Guestbook comments from the owner

Your apartment was extremely comfortable, in a perfect location and everything we needed was there. I'm looking forward to taking another trip. I felt so secure and safe.

A lot of loud children in the pool. construction work the whole time.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice and well furnished, and comfortable. The housekeeper Pat, was very nice and made sure we had anything we needed. We would recommend it to anyone. But. we should have been told about the construction work. We had a terrible experience with Home away! They were too slow to let Lloyd Wallen, the owner of the condo know what was happening with the balance of payment. the evening we checked in all was o k. but the next morning, all hell broke loose, Lloyds house keeper was knocking on the door and demanding that we pay $1,300. US in cash or get out. The amount was $65. more than we had been given by Home A Way. We could not get anything resolved after hours on the phone. Fortunately we have a bank account in Jamaica and had the cash. Otherwise our vacationed would have been a disaster. The issue is still pending. GOOD luck to anyone booking through home a way.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our 10 day stay at the Sandcastle was perfect. The condo was very clean, comfortable and couldn't ask for a better view from our balcony. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Having been to Jamaica several times over the past years, we would definitely stay at the Sandcastle again. Was very convenient to the beach, restaurants, supermarket, etc. Lloyd was always very prompt in answering any questions that we had. Thank you, Lloyd!

Beautiful beach, clean condo

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival our condo was spotless and bright. It's within walking distance to a variety of shops, including a couple of grocery stores. The beach is less than a one minute walk. Although there are a few vendors there, we were not hassled. Shout to Donald, Pat, Sheila and Tony. They went out of their way to make our experience there that much better. Lloyd, the owner, was quick to respond to queries and directed us to competent people to help once we arrived. Would not recommend the restaurant. It was expensive and staff not very friendly. We found a little stick in the hash browns. Although the manager seemed surprised and admitted it was dangerous, she would not adjust the bill. No problem mon. We simply didn't eat there again. Already planning the next trip back. Highly recommend Sandcastles (via Lloyd).

Perfect - Exactly as Expected

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 10 days in March 2016. The location is awesome, near to everything. The beach, groceries, bars, restaurants and rivers / waterfallsare all just steps away!

The apartment is fully equipped, and very clean. Miss Pauline is lovely. We will be happy to stay here again!

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment and it was absolutely perfect. The location is amazing, you're only a short walk away from margarita ville, the beach, grocery store, restaurants and anything else you could need. The staff are friendly and helpful and definitely go the extra mile to make sure you're happy. The apartment is very clean and the kitchen has all the pots and pans you would need if you decide to cook your own meals. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone, you won't be disappointed.

D15 OMG Twice

  • 5 of 5

Ok guys I know you’re thinking this woman is just writing reviews. Well yes been to Jamaica April, May, July and August 2015(coming soon). This was my first time staying in unit D15, it beautiful the furniture the view and the pictures don’t do it justice. Pauline is so funny one of my friends was cooking and she was doing it wrong she told the lady move let me do it right. She keeps the place clean and tidy and always has a pleasant smile. I had the opportunity to look at other units and actually stayed in one it was nice but not as nice as D18, D17 and D15. Ladies and gentleman you will not go wrong in renting anyone one of these units. I really can’t say more the beds are comfortable especially the pull out couch. I gave my friend the bedroom and I slept in the living room and slept like a baby. Bathroom is really nice and clean with good linens and shower curtains. I normally bring my own things but these units are so super clean I left my brand new stuff in the suitcase. Travelers please take my advice; I stay at Jamaica Grande for about 30 years (three name changes) now Moon Palace it’s nothing like have an entire bedroom and living with full kitchen nice glassware and your friends can come and visit and enjoy the amenities. If you have any question or comments you may contact me at This is money well spent!!!

Ocho Rios Bay
Car: not necessary

Ocho Rios is located on Jamaica's north-east coast (the approximate middle of the northern coastline) in the Parish of St. Ann, approximately 11/2 hours drive east from Montego Bay. The town is now the cruise ship capital of Jamaica and boasts large stretches of beaches many fringed by palm trees. Area highlights include Dolphin Cove where visitors can swim with the dolphins and interact with stingrays and tropical birds and reptiles, Dunn's River Falls which is a must experience for first-time visitors. Stepping stones allow visitors easy access up and down the falls under a stimulating shower. Another area attraction of interest is Fern Gully where under a canopy of trees a visitor is surrounded by thousands of magnificent ferns. Finally, for those who are reggae lovers a visit to the birthplace of reggae icon/superstar Bob Marley is a must.
