Our apartment is located in a gated apartment complex, located on the coast of Montego Bay in Jamaica. A simple set up, a completely remodeled modern apartment, a.c'd, lcd tvs, Caribbean breeze and sunshine; a pool. Step to the natural beach. 17 minutes to the "big" city.
It's quiet, very safe (24 hour security), and you can choose between a natural beach or pool. You can take a local taxi from our gate to go into town for less than $2/trip. We're right beside the all-inclusives, but just a LOT quieter. The exterior white washed walls always need painting but it's kinda romantic especially at night - wonderful views. Inside the rooms are really nice, as are the people there.
BTW- - if you rent on a long-term rate (base rent + electric), note electric costs are $0.47/kwh, considerably higher than North american rates) but still a deal overall for long term renters (one month+).
You can use everything in the apartment. Just don't break anything.
Not much - after she checks you in, you can call Karen back if you have any issues - she give you her cell phone number. That's about it - we give people space.
The exterior of the buildings are always in need of a paint job. But the inside of the apartments are very nice, like the pix. Wifi is available on a per diem rate, but must be reserved. Also, longterm stays (i.e. 4 weeks+) must pay own electric - this enable us to keep our cost very low.
Respect the space, so others can enjoy it. No loud parties - the security guard would come by to warn against loud noises. No smoking in the apartments - most have patios so just step outside.
We are a mother and daughter team from Canada with Jamaican roots. We love to travel back and forth between Toronto and Montego Bay often for business and enjoyment. So we've purchased and remodeled a few apartments located on the North Coast! Looking forward to helping out any travelers visiting beautiful Jamaica - happy to give advice and recommendations!
