Why Lisa & Kezzia Gray chose Road Town

The Allamanda Apartment is one of a kind in Road Town, Tortola. This one bedroom, one bathroom apartment is spacious and gorgeously furnished. It is situated on the waters edge, including a private dock with views of a quiet but active harbor. It's located in a complex of apartments giving you a safe & friendly space.

Centrally located, easy to find, 5 minutes from everything town has to offer and just a short drive over the hill to explore Tortola's stunning array of beaches.

What makes this apartment unique

The Allamanda Apartment is located on the waters edge of Road Town Harbour. It is a tranquil escape in the heart of the town & the perfect accomdation for a holiday or work trip.

The apartment has one bedroom, one bathroom, a spacious living/dining area, a homely and cosy kitchen, a sun room & doors that open onto a 750 sq ft deck on the waters edge. The harbour is busy with sail boats leaving & returning yet it offers a peaceful place to soak up the sun, read & relax.

The on shore breeze keeps the apartment cool with fresh air, fans and an A/C unit in the bedroom are available when the breeze is not.

Conveniently situated in town it is only 5 minutes from all that Road Town has to offer (shops, restaurants, banks, ferry, taxi, day sail, dive shops, bars, night life) and a short ride over the hill to begin exploring many of Tortola's beautiful beaches.

We had a great time in Tortola.

  • 4 of 5

Lisa and Kezzia did a great job of taking care of us. The apt was comfortable for our family. You do need a car if staying here.

Nice location but needs some attention to detail

  • 3 of 5

Overall the place provided what we needed but I've listed out both the good and bad. I think if broken items weren't placed out for use I would have given a better rating. This was also the most expensive 3 nights that we paid for a place towards the end of a 9 night vacation around Tortolla. For what we got, it was not worth what we paid.

Good:

Location is within walking distance of food and of the marina. We were looking to charter a sail so this was perfect.

The view of harbor was great

The number of fans in the place was great

Plenty of space to spread out and relax

Bad:

The gas burners on the stove didn't seem to work at first but the owner quickly responded and took a look. We had 2 to cook with which was fine.

The blender was broken and the lid shattered when we tried to use it (old plastic)

The kitchen drawer fell off when we opened it.

The speakers did not work for the stereo in the living room

There was used soap left in the shower (prior guest?)

The mattress seemed old and hard

The deck near the back door is old and coming apart, step carefully!

Private and perfect for our purposes

  • 4 of 5

Allemanda is a great set-up for a stay in Road Town. Spacious interior with decent wifi, shower, bed, and full kitchen. The deck outside is pleasant and the harbor is pretty. Very relaxing. Beautiful breezes, didn't need AC, but I imagine during the summer it could be stuffy. Because the interior is exposed to the outside elements, open windows, appliances and furniture are a little funky but we felt comfortable and safe. Easy to walk into town. Close to provisions. Lisa was a terrific host. Everything was very nice. Would stay there again. Note that if you're looking for a luxury apartment , this is not it. Traditional island style accommodations are offered and it was perfect for us.

Loved the little apartment. So wonderful and so convenient to everything!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, it was a wonderful experience. It was so convenient to Town and all surrounding beaches. The deck off the apartment was full of wonderful activity. Hope to rent it again next year!! Thank you, Lisa!!

Missed DoDo

  • 3 of 5

Lisa is very pleasant to work with and responds very quickly to all correspondence.. This property is on the water which makes watching Island traffic very nice. There isn't much patio furniture that is usable but we made things work. It says it sleeps six but if you have more than two people you might check into it further. It says there's a queen size sofa pullout couch and futon but that was NOT the case. There was neither. Instead there was a couch that would lay flat and had a bar running down the middle so you could only sleep on either side. It is very convenient for town. I was so looking forward to seeing dodo but I never did and I really hope something hasn't happened to the bird. If you're planning a trip for two this is a great place to stay but if you have more people check twice.
