If you have any standards at home ***stay there***

  • 1 of 5
The pictures are very misleading as someone who travels to JA very frequently for long periods of time I am very accustomed to the standard that is available and the prices that they are available for.

I booked to stay here for 10 weeks and couldn't stay more than 3 nights. There is a serious infestation of ants cockroaches and all kinds of creepy crawly things I got bitten on my lip and eye whilst asleep and it wasn't by any mosquitoes. If you have any standards of cleanliness at home and your sofa is not broken, this is not the place for you. If you only took a look at the mop and broom used to clean with you'd know why! The overall problem was cleanliness as I know a thoroughly cleaned house can not house such insects, this is my experience as a person of Jamaican Descent and a Caribbean traveler for over 20 years . The only thing this apartment has going for it is the balcony and the view, everything else is WHACK!

When querying such things with the owner she had the cheek to ask me 'if I had brought the ants from England as she had never seen them before. So after this conversation I decided to take photographic evidence to support my issues. After such evidence being accumulated it was with no hesitation a full refund was given and I moved out pronto!!!

The other issue with this property is location; unless you wish to walk for over 30mins plus to the nearest shop in the baking heat you'll need a car also there is safety issues after dark.

This property is overpriced for what is offers it is sub-standard and not a vacation in my opinion, well unless you want to live on the balcony.. I still have the photographs/videos , shame that there is not an option to post here.

The ownerr needs to know that she cannot continue misleading people in this way.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you found the photos misleading but I did take them myself and most guests do say they don't do the apartment justice.

If one enjoys walking and able to, taking into consideration the tropical environment, the apartment is located within walking distance to the centre of town and most of my guests find the walk easy, however a taxi is always readily available. This is always pointed out to guests when I meet them for the first time upon arrival so that they are fully aware of their surroundings.

As you are aware it is the tropics and most doors and windows are left open so there will be the odd bug flying in...we will also find other creatures around the garden including bees and wasps. I always have bug repellent in the apartment for the use of the guests for this very reason. Ants are no exception especially if food is left lying around for any length of time.

It was a pity that you felt you were misled, as it certainly wasn't my intention, and had to leave but I did my utmost to help your transition.

Great place to stay!!! :)

  • 5 of 5
I just loved everything about the place, it is super well located, walking distance from the city center, but far enough from the crowd and noise. There is a small beach almost inside the condo, very pleasant to relax. The living room and bedroom view is amazing, in front of a beautiful blue sea! The bed is really confortable and all facilities were working just fine!! I also had the chance to meet Belinda, the owner, and she was super kind checking if we needed anything. Super recommend, to bad we only stayed 3 nights! :)

When you walk into the condo you are hit with the awesome view out to the ocean. The condo was very clean and extremely comfortable. We were very pleased with the condo and enjoyed our stay.
I would recommend staying here to my friends.
Belinda was helpful and a very nice person to talk with.
We plan on visiting again next year.

Review for Holiday Rental 4596

  • 5 of 5
The condo is clean and well maintained. Belinda was very nice and helpful with hints. The condo is in a gated property with full-time security - felt very comfortable. Internet connection was good. This is not a luxury condo, but is clean and well maintained. The balcony is as shown on the picture and we enjoyed it tremendously. There is a small private beach on the property and a nice beach is within 10-15 minute walking distance - the beach has a $2/day charge, but because of it the beach is clean, not full, and there is no hassle from sellers.

Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed for 1 week at the carib and will definitely be our home away from home.The view from the balcony is amazing. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook our meals. Condo is clean and well maintained. Very quiet and relaxing location. We felt very safe with security always on the premises walking the grounds. What you see is what you get from the pictures posted. Great location and walking distance to town!
Belinda was amazing and made us feel welcomed!
Thanks again and will see you soon.
