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.

Owner's Response: Thanks to you all! You and your lovely children are a joy to have again and again. Our staff truly looks forward each year to your visit and your kindness and generosity to the SOS children's village is sincerely appreciated. We will never tire of welcoming you all to your home away from home!

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.

Relaxing Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated birthdays on a girl's trip to Jamaica. The house was beautiful and comfortable. The staff was outstanding. Colroy and Arlene make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The food was outstanding that Arlene prepared. Our driver Jay made our trip. His personality is perfect for his job. He was professional but also had a great sense of humor and had us laughing on each excursion. GREAT trip and would go back.

Amazing trip!

  • 5 of 5

Can’t begin to explain how beautiful the house is and THE STAFF! J, the driver with “Raymond tours” was so fun, Colroy, Fiona, Robert and Arlene were fantastic. Try not to miss a meal at the house....Arlene is always serving up something delicious. Robert always has the beach perfectly manicured and Colroy has hot coffee waiting on the patio every morning! Very relaxing with the ability to go at your own pace....leave if you want to. If not, hang by the pool, the beautiful beach or the cabana. The owners, Stuart and Nicola, stopped by to say hello and visit....the nicest people you will ever meet. Very genuine and sweet. We are already talking about returning again with our kids to enjoy this beautiful scenery. Lastly, we did travel during the state of emergency and we could not feel more safe. Lots of military personnel on the road and the security at the villa is great. All throughout the day, we had the doors and windows open and our safety was never a concern once we saw our surroundings. 5+ stars for this place....I will definitely be returning soon.

Amazing place that you will fall in love with!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is amazing. Gorgeous views and is very well kept. Stuart/Nicola (owners) are so easy to work with and are accommodating. I would trust working with them anytime as they seem like really good people and the staff seems to really like them as well and that says a lot for villa owners. The staff is amazing. Colroy (head of house) makes you feel like you are a king for a week. You just have to make sure you are comfortable with telling him what you like. He's the type of person that loves to serve so help him with knowing what he can do to make you happy. Arlene is an amazing cook. Best dinners were Barbeque, Steak and Lobster, Curry and Jerk Chicken. Lunches Tacos, Fajitas, and grilled chicken salad were great. For breakfast, the banana pancakes and eggs were delicious. The house cleaner Fiona is a sweetheart and even helped us with the kids a little. The place was always clean and she was always so friendly. Robert the landscaper keeps the place nice. He even saved us when the wind died down and we were out on the Hobiecat Sailboat (this is a nice perk that the villa didn’t charge extra for). We didn’t even want to leave the place, but we did book a Dreamers Catamaran which was great. If you need rides Colroy will set you up with Ray who is a private driver. My guess is it’s a little more expensive than a taxi, but it’s worth it. Ray looks out for you and will give you tips about enjoying Jamaica. I trust him where other drivers you don’t know how safe or trustworthy they are.

I’ve stayed all over the Caribbean and this is as good as you get. I honestly don’t know what else you need. Highly recommend.

Just so you know I’m a real reviewer and not just a cheerleader…..the only feedback for my favorite people in Jamaica is the pool is a little chilly. If you can do anything to make that a tad warmer I might never leave there next time…maybe that’s why you don’t do it because I might stay too long 

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 .
