We were welcomed to the Brown Shuggah well before we even arrived. Anna had coordinated and ordered food for us so that we would be welcomed with some wonderful Jamaican food. When we entered the property we were amazed. Coming from Chicago, we were excited for the 80 degree weather, and every room in this house opened up to the outside, allowing us to take advantage of the sunshine! The house is laid out perfectly, the home is open, bright, and very clean! The rooms are large with high ceilings and King Beds in every room. Each room has its own private bathroom. The details in each bathroom are fantastic and make it feel like a spa. The views from this house are INCREDIBLE! We have 4 young boys and were very happy there was a private back yard with a gate. This gave us comfort to let the boys roam the yard without the worry of them going up to the ocean without us. The private cove in the back is awesome, the boys loved having their own private beach. Our absolute favorite was the Chukka Cove. The water is crystal clear and made for some excellent swimming.
As much as we would recommend the property for its amazing views, privacy, or comfortable living. Our favorite part of this experience were the people themselves. The Melville's went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. We never imagined such hospitality. Ms Evadney (housekeeper) and Jem (Cook) instantly became part of the family. We loved their stories about growing up in Jamaica and their love of the island. Our boys loved these ladies! We played with them, sang with them and they made us food! Who wouldn't love them? One Night, Jem gave us a cooking lesson so we could take some of the tastes of Jamaica back home! Ulroy (facilities) was always out and about with a smile on his face. The boys loved going out on the swings in the morning to say hi to Ulroy. We also loved walking the beach in the mornings with the dogs (Bojangles was the family favorite). We are so grateful that we got to meet these people and enjoy such a fantastic vacation! Thank you Daniel and Anna!
We wish this could be our secret get-a-way, but this place is too good not to share… We highly Recommend this property for your next vacation.
