About the area

In Ocho Rios, you can shop for souvenirs, duty free jewelry and other goodies at the Island Village plaza. Relax at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville Restaurant and Lounge, right on the beach at Island Village. You can visit museums such as the Reggae Museum in Island Village, WataLand, a new water park nearby, and the world-famous Dunns River Falls and Park. Ocho Rios has many restaurants: Italian, Chinese, international, Indian, and Jamaican. Every June, the town hosts a local jazz festival that brings together jazz musicians from across the island. You'll find other attractions in Ocho Rios like Dolphin Cove, where you can swim with these friendly creatures, and Mystic Mountain for an awesome eco-tourism experience, complete with canopy bridges and bungee rides above a tropical rain forest. Tour a working citrus plantation at the Prospect Plantation Tour, or go kayaking down the White River, or go mountain biking on trails nearby. Just 45 minutes from Chrisanns is the birthplace of Bob Marley: Nine Miles, where you can visit his mausoleum and museum. St. Ann's Bay is just beside New Seville, the site where Christopher Columbus first landed in Jamaica. Here you can visit a historical museum and ruins of early Spanish settlements dating back to the 15th century. Chrisanns Beach Resort is just an hour's drive away from Firefly, the home of Sir Noel Coward. Firefly is now a museum, and another National Heritage site. Forty five minutes away is Golden Eye, the former home of Ian Fleming, where he wrote his James Bond novels. If you feel adventurous, you can rent a car right across the street and drive to Portland and visit Navy Island, where Errol Flynn once lived. There' are tour brochures and car rental information in the reception area.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Wonderful!! 5/5 STARS
We have a 10 year old son with high-functioning autism/Aspergers. It was therefore important to us to find a peaceful place to use as a home base... somewhere to relax, cook our own food, watch familiar TV programs and return to familiar routines in the evening after our daily adventures.

This apartment was perfect for our needs. It had everything we needed including nice touches like masks, snorkels, and thick towels. We were perfectly comfortable. We slept well. The bed in the loft is particularly comfortable.

The apartment is located with a small complex called Chrisann's, which has about 30 units. It also has a lovely little beach sheltered by a breakwater and a small, well-maintained pool. Our son loved climbing the rocks to look for hermit crabs, snails, and colourful rocks. We loved being able to take a dip in the pool, the ocean, or both whenever we felt hot.

Chrisann's has a small staff that are responsible for cleaning the units, keeping the grounds neat, and providing gate security. All of them were patient and kind with my son. We felt safe and happy there.

Marian provided great information to make our Jamaican experience as smooth as possible. She was also very responsive to our e-mails.

We will miss Chrisann's, and apartment 10, very much.

Wonderful amenities and staff! 5/5 STARS
I booked Apt. 10 at Chrisann's as a surprise for my husband's birthday and was thrilled with the accommodations and staff. The apartment was fully stocked with games, books, ironing board, blow dryer, beach towels and even snorkeling gear! The kitchen had everything you need to prepare great meals and we were even welcomed with a gift bag that contained some specialty items (including a bar of soap which I had forgotten at home!) Cathy did a marvelous job of tending to our needs and immaculately cleaned the apartment every day and we felt very pampered. The apt. owner's recommendation of Glenn's Restaurant across the street was fantastic, great authentic food and service, along with the Jerk Center within walking distance. We rented a car but staff will arrange for anything you want, fresh fish, lobster, taxi's, specific items from the store, and they even set up a couple of tables for our large Chrisann's group to have dinner by the pool one night. Our TV in Apt. 10 even had the NFL playoff games on while our friends in other apartments didn't have access so we really appreciated that taste of home too. We plan on returning to Chrisann's on a more frequent basis and will definitely request Apt.10!

Lovely relaxing vacation 5/5 STARS
We really enjoyed staying at Marian's place. It is clean and comfortable, and the staff, and Marian's recommendations for other people--especially Kristy's taxi service--were great. Cathy made us a great meal of curried chicken and rice and beans. We would have had her cooked more. We liked the location very much--we thought of renting a car but decided we didn't need one. Glenn's across the street was a good place for any meal. Not much of a beach at this place but you can easily walk to Bamboo (previously Reggae Beach) Beach. Take a route taxi to Moxon's just to the east, which has stunning views and good restaurant and snorkeling. Walk to the spa at Couples Tower Island resort nearby for a very luxurious massage (we got a day pass for there too which is pricey at $100 per person, but lots of free food, drinks and activities for the price). Best of all Toscanini is right down the road. We explored outside of the immediate area a little bit, but mostly stayed in the neighborhood nearby. We were happy with our choice to stay in this modest but very comfortable accommodation, and spend money going out.
