Property description

Montego Bay condo - studio, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2. This charming and cozy 14th floor studio apartment with balcony has a spectacular panoramic view across the bay of Montego Bay from the mountainous coastline around to the white sand beach of Doctor's Cave. The pulse and the rhythms of the resort strip rise from the street below without disturbing. Entry to the beach is right across the street. There is a restaurant and bar on the property adjacent to the full-size swimming pool. To pick up drinks and snacks there is a convenience store in the building near the entrance. Please Note: even if the dates desired are showing reserved, don't hesitate to contact me and check availability.

Studio, view and location: This 14th floor studio apartment and balcony has a panoramic view extending from the famous Doctor’s Cave beach across the bay of Montego Bay and along the mountainous coastline. The spectacular view towards the west is a daily show of the changing effects of the sunlight on the azure sea ending in an enchanting sunset and the thick veil of a tropical night. The rusted red roofs directly below are not shabby but rather neglected. They house the carefully preserved and unoccupied Casa Blanca Hotel, which was the 1940s haunt of film stars like Errol Flynn and Richard Widmark. It all makes for dreaming nostalgic dreams of Montego Bay in its halcyon days. Try knocking on the gate and the owner or his agent may let you in for a viewing.

The lower entrance to the building is located on the resort strip where there are bars, souvenir shops and restaurants in close vicinity. The studio itself is quite "retro" in feeling with a large four-poster bed which sleeps 2, 1960's furniture and fittings, cable TV, wifi internet access, private bathroom, fully-equipped kitchenette with refrigerator, stove, microwave oven, toaster, electric kettle, coffee maker, cookware, dishes and glasses.

What to expect in Montego Bay Club: In this studio you will have more freedom and the environment will be less predictable than in an all-inclusive hotel. At the same time there are no bed-and-breakfast restrictions on eating times or arrival and departure times. You are completely free. If you aren’t satisfied I would like to know, please contact me and I will do everything possible to improve the situation. This is a destination for people who love Jamaica; its beauty as well as its people and in its imperfections can find humor. Don’t be hesitant to be friendly but ignore the hawking and hustling of the street sellers and shop employees. They are annoying indeed but harmless.

Transportation, Shopping and Tours: There are regular JUTA taxis at fixed-distance fares for up to and including four people available all day before the entrance on the resort strip. Entry into Doctor’s Cave Beach costs US$6 per day per person with multiple exits and entries. Beach umbrellas are extra. There are many restaurants and bars on the beach so there really is no urgency to exit except to find less expensive prices. The crafts market is within walking distance. A small convenience store is located in the building. Large supermarkets are a taxi ride away and various tours can be arranged from the agencies on Gloucester Ave or better yet enquire at the airport on arrival.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: I am a well-travelled and multinational Jamaican. The streets of Toronto, Amsterdam, Paris and Naples, Italy are even more familiar to me than the streets of Montego Bay. This studio and its view is my own little piece of the Jamaica that I love. If you speak Dutch or French and prefer to communicate in your own language, please feel free. If you speak Italian, then help me keep in practice because I almost never speak it anymore. Whatever the language the welcome I offer is the same.

Why the Owner Chose Montego Bay:
A more convenient location in Montego Bay and indeed in Jamaica cannot be found. The airport is 5 minutes away by taxi. The beach is across the street. Restaurants and bars are within walking distance. Taxis are available at the entrance. A mini-supermarket is in the building. There is a telephone operator and security personnel on duty 24 hours a day.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The view. The view. And again the view. It is unsurpassed.
