About Charles OConnor

My wife and I are Jamaican Canadians, who also grew up in England. I am a home renovator and my wife's passion is home decoration.....a great match. We love being close to water, ocean views, blue sky's, nature, good food, and being independant. That is why we love visiting Jamaica, especially Ocho Rios and our condo.

Charles OConnor purchased this condo in 2011

Why Charles OConnor chose Ocho Rios

My wife and I visit Jamaica often, both to visit family and to have a real vacation. Jamaica has a special place in our hearts, and on each visit are pleasantly surprised to find an amazing spot or feature that we didn't think existed before. It is such an interesting and fun destination to explore. We recently purchased this vacation property to which we hope to retire in a few years. It was such a find, it was exactly what we had been searching for. The views...the views are spectacular......and the location is so central. Be mesmerised by the spectacular ocean, city and mountain views, the blue sky, and the manicured grounds. Have your housekeeper prepare a special meal and savour it on the private balcony overlooking the pool. The proximity to all ammenities allows you to shop (local and duty free), visit many local attractions, dine, swim, go boating, golf, or whatever your heart desires. Experience the good life in Jamaica.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with this condo because of the spectacular views, the location, features and appointments. When my wife walked into the bright and spacious living room overlooking the pool she did a happy dance!!! We had been searching for years and finally found our dream home away from home. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Charles,

I wanted to take this time to thank you for allowing us to rent your beautiful and cozy apartment in Columbus Heights, Ocho Rios. We felt very much at home and were pleasantly taken care of by Janet. She was really helpful and gracious throughout our stay. We were able to take advantage of her Jamaican cooking and shopping which allowed me to really enjoy the vacation as I typically cook all the time for the family.

Your condo was beautiful, secure and quite close to all the major attractions and activities we participated in. I think the girls were thrilled mostly by the proximity of the pool which allowed them to swim almost daily. If you don’t mind, we will share your contact with friends or family that might be looking for a place to stay when they next visit Jamaica.

Thanks again and we look forward to hopefully renting from you again.

Regards,

Liliane

A good stay in Ochie Town

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a most enjoyable stay here. The condo is spacious, complete, and comfortable. The beds were comfy, the kitchen well supplied, and it had a luxurious, airy feel. From the balcony, there is a beautiful view of the sea and surrounding area. The condo also overlooks a swimming pool, which we used daily. It further has a tennis court, which we enjoyed.

In terms of convenience, it’s only a five-minute walk to downtown Ocho Rios. We went into town most days for both our groceries, meals out and other supplies. We certainly didn't need a car once we were there, apart from going out of town. The condo is also close to Bay Beach, which a quiet, public beach, as well as to Dunn’s River Falls (a tad over-hyped, but the kids loved it). Ochie is a tourist town, and you get your fair share of folks wanting to sell you things. That being said, not once were we put off by the town, or questioned about going out at night.

The owner, Charles, is a fine man to deal with. In sum, this was an excellent choice for us - both the adults and teens. We would highly recommend it to others.

Ocho Rios Condo

  • 3 of 5

We loved the condo, beautiful views, clean and comfortable. There was very few people around so we had the pool to ourselves - loved it! This property is located high up a steep hill so therefore, not appropriate for people with disabilities or anyone having trouble walking. We did not receive daily housekeeping as promised and we could not use the air conditioner in the living room. This made for very warm temperatures in doors. The bathroom backed up one day but was fixed very quickly. There is also a washer and dryer but you have to pay to use them - this should free. We booked the condo for two weeks but after the first week and some very unfavorable happenings in downtown Ocho we packed our bags and paid a local $250.00 to take us to Negril to find a new place to stay. This made for a very expensive vacation. The cruise ships dock right below this condo complex so every day there is an influx of 4000 - 5000 people. You would think shopping would be somewhat safe with all the people around but that is not so. Also, the prices jump significantly when the ships come in. The bars and restaurants just below this complex blast the music until early in the morning. It's difficult to sleep - bring earplugs. If you are coming here for the beach - don't. There is a small beach at Margaretiville and a public beach where you pay to get in, pay to rent chairs...etc. If you want the beaches then go to Negril. This condo complex is across the street from the ocean so when you want to go to the ocean you have to play frogger with the traffic. This is so dangerous - I was almost hit by a bus walking down the narrow sidewalk (my husband pushed me out of the way in the nik of time). Be careful. In summary, the condo is great but make sure you know about your surroundings and that this is what you are looking for.

Owner's Response: Glad our guests found the unit clean and comfortable, felt repair issues were addressed promptly, and gave the condo an overall 3 rating . Regarding housekeeping not being done every day, the housekeeper said she missed a few days due to funeral arrangements for her father. She now has a back up housekeeper for the future. I would urge guests t bring any issues to our attention promptly so we can address them during their stay. Ocho Rios is predominantly a tourist town, and as such, has many attractions, shops, restaurants and bars designed to appeal to visitors within walking distance..Jamaica is a vibrant country, with an abundance of activities and a distinct culture. The landscape and scenery can be breathtaking, and Ocho Rios is a great place to sample what Jamaica has to offer. The condo is centrally located. The views from the condo are stunning, and there is quick access to town and all local attractions. There are many tourist hubs that offer great beaches, such as Bamboo beach. It's important to do research ahead of time to know where to go. If one prefers a more active vacation, wants easy access to local attractions and tours, and a more diverse landscape, then I'd recommend Ocho Rios. I do appreciate all feedback, as it will help us to provide better service. My aim is to provide a pleasantly memorable experience for all guests. Sincerely, Charles.

Description from the owner

Beautiful fully furnished 2 bed, 1 bath penthouse apartment which sits in an upscale gated Ocho Rios Condominium. The condo sleeps 4 persons and has 2 decks and access to 6 pools on site set with beautifully manicured gardens. There is a ensuite washer and dryer, fully air conditioned, Daily maid service is included and a cook can be provided for an additional charge. The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped.

Centrally located in Ocho Rios, you can walk 5 minutes down the hill to the full shopping, restaurant and bar facilties of Ocho Rios. This condo is just over an hour and a half from the Montego Bay International Airport. It is directly opposite to the new state of the art Island Village Shopping and entertainment complex; and the Margaritaville nightspot; a five minute walk to freshly caught fish/lobster meals; a five minute drive to the famous Dunn's River Falls, the newest attraction Mystic Mountain and Dolphin's Cove, and a ten minute drive to Chukka Cove. It is also in close proximity to several beaches, the Jamaica Grand Hotel and Golf Courses are nearby.

The drive to Ocho Rios from Montego Bay Airport is one of the most scenic ones. It is our favorite spot because it has several botanical gardens, great restaurants, and is close to adventure excursions like Dunn's River Falls, or the Chukka tours. In addition, it is a great hub from which to see other lovely cities in Jamaica, like Port Antonia and Mandeville. We have contacts in both these cities for similar overnight rates and comprobable accommodations if you want to really see the island.

Its central location affords you with spectacular view of ocean, cruise ship pier and view of Ocho Rios. At the same time, your condo is in a quiet well maintained and gated spot.

Swimming Pool, Tennis Court, Gym, 24-hr security. A private gym facility is available for an addtional charge. The private condo is equipped with a washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board available for guest use.
