Guestbook comments from the owner

Oh my goodness!!! This was our second trip to A Beach Villa...I thought is was great the first time, however, I have to say that our return visit was fabulous. We came back with the couple that we travelled with on the first trip and we brought two additional couples with us. It is so hard to explain how wonderful it is until you experience it, but I will try! First of all, the villa is simply beautiful and has been maintained exceptionally well. We visited in 2009 and were just there, April 2012.



The property is just perfect. The addition of the outside bar and the cabana on the beach were perfect ammenities to add. As well there has been a face-lift of the furniture coverings on the outside porch as well as the bedrooms...at least the master bedroom, as that is where my husband and I slept. Fresh flowers throughout the villa were a special touch too!!



Aside from the material aspect of the villa, the staff at A Beach Villa are wonderful! We were lucky enough to have returned to Nicoy...what a fabulous chef. One wouldn't want to dine elsewhere after experiencing his cooking!! Fiona...she takes such good care of us!! And Andrew...keeps things looking great and always has a smile on his face!! We missed Verna, however, we were very lucky to have met and made friends Colroy!! What a great guy...he made our stay exceptional!! We came and spent a very relaxing five days at the villa and didn't have a worry in the world...very hard to go back home!!



Have to say....we looked forward to coming back to the villa, but we missed Ray Copeland our driver terribly!!! Raymond sealed the deal on the whole villa/driver package the first time we came....we had to do a repeat when we came back and we were definitely not dissappointed in his entertainment or the hospitality of the staff at the villa. If one comes to Jamaica I would so recommend A Beach Villa with Ray Copeland for a driver!! Thank you so much for providing us with a superb vacation!! Not a matter of if we'll be back...just when .

Another Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

At this point, I'm honestly not sure what I can write that I have not previously written since this was our 5th stay at this amazing home. We simply love it here, and call it our home away from home.

The staff, including Arlene, the newest addition and an inspired and eager to please chef, are the warmest and most accommodating individuals; I can't write their praises enough. They are wonderful to us, and they are wonderful to our children (2 families, kids ages 10-14). Not a need goes unnoticed or a request goes unfulfilled. It's a dream staying at this villa because of the staff. We adore them.

The home is lovely and open. The owners make a point of keeping the house fresh - every year there is a new piece of furniture, new decor, and/or new cushions and linens. It's a nice touch and reflective of how incredibly thoughtful the owners are. The owners generously coordinated a lovely surprise for us one day; we were most appreciative.

The rooms are very comfortable (the furniture in the lower bedroom was new this year and the master bedroom seemed to have a new mattress) and as pictured.

We make full use of the open spaces; you can easily find a quiet nook to relax when they aren't: playing tennis (a huge shout out to the tennis pro, Franco, who is awesome and not to be overlooked; he's a wonderful instructor and a terrific person), splashing in the pool, tossing a football on the beach, kayaking, sailing or SUP, working out in the community gym (it's a bit tired and basic, but has the free weights you need to get the job done), making friends with local children, drinking wine with the neighbors, napping in the cabana, or doing yoga on the dock. Clearly, we did all of this and more.

The community, as suggested above, has two tennis courts and a gym. It also has a soccer pitch, new security (there is one gate in and one gate out; it is a very safe community - so much so that I created a scavenger hunt for the kids all over the community and set them loose, without a worry in my mind), and a community pool (which, admittedly, we didn't use).

Things to know:

- Don't rent a car. Hire Ray (get his # from the owners) for your stay.

- Hard Rock took over Seawinds Beach Club. Good news - it's totally revamped. Bad news - it's totally overpriced. Eat beforehand and go to enjoy the beach and a drink.

- Consider bringing items to donate to the local SOS Children's Village.

- Don't hesitate to stay at this villa.

We will never tire of welcoming you all to your home away from home!

Terrific family holiday March 2009

  • 5 of 5

Afimi is truly a luxury villa finished to very high standards. The villa, grounds and beach are very clean and well-maintained by the excellent staff. We visited Doctor's Cave Beach on a quiet day - our driver (Raymond - excellent!) recommended a day that a cruise ship isn't in port. We also bought a day pass to the Hilton at Rose Hall to use their water park and all-inclusive facilities. The kids enjoyed the waterpark but it is expensive ($65US per adult and $45US for children) for what you get.

The food is fresh and well-prepared by the cook. We had the opportunity to shop with the butler at local markets and grocery stores. The highlight of our trip was the farewell bbq on the beach - complete with fire pit, torches and a massive bbq buffet.

