17 Best Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Kingston, Jamaica - Updated 2024

Contributing Writer
| 13 min read

Surrounded by the Blue Mountains and sparkling turquoise waters, Kingston is divided into two distinct parts: uptown and downtown. While the city’s historic architecture, government buildings, street markets, and museums line the streets of downtown, luxurious and high-end establishments can be found in the more affluent uptown. With its lush parks, rich cultural heritage, and vigorous nightlife, it’s no surprise that Kingston was named a Creative City of Music by UNESCO in 2015.

What’s trending in Kingston?

Kingston offers a storied range of hotspots, each able to attract the many tourists that come to this Caribbean destination. That said, you’ll also find plenty of interesting things to do while in the city:

  • Art attractions: Based in downtown Kingston, the National Gallery of Jamaica is a pioneering art museum. It's also the largest of its kind, having hosted various exhibits that feature prominent Jamaican artists front and center. Another must-visit attraction for art lovers is Fleet Street, best recognized for its colorful murals.
  • Historical places: Once dubbed as the "wickedest city in the west," Port Royal is home to several structures that were built during the early days of British occupation, much of which have sunk underwater. It also houses Giddy House, the late 1800s structure widely popular for its tilted placement thanks to the 1907 earthquake that shook Kingston.
  • Seaside spots: The quaint isle of Lime Cay is a solid favorite among locals and foreign tourists alike. Sundays see the place being more lively as crowds ride their boats to visit its captivating beaches. On most days, however, it's quite the opposite! Its secluded location and lack of establishments make it an ideal setting for those who want some good ol' quiet.
  • Music-based attractions: Kingston is the hometown of Jamaica's most revered artist Bob Marley, and you'll find plenty of markers, statues, and attractions that honor his legacy. Among those is Bob Marley Museum, located within his former home which he purchased in 1975.

Kingston’s stunning natural landscape and colorful personality bring in millions of visitors from around the world every year. Instead of the usually packed hotel, why not stay at a local home and live like a true resident? Read on for the best Airbnb vacation rentals in Kingston, Jamaica.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on July 21, 2024.

1. Well-equipped studio in the heart of New Kingston (from USD 69)

Nestled within New Kingston, a thriving business district, lies this studio suite that offers just about everything a guest will ever need. Basic amenities such as a queen bed, TV, and air conditioning are available, and you’ll have access to your own attached balcony. Several thoughtful additions can be also expected upon checking into the apartment. Among these are a small basket filled with snacks and refreshments and fresh towels for bath and beach purposes.

Accessibility is a huge plus thanks to the unit’s location. You’ll be within a 10-minute drive from popular attractions such as Devon House. Emancipation Park is also close by. As you cap off your day and are ready to charge your phone for the next, you can use the wireless charger attached to the bedside lamp.

Recommendations from the host, Sandy:

  • Where to eat: Devon House I Scream (5 Kingsway, inside Devon House); SoSo Seafood Bar and Grill (4 Chelsea Ave); PeppaThyme (152-158 Constant Spring Rd); Floyd's Pelican Bar (Salt Spring Junction)
  • Where to hike: The Blue Mountains feature several hikes across the ranges. The most notable of these is Blue Mountain Peak Hike, which offers plenty of challenges as you climb up the highest peak.
  • Where to swim: YS Falls (45RC+3PH, Middle Quarters); Dunn's River Falls and Park (Ocho Rios); Frenchman's Cove Beach, Reach Falls (2MJQ+J5Q, Manchioneal)
