About Rudy

This villa was built by myself and reflects what I always wanted when I rented. I wanted the natural feel of the island so I used local woods whenever possible, I did not use glass and aluminum windows in the house but instead wood louvere windows with wood frame screens, earthen tile by the pool, natural wood railings and ceilings throughout for that warm feeling. I insisted that everything be simple but practical and appealing to the eye. Tile in every room, ceiling fans throughout the house,a view of the ocean from every part of the villa and a warm friendly feeling throughout. From the minute you enter the property, flowers and lush tropical plants wave and great you and the you meet Marcia, the manager who will tend to your every wish and Jenny your housekeeper and probably one of the best cooks on the island. Carl, her son who will tend to your every request and Waine who is available to take you anywhere you want to go. This villa was designed to fill all of what I wanted and expected when I was on vacation. I hope that this also is what you expect when you are on yours.

Rudy purchased this villa in 2000

Why Rudy chose Whitehouse

I have traveled the Caribbean for over 40 years and found Jamaica by accident and fell in love with the island, and most of all the people. This villa is in an area where the Jamaicans are the way Jamaicans were 40+ years ago, peaceful, fun loving, caring people who want you to see what fun and a carefree vacation is really like. Enjoy good food, drink and dance with the locals.

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS

  • 4 of 5

Our group included my Mother (83), myself and husband, our three daughters (35, 33, 30) and our two grandchildren (3 & 1). We were so excited when we saw the villa with it's wide open common area, fantastic wrap around terrace with spectacular views both sunny and sunset, the perfect set up so that everyone had their private space and the great little pool. The house had everything we could have wanted and the staff, Sharon, Jermain and Elvis, the chef couldn't have been friendlier or more accommodating. Jermain became part of the family, watching cartoons with the kids, learning new games with us or just sharing an early morning coffee. Sharon kept the place spotless and was so sweet with all of us, especially our grandson, Ben. Elvis was a miracle worker. He seemed to be able to use anything he could find in the cupboard or fridge to create delicious and beautifully presented meals. Sharon brought us freshly caught fish and lobster , bought early in the morning from the returning fishermen.

Some things you should know when renting this villa:

1. The beach that we went to every day was called Sand-Sand beach and it was not one of the beaches listed on the information provided by the villa. You could walk there in about 25 minutes but we took a taxi there and back. We definately overpaid for the taxi ($50.00 there and back but it was a 7 minutes cab ride at most). Go there but ask Sharon to get a taxi for you. The beach is part of the Sandals Whitehouse beach and it is deserted and gorgeous.

2. Walking to town was possible if you are quite fit. There is nothing much in town except some bars and a convenience store. The walk back up the hill is quite strenuous.

3. Everything you could possibly need was supplied with the villa but we did find that the coffee maker took 20 minutes to brew a pot of coffee and the four slice toaster was broken. There was not one sharp knife or paring knife in the drawer. When we arrived the 2nd fridge wasn't working but once we told Marcia, the property manager it was fixed later that day.

4. The ride from Montego Bay airport is very rough and takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Micheal, our driver was really great and even bought us some jerk chicken from a road stand that he said was the best in the area. My daughters had both brought car seats from home but the van had no seat belts so the car seats were useless and we felt a little nervous of the bad roads and crazy drivers with no one strapped in.

A STAY IN JAMAICA LIKE NO OTHER

  • 5 of 5

27 family members and me visited Jamaica in January 2015. We rented 3 homes in the same subdivsion but everyone, from sun up to sun down, gravitated to Fanatasea. That is because the amenities at Fantasea are incredible. Add to that the sea views from the open-air living quarters, from the balcony and from every room in the house. The property manager Marcia and housekeeper Sharon made sure that all of our needs were met. We requested an independent chef (which is available for hire) and he made us all 2 meals per day to die for. The chef and Sharon assisted us with the food shopping and made sure that the freshest foods, fish and fruits were always available to us. Sharon maintained the house spotlessly, making certain that bed linens and towels were refreshed daily. The grounds at Fantasea are lush with many tropical flowers and palm trees. The house is on a hill which makese for great daily exercises: walking, jogging or running after nonstop rum punch drinks and two decadent meals per day. The owner, Rudy, is a great and fair business man. Rudy we loved your home, loved its architectural design and your decorating style. Marcia, Sharon and Chef Elvis, thanks for extending yourself to us and making our trip forever memorable. WE WILL BE Back!! Only not nearly so many of us at one time!!!

