About This Listing
The Bohemian Lodge is the perfect space for large groups of 6 to 12 adults who need a safe, central quiet location with luxury amenities. The refurbished modern open plan kitchen with granite counter tops is gorgeous, it even has a swimming pool!
This is a large luxury duplex lodge. I live on the smaller side and the larger side is my short term rental property. At Bohemian Lodge your space has it's own main entrance and includes 5 bedrooms, 3 full sized and one half-bathroom in the exclusive neighbourhood of of Jacks Hill. It's located at the foot of the hill which makes it very accessible and close to shopping and restaurants.
You can expect clean tidy rooms that have beds, closets, bathrooms, fans, air conditioning (additional cost $30 per night for three of the five rooms) and hot water and internet service. There is a great swimming pool on the property that is well maintained. There is Cable TV and internet available in the living room.
The space accommodates up to 12 persons sharing 6 beds. If you have a larger group then we are happy to see how we can accommodate your group in the over 4000 available square feet of property in the rental unit.
You will have access to the rental property (the larger side of the duplex), all of the outside space as well as the pool which is only shared with the me over on the small side of the duplex. There is a washing machine in the house and a long clothesline in the backyard for drying clothes.
Interaction with Guests
I have minimal interaction with guests. I live in the small side of the duplex and will occasionally utilise the pool but I try to stay out of way when I have guests in the big side unless they really prefer to jnteract. During your stay the house is yours.
The neighbourhood is very residential and quiet. It's near two major supermarkets and a shopping mall (Loshusan Plaza). There are restaurants and bars also in Barbican square at the bottom of the hill (a seven minute walk).
Other Things to Note
This place is unique because it is very large, very spacious, and being offered at an excellent price.
No smoking inside the house.
Please notify if there will be parties or events so that we can notify the neighbours.
Please note A/C is an additional $30 per night due to the extremely high cost of energy in Jamaica.
Tarik was very accommodating, hospitable and super responsive. The description of the place was accurate, the photos are true to what the place looks like. The neighborhood is nice, safe and a central place to be when visiting Kingston.
Having quality speakers in every room was very nice (patio, kitchen, upstairs rooms, living room) and really helped create a great vibe while at the house and/or in the pool. Wifi is good and having a washing machine is also an asset. It was also an advantage to have a fully outfitted kitchen with utensils, plates, blender, microwave, stove with pots, great fridge, etc.
Only the upstairs rooms have air conditioning, but they work really well. The bathrooms downstairs are showers only, which helps if you have a disabled person with difficulty with tubs and stairs.
Great place for a family to stay at while in Kingston, Jamaica.
The Bohemian Lodge was exactly as described and matched the pictures perfectly. The house was very well maintained and it was a pleasure spending time there when we weren't out and about touring the island. We had a rather large group and there was plenty of space with more than enough beds to accommodate us all. Tarik was an excellent host. He was accessible and responsive. We felt safe and at home here. I look forward to returning to Jamaica in the near future and I will definitely stay at the Bohemian Lodge again! Thanks, Tarik!
Ive lived in Kingston for 6 months in 2007 close to the Bohemian Lodge, so Ive considerable experience with the area. This neighborhood above Barbican is great. High in the foothills, continual cooling breeze and very safe. The ample grounds of the property felt considerably more expansive and the clean pool was refreshingly inviting.
Also close to shopping for the obligatory supplies and restaurants. And relatively centered for the Strawberry Hill, Coffee plantations, Fort Charles excursions. Tarik is a gracious and personable host as was his helper Dennis who we shared fresh mangos with from the property. All of above made for wonderful homecoming adventure for my family of 7. Wish we could stay longer!
We were a family of 5 staying at this beautiful house and enjoyed every second of it. It is in a very nice part of Kingston, very central and with a garden to the house that makes you want to jump out of bed and sit outside the terrace to watch the sun rise behind the jungle bushes.
Definately worth the visit!
As usual, it was a huge pleasure to renew a stay at Bohemian Lodge.
We consider this villa as our official HOME in Jamaica.
We definitely recommend it !
Tarik was amazing! Our group was there for work and he made sure they had everything they needed, including arranging airport pickups. He was always very responsive and easy to communicate with. Thank you Tarik!

About the Host, Tarik
Greetings airbnb family,
I am a young easy going Social Entrepreneur that has been lucky enough to travel to a number of countries around the world. I have enjoyed the warm hospitality of ordinary people who have opened up their hostels, homes, bed and breakfasts and rooms to me in my travels.
I have a lot of experience hosting international persons here in Jamaica so I hope to contribute what I have learned from these experiences over the years to make your stay in Jamaica a better one.
I am very laid back, very open minded, physically active, I play Capoeira (Brazilian Martial Art) and I love the beach and mountain rivers.
