The house was really beautiful and comfortable. We were well taken care of there. The solar energy was remarkable, that it lasted through the night even with the fans on! The walk to the beach looked slightly longer than we expected, but turned out that it was not bad. The exercise was good! And all the neighbors are really friendly. We were really happy to find such a nice relaxing place. Thank you Joan and Chris!
Chris was so helpful and flexible with our reservation. We were delayed two days due to difficulties with transportation in Haiti. Travels within the country is quite a challenge and costly and Chris was very accommodating. The Surf Guest House is located outside of Jacmel proper and requires a four wheel drive vehicle to make it up the dirt road. Chris met us at the start of this road and offered to take us up. Unfortunately our driver declined and we ran into some trouble. When we arrived late in the evening torches were lit around the property which created such a nice welcoming ambiance. Chris even provided a tent for our drivers as it was too late for them to make the treacherous winding mountain route back to Port au Prince. Though we entertained staying longer we could not as we were delayed two days. The staff was friendly and helpful. The landscape is simply spectacular. I regret we could not have stayed further. Such a nice hideaway from the touristy Jacmel! Highly recommended.
Haïti Surf Guest House is such a nice place to stay. The grounds are lovely and nicely designed and the house very comfortable and very inviting! Tasty breakfast. Christophe is a great help too. Highly commendable place to stay!
The team of the guest house thank you for your passage, it was a great time with you and hope to see you soon.
I was fortunate enough to spend 4 amazing days at the Surf Guest House this January. From the moment my group arrived in Jacmel we were made to feel intimately welcome by the group of people (around 3 or 4) that run the house. We had a breakfast of eggs, fruit and fresh juice prepared for us every morning (for a reasonable additional price) and were treated with warmth and respect throughout the day. Christophe (one of the native Haitians) spoke great French and acted as our guide to the area, even taking us by motorcycle through Jacmel and up the hills to the beautiful Bassin Bleu (which alone was worth the trip!). Christophe also arranged for our group to take surf lessons with some of the local Surf Haiti boys who were lots of fun and great instructors.
Any initial trepidation I had about being a tourist in Haiti was dispelled once we landed in the country. At no point did I feel unsafe or did I fear that my valuables were at risk. Chris (one of the French owners) also gave us great advice for finding some night life in Jacmel. Everyone we met in Haiti was welcoming and they inquired about our trip and wanted to know if we'd be back. I can say without a doubt that I will be travelling back to this amazing country the first chance I get, and I hope to stay at the Guest house again!
Peter, c’était un plaisir de vous recevoir, on vous attend déjà pour votre prochain passage en Haiti!
Super voyage ! La guest house est un super lieu , très beau et reposant! Un petit coin de paradis! J'Ai pu passer quelques jours avec les propriétaires, qui sont très sympas, et nous on fait découvrir Jacmel! J'ai partagé la maison avec d'autres personnes aussi en réservation, nous avons d'ailleurs fait quelque soirées plutôt sympas. tout était très convivial . Joan travaille directement avec des haïtien s du coin, un sert de guide et taxi moto ,qui nous a emmener tout les jours a des places différentes! Il nous a permis de ne pas être perdu, et le fait d'être en visite avec quelqu'un du coin rassure et permet d'aller a des places que sans lui nous n'aurions jamais pu connaître !Tout les matins nous avions notre petit déjeuner ( omelette très bonne!!!) Honnêtement un voyage rempli en émotion! A refaire!
Mon séjour à la surf Guest House a été fantastique .christophe est vraiment un gars extra et le site est merveilleux,on a une vue extra et la nature est belle ,un endroit parfait pour se reposer
Joan was great, and the was extremely helpful in arraigning a guide for my work, transportation details, and even where to eat. The man he hired as a cook made us fantastic breakfasts every day, Christophe was a great guide and looked after us, and the house was fantastic. Off the grid like most places I have been in Haiti, but his solar panels and batteries were great and we never ran out of power. I love this place, and will be back next year. My only regret was that we didn't have time to try the surfing.
