“Excelent value for money”
Stayed here for 10 days in march 2015 for a family holiday. Found the apartment to be clean and tidy with all accessories needed. Felt secure knowing it is on a gated complex which was manned 24hrs security staff were very friendly. Kids loved the pool and only a short walk to shops and other local amenities. Only down sides of apartments were balcony has very large gaps in so not safe for young children and sofa bed was uncomfortable. Salem was a lovely area to stay in the locals were welcoming and it is only a taxi ride away from ocho rios.
Thank you Jaclyn for a wonderful stay, The condo has everything you require at a more then fair price, pool outside the door , wonderful patio to sit outside and have your morning coffee/tea, there is cable and although not air conditioned the cross breezes from the ocean made it comfortable. The security staff is friendly especially Michael, who is always ready to answer your questions with a smile who is usually working a 12 hour shift for 20 US dollars a day, with one day off ,so don't forget to tip! The condo is located close to Markets, I found the Chinese market in the same strip mall as the Scotia Bank has the largest variety of items at the best cost, and they will exchange your money at a really great rate. Flavors beach is my all time fave, and Sharkey's Beach front restaurant has amazing food and is a great place to enjoy a rum punch and listen to the sounds of the ocean waves at night with a whisper of Reggae to accompany it. There is also a great little Pizza Parlor on the main strip , we stayed for 2 weeks and I was sorry I did not find it sooner and they do up a Canadian breakfast and serve fries as well. The locals are awesome , after 2 weeks we were smiling and waving and calling out hiya's by name. I miss Salem already. There are quite a few bars in the area to visit and enjoy a cold frosty adult beverage on a sunny afternoon and chat with the locals. The condo has a nice size fridge and stove and if you find you have no hot water, do not panic Michael may have to turn it on from outside ( insert tip here), all I can say is its clean, great location to beautiful beaches, shops, restaurants, has laundry facilities and the security/maintenance staff of Michael, Dwight and Carlton really go out of their way to ensure your stay is a happy and safe one..Thank you Sherann for the warm welcome and Jaclyn for affording us our wonderful Jamaican experience..
“Comfortable and affordable for a real Jamaican experience”
The first time I went to Jamaica I stayed at an expensive, all-inclusive resort. I didn't mind it but I didn't feel like I actually got to experience Jamaica. The next time I went down, I decided to explore other accommodations. Now, I've rented homes from homeowners throughout Jamaica, e.g. Negril, Mo' Bay, Ochi, Kingston, and Salem/St. Ann's Bay. I always enjoy the privacy, relaxation, and ability to do whatever I want while on vacation. In all my travels to this beautiful country, Jaclyn's place in Salem has been the best thus far for my family's needs. I was looking for a comfortable but affordable place that was close enough to Ochi but not too close, within walking distance to grocery markets, taxi routes, and the beach, and offered some form of security and laundry service. I found all of this in Jaclyn's apartment. The store and taxi route were right around the corner on the main road. It was a short 15-20 minute ride to Ochi depending on traffic. There was a local public beach located adjacent to Sharky's restaurant (10 minute walk). Sharky's restaurant was also a decent place to eat some seafood on night's where I just didn't feel like cooking. As for Jaclyn's apartment, it provided a relaxing atmosphere. The loft bedroom with a King size bed allowed me to relax and enjoy the breeze that flowed through the window while my son enjoyed some cartoons in the TV room. The kitchen, although less roomy, allowed us to cook full meals throughout our stay. The maintenance/security staff on the property were always helpful and accommodating to our every need. The pool was refreshing. All in all this place was perfect in my books and I would definitely recommend it to my friends and family. If you don't mind doing your own thing and not being catered to 24/7, this is the place for you. If you're looking for comfort and affordability, this is definitely the place for you. I can't say enough as I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here at Jaclyn's apartment.
“A home away from home,”
The apartment was in a great location. Within walking distance from Flavours beach (although I am one to enjoy walking). The only issue we had was with the gas, but this was attended to very quickly and conveniently. I would definitely be making another booking. The security guards were very pleasant also.The stores are also quite close nit, as well as the karaoke bar nearby. The neighbors on the complex were very friendly and the pool was well looked after. I felt quite relaxed and safe here. Thank you so much Jaclyn I would love to make another booking in the future.
Apartment tired and required a good clean,bedding dirty and cookware worn out.Only one bedroom and not a door seperating it from the living area.Whole accomodation was very dissapointing and the decor in the bedroom was more suitable for a child.I spent hours cleaning and washing bedding before use. The cooker is above the fridge and when in use the fridge/freezer defrosts. Tenants and staff were very friendly and helpful and the site in general is very nice to stay at.Suggest the apartment has a make over.
Response from the owner I'm sorry you didn't like your stay. How was the bedding dirty? Are they stained? Which sheets were they, white, gold, blue or all? Sherre-anne takes them to a cleaners after every guest leaves. So perhaps she needs to get a new cleaner? The cookware was only supposed to be temporary until my next visit unfortunatly i've been away longer than intended and I will be going to spruce up the place end of Nov and will be bringing with me new stainless steel pots and pans and new sheets. The apartment is a "loft" style apartment that is why there is no door separating it and that won't change and I painted the upstairs to my liking not what guests would like. This is why there are pictures and a video so everything was available to see how the layout was and what it looked like so shouldn't have been a surprise. The fridge is basically a bar fridge which bothers me as well, and I do intend to change the layout of the kitchen by getting a regular sized fridge and good stove but haven't had the money or time to do the renovation since I only bought the place 2 years ago and haven't been back since march 2011
“Christmas in Paradise”
I stayed the apartment over the holidays with my husband. The apartment is extremely clean and had a great experience with the owner and staff at the unit. It was an unbelievable value for the price, and I would recommend the all my friends and relatives. Thanks Jaclyn for everything :)
“quiet and relaxing getaway.”
This apartment is in a fabulous location. A few minutes walk from the beach,main street, shops, bars and local food vendors. The complex is quiet and relaxing. It is also in a good location for those who wish to see more of the island, it was less than an hour drive to both major towns: montego bay and Ocho rios. I also rented the car available on site so it was easy to travel around to other towns. And the car is in good condition and cheaper than the local car rental places.
Response from the owner Please note the car is no longer available for rent.
