Only 5 minutes from Montego Bay Airport. This gated property is located on the Hip Strip across the street from one of Jamaica's best beaches--Dr.'s Cave. It is a short walk to restaurants including Margaritaville, ATM machine, souvenir shops and convenience stores. There is even a produce truck that comes to the complex once a week. No need to rent a car! For trips to Ocho Rios and Negril, there is a taxi stand across the street, or you can use our recommended reliable taxi driver who can take you on day trips to Ocho Rios or Negril (1.5 hours in each direction) for a reasonable price.
This large one-bedroom is light, bright and airy with ocean views from the living room/dining room. Sliding glass doors lead to a spacious balcony with table and chairs for your al fresco dining or watching beautiful sunsets. The living room daybed becomes a comfortable twin at night for a third guest.
The condo provides a full kitchen, phone, washing machine, free high speed wireless internet, AC, overhead fans. The complex includes a small grocery/liquor store in the building, pool, gated entrance, tennis, and 24 hour security.
Our typical guest is the mature independent traveler who would like to experience authentic Jamaican culture versus be confined to an all-inclusive hotel. Please feel free contact me if you have questions about the apartment or area. Look forward to hearing from you!
I'm originally from Jamaica, but now live in the Northeast in the US but come to Jamaica at least once a year. My mother has owned this apartment for over 20 years. About four years ago we joined homeaway.com and turned our apartment into a vacation rental. The apartment is maintained by our long-time housekeeper, Merle.
1. It is conveniently located only 5 minutes from the airport which means you spend more time enjoying your vacation, and less time traveling to and from your hotel. My typical routine on the day I leave is to pack then spend as much time on the beach as possible, then grab a cab in front of the hotel to the airport.
2. We truly care about our customer's experience and continue to solicit feedback from our guests that is used to improve the experience for future guests.
3. You don't need a car. It is close to conveniences and across from the beach. Restaurants are walking distance.
4. Across from Doctor's Cave Beach - one of the best beaches in Jamaica. You won't be disappointed!
1. This property rental is very well priced for guests who are looking for an affordable vacation. We include extra conveniences like free WIFI and washing machine in apartment.
2. Great view of ocean from living/dining room area.
I am not a fan of all inclusives, I prefer to experience the people and surroundings at a more "down to earth" level. I stayed at Lisa and Altheia's condo with my girlfriend, our husbands were not along. The location could not have been better. Since we were 2 middle aged females we did not go out late at night, our evenings were spent on the balcony watching the lit up cruise ships leave, listening to music from the Twisted Kilt across the street and people watching!! In the morning we would sit out on that amazing balcony and watch the city wake up, all the catamarans from nearby resorts would moor right in front of us and we could watch all the patrons jump off to swim and snorkel. We walked to many different eateries for lunch and supper, hired a driver for some fun daytrips including ziplining which is my new fave!! Every second day was beach day, at Dr. Caves, purchasing some fresh fruit each day from Hazel (she has a HUGE basket under the stairs ), she would cut it up for us and we would bring it to the beach for a snack). You can purchase almost everything in the store on the second floor, best of all Juici Pattis brought in fresh, I think they are about $1.20 each and soooo tasty. Merle (the housekeeper) kept the place sparkling and was a joy to meet, she even called us to make sure everything was alright. The linens on the bed were crisp and white including as well as the selection of clean pillows The apartment has everything you could possibly need, we lacked nothing and loved the air conditioning as it was so nice and warm outside. Lots of good shopping near by, and we walked all the way downtown for ice cream!! Walking in the opposite direction we walked to Dead End Beach where there is a new little mall which had a cafe and dessert place and also a grill where we enjoyed Achee and Saltfish for breakfast. You can walk to the Pork Pit, the Pelican, Christels, China House, The Buccaneer, Margaritaville and many more places. When we didn't feel like the beach we just went up to the pool, it was always clean and refreshing, spent a couple late afternoons enjoying the water and the view and just chillaxing reading and soaking up the rays!!
Thank you to Lisa who did not hesitate to return my emails when I had questions to ask, she was a pleasure to correspond with. Thank you again and I would not hesitate to reccomend this apartment.
My six-week stay at this wonderful condo was fantastic. This is a well appointed, self-catering condo with everything necessary for a relaxing short or extended stay. It is an exceptionally clean and comfortable condo located just minutes from the airport and across the street from the most popular beach in MoBay.
I was met at the condo by Meryle, who makes you feel so welcome. There is no waiting around for a room assignment like you would at the large hotels and having to deal with up sells to get a room with a view. Meryle schedules the days to come by to help you with housekeeping chores and she calls to check on you frequently to make sure everything is OK.
I have returned to this lovely condo annually for 4 years and it has been consistently well maintained. Everything you need for comfort and convenience is included in this rental even internet and cable TV. The condo looks exactly as pictured with sparkling white tile floors, comfortable beds, plenty of soft bright white bedroom linens, nice bathroom towels and a fully equipped kitchen if you choose to prepare your meals or just warm up your leftovers from those wonderful restaurants. The view from the living room and the balcony is incredible. You have a view of the mountains, the ocean, the strip and the incredible sunsets while dining, having a drink or just relaxing in your own private space. The balcony is protected from the rain and I enjoy sitting outside when it rains.
The property staff and residents of the building are very friendly and accommodating. This is a 24-hour secured residential building. There is a small convenience store on the 2nd floor and if they do not have what you want they will try to get it for you. There is a fresh vegetable truck that arrives on the property once a week and another truck that stops just next to the building on the lower road once a week.
A major advantage of this condo's location is that you do not need a rental car since many of the major attractions and popular restaurants are located within walking distance. Some of the popular restaurants not in walking distance provide complimentary transportation to and from their restaurants which I use and just tip the driver.
Thank you Lisa, Aleithea and Meryle for such an enjoyable stay and I am looking forward to my next trip.
The property was clean and well kept. The Housekeeper was pleasant and friendly. Lisa, the owner called several times to ensure everything was going good with our visit. The property is conveniently located on Montego Bay's hip strip. Also located across from Doctors cave beach. Overall it was a great place to stay!!!
I recently took a vacation to Montego Bay, Jamaica and stayed at Lisa's condo with a friend..It was more than enough space for us with a wonderful view of the beach!! Merle the housekeeper was very nice and checked on us throughout our stay. Lisa was available when we needed her and very nice..Even the people inside the building were nice as well. This is a great location and scenery for a perfect vacation. I am looking forward to staying in the condo again in the future! Thank you Lisa & Merle for everything ;-).

Don't look any further: location, location, location! A cool color condo on the best beach on the island, this is it! A balcony that thinks it's a terrace, where you can breakfast while contemplating the Caribbean sea; a convenience store for drinks and snacks. Merle, the housekeeper who comes to put some order in the middle of your stay, you could not find a better place to be.
