Bahia cottage was the beach retreat for a large cattle ranch in the hills. It has been our windsurfing, scuba diving and general hang-out place for the last 40 years. The original structure with bullet wood and cedar has been lovingly preserved. Native lumber is used for furnishings and cabinetry. A port hole from a shipwreck found its new home in the bathroom. The garden is a delight and the in-season mangoes are great. Starlit skies, sunsets and the sound of the waves make for great memories

The space
Experience relaxed Caribbean seaside living in BAHIA cottage. Listed on AirBNB in February 2019 for the first time by the owner after 30 years of vacation rentals, the recently refurbished open plan 1 bedroom cottage is nestled in lush tropical gardens directly on the mile-long sweep of white sands on the aptly named Runaway Bay ... and is conveniently located between the major north coast towns of Montego Bay and Ocho Rios.
Walk through the garden of colourful tropicals and step through a welcoming door to the relaxed open space of Bahia. Look through the cottage to the beach and sparkling waters of the bay. Exhale. Acknowledge that you are in paradise.
You'll be drawn to while away the hours lounging on the beach or in the garden under the almond tree. Relax in hammocks in the garden or on the patio; or you might just be tempted to jog along the beach. Kayaks are provided, and other water sports and horse back riding are available in the Bay.
For quiet relaxation on property, take a stroll around the garden. Spot the birds that may be nesting or on their own migratory vacation. See hummingbirds dart in and out of the spray when plants are being watered.
Bahia is an easy drive of just under an hour from the Montego Bay airport, and 1 hour and 20 minutes from the Kingston airport. It is a few minutes walking from the Jewels Golf Course and Jewels Waterpark; 20 minutes by car from Ocho Rios with its bustling local life and visitor offerings, and generally not more than an hour from most major attractions on the North Coast. Highly rated by our guests are Green Grotto Caves, Glistening Waters, Blue Hole, Dunn’s River Falls, Dolphin Cove, Mystic Mountain, Firewater, Nine Miles (Bob Marley’s Birthplace).
Return at day's end to your special holiday home to watch the sun dip behind the tropical sea. Finish the evening in style with a candlelit dinner on the patio.
Fall asleep on the Queen bed on the main floor and/or on the Full bed in the Loft to the sounds of the Caribbean Sea at your doorstep.
The staff of cook / cleaner and groundsman are there to pamper you.
There is a Smart TV - internet ready with Netflix account and cable. Free WIFI in the house and garden.
Bahia will provide memories and experiences that will last a lifetime.

I am a beach lover whose family has been fortunate to own Siesta, Bahia and Baywatch adjoining beach properties in Runaway Bay Jamaica for over 30 years. We are happy to share the villas and staff with guests who rave about their stay. Our staff is very important to us as they are to our guests; some staff have been with us for as long as 20 years. It has been a wonderful experience having guests show their appreciation of the property by returning multiple times; in one case 19 times in 20 years. We are excited to have been listed with AirBNB since January 2019 and look forward to meeting more lovely people from around the world.
