Red Shed is located on a working, family-run coffee farm in The Blue Mountains of St. Andrew, Jamaica. Owner and operator of the farm, Cecil Ward, is also an established photographer and artist and built the house with his father in 1986.
Red Shed's farm has been in operation since the mid-80's and grows some of the best coffee served around the world, Blue Mountain Coffee. The view, the mountain air, and the solitude make for a memorable escape.
Basic food amenities will be provided but you will need to bring all the necessary food and drink if you want to prepare your meals. The tap water is spring water so it is very safe to drink.
This is one of three units of The Red Shed. The family uses upstairs and the adjoining section below is rented.
Guests will have access to most of the property and a guided tour of the coffee farm can be arranged.
EITS Café and Restaurant is nearby for those who would like to eat out and mingle with other travelers from all corners of the world.
Interaction with guests
A family member will meet you upon arrival.
Other things to note
It is a working coffee farm, so you are likely to see some of the staff and pickers as they come and go.
Upon our arrival you will either be greeted by myself or Hugo who has worked with the family and on the coffee farm for nearly thirty years.
Although there isn't a cat who lives in the unit, there is one who lives in a neighboring house and may visit Red Shed from time to time.
Please be respectful of the house and be as tidy as possible.
