Jah Billy's Irie Ites Guesthouse was just as described! Both he and Maria graciously greeted me at the airport and immediately assisted my boyfriend and I in exchanging money and getting to the grocery store. They are friendly and are delighted to tell you about the surroundings, beach, restaurants, local attractions. While true to the description, this place is perfect for a budget traveler, the warm sands of the beach, the local cuisine, was all at your finger tips to make the most of vacation. Great experience overall!
Billy picked us up from the airport and made us feel comfortable right away.
Our cottage was clean, comfortable and cool. The neighborhood is safe and full of friendly locals and a small store nearby. Taxis are available all of the time to take you wherever you want to go.. We enjoyed our stay.
Billy and Marie are great hosts. They offer comfortable accommodation which is very good value for money. An authentic Jamaican experience which we already plan to repeat!!
What can we say WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE BILLY & MARIA!!!!! They have become extended family. Can't wait to see both of you again. (phone number hidden)
Thank you for opening your home to allow people who want to get a feel of real life in Jamaica. Billy and Maria were super hosts, and the neighbors were very friendly and welcoming. This is exactly the type of place we were looking and wouldn't change a thing. The memories that were gained are priceless. They say "home is where the heart is" and I left my heart in Jamaica..soon come back!

Billy and Maria are the most gracious hosts! Very warm, friendly people with great vibes. My friends and I loved staying in their guesthouse. We will definitely recommend them to our friends. Thank you Billy and Maria!!
This is THE place to stay in Montego Bay if you want to experience something outside the isolated, expensive resorts! Billy and Maria were so warm and welcoming, and they had such interesting experiences to share! They know the area well and can offer all kinds of advice for your trip. Having lived abroad, they can also offer all kinds of insights into the uniqueness of Jamaican culture.
Montego Bay isn't too easy to see without a car, but Billy was available to drive us everywhere we wanted to go, and for a very reasonable fee.
The room was simple and small, but clean and comfortable with the fan, and it was nice to be able to store things in the fridge in the kitchen. Highly recommend!
I enjoyed my stay at Billy's place overall. It was mostly perfect for a one night stay before we moved on, including wifi, fan, and a warm shower. The house is a bit more out of the way than I thought it would be and somewhat difficult to find, but it was not a major problem. There is quite a bit of noise in the area, but it quieted down enough for sleep. Thank you for being a great host!
My sister and I really enjoyed our time in Jamaica, Billy and Maria made us feel right at home. I could not even think of a better experience. We will definitely come back =)!!!
See you soon Billy and Maria.
If you are looking for an affordable place to stay away from the buzzing Montego Bay, Billy's place is a good choice. It is clean, quite comfortable and located in a residential area which can give you a taste of the 'true' life in Jamaica. Billy was an extremely friendly host and was very helpful.
Note that the surrounding streets can get pretty festive on Friday and Saturday nights with loud music.
