About The Owner

I am a lifelong journalist having worked in newspapers and magazines..then television. I was an on air reporter for CNN, helped create the format, write and report for "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" and went on to work for everyone from "Inside Edition" to "Entertainment Tonight". My new book "Manpot's Tales of the Tropics" is currently available through "Smashwords". It explains a great deal about my love affair with Tortola!!

The Owner purchased this villa in 1990

Why The Owner chose Tortola

I took one look at the view from CRC when the realtor showed it to me and knew I had to buy it. Years later we totally remodeled the house and added the breathtaking master loft suite.

What makes this villa unique

In summertime you can stretch out on your own white sand beach and swim and snorkel in the gin clear water. In winter a world class wave is two minutes away. There is nowhere more perfect to fall into a beach lifestyle..even if it means taking a nap on one of the balconies or decks! or sipping a cocktail under the stars!

perfect beach bunagloo

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had the most wonderful time at Malcolm and Candace's place. You really won't find a better location. It's just a few doors down from Sebastians which has a little restaurant and is an easy taxi location (although I would recommend renting a car). We loved sitting out on the patio area watching the pelicans dive for fish and falling asleep listening to the waves crash on the rocks below.

The place itself was artistic and cute- the only thing I might say that if you have a bad back, maybe the bed wouldn't be great for you. The fans and the winds kept us just the right temperature throughout our visit.

Would definitely recommend this gem. They were wonderful hosts and we can't wait to return!!!

“the "Billion Dollar View" as they say is right on the money!!”

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just came back recently and had a wonderful time staying at this villa. The aquamarine crystal clear waters, white sand and palm trees...sailboats sailing carelessly by, pelicans soaring and diving for fish, the island of Jost van Dyke just off in the distance...sounds like pure heaven and it is!!! here on earth! Chateau Relaxeau Caribe (CRC) is just steps from the water's edge right on the beautiful beach of Little Apple Bay.

If you circumnavigate the entire island of Tortola you will find that this beachfront property is really a gem, there are just not that many villas right on the beach on Tortola!

The studio villa is perfect for those looking for some solitude and relaxation but within walking distance of Sebastians and the famous Bomba Shack. It was a perfect space for a couple. They did have a futon if you have a spare friend or children :) The unit was clean and comfortable and the kitchenette had everything you could need. Our ability to be steps from the beach was the icing on the cake.

Cane Garden Bay, Bananakeet, Smugglers Cove and Soper's Hole are all within a short drive.

If you are a surfer this is the spot for sure! The hosts Malcolm and Candace are just wonderful people. We give CRCBVI 5 stars, 2 thumbs up and an A++!

Managers couldn't be nicer

  • 4 of 5

This a very artistic little property. It is right on the beach, the rocky part between Sebastian's main units and their newer units. It was easy to walk down to Apple Bay or Long Bay for beach or food. There was someone on sight that was so helpful and kind, they were very responsive to restocking missing supplies.

The place had lots of cute little touches and you could tell that someone had really tried to provide all the little 'things' one ends up needing. There were plenty of towels, and the kitchen was very efficient given it's tiny size. We enjoyed sleeping to the sounds of surf every evening.

I would not recommend it for families, or even romantic couples. It was a great surf shack, a place to crash your head at night after being out all day, but the downs were that is was quite dirty, most of the furniture was broken and in need of repair, and very rustic.

I don't think it is worth the price we paid.

Less that 100 yards from the villa is a world class surf spot (mainly in winter) right in front of the legendary " Bomba Shack". Half a mile over the hill from the villa is a resort with spa , tennis courts and pool. There are also three restaurants right near the villa for breakfast lunch or dinner. Just over the hill on the south shore is the ferry d0ck with easy access to other islands and four good restaurants. It could not be more convenient.
