The best thing about Nancy’s place is how at home you feel. It’s the first time I rented a room in a home and Nancy really made me feel welcome. Her local knowledge is excellent and she got me involved in a few local events which were great fun. The home is in a nice, quiet, residential area. There’s a 15 min walk to supermarkets, atm and restaurants. The bed was so comfortable and I had everything I needed including wonderful fruit and coffee in the mornings. I’ll take great memories from Kingston. Thanks Nancy!

I spent 3 weeks at her place and it was a very comfortable stay and i got to meet a lot of her nice friends and family. Definitely recommend staying with her and the three friendly dogs !!

I had a great stay at Nancy's beautiful and spacious house. Nancy was very friendly, communicative and helpful. Her house is located a quiet and safe neighborhood in Jack's Hill. You can enjoy the scenic view over the city and the hills surrounding Kingston. Taxis are close by and can take you into town. A mall and several shops are located within walking distance. Nancy was a wonderful host and I fully recommend a stay in her Arty Home in Jack's Hill.

You want to visit Kingston? Nancy's is the place to be. She owns a wonderful home in a peaceful, safe and central neighbourhood in Kingston. Also this is where we had the best bed and shower in weeks :-). A shopping mall is nearby, and a taxi (or Nancy if she has time) takes you to the centre in about 5 minutes. Nancy is a very sweet and interesting woman. Her house if ull of great artwork (made by Nancy herself). Definitely recommended if you want to stay in Kingston!

We cannot thank you enough for our most wonderful stay in Kingston at your Jack's Hill. We learned and love the history of your home and family. Your stories and poetry we will cherish forever. Our Aunt Phil is a prize and we will hold her close to our heart forever. Nancy you are the true host of hosts. The mineral pool, Port Royal and outdoor movies. Memories forever.

We stayed with Nancy for two weeks and can only strongly recommend you stay with her! The house is spacious and gorgeous, well-equipped and a taxi can take you into town. Jack's Hill is quiet and residential away from the bustle of Kingston, but only a short drive to Hope Road. The en suite room is very clean and spacious as well. Nancy is super easy-going, sociable and even took us grocery shopping, to yoga in the Botanical Gardens, and swimming in mineral baths. Nancy became like family to us! Thank you Nancy!
