Fast speed internet
Interaction with Guests
I'm only a phone call away.... if needed.
Location, Location,Location. As a person who traveled a lot. I know how important location is! You can't get any better than this! Centrally located, on a quiet, safe, out of the way neighborhood off Kings Way...,between New Kingston and Half Way Tree ... (the town center.) You can just about walk everywhere of interest.
The Terra Nova Hotel is across the street from the apt. On week nights drop by the Regency Bar during their happy hour and unwind ,whist listening to live music.
The large Mega Mart food store is just a block away also! The location is fantastic and very safe .
I'm almost smack in the middle of Half Way Tree and New Kingston (on most weekend I ditched my car do my errands around town on foot) I do encourage my guest to explore on foot. However, OnTime Taxi Service, literally takes 2 mins after you call, so be ready before you call.
On any Sunday between 10am - 2pm, for $US30 go by the Terra Nova Hotel (across from the apt)and allow your taste buds to be stimulated by the extensive offering of Jamaican and international cuisine, whilst you're feted to live Jamaican music.

We booked Dolce's place on the spur of the moment and were not disappointed, as it suited our purposes perfectly. The flat is clean, tidy, and comfortable and located in a safe neighbourhood that we enjoyed exploring (especially the bar up the road!). Dolce is a lovely host: easy to get hold of and super friendly — she really went above and beyond to make us feel welcome.
Dolce was a great host and went the extra mile to make my stay a pleasant one. The area is indeed a busy one so it took me a while to get accustomed to the sound of traffic. Thanks again Dolce
My experience here was amazing the apartment was everything as explained in the pictures it's in a very safe area close to everything and the famous Devon house with the best ice cream the host is very pleasant and have a awesome personality the wifi worked great cable TV was great also I had no complaints at all the bed was so comfy felt right at home I would definitely stay here again amazing home with an amazing host
Great location. But! There is a few things need to be done. I think she should put just in detail, on her site that she charge for AC l. She d said she do, but when I go back on the site to read, to see if I missed it, there was no wording. Then there was no microwave in the apartment, but she called on Saturday August 8th 2015. To tell me she bought one and if I still need it after I have been there from July 30th. The hot water switch did not work, so that need to get fix. The bathroom shower need fixing where the water can drain properly, instead of me using a broom to sweep the water into the drain. I think that was tacky.
On Friday there was no water into the apartment, I called her and was told 're not her problem, it's the water commission who have a water restrictions. But she have a tank on the roof top, and I had someone check and she h a d no water into it. It was one of the neighbors who help me out with water. Just to flushed. I had to buy water, I will never rent from her again. She seem to be a very nice person. But I think she needs to make sure her guests are taking care of properly.
On the site the pictures, look great but some of the furniture advertised are not into the apartment. It's was staged. I had limited pots and pans to use. Without AC it's help in there. She changed $10 per night for AC that's doesn't shout off, so you don't get much sleep and if you turn off the AC you burn up. And since I tell her I am not going to pay after two nights. She turn it off from the main switch, so I just used the fan.
I would not recommend anyone to stay there.
Sorry your experience was less than fulfilling . I know not all guest experiences and expectations are alike, non the less i was taken by surprise by your feedback-My first sour review that of 38 positives.
As a fellow host, i know you understand the impact of public comments as it relates to a listing, that is why i am genuinely disappointed that after my multiple inquires about the quality of your stay in which you assured me that all was well, yet you opted to air your frustrations here (website hidden) a frequent traveler myself i understand the value of accurate reviews but i do sincerely feel this is a severe misrepresentation of my listing and the nature of your experience.
At the risk of appearing defensive, I will limit my response to clarify the issues for my potential guest and even yours.
I was not aware that the pots and pan provided was not sufficient , especially seen that you were the only person occupying the apartment that is listed for two, i couldn't fathom that 6 pots and pans would've been insufficient.
You are the one who assured me that you could do without air-conditioning that (was never apart of my listing)"since you were out most of the days at work and back home at 2-3 am. you found the overhead fan to be adequate".I had no idea you weren't comfortable, because the well being of every single guest is very important. That is why i stay in constant contact with each and every guest that i'v had the pleasure of hosting.
The entire Kingston corporate area is affected by severe water shortage. I have made sure that water is readily available thru the 1000 gallon tank that supply the apartment with water during your stay.Had i been told that you had no water, albeit for 1 out of your 11 night stay, i would readily bought water to solve the problem.
AIRBNB ENCOURAGES US HOST TO WELCOME STRANGERS IN OUR HOMES SO THEY CAN HAVE AN AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE. TO PRIVATELY DESCRIBE MY SPACE AS A" DUMP" IS UNGRACIOUS AND BELITTLING AND NOT REFLECTIVE OF THE AIRBNB WANTS YOU AND I AS HOST TO (website hidden) NOT COMMUNICATE YOUR GROUCHES TO ME UP FRONT, DOES SUGGEST THAT YOU ARE LESS CONCERN WITH HELPING ME AS A FELLOW HOST TOO IMPROVE MY OFFER BUT RATHER THAT YOUR INTENT IS TO DISSUADE POTENTIAL GUESTS...
AS MALICIOUS AS YOU REVIEW IS I WILL MAINTAIN MY RESOLVE TO OFFER MY BEST TO EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO WALKS THRU MY DOORS
Hello, I srayed in Dolce 's flat for 7 nights in June 2015. She was nice n friendly .she met my needs . She always check up on me to make sure I dont lack of anything .I was very satisfied.
Dolce was absolutely wonderful and helpful. Within my first 20 minutes after arriving, she was giving me a ride to the grocery mart to grab some supplies and show me the way for future reference. The apartment was clean and comfortable. Dolce was always quick to respond, and checked in a few days in just to make sure all was well. I felt quite comfortable in the area, and there is a fair bit to do within walking distance. Cabs were frequently nearby, for the rest.
Dolce é uma ótima anfitriã! Me senti bastante confortável em seu apartamento e a realidade bate com a descrição apresentada. Além das ótimas condições do apartamento e de sua boa localização, Dolce se diferenciou pelo modo como me tratou desde os primeiros contatos virtuais. Ela é muito solícita, disponível e simpática. Me ajudou bastante com dicas sobre onde comprar, comer e como me virar por Kingston e também para viajar pela Jamaica. Fez também o contato com os serviços de táxi sempre que precisei.
Dolce, obrigada por tudo, que você seja muito bem vinda novamente no Brasil assim como fui bem recebida por você! One love! :)
