Recent Tortola reviews

  • Lovely villa, a great pool, incredible views

    "We stayed at Jan's Mermaid Villa with our kids & we all loved this place. Great layout, very comfortable, incredible view. The beach is an easy walk -- it's one of the nicest beaches I've ever seen. We walked back & forth at least twice a day - it's an easy drive, too, if you're carrying stuff. We rented a car from "dead man" & it couldn't have been easier - it was a really nice car, super clean that he left for us at the ferry terminal. The supermarkets have everything you need. Highly recommend the villa - it would be a good place for a larger group if you rent both the villa & the other little house - the pool is between them. Next time we would probably fly to Beef island as the ferry was pretty time consuming - loved this place!"

  • Awesome All Around!!

    "This place is a gem on Tortola!! The description is exactly spot on and more! We spent half of our honeymoon here and couldn't have been happier. When I booked the room I had requested room 9 because I had heard it was one of the best single rooms. It was a last minute booking so I was not sure if we could get it, but when we got there she had put us in room 9. The view was stunning! There had been a tropical storm which forced us to hunker down for the day. To our surprise the restaurant opened despite the storm. The food there was some of the best we had in the islands. The staff was super friendly. We would definitely stay there again!"

  • 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."

  • 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!"

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.
