About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + futon, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Da Blue House is an awesome little traditional West Indian cottage that offers great value for money as an idyllic taste of Caribbean life for someone on a budget. Surrounded by a fenced-in yard, the cottage is child and pet friendly and the ocean is just a few steps away...

The master bedroom has a king-size bed and the second bedroom has a trundle bed which pulls out to become 2 twin beds. A futon in the living room offers bedding for an additional 5th guest (child only). Both bedrooms have efficient, quiet wall-mount AC units and the living room has a 32' flatscreen TV and DVD player. The one bathroom has a shower and there is an additional shower outside for rinsing off after the beach. The kitchen is equipped with a 4 burner propane stove and a large refrigerator. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining room, although most people like to eat on the covered side porch which has seating for 6 at a picnic table and bench. There is also a charcoal grill.

The ocean is just across the street from the front yard. There is seating on the front porch as well as large comfortable garden furniture so you can sit and watch the surf, the sunset and the people walking by...or take a nap on the hammock in the shade of the palm trees!

And then of course there's the surf...'off the wall' is in front of the house, also in Carrot Bay is Donkey Spot and School House. Apple Bay and the Bomba Shack are a 10-15 minute walk, Cane Garden Bay is a 10 minute drive.

Carrot Bay really is the loveliest neighborhood in Tortola with friendly people stopping to chat and welcome. The awesome Da Cola Pot restaurants is moving to new premises in Carrot Bay soon and we have The North Shore Shell Museum for a very eclectic setting and offering the best local dishes like rot is, shrimp, fresh fish and fantastic mango, banana and coconut pancakes. There is also the more upscale Sugar Mill for a special night out or their more relaxed beachfront restaurant for lunch (5 minute walk). Bananakeet has the best sunset views and cocktails as well as a great menu and is a 5 minute drive.

There is a telephone for local calls and incoming overseas call and we also have wifi. Just ask to borrow a selection of games and sand toys for kids.

Owner info

About the owner: Having lived in Da Blue House for several years we can most definitely recommend it - the views are beautiful, the neighbours are friendly and the surf is closeby (across the street sometimes). We only moved because 2 kids, a big dog and 30 + surfboards is a little more than we started out with!

Why the Owner Chose Tortola, British Virgin Islands:
It's a great deal and it's the real deal if you want to really experience island living! Tortola is awesome for active people looking for some aquatic adventure as well as people looking for just a quiet place with some sun, great scenery and a warm pristine ocean. We love to surf, kite-board, skate board, paddle board and motor boat. It's really safe here and we are constantly told how unspoiled and relaxed it is compared to other Caribbean islands.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We used to have cows wander across our front lawn until we had a puppy and kids and put up a fence....there is still the odd goat, chicken or cow that passes! Da Blue House made us feel part of a community and you never tire of falling asleep to the sound of the ocean outside tor window. Try it out!
