About Nina & Steve

I was born and raised in Canada, my husband in Jamaica. We currently live and work on another Caribbean Island.

Nina & Steve purchased this condo in 2013

Why Nina & Steve chose Montego Bay

We have stayed in this building a number of times prior to our recent purchase. It is the ideal location for vacation getaways and business travelers, everything you need is practically at your doorstep.

What makes this condo unique

The building is located on the tourist strip, surrounded by bars, souvenir shops and restaurants close by. You have the freedom to structure your vacation as you want. The studio is better value than a hotel room, the kitchen provides you with the ability to make meals therefore cutting costs on eating out.

Definitely a thumbs up!

  • 4 of 5

The property was great. Location by far one of the best, if you don't want the resort vacation. The beach was directly across the street, not far from great restaurants, and there will always be a taxi driver to take you where you have to go. The 24 hour store in the building was an added bonus. The owner, Nina was great with response time. Building was a little outdated, but who cares when the studio was on point. Will definitely stay again.

Bright, clean and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Jamaica and stay in this rental and we are already thinking about our next visit back to this lovely country! The rental was bright, clean, large enough for 2 and the balcony was I think the best part! Watching cruise ships come in first thing in the morning, runners on the beach, people watching. Doctor's Cave beach is so beautiful and handy for pick up/departure for the 2 catamaran trips we took! All and all, we are so happy with this rental. Nina, thanks for providing us with such detailed info on arrival, to things to do and such. You made it a breeze for us! Hope to book another trip in 6 months!! Reggie and Tom Martinka

Truly beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this rental. The studio is comfortably spacious enough for two and we spent most of our time on the balcony when we were done investigating outside each day. A great place for people watching and enjoying the sunsets, sights, and sounds of Hip Strip. The street below had a steady stream of traffic, cruise busses and people each day. Biggs restaurant is right across the street and had some really great food and the Pork Pit, is just a short walk down the road (our favorite place for Jerk Chicken and Pork, so far). The bed was really comfortable and acted as a great day bed for watching TV on the rare occasion we were indoors. The rooftop pool and restaurant were also great features and was a great way to just relax and enjoy the sunshine without baking in the heat. The grocery store in the complex is open 24 hours/day, which was great for midnight munchies or the extra beer or ten. ;) It took between 15 - 20 minutes to walk to the town centre, but is definitely doable if you go early enough to avoid the traffic and heat. Juicy Patties (just past the court house) was a fun and tasty experience, as well. There's a free public beach in either direction, if you are feeling adventurous or you can pay to use the beach at Doctor's Cave right across the street. The only thing we had issues with was regulating the hot water for the shower, it is really sensitive to changes and takes a bit of getting used to until you find the right temperature. All in all, it was a great stay and Nina was always really responsive with any question I had, which made the experience that much greater! We wouldn't hesitate to book with Nina again.

Clean, comfortable and the ocean view is spectacular but needs some tweaking for home comforts

  • 3 of 5

Our seven day stay (Jan. 27th thru Feb. 03rd 2016) at the Montego Bay Club, Room 505 was clean, comfortable and the ocean view was spectacular. The amenities were as described by VRBO. However, we had no access to the balcony. The double sliding doors were impossible to open even after maintenance tried on two different occasions to repair them. We missed morning breakfast on the balcony, evening sittings watching the locals & tourist strolling by, could not enjoy the ocean breeze, and could not access the outdoor clothesline to dry towels or swim ware after a morning shower, a day at the beach or visit to the waterfalls. Again, because we could not open the patio doors.

The room had a washer & dryer, but were locked away in a closet. We suggested making it an option in price to use them. Perhaps adding $5.00 more a night. The added charge would still keep them competitive in cost with other rooms in the area that did provide a washer & dryer.

Little things make a big difference for travelers. We would have like to seen more than four hangers in the closet, especially on a seven day stay for two people. Paper towels in the kitchen would have been nice as would have more than one roll of toilet paper in the bathroom. We had to call to get more than the original two sets of towels initially provided by the owner. Our down time to meet with the owner and get the extra towels was inconvenient as we had to wait and reschedule twice as she postponed getting them to us.

A must to see is Ocho Rios/Mystic Mountain. There is so much to do there. It is a full day event. You can actually walk up the Dunn’s Waterfalls at Ocho Rios. I strongly suggest you wear water shoes and be prepared to get wet. Take a chair lift up Mystic Mountain to zip line through the jungle and ride the roller coaster bobsled, also through the jungle. Swim, shop and dine at the top to the mountain.

On a second day, we enjoyed the Braco Stables. A scenic horseback riding experience through the countryside culminating with a short stroll along the beach and an opportunity to ride bareback in a calm ocean cove. With travel time, this is a half day excursion. Both of these outings were planned by the tourist travel agency on the second floor of the Montego Bay Club. Awesome people. Very friendly and no sales pressure.

Doctor's Cave Beach Club is literally across the street. The sand is like walking on sugar. The water was bathe water warm and the beaches were spotless

Owner's Response: Thanks for all your feedback, please note that you were not dealing with the owner but property manager. I wish that you had contacted me directly by email or phone so I could have addressed your concerns immediately, if you were not receiving an adequate response. I am not really sure what happened with the towels and toilet paper as the property manager is supposed to leave at least two sets of towels per person for the week and more toilet paper, we have addressed this and it won't be a problem in the future. The patio door has now been fixed, and we are extremely sorry for this issue. We were not aware of it until more than 1/2 way through your stay, at which point my husband called someone to look at it immediately. He had the person go to your room immediately, he called us back and told us, that it wasn't a convenient time for you. It is difficult to get someone to act this quickly in the Caribbean so when they do it is advisable not to turn them away. Again we are extremely sorry for this problem, we completely understand how you would be very disappointed. We do not offer access to our laundry facilities, nor do we indicate that we do in our listing. There are a number of apartments in the building that have laundry facilities that are private which guests cannot use either, this is for a number of reasons which I won't get into. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your day trips and hope you return to Jamaica again at some point, it is a beautiful country.

If you are looking for a five-star property, this isn't it. Face it, you are looking at this property because of price and location. This property has both. It is an older updated condo that is a śhort walking distance from many of the area attractions. Above all it is CLEAN. Lots of free entertainment just watching what goes on down below on the street! I only rated the property a four because of the overall condition of the facility, not this unit. One operating elevator that is slow. Would book again. Not a resort, just a good, clean, secure place to stay.
