The SpaceThis rural retreat has two double bedrooms, and can comfortably sleep a family of four. We can provide an extra bed to sleep 5. It also makes an ideal haven for one or two people. The living space is all on the wrap-around verandah, with its gorgeous sunset views, where there are comfortable chairs and sofas, hammocks, and a dining table. There is a shower-room and a well-equipped kitchen. The caretaker lives on site and can help with cooking if required. Guest AccessGuests have full access to this gorgeous property, picking fruits and swinging under the giant guango tree. The property was formerly occupied by a larger house, sadly burned to the ground in 2005. This guest house was the guest wing when the house was occupied by its English owner, who still visits from time to time. There is a school on the property and curious guests are welcome to pop in to the office to say hallo, although obviously the work of the school must be respected. The pool is for the use of guests except on Tuesdays and Thursdays, when it is used by the schoolchildren. Interaction with GuestsWe like to ensure our guests are comfortable. They are introduced to all employees. The manager, Hilary, visits and makes sure that guests are happy. Cassandra, the housekeeper and caretaker, is always around and available to cook for you upon request. The NeighborhoodThis is a rural location, and gives access to the kind of Jamaica many tourists miss, although it is a short 20 minute drive to the famous 7-mile beach at Negril, and there is a smaller beach just 5 minutes away. From the verandah, you have wonderful sunset views over Green Island Bay. Green Island itself is not a tourist destination, but it has a couple of supermarkets and some excellent jerk chicken! Getting AroundTransportation can be arranged at an additional charge from the airport. Some guest choose to rent a car; there is plenty of space for parking. We are one hour from Montego Bay, and twenty minutes from Negril and its famous seven-mile beach. Other Things to NoteThere is a private primary school at the bottom of the hill on which the property stands. The pupils do use the swimming pool from 8.30 to 1pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is one of the reasons for our low accommodation cost. These days can be used for guests to do their touring or shopping if they so desire, but many enjoy meeting the children and their teachers.

You can feel safe and secure in her care. She will escort you to the less expensive shops and stores as well as secluded and remote areas, if you wish, for a modest fee. If you like the beach, this is the way to go: the white sands of Negril, the sunsets, the nighttime activities are at your disposal! You do not have to deal with the hassle of tourist hotels, with a myriad of rules and regulations. If you wish, you can relax on the beach every day and spend the entire time frequenting the local bars and restaurants. Every hotel on the beach has a bar and a beach area that are open to the public and most have amenities that you can enjoy (such as hammocks, a pool, and beach chairs) while you patronize their establishment. If you like the cliffs, you can spend all day snorkeling off the rocks at any number of bars and restaurants that overlook the sea. You can ride there by auto or take a trip on a glass bottom boat around the beach to the cliffs. You can see the famous cliffs from the boat, snorkel on the reefs, swim to the cliffs (and dive, if you are brave!). There are many glass bottom boats available in Negril to snorkel on the reefs or for lunch on a nearby island, where you can feast on lobster, fish and chicken (drink included). You can go deep sea fishing or river fishing, if this is your pleasure. You can cool off and go river swimming (fresh water) by the waterfall. It is an easy hike through the lush green countryside. If you are an explorer, then this is the vacation you want. You can hike at Roaring River and the Mayfield Falls or take a day trip to the bird sanctuary and enjoy the natural landscape at your own pace.
