"This is our 4th trip to Tortola, and this is by far the best place we have stayed. 3 bedrooms, each with their own private bathroom, plus a little studio apartment as a 4th bedroom plus bathroom and mini-kitchen. It has a nice swimming pool (actually pretty deep, maybe 7 feet at the deepest point?), lovely landscaping, and incredible views of all the sailboats at Soper's Hole and Frenchman's Key from the villa's perch on the mountain. Stove/oven was professional grade, and the outdoor grill was huge! The kitchen was the best-stocked with pans/plates/utinsils/small appliances of ANY VBRO house we have stayed in in the world! Bathrooms in the "west wing" have outdoor showers; lovely during the day or at night to shower under the stars! (though some animal/bird kept stealing the bar soap! Ha!) Beds were comfortable - kings were two twin beds put together, and all bedrooms had mosquito nets, air conditioners and fans. Wifi worked fine. Location was great - close to Soper's Hole and away from cruise ship traffic of Road Town, but within a half hour of many restaurants and beaches and walking distance to West End ferry terminal. Susan (owner) and Debs (manager) were really helpful before and during our stay with recommendations for restaurants, etc and were very responsive to our questions and emails. Restaurants nearby that we enjoyed were D'CoalPot (casual), Bananakeet (casual) and Sugar Mill Inn (fine dining). We enjoyed the beaches Cane Garden Bay (on a NON CRUISE SHIP DAY or around sunset!! otherwise it is miserably crowded) for SUP and relaxing (and Quito's there is also a good place to eat!), Brewer's Bay and Smuggler's Cove for snorkeling. We did a fun day sail with Kuralu which everybody else besides me enjoyed, and Captain Gary was very polite as I proceeded to retch over the side of his lovely vessel literally ALL DAY... :D We also had the MOST INCREDIBLE fresh cinnabuns from Susan's recommended baker Craig.
1. Water in the BVI tastes terrible no matter where we have stayed. :) A filtering water bottle like one by Camelback really helped the taste on this trip.
2. The driveway for this house is really steep and narrow, and for our SUV we had to back down it as there was no room to turn around. Have people stand outside and help you as you back down the first few times. :)
3. You can have Riteway, the main grocery store put provisions in the house to be there when you arrive - really helpful if you arrive at night!"

"We had the ultimate pleasure of staying at Susan and John's "Freddy" beautiful home this past week. I can honestly say, it took our breath away and not just the first time we saw it but every time we woke up and looked at it again. We felt so very blessed to have been given this wonderful experience to share with our family. You can just feel the love and attention that John and Susan put into their "home". That is what it felt like, a home, not a rental. John was in constant contact with me from the very beginning of booking our week there and was so very kind and unbelievalby helpful in giving us an abundance of information on where to go, what to see and how to get around. I have never had such a great experience renting from anyone as I did with them. There are so many wonderful, beautiful beaches, restaurants and just exploring the beautiful piece of heaven that Tortola and Casa Allamanda offer you! It is truly a little piece of peradise and one that can only be fully appreciated by experiencing this beautiful home!! Pictures truly do not do it justice. We have traveled to many islands and taken many vacations, but I can truly say, this was by far our most favorite vacations ever. John and Susan we can't thank you enough for sharing your beautiful comfortable home with us and giving us the the best memories for a lifetime. We will be back!!"

"My husband and I stayed at the Magic Castle Villa for 3 nights. This place is truly breathtaking and everything we could have wanted and more. It's private, spacious and well equipped with everything you need. We loved everything about it. Going to sleep listening to the waves and enjoying the constant breeze was so relaxing. It's just a short drive to a wonderful, beautiful beach that we had to ourselves each time we went. It also had great snorkeling which we really enjoyed. Eva is such a wonderful, kind person, and we truly enjoyed getting to know her and Rocket (her lovely dog!). She is extremely helpful, but not at all intrusive. Eva has thought of everything - all the details really make the place special. Our only regret was not being able to stay there longer. It was the perfect place for a romantic anniversary vacation."
