Me and my friend Jessica stayed for one month at Shades cottage, Bluefields Jamaica. We had a wonderful time. The rooms are clean and cosy (love the colours!!). The hosts are “Bigga”, his wife and his daughters. All very nice and welcome people. They love to teach you about the local life. For example, Bigga showed us his big garden full of fresh herbs and fruits. If you want, they cook you breakfast and diner (Jamaican style, I would recommend!). On the other side of the road, there is a nice restaurant and the beach is only 5 or 10 minutes walking. Taxi’s are cheap and will bring you within 30 minutes into bigger cities. All together, it is a beautiful safe place which gives you a change to learn about the local life. If I will go back to Jamaica one day, I’ll definitely go back to Shades Cottage!
Bigga and his family are friendly, welcoming and caring hosts. We had a very good experience staying in the shades cottage. The guesthouse is comfortable, clean and has a bathroom over the jamaican standards. In the daytime Bigga is the perfect guide for you to experience the country side of Jamaica and will drive with you to caves, rivers etc. Also it's only a few minutes to a nice beach spot and the supermarket. Bigga's wife can cook a delicious jamaican dinner for you. They also serve you different tropical drinks and fruits. Thank you for the beautiful week!
