It is a great swimming beach and deserted most of the time because there are no restaurants and bars tp attract the crowds. It is also situated so that it is protected from the occasional North swells and currents during High Season. 10 minutes away, by car, there are at least 4 other beaches to enjoy. ...moreless

                    My wife and I wanted to "live" on Tortola for a month in March so we looked for a place that was quiet, spacious, and well equipped to live in for awhile. We found all this and more at Little Mermaid. The unit is well laid out with a very open design. Inside Little Mermaid was very clean and had all of the amenities of home. A great porch area looks out over our favorite beach on Tortola, Long Bay beach. The beach is within easy walking distance of Little Mermaid and most of the time we had it to ourselves. We used the ATM located at the airport which was convenient. A grocery store about a mile or so away had all of the groceries that we needed. Trellis Bay is less than a mile away and is home to some good cafes, beach bars and ferry terminal for trips to Virgin Gorda. The owner, Jan, lives above Little Mermaid and was incredibly gracious and helpful as we found our way around. She takes very good care of the property and is attentive to her guests but was very respectful of our privacy. Jan has lived on Tortola for 40 years and is a great source of information for visitors. I highly recommend this property - clean, spacious, quiet, and very well located. Our month long stay seemed like it flew by. We're ready to go back!

                    Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway, adventure seekers.

                    Jan’s ‘Little Mermaid Cottage’ is THE place to stay for a tropical paradise vacation. We are a retired couple who stayed here for a week in January, 2014, and would come here again in a heartbeat. The property description is accurate on all points, and the photos give a true representation of the cottage…inside and out, it really is this beautiful!! It is very conveniently located: close to plenty of good restaurants, a well-stocked grocery store, ferry service to other islands, and barely 5 minutes from a nearly deserted, beautiful white sand beach (Long Beach), good for swimming and snorkeling. A bigger town is just 20-30 minutes away in Road Town, but once you get here, you probably won't want to go back there! The spacious cottage is nicely and comfortably furnished, with plenty of room to make yourself right at home. All equipment, appliances, etc, including wifi, worked well will no issues, and the entire cottage was very clean and comfy. The kitchen is large and very well equipped with everything you need to cook your own meals, (although with the good restaurants nearby, you may not want to cook every night!). The bed is quite comfortable, and the large bathroom is spotless. Maybe the best feature of this cottage is the patio/veranda, where you can enjoy the flowers and soak up the sun and tropical breezes day or night, and never be too hot or too cold. The views are spectacular. You can see a number of other islands, watch sailboats and yachts cruising through, and watch the small planes at the Beef Island Airport. (This is a small and relatively quiet airport, by the way, and we did not find it overly noisy or bothersome in any way; instead, we enjoyed watching the activity there.) You won’t find a friendlier or more helpful host than Jan. She’s lived here many years and knows everything there is worth knowing about the area and its people. We highly recommend this cottage; you won’t be disappointed. Jan has thought of everything.

                    Jan, my hostess, could not have been more accommodating - she booked me in at late notice, put me up in her spare room for the one extra night resulting from my early arrival, fed me, and generally could not do enough to help. The property looks east over the airport, which is not busy enough to be a disturbance - meaning you get to see the sunrise, and have wonderful morning sun. In the heat of the day and in the afternoons the property is perfectly cool, with refreshing tradewinds. For afternoon sun I went to the beach below the property - 1 minute by car, 5 minutes or so by foot. The beach at long bay provides sheltered swimming, a 1/2 mile stretch to run on the beach, and rarely has more than a few locals at weekends, deserted during the week. The shops and restaurants of East End are just 5 minutes away by car (Red Rock is excellent), and Road Town, the small but bustling capital, is just 20 minutes away. The property itself is spacious, clean and comfortable - a very large and well-equipped kitchen, comfy sitting area with cable TV, and a large bedroom and bathroom. The washer and dryer, combined with the discretely-located outdoor clothes line, make for easy facilities also. Overall a perfect spot for an uncomplicated holiday, great value, super-friendly hostess, and well-connected to the airport and the rest of Tortola.

                    This rental was Paradise, from the peaceful surroundings to the incredible vista from the verandah. Our accommodations were perfect, large bedroom, well supplied kitchen, and the sound of the ocean. No need to travel too far the beach is a 7 minute walk, 5 minutes by car, and Trellis Bay in 7 minutes by car. Jan is very sweet and very helpful in all your needs. Thanks Jan for a great stay,we loved it.

                    We have been coming to this property since the 90s. We love the views, the breeze, the easy access to the never crowded beach below, the quiet and private neighborhood, the just like home amenities. We always rent a car, but nowadays we don't use it much: just to the store and restaurants. We've done the dive trips, day sails, etc. Now we just like to relax, do laps on the beach, swim to the reef, and walk around the neighborhood. It's a tough life, but as Arnold famously said: "I'll be back!"

