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.

What a Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The words my family used to describe this house and and the week we spent in Jamaica were, WOW! This is AWESOME! Great Food! So polite and attentive... What was the reason for all of this praise?

From the moment we arrived at the house and the staff came out to welcome us, invite us in and show us around the house, we knew we were going to love this vacation. Conroy, made sure everything was perfect during the entire vacation. From serving the meals and drinks to recommending activities, he was instrumental in helping us make lasting memories. Arlene, the cook, was unbelievable. We wanted to enjoy Jamaican food during the visit and she provided a great list of recommendations. When we were selecting the meals for the week, after about 1 minute, my son said "Dad, let's just go with whatever she recommends." We ate every breakfast and dinner and about half of the lunches at the house. I highly recommend eating at the house, she is that good. We had oxtail, jerk pork and chicken, curried goat and chicken, lobster and lobster bisque and a whole lot more and were always thoroughly impressed. Fiona, the maid, was wonderful. She kept the house very clean and did a great job with the bedrooms and the laundry. One of the best things was when she did all of the laundry the day before we left to make sure we would not have do any laundry when we got home. Robert, the gardener, kept the gardens and the beach immaculate. His attention to detail made a beautiful background for many pictures. Craig, the driver, yes I recommend the driver, was informative, funny and provided safe passage to various locations. This team was also very personable. They were very interesting to talk to and provided us a glimpse into Jamaican life.

The activities -We were about 1.5 hrs from Negril to the west and Ocho Rios to the east. We did cliff jumps at Rick's Cafe in Negril, climbed Dunn's River Falls, went to Blue Hole, the Jamaican bobsled ride, zip-lining, horseback riding in the ocean and Bioluminescent Bay

The house - As we walked through the front door, the open design of the main floor and its almost seemless blending onto the covered patio was breathtaking. My wife and I, along with our 3 children ages 25-15 and their guests, walked out onto the covered patio and and were mesmerized by the view (pool, beach, cabana and dock.) We came back in to pick our bedrooms. Every bedroom was beautiful! 2 days we decided to stay in and RELAX.

We had a great time!

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.
