Thank you for your interest in our studio apartment which is located at Seawind On the Bay, a gated community in Freeport, which is the safest residential area of Montego Bay.

The property is situated right next to the ocean and Montego Bay Yacht Club & Restaurant, as well Hard Rock Cafe Beach and Secrets Hotel.

Location is a short taxi ride (15 minutes) from the airport, 10 minutes to downtown Mobay. Closest Beach is across the road @ Hard Rock Cafe Beach (free access with provided card).

The space
Simple and cozy studio with updated interior and furniture.

Freeport is the safest residential neighborhood in Montego Bay. It is located on peninsula surrounded by the ocean.

There is a beach across the road @ HardRock Cafe & Beach, which is free with card provided (as well 10% of your bill in beach's restaurant), otherwise 6$. Also there are more beach options by Secrets or Sunsplash Beach Hotels, also in walking distance, as well famous Aquasol and Dr Cave Beach ($6) about 10 minutes away. Please note, that you wont be able to access Secrets hotel unless you buy a day pass (ask for special deal which we were able to negotiate)*, except for the spa.
*Highly recommended, their water circuit and massages are amazing!

There are some excellent dining options within a walking distance as well. Yacht Club & Restaurant (closest), Hard Rock Cafe, HouseBoat Grill Restaurant (chef is awesome and has only one hand!), and Montego Freeport Shopping Center.

Within 5-10 min cab drive you can reach Jerky's (jerked chicken anyone ?), Fairview Plaza with restaurants, grocery store, pharmacy and coffee shops.

Pier 1 Club is also close by and great option for dinner and dancing ( most active Wed and Fri nights).

Famous Hip Strip (clubs, restaurants, casino and some hustlers of course) and Dr. Cave Beach (oldest and prettiest beach of Montego Bay) is within 7-10 min drive from Seawind/Freeport.

Guest access
Full access. It is all yours !

Equipped kitchen, some appliances, apartment comes fully furnished.

We can arrange a private driver and professional tour guide anywhere on the island.

Airport pick up is $30 (one way) and $50 return, we wait for you as long as it takes.

VERY IMPORTANT: Beach card replacement cost is $100 USD. Please don't lose it, otherwise it will be charged against your security deposit.

Please treat our place as your own.

1.Please turn off the AC, every time you are leaving the apartment.
2.Strictly no smoking of any kind in the apartment however you are more than welcome to smoke outside on the patio or by common areas on the property.
3.It is very (very!) important not to leave any food items outside of the fridge at any time. Jamaican ants are always hungry and they also bite. Same goes with garbage, it better be packed in plastic bags and disposed on daily basis.
4.For internet access, please, see details provided or note on the fridge.
Crossed 0 is zero, not a crossed letter O. :). It is also provided on the back of the modem. Cable TV works when you press "Cable TV" on the remote.

Please relax and enjoy what Jamaica can offer, it is a magical country full of amazing and happy people, unless of course they are trying to hustle you a bit. :)

This is the safest location in Montego Bay (or Mobay), Jamaica on par with all inclusive hotels nearby. Community is fully gated with 24 hour security on premises, as well office staff during business hours.

It is an unique property on the water with a view of yachts and cruise ship terminal. It looks magnificent and somewhat unreal, when these "monster" ships are attempting to park by the pier across the bay.

Are you hungry ?

You can stop by Montego Bay Yacht club & Restaurant which is 3 minutes away on foot. Other options are Hardrock Cafe (across the road) and Houseboat Restaurant & Grill (5 minutes away in route taxi).

Grocery shopping is available @ Fairview plaza 5-7 minutes short route taxi ride from the place, a well cinema theater, pharmacy and hardware store.

I'm one of the good guys. :) I need to travel more, that's for sure ! Originally from Russia, spent some time in US (Kentucky, UT, West Coast), then off to Jamaica for a while and now back in Miami. I like playing soccer (or proper football :) ) and swimming, my favorite band is morcheeba (original). I can eat anything and everything, pea soup (russian recipe with sour cream) is my favorite. I lived in Jamaica for 6 years and learnt quite a bit in the process, don't hesitate to ask any questions before your arrival: 1. What to do in Jamaica, what to expect ? Please read the section about specific dining, entertainment in area where property is located. Please keep in mind that Jamaica is a third world country with excellent tropical weather and beaches. One might experience a cut of electricity/water, internet service at any time day or night, albeit these events are rare, they can happen. It is the same all over the island even during a stay in five star hotels in Jamaica. It might take a while to resolve the same by the utility company or internet company. It is common to come across mosquito, flies & tropical bugs, cockroaches, lizards and other representative of Jamaican flora. We wish we can control all this, but regretfully it is beyond our (or anyone’s else) reach. Should you encounter any problems, please contact us and we will do our best to resolve the same in timely manner. 2. Myth and Reality: Is Jamaica a dangerous country ? Some areas of Jamaica are not recommended to visit especially after sunset. On the plus side, all our apartments are located in safe, gated communities with 24 hour security. It is quite safe walk around in the area and to take public transportation elsewhere, but it is also important to exercises basic caution (You are no longer in Kansas, Dorothy!) and be aware of your surroundings at all time. Any specific questions ? Please let us know, we know the island inside and out. 3. Is Jamaica expensive ? Jamaica is somewhat expensive, especially if compared to United States. Gas, groceries (especially imported ones), real estate are not cheap. Due inefficiency of Jamaican power plants, the cost of electricity is amongst one of the most expensive in the world. Therefore, it is not easy to offer affordable accommodation, but we still trying out best. We ask our guests to help us conserve energy by turning AC and lights off when not used or when leaving our place. Thank you in advance. 4. Additional recommendations, things to note: 4.1 Don’t exchange money at the airport, it is a rip-off. Your taxi driver will gladly accept payment US & EURO*. Best way is to get them from ATM or Cambios around town, but not from the street vendors who can run very quickly ! *Please check official exchange rate before leaving your home country: (Website hidden by Airbnb) -> Rate & Fees -> Foreign Exchange Rates 4.2 If you need to stay connected local sim card (Digicel or Flow) is cheap and easy to get, you can also buy data plans on daily/weekly/monthly basis. It is affordable, but you must follow the rules to activate the plan to avoid your money to disappear very quickly, we have learnt this the hard way. :) 6. What is included in price paid for your stay ? You are renting a furnished apartment. It has equipped kitchen, some appliances and some basic necessities (towels, hair dryer, iron). Run out of something ? Please buy your own. We can help with transportation or perhaps even arrange a delivery at additional cost. We can provide additional services (maid, cook, laundry, masseuse, etc) as well, the cost will be extra and not included in the cost of your stay. We only clean the apartment before your arrival and after your departure.
