Please DO NOT SMOKE in the house, you may smoke on the patio.
We stayed three more nights after initially booking two. A good place! Look at the last review.
Very easy to communicate with Donna, quick and precise answers and info. Safe neighbourhood, beautiful area, not the most modern apartment, but absolutely worth a stay. The pictures give a good description. Nice patio with limited view of the sea. The aircon and fans worked fine. Some problems with the lights in the kitchen, should be fixed after us. Only hardwired Internet connection but if you have a PC it will work fine. The condo is on the ground level: easy access for bugs and gekkos through the blinds/windows so be sure to put all fodstuff in the fridge and throw out the garbage when you leave for the day.
Latoya met us and helped us get settled. For an extra fee she can both cook, clean, wash clothes and braid hair. She made breeakfast with ackee and saltfish for us the first day and curry goat and rice and peas for dinner for us one day. Absolutely worth a try! Short distance to the city, no problem walking if you are not bothered by the heat. Bring reflectors if you have it gets very dark in the night. Originally only booked for two nights, but extended with three more because we were a bit tired of moving house all the time. The place was a good size for us: two kids (11 and14) and two parents.
hi Kristine Latoya told me that yours kids wet the bed every night, but she used pine sol to clean the mattress. She told me about the light in the kitchen and we had someone to fix it but we did not want the person to come in the apartment while you were in the apartment. So the light will be fix. I will be in Jamaica in August and will be bring the wireless down to put in. About the trash, I think Latoya forget to remind you to take it out at nights. I do thank you to for taking it out after you saw the bugs. I am glad you had a great stay in our apartment, and hope you will consider staying with us in the future.
Donna's place was in a great location. We were able to easily walk down into town to explore. (Although climbing back up was tiring! :P)
The pictures don't do this place justice. It was nice and spacious and I liked the outdoor area with the view of the pool.
Check-in/out was easy and simple.
Only complaint is that there was no wi-fi. Overall, great stay for 4 for a night. Thanks, Donna!
What you see is what you get!!! The apartment is STUNNING, to the very last detail. Actually the photos on Airbnb don't do justice to it. Everything works as it should. The lady that assisted me was amazing, friendly and fun to be with. I would definitely recommend this place to people of all ages. There's a swimming pool right outside, the balcony is very cool and breezy. It's close to many attractions and of course the beach and the Ochi Margaretaville. This was my best stay in Jamaica; and was in four towns during my stay there.
We had a lovely stay, wish we could have spent more time here! The apartment is clean and very comfortable. There is a nice balcony, perfect for morning coffee. The manager, Mrs Marsh, was very pleasant and made key exchange a breeze! The location is perfect, Columbus Heights, as it is built right into the mountain but still a short walk to points of interest.
The only con I had was the lack of wifi. The host, Donna is working on this for future visitors. In the meantime this was remedied by a visit to the Jerk Center a 2 min drive down the street which has yummy piña colatas and decent free wifi. We also visited Mongoose which is has a nicer ambiance for dinner and much better free wifi.
Ochi was an awesome place to visit, skip the beach and explore Mysitc Mountain and Dunn River Falls!!!
Would definitely stay here again, thank you! :D
