We offer two rooms with ac and free wifi . Because we care a lot about nature we have put solar panels and a solar boiler on the roof to provide electricity and hot water . Our bnb is situated on a hill at the border of Ocho Rios , it is a safe and quit place and we enjoy living between the Jamaicans . We also offer personalised tours because we love to show our guests the beauty of the Island . So instead of staying in a large resort or hotel we offer you the opportunity to enjoy the real Jamaica , where you meet the people that live and work there , enjoy the beauty of the Jamaican nature and you get to find out why we love Jamaica so much . So if you want to enjoy an all-inclusive stay , we are not the place for you . But if you want to get the feeling of Jamaica , we will be glad to answer all your questions

If you like to explore Jamaica, this is the place to be. This dutch couple lives on this Island for many years and they are still intersted in visiting nice places. They drive you around with a smile. Every breakfast starts with a smile. We booked for several weeks and saw a lot of beatiful waterfalls, beatiful beaches, markets, plantages, etc. Rita is famous for her cooking. The B&B is located uphill with banana- and palmtrees. You must drink the local RED STRIPE beer and the famous RUM PUNCH. It rains often during the night, so everything is clean and fresh in the morning. To us , Jamaica is an unforgettable Island, the rumour that it is dangerous is noncense. we only met friendly Jamaicans.

Nog voor we bij de accomodatie waren hadden we het eerste jamaicaanse gerecht al op(Jerk) .Prima accomodatie met eigen ingang ,en koelkast, en de badkamer was voor ons ook voldoende,echt een plek om te relaxen, we zaten midden tussen de locale bevolking, en hebben veel van het eiland gezien dit was mede te danken aan de gastheer Jo en gastvrouw Rita

This three bed property (two available to guests) was a delightful surprise as it gave the two of us a feel of living in a comfortable home with welcoming, respectful, and generous Jamaican neighbours. The bedroom we used was very comfortable. There was access to a range of clean bed sheets towels and more. Actually we had the whole house to live in. It was like exploring Jamaican home. The home owners (absent) Jo and Rita insists we lived as it were our own home. This property came with alot of home comforts like a TV with many TV channels. Internet, new kettle, ironing board plus iron, air conditioning units in bedroom and living room. Mobile fan. Mosquito Zapper. Access to a home programmable computer (not used by us). The kitchen is fully functional. The garden had my favourite tea called fever grass. In the garden were Lime tree, soursop tree, leaf life, Aloe Vera, Tuna plant. There is ample gated parking space at front of house. We were very greatful to have this experience. This is a very peaceful and relaxing area. The bathroom had constant hot running water. There is also a washing machine and a long washing cloths drying line The only home comfort item that we did miss some evenings was a large sofa chair to relax in whilst watching the TV. Having a hired car might be a useful idea here as it is a little way from Ochi town centre (15mins drive). There are a few small local food shops near by. Many beautiful beeches. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to going back on our return trip.

Wir waren zwei Nächte in "Rita's Home Away From Home" zu Gast. Das Mango-Zimmmer hat ein innen liegendes Bad und ist, wie auch die anderen Zimmer, grosszügig geschnitten. Es hat eine Klimaanlage und einen Ventilator. Das Bett ist auch für zwei Schlafende sehr bequem. Das Badezimmer mit Dusche ist sauber und es gibt heisses! Wasser mit einem phänomenalen Wasserdruck sowie inclusive Pflegeprodukte. Rita und Jo waren vor Ort und gaben alles, um uns einen tollen Aufenthalt zu ermöglichen. Gern machen sie mit Gästen Ausflüge in die nähere Umgebung und vermitteln auch weitere Touren. Das liebevoll zubereitete Frühstück nahmen wir gemeinsam ein und auch Abendessen kann man auf Vorbestellung haben. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist in "Rita's Home Away From Home" im Vergleich mit ähnlichen Unterkünften auf Jamaika super. Auch wenn die Unterkunft nicht am Meer liegt, würden wir wieder dort buchen. Danke Rita und Jo für die schönen 2 Tage bei euch!
