Most Affordable Private Villa with pool In Runaway Bay

definitely will return to this Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

If you would like to stay at place away from home that feels like home. This is the ideal place for you! Affordable, private and very clean. The Villa is in a quiet area, as well as a gated property with a respectable and friendly young man who keeps the villa grounds looking splendid - not to mention the private pool where you can go for a morning swim or anytime because it is yours to cool off whenever you like! There is a deck with a table and chairs to sit and enjoy a meal or just a quick lunch. The villa is very roomy with the comfort of air conditioning and also a kitchen to cook your meals or there is also a cook/cleaner you can hire at an affordable price. I have stayed at this villa both times i have traveled to Jamaica and i would most definately stay there many more times as i feel safe as well as comfortable. put up your feet and enjoy your vacation with no worries - no problem!

Perfect Location & Villa is a home away from home.

  • 3 of 5

This is the second stay at this villa and I would recommend it to anyone whether you are travelling with family or friends.

Beds are big and comfortable. Each room has A/C, private bathrooms and privacy locks.

Staff here are very welcoming and always on hand for any type of needs. Dorothy can cook like a chef and she is always willing to help whether it's with laundry, or a babysitter.

The pool is great and always clean to use when you feel like a refreshing swim.

Will definitely be visiting again.

Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Whistling Villa for ten days in July 2012. Everything was wonderful and we couldn't have asked for a better vacation, especially given the price point.

The pool was well maintained, as were the grounds, and we spent many lazy days out in the sun or shade by the pool. The bed was easily the most comfortable I have ever slept in in all my life. The villa was clean and tidy, which is important to us.

Whitsling Villa is a close drive (about 15 minutes) to Ocho Rios and is in the centre of Runaway Bay. You're never far away from everything you need.

The real jewel of this hidden treasure is the staff. Miss Joyce was so welcoming, kind, and accommodating. The prepared meals were second to none and it was so nice to have authentic Jamaican home cooking. Chris did an exceptional job keeping the grounds and pool maintained during our stay. We wanted privacy, which is why we chose a villa, but the second we needed something both of them seemed to know exactly when to appear. They truly made our stay a memorable one. Delores, our driver, was also great. All we had to do was call and she was there to help us with any errands we needed. Not only did she drive us, but often she'd accompany us to help us find the best deals, etc. We could not have asked for better people while on our vacation.

I would recommend Whistling Villa to all my friends and family. We've been raving about it since we returned home. We look forward to another vacation next year.

Will & Melissa
