How do I start to thank Sheldon for making our stay so amazing? From picking us up (even though he wasn't feeling 100%), and going out of his way to help us anyway we asked, he really was the perfect host! The property itself was lovely, with everything you could possibly need, a…

"I'm leaving on a jet plane but I KNOW for sure that I'll be back again!"...were the echoes bellowed by Kathryn and her beau as they departed on their journey to our 2nd city, Montego Bay. Kathryn please allow me to thank you kindly for taking the time to share your personal experience from your recent stay with us at "Choose To Be Happy!". I too am very happy to read that you had a wonderful experience. We certainly look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you back in the very near future. I'd recommend Kathryn to any AIRBNB host the world over.

Sheldon was a welcoming host, and was very warm and friendly. He would check in from time to time to make sure everything was okay however this was not overbearing. On the last night of our stay Sheldon took us out to a lovely jamaican resturant which was lovely! The property w…

It was an absolute pleasure having Maxine and her mom, Beryl stay with us whilst on their working vacation in Kingston conducting business and visiting friends and family. Maxine and her mom were absolutely AWESOME house guests. Prior to her arrival and during the period they stayed at "CTBH"; they communicated exceptionally well with us. She's respectful, observant of house rules and an all-round good 'spirited' lady. I'd recommend her 100% as a house guest to any AIRBNB host. We'd be happy to welcome her back anytime!

Dr. Ramsey is no new comer to Jamaica and has visited 'the rock' on numerous ocassions mostly with a concentration on the North Coast. So, this begged me to ask him the question, "Dr. Ramsey, which cool breeze blew you all the way into Kingston?" He responded, 'Frock tail!' Now for those of you who do not know what that is then I'd like to suggest you do an 'internet search'. Doc is one of the coolest and most down-to-earth guests I've ever met. Truly a man after my own heart! Don't ever bother asking him his age because he don't look the number. Thank goodness age is just a number. Doc, I am certainly looking forward to hosting you in the very near future. So, please feel free to reach out to me at your earliest convenience. One Love.

Santa Claus came to town during the first week of New Year's (one week after the festivities ended or so we thought) in the form of "Norman" who in the flesh was actually a "no (URL HIDDEN) instead he gifted his dearest sister and his fiancé with a treat (gift) to stay at CTBH @ EI8HT for the weekend. Ho! Ho! Ho!...What a whale of a time that was for his girls who loved every minute of their gift. Like I told Norman, he's a man after my own heart. Yip! He wasn't there in spirit but he was there in truth. Norman, let's keep the Christmas spirit going all year round from near and far by continuing to send meaningful gifts for the people you care about most. Christmas should not only be a time for gifting but this tradition should be practiced all year round. Thank you and the girls for "Choosing To Be Happy!"

Sheldon is a terrific guy! He made me and my girlfriend feel very welcome by picking us up from town and giving us a full tour of the apartment at arrival. Upon that, he was even so kind to give us an upgrade to a very luxurious apartment in Kingston. This was by far the best sta…

Response from Sheldon Alias Shelly Belly:
This holiday season convinced me that I attract some of...if not the BEST & most interesting guests, any host, could ever dream or ask for and they came in the form of Henok and Lidya from Sweden. Two backpackers on a mission to find more love and passion while exploring the length and depth of the scenic getaways the island has to offer all within a one (1) month period. I'm truly blessed to have met Henok & Lidya from half-way around the world and of all the spaces they could have chosen...they chose happiness!!! To all the Airbnb community, if these guys come knocking....please....pretty please open your doors for these two amazingly awesome human beings.

This place is close to New Kingston, perfect if you have business there like I did. This unit is just like being at home. So cozy and beautiful. I didn't want to leave. Sheldon was so responsive to every request and it was nice that he wanted to meet me and personally let my boy…

Maan-O-Maan!!! My God really sends me the "Best-of-the-Best" guests from around the world is all I really have say. Jasian and Cerise are definitely part of this "B&B" group of persons that have stayed with us during 2016. I've learned never to get in between two people in a chemistry lab with the test tubes bubbling over in between the two people. Get my gist! Aaahhhh! At this point, my only regret is they should have stayed longer. I would sincerely recommend Jasian and Cerise to any Airbnb host the world over and i am certainly looking forward to hosting them again and again.
