About this listing
Experience serendipity in this secret gem of a studio apartment with a panoramic view of the bay. This Montego Bay condo with kitchenette and bathroom, sleeps 2 and is located on the 14th floor of Montego Bay Club.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Please treat my vacation studio apartment with the same respect and and consideration that you would treat your own place. This is a better rule of thumb than a list of Don'ts.
One word: Amazing! It's truly a gem. The balcony view is to die for! Literally my favorite place. It's right on the strip so it's pretty close by to everything you need including a fairly cheap market located on the 2nd floor. There wasn't a time that I didn't feel safe and the house keeper was very kind. The Wi-Fi was strong and everything worked properly. I will differently come back here if I'm in the area. Until next time..... Thank you Neville for sharing such a beautiful place. :-)
I had the pleasure of staying in this lovely 14th floor studio this week! First off it's bigger than the typical studio! Just perfect for my boyfriend and I! The view is gorgeous and were right across from the beach! When I return to Montego Bay I would love to stay here again!
When I arrived the exterior of the building stood out. It's the largest building and one of maybe the oldest on the strip. When I walked into the studio it was immaculate! Very clean, and more beautiful than I would have imagined. Neville was there to greet me and go over some things about the place. I stayed at the studio by myself but I felt very safe with security around, and there were a lot of dining options in walking distance. The wifi worked fast and efficient, which is a big deal for me when traveling. The view is priceless, the studio is very clean, the bed is so comfy and the shower water pressure and temperature was great, I didn't want to leave!! I definitely recommend this studio, and will return whenever I am back in Montego bay!
Great studio in an ideal location. The walk to the beach takes a minute. Food and entertainment (margaritaville) are also with walking distance. The views of the beach and sunrise/sunset are beyond phenomenal. Neville is extremely flexible as my friend requested to stay an additional night. There was a wifi outage one day of our 3 day stay, which is common.
It was our first time to Montego Bay together and we loved it!! The view was great and the location was perfect. The condo was cozy and clean. The wi-fi was great for keeping in touch with friends and family. The price for the view alone, was a steal!! It is right on the main tourist strip so there was plenty to do in walking distance!! I didn't want to leave! Thanks Neville!
Awesome guy, perfect spot. Highly recommend for a cute getaway spot. Minuets from the airport and downtown and the beach is right across the street! Amazing views and good food all around. I felt super safe and relaxed . I'll def be back! Thank you!
this is the best apartment you can get in montego bay, especially this view is priceless. everything clean, huge comfortable bed and big balcony where you can watch the sunset. you have the most beautiful beach right in front of the house. Also Neville was very nice and always helpful. i hope we can make it to come back next year!
About the Host, Neville
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
