House Review | Travel Blog

Happy Sunday all,

This blog post I’m switching it up a bit. Prior to beginning this website, I loved and still do love to write reviews. Not just of companies but also places, so I decided to write this review of this home.

If you haven’t already, go back and read my post about my trip to Haiti, it was written in April. Surf Haiti Guesthouse is located in Jacmel, Haiti; I spent 3 days there back in March. Other than a few people, I didn’t share much information about this house for safety reasons, but now I’m able to share info about where I was. Perhaps this blog will help confirm someone’s desire to visit Haiti, or maybe there is someone who has never thought about visiting the island and sees this post and decides to go explore this beautiful country. 

This huge house, which I refer to as the tree house *insert smile*, is a three story home with the first and second level open to guest. There are also individual cottages available on the property. The home is managed by a French-man by the name of Chris. He was there to greet us and lives on the property, he was available the entire stay, but he gives guest their own privacy. I’ve never considered staying in a home that was solar powered before, but since staying at this home whenever I’m on Airbnb I actually look up homes that are more eco-friendly. I felt so comfortable staying here, from the owner, to the staff and the help I felt like I was home. The first night we didn’t know if we should sleep with the windows opened or not but we pretty much left them open afterwards. 

Surf lessons are also offered, which I opted out of doing this go round, but next time I’m definitely taking the lessons. There is a cool pool towards the food area, which recirculates the water in the pool in such an amazing way. If you don’t feel like swimming but want to enjoy the scenery there are some lounge chairs near the pool available for use. I would definitely stay here again!

Below I have included two links for you to find out more information on the home and hopefully book for your next trip to Haiti.
