What a marvelous first experience.
Courtney has a cozy nest on the top of Kingston.
A wonderful guide and a great host.
With him, we discovered the top of Jamaica (Blue Mountain Peak) and the North-East Coast.
Thank you also for the last taxi ride, always ready to help his guests when it's possible.
The hous was quite far up in the hills, further than we expected. But it was nice and Courtney was very friendly, we enjoyed our stay there.
I had a very pleasant stay. It's tucked away up in the mountains away from the big city with a spectacular view of Kingston. The room was modern and clean. Not to mention the hot water showers, which I consider a luxury when it comes to budget accommodations in JA. And not only that, it had the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on during my travels in the country. It had a nice little communal kitchen area. Nice outdoor area. It felt like home.
The only downside would be a lack of nearby eating establishments. You would have to travel back down the mountain to grab some eats. A vehicle is advisable but not necessary, the host will gladly accommodate you and take you down for a bite. There is however the option of having the host prepare a meal for you. He also offers excursions to many of the islands attractions as well as airport transportation.
I will definitely stay again when in Kingston. Thank you so much for your hospitality Courtney.
Location and the view from Kingsworth is really good. Courtney was really helpful during our stay. Best value for the money.
Shankar, Thank you for your kind words. Continental breakfast is served between 0700am - 1000am or on the guest request. We offer toast, spread, coffee or tea and orange juice. Some guest will sleep in late after a long time out the day before, so it's understood if they request the breakfast later- no prob. Personally, I do my best to keep the house very clean using environmentally safe cleaning agents.
Courtney came to get us from the bus and was great from the beginning. He has a funny sense of humor and we got on well. My son loved the Jeep and the surrounding cat family outside. Our room was lovely (aside from the occasional tropical bug). We really enjoyed ourselves there and loved the little kitchen and exciting things we did in Kingston. Emancipation park for my son was great as was the zoo at Hope Gardens and Devon House. The modern huge grocery stores and mall there were a joy to find. It was nice to reach some modern amenities after traveling around the country for a few weeks. The old synagogue in Kingston was lovely. We attended services on the Sabbath. I recommend this wonderful place for anyone really (as long as you can climb a bunch of stairs to get up the big hill!)
Courtney kam uns vom Flughafen abholen! Schöner Platz zum entspannen mit toller Aussicht auf Kingston! Das Zimmer mit geteiltem Bad und Küche war ok und sauber!
Adequate lodgings found in a lovely community high up a mountain setting. I got used to taking the route taxis up and down the mountain. Courtney was helpful with his info and suggestions.
