"THIS IS A TEN-STAR-RATING! what a place!!!
first of all: mel is a wonderful host, very very kind and warm hearted. she took us for a nature walk and showed us her beautiful property. there are some nice spots, from where you can view a big part of westmoreland. she also introduced us to her family, they all live in kentucky on the same hill, all lovely people! everything is so green, blooming and living, hummingbirds fly around your head.
we stayed 3 nights in the blue mahoe cabin, it has a fantastic view over the natural garden. it also has an outdoor toilet on the same level and an outdoor shower on the ground level, both built perfectly, big up terry the carpenter!
we used mel's kitchen to cook our own food, but you should definitely try mel's breakfast and dinner, she is wonderful chef as well. ;-)
we will come back to this little paradise in the hills.
thanks mel for everything, it was so nice to meet you, keep doin your thing, you couldn't do it any better! all the best, one love

Altre cose da tenere a mente
Relax in a hammock while sipping fresh pressed local juices as doctor birds flutter magically over head. Eat homemade Jamaican food made from fresh local produce. Go for long leisurely walks up or down the mountain and stop in at the small local shops and bars along the winding road for a drink and some local personality. If you are interested in horticulture, bird watching, and biodiversity, this is the spot for you. If you are looking for a serene and placid getaway from the bustle and commotion of daily living this is the place to decompress, relax and rejuvenate.

Hello or as we say in Jamaica "WahGwaan ". I was born and raised on this beautiful mountain, 2500 feet above the Caribbean Sea. When I was younger, nothing thrilled me more than to walk down to Bluefields Beach with my mother, father and 7 brothers and sisters when visitors from abroad would come to stay at my fathers coffee farm. We all loved buying ice cream from the man with his igloo cooler strapped to the back of his peddle bike. I'm passionate about many things but my top three include meeting and hosting guests and visitors from around the world, my amazing daughter, Kiara and of course, gardening. In 2017 I began offering my personal home to visitors. This home has been in my family for many generations, in 2015 I started renovating and expanding it to include three verandas, electricity & indoor plumbing. In 2018 we added “the blue Mahoe” a romantic cabin overlooking the gardens. In 2019 we added the “tree likkle birds” with a panoramic view of the mountains and sea. Many people come here as visitors and leave as friends. Come visit us, we would love to show you our likkle piece of "paradise". One Love, Mel
