The place looked like it did in the pictures and it was clean and well maintained. Furthermore, the place was very central in New Kingston, a five minute walk from Emancipation Park and Knutsford Blvd. It is in a safe and quiet neighborhood. Also Kristin was a good host. Me and my boyfriend would definitely consider staying at Kristin's again.
Great place; kitchen with all you needed to cook for yourself; great grocery store and restaurants nearby; nice and quiet.
I stayed at Kristin's apartment for 5 weeks for a work trip. It was ideal for my stay. The bedroom is spacious and the bed is very comfortable. If you were staying with more than one person the two single beds could be pulled apart to make room for more people. The apartment is a good size with all the amenities you need for cooking. It is set in a very well maintained (and safe) complex with lovely gardens, a very nice swimming pool and friendly residents. The pool is a great asset after a hot day's work! It is surrounded by lovely plants and has a couple of benches for reading and sunbathing. Shops are close by as are many of the sites in Kingston. Kristin is a great host - she was warm and friendly. She lives at the front of the building so if you need to ask questions she is very easy to contact. She also has some very cute little dogs! A great stay and I would definitely recommend!
Abbiamo passato due notti da kristin. La casa è situato in zona centrale,la location è in zona tranquilla(noi ci siamo spostati a piedi)all interno di un residence curato e con piscina pulita.Lei vive li accanto,è stata (website hidden) pulizia è migliorabile,c è il condizionatore (ma non c'era il telecomando), però c è un frigorifero un ventilatore perfettamente funzionante che basta a non soffrire il caldo e l appartamento è ben attrezzato. Buono nel complesso.
The neighborhood is a gated community with security which gave me a feeling of safety as soon as I arrived (in the dark). The hostess was awaiting my arrival and welcomed me vary graciously. She gave me basic instructions and handed me the keys and a cell phone I could use for local calls; most conveniently! Everything was in order with clean towels and basic cleaning supplies. The community swimming pool was a plus. It is clean, well maintained, and open until 10 pm, a welcome reprieve after a long day.
Kristin was very welcoming and helpful during our stay. She lived next door with her family and her cute little dogs. If we had any problems or questions, she was always willing to help. The apartment was clean with well equipped kitchen. It was perfect size for two people, two separate beds and plenty of closet storage. Apartment was on a gated community, very safe and quiet neighborhood in New Kingston (if it ever gets quiet in Kingston;)). Supermarket and Emancipation park within a walking distance and buses running to Halfway Tree. Only problem we found was travelling between Liguanea area and New Kingston; if you wanted to use route taxis and buses it took a long time because you had to travel to Halfway Tree first. But that's only a problem if you need to do it every day like we did. Other than that, nice location with charming little bar on the other side of the street with karaoke and salsa nights. The pool area was delightful (looks much better in real life than in the picture), relaxing and clean. First thing in the morning we took a dip in the pool, super relaxing and almost made you feel like being on a holiday resort.
If you want safe, comfortable and easy place to stay in Kingston, this is it! Thank you so much Kristin, it was a pleasure!
