we've stayed here three times, and each time we relax even more. if you are looking for an all inclusive resort, try sandals. if you are looking for a small fishing village on the coast of jamaica, come here. mary and esau helped us by finding us a cook, and a driver for sightseeing. we had a ball.

“This is what I hoped Jamaica would be.”

When we arrived we went through the gate and were first impressed about how homey this place felt. There were a couple of cottages in the back yard, both right up against the water. The one we stayed in was kind of like an infinity pool -- no matter where you sat in there, you look out toward the sea and that's all you can see. After a long and perfect afternoon nap, we cooked up some lobsters and rice in the modest but completely functional kitchen and downed them with some Red Stripe.

The cottages share a small private beach which opens up to the Caribbean. While much of the southern coast is ravaged by riptides and strong currents, this beach is so tranquil at times that you can't even hear waves splashing. The sea can be like glass, and it's all yours here. There's also amazing snorkeling right out on the reef about a quarter-km away.

Not long after arrival, it became clear to us that the crew here was like a team of concierges who would make sure that we had whatever we needed. During a nice visit and chat session, Lagga sold us on the local snapper he said he'd get in the morning and offered to cook our supper the following night. He cooked it up and there was only one other time that I had snapper that good -- the NEXT time he cooked it for us -- complete with rice and peas, bammies and calaloo in the local style.

If you like being secluded and just need a place to kick back, you really don't even need to leave. All of the comforts of home are here and what's not there will be brought to you for an extremely modest fee if you like. If you prefer to get out and see more of Jamaica nearby, there are restaurants, beaches, natural attractions like the Black River and mountain excursions, and every practical place you could possibly need within a reasonably close distance: grocery store, pharmacy, etc. If you have a car, you can park it safely here. If not, taxis are abundant and there's quite a bit to do within walking distance.

Before I close with my most heartfelt recommendation for these cottages, I want to note that while we were pampered and never wanted for anything here and felt completely confident that the hosts and their crew would make anything right, this is NOT for people who want the experience of an air conditioned all-inclusive resort. It's not designed by a corporate marketing team. There's no satellite TV and the nearest Margaritaville is in the MoBay airport. It will feel like a home. It will feel Jamaican and you WILL succumb to its wonderfulness.

This is a place for people who just want a taste of how hospitable, comfortable, tranquil and irie Jamaica can really be. Before we left, we were already asking ourselves when we can next come back to this place which made me completely love Jamaica.
