I drove from Kingston to the villa before the guests arrived to discover a leak in a bathroom that caused the bottom of two doors to swell and touch the floor. The guests declared that the villa was above their expectations and they would be returning in the future. However, they did not wish to be disturbed by workmen fixing problems. They were great guests and left the villa clean and tidy. I thank them sincerely for such a wonderful review. The problem was fixed after they departed.

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Columbus Heights. I agree the views are spectacular.
The housekeeper should clean and change linen twice a week and I apologise if this didn't happen. I am investigating why you paid for linen to be washed as we have a big supply of towels and linen in the apartment and this should not have happened. As explained in my email, I am prepared to re-imburse you the cost of the laundry and as suggested by you, will deduct the cost from your next holiday at Columbus Heights. Any personal laundry is of course paid by the guest. I look forward to your return to Columbus Heights in the New Year.

"I absolutely love this apartment!"
It is super cute and comfortable. What a bargain!!! I love how the apartment opens up to welcome the breath taking view of the bay. I relaxed on the gazebo and watched two ships dock during my stay.… More
Thank you for your positive review. Yes, I agree the view is absolutely magical. It's amazing to watch the cruise ships from the gazebo, what an experience.
Although, the hill is a killer, it only takes 10 minute leisurely walk down the hill and your in the heart of Ochi, where the market, shops, bars and restaurants and the beach are at at your fingertips. Just hop in a local taxi for 300 Jamaican dollars (approx)£2.50 to take you up the hill.
Hope to welcome you back to Columbus Heights in the near future.
