About our home

This is my unassuming getaway in the middle of the city. Inside is nice and homey and my favorite part is the large balcony that my friends and I never want to leave. Everything is included in this apartment including a washer and dryer. I keep most of my things at my parents home near by so there is ample space for your things. Once my visitors can pry themselves from the couch or the lounging balcony, this cozy apartment is only 5 minutes walk from Bob Marley Museum, shopping and dining. Walk another 10 minutes to the world’s 4th best ice cream according to National Geographic! This is at the historic Devon House. It’s a 5 minute drive to the National Stadium and Arena where we have our famous track and field meets and concerts. Feel like a spa day? The world renowned Jencare Day Spa is less than a one minute walk away. I can also guide you on all the wonderful local things to do in and out of the city!
If you are a remote worker and feel like working with a change of scenery that's not my home, co-working spot or a cafe, you'll have access to my well lit, private office space that is located about 10 minutes drive from home.
Occasionally I will be able to arrange discounted stays or free day access for you by private beaches in other parts of the island. (Not always available in these pandemic times)

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

In one of the most sought after neighbourhoods in Kingston because of it's proximity to everything. Close to historical sites like the Bob Marley Museum, Devon House, King's House, The Governor General's home, Hope Gardens and such. They're all walking distance if you feel like a stroll. Entertainment is not far in any direction as restaurants, wine bars and cafes are all close by. The international and world renowned Jencare Day Spa is just next door. Supermarkets are 5 minutes away. The beautiful blue mountains are visible from here and not too far of a drive. The closest beach is about 45 mins away either at one of the Cays of the coast of Kingston, or a drive to the north coast.
