Villa overview - owner's description

Exodus Retreat offers Luxury 5* accommodation with private pool and beach overlooking championship golf course and the Caribbean sea.

Exodus Retreat is beautifully situated overlooking Runaway Bay golf course and the sea. Guests can take a five minute stroll across the course down to the sea.

Walk along the beach to relax under the almond trees and enjoy the tranquility of your own private residents beach.

Tastefully decorated with exotic tropical plants and orchids, the villa offers four-bedroom luxury five star living accommodation. The villa is built in a horseshoe shape around a large oval shaped private swimming pool.
The bedrooms open out onto the veranda through double tinted glass sliding doors surrounding the pool.

We also have a creche separator that separates the veranda from the pool area for toddlers. It can be hooked on to the poles and removed when necessary.

All the bedrooms have their own adjoining luxury en-suite onyx bathroom. There are king size beds with new therapeutic mattresses (very comfortable!) an extra two twin beds available upon request. All the bedrooms are equipped with A/C, ceiling fans, high speed wireless internet and 32 inch flat screen TV's/cable.

The living room is equipped with Cable TV and a 47" Cinema plasma Screen. The living room opens through very large wide sliding doors onto the veranda surrounding the pool - the living room and the veranda then become one.

The linen cupboard is fully stocked with bed linen towels and beach towels.

Breakfast and dinner are served on the veranda overlooking the pool, guests provide their own supplies, however, staff at the villa can arrange for supplies to be delivered prior to your arrival.

The kitchen and wash room with 3 washings machines are equipped to cater for large groups.

Runaway Bay beach is a beautiful sandy beach that stretches the whole length of the bay, with a reef ideal for snorkeling and diving and safe swimming. Here there is a restaurant called Flavors offering a selection of Jamaican cuisine with a few tables overlooking the ocean.

Further down the beach is our private residents sandy beach and bar.

The beach is lined with magnificent almond trees offering shade from the sun. Sun chairs are also available

We have access to fresh fish, seafood, and organically grown fruit and vegetables and meat coming direct from local farmers. Supplies can be delivered prior to your arrival, as we have a guest account at the local supermarket - Miss Monica can then make sure there is a lovely meal waiting for you when you arrive.
Transportation can be arranged for small and large groups to go on excursions around the island.

The villa is very private and our friendly, experienced staff will cater for your needs without intruding on your holiday.

Even before you arrive feel free to make any special requests so that prior arrangements can be made to ensure your vacation is comfortable and enjoyable.

We also have separate packages available on request for Exodus Retreat that includes yoga, reiki healing and a nutritionist - please enquire for more details thanks!

Near the beach is a new water park that is said to be the best in the whole of the Caribbean. Entry to the water park is US$50 for adults and $25 for children for the day!

Family from Yampa, USA Dec 2015

Great vacation! Our family of 13 had a wonderful week at Exodus Retreat. The house was comfortable and held ALL of us. The pool on the back balcony was spectacular! Miss Monica the cook is to die for and you will want to take her home. All the staff on the grounds were great, polite and very friendly. We hardly knew they were there and when they were there, they were great to be around. Clare was amazing, available for every need and question we had! She was so helpful and great to talk with. Everton the driver was great too! Get his number because he is a great tour guide and will take you anywhere and is very helpful when out and about.

The house suited us well. We had beds for everyone in the family and we all had our own space when we needed it. Evette did a great job of keeping up with the laundry and housekeeping. I highly recommend the chicken and rice and a fish meal that Miss Monica makes! With our big family we chose to eat home every night and we were never disappointed, we couldn't believe how great each meal was. We would liked to have tried Sharkie's Restaurant, but never found the time, so if you are in town maybe try it out.

The beach was about a 15 min walk down the hill. You have the option to walk up the public beach to the private sector, our walk up the road to the private area. I recommend the road. The public beach was a little overwhelming with young kids. Be prepared to have a lot of people come up to you. The private beach was quiet and secluded. There were tables and lawn chairs available for a couple of bucks and the water was great. Not big waves ,so older kids looking for adrenaline rushes, probably wont get it from the waves. Nevertheless just being on a beautiful beach in Jamaica is amazing!

