Hidden Bay by the Sea


6 12 6 + 1 half

Hidden Bay is a beautiful luxurious six-bedroom villa completed in the spring of 2014. Located on the western edge of the historic village of Runaway Bay, Hidden Bay Villa is a secret and secluded treasure. Breathtakingly elegant, this grand new property combines the best of traditional Jamaican architecture with the utmost in modern luxuries. Its rich wooden arches and carved accents perfectly complement its light furnishings for a warm and cozy feel, though it is anything but small. Although the property is on the main road, the house sits behind a high concrete and wooden wall designed to be harmonious with the villa. The inventive design of the house combined with the wall help to insulate you from most of the activity on the road and nearby village.

The expansive main house is perfect for families and friends with four spectacular air-conditioned bedrooms, each with its own balcony and awe-inspiring view and luxurious en-suite bathroom: each room is equally as stunning as the last. The colonial-style louvered windows and doors allow the beautiful outdoors in, so you can relax and fall asleep to the gentle sound of waves lapping against the shore. Tucked away behind the sea grape and almond trees is a quaint cottage with an additional two bedrooms, kitchenette, living room and Jacuzzi. Perfect for a romantic escape from the rest of the world.

Beauty is not limited to the interiors of this cliff-side paradise; it spills out over the grounds through lush gardens, lavish terraces and sparkling blue water. Vibrant green trees and colourful flowers create the perfect nooks for relaxing and reading a good book or swinging in a hammock in the shade. They also lead the way to the stunning cliff-side infinity pool and hanging terrace, where you can bask in the warm Jamaican sun, while looking out over the serene Caribbean Ocean. With 400 feet of waterfront and beach, jumping in to the glistening expanse is easy and fun. From swimming and snorkelling, to just splashing around, there is never a dull moment at this incredible, secluded villa.

Hidden Bay shares a beautiful, secluded, white sand beach with two other villas. Even though the beach is not completely private, you may have to share it with a maximum of six to eight other people (the capacity of the other two villas combined).

This dream destination comes complete with a dedicated and friendly staff who cater to your every whim and desire. In the kitchen, our expertly trained chef will whip up the most elegant and creative meals to suit your culture, tastes and dietary restrictions. So whether you come together as a family, recounting the day's events over the full-size porch and indoor dining tables, or enjoy a light snack on the cliff-side patio, our chef will prepare delicious and distinctive dishes, made just the way you like them. For your every other need, our attentive butler, housekeeper and laundress will be at your beck and call both night and day.

With such grand accommodations, fun-filled activities and superior service, Hidden Bay Villa is an incredible destination for the entire family.

If your group exceeds the capacity of Hidden Bay, you may rent the villa in conjunction with Spanish Cove and Idle Hours; the two other villas that share the beach.

Runaway Bay, Jamaica

60 minutes to the airport.
Five minutes to Runaway Bay Golf Club.
20 minutes to Ocho Rios.

This home, pools and gardens sit solidly on a horizontal expanse of coral rock. The privacy of Hidden Bay belies its location in the heart of the historic little town of Runaway Bay. In fact, one may miss the villa’s entrance gate and impressive wall that spans 450 feet along the road just feet from the sea. But do not miss the opportunity to stroll through this local Jamaican village, unspoiled by super clubs or mega hotels. Immediately across the street is the irresistible Best Little Pattie Shop in Jamaica. The supermarket and hardware store are in the village center. The friendly townspeople will welcome you warmly.

A Vacation Like No Other!

