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.
