Our guests say it best … : Prior to my arrival I was not sure what to expect, but once I walked through the front door what I saw exceeded my expectations. Upon arrival Mrs. Ruby, Dave and the staff gave us a very warm welcome, I instantly felt at home. The service was exceptional and the food was great. Mrs. Ruby saw to it that all our needs were met, the staff was very friendly and did an outstanding job of making us feel at home. The entire property was absolutely beautiful, the bedrooms were lovely and everyone fell in love with the pool. As for the wedding, I don't even know where to begin. Everything was perfect. It had everything I hoped for and a lot more. The flowers were absolutely beautiful, the cake was fantastic and the food was outstanding. The entire set up was simply elegant, I could not have asked for anything more. This was definitely a dream come true. I want to thank you and your staff for the wonderful treatment you showed to me and my guests and for the amazing job you did.

                          - Under an hour's drive from airport ... compared to 1.5hrs drive for people staying in Ocho Rios or Negril.

                          - Convenient base from which to see the island ... Within an hour from leaving Montego Bay, you will arrive at Mais Oui. Drive another 30-35 minutes and you are in Ocho Rios. This central location makes sightseeing choices more accessible and enjoyable.

                          - Close to a host of other activities ... 30 attractions are within a 30 minute drive of the villa ... additional snorkeling and scuba diving sites, golf courses, horseback riding stables, tennis courts, water-sports, shopping, night-life, historic sites, and almost anything else your heart desires!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2000

                          About the owner: My wife and I built Mais Oui (pronounced 'May Wee') in 1999 and opened officially in 2000. We welcomed our first guests before the lawn had even successfully grown because we were eager to share the hospitality of the Jamaican culture and have everyone visit us to experience the welcomed relaxation and understated elegance of Mais Oui!

                          Why the Owner Chose Discovery Bay:
                          We're not on the water, but are instead 'ocean view' because the Jamaican experience isn't only about the beach and 'reggae'. It's also about the food and the people which also includes their culture and history. There's no need to pay a beachfront premium to enjoy these elements of the island!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          Over the years, we've noted a significant effort by many other locations to copy what Mais Oui has to offer. You'd never know it unless you have been following the listing descriptions of other villas in the area, which of course most folks don't. Guess then our uniqueness would have to stem from our consistency to high quality of service and our focus on the relaxation and well-being of our guests. Despite the stiff competition from other locations, Mais Oui remains committed to our goal to present an honest and genuine Jamaican experience for our guests. We are not about cutting corners just to maximize profits. We like to offer as many amenities as we can such that when our guests decide to venture off-site they do so because of a desire, rather than a need. Mais Oui is located on the western cusp of the Rio Bueno (named by Christopher Columbus) Bay. This is reportedly the landing site in his most famed journey across the Atlantic to the Americas.
