About Elizabeth

My family has been traveling to Ocho Rios since the 90's. On our 2nd trip we had seen this complex being built and bought one of the 2 bedroom penthouses.

Elizabeth purchased this condo in 1990

Why Elizabeth chose Jamaica North Coast

Location, it's the best in town. Always upgrading and remodeling. Eco Friendly all led lighting, under-sink water filter to save on buying bottled water.

What makes this condo unique

Views, Rooftop patio with a relaxing out door shower. We are from New York and bring all the quality goods like linens, towels and furnishings that is hard to get in Jamaica.

Guestbook comments from the owner

February 2006 was my first trip to Ocho Rios, Jamaica, staying at Paradise Found Penthouse A28. I've been back 13 times to the same apartment and have made plans to visit again in 2015 or sooner.



The apartment is spacious, clean, close to supermarkets, shops, restaurants and all tourist attractions. No car is needed, everything is within walking distance, including a casino!!



Over the years the apartment has been updated with new furnishings as needed. It sleeps 5 people comfortably & the master bedroom is on the 2nd floor adjacent to the rooftop patio. It's light and airy with a constant breeze coming through the windows. Each room has a slim line air conditioner along with a ceiling fan. The beds are very comfortable and new bedding is attractive.



From the living room and bedrooms you have garden, sea & pool views! From the rooftop patio you have magnificent views of the mountains and also the sea & it's amazing to watch the Cruise Ships docking.



Sandcastles has a pool, and with just a short walk on the foot path you can play on the public beach that boast soft sand and clean water. You can book water sports right from the beach too!



My favorite & one of the best things about staying here is the rooftop patio with the OUTSIDE shower. You have not lived until you have showered with the moon & the stars above!



Have fun, ENJOY & get happy!

Great Vacation Place-Truly a Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We definitely enjoyed staying at Elizabeth's property. Prior to our visit, she was always ready to answer any questions and address any concerns promptly. We loved the location of the condo - right in the center of town with all its restaurants/bars/food markets/souvenir, jewelry, and clothing shops. Property is very well maintained and very clean on the outside: there was a pool that we never got to use, small children playground, beach few steps away from the property itself. Property is well secured (if this is one of the concern).

Condo itself was exactly as described - clean, spacious, tons of closet space, unique in architectural way (it's bi-level with spiral staircase-if you have large suitcases, unpack downstairs, much easier that way). We had 4 adults and 1 child staying with no problems. Elizabeth added an extra bed for a child and it worked out just perfect. The condo was well stocked with pots, pans, bowls, plates, etc. It had all the appliances we needed. I was a little apprehensive about lack of stove in the beginning, but got a hold of using hot plates and there was no problem. We definitely enjoyed the outdoor patio. It was great to have a glass of wine and dinner outside with a perfect, almost unobstructed, view of the ocean. We also loved the outdoor shower and used it quite a bit (condo has 1.5 bath). It eliminated morning/evening bathroom traffic. We also took advantage of a washing machine-traveling with a child, it always comes in handy (so grab some Tide Pods with you!).

We did bunch of outdoor activities: rented a snorkeling boat right on the beach, drove to Dolphin Cove (5min), Dunn's River Falls (10min). There are plenty activities that we didn't get a chance to do, but will once return. WE LOVED THE CONDO AND WILL BE BACK!

One con (has nothing to do with the condo itself). We are a family of swimmers and were very disappointing by Ocho Rios. Beach was very clean and nice, however, water was murky, shallow and rocky. We have been spoiled by the beaches and ocean in Montego Bay and Negril - can't compare to Ocho Rios.

Nevertheless, we enjoyed staying at the condo, getting to know Ocho and its surrounding area, sampling local cuisine, and making new friends.

Great Vacation Getaway Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I had the pleasure of staying at the Paradise Found Condo from 06/20/16 to 06/25/16 and it truly was a positive experience. The Condo is well furnished and has all the amenities and more that anyone can ask for. It is also centrally located with an amazing view of the beach from the balcony. By the way, the beach is literally in your backyard. All the staff were extremely helpful and very hospitable am I must say we found paradise in Ocho Rios during our stay.

Do It Yourself Paradise Found

  • 4 of 5

This condo is located at Sandcastles Resort, Main Street Ocho Rios. We booked for 6 nights privately through homeaway.com and we have no complaints about our place. The condo looked EXACTLY like the photos shown on the home away listing and it was well upkept, clean and perfect for what we wanted/were looking for. We stayed on the 3rd floor and had a rooftop patio and outdoor shower, which was awesome. Ochi is a cruise ship port so you will have many views of one or more cruise ships each day. But our view was awesome; there were hills behind us with big homes, and the beach and sea in front of us.

Sandcastles is secure; we felt plenty safe. The staff is friendly. We went to the beach every single day and “Jack” took care of us, setting up our chairs ($5 each for the day) and what-not. The grounds are very pretty; lots of palms, plants and flowers. The pool looked kind of lame to me, but there were plenty of kids and teens and grown ups that seemed to enjoy it; we just preferred the beach. We had breakfast one day at the restaurant upstairs and looked out over the property; it was decent. We never went into Sandbar restaurant, despite much cajoling from staff; it is an ALL WHITE room and there was nobody in there when we came through; it gave me the creeps.

I will say that loud music from the street, from downtown Ochi, and from people partying at the pool kept me up late into the night more than once. I liked that the location was beachfront and on main street. Restaurants, ATMs, groceries, souvenirs, are all nearby. I would say property is only handicap-accessible if you stay on the ground floor; otherwise there are stairs and no elevator.

We LOVED the fact that the beach was never too crowded, and that locals hung out there too. Since we stayed over Easter weekend, the kids were on break on Friday and we had a great time making friends with the friendly Jamaicans that came right up to us in the water and started asking our names and telling us all about their siblings and families:)

John Crow’s across the street is nice for drinks and food and sometimes has live music; not too crowded. Miss T’s is hidden off main street and is an authentic Jamaican cuisine experience worth having; Evita’s Italian up the hill was the best non-Jamaican food we had and an adorable place. I would most definitely skip Ocean’s 11 unless you just want drinks. Drinks are great; food is not.
