Fanta Sea Villa is located in a lovely residential area in Runaway Bay between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. Our villa is on an acre of tropical land with fruit trees and lots of beautiful flowers. We overlook the golf course and are only minutes from one of the prettiest beaches in Jamaica. The villa is very open to the outdoors and has a beautiful heart shaped pool. It is great for honeymooners, couples & families.
We have two gazebos, a small pond and golf carts for beach use.
ATTENTION SINGLES OR COUPLES: We have 2 lovely private suites that can be rented for $100 per night for 1 or 2 persons. They each have their own bath, kitchenette and balcony. The cook/maid & airport transfers are not included.
Pat is originally from Colorado in the USA and Josh is from Jamaica.
Pat Reed purchased this villa in 1997
What more could we want...perfect location, perfect weather, great golf. The Caribbean Sea is unbelievable; warm water with visability beyond belief. White sand beach with all water sports available. What a great way to spend your winters! You'll love the Jamaican people!!
Such a nice way to meet the Jamaican people away from the all-inclusives. Very private!!
Hi Pat, thank you very much for sharing your home, we had an awesome time! The food and service was excellent..beats any resort we have ever stayed in. We understand that there will always be a few things that don't go your way when traveling and our biggest complaint is that we couldn't stay longer because the week went by way too quick...and yes we were discussing the possibility of returning next year. Thanks again, we absolutely loved our family vacation! Everything was like you said it would be or even better.
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
I have been there many times and the last one was in May 2012. It is always a pleasure to go back and to feel like being at home with friends.
Pat and Josh are very friendly and respectfull with their customers. I highly recommend this place for a family stay and/or with friends and enjoy Jamaica, the people, the sea and the golf.
This would have been my 3rd visit to Fanta Sea Villa. As always the grounds were just beautiful. We were picked up at the airport by Josh and I could hardly wait to get to the Villa.
Pat went out of her way as she always does and it is always a pleasure getting back to Jamaica to see them. I cant say enough good things about the Villa.
I have been going to Jamaica for the past 7 years or so and this always feels like home to me.
Everyone says hi.
I stayed at the Villa with several girlfriends - we all enjoyed our visit - the Villa is beautiful and well maintained, the location handy to the golf course and beaches. Our meals were delicious, we had great transportation to various venues, and the owners were friendly and informative about the area.
I had the privilege of staying at Fanta Sea for 8 days beginning 2/20/12. I say privilege because this villa vacation was so unique. The property itself is a truly lush and tropical paradise, the villa is beautifully appointed and decorated, and wonderfully secluded even though on a gorgeous golf course. The photos here do not do it justice! As if that's not enough, the owner was available to fill our every need and was very gracious and attentive. She had arranged for superb cooks to prepare and serve us scrumptuous meals, and had lined up a variety of awesome adventures so we could really see and experience the beautiful island of Jamaica. Because she has lived there almost full-time for many years, she knows all the ins and outs, is very friendly with the locals and served to be a fabulous guide and escort. What precious memories I have thanks to the owner Pat Reed and all her hard work!
We have been staying at Fanta Sea Villa since 2005 (about 5 times in 7 years). I can say without hesitation that this villa and its staff is one of the best on the entire island of Jamaica! Indeed, the last time we went down, we rented another villa because we wanted to stay closer to Ocho Rios. But, when we arrived that evening, we were shocked to see that it was being used for wedding. We finally spoke to the owner and found out that the place had been double booked and the property misrepresented as a single family villa. Long story short, we called Pat at Fanta Sea Villa. Luckily, she did not have anyone staying at the villa for the remainder of that week so she agreed to take us in at a great price. We ended up having the best vacation! Pat's home is beautiful and very comfortable. All of the rooms are spacious and clean and the grounds are immaculate. The roof top deck has gorgeous views and the heart shaped pool is perfect for the kids. We love riding the golf carts down to the neighborhood's private beach, which is always a great place to spend the day. Like other guests, we often buy day passes at the local resorts to take advantage of their facilities and to go diving. Of all the places we've stayed in Jamaica, we always come back to Fanta Sea Villa. Pat, Josh and Sharon are like family to us and we always look forward to seeing them. We often ask Pat and Josh to join us for meals and activities. If you prefer solitude, you won't even notice they are there unless you need something. If you want to spend time with friendly people who can show you the real Jamaica or make suggestions about great things to do, just ask them. Enjoy!
Cardiff Hall, Runaway Bay is a beautiful residential area. We are only minutes from one of the most beautiful beaches in Jamaica. We are about 15 minutes from some of the most popular tourist attractions such as Dolphin Cove, Dunns River Falls, Rafting on the Martha Brae River and much more.
