"This is without a doubt one of the best vacations we have had in a long time. Tortola and the surrounding islands are beautiful and Tortola makes for a great hub to venture out to places like Jost van Dyke and the Baths at Virgin Gorda. The Murray House fit all of our needs. We had six people (three couples) and there was plenty of room to relax, socialize, or to find your own space at the house. The house was well equipped and had a spectacular view. The location at the West End was the best as it was near Smuggler's Cove and the West End ferry terminal. Sam and Sharlene with Villas of Tortola were very helpful providing transportation from the West End ferry terminal to the house and also making sure that the items we ordered from grocery store and Caribbean Cellars were at the house when we arrived. They were a pleasure to deal with from the start of our trip until the end. We hope to return to Tortola and the Murray House!"

"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 !"

"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!!!"

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."