I treated a group of 8 friends and myself to a week-long getaway at Hidden Bay by the Sea in Runaway Bay, Jamaica for my 65th birthday celebration. To a person, we continue to say that we were transformed by the experience. We rented both the main house and the cottage so in effect, we had our own private large resort complete with private beach, hot tub, a sea-viewing platform, beautiful verandas and balconies, and 10 or more outdoor seating areas - not to mention the beautifully appointed interiors to the houses. But what made Hidden Bay truly exquisite was the 7-person staff (8 if you count the overnight security guard who patroled the grounds) attending to 9 guests! Two chefs, two butlers, two housekeepers and a groundskeeper - and they were all magical! Examples of the above-and-beyond treatment: After every outing, getting out of our van we were greeted with icy towels scented with almond extract with which to refresh ourselves. The staff remembered every food and beverage preference, allergies, etc. and accommodated them to the fullest. When we mentioned plans to watch the NFL playoffs, bowls of popcorn appeared in the main living room. The staff braved blustery winds one night to transform the main yard into a fairyland of strung lights and color strobes for my birthday dinner. And speaking of food, OMG! The dining was exquisite! Chef Chris and Chef Omar produced amazing creations every night - and the breakfasts and lunches were feasts for the eyes as well as the palate. Everything was made from fresh, local food (the produce in Jamaica is amazing!) and was delectable. The housekeeping staff moved about like magical elves, turning down beds, closing up plantation shutters, turning on A/C units with ceiling fans every evening. And it seemed that in the 5 mins. it took each morning for you to pour your freshly brewed cup of coffee and walk to the edge of the upper yard to gaze at the ocean before breakfast - Voila! Your room and bathroom were cleaned! It was very easy to hire in special activities to come to the villa - our group had a yoga instructor one day, and massage/facial/pedicure treatments from Oshun Dream on multiple occasions. The grounds are large enough that each person getting a service could have privacy. Just ask the staff and a kayak and stand-up paddle boards are delivered to the beach for your use. This is a truly stunning property and the staff is amazing. No other vacation will ever compare.

Jamaican Paradise - Hidden Bay By The Sea

Hidden Bay By The Sea Villa in Runaway Bay was everything we had hoped for, and more. Starting with an unbelievably beautiful setting and Villa Staff, we were impressed from arrival to departure. Chef Marlon was superb, and his daily creations were truly to die for. Richie, our butler, made sure that everyone was taken care of at all times. The maids Samoy and Chadile were also extremely competent and accommodating. Always there but never intrusive, the staff was first class. I could go on for hours on this Villa, its beauty, its privacy and setting. We felt secure at all times, and the added touch of a pool, hot tub, and beautiful accommodations was truly breathtaking. Rental Escapes made sure that we were well informed about everything from transportation to excursions and tipping the staff. Jackie Garabedian of Rental Escapes made sure that we were informed and taken care of throughout the process. Truly truly first class. I highly recommend this villa and Rental Escapes.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Rental Escapes!

From the moment we arrived at the airport, all of our needs were taken care of sometimes before we could even think of what we needed. Hidden Bay is a spectacular oasis. Waking up to the ocean waves crashing against the reefs and then walking out onto the porch is a memory that I have embedded in my mind. Everywhere you walk, there is another place to explore- the hot tub provided the backdrop for our late afternoon cocktails as we watched the sun set. The lower level was a great place to swim out into the sea or just watch the fishermen trying to catch their daily meals. We used the smaller cottage for our spa afternoon- Verona and Joy set up their tables on the porch and created the most relaxing atmosphere. The staff at the villa couldn't have been more gracious. Kim's cooking was fantastic! She made sure that my special dietary needs were met and did a great job of not wasting any of the food. Tommy and Ritchie made sure that our glasses were never empty and our belly's were always full of Kim's yummy creations. On the eve of my sister-in-law's birthday, they set up tables for cocktails, strung lights across trees and created a beautiful and festive vibe. I think the staff had fun when the got to see one of the members of the steel band surprise us as he started dancing and juggling with fire! What a memorable moment. Other memorable moments came when we went snorkeling and of course our trip to Secret Falls. We actually thought about not doing the lazy river but I am so glad that we decided to traveled down together while singing our favorite Bob Marley songs. The views were again, amazing and the memories were priceless. I hope to visit Hidden Bay again and I long for Kim's banana nut muffins. Thank you for recommending Hidden Bay. Thank you for helping me plan my birthday celebration. I am grateful for the lasting imprint this trip gave me. Fondly, Gail and Reed Slogoff
