  • Living the dream in Tortola

    "My first time in Tortola and wasn't sure what to expect after driving up a rocky road past incredible views of the water below. The villa is really three houses with spectacular views from every room each with it's own terrace, it was even better than the photos. The private pool and beautifully landscaped gardens added to the vista every morning when we sat for hours having our breakfast on the terrace overlooking the ocean. All the rooms are so well thought out we felt like we were in a 5 star hotel, plenty of towels, nice linens, fully furnished kitchen, wonderfully comfortable couches and chairs for evening get togethers and a separate media room in the third house. Some of the best beaches were just minutes away as well as restaurants and a grocery store. I came with two friends for a week getaway and couldn't be happier! Would definitely come back again."

  • Fantastic Place

    "While the weather was not cooperative at all this trip, the property was absolutely fantastic. The property's dual atmosphere of serving excellently as both summer lake house and fall/winter cozy retreat actually made our groups enthusiasm survive the storms that blew through and locked us inside. Only downside was a storm possibly knocked out the hot tub."

  • Magnificent home perfect for large groups or anyone trying to disconnect...

    "I rented this home for a corporate retreat. Our group was a total of eight people. The owner Joe was very nice and helpful when setting up the rental. He was easy to reach via phone or email with questions or exchanging the rental documents and checked in on us before and after arrival to be sure everything went well. The security deposit was also returned very promptly. This home truly has a calming effect from the moment you walk in - as if in a place so comfortable and beautiful it is hard to carry any stress. It is a gorgeous natural wood with an open concept living room, dining room and kitchen that feels very spacious. There is a great attention to detail in the house from the copper sinks to the little bear decorations that pop-up throughout the house. These all culminate in a feel that is refined yet homey. The best part of first arriving though is the view from the upstairs deck. The house is perched on a hilltop and from the deck you can look out over the tree line directly to Lake Tahoe - even catch a sunrise if you get up early enough. The home has a second den area downstairs which came in handy when the group broke up a bit to do different things. This home also has a great mix of rooms with Queen or King size beds (5) as well as having 2 rooms with four bunk beds each. I could see how it would be great for a group of couples or families with kids. There is plenty of room for everyone to feel like they have their own space. Hot tub, grill and a large driveway to park multiple cars is also a plus. The house is extremely close to a lot of great hiking in the area. It is literally only minutes from Desolation Wilderness where you can construct a hike anywhere from a pretty leisurely stroll to a full day or overnight backpacking trip. Our group went for the full day hike and were rewarded with great views and a good workout. It was a major plus to be so close to great hiking trails. One note - the closest major grocery store is a 10-15 minute drive. I would recommend trying to do your shopping in one trip and just stocking the place. Also, the house didn't have any basics stocked (salt, pepper, sugar, etc) so be sure to pick those up. Ultimately, our group had an amazing experience. We were all brainstorming reasons in the end for why we would rent the home again. I would wholeheartedly recommend this property to anyone looking to rent a vacation home in the Lake Tahoe area."
