Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Robins Bay - Top Nutsfield

2 Bedroom, One Bathroom In Mixed Tropical Fruit Orchard With Spectacular Views

There’s always a refreshing breeze blowing off the caribbean sea. Here is a mixed tropical orchid on a hilltop down a road with no name just off the beaten track of jamaica. This is a rural community in the hills where you will experience genuine jamaican culture far from the hustle and hassle of the popular tourist zones. The people are friendly and sincere. Your host, gary, is a local farmer with an intimate knowledge of the immediate area as well as the many spectacular attractions around the island. He is also very adept at creating delicious meals from locally produced ingredients. Clean air, fresh water, tropical breeze, ideal climate, a cornucopia of tropical fruits and veggies, a spectacular view east of the northeast coastline, mountains and sea, pomegranate, sugar cane, banana, peace of mind…

The house is mostly wood with a concrete foundation with two bedrooms, a kitchen and bathroom. There is some privacy as the house is at the back of the property and plenty of shade from the enormous mango, almond, lime, plum, niesberry, jamaican apple and avocado trees. It is roughly an hour from kingston, 45 minutes from ocho rios or three hours from montego bay. The closest beach, long beach, is secluded and serene. In this region there are also spectacular waterfalls that you must hike through the jungle with a guide to find. At dusk the crickets and frogs begin their chorus and by day nightingales and doves carry the ambient tune. There is not really any dangerous wildlife here – just donkeys, goats, mongoose…this is the real jamaica. Enjoy fresh non-industrial food. This is jamaica unaltered and unplugged. Rich in sunshine, colour, flavour, and warmth.

About Tony Morrison

I was born and raised in Canada. My dad had left Jamaica and made a new life in Canada. As a young adult I was fascinated with the idea of traveling. Many people were welcoming and kind to me over the years in many different places. That experience has been powerfully enriching to me. As getting to know Nutsfield St. Mary's and the people there has been such a wonderful experience for me I am drawn to the idea of helping others get to know this location and it's inhabitants. This is truly an extraordinary unnoticed corner of Jamaica, close to many natural wonders in the perfect climate.

Tony Morrison purchased this cabin in 1972

Cute litle cabin, in pristine Jamaica

  • 5 out of 5
Overall my experience was amazing. Being skeptical of Jamaica's rumored danger I was pleasantly surprised to feel very comfortable in this cabin. Literally in the middle of the jungle, with spectacular ocean views I felt very relaxed and easily escaped the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The people are very kind and Gary's cooking is unique and exquisite. You can not get anything better than a meal cooked from veggies that were picked minutes before.

Although rustic, the property was clean and maintained. The beach was a short drive away and easily reachable by taxi (only 5 bucks!). However I enjoyed walking on foot and getting a feel for Jamaican life.

Gorgeous, Friendly, rustic getaway

  • 4 out of 5
This is a fantastic cabin if you want to experience the real, rural Jamaica. It's miles from tourists. Every tree on the property is a fruit tree. The neighbors stroll over to hang out, make sure you're well, and bring fresh fruit from other trees.

Glorious weather, this shack is in a remote, friendly village perched on a verdant mountain in banana groves overlooking Robins Bay.

Tony introduced us to Narval, a taxi driver who we hired to drive us around. He was a good driver and a fun friend for the week.

The cabin is at least a 20 minute drive from the beach, so that may not be great if you're looking for a beach holiday. The cabin was more rustic than we expected, with no hot water. We suggested they get a refrigerator, which they plan to do.

Tip: make sure Gary fixes several dishes including vegetables with each meal. He can do some great vegetable dishes. We loved the "breadfruit".

Overall, it was unforgettable and unique, but may not be for everyone.