If looking to snorkel, look Devon up at Columbus Park in Discovery Bay. There is great snorkeling right there and Devon, even though he isn't the typical guide, was a hoot and the big kids had an awesome time with him.

We had a great vacation and we recommend the house to everyone. Enjoy your stay and have a wonderful vacation!

My family enjoyed their stay at Sevilla Villa. It is a beautiful property in the perfect location. Thanks for your hospitality!


From Reading

Before arriving we thought the photos were probably tarted up a bit to make the place look better than it is. They arent and the place is terrific. Clare, the owner, lives next to the villa and could not have been more thoughtful about our stay - Clare was genuinely concerned that we have a good time and took the trouble to drive us around the area on the first day. The pool and villa were clean, in a good state of repair and perfect for our needs. The cook, Miss Monica was excellent and we all put on some weight as a result. We ate out on several days as well and enjoyed the food where-ever we went.

We will go back to Sevilla Villa and recommend it to anyone wanting a villa in the Runaway Bay area. By the way, whilst Runaway Bay itself doesnt have a great deal going on (I like that), it is ideally located for attractions to the East and to the West. Its easy to visit Mo Bay and Ochi. Reliable and reasonable taxis are located nearby (just down the road) and for bigger parties Claire has an arrangement with a small bus with a driver (Everton) that you can hire separately. Claire provided a mobile phone with the key contacts on it. We also hired a car and this worked out really well. There is a golf-course at the bottom of the garden, a really beautiful little beach 15 - 20 minutes walk away (the walk is safe and simple), a modern gym within walking distance (20 mins) and a super beach bar/restaurant a couple of miles away, called Sharkies, where we drank and ate several times and the boys learnt to dive. We had a really great time.


From Atlanta, Ga

I have to start by saying thank you soooo much Clare for you hospitality and never leaving us in the cold. She was the perfect hostess and was available at any hour even taking me to the store, ATM, even as far as driving me to the beach so I knew how to get there. Clares home is perfect updat ed and comfortable. Paulette and Rollins do a great job. Rollins thanks for the mangos and especially the roasted breadfruit and late night treat treats. Ms. Monica the food was delish. One thing if you have children under 7 you really have to watch them with the pool,(wer braught 4 of ours) its very close to the quarters. I would definitely stay there again. PS I found them on www.trip Clare got back to me the same night that I requested availability which was needed the next afternoon and she was more than able to oblige with extreme short notice. Thank you. Jasmine GA. USA


From Usa

The villa is amazing! The house is made around the pool which makes it very convenient for swimmers and non-swimmers. There are 4 bedrooms, 3 around the pool. Rooms have air-conditioning and the villa is tastefully done up. There is also wifi and a TV in the villa! Ms. Monica, the cook is a delightful woman and Ms. Clare, the owner of the villa is very helpful. Ms. Clare helps you figure out groceries and transportation which makes the stay very relaxing. The villa is a 10 minute walk to the beach, through a golf course. 5 minutes walk from the beach along the water is a private beach! We went as a group of 9 and had the most amazing week. Would definitely recommend this villa to another group. It is perfect for couples, friends and even college students!

This villa is situated in a wonderful elevated position overlooking the golf course with a glimpse of the ocean beyond. The pool forms the hub of the villa, and becomes the central focus of villa activity. The pool is a perfect temperature - cool enough to refresh, but warm enough to wallow in and have a sundowner! The villa owner, Clare, is very hospitable and does everything to help make your stay enjoyable. It is an ideal venue for a party of golfers: the course is accessed from a gate in the back garden and the clubhouse is about 5 minutes walk away (there is a facility to leave clubs at the clubhouse), and when you are at the villa you can while away time watching other golfers tee off from the vantage point over the 8th tee.

Private Owner From Runaway Bay, Jamaica Member since Mar 2008

My name is Clare and I own and manage Exodus in Runaway Bay along with my son and two daughters. I am actually an anthropologist and came to the Caribbean from UK to find a family business four years ago. We have since completed a lot of work on the property and feel happy that we have a dream property in Jamaica that we would like to share with others. We have wonderful staff, in fact I inherited Paulette our house keeper, she was here for many years before I arrived and is now part of our family.
