Booking direct with John was easy. On arrival we were upgraded to the three-bedroom loft apartment (for two of us), which was very spacious with a large roof terrace with great views of the Morass.
John proved to be a very good host, and the three lovely dogs were very friendly. Anyone who cannot get on with these dogs has their own problems. We spent much of our time relaxing on the "porch" at the top of the outside steps, often with one or more of the dogs for company. There was a lot of birdlife to be seen, and even some bats flying past in the evening. We were so relaxed that we only went out for food supplies. And yes, John did bake us some bread which was really very good.
The location is excellent, with food shops and restaurants within walking distance. Mikey's at the bottom of the path does very good fish and lobster meals.
The negative reviews miss the point of the Chippewa Village. If you want everything working perfectly and to be served hand and foot, go to one of the boring, sterile AI's where you wouldn't even know you're in Jamaica. We know - we've tried it!
All in all, a great hideaway, but with the beach, nightlife and facilities close by. We would definitely stay again. Note that because of all the luxuriant foliage around, it would be wise to bring insect repellant.
