Recent Tortola reviews

  • Beyond our Expectations!

    "Our family stayed at Makere House and Cottage for 10 days. We have 2 teenagers who stayed in the cottage - so accommodations were PERFECT for all of us! The location was absolutely perfect for us. We explored the entire island of Tortola and found it fun and easy to get around. The roads are like nothing we have ever experienced - but super fun and easy by day 2! Weather was perfectly gorgeous! Went to Brewers Bay, Smugglers Cove and loved Cane Garden Bay as well. Snorkeling was amazing! Grocery shopping is near and we ate many homemade meals in the house kitchen. It was stocked with absolutely everything we could have needed. Beds were comfortable and baths were perfect. Excursions to Jost Van Dyke (our favorite) and The Baths at Virgin Gorda were fun and easy. Catching the ferry at both Roadtown and West End were less than 15 mins away. The people on Tortola and BVI in general were amazingly friendly and helpful. Met MANY people and had fun chatting with the locals no matter where we went. Had great food and drinks everywhere!!! A PERFECT vacation for our family - much needed - awesome bonding time for the 4 of us! WE WILL BE BACK FOR MORE!!!!!"

  • There are no words...

    "I feel that the English language is failing me as I try to describe the perfection of Karensa. Me and my husband have been to many gorgeous places in this world, and this tops them all. The pictures are amazing and still don't do this place any justice. The only problem with Karensa is the depression you feel when it is time to leave. Ben was one of the most gracious, accommodating hosts we have ever had. There was even a chilled bottle of champagne in the refrigerator for us upon our arrival. Do yourself a favor...please quit looking at other places available for rent on Tortola right now and book Karensa. You won't be sorry. PS...rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle. The road to Karensa is not for the faint of heart, which makes it even more fun."

  • Island fantasy

    "Tortola is a special gem of an island set in one of the most beautiful and peaceful island chains in the world. Previous sailing trips in the BVI were a sheer delight, but our stay at the Captain's House was by far the most enchanting week we have spent in the area. Photographs do not do justice to the spectacular views of the Caribbean, Long Bay Beach, and Jost Van Dyke. The villa, set high on a hill, is private, intimate, and cozy. The main house and guest suite are beautifully furnished and decorated with remarkable watercolor artwork reflecting the tone of this island paradise. The open feel of the property invites a comfortable, spacious and graceful comfort for outdoor dining and lounging, and the weather is superb. The outdoor showers are private and offer that magical view. Several excellent restaurants are easily reached, and the beaches are a few minutes away as well, and are pristine, and almost private. My wife and I enjoyed our stay and plan to return. Many thanks to the Captain and his Mate."

  • Incredible Caribbean Getaway

    "We were amazed when we pulled up at the gates of the AnaCapri Estate; it is a truly beautiful villa. The gardens were full of flowers, the sun was out and that was great - and then we walked out to the pool deck and saw the view. What a view! The photos online don't capture the incredibly vast view. Seriously, I woke up early every single day just to watch the sunrise. Amazing. The villa has lots of room for everyone to enjoy: pool deck, patio, gardens - all beautifully done! We spent a lot of time hanging out at the pool deck, kitchen and dining room - loved the music system for the pool and kitchen area. Tortola is a gorgeous island and thankfully not “touristy." The sereneness and natural beauty of the island were hard to leave. We had a wonderful vacation (complete with surfing and boating)! The lava flow beach was really nice and about five minutes away from the villa. No food or bathrooms there - totally private. We took the cooler and the beach chairs and relaxed...there isn’t anything there…or anyone. We are already talking about returning…sick of the snow up north..."

Tortola Travel Tips

Discover Tortola Vacation Rentals

Known as "nature’s little secret," the British Virgin Islands really are the place for a peaceful vacation to rediscover life’s simple pleasures. As there are no international flights onto the island, Tortola travel is available via a variety of larger Caribbean airports, such as those on Antigua, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas or St. Kitts. Being in the Caribbean, naturally, the weather is just about perfect all year-round. While it is British territory, the currency is the U.S. dollar and most places do take major credit cards. The four main islands are Anegada, Jost van Dyke, Tortola and Virgin Gorda. The largest of these is Tortola.

White Sandy Beaches With a Dark Green Mountain Backdrop

Tortola resorts are near the white sandy beaches, with a back drop of dark green mountains with a sheltered harbor, usually filled with yachts. The island has many safe anchorages in areas, such as Brandywine Bay, Hodge’s Creek, Marina Cay and Trellis Bay. These make it a perfect island for boaters. Beaches with palm trees line the coast. Areas such as Apple Bay, Elizabeth Beach, Long Bay Beach and Smuggler’s Cove are great places for a swim, snorkeling, scuba diving or fishing among the many great activities on offer.

Visitors can learn more about the unique history of the British Virgin Islands at the BVI Folk Museum. Take a tour of Callwood’s Rum Distillery where visitors can learn about the production of the famous local drink before sampling the final result. Explore the ruins of a variety of original buildings here, such as Fort Recovery. Dating from the early 1600s, the Fort probably gets its name from being used as a facility for wounded soldiers. One of the fascinating things about the fort is its location on the beach, instead of the traditional location of high ground. Fort Burt, on the other hand, is located on higher ground yet all that remains of the fort is a solitary cannon, still displayed overlooking the harbor. Take a break from the glorious beaches and head inland into the mountains to visit Sage Mountain National Park, where the vestiges of the primeval rain forest still remain. Along the mountain ridge, discover the villages were local life carries on much as it has for centuries.

The main town is Road Town. Here, visitors will find a great selection of shops selling locally made jewelry, spices, silk screen fabrics and art. There are also excellent restaurants to try the local dishes such as the fresh fish dishes of lobster and conch or spicy goat curries and "Johnny Cakes." Here, visitors may also enjoy a wander through the pergolas and vine-covered paths at O’Neil Botanic Gardens.

Tortola Resorts are Perfect Bases to Discover the British Virgin Islands

Tortola vacation rentals are also ideal bases for exploring the variety of other islands that make up the British Virgin Islands. On these islands, visitors will have a fascinating time exploring the various ruins from the island’s original African and Indian inhabitants as well as the secluded beaches and bays. During the fall and winter months, watch for the whales and dolphins as they make their way past the islands.

To the Infinity Pool and Beyond!

Tortola vacation rentals come in a wide variety of sizes to suit any requirement. Choose from a beautiful villa for two with a hot tub and infinity pool or a luxuriously spacious home to take a large family or group of friends. What is guaranteed is that each home is beautifully decorated and well equipped with everything to make a vacation special. These unique properties have modern conveniences such as DVD players, film and music libraries, stereo systems, and BBQs. Many even include internet access and will welcome pets.
