I had an amazing stay. I wanted a getaway but didn't want to be in Negril and I wanted to know the real Jamaica. Shanaga and Rob were amazing hosts. They were there for part of the time and rest of the time I was like a member of their family. They had an amazing family party while I was there, limousines, hundreds of people, music right on the water. It was a great time. Everyone in the village welcomed me and Shanaga's cousins took me all over the place on the backs of their motorcycles. There are amazing fruit trees in the yard and Omar (Shanaga's cousin) picked fresh ackee and made me ackee and saltfish, the national dish. It was amazing. I have been home for a few months and I still crave it! I had breadfruit from the yard too, really good. I walked out the back on the coral and jumped right in the ocean for a swim every morning. I loved that. Lots of good beaches nearby. I went to Bob Marley's swimming hole and Blue Hole too. Mostly I just chilled out. There is no pressure here and for the first time in a long time I truly relaxed. I enjoyed walking through the village and stopping to talk with everyone. Everyone in the area is family and they all treated me so well. They knew my name and were really friendly. They took me anywhere I wanted to go. I went into the bush with them. I saw their farms and we cooked and ate together. It reminded me of how things were when I grew up. Friends all around and a real sense of community. The third floor was under construction and I loved that I could walk all over the house and see the construction techniques and talk to everyone. I was really impressed by how they cut trees from the morrows to build the supports for a concrete floor that was being built. There is no other home like this one in the area and the price is not likely to stay low for long. I loved having my coffee on the third floor balcony looking across the valley to the mountain with exotic birds flying by and people going by on the main road waving hi with a friendly "Morning". There is a good sized gym in the house and I had some great workouts too. It's a beautiful village atmosphere so you are going to come across goats, chickens, horses, and a variety of wildlife every day. If you are the someone who is uncomfortable with people or who wants to be fawned over and pampered like a big shot, then you are probably better off in one of the all inclusive resorts. But if you want a genuine experience as part of a beautiful family and community, if you want to get your hands dirty and learn how to prepare ackee, if you want to get to know Jamaican culture in a safe and friendly environment, then I highly recommend A Promise Kept Guesthouse. This is the only place other than where I grew up where it feels like home and I can't wait to go back. I could honestly see myself retiring there someday. Thanks for a wonderful stay! I miss all o uno!
