"Our family of 4 (two teens) stayed in early August. The kids enjoyed having their own rooms and bathrooms. The weather was hot, but the trade winds and pool were great spots to cool off. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was very welcome. The Van Dyke home is just as it appears in the pictures - clean and well appointed. We had no issues at all. The deck is the highlight of the home, with comfortable chairs and loungers and fantastic views of the ocean during the day and stars at night. It was a short walk to the beautiful Long Bay beach and restaurants. We rented a car, so there was easy access to Sopers Hole market and restaurants and downtown Tortola. A day trip to the Bath on Virgin Gorda and a snorkel day sail on the Aristocat catamaran rounded out our stay. Sam and Sharlene were great. Sharlene met us at the airport and helped us get to the house. One bag was delayed and Sharlene brought it to us the next day. We would love to go back."

"Where to begin?! Our adventure began with a 45 minute ferry ride across the teal coloured waters of the Pacific. We were greeted by our gracious host, Ben, who took us to our little piece of paradise we were privileged to call home for one week. (Next time we are definitely staying longer)
The pictures you see are just but a glimpse of what Kerensa has to offer. This villa has all of the modern day conveniences you could want whilst maintaining the island charm we were looking for. The furnishings are both rustic AND comfortable. You have access to wifi, outdoor speakers, endless music selections, a big screen TV, movies (Netflix), a brand new Weber Bbq (my husband was thrilled) and telephone. The overall condition of the villa was SUPERB! Very clean and well kept. There was no shortage when it came to luxurious linens or supplies.
Ben, a 30 year resident of Tortola, was extremely helpful with the planning of our vacation. He made himself available whenever we called upon him and was eager to suggest places to visit on the island.
The panoramic views from your VERY private 'nest' are spectacular! In morning we would wake to the breathtaking views and sounds of the ocean from our four poster, very comfy bed. In the evening we would pour a glass of wine, turn on some music and watch the sun set directly in front of us!
We planned To rent a car mid week to travel the island but to tell you the truth, once we were there, we had no desire to leave!! We were able to walk down to Brewers Bay (15 min walk) which had a lovely beach but couldn't wait to get back to the villa for a swim in the infinity pool and to watch the sunset! I'm still smiling as I write this!!
Prior to our arrival I ordered all of our groceries, wine etc on line. The grocers deliver free of charge so when we arrived all we had to do was throw on our bathing suits and jump in the pool... SEAMLESS!!
My husband and I have traveled many places. This is our 5th year renting with VR.com and KERENSA is the only place we woukd return to! Thank you Ben.... We'll see you next year!!!"

"BayHouse was a simply fantastic home! The location is absolutely incredible and very convenient to many restaurants, grocery, beaches, etc.. The home is true to the photographs and video images and in fact…better.
I cannot say enough about the house managers, Irma and Howard. They we so responsive and accommodating to every request and need. We can't wait to re-visit the island and reunite with BayHouse!"
