“Mango Ridge was a great fit for my boyfriend and I during our stay in Port Antonio. The description and photos were accurate so our expectations in that regard were exactly as expected. Our favorite part of the house was the view out of the bedroom windows - it was beautiful in daylight and dark alike. We enjoyed the sounds of the town and the jungle alike throughout the night and used the provided fans to keep air flowing with the humidity. Michael was great to work with - check in, arrival, help and suggestions during our stay, and checkout all went seamless. Michael was also very personally helpful - he helped carry my bag up the steps and also gave us suggestions on restaurants and things to do.”
small cottage with one double bed and one single bed..farthest from car park,about 300 steps up the hill..ideal for backpackers..large suitcases inadvisable..best view from wraparound verandah..about a 7 minute walk from the car park at the bottom of our steep hill..this cottage is not completely sealed from the rainforest so visitors may experience nature in lizard and insect form..it helps us if we know your approx. arrival time..easier to find us before dark..wifi at office courtyard
“Michael is an amazing host! Very helpful, with all the best tips to enjoy Port Antonio to its full potential. No matter what you need he “knows a guy” and helped us plan multiple excursions and pick up from the airport. Although the stairs are a factor, the view is a rewarding pay off. If you are able bodied they shouldn’t be much of an issue (my partner and I are smokers and made it up in 3-5 minutes) and many great restaurants and bars are minutes from the bottom. All the best beaches of the region are 10-20 minutes away in a route taxi which costs 1-2$. The bungalow itself is beautiful, with a scenic outdoor shower, and a wonderful wrap around deck with a view of the whole city. It is well equipped with anything and everything you may need. Although Port Antonio can get busy, mango ridge offers respite up in the jungle, and at night all you can hear is crickets, frogs and whatever other creatures you will share the jungle with. If you’re planning a trip to Jamaica, make sure you visit Port Antonio, and if you’re visiting Port Antonio, make sure you stay with Michael.”
Exquisitely furnished and decorated apartment suitable for business travelers or guests with a high standard for accommodations.
“Sandy’s place is clean and easy to get to. Although I found Kingston completely safe, the 24 hour security adds an additional peace of mind. In fact, as I was walking out the gate, phone in hand, Brian (security guard) told me not talk walk with my phone as it wasn’t safe. Sandy herself was very responsive and helpful. I had a couple questions after checking in and she made sure I was settled and comfortable and responded very quickly. A very, very good experience - with air conditioning! - that I highly recommend.”
