Good Morning Sophia!!!
I just wanted to tell you that we had an absolutely wonderful time staying at the condo. We are actually looking at booking another trip.
I have been here many times before in the 90's, in the late 2000's it was under bad management. This time 2014 I have seen much improvement. Things are being remodeled and updated. The restaurant is open again with excellent food from $10-$20USD All new gates and security, buzzer and camera at the rear beach gate no need to wait for someone. The room is great with an amazing view. Comfy beds, plenty of room for 5 of us. Kitchen had everything we needed.
This will be very difficult to find just the right words to express our 3 week stay..I will therefore make it simple..It is and was- PERFECT..in every way..Upon arrival we were greeted by the condo manager Ms Raquel...To go along with her million dollar smile- she swung open the door of the condo and indeed , we were greeted with a million dollar view- the condo amenities were as advertised and spot on first class...everything worked perfectly that mattered. note- some MINOR condo repairs are needed (ie upstairs shower door is damaged and the toilet runs on once flushed)..but outside of that- the condo had awsome Wifi , flat screen tv in living room and upstairs master bedroom, cable tv, cd player, dvd (we could not get that to work) ect-ect....
The property grounds itself is going thru a renovation, as it is true the current appearance is bit dated..Nothing but fresh paint outside is needed..Our condo support staff member- Ms Winsom is a beautiful attentive person -professional, always ready to help and guide us in the right direction...Ocho Rios is a wonderful town-- we rented a car to go to different towns but if you dont..you can walk to some great places to eat..I would recommend Ms T's Ktichen--the authentic Jamaica, Shaw Park Gardens- wonderful waterfalls, Duns River, green market by the clock tower...would we go back???? YES-YES-YES
My girls and I stayed at the Million Dollar View condo for my 26th birthday and we truly enjoyed our vacation! The view was so amazing to wake up to the beach/sunset every morning. The condo was comfortable, clean and neat. The location was in the heart of Ocho Rios. We were only a few seconds from the beach and started each day on it. The gated community made us feel secure as this was our first trip to Jamaica. The security guards were very helpful and available throughout the day to let us in and out the community. On the beach, we enjoyed drinks from a nearby restaurant with a swimming pool bar! Initially, we were a bit nervous with this being our first trip and being so embedded in the community but the staff Raquel and the driver, Orville, were a tremendous help with showing us around and giving us a few options of fun! In walking distance was the BEST restaurant Mama Marley's and Margaritaville for the younger crowd to party and grocery stores to stock up on necessities for our week stay. Although we will like to try a resort next time (just for comparison sake) we definitely enjoyed our stay in Ocho Rios and will certainly recommend this condo for family and friends!
We were very pleased with this condo unit which has the most amazing views from the living room and bedrooms. The tropical vibe and breathtaking ocean views makes it one very cozy unit. We immediately felt comfortable and right at home.
Unlike most of the other condo units on VRBO that have ugly dated furniture and tasteless home decor from the 1980's this unit is updated beautiful inside and nicely decorated. We had a wonderful experience working with the owners who were very accommodating and warm spirited.
The exterior of the condo complex could use some paint and better maintenance of the common areas but the minute you step into this condo unit you forget the buildings' exterior.
I would recommend renting this condo unit you'll feel right at home and very relaxed.

This was out 1st vacation in 3 years. We chose this condo because of its proximity to many of the Cruise Ship activites and we didn't want to do an all-inclusive. Nothing but good things to say about the condo, everything about it did not disappoint. It was clean and homey and we spent a good deal of time just relaxing. We walked to get groceries and also go to the tourist locations in Ocho Rios. We did swim with the Dolphins at Dolphin Cove and climb Dunn River Falls and both are a must do if going to Ocho. We rented a car out of the airport and the road to Ocho wasn't as bad as I was led to believe, so overall we completely enjoyed ourselves. We liked seeing the chickens and goats along the road. Driving in Jamaica is not for the fainthearted, but I drive just as crazy, so I felt right at home, but throw out your drivers handbook in Jamaica as all rules of the road are also thrown out the window. Driving was an adventure unto itself. The only bad portion connected with the condo was the beach swimming itself. Don't go if you want to actually enjoy the water, full of seaweed/grasses. Beach was nice, but even there we were accosted by a Jamaician wanted us to buy something. This leads me to the only bad portion of the trip and has absolutely nothing to do with the condo. As soon as you hit any public spot outside the complex, you are immediately hit up for 1) a taxi ride 2) CDs 3) Pharmesudicals/drugs 4) Prostitutes 5) Anything else that they may be selling 6) Just give money 7) Beads 8) They give you something and then make you feel obligated to buy something. And they want a tip for everything/anything they do. Take away the beggers and hawkers and we had the perfect trip.
This was my first condo rental and I was hoping that it would be as clean as the pictures showed. It was even better, all that was written was the truth. My girls and I enjoyed Ocho Rios even more for being there in the heart of town and at the edge of the ocean. It was awesome. Dealing with Sophia throughout the reservation was always a good experience. She was always kind and very helpful. I would definitely book through this company again.
