Descripción

A very spacious private room in a eco-retreat bed and breakfast run by a local Rasta family. The property is located on the edge of stunning river! The perfect mix of rural charm and modern comfort. A nature lover's dream, with stunning views and fresh mountain pools on your doorstep!

Are you longing to chill out and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city? Relax in our stunning Guesthouse situated right on the waterfront! We are located in the charming mountainside town of Swift River, Portland. Swift River can be found within a 10 minute drive of Hope Bay and 25 minutes drive of Port Antonio. The area is named in honour of the large river which streams 'swiftly' through the town. The river flows directly from the western side of the world famous Blue Mountains, travelling down stream for more than 30 miles and joining the sea at Hope Bay. We are located right on the river banks, in fact we are the last inhabitants in town. After passing the Guesthouse, there are no neighbours or development, just an uninterrupted mountain path leading straight to Blue Mountain peak. Prepare to be enchanted by the misty blue greenness of the surrounding hillsides!

Walk a few footsteps from your room and jump in for a swim in the mountain river pools. We're located right on the edge of a mountain hiking trail which follows the river upstream straight into the jungle. Join in on one of our local farming excursions and discover the array of local flora and fauna. We can also arrange a guided tour of the surrounding mountains and those who are fit enough to make the journey can even climb 30 miles to the river's source in Blue Mountains! We also offer onsite Kemetic Yoga lessons- where guests can experience the rejuvenating powers of yoga in the most beautiful natural setting. There are weekly 'dances' in the village square, where guests can experience the rural Jamaican party scene with music, rum and lots of dancing.

The property has 4 large rooms and 3 are offered as guests rooms. All the rooms have comfortable double beds and fresh white bed linen. There is large modern bathroom and kitchen which is shared with other visiting guests. There are also common lounging areas with a variety of comfortable seating: a large patio at the front and a large balcony at the back. There is also a well furnished living room with sofas and a television. In line with the host families Rastafari faith the inside kitchen is an Ital (vegetarian) zone, though for the convenience of visitors,there is a separate outside kitchen which can be used to cook meat. The host lives in the property and is always happy to offer guided tours of the area and recommend local attractions and restaurants.

The neighbourhood is a small, peaceful and friendly farming village. There is much happening in terms of music and food festivals. Swift River is deeply rural and off the beaten path. Those who visit this riverside town will enjoy an authentic Jamaican experience. The local inhabitants are 95% farmers and the town is dotted with farming plots which sprawl across the surrounding hillsides. The majority of the community do not make a living from tourism and unlike in Jamaica's big resort towns, visitors will notice the absence of 'hustlers'. Nevertheless like most Jamaicans, the locals are fiercely proud of their cultural heritage and are always happy to engage with a friendly stranger who wants to learn more about their customs and traditions. Within 5 minutes walk, there are a few small shops where guests can purchase groceries and a popular 'cook shops' where guests can sample authentic local dishes. Swift River is a pretty little mountain side community which is perfect for nature lovers and those are seeking a a 'private get away'.

The neighbourhood is served by many taxis and buses and trips can also be arranged with the property's host. The retreat's main selling point is its exclusively tucked away location way up in the hills, right by the river.And although we try our best to provide clear directions, our very rural location means that some guests find it a little tricky navigating their way up to us. Please do not hesitate to ask for further directions by calling if you get lost along the way! If you do not feel confident making your own way up from Hope Bay, the host will be more than happy to come and meet you! Once you arrive to our locations, your drive will be more than worth it!

Please note that any overnight visitors or extra guests must be arranged with the host in advance. The house is beautifully decorated and kept, please respect it by keeping it nice and tidy. Please also respect the vegetarian zone in the main kitchen.

I'll start by saying pick a dry time of year as the river was hit with a lot of rain before we arrived and we couldn't get up the mountain. Once we arrive though, wow! The river and the property is spectacular, you really have to experience it yourself. Laaji and family were all so lovely and made us feel right at home. It is quite a fair way up the mountain so factor that in if you need/want to go into town or other places it's a bit of a drive. Definitely worth it though

Wir hatten wirklich wundervolle Tage bei Tulla & Laaji und wenn man einen kleinen Einblick vom authentischen, gastfreundlichen Jamaica haben möchte, ist man hier genau richtig! Die beiden waren stets hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend und Tulla's Essen war einfach himmlisch lecker und absolut zu empfehlen. Unser Zimmer sowie auch der Rest der Unterkunft waren sehr sauber und man fühlte sich auf jeden Fall sicher. Aber das unbeschreiblichste war die umgebende Natur! Alleine an einem Fluss mitten im Urwald, ohne Massentourismus zu relaxen und zu schwimmen wird einer, der wirklich unvergesslichen Momente unseres Urlaubs bleiben. Vielen Dank nochmal für alles und wir kommen gerne wieder! ;-)

As beautiful as the pictures are, they don't capture the true beauty and uniqueness of this paradise. If you are looking to relax and connect with nature this is the place! Laaji was a wonderful host, really chill but welcoming and a great conversationalist about his farm and plants. Karen makes delicious fresh meals and the few people that we ran into were all very nice. As animal lovers we were happy to also spend time with a couple friendly dogs and a kitten. Our room was clean and cozy. The trail hike is amazing with lots of flowers, mushrooms, birds and butterflies. The Swift River is both rejuvenating and relaxing with lots of deep pools. The meditative landscape gave us renewed energy and we look forward to returning soon. This was a highlight of our trip to Portland.

This is such a special place in the mountains. I loved the tranquility and the starry skies. The food is delicious and the river is beautiful. I was so glad I made the effort to get there. This place is really one in a million.

The power and beauty of Mother Nature greets you every morning at this riverside retreat. You are 5 mins from the riverside with plenty of places to dip in. The river flows strongly first thing in the morning. You can follow the goat track to walk high up the mountain side as the river winds around. You are greeted by Laaji's wonderful pets who are full of Jamaican character - cool and laid back. Positive family vibes fills the retreat. The views from the retreat are stunning. The ital recipes were delicious along with blue mountain coffee. The room and bathroom is very clean. A precious treasure in Portland for those who wish to be off the grid and connect with the goodness of Nature. In the end we didn't want to leave, the 3 nights was too short.
