About the Property

This is a special one bedroom efficiency with screened in private deck and spa.

Breaking News.. We just enclosed the front porch making this more private and bug free. Perfect hillside hideaway to get away from it all.
This airy bedroom suite is naturally ventilated with fans and is not equipped with air conditioning.
The suite contains a queen size bed, efficiency kitchen, Jacuzzi tub, sun deck with adjoining covered veranda to 'chill out' and watch the boats in the harbor.

Car: Recommended

The Crows Nest Guest House is located in a tropical landscape setting adjacent to and slightly higher then the Century House Villa which overlooks Sopers Hole, West End, a natural harbor and anchorage for many private and charter boats for the BVI's.

We recommend guests fly into St. Thomas USVI and take the ferry over to West End, Tortola. Make sure to arrive in STT by 3:00 pm to make the connection.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Paul and Judy met in 1973 and have been going strong ever since. After moving to 'the islands' in 1986 to run a 76' wooden ketch they stayed active in the marine trades for twenty four years. In that time Paul, a woodworker and carpenter, and Judy, the interior decorator and landscape architect, took ten years to build the Century House Villa and Crows Nest Guest house. This labor of love was designed by Michael Arneborg a prolific architect for the area. The Crows Nest was meant to be the 'rental we would want to discover for our own' Paul and Judy will bid you a warm welcome and will give you as much or as little advice as you need as you discover 'natures little secret' BVI Tourist Board.

Why the Owner Chose Tortola, British Virgin Islands:
Boungainvilleas, Palm trees, Frangipani, and stonework frame the water views from your verandah overlooking Sir Frances Drakes Channel.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Watching the sunrise over Sir Frances Drakes Channel while planning your day and futures while savoring morning coffee and tea in the hot tub. Seeing a 43 meter megayacht dock at the marinas down below. Having a 'sun downer' from the newly enclosed, veranda while seeing the evening sky descend around you. Catching a meteor shower while viewing the Milky Way.
