“we love this place”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Michael is lovely host...thanks again for your warm welcome. Our stay was great, especially the eggs you gave us for breakfast ;-)). We love the place, okay there where some stairs to go up, but my children love the wilderness of this place and we chilled there most of the day in our Hammock and in the evening we went for fishing....very nice place to stay and to hang around. We cooked most of the time and hang out outside the veranda while children play around...best place and we hope to come back in 2 years....see you Michael....

“Best view of Port Antonio and environs”

Mike was an incredible host. I bombarded him with questions prior to my stay and he responded quickly and patiently! We arrived in darkness but to a well stocked fridge with some beers and good coffee which is next to impossible to find in PA. I woke up the next morning to an incredible view, perfect stillness punctuated only by occasional birdsong and cricket chat. From the terrace you have an incredible panoramic view of PA and the coast. Mike was always available and very helpful. Oh and there are fresh eggs from his own hens - delicious. Ideal spot for a few days exploring PA - Frenchman's Cove and Winifred's Beach are within 15 mins cheap taxi ride. I'd recommend the later.

“Best kept secret...jungle life, close to town”
Reviewed November 19, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

My little review won't cover the immensity of the amazing experience that I had at Michael's. I chose his place because I wanted something in the jungle with a friendly vibe and close to town. I got what I asked for. There are about 200-300 steps to get up to his place (which kept me in great shape). We'd always pass by his house and say hi, which was always welcoming. I saw large frogs, snails, and lizards along the tropical path to our place and the exotic smells were amazing. Our tree house (or cottage) was rustic and perfect for me. Downstairs was the kitchen and bathroom and up was our beds, a sitting room and balcony which over looked the jungle and the ocean in the distance. He leant me his binoculars and I was able to view many beautiful tropical birds. The morning and night sounds was music, crickets, croaks, and roosters, and dogs. Loved it. Michael was cool, friendly and enjoyable to chat with. I would go back there for sure!!! I am hopefully planning a hiking trip with some friends for next November!!!

“great views with a true rustic Jamaica feel”

person found this review helpful

Mike and his family were great and made our stay comfortable and enjoyable.
Host was very knowledgeable about where to go and what to see.
We bartered our own transportation in the streets just for the adventure of it.
You can hire a charter driver for between 70 and 100 USD a day that will take you right to the attractions.
the beaches from port Antonio to long bay cannot be described with words.
the must go places are as follows.
1.Frenchmans Cove
2.Reach Falls, its a bit of a ride ( far end of the island) but WELL worth the time
3.Winnefred beach ( save your appetite for the little grill on the beach I would recommend the lobster :) a lady named setti runs the place the beer was cold and the food was AWESOME )
4. Boston Beach
5. rafting the Rio Grande

The people of Jamaica made all the difference

Stayed here for three nights during the March break. It's true that there are a lot of steps to climb, but the payoff is the view which is breathtaking.
Mike was an extremely attentive host. He organised a rafting trip for us and even sent a family member to help us find our way around town the first day to buy our groceries!

“We hope to return!”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Mike & his kids are the most welcoming and helpful hosts one could ask for. We had to deal with some child medical issues during our stay and Mike was there to help at every turn. This natural escape in the hills above Port Antonio is a gem. Mike has constructed comfortable cabins with incredible views. This is a great base from which to explore all Port Antonio and nearby beaches have to offer, especially if you rent a car. If you can deal with mosquitoes, are in good shape and don't mind winding stairs up a hillside, than those stairs will lead you to this quiet, safe, hillside spot with amazing views, lush vegetation and a friendly local family to be your hosts. Incredible value and wonderful people! We hope to return some day!
