I am really busy with research, writing, and my NGO, but I always love a good conversation over a Blue Mountain coffee or a wine with interesting people from all over the world!
The area is beautiful, safe, quiet, but central and convenient. Many great restaurants, bars, club, yoga and gyms in the area, close to UWI and UTECH campus, Mona, Barbican...
Bus and Route Taxis to Downtown, Halfway Tree, Mona, Papine, affordable charter taxis
Smoking only on the veranda
mutual respect and consideration
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Birte's place. The room and living quarters were clean, spacious and welcoming. Loved the access to the main parts of the house (ie. Kitchen/dining/laundry/garage areas). The location was quiet, private and away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough (a mile or so) to all the haps (fine dining/eateries, mall/shopping, movies, etc.) all of which we frequented. The views from the balcony were great. We had the get used to the cool water in the shower though (we're use to taking a hot one every night) and there were no additional towels or blankets the 1st night. (Which appeared to be an oversight as Birte and Peter responded immediately when we brought it to their attention). The other house guest were kind, cordial and accommodating as well. We will definitely stay at this location again or at any of the other properties Birte may have available. We look forward to doing so "soon and very soon"!!!
Birte and pete are very generous and easy going hosts. The room I had was very spacious and had an ensuite bathroom. As the hosts were still in the process of doing up the house my room did not yet have a wardrobe but there is desk besides a queen size bed with a great mattress. The house offers great views over kingston but because it is located on the hill it involves some travelling to get there. Walking down to the road to bus and taxi stops takes about 15 min and is a pleasant walk in the morning . If you like exercise you can walk up but after dark not recommendable as there are few street lights . To get back up you can take a route taxi for 100 jam dollars. At the bottom of the hill are busses and route taxis to half way tree and down town. There are also two supermarkets. The house has a great communal kitchen and birte allows you to use her wide variety if herbs and spices. Because the hosts had only recently moved in there were not yet many pots and pans but there was plenty of crockery.
Birte get back to me very quickly when I send my message to rent her room. She was very helpful in giving me all details I needed to reach the place and give me a lot of information about Kingston and the different ways to move in the city.
The room was clean and comfortable.
The only downside is that the house is really big and it's not clearly mentionned on Abnb that Birte don't live in the place and the fact that we have to share the place with 8 others guests : not really the AirBnB spirits :-/
The Experience in Kingston was awesome. Birte was very helpful. The surroundings were safe as well. The room was nice and clean. Overall enjoyed the hospitality of Birte. Chris the Chef was also nice.
Chris and Birte was available for help all the time during our stay.
We really enjoyed our time in Liguanea at Birte's! Felt so fortunate to have found such a good spot. Birte was really helpful providing details and tips on what is in the area and how to get around. There is so much you can see just on foot by walking around the neighbourhood. Would recommend this accommodation to anyone visiting Kingston city! Hope to visit again!
I recommend accommodation from Brite as the best , according to the price and transportation which is additional everything went fine for me
Brite is very helpful
What a lovely place! I felt very welcome and it was so nice to get oriented by somebody who knows Jamaica very well. Birte is wonderful and warm and I enjoyed my one night with her a lot.
Thanks so much Birte :)

I am a historian, researching Jamaican, Caribbean and African American history. I am blessed to live in beautiful and exciting Kingston, Jamaica! I have founded a NGO that operates a library, homework and youth center in one of Kingston ghettos, Cassava Piece, to provide free access to education and afternoon care for children as well as adults: (website hidden)
I know Kingston very well, and can provide you with inside knowledge on transportation, shopping, dancehall parties and clubs, restaurants and things to do and see in this fascinating wonderful city! I also know some nice and affordable places in the country side.
