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.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
WE LOVED IT!!
So warm and inviting! Yasmin and Elaine were the best! Our pampering began as we walked into "Oh, Boy", Jerk Chicken beans and rice and a lighted pool were all perfect for our party of 6 . Lovely home that truly felt like home. Awesome views of the beach and the morning fishermen. Safe, quiet and peaceful with little Friday night Karaoke on the beach. We all are looking forward to coming back individually with our families.
We were 4 couples, and enjoyed every minute, from swimming in the beautiful calm clear ocean at 6:30 each morning,, exploring Jamaica to the delicious meals Yasmin and Elaine prepared for us, we will certainly return for a second vacation.
Thanks for your wonderful review. Angella told me you guys were the best guests we have had in a very long time. Thank you so much and I am happy you enjoyed yourselves. Thank you also for letting me know about the air conditioning remotes.
Wonderful week at Oh Boy Villa
5 girlfriends and I spent a wonderful week at Oh Boy Villa. Yazmin and Elaine spoiled us with delicious, authentic Jamaican food (jerk chicken, plantains, ackee and saltfish, callaloo) We never ate at a restaurant! We felt safe and comfortable at the villa. Enjoyed the pool and the ocean and the nightlife activities on the property. Since the villa is situated between Ocho Rios and Montego Bay we were able to enjoy activities in both areas. The concierge (Angella) responded to our every need. Dennis (the Owner) is super responsive and answered all my questions. We will definitely return!
Thank you so much Taisha. I hope you come back and visit us in the near future.
Oh Boy! what a birthday trip
This vacation was to celebrate my 40th birthday. I'm a born Jamaican, city girl and have never stayed in this area. But let me say this I had no complaints....It was just what I needed and what my guests needed (all adults). From the airport pickup that was waiting on us even though we took a bit longer than I wanted to exit the airport. To stopping for the first beef patty and Red Stripe on the drive to Oh Boy. To Angella calling the driver to make sure we were alright since again our exit from the airport was a process since other flights landed simultaneously and things got a little crowded.
Upon arrival to the entrance to Silver Sands and walking into the house to finding Ms. Yasmin cooking away at our welcome meal we felt right at home. The house was perfect with the private pool that we used mornings and evenings. To the gorgeous beach steps away (we had many laughs walking up and down the steps to the beach). We ate like royalty. The menu I requested was enhanced by Ms. Yasmin's attention to detail. We went out each day after breakfast and came home in the night and the table was set and everything wrapped up waiting for us to devour. The last morning we requested to pack food for our flight and in a snap travel containers were delivered and packed with all the food we needed to send us on our way. The experience at Oh Boy was top notch. We wanted for nothing and didn’t have to lift a finger. We have memories to last a lifetime.
Great place,great staff
Before arrival I was impressed with followup from owner on questions and the concierge Angela for requests for our stay. Angela even paid us a visit with community info, services we may need and local folklore. The staff Elaine and Yasmin were attentive without being intrusive - going do far as surprising us by baking a birthday cake. The community has Security at gate, clean beach offering privacy and facilities for food and drinks and functions. The pool was a treat !
We were really appreciative of our drivers Billy and Wayne who assisted in suggestions, were friendly and prompt. Being from Atlanta we were thrilled by fresh vegetables at our door, fisherman offer to go out to fish or snorkel and shopping and delivers at Hillside grocer.
Will recommend this home and it made our stay memorable.
Thank you so much for the nice review. I really appreciate it and hope you come back to visit again soon.
Wish I had more time...
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.
Thank you Cilicia. It was our pleasure to have you. Our staff reports that you were wonderful guests.
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.
