A very spacious private room in a eco-retreat bed and breakfast run by a local Rasta family. The property is located on the edge of stunning river! The perfect mix of rural charm and modern comfort. A nature lover's dream, with stunning views and fresh mountain pools on your doorstep!

The space
Are you longing to chill out and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city? Relax in our stunning Guesthouse situated right on the waterfront! We are located in the charming mountainside town of Swift River, Portland. Swift River can be found within a 10 minute drive of Hope Bay and 25 minutes drive of Port Antonio. The area is named in honour of the large river which streams 'swiftly' through the town. The river flows directly from the western side of the world famous Blue Mountains, travelling down stream for more than 30 miles and joining the sea at Hope Bay. We are located right on the river banks, in fact we are the last inhabitants in town. After passing the Guesthouse, there are no neighbours or development, just an uninterrupted mountain path leading straight to Blue Mountain peak. Prepare to be enchanted by the misty blue greenness of the surrounding hillsides!

Where you’ll be

Hope Bay, Portland Parish, Jamaica

The neighbourhood is a small, peaceful and friendly farming village. There is much happening in terms of music and food festivals. Swift River is deeply rural and off the beaten path. Those who visit this riverside town will enjoy an authentic Jamaican experience. The local inhabitants are 95% farmers and the town is dotted with farming plots which sprawl across the surrounding hillsides. The majority of the community do not make a living from tourism and unlike in Jamaica's big resort towns, visitors will notice the absence of 'hustlers'. Nevertheless like most Jamaicans, the locals are fiercely proud of their cultural heritage and are always happy to engage with a friendly stranger who wants to learn more about their customs and traditions. Within 5 minutes walk, there are a few small shops where guests can purchase groceries and a popular 'cook shops' where guests can sample authentic local dishes. Swift River is a pretty little mountain side community which is perfect for nature lovers and those are seeking a a 'private get away'.
