This charming hand built wooden home is nestled among terraced gardens and surrounded by jungle near the top of Kentucky Mountain. Be enchanted by the quiet solitude and intimate jungle setting with stunning views of the sunset off the private veranda. When the need for adventure or change of scene arises you can easily travel down to beautiful Bluefields beach or enjoy shopping and sightseeing in nearby Savanna La Mar.

المسكن
After ascending the primitive winding mountain road to 2500 ft you walk down a short jungle path to this brand new private cottage. It was built by hand using Jamaica’s National Tree, the Blue Mahoe hardwood for exclusive use by guests and visitors. Sleep like royalty on the Queen size pillow top mattress with crisp 100% cotton percale linens. Climb the spiral staircase to your private veranda overlooking the lush garden. Dine on the patio at sunrise/sunset for stunning views. It’s a truly beautiful and peaceful jungle cabin.

...relax, unwind, rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit in the beautiful mountains of Jamaica. Experience the "real" Jamaica at an 100% Jamaicain owned and operated guest house. The "Blue Mahoe "cabin was built with native hardwoods for our visitors from around the globe as well as locals wishing to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Very reasonable rates ie... less than $50 usd per night for double occupancy. Catered Organic Meat or Plant Based (Vegan) and vegetarian meal plans available for only $25 a day which include breakfast and dinner with fresh fruit and organic coffee that is grown on the land surrounding the retreat.

Private Charter taxi service from Montego Bay Airport (MBJ) to Mel's Botanical for less than $100 usd. Special discounts for round trip transportation. Custom designed chartered tours around the island by local expert from $100 dollars a day. (YS Falls, Bamboo Ave, Pelican Bar, Negril, Ricks Cafe)

The public beach called "blue fields"is less than 5 miles away and it can be reached by guided tour for less than $25 usd through the mountains or on your own via route taxi for $250 jmd. ( you will have to do some walking as the route taxi continues on towards Sav. ) At the beach you will find local vendors selling food, cold beers and rum punch if you wish to eat while enjoying the beach. Mel can pack you a picnic lunch if desired.

While at Mel's you will awaken to the sounds of nature and be immersed in local community life if you wish or you may choose to be left alone to alone to enjoy a self guided meditative retreat. The choice is yours, we are happy to accommodate you what ever your needs may be. We understand how hard folks work to afford a vacation and we want to be sure that you have the best time with us and will work with you to be sure that we meet and or exceed your expectations. The outdoor shower is heated by the sun and is just down the spiral staircase near the cabin.The bathroom toilet and sink are just steps from your bedroom. The cabin is also outfitted with a small mini fridge and freezer to keep your fresh press juices and beers cold. A flatscreen TV with local channels and DVD player with selected movies and games are available for your use or bring your own favorites...if you would like us to remove the TV before you arrive, just let us know and we can remove it.

Reviews:

"THIS IS A TEN-STAR-RATING! what a place!!!
first of all: mel is a wonderful host, very very kind and warm hearted. she took us for a nature walk and showed us her beautiful property. there are some nice spots, from where you can view a big part of westmoreland. she also introduced us to her family, they all live in kentucky on the same hill, all lovely people! everything is so green, blooming and living, hummingbirds fly around your head.
we stayed 3 nights in the blue mahoe cabin, it has a fantastic view over the natural garden. it also has an outdoor toilet on the same level and an outdoor shower on the ground level, both built perfectly, big up terry the carpenter!
we used mel's kitchen to cook our own food, but you should definitely try mel's breakfast and dinner, she is wonderful chef as well. ;-)
we will come back to this little paradise in the hills.
thanks mel for everything, it was so nice to meet you, keep doin your thing, you couldn't do it any better! all the best, one love
alex and jakob from germany "

24 miles from Negril = 45 min drive
34 miles from Treasure Beach = 1.5 hour drive

Most all of my guests opt for the private airport transport. It’s stress free, your vacation starts as soon as exit customs. Your dollars support the local community of Kentucky. I’m happy to arrange that for you. Just let me know, right away so I can confirm the booking with my driver.

My driver will be waiting for you with a “Mel’s Botanical Retreat” sign once you exit the MBJ Airport doors.

$ Route Taxi/Coaster Bus system
(experienced JA travelers w/no luggage)

$$ Knutsford Express (check their website for fees)

$$$$ Rental Car


Do I need a 4x4 to get up the mountain?

Our guests have made it to Mel’s without a 4x4, it depends on your driving experience and comfort. We suggest Pat’s Rental Car, a Jamaican owed father and son business in Savannah-la-mar. They provide free delivery of the rental to the airport so you are enjoying your vacation almost immediately after exiting customs. Challis rental or Efay in Montego Bay are also locally owned rental car companies that have off site from the MBJ airport reasonable rates.

Scooter and motorcycle rentals are available in Negril.

Hello or as we say in Jamaica "WahGwaan ". I was born and raised on this beautiful mountain, 2500 feet above the Caribbean Sea. When I was younger, nothing thrilled me more than to walk down to Bluefields Beach with my mother, father and 7 brothers and sisters when visitors from abroad would come to stay at my fathers coffee farm. We all loved buying ice cream from the man with his igloo cooler strapped to the back of his peddle bike. I'm passionate about many things but my top three include meeting and hosting guests and visitors from around the world, my amazing daughter, Kiara and of course, gardening. In 2017 I began offering my personal home to visitors. This home has been in my family for many generations, in 2015 I started renovating and expanding it to include three verandas, electricity & indoor plumbing. In 2018 we added “the blue Mahoe” a romantic cabin overlooking the gardens. In 2019 we added the “tree likkle birds” with a panoramic view of the mountains and sea. Many people come here as visitors and leave as friends. Come visit us, we would love to show you our likkle piece of "paradise". One Love, Mel
