About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, 6 sleeps

Ewing House is on a hillside, 60 feet above sea level, bordered by the ocean on two sides and overlooks the ‘mile-long” Long Bay Beach. From all bedroom and common rooms you can see a number of other islands, the most well known being Jost Van Dyke and St. Thomas while enjoying views of endless sailboats, various birds and fish in the waters below. You are a 1-3 minute walk to the water as the beach begins at the foot of our driveway- about 50 yards from our house. We are one of only a few houses on the island that are really located right on a usable beach. This is a very beautiful beach, which you may recognize as our view often appears on calendars and other publications on the Caribbean. We do feel that we have the most beautiful view on the island. Others must feel the same way as we have had one couple take the house for a month each year for 25 years and a number of other couples who have come in the area of five years or more.

Located on Tortola’s West End, Ewing House has walking access to excellent beaches for sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling and surfing. West End has many excellent restaurants, a number of running/walking loops along the ocean, tennis and sailing as well as scuba diving day trips leaving from nearby Soper’s Hole. Of course, one can also just read in the shade of the porch or sun bathe and watch the waves roll by. The house has 3 bedrooms, each with the same view and size. We had rented numerous houses and generally someone was disappointed when their room was smaller. Each bedroom has its own bath and dressing area. While we prefer ceiling fans and open windows, the bedrooms now also have air conditioning so you have the choice.

The house comes with daily maid service and the maid always gets great reviews. Dion Stoutt manages our house. He has been one of our neighbors and friend for many years. He is very easy to deal with and has an amazing knowledge of the island. Both he and the maid can help you with any problems or questions that you might have. There are so many things to do on the island and ferry trips to numerous other islands are possible. We always visit at least one other island every time that we are there.

    Our children, now 32 and 34 have been coming since then were a few months old. The house is nice for children as the living room is open on the beach side which gives a lovely airy feeling without the sun exposure. We used to take them to the beach early and late in the day and then maybe go somewhere where it was covered for lunch....moreless

Car: Recommended

We walk to several restaurants and quite a few more are withing 1-2 miles. Horseback riding has been available in the past but we do not know if this is still the case. The island has a botanical garden and a national park for walking on the top of one of the mountain peaks. There are a number of nearby grocery stores but a rental car or taxi is strongly suggested. There are many nearby beaches and each is unique. The house has two bedroom upstairs and another on the floor below. The downstairs bedroom has a small additional kitchen. The beds can be made up as twin beds or king sized. Beach chairs are usually available but they deteriorate quickly, can not be bought on the island so they will not seem special. We are within 10-15 minutes of ferries to other islands.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1973

About the owner: We originally built the home as a family with my husband, myself, my sister and my mother. The house was managed by my mom who was a pediatrican in Ohio and although she died in 1994, the house is still sometimes referred to as Dr. Ewing's house. My husband and I live in Greenwich Connecticut and my sister lives in New Rochelle, New York. I have two children, ages 32 and 34, and my son, Chris Relyea, has helped with the rentals of the house for several years. The web site has lots of nice information on the island. My children have each come to the island since they were a few months old. They now have small children. It is a great place for children as they can play in the house during the day and as the living room is open to the sea side, you had the feeling of being at the beach without the sun. We would take them to the beach in the early morning and afternoon and then maybe have lunch in some protected restaurant in between.

Why the Owner Chose Tortola, British Virgin Islands:
We first visited the island as a family in 1973 and left the island 9 days later having purchased our site. The island really opened to tourists in 1966 when a small bridge was built connecting the small island called Beef Island to Tortola and an airport was built on Beef Island. We were one of the very first non-native families to build on the island and feel that we bought a particulary beautiful sight. We walk down our driveway to the beach. We are off a good paved road. This was important to us as so many homes are not on paved roads and we don't mind bouncing around sometimes, we don't want to do it constantly. Also we are in walking distance to a number of good restaurants and hotels with their amenities. As we are on a point, we have a lot of privacy.We like being just above the beach as we don't have a sand fly problem if there is one and we get more breeze.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We do have the view that we have seen on many calendars. It was on the Costco brochure last year for cruise travel. My mother was once in the dentist chair and saw it on his calendar hanging before her.As I said ,it is a very short walk to the beach. It is easy to pop down and have a swim. We do have beach chairs if you want to stay but we frequently just go down and swim and then come up and enjoy the comforts of the open house as the walk back and forth is so easy.. We are very close to a number of good restaurants.
