Completed in 2014, HIDDEN BAY by the SEA captures both the drama of an extraordinary elevated panorama of blue sea and the proximity of its own sandy beach. Its well-planned design attracts groups of up to 12 adults and especially two- and three- generation families. The architect listened when these homeowners ordered a full range of the comforts of a family-style home, equal accommodations for all guests, and capture of the outrageous beauty of their unique location. The interior designer added an uncluttered, immaculate style of unpretentious glamor – in short, an ideal vacation home. For those who want privacy during all this togetherness, ten individual outdoor sitting areas dot the seafront wall. A thatched-roof outdoor bar is yet another informal sitting area with tables for drinks and games.
As remarkable as the home itself are the finely-tuned staff members, pampering without ever intruding. Chef Marlon joined the staff in November 2016. Chef Marlon is a culinary expert who strongly believes that cooking is an ART. He has many years of experience both locally and internationally. Most recently, Chef Marlon has won a silver medal in the Jamaica Culinary Competition and a bronze team medal in the Taste of Jamaica Competition. Chef Marlon is a great Chef who goes above and beyond to make his guests happy.
The main house consists of 4 bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms - approximately 4000 sq.ft
A comfy wrap-around verandah with glorious view is the favorite gathering area. Step off the porch onto a grassy lawn, fresh water pool and terrace, and Travertine stepping stones to the pièce de résistance – an open sitting area on a dramatic promontory over the sea with sweeping views from horizon to sunrise to sunset. Sunset vigils with butler-served trays of drinks and hors d’oeuvres create indelible memories of each day’s long, breathtaking dusk. Cameras mandatory.
From this promontory, a stairway leads down to a private over-the-water stone deck supported on eons-old coral rock, an enviable spot with chaises for sunning and a jumping off point into the bay.
Or, across the lawn, walk down a Harry-Potter-style rock-clad stairway that looks like it could open to a cave and voilà! The hidden beach is a 100’ stretch of sand by the sea for barefoot shell gathering, for toddlers to splash in shallow waters and for taller guests to venture into the waves. Kayaks and vests are complimentary.

The NEIGHBORHOOD on RUNAWAY BAY
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.
