    Jo & Rita are the most warm, welcoming and loveable couple that we have ever had the pleasure of staying with. We will most definitely be visiting Jamaica again, simply on account of our stay with them. They have made us want to return to Jamaica...

Why our bed and breakfast is your best choice : 1. we invested in solar panels to provide for our own electricity and warm water . 2. we put real windows in our house and free ac in each room for your comfort 3. we buy most of our food at the farmers market to help the local farmers , and.... the quality is better than in the stores 4. we know al the places worth visiting , not only the big tourist hotspots but the hidden gems too . 5. Our bnb is in Eltham , very close to a lot of places worth going to ; The Blue Hole , White River , The old Spanish Bridge , Fantasy Cove , Mahogany Beach , Fern Gully , aso 6. We do not offer the lowest prices , you can easily find a cheaper bnb but .... will it have what we offer you ? Our prices are not high but fair , so just message us to find out what we can do for you .
We bought the house six years ago because we fell in love with it right away . There is nature all around , you can walk everywhere you like , all the people are very friendly and it is a safe place to be . That is why we want to share the love we feel for our house in this community by renting out two of our three bedrooms to guests who want to experience the real Jamaica . We have a bedroom and a bathroom for ourself , the two rooms we rent out have a shared bathroom . We love to drive around in Jamaica and have found a lot of beautiful places we want to tell you about so you can go there to if you like .
Eltham is very close to the famous Blue Hole and the rafting at white river , we can take you there in 10 minutes if you like to go there . The beaches and the centre of Ocho Rios are very close too, so if you want to go to the beach or go shopping it is only a few miles away . Dunns River Falls is close too and even Firefly , where the pirate Captain Morgan used to live is not far away from Eltham . We can take you there ourselves , or you can take a local taxi . If you like to travel to Negril or to the famous Blue Lagoon or any other of the many beautiful places in Jamaica we can arrange that for you too .
