Great Place, Beautiful Views, Perfect for two to get a way
"We stayed in June to celebrate our 10 year Anniversary. The place was perfect for what we wanted and our expectations where met and then some. The previous reviews where very accurate and prepared us for our stay.
Sayula, the house manager, was very helpful and assisted us with anything and everything we needed. Including escorting us to the house the first day, recommending beaches, restaurants, car rentals and dealing with refrigerator issue we had during our stay. She was available, courteous and prompt to respond. Everything we could have asked for. We recommend following her recommendations.
The house was prepared perfectly for our arrival and the views and the house layout is great. The pictures they provide speak for themselves, but still do not do it justice. There are two pesty birds that will wake you up every morning if you leave your bedroom windows and doors open and they will steal any food you leave out. Beware!
While the house is beautiful, private and secluded we recommend that if you stay you check all the BVI has to offer. Our recommendations are Virgin Gorda's baths, hog heaven and the northern sound. On Tortolla we enjoyed the beaches along the northern shore. Brewers beach, cane garden and trunk bay top the list. Then there is Jost which is worth the trip for bar hoping and emerging yourself in local culture.
Are typical travel philosophy does not have us going back to the same place twice. Cooten House will definitely be breaking that. Maybe for our 20th! But, I have a feeling it will even be early than that."

"Scotland Villa exceeded our expectations in every way.
You have the most amazing views from every room in the house, and your 2 minute drive from one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen. The Villa is designed and furnished perfectly for a laid back, relaxed stay and its in the most quiet area of the island, witch we loved. Sam and her husband CJ were amazing hosts and really go out of their way to help you have a great stay. Thanks so much for the perfect Honeymoon we cant wait to come back !"

"My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at The Little Mermaid. We had an amazing time! Jan is a great host and answered every question we had. Whenever we needed something she was very helpful in finding chairs or a cooler or whatever else we asked for. Her place is large and clean. She is very proud that she has upgraded much of her stuff and it shows. The WIFI helped us keep in touch with our kids back home but she was also willing to let us use her phone to call the states if we needed it. The beach is just a 5 minute walk down the road and the best snorkeling we did the whole time we were there! We hit all the beaches we could find and this beach has some of the best coral! Jan has 3 dogs and they loved going to the beach with us and kept us company every morning and evening. It was fun to have them around. The island itself is great and the local people were very willing to help us when we needed help finding the correct road to any number of beaches we went to. You do need a car and careful driving as it is a bit crazy. It was always nice to get back to Beef Island. Trellis Bay is just a 5 minute drive with a few great restaurants. We had our anniversary dinner at The Last Resort after getting off the ferry from Virgin Gorda. Best meal we had as we watched the sunset and talked to the owner Bill. We cooked breakfast every morning and packed a lunch for our daily adventures which saved us lots of money. There is a few nice grocery stores close by so getting food was easy. Jan has satellite TV as we needed to watch the Chicago Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup. She also has a nice pool that you can use after coming back from the beach. The airport was not really a problem. We recommend anyone looking for a nice quiet place to stay to book with Jan as we had a great time!"

"We enjoyed a 10 day family getaway with our adult boys, with one of their friends & our daughter-in-law. Perfect for 6 people, we loved ending each day in the pool overlooking beautiful Cane Garden Bay. The home is walking distance to good restaurants but be warned it is quite a climb up a steep hill back to the Villa! Sam was extremely helpful in getting us set up for rental cars, groceries & alcohol. Each bedroom had a very efficient ac & the multiple patios were great to enjoy the views. Driving on the island is not for the feint of heart w/ hairpin curves, fast drivers & steep hills. We visited Soper's Hole, taking the Voyager catamarans to Jost Van Dyke & Norman Island. We took the ferry to Virgin Gorda. We visited Myett's for several meals and enjoyed the beach & bar tremendously. We found many VI & BVI natives come to play on that beach as well so we felt like we picked an ideal spot. Only issue was a broken washer/dryer but we didn't really need it. Plenty of towels provided!"
