The extraordinary location of this unique cliffside home is absolutely stunning. Planted firmly on a rock ledge high above the sea, the precipice may be daunting to some. While a low stone wall wraps most of waterfront paths, we advise parents in advance they should plan to monitor adventurous youngsters along the walkways.

Hidden Bay 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.


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 splashing in shallow waters and for taller guests to venture into the waves.  Kayaks and vests are complimentary.


All 4 bedrooms feature quiet air conditioning, ceiling fans, iPod docks, closet safes, en-suite bathrooms and are equal in size.

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.

Guest Reviews

  • Wonderful trip. Everything went very, very smoothly and everyone had a ball. The staff at the house was awesome. We are booked to come back next year!.

    Robert V - January 2015

  • This brand new villa is nestled right on the top of a beautiful cove. The architecture by Ann Hodges, is perfect, a real beach style house.

    The clear sea below is amazing for snorkeling and on a calm day, Ricardo will take chairs down to the sandy slip, so you can sit with your toes in the water. On the other side of the villa is a sandy beach, great for an energetic swim. I love the way this house has been slotted in amongst the rocks. Clever stairs and a wooden gate take you through the rocks to the beach.

    I stayed in the Master bedroom two weeks ago and left my windows open, listening to the sounds of the sea. The beds are all like sleeping on pillows of air. The staff are super. The Home owner has a young and energetic team.

    Everything from their special welcome cocktail (quite a punch!) to the incredible food served by Chef Lyn or Chef Kim. Cocktails are served on the Corfu style sitting area out by the sea with your favorite drink. Parmesan crusted bammy sticks with a chorizo tapenade. Mmmm perfect.
