Interaction with Guests

The villa manager Mr. Randolph Charles, lives on site and is ready and willing to help make your stay a pleasant one. He is kind and friendly and is very knowledgeable about the area, the culture and Jamaica on the whole. He has worked in the tourist industry for many, many years and will interact with the guests as long as he is welcome to do so.

The Neighborhood

There are many things to do within easy access by car (5-15 minutes away).
On foot the guest needs quite a bit more time to get to places.
The neighborhood is beautiful, quiet, and homely. The tropical atmosphere and view of the sea adds to the charm and tranquility of the area. Houses in the area are generally big with tropical gardens and range from older houses, which have a 'Caribbean feel' to them, to newer and more modern ones. You feel at home in the area.

Getting around

It's best to have your own transport to move around when you want and to where you want. Shared route taxis are available at very reasonable price, but you have to wait a bit to get them. There are reasonable taxi's on call 24 hours a day also. Another option is to hire a driver for the time you want or make arrangement with an on-call taxi to take you wherever you want to go at the time you want. Parking at the villa is free.

Other Things to Note

The villa manager lives at the villa and is willing to help in whatever way he can to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing.
If you need chef service this can be arranged. You are also free to prepare your own meals.
The nearest popular beaches are within 8-10 minutes driving from the villa. The hip strip is also about 8-10 minutes driving.
Villa life offers more privacy, intimacy and a more homey feel than staying at a hotel. You live by own desires at a villa, eat when you want, and do what you want without lots of other guest all around. You also get the chance to experience a more local lifestyle.

  • Our stay at Tropidise was wonderful! We were so happy to have been away from the more touristy areas. Mr. Charles was hospitable and answered all of our questions and concerns. We will be sure to contact Janis again if and when we decide to come back to Jamaica!

  • I enjoyed my stay in this villa. I was accommodated on short notice. My room was huge with A/C, a private bath, and a balcony with a great view of the ocean. Very nice and clean.
    The staff was very polite and helpful. I was visiting a friend, so I ate out. The area is very nice and quiet. No safety concerns at all.
    It's 20 minute walk down the hill to the mall, with several restaurants and a grocery store. Iron Shore is about a 15 minute drive from downtown Montego Bay. but if you understand how the taxis work, it's very cheap. Only cost me $120 Jamaican in a route taxi.
    I would stay here again. I could see coming with my family or a group of friends and renting out the entire house.

  • On booking the host was very pleasant and accommodating and during or stay she constantly checked to make sure our stay was running smoothly and that we were comfortable. Students fully enjoyed their stay at the villa. Students mainly enjoyed the ambience of the villa and the pool area. The villa met all the specifications for our trip to Jamaica. Students commented that the villa felt like home away from home. Staff was pleasant and accommodating and hospitality was at its highest level. Especially Mr Charles who was always onsite to provide any help needed either with the villa, transportation or valuable information about the ins and outs of Jamaica. No safety concerns.

  • The overall stay here was really good. When we arrived we were greeted by the the villa manager Randolph Charles, who is coincidentally also from Canada, he was and stayed very friendly and available when needed. The rooms are spacious and decently equipped. The kitchen is also almost fully equipped which was great cause we definitely wanted to eat breakfast in. The pool and poolside are pretty great as well, especially just to lounge around and to suntan, or else there are tables and chairs as well where we got to have breakfast and study during the day.

    Transportation was rather convenient from there, though getting out can be a little tricky. An upside was definitely the fact that it was relatively close to Scotchie's, restaurant known for their Jerk Chicken and Jerk Pork! (We went for lunch there everyday of our stay!)

    For those who want to visit Montego Bay, but also have time to relax, this is a really good choice especially for a budget price. It is a little further than some of the other places we could have stayed, but the quiet and seclusion was nice. We got to all of our destinations within 15 minutes maximum by route taxi. And coming back from downtown is quite convenient as well, because they have route taxis that go to Ironshore (neighbourhood in which the Villa is located) from downtown. Also, feel free to ask questions to M Randolph, he is very friendly and will be willing to answer them.

  • We had a great time at tropidise villa. Although only there for one night, Mr Charles provided great service and was a fantastic source of local information. The villa is a really amazing house full of character with a great swimming pool overlooking Mo Bay. Thanks Janis for ease of booking and quick email replies!

    I'm very happy that you and your friends enjoyed your time there Eleanor. It was good to have you there and you are most welcome to join us whenever you feel to relax in the tropics again! Thanks for choosing Tropidise Villa! All the best to you! Janis

  • Let me first say, when I travel I don't prefer to stay at resorts or hotels. I like to stay in a nice, local neighborhood and get to know the residents. On that note, this place was perfect! I actually enjoyed myself more here than at the beach or on the strip. The best comparison is that it was like going to a family member's nice home to chill...I lounged by the pool and had the best time talking with Mr. Charles and the neighbors. To get to the hip strip and beach you MUST take transport. I traveled alone, but felt so comfortable in quiet Ironshore, with all its mansions, that I took the neighborhood's shared taxi. I have no forewarnings about staying here. Thanks, Janis!

  • The villa stay was as described by host. Plenty of room for all 8 of us. Had a delicious traditional meal prepared by chef. View of the ocean and beautiful flowering shrubs and trees at the villa.
