McFarlane's place is home away from home. The complex has a swimming pool, laundry, play area for kids and is just 3 minutes walk from the apartment to the beach (UDC is building a promenade by the beach, the side gate is closed until they are finished. So the walk to the beach is now 10 minutes). Just across the road from the complex, you can find Margaritaville for night life and fine dining, Taj Mahal shopping and Island Village Shopping centers, Mamarlie's Restaurant (vegetarian and regular cuisine), Scochie's restaurant are just 0.1 mile.

About Melody McFarlane
I am happily married 5 1/2 years now to the love of my life, who I have known over 20 yrs. We have one son Joel -James and another boy Jonah-nathaniel due to be born on August 2nd and a step-daughter and step-son. My husband and I love to travel, we do not like to stay in all-inclusive hotels because it takes away the fun of going into town and meeting the locals. We also like to eat out at different restaurants. We are Christians, so we like to visit local churches. We are very simple people who just like to relax, after all we work very hard. When guests come to McFarlane's Place, I want them to be relaxed and feel at home.
Melody McFarlane purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Melody McFarlane chose Ocho Rios
I want when guests stay at McFarlane's Place for them to feel comfortable and wanting of nothing. This complex location is so unique in regards to the proximity to the town center, and the beach among other attractions.

The apartment is just as pictured and describe, the housekeeper Ms.Cherry is a plus she make sure you are comfortable at all times. My only problem was the natural light in the bedroom too bright I would suggest a curtain that blocks light for persons who want to sleep late .
Thanks for such a wonderful review and it was a pleasure having you as a guest at McFarlane's Place. Some of my other guests have made similar suggestions about getting darkened curtains, and I have purchased a pair.
Very close to the Ocho Rios Port
The property is really lovely nice right next to the port, lovely amenities and comfortable bed, pictures are true to the website. Only issue I had was the contact person was late and cut into the time I had available to enjoy the property. But the owner was real helpful in resolving the situation and we really enjoyed the apartment.
Hello Marlon and Sandra,
It was a pleasure having you as guests at McFarlane's Place and thanks for taking such good care of the apt. I am so sorry about the lateness of your checking in, hopefully, we will have better communication next time.
Great stay would definitely return!!!
First i must say this was not my first time to Jamaica. I have stayed at other properties before, this 2 bedroom unit being very nice and reasonable in the Ocho Rios area. Now by the looks of the outside it doesn't look to inviting but i assure you the inside of the McFarlane place is very well decorated with ample seating for nights you may dine in. The beds in both rooms very comfortable, along with the coach. It has a nice size patio with some chairs for sitting. The AC unit works very good and if you need a fan it can be made available for your use. Now here is the reason that makes it so special the owner would now and then call to make sure everything was going well, to ensure our stay was going smoothly, I even had to change dates at one point, the owner was very accommodating. Now let me tell you about Miss Cherry our maid who was always around when we needed her she was kind and we instantly liked her friendliness. Also I would like to mention within a day of being there the owner had supplied us with some juice and water which was a nice touch. The Mcfarlane place is centrally located to many shops and restaurants and if you want nightlife it is also nearby. The property also has a nice size pool to dip into after a day at the beach or sightseeing. The property is quiet but there is always someone new to meet. Thanks again we cant wait to return real soon!!!!
Forgot to mention it also has free wifi
I want to say a very special thank you for such a generous and detailed review and I can't wait to be your host again. From the beginning, it's like we know each other a long time and so it was very easy to accommodate you. That is the type of environment I want for my guests, to feel as if they haven't left their home. You are a very pleasant, honest and understanding person and I appreciate you for that. Miss Cherry has been a treasure to me and I am very happy to know that you appreciated her hard work and dedication to what she does. She will go out of her way to make the guests happy and satisfied. The building, the units were built in the early seventies and they are in the process of upgrading them. It will take some time and when the promenade is done, it will give the place a well needed facelift. Thanks again for booking McFarlane's Place.
There was no real security on the property.. the main door to the building was always open.
The building needs a lot of maintenance. Did not feel safe. Got stuck in elevator for a minute.
I am sorry you did not feel safe on the property. Security is always very tight, I don't know what happened, but will bring to the attention of management. As to the exterior of the building, they are in the process of renovating the complex. It will take some time, it's an old building built in 1971. Will definitely bring these issues to management's attention.
Fortunately everything about the apt was exceptional . It was clean, stylish & roomy.
The property is conveniently located within walking distance to many attractions, shopping centers, restaurants, and the beach. Minor concerns were attended to promptly by Melody, Owner. Melody is very patient & understanding.
It was a pleasure having you as a guest Regina. Thanks for your compliment and I am glad that I was able to addressed certain issues. You were very patient and understanding. I would not hesitate to have you again as a guest at McFarlane's place.
