About the property

Four Bedroom Villa With Pool And Spectacular Views Of The Sea And Private Beach

Oh Boy Villa is a 4-bedroom, 3-bath private villa tucked away in Silver Sands, a private gated villa community built along one of Jamaica's most pristine white sand beaches. While only 45 minutes away from Montego Bay Airport, Oh Boy could not feel further away from the all-inclusive resorts and tourist traps. The cooking, cleaning, and pampering courtesy of Oh Boy Villa staff Elaine and Yasmin immediately make you feel like you are at home - only a home without chores, work, or responsibilities. Relaxation can be found in the private pool with a front-row sea view, or by taking the short 90-second walk down to the tranquil beach. There is a help desk, commissary, bar and grill, and small clubhouse located at the beach. Scroll to the left or right of the first picture above ( seems to vary by browser type) to see a short video of the villa and the Silver Sands community. Villa rents by the number of bedrooms used... up to eight people can be accommodated comfortably. We provide one airport free pickup and drop-off as a part of the rental for 6 nights or more.

About Dennis McCormick

In 1968, our father, an amateur pilot, was taking a "Caribbean island-hopping” trip with a good friend in a two-engine prop plane when he spotted Silver Sands from the air as they were circling the island. He had already developed a love affair with Jamaica and taken us on several family vacations, staying in nearby Montego Bay. But after seeing the beautiful crescent-shaped beach from the air, he did a bit of research and on our next vacation we spent a day at Silver Sands, and we all instantly felt like it was home. Almost immediately after, he bought a lot and constructed our villa, Oh Boy. Our first stay as a family in the house was over the Christmas holidays in 1968. Myself and my four siblings now own and enjoy the house.

Dennis McCormick purchased this villa in 1968

Why Dennis McCormick chose Duncans

Oh Boy is the perfect vacation rental for people desiring a relaxing and low key experience. It is a place to de-stress, read some good books, get some quality family/friendship time in, swim, relax on the beach, and eat wonderfully prepared meals on your own schedule. This is not an "all inclusive" resort offering constant entertainment, five star restaurants or nightlife on the premises. All of that is nearby if someone wanted the best of both worlds.

What makes this villa unique

The ability to set your own eating and relaxation schedule. Our home is a comfortable one with all of the usual amenities ( eg TV, free WIFI etc) but is available at an affordable price. Comparable villas in Jamaica typically rent for twice the price. We are as interested in building a book of loyal, repeat customers who will be good renters as we are in maximizing our rents.

Wish I had more time...

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at Oh Boy villa. The pictures do not do justice to reflect the beauty and the ideal location of the villa. The view was spectacular. The beach was perfect. The pool was just right and CLEAN. Everything was provided for our comfort and relaxation. My family insist on returning and staying for longer. Tell Miss Yasmin the banana bread and fritters were on-point, just wished we had more. Miss Elaine, your fried dumplings were the best.

Oh Boy! Home away from home-only better!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about the Oh Boy staff. Yazmine and Elaine go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and taken care of. The food was amazing and we most enjoyed our Falmouth shopping trip with Yazmine. The property owner was great about answering all of the 100 questions we had as well. ;)

The ladies keep the house very tidy and even did our laundry one day. What a nice surprise that was!

The house itself is very inviting and cozy. Perfect size for the 4 adults and 3 kids we took on our trip. It's Jamaica, so let's be realistic. It can be hot in the summertime, but the air conditioned bedrooms were more than sufficient.

Having the pool at the house was a welcome break from the sand and salt water. The view from the deck isn't so bad either! Lots of lush vegetation and beautiful flowers everywhere.

Over all, a 5 out of 5. If you want the resort experience, this is not for you. Silver Sands is very laid back and slow paced which was perfect for our bunch. Can't wait to come back!

A really great time!

  • 4 of 5

Excellent all round. We’ve been to Duncans three times though this was our first at Silver Sands and Oh Boy. Will definitely be back. Everything was great and the food was awesome. Kids loved the pool! Only small negative is that some of the beds are very firm and not very comfortable (for us at least).

Already looking forward to planning our next trip!

Map

Nearest Airport
20 Miles
Sangster International Airport, Montego Bay.
Car: not necessary

Our home in Silver Sands is ideally located mid way between Jamaica's two major tourist destination cities... Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. Consequently almost any activity you could want is either directly on premises ( swimming, snorkeling, tennis etc) or no more than a 35 minute drive. I highly recommend Dunns River Falls, Blue Hole ( both Ocho Rios), rafting on the Martha Brae River and Deep Sea Fishing. A car is not necessary as we have a local driver who can take you where you would like to go. If you do wish to rent a car all of the major car rental companies may be located at or very near the airport.
