I definitely recommend staying at Marian's apartment. It is much nicer and cozier than the pictures reveal. It is very clean. The lack of air conditioning was not an issue, the fans work very well and I was very comfortable. Although its a bit tricky to get the right temperature, the hot water worked well. The location is very convenient. There are multiple nice restaurants around. Right next to it is a delicious bakery. Of course, Devon House and the Bob Marley museum are very close by. It is about a 20 minute walk to Sovereign Center, which has a grocery store. I did not talk to Marian very much, but she made herself available at all times. When we did talk, she was very sweet and helpful. Thank you so much, Marian! Hopefully I will be back soon.

Miriam's place was very clean with modern decor. It is much bigger in person as the pics does no justice. My stay was very pleasant. I've found my home away from home. Will definitely be go to place when I visit Jamaica.

As an American, I feel that I should say the following: If you must have air-conditioning or hot water throughout, look elsewhere. Of course, you're visiting Kingston and not hiding in a Montegro Bay resort, so you're already marked as a more hardy sort, so you'll love this place. Make no mistake, I think that Kingston is a rough and tumble place for visitors to experience, but having gone on to Nassau after, I wouldn't have traded it for anything. A year from now I'll miss Kingston more than Nassau. This place is a detached apartment (there are 3 other long-term rentals, with delightful folk) that serves as a short-term residence only ~10 minutes from Devon House and less to the Bob Marley museum. I imagine most western tourists would just call a cab to get them to wherever (and I found a delightful one named Dave across the street) but this is also a capital place to take the bus to wherever you wish to go in Kingston (I went from the closest top ((SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) your search for TGI Friday - to Port Royal without issue). Write down your routes both ways and you'll be fine - this serves as a an excellent and safe compound from which to start your daily campaigns - note that (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) says the price for a bus pass is $125 Jamaican, but until legislation passes it's only $100. As for the host, Marian, and her sons, I cannot speak too highly - they were both respectful of a desire for privacy while also conveying a concern that my stay was as pleasant as could be had. I honestly can't think of any way that they could have been improved as hosts as they managed the delicate balance of checking on my welfare daily with respecting my privacy with aplomb. I would heartily recommend this to anyone else who are looking for a safe haven in the chaos that I found Kingston to be. Were I to book a future site, I would probably do so with an eye to spending more time with my hosts as they were as instructive as any person or place I visited elsewhere.

Thanks for the kind words, Jonathan. Just a correction, for the benefit of potential guests.... hot water is included and available in the bathroom but not in the kitchen (maybe by 'hot water not being available throughout', this is what you meant). Also, this flat has ceiling fans in every room, additional floor fan if needed, luxurious queen-sized posturepedic pillow-top mattress, 4 burner electrical stove, large refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, fully equipped modern kitchen, utensils, large plush leather sofa, flat screen LED smart T.V. etc..... I disagree that it takes a hardy sort to enjoy these amenities. Jonathan, A/C could be included if requested but if this was made available the reasonable price enjoyed by guests would have to be increased. Thanks for your tips on taking more professional pics to show the true size and beauty of this listing, really enjoyed our sagacious conversations. Also, I appreciate your offer to be a personal referee to future guests. All the best in the future!
