Why Nikki chose Montego Bay
The Wharf House has been in my family for several generations. For much of that time, it was one of my family’s homes in Jamaica…a place where we lived, and laughed, and enjoyed seeing our sons and daughters, grand-sons and grand-daughters & nieces and nephews play in the gardens, swim in the sea & the pool, and - quite generally (and far too quickly) - grow into adulthood. But The Wharf House - at various times during my family’s ownership - has also been: a famous restaurant, operated as “Norma’s on the Wharf” by renowned Jamaican chef Norma Shirley; a luxury villa, available for short-term vacation rental; and a long-term rental property for some of our Jamaican friends and acquaintances. Today, The Wharf House has been re-conceived as an intimate B&B property…a home away from home…your home in our home. We - Nicky & my husband Stefan - live on property. Not all the time, but as much & as often as we can. If we are not on property during your stay, our lovely staff will be delighted to look after you. The Wharf House is - believe us - a truly magical place, and we look forward to sharing our home with you. Nicky & Stefan

The Wharf House was magical
We just returned from a week long stay at the Wharf House. It was a magical time. The kids and adults played on the kayak and paddle board out on the bay every morning. The nature was so gorgeous from the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, to the starfish and other creatures around the cove. We loved being able to play on the beach one minute and swim in the pool another. The kids also enjoyed hours of ping pong in the evenings.
The furnishings were old colonial and beautiful. The beds were so comfortable. The accommodations were perfect.
And last but certainly not least was the awesome staff at the Wharf House. Nicky and Stephan touched base with us prior to coming to help answer all our questions. The cook, Pinky, had delicious salt fish fritters waiting for us when we arrived and the food the trip was wonderful. She worked with on a delicious menu. Britannia and Elisha were so sweet and helpful. Every night they turned down beds and everyday they helped me pick up after my messy teens. Leroy was a great friend to my boys and helped them the kayak and outdoor items. And Russell also kept a close watch on the estate in the evenings. Stephan stopped by and graced us with his fun company as he checked on our stay, took our grocery and bar orders, and helped us to arrange some of our many excursions. Verol the driver made us feel very safe and recommended great places to go. Mayfield Falls is a must!! The owners and staff all felt like family after our stay.
The Wharf House was magical. So much so that our eldest son proprosed to his future wife on the deck over the water. As soon as Stephan heard about the proposal, he showed up with a couple bottles of bubbly for us to celebrate with. We all made life time memories and hope to go back soon!!!

The Wharf House Exceeded Our Expectations!
What a truly wonderful experience! The Wharf House is a magical serene spot.
This quietly elegant home boasts beautiful and comfortable interiors. Vintage and authentic, feels like Ralph Lauren with a touch of John Robshaw.
From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome, cared for, loved and safe.
The staff's attention to detail from the delicious morning coffee; Miss Pinkey's heartfelt delicious food, the cleanliness of the house and the care of the grounds were so noticed and appreciated.
Finally, Nikki and Stephan are gracious hosts and were so helpful with arrangements for a delightful driver and suggestions for fun Jamaican adventures.
A truly memorable vacation, we feel lucky and grateful .

By far the best vacation of my life! Hyperbole? Perhaps, but it can’t be overstated; truly awesome!
We loved every aspect of our vacation at the Wharf house. We split a week’s rental with three other couples and paid for Wharf’s wonderful cook, Pinky, to provide all of our meals. It was amazing! Great food, dining on the wharf with friends, snorkeling and swimming right off the dock, and just chilling. We will never go to another all-inclusive tourist trap again. Why would we, when we could instead eat authentic Jmaician food and nourish our souls in our own private paradise?
The host, Stefan, went well above and beyond in order to make sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.
One of the best parts of staying at the Wharf House is that you can see the wonderful jobs that Stefan and Nikki have created and the way tha their employees are treated like family.
We already miss our Jamaican friends, and are planning our return trip!
Best of the Best
Words and pictures cannot capture the beauty of this place. Waking up to amazing sea views, enjoying a bountiful breakfast on our expansive dock, kayaking on the peaceful bay, exploring the expansive property, the list goes on and on. The hosts and staff could not have been more welcoming and attentive. Pinky's food was delicious. Verol, the driver, was easy to work with and always ready to haul our 9-person crew. There is only one way for us to visit Jamaica now, and this is it. We are totally spoiled.
It was lovely to have you all. You now have a Jamaican family. We look forward to seeing you all again. Love
All of us at the Wharf House.
Rest, Relax, Enjoy - a fabulous family retreat
Words can't begin to describe what a wonderful place the Wharf House is. The waterfront location offers stunning views of MB in the day as well as the night. The grounds are extremely well maintained by a most friendly staff and if you choose to,and you should, hire their cook Miss Pinky, you will not be dissapointed. The owners Stefan and Nikki were very welcoming to our family and took great care to make sure we had a wonderful time in Jamaica.
We played many games of ping pong, utilized their two SUP's and double kayak to venture out to the nearby reef for some great snorkeling. We visited Negril, the luminous lagoon, a dog sanctuary, went ziplining as well as toured Appleton Estates but the best part of our day was coming back to the wharf house for wonderful family time, lots of reading and card playing and great Jamaican cooking. We miss it already!
Thank You Stefan and Nikki for sharing your very special place with us.
Great getaway for our family
We are two families who visited over Thanksgiving week.... children ages 10, 14, 15 and 17. The set up of the Wharf House was perfect. It was convenient to the Montego Bay airport, but not in the middle of everything. It is a truly beautiful property, from the decor of the rooms to the views over the water. We enjoyed the two paddles boards and one two-man kayak provided. Snorkeling gear is also provided. There was a beautiful spotted eagle ray that visited us every night. Ping pong and croquet were a bonus that we all enjoyed. The staff was friendly and helpful. We hired Miss Pinky to cook our meals which I would definitely do again. Wharf House also recommended two drivers who were very reliable. We took a day trip to Negril and also visited a dog sanctuary, recommended by the owners of Wharf House. We felt very safe in this area and due to the isolation of the property, there is no foot traffic to worry about. Yes, we would love to visit the Wharf House again.
