About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This secluded, private villa sits 400 feet above the palm-fringed white sands of Brewers Bay. With spectacular views to St. Thomas, Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Cay, Sandy Spit, Green Cay and straight out to the Caribbean Sea. You also have the luxury of a 15 minute walk to the beach or a 5 minute car ride. There are many outdoor sitting areas for shade and sun with Tropical gardens around every corner. You get the feeling of living in a spacious tree house. You can rock in the swinging rope chairs, relax on chaise lounges, relax on the 2 level deck with Tiki Hut Garden Grotto and hammock, relax on the tree deck under the shaded pergola or just float on the floaters in the soft water pool. Yes, the water is silky soft with no chemical smell, no dry skin, or red eye syndrome. This is due to the 1 tsp. of salt per gallon of pool water and a state of the art chlorination system. You are never lost for music with outdoor speakers and of course inside also and with Sirius/XM radio, you can always find your favorite music. Facing west, you will have a different spectacular sunset every night. This private villa is a West-Indian style home with14 ft. high ceilings. The master bedroom with king size bed has a quiet air conditioning unit, (rarely needed with the Caribbean breezes and Trade winds) ,large flat screen TV, and telephone. Each room has a huge paddle fan and there are Mexican Saltillo tiles indoor and out. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the appliances you could think of. Newly Maytag stainless 4 burner gas range and refrigerator with ice machine and dishwasher, micro, espresso machine, coffee makers, etc. My home has a washer and dryer (or use the outside clothesline) . The large living room with a 58" HDTV to include over a 100 satellite stations. With a built-in DVR, you can record your favorite show for another day. The 14 x 24 pool is very private (full sun) and is perched out of the mountain side. In addition to the full bathroom, there is an outdoor garden shower (hot and cold) with a view to the sea.

Sunny side of heaven

  • 5 of 5

If you decide to really really treat yourself (and your mate) to a place of unparalleled beauty and solitude you definitely have to go to Casa Alamanda. Many places in the Caribbean are somewhat arid and scrubby, not so here. This villa is nestled in a tropical forest of tall trees, amazing flora and fauna, and birds galore.

The view down to Brewer's Bay and out to Jost Van Dyke is to die for. The bay is clear with easy snorkeling around the coral and there are many species of tropical fish to observe. The beach is beautiful and largely deserted.

The house is super comfortable and well appointed. The roads will definitely inspire your inner Andretti!

I highly recommend hitting the bars and restaurants along the northwest coast (Cane Garden & Apple Bays) and chartering a catamaran (captained) for a day.

Thanks Freddy and Susan for a very special vacation!!!

This was the best experience we've had with a VRBO yet. The house was immaculately maintained, with all the amenities we could have wanted. It was apparent the owners put great thought and effort to ensure their guests want for nothing.

The views and sunsets were spectacular, and the pool was a welcome and refreshing bonus. Most of all, we enjoyed the privacy and ideal location, perched above Brewer's Bay, with some of the best snorkeling around.

John was a tremendous host, communicating regularly to ensure we had everything we needed before, during, and after the trip. We couldn't have asked for a better place, host, and overall experience. I would recommend to friends and family without hesitation. A++

Spectacular views, well appointed home.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Casa Alamanda.

The house was beautifully decorated. it had a well appointed kitchen. All our needs were fulfilled.

Every evening we looked out to the horizon to watch the stunning sun sets as we had our dinner.

The pool was an added bonus with a million dollar view looking over the Caribbean sea. The house itself is perched directly above beautiful Brewers bay.

The bay offers excellent snorkeling.

Thank you John and Susan for making our stay so comfortable!!

Romantic, Secluded, Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Writing this review as my husband and I are headed home from the best week ever but wishing we didn't have to leave. We truly could not of asked for a better vacation, all thanks for the Casa Allamanda. Between the amazing views (that truly never got old) and having everything we could of needed (and more!) at the house, it was a week we will never forget. The secluded location made for an extremely romantic stay. We snorkeled Brewers Bay almost every day and looked forward to the spectacular sunsets each night. The XM Radio was a wonderful feature we used daily along with the blender to make delicious drinks! :) Renting a car is a must if you want to explore this island. We took the ferry to the baths for a day trip, amazing rock structures!

I spent weeks researching different islands and houses to stay at and I am here to tell you STOP looking any further. This was truly the best location on the whole island, the best house and the best views!! We left feeling so rested and rejuvenated and we can't wait to return! I am not the type of person to repeat a vacation spot but we would and will come back to the BVI's and stay at the Casa Allamanda again!

Thank you John for sharing some of your treasure with us!

Romantic Stay on Tortola

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this house immediately. From the minute we arrived it felt like home. The view was amazing. We couldn't get enough of it and spent every morning and every evening just enjoying it. We woke up every morning to the roosters in the distance, and loved it. The outdoor shower was amazing. We only used the indoor shower once. We loved the privacy that this property offers. Swinging in the hammock chairs felt like we were living a dream. We enjoyed the grill and the house was supplied with everything we needed to cook meals. The living room was beautiful but honestly we never used it. We spent every waking moment outside. We loved the pool. If we weren't at the beach we were spending the days floating in the pool. The outdoor speakers were great! We fell in love with our bed. Even lifted up the sheets to find out the brand. It was like sleeping on a cloud! And we loved listening to the ocean falling asleep. There was air conditioning but we didn't need it. The fans provided all the cooling off that we needed in the evening. When we were looking for a place to stay we wanted something that was private, romantic and secluded. Something with an ocean view. A place with a pool and wifi. This place was everything we wanted. We cannot wait to go back!! We are already looking at dates! Thank you Freddy and Susan for your great communication, your helpful instructions and advice, for creating such a beautiful home, and for sharing it with us!

Best view and location on Tortola

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic! The house location just above Brewer's Bay was perfect for getting to quiet beaches on the North side of the island, and the view... it just can't be beat. We literally spent hours just sitting on the porch by the pool taking in the amazing view of Brewer's Bay and Jost van Dyke in the distance. The house is very private and is perfectly setup. The kitchen was very well stocked allowing us to cook breakfasts, some lunches and a dinner or two easily. Outdoor shower was great! Freddy and Susan happily answered all of our questions, and clearly have put a lot of love into this house. We'll be back!
