Looking for out of the way condo

I'm looking for a quiet out of the way condo in areas surrounding Montego bay. I'm not into all inclusives, night life or the bar scene. Looking for serene settings on the water if possible. Can anyone suggest a place or an area that fits that description?

Jamaica unlike Mexico has very few condos but is known more for it's private villas. Does that interest you? If so what is your budget and criteria?

Maybe you can try apartments/condos on the water in Freeport, Montego Bay or villas further up in the Mobay hills. There are several condos on the hip strip and just on the hill above the strip and the town, however, anything near the main roads, town and hip strip can be unbearably noisy most times. Most structures are NOT noise proofed so you hear and feel the noise. I guess if you're looking for convenience without a car those are best. Noisewise, it can be traumatic if you actually like sleeping sometimes and quiet. (LOL).

There are condos in Ironshore (water view) near the shopping, though I'm not a fan of Ironshore. I wouldn't recommend going further up into the hills in Ironshore if you don't have a vehicle or transportation that's 100% dependable. Anchovy and Hanover are pretty quiet. Sea Castle is quiet. It has a semi-private beach, but note that the condition of all rental units are subject to the owner's care and taste.

Here is a site for rentals:

There is a place on top of the hill where you can see the whole view of Freeport and the cruise ships. This rest house located at Richmond Hill and it cost only US$25.00 per day/nite. For cab service you can contact Mr Carlton ( Black) at 1876 447-9762 or u can contact me for more information. My e-mail address is sherrygreubel@yahoo.com.
