About the neighbourhood
Our guest home is built on top of Mount Salem, so there’s always a cool breeze and views from our roof deck and verandas, overlooking Montego Bay, the ocean, and mountains. Reggae music is usually wafting through the air from the nearby corner of indoor markets, takeout food, and other local neighborhood services. It’s just a short drive from the airport, the “hip strip” for dancing, shopping, and beaches, the straw market for local crafts and clothing, the experience of downtown and suburban health food store, pharmacies bookstores, and large supermarkets with many brands you would see in the U.S.

Montego Bay is the second largest city in Jamaica and preferred Caribbean destination. It's1 hr to Negril, 2 to Ocho Rios, 3 to Kingston.
Getting around
We'll assist you with transportation--either we'll transport you or recommend others we know.
Car not needed
How to get there
We'll be glad to pick you up at the airport $20 (1-2) then $10 each additional, as well as take you back at the end of your amazing stay. Just let us know when you're arriving.
