Runaway Bay Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Child-friendly, Horse riding holidays, flying holiday, inexpensive

The spacious bungalow and the apartment suitable for tourists who want to get to know the country and its inhabitants. Our guests have the option between a small pool for relaxation + a to select great for swimming.

A housekeeper provides free daily cleaning in all accommodation. On request she prepares the meals. This service is also included. Food can be bought in the nearby shops.

All tenants have free access to approximately 1,000 meters from its private beach on the toilet, shower and sun loungers (extra charge) are available. We are the only private providers in Jamaica, in which you can spend riding holidays. With our own horses we do not only trips to the beach, but also beautiful rides in the nearby mountains. If you like high up wants to can a flight booking in our own UL aircraft. Incidentally, the only one on the island.

Special features: For aviation enthusiasts, it is certainly interesting to note that you can book in a UL-plane from the house owner from October to April scenic flights. So you can look at Jamaica times from an entirely different perspective. But riders have come to the right place. We have our own horses with which rides to the beach or in the mountains can be undertaken. And which rider dreamed not ever want them to swim with a horse in the sea? For us, this is of course possible. A comfortable pants (z. B. Jeans) and sneakers should not be missed to ride in the luggage.

Clean, Spacious and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the Christmas holidays by Monika & Axel, and their staff Garfield & Lorna four wonderful people.

We rented the bungalow and had it all for ourselves. Three bedrooms equipped each with a shower room, toilettes, towels, closets and a mosquito net over each bed. The rooms are only equipped with a ceiling fan, but this was enough and we never suffered from heat. The house is well equipped (just like you were at home)! All you need to bring along is yourself and your smile.

This place is a real paradise: Clean from the ceiling to the floor with a nice pool and a back veranda with deck chairs to chill out in the evening while drinking a cold “Red Stripe”.

There are, jerk centers, restaurants and grocery stores in the area; 3 minutes’ walk. The restaurants offer Jamaican style food at very low cost ($JA 350 up). There is also a nice and clean private beach nearby.

The neighborhood is safe day & night. Nobody bothered us while we were out.

Monika & Axel are very nice people to be around, they are very attentive and very easy going people.

My husband is a beginner in English (he’s French), but with Monika & Axel he was very comfortable trying to speak “his” English. They were very patient with him and used simple words for his to understand and participate in conversations.

We practiced horseback riding with Monika; if you are beginners, believe me 2 hours is enough!

We highly recommend you to stay by them. The place is nice and beautiful as the owners & their staff.

Very Relaxing and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This was our sixth visit to this property. Again we very much enjoyed our stay. There is new furniture in the villa living room so made it comfortable to relax in the evenings. We visited an outdoor bar close by for karaoke night which was a lot of fun. Had dinner there about 4 times as well and it was great. We always feel very safe walking in the neighborhood. There are a few grocery stores and pharmacies within walking distance. Courtney took us on a mountain tour which was gorgeous and we swam in a beautiful blue hole fed by an underground stream in a cave. Claudette, the housekeeper is such a lovely person and she does such a great job of taking of us. She is respectful and provides privacy by cleaning once we have left for the day. I always feel so spoiled when she is there. We have done several tours in the past so this trip was more about laying on the beach and relaxing which is just what we did as the weather was fabulous. 1/2 day of rain in two weeks so someone was shining on us. I would highly recommend a stay here and you have the option of the apartment which is suitable for two to three people.

Owner's Response: We saw that you guys had a very relaxing time at our property. That is the kind of vacation, what most of our guests are looking for. Relaxing from the hard working time at home. We try our best to make the people feeling comfortable at our property. Claudette, the housekeeper is getting better and better in her job. She has learned a lot over the last 3 years. Looking forward to see you again. And good people deserve to have good weather :-)

perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Sonnenbergs, our first time to Jamaica May, 2011. Loved it, go if resorts aren't your cup of tea and you'd rather see Jamaica! Our hosts became our friends and we still had privacy and time alone. Very friendly cool people.

My Home away from Home once again!

  • 5 of 5


I'm a repeat guest and I just to say that every visit is a good and my first visit. I'm proud to tell people that this is my home in Jamaica. The staff very kind and friendly and the property very well kept and clean. Everything is walking distance including the beach, Tennis, Golf, Bars, gift shops, restaurants and grocery stores. The staff even arranges tours and horse back riding for a fee. I highly recommend this property for safe, comfortable and joyous accommodations.

Rainbow apartment property 23023

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the apartment from 14th Nov to 28th November. This is our 2nd stay with Monika and Axel and once again they made us very welcome and comfortabl. Security is excellent, atmosphere congenial and there is always someone on hand to help if necessary.

We were out and about a lot of the time but if there were activities happening we were always invited to join in and treated as friends which we feel is what we have become. Nothing is too much trouble down to the smallest request.

We would certainly stay with monika and Axel next time we come to jamaica, and we would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a reasonablly priced base with as much or as little input from the owners as they desire. An excellent choice.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Just returned last weekend from Jamaica. This was our second visit to Rainbow Villa. Although we had initially booked the apartment we were unexpectedly upgraded to the 3 bdrm villa. What a pleasant surprise.

Axel and Monika cater to our every request from helping us with our shopping to providing personalized tours at reasonable rates. Shopping is close by, the beach is easily within walking distance. The beach itself is clean and well maintained. If you just want to cool off in the late pm the little pool suffices quite nicely. We saw the work being done on the new pool and I'm sure it will be very enjoyable once completed.

Can't say enough about Sylvie, the housekeeper. Wanted to bring her home with me. And there is Courtney, who helps with everything from stocking the fridge with beer(reasonably priced), to tours, maintaining the grounds, etc. Would check in daily to ask if we needed anything. How nice is that. The villa is clean, comfortable and well equipped for cooking, relaxing and having friends over for dinner.

There is a bar/restaurant within walking distance and a Sports Bar with live music also close by. Always felt safe and very much at home during our stay. Can't say enough about our experience at Rainbow Villa. Do try it for yourself.

Claudette, our good soul, pampers the palate of our guests with Jamaican delicacies, for which you only find his ingredients or give cause for concern. You also cleans everyday all rooms, so you only have to relax. We take care of the rest. The bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans. In the garden, which has a beautiful trees, there is a small pool where you can relax very well. Since the pool area from the outside is not visible, you can also sunbathe without clothes there. A few steps away there is another pool to swim in and cool geeigent is.
