Description

The space

This Montego Bay condo is located on the 14th floor of Montego Bay Club, a 45 year-old building which needs updating. However don't be fooled by the exterior and miss the charm and comfort within. You are guaranteed to spend unforgettable mornings on the balcony having breakfast and evenings watching spectacular sunsets.
By the way, the airport is just a five minute drive away and don't worry, the landings and take-offs won't disturb.

Guest access

A full-size swimming pool, restaurant & bar, on-site parking, wi-fi internet, private kitchenette, supermarket with short stay supplies, twice weekly vegetable and fruit vendor, tour organizations, Doctor Cave Beach ($6).

Interaction with guests

There is as much interaction as the guest wants. I am a local telephone call and at most a half-hour away.

The neighborhood

Of course, there are the usual souvenir shops as well as beach access, not just one but two ATMs, a post office and the inevitable Margaritaville. However, in my opinion, the most interesting feature is the array of restaurants, some small and some large, some prominently located while others are more discreet, where reasonably priced breakfast, lunch and dinner menus are available.

Getting around

JUTA taxis are available everywhere visitors gather including the airport but the secret is to share. The fare is based on a maximum occupancy of four people per trip but only reluctantly will the drivers tell you that. There are also the so-called "Route taxis" which are dirt cheap but best used by those who are indifferent to forced intimacy or who desire to taste a piece of the exotic local life.

Other things to note

Stay open to people, both local and other visitors. Not everyone tries to hustle for a sale or a fare and you might lose out on the genuine warmth and humour of Jamaica.

Neville User Profile

Originally from Jamaica, now resident in Canada and after living for more than twenty years in three European countries (Holland, France and Italy), travel has become a way of reconnecting with friends, visiting places and practising languages which were once very familiar.
My previous career was as a telecommunications engineer and consultant. However I subsequently trained to become a chef and eventually a sommelier. My travels now also have a connection with visits to wine locations.
Airbnb offers me the possibility of being a guest as well as a host and both roles are very satisfying
