Marcia and Richard were to both great hosts. My mom and I stayed at their place. They were both willing to answer any questions that we had. They had toast and coffee in the morning for us, but they brought us to the grocery store and we got to use their kitchen. They have a beautiful balcony off the front of the house where you can read a book or watch the children playing soccer in the field next door. You are provided with your own bathroom, but we had to run to the store to buy shampoo. Be aware that it can get loud at night. It was difficult to sleep with the roosters and dogs even with earplugs. The two hosts were awesome.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Marcia and Richard at their lovely home in Ocho Rios. They were very willing to help us make arrangements for tours and help us in any way they could. The space they have for rent is perfect, spacious and private and very comfortable. We will definitely stay there again if the opportunity presents itself in the future.
This listing offers great value. Marcia and Richard provided fast response time, and keep a nice, clean property. They also provided good information on places to visit. It's amost like having the entire space because you have your own entrance/private bath, but also have the benefit of staying with a helpful family. It is a safe location, and was easy to catch a route taxi into Ocho Rios. Marcia picked us up soon after we called them from the Knucksford bus station. Wish we had more time to get to know them better, if we make it back to Ochi we would stay again!
I really cannot imagine how this could have been a better stay. Marcia and Richard are excellent hosts, seeing to my comfort, my knowledge of the area, and entertaining as well. They went out of their way to accommodate me. Richard is a great tour guide. I highly recommend them to other travelers.
Really ideal location, very cozy and independent unit. Peaceful and quiet and in a safe neighborhood. What more can you ask.
Marcia was a great host and picked us and dropped us at the bus station. Would definitely recommend.
Absolutely wonderful experience to stay at Marcia and Richie Brooks home. Prompt response to any personal need and request, very clean house, great location and family-like home environment made my short visit very pleasurable.
More over - breakfast is included, room and bed are very comfortable, full package of TV programs, private bathroom is spacious and equipped, nights are quiet, neighborhood is safe , parking spot for car.
Will recommend to all of my colleagues and friends.
Nice area and a beautiful house.
Marcia and Richard were nice and friendly.
The room was nice and clean.
We had a nice stay but too bad that the wifi didn't work when we were there.
I recommend this place.
I am a proud Jamaican, and have worked in tourism for over twenty years. My husband and I are now tour operators who take guests who visit our country all over the Island. We are very patriotic and love to show off our beautiful country. We love to meet people from all over the world where we can share culture and other interest. Love reggae music and eco-tourism.
