House - 5 Bedrooms - 4.5 Baths - (Sleeps 12)
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 White House
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.

Excellent location, amazing view!
As mentioned in my previous review, FantaSea is an amazing place to holiday for family or group holidays. The staff there are really attentive and helpful, the landscaping is beautiful, but most of all, the view from the balcony over the ocean is picture perfect, especially at sunset! Lots of space to relax inside or by the pool. Clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!
Thank you for the glowing review .My hope is that everyone who stays here will enjoy the property, staff, amenities and the views given by nature. It is my goal to try to give everyone a very memorable pleasant experience. Thank you again. Rudy Miller
We were a group of scientists travelling to Whitehouse to survey the reefs. Our stay at FantaSea made it seem as if we were on holiday, while we were really working long hours from early in the morning till late at night. Watching the sunrise over the bay from the balcony was amazing. Not to mention the sunsets. And after being out on the water during the mid-day heat of the sun, it was really nice to come back and simply relax by the pool for a bit before diving into our data.
The property is well kept by Neville and Miss Tatsy made sure our rooms were cleaned every day. They really did a great job welcoming us and making sure our stay was comfortable. We will certainly be back and highly recommend to other travellers.
Thank you for your positive response we try hard to make your stay memorable in a positive way and we are always open to ways to improve our relationship with you our guests. Thank you. Rudy. Miller owner
Absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful place!
Our family and our friends family stayed here for a week. We were cordially welcomed by the caretaker and the housekeeper.. they brought our luggage in and showed us around the house. The pool was a big highlight for the children. We loved the open floorplan , the inside and outside seamlessly flowed together. We used the hammock alot. One thing that made our stay special was the interaction with the caretaker and the housekeeper.. they were super friendly and helpful . We'd love to come back and would encourage others to enjoy this beautiful place..
Thank you very much for the excellent review. We strive to have our guests enjoy their stay with us. There is simple thing I have my staff to be guided by treat the guests the way you would want to be treated when you are on vacation and we will have no problems. Thank you again and you will always be welcome to stay with us again. Rudy. Miller
Great for large groups
FantaSea Villa was perfect for our large group (9). There was plenty of room to spread out. The caretaker was excellent and fit in well with our group. We loved having a housekeeper tidy up every day. The house does need a little updating. Both refrigerators are on their last leg and we struggled with keeping food and libations cold at times. Regardless, we made it work. The beds were quite comfortable. It is worth knowing that two of the rooms only have access by going around the back of the house. There is no entrance from within. Each room has it's own lock and key, similar to hotels. The location was very secluded which our group appreciated. Be sure to pick up groceries at the Megamart. We thought the only downfall was the trucks "jake-brakes" and the barking dogs that were prevalent. The pool is also not a full size pool. This is a bit deceiving by looking at the pictures online. Regardless, it was adequate for our purposes. We would rate this somewhere between and 3 and 4. Thanks for a great vacation!
Thank you for the review. I am aware of the refrigerator situation and have already ordered replacements for them but like every thing else here it takes time sometimes more than the average. I am happy that overall you had a good experience. Rudy. Miller owner
FantaSea Villa is a stunning property that is perfectly situated and beautifully maintained!!
Our stay at FantaSea Villa exceeded all of our hopes and expectations!! There is a stunning view from every room.
The design of the house results in lovely cooling breezes every day. The STAFF are welcoming, do a great job, are extremely trustworthy and so hospitable.
Some things to keep in mind are: The trip down to the beach is a bit of a trek though we love the pool at the house and, it is simple to get a driver to take you to the beach. Takes about 90 minutes to get from Montego Bay airport to the house but the ride is such a pleasure and gives you a chance to see the country in all its beauty and uniqueness.
If you are looking for an all-inclusive stay at a resort filled with other Canadians, Americans, Europeans then this is not the place for you ( we did one day pass at sandals resorts and that was enough for us) but if you are looking for an authentic yet still luxurious Jamaican experience, then this is the perfect place!!!
Thank you for the beautiful comments, it has been and always will be mine and the staff’s primary goal to provide a villa that will allow the guests to enjoy the real Jamaica and experience true Jamaican hospitality. I thank you again from all of us and hope you will visit again or recommend us to your friends. Thank you Rudy Millet
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.
