Cal Spence or Samantha Spence purchased this Townhome in 2013
Why Cal Spence or Samantha Spence chose Little Bay
At a young age, Cal and Dahlia dreamed of owning a beachfront property for their family to enjoy in Negril, Jamaica. A country rooted deeply in history, culture and tradition. Jamaica is known for its laid-back atmosphere and its beautiful beaches. This property is in a gated community with 24 hour security. It has a private beach, infinity pool and resort style club house access. The colorful houses, natural beauty and friendly atmosphere is perfect for anyone looking for a vacation filled with serenity. Enhancements will be made to the community such as implementing Tennis Courts in the near future.
What makes this Townhome unique
Little Bay Country Club is a charming gated community that enjoys a private beach, clubhouse, infinity swimming pool, and 24-hour security. The beach leads onto the clear waters of Little Bloody Bay, where a protected fish sanctuary means that there are no motor boats or fishing allowed and one of the most incredible snorkeling environments on the island. This beautiful vacation property boasts beautiful scenery, privacy, serenity and friendly neighbors. The abode itself has a walkout to a quaint backyard with patio (currently in development) and is driving distance (15-20 minutes) to many amenities such as a gas station, restaurants and tourist attractions. The community is located in the resort capital of Negril bordering Hanover off the main road beside the RIU club hotel facility.

Great place to relax and close enough to party and enjoy Negril's seven Mike beach and music
Great little bay
Cozy home, had enough of everything you need and steps away from a beautiful pool/beach.
My husband said he has never been so relaxed! A piece of heaven! The beach was great , snorkeling was excellent . 10 dollar taxi ride to seven mile beach area for dinners, shopping an nightlife. The house is clean , modern and update.the bed was comfy.
Cosmo I believe was our favorite dinner spot,of course you need a jerk chicken to go home with, and my husband loved Best in West.
Spent 12 nights and didn't want to leave, I know I will be back, if they would have me.
Stopped at mo bay for food at mega mart,just bought breakfast and lunch items. Brought all kinds of snacks in suitcase. Dinner out each night, negril people are wonderful, love talking to the old timers for hours.
Thank you Lynn! We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and you are welcome back anytime. All the Best. -Cal
The Best of Both Worlds!
Our family stayed at Spence Villa for one week and really enjoyed our stay. We only wish we could have stayed for longer. We really loved the quiet and privacy of Little Bay Country Club. Since we visited during low tourist season, we had the pool and beach all to ourselves all week! It was really great having a really nice beach that is truly private, with very good snorkelling right from the shore, with a huge warm infinity pool, a short drive away from so many good restaurants and bars along Seven Mile Beach. We loved having the choice between the action of Long Bay and the cliffs, and the peace and quiet of the country club. In my experience, there really isn't anywhere else like that in Negril.
The villa itself was cozy and clean, and the kitchen was nice, new and well equipped. Both bedrooms have nice big beds, ac, and balconies. The big screen with cable in the living room was great for the evenings. Perfect for our family of four. The grounds of the country club are big and well maintained, with really good sunsets from one side of the property. Nice for an evening stroll.
We were picked up at Sangster by Joe Cool taxi service as recommended, they were very nice and efficient. Our driver, (Mervin) was great. He also took us to Mega Mart in Montego on the way and helped us shop. I highly recommend their service. Upon arrival we were greeted by Karen, who gave us the keys, showed us around and how a few things work. As mentioned in previous reviews, you should pay attention. The doors and windows work a little differently than most people would be used to, but easy once you get the hang of it. The starter package of breakfast food was a nice touch, thanks. We made our own breakfast and lunch, and took taxi rides (John) into town for dinner. We visited Hammond's Bakery for beef patties(very good), Best In The West for jerk chicken and pork, (which really is the best in my opinion) and had dinner at Ciao Italian restaurant. Ciao had excellent food, and a free shuttle to and from the cliffs which saves you a fair bit of money. We also visited The Boardwalk Village for some fun, food and drinks on Long Bay during the daytime. We spent an afternoon at Kool Runnings Waterpark which was a total blast, and spent an evening at Rick's Café for cliff jumping, live music, and sunset. Also great.
We definitely had a great time at Spence Villa, and would love to return soon. Thank you Cal, Dahlia, and Samantha for sharing your vacation home with us!
Thank you Jeremy for this heartfelt review! I couldn't agree with you more, this experience is the best of both worlds. Whether it is the action of the long bay and the cliffs or the peace and quiet of the country club. I agree that there isn't anywhere else like that in Negril. I am pleased we share that in common. We are also so glad that you and your family had a great vacation and enjoyed our cozy villa. It was our pleasure hosting your family. We look forward to having your family visit us again as you are all welcome anytime. Thank you again for your positive feedback.
