Quiet, close to waterfront, studio apartment, located about 4 miles from a major international airport. Apartment includes new microwave, refrigerator, iron with ironing board, cooking facilities and utensils, beautiful bathroom with a full tub, cleaning supplies, full sized bed, sofabed, and a dining area. Apartment also includes a wall mounted flat screen television and an Ipod dock with radio. A quick stroll around back takes you to the pool. Across the street is jet skiing and snorkeling and access to the beach for a small price.
Wayne has always been quick to respond to any emails and is very friendly. The condo is cozy and budget friendly. Everything was in excellent working order. Kitchen had everything needed, internet worked great and we always had hot water. George (Wayne's cousin) was quick to respond to my inquiries. There is a fee for the internet (about $10USD a week) and Wayne helped me get it all set up. The pool area is nice and clean with a second smaller shallow pool perfect for smaller children. There is a laundry on site where you can do your laundry and the tokens for the washer & dryer are easy to get from the security gate people. The yacht club is beside this complex and has great food. With the Sunset Resort being across the street, there are always tour drivers available just outside the gate. Make sure to negotiate price before you accept the ride. There is a lovely beach access just up the road next to the Sunset Resort. It also has a nice restaurant, comfy lounge chairs by the beach and a pool with a swim up bar. Draw backs would be that it is not close to the main tourist Hip Strip area of Montego Bay and there is no grocery store nearby so you need to take taxi's. The movie theatre is about 30-40 minute walk which is okay if going to the early movie however I would recommend a taxi for the late show and for coming back in the darkness of night.
My husband and I stayed here in December 2012. We were greeted by the owner's brother upon arrival. He was friendly and provided his number in the event that we needed anything. He also gave us a tour of the property which is VERY NICE. The condo is clean and cozy. The description is accurate! The property surrounding the condo has a kiddie pool as well as an adult pool, a mini playground for kids, and an open concept "club house" style building where you can sit in the shade. There are laundry facilities on site, and taxis just outside the gate if you need a ride to town. The condo staff is very friendly and courteous as well. This is the perfect getaway for couples looking to take a more independent approach to visiting Jamaica as you can prepare your own meals and have more privacy. We are actually returning in March!
We stayed here for 4 days this past March. It was a very affordable place and totally good for 2 people, especially if you're not into paying for all the tourist frills. Very safe, right next door to the MoBay Yacht Club (which has delicious lobster Thermidor on Wednesdays!) and quiet neighborhood.
Drawbacks were it was kind of far from the action and though there were a lot of cabs, sometimes they'll charge you $20 to go to the Hip Strip even though it should cost $10 at the MOST. You have to walk pretty far to get to a store but there are two places to eat within walking distance (kind of pricey though). The bathroom could've been a bit cleaner for my taste but it wasn't that bad.And for the price we paid it was definitely worth it.
Stayed here for 9 days in February 2012 with a friend. Found the property to be clean and the pictures were a true relection of the apartment.
I am a regular visitor to the island so this was ideal for me and a very good price.
Great communication from Wayne the owner throughout the booking, it was also easy to find the appartment and collect the key.
Location is quiet and safe
Stunning views of the port/ships around the back of the property, also nice swimming pool.
Amazing private beach across the road in the yacht club which charge a small fee but trust me its worth it, however beware drinks are very expensive.
Good location, not too far from town, you could also take a local taxi as they generally do drop offs and pick ups from the hotel across the road.
Things for Improvement/General comments
Wifi is available but is not free it works on a pay as you go system where you buy a top up voucher. These can be purchased in many shops/garages.
The appartment is small so it may not be ideal for a long stay and I do not think it would suit more than two people.
The kitchen was very limited with cookware/utensils etc
More linen could have been provided.
Someone who is not familiar with the isalnd or who has not hired a car may find this location a bit out of the way. However if just want to relax on the beach and you are not bothered about transport this is perfect.
In my travelling experience would rate this appartment above budget.
Would stay here again, area very friendly and the appartment suited my budget. Wayne was kind enough to call me when I returned home to check everything was fine. Wayne was very keen to hear my feedback whether negative or positive so 10 points for great customer service and a nice experience.
Stayed here in Nov 2011 for a week and had a wonderful time. The apartment is clean and cozy and the grounds are beautiful. The owner, Wayne, is very helpful and accomadating. Be sure to stay here if you are in the mobay area! I'm going back for anoher visit in July, cant wait!
We can't say enough about the week of our anniversary at this property!!! There were ribbons, complimentary sparkling cider and a cozy romantic room. We had lobster thermidor at the Seahorse grill just behind the apartment and it was delictable!!! Everything in the listing was just as advertised and we will definitely be back!!!
