Excellent! My husband and I stayed at Lime Tree Farm for 2 days in October this year. The brilliance of this place is its location – a coffee plantation, high in the Blue Mountains. The roads through the mountains to get to the farm are difficult in places but well worth the effort and the owners will meet you on the way to bring you up the last part. It is an unassuming place which in my mind is a positive. The rooms are large and clean and have amazing views – the mountain side dropped away near our front door. We could sit on our terrace and drink coffee that had been grown on the farm while watching hummingbirds feeding on the flowering bush within 4 feet of our seats – amazing! Dinner is served at a large table, open to the outside and looking out over the mountains while eating Suzie’s wonderfully tasty Jamaican food – one of many highlights of our stay. My husband is a keen birdwatcher and Roger arranged for a guide to show us where to find some of the endemics. I recommend this place very highly for independent travellers who want to be away from the touristy areas and are prepared to make the effort to see something special.
