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 Jamaica

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.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Fantasea Villa for our honeymoon and it was the greatest week of our lives! The moment Elroy picked us up we felt at home. He was the nicest person. He taught us so much about Jamaica and we can honestly say he become a friend at the end of our honeymoon and we miss him dearly. Once we got to the villa, my husband and I were in such awe over the whole house and views. It's open and spacious with a huge balcony with the most gorgeous view I've ever seen. We arrived just as the sun was setting. I've never seen anything like it. It was stunning. There's a beautiful pool that literally sits on the edge of the balcony so it feels like your floating in the air. Next to it is a huge hammock where we spent most nights just watching the sunset. The master bedroom is spacious with a small balcony with huge doors that open up. Most night we would keep the doors open to let the breeze in and most especially to watch the sunrise. Which is the most breathtaking thing to see. Imagine waking up to that every morning?! It was amazing. Our house manager, Jermaine was an absolute doll. He was always there when we needed him. My husband and him would talk everyday and my husband taught him how to play chess. Jermaine even went out to get us fresh fruit, it was delicious. So sweet! Our honeymoon was an adventurous one. We did something different everyday and Elroy was there ready to take us and even had great recommendations! We had a blast! We went to Pelican bar, YS falls and so much more! And then we would come back to the villa take a dip in the pool, get ready for dinner and go to Luna Sea right down the road for dinner (another great spot). The villa we stayed at is off the beaten path and it was perfect. We went to Sandals for one night and can honestly say it was nothing compared to staying at the villa! The villa is private with a beautiful pool, absolutely gorgeous views, the most beautiful beaches close by and we were surrounded by wonderful ppl such as Elroy and Jermaine and the best part was going on all those amazing Jamaican adventures and really seeing the island! Rudy, the owner is one of the nicest people and really makes you feel at home. He knows the best beaches to go, what to eat and what to do for fun! He put together an amazing place! Rudy and the staff, we can't thank you enough for the honeymoon of our dreams. If anyone is thinking of Jamaica for honeymoon or for a fun vacation, fantasea villa is your place!

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a stunning view, immaculate property, this is where you should stay! We had eight adults and each of us were very comfortable. The staff was very accommodating and was there when we wanted them and gone when we wanted privacy. The location is very good because you can have the fun party life very near or the quiet peaceful life if needed. There is A/C in each room but to be quite honest we left every window and door open each night to enjoy the stunning views from every room and the fresh air we don't enjoy at home due to heat and humidity. To have the best experience you expect, just let the staff know of your needs from the beginning and you will be set. The owner is very responsive and has a very good relationship within the community and with his staff. Leaving was the most difficult part of our trip and I cannot wait to return.

VERY VERY NICE HOME AND STAFF

  • 5 of 5

Only the nicest things to say about Fantasea Villa, The home is beautiful, I love the way it is laid out, large rooms big bathrooms, and very very clean. the deck is amazing !!! the view from any spot on the deck, hammock is the best chill spot, the pool is on the small side but still nice enough to cool off and have fun, safe if you have smaller kids with you, STAFF they are awesome, Christina cooked some awesome food for people who really dont like to venture out of their comfort zone, every thing was delish.Christina you need to charge more! Lisa, she is so sweet, always had a smile and kept the place spotless, along with doing my laundry for me, and turned us on to some new music, thank you for that:)) now on to Jermaine, he is the nicest, sweetest, funniest person ever, he had us laughing and giggling the entire time, he went to the store with us and made sure the pool was the rite temp (I like it warmer then most ) this was the joke between us bc the water was very nice I am just a sissy. Rudy the owner is so very nice, he made sure we had every thing we needed and answered every question we asked,, any way if you are thinking of booking with fantasea do it, the place is very very nice, staff awesome and the view is to die for.

Simply stated FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5

We were a Missions Team traveling throughout tne area. What a beautiful home to come back to in the evening both inside and out! And the view! The home was immaculately clean upon arrival and everyday during our stay. The kitchen is fully stocked for our everyday cooking needs. We had 25 for dinner one day and did not run out of plates or silverware!!!! Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. And the staff...can't wait to go back next year to spend the week with them again. They have become part of our Jamaican family! You are secluded enough for relaxation but not excluded so far from White House which makes this home perfect! The owner, Rudy Miller, is wonderful to work with. Looking forward to 2017 at Fanta Sea Villa!

Gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

We arrived dec 19 2015 at fantasea villa, I had some reservations about staying in the area thinking it was too far away from everything, turns out there was plenty to do in the area! We were there for six nights and would love to stay longer! there is plenty to do in the area as far as outdoor activties. Not touristy area so you don't get hassled. An older grocery store is close by for basics. The street food was great (jerk chicken) if your comfortable with speaking with locals. They speak heavy accent! (patwah) We came as a family for Christmas and had four couples and had plenty of room for everyone and more ! We had our own cars so getting around was no problem . (We flew into Mobay and rented the car there) We bought our own groceries and cooked our own meals. The housekeeper did a wonderful job and the onsite groundskeeper was so very kind!!! Rudy was great to work with. Not located on the beach but we didn't care with the amazing views!!! We had an adventure every day..... Caves, waterfalls, crocodiles, scenic drive, beach day, to name a few! We stayed in 3 areas for our vacation and really enjoyed the Whitehouse area. The island is so big so we divided our stay into 3 areas. We stayed 3 weeks! Loved jamaica! Our family is not the resort stay type. So we liked the adventure...We even had the grandkids 2, and 1..... The villa is really set up well for privacy for all couples and just beautiful. Thanks Rudy !!!
