A modern & luxurious 4bed/4bath B&B
About Charmaine McIntosh
Hello! I'm Charmaine and I'll be here to make sure that you're taken care of when you stay with us at Chester Avenue Bed & Breakfast.
Charmaine McIntosh purchased this Bed And Breakfast in 1994
Why Charmaine McIntosh chose Barbican
This is my family home that was built for my late husband and I to display and share our love of Jamaican art. This unique home was my 'dream-home' and while we rented it for almost 14 years it was time for us to move back in to enjoy it ourselves. All our friends and family that have stayed with us thus far have enjoyed the space, the layout, the location and it's closeness to everything.
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
Perhaps one of the best things about my home is LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Kingston 6 is probably the most sought after area to live primarily for its close proximity (WALKING DISTANCE) to everything around (restaurants, business district, schools, nightlife etc.) it while maintaining a very 'suburban' feel. All of our guests enjoy our key location, conveniently close & walking distance ( that much) to Sovereign North, Sovereign Plaza, Lane plaze, Orchid village and much more. Perhaps the thing that stands out the most with our home is the art, and it's infusion with everything, from the giant statue we have outside, the garden, and even the lamps used in your guest suite. Everything has it's own personality and we hope you enjoy it as well!

Abundance of Space
We were very happy with our accommodations. This was a stunning property inside and out with more than sufficient space for our family to roam freely without feeling like we were on top of each other. The location was very central and secure and made for an easy commute to the local shops and places of interest. Our hosts were extremely friendly and made us feel very much at home. This will certainly be our place in Kingston to stay whenever we are in town.
This is like a museum
The home is beautiful, we enjoyed our stay nurse took good care of us . Ms Sinclair was very nice as well . We will be coming back again soon miss you already ❤️🇯🇲🙏🏾
Thank you so much for reviewing us! We're glad you and everyone had a great time, we love when our guests feel at home! You're always welcome, and yes Nurse is ESSENTIAL to this whole operation and we couldn't function without her!
Hope to see you soon in the near future!
Like visiting with family
I hate to have to write a good review about this place because now everybody is going to know how this place is and I might not be able to get to reserve a room here during my next visit. From the moment my family and I arrived, we felt like we were visiting with family members who were happy we were there. Nurse Sinclair and Dominique made sure all our needs were met. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you will see when you arrive. When I plan my vacation for next year, I will have to see if this place is available. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Thank you so much Chris for your very thorough and flattering review! We truly enjoyed taking care of your family and they were a real pleasure to have and would have them again in a heartbeat! It warms our hearts when our guests feel so much at home! Mission Accomplished! Looking forward to having you all again!
Great stay at a great property
Beautiful house in a really nice and quite area!
Better than expected!
Dominique and Nurse Sinclair were absolutely wonderful hosts.... We rented the entire house for 2 weeks for our company employees that were there on business and it worked out wonderfully. I was hesitant about whether i'd find a place that would work for us, and even more hesitant as it seemed too good to be true! But I have heard nothing but great things from all of our executives.... Dominique and Nurse were very accommodating and fixed breakfast and dinners for them when they returned in the evenings from long days at our plant facility.... Where else can you get that kind of service??? Thank you again Dominique, Charmaine and Nurse for everything!
Thanks Cindy! It was a pleasure having them as well, as well as a first for us hosting a group that came for business. I'm so glad it worked out for everyone, and would have your anyone of them back in a heartbeat! They were all easy-going and relaxed, couldn't have asked for a better group.
Hope to have them all back again very soon!
Truly your home away from home!
What can I say, we had an amazing time staying with Dominique and Nurse! They treated us like family, not strangers. Nurse was extremely helpful in helping us organize the events that we had planned for the weekend. We truly appreciated that since none of us really knew much about where to get what we needed.
The house is massive. Beautiful living room with high ceiling. The bedrooms were huge and having a bathroom in every bedroom was a godsend for our group of 8.
This location was close to all of our activities and easy to get to everywhere we needed. We rented a car however two members of the group did walk to the main road which wasn't too far.
The massive backyard was a plus to sit and enjoy the breeze.
I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a clean, beautiful place to stay with lovely owners and housekeeper.
Thank you Nicolle! It indeed was a pleasure meeting everyone in your group. We loved having you (Nurse especially loves having big groups to take care of). I'm glad you felt right at home, that everyone felt very comfortable and was able to have a great time!
Please do head back this way someday soon!
One of the added benefits of booking your next vacation or business trip with us is our close proximity to many of the newest shopping plaza's, restaurants and entertainment complexes. For example, Sovereign North, is just a short 5 minute walk away and is home to a number of restaurants including Sushi, Chinese, Pizza, Cafe's and the world-famous Devon House I-Scream!
Our home is located in the mostly residential Kingston 6 area more famously known as the 'Golden Triangle'. Named after a few neighborhoods in Kingston that meet the magic formula of being residential with the right mix of schools, plaza's and entertainment, and their ease of access to in relation to traffic.
As you'll come to know, this neighborhood very quiet, safe and very easy for someone to get around Our home is within walking distance or a short drive of some of Kingston's important landmarks and destination, so we have the best of both worlds.
