Billy will pick you up from the airport and you will immediately feel at home! If you want an authentic experience of Jamaica, this is the place to be. The people of Mo-Bay are just as beautiful as the island they live on. I would highly recommend Billy's place and I can not say enough about his kindness and hospitality.

Billy was extremely helpful to us on our first night in Jamaica when we were a little overwhelmed with the new country and driving on the left side. He led us to his house which was in an authentic Jamaican neighborhood- with reggae music playing and roosters crowing. We felt secure at the house, and woke up to a delicious breakfast made by Billy. If you want to experience true Mobay culture, Billy's is a good place to go. Side note: staying at Billy's requires your own transportation or being picked up by Billy- we would not have found his house by ourselves.

Overall, I really enjoyed staying at Billy's, and would certainly do it again! A few points for future guests, as controlling expectations is paramount to fully appreciating the accommodations. Location: Billy's is located at the top of a large hill (flatlanders would call it a mountain), in the heart of a residential neighborhood. There are a few places in walking distance, but these are literally shacks on the side of the road to get drinks, groceries, and/or snacks. I had a lot of fun partying with the locals at the bar-shack up the street until late hours of the night! Transportation: Billy's place is not really close to anything a tourist typically visits. Parking vehicles nearby Billy's is difficult. You should expect to take route taxis, a private taxi, or utilize Billy for transportation. Billy is very accommodating, and willing to provide transportation for a reasonable price (often cheaper than a taxi). This is one of the ways he supplements his income, and he looks forward to sharing Jamaica with you! He even picked us up at 5 a.m. after we attended an all-night concert! Facilities: Our unit had a small kitchen with a full sized refrigerator, a small gas-stove, sink, a table for two, and a good selection of dishes, pans, and utensils. We had everything we needed to cooked our jerk sausages and eggs in the morning! There is no microwave (for the cooking inept), and there is no hot water (but the water feels amazingly refreshing given the hot climate)! There is no air conditioning, and I strongly recommend you use the provided fans to setup airflow through the place or it'll be pretty hot, even at night. Cleanliness: Our unit was clean, and comfortable (even the temperature was alright as long as fans were blowing). I would equate this place to a Motel 6 Cabin in the woods, where ants will explore the kitchen sink for left out food, but no insect infestations or scary spiders. I wasn't even attacked by mosquitos, which typically eat me up! Construction: Every residential home in Jamaica is in a not-quite complete state. They build houses there one room at a time, and so there are areas of every lot that are waiting for the next stage of construction. Billy's places is mostly done, but his back lot and the neighbor's lot are awaiting their next stages. There's no active construction, it's just visually unusual for many Americans, and I thought I'd prepare y'all for.
