"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!"

"Just returned from a wonderful stay at Captain's House. My wife and I have been traveling to Tortola since 1998 and have stayed at many beautiful villas. We wanted to stay at Captain's House for a number of years and since we were traveling alone it was the perfect time. When we walked in we were immediately impressed. The villa was immaculate. The photos do not do it justice. Perfect for a romantic getaway. Sharlene, the villa manager was fantastic and was completely committed to making our stay perfect. We asked for a cooler and she brought one immediately. Lorna, the house keeper was great also. Extremely friendly and also dedicated to perfection. Of course our first critique was to compare it with other villas. We both thought tied for number one but by the end of the week, number one! We like to stay in Belmont Estates for its privacy and proximity to beaches and other attractions we like to visit. Peter, the owner, called during our stay to check on us. This shows the commitment to excellence. We would return in a heartbeat. If you are used to driving in the Caribbean the drive is normal but steep. And the view is what you would expect from the photos but much better. We have stayed at villas without air conditioning and Captain's house proved you really don't need it in a good location. Would recommend this villa to my closest friends."

"Lovely cottage with large, open plan. The view was beautiful. The master bedroom had high, vaulted ceilings and air conditioning. Just steps from the pool and very private.
Bear in mind that the roads are dangerous at night, so it's advisable to get back before sunset ( especially with a few cocktails on board) but apparently there are taxis.
Very close to beach bars, restaurants etc. but again an all wheel drive jeep is recommended to get back up the steep hill. We rented from Jerry's car rental at West end. Our advice is to not get the low end Jeep..and upgrade a tad.
Bring your own candles.
Bring your own toiletries as few are supplied, + toilet paper.
Tina the owner was very kind and swift to reply if any issues.
It's advisable to stay beyond hurricane season, as this can be hot/ humid and only one air conditioned room.
Hey, bring your own movies! The supply of DVDs is great, but a bit hard to hear with the fan blowing :-) we had to stay indoors given the weather. On the one, starry night, it was beautiful.
Perhaps our stay was a little 'off season' but in general the house is lovely and do make it down to the local beach bars/ restaurants if you can. 'myetts' had a fantastic happy hour time from 5-7 with amazing Mahi tacos with red caggage..yumm and a lovely, funny musician!
Brewers Bay beach is very quiet, but lovely.
Paradise beach bar on Cane Garden Bay is lively and have great drinks...
Locals are friendly, but not overly so. It's polite to say " hello, how are you?" In order to receive the same.
Makere is a lovely spot. We really enjoyed our time..."

"My mother, sisters and I just returned from a long awaited trip to this beautiful island and AnaCapri. The minute we walked into this magnificent villa our mouths dropped open from the overwhelming view! Every morning we were in awe to experience such beauty. Every evening we stayed poolside to watch the sun go down over the sea. We traveled all over the island and saw some beautiful places but at the end of the week we decided none was more spectacular than being at Karen's (the owner) villa. Every moment was relaxing, soothing and peaceful. Karen's attention to detail in this lovely home was so much more than what you see in the photos online. We wanted for absolutely nothing. From the very beginning making our plans, Karen was so wonderful to talk with giving us recommendations, directions, little nuances about the villa and even driving tips! Everything from the moment of arrival, meeting with Joss the house manager all the way to our final moments on the ferry leaving the island were flawless. And we even fell in love with Zane, one of the local driver's that Joss introduced us to. He was so kind and helpful and even agreed to be our driver one evening for dinner. (I highly recommend Brandywine Estate Restaurant - lovely fine dining, fantastic food and stay and play a few rounds of bocce ball afterward). Cape Garden Bay was our favorite beach to lounge and play on. We went paddle boarding, at some local fare and met some wonderful local people. But our greatest find was stumbling on to Smugglers Cove. The water will take your breath away. Then be sure to brave your way up and down the bumpy road that follows the island all the way around to Road Town. You will see so much beauty that its hard to take it all in. We will return to AnaCapri and this beautiful island! Thank you Karen for sharing your slice of Heaven with us!"
