About Jerome MacDonald

Hi not much to say, I’m a regular guy, my family, well half of it anyway is from Jamaica, I spend quite a lot of time there as I fell in love with the place a long time ago, I work quite allot and enjoy heading to Jamaica for the odd month or two and thanks to broadband and mobile 4G I can stay in touch with the UK and work from there, I have set everything up in the apartment so one can reside there indefinitely I have a couple of cars there a Nissan and Land Rover Defender which I can rent at additional cost (there manual and right hand drive).

Jerome MacDonald purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Jerome MacDonald chose Ocho Rios

I love my place in Jamaica, its got everything you need, you can stay here and keep in touch with home via the private hi speed internal and external Wifi High speed broadband internet I have installed, want to go out, head to shades night club, its a 20 meter walk, want to stay in, watch a movie on cable or android TV, fancy a dip, head for the pool, fancy a swim, head to white river beach its a 10 minute walk + its clean, sandy and free, want food? cook something, there's a modern fridge, microwave, stove and hob, blender, pots, pans, blender, toaster etc etc, cant be bothered to cook, walk across the road to "simply the best" restaurant, you get the picture!!

The price I have set is low, but don't expect low quality accommodation, my place is real value for money In my opinion, I believe that this is the most value for money you will get on the north coast,

What makes this apartment unique

Private High speed WiFi both inside the apartment and in the grounds via special external wireless link.

Private Pool.

Close to everything! But Far from hustle and bustle

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent 2 weeks at Jerome’s place and I was very impressed with his professionalism and efficiency. The apartment is well kempt and very good value for money. I was travelling alone as a single female and felt very safe within the gated complex and Jerome went above and beyond to make sure I had all the information needed to safely travel around Ochi. He also has great links with some of the locals who were very friendly and accessible, if required. Good friendly atmosphere would definitely recommend to others. I am hoping to book again beginning of next year.

My husband and I stayed at this place when we went for a vacation in jamaica becasue it was out first trip to Jamaica. The apartment was very nicr with all the extra that we wanted such as good security, pool within the complex, WiFi and it's within easy transport link. The cleanliness of the place was very nice and the landlord was easy to contact and a very friendly person. If I return to Jamaica I will be staying there again.

We enjoyed ourselves so much in Jamaica, what helped was a fantastic place to go home to after a adventurous day / evening out. Jerome's place was just right and had everything we needed, the location was perfect and we will definitely stay again

Fab apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was excellent, clean and fresh and had great wifi connection. Communication was great with the owner who lives abroad in London, he also provided us with a rental vehicle so we could explore the island. We also felt safe as it was in a gated community and walking distance to a local shop selling food & drinks.

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying this, Jerome's place was amazing, check in was easy, he has one of those coded locks so we gave him our own code and he programmed it for us so there was no need to carry any keys when we went out, he has thought of everything, the WIFI if excellent and I could stay in touch with the UK with ease. The place was clean and we had everything for a great trouble free two week stay, I'm glad i picked here as i was rather disapointed with the last apartment i stayed in in Jamaica, no doubt you will see us again Jerome thanks Ella

Car: not necessary

Hi my apartment is located a stones throw away from restaurants , clubs and bars, its also a 5 minute drive to the nearest beach. the area is semi rural, and not a tourist trap like main street Ocho Rios, however not far enough away for you go be in that environment if you like, you can get a taxi for less than $1 which will take you into town, which takes about 5 minutes, and the taxis run all day/night very frequently. I think its the best place out of the way but close to everything.




Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $138.49

No Smoking Please Inside the house, on the balcony is ok (I’m a non-smoker and don't want yellow walls).

No Pets, so if you managed to smuggle rover in your suitcase he has to stay outside.

Please respect others who live in the complex, high spirits on a Friday/Saturday night is ok but a party every night will attract complaints, and believe me you don’t want a Jamaican to start cussing you, it’
