I have traveled to Jamaica many times this was by far my most memorable trip. Everything was as described, cabin was clean, the river is beautiful. I watched parrots, and hummingbirds feed from the beautiful trees and flowers. I had a great time hanging out with her crew and family (all amazing) . Everyone is very welcoming, and helpful. This is a place you can meet and live with real Jamaicans in an undisturbed tropical atmosphere. I had a blast ,and will return. Everything is within a moments walk or short drive. Beer, water, food, and rum was plentiful. A few nights we all watched movies outside, and shared lots of laughs. They will help you plan an adventure, and get you to and fro safely. I can't wait to return and see the new cabins, lots to come to this developing piece of Paradise.

Such a special and wonderful experience, really. This stay is cabins with electricity on a river that you can swim in about a 25 minute walk /short drive from Melissa's small business where the guests eat, drink and mingle. There are bathrooms and shower a quick step away from the cabins. Each cabin has a covered porch with a chair, perfect for reading and relaxing. The location is pretty much in the jungle 30 minutes drive from the airport where they can pick you up for $20 per person or the bus stop in town. Meals are $5 and rum and beer available, all affordable. Melissa is there to answer all questions and help arrange day trips. This location is very remote so one would need a taxi or their driver (who is equally awesome) to take you, no real shops or anything around so bring what you need. It was such a joy meeting Melissa, her family, guests and friends and experiencing a bit of 'real jamaica'. Not easily forgotton. We would love to go back! Great food, irie times, looking forward to see how they will definitely expand! (Bring bug spray)

Wooow! This is s just an amazing place. Its really as the name promises it to be.. like a piece of paradise. If u search for a real authentic Jamaican experience, this is the right place to go... Its nothing for little princesses expecting a/c and hot water showers, but u can full-joy ur night straight down by the river, have ur morning bath in the river, try the natural jacuzzi and try some real and freshly cooked jamaican food. U will find an authentic jamaican place that must have been visited before u die, while additionally getting to know parts of the haitian and Canadian culture for free! U will experience the best time of ur life just 20min away from mobay airport. .. make sure u going on killer's bamboo rafting and spa tour ... its more than a must do too!! Thx for welcoming us as ur guest melissa!

Staying with Melissa made us feel like we were part of her family- she introduced us to her whole community and cooked delicious homemade food every day. She works very hard to provide her guests with a fantastic experience and she has all the hookups for local activities that aren't super touristy. By the end of our stay we felt like we had gotten to know a little piece of real jamaica, and we made great friends with the workaways who were also staying with Melissa. Kudos for providing us with a truly unique experience- we'll have stories to tell for a very long time.

We love this family. They have made us feel very comfortable all the time we spent with them. They were caring and loving. It is impossible not to feel well in their company. Amazing people, always ready to help, they even make you breathe the peace of the place. They work hard to make you feel at home. We are so happy for having had the opportunity of knowing them and 'their place in the world', which is unique for its beauty, its peace, and the pleasant and constant sound of the river out there...

About Mélissa

I introduce myself, I am a mother of 2 wonderful children aged 14 and 9
years. I come from a family of artists, I do not need to tell you that music is everywhere in our lives.
As soon as we arrived in Jamaica, we lived peacefully in a district which is called Eden where we received our very first guests and we have also opened a small bar / shop. Later, we moved to the edge of the Great River still in Eden where we also received a variety of guests.

In Eden, we are close to the community and that's exactly what attracted us in life in Jamaica and especially in the mountains. We can not complain, we live in a beautiful and simple life close to nature.

In addition when you visit us, you support our immense project of ecological and economic construction. Indeed, we are building our guest house with Eartbags. An innovative method that improved the fate of our planet. Being here, you can visit our construction site and our volunteers who come from all over the world, the site is just a few steps from your bamboo cabin.

During your stay among us, you will appreciate the horse tour organized by a local and his horse! We will always have a volunteer who will be able to accompany you during your excursion, if you want!

In conclusion, we love life and the people it allows us to meet. The key words with me are honesty, love, respect and listening. Hope to make you enjoy our environment.
