Interaction with Guests
You will have the apartment to yourself- it is not shared. Keys are at the front desk of the apartment building, minimal interaction with the host.
Entrance to the famous Doctors Cave Beach is directly across the street from the building, as well as Biggs BBQ and Sports Bar and other restaurants and shopping. Popular nightlife and restaurants including Margaritaville, Blue Beat, and the Acropolis are all within 5 minutes walking distance on the same street.
The apartment is centrally located and a great base for tours, excursions, etc. The 'nightlife/clubs' in Mobay is very limited, so please be aware that the Hip Strip is not as hip as it used to be! We recommend a tour to Negril for bar-hopping, and we also recommend getting out and exploring the island. This is a great centrally located apartment.
Other Things to Note
Housekeeping is provided before and after check-in. Please remember this is airbnb, not a hotel! We do not provide extra toiletries/tissue/bin liners etc. after check-in if you run out during your stay.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: What's my total booking price?
A: If you click the blue BOOK IT box under the nightly rate, it will say exactly what your price is including airbnb's fees. Airbnb only shows you how much you pay with fees, not me.
Q: Do I need to bring towels, a hair dryer, or linens?
A: No. All of these are provided.
Q: Will the housekeeper cook for me?
A: No. Our helper is a terrible cook. Please feel free to hire or bring your own, though.
Q: Airport pick-up?
A: Airport is 5 minutes away- approximately $10-$15 if you grab a taxi on your own at the airport (VERY easy), or $40 if you want our driver to wait for you at the airport no matter how long (delays, etc. included)
Smoking is not permitted inside the unit.
Free cell provided during your stay.
Docs Cave Beach directly across the street- take the elevator down from your door to the beach in 2 minutes
By far the best experience I've ever had with AirBnb. Alyssa was warm and accommodating. The apartment is great and close to everything you need. Don't hesitate this is the right place for your vacation.
Alyssa was the best host we ever had. As AirBnB hosts ourselves, we need to step our game up. In addition to being our host, she was also like our travel agent. Her 10-page guide really helped us plan out our time there. We knew where all of the good spots were for food and entertainment. She paid close attention to detail providing beach towels, sunscreen, toiletries, a driver, and a cell phone.
She went above and beyond and allowed us to check-in early and check-out late since the room was available. That helped us because the our flight landed before check-in and our departure was after check-out. Her location was central to the beach and restaurants. The room was also professionally cleaned.
I stayed here for a few days, a last minute spring break trip with just my daughter & I.
The location is perfect, right across from Doctor's Cove Beach. The place was clean & affordable. & Alyssa was very prompt & helpful when responding to any questions I had about the area. Would definitely recommend this to a friend, & will be back!!
This was my first time visiting Jamaica for my 40th birthday getaway with friends. Two of us and a two year old toddler stayed at Alyssa's place while our other friends stayed in the Rose Hall area. Alyssa the host was very helpful and attentive to all my many questions from the time I booked my trip two and a half months prior until the day before we left Montego Bay. The driver Stephen who is extremely respectful, patient, laid back and polite picked all five of us up from the airport and made us feel very comfortable. As we were leaving the airport Alyssa called Stephen's phone to make sure that we arrived and asked to speak with me to welcome me to Jamaica. Upon our arrival at her condo, we were greeted by the housekeeper Cicee who was very nice. She helped us get familiar with the room, building and even offered to walk us five blocks down the road to exchange money at the best rate in town. She waited patiently for us to finished our transactions and then walked us back to our room. The room was immaculate!! The description and photos are just as you read/see on the website. Alyssa's condo had everything we needed during our stay which included an extremely comfortable bed, a/c, an abundance of cable channels, great wifi, a provided local cell phone to use during our stay and a spectacular balcony view of the downtown hip strip and ocean view on Doctor Cave's beach. We hired Stephen the driver for a 9 - 10 hour day trip to Ochos Rios, Chukka, Mistic Mountain, and many other scenic sites. His car was very comfortable and clean and he's a very safe driver. Stephen made us feel like family during our stay. The area / building in general made us feel very safe and was very quiet at night. I would definitely recommend Alyssa's place for this reasonable price as well as Stephen the driver to a few of my friends who are planning trips to Montego Bay in the near future. Our two other friends who stayed in the Rose Hall area during our vacation said that they wished they would've booked Alyssa's other place as opposed to staying so far out near the resort areas because they were bored and lonely on the deserted beach near Rose Hall. We had a chance to really experience the culture of Doctor Cave Beach in Montego Bay, Jamaica are with the locals who made us feel welcomed during our entire stay.
What a wonderful stay me and my wife had at your home! As stated, the views were beyond amazing. The place is very nicely decorated and clean. I would definitely be staying here in my future trips to Montego Bay.
We had a wonderful stay in Alyssa's apartment in Montego Bay. The pictures were accurate and Alyssa's suggested tips were great. We enjoyed a day at the beach at Doctor's Cave, had jerk at the Pork Pit, and enjoyed a drink up at el Greco one evening. It was wonderful to enjoy a cup of Blue Mountain coffee from the balcony while overlooking palms, the hip strip and the ocean.
Staying at the apartment provided us with a great and low key way to see MoBay after spending a few days in Negril earlier in the week! The apartment was extremely convenient for getting to the airport as well.
Beautiful apartment! Clean rooms and a fantastic view! Great trip!

About the Host, Alyssa
I'm originally from the states, but now live and work in Jamaica. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have if you've never visited before. I am very well traveled, and if I stay with you I'm a really easy guest as very few things bother me. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions about my apartment or about me- I want you to have a great stay! Thanks, Alyssa
