Location - Malvern

Interesting Fact

Malvern named after its counterpart Malvern, Worcester, in England, which is famous for the Malvern Health Resort. For a place in St Elizabeth (generally regarded as one of the hottest parishes on the island), Malvern has an unusually mild climate. Even on very warm days the temperature rarely averages more than 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It is for this reason that in the 19th century, the "Switzerland of the Caribbean" was used mainly as a health resort, the climate being a welcome change from the hot, swampy mosquito-infested areas in the Black River Morass.
Nestled high in the Santa Cruz Mountains 2300 feet above sea level, Malvern, is said to have one of the best climates anywhere on earth – dry, cool with crisp, unpolluted air and an unusually mild climate. Even on very warm days the temperature rarely averages more than 80 degrees Fahrenheit [27 degrees Celsius].

About the hosts

Rustic Haven is the pride and joy of Pauline and Dorrell who have dreamed, romanticise, planned and now a reality – of owning and running their guesthouse.

Living in the UK for more 45 years, their long term goal was to return to the place of their birth. Married with two daughters and a wealth of travelling experience they wanted to create and provide the opportunity for others to experience the experiences of Jamaica as we know and love it.

Rustic Haven is a small family-run Guesthouse where guests are treated like family. It is located in Malvern, in the parish of St Elizabeth, which is on the South West coast of Jamaica.
