All bookings are based on double-occupancy. You will have access to the entire apartment (living room/dining room, kitchen and terrace) and will not share the apartment with anyone who is not in your booking party. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the rental agreement, in the event our apartment is not available for use during the period of your booking due to reasons, events, or circumstances beyond our control, we will apply due diligence and good faith efforts to locate a replacement property that equals or exceeds our apartment solely with respect to occupancy capacity (i.e., one bedroom for every two adult persons detailed in your booking), location and value. If such replacement property cannot be found and made available to you, we will immediately return (on a pro rata basis) all payments made by you, whereupon any agreement we have with you will be terminated and you and we will have no further obligations or liabilities in any manner pertaining such agreement.

As you know, during your vacation you will be staying in a private home, not a hotel. The cost of electricity is Jamaica is very high. Consequently, in addition to any energy surcharge that we might have asked you to pay, Ms. Hinds, our housekeeper, has been instructed to turn off lights and air conditioners in the apartment whenever it is vacant. That means if you leave the apartment for the day and leave a light or air conditioning split running, she will turn it off. If you have any question or problem with this instruction, please bring it to our attention immediately. Our aim is to balance your desire to have a comfortable and enjoyable vacation with our need to control overhead costs.

What makes this condo unique

This property is located near enough to the excitement and conveniences of a bustling city center, but it's also far enough away from the hub-bub that it offers peace and quiet and the opportunity for a really relaxing vacation.
