About Jacqueline Jennings
Jamaican couple sharing our vacation home.
Why Jacqueline Jennings chose Ocho Rios
We bought this property because of the spectacular view of the ocean and the city of Ocho Rios. It is also centrally location to many variety of attractions and restaurants.

The view was amazing from the apt. Everything was clean and furnished well and staff was very helpful. Didn't do a lot of cooking enjoyed the local food in the restaurants. We walked a lot to different places and used a local taxi by Kelly 876-810-5950. He was always available and very informative and reasonably priced. He will take you on any tour or wherever you wanted to go. He was especially needed for the hills to the top of our apt building. We recommend doing the Jamaican bobsled ride at Mystic Mountain and Irie Blue Hole river falls. Both were amazing and fun. Will definitely be back.
We had great time!
Jamaica is great! Stay was wonderful, the view from the balcony is probably the best there is! This apartment is on the top of a very steep hill. My husband and I exercise and run 5k but climbing up was still quite a challenge. Music from the nearby port can be real loud till 2 or 3 in the morning. Our housekeeper Cherry was awesome. I called her from home and asked to fix dinner for us on the first night and she did a great job. Next morning she came and walked us to the grocery store and connected us with a driver that served us for the rest of our stay at a very resonable rate. This apartment is good, but it's asmall condo in a middle class neighborhood, so if you're looking for a luxury accommodation this is probably not it. For us it worked just fine, we had our meals on the balcony every day enjoing the view. It was clean and safe.
The property is worth what I saw on line. The beds were comfortable and had enough utensils to work around with. We had fresh towels the 1st morning and requested no more.
Will be back.
Breath-taking view and very comfortable apartment
My fiancee and I stayed at this property over the Christmas holiday of 2016. I am a native of Jamaica but this was my first time staying in Ochi for an extended time. The owner was very responsive to emails and everything was easy to arrange. We even got a reminder email containing directions to the apartment and wifi password prior to arrival. The complex itself is very secure with a 24hr security guard. There is a collection of other properties within the complex; however, our particular unit was towards the top of the complex in phase 5 on a steep hill. This was not a problem as it provided ample exercise for my fiancee and me; but there is a well paved roadway with full vehicle access (you can pay for taxis to drop you off in front of your unit if you so desire). The apartment was very spacious, open layout, full kitchen, shower and a king size bed. We had a balcony with our unit from which we could look out at the beautiful Caribbean sea, the cruise ships and tourist attractions along the port (truly beautiful view). The apartment is within walking distance of the downtown and literally across the street from a shopping village, Margaritaville, restaurants, and cambio along with other shops. We walked to Dolphins Cove and Dunns River from the complex as well (40 mins walking, 10 mins drive).
We truly enjoyed our stay here. The only suggestions I would have would be for the property managers to (re-)stock the kitchen with a few items such as seasonings and oils, matches/lighter for the stove. But otherwise, great place, very clean, great customer service and very reasonably priced!! Definitely beats staying at a resort!!!!!
I stayed 9 nights, the condo looks just like what you see online.. clean and stocked with the essentials ..the views are breathtaking .. I enjoyed the option to watch Netflix too! I spent most mornings and evenings on the Balcony,
You can feel the sea breeze throughout the day and night, it's dreamy..
communication was easy and jaqueline responds ASAP .. ms cherry and mr Jackson were kind and pleasant to deal with..
I will be back soon..

Amazing Home Away From Home
This sweet and cozy hideaway is just as perfect as the beautiful view of Ocho Rios. After staying at a resort in August, I was not impressed. While planning my return to Jamaica in September, I decided to check out the Home Away app and I stumbled across this little piece of paradise. The apartment is not far from downtown Ocho Rios but it is safe and secluded when you simply want to unwind. The décor is perfect, the apartment is clean, and spacious. Cherry the housekeeper is great and a pleasant person. I can’t say enough great things about this place. Scheduling is a breeze, the price is perfect and Mr. & Mrs. Jennings are simply the best. My recent stay was the end of October, and it’s truly my home away from home. No complaints at all and yes I will be returning sooner than later. One last thing, the sunrise will steal your heart.
