About Anne

I was born in Jamaica but moved away at a young age. I returned with my husband 15 years ago and we settled into Montego Bay to raise our family. We have explored most of what this island has to offer and look forward to sharing our knowledge to help make your vacation in Jamaica unforgettable.

Anne purchased this villa in 2008

Why Anne chose Montego Bay

There is nowhere else in Montego Bay that combines breathtaking views and beach front living in a secure, safe environment. It's the main reason we chose The Lagoons. The villa was custom designed by a well known local architect. Our main goal was to create an open, airy space that maximized the breath taking views of the ocean. The Caribbean sea can be viewed from virtually every room in the house.

What makes this villa unique

Fully staffed villa (included in rental rate) with an exceptional chef (Miss Mazie) who not only cooks local cuisine but a wide variety of international dishes, all at no additional cost. Our chef is more than happy to help you plan and make 3 meals a day. Rochester, our certified butler, is also a master mixologist who can create any cocktail you may desire. "Rock" can also help you plan any excursion you may want during your stay.

Rental rate also includes pick up and drop off from the airport (up to 2 ways each trip) plus expedited service through customs and immigration. Someone will meet you shortly after deplaning so you can avoid the long lines. We offer (2) trips to the grocery store at no additional charge. We also provide unlimited free overseas calling.

Please note: Food and Drink are NOT included in rental rate.

Stop looking and start booking

  • 5 of 5

We are an extended family of 8 (6 adults, 2 kids aging 8-60yo) & we all can’t stop talking about the vacation of a lifetime!

There may be other options THAT look similar to starfish because they are in the same gated community but starfish is in a class of its own. The furnishings are upscale, the staff is warm, friendly & amazing Mazie made food that was truly amazing.

The attention to detail and pampering starts the moment you get off the airplane & sails through your entire vacation regardless if it’s a day by the pool or an excursion , everything is covered.

I’ve done high class cruising, fully staffed villas and all-inclusive resorts, so I feel I have a good base to judge our experience.

The Staff

Chef Mazie- a genuinely sweet, loving soul who's smile will warm your heart & who’s food will tantalize your taste buds. When the other reviewers say don’t bother going out for dinner, please believe them. My fav’s coconut curry pumpkin soup, salmon, escovitch fish, tenderloin, scallop potatoes, salsa and artichoke dip and her deliciously homemade salad dressing (bottle it baby, I’m ready to buy).

Butler Rochester - his fun-loving nature, gleaming smile , attention to details & his mixology skill bring the vacation to a whole new level. Plus he also rocks an apron like no man I have ever met! What time is it???

House keepers- silent and efficient, They did an excellent job keeping the home sparkling. The vacation wouldn’t have been the same without their tireless help.

The house/grounds

The outside entertainment area was the highlight for us with great seating area and a sound system that will blow your mind. We were struck most with the beautiful furnishings & the very comfortable beds. The beach is way bigger than I anticipated from the pictures & there was plenty of room for sandcastle building. Use the kayaks to go across the bay to the end of the rock point & snorkel there for free. Its not fabulous snorkeling but you’ll see lots of fish if you go to the resort side.

Final tips

Figure out the menu ahead of time, sit down with Mazie to finalize, have her pair up the sides to the mains ahead of time so you know what to expect from app’s to desert & bring a copy of your original list to the store

Spend at least ½-1 day away, experience some of Jamaica

Go to blue hole instead of dunns river (less crowded & more fun)

Rent the boat, we love marc and captain

Many may say it, but I mean it the Maurer’s will be back.

Best Family Vacation Yet!

  • 5 of 5

As a family that is spread throughout the country from Anchorage, Los Angeles, Dallas, and New York City, we value any opportunity we have to come together as one large group. Without a doubt, our time at Starfish was the highlight vacation for all of us. With ages varying between 2 years old and 66 years old, this place had everything we could ask for.

We arrived in Jamaica in three separate groups, yet were all greeted in the jet way and whisked through customs. Within 45 minutes of landing, we were sipping delicious rum punch made by Rochester.

Rochester aka Rock was really appreciated for his willingness to cater to whatever we wanted. He took all requests with a smile on his face and a positive attitude. During the trip Rochester was our chief mixologist. He never backed away from a challenge and even perfected a skinny, spicy, margarita that my sister in law declared the best she has ever had. Whether he was taking requests for individual drinks, making large batches of Jamaican Delight or Rum Punch, the beverages were spectacular. He even took the time to spoil my girls ages 2 and 6 with special fruit smoothies topped with whip cream that never failed to bring a smile to their face.

Miss Maize was a dream. I told my wife if she weren’t so pretty, I would seriously consider leaving her for Miss Maize’s cooking. With no exaggeration whatsoever, it was some of the best food we ever have had. Her soups were creative and fantastic. If you book, get a soup with every meal. You will not regret it. The main courses are spectacular and Maize will sit down with you to plan the menu and then accompany you shopping so all the proper ingredients are purchased. She has a positive and energetic demeanor and her efforts were evident in everything she did. Maize runs the household, and she does a fantastic job!

While spending time at Starfish, there is also a full time maid staff that takes care of everything behind the scenes. When the entire family sat down for breakfast, the staff was quick to attend to the rooms, make the beds, pick up any mess, and arrange things for you to perfection.

