Recent Tortola property reviews

  • Absolute Paradise in Paradise

    "Villa Aja is an absolutely beautiful retreat. Stunning views from JVD in the west to Great Camenoe in the east. It was the perfect spot for our crew of eight after a week of sailing. Each bedroom is it's own master suite and provides privacy when you feel the need while it's open design in the common areas takes full advantage of the environment and makes for great socializing. A very well appointed and stocked kitchen, perfect for those gourmet dinners while you enjoy the views. The infinity pool is amazing but it can't top the virtually deserted beach at Trunk Bay with it's silky soft sand and crashing surf. Highly recommended for couples or a large family. Enjoy! (BTW, fantastic property management team, very responsive.)"

  • Still the ONE

    "This was our 4th stay at Villa Dulcinea and it remains a spectacular rental. The location is ideal. you can go to St. John's, St. Thomas, Jost Van Dyke (White Bay kicking back at Ivan's) or Virgin Gorda via ferry for the day from Soper's Hole if you want to get out for day trip explorations. Or you can walk to Smuggler's Cove and spend a relaxing day where the breeze always blows, the shell hunting is good and Patricia serves great lunch and drinks. The photos very accurately describe the property. it is very clean, beautifully decorated, the kitchen allows us to cook our meals with ease as it is very well stocked with necessary equipment. The Fish 'N Lime restaurant is lots of fun in the evenings with live music. We already have next year's week reserved!"

  • Sweet Retreat

    "This was my 4th visit to Cane Garden Bay, and my first time staying at Cane Garden Bay Cottages. Each of my visits has been at the end of a 7-10 day sailboat charter, so I am looking to fully relax and be gentle to myself, before my return to reality. I spent 3 nights in Cottage 4. I had seen the cottages on a previous visit, and they looked inviting. The description on their website was apt, and my expectations were not disappointed. Reserving the place with Samantha was straight forward, and well managed, and the place was well ready upon my arrival. The cottage was welcoming, bright and airy. It had all the amenities I required, with a tidy kitchen for meal preparation, (though I ate out for most meals), a cold fridge for drinks, and a comfortable bed and bathroom. The overhead fans and large screened windows provided ample breezes for escaping the heat of the day - not that I really wanted to. Nestled in the edge of a jungle-like grove, surrounded by a large, well manicured yard, the cottage was a sweet retreat from the "hustle and bustle" of the main street and beach. The beach, restaurants and bars were easy steps away. I could watch the sunset from my front step, through the palm trees, enjoying a cocktail. Of course the ubiquitous roosters were my alarm clock, sounding off perhaps a bit earlier than I had wished for. I thoroughly enjoyed my short visit and would return for an extended stay. I have no problem being entertained while passing time in Cane Garden Bay, and could easily make Cottage 4 my home for a while."

  • Top class

    "My party of eight friends just spent a delightful week at Gun Point (Nov 10 to 18). Most of the compliments I would list have been made in other reviews, but a few points stand out: This villa really lends itself to just hanging out and doing nothing much, thanks to spectacular views, a deck with various areas for lounging and conversation, a nice sandy beach close by, the infinity pool and, importantly, the grassy areas that reinforce the feeling of being on a spacious private estate – which of course Gun Point actually is. I expected we would eat out a lot but we only dined out once (in Cane Garden Bay, with steel band duo; anyone new to the islands should hear a live steel band at least once, so that was a hit). Partly because the ladies were excellent cooks but also because Gun Point is so relaxing that one is in no hurry to leave it for somewhere else. Similarly, we did not do many excursions – just a day sail on a catamaran based at Sopers Hole. The West End is the only part of Tortola I know, but between the villa, the beach (Smugglers Cove), the bays along the north west shore (Apple Bay, Carrot Bay, Cane Garden Bay) and the marina at Sopers Hole with nice cafes and decent grocery shopping, it feels like a self-sufficient island of its own where one doesn’t feel like a tourist, even though one is. No need to venture into Road Town that I could see. The pharmacy perhaps. Management: great job by JC and Sam (Samantha) Pierce. JC is in perpetual motion, fixing stuff and generally helping out. Must be hard work but he never seems to lose his cool. Overall: top marks all round."

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.
