My family and friends stayed at Columbus Heights for 8 days in July 2007 and we regret every single moment of the visit. The condos are fifty -- the appliances rusty and dingy, toilets broken, and the rooms were filled with lizards and bugs. We were told that all the rooms have a/c and to our surprise --only 1 a/c in the bedroom and it did not work properly. The roof leaked in the master bedroom -- of course it rained 3 times -- so they place a big blue plastic covering over our condo --very ugly !!
To top it all off -- the maid was rude and lazy --she did not clean the rooms properly or provide clean sheets or towels. She didn't even know how to cook. --Please do not waste your money or valuable vacation time --go somewhere else !!!

Just recently returned from a 3 week long holiday in JA. One of those weeks was spent in Ochie. We stayed at Columbus Heights off of Main St. They're basically condo/apartments you can rent nightly/weekly, even monthly if you prefer. We rented a studio apartment. The property is on the side of the mountain so the hill up to our place was extremely steep. We found ourselves, most of the time , at the bottom hitching our way up, which most people were kind enough to take us up for free, others we paid 50-100J's just because we were so grateful we didn't have to walk up it! Once up the hill the view is beautiful, looking down on the bay where the cruise ships pull in. The studio consisted of a king size bed, dresser, large closet area, 2 person dining room table, sofa, 1 chair, bathroom,with tub, and kitchen with full size fridge, sink, 4 top range, no oven, toaster and all utensils. There was also a safe in the closet area. We also had a patio complete with table and four cahirs. Laundry was available, but was broken at the time.However i reccomend the laundry facilities behind The Travelers Rest at the bottom of the hill on Main St. to wash/dry clothes.

What a great place, I stayed here for my wedding. We had a two bedroom in phase 1. The verandah was huge, the apartment was nicely decorated and we had a welcome kit in the fridge, which consisted of egss, sugar, orange juice, butter and some other staples. We had a housekeeper/cook from 9 to 5 and the bedrooms had A/C. I would go back in a second. Skycastles shares the same property and my sister and some friends had a three bedroom penthouse up there. They liked their apartment but they didn't have a cook. You are on a steep hill and you are a five minute walk from town.
The apartment had one king bed and the other bedroom had two twin beds which were pushed together. The master bathromm consisted of two rooms which had a full bath/shower and toliet and the other room had a sink and a mirror that covered the entire wall. The other bedroom also had a full bath. The property is gated and when you go the supermarkets stick to the local brands as I paid almost $8.00 US for a package of butterball turkey breast

My family and I had a wonderful time in Jamaica. The newly refurbished apartment we stayed at was wonderful. It is well stocked, spacious, clean and an extremely inviting place to go back to. The housekeeper was a complete dream and her meals were amazing and nothing was too much for her!

We would most definitely stay there again. And would highly recommend it.
