  • Great Location, Great House, Great View

    "This house is a show home with a million dollar view. First off the location is perfect if you like to have some privacy with only a few houses around you for safety. Let's start off with the pool. The pool is much larger than the picture shows it to be. Most pools are dipping pools but this one you can actually use to do laps. The pictures do not do it justice as you can not see the length of this pool from the pictures. It is situated on the west side which means that when it comes to watching the sunset go down in the infinity pool it is warm since the sun has been able to warm it up for most of the day. Then you have the view. It looks out to the Dog Islands and Tortola and also to the clear Ocean. This allowed us to see the Green Flash of the sun on a clear sunny day sunset which was taught to us by some friends we met on the island. The bay in front of the house is Nail Bay and to the right is Long Bay and is great for snorkeling and is one of the best on the island. The waters are fairly calm and was able to take the Kayak out fairly far and also you can snorkel way out also. I had a car and basically went around the whole island at least twice and visited all the beaches and I have to say that the owner of this house knew what he was doing when he picked this location. This bay along with Mahoe bay is probably the two best beaches on the island in my opinion and and Mahoe bay is only a couple of minutes drive. The interior of this house is show home quality and is immaculate with all the amenities. The home owner has really gone all out to provide a top notch house."

  • Don't expect luxury

    "If you don't expect luxury and just need a place to hang your hat and sleep off the day's activities, this is a great choice. If you want comfort and luxury - not so much. This is as basic as it can be. The location is beautiful. The photo you see on the page is to the east. They don't show you the view to the north which is the open Caribbean, or to the west which is a beautiful view of Jost Van Dyke. While this is, technically, ocean front, it is not beach front. The property is about 15 feet above the shore line, but in this case the shore is rocks and boulders. You will have to walk about 200 yards to get to beach access. The sound of the waves crashing on the rocks is either soothing or unsettling depending on how high the swells are. I can tell you that some nights the sound was loud enough to wake me - and other nights it lulled me into a peaceful slumber. There is no A/C. You will have to rely completely on ocean breezes and fans. There is no oven (probably a good thing considering the heat they give off), but there is a cook top and microwave. The bed linens are a bit on the scratchy side. If you've had too much sun or have very sensitive skin this can be an issue; otherwise, you should adapt quickly. The outside patio is the best part of this property. Again, it is just the basics, but it where we spent most of our time when we were there. You can sit in the sun or the shade and just watch the world go by. This location is very convenient to some of the best beaches in the BVI, as well as the best dining. Great food and drink are never more than a 10 minute car ride away. One more tiny issue that may be relevant to some travelers - this is not an accessible property. You must go down a narrow and fairly steep staircase. If you have mobility issues, this is not a good choice."

  • Better than the photos

    "The one bad thing about Villa Towanda was that it spoiled every other location that my friends and I visited! The views from the villa are incomparable, and the vibe in the house is intimate, relaxed and comfortable. After a day at one of the beaches or out on the water, there was no other place that we wanted to be than Towanda. Period. We cooked in the open kitchen almost every night and sat on the terrace for sunset and moonrise. The view across the bay to Jost is unsettlingly beautiful. I will definitely return. There were so few people at Long Bay beach (just at the bottom of the road!) that it felt like a private beach. No kidding. If you're looking for great restaurants, this may not be the place for you. The Sugar Mill was very good for dinner, and D'Best Cup in Soper's Hole was great for breakfast. Everything else we found was mediocre, but that really didn't matter to us because, as I said, we found we were happiest cooking at home and being mesmerized by the views. The kitchen was extremely well appointed, btw. The owners and managers were extremely kind and helpful as well."
