Skip the resorts ... this is the place to stay!
Can't beat the location, safe, secure, and wonderful people. Easy walk to beaches, restaurants (you must try Sharkies), grocery stores, and so much more. Owner was prompt to answer any questions and staff were considerate. Great local taxi and tour guides, I lucked out and had Nick of Nick's Unique Tours Jamaica, take me everywhere! Internet, cable, and air were good - lots of channels to choose from and a pool surrounded by hybiscus. Unit came fully equipped, weekly linen supplied .... it was just a wonderful experience. Very reasonable and relaxing.
Thanks for taking the time to give feedback on the apartment Phil.It was a real pleasure having you stay at the apartment for 3 months.Im really happy that you enjoyed the apartment and the surroundings.
I enjoyed my time in Jamaica but I was disappointed with the apt.
Pros: Everything is clean when you come inside as well as outside. The bed is soft and comfortable. Its close by to a lot of things like supermarkets ,ATM etc.. Walking distance.
The 24 hour security guards are really friendly.
A nice area where you feel safe and there's a maintance person that's always there . You can always ask him questions and he will kindly answer.
Cons: shower is very small and the toilet often leaks. When my partner and I came in the TV wasn't showing clearly until my partner fixed it.At first the gas stove wasn't working and there's no explanation on how to use it for those who aren't used to that type of stove. There's no pantry items as listed in the description box . The pots and pans are very thin if you plan to cook. The knives are very dull , can barely cut anything. Although this is not something that to be controlled but the power glitches at least once a day. Once the power went out and there's no matches in the apt but there's candles. There's 2 safe in the room that's difficult to open.Garbage bags ,toilet paper, tissue are not given as well (just a heads up) neither is dish soap. When we came in we found someone's old pair of shoes in one of the draws . There's a iron but no iron board... The person who picks up the linens however, you don't know when she will come there's no set day where you know she will come for sure its not always consistent. Most of the time when she came to my door she was on the phone that's not really professional.The couches aren't that comfortable and there's a "rug" in the room that looks like a long old thin towel. The microwave you can tell is very old the white parts are yellow and it doesn't warm the food fast enough and the number 3 button doesn't work. In the description states shampoo should be there but there was none ...the blender is old and tiny ,rusty looking its falling apart , can barely blend anything smoothly and not enough cleaning products.As for the WiFi its very weak once you enter the room or go to the bathroom there's barely any signal.The remote in the room doesn't work at all.Curtains are too thin in the living room.
Suggestions: if two people are staying there needs to be two sets of keys. The apartment should state or take pictures of what they have exactly even if its zoomed in.Diffinately need to change the cutlery and if it states something in the description area it should be within the apartment. The apartment should at least come with the basics.
Thanks for providing valauble feedback on the apartment.
I apologize for the short comings, and I promise I will make a list and take care of them. (except the pantry and size of shower) I strive to make the apartment a place where guest will be comfortable and look forward to returning.
Thanks again ,
Month long home away from home
Thank you Osburn for renting us this condo for the month. Location is great, walking everyday to one of the three beaches in the area. The helpful clerks in the shops and the vegetable vendors on the street are all willing to share recipes. The Jamaican people are all wonderful no matter where we go. We have used the local route shared taxis and chatted with everyone on our way to where we were always going when it was to far to walk. The apartment was very sufficient, we did use the ac one day for about an hour to cool it off when there was no breeze. Usually a cross breeze from the windows is all you need. I know many people love the all inclusive vacation because they don't want to cook on vacation but when they are home cooking in the cold weather after a week I am still in my bathing suit jumping in the pool as my dinner is in the oven. And that month doesn't cost more for the 2 of us than a week at the resort standing in line at a buffet. We love to mingle with the local people and the location we have had and the simple life has been a blast. Osburn and his manager Deloris were always on call, the only thing I contacted him for mid way through was to say Thanks and I say it again. Thanks Osburn. It's been a blast , glad we booked early last year since three of the people we met here wanted this condo..........
Thank you Maryann and Ed for staying at the apartment.
Im really happy that you both chose to stay at this particular apartment /location and that you booked early.
It was a real pleasure having you,and hope you will visit again.
