About Kerone Folkes
I am Jamaican born and have a deep connection with this island. My husband and I now live in Canada's Arctic exploring, while representing Jamaica abroad. That is why we named it Aurora Dreams. The Aurora Borealis dances out our window at night and reminds us how beautiful and full of wonder this world is. We hope that our visitors experience Jamaica's beauty and wonder during the day and have aurora dreams at night.
Kerone Folkes purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Kerone Folkes chose Ocho Rios
I followed my sister to this place and immediately fell in love. We found everything we were looking for, direct view to the sea, beach access, large living space, security, and great neighbours. We can relax at the sounds of the waves at night and be at peace. After experiencing resorts, we found that it was more important for a more authentic experience. While we are exploring, we hope that you get to experience what we came to love. Forget the resort, enjoy the authentic jamaica. Walk to the marketplace and try the tropical fruits or just sit on a beach and lounge. Our place is well located.
What makes this Condo unique
Aurora Dreams boasts an apartment so close to the sea that you are emersed in the sounds of the waves against the coast and smell the salt water. The condo faces the north-east, allowing you to enjoy the morning light while sheltering you from the midday sun. West of the property is Mahogany beach. As a visitor, you have free access to a beautiful private beach with a natural mineral spring. There you can arrange watersports or just lounge at the bar.