All the Best. -Cal (& the Spence Family)
Very Nice Stay for a Family of 4
This was our 5th visit to Negril, and our stay at Spence Villa was satisfactory for our family. We rented a car in Mobay and drove to Negril (about 1.5 hours realistically). I feel you need a car at Little Bay Country Club as the location is a little far from downtown Negril and 7-mile beach. Plus, we like to drive around and explore the beautiful island and all it has to offer.
The villa is modern and well-equipped. The gated community is safe and nicely kept up. The beach and pool area is beautiful, with good snorkeling right off shore. The private beach can be very quiet, so when we wanted some action we would drive to 7-mile, no problem. All the staff we met were super friendly and helpful.
Mr. Spence and his staff were great at making sure we were happy with everything. The wifi worked OK, but there were times it was down, no problem. We didn't go to Jamaica to surf the internet! I wish the landline phone allowed outgoing local calls because it would have made things a little easier as we had difficulty with our cell service. The A/C in the upstairs bedrooms was great as it gets Hot up there. The kitchen was modern and had everything we needed. The starter groceries were a nice touch!
A word of advice: when Mr. Spence's caretaker shows you around the house, please pay attention! Especially on how to properly lock the doors, because it is a little tricky at first.
The biggest issue we had with the property is solely due to its location in the community. The house is literally about 20 feet from the A1 highway which runs runs along the back of the property. Honestly, the noise level is annoying. In the evening when you want to relax and have the windows open for the breeze (which is essential since there is no A/C on the first floor) the sound of traffic is obnoxious. We never got used to it. It was difficult to watch movies without turning the volume up to a deafening level. We were a little disappointed with the noise level.
All in all, we had a good stay at Spence Villa. It really worked for us as a family. I would absolutely return to Little Bay Country Club, but I would stay in a villa closer to the beach and away from the road next time.
Thank you for your feedback. We look forward to ongoing renovation projects that will improve the issues suggested and enhance the villa further. An air conditioning unit on the main floor is certainly at the top of the list and will be installed in the very near future. Unfortunately this unit did not come with one on the main floor. But yes, the rear of the home backs onto the main road. The installation of the A/C should block out some of the traffic sounds that you mention when the rear windows are closed. We're glad that you and and your family enjoyed your time in Jamaica.
Thank you for visiting my humble abode. -Cal
Better than a Resort
My family and I visited Jamaica for 10 days and stayed at Little Bay Country Club, Spence Villa (Unit 30). We registered online with Joe Cool (as suggested) who picked us up from the airport. 1st the driver brought us to "Mega Mart” in Montego Bay. Prices cheaper with North American imports. Round trip airport transfer $120 USD for group of 4. The villa is approx. 60 minutes from Montego Bay.
When we arrived, we checked in with security, the caretaker and the owner greeted us. The owner welcomed us and left shortly thereafter. The caretaker provided us with a tour, the keys, WiFi password, a binder with suggestions & phone numbers. She is also a RMT. She also prepared our first dinner and it was fantastic!
The house is very cozy, clean and well maintained. The kitchen is equipped with all essentials. The laundry machine was handy (we opted to hang beach towels outside to dry them faster). The bunk bed on the main floor is a plus. The fridge had milk, water, bread, eggs and butter to start us off. (Thank You). Having Wifi, cable and a landline are a huge bonus. The community grounds are breathtaking, safe and private. The patio is under construction & looks like a beautiful project in the making. The quiet serenity is just what we were looking for away from the busy party strip of Negril.
I rented a car for a few days and the rest of the time we depended on shuttle service that many restaurants offer. We paid $5 USD for the taxi ride downtown and picked it up right outside the security gate.
· Cosmos (approx. 7 minutes from house) *they also deliver.
· Time Square Duty Free Mall for shopping or the Craft Market
· Ciao Italian-Jamaican Restaurant (free shuttle service to and from villa)
· Push-Cart Restaurant (West End) try the jerk sampler (amazing and inexpensive)
· 7 mile beach was great but busy, we were content with our own private beach (villa)
We Ordered from Broadway Jerk Center
· Delivery ($3)
· Grilled Lobster
· Jerk platter with 3 sides (festival, veggies & rice)
We really enjoyed ourselves. I read the first review and can’t believe we stayed at the same place. I’ve been to Jamaica numerous times always staying at resorts on 7-mile beach or West End but staying at unit 30 was a positive memorable experience.The team here went above & beyond to ensure we had a good time. We really appreciate the recommendations offered. We will be back again! Thanks again, I recommend staying here to everyone!
Thank you Alisha for your detailed feedback and kind words. We are happy to know that you and your family enjoyed your time at Spence Villa. It seems you were also quite adventurous! Good for you for taking advantage of the free shuttle service to the various restaurants as well as the delivery option. You and your family are welcome back anytime time. All the Best. -Cal
