Ocean Front At Little Apple Bay

Perfect for the two of us

  • 4 of 5

Directly on the ocean front with a beautiful view of Jost Van Dyke. Short walk to a couple of restaurants/bars, beach, and good surfing spot. Very quiet (except for the surf) and a short drive to other restaurants, beaches, attractions and tourist centers like Cane Garden Bay. Ocean Mist unit is clean and well kept with good appliances. Recommend sunset dinner at Banakeet; good food and drinks with an outstanding view. Would not hesitate to suggest a stay here if you are looking for a convenient location to explore Tortola without being immersed in constant commercial activity. A rental car is needed; driving is an experience in itself but is not for the faint=hearted.

The villa was clean, breezy, comfortable, private, perfectly located, & everything we had hoped for

  • 5 of 5

We have been home for about a week, and cannot wait until we are able to return to the Ocean Mist unit at Apple Surf Villas. Our stay was a dream come true and exactly what we were looking for. Our villa was clean, breezy, private and the perfect home base for our trip. With a fully equipped kitchen, we made most of our meals at home in an effort to have a more budget-friendly trip. I can't think of a more beautiful dining room than a patio that literally sits atop the ocean waves. We spent countless hours on our patio - a perfect place for books, meals, cocktails, sunshine and surf. With concrete steps leading to the water, we swam directly in front of our unit multiple times. At night, we drifted off to sleep, soothed by the roar of the sea and the cooling ocean breeze. We rented a car and spent the week exploring the island. It was wonderful to have Ocean Mist to return to as our home base. Kathi was fantastic to work with: accommodating, professional and exceptionally prompt responding to inquiries and requests. We cannot say enough positive things about our experience. This was our belated honeymoon, and we feel so lucky to have spent it here. We couldn't recommend Kathi and Apple Surf Villas more highly!

My stay in Apple Bay was unreal. I didn't realize such perfect places actually existed? Living in LA, the lack of people and traffic was refreshing. You can watch the surf conditions change throughout the day, so when it looks good you can grab a board and walk one minute to the break. The owner is very helpful and the condo is right on the water. It's one of those vacation places you don't want to leave!

Beautiful views, sun, surf and a nice little villa to stay in.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the villa in November. The villa is small but has everything you need and the location is great. You need a car but it looked to me like you would need one wherever you stay on Tortola. The road is private, it looks like a very safe area, and it was very quiet. Relatively speaking on the 'quiet', of course! The house is right on a seawall and the waves crash just below your windows non-stop, which for me was perfect - very soothing and I slept really well for the first time in months. I loved waking up to the sound of the surf; very relaxing. There are a number of beaches nearby, several restaurants within walking distance and more within a short drive, and markets and shops are about 10 minutes away at Soper's Hole. There's a grill and a nice little patio and if you don't feel like going out, a grilled steak while watching the body surfers and pelicans is a nice change. The owners are very pleasant to deal with and the villa was very clean when I arrived. I highly recommend this place.

Ocean Mist Condo at Apple Surf Villas

  • 3 of 5

This condo is a tidy small place that is well equipped and convenient to most attractions on the island. The internet worked well, there were plenty of towels, and being able to go swimming right out front in Apple Bay was divine! It is a good value for the nightly rate.

Because it is built into the sea wall on a surf break it is quite noisy. During my stay a low-pressure system offshore pushed waves to six feet and as they pounded the escarpment it sounded like an artillery range and shook the whole house. This resulted in having to keep the storm shutters closed most of the time as sea spray splashed through the windows and coated everything in salt.

If you are a surfer this is an ultimate location, but it is not a quiet place.
