My husband, three teenage kids and I stayed here over Christmas. One of the most interesting vacations ever! So nice to not be at a resort and be able to experience a bit of life with the locals. We were still able to enjoy the beach at Negril so it was really best of both worlds. The rental property is on top of a hill next to the home of Marvia and Jocko and their 2 young children who you can't help but fall in love with. :)
My favorite thing about staying here was waking up in the morning and having a wonderful cup of coffee while sitting on the front porch feeling the warm sun and taking in all of the sounds. Chickens, goats, horse, dogs all roam around the property. You could often hear a radio playing from a neighbor across the valley or the sounds of someone out working. It was wonderful. Marvia is a gracious host and was brilliant about all of the local floral and fauna. We were able to sample many of the local flavors, right from their property. Fresh coconut right of the tree, gungo beans, turmeric, breadfruit and the best bananas ever. We were there for Boxing Day and they had a party, so that was a unique experience too.
The accommodations are rustic but we embraced it and had a great time. Not only did we have a nice time enjoying the warmth and sun but we made new friends! :)
