MIkuzi is adorable. It is like staying in your own home, with a full kitchen, lovely decor and even a little library. But what made Mikuzi special was the keeper, Steve. He was so kind, honest and friendly...he walked us down to Winnifred when we first arrived, told us all the good spots to go for food and even drove with us to the Rio Grande river tour (and took our car to the termination point) for $6 which is probably half of what a route taxi would have cost. His aunt runs a little bar across the street and we really enjoyed her company, as well as talking to the other locals. My husband and I plan to send Steve a xmas card with a bit of money :)
There were some issues with the water pressure, but that didn't really matter. We had a lovely stay and I only rated sleep quality a "4" because you are in the rain forest and there are some heavy midnight downpours (though looking back, it was a bit romantic).
Very close to Port Antonio, The Blue Hole and Frenchman's Cove (though maybe not walking distance). As we ate jerk lobster at Little Davies on our last night, I told my husband that our first full day at Fairy Hill was the best day in our entire trip. There is a completely different pace here, and we encounter 10 times more hustling in downtown San Diego than we did in PA. Highly recommended!
