Earlier in the year, after looking at all the rave reviews on Trip Advisor about what Richard and Marcia have to offer - not only accommodation in their beautiful home but also airport transfers and tours, we booked with them. From the outset we felt they could be relied on to look after us and having built up a rapport via emailing our requests over the months, when it came to our arrival at Kingston it was like being met by a good friend. Marcia helped us settle in after our long journey - we had a large bedroom with a comfortable double bed and ceiling fan plus our very own bathroom - and told that there would be no rush to have breakfast in the morning and that it would be when we woke up. Every morning we had fresh fruit, toast and jam, tea and coffee and every morning Marcia would present us with a new Jamaican fruit or dish to try such as fried plantain, ake and salt fish etc.,The view from their balcony is amazing for you can see right across the local cricket pitch... more

Exellent place where to stay in Ochi!!
Richard and Marcia are two lovely person who helped us a lot during our stay in there!!
Very nice house on top of the hill in Content Garden, best place if you are thinking where to stay in Ochi..
We have stayed for about 10 days and we enjoyed a lot!!
very nice room with fan, hot water shower, big beds, fridge..what else do you eant..even a good coffee in the morning!!
Staying there il like being home away from home!!
Placed in a good location close to Ochi downtown but away enough to have a quiet night and a good sleep..
Thanks again to Mom and Dad!!
