Neita's Nest
Ranked #1 of 31 Kingston B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 12, 2011

Neita's Nest is a Jamaican treasure, a hillside country retreat with fascinating historic connections just a few minutes from the cultural heart of Jamaica, the mighty city of Kingston. I loved my stay because of the winning hospitality of the hostess, Michelle Neita. Michelle helped me find a bargain car rental and repeatedly and happily gave me block-by-block traffic directions on her cell phone whenever I took a wrong turn. In addition, MIchelle introduced me to two charming and excellent Scrabble players for an unforgettable Sunday-morning game. I look forward to returning to Neita's Nest and my new friends there.

Dear Redriverpicker, we are always good for a game of scrabble, and you are a worthy opponent, I will definitely arrange another round, or two for your next visit. Thanks much for your very kind words.
Michelle.

If you have never been to Jamaica or are a regular returner Neita's Nest is just very special.

The location just north of kingston is very convenient, the view over the mountains just stunning and great for the evening and early evening, the atmosphere relaxed and the food great.

I have used here several times and recommend to others and it's nothing but great reviews and reponses.

Really real five star fine and many many thanks to Michelle for the help and small pointers that make all the difference. Just great.

Room Tip: it's a small guest house and so very personalised...

Neita's Nest provided a much-needed peace and quiet at the end of my long days in Kingston. Ms. Charmaine prepared 5-star quality breakfasts whenever I was ready to begin each day. Michelle Neita, the proprietor, is a great source of the rich history which Jamaica affords. Every drive to town or back increased my knowledge of the area, which I have visited many times in the past several years. My room and bathroom were always clean and tidy, and the carafe of cold water upon my return each evening was a blessing. My expectations were far exceeded, and I would definitely recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone! I will definitely be using Neita's Nest for future return trips!

Yippeex8, we are happy that we fit the bill for you. Yes, your days were long and filled, and that we could add some insights along the way. Interesting conversation and a wonderful game of scrabble was our gain too. Charmaine says thank you. Looking forward to hosting you again.
Cheers,
Michelle.

We found the Michelle to be most accommodating. More than that, she was very personable. We were there on business, and had very little free time--but Michelle is a wonderful ambassador for Jamaica, and within the limited time we had she made certain we were able to have a mini-tour and the chance to experience real Jamaican food.

I can't comment on value, because our bill was paid by an outside source.

Dear Michael M. and Team,
How could we let you go home to Atlanta and not be able to say to your friends that you experienced something of Jamaica? That would be sacrilege! So, we tantalized your taste buds and teased you with just enough of our city to make you want to come again for a fuller experience. We hope we achieved that.
Anon.

I fully enjoyed meeting Michelle and living at Neita's nest while I was editing a movie in Kingston. The combination of an interesting family atmosphere while sharing my fantastic breakfast with the other guests and the refined and delicate elegance of the way Michelle runs this charming bed and breakfast, makes Neita's Nest very special. And gives the traveler the feeling of penetrating Jamaican life instead of remaining an outsider.

Dear Suzanne F.,
We like to share with our guests the Jamaica that we love, and we are truly happy that you enjoyed Jamaican life as we know it. Congrats to you on the part you played in what turned out to be an excellent Jamaican film. We are honoured to have been a part of that production, if only by providing the well-needed rest at the end of your very full days editing. Thanks too for being such a gracious guest.

Neita's Nest is an excellent bargain for the low budget traveler. My two boys made several comments about "eating healthy," everyday and they always wanted seconds. They loved that authentic Jamaican cooking. God Bless the cook, Ms. Charmaine. This bed and breakfast is in a safe location with a panoramic view of the hillside near Stony Hill. The innkeeper, Michelle Neita caters to her guest and will arrange transportaion service to and from the airport and for sightseeing for a small fee. The one thing we forgot was bug repellant and you need al ot of it during the summer months but rubbing a little Listerine on ourselves was a good alterantive but we had a good experience overall. If you go to Kingston stop by Neita's Nest for a good meal, spa treatment or just enjoy the view and meet a new friend while you're there, Michelle Neita. It's good to have trusted connections when you go to Jamaica and I am happy to know Michelle.

Dear Sharon M. Allen,
We are delighted that yours was a good experience at Neita's Nest. Your detailed review on our good value for money, on our healthy Jamaica meals, our safe haven, added services to enhance the visit and our panoramic view, is a wonderful description for what we promise to all our guests. Your resourcefulness for repellent was superseded only by your positive response to everyday challenges. None-the-less, we do now keep repellent and citronella candles and oils for the asking.
Ms Charmaine thanks you for the blessings and we too are happy to know you and your family.
Cheers,
Michelle.

I had arranged pick up from the airport with the proprietress of Neita's nest(Michelle),she immediately gave me a mini tour of major sights and landmarks of Old Kingston...this especially made me 'settle in ' quickly.I really appreciated the service at the bed and breakfast.The home is very clean and had a very pleasant 'air'.I felt like I was part of a family.A secure and serene retreat in the hills of St.Andrews.I had a comfortable room,bathroom,and because I was in Jamaica to write exams,I was able to relax and do my last minute revision.Michelle also helped me to see some tourist locations,Devon house and Bob Marley's home.I would definitely recommend this B&B to individual or family visiting Kingston,Jamaica.

Dapo O, we love to delight our guests and we find that giving value added service, despite one of the lowest bed and breakfast rates across Jamaica is always a surprise. So, whether it is wine with dinner, candlelight tea service, a mini tour of our favourite city on the way in from the Norman Manley International Airport or assisting you in personalizing your vacation, we just want you to know that we appreciate that you chose Jamaica, Kingston and of course, Neita's Nest.
Thank you for your kind remarks and we are happy that you were delighted.
Do come again.
Michelle.

Bird Watcher's Paradise/ Artist's Haven. The cool hills surrounding this upper St. Andrew home nurture a year-round verdant view, with the lush, untamed hillsides providing the perfect hideaway for over twenty species of local and migrant birds. But who's counting? The sheer joy of being awakened to nature's harmony creates the perfect setting of sights and sounds to inspire the creators of les beaux arts, the writers of poignant poetry and the composers of melodious music.
