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.

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 !!!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I could not describe the absolutely fantastic time we had at FantaSea Villa! The Villa is absolutely gorgeous and had everything we needed. The Housekeeper and Groundsman made sure we were comfortable and had answers to all our questions. The Villa is immaculately clean and you want for nothing. The living room and kitchen open up to a spectacular view! The food was delicious and we loved walking up the hill to the restaurant (Elaine's). We went on a few day trips to local attractions and had a wonderful driver and guide. He was very knowledgeable and took care of us. We were a little nervous, but felt comfortable and safe being with someone. The YS Falls was definitely our favorite trip! Rudy, I have to say that your staff was excellent and treated us like extended family. We cannot wait to return and stay at your villa. SO much more to experience there! Chris

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!!!
