Recent Tortola reviews

  • 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."

  • Fantastic Family Vacation

    "The villa was very well suited for our family of 8 including 2 kids with everyone having their own bedroom and bathroom as well as plenty of space to spread out in. Jon and Rohan met us at the West End Ferry dock with our rental vehicle as well as another car for our luggage and away we went on our vacation adventure. Jon bought us roti's from D'Coalpot for our first dinner and the frig was well stocked with breakfast items for the next day which was most appreciated. The view from the open air spaces are breathtaking especially with almost daily morning rainbows! We spent our days exploring different beaches ( our favorites were Cane Garden when no cruise ships are in and Josiah Bay for boarding)and our nights gathered around the big dining with table eating Caribbean dinners prepared by our oldest son and playing dominos and cards. We would not hesitate to recommend this villa and found Jon to be very accommodating whenever we called with a question. We hope to return soon to Tortola and the Limeberry Villa"

  • Perfect

    "We had a wonderful time on Tortola. The Van Dyke House was exceptional. Very unique layout. Attractive views and great tropical breezes. The sound of the waves rolling in is so relaxing. The beach is beautiful and quiet. Wear End has a terrific little grocery store and a day sail on Kuralu was worth every penny. The restraunts close to the Van Dyke House were very good. Its a short walk but a steep climb up from the beach."

  • OUTSTANDING!

    "We stayed at the Makere House and Cottage as 3 couples for 5 nights. Everything was perfect from the location, to the gorgeous view, to the super clean rooms. We couldn't have asked for more. Mobbsie, the property manager, was so gracious and helpful during our stay...he made us feel right at home and made sure we were well taken care of. Definitely rent a Jeep Wrangler from Jerry's to tour around the island...the roads are like nothing you've ever experienced for sure. We hope to return someday!"

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.
