  • Carousel Villa

    "We spent 10 days at the Carousel Villa. It was like staying at home with all the amenities available to ensure a very relaxing vacation. The villa staff do a great job cooking us great meals and keeping the villa nice and clean. I especially enjoyed the veranda overlooking the golf course and my nights spent looking up at the stars. The owners have taken special care to make this a comfortable retreat for all to enjoy. Eric the driver with the villa was absolutely wonderful, informative and made our trip so enjoyable with his knowledge of Jamaica. He took us on tours to Dunns River Falls, Bob Marley`s mauseleum, Reggae Sumfest (brilliant) and to visit family in Port Antonio where we got to raft on the Rio Grande. We have plans to return to Jamaica in the very near future. Thank you Jenn and Bill for the use of your villa - it gave us a true taste of the real Jamaica!"

  • Christmas Stay

    "We had a lovely time at Olcam Lodge. The staff was excellent, and the only areas of improvement that I would suggest would be some of the outdated aspects of the bathrooms, and the lack of screens to help prevent mosquitoes/flies, etc. We do hope to return in the future."

  • What a great trip and we loved the staff. The reviews about the view are understated!

    "We had a wonderful trip, never been at a staffed home or villa before. We were not sure what to expect, however loved it. Ms. Tiny and Betsy did a wonderful job and keeping the house looking great and the food was wonderful. Lawford took us to the beach many times and does a wonderful job with the BBQ grill. Waking up to that view every morning was a real treat and we were fortunate to have several ships pass by during the day and that was fun to see too. We weren't sure if we should hire the driver, however we did and do not regret it. We were not on the go very much, but it was nice to have the flexibility to go when we needed to. We have small children and did make a few trips to the store to keep them happy. We did plan to eat out several evening, however after the first nights meal, it was an easy decision to spend the evening there. This is a very comfortable home and very spacious. We were told that we were the last group that was going to be there before the renovations started, we have know idea why this place needs updating, but we can't wait to return and see the changes. Thank you Doug for all the help and being so easy to talk to (even our goofy questions) You have a great place and we hope to return soon."

  • A taste of Heaven

    "To say that this villa was the most BEAUTIFUL place on Earth would be an understatement!! From the moment we drove up, I literally fell in love with Fanta Sea!! Pictures don't do the villa justice, and the beauty and ambiance of the place in the evenings was the epitome of PEACE AND TRANQUILITY. By day, you can take a golf cart to the beach (make sure you know how to drive one), or pick you favorite spot by the pool or on the veranda and take in the ocean breeze. Or, you and your significant other can pick one of the gazebos in the lovely expansive gardens to spend a little quality time. The housekeeper is very sweet. There was a cook available, however we loved the housekeeper so much, we chose to pay her extra to stay for a full day and cook dinner. There is so much I can say about this villa. Due to my tendency to ramble, I will break it down in categories to make it simple. Accommodations: Clean, spacious, comfortable, and PRIVATE. We were there in early June. For me, the daytimes were bearable because most of the time, there was a great breeze filtering through the villa and if it got too hot, the lovely heart shaped pool was at your disposal. As heat does indeed rise to the top, and the building is made of cement, the upstairs bedroom does get rather warm even with a breeze. A/C is available in the evenings, but on a limited basis. Make sure you negotiate the availability at booking. Safety: One of the owners lives on site. A very gracious host, I always felt safe with him around. The villa sits back away from the road so you won't run into anyone who has no business on the property. Not to mention, there is a watch dog on the property who doesn't hesitate to make his presence known. He does not bite, however. Children: Spacious villa and grounds, combined with a pool and nearby beach make this villa perfect for families with children! Don't forget the armband inflatable floaties! Transportation: That was the one thing that became problematic for us. Having traveled from Kingston, I was appalled by the taxi rates in Runaway Bay. Food is NOT easily accessible, so bring plenty of groceries. The housekeeper will pick up groceries for you before coming, and Josh (one of the owners) is always available as a car hire. Ocho Rios is 30 minutes away. I would DEFINITELY hire Josh to take you into Ochi!! Lovely day. Also, have Josh take you to Scotchies for some jerk chicken, pork and sausage! The view is to die for!! Nightlife: Not much in the way of"

Runaway Bay Travel Tips

Run Away to Jamaica and Stay in Runaway Bay Beach Rentals

Jamaica’s Runaway Bay is truly a tropical haven; it is lush, green, and wonderful. With endless beaches, quiet coves, shady hammocks, and soothing waves, there will be no question in your mind why Runaway Bay beach rentals are a welcome contrast from everyday life. Staying in Runaway Bay villas will allow you to forget the worries of the real world while enjoying luxurious Jamaica travel. What is even better is that Runaway Bay is conveniently located a short drive from Montego Bay.

Runaway Bay Villas Let You Be the Boss

Staying in Runaway Bay beach rentals allows you the freedom to control your Jamaica travel. If you want to wake up and skim across the crystal blue waves of the Caribbean or play a round of golf or go scuba diving, the choice is yours. Even if you just want to lounge the days away enjoying the warm, tropical sun with a cold cocktail, you can. Whatever you want to do you can, because Runaway Bay villas are designed to be close enough to the action without imposing on the peace and quiet you crave.

Scuba Diving Is Essential at Runaway Bay Beach Rentals

Let the gentle fragrance of the tropics melt your troubles away when you stay in Runaway Bay beach rentals. The combination of white sands and sapphire waters will make you want to stay forever. One thing not to miss while in Jamaica is the scuba diving--the Canyon Wall in particular. The Canyon Wall is two vertical walls facing each other and what is in between is simply astounding–-a rich array of coral, sea turtles, and Bermuda chubs.
