About Claire Gordon

In the fall of 2006 I went back home on vacation in Jamaica and stayed at Columbus Heights. I arrived late that night so I couldn't see the total beauty of the complex. I stayed in an apartment at the very top of the hill. When I woke up the next morning, what I saw was breath taking I thought I was in Paradise. I was looking at the entire town of Ocho Rios and beyound; I could see as far as Tower Isle in St Mary. There was a cruise ship in the ocean, this was a total beauty. You can feel the fresh ocean breeze, the grounds were well kept and I instantly fell in love with the place. I started inquiring about owning one of the apartments and in a short while I heard about an available unit, I got to work right away made the purchase in 2007 and I have been enjoying this secret getaway ever since. This is a studio apartment perfect for couples, couples with small kids or girls get away. That's why my husband and I call it 'The Love Nest'.

Claire Gordon purchased this studio in 2007

Why Claire Gordon chose Ocho Rios

I grew up in Saint Ann so I knew the area very well Ocho Rios is one on the major Tourist Resorts in Jamaica. This apartment is located in a gated community, with 24 hour security. The unit is well kept and up- to-date with new appliances. The housekeeper is very friendly, honest, dependable and reliable.

What makes this studio unique

Beautiful ocean view; close to the center of town; fulfills my dream of owning a property on a hill as I love to be able to see around me. The entire comples is a total beauty.

I Loved It !

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely loved this apartment. This apartment is very clean and well kept, it lived up to my expectations. The house keeper was absolutely friendly, she was willing to assist me in whatever way she could. There is a beautiful view of the ocean and the town. As I sat on the Gazebo the breeze was so refreshing I was able to relax and unwind. If you are looking for a quiet get away this is absolutely the place to be. The complex is very quiet, I felt very safe as the apartment is in a gated and guarded community and there are also guards who walk the grounds at nights. I did not mind walking into the town going down was a breeze, coming back was a little challenge and it's an uphill climb but I took the opportunity to enjoy nature. Everyone on the compound was absolutley friendly; I really enjoyed my stay. I would recommend this spot for couples, girls get away or just as a home away from home. Loved it!

Gorgeous home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This was my first stay in Ochi and boy oh boy did I make the right deal. This apartment is an absolute gem. The condo comes with amenities such as hot water, A/C, cable TV, balcony with a spectacular view, pool & tennis court usage. The photos come close but the live experience is even better. From the spectacular views to the wonderful housekeeper, you will truly feel at home while staying here. The housekeeper is wonderful and willing to aid in any way she can. From shopping for you to information on local spots, you can count on her. The property is located on a steep incline but not a problem to hike (and a breeze away if you have a rental like I did, or make use of local taxi) as it is very close in proximity (walking distance away) to the town shopping center, and local attractions such as Margaritaville, Dolphin Cove, and the cruise ship port. Claude, you and your family are truly wonderful owners. The love and pride of ownership are evident in the maintenance, décor, and modern look of the place, and I got a good sense of your pride and genuineness from our conversations. I felt like I was talking to someone whom I’ve known for ages. I will definitely stay here again , and will highly recommend it to anyone: strangers, friends, and family. If you ever want to sell, I know Mom is ready with an offer for you.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I had an amazing weekend with my best friend last month at this beautiful condo! It was very clean, the staff was great, I felt safe, and the views are gorgeous. I would absolutely stay here the next time I go to Ochi and recommend it! As my friend Gen states, the pictures don't do this property justice. It's much nicer in person. The pool is footsteps away, and the beach is under a 10 minute walk. Everything is within walking distance (Town, restaurants, bars (margaritaville), the market, beach, etc)!

Owner's Response: Erin. Thanks for your feedback and I am thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. Yes, this is a perfect get away for sun lovers and anyone looking for a quick getaway. If you don't rent a car there is a visitor's counter at the airport that provides transportation service to all the resorts in the area. The staff is great and very professional. You will have no regrets staying at this apartment. There is so much fun activities whether you are a night person or you like to have fun in the day time. It is indeed the perfect getaway.

Absolutely gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough good things about this place. Having decided that we would stay away from all-inclusive resorts, my girlfriend and i rented the condo for the weekend while in Ochi. The pictures don't do it justice. This place is awesome, so clean and the bed my god...amazing! The staff was very courteous, grounds are beautiful. We did get quite a bit of exercise going up and down the hill but it was perfect. Beach along with everything else is a very short walking distance away. I wish we could have stayed our whole vacation here! I recommend to anyone, you will not be disappointed.

Thanks again Claire for making everything so easy and pleasant, we will be back very shortly:)

Home ... Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
I’ve stayed at this apartment on numerous occasions, most recently December 2009 to January 2010. The apartment is always well maintained and the décor is modern and cozy. The housekeeper is very pleasant and accommodating. The kitchen is well-stocked, providing all the essential equipment and utensils for cooking.

The balcony overlooks a large shared pool which is only steps away. It also provides a good view of the ocean and the nearby mountains. The unit is located in the middle of the property and literally steps away from the parking lot. Therefore, you won’t have too far to haul your luggage and at night you’ll be able to find your way quite easily since there is very good illumination from the parking lot to the front door of the apartment. This is not true for all the units.

The property is minutes away from the town and all the hip spots such as Dunn’s River Falls, Margarita Ville and Island Village, just to name a few.

I highly recommend this apartment and will definitely stay there the next time I go to Ocho Rios.

Feels Like Home

  • 5 of 5
My relatives and I have stayed at this apartment on several occasions and we’ve had nothing but the best experiences. It’s always a pleasure dealing with the owners. They are honest and unpretentious … they deliver exactly what they promise: from the location, to the apartment, to the wonderful housekeeper. You won’t be disappointed!

The apartment is very clean and well maintained … pride of ownership is evident. The housekeeper is very personable and willing to help in whatever way she can … all you have to do is ask.

The complex is very well situated. It is on a hill which overlooks the city and the ocean, so you can just sit on the balcony and enjoy the scenery. It's a nice uphill walk to get to the apartment (about 10 minutes from the foot of the hill) or a cheap cab ride if you're busted at the end of the day. You are close enough to the action if that’s what you’re looking for because the craft market, various shopping complexes and night life all await at the foot of the hill and Dunn’s River Falls is only minutes away. However, it’s also far enough away (or high enough away) that you don’t have to feel like you’re in the hustle and bustle at the end of a long day. I will definitely continue to recommend this property to everyone!

Owner's Response: Kimmy,
Thank you for your review I am happy to know that you enjoy our secret getaway as much as my family does. The girls love the pool and my husband just loves being so close to everything in such central part of the island. My favorite part is waking up in the morning and enjoying the fresh air and the beautiful view of the ocean. Thanks again for chosing our place and we hope you visit again.
