Me, Jamaica & Mr. Chu!

June 30, 2016


Earlier this year, I was itching for an escape from my grey NYC winter.  It was a brand new year, yet somehow I missed the part where I was supposed to leave all the major BS in 2015. It didn’t take long before I set my eyes on Jamaica (pre Zika hysteria) and found Mr. Chu’s place on Airbnb. By discovering this magical spot, I also found the lessons and light that inspired me to charge right into 2016. While I can’t fully express just how much Mr. Chu and his home really meant to me, the best I could do was leave him a gushing review. After all, in the travel arena, this is probably the equivalent to Midas gold. So here’s my Airbnb review (Yes. This is me. Quoting myself.):

“If you’re looking for an amazingly authentic Jamaican experience, quickly book with Mr.Chu so you don’t miss out on an opportunity of a lifetime! There aren’t enough dope words in Merriam-Webster to describe my dear Mr. Chu. However, compassionate, hilarious, wise, laid-back, accommodating and kind are just a few to start. He greeted me at the airport like family and it was the perfect beginning to an unforgettable trip. His home is LOVELY! It is clean and ridiculously spacious. Each room offers up tons of privacy with gorgeous ensuite bathrooms. The grounds are well cared for and the veranda makes for an awesome way to relax, sip on a Red Stripe while staring out onto the property’s stunning views of Montego Bay. Breakfast was another wonderful delight, as I ordered the callaloo and salt fish more than once. Yum! Mr. Chu offers up tours to some of Jamaica’s most popular sites, as well as a few that are off the beaten path. Do yourself a favor and definitely book one of these tours, Mayfield Falls was such a highlight! The strip is just a quick 20 minute walk from the house, and Doctor’sCave is another must see in Mo Bay. I really can’t thank Mr. Chu enough for helping me kick off 2016 in such a positive way. You know you’ve had one incredible experience when you leave the island with new family members!”

Thinking of a quick (and Zika sparse) Caribbean getaway? Hit up Mr. Chu and tell  him Modupe sent ya!
