  • Amazing Family vacation!

    "My family and I just spent 4 wonderful days at the Cane Garden Bay Cottages. It was clean and very comfortable. What we loved most was the wonderful yard right outside our door. My 9 and 10 year old children had so much fun reading under the big trees and hammock. They also enjoyed collecting almonds that had fallen from the trees and playing "almond ball" A wonderful family vacation memory! My husband and I especially loved how close it was to the beach, local restaurants, the small market and the glass blowing studio. We didn't bother renting a car. Walking everywhere was really nice. Staff was friendly and right there any time we had questions. Thank you Cane Garden Bay Cottages for an unforgettable family vacation! We'll definitely be back!"

  • Great stay!

    "Beautiful views! Jan is a great host and tries to do what she can to ensure a good visit. She offered to drive us to the ferry if we wanted to do an overnight on one of the islands so we didn't have to leave our car unattended. Her villa is wonderful, plenty spacious for our family of 3. View is fantastic, you can see Virgin Gorda and several small islands and you look down on a beautiful beach. The deck has comfortable chairs for relaxing and a large table so you can enjoy meals outside. We were a bit concerned about being across from the airport, but you're not that close it wasn't bothersome and was actually fun to watch the planes come and go. There's not a ton of traffic and there's no loud jets. The property doesn't have A/C but we opened the windows at night and being up on a hill we had plenty of breeze so we were very comfortable and it was fun to fall asleep and wake-up to the sound of the ocean. We really enjoyed the location. 2 minutes to Trellis bay where you can catch ferries for island hoping, only a 15 minute ride to Virgin Gorda. Trellis has several good restaurants and a bit of night life if you're looking for that (days at the beach did us in). There's also restaurants and supermarkets in East End only 7 minutes away. Being such a small island you're not far from anything. We drove all over exploring the beaches and were never more than 30-40 minutes from home. Have to say one of the best beaches was right below the villa. Long Bay East. A mile or so stretch of sandy beach that was almost always empty, had a beautiful view had GREAT snorkeling. The other 2 good snorkeling spots was Smugglers Cove and Brewsters. A few other points. Parking is directly next to the villa which hasn't been the case at some other places we've stayed. Big help when you're loading and unloading all your gear for the day. Jan provides plenty of towels and chairs for your beach time. The one thing that would have been nice is a cooler. Although I'm sure if we mentioned it she would have gotten us one. She offered to pick up a few things for breakfast if we didn't have time to shop on our first night. She's great! This was our first trip to Tortola and we'll certainly be back and when we do we'll stay with Jan again."

  • We will be back!!!! Amazing!!!

    "Scotland villa is by far the best vrbo we have stayed in. When you 1st walk in an take in the spectacular views you will be hooked!! The pictures do not do it justice until you see it with your own eyes!! Our kids loved the pool and with smugglers cove down the hill it was perfect. Plus it is easy to get around the island to do other things. Waking up each morning hearing the ocean and seeing the spectacular view we never wanted to leave. Sitting on the patio at night looking at stars having a glass of wine... Perfect. Sam and Sharlene were so wonderful to work with. They really made it easy and always available for questions. We will be back to Scottland next year and hopefully for many years after!! Thank you:)"

  • Seriously awesome and beautiful villa!

    "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. Tips: 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!"
