Rutland Rest is a beautiful open plan one-bedroom apartment in cool Beverley Hills. Nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and surrounded by a lush flower garden, the apartment offers a peaceful and tranquil setting for individuals or couples, with the option of sleeping up to four (using two day beds in the living area).
Conveniently situated in a safe suburb of Kingston, you have the advantage of being away from the bustle and noise, but still very close to the University of the West Indies, Hope Botanical Gardens & Zoo, the Bob Marley Museum, the National Stadium, Liguanea, New Kingston, shopping, cinema, galleries and restaurants, which are all within 5-10 minutes reach by car, or a US$4-5 taxi ride (day charters can be arranged). The apartment is also within walkable distance of two main public transport arteries if you are feeling energetic.
The apartment is light and airy, with its own private verandah. Whether you are on business, visiting family or just experiencing Kingston as part of your vacation, Rutland Rest is the perfect place to escape to at night after the hustle and bustle of the city, or just spend the day relaxing with a book.

Please conserve on energy. It helps the environment, but also energy costs in Jamaica are very high. Remember to turn off water heaters, fans, lights, televisions, ovens when not in use or when leaving the apartment.
We maintain a smoke-free environment in the building and ask that you respect this.
Please enjoy your shower and other water use, but remember that water is a very precious commodity, especially during the dry season.
Please lock the home securely at nights before turning in and when leaving the home.
Kingston is generally a safe place to live, and we are for the most part a friendly and welcoming people. However, we advise caution when inviting new friends/strangers to the apartment, both for your safety and ours. Our cultural context is complex and what may seem like one thing in your country may signal something different here. That said, enjoy your stay and enjoy our Jamaican hospitality!
I'm a socially oriented person, enthusiastic about life, and enjoy discovering new places, people and experiences. I Love the outdoors - you can often find me gardening, riding a bike or hiking in the mountains. I also love travelling and have been hosted by many wonderful people around the world. I know what I like when I stay in a new or familiar place and as your host, I want to help make your stay in Kingston as pleasant and enjoyable as possible.
