Idle Hours Villa is a beachfront villa with a wonderful staff and relaxing atmosphere - a most comfortable and charming villa in Jamaica located in Runaway Bay.  This villa has prime location, sitting on one of Jamaica's largest privately-owned white sand beaches. For people looking for an intimate and private holiday where they can idle the hours away; Idle Hours Villa is the perfect spot. It is located in Runaway Bay, just 20 minutes from Ocho Rios and 55 minutes from Montego Bay.

The interiors of Idle Hours Villa are vibrant and brightly furnished. French doors open out from the dining and living room onto a lovely ocean view and a private beach. Meals can be served in the indoor dining room or on the covered verandah that also offers wooden rocking chairs for enjoying the view while rocking away. All three bedrooms are spacious and have attractive décor, with rich colors on the walls, classy furniture and tasteful fabrics. They offer air conditioning, ceiling fans and en suite bathrooms that are equally vibrant and lively.

The exterior of the Jamaica villa is just as magnificent. Idle Hours Villa sits directly on the beach, with only a few steps of the verandah separating the guests from dripping their feet into the warm sand and cool water. The beach is 25,000 square feet with 200 feet of sea frontage. There is a large almond tree in the middle of the beach, perfect for shade and features a hammock for idling time away.  Additionally, Idle Hours Villa has just built a freshwater swimming pool for guests’ enjoyment. The pool is very expansive and oval, 26ft long, 12ft wide; depth is 3.5ft - 5ft (no diving). It features a pool deck with very comfortable furniture.
