My name is Jennifer I am from the UK in London, I have been living in Jamaica for five years and love both countries UK & Jamaica, I teach in Jamaica twice a week and the rest of the time is spent with the apartments and the villas that I managed around Jamaica as well as looking after my young family and my parents who are both living in Jamaica.
The apartments are all cleaned daily & very popular with Canadian's and the Uk travellers. They liked the idea that we have a computer and internet that they can access immediately with mobile phone as well as English sockets for those of you who need to charge those blackberries and Iphones. The key to this property is that it is practically on the beach and the other side is the park and the bar perfect for those quiet moments. We also have a Spa on site just asked the house keeper to take you.
The view from the apartment is breath taking and that is where the name palm View came into play. My children adored the apartment when we stay there a lot of time is spent on the balcony eating or playing a game of chess, or snake & ladders. Ella one of my daughters likes the swimming pool and Callista loves the beach having both of them a stone throw away is easy to share the time & not be stressed out. I loved the idea that I don't need to keep jumping in my car to go far. I usually park the car in the car park at sandcastles this is free with security and stroll around main street as everything is within walking distance. quiet and you do feel safe as you meet so many other tourist or the locals doing it themselves. By the swimming pool there is always someone good to speak with. I have met and spoken to some lovely people who have now become very good friends. That is why I have two units in sandcastles as I find it a very special place very central and location is perfect. Read the reviews...
