Welcome to Lowie's Place, in sleepy Blackrock. Here you are in the real Jamaica, away from the tourist crowds but close to the bustling Port Antonio. We are renting out a newly built (July 2017) and roomy bungalow with a spacious patio with stunning views over the Caribbean Ocean. The bungalow is equipped with a queen sized bed, fridge and a kitchen.
“Great airbnb hosts Jessica and Jorgen. Superb place to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the noisy crowd in the city. Beautiful sunrise and sunset over sea. It allows one to be in touch with such pure and real form of nature. At Lowies bungalow you will get a sense of unblemished life and where Time seemed to stand still. Thanks to Ms. Pauline the cleaning lady and Lowie the rastaman (fantastic and unique house looking like a museum) for great hospitality. paints and brushes are available. We painted on stones we saw outside. This was quite relaxing. It was a great stay. We will certainly be back.”
Spacious air-conditioned one bedroom apartment.
“This place was a lot more fun and engaging than I wanted it to be. I was planning a very quiet time away that I could write my script and I did not. The community around the house is full of life and I took part in many fun activities. I went to the beach, I toured the Blue Lagoon, hang out at a local bar smoking weed (easily available in the area) and enjoyed Portland's famous jerk and I also went fishing with the neighbor Ossie. I wasn't expecting to take part in all these activities but I enjoyed them. The people in the neighborhood are very friendly and I always felt safe. I wished I had booked a longer stay. Hopefully next trip. If you take the Blue Lagoon tour make sure to ask for Ryan - one of the best rafting tour guides.”

“The house is, as described, a rustic museum with loads of creativity. Very clean and with all kind of details. I fell in love with its front porch and magical garden. It is worth a stay. Location is good, just 15 mins walk to Boston Beach, and a bit farther to Winnifred beach. Rass Royd, apart from a great artist, he is an excellent cook, he cooked delicious vegetarian meals for me and even did a dub session to entertain us one night. The only suggestion would be to put a lock in the room, that there wasn't because the room walls were textile. And that should have helped me, as I could not trust another guest who was staying at the place. However, Rass Royd made me feel safe. I would definitely would come back there.”
