Nice for the price

  • 3 of 5

We had wanted the ground floor condo, but were put in a different unit with stairs to the main floor and more stairs to the bedrooms and bathrooms. This was difficult for me because of my hips. We appreciated everything the owner did to make us comfortable, but the place needs a few upgrades. The air conditioners were not working when we first arrived and their attempts to repair them were not successful in one of the bedrooms, resulting in the water from the air conditioning unit dripping on one of the beds and making it very difficult to sleep in the bedroom because of the heat and dripping water. Otherwise, Angie, the cook and helper was wonderful. She did everything she could to make our stay the best and is a fantastic cook and very good company. Angie definitely made up for everything else. The people in Jamaica are very happy with the little that they have and a positive influence. Overall, we had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is WOW!!! Fred's place was amazing. Lets start with our driver Earl picking us up at the airport. How comforting to have our very own driver standing there with a big sign with my name on it and a big smile. He drove us anywhere we wanted to go. When we got to the villa we were so impressed. The decor was Absolutlely stunning. So typically Jamaican, colorful, comfortable and right at the water's edge. We could just sit on the balcony and enjoy the beautiful view right from there. They even set up a snorkeling adventure with Glen's boys which we thoroughly enjoyed. Our cook was awesome. Thanks Angie, you made us feel like a prince and princess. And the best thanks goes to Fred and his lovely wife. We will never forget them. The hospitality they showed us was unparalleled. We felt like we were family to them. Thank you for an amazing time. we will be back!!!!

NICE PLACE TO RELAX

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Fred's home for 9 days. It is a fantastic home and they are more than accommodating. There are several steps to go up and down to get into the condo and up to the bathrooms / bedrooms. This could be an issue if you have someone with knee problems. The condo is located directly across from the pool which was very convenient. The condo only has air in the bedrooms and upon initial discovery of this, we were a little worried. However, the breeze through the front and back patio doors is wonderful and you really don't need the air. It was nice to watch all the cruise ships come into and out of port. There are a lot of things to see in the harbor on a daily basis. The beach is an easy 5 minute walk and is very clean. There are a lot of vendors trying to sell you things on the beach (snorkeling, scuba etc) but if you tell them a firm no they are ok with that. There really isn't any tide to worry about at the beach so it would be great for small children.

Angie and Earl were wonderful. Angie is a phenomenal cook as well as a wonderfully sweet woman. I really didn't want to leave her. Earl took us to Scotties for lunch on the way from the airport for jerk chicken. A definite MUST DO! We met a man named Genius that was a cab driver who is VERY reasonably priced and very accommodating. The shopping was great, especially around the corner from the condo at the craft market. The condo is within walking distance to many spots, Margarittaville, Scoops (best ice cream around made from British cream I believe), Ocean 11 (which is kind of loud late into the night but nothing you can't stand) Harley shop and several restaurants. The property was as described in the listing. The kitchen could use a little updating, but all in all it was fine.

The condo is in a quiet setting, but if you want action, you can simply walk 5 minutes across the street and have more excitement.

If I were to go to Jamaica again, I would definitely call Fred and stay here. He and his wife are VERY nice and helpful.

Very nice place, great way to see Jamaica!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Columbus Heights Villa. We had 8 people in our group. We had plenty of space. Sharon, the cook/housekeeper, was amazing! She had fresh meals for us daily. We took a trip with her to the grocery and we also gave her money to go a few days later. She also showed us a good place to gets fresh fruit that was better than the grocery store. She kept the villa very tidy and took care of the kitchen as well. There was a local fisherman that would sell to us daily if we wanted, his name was BomBee. He caught some lobster and parrot fish and his prices were very fair. Earl, the Driver, was excellent as well. He handled the booking of most of our excursions and was primarily our driver for the entire time. His assistant, Adrian, was also very nice. He drove us when Earl was unavailable. My only complaint about Columbus heights was the walk up and down the hill. If you simply just want to relax and not leave the villa, then it is perfect. But if you want to do some exploring, be prepared for some exercise! Fred, the owner, was very nice. He had several suggestions on what excursions we should undertake before we got there, he even brought us an extra mattress for us to use during the week. The private beach that we had access to was very nice. It was an easy walk from the beach to find "Flavours" beach bar and grill and the food was good. Other food destinations Earl and Fred has set up for us were Scotchies and Mrs. T's, and both were very good. We also found a nice sports bar called "John Crow's" which was a bit of a walk down the hill and into town but the food and people were awesome. We even were able to watch the NFL conference championship games...with local commentary from the bar patrons which was awesome!

Overall, it was a very great place to stay, just be prepared to do a little walking! Respect Mon!

Get spoiled in Ocho Rios!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo in a lovely setting. Fred is a thoughtful host and even arranged to have us picked up at our cruise ship in Montego Bay. Angie is so sweet and a terrific cook. Earl makes sure you have whatever transportation you need. We were completely spoiled and enjoyed our stay more than we ever could have imagined! Highly recommend.

Who you know when you go!!

  • 5 of 5

Location, Location, Location. This is the best location on the planet.

Close to everything and right on the most beautiful sea I have ever seen.

You really feel like you are dreaming.

Now I know what the expression "it is Who you know when you go means".

Between Earl our driver, Fred the owner and Angie the owner we learned everything

We needed to know to really see Jamaica this time and do things we never even

Heard about on our other 2 trips here. We also saved all most half of what we paid before

at the all inclusive and Angie cooking was far better. You will see us again next year.
