The View!!!!!The mountains!!! The Ocean!!!! The tranquility!!! The uncluttered nature of the location!!! The proximity to major attractions and the town of Port Antonio, but yet away from the maddening crowd.
Public transport ie. route taxis run frequently past our location.
Great for small families and groups.
Marva is a fantastic cook!!!!
A great place for fishing facing the world famous landmark Trident Castle
Mi casa es su casa. Treat it as you would your own home - with care.
Please do not take the white bath towels to the beach.
Beach towels are available upon request.
This place is AWESOME!!!
The house is very spacious and clean.
There is a huge wooden terrace to relax in the sun.
The view on Dolphin Bay is really amazing.
It's a 5 min drive from Port Antonio
There are many cool activities closeby
Marva who also stays in the house is an amazing cook and will let you discover local dishes (but now also crepes!)
And last but not least, Gary is the most welcoming and nice host I have ever met!
I highly recommend this place!
We were 9 people staying at Max and Gary's place. We arrived by night so we didn't realise the complete beauty of the place yet. When we woke up, we had an amazing view on the bay from the wood deck and that was just magical. We felt very good there: the cottages were super comfortable, nothing was missing. And the cherry on the cake is adorable Marva who is an amazing cook (don't hesitate to ask her to cook for you, it is better than going to the restaurant!)
We were all very sad to leave Port Antonio because of our great stay. My only advice to you: book it with no hesitation!
We had wonderful Time in Max house during our weekend in Jamaica. The landscape is amazing, the house is really spacious, Di and Charlie Brown are really Nice, and Marva food is amazing. We were too busy to have time to meet Max, it s gonna be for an other time. Becareful to the Mosquitos and the cold water :)
One word can describe Max's lovely chateau: paradise. It was exactly the kind of place we were looking for and more. The location is wonderfully peaceful, but close to everything. We were a few minutes drive from Frenchmen's cove, the blue lagoon, great good stands, a supermarket, and the centre of Port Antonio. The house was clean and had everything one would need to cook delicious meals with all the fresh foods that are immediately accessible. Max was incredibly hospitable and helpful. This was my first trip to Jamaica and I could not have asked for a better experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Ridge Bay Chateau to anyone who is looking for a great vacation that is removed from the overly touristy experience. Although everything is very close, I would highly recommend renting a car.
Overall, an amazing place to stay!
Max and Gary were great host.if you love the country and peace and quit then is the place for you.the maid,Marva was a great cook,love her Jamaican food dishes.
Max and Gary were so great and accommodating, I can't recommend their place enough. They made sure we were comfortable and even went hours out of their way to help us make the drive to Kingston safely. Port Antonio is a beautiful place with all the necessary conveniences of a city within reach, and the view from max and Gary's cottage is a wonderful way to start your day on the north coast. The three bedroom house is clean and great for lounging after a trip to the beach, and at no point did we feel the slightest bit worried about security, bugs, etc. Great place, great hosts, great value.
We are Jamaican. My husband is British-Jamaican. We live here in Jamaica and enjoy sharing our lovely property with visitors from home and abroad. We love having guests from other countries so we can impart a bit of our culture with you. Guests love Marva's cooking, so do try and book her whenever you book Ridge Bay Chateau. Welcome all.
