JAMAICA 2 the WORLD! Double Room

Apartment - Private room · Charlemont Drive, Kingston, Saint Andrew Parish, Jamaica

The Space

Jamaican Culture to the World!

This is an art-inspired apartment located in a small, secure community in the heart of Kingston (Liguanea / Hope Pastures). Guests have the option of a spacious Double Room with ample storage, or a Single Room with a private library (shared bathroom).

This two bedroom, 1 & 1/2 bathroom apartment has a cosy dining and living room (with a piano and other instruments), a full kitchen and small patio with a view of the Blue Mountains – perfect for morning coffee or an icy drink!

The small complex is beautifully landscaped, and has several garden areas that are ideal for yoga/ meditation or bird watching. Nestled at the foot of the mountains, this is one of the best areas for outdoor exercise – biking, running, rollerblading, etc.

Guest Access

The apartment is fully furnished, and comes equipped with full amenities (see list). The adjoining gardens are also there for your enjoyment.

Interaction with Guests

I am a writer-filmmaker and have lived in several countries – Going with the Flow! I speak fluent French, Spanish, Danish and have nuances of Dutch, German and Portuguese. I am absolutely passionate about travel and cultural exchange, and since returning to Jamaica I’ve frequently hosted guests from different countries.

Spending my time between Kingston and a farm in the Blue Mountains, I am happy to introduce you to some of Jamaica’s hidden gems, and (email hidden)ly network of friends and extraordinary people across the island.

When the apartment is rented, I come by regularly to check on things. These visits give me a chance to interact with guests.

The Neighborhood

Close to Sovereign Centre you can enjoy shopping, restaurants, a cinema and many other conveniences. Hope Botanical Gardens, University of Technology (UTECH) and the University of the West Indies (UWI) are also within walking distance. There is easy access to public transportation.

  • Jamaica 2 the World provides a safe, secure sanctuary in the heart of Liguanea. Situated in close proximity to banks/24 hr atms, supermarkets, restaurants, local transport and much more. Complete with all amenities needed, whether for a short or extended stay. Ava-Gail provided excellent hosting and introductions to a select group of individuals with whom we shared common interests. They generously tailor made our experience of Jamaica to suit our interests. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be keeping in touch, looking forward to a return visit.

About
Kingston/ Portland, Jamaica. I'm a nature-loving anthropologist/ writer-filmmaker. Having traveled a lot and lived in several countries, I have a strong appreciation for different cultures, people, languages. Jamaica is a wonderfully fascinating place I'm proud to call home. While Reggae is perhaps the most visible aspect of our culture, there is so much more... I'm an avid nature lover keen to help visitors discover the hidden gems of Jamaica, e.g. the Blue & John Crow Mountains, the richness of our herbal and healing traditions, and the wealth of our music sphere. You're welcome - ONE LOVE!