Fabulous Vacation - Exactly As Advertised - Better than Expected

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time vacationing in a rental home with staff and we wouldn't hesitate to do it again.We were 4 families totalling 8 adults and 6 children and the villa was large enough for each family to have their own private bedroom and ensuite.It was so lovely to be able to put the younger children to bed and then enjoy relaxing by the pool and have some adult time knowing they were only down the hall, a luxury we would not have had at an all inclusive.The staff pulled 2 long tables out on the deck so that we could all sit together for our meals and even managed to come up with a high chair for the baby.The villa was beautiful and relaxing with breathtaking views and sunsets.There was more than 1 disagreement over who got to lay in the hammock! Jenny, Carl & Peter were fantastic.Carl was always there to help with anything we needed and Peter's cooking was second to none-he's missed his calling with landscaping.We asked him to cook local cuisine and we thoroughly enjoyed brown stew chicken and pork, shrimp, spiny lobster, beans & peas and a personal favourite calaloo.He also has a real talent for decadent blender drinks.We had expressed a desire to see the country and get to know the people so Jenny took us to the fish market and Peter took us up into the hills to the local open air market when residence do their weekly shopping.Jenny arranged for her daughter to come braid our girls hair so we got to know her a bit.Marcia arranged a car & driver for the week that would transport all 14 of us. This was wonderful as we would have needed 3 taxi's to go anywhere.Mikey (our driver) was waiting when we arrived and made us feel safe and helped us to navigate the tourist traps.He also waited at the airport on our departure day until we were all checked in and safely on our way.He was literally at our beck and call all week-even when we just needed a red stripe run to town. As other guests have noted, it is quite a ways up on a hill (hence the spectacular view) and just not worth the walk for us.We spent a day at 7 mile beach in Negril and another in Montego bay and called that our beach days.The Olympics were on that week so we will likely be known as the Canadians who came with laptop and projector and watched the hockey games on the wall of the villa while sitting in the pool.I think we may have converted Carl to a hockey fan.Thank you to our hosts for being so welcoming and accommodating and allowing us to be a part of their family for the week!

Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was great! Nice, clean and maintained with a great house staff. The listing's photos accurately portray the property. Amazing views everywhere you look! Beaches are within walking distance. The owner was very helpful with questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend this place to friends & family. There are also many things to do nearby, including boating, swimming, snorkelling, jet skis, restaurants or just hanging out on the balcony.

A VACATION TO ALWAYS REMEMBER

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Rudy, Marsha, Carl, Jenny, Sharon and Mr. Bailey (our driver)! You made this vacation a vacation to ALWAYS remember. Arrangements were very accommodating. The Villa was very clean and comfortable. We spent time in Whitehouse as well as 8 other parishes. Negril is about 39 miles from the villa and beach about 5 mins. The view from the master bedroom is breathtaking! Every night a different sunset. We had fruit right off the trees on the property. Fresh fish from a nearby fisher village! Fantastic! I really can't wait for our next vacation. I would recommend young & old to experience Jamaica at it's best at FantaSea Villa. Rudy, we really appreciate all of your care during our stay, we were spoiled. Henry, Crystal, Imani & Amare Clarke

Relaxation at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent the most wonderful time at FantaSea Villa! The home is most comfortable and the staff (Jen and Carl) were pleasant and very accomodating.

The view from this villa is stunning! You can see the beautiful south sea coast as you witness incredible sunsets in the evening.

As the staff provides for your every need, the only thing you have to think of is what you want to eat next and what wonderful adventure you will experience that day.

The villa is perfect for familes with or without children. We are already planning to return to FantaSea as soon as we can!
