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.
Alyssa was a perferct host & was quick to respond to all of my questions. The condo is in excellent condition & the beach access is what makes this place such a steal. Hope to return in the future!
This is the most amazing breath taking place. You walk in the door and you can't believe you're not standing inside a postcard. My mom and I came to Jamaica for my 40th birthday and Alyssa upgraded our place which made me feel so special. She is such a cool and embracing warm individual. She makes you feel like a old childhood friend. I know I will always contact her for every question I have about Jamaica. She is truly an island angel and I will come back and stay in her place every time I come to Montego Bay.
A great experience I'd highly recommend, this apartment was in the perfect location for someone looking to visit Montego Bay. Doctor's Cave beach really is one of the nicest beaches in the area -- definitely worth the $6 if you get there before 11am to beat the crowds -- and there are lots of other cool shops and restaurants within easy walking distance.
The room has plenty of space for two people and their stuff. The balcony on the 6th floor has a nice view over the area and the beach, as well as a cozy couch and small dinner table. Plus there's a pool upstairs, grocery store downstairs, security at the main entrances and Jamaican sun and hospitality all around.
Would definitely stay here again if I end up back in Mobay.
Alyssa was a wonderful host. My boyfriend and I took a trip to Jamaica and there was nothing we could complain about. The apartment was so close to the airport, RIGHT in front of the beach, great views, located on the tourist strip where everything we needed was in walking distance (I recommend going to the mart inside the building - all those gift shops rip you off, but the market had everything we needed and we fell in LOVE with the meat patties there). The cell phone was very useful for booking tours (which she had pamphlets of everything), we felt very safe with the security there and having a safe in the apartment. We did not see the snorkel gear, but we had everything else we needed - towels for showering and the beach, cooking supplies, wifi and the tv was awesome too (my boyfriend got to watch all his sports games here (email hidden) across the street). We had a wonderful time there and we were sad when we have to leave, if we come back to Jamaica we will stay here again! :)
We had a fantastic stay at Alyssa's place right after the holidays! I admit, I briefly thought we should have stayed in a resort type place, but after talking with a guy we met on a day cruise who was at a resort, he assured me we made the right choice! Staying at Alyssa's gave us privacy and access to a larger, less-crowded beach than a resort (apparently they are smaller and way more crowded). The snorkeling at Doctor's Cave beach was beautiful (apparently not so at the resorts) and we recommend going over to the beach when they open at 8:30 and you will have the beach nearly to yourself! And the beach lets you come and go, so you can pay in the morning and have access all day. The biggest lesson I learned in Jamaica: it's most assuredly on 'island time' so don't ever be in a hurry to go anywhere and this includes waiting for coffee or food :) Run, don't walk, to check out the Glistening Waters in Falmouth! It was an amazing once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim in the largest bioluminescence bay in the world! We also did a day cruise to Negril that was loads of fun and worth the money. The ladies on the 2nd floor of the condo complex did a great job of booking our trips with no hassles whatsoever. But you can also find a cabbie who can drive you to distant places and as long as you negotiate prices first, it can be cheaper than a tour. Never worry about finding ANYTHING in Jamaica - it will always find you :) Alyssa gave us loads of information prior to the trip and was just a text away if I had any questions. Thanks for hosting us, Alyssa!
We had a great time in this beautiful apartment next to the beach. Alyssa was extremely helpful whenever we asked her a question during our stay. Stephen her recommended cab driver was also a great help. Really nice, well equipped apartment right next to the beach. Thanks Alyssa!
We had a great time in Alyssa's apartment- it looks just like in the pictures and is located near many good spots for dining and partying. We also liked the shared pool (free) and the option to book tennis lessons. Alyssa was very helpful in answering our questions, mainly about logistics, as well. All in all highly recommended.

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
