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 .

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.

Outstanding Jamaican Vacation...

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do the property justice. The house is warm and inviting and totally allows for complete relaxation. The views are incredible!!! Raymond was an excellent tour guide, took us wherever we wanted to go and made sure we were taken care of. Fiona (housekeeper) took such pride in keeping our rooms comfortable and clean. Robert (landscaper) made sure the beach, pool and outdoor areas were clean and beautiful. Colroy (butler/bartender) and Nicoy (chef) were outstanding. Colroy exceeded our every expectation, provided world class service and treated us with style. He also makes a mean Rum Punch and Pina Colada, He always had the Red Stripe cold for us. Nicoy is an excellent chef. 3 meals a day were better than any 5 star restaurant in the world. He customized a menu for us taking our favorite dishes and using local Jamaican flair to add to each meal. We were completely satisfied and so full after every meal. The final night bar-b-q on the beach capped off a wonderful vacation experience. We hated to leave and are already planning our trip back for next year. Best family vacation ever!

Could not have been better

  • 5 of 5

We rented this amazing villa over spring break and it could not have been a more ideal setting. It is actually even better than the pictures on the website indicate. Because, what can't be seen in pictures is a level of comfort and the effort put forth by an unbelievably gracious staff. We were a party of seven including three generations.

I cannot say enough positive about the entire time.

I have rented a number of properties and, must admit, this was by far the best.

The villa was wonderful, the staff indescribably pleasant and efficient and everything was perfect.

I would certainly rent this property again and would recommend it to any group wanting to experience an extremely pleasant stay in Jamaica.

My family is already wanting to return for another stay.

The staff anticipated our every need and were not only accommodating but were some of the most pleasant people I've ever had the good fortune to interact with over the course of a week.

In conclusion, if you're traveling to Jamaica, you can not go wrong with this impeccable villa with it's exemplary staff.

Everything was absolutely wonderful and we could have had a better vacation.

The Best Family Vacation at Afimi!

  • 5 of 5

Well, it's been a few weeks that we have been home and we still can't stop talking about Afimi. We are a family of 4 with 2 teens and this was truly the best family vacation villa we have ever stayed in, and here is why:

1) Afimi is amazing! The villa is stunning and you really don't want to leave. It is beautifully furnished with perfect outdoor living spaces...morning Jamaican coffee on the veranda, delicious meals al fresco and afternoon card games in the cabana on the beach. The setting is serene, on a mangrove filled inlet off of Montego, with no touristy chaos to be found, no high rise hotels, no tourists or vendors on the beach, no jet skis or power boats speeding by, just you and the peaceful ocean breeze.

2) The STAFF! What a great group of people. We were greeted by such wonderful, smiling faces whose aim was to make us comfortable and happy. Colroy, our steadfast butler, who was at our service from coffee to pina coladas! Anything we wanted/needed/requested...Colroy was the man! Nicoy, our amazing chef who was always in the kitchen making us the most delicious meals. He was accommodating and so professional! Our favorite meal was set out on the beach with tiki torches glowing on the water. We stuffed ourselves on grilled chicken, ribs and the best mac-n-cheese ever! Fiona, our adorable housekeeper who managed to keep Afimi spotless and do laundry at a moment's notice. And, Robert, the groundskeeper who kept the beach so clean there was never a spot of seaweed to be found!

3) Afimi recommended a driver for our visit as we wanted to explore some adventurous spots and not worry about driving around the island, so a big shout out to Devon (and Ray) from Ray's Tours. We hit some pretty incredible spots (trying to keep it as non-touristy as possible) and they really gave us some great tips and drove us safely day and night.

All in all, this is a definite return visit for us, and we would highly recommend Afimi to anyone visiting Jamaica!

Wonderful Vacation At Amazing Villa Afimi

  • 5 of 5

Wow, from the moment we stepped into Afimi Villa, we were enchanted. We were two families with kids ranging from 14 - 4 and the villa accommodations were perfect...the master suite is to die for! The view of the inlet dotted with mangroves was postcard perfect. The bay is quiet and calm, and lends itself to kayaking, with kayaks provided by the villa. The Villa SONOS sound system is comprehensive and includes a vast array of music to accommodate anyone’s taste. The beach includes ample space for lounging, and star gazing at night.

The staff was so accommodating, and none of our needs were left unmet. Each day began with Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee brewed fresh, and hot tea. The staff was easily able to meet any of our meal requests, and served cocktails, snacks, and drinks on demand throughout the day. Dinner included many Jamaican delights, such as pumpkin soup, callaloo, escovitch fish, and American favorites as well. Our meals easily rivaled any local restaurant, and felt like home cooking all at once.

The houses in the villa complex are very private, but somewhat close. The very meticulously kept gardens are bordered by a privacy curtains of bamboo. The only complaint was the neighbors to the left, who consistently started cooking their meals, loudly and had a crying baby, once we were finished putting our children to bed. So we weren't able to enjoy the house as much as we would have liked at night. Nevertheless, Afimi Villa is a beautiful place, and a truly memorable experience. We hope to go back again and again! We are so thankful to the amazing staff: chef Nicoy, housekeeper Fiona, groundskeeper Robert, and with incredible butler Colroy at the helm.

Absolutely Amazing! Gorgeous Villa, Awesome Staff & Wonderful Vacation - Part 1

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a great family vacation and it was amazing! This home is absolutely stunning and from the moment we walked in the front door to the day we left, we couldn’t have asked for anything more.

As anyone can imagine, booking a house online can be a bit scary as you just never know what you are getting. Yes we saw wonderful pictures, yes we saw such rave reviews, but you just don’t know. What we found was exactly what was presented, and the house was even more beautiful in person, if that’s even possible. From the gorgeous rooms, to the beautiful artwork, to each room being able to program music and turn on lighting from their own ipad, to the fresh flowers. EVERY detail is just so amazing. While all the bedrooms were beautiful, there are no words to describe the master bedroom and master bath. This suite is truly “built for royalty” with the large and comfortable 4 poster bed – it has step stools on each side to get in. It is decorated and lighted so beautifully, and the view from the very large balcony that spans the top floor is just amazing. When you walk into the master bath, you see the long row of beautiful cabinetry, double sinks, make up vanity, and then a stunning HUGE walk in shower and separate claw foot tub, and a private bathroom with toilet and bidet. This master suite will take your breath away! The living areas are so comfortable and while we didn’t spend much time indoors, it is just stunning.

When you walk outside, the view is just gorgeous as the property has it’s own private beach and the gorgeous water is just steps away. There is a tiki bar, which was stocked all week with the beverages that we had requested. There is a dining room table on the patio that allowed us to enjoy 3 delicious meals a day outside. The endless pool is beautiful and at night is lit and you can control which color you’d like with the touch of a button. There are numerous lounges in different areas on the deck, by the pool, on the beach, on the dock, and a wonderful cabana on the beach that our family had to fight for to take a nap each day because it’s just so comfortable and peaceful by the water with the cool breeze blowing – to die for! Because of the size of the house and so many different areas to lounge in, this home is great for families, or multiple couples as you don’t feel that you’re too confined to a certain area.

The key to our wonderful trip was the staff – they are just amazing. (see part 2)
