Such a relaxing location!

5 of 5
This apartment is a real home from home. My partner and I stayed there for two weeks and were sorry to leave. Booking was simple and the owner, Dulcia, very responsive to emails and super helpful. Key was ready for us on arrival, alongside useful information to help us during the stay; air conditioning was on which we were grateful for. The provision of beach towels was really helpful! Charmaine, who cleaned etc for us every day was fantastic, and well deserved of a tip at the end. Towels were changed daily and everything was kept very fresh! Nice shower (water quick to heat up), good kitchen with all the equipment (oven, hob, coffee machine, toaster, microwave, fridge/freezer) you need. Lounge was comfortable and there were many TV channels (if you wanted something to watch); news (local/other), documentaries.children's TV and movies.We had a few issues with the WIFI, but Dulcia was quick to try and resolve. The apartment does pick up the WIFI from reception (we discovered) so it wasn't much of an issue. Great balcony which we had breakfast on every morning. Bed was huge and comfortable. We found with the aircon and fan it was just right temp for sleeping. Lots of cupboard/drawer space was helpful. The extras...e.g. safe, hairdryer, clothes airer, iron+board were much appreciated. Clearly much thought has gone into this unit! Pool was well looked after and great for a swim, hardly busy when we were there. The dedictaed loungers for the aprtment were much used but there were others available. We swam in the beach 'pool' every day...the home of quite a few fish and an eel as we discovered while snorkelling. I would recommend bringing beach/wet suit shoes, as there are a few rocks but also these are needed for other excurions such as Dunns River Falls and the Blue Hole. My other half swam out of the beach pool on the calmer days; not to be recommended when the sea is rough as the 'gap' is guarded by rocks. Security at this complex 24hr and gates are closed overnight, allowing pedestrian access. We ate at Glenn's across the road for both breakfast and dinner, highly recommend this very reasonable and very friendly establishment (they do take away which we had following our arrival early evening). Also had some great jerk chicken at the Jerk Centre just up the road. We used route taxis to go into town, and would recommend. Dulcia even sent us Easter bread, cheese and mangoes as a gift as we were there then! Perfect host with a lovely place! THANKS

Stunning in every aspect

The listing for Afibaview was/is totally accurate but would like to add that the pictures does not do the villa its Full & True justice… The scenery is wonderful whether on the cliff top balcony accessed through the living room & master bedroom. Or from the private decking area reached by steps down the cliff face… Magnifique The Villa was very clean and modern at that. It felt like a home from home with all its creature comforts i.e. strong wifi signal, air conditioning great bar & kitchen area. It even has internal mesh doors so no unwanted mosquito bites in the middle of the night. Not forgetting the wonderful sea breeze.. The manager Sade, was very informative, knowledgable & professional who answered all our questions and even sorted out a personal taxi service for our party. Yet upmost privacy was given. The pool area was fantastic very clean and at only 5ft at the deep end is very safe. Not forgetting the chef Godfrey, what a delightful cheery person. He definitely cooks up a storm. His food is fantastic, very colourful and tastes better than it looks… Unbelievable!! Thumbs up to him. Getting into town takes minutes courtesy of the driver. A fantastic beach is only a few minutes down the road & the nightlife is fantastic. I have already recommended this villa to friends and relatives. Once again a big thank you to the hostess for making our stay so memorable. We will DEFINITELY be returning… sooner than later.
