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 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 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.

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.

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.
