Robert, Thank you so much for choosing us and thank you for your heart-warming review. We loved hearing about your deep connection with Jamaica and wish you the best with your business investments. It was great to meet Johanna as well -- good luck to you both in finding the Topaz waterfall - for your free stay with us. We look forward to spending much more time with you. Do come back soon to this, your family home in Mt. Salem. One love, Cheri and Jah B

My stay at Cheris and Jah B's Aqua Blue house was just amazing! the whole atmosphere was very loving and familiar, beginning from the pick up from the airport, to all the stories and insights they had to share, the lovely colorful rooms or just the relaxed vibe that helped me fee…

Saskia, Thanks for the heart-warming review. You're just awesome....and you are slowing down and flexing like a Jamaican already. Love that creative garment you made -- a designer -- so perfect for traveling -- it can be pants, a skirt, a dress and a shirt -- amazing. So glad we get to spend time with you again in 12 days when you've toured all around --- then you can tell even more about your experience in jammin' Jamaica, our beautiful land of wood and water. One love, one heart, Jah B and Cheri

Carl, Thanks so much for choosing us and providing such a detailed, positive review. We really had a good time together....you were a good student of Jamaican cooking (quickly becoming a sou chef)....and wasn't it perfect that you met two of our other guests and linked up with them to travel together to more places in Jamaica. Thanks for sending us a large sampling of the great photos you took along the way. Hav an amazing rest of your trip. Looking forward to hearing from you. One love, One heart, Cheri and Jah B

Cheri and her husband are very friendly and do their best to be attentive to their guests. I think a lot of my issues are cultural differences, but since Cheri is from the US I suppose my standards might have been higher than they should for Jamaica. With that said, I was disappo…

Response from Cheri With Jah B:
Ahhh Alyce, we really enjoyed having you with us, although it rained most of the time making you understandably disappointed. You are the first of our 60+ sets of guests (totaling 100s, many single women, families, dance groups, campers--from 4 years old to 81), over the past 9 months since we opened who have given us such a negative rating. Thus, we were quite surprised, as you never expressed any concerns to us during your visit—we would have immediately addressed any that were in our control. We're so sorry you reported the rooms’ surfaces weren't clean. Those rooms, which are nearest the front street, are subject to fine dust wafting up through the air from the street, and we must not have wiped the surfaces again right before you arrived. We’ll be more attentive to that. Thank you. We have been proud to have earned 5-star AirBnB Superhosts for our first 3 quarters of operation. Since your remark about the taxis, I have added details to the posting about the short taxi rides ($.80US each) that one can take, to and from our home, as an option for getting first – to downtown (about 5-7 min.) - and second, to the whole of the Hip Strip of beaches, shops, dancing, etc. (5-7 minutes). We find that many of our guests even like to walk to and from downtown and the Hip Strip - taking in the sites, stores and people along the way. Our location is a very safe, middle-class neighborhood with several quiet, adult-care homes, and a supermarket, and small markets for snacks, beer/wine, ice cream, also takeout food cook shops, and taxi service, etc. within a block (that even our 10-year-old nieces walk back and forth at night with no concern), up on the highest point of Montego Bay with a great view and breeze. Since this is described in our posting, we’re puzzled that you gave it a negative rating as you expected something different--what? We were again surprised, with our very low lodging prices for a very spacious, modern and comfortable home, when it seemed you implied our convenient, extra services, which many places don’t have for guests, i.e. meal preparation upon request, transport, washing machine usage, should not have an extra charge. Many of your concerns are beyond our control, i.e. no sidewalks some places, disappointing beach, traffic and dog sounds, navigation, your high expectations of a young, developing country. We're always glad to communicate with prospective guests as much as they want, before they book, to communicate a feel for the place. Given a chance, we strive to discern expectations, so we can give a sense of the reality of everyday Jamaica, so people don’t have to rate us low because of different expectations, perhaps wanting the offerings of a developed country or a gated resort. Thank you for your acknowledgment of the kind people, our highly discounted airport transport (1/2 price of airport taxis), our lovely verandas, friendliness, and attentiveness. We invite you to come again and wish you a happy life.

Amazing hosts. From the time I arrived, until departure, I was treated as family. Cheri and Jah B are resourceful and organized. Jah B shares Jamaican cuisine for a nominal fee. You can interact as little or as much as you desire I will be returning asap.
