From up Boston's hill, gorgeous view with roof pool, perfect place to chill and close to any Portland leisures,

Apartments are recent, well equipped and Jason, manager of the place, runs the place perfectly,

Strongly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to post a review acknowledging the view, pool, facilities and Jason's hard work. Thanks also for your patience and understanding when you made the reservation. It was our first booking since HomeAway made significant changes to their website and operations, including payments procedures and the presentation of prices. Your booking and our related correspondence gave me the opportunity to to fully update the details of my property on HomeAway. Thanks again. I hope you have the opportunity to stay with us again in the near future. Peace. JC

Oh wow spectacular views natural air conditioner.

The walk to and from the property had so many water views to enjoy. About 8 beautiful beaches to enjoy within 30 minutes from the property. Daily climb will give you all the daily exercise you will need. I cannot wait to revisit

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to post a response. The water views all around and the opportunity to hike up and down the hill are two of several factors that makes Caribbean Dawn unique. Local beaches and coves are plentiful - too many to count! Some famous and popular (although not crowded), others unknown and deserted. Looking forward to your return. Peace. JC

Nature, water, adventure

  • 5 of 5

One of the best vacations by far!!

This property is like your own villa at a guest house rate. Views, sights, and sounds of all of Jamaica's gems. Make sure to take the back trail from the house to the beach...and try the jerk sausage with festival.

Huge thanks to Jason and his team for sharing the magic of Boston Bay!

Can't wait for the next stay.

Beautiful Views and Excellent Service

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and stayed at this property for 3 nights and we were blown away by the amazing view the property had! We were greeted by Jason, who was very friendly and helpful throughout our entire stay. He recommended beautiful beaches, delicious food spots and fun activities for us to do. He accompanied us to Reach Falls and made sure we received wonderful treatment. We enjoyed the pool which was very clean and also had an amazing view. I highly recommend this property to anyone staying in Boston Bay! THANK YOU

Stunning Panoramic views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a short stay of two nights in the blue room. It was fantastic and too short of a stay. The room was clean, spacious, and had breathtaking views. The sheets smelled great and fresh, the towels also smelled fresh and were soo soft, the bed was comfy, and we appreciated the mosquito net over the bed.

The pool area was extremely impressive! What craftmanship! It looks really great!! And what a killer view from the pool!!

The view of the sunrise was amazing!

Even the walk down the hill wasn't too bad. Along the way we spotted pimento trees, cinnamon trees, pear, ackee, and a June plum tree.

Jason was great! Very down to earth and accomodating. His check ups on us were always timely and appreciated.

Most times its impossible to improve on perfection, but I have a suggestion, perhaps a ping pong table and/or a dart board over by the picnic table.

Overall, a fantastic stay that we would highly recommend to others. We will definitely be return customers.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to post a review. Thanks also for mentioning the freshness and softness of the linens and towels. Glad to hear that you found Jason down to earth, helpful and accommodating. We are constantly trying to improve the facilities and experience. Therefore, we greatly appreciate your suggestions. Love ping pong, but the strong breeze on the hill would probably blow the light ball of course. Darts is a great idea that I will happily implement. Look forward to your return. Peace. JC
