  • Georgetown Villas

    "Once again we enjoyed two weeks at the Georgetown Villas condo. All of our time was either spent snorkeling, or fishing. The snorkeling is some of the best I have seen in the Caribbean. The fishing was very good, with just a bobber and squid as bait. The condo is in a great location, with a beautiful view of the water"

  • Nicest House I've Ever Stayed In. Period.

    "Just got home from a weeklong stay at Calypso with two other couples and the depression is already beginning to set in. Thought I'd stave it off by going back to VRBO to relive the experience through the pictures, which don't even begin to do the property justice. You legitimately can't capture the view that this place has with a camera. We had high expectations going in, and Calypso far exceeded all of them. The house was clearly very well thought out, from the layout of the pool/open kitchen/patio which afford absolutely stunning views of Crooks Bay and the Jerusalem Islands, to the finer details like the teak furniture, manual mahogany blinds, and luxurious bedding. There is simply nothing to not rave about. While we loved every minute we spent exploring the breathtaking islands, we equally loved our relaxing time at home where we were comfortably able to lounge, swim, read, grill and catch up with friends. Irma was a great host - she picked us up at the airport with our rental car waiting and even stocked the fridge with beer and water. She made it clear that she was available at anytime to answer any questions or problems, and the one or two times we called her, she answered on the first ring. She even gave us a heads up the night before we left that Sunshine Air (or as the locals call it, "Sometimes Air") had changed our departure time the next morning - we wouldn't have known otherwise. As a side note, yes, the property has scorpions, the same way that our house has spiders - they are tiny, rarely seen and completely harmless. It's Virgin Gorda, scorpions live there. I don't go to Maine and complain about the moose. We'll definitely be going back."

  • Stay at Peña Mar!

    "Peña Mar Ocean Club, and this condo in particular, was the perfect base for our vacation. Mohammad, the owner, promptly answered all our questions prior to our visit and met us at the airport and gave us a nice welcome gift we used every day. He was available by cell phone throughout our stay, but more on that later. Peña Mar is a 45 minute drive from San Juan, all on highways until the end. The complex has 24/7 gated security with a guard. We always felt safe. The condo is on the 3rd floor and is very clean and modern. There is a cooler for the beach, a washer and dryer, iron, basketball, 2 TVs and many beach towels. All the bedrooms are air conditioned and there are 2 ceiling fans in the common area. There is Wifi throughout - the modem died while we were there and Mohammad first took the time to call the cable company and troubleshoot the problem, then made arrangements of us to pick up a new modem. The main pool and gym is about a 1 minute walk away! Peña Mar is a very short drive from Seven Seas beach, the Bio Bay tours, ferry to Culebra, and several excellent restaurants such as Pasion por el Fogón, La Estacion, and Kasavista. Walmart and other large stores are on PR-3 about 10 minutes away by car. El Yunque is about 25 mins. El Conquistador, should you choose to go there, is only 5 mins away. Overall, this was the perfect place for our needs. We hope to return."

  • Absolute Paradise!

    "If your looking for the absolute most beautiful sunsets, quiet serenity, turquoise waters and exceptional surroundings, then this is the place for you! This was our second time staying in this villa, and when we discussed where to go when deciding on another island vacation, there wasn't any question as to what the answer would be, HIGH POINT on the beautiful island of Tortola. It's a stones throw from five different islands and much more tranquil and less touristy than St Thomas or St John, but does have quite a bit of shopping and tourist areas if you travel the 35 minutes east to Roadtown. We did take a few road trips to Roadtown and although it's quite busy, and easily accessed, it's easier to navigate during the day versus after dark. One of the many reasons we loved this villa is because of it's location. With beautiful (almost) 360 degree views, it's quiet and secluded and more room than you know what to do with. It's decorated superbly and is very homey. Soper's Hole is a wonderful little spot to visit and is on the west end of the island, easily seen from the villa's deck. With it's many boardwalk shops, boating/diving and snorkeling day trips you can take, or stopping at the famous Pusser's restaurant and bar, it's the perfect place to stop for lunch and enjoy a Pusser's "Pain Killer". There is also a local market which has everything you need (make sure you go upstair too) without traveling to Roadtown, it is an easy 5-7 minutes from the villa. There is also a wonderful outdoor bar and restaurant directly across the bay called The Fish-N-Lime Inn, which serves great lunches and evening specials of fresh fish and home made entrees. Check out the silver Tarpon, baby sharks and sting rays that swim at the end of the dock, awesome! You can also tour the island in one of Jerry's car rentals, making sure to visit the north side of the island where there are numerous beaches and small local villages. You can also catch the ferry and buzz over to Jost Van Dyke, where your first stop has to be Foxy's bar just walking distance up the road or grab a taxi and hit the beach at White Bay beach, beautiful! If you just want to lay back and do nothing, this villa is the perfect place with every amenity imaginable. Soak, swim, take a nap, or just relax and watch the most amazing sunsets while dining at home, Doug and Linda have made their home warm, inviting and cozy, there is no better place! There's not enough stars for this place, truly Paradise!!"
