Whistling Villa, Runaway Bay, St. Ann


pool and lounge area

Whistling Villa is located in Runaway Bay, a small town about 20 minutes from Ocho Rios, along the north coast of the island.  Kate and I stayed here for 8 days/7nights in September, 2011, and loved it!  Admittedly, we were the only guests at the time, so we had the entire villa to ourselves … perhaps that added a bit of extra charm to our visit.

We booked our trip through a website called dojamaicayourway.com, which helps you plan your trip to Jamaica … the local way.  Its a great website, if you’re planning your trip online be sure to check out the site!  All that to say, we never dealt with the owner of the villa, but dojamaicayourway was super speedy getting us the information regarding the villa and making our reservations.  We paid $75/night per room, so for two rooms for 7 nights it was $1050.  We were there during the low season so I’m sure the price differs depending on the time of year.  (September turned out to be an AMAZING time to visit.  No lines at the airport and we still had great weather!!)  This price included two rooms with ensuite bathrooms and full access to the villa – kitchen, pool, living area, dining room, outdoor patio, and housekeeping and maintenance.
