Villa Reviews:

“Wonderful place, we had a great time. I highly recommend this place. Everybody was welcoming and friendly and it was hard to go…”
~ 2018 AirBnB Review

“Bahia cottage was the perfect little beach cottage getaway for my husband as we celebrated our wedding anniversary. Very cozy, within a beautiful garden setting and right on the beach. It’s the rainy season so the open patio facing the water was the perfect place to lounge whenever we had to remain indoors because of the weather. The listing pictures do not do the cottage justice as it’s been renovated since and is decorated in a very stylish modern open design. Although fairly small, the kitchen area was well equipped for us to prepare our meals and there are a number of restaurants in the vicinity at which to eat out. Alternatively, the housekeepers/cooks are on hand to prepare meals if you so desire. Nicole, our host, the owner and the daytime staff were all very helpful, pleasant and accommodating and between 6pm-6am the nighttime security guard ensured we slept peacefully. We definitely will be back!”

“My husband and I stayed at Bahia Cottage in Apr, 2017 what a beautiful place. We stayed two weeks and didnt want to leave. The view was amazing. The staff is awesome and I don't like to use the word staff because they quickly became our friends. We have stayed in the fancy hotels with the fine dinning and nothing beats good home cooking, and Cheryl is the best! We truly mess everyone and definately will be back!! If you are looking for a quiet beautiful place forget the tourist traps and stay here!!!”

Wonderful cottage, exactly as shown in photos, with a lovely private beach and beautiful, well cared for garden. We went snorkeling on the reef just off the beach, using snorkeling equipment from Dale. Neighborhood felt very safe, with grocery stores nearby and a security guard on property at night. A/C, wi-fi and TV were great conveniences. Staff were wonderful, with delicious meals prepared by Sheryl and her staff. They were all very kind and went beyond expectation with an event where we hosted local friends for lunch - all raved re: the food and the setting. Very accessible from both MoBay and Kingston, especially with new freeway (T3 toll road). Very quick response to our questions, and very accommodating to our schedule in terms of checking in and out. Highly recommended, and we will be back for another visit!”

“Best thing about this place is the sound of the ocean day and night. It's set in a beautiful garden with hummingbirds and steps down to a perfect beach. Runaway Bay does not have many amenities so not a place for night life or flashy restaurants but it's perfect for peace, swimming, sunning and lazing. The staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful and always smiling.”

"Our stay at Bahia was lovely. The team quickly recognised that we were looking for lots of privacy and arranged for the meal preparation, gardening and housekeeping to take place every other day to leave us undisturbed as much as possible. The grounds are manicured beautifully, the beach is gorgeous, you've friendly locals and the cottage itself is perfect for a couple looking for a beachfront home away from home."

"Bahia House is a sweet little house surrounded by a beautiful garden of tropical flowers and many hummingbirds, great to watch. You open the back door to the view of the ocean which is turqoise in color and cristal clear.It really is a magical place.we spent a lazy week with the kids making sand castles.The two houses on either sides have pools and we were lucky enough to be invited to use them by the guests there.The staff were great,we actually chose not to use them for most of the time just wanted our privacy which they understood,although the meals we did have cooked by them were delicious. We had a great time, highly recommend it."

"My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at Bahia -- it exceeded our expectations! We were looking for a quiet place to relax and decompress for a few days and the property provided just that. As soon as we arrived the staff was very welcoming and anxious to make sure felt at home. The property is well kept and the location is perfect.

We had the greatest honeymoon at the Bahia - it was just perfect...exactly what we were looking for. The staff was very hospitable/friendly, made us feel right at home and were a pleasure to get to know. The food was incredible as well...thank you.
