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 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.
Other Things to Note
A local lime phone with Sim card is provided, if In needed. Airport pick up can be arranged.
be considerate of the neighbors.
Enjoy your stay, responsibly.
I stayed at Dolce's location in April. The house is ideally located 10 minutes walking distance to Devon House (can you say green space and ice cream?). This was also perfect to walk to the shopping area in New Kingston, Brooklyn Supermarket and restaurants and downtown bus routes.
Dolce greeted us with a smiling face to hand over the keys and to give us a tour of the house. The kitchen was spacious and had great amenities. The bedroom was large and was adequately cooled with a ceiling fan.
I would consider staying here again. Thanks Dolce for everything! My trip was great!
Dolce displayed one of the most caring greetings to an AirBnb visit I have yet encountered. She had worried herself for hours because the Wi-Fi was not working correctly so after I arrived Dolce took me to purchase a SIM card at her expense to access the internet through my phone. While there I was able to grocery shop and Dolce then took me back to the apartment. Well done, two problems solved. Dolce was able to rectify the Wi-Fi a few days later but the SIM card is still there should a problem recur.
The apartment is easy care with a great kitchen, especially the gas stove. The location is good and as others have described the taxi service is excellent as they park close and only have a short distance to travel. The bed and bathroom were fine, although showering required methodology to ensure I'd switched on and off the hot water.
The street may be a little noisy to those who are accustomed to very quiet neighborhoods but it didn't concern me.
Dolce's communication is first class, including before, during, and after.
I happily recommend Dolce's apartment for your Kingston visit.
Dolce is an interior designer, and that is clear from the elegant way she has furnished a fairly small space. She is also a really nice person and was welcoming and very helpful during my stay.
This is comfortable place for one or two people and is located very conveniently for Devon House and other things you might want to see around Kingston. A major shopping center is nearby and Dolce is excellent at giving directions as well as generally making sure everything is going ok. There is room for parking -- while you can get around by public transport, a car rental is useful to quickly get about.
The one issue is that the air conditioner is rather noisy -- however, during the day you can open windows and doors and the place gets very pleasant ventilation. Very good value and recommended.
My fiance and I stayed at Dolce's lovely apartment for 4 nights - and we were so pleased with everything! The apartment is beautifully decorated, just the right size for a couple, the bed and pillows are so comfy, and the fan above the bed is perfect for warm nights.
What we loved the most was the accessibility to everything. You are within walking distance to Devon House, and Halfway Tree, and the bus depot where my fiance and I took JUTC buses to Hellshire Beach and Port Royal where we caught a boat to Lime Cay. We also went to the Bob Marley musuem, which is within walking distance as well.
Dolce was very responsive to our needs, from connecting us to taxi drivers, to troubleshooting the Wifi during our stay...she even let us stay a bit longer before checkout, and helped our ride find the house to pick us up.
Dolce is an exemplary host, and we will definitely return again soon.
I enjoyed my stay at Dolce's apartment. The place was warmly decorated and spacious. The kitchen was fully equipped. A good bed also, not unimportant as I stayed for almost a month. The location is ideal if you want to explore Kingston. Dolce was the perfect host, just a telephone call away if we needed something. The internet worked great. No complaints at all.
This flat is comfortable; well situated and within easy reach of most of the attractions. Bob Marley Museum is a short walk away, as is Lightning’s (Usain Bolt ‘Tracks and Records’) restaurant. Devon House; Emancipation park and local shopping (Mega Mart) all accessible. Close by too, is the Knutsford express bus station with routes to all parts of the island.
The utterly charming, highly efficient and ultimate host with the welcoming smile, Dolce, will answer all your questions, direct you to interesting ‘must sees’ and arrange for your pick-up and transport to the flat. Your host will also, keep in contact with you by the supplied mobile or via email, to check if you’re ok or have any concerns. If your stay is more than a few days, you'll probably need to top-up at a mobile outlet.
The curiously named 'On Time Taxi' service's number is saved in the mobile for those no-so-close destinations. On one occasion I called, the taxi was outside the flat within the minute.
As I said - curious.
The obvious explanation is, they're parked very close to Devon Cl most times, as I witnessed whilst out and about.
I used the local buses to get around and to downtown Kingston.
Any pre-trip questions will be answered promptly by Dolce; any adjustments will be corrected – if needs be.
The flat is as pictured: clean, spacious enough for two, well equipped with cooking facilities. Shelves of books for your perusal - on the odd chance that you've forgotten to pack/load up your reading selection.
I certainly appreciated the large multi-speed ceiling fan over the bed to combat those warm sticky nights; also the free-standing one in the seating/dining area. Didn't miss not have AC.
WiFi is available - just. Sufficient for checking emails and very light browsing - although there may be plans to improve the speed.
With the flat being close to Kingsway, there is SOME traffic noise, but not enough to be a deal-breaker. More importantly its generally a safe neighbourhood and the flat is secure.
So, the choice is yours. I'd certainly book again when I'm in Kingston - provided I can get a slot...this place is popular.
Dolce was a most gracious and helpful host.
Good location and property.
However, she overbooked one of three nights contracted and you just don't do this.
It was the second of 2 bookings with Airbnb where the hosts had overbooked .
One starts to get the feeling that these were due to hosts being offered longer stays for the contracted date and bumping.
