Our group of 6 absolutely LOVED this villa... Sharlene and crew were a delight to work with. Everything about Towanda is great. I am missing the wonderful views already!!! It's lay out is perfect for everyone to have plenty of privacy if wanted. We cooked daily in the well designed kitchen and grilled lots on the grill. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven with us... we will return for sure! The outdoor rock shower (which is not in the photos) was wonderful!!!
I would also highly recommend renting your car with Dede's, Deadman was wonderful to work with as well!
We had such a great time at Towanda during a 4 day stay in January that we are returning for a week in May! What more can we say.
No escape from the bugs
As others have said in previous reviews, the house is beautiful and the view is incomparable. The management and housekeeping staff are helpful, personable, and just plain nice. Having rented homes all over the Caribbean for the last 20 years we've come to expect certain things both good and bad about any property we rent. Towanda was no different. I read other reviews (including a very negative one that has disappeared) and felt confident that the lack of air conditioning in the bedrooms wouldn't be an issue in December. I was wrong. Mosquito nets block most of the airflow and sleeping without them would mean being eaten alive. Even with the ceiling fan and a stand fan blowing directly on us, my husband and I were miserable. We moved from the master bedroom to the lower bedroom due to the horribly uncomfortable mattress only to find that there was very little airflow to the lower room. For homes in this rental price range the lack of a/c is simply unacceptable especially considering the very real threat of Zika, Dengue, and breakbone fever. Speaking of which: be forewarned- this is truly an open air home. There is absolutely no way to get away from the bugs after sundown. And folks, these are Caribbean mosquitos. They LIKE the taste of DEET. I have more than 40 bites on me and I kept myself covered in toxic spray all day. The house is beautifully decorated but unfortunately there are only two truly comfortable seats in the entire house. (The dining chairs can be made more comfortable by doubling the seat cushions if need be.) There is a fantastic commercial stove but no sharp knives. An immersion blender, but no simple whisk. A beautiful pool that was never warm enough to swim in. I've never been anywhere that the ocean was warmer than a pool! And it was. Easily 10 degrees colder than the ocean. The owners need to consider that while they may love their home as it is, we are paying guests and as such, are looking for value for our vacation dollar. As much as we enjoyed our time on Tortola, our accomodations were so much less than we had hoped for. I found the property on VRBO but got a better rate through another rental agent. Please consider the very real threat of mosquito-borne disease when thinking about renting this property. One last thing: the drive to the property is not for the faint of heart. One lane wide with two way traffic, blind curves, and incredibly steep hills.
Beautiful location, breathtaking views
Quite a lovely villa. Beautiful pool and views. Very unique. Everything is open air, but we were not in the least bit hot. I highly recommend staying at this incredible retreat.
Hope to see you back soon.
All the best for this greeting season.
What a beautiful home! We loved the open air concept and it had amazing views! The sounds of crashing of the waves through the day and frogs at night and only a 10 minute drive to 2 amazing beaches!! Travel to the house did require a 4x4 and after a time or 2 we got used to the drive. The home was very clean and well maintained, customer service from the team was excellent - a few check ins to make sure had everything we needed. We loved Towanda and will be returning!!
