Description

The space

The Cottage is in walking distance to the town( 5 Minutes) and as one guest said, it is in an 'authentic' Jamaican neighborhood where in addition to the most friendly neighbors you will encounter you will also experience true Jamaican congeniality. In this neighborhood you will also hear dogs , cats and goats. In addition there are chickens that go to sleep in trees by night and joyfully announce the breaking of dawn and the rising of the morning sun,You might even occasionally hear singing coming from a local church, in addition to the sweet pulsing beat of reggae music in the air, all adding to the flavor of this neighborhood. (LITE SLEEPERS SHOULD CONSIDER BRINGING ALONG EAR PLUGS.) The view is SPECTACULAR ,ONE OF THE VERY BEST IN PORT ANTONIO and when it's time for you to leave you'll wish you could take it with you. The cottage provides ceiling fans and two modestly furnished bedrooms, a living and dining areas and a kitchen with refrigerator, stove, microwave, in addition to pots, pans, plates and other gadgets and utensils etc. Here you will be able to prepare your choice of meals with ease or have someone (we would recommend) do it for you at extra cost.Hot water is also available.. .The space comfortably accommodates four individuals.

Owen and Marcia's place is great to get to know the real Port Antonio. It's situated in a nice neighborhood, surrounded by friendly neighbors, dogs, goats and chickens. We loved to sit on the terrace to watch what was going on around us. Also the view over Port Antonio is just amazing. The house itself is not the newest, but it was clean and we had everything we needed. Also if you are not used to all the animal sounds, I recommend to bring some ear plugs.

We stayed here for week while in port Antonio and loved the house. The picture do exaggerate the luxury of the house but all in all it was very clean and very nice. The view was amazing an The neighbor takes care of the house and checked us in and answered all questions. We had a car and the parking was tight but available. The sounds of the city music can be heard but didn't bother us

Amazing spot in the heart of Port Antonio! Super scenic views of the harbor and the surrounding lush hillsides. A must visit when in Portland!

Great place to stay, lots of space and good locks on doors. The family that helped us in is very kind. The place was much darker and not as nice as the pictures express but still a nice place for the price.

We spent a wonderful week at the Pineapple Seaview Cottage. Owen and Marcia's place is clean, modern, and incredibly comfortable. Not only does it's location offer splendid views of Port Antonio and the ocean beyond, it is also blessed by a constant sea breeze. Portland Parish has the lowest crime rate in all of Jamaica and the friendliest people on the island by far. Port Antonio itself is quite a special place. Although somewhat hectic at first, if you move slowly, ask questions, and explore your surroundings, you will discover many of its secrets. If I ever return to Port Antonio I can't imagine staying anywhere other than the Pineapple Seaview Cottage.

I stayed at this house for three days in November. It's nestled in a lush tropical hill along with other houses and animals (dogs, goats, roosters). The view of the ocean is fantastic. The house itself is in a good condition and has everything that you need for a down-to-earth tropical stay. I will say that the photos exaggerate the luxury of the house, which is fine. The house is also very very safe. The neighborhood is safe (everyone works and has a life) and the house itself is very safe. I know this because I locked myself out of the house and had to work to break in! There is no way anyone can get in there unless they are hacking down the doors and windows with an axe... which would give you plenty of time to get help (and that would never happen!!!). Overall, my favorite part was doing yoga out on the patio and eating breakfast on the other patio. Anne-Marie, Trisha and the other family members are friendly and cool. Also, Kevin, is a driver who lives on the same street -- I can't say enough good things about Kevin! He helped me get all over the island and was awesome to be around. Really recommend this place if you are down to chill out and get back to basics! Also know that it's about a 2.5 hr drive from the airport so you will need to arrange a ride to the house. Have a great stay! Thank you, Owen, Marcia and everyone!