                    Jan's 'Little Mermaid' is spacious, quiet, comfortable, well appointed and what a view! An invigorating walk or brief drive to what may as well be a private 1/4 mile long horseshoe shaped beach was our daily escape. Jan was very attentive to our needs. We will be back!

                    We snuck down to Tortola in Nov. Having lived in the BVI's a number of years ago, (on a boat in Trellis Bay), we like to go back to Beef Island as we have friends there. We have had a wonderful time staying at Jan's Little Mermaid, in the past and so were happy to stay again. It is perfect for the two of us. The 4 minute walk down the road to Long Bay beach is great, and I have to say that beach is a jewel, it is very quiet and still pristine. Used mostly at first light in the morning by folks exercising, and as a local family beach on Sundays... otherwise very quiet. Back up at Little Mermaid, it is very comfortable for two folks, nice deck, incredible views from North East to South, (so from Virgin Gorda to Norman Island and St.John), amble living, kitchen and bedrooms, etc. What else? Jan (the owner) is a wonderful person who is highly respected in the local community and is very fair and has been in the rental business with her places for many years! Oh and make sure you make it down to hang out along the Beach in Trellis Bay... great fun places, shops, cafe, bars etc...

                    Views are amazing. Seeing the sun come up over Beef Island was terrific. Unit has all the modern conveniences as you can see by the photos, including washer/dryer. Quite spacious and clean. Photos accurately reflect the unit's appearance and amenities. Owner so friendly, cheerful and helpful. Couldn't have asked for any more. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Was not bothered by the airport. Fun to watch the planes land and take off. Location is about 5 minutes from the Beef Island airport. There are nearby activities and restaurants, but if you want to go farther afield, it might be good to rent a car; must drive on the "wrong" side of the road.

                    Great time! Dec. 21 - 31, 2012. All VRBO reviews here did a good job describing the apt & owner, Jan. It doesn't take long before you feel like Jan is your long-time friend. She is very welcoming, kind & helpful. The apartment is very spacious & very clean. The bed is comfortable. Jan had bread, butter, milk & sugar in the refrigerator for us upon our late evening arrival so we could have breakfast the next day which was much appreciated. Also appreciated having secured wi-fi access & free land-line phone usage. Jan invited us to her annual Christmas dinner for people who are visiting the island. It was such a nice evening with great potluck food, interesting people to talk with, & a gift exchange where you can take others gifts away or keep yours. We were told not to bring food or little gifts because Jan already had us covered. We LOVE the location & views. Hummingbirds visit the bouganvillea & a pair of kestrels like to sit on the utility pole. Pelicans, brown boobies & an occasional large raptor also do fly-bys. Enjoyed watching planes at the airport & there aren't that many so it's not annoying. The view of Long Bay Beach and nearby islands is beautiful. Long Bay Beach is a great place to swim, walk or relax, as good as any other beach on the island. Red Rock restaurant is nearby & has excellent food. We also enjoyed rotis, West Indian "pasties" from nearby Trellis Bay. The full moon party in Trellis Bay was good fun. There is a fabulous French bakery & deli on the east end of Road Town in the same small shopping complex as Tico liqour. We recommend car rental from DeDe's. "Deadman" the owner was very polite & easy to work with. He dropped off a nice clean well-running small SUV. We've visited many different Caribbean islands. Tortola stands out for having the nicest local people who are friendly, polite and helpful. It was fun to visit with taxi drivers, shop keepers & others. I was lost in Road Town one day so stopped to talk with the taxi drivers near the cruise ship dock. I got directions & then one of the men got in his van & lead me to the road intersection I needed. Snorkeling is disappointing if you've seen good reefs with lots of life. Best was at Long Bay Beef Island on the left side along the shore. Saw reef squid, lobster, arrow crabs, 2 diffferent eels, porcupine fish. Took all-day trip to Norman Island - fun but below average . Too many boats dropping anchor all over. BVI needs more mooring balls to protect reefs. Thanks, Jan!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1972

                  About the owner: I have owned and operated this property as rental units for 29 years and have lived on this Estate for almost 42 years. I have. sailed, boated, snorkeled, dived, and owned a gift shop. My time now is devoted to rentals. I came from Barcelona, NY on Lake Erie and have loved living here all these years.

                  Why the Owner Chose Beef Island:
                  My husband and I bought this property and when I became a widow, decided to start a rental business. My husband was a pilot and we had a helicopter and just flew around these islands. Being near the airport has been especially nice for many reasons.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  The beach below is beautiful, either for swimming or walking. and I never get tired of looking at it. Beyond is the airport making it easy to arrive and depart. And beyond the airport are the beautiful islands in the background with boats sailing along.
