Overview

Discovery Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 6.5 Bathrooms, 8 Sleeps

Located in the historic Discovery Bay where Columbus is said to have first landed on the sunny shores of Jamaica, Makana is a waterfront villa sure to impress. The private white sand beach, just steps from the main house, is only the beginning. Whether you are lounging in the shade of the hammock located at the seaside gazebo, enjoying a game of tennis on the private night lit tennis court or breathing in all the beauty from the crystal clear infinity swimming pool, Makana will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

The villa also features a well-equipped air conditioned gym and an outdoor shower and spa. Complimentary sea kayaks and snorkeling equipment are also provided for your enjoyment. A home entertainment system, Wi-Fi access and an office with a computer are also included. A full staff will also be present to cater to your needs. Feel free to ask your chef about some of the local delicacies that you can sample in either the comfort of the formal dining area or alfresco while you take in the lovely sea breeze.

Makana is an airy and open villa with high vaulted ceilings and warm wooden accents. The covered terrace with cozy, stylish seating makes a great place to sip on a freshly made drink from the adjacent full service wet bar. The elegant style considerations perfectly frame the views of the ocean and mountain range beyond.

The six stately bedrooms at Makana accommodate up to twelve guests. All bedrooms include en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, flat screen TVs and access to private balconies and verandahs. The dark wooden bed frames and posts add warmth and charm, while the choice linens ensure a good nights rest with nothing but the sound of ocean waves as your soundtrack.

Nearby attractions include meeting the friendly porpoises at Dolphin Cove or taking an excursion to the magical Green Grotto Caves. You could also travel back in time through a visit to Columbus Park where many artifacts from the Spanish colonial era are on display. Whether you take a boat tour or just want to idle at home, Makana is fully equipped to make your stay in Jamaica most memorable.

Best family vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

Villa was immaculate, staff were brilliant and the weather obliged. We have done 5 Villa vacations so far (4 in Jamaica) and this has been the best by far. Some of it is down to price (more expensive), but I think it is more than that, and both the villa and staff are truly exceptional.
