“Lovely Family!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

My12 year old grand daughter spent three nights at Neita's Nest. We didn't have a car, so we depended on Michelle to drive us. She took us where we wanted to go and arranged for a tour guide to show us Kingston. Michelle and her sons welcomed us into their home and into their family. We went to church with them and toured the school where the boys attend. The boys were very special! They were funny, outgoing, talkative and SO enjoyable. I loved Kingston and wish we had spent more time there. One of the highlights of our trip to Jamaica was spending time with Michelle and the boys. As an aside ,the food was fabulous and the roooms were clean and quite nice. I highly recommend Neita's Nest.

Dear Margaret,

It was our pleasure to have hosted you and your delightful granddaughter for your stay in Kingston. A bed and breakfast in the true meaning of the concept, offers a wonderful opportunity to live in a city, and to live with a family. You seized that opportunity with open arms, and made our welcoming all the easier.

I will not forget your immediate and positive response to my invitation to join us in the celebratory mass for our former rector, the Bishop of Kingston. And this meant heading downtown to Kingston Parish Church just after you arrived! Your enthusiam set the tone for the rest of your stay with us; a visit which my sons and I equally enjoyed.

Thank you both!
Michelle.

What can we say? I enjoyed every minute spent in property. The setting is magnificent. But above all Michelle pays particular attention to all its guests. Special mention for the cuisine of Charmen. A real treat. I highly and sincerely recommend it.

Thank you for your strong recommendation, Baky.

At Neita's Nest, we strive to be more than a Bed and Breakfast; we offer a Home Stay; attention to the needs of every member of our "family", whether it is your meal plan, your tours or your quiet time, is what we put first, everytime. That you enjoyed every minute with us is what pleases us most. Thank you very much for your feedback.

Warm regards to you all,
Michelle.

We spent a full week with Michelle in her hilltop B and B waking up to lush, green, mist filled mountains just out our window. The breakfasts, dinners, and ambiance are all exceptionally Jamaican. The rooms are very clean and tastefully furnished.
What's really special, however, is Michelle's approach to her guests. She took the time to understand our desires and needs and guided us to a great Jamaican stay. She is very knowledgable about all the cultural and scenic events going on in and around Kingston. She helped us arrange a trip up in to the Blue Mountains, visiting a coffee estate, military outpost, and a cloud filled, water-falled national park. She personally took us bird watching early on a Saturday morning, followed by one of Charmain's classic Jamaican breakfasts on the varanda, and then gave us a tour of Kingston. She recommended various sites to see in and around Port Antonio that were fantastic. We can't say enough! What a hostess!

Dear "runfred",

Everytime I re-read your review I am challenged as to how to respond; this because your visit was like a vacation to me also, in that I could enjoy the process of sharing. From the get-go, you were so open about the purpose of your visit that it became easy to prepare for your stay and to help you to achieve all that you wanted to, and some.

Thank you for your openess of heart and spirit. You all gave us a wonderful vacation right here at home.

Cheers,
Michelle.

Neita's Nest in a fabulous location and we loved the views. Having operable glass windows to maximize the views would be a good touch. No electrical outlet close to the bed was a huge drag. Need to be able to plug-in and charge tech such as cell/laptop, etc.

Didn't like not having A/C and an on suite bathroom. Having to go across the hall to use the restroom is unacceptable. The bed was suppose to be king size but it was 2 mattresses pushed together. the mattresses would get pushed apart leaving a gap that I had to keep climbing out of.

I am not an indoor pet lover and wasn't happy that the owner's pet dog was around. I suggest the operator ask guests whether they appreciate indoor pets, if they don't, keep the dog on the operator's side of the property.

We thank you, Greg P, for taking the time to write your detailed and thought-provoking review of your one night stay at Neita's Nest, and are only too sorry to be reading that your brief stay was such an uncomfortable one. We wish that you had felt open to sharing your concerns and discomforts while here, as this would have given us an opportunity to apologise in person, and either fix or explain, which hopefully, would have made for a better experience. Nonetheless, a "Poor" rating keeps it real, and serves to keep us grounded.

For example, we have now amplified the description of our amenities and services on this site clarifying that, while there is a bathroom for each bedroom, these are not en suite. In addition, we do have an effective way of securing our mattresses. The fact that it was not done on this occasion was an oversight on our part, for which we apologise,

We usually ask our guests if they mind the presence of our miniature dog, and although the request is seldon ever made, when requested, we gladly keep our Shitzo Poodle on the family side of our home. Just to assure, however, we do have a valid health certificate for her as is required by our Ministry of Health, and she is groomed and bathed regularly. Further, she is not allowed in the guest bedrooms.

The many photographs of our home on this site show that our floor to ceiling windows are louvered. This is an architectual detail typical of the tropics in which we are located, and is a practical way (along with other design features of our building) of letting in the trade winds and keeping the place cool. As a result, our ceiling fans are usually very effective if and when needed. Glass windows will in fact magnify the heat.

Power strips, which allow for the simultaneous use of your various technologies, are only a request away, and we would have gladly provided.

Just for the record, ours is a bed and breakfast in the European tradition, i.e. a home stay, as opposed to a guest house or hotel. I hope this clarifies your concerns.

With kind regards,
Michelle.

Welcome to Neita's Nest ... A Jamaican Bed and Breakfast service in a private dwelling enjoyed for decades by families and friends as it lends to easy entertaining. The breathtaking view of the sunrise, the show-stopping ascent of the full moon, and the mist-wrapped mountains after rain can all be enjoyed from all three guest bedrooms, as well as from the wide verandah - a perfect breakfast/dinner nook. Our floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows make for indoor dining a no-less picturesque experience.

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. Facilities and Amenities. Breakfast, which is included in your room rate, consists of Fresh Tropical Fruit, Juice, Freshly-brewed Authentic Jamaican Coffee, Assorted Teas, a Cooked Meal, Breads & Spreads.
