Feel at home - Comfy Central Safe!

Apartment - Private room · B Old Hope Road, Kingston, St. Andrew Kingston 6, Jamaica

The Space

We offer a cheerful, clean private bedroom with large double bed (can be separated into twin beds) in a safe, gated community in Kingston.

This property is a two bedroom flat located in the heart of Kingston. It features two bedrooms, a shared bathroom, a semi open-plan kitchen, a cozy seating area, and a small balcony with outdoor seating and a view of the lush hillside.

The flat is a 3rd floor walk-up (no elevator). It is conveniently located at a 10 minute walking-distance from central shopping areas and food plazas (Sovereign and Ligunea). Guests will therefore have easy access to a supermarket, food-court, movie theatre, pharmacy, shops and restaurants. It is also within easy reach of the University campuses (UWI and UTech), as well as tourist attractions such as the Bob Marley Museum and Devon House.

The following amenities are available:

* Comfortable bedroom with clean sheets and bedding
* Air conditioning available for $10 extra per night
* Shared bathroom with a hot water shower
* Windows in all rooms are fully meshed - no mosquitoes!
* Access to fully equipped kitchen, including stove, oven, microwave, electric kettle, cooking utensils, cutlery, crockery
* Free high speed WiFi
* Free parking space
* Access to a laundry machine within the building ($1 USD per load)
*Iron and ironing board
*Smoking (cigarettes only) OK, only on the balcony
*No pets
*GPS with Jamaica map available for 5$ per day if you're travelling around the country

*Please discuss with me in advance for guests or extra persons staying over. As it's a shared apartment, we'll generally only accept multiple guests for 2-3 nights (but this is subject to discussion)

* I prefer to accept requests from guests who have their Airbnb profiles populated (please have a little information about yourself - a profile picture/what you do etc.), and tell me a little bit about yourself when posting an inquiry. Also don't hesitate to ask any questions that you have! (Whether about me, the apartment or the area)

Getting around

From the airport:
JUTA taxis are available. They're normally about 28-32$ to go from the taxi to Old Hope Road. Ensure to agree to a price before the trip.

Around the apartment:
A mall with a supermarket, restaurants, cell phone stores etc. is a 10 minute walk away (during the day). Even at night should be fine - but I would definitely encourage a taxi for during the night.

There are two very reliable taxi options for getting around: On-Time Taxi and El-Shaddai. Most of your travel within Kingston would likely be via taxi. To get to the other areas of the island (Ocho Rios, Negril, Montego Bay etc.) the 'Knutsford Express' service is excellent and affordable. (website hidden) . Their Kingston location is a 10-15 minute drive from my place.

  • I felt at home at Andrew's place. Place is close to everything around and is secure as it is a gated and secured complex. I could walk to near by groceries and restaurants. Andrew is a great host and made me feel comfortable. We had good conversations. It was a memorable stay.

  • Super séjour chez Andrew ! On s'est exactement senti "at home" :) . Andrew est un hôte très gentil et agréable que nous recommandons les yeux fermés et chez qui nous n'hésiterons pas à retourner. Il vit dans une résidence sécurisée, proche de commerces, dans un appartement chaleureux. Thanks again Andrew !

  • Andrew was a great host, very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and really comfortable and its location for exploring Kingston is the best I can imagine. Thank you for all. :-)

  • I was really happy to have stayed at Andrew's place! This was my third time in Kingston but first time at Andrew's. His appartment is situated in a great location, in walking distance to conveniences and very safe as well. Although Andrew was at work most days, during his free time he was friendly and pleasant. My room was great and all the other necessities are available in the appartment. If I return, I will surely re-consider staying at Andrew's again!!

  • Andrew's place was centrally located - just a short cab ride to the Bob Marley Museum and the Devon House - and it was easily accessible. There was (email hidden) security guard so we felt very safe. The apartment was equipped with all the amenities we needed and had a lovely patio that is a perfect place to enjoy a few Red Stripes! Andrew was very easy to communicate with and made special arrangements when our flight was delayed a full day. Thanks Andrew - I highly recommend this place for an affordable quite room in Kingston.

  • We had a very pleasant stay with Andrew. Our visit coincided with a crunch time for him at work so we didn't get to spend too much time together, but we really enjoyed the chats we were able to have. In spite of being busy, he was very generous with his time - he waited outside in the rain to meet us, drove us to get dinner after our evening arrival, and woke up at the crack of dawn to see us off to the airport. His place is comfortable and in a secure apartment complex, and his pictures in the listing capture it really well.

    We were able to get to his place via public bus and a short walk, and the location was convenient for walking to the shopping center and the Bob Marley museum, but we found it challenging to get to other places - or anywhere after dark - without a car or a taxi.

  • Needed a place to host an international dentist visiting Jamaica that same night. Andrew responded very quickly and was very helpful. The place was very safe and lovely. The dentist had a great time and spoke highly of the comfort, welcomeness, and coziness. Would recommend to anyone!

  • It was my second time staying at Andrew's place, and as the first time, it was pleasant, convenient, and safe. I felt very well, like at home, for real ! Andrew is a great host, who cares of your comfort and makes everything easy in record time. Whatever your purpose to be in Kingston, Andrew and his place would no doubt be what you are looking for. Book your stay, eyes closed ;)
