First & Foremost I want to thank , Sheldon & B for their hospitality. It was more than I expected, from picking me up from the Airport, to upgrading my stay and providing me with a rental car, they supplyed me with everything I need. You can get everything you need at one place. What I love about "CHOOSE To Be Happy, is that they strive to make Happy Consumers HAPPIER, why do I say this? After returning the rental car , I forgot to full the tank back up & as a subsidiary of "Choose To Be Happy! They filled it up for me. It's little things like that that makes me always want to use them everytime i go to the island. PS the pictures do not have anything on the actual location ...SIMPLY AMAZING

The name "Happy @ 16" is perfect for this and the other properties under this banner. Located in New Kingston the apartment I stayed in was a well appointed suite complete with washer and dryer, a beautiful kitchen with all new appliances (there was even a little start up kit of snacks, coffee, teas etc), and a large bathroom. The owners spared no expense on the furniture and finishings so it truly felt like I was in a top tier hotel room. The apartment was in a gated community with 24 hour security as well as having the additional security of a key card and electronic gate seperating the courtyard from the actual apartments. Security was extremely friendly and pegging me as a visitor kept an extra eye out and helped me to find safe neighborhood restaurants to visit in the evening. I was central to almost everything in Kingston and even my friends who lived on the island were envious of my location. I normally prefer vacation rentals to hotels and Happy has become my new go to when visiting Jamaica. The price is perfect for long stays and Sheldon was super helpful allowing me to check in very early due to my morning flight and he was always a quick text and or phone call away. Recommend this property highly.

This condo is ideally located...practically 5 mins away from, bob marley museum and devon house. The condo is very comfortable, clean and very secure. It has all the amenities listed incl. laundry facilities and a pool.. There is security personnel at the gate 24hrs...Sheldon and his business partner Basil were very helpful and accommodating and also organized a rental for us to use during our stay...I would definitely recommend this condo if you want to stay in a very nice neighbourhood in the middle of the city!! It has everything you'll need and if not, I'm sure Sheldon will be able to accommodate!!

Clean and quiet and very close to everything. I felt very secure with the secured entrance.

For starters, my flight arrived after 6 p.m,, after check-in. and Mr. James accommodated my late arrival.The apartment was not far from the airport and is centrally located. He was waiting at the apartment when we arrived. He escorted us in and oriented us to the apartment and the property as well gave a short tutorial on how to work the aminities (which are also provided in the apartment written in detail incase you forget). The apartment was just as pictured in the photos! We were pleasantly surprised not to mention very pleased. We all know how deceiving pictuers can be. The decor was immaculate, the art work appeared to be orginal pieces. The appliances and counter tops were high end. All the things you need to perpare a meal were available: pots, pans utensils, dishes. There was a curtsey basket of snacks, teas and etc. provided. The linen closet was stocked with fresh linen, towels, wash cloths, beach towels etc. There was an iron as well as an ironing board. If you think you need it, it most likely was available. There was also a movie library as well as magizines to read. The bed was HEAVEN, very comfy! The bathroom was beautifully done and we loved having surround sound throughout the aprarment. There is a speaker in the ceiling in the bathroom that lets you hear what was playing on the T.V.. What a great feature! We truly felt at home. It's obvious we loved the apartimet and enjoyed our stay, however it was comforting to know and experience that If we had any quesitons or concerns Mr. James was alwasy easy to contact and he responsed very promptly. We chose to be happy and was not disappointed! We extend our deepest gratitude to Mr. James and his family! Thank you for an amazing vacation stay in Jamaica and we will always Choose To Be Happy!
