Your host

My name is Gisela Braun, I’m from Germany and moved to Jamaica in 2016. I wanted to escape the rainy and cloudy weather in Germany. Therefore I settled down in Belmont, Westmoreland a tranquille and quiet area here in the southwest coast of Jamaica.

My dream was to create a place where you can relax and live in harmony with the nature. From neighbours and locals I have learned how to grow fruits and vegetables properly and how to prepare and process all the exotic fruits. Since I’m living here I’ve had the chance to get to know the real Jamaica and I would like to share the Jamaican way of life, the diversity of nature and culture with my guests.
