This was a perfect place for a vacation in Jamaica. We did not want the noise and congestion of central Ocho rios; on the other hand, other options further East were not convenient to the best beaches, shopping, or restaurants. The condo's little ocean beach was very pleasant with nice snorkel-viewable fish, while the condo's pool is great for a quick cooling dip, or for pool-side lounging. The condo itself is comfortable and comes with complete "accessories", specifically kitchen, cable TV, small balcony, iron and hair dryer, games, books, snorkel gear, etc. The location is very good, a grocery store, Glenn's restaurant (OK, not great), jerk centre (quick meals, beer), and the top notch Toscanini's restaurant within short walk across the road (take care - busy). Marian, the host, was very helpful and informative by email or phone. The housekeepers were also very helpful and cooperative. If you can adjust to left-side driving (not very hard, most times there is enough traffic that you just need to follow a leader....), a rental car is useful to get downtown, Dunn's, etc. Our favorite beach was Reggae Beach, next door, reachable on foot but useful by car to come and go. Always call ahead to restaurants - many of the good ones listed in non-recent guides and even online blogs have closed. US visitors with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) accounts: download the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Voice add-on: calls to US are free, calls in Jamaica or other places like Europe are very inexpensive but you need to put some $$ on the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Voice account. I suspect (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) would also work - these are through your computer or tablet and the WiFi connection. Of course this is not the same as a cellphone since you (mostly) can't take it with you. I don't know if (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Voice will work through a smartphone-WiFi connection. Best WiFi using a separate USB-WiFi adapter, long antenna cable extension, and a high gain "stick" antenna dangling over the balcony rail. It's best to have some documentation specifically describing that you are renting a private condo unit located within a specifically named condo complex, with the specific street address and other details. Jamaican Immigration was not happy with the airbnb receipt's description. Fortunately I had the host's check-in information, and ultimately we were let into Jamaica. The problem her is that while the rental is from the host, your payment is to airbnb. It is the latter that needs to review and amend its procedures for overseas rentals.

Response from Marian:
Hi George: Thanks so very much for your thorough review!!! Airbnb, please note George's experience having a hard time getting past Jamaica Immigration officials, and please amend your paperwork that you email to guests going from one country to another.. I do hope other Airbnb hosts in Jamaica are not having this same difficulty with their overseas guests. George, you're welcome to return at any time. Best, Marian

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit in Marians Appartement. Die Küche hatte alles was man brauchte, vom Balkon konnte man den Pool und das Meer sehen. Die Klimaanlage war nagelneu und funktionierte perfekt. Die Schlüsselübergabe verlief einwandfrei und Marian ist eine super nette Gastgeberin. Auf der anderen Straßenseite sind ein paar Restaurants, ein Supermarkt und ein Autoverleih. Wir würden jederzeit wieder dort buchen. Vielen Dank für alles.

I was born and grew up in Jamaica, just 30 miles away from Chrisanns Beach Resort. My childhood memories are filled with visits to the beaches on Jamaica's north coast. I've been living in New York City since 1998, working in public relations in the non profit sector, and more recently, as a college instructor. I also make jewelry and quilts, and sell these at craft fairs around New York City. I visit Jamaica several times each year and spend part of my vacations at the beach while I'm there. My condo at no. 10 Chrisanns Beach Resort is now my creative retreat from the hustle and bustle of New York City. I plan to spend more time painting the breathtaking scenery around the north coast, using this beachfront condo as my base.
