Likkle Paradise is a charming home located across from Long Bay beach in Portland, Jamaica. The home has been operated partially as a guesthouse for over 30 years, making it one of the oldest in operation in the area. It has had honorable mentions in various international guides and other publishing about Jamaica.
The owner in particular; Ms. Herlett Kennedy -has been deemed as the most welcoming and hospitable individual you have yet to encounter. She is very keen on ensuring that all guests have good reasons to become repeat visitors.
The home comprises of an upper and a lower level:
-The lower level is a suite all to itself; a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchenette and a verandah surrounded by a garden. It does not share any facilities. This is a very private setting, you can hear the waves but a sea-view is only two steps outside your verandah.
- The upper level is divided into two sections; the owner's residence and the available to rent bedroom, bathroom and private verandah. This section for rent has the most spectacular sea-view of all the rooms in the home. The private verandah is the most desirable place to relax after a day of swimming/exploring.
There is also a joint sea-view wifi equipped hangout area inclusive of chairs and a hammock - ideal for relaxing, eating, taking in the view, or whatever else your heart desires.
The amenities provided are pretty standard of Jamaican guesthouses whereby all bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen areas have the necessities for any length of stay.
We do however strive to be the cleanest, safest, most hospitable, relaxing and welcoming place for you to enjoy. Fresh towels and linens are provided prior to your arrival and every few days.
Situationally, we are nestled at the foothills of the Blue Mountains. Nearby attractions include Long Bay Beach, Boston Bay Beach, Boston Jerk Center, Winnifred Beach, the Blue Lagoon, San San Beach, Reich Falls, and the Rio Grande River.
Transportation in and around the area is a matter of simply standing by the road and as we say in Jamaica 'flagging' a taxi to get you to where you need to go. There are also services available in the nearby area such as private day charters at negotiated rates.
The closest airport is Norman Manley Airport in Kingston (KIN) which is approximately 60 miles or almost 2.5-3 hours away. The drive is along the coast and is quite scenic especially immediately approaching Long Bay. We are very proud of the place we have been privileged to call home.
Whenever you are ready to visit - please give us a call or email. If you are already in town - please feel free to drop in to inquire whether there is current availability. Upon arrival you are sure to hear Ms. Herlett say "Welcome...rest yourself and relax. Let me know if you need anything."
Until you get here "walk well" (take care).
