Designed as a lazy vacation, we experienced a great stay at the Whistling Villa in Runaway Bay. This was my second visit to this property where we stayed for nine days. The entire villa is spacious with loads of privacy and is ideally laid out for a group of four couples or 8 friends.
The grounds are lovely with tropical plants and fruit trees. Waking up each morning to the chirping sound of birds was a welcome way to greet each morning. The staff was excellent; the food was delicious. Thank you, Miss Dorothy and Chris exceptional for your exceptional service. Three cheers to the entire team!
Thanks to Osburn and Paulette for sharing your private oasis with others.
It is truly appreciated.
My family and I stayed at Whistling Villa for our Christmas vacation. The layout of the place was nice, with plenty of privacy between the bedrooms, and an extremely large open concept living and dining area. The bedrooms were spacious and clean and we were very glad to have the air conditioning on some of the warmer nights. My 9 year old son spent a lot of time in the pool when we were not at Flavours Beach. The beach is about a 10-15 minute walk away and in my opinion is one of the best beaches in Jamaica. During our stay we also went to Dunns River Falls which is about a 30 minute drive away and were picked up at the villa by a bus for an excursion to rafting and zip lining. All in all we had an excellent stay, the staff was quite friendly and although always available was hardly noticed. Wished we could have stayed longer.
Just wanted to let you know that my family and I enjoyed our stay immensely at your beautiful Villa. We were on the road a lot but when we were there, it was indeed comfortable and pleasurable.
You have a wonderful staff. Chris, Deloris and Dorothy was amazing. We look forward to booking again in the future.
I wish for you and your family the best of 2018. God bless.
We chose Whistling Villa for a family vacation because of the ease and helpfulness during the booking process. Our questions were quickly answered. As we were travelling with special needs kids we wanted to be sure that we had as much information as possible. Whistling Villa proved to be all that it promised and more. The staff Chris and Dorothy took such good care of us and made us feel at home on the very first day. The meals were so good and especially our lobster and yummy soup! The pool was pristine and the kids were in it every day! Lennox was a great, safe driver, made good suggestions and even when we had to close our eyes because of the other drivers we survived! Our grandsons are already asking when we can go back. Hopefully soon... Thanks for making the kids first Jamaican vacation something memorable!
This is our second time returning here with family and friends for a truly private and enjoyable vacation. It is in the ideal location for relaxation and if you are into seeing the island like we were its an ideal location for day trips. We hired the optional driver named Lennox who took us snorkeling, horseback riding, Mystic Mountain, Turtle River Falls, Green Groto Caves, shopping and to the private beach. He is well worth the money if you are into exploring the island like we were, he knows where everything is and waits for you at each event, and keeps you safe. We can't say enough about Dorothy the lady we hired to cook, the food was absolutely delicious, didn't matter what she cook it was sensational. Christopher is the groundskeeper and he works hard and takes great pride in the beautiful grounds the villa is situated on. Very private and secure and the pool is very welcoming on the hot humid days to just float around in, so relaxing. This is the place to go to stay on budget and enjoy family and friends in private away from the crowds that you find on the resorts. Hats off again Dorothy and Christopher you are amazing people and your hospitality really made our trip. If we do return to Jamaica we will be coming back to this villa, its the place to be.
