Our location provides you with all this in a site steeped in understated elegance, without the premium cost of a beachfront location. Experience Jamaica in safety and at your comfort level.

Please scroll down for accurate rates. Quote on site may not represent the correct charge for your group!

- Exclusive rental of the villa to one group at a time – yours!

All rates in US dollars and are subject to 10% Jamaican tax and 10 - 15% staff gratuity (not included) which covers staff overtime and their 'going the extra mile' for your wonderful stay. 10% surcharge for bookings less than 1 week. Christmas and New Years rentals are one week bookings only. Rates do not include meals. Guests should budget about US$45 per person per day for meals at the villa, more if you decide to eat out. In any case, you purchase the groceries to stock the villa or you can have the staff shop for you. We no longer do 'meal plans'. Guests now have full control of their meal choices, however please keep in mind that the villa staff prepares and serves all meals 'family style' which means everyone eats the same thing at a given sitting.

Max 8 bedroom occupancy 17 for rate listed above. Add US$75 per person per night for each additional guest otherwise (max villa occupancy 21). Inquire for further details.

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.'

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 key elements of the island!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our uniqueness stems from our consistency to high quality of service and our focus on the relaxation and well-being of our guests. Mais Oui remains committed to our goal to present an honest and genuine Jamaican experience for our guests. We are not about cutting corners or flashy beachfront photos just to entice travelers and 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 Bay (named by Christopher Columbus himself). This is reportedly the freshwater landing site in his most famed journey across the Atlantic to the Americas! Jamaica is an island filled with beauty and history. It's people are vibrant and colorful. Come and experience the REAL Jamaica at Mais Oui!
