  • 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!"

  • Breathtaking and peaceful experience

    "We just finished a two-week vacation at Makere Cottage, celebrating 20 years of marriage. Wow, the entire two weeks was absolute perfection. The majority of our time was spent being mesmerized by the breathtaking view. Every day, I was reminded of this quote (by good ol’ Anonymous): “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” Amen. We basically wore out a path between the deck, the couch (with the French doors open to the view), and the pool area…celebrating life’s moments – meals, meditation, happy hour, deep conversations, and just “being”. We loved everything about Makere – the beautiful deck, the air-conditioned bedroom, the cleanliness, the quiet and peacefulness, the proximity to Cane Garden Bay, the privacy, the stunning and majestic views, the landscaping and lush greenery and trees, the beautiful pool area, and the friendliness and hospitality of the owner and nearby property manager. We felt very loved, welcomed, and cared for and are beyond appreciative of every little detail that made up this unforgettable vacation. I am returning to life at home with a renewed sense of peace and enlightenment and cannot wait to share it with others. If you choose to stay at Makere, know that you will be richly blessed! Thank you, Tina & Adam. Thank you, Mobbsie. You will not be forgotten!"

  • Wonderful week at Cooten House....

    "My wife and I stayed at Cooten House in December for a week and loved it. The house is perfect for a couple to get away. It is secluded enough but close to Roadtown to be convenient. We used the hot tub all but one evening and it was a highlight of the house. There is a great Bose sound system which we also used a lot. Jeremy also has a phone at the house for local calls and even told us we could use it if we needed to call home. We only used it for a few local calls but nice to know it was there. The Wi-Fi was great and super reliable. The views are amazing from the house. Our favorite beach to visit was Josiah's Bay which you can see from the house. We rented 2 lounge chairs for $10, they had a bar and restaurant, and I took surf lessons which was a lot of fun. We met Jeremy at Riteway in Roadtown and he took us to the house. The last part of the road to the house is bumpy but not a big deal. I have driven in the US Virgin Islands and found the driving on Tortola very comparable. He was very helpful as was Marija before and during our stay. We would not hesitate to stay here again. A couple of things that we suggested to Jeremy before we left were some updated nicer beach chairs, (the two supplied were in bad shape and very uncomfortable), a blender (we love tropical frozen drinks and missed this small feature), and a safe (we were told it was on the to do list) for passports, cash, and valuables. Bug spray is a must. Mosquitos are an ever present issue in the tropics, not just Tortola and Cooten House. Not a negative at all, just a reminder to bring it and use it and you will be fine. Overall this was a wonderful trip and we highly recommend the Cooten House!!"

  • Managers couldn't be nicer

    "This a very artistic little property. It is right on the beach, the rocky part between Sebastian's main units and their newer units. It was easy to walk down to Apple Bay or Long Bay for beach or food. There was someone on sight that was so helpful and kind, they were very responsive to restocking missing supplies. The place had lots of cute little touches and you could tell that someone had really tried to provide all the little 'things' one ends up needing. There were plenty of towels, and the kitchen was very efficient given it's tiny size. We enjoyed sleeping to the sounds of surf every evening. I would not recommend it for families, or even romantic couples. It was a great surf shack, a place to crash your head at night after being out all day, but the downs were that is was quite dirty, most of the furniture was broken and in need of repair, and very rustic. I don't think it is worth the price we paid."
