About Oliver

The Maloney and Albright Families have maintained and enjoyed Skylark Villa with their families and valued guests since the late sixties.

Oliver purchased this Villa in 1968

Why Oliver chose Saint James Parish

Our wonderful staff makes all our guests feel at their own home away from home. Our new pool provides a new level of luxury that features hot tub, sun shelf and infinity edge to soak up our Caribbean water views.

                                                                          9 of my family members came to Jamaica to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We had 6 adults and 3 kids. The accommodations could not have been better. I'm a picky traveler and I really don't have anything that I would have changed. We enjoyed ourselves so much at the house that I only left twice in 7 days and that was to go to the beach. The staff is sooooo incredible. When we arrived Howard served up amazing rum punch and a smoothie for our son. Sonia cooked fantastic local dishes, but will work with you on whatever you want. The first day she already had some food in the house and then day 2 a few people went with her to the grocery store to stock up for the whole week. We spent one afternoon at the very lovely Half Moon Bay resort and another at the beach club. We hired Mr. Johnson for the week to drive us around since we had so many people. He took all the boys to Dunn's River Falls one morning and was terrific. The pool has been recently redone and is as beautiful as the pictures. There are 3 Bedrooms with king beds and one with 2 queens. Even though they aren't all shown in the pictures, each is equally beautiful. And all the bathrooms are well appointed. Karen - the housekeeper - will do your laundry every day and have it folded on your bed by the afternoon. All the staff had an amazing talent of keeping things running smoothly and clean, but never being in your way or intrusive. They were truly lovely. I hope to come back to this amazing spot soon.

                                                                          Gaurav S.

                                                                          I'm always worried that the pictures posted make the place look even better than it actually is. This is not the case with Skylark! The villa and the views are just like the pictures. Just a short ride from the airport and all the resorts makes it an ideal location. The staff was phenomenal as they catered to our needs. Breakfast and dinner were provided when we requested and felt as if we were fine dining. The rooms were always cleaned and set to the ideal temperature depending on the time of day. Our questions were answered immediately. There were times we decided to just hang in the villa rather than go explore the rest of the island. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway!

The staff (Howard, Snoja, Karon) couldn't have been better, they went above and beyond our expectations. Our driver Mr. Johnson (Johno) took really good care of us gave us, always showing up on time and giving us tips on what to and not do in the island, we felt really safe with him as our driver. Any excursion we wanted to do he knew exactly where to go. I would suggest having Mr. Johnson drive you around, as we noticed that drivers in Jamaica can be really hectic to say the least. As for the house the pictures could not do it justice, it is a beautiful place to stay. There is nothing bad that I could say about my stay at Skylark, my family and I will definitely make a return visit.

It's clean, the pool is great and there is an AC in each bedroom that worked well. Ms Sonia is the cook and her food is delicious. Some things to note, the bedrooms are separate from the main house (i.e. Kitchen, living room), it's in a gated community so you need to use remote to get in and out. Overall a good stay.
