The view from the unit was great and the unit was very clean a nice size and having a large fridge was an added bonus. Miss Betty came in part way thru and did a wonderful job of cleaning for us. It was a pretty good place to stay. There were a few things wrong though mostly plumbing the kitchen tap leaked out onto the floor making it quite slippery, the toilet leaks from the bottom and you can see it staining the floor tile and the shower is quite poor with no pressure. In the kitchen the coffee pot did not work and the cutlery was either stained or rusty. We were using the unit for breakfast and a couple dinners so this was an issue. Overall I would give the accommodations a 6 out of 10
Thank you Tim for your review and feedback, I was unaware of the toilet leaking, the shower having no pressure, the coffee pot and the utensils, I will rectify these problems as soon as possible, thanks again.
This was the first time I used this type of service and I had lots of questions. Howard answered all my questions promptly and honestly. He was always available. By the time we arrived at Sandcastles it was as easy as ABC.
The apartment at Sandcastles was nice, comfortable and quiet. Wi-fi is available and the beach is 90 seconds away. The surround area is pleasant, safe and everything is a short walk away.
My stay at B6 was enjoyable and I cannot wait to return.
Thank you for your wonderful review, much appreciated my brother.
I stayed at Howard's place for a few days in Jan, and had a wonderful time! The location is perfect, as it provides privacy for those who wish to be away from the main beach, but is incredibly close for those who want to be part of the action. The view was just fantastic - I actually had the chance to watch the moon set over the water!! The apartment itself was great - very comfortable bed and very clean. And the neighbours and guards were incredibly friendly and helpful. I would recommend anyone jump at the chance to stay here while visiting Negril.
Thank you Laurie for your wonderful review, really appreciate and you were also great as well :)
The apartment is conveniently located just off the Main Street (with shops, pubs, restaurants), next to the beach (through a separate gate with no entrance fee) and Margaritaville (with its own small beach we found to be better than the big one). The gated community with a few apartment buildings has its own pool too.
The kitchen was OK (with a big fridge, a microwave oven, a toaster, a kettle, an oven, plenty of dishes and cutlery for 4) and the apartment overall was very clean. Two comfortable beds, two armchairs, a small dining table. There was a TV with plenty of channels too. WiFi was working well and was pretty fast.
We were provided with towels (for the bathroom and the beach) and the apartment was cleaned and the towels changed once during the 6-night stay, which is reasonable.
The owner - a very nice and kind person as we found out - made an effort to meet and greet us in person, and brought over 'emergency supplies' - coffee, tea, soft drinks and bottled water. We found the welcome to be very warm and sweet.
Those in search of luxury might find the building somewhat dated and the apartment somewhat basic. We didn't see a problem with either.
I would recommend this apartment without hesitation.
Howard was a great host. Very accommodating to a very last minute booking made for my family. The place was nice, comfortable and a great location, would book with Howard again.
Thank you Gabriela for the kind words, your family was great too :)
Howard was always quickly responsive to our emails and helpful with our needs. The description of the condo which we rented was exactly what we found and if anything, it was better than we expected. Point Village is the place we will stay again when we next return to Jamaica because or it's unique charm, beauty, location and friendly community.
Thank you Billy for the wonderful review and your kind words, really appreciate it.
Beautiful and clean apartment with everything you need to enjoy your stay in Ocho Rios. I stayed in the apartment with 3 other people which fitted perfectly. It is centrally located with shops and restaurants in walking distance. Howard is available at any time if you have questions. We had a great time!
Thank you Yke, we love hosting you and your family, hope to see you very soon in the near future :)
I have a few regular places i like to stay when we visit Ochi, and now i have one more!
Our stay at Howard's was great from start to finish. Communication was on point, Howard always responded within a few hours and made sure we had all the info we needed before we arrived. Check-in/out was quick and simple. The apartment has been well looked after, it's very clean and fresh with good decor and it looked like it had just been freshly decorated and furnished. The bathroom suite and shower were really nice, plenty of towels, soap's etc. There was a lovely little kitchen, well stocked and perfect if you like to prepare your own meals. Again, the kitchen was spotlessly clean. The bedroom had plenty of storage for clothes and toiletries, and the bed was super comfy. The living area had a small balcony where we enjoyed breakfast every morning. There was plenty of natural light, a small dining area, cable TV, a/c. All in all everything one could need to ensure maximum comfort.
There was also a second bedroom just above the living area that we didn't need to use being as there was just two of us staying. But that was also very nice!
The location is perfect, close to all amenities, local shops, transport, market area, cinema, restaurants, bars and attractions. The beach is just downstairs and the swimming pool and grounds are beautiful and well kept.
My husband and i were just visiting for a few days and know the area well, so we didn't need any guidance or local information. However, it was offered. Also, i have to add that the house keeper Lulu is, i am sure, a wealth of advice on what's hot and what's not on all the wonderful things to do whilst you are in Ocho Rios.
Obviously we would recommend and we look forward to our next stay at Howard's.
