Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

I found the property well taken care of, spacious and it was exactly as you saw on the website. Centrally located to everything, you are within walking distance to all the stores and restauraunts in Ocho Rios. The beach is right across from the property and is just a short 200 yard walk. Miss Rose is a wonderful lady and will look after all your needs. It was well worth the cost, I especially enjoyed the balcony on the roof top. Late at night you can sit up there and enjoy the stars and the sounds of the night. I would definitaley recommend the property to my friends and family. Nick

Everything needed, more than expected

  • 5 of 5

Being a family of five and our first experience using VRBO/HomeAway we were nervous, but the owner and her son were very kind and helpful on the phone and in e-mails. In the 17 days we were there we and our children enjoyed the semi-private beach with its clean sand and clear water, snorkeling, tubing down the White River, Turtle Falls, Dolphin Cove, and a fishing trip on our last day where our delighted 9-year-old caught enough fish for the family's dinner.

The caretaker Anthony was very polite and helpful, offering to go out of his way to help us. Bring an unlocked phone and he'll bring you to Digicell to get a SIM card; minutes are so cheap there!

The staff of Sandcastles were also too kind for words. There were two times where we had problems and the staff and security were so attentive and were asking us for days if everything was okay now. They took it upon themselves to watch out for our children. The pool man and the one who cooks by the pool are exceptionally relaxed and kind.

There are two fellows named Richard you may meet on the beach: One carries lobster along the beach -- flag him down when you see him. He makes fabulous Jamaican lobster with various side dishes and delivers it right to the complex for you. For less than the cost of one lobster meal in Canada you can have enough for two or three people delivered right to your door. The other ones is a salesman for boat rides for snorkeling, fishing, and tours around the shoreline -- there are five or six people wanting to sell you a boat ride that it's a bit overwhelming and for a few days I refused to go with anyone, but in the end we went with Richard's crew and his boat, Ivan the Native, and were so happy we used him a second time. Be sure to barter -- there's lot of room to haggle, and I found it a bit fun once I learnt the ropes.

There is a great grocery store just two or three blocks from the apartment where you can get everything you need. The people were so friendly, they got to know us, helped us find things, and wished us well when we told them it was time to leave.

For church on Sundays we found the Ocho Rios Gospel Chapel to be an outstanding group of Christians on Rennie Street, within walking distance.

We needed a taxi just a few times. Again, it's hard to know whom to trust. We found a man at the church named Levy who drove a taxi. He was so laid back and fair and helpful that we used him every time.

Owner's Response: What a beautiful Family of genuinely nice people. I'm sure we will be meeting again really soon. Tony and Lurlene already asking when are you coming back. You all made a big impact on everyone at the complex. Don't let Canada where you down, we are waiting for you.

AB FAB!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 5th time in 2 years thst I have stayed at this beautiful beach front location. I recently sent 3 members of my family to the apartment who feel the same as I do. The owner Rosalind and her son Neil could not have been more helpful to make this our home away from home every time we visit.

Plus points are, non intrusive, professional, great price, modern, luxurious, amazing garden, a hop to the beach, very central and even better than in the advert . We wouldn’t dream of staying anywhere else. Thanks a lot see you in November ;)

p.s again THE GARDEN IS AMAAAAAZING!!

Gorgeous apartment centrally located in Ochi

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very well kept and the owner Rose was very sweet and accessible to answer questions during the planning stages of the trip and also while in Jamaica. The property was very beautiful, especially the rooftop terrace, which included a outdoor shower..........which I would have to say was my favorite part of the apartment. There is definitely something magical about taking a shower under the moonlight. The apartment also was very well equipped with kitchenware, making it very easy to make some remarkable meals while staying in enjoying the apartment and dining on the rooftop.

The location of Sandcastles is centrally located and a very short walk to pretty much everything, restaurants, beach, grocery, market, clubs and bank.

I would definitely recommend the property to others and will be contacting Rose again for my next trip.

Lovely apartment in the heart of Ochi - August 09

  • 5 of 5

Loved this property immediately - very clean and accommodating. The decor and layout are in great condition. The roof terrace garden and outdoor shower were a hit with us. Went as a family of five - and there was adequate room to maneuver. The beach is just 5 mins away with craft market and other attractions nearby.

Booking went smoothly with Rosie and Neil and everything said upfront was as expected. Thanx also to Tony and staff for their professional help. Will definitely re-book for next hols.
