Shi Shed! Africa Village, is an eclectic, chic, rustic and artsy, cabin. Named 'Shi Shed!' (Patois for She Shed). Built and transformed from upcycled, recycled materials and plenty of Mama Nature’s gifts, it is a one-of-a-kind, “she had a hammer, and a drill, and a saw...” creation of the host, Artistic Diva, Sharon. Rustic and luxurious, this creative haven is divine. Whimsically decorated with Sharon's original art and 'Hand-dyed With Love In Jamaica!' Adire fabrics, this cozy space sings, 'joy,' duetting melodiously with the sounds of the ocean.

Interaction with guests
I try to be there to greet my guests to welcome you get you situated and then leave you to do your thing. If you need assistance I am around on the premises. If not, I am easily accessible via phone, text, and email. I can arrange airport pick-ups, drop-offs and transportation for sightseeing tours all around the island.
