What a fantastic week in Jamaica! This house is absolutely adorable, well-kept, and comfortable. The location is great. When you're at the house, it feels secluded from the hustle and bustle outside the gate, with the spacious yard and private beach. When you need something, however, it helps that the market, pharmacy, ATM, etc., is a short walk away. We started every morning and ended every night out on the big porch (the mosquito "coils" came in handy). Diane (cook/housekeeper) and Milo (grounds/security) made the experience extra special. We had authentic Jamaican breakfast (big) and dinner every day that we weren't out sightseeing. It was key to bring Diane along to the markets with us, so she could pick out everything she needed: Fish, chicken, rice and peas, breadfruit, plaintains, calaloo, ackee, saltfish, mangos, papaya, Ethiopian apples... yum! She took such good care of us. Milo brought us breadfruit and ackee right from his trees at home, and was full of stories from life in Jamaica. They both looked out for us and made us feel at home. Brandon was a great host, and took us to Nine Mile, Blue Hole, and a local restaurant (Flavours) on one day, and arranged a boat ride for us on another. If he's not around personally, he will help arrange any trips you want (no problem mon!) and leave you in good hands. If we return to Ocho Rios, we'll definitely stay here again.
