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 Apartment in 2013
Why Nina & Steve chose Hip Strip
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 Apartment 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.

I enjoyed it and would stay again but...
I have stayed at the Montego Bay Club before and the location is perfect for me. You can walk to shops, beaches, night life, and restaurants. The 24/7 store on the second floor is great.
Now the condo is a one bedroom studio...very nicely decorated. Bed is very good and comfortable. The host very responsive. Check in/out very easy.
The three issues I had was the hot water in the shower would come and go i.e. you turn it on you got hot water, but by the time you soaped up...hot water gone...had to wait maybe 2-3 minutes for it to come back. The faucets did not seem like they have been cleaned in a while stainless steal but they where white.
Next, the amount of roach spray that was sprayed really affect my allergies. Next, there was two kitchen knifes that look like someone use them to mix paint...I mean really...one blade was blue and the other blade was green...so of course I did not use them.
Other than that I would stay again...but maybe not during peak season.
Glad you enjoyed your stay, it is regrettable that your allergies kicked up. I have notified the cleaners about the faucets, unfortunately, it seems to be from the salt air, it also causes pitting. You can clean with vinegar one day and it looks clean then the next day the white shows up again. The knives have never been used to stir paint, the handles are the same colour as the blades, as they are coloured knives.
It was great
I had so many problems plane was held back a day owner understood. Then I went and lost the key the owner worked with me to get another one. It is a wonderful location and what a view in the morning. I was solo and felt safe the whole time. Hopefully I will be back if they will have me.
Location, location, location
I stayed in this unit for the month of Feb. It had everything I needed. Vegitable/fruit venders come two to three times a week in the upper parking lot. Condo equipped with sufficient cooking materials. There is a small grocery store on the second floor. I took a taxi to MegaMart(like Walmart) and stocked up when I first got there. Easy walking to beaches, shopping, food, pharmacy and doctor. There are two other public beaches within walking distance too. Drs. Cave across the street charges $6US to get in and $7 each for an umbrella and chair. Large balcony and the view was the best part. Good people watching especially when the ships come in usually on Tues. and Wed. There is music next door on Tues. and Wed. evenings. I found that was a plus especially when they had steel drums. I just chilled on the balcony and listened. Music was from about 830p- 1030p. Twice a week tolerable. Studio was clean. The bed is very firm. Bring your own pillow if you are use to a down or fluffy pillow. I was glad I did. New casino being built down the street across from Margarettaville. It is about a 15 min. walk from condo. I was impressed with all the security and friendly people in the complex. I felt safe every place I went. It can be a little vibraint as you are on "The Hip Strip." All the action is usually during the day and the nights pretty quiet from about 10 or 11p to 7a.
The appartment was simple and OK. It´s located on the 5th floor which is a bit too noisy or my flavour. Very limited sun on the balcony and I had to pay 50USD to use the laundry machine and dryer. Overall ok, everything needed for basic use is there and the location is great.
Property is exactly as listed photos are true blue, clean, located close enough to walk to shops, downtown and beach across the street. Nina (owner) is very helpful everything we needed for our stay was provided. The people are very friendly, we were fortunate to meet Jr. (876-877-1655) he is a tour guide. Jr is very trust worthy will be at your beck and call without hesitation
My husband and I had a wonderful time and would like to return thanks Nina.
Clean, safe, and convenient over-looking the ocean and vibrant urban area
Kind of all over the board but here goes...Make no mistake this apt is located in a bustling dynamic area called the hip strip. You will hear traffic and people almost all night long. When you leave the 14 story compound you will constantly interface with very friendly people asking if you require anything. If you're not interested a simple no thank you, or not today is all that's required.. If you take exception to being approached in this manner...stay in an all inclusive resort.
We found this apt and the area very relaxing. Everything we needed was in close walking distance. There were a number of good restaurants. The owner provided a detailed information sheet with some very good tips. Our favorites were the Cafe Mocha and the Debut pizza next door. I should note we normally didn't venture out at night and to be honest didn't see very many tourists out either. There is no public transportation, however dozens of taxis were always available. The apt owners are very nice. Doctors Cave is right across the street which is a wonderful beach area ($6 US or $600JM) Right next to that is a Scotia Bank ATM that provides both US and JM dollars. There's a tour agency in the building, with pricing below what the cabbies will quote. We spend a few days at the roof top pool area. It wasn't busy, we had no problem getting an umbrella and there were lots of chairs. There's a store in the compound, liquor, cold beer, bread, milk etc, similar to a 7-11. Lots of shops for shirts, towels nic naks etc... Downtown Montego Bay is a 30 min walk and it's worth seeing Sam Sharpe Square.
