1. Great Location! Clean and Neat with WiFi! 2. Walking distance to Magaritaville, good food and music! 3. Be ready to WALK up and down the hill if you’re into adventure but you also have an option to call ride provided by the owners list of Drivers. 4. Owners are easy to contact and very helpful. 5. Bring the OFF for mosquitoes in Jamaica, i made the mistake of forgetting mine. 6. Safe environment 7. Typical tropical housing - so no glass window panes like home in USA. But still comfy. Does have A/C but we were comfy with the ceiling fans only. 8. Very close to Dunns River Falls! 9 1.5 hrs from Montego Bay airport 10. We LOVE IT there!!
Stayed 3 nights in Mar 2020

4/5 Good

My stay started off bad with the checking in process, it seems as if the housekeeper and the security was not expecting me. Then the first night the electricity went away. After all that my stay was excellent. Ann Marie was a good host and she checked on us very regularly. I would recommend this place to anyone. Ann Marie explained to us what happened in the beginning and apologized then things got better.

5/5 Excellent

Very close to the Ocho Rios town and all the attractions. Apartment is clean and spacious. I recommend staying here

5/5 Excellent

Had a wonderful stay at this property. Apartment was neat, charming and well decorated. Kitchen was well equipped with more then enough pots/pans/dishes that were needed. The neighborhood was clean, quiet and within a great walking distance to nearby Margaritaville, beach and a ton of shops, stores places to eat and even a movie theater !! The host Ann Marie was not on site but she answered any questions or request we had VERY quickly via text and she had people on site to make sure we had whatever was needed. I cannot say enough great things about this place. I feel we lucked up because the price was more than reasonable for all that we got! The apartment was located on a mountain with plenty of trees so we always had a nice breeze blowing through. We could even see the ocean from our bedroom window. I would DEFINITELY stay here again or recommend this place to anyone.

5/5 Excellent

Great Apartment
The communication was 10/10. Ann-Marie always responded and was very helpful. The apartment is clean and a 10min wall from everything (beach, bars, restaurants and shops). I would definitely stay here again.
