those looking for an alternative to the "all-inclusive" resort lifestyle. A beer, Guiness, can be had at one of the local bars or from our refrigerator at Ankobra. The idea of going out to dinner might not be an option unless your plan is to ride into Black River for fish or seafood but, Sheryn is an excellent cook who will be able to prepare dinner for you if you so desire. Getting AroundThere are taxis, cars for hire, rental cars and buses available to get you to where you want to go! Other Things to NoteIt needs to be said that St. Elizabeth is a rural parish! Black River, the capital, was the first to have electricity, the first motor car, and a very active natural port a few centuries ago! It is a very old town, and looks it! There are a few buildings like the Court House and a few Georgian houses from the plantation era that are privately owned and interesting to see. YS Falls sits on a large estate and is open daily to the public, Black river Safari operates boat tours up the gentle and picturesque Black River where you are sometimes invited to make your acquaintance with the crocodiles. Pelican Bar, built on a reef, by a local fisherman, near Parrotee and is accessible by boat for a small fee, provides an unusual respite and watering hole to watch the sunset while a trip to the home of Jamaica's finest rum at Appleton Estates is not to be missed. There are some special spots off the beaten path that we have discovered since our return that we would love to share with you, just ask!