The master bedroom is outstanding - beautiful deck overlooking the bay, and a massive ensuite and walk-in closet. The kids loved the flat screen TV above the bath!

We enjoyed the community pool, playground and tennis courts - all just a 2 minute walk from the villa.

The layout is perfect if you are travelling with children (we had children ages 2,3,4,5 and 8 with us). We were able to sit inside or outside and see the kids at all times whether they were playing on the beach, in the pool or on the lawn. We ate most meals poolside on the beautiful dining table. The view is breathtaking!

I would highly recommend this villa - it was a very memorable holiday.

Jamaican Dream

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at this beautiful villa was wonderful from the moment we walked through the front door. Breathtaking views, beautifully decorated rooms and an attentive staff are just a few reasons to stay here. If good food is important then you will be greatly rewarded with each and every meal. This is a wonderful place for a group of friends to have a great time together as well as family gatherings or a romantic get away. It was obvious to us there had been a great deal of attention taken to assure our stay was the best possible experience. Wow, wow, wow, we had a great time and just didn't want to go home!

Be still my heart, simply breathtakingly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Traveling with a group of 8 seasoned travelers and everyone was blown away. The facility was over the top with every decorative touch giving you the sense of clean and welcome. The attentive staff knew your every wish before you did. Coffee served with a smile from Conroy the moment you wake up to the breathtaking view. Chef Arlene spent her days preparing the most authentic Jamaican dishes much to all our delight. Not a meal out of place. We are all wondering what to do without them when we return home. The owners of this villa have not missed a step, and you can see the pride of ownership in Afimi. Hang on, because we will return soon.

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Afimi. The beautiful home and wonderful staff keep us coming back. We missed last year due to the canadian dollar being so low, but at the end of the summer we regretted not going and quickly booked to return this summer. We just returned from an amazing 12 day vacation. Once again we were met by Ray (Rays tours) at the airport and were greeted with hugs. We hired Ray both both previous visits and this summer to drive us around. Ray is a fun, friendly guy. He knows everyone and everywhere to go. Ray always takes us to the best places. Returning to Afimi this summer was like coming home. Upon arrival we hugged the staff and caught up with them. Afimi is a place of total relaxation. The beauty, and privacy of this home lets you unwind and forget reality. Colroy, Fiona, Arlene and Robert take such good care of us. My daughter loves Colroys smoothies and he is discreetly around to tend to our needs. The staff are sweet, lovely people. Fiona is extremely helpful and keeps the house spotless. Arlenes cooking could rival any 5 star restaurant and the presentation is beautiful. We spend several days just enjoying the home. The pool and private beach and kayaks are enough to fill a day. We also went to Negril, the Grotto caves, went on a ATV tour and rented a private boat for a day. (Ask Ray about these trips). There is so much to so in the area. We love coming to Montego Bay and Afimi and will continue to return for many more years.

Cannot be beat! This rental will exceed every expectation you have!

  • 5 of 5

As a group of 4 couples I can comfortably speak for all of us when I say WOW! Our group stayed for 7 days. From the moment we entered the home to the day we left our experience was absolutely fantastic. Colroy the butler and our host for the week was kind and generous and nothing but professional. Our coffee was ready every morning prior to us even waking up, breakfast, lunch and dinner served each day as we requested it and we didn't lift a finger. The chef Arlene is crazy talented. We gave Arlene carte blanche to makes for us whatever she wanted and WOW is all I can say. The food was absolutely beyond every expectation we could have imagined. Fresh red snapper, coconut curried crab, salt cod and ackee, oxtail, jerk chicken, ribs....the list goes on an on! As an added bonus Arlene stayed late one night and taught us the Jamaican way of doing dominoes! Our drivers Craig and Ray (we spent most of our week with Craig who works for Ray) were amazing. We would highly recommend booking them for the week and having them available to you. It is worth it! The gardener Robert is lovely and had advice about where to snorkle close to home. Fiona our house cleaner was absolutely lovely, the only thing better than her cleaning was her beautiful singing voice that could be heard throughout the home while she was hard at work. She even joined us to sing happy birthday to my husband on our last night there. To sum it all up you will not be disappointed if you choose to rent this home! The staff is amazing, the house is beautiful and the location is perfect, absolute paradise! Thank you Colry, Arlene, Craig, Robert, Fiona, and Ray we had an absolute blast and look forward to the next time we can return!
