“Great Customer Service! Wonderful Location!!!”

The owner, Miss Jaclyn, is very caring, responsive, and accommodating. Her home is comfortable and the location could not be better. The balcony is lovely and overlooks the pool. We found the weekly price very affordable, but affordability requires guests to bring their own towels and toiletries. Nearby Salem Beach is clean and has the sweetest breeze. Supermarkets, clothing and gift shops, ATM, Dunn’s River Falls, Ocho Rios and St. Ann's Bay really are "just down the road". To my delight, nightclubs are very near. Local celebrities, the likes of Delly Watson at the British Bulldog on Saturday nights, had us partying until the wee hours. The condo is located near great food places such as Jerkies. Try their meat or cheese patties (i.e. savory fried turnovers), brown fish or brown pork stew, and Miss Barbara's ackee and salt fish at Chef Bobsy’s in Mom’s Village Resort. Security at the condo is good and the guards are beyond helpful with everything from luggage to light maintenance. We had a wonderful vacation!

Tips: Hot water is sometimes shut off from the outside and requires assistance from security guard (Michael). Queen sofa bed mattress sags in middle, but is okay when a thick comforter is folded in half and placed over the sag. Close windows to mosquitoes 5am - 9am and 6pm - 9pm. There are two grocery stores a couple blocks away. Best prices and selections are not at L&M Meats. If you don't have an hour or more to kill just waiting to be served, avoid Sharkies. An elderly neighbor, seems scary at first but is actually a nice man. Big dog, next balcony over, has a loud bark but is a sweetie.

“Excellent and good value for money”

Myself and my now husband stayed here for two weeks during November. The property was very clean and well kept. Was definitely good value for money and the grounds were kept very clean and tidy by the friendly and helpful caretakers. The neighbours are also very friendly. It is close to all amenities including an English bar called the British Bulldog which I have visited on my 4 visits to Jamaica in the last year. The beach is about 10 mins walk away and there is supermarkets just around the corner. There is no air con but the fan is very powerful so did just fine without. I would definitely recommend this apartment to couples or small families as there is also a sofa bed. Will defiantly look to stay her again when I next visit

I'm sorry you didn't like your stay. How was the bedding dirty? Are they stained? Which sheets were they, white, gold, blue or all? Sherre-anne takes them to a cleaners after every guest leaves. So perhaps she needs to get a new cleaner? The cookware was only supposed to be temporary until my next visit unfortunatly i've been away longer than intended and I will be going to spruce up the place end of Nov and will be bringing with me new stainless steel pots and pans and new sheets. The apartment is a "loft" style apartment that is why there is no door separating it and that won't change and I painted the upstairs to my liking not what guests would like. This is why there are pictures and a video so everything was available to see how the layout was and what it looked like so shouldn't have been a surprise. The fridge is basically a bar fridge which bothers me as well, and I do intend to change the layout of the kitchen by getting a regular sized fridge and good stove but haven't had the money or time to do the renovation since I only bought the place 2 years ago and haven't been back since march 2011
