About the property

4 ensuite bedrooms private pool and staff

Exodus Retreat offers the most magical of all views overlooking the sea and Jewel championship golf course. You can walk through your own back gate and tee off onto the 17th fairway, or take a ten minute walk across the golf course to your own private residents beach. Relax under the almond trees and enjoy the tranquility of a turquoise blue sea and white sands.

These prices include the villa (+ 4 en-suite bedrooms) Housekeeping included.

We can also provide airport transfers (cost from Montego Bay for example is US$40 per person including both trips)

Additionally, you have a driver and mini bus available on call at any time to go anywhere (costs vary depending on how many people, where you are going and how long you are going to stay) The driver will wait at the destination of your choice for as long as you need him.

This beautiful villa is built in a horseshoe shape around a large oval shaped swimming pool with the living room and bedrooms opening out through large sliding doors onto a spacious veranda.

We also have a creche separation available for families with small children, this attaches to all the wooden poles around the pool to protect toddlers from going close to the pool.

The villa is open to lovely sea breezes, and at night the pool is lit up so you can swim without worrying about leaving children in bed - as the pool is literally in the centre of the villa!! The villa is completely private, no one can overlook the pool!! In fact the only access to the pool is through the front door of the villa, so if you are looking for total privacy - you have found your destination!!

The villa has been completely rebuilt and refurbished, including all the bathrooms and a large newly built kitchen fully equipped with an imperial range stove, large fridge freezer & walk in pantry. The kitchen is more than suitable for large groups.

Sleeping Arrangements are as follows:-

Room 1 :- 1 king sized bed - or - 2 single beds

Room 2:- 1 king sized bed - or - 2 single beds

Room 3 :- 1 king sized bed - or - 2 single beds

Room 4 :- 1 king sized bed & 1 double - or - 1 double & 2 single beds

2 fold up beds + 1 cot available to go anywhere

We also have an additional 2 bedroom annex available to large groups only accessed from the car park - these 2 rooms are an additional US$50 per night including both rooms - guests from room 6 have to pass through Room 5 to get to the bathroom. Guests can choose to pay cash on arrival if they are unsure of the amount of people coming in their group, or would like to invite family members from Jamaica for family re-unions!

Cook is available as an optional extra to cook breakfast and diner.

With 20 years of experience cooking in some of Jamaica's finest luxury villas, Miss Monica has knowledge of an array of appetizing traditional recipes, along with many other international dishes. Miss Monica is also willing to create a dish of your choosing.

Additionally, if you wish, you can arrange with us to have Miss Monica prepare a meal for your arrival. We have an account with our local supermarket especially for our guests so food supplies can be delivered prior to your arrival. Supplies can be delivered anytime during your vacation as well.

About Clare

My name is Clare and I am an anthropologist having worked with nomads in The Middle East, Street children in Ethiopia. I have also travelled extensively throughout the world.

I am also a fine artist and when I am in Jamaica I love to paint!

Why Clare chose Runaway Bay

Apart from staying in a very beautiful property, we pride ourselves in offering a unique service, we take care of your every need and help you to organize your holiday in an efficient, cost effective way without intruding on your privacy and enjoyment.

I fell in love with this area many years ago and ended up Running away to Runaway Bay - as many of our returning guests do!!

We can also arrange your excursions around the island, and if you like try our Catamaran sailing trip and snorkeling - cost for the whole group is US$650 for the whole group and that is for most of the day!!

What makes this villa unique

We are actually in a prime position overlooking the golf course and only five minutes walk from the beach. I love it here as I really keep fit!! I like my neighborhood and have met some very interesting people who also own property here.

Runaway Bay is a very nice area for many reasons mainly the most amazing beach!! But also because it is so convenient. You can reach almost anywhere on the island getting there and back in a day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been lucky enough to spend time here on several occasions. First off the location is perfect. Situated in Cardiff Hall overlooking the golf course, its just a quick walk to either the pristine private beach, or choose the public beach to have lunch and a beer with the locals. All attractions in both Montego Bay and Ocho Rios are less than an hour away. The villa offers four 5 star suites with more rooms available for larger groups. Visit the website for all the particulars, what I can't stress enough is the value! I frequently visit Jamaica in the off season and love getting to experience opulence at affordable prices. For groups of 4-10 this villa CANNOT be beat. Steer clear of the boring all inclusives and enjoy the true Jamaica in style! You'll spend less money and leave with magical memories that will last a lifetime!

Great place all around!

  • 5 of 5

It was 5 of us from Switzerland. We have never been to Jamaica. We were realy lucky to have booked this villa. Communication with Clare prior our journey was great.

It's around an hour (easy) drive from the montego bay airport, that also very convenient.

I would highly recommend doing the catamaran trip.

I would also do anything Andrew suggests, like cruising around the mountains. He knows everyone and everything about Jamaica. He really made our stay even better. Thanks Andrew!

I would highly recommend visiting glistening waters.

Also, Sarah Bar in Salem is quite special.

The setup of the house is perfect, location is great, the staff is really nice. The beach is really close and very nice.

I will hopefull be able to come back one day.
