AFIMI beach house is a beachfront villa in the Lagoons, an upscale gated community in Montego Bay. This spectacular villa with it's own private white sand beach and infinity edge swimming pool is only a 10 minute drive from the Airport. The community sits on a thin peninsula surrounded by the ocean on both sides and has 24 hour security, 2 tennis courts with tennis pro, large main pool and gym.

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 .

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.

Beautiful Villa...Great Location...First Class Service!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at Afimi with our two kids (9, 6) and good friends with their kids (13,9). Where to begin...Quite simply everything was perfect! The property is better than advertised. The bedrooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated. The TV room is great for all, especially in the evenings. The outdoor living area is absolutely the best!! What I wouldn't do to be laying on the outside bed right now. We loved the special touches...coffee waiting for you outside, no matter how early you get up. The turn down service in the evenings was so nice and the perfect end to every day. The music system inside & outside of the property is great. I could go on and on about the property. All that said, the staff made our time in Jamaica ever memorable. Colroy, Nicoy, Fiona, Robert and Devon (Driver From Ray's Tours) are all so great at what they do and wonderfully authentic people as well. Every meal was so delicious. Nicoy is an excellent & humble chef that will cater to your every request! The same applies to the entire staff. You will love having Colroy (Conroy) around. He does it all so well. Our last night at Afimi the staff planned a beach barbecue and we invited them, including Devon and Ray from Ray's Tours to join our celebration. I hope they had as much fun as we did. A truly memorable night and an extremely relaxing vacation. We enjoyed and recommend tubing the Rio Bueno River, Doctor's Cave Beach, Sea Winds Beach (Part of the Villa package - AWESOME!) & Rick's Café in Negril to name a few. A driver for the week is a must and Ray's Tours is the best...Get Devon if you can. Devon is smart, funny and will take great care. He has a "weakness for sweetness"...Trust the reviews and book Afimi. You won't regret it.

Much respect Colroy, Nicoy, Fiona, Robert, Devon & Ray!

The prefect getaway ... ultimate relaxation in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a blissful week at this property in August 2016. The accommodation itself is even better than in the photos - what they cannot convey is the lapping of the water against the beach and the cool breeze that floats in as you are lying on the outside bed! Every last finishing touch has been thought of, from on-tap music in any room (including the beach if you want it!), to atmospheric lighting, chairs and recliners to suit every mood and a book collection to suit all sorts of readers!

The staff were on the doorstep to greet us when we arrived and continued to be diligent and provide the best service possible throughout the week. Nicoy the chef provided the most incredible selection of local and international food and my kids tasted and loved all the delights he served up.

The kids also enjoyed the larger pool within The Lagoons, as well as the evening game of footie with other kids. Everyone was very friendly and there was a nice mix of local and visiting children.

Overall a perfect holiday - this villa would be perfect for all ages and situations. Have fun!

Don't have any doubts...just go!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting outside of the US and renting a home with service staff. It will be tough to do it any other way. The best way to describe the week is a) we made new great friends with the staff and b) we have never had a more relaxing vacation. Two families with 4 total kids (ages 6, 8, 9, 13) and everyone had a blast. Colroy is a great, respectful man who takes tremendous pride in his role and ensures each guest has the experience they deserve. Nicoy can read the guests very well and cooks up fantastic meals morning, noon and night. He's very modest but we made him come out and receive standing ovations after some of his meals Unreal! No reason to eat anywhere else. Fiona is a gem who is kind hearted and quiet ensuring she does her job without interfering with your time in/around the house. Robert was so friendly and so kind to the kids. Always kept the place spotless outside and was so very helpful.

We enlisted Ray's tours for our transportation. This is an absolute must! Devon is a new friend! Friendly, kind, smart and respectful. He knew exactly where to steer us to that our whole family would enjoy. Ray runs a great service and he is hands on and provided us much needed guidance.

It was tremendously sad when we left. Leaving our new friends and the relaxation of this beautiful house was tough for all 8 of us. You truly get out of this experience what you put into it. We chose to make new friends and have a blast hanging out a lot at the house. We went to a few beaches which were all fantastic but our favorite time was spent at the house. The neighborhood is gated, always safe and easy to run/exercise in.

The house itself is perfect. You basically use the outside patio and seating for everything. The TV room is wonderful for the kids at night. Using the Kayaks daily was fun for the adults. The kids enjoyed the neat types of marine life around the dock. Anyone thinking about going, should stop thinking right now and just book. You won't regret it.

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.
