We enjoyed our stay and easily contacted Simone when wanted to extend the stay. Excellent visit all around...
We rented a car in Jamaica and stayed at Simone's apartment for 3 nights. Simone was accessible and timely in responding to questions we had. She provided a detailed info guide several days before our arrival by email about how to get into the apartment and other information.
The apartment is of average to good quality by US standards but we suspect is a nicer place for Jamaica standards. The patio is a gazebo and overlooks the city and bay as the apartment is nestled up on the hills. We spent a lot of time just relaxing on the patio. It takes about 10-15 minutes to walk down to the cruise ship tourist areas (Margaritaville, Ocean's 11, etc) and is safe but, as with most of Jamaica, you will be continually pestered.
There was a water leak from the apartment above that dripped into the bathroom that started on the 2nd day. I sent Simone an email and text and she quickly had the the condo management come over to investigate.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay.
We had a great rest in this condo. It's really wonderful view from this place. It's great for 2 people, but fit for 4 persons (additional 2 sofas for 2 people in the hall). It's much comfortable to have a car, if you're going to rent this place (you can go to the road by foot, but it's uphill, it's difficult to walk there). So, dont hesitate to rent this place - it's worth the money!
The view from the terrace and the pool is stunning. The condo itself is just perfect size. Nice bathroom and easy to use. We parked the car in the parking lot near the condo in this huge villas community in the mountains which is beautiful. Columbus Heights it's called. I recommend this place at anytime! can't wait to go back.
