It's light and airy and lives up to the photography seen in the listing. Well-maintained, clean and tidy, providing all essential equipment need to make yourself at home including great wifi access . We found the house keeper, neighbours and staff at the front gate very welcoming and friendly which added to the feeling of being secure. Great location for travelling and touring Jamaica's north coast. I would surly recommend this property to family and friends

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      The picture gives a false impression. I had visions of sitting on the front porch sunning it, but, the actual apartment entrance was at the side. Nothing to do with the porch. The picture of the inside gives another impression that there is an upstairs ( bedrooms I assumed) to the apartment but this is not the case it is another holiday home. There is a locked gate at the bottom of the stairs. The accommodation is cute though Also there was nowhere you could sit in the "garden" to take in the sun. Or for kids to play. You could not leave open the front or back door for breeze due to insects flying in (obviously this is out of Claudette's control) The kitchen it self was fine. The oven did not work (Claudette did during a conversation mention that the oven may not work and should contact her if this was the case as she could swap it with the one upstairs) but I did not bother contacting her as could not deal with the hassle, and felt that it was known already about the oven so could have been changed previous to our arrival. ( I could be wrong!!!) Just used the gas rings on top. Although you are not on holiday to watch TV There were times that you stayed in due to some downpours and the choice of TV was not available. The channels were news, news and more news re mostly America. Although news is important you don't want it all day while on holiday. Variations of TV channels needed especially if children on holiday at the apartment (Yes there is a radio there) No children with us on this holiday. Claudette was in contact and happy to assist with what ever we may have needed, I did not advise her about the TV or the oven things as not worth the hassle for us or for Claudette whilst she was not in JA. To much phoning round for Claudette to be doing from England but thought I would mention it here, as well as the customer survey. You may be saying "if that was me, I would've called her but me, I was able to live with these things, they did not spoil my holiday, but think it was worth mentioning on the survey anf this feed back. Security staff were fun and also helpful (All of them). To us Scottys was not all it's cracked up to be. There are better Jerk Centres in and around Ochio The accommodation is in my opinion a bit Isolated without transport, but there are taxis and local mini buses to get you around, the fares are charged at the local rate.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

The villa and surroundings were clean and cosy and would definitely recommend this villa to others. Unfortunately there were a few hick ups during my stay. The garden came across very rude and unwelcoming and although the swimming pool is stated on the website as private this is not the case as the pool is in fact shared with other guests. Apart from that everything else was very coche and the Chris the care taker was on point. Would definitely stay here again! Thank you.
