We had an excellent time at the Blue House! The rooms are georgeous, the house beautifully decorated, pool is great and much care and attention is obviously paid to the landscaping with abundant flowers and hummingbirds.
This bed and breakfast offers incredible breakfasts and dinners - absolutely exquisite food! Either traditional Jamaican or Chinese. Rum punch is great too!
Elise is wonderful host and you will learn a lot about Jamaica during afternoon and after dinner chats. The personalized, culturally oriented tours she offers also make the stay special. One day we visited a park on the west side of town (forgot the name) and hiked up to headwaters of the river where you can swim in a 12 foot deep pool. Unlike the popular and crowded Dunn's falls, we had the entire paradise to ourselves ... We then went to Scotchies for the best of Jerk.
Reggae beach, just minutes from The Blue House was the most beautiful beach we visited on our entire trip (from Port Antonio to and Ochos area).
We stayed two nights of our honeymoon at the Blue House and loved every peaceful moment.
(Recommended reading while travelling in Jamaica - "The True History of Paradise" by Margaret Cezair-Thompson. This jewel of a novel really gives you an understanding of the history and a taste of the country's unusual cultural legacy.)
One more note - we just booked hotels as we went, moving every 2-3 nights. Another hotel booked our stay at Blue House for us but we later learned this hotel takes a very large percent as finder fee. Alise and her family deserve every cent - book yourself instead of through a third party.
