Cheri and Jah B (Toney) are two of the most warm and welcoming hosts I have ever had the pleasure of staying with. Cheri greeted us with excellent conversation by asking about our trip and answering/discussing anything ranging from Jamaican culture to even her own personal experiences. This was supplemented by a very thorough series of informational sheets she had written about the area, places of interest and basic facts. She gave us a tour around the house and sat outside on the patio with us during the sunset. Toney cooked us an amazing breakfast next morning before taking us to the airport. The only shame of it all was that we stayed only the last night of our trip. If you are touring around the entire country, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND STAYING WITH CHERI ESPECIALLY AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR TRIP. I say this because it would have been extremely valuable to have carried all her knowledge with us during the trip. Both she and Toney will make you feel comfortable, and educate you on the ways of culture, and give you a proper introduction to the sweetness of the Jamaican lifestyle.

Kyle, You and your friends were so great to spend time with. Thanks so much for choosing us. We too wished that we would have had more time with you. I loved hearing about your journey through Jamaica, especially your dramatic climb to the top of the Blue Mountains (and back down again) and your awesome, personalized experience at the beautiful Blue Hole. I was delighted to learn that you were all mural painters (we being from Philadelphia, the city of murals), and I wish you could paint a mural on our wall. We're so appreciative of your review. What an engaging time we had, even though it was short. Do come back soon! One love, Cheri and Jah B

Cheri and Jah B definitely gave us a great experience during our stay and gave us some amazing tips on some places to go, explore, shop, and best beaches to go to. Cheri has amazing stories to share as well! We really enjoyed our stay! From check in to check out we felt welcomed and the communication was never a problem. They offered to pick us up from the airport and back to the airport. (For a small fee) Which was perfect for us! Thanks again Cheri and Jah B much love and blessings to you both!

Keenan, Angel and Andre -- You were so fun. Thanks for choosing us to celebrate Angel's birthday. We loved being part of the surprise and getting the cake for your surprise. Captain Andre was the greatest pilot ever. Hope you fly here again soon. Keep in touch and let us know the highlights with your growing family.

I'm not gonna make this long. Jamaica is a wonderful place. Pristine beaches, mountains and beautiful waterfalls. Staying with Cheri and Tony allows you to experience the people and culture that goes with that, firsthand. Not just as hosts but genuinly as a family that cares and guides you throughout your stay. It's simple. Look at the reviews. Enjoy your stay with these wonderful people. I truly did. Danny

Cheri and Rasta Tony are the best! They were very chill but attentive. Me and my boyfriend don't eat fish, so Tony was kind enough to make us a vegan version of Jamaica's traditional ackee and saltfish breakfast. It was so yummy!! Do have some meals there,Tony is a great chef. Also they leave some great resources in your room which we found very helpful,maps and phone numbers to taxis and such. The house isn't on the hip strip but it's not hard to get there, so don't let location deter you. A little walk and you get to a corner with lots of taxis, from there take a $200 ride to hip strip. Great food, great hosts, and a beautiful home with lots of veranda space. I look forward to not just visiting Mobay but visiting Cheri and Tony again! Beautiful people❤️ enjoy Jamaica!

In 1979, I visioned I was to have a guest house in Jamaica for retirement. I came looking in 1994 and met Toney--we married in 1996 and raised two awesome sons in Philadelphia, then built the villa. I'm publishing a book about this 'fairy tale' called "Loving to be WE." I was raised on a farm in Kansas, was Deputy Director of Mental Health in Philadelphia, then co-founder and director of a university-based multicultural training and research institute. I now am a writer and Editor of FunTimes Magazine celebrating the African and Caribbean Diaspora. I'm a certified Holistic Cancer Education Counselor (having helped my body rebalance and overcome a stage 4 lung cancer diagnosis in three months!) I enjoy meeting people and showing them around Jamaica--talking about the culture and history; traveling; writing and keeping up on healthy living, politics and current events. I am blessed to have an amazing, loving husband, and to be living my dream life! I look forward to meeting you! Soon come....
