Lovely apartment but....

  • 1 of 5
On first impression the apartment is beautiful! I stayed there for 11 days during this period there was heavy rain fall for 9 days straight.

The apartment started to leak initially on the staircase and then it spread to the living area, water bubbles started to form under the wall paper! the cleaner had to put buckets and newspaper down to soak up the water leakage throughout the dining room area.

There was even a leak in the small bedroom where the bed is, which forced my mother to sleep down stairs. The leak spread into main bedroom and the apartment started to get damp.We took upon ourselves to burst water bubbles as we were worried about health and safety because the water leakage was very close to the TV and other electronics.

When I contacted the owner Carolyn she referred to the main office who told me they could not do anything until the rain stopped. I informed Carolyn of what they said , Carolyn's response was "This was the most amount of rain fall that Ocho Rios has seen in nearly 30 years". Carolyn said she would get back to me after she speaks to property manager again.

I never heard anything from Carolyn again! We checked out on the 22nd December and the rain had stopped two days prior to this, no one from office came to look at the apartment once.

I am extremely disappointed by the way the issue was dealt with, I mostly definitely will not stay at this apartment again!!. The first part my vacation was miserable because of the leaking apartment and damp.

The apartment is nice but the leaking roof needs to be sorted out!!!

Owner's Response: I apologize for the lack of response from the Management Office and I have communicated your concerns and displeasure to them. As I indicated, the amount of rainfall that fell, without break over a two week period was unprecedented. The issue of leaking was not limited to my unit or even to the condo complex but was experienced at Sandals Ocho Rios, the Riu Resort and others. The buildings on the island are constructed of concrete which is very porous and normally there is a break in the rainfall which allows the concrete to dry. Unfortunately , there was no break for an 11 day period. This was an anomaly and as I indicated we have not seen this type of rainfall in decades. The unit is in the process of being retrofitted with a waterproof membrane on the roof to address the issue of leaking in the event we should experience this type of rainfall again. Once again I apologize.

Best Decision Ever

  • 5 of 5
After weeks of searching for somewhere to stay and because my friend and I didn't want to stay at a resort, We decided to choose this villa. The owner is super nice and has great communication. When arriving at the rental, it was absolutely wonderful. Very well decorated, clean and gave the home away from home feel I was hoping for. The villa is steps away from everything you could want which really left no need for a car. I have no complaints and had a ball during my stay. I would definitely be staying here again and I would recommend this to everyone. Thanks again!!!

What A View!

  • 5 of 5
I have been visiting Jamaica on and off in the last 10 years and have always stayed at the larger resorts and hotels. Decided to try something a little different this time and choose this condo as the rate was unbeatable and we would be able to prepare our own meals. What a great decision that was! The apartment is beautifully decorated and well maintained. The views are simply spectacular as the property is located on a hill overlooking the Ocho Rios coast. We spent most of our two weeks either lazing on the balcony, by the pool or across the street at Margaritaville in addition to trips to Dolphin Cove and a couple of local restaurants when we were too tired to cook. Lovely apartment, great staff in the office and secure grounds. We will be back!

Best Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Hi Andrew and Carolyn,
Just wanted to say thank you for allowing us to stay at your wonderful home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and fully intend to return sometime next year. Your condo is the perfect get-away and after having stayed at the all-inclusives and couples resorts, we can truly say that this was our most enjoyable stay on the island.
Thanks again,
Carly and Ian
