Marica and Richard are wonderful people and great host! Breakfast was divine and our morning views were perfect. They were both very helpful and friendly. Communication was clear and getting rides from the home to places around the city was easy with the help of Marcia and Richard. We felt very comfortable at their home which is located in a village about a 20min walk from the main busy road. It was nice to experience Jamaica with real locals who know a lot about their island! Anything you need to know, just ask Marcia and Richard :)

We had a wonderful time with Marcia and her husband! We were only in Ocho Rios for 1 night, wishing we could have stayed there for a few more! We were driving to OR after arriving in Montego Bay and Marcia was very accommodating in meeting us late in the evening for check in. We had rented a car, but the house's location would have been tricky to navigate to at night, so we arranged to meet Marcia's husband at a gas station. Our room was in an area separate from the main house with our own bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. The A/C was not working, but the fans in the room worked just fine. The morning coffee and toast was a nice delight with a beautiful view of OR. They recently got a puppy and we had the pleasure of playing with him, so that was a huge plus! Marcia and I had a lot in common and I really hope to make it back to Ocho Rios again for an extended stay! It was about a 10 minute drive from Dunn River Falls and a few other attractions. Would highly recommend Marcia's lodging!

Me and a friend of mine stayed 2 weeks at Marcias and Richards home and it was so great! The room was nice and clean (Marcia even came after a week to clean it up again) and we had a perfect overview of the neighbourhood (which is great because there is always something going on)! The breakfast in the morning was always very good. They gave us almost every day a new "local" fruit to try and this was also the time we talked with Richard about our daily plans. In those 2 weeks we saw almost the whole island under the guidance of him. He is in tourism for over 30 years and has a new, very clean and air conditioned tour bus. So it is no problem to stay for a longer time at their house! If you want to spend the day at a beach nearby, he or Marcia took us there and picked us up in the evening. When you plan to do a daily trip further away, you will not regret to go with Richie! He is soooo informative, has a great sense of humor and knows everything about his island! You really get to know how local people in Jamaica live and after a few days you feel at home. So thank you again Marcia and Richard for 2 unforgettably weeks in Jamaica!! Best greetings Simon

Marcia and Richard are extremely lovely warm-hearted people. Above and beyond my expectations. First day I was lucky to join Marcia to volunteer with eye and ear check up of school kids. I loved this one of a kind experience with locals and would do it again. Their house is a masterpiece, I truly enjoyed being in it. Taxis to Ocho Rios is frequently passing by and you pay less than 1 us for it. Fruits are cheap and always at the market. Food is tasty and very affordable. There is an amazing wholesale shop for souvenirs, the only one for reasonable prices. Don't go to craft market. They fool you and give double-triple price. Don't go to the big clothes store right next to the clock downtown Ocho. The Chinese manager there unbelievably rude for no reason. Ask Richard about tours and sightseeing, he's great at it. Thank you again and tons of blessings for all your family

Ms. Marcia was very welcoming and sociable. Mr. Brooks took me to get some local food the first night and they both made my stay pleasant and relaxing. The area is lovely and quite close to downtown Ocho Rios with cabs passing by regularly.
