You’ll have the cottage to yourself.
This was the pimento storage house for the Cardiff Hall estate built in 1789. The Cottage has 2 Bedrooms & 1 Bathroom with a washing tub and a kitchen. The laundry room & Living Room has the ability to sleep another 2 persons. Private access to the Cardiff Hall Ocean Park Beach is provided with our Ocean Park Access Pass.

The space
Looking for peaceful getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life, this estate is nestled among the trees of the hills of Cardiff Hall with a view to the ocean on the north side of the estate. Access to the Private Cardiff Hall beach is included with your stay.

Guest access
You have access to most of surrounding land space (10 Acres but not all is accessible) , however the Cardiff Hall Great House is a private residence and is off limits. There are other 200 year old buildings in various state of disrepair which we do not recommend going inside. The cottage itself is located on the south side of the property has a view to to the mountains and looks north towards to the Great House.

Other things to note
Air conditioning is only available in the Master bedroom. Fans are available for other rooms.

To reduce our environmental impact, one set of bed linen and towels are provided per week per person during your stay. If you do need a new set, please ask us, there will be a small fee of $10 per person.

You are provided with a small starter kit of basic items. For the duration of your stay you will need to replenish your supplies at the local grocery store.

There is a WiFi router inside the cottage. Wi Fi Bandwidth is very limited in our area. Email and texting will be the most you can do. If you are lucky you can do VOIP but no video.

We do not provide housekeeping services during your stay. Please keep our cottage clean. Cleaning supplies (mop, bucket, chemicals etc) can be found in the cottage. However, if needed, housekeeping services are available for US$25 per day during the hours 8am-4pm.

Though there is a Washing Machine, it is in our house and is only operated by us or one of our staff. We charge US$10.00 per load (6lbs). This includes detergent and labour. Your clothes will be hung out to dry and rough folded.

Please ask us where to dispose of your garbage. We recommend using receptacles found at the local gas station or supermarkets where you buy your grocery items. Keep the small plastic bags that you get when you buy your items and use these to dump your garbage. Please do not leave garbage in the cottage. Dump your garbage and beer bottles Daily. This is the main cause for cockroaches.

One final note, we do have dogs, so look where you are walking and please don't step into the cottage if you have stepped in poo. If you need us to cage our dogs please let us know as normally at least 2 are out. They will not bother you once introduced. We did have a recent dog incident but that has since been dealt with.

Location

Runaway Bay, Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica

Overall Runaway Bay is a quiet town. We have 2 public beaches and 1 private beach. There is one fine dining restaurant called L'Escargot and several local eateries that serve Jerk Chicken etc. Our house is on a local "dirt/stone" road and generally quiet most of the times except for the occasional barking dog.