The highlight of the house has to be the outdoor living area. Our family congregated there throughout the day and evening and really enjoyed sitting in the warm weather, sipping cool drinks, and watching world cup soccer on the large screen TV. All of our meals were also taken outside and we loved it. My advice, book this house now.

If I could give Starfish Villa 10 stars, I would! We were a group of 10 women on our annual girls trip. We were in awe from the moment we arrived (we were greeted with delicious rum punch and cool lavender scented towels) to our tearful goodbyes (four of us cried when it was time to go). The accommodations are clean and comfortable and the views are amazing. The entire staff (Dwayne, Erica, Juliette) was so respectful, helpful, knowledgeable, and just overall good people. The true stars are Mazie and Roc. We LOVED them! Mazie is an exceptional cook! Every meal was delicious and prepared to perfection. We ate out a few times and we all couldn’t wait to get back home to Mazie’s cooking! They changed the table linens every meal, which was a very nice touch. She loved on us so much and has such a kind, quiet, gentle spirit. We started referring to her as Mama Mazie. Roc is awesome as well! He kept the drinks flowing and they were always strong and tasty. Roc is such a sweetheart and he was very protective of us during our stay. He was like a brother to all of us and made our time in Jamaica memorable and downright fun! Mazie and Roc made this house a home for us and it was like visiting family. You cannot go wrong with Starfish Villa. Hands down, the best girls trip we have ever gone on!! We cannot wait to return!!

Beautiful Villa+Amazing Staff= Perfect Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of five couples who were looking for a place to relax, decompress and have some fun, boy did we find all of that and more at Starfish Villa! From the moment we contacted Anne we knew this was a special place. Anne was so responsive to our many questions often getting back to us within an hour or two. When we arrived in Jamaica there was a gentleman waiting for us who expedited us through customs and immigration. Dwayne was waiting right outside the door to drive us to Starfish Villa. When we arrived at the Villa the staff of Miss Juliet, Erica, Mazie and Rochester (Rock) were waiting at the door to greet us with chilled hand towels and cold rum drinks!

What makes Starfish Villa so special isn’t the fact that the house is so beautiful (because it is BEAUTIFUL!!!) it’s Mazie, Rock, Miss Juliet and Erica. These four do everything in their power to make sure your stay is everything you dreamed it would be. Mazie’s food is outstanding!!!! We were so glad we listened to the other reviews and stayed in for dinner. Mazie cooks with love and it shows! Rock is a Rockstar who makes a mean cocktail, can set a table that would make Martha Stewart jealous and basically can make whatever you request happen. Miss Juliet and Erica are quiet and sweet in personality but these ladies never stop moving. The house was always clean and pristine!

We rented the boat one day and enjoyed the company of Captain Allen and his fishing guide Brunelle. He took the men out in the morning to go deep sea fishing and then we all went out later in th day to go snorkeling and watch the sun set. We caught a mahi mahi which Mazie then prepared into delectable fish sticks for our snorkeling trip!

On our last full day we took an excursion to the Blue Hole, it is a bit of a drive and the drive home took even longer due to hitting Friday evening rush hour traffic so my advice would be to go earlier in the day or not on a Friday. But it was a fun day never the less and it was made even better because Mazie and Rock joined us!!

The house was plenty big enough for everyone to have their own space but somehow by the end of the day we would all end up at the end of the dock sipping on one of Rock’s creations and watching the sun set.

When our co-workers ask if this vacation was everything we dreamed it would be the answer is absolutely YES!! It was an amazing vacation and although we were sad to leave, we made a few new friends for life!!!

I think your review perfectly captures what's special about Starfish and why it stands out from many other vacation homes. It truly is a home away from home.

Absolute magic

  • 5 of 5

It’s difficult to equate and give the reader this experience as I still cannot believe since returning that we had such a wonderful holiday. Compared to any other vacations this was absolutely amazing and Four seasons or Ritz could not even come close . From being whisked through the VIP arrival at the airport to the most amazing house and staff. The meals were gourmet- nothing gets my daughter out of bed so to see her leaping up for Ms Maise’s Pancakes and breakfast feast was awe inspiring. We had 5 mons with daughters on this trip and Rochester’s fresh fruit smoothies were the best. His personality kept the girls engaged and the boat trip was another highlight - captain Morgan brought us to the best spots. You can really tell these guys love their job and the respect and love we received was so genuine. I really miss Jamaica and cannot wait to return- we are already planning our next trip - my daughter is cleaning her room every day motivated for another visit to starfish- ms maise needs to write a cookbook or else come and visit us in Boston in the meantime! Thank you so much for your hospitality- Kathryn and Lauren

Beautiful Property - better than a 5-star hotel!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures look impressive, but in person it's even that much better! We visited recently on a mom/daughter trip (all girls ages 9-14) and couldn't have been more relaxed and happy. The food was incredible (Maize is a gourmet chef!). The service was top-notch (Rochester's drinks and personality made the trip!). The maintenance of the property was impeccable. We felt like anything we could possibly want or need was already anticipated before we even asked.

We went on a boat excursion to go snorkeling and sight-seeing which the kids are still talking about. The captain was amazing ~ in short, anyone we encountered that was associated with the starfish was inviting and professional.

From the minute we landed and were met by someone helping us through customs, until the time we left we had no care in the world!

Thank you so much for such great memories - we are already planning our return trip!
