Caribbean on a budget
1/6 Ital Rest Cottages, Jamaica
Overview: Each of the cottages at Ital Rest has two breezy bedrooms with private bathrooms, and terraces overlooking the Santa Cruz mountains and the sea. A kitchen means you can cook at home, and there’s a lovely Rastafari-style café serving wholesome vegetarian food. Hosts Frankie and Jeanne have created an atmosphere that lets modern stresses melt away (note that bedrooms are candlelit, with no electricity). Stay here and you’ll be getting a truly laid-back Caribbean experience in one of the loveliest parts of Jamaica.
