  • A Taste of Paradise

    "What a beautiful view from atop the mountainside! It felt like we could fall right into the sea below. Many gorgeous sunsets! And the perfect experience was the warm hospitality when we arrived and the helpfulness ahead of arrival from the friendly owners. Nicely appointed. Would definitely recommend and stay again."

  • ocean view, quiet, comfort and rainbows

    "We were fortunate to stay for 10 days at Prettyview Villa. And as the name says, the view from this little villa is great—a gorgeous vista of green sloping down to the turquoise and blue sea off Lambert Beach. The outside is beautifully landscaped with plants, flowers, fruit trees and resident boulders. You’ll see hummingbirds or the occasional bannaquit, and at night hear ocean and the ever-present coquí. Inside this one room villa, surrounded on two walls by sliding doors, you’ll find a quiet, nicely acquitted space. Having a microwave and mini-fridge in the room is very convenient. The sitting space is nice, the Internet wifi is reliable, and there is a large closet with lots of hanging space (though no dresser). The bathroom has two large showers, one indoor (with two shower heads) and one outdoor for when you just want to be closer to nature. The kitchen on the lower level has a full size fridge with freezer and stove, and to be honest, we used it a lot! There are a lot of stairs to reach the villa from the road, as this house is almost literally built into the hillside, so beware if that should be a concern. The location is great for a couple that want to spend a quiet vacation, as the east side of the island seems much quieter than the west end. We love to sleep, swim, snorkel, read, eat and drink, and this is a great place for that kind of vacation. We found plenty of nice beaches nearby, including a sandy cove (Well Bay) that turned out to be an interesting place to snorkel (we were told we might find starfish, but we found huge crustaceans and upside down jelly fish). Assuming you rent a car, there are a lot of places to visit nearby, Lambert Beach and Long Bay, Trellis Bay (renowned for full moon parties), the aforementioned Well Bay, and the ferry dock that can take you to several other islands, including Virgin Gorda with its fascinating Baths. We had a wonderful time at Prettyview and would love to visit again. We are recommending it to our friends. We experienced two daytime short rains while we were there, one lasting about thirty minutes and the other off-and-on for two hours. If the rain comes from the east, down the hill, it may likely result in a rainbow out off Lambert Beach… So, to sum up: an ocean view, quiet, comfort and rainbows."

  • There are no words...

    "I feel that the English language is failing me as I try to describe the perfection of Karensa. Me and my husband have been to many gorgeous places in this world, and this tops them all. The pictures are amazing and still don't do this place any justice. The only problem with Karensa is the depression you feel when it is time to leave. Ben was one of the most gracious, accommodating hosts we have ever had. There was even a chilled bottle of champagne in the refrigerator for us upon our arrival. Do yourself a favor...please quit looking at other places available for rent on Tortola right now and book Karensa. You won't be sorry. PS...rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle. The road to Karensa is not for the faint of heart, which makes it even more fun."

  • Two thumbs up!

    "Da Blue House is a charming, impeccably clean, and well-equipped cottage in a friendly neighborhood where locals are quick to say hello and offer assistance. The location was a perfect spot for me and my college-aged daughters to explore the island. Sam and JC were easy to reach and made sure that we had everything we needed, then after our trip, returned our security deposit lighting fast. Two of the most beautiful beaches- Long Beach and Smugglers Cove- are just a few minutes' drive, and great restaurants like Cruzin, Palm's Delight, and Sugar Mill are within walking distance, with great views along the way. In fact, the sunset from Cruzin was a dream. Island driving is an adventure in itself. The crazy-steep hairpin curves on the way to Cane Garden Bay take some getting used to (beep your horn on the approach and take 'em wide). Loved the food and music at Quito's and killer BBQ at Elm's. Being the off-season, we frequently found ourselves alone or with few others on beaches and in restaurants, except at the Baths, which despite the relative crowds, is still a must-see. Also recommend sailing and snorkeling with Gary on Karalu- excellent service and lunch on board. The highlight of our trip was breakfast with Mr. Egbert Donovan, just up the street at the North Shore Shell Museum. Be sure to call or visit him first to make a reservation. Mr. Egbert served up fabulous mango, banana, and coconut pancakes, mango smoothies, and charming tales of island life, as well as a tour of the "museum". Best of all, he strummed his guitar, sang original songs, and gave us instruments to play along. Priceless. One thing to note if you're a light sleeper- roosters and light traffic may keep you awake at Da Blue House, but once you relax and get in your island groove, it's all good. Truly fantastic …we’ll be back. Thanks Sam and JC!"
