My cousin and I are Jamaicans and had never had a bed and breakfast experience, and our 3 night stay at Richard and Marcia's home was great! We loved the view and the cool breeze as we had breakfast on the verandah every morning.
They're great to talk with and Richard should have another hat on, that is a comedian. He is very hilarious. It was obvious from talking with Marcia that she has a huge, kind heart.
Their beautiful home is ideally located and it only cost $100 JA to catch a cab / taxi (just under $1 US) into town (Ochie).
We didn't do any tours with Richard, however, from talking with him, he knows our beautiful island so I would encourage anyone to go along for the ride (tour).
Until next time,
Excellent is the first word that comes to mind when I think of our overall experience at Marcia's bnb. From the rides to and from the airport, Marcia makes sure that your stay is a very exceptional experience.
We were skeptical at first since this was our first bnb. However, our minds were at ease the very second we met our host and hostess at the airport. The spacious room provided comes with a kitchen and living space. Any needs you may have are all met in a timely fashion. Excursions and even the grocery store are not too far from the bnb. All transportation is provided by Richard. They are honest people and always made us feel at home during our stay. We always felt safe on and off the premises. Richard even went the extra mile and got us the best exchange rate for our currency.
I would highly recommend Marcia's bnb to everybody. They made our vacation a very special and memorable one. Thank you Marcia and Richard!
Marcia e Richard sono stati molto d'aiuto. Richard e suo figlio ci hanno accompagnato in diverse escursioni nei dintorni di Ocho Rios. La camera è pulita e confortevole, ogni mattina abbiamo fatto colazione dalla loro bella terrazza. La location è comoda, a qualche minuto di auto dal centro. Se avete intenzione di andare a Ocho Rios decisamente vi consiglio di soggiornare qui!!
This was one of our favorite places to stay in all of Jamaica. Marcia and Richard are amazing and it was more like staying with good friends than a normal AirBnB room. We relaxed on the patio, enjoyed a beer and Jamacian stories and even ate fresh fruit from the property. The fan in the room was awesome! Would definitely stay here again.
Marcia and Richard were very welcoming and super friendly. They made sure we were comfortable. They have a beautiful home with lots of fruit trees around. Loved the warmth and coziness of this place as well as Richard's humor!
