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.
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.
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.

Janis was not there but her assistant was there and was helpful getting set up. Janis was kind to adjust our schedule when my plane was delayed getting to Jamaica. The place was fine for our purposes. Close to the airport. We were there just one night before leaving the next day for home. Would not be a great vacation spot as fairly remote from many of the attractions and restaurants. I think a car would be necessary. The room was a bit dark and the air conditioner was loud, but no other complaints.
We had a wonderful time! Everything was clean, secure and very safe. The loudest residents of the neighbourhood were the birds in the beautiful gardens. Mr. Charles went out of his way regularly to ensure we were comfortable and well cared for. Our 6 year old enjoyed the property to the fullest. We thoroughly appreciated being able to prepare affordable and delicious feasts in the kitchen rather than eating out each meal. The location was a great pied-a-terre for visiting Montego Bay, Ochos Rios and getting to and from the airport. The parking was a definite bonus.
Thank you very much for your lovely review Jocelyn. We are happy that you stayed with us and that you enjoyed your holiday! We appreciate your telling us about the things you think could be improved and we'll work on improving them. You are welcomed to stay with us again any time you feel like going to Jamaica again. All the very best to you and I hope you'll enjoy the memory of trip for a very long time. Kind regards,
Our experience at the villa was absolutely fabulous. Right from the time the private van arranged by Charles at short notice picked our group of 10 from the airport till the final day when we were dropped back we felt at home. It was hoe away from home and though our group comprised of 9 girls there was no safety concerns and the whole villa was at our disposal.
We enjoyed the privacy and wifi was also available to work unlike other hotels r resorts where you have to come out to lobby or specific places to get access.
Charles was the perfect host and even helped in providing a cook as well as personally helping and joining us in soe of the activities
Charles also connected us with local business and very influential people including high commissioner which was a great gesture and appreciating our efforts to come to Jamaica to help out communities there.
The rooms were very clean and big to accommodate 4 in soe of the rooms without eerie feeling crowded. We will be coming back to stay here again and hope we can get this place again. We will not look at any other hotels or resorts and whle at Jamaica it will be Janis and Charles place only.
We also enjoyed the fruits that grew in the garden.
Thank you Charles, you were like a father figure to us and was available at almost all times en if it was late night or early morning.
Thank you so much for your kind review George. I am happy that you liked the place and that you were all comfortable there. I will pass on your comments to Charles and we await your visit next time you are ready. Thanks for being there and all the best to you and the group you brought. Best Wishes,
The place was nice, it is a little bit remote, so you will probably want to have a car, or expect to spend a decent amount on taxis. The place itself its pretty basic. All the standard amenities were included. The wifi was a little spotty and my TV did not work (although that's probably not why you are in Jamaica). The views were amazing, the pool was very nice. There are no screens on the windows or doors, so just be advised that you will be sharing your room with some bugs. Water pressure and temperatures, not so great. Having access to a kitchen and a grill was pretty amazing. Charles and the family that maintain the villa were great as well. overall it was a great place for the price, my only gripe was that I wish it was a little easier to commute around. Stay here, but rent a car.
Our stay at Tropidise Villa was everything we imagined it would be and more. Charles was such an incredible host, making sure to go above and beyond to meet our every need. The house family was wonderful as well, sharing their wonderful cooking and making sure we always got where we needed to go. Last but not least Janis's home was beautiful, everyday was like paradise, amazing weather, lounging by the pool with the garden view was exactly the getaway we needed. This will definitely be our go to stay any and every time we visit Montego Bay.
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.
