“Mountain-side Cabin in Jamaica / Great for rustic comfort”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Mango Ridge is a hidden spot in the village of Port Antonio. It lies off a road, up a gap, up a series of narrow concrete stairs, on the side of a mountain. The view of Port Antonio and the Caribbean from my upstairs bedroom was striking. The cabin was clean and two-storied with a nice mini-refrigerator and two portable fans. You will need the mosquito net. Mike was an attentive host. I appreciated his willingness to give quick advice for food and directions. Piggy's little shack was the best jerk I had on the entire island, including the places in Boston Bay.

Port Antonio is not really a tourist destination and you must be ready to navigate Jamaican villages and ask for lots of help from local folks.

“Bamboo Cabin (The Best View in Town!!)”
Reviewed 3 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

people found this review helpful

Bamboo cabin at Mango Ridge was one of the highlights of my girlfriend and I’s 10 day trip to Jamaica. The cabin is conveniently located - a 10-15 min walk from your door to the center of town and where you pick up the route taxis. Michael was a great host with very helpful information about the town and surrounding area – this helped make us much more comfortable with our navigation of the city – which helped us enjoy our time there that much more. Definitely ask him to point you in the direction of Piggy’s (best jerk/sauce in town - maybe all of Portland).
The Cabin itself is privately tucked away up on the hillside providing you with probably the best views of Port Antonio you’ll experience (The pictures of the view are accurate but just don’t do it justice). It’s furnished with everything you would need for a stay anywhere from 2 days to a week or more. (Although I could do without one, of both of the two chairs, in the bedroom in exchange for a few deeper stacked shelves for clothes). To be honest most of my time though was spent outside on the deck, relaxing in the chair or hammock, enjoying the sights and sounds of the beautiful city below and the beautiful lush canopy the cabin is surrounded by. As others have mentioned the climb up can be challenging if you aren't in at least avg shape – but just take your time and enjoy the reward of the view when you arrive – it makes it all worth it. The outdoor shower (one of my favorite things of the whole trip) is a welcomed amenity at the end of hot day exploring and the climb up. There is an indoor shower (although it didn’t have a shower head at the time), but even if it did I wouldn’t have used it and given up the unique experience of taking in the view while using the outdoor one. One other small amenity that may seem trivial to some that I thoroughly enjoyed – was the radio that Michael had already turned on for us when we arrived. If we were there – we had it on. It is a small thing – but having it on helped us really feel like we were connecting with the area and it’s people better through listening to the music – the talk shows and other programs. If you are looking for a place close to the center of town without being right in it, a place that allows you to relax and take in amazing views of the entire area, and a host with a lot of knowledge and experience of the town – then this place is for you.

“A home way from home”

Mango Ridge was the first place we examined in Port Antonio and it was the only place we needed to see. It isn't often that you decide with finality that a place is perfect for you before you see it in its entirety; our prescience was largely the result of a slow and beautiful ascent into a tranquil yet lively green topography. Hundreds of steps and sweat beads later, we were welcomed by Michael, who turned to be an extremely helpful, welcoming and amiable host.

Our cabin was surprisingly spacious and loaded with all of the amenities you could need: a kitchenette, gas stove, insect repellent, running water, fan, fridge and-our favourite-a turkish style bathroom with walls that you could paint on. Overall, the Mango Ridge is one of the most memorable places I've had the pleasure of staying in. Michael was a fantastic guide and gave us all the information we required on things to do and see in town and the surrounding areas. This is a place I do not hesitate in recommending to anyone with the good sense to immerse themselves in something other than the prosaic accommodation on offer in the modern world.

As a 28-year-old female traveling solo to Jamaica, I was a little nervous. But the beautiful Mango Ridge cottage beckoned to my soul, so I went. It was a good choice, too. The sunrise view was unlike anything I have seen before. And the people of Mango Ridge are some of the most hospitable and welcoming I have met. I got to know several of the younger family members throughout my stay and my trip is memorable because of the adventures we went on together. Port Antonio as a place is quiet and small, with a rich history (ask about Errol Flynn). Plenty of delicious fruit in the markets and the vegan cafe is a must visit.

Michael's cottages are really fun and interesting places. We stayed in the Bamboo cottage which was spacious, clean and good kitchen facilities. The balcony and views were great and the outdoor shower was fun too!
Port Antonio is a great place to spend time, with some cool bars and friendly locals. I can see why Michael has been there for so long.
Michael was a very chilled guy and very helpful during our stay there.
Would recommend.
