Property description

Mais Oui is Ideal for Medium to Large Group Gatherings & Family Reunions in Jamaica.

Mais Oui is a single, large 8 bedroom villa. Mais Oui (pronounced May Wee) is a fully staffed ocean-view location best for groups of 6 to 17 guests because of it's large size. We offer many amenities and a central location from which to experience the island of Jamaica! The owners and staff invite you to come for a REAL Jamaican vacation as you immerse yourself in the food culture and amenities offered at Mais Oui! Our location provides you with all this in a site steeped in understated elegance. Experience Jamaica in safety and at your comfort level.

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

- Large size of the villa sleeps 6 to 17 under one roof with enough space to give each person privacy.

- Our meal arrangement provides maximum flexibility for your dining preferences with delicious meals prepared on-site … the highlight of any Mais Oui experience.

- The villa is rented with full staff so you can maximize your fun and relaxation!

- A host of on-site amenities to suit multi generational groups - kids, parents, grandparents … Swim in the pool, lounge at the beach, play tennis on our court, have a massage at our spa, read a good book from our library lounge, take a tour of the garden, snorkel in the calm waters of our local beach.

- Adventurous excursions nearby … Over 30 attractions within 30 minutes drive.
- Only 52 min drive from MoBay airport
- Short 3 min walk to the nearby beach or a 10 minute walk around the bay to a larger beach

Beach: Short 2 minute stroll takes you to our local beach ... closer than you are if you are in most 'beachfront' hotels ... plus you save on the beach front premium!

Meals: Guests provide their own food - you DO NOT have to go shopping yourself - which the staff will prepare for them (we are rented full staff only). Budget about US$50 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. If you do not use the van and driver service you will need to pay for transportation.

Please note: RATES DO NOT INCLUDE MEALS

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. Christmas and New Years rentals are one week bookings only. Rates do not include meals. Minimum rental rate is for 6 persons. Maximum occupancy per room 2 - 3 persons depending on configuration. 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 created Mais Oui to be more than a home away from home. It was designed to be super comfortable and well equipped so that guests would not miss the hotel experience … "Upscale but not uptight" as one guest puts it. As an independent property that has to compete not only with hotels but also gated planned communities with club memberships, we chose to provide a host of amenities that typically would not be available at a private home. Our previously silent partner, our son, is now growing up and has helped us realize new ways of involving and welcoming children in the Mais Oui vacation experience. One of our core values is to enhance the lives of the Jamaican people. One way we do that is through our commitment to our staff. We have about 12 people, some full-time, some part-time, who work with us as a team, to make the Mais Oui experience a reality. We work very hard to have guests stay with us so that we can, in turn, afford to keep our staff employed thereby contributing positively to their lives and the local community.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica:
We're not on the water, but are instead 'ocean view' because the Jamaican experience isn't only about the beach. That said, we are a mere 2-3 minute walk from the beach for those who need to be beach-adjacent. Jamaica is so much more than "sun, sea, and sand" or "rum, rasta, and reggae". Rather, it's also about the food and the people which also includes their culture and history. Mais Oui is designed to introduce visitors to the island with a taste of the "true Jamaica", in style and comfort. 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 commitment to a 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. We are not about flashy photos just to entice travelers and maximize profits. We enjoy entertaining strangers because we "could be entertaining angels unawares". We like to offer as many amenities as we can so 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. Its people are vibrant and colorful. Come and experience Jamaica at Mais Oui Tennis and Spa Villa! Our guests say it best: Dear Mais Oui, Thank you so much for the great stay. We had the best week ever. The food was amazing, especially the soups and fresh seafood! Thank you to all the staff here. Dave and Leo were great too. You can really see they care about making guests feel welcome. They went above and beyond staying up late every night to make sure we all made it to bed. The outdoor movie theatre was awesome for a mellow night in. The location is great for quick day trips and the massages were amazing. We truly can’t thank you enough for the memories that we made this week. We will definitely be letting everyone know what a great place Mais Oui is. Jesse. Wrightstown, WI
