Perfect Views in a Zen Like Atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

The online pictures of Villa Towanda on VRBO don't do it justice because the property has a serene feel and vibe (with just the right touch of Indonesian charm) that simply can't be captured in still photos. The roads up to the property are steep and the location would be difficult to find on your own, so we definitely needed to meet the manager at Long Bay Beach Resort to follow him up. Definitely rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle! We loved the outdoor/indoor living spaces typical in the Caribbean. The management team is very responsive and great to work with. The kitchen and living/dining rooms were under the terrace cover and flowed outside right to the pool. The villa has three self enclosed "suites" consisting of a bedroom and bathroom that are all of approximately equal size...two are stacked (upstairs/downstairs) and the third is upstairs but separated from the other two with an incredible view and outdoor shower. The main problem with the property is that the bedrooms are not air conditioned (and easily could be) and the fans are not sufficient to keep you cool at night with the mosquito nets down (and the electricity sometimes going out at night to turn your fan off). Other than the lack of A/C, it was a perfect stay in a perfect setting.

No escape from the bugs

  • 2 of 5

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.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Beautiful location, breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

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.

Holidays in Tortola BVI

  • 4 of 5

My name is Fabrizio, with my wife, my daughter and 3 friends spent 15 wonderful days of vacation in the beautiful island of Tortola in Villa Towanda.

The very functional and well equipped house is surrounded by a beautiful and lush, well-tended garden, located at a height that allows you to enjoy an exceptional view over Long Bay Beach, Smuggler's Bay and the island of Jost Van Dick, really nice !! Here the peace and tranquility the first thing that hits you !!

Enchanting the beautiful colors of the sunsets sitting in an armchair in front of a glass of wine and then continue with fantastic dinners with the fantastic and tireless sea views, great !!

So beautiful the living area, but very comfortable and functional rooms also each equipped with bathroom and terrace.

A 10-minute walk (downhill!) You can reach the beautiful Long Bay Beach, the return board the car, maybe even seen the 4X4 road curves to get to Villa Towanda.

We congratulate the owners Philippe and Sophie for the house, instead thank Sharlene hospitality and especially JC Pierce for assistance and useful advice for the stay at Villa Towanda.

I recommend anyone who wants to spend at least a week in Tortola or relax and visit the beautiful neighboring islands !!!

Sorry for my english !!

Better than the photos

  • 5 of 5

The one bad thing about Villa Towanda was that it spoiled every other location that my friends and I visited! The views from the villa are incomparable, and the vibe in the house is intimate, relaxed and comfortable. After a day at one of the beaches or out on the water, there was no other place that we wanted to be than Towanda. Period. We cooked in the open kitchen almost every night and sat on the terrace for sunset and moonrise. The view across the bay to Jost is unsettlingly beautiful. I will definitely return. There were so few people at Long Bay beach (just at the bottom of the road!) that it felt like a private beach. No kidding. If you're looking for great restaurants, this may not be the place for you. The Sugar Mill was very good for dinner, and D'Best Cup in Soper's Hole was great for breakfast. Everything else we found was mediocre, but that really didn't matter to us because, as I said, we found we were happiest cooking at home and being mesmerized by the views. The kitchen was extremely well appointed, btw. The owners and managers were extremely kind and helpful as well.
