I can safely say that the positive reviews of this pretty place are spot on. A handy stop-off between Ochi and the East coast it would seem but also a genuinely pleasant guesthouse with a superb beach near a friendly and vibrant town. We stayed at the same time as reviewer Kat J- the communal areas are not only tranquil... More

We stayed two nights here in January - Stephan was a very warm and welcoming host. We quickly felt right at home. The building is lovingly maintained and eclectically decorated with both local and foreign objects. We spent a lot of our day and evenings relaxing on the veranda of the house looking out over the ocean. It's about a... More

We booked in for only one night, but kept returning – to eat, buy bread (homemade by Stefan), and watch turtles hatch on the beach below the house. Stefan is a kind and generous host; the house is old, and lovingly cared for. The location is good for exploring the north coast of the island.

My wife, myself and daughter stayed here for a few days in December. It is a very informal place and Nikola and Stephan are very friendly and informative hosts. The house has a wraparound verandah which overlooks the ocean and is a pleasant place to sit and chat with a cold beer. There is a well stocked communal kitchen which... More

This place is simply wonderful. The house is a gorgeous 1920s colonial style house that has been remade beautifully into an amazing B&B. The rooms are so well decorated and very comfortable. Our hosts were so friendly and helpful in every way. And the food... OMG! The food... incredible! Our hosts knocked our socks off every meal we had here,... More

We loved staying with Nikola and Stephan. My husband got a chance to re-engage his German and we enjoyed having German bread for breakfast each morning. We stayed in the private room with private bath and it reminded me of staying at my grandparents in Jamaica as a child. The room was quirky with natural Jamaican items being used in... More

A few weeks ago we were still enjoying our wonderful staying at Stephan's and Nikola's B&B. How could we better thank them for all the magnificent days we experienced in Oracabessa than leaving a deserved reference on this website, together with a photo album of our week staying with them. We came to Jamaica to explore the entire island for... More

I had a most enjoyable time in this funky, Berlin-like, clean & comfortable B&B, where other meals are also provided on the verand overlooking the sea & the wonderful German bread baked by Stefan who also runs the German Sunbread Bakery is liberally available. Nikola was a great hostess & did everything she could for me, including waking me with... More
