About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

When I first got to the apartment in the Palmyra, I found myself amazed by the beauty and luxury with which it was built. But then, after being there for a couple of hours, I found so much more. I found that the people were welcoming and open, very attentive and helpful, trying every moment to make my experience the best. I felt home, warmth, and then I realized that this was the closest feeling to being in Paradise on earth. The apartment itself is beautiful, the view is amazing, you can just sit on the balcony for a while and get lost in the ocean and the palm trees view. Then there is the private beach, with all the mixtures of blues and greens, and the water is always warm by the sun shinning all day long, it really makes you want to get a splash.

The Pool and the Jacuzzi are perfectly located in the middle of the first and second tower, making the ocean view the main attraction; you can forget about everything else, sitting in the Jacuzzi relaxed looking at the horizon and the Gazebo located half way inside the beach.

The best part is the resort is still in the development stage and you have the place to yourselves. No waiting for elevators beach chairs towels or help from the staff. It can be like your own private oasis. Great for Families and Romantics.

They ask me to write about the property in two paragraphs, and these are the things that come to my mind when I think of it. I know you will feel the same way and I can't wait for you to enjoy as much as I do when I visit this place.

Why DR THOMAS SHEA chose Jamaica

Since I saw the project being built a couple of years ago, I knew this was going to be one of the best developments in the Caribbean so far. I love the sun and the beach vacation, and for me as a keen golfer, having three of the most beautiful golf courses around and having privileges as a result of buying the property were a determining factor. I love the culture, the food and the warmth of the Jamaican people, and I couldn't think of a better place to go when I want to have it all.

What makes this apartment unique

The place is comfortable and very nice to be in. You have the freedom to cook your own food if you feel like it, sit on the sofa and read for a while or just watch TV. You can go out to the balcony and enjoy the fresh air, the water view, and then you can have a nice relaxing bath in the tub conveniently located close to your bed. I can assure you will feel like home; sometimes it can feel a little uncomfortable leaving your own house, because you are used to the comfort and modern conveniences of todays life. Here you will find that and more, the self-controled digital thermostat gives you the freedom to set and maintain a comfortable room temperature; the rain shower gives the exact amount of pressure to massage your body when you take a bath, not to mention the Bosch appliances that give you the simplicity of modern life.

Living the good life!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jun 27, 2014

This bear and her husband had the pleasure of staying on the beautiful northern shores of Jamaica, in the Rose Hall area. This private one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo at Palmyra offered incredible views of the ocean and tranquil surroundings throughout our stay. The condo was nicely appointed with upgraded Bosch appliances and furnishings. Being on the fifth floor, we had a lovely balcony that allowed views of the ocean, as well as the mountains. We were happy to see a washer/dryer which came in handy for wet towels and clothing. Wifi and cable television worked well, as did the dual air conditioners in the bedroom and living room. We loved the shower; great water pressure and a fabulous shower head that I am ready to install at home! We had no trouble getting onto “island time”, waking up in the comfy king size bed, sipping Blue Mountain coffee on the balcony each morning, and lazing around the incredible pool area or swimming in the blue waters on the private beach. We had our choice of places to relax, whether it was under a palm tree on the secluded beach, one of the many pool deck chairs, or even the comfy couches under the cabana next to the pool. To say the staff was friendly is an understatement. From the concierge to the maintenance man, Victor, all became our friends quickly during our stay. One of the gentlemen scaled a ladder to the top of a palm tree to bring us fresh coconuts. He craftily used his machete to open it up so that we could enjoy the coconut water that spilled from inside. The location of the condo was excellent. While we had complete serenity at the resort, we had a world of fun adventures nearby. A scenic drive to Ocho Rios, or a short drive to Montego Bay’s famous Hip Strip and Doctor’s Cave Beach were all possible. Golf courses abound in this area, and they were simply exquisite and very challenging. There were several dining options nearby, whether it was to eat authentic Jamaican food in nearby food shacks such as Scotchies or Far Out Fish, or fine dining at the Half Moon Bay Resort, just a half mile up the road, we found the possibilities were plenty. We ate ocean front on most evenings, even being so close to the water that we could put our feet in at the Chill Out Hut. We even found a delightful English pub called Robbie’s Kitchen with a wonderful staff and excellent food at the small shopping center up the road. Our most exciting find was the Café Blue, a lovely coffee shop in the Rose Hall Shoppes that served excellent coffee, sandwiches, and gelato. Our stay in Jamaica was such a pleasant one that it was difficult to return home.

Excellent! 4.6/5 -

Nice apartment - but site under construction

  • 4 of 5

Apartment is as advertised. Very comfortable. Owner very responsive. But be aware - the complex is under construction. No pool, no hot tub, elevators worked about half the time, wifi was intermittent, water turned off occasionally. Listing did not mention any of this. Nor did owner's communications. One needs to be resilient. Caveat Emptor.

Owner's Response: We sent this e mail prior to arrival to all guests:I WRITE TODAY TO LET YOU KNOW THAT WE HAVE CONSTRUCTION GOING ON AT THE PROPERTY. THE CONDO IS PRICED LOW AS TO REFLECT THIS ISSUE. THIS IS STRICTLY DURING THE DAY! I BELIEVE YOU ARE GETTING AN AMAZING CONDO RENTAL,, AT AN AMAZING PROPERTY , AT A ONCE IN A LIFE TIME RATE. I JUST HAD A PAST GUEST COMPLAIN AND SHE SAID SHE WISH SHE KNEW BEFORE RESERVIG OUR CONDO. SO I AM REACHING OUT TO GUESTS PRIOR TO THEIR ARRIVAL RE THE CONSRTUCTION ON SITE. THE PALMYRA IS UNDERGOING SOME RENOVATIONS CURRENTLY. THE CONDO BEACH N POOL ARE AMAZING. THE PLACE IS SAFE SECURE AND CLEAN. YOU CAN NOT REPLICATE THIS PRICE AND THIS CONDO ANYWHERE IN JAMAICA. BUT STILL I WANT MY GUESTS TO BE HAPPYAND AWARE. YOURS TRULY, DOC SHEA The work is almost finished and the hotel part of palmyra is set for grand reopening in July 2017.
