Relax poolside or wander our 17 acre farm. Located on Jamaica's south coast, five miles outside Black River, capital of St. Elizabeth, Jamaica's bread-basket parish and home to YS Falls, Appleton Rum Tour, Black River Safari, Galleon Beach Fish Sanctuary and rustic Treasure Beach. Transportation available. A true Jamaican welcome and "country" hospitality awaits you!

De ruimte
The house at Ankobra has three bedrooms, three baths, a complete kitchen, large living room, a screened porch, pool and pool deck. Our new 3-room Casita offers privacy and has two beds (see separate listing). There are huge mango and cashew trees planted in the late 1800s, a variety of local fruit trees, hard wood (lumber) trees and over two hundred coconut trees (mostly young suckers). It has been several years since we retired from being a Foreign Service family and moved here to create our rural homestead. We've planted vegetables and other crops- peanuts, papaya, watermelons, bananas, pineapples, citrus, other tropical fruits and ornamental trees, while our chickens give us fresh eggs daily. We're a couple kilometers from Galleon Beach, where you can swim or take an excursion on a motorized canoe with a guide from the fish sanctuary. If you enjoy hiking, the nearby hills provide magnificent views over the parish and the Caribbean Sea.

Toegang voor gasten
Except for the master bedroom/bath all other rooms of the house and the terrace are available to guests. There are paths for those who love to run, walk. Waking up with the sun is my favorite thing to do; the air is the freshest at that time of day!

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
Although St. Elizabeth is a rural parish, Black River, the capital, was the first to have electricity, the first motor car, and a very active natural port a couple centuries ago! It is a very old town, and looks it! There are a few buildings like the Court House and a few Georgian houses from the plantation era that are privately owned and interesting to see. A historic tour of the town is available. The sublime YS Falls, 20-minutes away, sits on a large cattle estate and is open daily to the public; it has a zip line for the adventurous. Several tour operators offer excursions up the gentle and picturesque Black River, which drains the largest freshwater morass on the island and is home to many species of birds, not to mention the crocodiles your guide might introduce you to! Pelican Bar, built on a reef by a local fisherman, can be reached by boat in about ten minutes. For a memorable experience, try one of their fried fish and a Red Stripe while sitting a few hundred meters off shore! Quite the watering hole to watch the sunset! A beautiful drive into the foothills of the Cockpit Country will bring you to the cane fields and distillery of Appleton Estate, birthplace of Jamaica's finest rum. We've mentioned some highlights, but beautiful St. Elizabeth offers a whole lot more. Come and find out for yourselves!

Kilmorey, Saint Elizabeth Parish, Jamaica

Ankobra is unique! It is the result of our vision for our lives post-Foreign Service. It is still a work in progress but we believe that it is the ideal place for a family of four, for couples, for anyone interested in exploring the real Jamaica and for those looking for an alternative to the "all-inclusive" resort lifestyle. A Red Stripe beer or a Guinness stout, can be had at one of the local bars or from our refrigerator at Ankobra. A few restaurants in the Black River vicinity offer fish and seafood and other Jamaican dishes, but you may prefer to remain at Ankobra and be tempted by one of Sheryn's delectable meals.

I'm a down-to -earth mother of two young adults and wife to the most loving easy going man you'll ever meet. I'm a Jamaican-American, Theater Professional and retired member of the U.S Foreign Service who enjoy travel, cultural diversity, languages, and people. I love exploring places off beaten paths, singing in and out of tune, dancing, gardening, tennis, yoga - I love [my] life! After years of living and raising our children overseas I returned home to St. Elizabeth, Jamaica where I was born many moons ago, to live off the land to try my hand at being a coconut farmer and to help in whatever ways I can to "give back" to the community that nurtured me so many years ago.

Tijdens je verblijf
Either Andy or I or both of us will be on hand to make your stay as hassle free as possible! We have been global nomads for the better part of thirty years and have seen a fair bit of this vast world so depending on where you will be visiting us from we might want to share and/or compare stories; perhaps you just prefer to be left alone and we can appreciate that too! We are your basic down-to-earth couple who enjoy art, sports, various cuisines, eating what we grow, current affairs, politics, farming. If saying Andy was at Woodstock and that both of us fell asleep in the wee hours of the morning on the grass at Reggae Sunsplash many years ago piques your interest, well it all happened! :-)
