Recent Tortola reviews

  • Lovely Return

    "We were happy to return to the Mermaids, and have enjoyed ourselves even more. The first visit, two years ago, was spent in Mermaid Villa, and this year we were in the "Little Mermaid'. Both rentals are beautiful, comfortable and have everything you could need for a wonderful stay. The views are incredible and the soft winds kept us cool. Such a great way to enjoy Paradise, surrounded by flowers and peace! Although the owner, Jan, was on vacation for part of our stay, her 'house-sitters', Mark and Maggie, were always available for advice and company, and have become new additions to our list of Beef Island friends. Jan's return dinner, together with other guests, is a fine memory of the friendliness of this beautiful island. We can't wait to go back!"

  • Awesome Place

    "We loved this house. The kitchen was well supplied. The staff were very kind. Loved the trail to the dock. Had two kayaks delivered for the week right to the dock. The snorkeling was great. Could have sat there forever watching the boats go by."

  • Amazing villa, AMAZING view

    "Villa Matija was everything we could ask for. Tom & Jessica were very nice. They met us at the airport on Tortola and led us to the villa. They explained everything we needed to know about the villa and gave us some tips about the island. Road Town and Brewers Bay are close, and just about anywhere else on the island was a reasonable drive. The villa was spotless, had all the modern amenities you would expect in a 7 year old villa, and everything was in great condition. The view of Brewers Bay and Jost Van Dyke from just about anywhere in the villa is absolutely amazing. Thank you, Tom & Jessica, Villa Matija is amazing and we will definitely come back if our travels bring us back to Tortola."

  • Villa with a view

    "If you are looking for a quiet peaceful place to get away relax and rest easy this is a wonderful spot! Traveled by myself and felt safe and secure. Ha ha even in the side swipe of hurricane "Gonzo". Sun shines in every morning for a gently wake up - sit out on balcony with amazing views while having your morning coffee. House is clean and equipped to prepare meals with nice sized grocery about 10 minutes away in Road Town. There is a great beach just short walk down hill from house or you may drive there. I was off season so it felt like that was my private beach!! Photos are accurate although better in person. I did rent a car to venture around and buy provisions. Jan is a wonderful host and if interested she has lots of interesting tales to tell of island life but if you wish to be alone and not bothered she would be that person also. I will be planning another trip for next year! Thanks Jan !"

A Slice of History

The opportunities for fun are endless in Tortola, so book Sea Cow Bay vacation rentals and get set for an adventure of a lifetime.
