My husband and I live next door. We make sure our guest can contact us anytime needed, but we also give them privacy for them to enjoy the place. There is another piece of land that divides us with many fruit trees and flowers. 15 min walking from Sage Mountain National Park, 10 min driving to Cane Garden Bay, 10 min driving to Road Town. Enjoy the view of Peter Island, Norman Island, and Virgin Gorda in a morning sunshine from one of the highest points in Tortola.

About Marlo Downing

I love traveling, tasting new flavours, cooking with my husband and family. I also manage Shangri-La Villa Rental, with the help of my family 5 of us . We all understand the importance of a good and peaceful accommodation. I believe honest communication is important and providing the extra is always in my list. I like to treat and receive people the way I like to be treated.

Marlo Downing purchased this villa in 2015

Why Marlo Downing chose Tortola

This place is recommended for families with no children younger than 13. Or couples. I can rent the place with one room or the 3 rooms. Also non crawling babies are welcome, we provide a play pen that can work like a crib.

Get away from city and enjoy the sound of our nature, crickets , frogs, birds, roosters, chickens and wind. Hot water jacuzzi , outside BBQ and oven with stove to cook.

What makes this villa unique

My husband and his brother decided to fully renovate the Guest House. Their father Mr. Roger Downing who started an Architectural firm in BVI. He named Thor Downing the new director in 2010, who has proudly reached a high reputation and the BVI Yacht and Property Guide has given the firm a recognition for the last 3 years, best service selected by the readers and clients.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jen and family You are always welcome back to Villa ShangriLa. We were very lucky to have you here. Next time you come, we need to make mojitos together. The herbs are growing like crazy and I don´t know what to do with so much mint :-) Jen , Chris and family are people who can be welcome in any Villa rental. They are very respectful and clean with the place and they are wonderful people too. Hugs and all our best

Amazing property with an incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed 12 incredible nights over the New Year and loved every day. Marlo was great when showing us around the property and kept us in the loop if there was maintenance needed or what day/time the cleaning service was to show up.

The house is in an incredible location with easy access to all parts of the island. You’re only 10 minutes from many beaches which was a huge plus for us. The view is even better than in the pictures and the hot tub was truly one of our favorite parts of the property. Marlo was also very considerate of our privacy while in the house which really did make it feel like our own private escape while we were there. I’d highly suggest staying here!

Wonderful home with fabulous amenities and views

  • 5 of 5

a wonderful holiday and vacation home. Marlo and Thor are wonderful host and are there for you for anything. The home is perfectly appointed and has a beautiful exotic feel to it. My kids did their workouts outside in a wonderfully landscaped area reminiscent of tropical paradise. I recommend this home to anyone

Immaculate

  • 5 of 5

Before I even start my review of the property, allow me to mention what a pleasure it was working with Marlo and Thor. They are a breath of fresh air, when it comes to villa rentals. Extremely accommodating, and truly a pleasure.

The property is enclosed in a beautiful bamboo fence situated along the entire perimeter. A beautiful walkway leading past a stone water fountain leads into the front door of the property. Upon entering you're greeted by ample sunlight coming in from the skylight up above (loved that). Three bedrooms (all with AC) with super comfortable beds, well maintained and clean. Surprisingly, this place has the fastest wifi I've seen on the island (lived in the islands in 2013). We didn't use it much, but when we did, it was live and good to go.

I really like the fact that the villa is central to everything one would need in the island. You're literally 10-15 mins away from town, beaches, shopping etc. This is converse to the times I stayed on the west end, where getting to town would become a bit burdensome, especially during rush hour.

Marlo/Thor, thank you for everything. I will be back very soon!!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I found this great house in the mountains for a week vacation with our family. It was our first time to the BVI's and Marlo and Thor were great hosts! They were quick to respond to the questions we had before arriving along with island recommendations and ferry schedules. It was the perfect location being in the middle of Tortola, only a ten minute drive from Road Town and 20-25 minute drive to anywhere else on the island. The open concept house was plenty spacious for the four of us. We enjoyed breakfast on the patio every morning and mojitos (with fresh mint from Marlo) in the afternoon. Each bedroom had AC but we never needed it because there was always a great breeze. We were welcomed with a personal tour of the house and a cell phone was provided if we ever needed anything. I would recommend renting a car (we rented from Jerry's) the island was fairly easy to navigate. We had a fantastic vacation and will be back!!
