Once you walk into the apartment it is like walking on a cloud everything has been updated to the max. This place is in the heart of Ochi Rios across the street from Margaritaville and 2-3 min walking distance to shops, bus line and grocery stores. Everything was cleaned and arranged in tact when my party walked in I never had a problem and actually had a beautiful view of Columbus Heights at night from the balcony. I have been to Jamaica 6 times in the past year and this is the best place I have stayed in. Big up your self Kenita you have a winner. I will recommend this place to anyone I know who will be traveling to Jamaica by the way if you want to book please do so because her place is booked out !
