Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Billy is an excellent host. His house on the hill gives you picturesque view of Montego Bay. The room was quite fitting for what we needed. An added plus is that he offers airport pick up and drop off at no additional charge. Our only issue was the neighborhood roosters that start crowing at 4 am, which he playfully offered to cook for us with roasted breadfruit. We would stay there again without hesitation.

  • Billy and Maria are WONDERFUL hosts ! From the moment they met us outside the airport we knew we had found our home away from home. My friend Mallory and I spent two weeks exploring Jamaica. We stayed with Billy and Maria the first three nights of our trip and the last.
    Our room had everything we needed (plus a great view!). The guesthouse is a bit too far from town to walk but we had a great time exploring the hilly neighborhood. Its definitely a good idea to get some groceries on your way in because food is hard to find up on the hill (although you can find snacks and Red Stripe).
    Maria makes a FANTASTIC breakfast and Billy offers transportation to and from town for a very reasonable fee. Be sure to try Ackee and Saltfish before you leave Jamaica! Mallory and I had no plans prior to arrival and really appreciated Billy and Maria's travel tips. Our goal was to experience the REAL Jamaica and with Billy and Maria's help we know we succeeded! Hopefully we will be back soon. ONE LOVE !

  • Billy and Maria were great hosts. As soon as I got into their comfy SUV at the airport, I immediately felt at ease. As we drove through the city and around the bay, we approached the hills where they live. The house is nice and simple with 3 rooms to rent. Mine was clean and equipped with a simple bathroom and kitchen. My bed was really comfortable. You can hear dogs, roosters, kids and great music playing in the neighboring yards in the valley. Real Jamaican country living 5 minutes from the city! It is lush and the view from the hill is great. The Jamaican national bird (doctorbird) was in the tree right outside my room! The breakfasts that Maria and Billy prepared were DELICIOUS! Their company was great- good conversations, good tips, lots of laughs... The other guests I met while staying there were all enjoyable company too. Billy is always ready to drive you where you need to go. I strongly recommend a stay at Jah Billy's Irie Ites Guesthouse- well worth it!

  • Billy and Maria has a great place to stay in Mobay. Very nice and comfortable apartment with separate entrance. The house is situated on the hill, rather far away from the centre of the city, but Billy is at your disposal and can take youe everywhere you want. Maria is nice and helpful hostess with great gift for cooking. She prepared for us huge delicious breakfast with ackee and saltfis, breadfruit and other Jamaican fruits. Billy and Maria are very helpful, always smiling and open people. Very nice and beautiful beach (Doctor Cave's Beach) in the centre of the city. Many tourist, but in Mobay you have also many opportunities to know Jamaican life and friendly natives.
    Thank you for your hospitality:)

  • We had a great stay at Billy's. Clean, simple, safe accommodations in a Jamaican neighbourhood.Billy drove us to some of the sights we wanted to see for a reasonable fee. Maria makes a delicious breakfast if you so desire. Recommended for those who want to experience the real Jamaica. It is advised to bring earplugs, some nights the dogs in the area bark up a storm!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Billy's Place. Billy and Maria picked us up at the airport, and were kind enough to take us shopping for supplies and a meal on the way back to our lovely accommodation.
    The apartment is very clean, very cozy and very secure. It is located on top of a picturesque hill, overlooking the harbour.
    We will most definitely stay again and look forward to future visits.

  • Billy was really awesome to stay with and really "made" our stay in Mobay. we had private transport already booked from Negril to his place, so the cabby was able to find it by calling him. Our room was huge with a kitchen (we didn't really have time to use it), and nice bathroom. very clean, had a fan, no A/C, but it wasn't too hot. he took us to town, picked us up, and dropped us off at the airport for a very reasonable price. Additionally, he made a delicious jamaican breakfast for us for a very reasonable price. overall it made our stay in mobay really fun and memorable. cheers billy! hope to see you around soon.

  • What you see is what you get. The descriptions and pictures of this guest house are 100% accurate. Staying with Billy and Maria is a very positive experience. We felt like family by the end of the week. The food was unique and exellent. We spent a lot of time kicking back on the veranda with Billy, Maria, and the other guests. The Jamaica Billy showed us was fun.

    Oh, don't miss the Greenwood Greathouse..

    Yes, if I come back to Montego Bay, I will stay with Billy.
