We are 3 couples who just had to have our own piece of Jamaica.
Kevin Katzer purchased this house in 1993
We fell in love with Jamaica since our first trip in 1986.
A serene, peacefull and relaxing atmosphere is hard to find these days- Sea Rose has it.
We stayed at Sea Rose Villa in January with a couple of our friends and it was absolutely fantastic. Adassa, who is the cook and her daughter Michelle were there every day to spoil us with amazing cooking. We didn't have to lift a finger as they did everything for us. The pool was perfect, it made us decide to never rent another property without one. It was so nice to come home in the afternoons and go for a swim or just take a whole day and lounge around. David, the caretaker was very helpful and friendly. The location was nice and quiet but within walking distance to shops and the house itself is well equipped and quite large. All in all, we had a great trip and would recommend Sea Rose highly.
We joined friends for almost a week at Sea Rose Villa. Adassa, Michele and Dave, the house staff, gave us a sense of joining a family too. They were gracious and helpful. Adassa is a wonderful cook. The Villa is well designed and decorated for relaxation. We felt at home.
Hugh is a thoughtful and very safe driver. He also has a wealth of knowledge regarding Jamaica. An added delight was his knowledge of the best jerk places. He'll pick you up, even late evening, if you have a last minute craving for jerk. There are two basic beach restaurants near Sea Rose, Flavours and Sharkies. Another jerk place ,The Ultimate Jerk restaurant, even has rabbit jerk. The nearest Scotchies is in Ocho Rios. We stopped at the Montego Bay Scotchies on our way to the airport to eat lunch and buy food for the plane. Progressive Foods is a large supermarket one passes on the road from the airport to the villa. They have a pharmacy. We enjoyed their produce. It's a great place to stock up on family snacks, chocolate, children's cereals, cheeses and cold cuts. They have a great variety of juices, beer and wine. The market in Runaway bay is small. We bought rum at the airport from a very small selection, which was a mistake. We found the same prices and a greater selection (twenty + ) of rum at Progessive. They also offered us the best exchange rates when we paid in dollars.

We sent an email in advance of our arrival via Hugh asking Adassa to buy some greek yogurt for our breakfast. We've never had yogurt so delicious. We also asked her to buy lots of baby papayas, baby bananas (very sweet) pineapple and calalou (Jamaican spinach). Her ackee and cod (the cod is more texture than flavor) is delicious, we wanted ackee and calalou every day! Ruby goat farm will deliver goat yogurt, feta and chèvre, to Runaway bay. Just send an email to Ruth, whose address is on the Ruby goat farm's website. Maybe she can deliver a coconut goat cheese cake too!!!!
STUSH in the BUSH is a farm to table experience not far from Runaway bay and is a great outing.
We brought Adassa some decaf herbal teas from the U.S. We're glad we did, since when you leave you'll wish you could do some thing special for her.
The Sea Rose villa owners were quick to respond to our questions and gave us great advice. They've a nice oasis in the Sea Rose Villa.
Beautiful property, all bedrooms good size. Anessa great cook. Convenient location. No complaints at all.
Traveled to Jamaica lots of times but after my first stay in sea rose villa in March I had to return in July. The best stay I ever had, my new home away from home. Dave was the best and the owner is so cool and accommodating. This is s real dream in Jamaica.😍😍
Our group of 4 had a very nice stay at this snug villa. Well maintained, simply furnished and meticulously clean. Plenty of space inside plus great front porch and upper balcony for enjoying the breezes. It's a short drive from pretty much all the north coast sights. You may want a rental car for maximum flexibility although they're happy to arrange for a courteous driver. This is not the place for you if you crave bustling shopping areas or partying clubs. What you get is a taste of real Jamaican coastal life, slow paced and sun drenched. Best part is perhaps the chance to know the lovely staff, who somehow make you feel as if you've come home. Be sure to ask Adessa to cook some ackee with salt fish!
The owners of Sea Rose Villa are modest about their beautiful home, and the photos just don't do it justice! If you're looking for a more authentic Jamaican vacation, this is the way to do it! We stayed at a resort last time, and though it was terrific too, this is a much more relaxing vacation. The staff accommodated our schedule instead of us being subject to the resort requirements to control a "herd". The Villa is set in a peaceful neighborhood in the middle of a beautiful and peaceful garden. Flowers, fruit trees and grass along with the sound of the ocean from just across the street makes Sea Rose a lovely place to return home to after a busy day of doing "whatever the heck we want!" Runaway Bay is easy access to Ocho Rios attractions, but you can choose to stay away on cruise ship days. So far (as I write, we're still in paradise), we've visited Mystic Mountain (which is beautifully done - and my daughter says it was "the best day of my life"), but is definately pricey!! We also did ATV tours with Wilderness Tours combined with Dunn's River Falls. I highly recommend them! About half the price of anyone else, extreme personal attention, and they only ATV tour around that allowed our 7 year old to ride. We were also treated to a driving tour by "Teacher", the Sea Rose Driver, to and around Ocho Rios. Adessa cooks AMAZING food in somehow just exactly the right portions. We feel satisfied without being bloated and miserable while trying to enjoy the island.
The house feels just enormous with four private decks. We've opted to eat breakfast outside every morning, which is total bliss. The evening is definately mosquito time, though! Better to dine in the large ding room. We've enjoyed having our iPods/iPhones hooked up to the music system in the main room, and just lounging on our gorgeous front porch. More than anything, interacting with the locals and making fast friends around the neighborhood has been a total treat. Dining requests and times have been handled with "no problem".
Also, the master bedroom with a CalKing bed is HUGE! With two outdoor decks and the breeze blowing through all of the screened windows, it's just a treat! The air conditioning units in the bedrooms really pump out the cool air and make a perfect amount of noise for great sleep.
If you're looking for either a quiet romantic vacation or a laid back family vacation, the Sea Rose Villa is an incredibly economic AND beautiful way to go about it!
The Sea Rose is a quiet, tranquil guest house. Our staff is there to prepare your meals and ensure your stay is comfortable and relaxing. Hang out by the pool, or make it a beach day.
