The villa itself has four large bedrooms each with ocean views and en-suite bathrooms. Three of the bedrooms are upstairs while the fourth is downstairs. All upstairs bedrooms have Teak hardwood floors with split air-conditioning and HD LCD televisions. The villa is beautifully decorated with a mix of elegant new pieces, authentic Jamaican antiques and original artwork. All bathrooms, which are finished in natural stone, marble or granite, have walk in showers. Relax in the large master suite complete with a luxurious marble tiled bathroom with eight foot wide shower enclosure with skylight and spa-like soaking tub while watching your favorite movie on a wall mounted flat screen television. This suite opens unto a spacious upstairs patio where one can enjoy the breathtaking sunrise in the morning or have afternoon tea while viewing the birds of the Montego Bay Marine Park's lagoon with city lights as a backdrop. Experience the romantic Beach Grill night where we grill your favourite meal right on our beach while you dine by candlelight surrounded by tiki torches.

AFIMI, complete with an air-conditioned family room with BOSE surround sound and 65" SmartTV also has a restaurant equipped kitchen that produces exceptional meals. The villa rental includes a full complement of staff, your personal butler, a full time cook, housekeeper and gardener to attend to all your needs.

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.

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.

Best Family Vacation Yet!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family and I’s first time renting a villa for vacation, so we didn’t really know what to expect from Afimi Beach House and its staff. The beautiful pictures and rave reviews had our expectations set pretty high upon arrival, but let me just say that the house, staff, and island completely exceeded all of our expectations for the week!

The house is gorgeous and was large enough for 8 of us to have plenty of room to roam without ever feeling like we were on top of each other. The bedrooms/bathrooms were spacious (Master Bed/Bath WOW) and well equipped with everything you could ever need. We obviously spent a majority of our time outside swimming in the beautiful infinity pool, playing Spikeball on the perfectly manicured beach (Thanks Robert), and sailing/kayaking in the calm, warm waters of the lagoon.

As for the Staff, words can’t describe how wonderful Colroy, Arlene, Fiona, and Robert were the entire week! They took what would have been a truly great trip and made it an unforgettable one! It was a bit of an adjustment having someone wait on when you aren’t used to it, but boy did they spoil us. Colroy was the absolute best; whether it was always having a drink/snack ready for us, helping book excursions, serving all those delicious meals, or running to the store to pick up a couple more cases of Red Stripe. Arlene was a wizard in the kitchen whipping up amazing meal after amazing meal. Getting to experience the Jamaican culture through her food was one of our favorite parts of the vacation; Jerk Chicken, Johnny Cakes, Curried Goat, Oxtails, and Cod Cakes to name a few. Fiona and Robert also did a wonderful job keeping the house and property in tip top shape all while smiling ear to ear.

We spent around $40 a person a day for food and alcohol which I didn’t think was bad at all considering we ate like kings and drank a lot of Red Stripe/Rum Punch.

I really can’t say enough about how wonderful of a time our family had at Afimi and in Jamaica. If anyone is considering renting a villa vs an all-inclusive resort I would pick this house 100 times out of 100! I don’t know if I will ever be able to do an all-inclusive again after experiencing the luxury that was Afimi Beach House. Thank you Stuart, Nicola, and Staff for making our family vacation one that we will never forget!!

WOW!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! Absolutely beautiful down to the smallest details. The decor is wonderful. The best part, however, is the staff. Colroy, Arlene, Fiona and Robert are top notch!! We just loved all of them. Cannot say enough good things. They go above and beyond. They accommodate any of your needs and are so helpful and kind. We miss them already and will be back!

Also, our driver (Devon) was amazing. He was fun and so helpful with all of our needs as we were traveling with 2 two year olds. Just outstanding!!

We highly, highly recommend Afimi, the staff and driver.

Thank you so much everyone for making our trip one to remember forever!! ❤

Great Property, Excellent Staff, Nice Owners, Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Jamaica quite a bit and several other places in the Caribbean. This is one of the best places out there. Here are my notes to help you enjoy the stay more.

1. The staff is great (Colroy, Irene, Robert, and Fiona). Great people and very accommodating so make sure you make suggestions and give them an idea on what you want. There is never a reason to complain about anything because ultimately it will be your fault because they will do what you like most of the time :) Do everything you can to make things clear from the start (allergies, preferences, etc.)

2. The property is nicer than it is in the pictures. They've done some upgrades since the pics. For example, there are better chairs on the beach that are comfortable and some newer T.V's etc. They also have a hobiecat sailboat that you can take out that's pretty great. Just watch a couple youtube video's on sailing them and you should be ok or at least try to learn before you go out. The beach is better than most of the places we have stayed. A lot of room and perfect for kids. The beach was a game changer compared to most places we looked at in comparison. I'd recommend putting a couple of the loungers in the water and just relaxing in the shallow area.

3. They have a bunch of stuff like dart boards, a ping pong table, poker chips, etc so just ask for things like that and they can bring them out.

4. The last night is amazing. Great Beach Barbeque. The foods fantastic and it's just a great set up. Definitely make sure that you don't plan to eat out the last night. You won't find anything better than what they do the last night.

5. One of the worries for booking in Jamaica is it might not be safe in certain areas. That is not the case here. It's a nice part of town and it's gated. There's a police station really close as well and patrols in the water. We felt very safe here.

The only thing that I would say could have been better is the pool being a little too cold for our kids. Pool is kind of a big deal for us when you are in warm weather. I'm going to make some suggestions to the owners and they tend to be pretty great to communicate with so when I come back I hope this is less of a worry.

A picture perfect place to stay in Jamaica

  • 5 of 5

The house immediately wowed our group, pictures cannot do justice to how outstanding it is in person. The rooms all have high ceilings, the place is kept sparking clean but with little touches in the decor that keep it from feeling untouchable. The owners obviously have excellent taste in art, everyone in our group had a favorite piece, in particular the driftwood sculpture impressed us all. The private beach is pristine and more than big enough for sand castles for the kids and sunbathing for the adults. The view of the water and the mountains is jaw dropping, the water off the dock is clean and warm, we swam every day. Afimi is one of those rare finds that has both the little touches and the big ones. Little touches being ipads in all the bedrooms room, Sonos sound system, the canopied, soft bed down on the beach with curtains to keep the hot sun off or just when you want some privacy. The big touches... the amazing chef Arlene, who not only accommodated our rather particular bunch of eaters (2 gluten free, 1 vegetarian, 1 no fish, 2 picky kids) but somehow managed to wow everyone at all our meals. Also Conroy, who is less of a butler and more of a magician, somehow he always magically appears whenever we needed anything. The housekeeper Fiona and groundskeeper Robert were also absolute professionals and take such obvious joy and pride in their work, it shows in the beauty of this house. We've already booked again for next year, because after visiting Afimi house, we know nothing will ever compare.
