Real Jamaican living Experience. Neighbor to the famous Golden Eye Resort. It is walking distance to James Bond beach, supermarkets, 24 hr variety store & has easy access to public transport .


Grassroots is located on the main road which runs through Oracabessa, a small town on the north coast of Jamaica, about 25 minutes from Ocho Rios. There is one studio apartment with high ceilings and a small skylight, a large veranda, and private kitchen and bathroom facilities. It has two single beds which can be pushed together. There is also a cottage tucked away in the back of the property with a double bed, little kitchen with a hotplate, cooler, and an indoor and outdoor shower. A Jamaican woman will cook Jamaican vegetarian food and fish, if desired. $20 extra for 2 meals a day. A 15 minute walk to the sea!

Guests can expect a peaceful, clean environment with good Jamaican vegetarian food (and fish if desired). There is an artist's studio in the center of the yard. The sea is nearby and there are two or three restaurants in the town of Oracabessa, and many varied restaurants in Ocho Rios (25 minutes away by car). There are Indian, Italian, Greek and of course Jamaican, restaurants in Ochie and its environs. Ochie also has an aquarium where you can swim with the dolphins, a movie theatre, and often hosts various musical events. In the town of Oracabessa, there is James Bond Beach which frequently hosts performances of major Reggae and Jazz musicians.

If you do not rent a car, you can still get around with public taxis and buses although you might have to squeeze up a bit.

Rani is the owner of this secluded place in the middle of trees and humming birds. She is a wonderful artist. Asha, who is helping everybody out, always busy, intelligent and peace loving, a great organiser! You are the salt of the earth! Your nice children, thank you for your genuine friendliness! We also loved James Bond beach, and, thanks to Asha, we got to visit the Sun Valley Farm, so interesting and really special! We wish you all the best! Christina Jonas and Maria

We were booked for the studio however one day before arriving we received a message explaining the studio would be occupied as "a guest from the back cottage would be moving to the studio." And would we mind the back cottage? Being a fair person I messaged back saying as long as it was on par with the studio we were OK with that. When arriving we were told the cottage is more private for couples... The place was private but dirty and definitely not maintained well and perhaps not even used. During our stay we saw no occupants in the studio. Points of interest included a dirty fridge, cockroaches hiding behind books, rips in the screening for any other bug to enter, no WiFi access (given in the studio), dog feces to dodge each morning and braying goats to wake you at 5-6 am courtesy of the neighbour's. We toughed it out having no other options during holiday dates and met up with Rani only when checking out. A pleasant women to speak to about the issues I felt slightly bad at pointing out these, along with other issues. When I asked if the cottage was cheaper and she replied Yes, I felt this feeling subside. We paid for the studio price but we're given the cottage...hmm, Sorry Rani but I will not be recommending Grassroots.

Ответ от Rani:
In spite of original double booking mistake, when the guests arrived both spaces were available, and the guests were given their choice of which one to take. They chose the back space themselves, and if they had any problem with their choice they could have communicated this to Jamilla and been moved there at any point during their stay. Asha always cleans the room fastidiously, and I must say that the feedback of dirtiness, I am sure is quite unfounded. Bugs will be found in any local Jamaican environment no matter how clean, unless you are staying in an exclusive antiseptic environment like an exclusive hotel. Wifi has often been only available in the middle art studio so guests have to come there to get it. It is no more available in the studio than in the back cottage. Asha gets up every morning at 5:30 am to clean up the dog poop but if the dogs happen to defecate again, we are so sorry but they are our protection and we give thanks for them. If these guests had only communicated their concerns to Jamilla or Asha, I am sure they would have been addressed to their satisfaction. Rani gave the impression that the price for both spaces was not the same but Jamilla informed her that since hot water was added to the back cottage and not the front, the price was the same then. Communication is key here, and the guests perhaps need to be more communicative to have a better experience.

We had a great time at Grassroots. The room was very big and clean with a huge selection of towels and shades. Also the huge area on the balcony was pleasant. The family was highly friendly and was always available for questions. Besides the awesome rest of the family Ras Ibrak showed us his pieces of art. The only downside was the fickle internet connection, although all in all good vibes and a great hostel.

We had a great time at grassroots, room was clean spacious and the huge terasse was perfect for candlelight dinners and breakfasts. The food was excellent and a nice change from the tourist stuff. We used the concrete jetty 2 minutes walk away. Snorkeling was greate near the reef 50 meters away. I highly recommend this place!! I took some pics, hope you use them to show all facilities better. We had earplugs at night, some traffic and dogs barking sometimes, but no problem.

Everyone at Grass Roots went out of their way to make sure we had a good time during our five days there. Thank you Asha for all the delicious Jamaican food. Thank you Jamilla for making sure we made it in ok and felt welcomed. And we were grateful we got to meet Rani and see her studio. The studio is spacious and has the bare essentials. It sits right next to a somewhat busy main road so it's very easy to get taxis. If it's a distraction for you, though, keep in mind that the sound of cars zooming by can be heard at most hours. We would stay here again. it was a perfect place to start our vacation in Jamaica.
