From the moment we arrived at Daniela's unit #24 at Chrisann's we were blown away and knew that this would be the holiday of a lifetime (and we weren't wrong!) Everything was perfect! Firstly Chrisanns is a glorious place - just a short 10 min drive from Ochi town centre and all the tourist attractions, but in a quiet area, with not too many tourists around. The staff are amazing - from the friendly daily housekeepers Cathy and Charmaine (who go above and beyond to help) to the security guard Everton and the fab groundskeeper Trevor. The grounds are immaculate, the pool is amazing and the cove beach area is perfect to relax. Daniela's apartment (#24) is literally the best unit in the place. It's bright, colourful and full of her beautiful Caribbean inspired artwork. She's thought of everything, from the mod cons such as toaster, coffee maker, blender, air con etc to the small things such as board games, a safe, hammocks, binoculars and everything in between! You really won't want for anything in this place. The bed is comfy and the fabulous window beds mean this apartment can easily sleep 4-6 people. The views are to die for and she has decorated and furnished this place to an impeccable standard. Having travelled quite a bit, I can honestly say this is the best place I've ever been. You've got to see it for yourself! We didn't want to leave. Locally there are a couple of nice restaurants/cafés/street jerk places within walking distance and it's super easy to get into ocho rios town. Absolutely 5* holiday. We have already started saving for our next trip and will surely be returning for many years to come!
We had just spent 2 weeks at another VRBO, and although it was nice ,it was a 6/10 to this rental, which is a 10/10.
1st : the place is very clean, comfortable, and very well equiped.
2nd : the site is perfect ; overlooking the ocean and the pool; listening to the ocean at night and feeling the light breezes. (we were able to keep all windows open because of screens).
Had a hard time deciding between a hammock , a comfortable lounge chair, or a very comfortable window seat.
3rd : All the staff were fantastic, welcoming,friendly, helpful,but never intrusive.
4th : Very convenient to have a store ,a jerk chicken cafe and a restaurant right across the road.Plus Ocho Rios , a very short cab ride away. And speaking of the road, we never heard the outside traffic at all.
As I have said "THE PERFECT PLACE" !
My Wife our daughter and I returned to this special little place once again and enjoyed every minute of it. The view takes my breath away every time. I especially enjoy the Window beds to read a book and listen to the waves .The condo is so well maintained and comfortable with all Amenities needed.
Kathy the house keeper always has a smile and took care of all our needs. She cleans the place every day. Trevor the Gardner got us fresh coconuts from the trees and gave us a back ground of all the health benefits of coconut water.
The grounds are well kept and the private Lagoon are just a few steps from the condo.
Want to go hang out were the locals are walk across the street to the Jerk center. Good food and nice drinks. Very kicked back place. The little super market is very convenient.
There are lots of attractions close to Ocho Rios and just a few minute drive.
Went up to Irie River and really enjoyed the cool River water .
After all the outings we always were so glad to be back at Chrisanns. Loved laying in the Hammocks and just enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere.
Morning coffee on the Veranda watching the sunrise was a special time for us.
Soon be back
We had such a wonderful time last year, we immediately booked this condo again when we returned last year. This is a very quiet and relaxing place to stay. We love how it overlooks the beautiful ocean and it has all the
amenities you need as if you were home.
This oceanfront condo felt more like a piece of real Jamaica over a "resort" stay. The staff was great. They were VERY helpful on any question and had great suggestions for things to do. There was a small market across the street that had everything we needed as well as some nice restaurants and bars within walking distance. This location is on the beach near ochos rios and not in a separated resort area. It's a gated and secure condo and everyone we met in the neighborhood was extremely friendly.
We had a great week at Chrisanns, It was so easy to book every thing with Daniela including having Christy pick us up at the airport. The condo was excellent, steps from the ocean which we spent every morning. We had planned on visiting several places but once we got there - we enjoyed the place to much and just had a great relaxing week and took advantage of this great treasure that we happened to find. Special thanks to the great staff, Trevor, Cathy and Carmen. Looking forward to seeing you all next year.

Chrisanns! We miss you! What an amazing little getaway! My husband and I traveled to Ocho Rios this January after spotting this little treasure of a resort in an online search. We had no idea when we booked this vacation that it would be the best vacation of our lives. We have already decided that when we go back , we will be staying at the condo again…really no need to look any further! SO to the reason why it was so wonderful? The peace and quiet! And unlike those full package resorts , we felt like we were able to really be away from all the tourist chaos and noise. This property in particular has hammocks with a SPECTACULAR view. The first 3 days of the trip we did absolutely nothing but lay in those hammocks and go swimming in the ocean. Further, the people who work and live there are so sweet and very helpful to first timers on the island. Trevor would climb the coconut trees every morning and treat my hubby and I to fresh "jelly" every morning. You have to try it straight from the tree, nothing like those sugar coconuts that you can buy at the market. Also, the staff cleaned our place for us every morning…a real treat. If you want to venture off the resort (really hard to do since everything is right there) then there is SOOOO MUCH TO DO! We had a blast walking to Reggae Beach and eating at the many walkable eateries in the area. There is a 5 star Italian Restaurant that we loved but there is also a Jerk Shack which is also delicious. Daniella , if you read this please give our love to Chase, Trevor, Sandy, Ken and his wife, the amazing friendly couple upstairs (they brought us to Nine Mile! ) , and all the staff. We will be back , thank you so much. P.S. Punky Brewster was in the DVD collection….just so cool for this 80's child.
