The space
Grassroots is located on the main road which runs through Oracabessa, a small town on the north coast of Jamaica, about 25 minutes from Ocho Rios. There is one studio apartment with high ceilings and a small skylight, a large veranda, and private kitchen and bathroom facilities. It has two single beds which can be pushed together. There is also a cottage tucked away in the back of the property with a double bed, little kitchen with a hotplate, cooler, and an indoor and outdoor shower. A Jamaican woman will cook Jamaican vegetarian food and fish, if desired. $20 extra for 2 meals a day. A 15 minute walk to the sea!

Guests can expect a peaceful, clean environment with good Jamaican vegetarian food (and fish if desired). There is an artist's studio in the center of the yard. The sea is nearby and there are two or three restaurants in the town of Oracabessa, and many varied restaurants in Ocho Rios (25 minutes away by car). There are Indian, Italian, Greek and of course Jamaican, restaurants in Ochie and its environs. Ochie also has an aquarium where you can swim with the dolphins, a movie theatre, and often hosts various musical events. In the town of Oracabessa, there is James Bond Beach which frequently hosts performances of major Reggae and Jazz musicians.

If you do not rent a car, you can still get around with public taxis and buses although you might have to squeeze up a bit.

Guest access
Free Wifi , pebbled and sandy beaches along with cooking facilities or Jamaican home-cooked meals.
