Border of Saint Mary + Portland, a 2 bedroom unit in Annotto Bay overlooking the town. Master bedroom, master bath, 2nd bedroom, balcony + kitchen. 30 mins from Ocho Rios (Dunn's River), 45 mins from Pt Antonio, access from Montego Bay, + rental car

The space

This unit isn't located in a "touristy" town and allows our guests to enjoy the real Jamaican culture, but still be able to venture out and enjoy tourist attractions if needed. Local markets will give you access to fresh ingredients to try your hands at local dishes and locals are friendly and the vibes are always "irie." Good food, good music, good people and good spliffs.

Dunn's River Falls (waterfalls), Mystic Mountain (zip line) Boston Jerk Center, Winifred Beach, Robin's Bay (beach), Dolphin's Cove, local beaches and rivers in walking distance

Depending on the time of year, moderate to little interaction. I live in NYC but may be around during the summer months. My family lives close by and will co-host, cook, shop and accompany guests as needed.

I love that this neighborhood isn't in the thick of things and is on the out skirts of the town. Peaceful but yet easy access to everything you need. A nice rustic setting to enjoy a jelly under a coconut tree or pick a mango straight from the tree.

Public transportation is relatively convenient. You can get to and from the town easily by bus or taxi.

I had a wonderful time here; the location was perfect and ocean views/sunset spectacular! Although we were there only two nights, we felt right at home. The place is secure/gated which adds a sense of safety. The neighborhood is very quiet! I would definitely stay here again and am going to try to negotiate that!!!

My stay was lovely, the place was clean and rather spacious. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and I felt so safe that we slept with our windows open every night. Your uncle is wonderful as I missed my morning flight and didn't get into Annotto Bay until 11pm I called with the intent for him to call me back in the morning but he called me right back and came out to me to show me the way (amazing). My only problem was the refrigerator wasn't working. Thanks for allowing me into your lovely home and I will be back again guaranteed.

"Serenity in Annotto Bay" is a terrific bargain, but not without a few drawbacks. The look from the street is as charming as the pictures; just great. The patio was also very nice and the rooms adequately furnished, etc. Sedrick's extended family was helpful; Monica set us up initially and Harvey collected the keys VERY early the day we left at our request. The location is close to the A4 main road and this side of the island is less busy than some others, so that was nice. The large bottle of water and loaf of bread for welcoming were a nice touch. So, the drawbacks mostly are from the kitchen; our expectations are a little higher than what we found. The stove requires matches to light; okay, no big deal I guess. No coffemaker at all was a disappointment. A toaster was found when we requested it, but it was in poor shape, needing to press down so hard it felt like it would break and toasting on only one side in half of it. There was only one fork to eat with; the neighbors were nice and loaned us a few more. Lastly, there was no internet and no cable, although a few TV channels came through the antenna. One more thing about the location: the roads east of here are especially pot-holed. Be careful and don't hurry! But you can find some great beaches out this way, and great food.

The pictures perfectly described the home, we felt very safe and secure, Mrs Monica greeted us and showed us how to operate everything, all parties where very easy to communicate with, we would definitely stay again. Thank you, Cassie

Sedrick and Leanna were wonderful to deal with throughout the entire process. They live in the states and have family right down the road from the house in Annotto Bay. I was traveling with 3 others and they were extremely accommodating, allowing us to add an extra mattress to the house with no extra charge. The house itself is lovely. There is a well stocked, eat-in kitchen and huge bathroom. There are two adjoining bedrooms and (the best part) a lovely porch that overlooks the mountains and neighborhood. Having traveled to Jamaica over 20 times, I can attest that this will provide a traveler with an authentic Jamaican experience. It is in a safe neighborhood with friendly neighbors and a fantastic jerk chicken stand right around the corner. You can walk to the town square (20 mins) to catch a bus and are a quick 10 minute walk from the ocean. If you are looking to escape your fast-paced life and recharge while avoiding large blobs of tourists, Annotto Bay and Sedrick and Leanna's place may be the perfect place to find your serenity! We will definitely be back for a future visit!
