I like to spend time with my family
My Mum stayed for a week. The place is spacious, nice and in a good location. Very convenient and good value!
Opal was very friendly to welcome me and my friend.
The place was super nice and clean and cozy as well. Plus it was easy to get downtown.
Me and my friend enjoyed the choice of accommodation all the way.
Thank you so much, Opal!
My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at Opal's place! The apartment was just as the pictures detailed, very clean and roomy. The location in HARLEM was awesome! The wonderful places to eat and live entertainment was extraordinary and like no other I have experienced. The Red Rooster for dinner/drinks and Amy Ruth's for some good home cooking are musts while taking in the Harlem culture. Transportation was so easy (subway just a few blocks away). I'd definitely recommend Opal's boutique 1 bedroom to all looking for the cool, relaxing experience of Harlem and just minutes from all the Manhattan excitement.
Opal was great! Her condo in Montego Bay is gorgeous. The building was basically empty and we had pretty much the most gorgeous beach entirely to ourselves! We were out and about all over the island for our short trip and didn't spend too much time there, but it was a great place to come home too. It's a tad warm with no AC, but then we'd just hang out outside, or just put the fans on us. When I go back to Jamaica, I'll very likely stay there again!
We stayed in Opal's apartment for a week and we were very well. The apartment is spacious (for 2 person) and it's located in a quiet area. All the pieces of furniture are not very new but however comfortable.
Nearby there are many excellent restaurants (traditional cuisine of Harlem) and a well stocked supermarket.
We recommend it because Opal was very kind, helpful and she gave us lots of useful information. In addition we suggest it because it's located in a great area that allows you to reach all districts in a short time by the close subway.
My girlfriend and I stay in Opal's place for almost a week and we really enjoyed it. She is a very kind and accommodating person. She was always available for help when we needed it. As far as the place is concerned, it is in a very good location (just 3 minutes away from the subway). The unit is nice, clean and quiet. Clean and fluffy towels were provided, which is something most places miss. The bathroom is in very good shape too. Well, in few words, all the place is in pretty good shape (just as in the pics). I would definitely recommend this place!
Opal's place is like an oasis. Very quiet and peaceful and on our arrival we did not encounter any other guests until the weekend. The staff are friendly and helpful if you need to ask any questions about Jamaica. I would definitely recommend you hire a car to get around. The beach is right there and we had it all to ourselves.
Overall we were not sure what to expect but found that we were enjoyed our stay.
This was my first experience with airbnb...Opal was very helpful before and during our stay. My daughter was feeling ill the first day (jet-lag from a west coast red-eye) and Opal offered to help get us food since I could not leave the apartment. The apartment was lovely, cozy and peaceful. I was traveling with two little girls (7 and 8 years old) so it was perfect in that they had their space (with the TV) and I had mine (I got the tranquil sounds of a fountain from the lush garden below my bedroom window). When we were done with our sight-seeing activities in the city we could retreat to the apartment and chill. The neighborhood was terrific: super close to subway, GREAT restaurants, interesting shops, the W Hotel was around the corner, and a police station was at the end of the block. It was wonderful to experience NYC (just hop on the train) and also experience being in a historical neighborhood. Would definitely do it again.
Opal's place is just awesome - tons of space, really great location near tons of cool places to go out. It had been ages since I spent time up in Harlem and my only regret is that I did not have more time to explore the neighborhood! Opal was a pleasure to deal with and I would definitely come back!
It was for my son and me the first time traveling with Airbnb (from Europe) and we have had a wonderful first experience, thanks to Opal and her nice apartment.
Both Opal and her husband, Dwight, are gracious hosts. Because they live downstairs, it’s easy to ask them for help if you have any problems (which we didn’t have).
The apartment is spacious, clean and cosy furnished, just like the pictures.
From the bedroom, you look out on a green garden and you wake up by the delightful singing of birds. The bathroom is also good with a nice shower. The kitchen contains everything you need for cooking.
The apartment is located in a quite area, just two blocks away from the subway station. It only takes the express-train less than 5 minutes to arrive in central Manhattan.
The neighbourhood is safe and peaceful, also late in the evening.
Just a few blocks away are the famous Apollo Theater, 125th street with a lot of stores and the well-known local soul-food restaurants Sylvia’s and Red Rooster.
We definitely recommend the place to everyone who wants to stay in a spacious apartment, in a pleasant neighbourhood with everything you need just around the corner and near down town NY.
